soapbox 1 *Items shown c/o Soapbox Soaps.

If you read here much, you likely know I’m a bit granola when it comes to body products. It began nearly 20 years ago when I started making my own soap in large batches, right in my own kitchen. My roommates and friends gave me a bit of side-eye as I mixed my lye solutions, read up on adding oats and essential oils, and jabbered about sapponification. I may have been considered eccentric. I still make some bath & body things and upgraded my ingredients to things like raw shea butter instead of generic grocery store oils. I like knowing where it all comes from. I like knowing the ingredients. Knowing the story.

Soapbox Soaps is a source of bath & body items that fulfills my love for fine ingredients and a good story.
Soapbox Soups is a one-for-one company that donates a bar of soap to someone in need with each purchase. They have donated soaps all over the globe to those who can benefit.

We all benefit from soap. While simply using water and friction does an alright job of cleaning something, soap reduces surface tension and allows one to get the job done more efficiently. The reduced surface tension of water also means less dirt being redeposited. A more efficient clean means less illness and spreading of harmful substances.

Wouldn’t it be great to take part in something that helps everyone have access to a simple bar of soap when they need it?

Aside from a nice cause, Soapbox Soaps offer quality products. The body wash, and hand soap are all free of parabens, petrochemicals, and EDTA. The hair shampoo and conditioner are also free of SLS, SLES, and silicones. They are also vegan and cruelty free. The hair products are color safe and lightly scented, so they are safe for processed hair. I have a tendency to have blue or pink hair these days, so color safe is a must. These are moisturizing items, but without the use of silicone. Instead they nourish hair and skin with shea butter and aloe.

Soapbox Soaps are on the verge of 3 million donations! We are offering support of the Soap = Hope campaign. #SoapEqualsHope

From September 13 through October 13th, readers can use the code justaddclothSbS3M to receive 10% off Soapbox Soaps orders. The code also DOUBLES the donation credit. That’s right. Your order will actually mean two bars of soap are donated instead of one.

A Soapbox set of luxury body products is a great gift idea. I especially like gifts that get used up so they don’t leave clutter around.

Wondering about that soap donation? With each item in your Soapbox Soaps package, there is a Hope Code on the back of the label. You can enter the code at soapboxsoaps.com/hope and see the positive impact you took part in.

So don’t forget: From September 13 through October 13th, readers can use the code justaddclothSbS3M to receive 10% off Soapbox Soaps orders. Your order will actually mean two bars of soap are donated instead of one.

The citrus & peach rose scented items have a lovely light scent that isn’t overwhelming. Plus, the bundle packs are only $29.95 for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, and a bar of soap. I easily spend that much at Target on those items, so having them delivered to my door, knowing the ingredients, and supporting the #SoapEqualsHope cause? Awesome.

A Giant Pot of Zucchini Turkey Black Bean Chili

A Giant Pot of Zucchini Turkey Black Bean Chili

Why a GIANT pot? Well, summer squash and zucchini season is the only time I cook with these vegetables.  And when it is zucchini season, we are FLUSH. Plus, it is hot and humid during zucchini season, so I like to cook a huge pot of dinner one day and then eat leftovers for three days. If you hate leftovers,  you might want to cut the recipe in half and ….

Carrying Babies

*Post contains affiliate links. Carrier c/o Ergobaby. One thing I feel sad about in regards to breaking my ankle this year was carrying and wearing my youngest son.

Some time in the past 10 days the air changed. It is in the 60-70 degree range around here and the air has that dying leaves smell.

Maybe it is no where to be seen in your neck of the woods, here in Minnesota it decided to start leaking out at us ….

Busy Family Life & Back to School Relief

  How INSANE is back-to-school season? I was just buying the eight billion items on the school supply lists and it was a total zoo at the store. Not to mention, the list was insanely long. I just purchased more supplies for one year than I used for my entire public school career. Although, when I think about the number of projects my son brought home from kindergarten last year, ….

Summer mean fresh, seasonal fruit that is just not the same at other times of the year. Save the winter squash for ………winter.

Some of these could be a meal replacement, while some could just be a base for a great ….

Our Main Bathroom Mini Makeover

Our Main Bathroom Mini Makeover

So, seeing as how our house is a modestly sized mid-century rambler, there is one bath tub in the house. Our main floor has the main bathroom, plus a small awkward quarter bath right across the hall. I imagine the tiny quarter bath used to just be a linen closet at some point. Anyway, the main bath is the one we all use since it has the only tub. It ….
