A Perfect Gift

Posted by terrepruitt on January 10, 2015

You might have read my post Homemade Soapy Goodness back in August. I wrote about this yummy soap that I had been buying for a couple of years.  It was really nice soap.  It had essential oils in it and smell great.  It wasn’t cheap, but I considered it one of the splurges I like to as for as a Christmas gift from my hubby.  Well, this year I was counting on him being able to get it for me for Christmas, but when I went to there was nothing there.   I thought she went out of business since there was no product on her website, her Etsy shop was gone, and the e-mail I sent her was returned to me.  There was no notification of discontinuing business or anything.  I’m always a little disappointed when people don’t leave any “out of business” information or a notice as to what is going on.  I know things happen, but when you have a business, I just expect a little information to be dispensed for customers.  Oh well.  It so happened though, I received soap as a Christmas gift.  I actually received two different soaps.  One I have not yet tried, but it smells really good (you’ll probably read about that in a later post).  The other one I received smelled even better so I jumped on the internet to see if I could buy it on Amazon.  And I can.  And I did and it is awesome.  It is my new soap.  It is Verbena Flower scent.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose,  Nia at the San Jose Community Centers, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex City of San Jose, San Jose Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, PiYoIt is very nice feeling soap and even better smelling.  I showed it to my niece when she was here and she couldn’t stop smelling it.  It smells terrific.  It lathers up nice and it leaves me feeling clean.  I don’t like it when I feel like I have a layer of something left on me.

Since I couldn’t get soap from my favorite place — I was lucky to get this soap for Christmas.  I purchased addition bars from French Presents through Amazon.com.

I am just noticing that I purchased Verbena Flower and the one I had received is Verbena.  They smell the same, but I guess they are different.  When I was ordering I hadn’t noticed that there was a Verbena, I thought they had just changed the name from Verbena to Verbena Flower, but now I am seeing they are two different things.  Either way, they smell great and I am happy to have been handed a new soap to love.

I’ve spent a good portion of the last few days “undecorating”.  I’ve only been able to spend a few hours each day on it so it seems to be taking a very long time.  My husband and I spent at least four hours today and it is pretty much packed up.  He is helping me do the part I don’t like and that is putting all the boxes back in the big boxes.  It just baffles me how the small ornament boxes can come out of one box, but when I go to put them back in they don’t fit.  I get frustrated so my husband comes to my rescue.  Not all the ornaments have a box so it makes the process a bit annoying.  I need to work on getting things more organized so it is not as frustrating and therefore less stressful upon putting things away.  I am so grateful my husbands help.

I have been wanting to post about my “soap lady” since I went on and on about her.**  And I wanted to share about my new yummy soap, today seems like the perfect time since I am just able to get up to my computer now.

Seems like more people than I am used to are taking their time this year with taking their decorations down.  I have more friends say they are just starting or just getting done.  How is your “undecorating” going?  Are you done?  And just out of curiosity, what is your favorite soap?

**I just check on my “soap lady” and she might be back in business, but I don’t see my regular package that I used buy and I like this other soap I am buying.  Maybe she took the Holidays off.  Perhaps is she is in business at Christmastime I will ask for soap from her for Christmas.

  1. Sounds like a fun little splurge, I think that anything that makes you smile is worth doing. There are certain scents that truly uplift me…kind of amazing!
