Cioccalata e Arance Soap


This is the soap I blogged about recently, the one with indecent amounts of undeodorized cocoa butter, jojoba, avocado and sweet almond oils, and real chocolate! It's finally ready to go and Cioccalata e Arance (Chocolate Orange) is in my shop. Honestly, it smells so good I have to resist taking a bite of it.

It occurred to me today that I'm at that age when buying an entire book called "The Miracle of Magnesium" for $14.95 seems like an excellent idea. So is going out and buying magnesium at the health food store, then allowing it to live on the kitchen windowsill with all the other vitamins and health supplements my DH and I take. Everyone I know has a kitchen windowsill loaded with this kind of stuff!

Our daughter is going to New York City with her band this weekend. They are spending 4 days in NYC, marching in the St. Patrick's Day parade. These kids are going to get to see The Blue Man Group (second time for her), Spamalot on Broadway, visit Times Square, BB Kings Blues Club & Grill, do a walking tour of Ground Zero, go to the Top of the Rock observation deck, see Tribeca, Little Italy, Greenwich Village and Chinatown, Radio City Music Hall and appear on CBS's The Early Show on Tuesday morning, 3/18/08! This is quite a trip for these young people! I've been to New York before and I haven't done anything except go to the Empire State Building.
