Extra Spotlight - Down-Right Creepy Soap

Extra Spotlight – Down-Right Creepy Soap

There are some products that are down right creepy, sometimes on multiple levels, whether meant to be or not. In fact, I know that some of these items are not marketed for their scare factor, but I can’t help being a little frightened by them. I feel that body parts and creepy dolls would be very disturbing sitting on a …

Sunday Spotlight – Coocoo for Coconuts

I just love coconut…the scent, the taste, the richness, the creaminess, everything. There were so many delicious coconut products that even after narrowing it down to be just a coconut or creamy coconut fragrance, I still had a hard time choosing products. I opted to give you more product porn versus not enough. We don’t want anyone going to bed …

Sunday Spotlight - Bay Rum

Sunday Spotlight – Bay Rum

Strangely enough, it also reminds me of pirates, and apparently, I’m not the only one because I found a pirate soap in that scent. Enjoy …
