My latest purchase


Whilst not the most exciting purchase in the world, they mean a whole lot to me.

Yesterday I went out and bought myself a new pair of sneakers FOR RUNNING! Yes, that's right, I've taken up the sport of running. Although at the moment I haven't graduated to the outdoors yet, I'm still glued to treadmill exercise thing, but it's running none the less.

I've been following the Couch to 5K program which is the most painless way to graduate from being a couch potato to running a 5K race in only 9 weeks.

The application is available for iphones. Read all about it right here: http://c25kapp.com/

It really is a great program and it's at least gotten me up off my arse and doing something good for my body.

So, I'll raise a shoe to health & fitness!

I love you, I love you not.......


OK, what is it with fizzy bath bombs?

There are times when I make them and they just won't cooperate. They fall apart, they grow warts after drying, they heave wide open, and the list of naughtiness goes on.

Then there are times like this morning when they're the most perfectly well behaved things in the world and are (gasp.... dare I say it?) a pleasure to make.

What gives, pray tell?

Next Saturday I have a last minute vending event here in CT. I have a ton of soap but not much else ready so decided to take my chances with some fizzy bombs. I pulled out all my equipment & ingredients and got to balling. To my pleasure, every single one turned out just lovely and at this time they're sitting happily side by side drying themselves ready to be packaged.

I made
  • Lemon Ginger
  • Raspberry
  • Key Lime
  • Gardenia
  • Pumpkin Chiffon
  • Oatmeal Milk & Honey
I plan to sell them in pairs. I have some clear boxes that I'll package them in. Hopefully they'll look so cute they'll be irresistible!!
