Today was my first day back at work since the beginning of July. Having enjoyed just over 8 weeks of relaxing and pleasing myself, the beginning of the new school year can be a bit stressful as I try to get my head around timetables, displays, class lists and remembering how to teach and get the kids to do what they’re told!
So, as part of my preparation in the last couple of days, as I make sure that my clothes for the week are ironed, my bag is packed and my new school shoes ready to go, I also take time to relax.
This year, that has taken the form of luxuriating in a Lushious bath with a Tadaima Okaeri Bath Bomb. Their website promises:
Make yourself at home with woody sandalwood, syrupy tonka absolute and sweet vanilla. As it dissolves, this sugary but spicy blend fills your bathroom with the reassuring scent of freshly baked cinnamon buns. Known for its soothing effects on the skin, sandalwood is a gentle emollient that will leave your skin feeling calm and comforted.Lush UK
At first splash, it was one of their ‘soft’ baths bombs that foams rathers than fizzes. But once the star part of the bomb got going, it started to bubble and fizz and opened up to reveal a golden coloured cave of fizzy loveliness. My bath was filled with a golden, shimmery lustre (that is ok for the evironment) and my nostrils were filled with the exotic spells of a Morrocan souk. Not that I’ve ever been to Morroco, but it’s how I imagine it would smell wandering around the spice stalls. It was enough to prolong the summer holidays for just a little bit longer anyway!
