Black Friday Soap Sale!

I have been meaning to have a soap sale on the Etsy shop but just haven’t been able to nail down a specific date which is why a black friday sale just seemed to make sense.

This sale will go on for two days to allow for a more reasonable time period for shoppers, more details and updates will be available on the Tangerine and Me instagram page.

Holiday Soap Release

The holidays are ever so quickly approaching which means that the rush to buy presents has officially begun.

I don’t know about you but I am an early shopper who tends to buy most gifts throughout the year but forgets that they aren’t ready then proceeds to rush to finish them all off.

The holidays can be extremely stressful if we allow them to be and do not get ourselves organized ahead of time, especially if you forget about those few last minute gifts.

Handmade soap is just about the perfect option for all of your gift giving needs, whether you need a gift for that one, picky person or just another stocking stuffer to finish the holidays off.

Soap is a gift that will please just about anyone and is neither wasteful or unneeded.

You will find these new products here.

September 4th Soap Release

September’s soap release is very much just an odd compilement of the soaps that didn’t quite cure on time to be released in August.

With the holidays coming up I have been on a strict no soap making diet for the last few weeks in order to stock up on ingredients so this month’s new selection is more around the amount of soaps that I plan on introducing from now on.

If your curious about the details of any of the soaps listed here then you can hop on over to the Tangerine and Me Etsy shop where I have a much more, in-depth description of each new product.

For the time being all new soaps being released will be limited additions only, so if one catches your fancy make sure you buy it since it might not be restocked!

 

September Releases |

Unscented Shea Soap

Chamomile Castile Soap Balls

Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey Soap Balls

Weekly Chats | Grating Soap and Melancholy Thoughts

Welcome to the first weekly chat post, a series that I hope can become a staple to the Tangerine and Me blog.

Since I recently renovated this blog into a more business oriented platform I wanted to find a way to still keep it interesting and personal upon occasion. And so the weekly chats series was born.

Shop Talk | The month of June was the birthday of the Tangerine and Me soap shop which was incredibly exciting as well as equally scary.

It was a relatively successful beginning with many lessons and realizations that could only come through experience and a few failures.

The dozens of fragrant soap bars cluttering my cabinets seemed like a hefty product selection to open shop with but I quickly realized just how few products I actually had to offer once each listing was put up.

That little lesson has taught me to be less hesitant when it comes to stocking up, so this month will be all about making, making, making.

Slow Moments | To be terribly honest, I haven’t made much room for slowness as of late.

Growing a business, writing a book, taking care of health issues, and just living life in general is apparently a lot for one persons plate and I just happen to be trying to balance all of that.

I have stuck to my routine of leaving one day free a week to relax and spend as I please, a few work related things might worm their way in occasionally but as a rule I usually just stick to take a breather.

One strange but calming thing that I have found myself doing recently is grating soap. It sounds crazy, I know, but I have been experimenting with some new soap products lately and I have found myself, more than once, completely lulled into a strange state of calm as I grated a chunk of soft soap into wispy, little strips.

Thoughts | Lately I have been thinking about balance and how it is such a rickety concept that is constantly changing with the times and seasons and how once you seem to grasp it everything changes and you have to start again.

Perhaps that melancholy thought has been in my mind because I am still struggling daily to keep up with life or perhaps it is merely bred from my fear of falling behind and somehow failing that goal that we are all taught to strive for.

There are times where I sometimes feel like I might permanently be trapped in a mid-life crisis with all of the melodramatic thoughts that seem to clutter my mind.

But for now I will keep trying to find that sneaky little thing called balance with the hopes of one day finally grasping it.
