While bubble bath is relatively inexpensive - I really love luxury soaps.
Those scented, triple-milled, creamy, foamy...expensive soaps, are my weakness. My nirvana. My personal luxury. For me, they are worth making my own laundry soap and household cleaners (inexpensive...and fewer icky, noxious chemicals); re-purposing, re-cycling, re-using - almost everything; re-covering my own furniture; buying many things gently used; growing my own food (cheaper, healthier, organic, etc.); shopping for bargains, and more!
To me, a well-appointed bath - fluffy, white Egyptian cotton towels, luxury soaps, are a personal ambience that is important, essential, needful to my well-being.
I love a glass or two of good champagne, once in awhile. While I don't spend money on really expensive champagne (there was once a time when I did!) I buy and enjoy moderately good champagne. Never, the cheap stuff. I've had good, really good champagne! So, I know that price is not the only indicator of a great champagne. There are excellent moderately-priced champagnes out there that rival the expensive stuff. I won't name names...as preferences are a matter of personal taste!
I like it - Brut. Lots of tiny bubbles. Ice cold in a hot bath or sitting in the garden. Or, sitting in front of the fireplace. Or...just sitting!
