cranberry body lotion

aBandon, my newest cranberry scent

New for the season, is my latest scent, aBandon, a sweetened cranberry. I’m making it into everything, including shaving soap. I particularly like it as a room spray.

And, in other news…

The new home for this year’s Holiday Festival of the Arts is…

1825 Cornwall Avenue at Ohio Street

This is the building kitty-corner to Bellingham High School and used to be a bingo hall, Sunshine Liquidators, and, most recently, Mayberry’s Sporting Goods.

Bonus: latte stand in the parking lot!

Made from champagne, blood orange, chocolate and strawberry, my newest scent: Cocomosa

I’m delighted to announce my newest scent: Cocomosa. Think Mimosas and add chocolate. It’s perfect for those cold days; warms you from your inner scent glands, out. I find myself reaching for it everyday after my shower. It’s the 18th scent in the Realms Bath & Body Line. Please don’t tell me to stop!

pink carnation

In honor of moms everywhere, I bring you Dianamour, my newest scent. It is a very realistic carnation, that brings me back to when I was a little girl walking to school and passed by my neighbor’s carnation bush. I would walk slower, drinking in its intoxicating scent.

From the scientific name Dianthus, it roughly translates to flower of love or flower of the gods, depending on the source.  The carnation’s history dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. The pink carnation in particular symbolizes a mother’s undying love.

So… new?

May 5, 2010

In my family, noone ever said, “So, what’s new?” It was always abbreviated to “so… new?” which made it sound even more Yiddish. ‘Course, it was usually uttered by one of my family members from my Dad’s side, who grew up in Brooklyn. And even though they all moved to California, they never could quite shake the accent.

So… here’s new: I’m slowly making all new Realms stock for the summer season. I found out I just got accepted to the Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival again this year (yessss). Once I get all the products made in all scents, I’m going to build a light box and shoot all the products (lock-down shot) in anticipation of building a very small e-commerce website. This is slow going so it may be awhile.

I also have a new scent: Wai’oli — lime and verbena with a hint of coconut. It’s light and energizing. I find I’m reaching for it whenever I get into the shower lately (a big cue to me it’s a keeper). And I’m so trying to get that lime in the coconut song out of my head.
