Those who know me best — or those who read The Frisky with any regularity — know that I love bath time. I am always looking to take my bubble-filled soaks up a notch, which is why I gasped with excitement when I came across this Spa Bath Planetarium gizmo. It’s like these geniuses knew that second only to my love of baths is my love of space and they created this with me in mind! But for those of you who are not into stargazing (weirdos), there are two other settings — a pretty rose glow and a “bottom of the sea” effect. Whatever, I’m sure they’re lovely, but I’m only interested in going where no one has gone before — especially in a bathtub. [$123.75, GeekStuff4U]
As you may remember, I bathe like a rockstar. But I must admit that for all my copious reading material, “Downton Abbey” marathons, and large glasses of wine, my bath time buzz was kind of being killed by the shallowness of the tub itself. So I was delighted to discover that I could add a few inches of water to submerge in by covering the overflow drain with Slip-X Solutions Bottomless Bath. (Not safe for people who turn on the faucet, call their best friend, and then forget about it.) Who knew? [$6.99, Bed Bath & Beyond]
After a long day of writing and editing at The Frisky, I like to take a nice long soak in a bathtub. I drink a glass of wine, put on some music or a podcast, and read a book. I party hard. Occasionally I even take pictures of my feet poking out amongst the bubbles and post them on Facebook because I like to live on the edge and play with electronics near water. In short, my nighttime soaks come with a lot of easily damageable accessories — gadgets, books, and precious, precious wine — and I need a safe place to set everything while I stew. Hence, I’m itching to buy this Umbra bamboo and chrome bathtub caddy — there’s even a place to rest my book upright! That’s awesome, as I’m supposed to be relaxing and holding a book requires effort. Sold.
