Upon opening this soap I was greeted with a kind of woodsy floral scent. It wasn’t overpowering at all. When using this soap you don’t have to worry about the scent lingering after. I’ve used this soap both foaming it up with my hands and with one of those scratchy long bath towels. It doesn’t lather up much using it with your hands, but with the bath towel and I imagine poofs, gloves, etc. it foams up a lot. Either way it works well for shaving. If you leave in the bath or shower and it’s constantly wet, it will like most soaps dissolve into nothingness. I highly recommend this shaving soap. It’s wonderful. Previously I was using Black Magic for shaving soap(which also works well), this soap definitely works better as shaving soap.

Pink Slip Shaving soap is currently available online here at OHWTO.COM. For $5.95 you will receive a dark-pinish 4oz square bar. This soap came in a stiff cellophane bag sealed with a sticker stating what the product was and what company it was from. Then it was wrapped in saran wrap with the ingredient sticker. One bar should last around 2 months. This product is vegan.

Official description:Originally formulated as a gentle facial soap for more mature skin, skin which might not have appreciated Black Magic facial soap, Pink Slip was built on a different base and with different Essential Oils, for different needs. Then I tried it as a shaving soap and it was all over, heh. This stuff is AWESOME for shaving with.

Starting with an already-great vegan-friendly soap base, I added French pink clay, vitamin E, Chamomile, and a cheery blend of essential oils- Geranium Bourbon, Lemon, Peru Balsam, Frankincense, Lavener, Ylang Ylang, and Bergamot. The scent is not overpowering, and while as a perfume it might be more of a woman’s scent, as a soap it’s completely unisex.

The trick to getting the best performance out of this soap is a nylon bath pouf. You know the ones I’m talking about, I think we all have one in our showers, or have at some point. I’ve used my usual bristle brush, and washcloths, and even just my hands, all of which worked okay to varying degrees, but to really make the best lather, the bath pouf is superior. A rich, thick, pink (hence the name) and long-lasting lather comes out of those things when used with this soap that’ll put any commercial shaving foam to shame.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, palm oil, Safflower oil, Vegetable glycerin, Purified water, Sodium hydroxide, Sorbitol, Sorbitan oleate, Soybean protein, Wheat protein, Proprietary essential oil blend, French pink clay, Vitamin E, Chamomile.

 

 


Final thoughts, Would I purchase this again? Yes, yes I would. I love this soap. I like that the scent isn’t overpowering, I like that it feels like silk on wherever it is that you’re shaving. Since it lasts so long, the cost is so minimal it’s not even funny. Ahem for those who use it on the nether regions it does not irritate. Just saying… Anyways, you want this soap, you really do. Shoo, go on, go buy it! Shop description is spot on.

NOTE
With this soap I highly recommend some sort of soap holder so it can dry out between uses. I am a fan of wooden soap holders such as these They’re pretty cheap. I also recommend the razors from Dollar Shave Club. Husband and I get the $9 razors. BES t.t HING.EVER

Ermahgerd. You’re going to die. Becca from One Hand Washes The Other brought back fragrances from 2010 and 2011, as well as new scents for 2012. Get ready for a giant fragrance list! I love Autumn. It’s my favorite time of the year. The air is cool and crisp with the scent of leaves turning. I can’t wait to make apple cider and go to the pumpkin patch. Pumpkin Eater and Burning Times are two of the several OHWTO scents that make Autumn better for me. BUY THEM. Ahem. The following scents are available in a multitude of ways. There are solid scents for $5.50, oils for $10 and several other things. Some products are only available in certain scents.

Returning from 2010 and 2011 we have the following:
Coven: a deep, spicy blend of jack-o-lanterns, dragon’s blood, patchouli and amber, spiked with citrus and grounded out by a drop of dark and smoky vetivert.

Sugar Skulls: this is a blend inspired by Dia de los Muertos, or, the Day of the Dead, specifically the sweet treats available at this time of year. You’ll smell sweet baked goods, vanilla cookies, anise, and roses- all the scents of a stroll through a Mexican neighborhood at that time of the year.

