With Valentine’s Day less than three weeks away, love is in the air! This year, in addition to celebrating the loves of your life, how about letting the day serve as a reminder that YOU need a little TLC, too? You deserve it! 
That’s why I’m so excited Andrea Badgley of Sacred Suds is our featured “beauty artist” this week. She creates the most amazing soaps – I wish you all had scratch-and-sniff screens to experience the calming aromas these create! Andrea considers each bar of natural soap she makes to be an aromatic meditation tool – “soulful soaps that help channel positive energies,” she says. As she crafts each soap, Andrea is mindful about infusing it with positive vibes and spiritual subtleties – like special scents, colors, even guidance from a spiritual guide such as Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty. Be sure to check out her Sacred Suds shop. You can also follow her on Twitter and “like” Sacred Suds on Facebook. Show her some love!
WIN IT! To help you treat yourself like the goddess you are, Andrea is giving one lucky winner her gift-wrapped Valentine’s Soap gift set. It includes one bar of Aphrodite soap (scented with Amber, Rose and Ylang Ylang), one bar of Astarte soap (a spiced milk + honey bar with scents including cinnamon and clove), one bar of Fire soap (a red hot cinnamon spiced soap) and a handcrafted wooden soap dish. Here’s how to enter:
