Today didn't go as planned at all! John had to go into work, after we'd just rented movies for us to watch tonight when our friend came over to visit. Dang!!
So our friend came over and spent some time with me here, while i made a batch of soap.
I used cleminite and cream scent, as well as an herbal blend made by Crossroadsconjure infused in olive oil.
Somehow, this batch turned out perfectly. Everything went smooth, the colors blended amazingly, and it smells just FANTASTIC! I think this soap just may have a bit of luck! It looks like tie dyed soap, really.
The other batch I made after my guest went home, was scented with Guava, Green Apple, Acai, and mangosteen. It's juicy! Plain color with rich red purple swirls, seeds in the red soap for exfoliation.
I can't wait to unmold! They're both gel right now, so tomorrow will be the most exciting part! Haha, I love making sooap.

My boyfriend and I visited Disneyland, as well as california adventure.
We stayed in a really nice best western that had a 24 hour pool and hot tub, though the pool was probably around 35 degrees the whole time. WAY TOO COLD!!

Tomorrow evening, my boyfriend and I are leaving for CALI!!
We're going to be camping in the redwood forest, visit disneyland or hollywood adventures, hang out with some friends in LA and possibly Sanfran, and visit as many beaches as we can.
I'm soo excited, and I'm bringing my camera! There will be pictures, for sure.
I also hope to buy some gifts for friends as well as any amazing fabrics or soap supplies i happen to find. Herbs or botanicals, maybe tea blends or spiritual herb and root blends.
I'm actually in the planning stages of soaps that have herbs with a "purpose"! I found some "cast out evil" "lucky" "fortune" kind of herbal blends that are straight plant matter, nothing added. I'd love to use essencial oils and throw some extra fine ground herbs in my soaps, to create soaps that will help to not only improve your SKIN, but the spirital aspects of your life as well.. Soaps that can help improve your life in ALL areas.
Do you think you'd buy a spiritual herbal blend soap? Or think it's interesting, at least.
Anyway, boyfriend is home with dinner! Happy easter to all!

I caught my first treasury on esty today! It was pure luck, i had just gotten off work and checked to see when it was opening.. 10 minutes! So i just waited because i've wanted to make one for a bit. :)
you can find it here!
2 items that belong to me, an amazing dyed slip, some sandles that rock, and a few other summer themed items. Check it out! Definitely colorful.
Work was verrry short today! I think i'm going to give a coworker a mini relaxation set.. she is pregnant and always stressin! NO good for a baby.

The necklace even has a reversable side, so if you're not going for a green look, there is always blue to wear with that other outfit.
I'm in awe, there are so many beautiful pieces in the shop.. I highly suggest checking them out and giving them your heart!
In other news, Australia is A VERY LONG MOVIE!!

Last night John and I went to his parents house in preperation for this year's MS walk.
Basically, that means he and his friends as well as family all get REALLY hammered, puke, pass out, and get about 3 and a half hours worth of sleep before we have to leave for the actual walk!!
It was fun to watch all the guys make fools of themselves.. I can't actually drink, I have an allergy to alcohol!
It's not very fun, gotta say.
But I get the pleasure of remaining sober, and getting to laugh at everyone puking up half a bottle of Jack Danials.
Have I ever mentioned that my boyfriend's dad is the vice president of a motercycle club?! Maybe that explains a few things, hehe.
It's their tradition to celebrate and get drunk before the walk, then everyone walks for John's mother's team. She won the award for Largest Team this year!
Anyway, it was much shorter than I'd expected, but I was still soo tired afterward that I slept for about 4 hours afterward!
John and I just made burgers and chicken fingers, and we rented Australia from the redbox. Off to eat!!

I DID however, just list an ALL NATURAL soap! Using hemp oil, extra virgin olive oil, castor, mango butter, and coconut oil. It's pretty amazing, if i do say so myself!
The picture to the right is the hemp soap, all natural with a minty fresh invigorating scent. Check it out!
I just wanted to point everyone in the direction of a good friend of mine named Whitney. She's a wonderful girl, and she started her etsy career about the same time as i did. If you love anything cute, you should check out her earrings! She puts a lot of time and thought into these, and they're really just lovely. :)
Her items are just VERY bright and lovely. These magnets are my favorite, just putting it out there ;)