Pumpkin Eater: No, it’s got nothing to do with that movie from the 60’s… it’s more to do with a story. As long as anyone can remember, the tale’s been told, every Halloween night one can go up to old Peter’s house, past the cemetery and up the hill, through the pumpkin field and the wood just past it, and catch a glimpse of his ghost if you bring him an offering of a pumpkin. Surrounded by pumpkin fragments, they say he can be seen sitting where his body had been found years before, still consuming the flesh of pumpkin after pumpkin, as though he’d never left. This fragrance smells of mangled pumpkin flesh, tilled earth, and a dash of spiced cider, haunted by an apparition of patchouli. This fragrance NEEDS skin to fully blossom into its full potential, please don’t judge this one on cold sniff in the tube/bottle!

Calaveras: Named for the sugar skulls which adorn the Day of the Dead altars, this fragrance is sweet and spicy. Cinnamon, sugar, orange, and sweet breads dressed up with a smattering of dried roses on a sandalwood altar.

Burning Times: “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”; motivated by fear, or some would say, by greed, the execution of a witch nearly always included the burning of her body, though the method of dispatch may have varied. Vanilla, Clove, Patchouli, Pink Peppercorn, a hint of Suede, Red Musk, Sandalwood, Cinnamon, Cedarwood, and the smoldering Embers of a thousand years.

Solanum: Infectious! The virus responsible for all instances of zombie outbreaks, solanum has a 100% fatality rate, and yet somehow the undead never seem to stink too terribly. The toxicity level of undead flesh slows down the process of decomposition, killing most bacterium foolish enough to try to decompose a zombie. All studies thus far have shown an absence of bacteria in the flesh of the undead. This has the interesting side effect of giving most zombies little offensive smell other than slight flesh decay, due to the absence of the bacteria responsible for body odor and the traditional smell of rotting flesh. Rotting pumpkin, Apple cores, Raspberry, Almond, Madagascar Vanilla, Cardamom, and a hint of Immortelle because zombies never die.

Mirror Witch: Legend says that in order to summon the spirit of Bloody Mary, also known as The Mirror Witch, you must say her name thirteen times in front of a mirror, in the dark; it is said that on the thirteenth repetition she will appear. Upon appearing, the Mirror Witch may do any number of things to her summoners, depending entirely upon her mood upon being awakened. If she’s not offended you may get away with a scratch, but offend her and the price may very well be your life. Reverent gifts of Pomegranates, Dried Figs, White Sage, Candied Ginger, and a vision of White Musk.

Bobbing for Apples: A game traditionally played at Halloween parties, bobbing for apples involves a water-filled tub and apples floating in it, waiting for you to pick them up with your teeth. Fun!Fresh Apples, Apple Skin, Bonfire Smoke, Hay Bales, and Tonka Beans.

Green Lady: Poor Elizabeth; after her husband Benjamin didn’t return from a trip to town when expected, Elisabeth went out into a terrible storm to find him, and then tragically drowned in a nearby swamp during the search. Some people have questioned the story and wonder if Benjamin may have murdered her and covered up his heinous deed with the drowning alibi. Regardless of exactly what caused her demise, she has been roaming the damned earth for centuries. Appearing to startled visitors as a green mist, which becomes the clearly defined shape of a woman in a green dress, she then gives an otherworldly smile before disappearing just as quickly. Green Bartlett Pears, a basket of Figs, and an apparition of spectral Musk.

Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things: A creepy multimedia fragrance experience, see this video ; sweet baby sweet baby sweet baby. Acorns, Oak, Vanilla, Apples, Roasted Spiced Pumpkin, a bit of Musk and a mound of freshly-dug Dirt. Sort of disturbing!

Final Girl: The Final Girl is a horror/slasher film character type which specifically refers to the last female alive to confront the killer; the sole survivor who lives to tell the story. A crushed corsage of Magnolias and Carnations, the Musky Cologne of a Maniac, a whiff of Oil from a freshly-sharpened Chainsaw blade, and the paralyzing scent of Fear.

And, new for 2012, these fantastic fragrance offerings:

Jack. In Black.: Charred, sooty, dirty pumpkin flesh, Arabian musk, Pomegranate, Tea, and a handful of penny candy snatched from an unsuspecting trick-or-treater’s pillowcase.

