I'm so sorry

Hello, to anyone who reads this blog. I'm Alicia, the creator of this magical space. If you hadn't noticed I haven't posted a single thing in quite some time. There is a reason and it's very personal.

I've been struggling a lot lately with issues I've been dealing with my entire life. They've come around to nearly destroy a great relationship that I'm working my ass off to rebuild. Please understand that there will be nothing to come on this blog for quite some time. I apologize if you're very into reading this but I just can't keep up appearances for the sake of an audience. Thanks for understanding.

Bath Cocktail "Yuzu Fondue"

Yep, that's right. Yuzu Fondue. As most people know fondue is traditionally a pot of melted cheese that folks dip bread in. However, here in 'merica we decided to add chocolate and fruit. Thanks USA, chocolate is so much better than cheese!!

 As always lets talk about the bubbles. It always surprises me, and I'm not sure why at this point, that the bubbles actually smell like the bubble bar. I would figure that they'd just smell like bubbles. I know, laugh at me if you want. These beautiful bubbles smelled exactly like chocolate. They were very thin bubbles but they managed to last over 30 minutes in the tub.

When I first put the fizzbanger in the bath tub I smelled the gardenia. I'm not a huge fan of that scent so I was a little nervous but after about 2 minutes the scent changed to an apple scent MIXED with a little gardenia. It was really nice. I guess I can't really say I'm not a fan of gardenia I just need to have it in small doses and fizzbanger delivered that.

When all was said and done, and everything was in the tub the room smelled very amazing. My skin didn't escape that amazing scent either. I smelled of gardenia and apple for quite a few hours.

I do have to say that I am not a fan of how the water turned out. It turned the water into a gray mess of ... I don't even know. I've stepped into some odd colored water but this just looked like dirty dish water. I've used blackberry in the past and it was a lot more vibrant than this. I'm thinking it was the fizzbanger that dulled it down.

This cocktail also left streaks on the side of the tub. I got to these sooner than I did with the Drive In Movie cocktail and they came off quite easily.

Neither the color of the water or the streaks that were left of the tub would stop me from using this bath cocktail again. I loved the way it smelled and I loved the way I smelled afterward.

This bath cocktail features 1/2 of a Yuzu and Cocoa Bubbleroon, 1 Blackberry Bath Bomb, and 1/2 of a Fizzbanger Bath Bomb. See the bath cocktail in action!!

Bath Cocktail "Drive In Movie"

I know this is probably going to sound cliche but what a lush bath this was. It's probably the sweetest bath cocktail I've ever had the pleasure of lavishing in.

Every single scent made it's appearance while I was in the bath. The cotton candy scent from the creamy candy bubble bar, the vanilla from the Twilight, and the lavender from the Pink bath bomb.

The bubbles were quite fluffy, as you can see from the picture on the left, (and no my leg is not actually that big) and they lasted for 30 minutes or so. That's an unfortunate thing for someone who has a jetted tub. When the bubbles last that long you can't turn on the jets because it "re-ups" the bubbles and basically swallows you whole.

My favorite thing about this bath was the fact that I smelled of vanilla and lavender all night long. It actually helped me get to sleep.

Something that I didn't much care for were the pink streaks it left on the side of my tub. I actually had to pull out the bleach cleaner to get them off. I scrubbed with a washcloth and water, a scouring pad, and I finally gave in and squirted some clorox on them and they came right off.

Although I don't have a photo of it, the pink BB also left little pink hearts in the bottom of the tub. This isn't necessarily a problem I'm just not one for "floating friends".

All in all I love this bath and I would absolutely use it again. I think, for my sake, I'd probably sock the pink BB so it doesn't leave friends behind.

This bath cocktail features Pink Bath Bomb, 1/2 a Twilight Bath Bomb, and a small chunk of the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar. See this bath cocktail in action!

Socking A Bath Bomb

Well I guess I'm also having issue with my camera. I know I took photos so that I could post them on my blog and they're not there. I guess if you watched the video you know what the deal is.

My technological equipment hates me.
