For Christmas 2012 I was given a cute little Jane Austen themed five year journal. This journal had a page for each day of the year, and each page had five slots so you could go through and write four lines a day for a year, and then flip back to January 1 and start all over again. After 5 years you’d have half a decade of short, stacked journal entries for every day of the year.
This pretty yellow and green soap smells of fresh citrus, suds up beautifully, and leaves your skin clean and happy.

If your feet are feeling a touch tough after a summer of cavorting about in sandals (or less), this seaside scented foot scrub is just the thing. If you’re in a hurry you can scrub and go, or you can apply it as a mask for a bit of an at-home pedicure.
If you’re using homemade shampoo bars to wash your hair, an acidic rinse isn’t really optional—it’s a must. Because the high pH of true soap raises the scales that make up your hair, you’ll need to smooth them back down with something acidic or you’ll find your hair is quite coarse and tangly. That’s where this lovely rinse comes in. Infused with all kinds of good-for-the-hair ingredients, it comes together in a flash and leaves your hair silky smooth and shiny.