Seance: Nutty bold-roast coffee, heavy oak furniture, carved sandalwood totems, dried herbs, neroli, vanilla’d figs, and a wreath of clary sage to ward off bad spirits.

Dullahan: A tribute to the original headless horseman! An abundance of harvest spices, black leather, black tea, clary sage, buttery caramel, and civet.

Ravensblood: The last blackberries of the year, dark musk, licorice spiked with clove, guiacwood, labdanum, sandalwood, patchouli, and a bright twist of lemon.

Equinox: A veritable cornucopia of harvest time goodness! Fresh apple butter, spiced breads and iced pastries, just-pressed cider warmed with ginger and mulling spice, roasted figs, berries, pomegranates, bonfire smoke, amber, and patchouli.

County Fair: Ripe peaches, Macintosh apples, pumpkin pie, mandarins, black currants, raw honey, plums, Bartlett pears, just-baled hay, orange blossom, and white amber.

Pumpkin Bread Pudding: After blending this I decided it needed to be food, so I googled it to see if had already been done, and sure enough: voila! I haven’t tried this recipe myself yet, but I plan to soon, with minor alterations. This scent is, mmmmm- please do not consume it. Follow the recipe I linked instead if you feel the urge to eat your wrists. Bruleed pumpkin puree, buttermilk, cream, bourbon, bread, vanilla, honey, & pumpkin spice. Actual Madagascar vanilla beans are infused in this one, so you may find a speck or two in the finished product- and many more in the perfume oil, but that’s done intentionally, for aging purposes.

Gracie: Little Gracie Watson. Dead at 6 of pneumonia, her ghost is said to still haunt her childhood home, the Pulaski House, in downtown Savannah, GA. Gracie’s parents had a life-sized sculpture of her made, and you can visit her in Bonaventre Cemetery if you’re so inclined. Be sure to bring flowers- Gracie loves flowers. Roast chestnuts, pumpkin, brown sugar, amber, tobacco leaf, vetiver, cassia, and lavender.

Dudleyville: Located in Dark Entry Forest in Cornwall & Cornwall Bridge, CT, Dudleyville (also referred to as Dudleytown) has been called the most haunted place on Earth. I don’t have the room here to go into the entire story, but it’s a fascinating one involving curses, death, insanity, vortexes, demons… and more. This website’s got a pretty good rundown of the backstory and what to expect should you venture out that way (my advice- don’t do it): http://www.legendofdudleytown.com/town1.html Dried leaves, wood smoke, patchouli, fennel, dirt, palo santo, petitgrain, spectral musk, amyris, catnip, ginger, and cardamom.

Headshop Halloween: It’s the scent of your favorite local headshop at Halloween time! Nag Champa incense, pumpkin, vanilla, frankincense tears, & sandalwood.

Sticky Fingers: A light, white scent comprised entirely of foody notes. Keep away from children and pets and anyone who doesn’t know better than to eat perfume. No, really. Creamy white chocolate, gooey marshmallow, a plump dollop of cream cheese frosting, tonka bean absolute, and warmed coconut milk.

Harvest Moon: A circle of dandelions in the grass, spiced blackberries, tart lychee, red tea, sandalwood, and hints of floral amber.

Down a Dark Path: It’s where many a good scary story starts. Fresh figs, Dried Leaves, Carnations, Oakmoss, Amber, Sage, Black Pepper, Pumpkin, Vanilla, Pomegranate, Beeswax, Rhubarb, Lavender, and the scent of an unidentifiable animal stalking you in the shadows between the trees.

Becca from One Hand Washes The Other is a genius. I’ve recently fallen more in love with my beloved Black Magic soap. I’ve been using it on my face for awhile now. It’s been the only thing that keeps my acne away, even when my moon cycle comes around.

Stolen from the shop:
[quote]Tea Tree oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Glycerin, French Green Clay, and Activated Charcoal. In addition, the soap is made after I HAND INFUSE the base (and then filter it) with heaps and heaps of healing Calendula petals-

-Tea Tree Oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, fungicide, antiseptic; its believed to heal wounds quicker and protect them from infections, as well as help neutralize the scar marks and after spots left by eruptions, boils, pox, acne etc.

