Out Of Stock Till End of September: Breakfast Bars, Summer Fizz

Sorry folks, I haven’t been able to keep up with production quite as well as I thought I would, so these two soaps won’t be ready for sale till the final week of September. :”> My last 6 Breakfast Bars went out in a 12 Soaps For The Year package (thanks Nentze!) this morning. I’ve just one bar of Summer Fizz left at the moment.

Dark Chocolate, Spiced Coffee, DreamTime and Tangy Lavender are all curing as we speak, and they’ll be nestled in their muslin bags in a weeks’ time.

Oh–Happy Merdeka Day to all Malaysians. Let’s all channel our energies towards bringing real, positive change in our country. One baby step at a time. Don’t hold back. 😉

Music Monday – Paul Dateh’s Top 40 Violin Mashup

Hey everyone, did you have a great weekend? We certainly did–the kids went to a one-year-old’s birthday party at my hubby’s office yesterday and as a result, they were asleep from 5pm till this morning at 6:30! When asked, Brandon said he didn’t want any dinner but would only have his bottle of milk and go back to bed after a shower. :p Same went for Andrea, but she was much, much more grumpy about it. :))

Alright, I simply have to share with you another track from Paul Dateh. I’m so impressed with this guy’s musicianship! Hope this peps up your Monday. To all Malaysians, enjoy your Merdeka-eve Monday!

Do You Set Aside Time To Dream?

Often we are told not to daydream for the sake of getting things done in the here and now.

But can you imagine what our world would be like, if it weren’t for the few great individuals who doggedly turned their dreams into reality?

Have a think about that.

For myself, I’ve decided that I’m going to set aside one solid hour every day devoted solely to dreaming–about anything really. Like how different the world could be once my dad’s project takes off and its adoption becomes widespread. What my children will be like when they grow up, and what part I can play to help them find their own feet to become responsible, productive citizens. Or how I’m going to kit out my very own soap studio. 😉

If don’t already do this, then I strongly encourage you to try and make a habit out of it. When you were small, chances are your imagination ran wild–because that is just what children do–and remember how nothing was impossible then. Don’t lose that ability. You’ll be amazed what you’ll be capable of.

Stocking Up

Okay, I’ve got a happy problem–the only soap I have that’s ready for sale is Goats Milk and Patchouli. Everything else, believe it or not, has been sold out, and new batches are out on the curing racks right now:

Soap on curing rack
Soap on curing rack

These will be ready in the final week of August. And I’m not through with this round of production yet! There are still more to come. I’m trying my bestest to keep up with production, scheduling a batch every 2-3 days. It’s hectic but there’s no denying I’m enjoying the challenge. 🙂 With the new wholesale orders (and lovely new customers, hello there!) coming in, I’m making adjustments to my estimations of what to make, how much and when.

So I do apologise if you were thinking of getting soap this week–could you hold out for another week or two? All I have at the moment are the 30g sample-sized soaps for the Sampler Pack of 3. If you’d like to go ahead and place your order, please do–I’ll reserve your soap for you and will advise on the earliest date I can have them delivered to you.

At the root of all this excitement and activity is the fact that you have played a tremendous role in supporting what I do. Thank you for your affinity towards my all-natural soap, and you can be sure that I’ll always have the best of interest at heart for your skin’s wellbeing. I’m grateful and humbled.

Now Available – Sampler Pack of 3

I’ve had a lot of people ask which kind of soap would be suitable for them, or telling me that they weren’t sure of which scents they’d really like. So I’ve decided to put up a listing for a Sampler Pack of 3, where I’ll bundle 3 bars of soap weighing over 30g each, so you can try 3 different soaps at a go! I guess it makes sense too, for those who need to find out which kind of soap is suitable for their sensitive skin, without having to worry about purchasing the ‘wrong’ kind of soap.

Just e-mail me with your choice of samples and I’ll pack them up for you in a jiffy. 🙂 Hope you’ll find this useful! Purchase the sample pack here.

Music Monday – Oh Fortuna (Carmina Burana)

How about something a little grand to start this week? Back in my undergrad days I joined the Warwick University Choir and we sang this number at one of our many performances. I think there were about a hundred of us on stage! All kinds of fantastic imagery comes to mind when  you listen to this piece, I think. Epic scenes of good versus evil, dragons in flight, a magician casting a spectacular spell.

Hope you enjoy this particular rendition. Happy Monday everyone!
