6 Ways I Make My Nightly Bath Even More Blissful

Whenever I tell someone that I didn't have a shower in my house until I was in my late teens, they're always incredibly shocked. What can I say? Both my mum and I loved baths, so we never really felt the need to reconfigure our entire (relatively small) bathroom to fit an unsightly cubical. As far as I was concerned, showers were an oddity. That was until I started working and the shower my mum had finally permitted my stepdad to install came in especially handy when I was running late (which, admittedly, was just about every day).

Now that I have a bathroom all my own—with a shower and everything—I still prefer to soak than stand. I have a bath almost every night, particularly in the winter months. A bath is a perfect way to unwind after a stressful or busy day or to warm yourself from the colder temperatures. Having spent so much of my time soaking in a bath, you could say I'm a bit of an expert at drawing them, so I thought I'd share with you the products I use to elevate my precious tub time.
