Bath bomb challenge
On August 13, 2019 Lauren uploaded a video called "100 Bath Bombs Challenge Gone Wrong", where she filled her bathtub with 100 bath bombs that she received from Bubbly Belle to use in a video. After putting the 100 bath bombs into her tub, the water overflowed and flooded her bathroom. Due to not being caulked properly, water spilled through a large hole under the bathtub, and down into the second floor ceiling, with water leaking through a light fixture, into the fireplace, and due to the ceiling being slightly sloped, the water ran off and leaked down into the basement, causing thousands of dollars in damage to her then new house that they had moved into 2 months prior after 3 months of renovation. The damage has since been repaired.
