If you need to unwind, relax, destress or just unplug for a couple hours, there’s no better way to do it than with a warm, bubbly bath. Lifestyle blogger, Kate LaVie, lives in Scotland, where it gets pretty dark and chilly during the winter. So, she knows a thing or two about the best bath time tricks. Here are just a few for you to try, including one for a luxurious spas session at home.

Bubbles might seem a bit childish, but they’re not just for fun and games. For LaVie, foamy bubbles add a touch of luxury, and they leave the water feeling soft and cozy. Use your favorite bubble bath formula or try Deep Steep Bubble Bath Vanilla Coconut.

While you’re lapping up in your bubble bath, LaVie recommends either a face or hair mask ( or both!). A skin mask can hydrate and nourish your skin, and the warmth of the bath water can add boost of hydration, too. The Rose Face Mask icy Fresh s delicate and perfect for all skin types.

And whether you want to do a hair or face mask, or not, LaVie lists an absolutely absolute must during bath time: a candle. When you dim the lights and burn an aromatic candle, you can really sit back and soak up some restorative time. Try this Nudesse candle from Overose for a fragrant, gentle option.

Top your bath off with a cup of tea, a cocktail, or even your favorite book, podcast or playlist, and you’re in for a bath that will leave you feeling revived, relaxed and ready for bedtime.

Depending on where you live, January and February can be very snowy months. And while the first snowfall is exciting and romantic, the charm quickly wears off. We start to hate all that snow because with it comes plowing, shoveling, longer commutes and ugly footwear. But since we have to live with it, we may as well love it. And these amazing snow photographs will make you fall in love with winter all over again.
