what a great week it has been!!
thanks so much for your support + excitement
about the launch of the trading post.
i can already tell we have an exciting future ahead :)

as i mentioned yesterday,
the sponsors this week have been awesome.
way exceeding my expectations!

today is no exception.
brandi, of buzz planet, is one talented lady
and has learned the art of making soap.
{i am extremely impressed! 
i would have no clue where to even start!}

she gave me a brief explanation of what she does:

"i started with my blend of vegan oils, 
including over 60% olive oil,
added fresh skin-loving coconut milk,
then packed it with tons of exfoliating oatmeal,
ground cinnamon, clove essential oil,
and a hint of real vanilla extract,
which gives this soap it's unique color."

doesn't that description alone
make you want some of her soap??

if that doesn't scream talent,
i don't know what does.

brandi is offering one lucky reader
an amazing little gift bag full of
one bar of "crunchy mama soap"
and one 3 oz. bottle of "crunchy mama lotion."
{pictured above}
