Okay, so: Scrub Away 2010 is FORMULATED! A splash of cleansing spearmint, three chamomiles, a touch of myrrh, coriander and a hint of midnight champagne.

Y'all, the contest and banishing will continue through Jan 31, so everyone can get their stories in. The soap will be available through February.


Happy 2011

This year I have resolved that I will get my houses in order. All of them.

Depending on the moment that makes me feel very eager and excited or like I want to faint.

For those of you who are interested in the SCRUB AWAY 2010 win-a-soap contest: I have decided two things, based on the 2010 stories I've already gotten, which is that I'm going to give away THREE soaps, not one, and that even if your story does not win, I'm going to take the entire comment thread and print it out and do a massive banishing. Specifically I'mma get out a metal bowl and some matches and KILL IT WITH FIRE. Because it is the honorable thing to do. (Specify if you do not want your crappy 2010 story to be part of this banishing, btw.)

So even if you think your crappy luck pales in comparison to that of other people on the thread, post it anyway and I will burninate it.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

The first soap available in my shop is also my first limited edition, available through February for the benefit of those who celebrate the Chinese new year. It is also a mystery soap. Why am I posting it before I formulate it? Well, I don't want 2010 to contaminate the mix. 2010 sucked goats.

Shortly after January 1st, I'll post the aroma notes. Expect something fresh, clean and possibly minty.

If your year sucked as badly as mine did, you'll want to scrub away 2010, too. The best/worst 2010 story of over-the-top crappiness gets a free bar of soap (and a couple of goodies and samples) sent your way.

Post them here in the comments - I allow anonymous commenters, so that people coming from off Livejournal can play, but if you enter anonymously, make sure to post your email address so that I can contact you for a mailing address if you win!

(Edit - oops, had comment screening on by mistake. Fixed now; stuff should show up immediately.)

ETA: Yes, the contest is still on; let's give it an end date of January 16th 31st so everyone has a chance to get their stuff in. Wow, I put one end date in one entry and another in another: yeah, I'm tracking real well. Derr.

Also, I have decided to do a banishing on the crappy year for everyone who'll let me!

The new Eliot, "The Painted Woman" - yes, there's a teensy bit of a pheromone concentrate in there - and a complement to Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Manic Pixie Dream Boy.

Clicky clicky.

So, I've been careful to avoid turning my LJ into a shill blog for my perfume store! Which is great and all, but this combined with the craziness of the last two weeks means I skipped over prime shopping times.

Nonetheless, a couple of assumptions lead me cheerily on:

* People who are a lot like me will enjoy my perfumes!

* People who are a lot like me may also have not finished their Christmas shopping!

As such, it is UPDATE TIEM!

New items in the shop include:

* Bath salts - available in multiple scents;

* Manic Pixie Dream Girl exfoliating scrub;

* some T.S. Eliot-inspired perfumes,

* a new scent, Coffee and a Clove, that I think many of you will LOVE.

For those of you in the States who wish to be daring (since this may or may not get it there in time, depending on where in the States you are) order tonight and you'll have priority shipping for the regular shipping fee. If you're a local, defined as within 15 miles of Portland, Oregon, I can hand-deliver on request. ([ profile] darthsunshine, how about that coffee?)

Upcoming: a limited-edition soap... and a contest.
