Disney Basin - What a disappointment

I have never been to a "soap" store since I worked at the Body Shop back around 1990. so I was dying to see a Lush or a Basin. We bought some soaps for R and D of course, and it was not very good. First of all 100g for $6. To be fair it was pretty and smelled nice but very little quality stuff. The glycerin soap is cut very thin and my kids said that it fell apart after one bath. My soaps are all natural and about 350 grams for $8. They do focus on bath bombs like Lush.

What's new in my soap world.

Well our soaps are now available in the world Famous Atlantis Hotel! Yes you read right.If you are ever there, we are in the Royal Towers Signature Store.

Back again!

They are no me, but they are cute!

Max gets the school spirit award, next is Prime Minister of the Bahamas

It was a tough year and we made it!
Congrats Whit

All I wanted was 1 pic before trick or treating. Could they look a little less annoyed?

Winter Wonderland

I lived in Minnesota for 9 years , so I know cold. Sitting here in the Bahamas, I am listening to the US weather reports and I feel your pain.

I decided to spent New Years at the beach in honor of you who are having the worst winter. There were not many Bahamians out there because 85 degree is not beach weather for us.



This was the school Xmas play this year. It was great !!!!
It also taught the kids about recycling and conserving energy.
I did not even mention the music. They got an awesome music teacher this year and all I have to say is that you have not lived until you hear a kazu and boomwacker orchestra playing classical music.

And the winner is...........
Well not me but I did get honorable mention.
I had paid for 2 tables but they ran short so I had to redesign at the last minute.
