New Sweet Peach & Berries

I really enjoy making detailed soaps. I enjoy planning color schemes and matching fragrances. Thinking it might be nice to make a more "simple" soap, I made a delicious bar in one of my best selling scents, Peach and Sweet Berries. Previously this scent was only offered in my Hello Kitty Soap and my new Pony Soap. Turns out some people liked just keeping their soaps around to sniff them and not use them because "They just look so cuuute!" *wink* So, I wanted to make a pretty bar that was simple, to encourage guilt free use.

Let me officially introduce you to my newest Peach & Sweet Berries Soap!

This is a beautiful peach and shimmery pink soap and it smells AMAZING! Super creamy and bubbly, this soap was blended to have extra lather.

Naturally crushed Shea Butter has been added to produce this creamy soap. Shea butter produces a luxurious lather, which provides moisture as it softens. Approximately 3.5 ounces each

I just might have to do a few more sets of soaps like this...maybe in my yummy Cupcake scent....or seductive Satin Sheets scents... *Eep* I love getting excited about my work. ♥♥♥

Any scents you'd love to see? Let me know and you will be sure to see them soon!

Monday Mini-Feature: Pretty Hair Clippies

I love hair accessories! About two years ago I got completely obsessed with hair bows and clippies. My daughter then, just beginning kindergarten, began her collection of bows and clips that, to this day, has become insanely large and still increasing in size! There is just something undoubtedly adorable about little girls with cute accessories.

I found Pretty Hair Clippies through Twitter and entered a giveaway Pretty Hair Clippies was sponsoring. I won! Yay! I received a beautiful set of hair clips for my daughter and I to wear together.

While visiting this vibrant shop on Etsy, you will find unique product descriptions, stories and ideas. Party Favors and Mom/Daughter sets (which I completely LOVE!) to name a few.

Save some extra cash skipping your daughter's next hair cut and why not pull back her bangs with some cute clips? I am trying to grow out Starla's bangs (and my own!) and we'd probably go crazy if not for these hair clips!

You can also find Pretty Hair Clippies on Twitter! FigMom is wonderful to chat with ♥♥♥

Summer ♥

WHEW! What a crazy last two weeks! I just, finally, was able to read every one's blogs and catch up and it seems we are all super busy these days!

My summer wedding and wholesale orders are all caught up and out the door! YAY! *Happy Dance* And a HUGE "Thank You!" to everyone who purchased during my "Spring Cleaning Sale". I was able to clear a good chunk of space and I can't wait to get started on some new creations to fill said space! The wheels in my head are turning...

As I am catching up in the Blog World, you can look forward to a few Monday Mini-Features, including Pretty Hair Clippies, Lily Haven and Paper Cakes! YAY!

Also be sure to check out my giveaway via the Mammalicious Finds Blog. A huge shout out and thank you to SoBella Creations for the wonderful review!

*Mommy Moment* Today is the last day of first grade for my daughter and I wanted to share this picture of her quick. I can not believe how grown up looks. (I have a family blog posted HERE, however, I am behind on updating that one too...)

Time to get back to work. ♥ No worries, my long winded, picture heavy posts will be back on track this week! ♥♥♥
