I has a laundry happy!

Thanks to @BeccasOnTweeter and @karmicdreaming I learned how to make my own laundry soap and it’s freaking awesome! My clothes have never been so soft. They’re completely unscented, which Kai loves, I however will be ordering some fragrance oils that I can use for my laundry. I’m also going to be picking up about 6-12[1. a set for me and a set for everyone else. Kai doesn’t like smellies.] wool dryer balls to replace dryer sheets. They cut down on drying time and get rid of static AND you can add a drop or two of fragrance oil or essential oil to them to scent your laundry. You have no idea how happy I am! If my foot weren’t broken I would be jumping up and down giggling like a nut!

Which reminds me. I did indeed break my foot. One of the bones, I can’t remember if she said 2nd or 3rd from the left has a hairline fracture. She did say the x-ray dude said it looked like it was starting to knit/heal up. So yay. It still hurts like a mofo though. I also made a roast and veggies in the crockpot tonight. This week is crockpot meal week! In fact I feel like doing nothing but crockpot meals for all of autumn. Anyone have any yummy recipes? This week I’m doing the roast and veggies, meatloaf and pork chops in the crockpot. I shall also make garlic mashed potatoes to go with the pork chops.

I received my @OHWTO order today and omg the smellies! They are AMAZING. I loves them all. I also got my beautiful amazing magical black magic soap that is glycerin free. I cut that sucker up into 8 small pieces so it would last longer in the shower. I also got the 2oz. liquid version for Kai since he is acne prone, and the Rose Flower Balm that will hopefully help with hive breakouts and my awful rough feets. :( I also got smellies in Passiflora and Raspberry Ginger Ale, and samples in Fresh Snow[2. OMG!], Rose Lemonade[3. Also OMG!], Honey Blossom, and 3 sooooper seeeekrit smellies that smell divineeeeee. Now I shall leave you to drool over the yummyness above.

About me

I run this blog! This blog is a personal blog for all things beauty related. I love swatching, reviewing and hosting giveaways. I've been blogging since I was 16 years old... That's uh a long time.

  • Recipe, please? :)

    I’m waiting on my order from OHWTO and I’m so excited! I can’t wait to try Black Magic.

    I hope your foot heals soon!

  • Oh no! I’m sorry about your foot. Hopefully it heals soon.

    I’ve made my own laundry detergent before and even tried several different combinations of the ingredients and it never worked out that great. Well, it was fine for me clothes, but my boyfriend is a firefighter and he works outside a lot and gets REALLY stinky. The homemade laundry detergent didn’t do much for his clothes. Plus I just got tired of grating the bars of soap, haha. Do you wash your clothes with warm or cold water?

    Your dinner looks sooo yummy! One of my favorite things to make in the crockpot is chili.

  • OUCH hope your food feels better!! *HUGS* BTDT (fell off a curb).

    We are such a crockpot family, we own 2. Used to have 3. Wait, I think my son broke our small one. Sigh.

    Still. we cook so much in there I should write our own cookbook. Chili, corned beef for Reubens, chicken marsala…sky’s the limit at our house!

    Definitely marked OHWTO on my favorites! Thanks for the great review–always looking for new yummies!

  • Okay, so how DO you make your own laundry soap? Recipe PLEEEEASE!!! :)

  • Oh I’m totally down with making my own laundry soap… But I love Tide! Is it really better? :d

    And I’m going to have to get more of the magical soap soon- I love having my face blemish free for once in my freaking life! Less blemish-control! YAY! And that roast with veggies has me droooooling… I made a veggie pot pie for dinner tonight in my new dragonfly stoneware bowl I got for Christmas. First time I cooked anything in it- since it’s been used as a fruit bowl for ages!

    • AND DERP!

      What the heck happened to your foot!?!?

      • Dude it’s SO much better. I’ve seriously used every brand of commercial laundry soap before settling on Arm & Hammer + Oxy Clean and this beats the snot out of it. Plus you can get your own fragrance oil and put a few drops into what you put in the washer, or scent the entire thing. Also it only takes 1-2 tablespoons for each wash. It’s SO much cheaper and works so much better. I’m gonna make some wool dryer balls too so that’ll be awesome!
