MIA: Bamboo & Green Tea scented soap
This beautiful, uplifting fragrance is a blend of Ceylon green tea, the crisp fragrance of fresh rain-washed bamboo stems, light notes of jungle red ginger blossoms,
and is rounded off with a touch of white musk.

A seasonal favorite! This pumpkin pie soap smells good enough to eat! (But please don’t!) This is so close to the real thing, you’ll swear your grandmother baked it. There’s no way you can say no to a pumpkin pie on a brisk fall evening. But with goats milk this soap is a definite yes!

A favorite of many, Oatmeal milk and honey is such a light unisex fragrance with a delightfully fragrant blend of sweet cream, toasted oatmeal, and a hint of honey. But to top it off it has light vanilla overtones. Subtle enough to not over bear you yet still fragrant enough to have your shower burst with this delicious fragrance.
Our whipped soap adds a little spice to your life; crack open a jar and indulge in one of the best bathing experiences ever! Our whipped soap is creamy, smooth, and feels amazing on skin.
I am 26. I have a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and, luckily, a job. I graduated HS salutatorian of my class with a 4.1 GPS. Despite working hard, I could not qualify for college scholarships due to my non-citizen status (I am Brazilian). My generous mother helped me afford my “moderately priced” college tuition (which I had to pay “out-of-state” although I lived “in-state”) while I worked part time @ minimum-wage as an after school counselor. Thankfully, I was able to graduate debt free, and with good grades.
Once employed, I worked my @ss off for a year and saved to buy the small home I now “own” (along with my bank). I continue to work my @ss off and feel privileged to have benefits. My furniture is mostly hand-me-downs, my car previously-owned, and my bills (mostly) paid on time. Because of budgeting at work, I am a nurse, janitor, secretary, scrub tech, and my own aid. Every other Friday, I see a bulk of my paycheck withdrawn for taxes, social security, and my insurance. The same insurance that denied the medical procedure I NEED labeling it as “cosmetic”. My “guilty-pleasure”… the 3 dogs I adopted because my big heart cannot bear to think where they would be if I didn’t. They are the loves of my life!
My live-in boyfriend (whom I have dated for 8+ years) can’t find a job despite countless hours searching, applications, with almost no call-backs or interviews. He works part-time for his father so he can at least contribute to our bills. I work nights, we barely see each other, and both have put a tremendous amount of pressure on our relationship. I had an abortion at age 19 because I thought that without a college degree, and a child to raise, I’d be worse off today. Now I am not so sure.
I am, for the first time in my life, in debt, living paycheck to paycheck, barely making ends meet and constantly afraid one day I will lose everything I’ve worked so hard for. I don’t go on vacations, I am not “living the dream”, or splurging on things I don’t need. I am tired, stressed, anxious, frustrated, uncertain of my future, over-worked, and under-paid. As a result my health is declining and I’ve gained a significant amount of weight. Instead of hitting the gym, I currently spend my time looking for another part-time job. Despite it all, I still consider myself LUCKY I’m not worse off.
I don’t want a pretentious life full of glitz and glamour. I just want what EVERYONE DESERVES, to be happy, healthy, and make a significant positive difference in the world. I desperately would like to further my education but am starting to wonder, if it’s even worth it… We want a wedding but can’t afford it… We want kids, but REFUSE to bring them into a world where your job is not YOUR job, your paycheck is not YOUR paycheck, your home is not YOUR home…. And your dreams are just that… DREAMS!
I am the 99%
This is the perfect wedding ring. For the long time you will wear it, the heart will permanently leave a mark on the finger and even without the ring, the heart will always be a symbol of eternal love.
I WANT THIS
