Blog-Tember Day 18 | The Soap That Simplifies My Life

Hi friends!

I am back from a day-off of blogging. I missed the vlog challenge entirely! I drove up to spend the day yesterday with  one of my good friends up in San Clemente (known as the "Spanish village by the sea" in Orange County). She is moving to New Zealand in less than 2 weeks so I'm so glad I had hte chance to spend a whole day with her catching up.  We visited a cultural center/museum, tried out a new coffee shop, walked along the pier, got a tasty lunch complete with sweet potato fries and celebratory drinks and walked along the beach. We also talked for 8 hours straight so I didn't get a chance to do my vlog :) But here's vlog from last year's Blog-Tember Challenge just in case you're interested! I'm excited to catch up on your blogs and listen to your vlogs!

Today's Prompt: One product that simplifies your life.

Dr. Bronner's Soap simplifies my life! My husband first introduced me to it back when we were dating. He had the peppermint soap and couldn't stop raving about how it can be used as shampoo and body wash and lasts forever! I was won over (as I am with most things) by the smell. I had started using essential oils around that time and all of Dr. Bronner's products smelled so good to me.  They are ethically sourced and use only organic ingredients. They also pursue fair trade around the world which I think is a plus. (but let's be honest, I use Bath & Body Works candles so I'm not claiming that I pursue all organic things by any stretch of the imagination)

I fell in love with Dr. Bronner's Hemp Lavender Pure-Castile Soap a couple years ago and have been using it every since. It smells amazing. And it simplifies my life because it can be used as shampoo, body-wash, face-wash and to shave. When I go on trips, I just bring a travel size of this and call it good! It's amazing how versatile it is. It can also be used to do laundry or bathe your pets (and I have washed Leonard with it on one occasion just for kicks)

Looking forward to reading about what helps simplify your life!


  1. Hi Heather, this soap sounds amazing! I'm a huge fan of the Soap & Glory range although I do adore all things lavender, I use the Yardley lavender products as a treat if I've had a tough day and I have a lavender pillow spray that is positively dreamy. Fabulous post as always Heather, huggles xx
