Ohhh...A Contest!

One of my lovely customers just informed me that my Aromatherapy Bath Salts are featured in a contest right now. Yea! I love contests. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna win like a million dollars or a car or scoot on over and vote!
You have to search a little for me. But if I win the million, I promise to share.

Violette Viola

Today was a day of repeating Violets.
This morning I had a conversation with a friend about Grandmas and I told him about mine who happens to have the coolest name ever. It's Violette Viola Smith. (please don't steal eggs are still good)
Then this afternoon, one of my very best customers and friend, (hi Patti), called to have me put together some gifts for a baby shower. The baby's name is Violetta and the theme is well, of course violets.
And just now, I opened a book and read the following......

"Surely as cometh the Winter, I knowThere are Spring violets under the snow."- R. H. Newell

kiss & tell

Yes, I am obsessed with kissing this week. It's almost Valentine's Day...give a girl a break. I love these cups by Trixie Delicious. Been coveting them for awhile. Since I'm getting a new apartment (more on that later), I think I should buy them for myself.
& speaking of kissing & telling, one of my very best lady friends has started a blog on just that....check it out.

Twice as Sweet

Join Sweet Petula & Sweet Anthem Perfume
for our joint Valentine's Day Trunk show
Friday & Saturday,
February 13th & 14th 10-5 at Sweet Petula
208 S. Jackson Street in Pioneer Square

All Sweet Petula products will be 25% off these two days only. We are also fully stocked up on $4.00 "Slightly Unsightly" soap bars and $8 bags of bulk soap.

Sweet Anthem will have many of her custom perfumes ranging in price from $10-$20...a can't beat price point for a sweet Valentine Day treat.
Sweet Anthem is a perfumery based in Seattle, WA run by designer Meredith Tucker. Her perfumes contain a mix of luxurious essential and fragrance oils. They are diluted in jojoba or evening primrose oil which provide a silky texture on the skin. This formulation helps create a long-lasting, divine fragrance experience.
With each new perfume, Meredith creates tributes to women that she admires; be they fictional, famous, or just some of her close friends. You may recognize some of them. *I'm waiting for the "Cordelia" hint hint Meredith...Others you might not. Regardless, they are each deserved of a fragrance of their own. Why must such prestige be reserved for supermodels and celebrities?
Smell nice and feel good, too
Unlike mass-produced, commercial perfumes, Sweet Anthem creates perfume oils using 80-85% concentration rates and dilutes most of the perfumes in jojoba, evening primrose, or pomegranate oil. This formulation creates a silky texture, a long-lasting fragrance, and a skin-safe perfume experience.
*please balance superhero, sex kitten, & ass-kicker, with undertones of earthyness (lets see how many of you actually read down to the end of my posts).

who & what

As I was walking by the Macrina Bakery in Belltown tonight, I saw the most perfect Valentine's Day display. In their window they have a big paper heart that reads, "who & what have you done for love?". And all around this heart are smaller hearts in which people have written their personal answers to this question. It gave me something to think about as I walked home.....not so much the who, but the what for sure. And I must have smiled the entire way home thinking of all the things I've done for love and wondering how different I'd be today had I not taken some of those leaps. Of course I'll never know, and don't really want to because each one of those leaps....even though some didn't turn out the way I had planned...molded & shaped the way I feel about love today. Which is good & happy & makes me feel very very lucky. It was a good walk. And that window will have me thinking for days.
