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.

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!

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!

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.
