The Marula Tree Soap Co. makes natural handmade soap from glycerin bases with additives such as Goat's Milk, Shea Butter, Honey and Marula Oil. Marula Oil is a unique oil pressed from the kernels of the Marula Trees in southern Africa. To learn more about the benefits of Marula Oil click here.

I'm home now from an amazing week in Punta Cana celebrating the wedding of my two good friends Samantha and Josh. It was absolutely beautiful, as you can see for yourself:

Sam looked stunning and could not have had a better backdrop (can you believe that's real?) for her amazing wedding photos.

Somehow I managed to take only 20 photos from the whole trip as everyone had cameras out, but I will share a few:

Our beautiful beach!

Matt and I at the Mexican a la carte.

Snorkeling with sharks and sting rays during our unreal catamaran day trip!



Cutest puppy in the world running around the beach markets, I could have taken him home!

And lastly, another beach shot.

It was a great trip spent with some of the most special people in my life and we all made some great memories to last a lifetime! Cheers to the happy couple!

“I’d always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed.  I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live - that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life.”
-Dan Millman

Goals for 2012:
  1. Upgrade my final Math Course to meet post secondary requirements
  2. Decide what it is I'm going to go to post secondary for
  3. Budget and plan for a large trip in 2013
2012 is going to be a "planning and preparing" year for me. With 2 destination weddings in the forecast, we won't be travelling abroad this year so I need to put my head down and work hard to put money in the bank for next year. I also need to get my education figured out, and start taking steps in the right direction in regards to my future career.

As for my business, my goals are to create more awareness of my products and Marula Oil, have more of a presence on Etsy, and double my sales from 2011.

They say if you write down your goals you are more likely to see them through, so here they are! :)

Brand New Product!

Brand new product for 2012:

Roll On Perfume!

The scents left to right are Sugar Champagne, Love Spell, Bacon and Energy. They come in a .33 oz glass bottle with roll ball applicator and a silver screw on lid. These 4 scents are now available in my shop, and the possibilities are endless so there will definitely be more to come!

Hope everyone had a great new year and is working hard on their resolutions, I know I am! (But more on that later)