-Peppermint Essential Oil contains Menthol, which gives a cooling effect. It nourishes dull skin and improves oily skin.

-Grapefruit Essential Oil is antioxidant, antiseptic, disinfectant; it’s said it keeps the skin clean and is particularly good for treating oily skin and acne.

-French Green Clay is very absorbent, and literally drinks oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion, and tightening pores.

-Calendula has a long history of use as a wound-healing and skin-soothing botanical. It has impressive healing powers, and can clear up many different types of skin problems.

-Vitamin E helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

-Activated Charcoal has the ability to attract other substances to its surface and hold them there. This is called “adsorption” (not absorption). Charcoal can adsorb thousands of times its own weight in harmful substances.

-Glycerin aids in preventing breakouts and keeping pores clear. It also can speed healing of present acne lesions. It is not inflammatory and will not irritate skin like many other products with harsh chemical ingredients.[/quote]
DSC_32573

As you can see above I like to cut up my bars. The bar above is a special glycerin free formula that Becca made for me. My skin hasn’t been reacting to glycerin so I have one of her regular bars on its way to me! Anyways. I like to cut it up so it doesn’t get wasted.

I recently discovered that Black Magic makes an excellent shampoo to add to its amazing face wash capabilities. Today while talking with Becca in my makeup group on Facebook I had the idea to use it as tooth soap. I’ve been ordering “tooth chips” on Etsy for awhile now to use in place of regular tooth paste. They taste awful. Black Magic on the other hand tastes much better. It’s slightly sweet. It cleaned my teeth well, didn’t taste awful and there’s nothing in it that will harm you if you ingest a little.

Other ideas I had were to use the cream version of Black Magic and either sprinkle Xylitol on your brush or to simply mix some xylitol in the cream. Xylitol helps rebuild enamel and kills bacteria.

So Black Magic is awesome for: a facial cleanse, shampoo, body was and tooth paste! Is there anything it can’t do?!

Mirror Witch by One Hand Washes The Other
Serpentina by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Mirror Witch
Legend says that in order to summon the spirit of Bloody Mary, also known as the Mirror Witch, you must say her name thirteen times in front of a mirror, in the dark; it is said that on the thirteenth repetition, she will appear, Upon appearing, the Mirror Witch may do any number of things to her summoners, depending entirely on her mood upon being awakened.

Reverent gifts of Pomegranates, dried Figs, white Sage, candied Ginger, and a vision of White Musk.

Serpentina
Serpentina is a crisp, green, ethereal fragrance with a little opium bite. More than a dozen different scent elements and several days of methodical alchemy make Serpentina no ordinary scented oil mix—it’s a truly inimitable fragrance,

COMMENTS
Mirror Witch is a scent I wasn’t sure I’d like, but I love it. When paired with Serpentina I smell fig, sage and this exotic floral something. It’s a lovely combination, both scents are delicious on their own but together, oh man. You need to try it.

You can find Serpentina from Darling Clandestine‘s etsy shop in a solid perfume for $9 and in a perfume oil for $13. Unfortunately Mirror Witch is an autumn/Hallow’s Even scent from One Hand Washes the Other. They’ve been retired until autumn.

I Smell Like A Witch by One Hand Washes The Other

NOTES
I Smell Like A Witch
A special request for Luna of Toxid-Lotus.net, I smell like a Witch came about when a little boy told her that the combination of scents she was wearing made her smell “like a witch”. Heh. Red & White Roses, Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum, Smoke, Sandalwood, Patchouli & Vanilla Bean.

COMMENTS
I was super excited when Becca made this for me, it was perfect. When I first put this on I can smell the rose and bubble gum, then it settles to a smokey/rosey/incense smell. It’s like walking through a rose garden getting wafts of rose, only it’s filled with smoke and incense too. I also love layering this with other scents. Also you can read the back story here. :)

You can find I Smell Like A Witch from OHWTO in a solid scent for $4 and as perfume oil for $9.

Be Mine by One Hand Washes The Other
Morderteile Kelah by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Be Mine
Be Mine is the smell of a thousand heart-shaped cinnamon red-hots sprinkled liberally on buttercream-frosted cupcakes, accompanied by a bowl of punch, cups of coffee and tea; all served at an antique wooden table laden with roses, jasmine and orange blossoms; the perfect Valentine’s Day afternoon teatime treat.

