Prepping For Travel


Mr. Wonderful & I are heading off to spend a 
few weeks in Spain later this month and I'm 
starting to prep for the trip.  I have been seeing
these natural soaps and solid perfumes on Pinterest
for a long time but I never got around to ordering.
Today they arrived and it was a bright spot in a
cold and snowy day.  I always buy new soaps when
I'm on vacation and I enjoy going to the local 
markets in search of them but I couldn't resist
ordering a few fruity bars.  Mainly, I was looking
for natural, solid perfumes, they are just so much
easier to travel with.  They weigh next to nothing
and the containers are plastic or tin so there is less
chance of breakage.  I bought an orange perfume 
and soap becasue the destination is Spain.  Every
time I peel a clementine, I hold it up to my face so
the oils pop all over and sigh, "Ahhh, it smells like
Spain!".  As soon as the package arrived I had to
open the verbena perfume, it is lovely, it's much
like the L'Occitane Verbena products or the scent 
that comes from brushing against the lemon
verbena plants in my garden.  
Now to get my gear together, grab my passport
and euros and throw some clothes in a suitcase
and I'm ready to go!
