Bubble Bath

My favorite way to unwind from a day, is slipping into a nice bubble bath. Granted, I usually bring a glass of wine in, which helps too.

In all seriousness though, stress melts away.. Especially if you try this recipe for an all natural DIY bubble bath.


  • 1 C. Castille Soap  ( I used Bronner’s )
  • 1 C. Water
  • 4 T. Coconut Oil
  • 3 T. Honey  ( I love Phoenicia Honey Co. made locally in the Catskills )
  • 10 Drops Essential Oil ( I used 5 drops of Lavender + 5 drops of Lemongrass oil )

Mix ingredients together and pour into a jar. Take a deep breath and relax in your bath.

Deer Mountain Inn 

This year for my husband’s birthday, we decided to head upstate to the Catskills for a weekend away. It was exactly what we were looking for… A short drive, amazing weather (we were lucky!) and lots to do.. Or not do. We stayed at two different places, and it was perfect. The first place we stayed at was Deer Mountain Inn, in Tannersville, New York. An absolute gem of a spot. If I could, I’d live there, it was seriously that amazing. From the initial booking of our room until the moment we left, everyone there was super helpful.

We arrived on a Friday night and had made reservations for dinner at the hotel restaurant. We got in a little later than expected, due to crazy traffic we hit going out of Brooklyn. A bit tired from the traveling, we threw our bags down when we arrived and headed downstairs to dinner. Drinks were quickly ordered, I went with an extra dirty martini and Kyle had a delicious concoction, off of the extensive drink menu.

You instantly feel right at home, from the moment you pull into the long driveway and spot the smoking chimney to the warm greeting when checking in. The ambience is romantic and cozy with fireplace’s looming in the corner’s surrounded by perfectly worn leather couches waiting for you to sit and relax.

Welcome! I am starting this lifestyle blog to share with you some things that I love. As well as beauty tips, recipes and really anything in between. Speaking of love… my husband and I got married this past summer in the Catskills in Upstate New York. It was hands down one of the best days ever, surrounded by so much love and support from all of our family and friends, I could not have dreamed of anything more. Here are some photos that I just adore.
