The Perfect Soap to Go With the Perfect Man

God what a year!

Some highlights include the 91 lbs I lost (so far), the incredible success I experienced at work with regards to bringing in revenue and...perhaps most important...falling in love.

So, when I initially told the new man that I write a blog about soap (or wrote, I suppose, given my recent negligence in updating) he laughed.  Hysterically.  And teased me.  Incessantly. 

At first, he just didn't get it.  For example, while at a hotel in Westchester, he teased me asking if I would write about the hotel smelled of mandarin and mint and he thought it may be blog worthy.  So I tried to explain that not all soap is created equal.  I pontificated that I feel cleaner when I have washed with a soap that was lovingly created by someone  in their home or shop.  I informed him that I like unique scents. colors and textures.  And then I got a little embarassed.

But now I'm over it.  And then, while visiting my family and me in Georgia over the holidays, my fella says he wants to buy me soap.  I looked at him incredulously and asked him why.  Turns out, the blogging is actually "cute."


The positive outcome is I got this:

Again, from Nourish in Savannah.  Love.


  1. I actually had planned to ask you at lunch if you were going to Nourish. It doesn't look like we'll be getting to Savannah any time soon and I hate to buy what I can't sniff in person, so I was going to see if you would let me know if they had anything new you thought I might like. Any chance you remember such a thing so I can place an order with them online? It's the least you can do since you got me started on this whole all-natural soap adventure and I will now use NOTHING else anywhere on my body. ;-)

  2. I need to use this soap and review it. The clove smells amazing. There wasn't a tremendous amount of new stuff there. I've got a bunch of soap to work through and need to start posting about it. No worries. I am on it! Promise.
