I Have concluded that some of my bath bombs are on strike and have decided to not work properly.



 Golden Slumbers Bath Bomb

Golden Slumbers is exactly what its name says that it is. It is a gold coloured bath bomb, full of lavender oil, lavender absolute, chamomile oil and neroli. This concoction will life your mood right before making you want to doze off in your nice, warm bath. The Golden Slumbers bath bomb smells amazingly natural, and the scent persists throughout the dissolving and throughout your bath. It even stays on your skin after you exit your bath.

Goodbye, 2017.

This year was probably one of the best years of my life. I am not joking. I have been through a lot of good things this year. I went out and got what I wanted. I have had a few boy related downs that I do not regret one bit. How can you regret a lesson? As part of my personal growth, I have reached a few minor achievements that sent me over the moon.
I managed to open a bottle of wine.This might be a simple task for many people, but for some reason I was always defeated by a bottle and its cork. But this year, I have successfully opened a bottle of wine. In fact, I did it multiple times. Unfortunately these occasions were for other people, and not opening wine for me. That's the waitress life.

 This girl sat with a plate full of sushi in front of her, and refused to eat it unless she could hold and lift it with chopsticks. My sushi went cold, but I succeeded.
