As inspired by my spa visit, here are a few ways to recreate a spa atmosphere in your bathroom at home... on a budget of course!
Relaxing music or the sound of the ocean is the quickest and cheapest way to transform your space into your own personal spa.
On the cheap: Search for some spa sounds on YouTube and put it on repeat. (How to put a YouTube video on repeat: Type "repeat" into a YouTube URL before the ".com" so http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aW0a0qpDHY becomes http://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch?v=http://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch?v= 2aW0a0qpDHY)
Dim the florescents, light some candles and close your eyes.
On the cheap: Buy a pack of tea lights for a few bucks and toss them into mason jars for an easy shabby chic look. If you're feeling really crafty, wrap the jar in lace or spray paint it before you drop the candle in.
Scents and Smells
Bring that comforting spa smell into your home.
On the cheap: Burn some scented candles in the bathroom, my favorites are lavender and vanilla, or make your own scent diffuser.
Extra Goodies: Sea salts, a neck pillow, tub bubbles, body lotion and fluffy towels to dry you off after your soothing soak!
Have a Happy Thursday!