Morderteile Kelah
Amber, hyacinth, milk and strawberry jam, brewing in a batch of double-barrel scotch, aged 12 years.

COMMENTS
I’m not usually a fan of “foodie” smells but gosh this smells good. At first this combination smells almost like apple pie, the cinnamon is really strong, then it mellows out and smells musky, and sweet with a touch of amber. It makes me feel like I’m having a picnic in the middle of meadow in the summer, where I’m not dying of heat or breaking out all over from grass allergies. xd

You can find Be Mine from OHWTO as a solid scent for $2.80 or as a perfume oil for $7.20. It’s on clearance as it’s a Valentine’s Day fragrance. Morderteile Kelah is currently un-released from Darling Clandestine but will be available in solid scent soon.

Veritas by One Hand Washes The Other

NOTES
Veritas
A fragrance inspired by The Boondock Saints. At last.
Veritas, the left hand to Aequitas'(from Darling Clandestine) right, is a green chypre scent, though the perfume itself is a cloudy whiskey gold. This perfume was meant to evoke the imagery from the Boondock Saints, and with that in mind I set out to gather components that would do just that. The notes used are almost too many to list, but include a quartet of sensual musks, church incense, white funerary freesia and lilies, shamrock clover, men’s aftershave, bourbon vanilla, gun oil, Irish whiskey, smoke, worn leather, and tobacco absolute. So as not to leave anyone out, this scent is perfectly unisex, though as with any perfume oil, your skin may “amp” up certain notes more than others, so your mileage may vary.

COMMENTS
I realize the notes up there is like a paragraph long but omg this smell is amazing. It’s musky, smokey and dirty and it smells like an old saloon with perfumes and cologne and smoke and alcohol and everything. It’s amazing. It makes me see an old saloon. Ugh, it’s awesome. Gosh I never liked perfumes much until I found indie. <3 You can find Veritas as a perfume oil for $12 at the OHWTO etsy shop.

Mad As Birds by Darling Clandestine
Toxid Lotus by One Hand Washes The Other

NOTES
Mad As Birds
is a sweet, cool, garden-dew fragrance with notes of pear and mint and amber and marigolds.

Toxid Lotus
is like I Smell Like A Witch’s older sister, you know, the one always in trouble for doing something devious. Blackened dark Musk, Red Wine, Damask Rose Absolute, Frankincense, Baby Roses, Myrrh, and a hint of White Amber.

COMMENTS
I’m no expert in perfumes, but I know what makes me feel good, what provokes a memory and just what smells good to me. Mad As Birds is an amazing smell. I wear it quite often paired with other scents. It’s wonderful on it’s own and mixed with other things. Mad As Birds smells like musky/herby florals to me. Toxid Lotus is a special blend Becca from OHWTO made for me. It smells like old victorian houses, incense and smoke, with a hint of rose to me.

You can find Mad As Birds from Darling Clandestine in either a perfume oil for $17 or as a solid perfume for $10. You can find Toxid Lotus from One Hand Washes The Other as a perfume oil for $9 or as a solid scent for $4.

If you haven’t tried One Hand Washes The Other yet you’re really missing out. Besides having my holy grail black magic soap, Becca also makes perfume oils and solid scents. She made a scent for me called I Smell Like a Witch(I know I’ve mentioned it before, but had to do it again). It’s amazing and exactly what I wanted. The actual notes are Cotton candy, rose, patchouli, vanilla, sandalwood, smoke, and bubble gum. Seriously if you haven’t smelled it you need to. It’s heavy with a rose scent, which is what I wanted, so if you love roses, yeah you need this. Also you need this so you can be a creeper and smell like me. INHALE DEEP YO.


