My body is a little out of whack at the moment. I stayed up all night, with billions of people around the world, to watch the live coverage of the Royal Wedding, which started super early Friday morning (it really sucked to be on the Pacific Time Zone).
When the sun came up, I decided to push through and start working. It seemed like a good idea at the time. At around 4:00 p.m. this afternoon (I had been up for 30 hours straight at this point), my body finally gave up and I completely fell asleep on the couch, only to be awakened by my fiancé’s phone call at 9:00 p.m. Now, at 2:00 in the morning, I can’t go back to sleep. I really need to go to sleep pretty soon, or else I’ll be messed up for the next few days! Yikes.
Well, speaking of the Royal Wedding, I am obsessed with Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, the future Queen of England, and the most beautiful woman in the world. I have a major girl crush on her. I thought she was absolutely breathtaking in the lacy, sophisticated yet modern wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. She was the perfect example that you can be super sex without showing too much skin. What a classy princess!
I wish the lovely couple the lifetime of happiness and a fairy tale life of happily ever after.
Well, now that I’m wide awake, I’ve decided to share pictures of my latest soap creations! This was my first time making soaps in a very long time (first time this year, actually) but like riding a bike, I picked up where I left off.
I am madly in love with soaps with little bits of earthly goodness in them, like oatmeal bits, lavender buds, chamomile flowers, and peppermint leaves. I love the way the soaps look and they add a wonderful grainy texture perfect for light scrubbing. The two new batches I made have loads of these wonderful dried leaves in them.
The lighter-color soaps are all-natural Lavender soaps, using my ultimate favorite recipes with olive oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and other wonderfully moisturizing oils. This recipe is my original and it is my absolute favorite.
The darker ones are all-natural Peppermint soaps and I love the rich dark hue! I’ve had requests from guy friends that they’d like to see a darker, more “manly” looking soaps (instead of the cutesy pink ones) so these are perfect for the dudes. They’ll both be ready in my Etsy shop, Lavender and Olive, in the summer.
Anyway, I guess I better wrap up soon and go to bed. I am having breakfast with my fiancé and I want to make sure that I am up on time so it will not turn into a dinner date!
