As I suspected, dinner brought on new ideas for what I should do this evening.  The requirements were:  1)  No pressure.  2) Quick and Easy.   3) Able to complete in 3 hours.

So I waved my magic wand and transformed some chemicals and organic ingredients into  a couple of “last thing on vacation” treats.

A Thing a Day on Vacation – Tick Tock…The Final Countdown!

It’s the last full day of vacation for me to have fun.  So I spent today playing.   When the day started, I didn’t have any idea what I was going to make, but I decided to take on a challenge head on… more surfactants!

Surfactants have thus far been a fair-weather friend to me.   I have had some minor success with them, one glorious victory, and many failures.    So clearly, I need more practice!

A Thing a Day on Vacation – Friday Fun

It’s Friday already.  How the week flew by!  Only a couple more days left to get my “to do’s” done.    Luckily, I have already done everything on my original list and now I am down to just a few personal refills and maybe a couple more things just to do for fun!

Today, I spent the day making a refill of my favorite Wheat Germ, Flax & Rosehip Hair Conditioner, a new experimental sugar scrub I am calling “Lemon Butter Scrub”, and a new gel cream I am calling “Cooling, Hydrating Water Gel”.

Day 3 Part 2 – Sunday Evening

Ok, I did say “a” thing a day on vacation right?  I am such a rule breaker!   To be fair though, the things I made this evening were all relatively quick and easy, so they should only count as one thing.

Tonight I finished up my Island Escape Lotion and made an Oil Serum, Goddess Balm, and an experimental surfactant-based Scrub.
