I Heart Soap

I'm not a girly girl. I don't wear makeup, I like clothes but don't like to dress up. I like anything camouflage. My hair is usually a mess. I do love good smelling soap however. No matter how unkempt I usually look I do like to bathe!

Here are some of my favorite places to shop for soap.

Anderson Soap Company

Mini soaps! They are the perfect size for gifts and little guest soaps. I had a lot of them, but Adam got a hold of them and somehow he can use a whole bar in one shower. I'm starting to think he eats it.

I also love their Anise soap, smells like licorice. While I hate licorice I love the smell and you smell like licorice after you use it. I bought Adam some PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon Soap), which may have not been a good idea. Now his breath and skin smells like cheap beer, bleh!

Adoration Soap

You need to try the Moroccan Fig Soap. Smelled so good I almost ate it!

Ok, this is shampoo not soap, but it's the best shampoo ever! I don't have anymore which is why my hair looks worse than usual.
Gudonya Salty DAWG Creme Shampoo from Gudonya Soap and Spa, LLC

Trillium Soaps

Trillium is a local soap company. They sell their soaps in a lot of local stores and have a store in Rockland.

68 Crescent Street
Rockland, Maine

At their store you can get bags of soap ends. Last time I knew it was $5 a bag and you get quite a bit of soap. If you don't care how pretty your soap is that is.

Made some sweet new earrings :)

I got some one part resin or craft lacquer. Anyway last night I made a bunch of earrings with it. They came out so great. I've been scared of using real resin and I really just wanted it to do some little things. This stuff works great. I dreamt all night of things I could do with it. Is that sad?

A few pairs are up in the shop now, the rest will be up later today. :)

New Year's Resolutions

Well, it's more of a to-do list. I need to truly get my act together this year. All of my resolutions kind of hinge upon each other.

Blog more- Or blog period. I will try at least a few times a week. It's not hard in the winter, but in the summer when I work outside all day and am exhausted by the time I get any internet time it's not easy.

Loose weight- Isn't that every one's resolution? I need to get in shape, eat better and feel better. Then I'll have more energy to do more. A few years ago I lost about 30lbs so I know I can do it. I need to loose that extra 15lbs. When I got out of high school I worked on a veggie farm and I was rugged. I had a 6-pack and I want it back!

Get organized and de-junk. I am a pack rat and I've had enough. I'm weighed down by all my stuff. I don't need it, I'll never use it and it. Being disorganized and messy is a time waster.

Being a more conscious shopper. Also fits in with the de-junk resolution. I like sales and I buy stuff that's really cheap whether I need it or not. While I was hoeing out my bedroom I found shopping bags with brand new things in them, tags still attached.
I am going to try to buy more eco-friendly items, shop at more eco-friendly, consciousnesses stores, buy locally, buy handmade and buy only what I really need. Oh and buy things that are recyclable or re-usable.

I'll think of more later, but those are the main things I'd like to do this year. Oh and finish my house, finally!
