Bubble Bath Day

Today is International Bubble Bath Day, and seeing that it fell on a Sunday I decided to start my day with.. drumroll… A bubble bath! Not that I need an excuse – I could practically be a mermaid if you knew how much time I spend getting my fingertips all wrinkly. 🙂

You have no idea how much I appreciate you in my life! I happened to live with one of your relatives for a couple of months, but apart from that time, for the last couple of years I’ve been good friends with the sink,  sponge and Fairy liquid.

Have a bath tonight

You have to – it’s international Bathtub day – what a great excuse to shut everything (and everyone!) off and spend a couple of hours relaxing in a hot, bubbly bath.Bathtub Day Polina Skrebneva blog

Enjoy your bubbles!