Also back story on the name… When I was waiting for my first therapy appointment at NARA this lady and her little boy came out and his mom was making a new appointment when the little boy kinda slid onto the 3 seat chair thing I was on and he slides over to me and says “Are you a wtich….” which these big puppy dog eyes, and I was like “why would you ask that?” And he says “Because you smell like a witch” So I said “Why yes, I am a witch” and his eyes got all big and he had this look of sheer amazement on his face then says “I knew you were real…” Then slowly slid back off the chair and backed up to his mom. This was one of three odd experiences I’ve had with children there. I am convince the children of the corn go there for dr’s appointments. Also I wonder how many witches he’s smelled in his small life. WTF

Sooooo. The lovely, awesome, creative, super amazing Becca from One Hand Washes the Other made me a custom scent. I asked her to make me something with rose, smoke and cotton candy. Oh she did, and she added a couple of extra things and it smells heavenly, actual notes are: Cotton candy, rose, patchouli, vanilla, sandalwood, smoke, and bubble gum. It’s perfect and amazing and I loves it. I hath named it “I Smell Like a Witch”, and she let me make the label for it. :d I can’t wait to get a bottle of it. So anyways, I shall show you the label and stuff. It’s too bad the interwebz doesn’t have smell-o-vision.

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.

So uh this post is several months overdue, I kept forgetting about the draft. Oops. Anyways. This was my first order from One Hand Washes the Other(OHWTO). I ordered a sample of the Black Magic Soap which everyone has been raving about and three solid scents; Coven, Pink Lady and Frankincense & Mirth. I have to be honest here I ordered the soap knowing damn well it has glycerin in it, but wanted to try anyways. Unfortunately after the third use my face broke out in a rash and horrible hives. Poop stick. Fortunately Becca being the awesomely awesome person that she is made a glycerin free Black Magic Soap which I happened to get in the mail today and will be posting about later!

Onto the scents. I loved Pink Lady, liked Frankincense & Mirth and didn’t really like Coven. Coven smelled too much like sweet baked goods to me, while that’s not a bad scent, it’s not a scent I like all that much. My mom however loved the scent! Becca really goes the extra mile when it comes to packaging. You can tell she really cares about her customers and loves what she is doing. My solid scents came in a nice little organza bag, and the sample soap was wrapped up and inside a plastic baggie. Then there is the awesome little wax sealed envelope. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE that she uses wax seals on them. It makes me smile every time I think about it. On the front of the envelope is a neat little stamp.

I had to open the envelope very carefully because I didn’t want to destroy the awesome was seal(seriously I need some of these I want to send people stuff sealed with a wax stamp!). Inside was a couple of sample pods, a business card and my invoice with a hand written note. See? Freaking awesome! I can say there are a handful of companies who really put effort into their packaging like this, and Becca is one of the best. It’s not required but it’s so refreshing to see and it definitely puts a smile on your face! :d

Anyways onto the pictures! While I am sad the Black Magic Soap didn’t work, I kind of figured it wouldn’t, but am super happy that Becca took the initiative to make a soap formula that I can use! *gives giant squishie hugs to Becca*

I’m trying to find books for Sascha so I can have some when he visits. The only problem is I’m not sure what his reading level is and I’m not sure what he likes to read. So at the moment I’m just looking at age appropriate books for a 9 and a half year old boy. He pretty much likes everything Kai and I do as far as games and things go, so I’m thinking he’ll like the type of books we like too, at least a little. Any suggestions would be awesome! So far I have the following books picked out:

  1. Percy Jackson & the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
  2. Kane Chronicles series by Rick Riordan
  3. Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan
  4. Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica series by James A. Owen
  5. The Last Dragon Chronicles series by Chris d’Lacey
  6. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  7. 100 Cupboards series by N. D. Wilson
  8. Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull
  9. How to Train Your Dragon series by Cressida Cowell
  10. Skulduggery Pleasant Series by Derek Landy[1. this series is actually 10+ but it looks like something he would like.]

Sooo yeah, those are the books/series I’ve had recommended or liked. Thoughts? Suggestions? Also… This is the soap I think I’m getting for Sascha. Becca said she could make it in Grass Stain for me. I think Sascha would like that and the Mountain Dew scent. :SPROUT:


Bahahaha! That is all. Gonna try a sample of this renowned[2. seriously I’ve read nothing but amazing things about this soap from practically everyone I follow. I don’t think I’ve seen a bad review of it.] soap when I order Sascha’s. Hopefully the glycerin in it doesn’t bother me. :)
