A Tale of a Bath, a Candle and some Chlorophyllic Water

Some days you just need some time out and it can be nice to take a break from our busy and often technology-heavy lives. Autumn is also a time when it is easier to get sick so looking after yourself is even more crucial. Lately I have started having a teaspoon of Chlorophyll with my water in the morning. The colour makes it look like a glass of flat Coke but it tastes better than it looks. I got mine from Priceline and at $20 for a bottle it isn't cheap but I see it as an investment in my health. The 500 ml will give you about 100 glasses of water so if you think about the bigger picture it isn't so bad after all. The benefits include supporting the detoxification in the body and Chlorophyll can also improve the skin appearance and its condition. Chlorophyll is also high in Vitamin K.
I have also started having baths again. I used to do them and then I just kind of forgot because they take time and I feel it can be quite unenvironmental. Then again, sometimes you just need to indulge and you may as well make it a little special. I lit my Slatkin & Co candle which is still going strong. Even when it isn't lit it just smells delicious.
For my afternoon spa session I wanted to use my sparkling new 1Skinsolution Travel Pack. It contains a Lime Thyme Body Wash, Vanilla Bean Body Cream and Bath & Shower Chrystals which come in 50 ml sizes. The Vanilla Bean lip balm (which is good enough to eat by the way) was an added bonus.
1Skinsolution is an Australian brand created and developed by Raylene Barton. She uses natural ingredients and doesn't compromise on quality. She is currently working on developing some tinted lip balms so stay tuned for the next chapter for 1Skinsolution. 



My reading material was a photo album by Frankie magazine.
The Bath & Shower Crystals are absolutely amazing. They are a mix of sea salt, minerals, brown sugar, lavender and lime. You can actually apply it to your body as an exfoliant before you go in the shower or use it as a bath salt. Sadly I am a clutz so I managed to drop it all in the bath so I didn't get to try the exfoliant trick.

Put the lid on ladies or there will be no more crystals.
I also put on some John Mayer, I am a big fan of his music. I have pre-ordered his new album called Born and Raised which will be delivered on Friday. This is almost as exciting as Eurovision and Snog, Marry, Avoid being on at the same night. 
All in all it was an amazing afternoon and I felt so much better for it. I applied some Vanilla Bean Body Cream and it smelt fantastic. Even 24 hours later I can still smell the sweet scent of vanilla. 

How do you relax? Are you a bath fan? Do you like vanilla? Will you be watching Eurovision, Snog, Marry, Avoid or both?

  2. Just on the chlorophyll thing - I've been doing this all year too at the suggestion of my naturopath - however I buy the Grant's version which turns my water a delightful green colour (and tastes of spearmint!) which is much more appealing to me! It's also only $14.95 I think. I also add a splash of aloe vera juice into my water as it helps my body absorb vitamins, as well as being soothing on the digestive system :)

  3. Oh, these products look amazing! I am such a sucker for vanilla products and love travel sized prodz as they're so much more convenient! I do miss having a bathtub...all I have is a shower, sadly.

    I was doing the chlorophyll thing for a while but gave up after a while...I really should start it up again soon!

  5. I love having pamper days! I have to say the only 1skin solution product I owned is the lip balm but I'm just really fussy when it comes to vanilla scents so I ended up giving it to my housemate, They looked like a really nice brand though! I've been looking at different vitamins and supplements lately too as I often pick up head colds when it gets chillier and just hate feeling all stuffed up. I'm thinking of having a little splurge on iherb, let me know if you have any more recommendations! Oh and LOVE John Mayer, what a babe! Although I don't like him with long hair!
