Thankfulness and Black Friday Sale

There are so many, things I am thankful for this year...but my #1 is my boy, my sweet, awesome, rockin', absolutely fantastic 7 year old son, Aidan.  You can see him below with his hot, rockin' momma ;-).

As my fellow American's are aware, tomorrow is the day known as Black Friday.  The day that millions of crazy ass people get up before the ass crack of dawn to go fight through crowds and line up with other crazy ass people in order to buy things on sale.  I am not one of those crazy ass people.  I like sleep.  I don't get enough sleep.  I am NOT  interrupting my sleep to stand in line outside of Macy's in 20 degree weather at 4 am behind some chick with a sleeping bag and scary gleam in her eye... If you're like me, you'll be happy to hear this...

Misty's Top Ten

With so many different fragrances to choose from in my shop, I often have people asking me what I would recommend.  As I was working today on some new products, I thought it might be kinda nice to put together a list of my top 10 favorite fragrances.  So...on with my list!

10.  Thai Coconut - A sweet, exotic scent with an Asian flair! An awesome variation of the traditional coconut, this scent combines coconut milk with lemongrass, vanilla and musk.
9.  Frosted Snowdrops embraces a romantic musk & sandalwood background, while providing the aroma of delicate winter flowers. A sinfully wicked choice for the holidays!
8.  Rosemary Mint is a refreshing blend of fresh rosemary mixed with revitalizing mint in our natural goat's milk soap. A wickedly invigorating concoction!
7.  Hawaiian White Ginger conveys the fresh aroma of these lovely white flowers with soft hints of the ginger spice that make them so unique. A soft floral musk anchors the aroma of this beloved fragrance.

6.  Spiced Eggnog - What better way to get into the Holiday spirit than with the heavenly aroma of creamy eggnog swirled with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg?
5.  Green Irish Tweed - Dashingly debonair...this scent was made by House of Creed specifically for Cary Grant. A spicy-sweet blend of French verbena and lemon, a green Florentine iris and violet leaves, and sublime notes of Mysore sandalwood and ambergris.

4.  Iced Lemon Biscotti - A zesty lemon rind aroma rounded out with buttery yellow sponge cake, toasted coconut and buttercream frosting.
3.  Sea Salt Caramel - You will be more than tempted by this delicious concoction of buttery caramel, brown sugar and rich vanilla! I seriously can't say enough about this soap...the fragrance is to die for!
2.  WickedSoaps' Turkish Mocha Soap has creamy top notes of milk, cardamom, cocoa and a touch of nutmeg. The alluring, complex blend winds down to heady scents of vanilla and honey, and of course, Turkish Coffee. Just imagine yourself in a small corner alley coffee shop in an exotic locale and inhale! If you're a coffee lover, this is a must buy!

1.  My Precioussssssssssss aka Pink Sugar!  One of my favorite scents EVER! I swear, when I use this, I want to eat myself! A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam on a dry down of musks. If there was ever a sinful, wicked scent, this is it!

 So, that's Misty's Top Ten list....what are your top favorites from WickedSoaps?

How do you measure a year?

Green Irish Tweed Sugar Body Polish
Tomorrow is a very special day in the life of's the 1 year anniversary of opening my Etsy shop!  One year ago tomorrow on November 5th, thanks to so many of my good friends, I decided to give my new handmade bath and body business a chance and opened up WickedSoaps on Etsy.  This last year has been absolutely amazing! 

I just can't help it...I...must...sing!  *breaks into song*

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.
In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure
A year in the life?

Ahem.  *bows*  Thank you, thank you very much.  I have no idea why I'm selling soap, I obviously have a future on Broadway, right? 

Spiced Eggnog Gift Basket - An AuntieDis and WickedSoaps Collaboration

Well, I dunno about you guys, but for me, this last year has been measured in bars of soap, jars of lotion, tubs of scrub and all other smell goods of the Wicked persuasion being sold.  And how did I measure this last year, kittens?  By 2,053 sales and counting! 

In honor of that, I am throwing a 5 day long Etsyversary Sale!  November 5th (the day I opened my Etsy shop) through November 9th (the day I listed and sold my first item) save 20% on everything in the shop AND get free shipping on all orders of $50 or more (you know how it works...$50 in product, does not include shipping prices, no custom or wholesale orders, yada yada).
