They are finally ready! The new batches of Artisan Organic Soap. Newly blended with rich ingredients, unique to each hand blended fragrance. From Lemongrass herbs to Black Walnut powder, aromatic essential oils of Anise through Ylang Yalng, these soaps are drenched in fresh botanicals and crystal floral waters. (Descriptive words are my forte, second to soap making, of course.)
Mega conditioning and supremely gentle. Handcrafted in modestly small, cold-process batches from scratch, with only the purest, sustainable organic ingredients to nourish and indulge your skin. Lather. Rinse. Love your epidermis.
Absolutely Free of All:
Parabens or Formaldahydes • Sodium Sulfates (SLS) or Detergents • Propylene or Butylene Glycols • GMO or Triclosan or Alcohol • Animal bi-products or testing
Now weighing 5 ounces and measuring 2.5″ x 3.25″ x 1″, these soaps have been formulated to stay harder, longer. (No dirty jokes please, this is soap after all.) However, as always, to increase your soaps longevity, always keep dry when not in use, wire and wood soap dishes work wonders. (I am currently seeking a partnership with another hand crafter to produce a line of soap dishes. Please contact me if you are interested or know somwone who would be!)
Indeed we are hosting a giveaway! This time you have a chance to win one of four $25 Gift Certificates to LuxuryLaneSoap.com PLUS your choice of any available Artisan Organic Soap. ♥ It is super simple and we are going to use Rafflecopter again as it was voted easiest and most efficient last week.
These last two weeks have been pretty slow and there really isn’t much to report. Essentially I want this entry here so I have notes on all weeks. Pretty thrilling, huh?
New things are happening in the Luxury Lane Laboratory and while it is immensely exciting, it is also incredibly taxing. During the summer, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay on task with the kids continually needing to be fed and cared for. (When does school start again??) We have also had family coming and going which means any free time I have (Ha!) gets eaten by that damn deep cleaning of the house. You know, because what if someone actually looked under a bed?
So, what to look for in the coming weeks ahead? Giant versions of your most favorite Whipped Up Sugar Scrubs, TWENTY new Organic Artisan Soaps, newly reformulated hair care and gift certificate giveaways. See? I really have been mega busy…
After spending the week prepping for Mega Business Friday, I want to put it out there that everything is on hold until Monday. As posted on the Luxury Lane Soap facebook page:
“We are going silent today for Colorado. All business announcements are on hold until Monday. Shipping and production will continue as scheduled, however, networking is on hold as we take time to hug our family and friends. Please take today and spend some extra time loving those you care about.”
Some of the people I care most about in the world live in Colorado. From my oldest friend (Yes you, Courtney ♥) to my newest crushes, Colorado holds a lot of love from me. Words can not form in a way which could express the sheer panic when I heard the news because this is the kind of event the majority of my friends WOULD have attended. It hurts. It hurts knowing these people I love could have been taken away forever. People I only get to see once, twice if I am lucky, during the long stretch of a 365 day year.
Nothing I say can fix what has happened. There is a lot of pain happening for a lot of people right now and for the first time ever, I feel like I have been punched in the stomach with a chainsaw.
I am sending so much love to all of you right now. Words are just simply not enough today.
This week we are giving away 2 $50 gift certificates to LuxuryLaneSoap.com! By entering below, you have a chance to win said mega awesome prize!
It’s easy peasy, too. I hounded twitter to let me know which raffle/blog giveaway service they thought was the bee’s knees and Rafflecopter.com kept on coming up. Please let me know what YOU thought of the process in the comments below. If the crowd goes wild, I think we may start doing this every week…Awesome? Yes. ♥
Why? Well, why not? Honestly, I wanted to come up with a way to thank you for helping me shape this company. This is something I would like to to do every week for the rest of forever and this first campaign is a test to feel out crowd participation and interest.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. See you bright and early Monday morning.
