See that pattern in the middle? That’s my pattern, Watercolor (Sunshine) via Spoonflower, in Better Homes & Gardens May Issue. Pretty spiffy.


I promise I’ll only use my fame for good.


My Review

5 Jan

first solid shampoo and very impressed

By Leigh from Pittsburgh, PA on 1/5/2014


5out of 5

Pros: Cleans Effectively, Moisturizes, Good Value, Easy To Use, Pleasant Smell, Gentle, Perfect for travel

Best Uses: Showers, Travel, Daily Use

This is the first solid shampoo I’ve ever tried. I’ve got natural blonde wavy hair that falls between the top and middle of my back. I only mention the color because my hair has a tendency to look oily very easily due to being light in color.

I love the Zero Shampoo bar. I’ve used it every day this week along with the Zero solid conditioner and my hair has been behaving extremely well. The bar lathers well and leaves my hair feeling very clean – with no residue, which was my fear with solid shampoo. The (amazing) smell lasts for a good while without being overwhelming.

I’d definitely recommed any of these solid shampoos to anyone looking to try out something different.

8 Jan


This was the request that sparked the stuffed animals for the older kids. I’d been asking them since October if they wanted stuffed animals for Christmas and wasn’t really getting the impression that they did. Then, two weeks before Christmas, my ten year old niece walks up to me and says, “I want bacon for Christmas.”
