Every once in a while I feel completely stressed out and overwhelmed by my work, by the pressure to learn German as soon as possible to be able to lead a normal life here in Graz, by organizing our wedding, by the life in general. Sometimes, curling up on the couch with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate can manage to cheer me up, and sometimes, stronger solutions are needed. That's when I fully appreciate the big bathtub in our bathroom (we didn't have any in Paris, since we were living in a teeny tiny apartmen with only a shower to play with). Now, I can truly enjoy a long hot bath and experiment with different bath foams, salts and soaks. This pampering is an amazing way to relax, forget the stress as well as to discover new brands and fragrances. And who could say no to a promise of a soft, glowing skin? These are the bath pearls and salts currently on my radar. Put them, a soft music, a good book and a few candles together, and I'm happy again!
