Huh.. can I use that as a title? =)

So I've been working fairly hard & I might add A LOT lately with my 9-5 job which is actually 12-9 while doing some product developing for my bath & body line-up on, I am very happy with my final outcomes.

My Shea Body Butter is just awesome. I use it everyday and can't image being without it. I went thru a week of trial and error reading message boards and blogs to final my exact recipe. Now after about 2-3 weeks of trial and error I am finally happy with my body mist / linen spray's. They are super light weight, non-oily and the scents last an amazingly long time! It seems while I've been so hard at work developing my product line I haven't been paying attention to much else. Well aside from work, work, baby & boyfriend not in that exact order.

With this sad note I have to announce that my "dad-away-from-dad's" great grandmother had passed away. I call him that cause he is not my dad nor of any relation to me however it acts in every way as my father & probably should have been my dad =). I am so saddened for his loss. She was amazingly 95 years old. Here's the link about her and her life
Anthony I love you and sorry to hear about your loss.

Yeah =o) A compliment

So I was out walking with my daughter and one of my neighbors stopped me and asked me where I work. She said my skin is always very nice and she complimented me on my make-up. We started talking and then next thing I know I got an order =o)

Definitely makes me feel good. Like I've choosen the right path with my business. After years of working a make-up counter for Lancome, being an make-up artist, avon lady and independent consultant/freelance maybe working through all that finally landed me where I need to be.

Mistakes, a bad morning & awesome movie

I got home late from my 12-9 job & saw my container order in the kitchen staring at me. I was so beat I decided to deal with it this morning. I must have been sleep walking or in a haze when I placed my order. Every single container I order is the wrong wrong kind = The only thing I can think of to cheer me up is that the new containers I'd be switching to I can do a lot sooner now once I return this order and use up what I got on hand.. What a big dummy move I did. I feel likea zombie the past month and this only proves it!

In a good note I watched Repo, The Genetic Opera.... LOVED IT! What can I say I am a sucker for operas / musicials / Sara Brightman ha ha. Plus all the gore was just up my alley. =o]

Ok I'm smiling now ....

In the mix

Lately, I've been making a few orders thanks to my gals in UWIB. Etsy has been difficult for me to branch out, however, if this current trend keeps up I'll be recieving orders weekly instead of ever other month. My main sales have been from local shops, which is great but running to Monroe, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, West Virginia & etc is a bit much at times. I've thought about just shipping my products to the vendors but I prefer the face-to-face interaction with my partners. Plus I always love the chance for me and Madeleine to hit the road. She always steals the show.

Packaging is ever evolving it seems. I finally settled on a label design, thanks to an etsy artist. I used her banner she made for my shop as my company logo. Containers on the other hand I am still messing with. I've settled on a 2oz sample size, 4 oz standard size & an 8 oz large size. Although I may change my 8oz to maybe an 10/11 oz later on down the road. Clear containers so products can be seen...lids on the other hand a completely different story. I had orginally settled against white (even though I love the clear appearance it gives) and had choosen black. It just seems to made the packaging dark and uninviting. Once these containers are used up I am changing vendors and found a great vendor where I am offer silver aluminum lids. In my option it gives a nice clean, bright appearance.

Product line?

Bar soaps are still available but in limited quanities & scents. I am offering a 3 bar bundle currently with a soap holder to liquidate my current inventory. I think in the past I've been offering random scents but Såpeterapi will start offering making scents in bars, whipped soaps, lotions, bath bombs, perfumes & scrubs. That way someone can order their favorite scent in any product or even make a bundle with that scent. I will still offer my seasonal line-up but things will start to have a streamline look to make it easier for customers.

In other news... I just bought my second print from If you haven't yet had the chance to see her wonder works your truely missing out. I find her artwork affordable and one-of a kind. Truely a talented artist with a great vision.

If I had the money... I would own this at this very moment!! Available at A very talented artist with a surreal vision and a palettable array of art that will leave you wanting to buy every single one of the pieces. I found myself laying in bed last night thinking where I would hang this...

And lastly but certainly not least. The best one-of-a-kind / orginal idea on etsy I've found. Also the most usefull item

It's a nice feeling

One of my lovely and talented UWIB mates made an order with me. While I am a newer soap gal starting up it's always a nice feeling to get when you get some wonderful feedback about a product. It truely has made my day.

In other news I recieved an order from a local shop here carrying my line for 50 more units. It's nice that spring time brings in some business. Now if I could get my etsy shop moving along ...

I wanted to share a personal something cause she truely is the reason I do everything I do. Madeleine mommy love you.

Make-up Line

Thanks to a lot of encouraging from friends & family I've decided to make my make-up line public and not longer exclusive. I've been making my own makeup now for many years and have made it for close friends and family. I've suffered from severe acne for many years and I'm proud to say no one would know it. That is evidence of a clean make-up line with no fillers but good quality ingredients and a healthy diet and skin care routine. Up until now I've turned away offers to sell it. So I'm no longer being stingy and will be selling it at in the upcoming weeks. My soap & bath line has now moved to Såpeterapi a line I created just that. It is available at Såpeterapi means simply "soap therapy". Nothing is therapeutic then a nice soak in the tub with a spa quality bath scrub or a nice long shower with a good smelling bar of soap. That the whole belief behind Såpeterapi, Indulge & Escape One Bar At A Time. Not to mention it's green.

I look forward to posting very soon with the new line called R&B Inner Beauty
