I turn 39 today 🙂 There’s a pandemic going on so this is definitely a cause for celebration—a socially-responsible celebration, of course!

To celebrate my birthday, I’m giving away this set of fun prizes!


Aren’t they the prettiest? ❤️

  • One (1) Book-themed handmade soap (My Fate According to the Butterfly)

Prizes cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash or substituted by winner. Click here for the Terms and Conditions!

*** IMPORTANT: Please note that there may be unforeseen delays on shipping due to pandemic restrictions. ***

About the Handmade Soaps

I just loooooovvvvve these handmade soaps so much! I had them especially made to match my book covers, and the duck-themed one was inspired by Quackie (my sweet cutie Pekin duck) and my website color scheme. I call the Quackie-inspired soap, “Quackumber,” a combination of Quackie’s name and cucumber. Why cucumber? Well, Quackie loves sliced cucumbers! 🥒 The Quackumber soap has a citrus and cucumber scent.

I call the soap inspired by My Fate According to the Butterfly, “Black Butterfly.” Because, duh, it’s about the superstition of the black butterfly. Black Butterfly has a lavender and mint scent, which I feel captures my main character Sab perfectly! 🦋

“Magic Yema” is what I call the Sugar And Spite soap. The book’s not out yet (it’s coming out on April 20, 2021), but I think it’s safe to say that Jolina will infuse gayuma on yema candies to give to her bully as a form of revenge. Yema is essentially a milk candy, so Magic Yema has a vanilla and goat milk scent. 🍬
