Help! I need a name…

I used to have natural bath bomb in my soap store but I didn’t like the bomb idea. I wanted something more elegant and luxurious so I started experimenting. Here is what I came up with….

It’s like a bath bouquet. I need your help naming it. As you know my soap store is now called Pink With Natural Potions & Lotions and my soaps names are inspired by fairy tales, legends etc.

Although they look just like bath salts they actually contain an element of bath bomb. When you sprinkle some in your bath they fizzle a little. They also contain…

  • Salt from the Dead Sea – known for it’s skin healing abilities
  • Epsom salts to draw out impurities from the body
  • Sweet Almond Oil to nourish dry skin
  • Rose petals
  • Pure essential oils for sensitive skin.

All natural as usual. I need some help with the name. I’ll give a full size away to the the person who comments with the best name for this goodie. (Click here to see the names already used for my products) I’ll also throw in a natural soap of your choice.

Thanks for your feedback :)

It’s been a busy Saturday

I have had such a busy day today. I thought I’d share :)

I took 3 make-up bookings today. The first one was for a wedding in Kildare. I love bridal work, it’s like a dream job helping a woman look her best on her special day. The second one was for a make-up party, a few ladies looking for a Christmas party look, fun, fun, fun! The third one was for a lady who wants a make-up lesson. I love doing make-up lessons, I’m not entirely sure why but I love working one to one with people, getting to know them a little and creating their perfect make-up look. Chatting and make-up, what more could Amy want?! :)

I also had a mental amount of cleaning to do (boring!!)

I also continued my preparations for the make-over day. I visited a cool studio this afternoon. They film some of Off the Rails and Expose there. How cool! It was a great space, with lots of natural light and a great make-up area. I can’t wait to get some girls in there and get started on some make-overs. I forgot to mention, I’ll be choosing the five girls this week.

Click here if you live in in Dublin and could like to enter.




After a busy day (well bust for the weekend) I’m off for some well deserved R&R :)

Have you any nice plans for the weekend?
