Calla Lily Soap Favors

One of my friends is getting married in August and she and her mother asked me to come up with some calla lily soap favors.  So I used my imagination to come up with some very unique soap favors for her to choose from.  And now we're enlisting your help to tell us which one you like the best!

Once, Twice, Three Times the Fun!

This past Memorial Day weekend was a very much needed break! A break away from all the hustle and bustle of my life and my business and a chance to do absolutely nothing Serah’s related (well, except writing this blog post). My weekend getaway destination was Pasadena, CA. I’m always in Los Angeles but had yet to check out Pasadena and while I was there, I discovered that the corner of West Union St and North Fair Oaks Ave had three different temptations that put me back in the business mindset but still in a fun way. And I fell for all three temptations and loved it!

My first stop was The Container Store which is now one of my favorite places to buy all things for organization. I’m like a kid in a candy store at The Container Store.

My second stop was at The Soap Kitchen to check out a fellow soaper. I loved the natural look and feel to her packaging.

Last but not least, Dots Cupcakes!

They have large and mini cupcakes just like me! I purchased several different flavors of the mini cupcakes so that I could try all the different kinds before first picking a favorite. And I have to say that the Vanilla cupcake from Dots was my favorite!

And since vanilla has been a most requested fragrance for my soap cupcakes, there will be a vanilla scented cupcake soap coming to Serah’s soon.

I’d love to hear what you did this weekend. Share your Memorial Day adventure or lack there of with me in the comments.

Happy Memorial Day!

Unique Los Angeles 2009 Recap

I was extra prepared for Unique Los Angeles. This was my first year at Unique LA and after seeing the booth photos of Rock Scissor Paper from last year, I was inspired to kick it up a notch for my booth display. And wouldn't you believe it, when I arrived at Unique LA, I was right across from Rock Scissor Paper!

Serah's Booth Display - Unique Los Angeles

The only other thing I wanted to complete my booth was a floor covering but overall I was happy with how it turned out. I even splurged on a few extra things to give my booth those extra touches I wanted to. I bought a cake stand, a bubble machine, and used my banner.

As a very extra special treat, a friend of mine made the most awesome complement to my booth that one can imagine – a diorama!

Cupcake Soap Diorama

Isn’t this the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen!?! Other than my cupcake soaps, this was my favorite thing in the whole booth and everyone who visited my booth noticed it as well!

I met a lot of cool people and even had repeat customers! One of my customers wrote a very interesting blog post that I will share with you all in future post. With every show I do, there are always moments that I will never forget. There was a little girl about two years of age who came to visit my booth with her dad and he bought a mini cupcake soap for her. About a hour later, I saw the same mini cupcake soap gliding by my booth in a little hand. Then I noticed that it was the bright-eyed little girl holding the mini cupcake soap in her hand as her mother pushed her past my booth in the stroller. I smiled and giggled because it was the cutest thing I’d ever seen. She was the cutest mobile advertising I’ve ever had! Her mother exclaimed, “She just loves her cupcake soap!”

Later, a lady came by with 4 little girls and a baby. As we were talking, she informed me that one of the little girls had $5 to spend at the show because she won the Good Girl of the Week prize. The little girl loved the Mini Mint Chocolate Cupcake Soap but she said that she wanted to visit all of the vendors first before she made her decision. And can you imagine my surprise, when she came back to my booth to spend her $5. We had over 275 vendors so I was SO honored!

I love selling my cupcake soaps and it’s moments like that which makes what I do even more rewarding.

Last but not least, I had to stop by the Oh Snap photo booth!
