Bubble Crumble Recipe & Tutorial

Wowwzers! It's been such a long time, let me know how I do with this blog post; I'm a little rusty. 
When I first started making soap, I was mesmerized at the fact that you could take this and put it with that and it creates THIS; magnificent! I was astonished, amazed and eager to know and learn more. I started researching what other types of bath and body products were out there and one of the unique items I came across were bubble bars or solid bubble bath. And I thought, hmm who doesn't love a good bubble bath and the quest began.  I sought out free recipes and tutorials, researched other blogs, was gifted a paid recipe and although that information was great; it wasn't me. Through trial, error and so much wasted money, I came up with my very own recipe that I call Bubble Crumble. Bubble Crumble holds scent well, dries fast and floods your bath tub with not only bubbles but fun colors; you shouldn't have to give up color just because you don't have a bath bom…

Avengers Endgame - Marvels Captain America Soap

If you haven't seen Marvel Studios, Avengers Endgame; please tell me EXACTLY what the hell you are waiting for?

In this house we do not discriminate against Marvel or DC, we just love Super Heroes and Villains alike. I must say, however; Marvel does have some of my all time favorite characters, including but not limited to Black Panther, Iron Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel and the lot. This movie, just like the comics and the movies before it was nothing short of greatness and I'm pretty sure if my man Stan was still here, albeit looking down upon us ( is ), would have been very proud of this one. Let's be honest, this movie was long as hell y'all but undoubtedly, in my opinion, one of the best if not the best Avengers movie to date.

From action to comedy to heartfelt drama, Avengers Endgame was worth the entire 3 hours and 25 minute running time. Which leads me to the inspiration behind my Captain America Soap, initially this soap was supposed to be designed behi…

Pet Sematary - Soap Making Process

If you're like me then you love scary movies, horror movies, Halloween and anything down right frightful and ghoulish. Pet Sematary by Stephen King was one of my favorite childhood movies and just one of my many favorites of all time, albeit, I was no more than a toddler when the original movie actually premiered.
Since I've caught wind of the re-make, I have been very intrigued. You must know, however, I am an "originalist" and very biased against any re-makes of what I would call classic films; primarily because for the most part none of them are good and quite frequently has horrible acting, a bad rendition of the original plot and little or too much false originality. Yes, that's very much how I feel, agree, don't agree, agree to disagree; my feelings will always stand firm and true to the first movie made.
That being said, my tribute still stands to one of the greatest horror films ( books ) of all time. I have used, as always, only the finest of organi…

Cold Process Soap Making Collaboration - The Butterbean Shop

Soap collaborations are a big thing with me, not only does it keep the players in the soap making community to come together, but it's a way for you to get to know the individual(s) that you're in the collaboration with get to know one another on a personal and more in depth level. 

Meghan from The Butterbean Shop is an absolute doll, not only does she make beautiful soaps for sale she most certainly has to be an amazing mom and mentor; her baby girl is ALWAYS popping up in her videos and that I truly admire. Not only do I respect her as a soap maker but a business woman, so the only logical choice, was to ask her to do a collaboration with me and she so generously said yes!
In this soap making collaboration because both of our favorite color is pink, we decided to work around that and a few other sweet elements to make both of our soaps beautiful and whimsical. I chose to use a fragrance from Wholesale Supplies Plus and both titanium dioxide and neon pigments from Nurture So…
