New Smell-Goods

Hi, hi, hi. What a *gorgeous* day in Portland. Wow - no rain or anything!!! I'm going to go play, but I wanted to blog about a couple of new soaps I just added to the shop.

LYLA - a mild, sweet citrus (and slightly herbaceous) blend. Not overly powerful smelling. Really fresh and clean. I added green tea extract and green tea leaves to this one.

BARTOLA - Sweet almond cake with a ribbon of cocoa, dusted with powdered sugar, grounded by incense and wood. This one has almond milk, cocoa AND shea butter, and hibiscus extract, which has anti-aging properties (uhhhh - yes, please). I was only able to list 4 of these. The others are gone already.

I also got the Harlot Caramel Apple lip balm in the shop, which for some reason I thought had always been in there. I was wondering why it wasn't selling. Ha ha.

On the racks right now I have a wasabi soap that's PHENOMENAL, and a pumpkin caramel goat's milk soap -- these are both part of the Halloween line that's coming out next month. I made soap today, and I will list the scents as soon as I see that the batches came out okay.  

My baby leaves for California on Wednesday. I'm freaking out BAD, you guys. I only have a few more days with her and then she's gone for far too long. :-(

That's all.

Oh your soaps are so pretty! Bartola sound wonderful! I hope there is some left when I order perfume for my mom!

It's starting to get warmer here too, but then it's Seattle so it may be a flood tomorrow!

Why is your daughter going to Cali? :(

Why, thank you. Bartola is very, very good, if I do say so myself. I wanted to keep one, but with so few, I thought I should go ahead and list them all.

My daughter goes to Cali every year to hang with the grandparents. Only problem is, she stays the ENTIRE summer and it kills me every single year. The first week is absolute hell, then I get a bit used to it, and then the last 2-3 weeks again are just hell. You'd think I'd be used to it by now, but I'm not sure that's something a person ever gets used to.

I can relate - my daughter goes away for the entire Summer holidays to her father's interstate. In Australia I think it's a shorter time (usually 5-6 weeks), but it's awful having her gone for all that time. I get super tense and just kind of drift through the days waiting for her to come home.
