Why I Miss My Bubble Baths

I admit, I am a shower person normally, but there is something about a having a bath that is so relaxing. You feel as though you can soak away your cares and worries. Having small children means that having the time for a bath can be difficult, but sometimes you need that little break. I loved it when my other half promised to keep the kids occupied while I relaxed in a hot soapy bubble bath.

I love bath products too, they are so much more luxurious than shower gels and lotions. You can have your bath smelling of whatever you wish, even chocolate if that’s your thing of delight. You can add glitter bombs and fizzy bombs and smells that enhance your mood. I loved to fill my bath with tons of bubbles and relaxing scents and just lie back and chill out.

Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bath Bar from Lush…one of my all time favourites!

We stayed in a hotel in Blackpool once and there was a jacuzzi bath tub. I couldn’t wait to try it out and was in it like a flash. It was lovely, after a long journey it was just what I needed. When I finished I emptied the bath and eek! I couldn’t work out how to turn off the jacuzzi, it just kept whirring away with no water. After the Other Half had a go at turning it off we gave in and called reception for help. By the time help arrived it had turned itself off. Ooops! tad embarrassing.

I can remember the last day I had a bath, it was January 1st this year. The day that I woke up with these horrible pins and needles that wouldn’t go away. I tried everything and then my Other Half suggested having a relaxing bath. So I did, and it was lovely. Sadly, although it made me feel more relaxed (I’d been getting pretty stressed) it didn’t take away the pins and needles. This was the day I ended up in hospital with Transverse Myelitis. Now, I can’t even get in our walk-in shower without help, having a bath is out of the question.

Or is it? I was thinking that a wet room was the way to go. A Shower that I didn’t have to get help to step in, with a comfortable chair and a non slip floor. It would work perfectly for me and it’s probably the way I would go. But I would miss my bubble baths, I know I would. It’s not just about getting clean, it’s about relaxing and taking time for yourself. Then I saw these walk in baths at Premier Bathrooms and I thought how lovely it would be. I wouldn’t need help to get in and I’d feel safe and able to relax just like I used to. This is definitely on my want list.

Walk in bath with lift and overhead shower, my dream come true!
What do you think? Are you a strictly shower person or do you love your bubble baths too?

    We haven't had a shower in our house for years. The old shower broke and we put a new one in but found it kept tripping the fusebox and the fuses cost £1 at time! We called an electrician in and he said the only solution would be to rewire the house at the cost of several thousand pounds. Baths it has been since then!

    I couldn't be without my bath! Whilst I shower daily, I love having a bath on the weekends instead. I like the idea of these walk in baths – great for people who struggle to get in and out of them.

    I hear you on the bubble baths! I shower daily for quickness but also love a lie in a bath with a bath bomb!

    I do love a good soak in the bath…I have at least once a week. The rest of the time I have a shower…

    Those walk in baths look like a perfect solution for you. I'm a shower person because it is quick and easy but I do love a bath on a chilly winter's evening.

    I am pretty much a shower person but thats because I have had many years of an awful bathroom and the bath being somewhere I didn't want to stay, however since we moved our bathroom is lovely and warm and we have a lovely new bath so I have found a new love of baths and can be often found having one these days. Certainly does feel nice to be surrounded by lovely warm water.

    OOh I am so a bath person – I do have showers more often in summer, but in winter I love to wallow in hot water!

    I am a bath person. I would be devastated if I had to only have showers. My mum had a hoist for the bath and it was great

    I love a bath but we find it really pushes our water bill up so it is purely a treat every couple of weeks (we do have daily showers though)

    I don't remember the last time I had a proper soak. I love them but Emma goes late to bed and a proper soak it is not when a young child keeps walking in to admire our nether bits, lol. I do hope you get your walk in bath, it does look lovely.xx

    I am having a new bath in June and just cannot wait… I love baths but usually opt for a quick shower! x

    I love a bath especially if it has lots of bubbles in it. Usually only shower either on holiday or if it's exceptionally warm in the UK which doesn't happen all that often!

    Do you know what Anne, I saw the title of the post and thought I'd love a bath! I haven't had one for months, mainly because of time I shower every day instead. I like a really hot bath and a good soak so you wouldn't see me for more than an hour. Those were the days! Here's to you being able to enjoy a bath at some point x

    I have experienced shower many times, but I wish I could experience a bubble bath too…a good soak bath. 🙂

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
