A Self-Care Challenge? I Dare You!

A Self-Care Challenge? I Dare You!

 NOTE: The Challenge has begun, so I've removed the sign-up information at the end of this post. If you are interested in future Challenges, please sign up to be notified of them.  What is this self-care challenge all about? It's about introducing you to authentic self-care. Self-care that goes beyond weekly mani-pedis and bubble baths after a hard day. There's nothing wrong with either of those activities; they are certainly acts of self-care. However, self-care goes much deeper than that. Or at least it should. For one thing, it encompasses the whole person. We should be taking care of ourselves,...

Why Journal?

Cindy Jones Lantier Journal Journaling Self-care

Why Journal?

I don't remember when I started keeping a journal, or what prompted my first entry. It was, after all, literally decades ago. What I do remember, however, is that journaling helped keep me afloat during a very difficult adolescence and my tumultuous 20s. There are lots of reasons for keeping a journal; they are as many and as varied as the people who keep them. Here are some of the reasons I keep a journal: The main reason I keep a journal is to get to know myself better and make friends with myself. By writing regularly, I connect with...

Product Spotlight

I've not been feeling well this past week. In fact, I'm having surgery for Cervical Stenosis on Tuesday, 31 January. Quite frankly, the pain is on the verge of being a bit too much for me. It's difficult for me to function with the accompanying pain and numbness, and if I take something that alleviates it, it becomes difficult for me to function because of the strong medication.   All of that is to say that I don't have any new product pics to share with you.   I do, however, have pics of previous products to share. While none of these...

My Riff on Self-Care

Because I'm sure that almost no one wants to see a constant feed of soap and self-care product pictures and rantings, I thought once a month, I'd do something a little different.   I was a Life Coach and Spiritual Mentor before I found soaping. And to be honest, as much as I love soap making, I miss the deep connections with other women that I enjoyed during my coaching / mentoring days. I miss inspiring women and watching them really learn to know their worth and step into that place. It was exciting, and such an honor to be a...

In The Kitchen

I've been busy in the soap kitchen! Which, I’m sad to say is my actual kitchen. I'd love to have a dedicated soap studio. Hopefully within the next year.   But, I digress …   TES got an early Christmas present. Bed Bath and Beyond had some of their KitchenAid stand mixers on clearance, so I bought one. I've wanted one for ages, but the professional series carries with it a hefty price tag. So, I've been making do with a $40 Sunbeam stand mixer. It's not a bad little piece of equipment, but the bowl is kind of small and its power...
