Take a bite out of this!!

Jaqualotn You've got to love the sweet smell of confection.  Personally, I can't imagine a person ever rejecting anything sweet.  But I know there are those who exist without dessert, although I must say, what a lonely life for your taste buds! (Although maybe it's a better life for your waistline...)  If you are, as I am, one who immediately perks up at the slightest inkling of the chance to consume a chocolate cake, then these sapid little lotions are the perfect stocking stuffer...for yourself. (And, if their lucky, your friends and family!)  Dreamy, ultra-whipped body cream that, best of all, contains the essence of, among other things, chocolate and buttercream.  Imagine infusing your skin with super moist lotion and spending the rest of the day submerged in the scent of a pastry shop.  Moreover, think of everyone who would have to fight the urge to nibble on you...hmmmm.  You may want to get extra and save it for Valentine's Day! (wink wink!)

Sweet candy and desserts can make great Holiday gifts for your friends...or treats for you...to boost your holiday spirit, right?!!

Let's hear from you: If you've got a sweet tooth, what is your favorite dessert?  Are there any treats you make especially for the Holidays?  Share your recipe's!!

Is soap so simple?...

Handmadesoap
There are many things in life that we all take for granted. From pillows to socks, everyone overlooks the very basics en lieu of the spectacular. However, where would you be without pillows? And how badly would your feet smell without socks? It all comes back to that old adage 'you don't know what you got 'til it's gone.' But sometimes, you don't know what you don't got, until you've got something better. Let me explain. Take soap for example--very important. We need it to keep our bodies clean, and, in flu season, we need it to stay healthy. And it's true, anti-bacterial soap doesn't require much thought--grab a bottle of Dial and you're good to go. But what if there was something better? One of the great things about EMERALDS is we like to take the basics, throw in a few twists and give you a unique variation on the other end. Soap is a basic, but I guarantee if you give something other than 'the typicals' a chance, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Yes, there are other soaps out there...better soaps. And once you go handmade--you'll never go back. Introduce something better into your life and, believe me--you'll know what you got and you'll never take it for granted again.

If you have any doubts, just check out the ingredients of your regular soap compared to those of handmade soap...I rest my case!

Wash your sins away

Washsinsaway And what did you do this weekend?? Was is something naughty? If so (and I certainly hope so) then fear not, redemption is in sight. For all the dirty fun that you may have entered into this past weekend Wash Your Sins Away Body Wash is the answer. Still feeling guilty?..no problem. The procedure is simple. Step into the shower, apply a small (or large, depending on how much trouble we're talking about) amount of Wash Your Sins Away Body Wash to a wash cloth, agitate until the wash becomes frothy sin-clearing bubbles and apply all over the body. Rinse and repeat as much as necessary. And ta-da...you can step out of the bathroom free of fault and shame. The best part: you can always do it all over again next weekend!...(wink)

Let's hear from you: What are some of your naughty weekend stories...who out there had a little too much fun this past weekend?? (Oh, and try to keep a reasonable level of cleanliness...)

Girls and baths...

H2O-collectionBaths...aaaahhh, just the word brings with it a brief wave of relaxation. A hot steamy tub of water, candles, a big glass of ice water (or wine whichever you prefer) and some soothing music (my fav: Sarah McLachlan)--you know the drill. And after, your cheeks are rosy, you've sweated all the toxins out of your skin and bedtime sounds better than chocolate cake. How is it that the bathroom became one of your favorite places in the house?? Could it be because girls get to have so much fun in the bathroom? I mean, think about it, we get away with taking our sweet time on ourselves!...Thirty minutes in the shower, thirty minutes on hair, thirty minutes on face, thirty minutes picking out clothes; it can sound a bit exhausting, but don't think of it as extra work, think of it as extra 'YOU-time'!! Between the shampooing, body wash and body spray we get to wear all kinds of luscious scents--I mean, it's great to be a girl!! We take our time in the bathroom, we're pretty, and we smell great dammit!--Aren't we lucky?

Speaking of Sarah McLachlan--I really must say it is amazing bath time music!

Give them a laugh!...

bar_detergentOkay this is just outright silly! Looks like a laundry detergent, but in reality it's body wash....way to confuse your friends. Give it as a gift and have your camera ready for their expression--my guess is you'll get that whole "uhhhh, wow (bewildered smile)...(curious pause) what's this?" Followed by a hearty guffaw upon realizing the gag of the gift. It doesn't have to be the only thing you give, but as an extra-fun addition it's superb! Don't be decieved by the playful nature of this body detergent, it still takes its role as a refreshingly scented bubbly body wash quite seriously; not to mention that there's a soap to match every personality! Toss one into your next gift basket for some lightheated laughs!

It's summer...it's hot...you will be showing off extra amounts of bronzed skin...so slather yourself from head to toe in the ButtercreamBodyButtersense-teasing, hunger-inducing sweet smell of Buttercream!! Grandma's-fresh-baked-cookie smell is some how captured in this luxurious lotion which will have that certain someone wanting to take a bite out of you. To top it off, moisturizing Shea butter, and the anti-oxidant Macadamia nut oil promise to give your skin the richness of its ravishing scent. Like a honey bee to the honey hive, everyone will ask you Whaaat are you weeearing!! With a knowing smile you will nonchalantly reply, "Oh just some ol' lotion I had laying around." It'll be your little secret to success!
