SoapSox Bath Scrub: Hunter the Gator Review

SoapSox Bath Scrub: Hunter The Gator Review & Giveaway

When I was young I loved bathes, and I loved playing in the bathtub. I would pretend that my toys were a town, and the washcloth was an evil blanket meant to cover the world from the sun. I started this like with an imagination, and as I aged and got older my imagination changed but the fun of bath time did not.

A couple of years ago I was watching Shark Tank, as I often do, and saw these super cute character wash cloths for kids. My first thought at the time was that I wish they had those when I was a kid and wondered why it had taken to long to bring something like this to market. Since that day I have not forgotten about that company, and when I recently received an opportunity to get a SoapSox for myself, I was excited.

Zakia’s Morocco: Moroccan Hammam Home Spa Kit Review

Zakia’s Morocco: Moroccan Hammam Home Spa Kit and Shea Butter – Review & Giveaway

There is nothing like the spa experience, the feeling of being freshed and ready for what ever comes next. The downside to spa days is the cost, often times they are expensive and once they are over, they are over.

One of the best gift I ever received was a “spa at home kit” which brought the spa experience home. I love trying new spa treatments, and giving myself an excuse to decompress  without feeling guilty.  When I received an email about a traditional Moroccan Home Spa Kit from Zakia’s Morocco, I knew I wanted to give it a try.
