Match made in heaven or maid of dishonor?

Tight-laced Rose Hensel arrives in Scotland for her best friend’s wedding with a plan—to be the greatest maid of honor ever, let loose for the first time in years, and find out what Scottish guys really wear under their kilts. After meeting the best man, she thinks she found the man who checks all the boxes for a no-strings-attached romp among the heather.

Lachlan Calder-Mackinnon knows how to show a girl a good time. Gourmet dinners in castle ruins, picnics among rolling hills, and a seaside escape create some unforgettable dates. But as the fling begins to morph into something more, an unexpected wedding guest threatens to ruin Rose and Lachlan’s new romance.

With a plane ticket in one hand and her broken heart in the other, Rose prepares to head home to reality. However, she’s about to learn that what happens in the Highlands don’t always stay there.

It’s just for the summer…

Single mom Anne Fraser is this close to breaking through the glass ceiling of corporate hotel management. She can’t afford to take off a whole summer to fill her late mother’s shoes at the Silver Rose Guest Ranch even if a few months out of the city might be just what the doctor ordered for eight-year-old Zoey. Anne can’t say no to her beloved stepfather’s request–even if the job means sharing the reins with the man whose kiss she’s never forgotten.

A little R&R at a B&B…

Professional bull rider Will Cavanaugh was this close to his goal of becoming World Champion when an injury sidelined him. Spending the summer managing his grandfather’s guest ranch might please the team doctor, but working with Anne brings challenges Will never saw coming—like falling in love. But that doesn’t mean he’s giving up on his dream

Battered and a bit disillusioned by life, Will and Anne return to the Silver Rose to repay old debts. To fall in love again. But only for the summer.

Or, maybe…for a lifetime.

Bellissima Bain

Morning, lovelies! We had a delightful treat for you guys from a little company called

Bellissima Bain. It’s run by a wonderful French-Italian woman named Arlene, who is currently battling breast cancer. Yes, she’s fighting off an illness that would leave some bed bound, but she’s still lovingly honing her craft to create luxurious products that left us feeling pampered. So let’s dive right into Bellissima Bain

‎♥Kelsey’s Thoughts♥

IMG_9277.JPG

First, let’s start with the packaging. I thought it was quite nice, clean, and professional. I mean, look at that business card! It’s something worthy of the spa experience I felt I received in my own home. In my package, I received Candy Heart Lip Scrub, Sugar Cookie Body Scrub, and Cocoa Body Butter.

My favorite product I received was the Candy Heart Lip Scrub. While that was a Valentine’s Day special, the rest of the lip scrubs are available here.

IMG_9361.JPG

Winter had be really harsh on my lips. I’m constantly putting on chapstick, which can make things worse. I hadn’t actually ever tried a lip scrub before, although I had heard about them. Let me tell you, this Bellissima Bain scrub converted me into a regular user. A simple swipe and a little massage is all you need for perfectly kissable lips. And it was so sweet! The added ingredients made it much tastier than the original candy heart, so putting it on was a treat by itself! If I can suggest some flavors for those who looking to try a jar, I would say the Honey Lemon Drop, the Peach Bellini, and the Rose Milk all sound amazing! You can check out the whole lip scrub line here! And at $4.50 a jar, it’s really quite the steal.

Next was the Sugar Cookie Body Scrub.

I love me a good body scrub, and this one smelled delicious! It was like I was being exfoliated by the Pillsbury Doughboy. My skin came out smooth and lightly scented. I was worried I would smell like a Bath and Body Works cashier, but it was really lovely. Not overpowering and just added the lightest hint of sugar to my skin. You can get the Sugar Cookie Body Scrub here, and it’s only $13.50, which I think is a pretty nice deal for something in such a sizable tub. I did my whole body and probably have enough for 5 more uses. There are also so many scents to choose from; Cocktails/Drinks, Desserts, and Herby/Fruity/Floral scents. I recommend the Chai Latte, the Crem Brulee, or the Lemon Sea Salt.

Finally, I also received a Cocoa Body Butter, which smelled delightfully like hot cocoa.

It was smooth and I only needed a light covering to coat my arms. Again, the smell was there, but not overpowering or with those fake undertones that ruin a lot of otherwise great products. Also, I have sensitive skin, so I was worried about reactions, but I’ve worn this body butter several times now without issue and my skin stays perfectly soft all day! You can get this tasty Cocoa Body Butter here, or maybe you’d like to try the Rose Milk, which I’m adding to my shopping list!

I give Bellissima Bain 6/6 Glass slippers!

‎♥Sarah’s Thoughts♥

I was sent the Blueberry Margarita Body Scrub and I actually used it on Margarita Day! So, it doesn’t smell like tequila and bad decisions. The blueberry smell is pretty overpowering but I actually really liked how sweet it was. I used the scrub before shaving my legs and…geez it made a difference. My legs were silky smooth for longer than normal. It did make me look like the purple people eater, but it came off with the water. Just be careful with this, it left a blue ring on the side of my tub. It came off easily, but you want to remember to make sure to wipe the container, so it doesn’t spread the colors.


I also got the key lime pie lip scrub. Like Kelsey, winter (well, the like two weeks of cold weather we’ve had) was hard on my lips and I have a sexy husband that I like to kiss. At night, I started using the scrub and then the lip balm before going to bed. I wake up with smooth lips no matter how badly chapped they were the night before. I definitely am adding this to my nightly routine and I’d suggest you do too. It makes it so much easier to put lip stick on.

Now, the Key Lime Pie…it actually smells amazing.

Finally, I got the Strawberry mimosa petite body butter. This was a lot smaller than my blueberry one and I felt I was going to use it all pretty quickly. Overall, it didn’t really smell like a mimosa but the strawberry flavor was on point. Between the two, I liked the blueberry more but that could be because I know it will last. But the petite body butter, would be great for traveling. However, it is pink and that’s all I need in life. Well, that and tacos.


All three of these products were light and not the slightest bit greasy. I saw on their page that they are now making face scrubs, and I am very interested in trying that.

I give them 5.5/6 glass slippers.
