#100daysofhappiness: Day 51

Well now that busy season is over we actually get to enjoy spending time together during the week!  We went and enjoyed one of our favorite wine bars called Winslow’s.  I enjoyed my Sangria on the patio! Bonus that they also have amazing food!  Their mac and cheese… to die for.

#100daysofhappiness: Day 32

I LOVE home decor…. I am always drawn to buy new items.  I really love apothecary jars.  I have 6 in my kitchen.  Some serve a purpose (holding flour and sugar).  Some are just for decor.  Here is my favorite grouping/use for my jar.

WINE CORK HOLDER! I plan on saving them and using them in another project but it is so fun having friends over and adding to the jar.  It is like a jar full of fun memories!

I feel the best place I have found these at is HomeGoods… They usually have a great variety or sizes/shapes and sometimes even colors!  Both below are from there AND found a great Yankee Candle on sale there too!

#100daysofhappiness: Day 5

I promise a blog other than “100daysofhappiness” is coming soon! But in the mean time here is my Day 5!

My husband is a CPA so he is in “busy season”. AKA I hardly see him :(.

Well tonight Grey’s Anatomy comes on so I am treating myself to a glass of red wine! YUM-O!

Pinterest Challenge: SINK OR SWIM… in the bathtub

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am a bathoholic.

I could take a hot bath everyday even during those long hot Texas summers. I love taking time to relax and just having some time to myself.  Sometimes my date to my bath is a glass of wine, other times it is my iPad and some Netflix.

I had looked all around Pinterest one day to find a good detox bath.  Of course I wanted to take one that night so I needed to find ingredients that I already had… my lazy butt need not to make a run to the store!

I came across this Pin —-> HERE

Which lead to me this blog:  sunshinesouthern.wordpress.com

So off I went to hunt down my ingredients:

Baking Soda: CHECK

Epsom Salt: CHECK

Green Tea Bags: CHECK

I took the detox bath and really did enjoy it! Side note: the green tea makes the bath water look like you peed ALOT in it but OH WELL!

I didn’t feel dizzy in the bath but when I got up and was drying off WHOA hello headache.  BUT it went away quickly.  I really like how the detox made my skin feel and it was UBER relaxing so I feel like I will do it again.  I may continue to adventure and try new ones but I would say this Pinterest Challenge was a success!

What detox baths do you like best?
