Bath and Body
My shower is seriously lacking. This is what happens when you become unemployed though. I just don’t have the luxury of buying whatever I want. I’m used to having a shower over flowing with soaps, creams, and smelly good stuff. I look forward to that day again!
One of my first bath purchases will most certainly be from Gudonya Too. I go geeky for their Whipped Clean. Forget that ordinary body wash. Try this! Grab your bath pouf and you’ve got enough bubbles and aroma for a car wash!
Why is it called Whipped Clean? That’s easy – it looks like whipped cream but that phrase was already taken. It’s a pretty solid mixture that lathers easily in the hardest of waters and is kind to your skin. I think the Strawberry Fields Whipped Clean looks great so that’s the one I’d snag for myself.
Oh, and don’t let me forget to mention that this is Vegan friendly! Go Vegan!
As you may remember, I’m super into bath and body stuff that’s handmade. I was excited to take a peek at all the new unfamiliar handmade shops that offer these types of goods. I’m a little bit behind on what’s cool right now. I also have some serious stocking up to do when it comes to soaps, scrubs, and perfumes. I need a sugar daddy.
I found Blushie when I was looking at past treasuries. Their soaps really jumped off the page. I wish they’d jump into my shower! Perfect for Halloween, the Witch’s Brew soap, looks very inviting. This is an enchanting blend of harvest-themed spices such as; nutmeg, clove and cinnamon on a sweet base with a hint of oak. This is a warm fragrance reminiscent of a cozy cottage on a cold winter’s night, with cakes fresh-baked and spiced tea brewing nearby. Also of important note, this soap is Vegan!
I love the bright vibrant color and also the special details for all the soaps at Blushie. This shop is definitely on my to do list!
I’m a bad friend! I haven’t been around much because I’ve been so busy with my job search. It’s a shame because I’ve had so much stuff to share with you but so little time to do much. I purposely stopped today to take time to write about something adorable though.
Those that know me and have been following this blog for years know that I have a background in dentistry. I worked for a doctor for 3 years before staying home with the twins. Well, I’m trying to get back into my passion and I’ve been interviewing at many offices. I found one I really like on Wednesday. It’s an orthodontics office. The staff was great and I felt really good there so hopefully I get that job.
I figure this blog entry needs to be dedicated to some teeth so I found some cool denture soaps that smell like peppermint from LoveLeeSoaps. They are made with moisturizing shea butter and can be used for both bath time and washing hands. These soaps have the soft scent of peppermint added that makes them smell fresh and sparkly clean! This set would make a great gift for all ages or even something special for yourself!

I had the best surprise waiting for me in the mail box the other day when I got home. A box from Green Haven Soaps! Here you will find handcrafted soaps that are made using a combination of medieval inspiration and modern methods of production. They are crafted from scratch, in the cold process tradition.
These wonderful soaps are made with such skin-loving ingredients as vegetable and plant oils, herbs, botanicals and essential oils. With Green Haven Soaps, reconnecting with nature is as simple as stepping into your bath. The soap I sampled was called Avalon and smelled like Lavender and Patchouli. It left a long lasting lingering scent on my skin, just the way I like it.
Lucky for you I was sent extra bars and decided to host a giveaway with them. 2 lucky winners will win a bar from Green Haven Soaps. I have a bar of Glastonbury and Titania that is calling someones name.
