Christmas Wrap-Up

Yes, I know I said a couple of weeks ago that I was done making my Christmas gifts, but that is almost never the case until the day arrives and I run out of time. 🙂

Analytical Recipe – Walnut Facial Scrub

My niece, Andi, asked me if I could try to make her something like St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I decided to give it a try.

Oh What Fun It Is To…

Formulate!  🙂

I had such a great time today formulating and waving my magic wand to concoct some super-duper magical potions in my kitchen!

First, let me start with last night though… Continue reading “Oh What Fun It Is To…”

Vacation – Let the Fun Begin!

FINALLY it’s vacation time for me!  I have been saving up some fun just for this purpose!

I refilled my stash of bath & body ingredients, and have been patiently waiting for  vacation to arrive so I could play with my new goodies! I have SO much in store for this vacation!  I even have an itinerary all worked up. Continue reading “Vacation – Let the Fun Begin!”
