Stinky Dancer Soap

So I had came across this small soap company so I bought a bar and as soon as I used it I was HOOKED! After using it for 2 days I had to place a second order (even my husband likes this soap). Your skin doesn't feel all stiff and dry after using these bars unlike many store bought ones. I have tried a few homemade soaps but these are by far my favorite...So I wanted to share this with you guys! This is what my order consisted of

Electric Watermelon- Not only does this soap smell awesome it is also cute. 
It even has little poppy seeds to look like watermelon seeds. This soap smells just like watermelon hard candy...YUM!

Amber Romance- This is a dupe of a popular VS scent and smells exactly as it should. It's a light sensual smell. This one I have to keep away from my sister in law lol :)

Brown Sugar & Fig- This one smells awesome its ever so slightly sweet and creamy. I don't much smell the brown sugar but it's pleasant regardless.

Laveder Martini-  I had no idea what this would smell like and even smelling it it's hard to explain. It's almost a clean scent (but not) with a citrus undertone. It is a unique scent but it a good way!!!

Sweet Innocence- Yet another one that is pretty to look at (they all are just the two stood out most)
 This one smells just like a baby smells so clean and powdery. It makes me remember my boys being little babies and makes me smile :)

French Lavender- Straight Lavender scent...floral and clean!!!

Bedtime Bath- If you have kids you know what the bedtime bath scent is. Another one that reminds me of when my kids where little babies but this one is my favorite of the bunch. It is such a amazing smell of  lavender and powder. 

If you have yet  to try handmade  soaps I highly recommend it. I am in love with this company :)

Aunt Smellman

Oh how I love wax and trying new (to me) vendors. The owner over at Aunt Smellmans was kind enough to send me an R.A.O.K ( Random Act Of Kindness) so the very least I could do is let y'all know about her stuff!!! Now I have no idea what these are supposed to smell like ( I don't look at scent descriptions so that my opinion is totally unbiased) This is what I got...

Pouty Pucker- This smells almost like those little dum dum suckers. It is a sweet scent (without being overly sweet) with some light hints of  maybe vanilla.

Tooth Fairy- This is a straight up sweet candy scent with a light citrus background. I prefer this one over Pouty Pucker which to my nose is kinda of similar.

Frost Bit- Crisp and Minty...That is the best way I can describe this scent. I am not the biggest mint fan so this one found a home with my Mama who loves it :)

False Eyelashes-This scent confuses my nose. I can't really pinpoint what I am smelling...It almost smells like cucumber melon with flowers and a tiny bit of mint thrown in. It is unlike anything I have ever smelled but it I like it!

The Keys- This smells like a eating pie on the beach lol. It's a tropical citrus smell with a VERY light bakery type scent. This one is my second favorite of the bunch!

Fountain Of Youth- OMG this scent is AMAZING and my favorite of all of them(even the hubby likes it). It it a very clean scent with very light hints of sweet and floral...If this was a perfume I would without a doubt wear it!!!

Orange Blossom- I expected this one to be  real sweet and orangey but it wasn't. It smells what I would imagine the actual tree to smell like...It is a green smell with very light floral and sweetness to it. I am curious as to how this is going to smell on warm.

Raspberry Macaroon- When I seen this one I was like nooooo because me and raspberry don't mix (the scent makes me nauseous) but this scent is yummy! It has more of a toasted coconut scent than anything with light berryness. After smelling this I really wanted to eat some Macaroons lol :)

Kim's Watermelon Honey- This one smells like straight up watermelon Jolly Ranchers with a twist. My 3 year old thought it was candy and kept asking if he could eat it. If you like sweet scent you'll  want to try this one.

Not only does this wax smell great it has (imo) the perfect texture and I can't wait to start melting it *shakes fist at cure time*. You can find her facebook page here as well as her website here . If you happen to fan her page or order make sure to let her know Binky sent you!

Taco Seasoning

I used to be one of those "I'll just buy the packet" of taco seasoning people until  I made my own for the first time and it was sooo amazing  ( in my opinion) I will NEVER go back to buying those packets again. After posting about making it on my personal Facebook page several people had asked me how I made mine and they enjoyed it so now I have more people asking for it...So it figured I would just post it here for everyone who may want to give it a try!

Taco Seasoning-
1/4 Tsp. Garlic Powder ( NOT garlic salt)
1/4 Tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 Tsp. Dried Oregano (Preferably the "mexican" kind but the normal stuff works just fine )
1/2 Tsp. Paprika
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1-1 1/2 Tsp. Cumin
1/2 Tsp. Sea Salt
1 Tsp. Black Pepper
1/8 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

2 1/2 Tbsp. is equal to one packet of seasoning and works for 1-1 1/2 lbs (depends how much seasoning you like) of  meat.
