After a crappy and hormonal day yesterday, I was feeling so BLAAAH that I decided to take this morning off to cheer myself up.
Usually I like to 1) get stuff done to feel productive, 2) bake something yummy and beautiful to feel creative, 3) force myself to exercise so I feel all righteous, 4) force myself to clean my house so I feel cleansed, or 5) do something a bit unexpected to lift my spirits.
(I don’t go shopping because that always goes wrong!!)
Anyway, today I needed a serious case of spirit lifting!
I road tested the new Beauty Survival Kit by GENERICS Urban Apothecary.

When I visited the store, all the smells and scents wafting around the shop were just heavenly!

There is a mineral body mask, organic body lotion, organic body custard, vegan lip balm, lip brush, mascara wand, dual eye shadow brush, eye shadow / highlighting brush, organic botanical perfume, tinned vegan soy candle, organic face moisturiser… and the best selling Cleopatra’s Rose Milk Bath.
Cleopatra’s Rose Milk Bath
Oh what a treat! I haven’t had a foot soak in years!
Knowing that I was going to take some pretty photos, I snipped a huge bunch of fresh roses from my garden to decorate my tub.
I blocked out 1 hour from my schedule, I grabbed a book, armed myself with a towel and set up a little basin of hot/warm water.
I sprinkled half the milk bath powder into the water, although I think I was supposed to use more.
I gave it a stir and the gorgeous rose fragrance filled my living room.
The foot soak was AMAZING!
It was immediately calming, relaxing and totally indulgent.
After the soak (less than an hour), my feet felt so refreshed and soft. You can use them in a regular bath too, which I imagine would be equally amazing.
These vials of milk bath powder would make great Christmas presents too!
Hope you enjoyed my photos!
They were so fun (and relaxing) to take :)
