Mini Haul From Basin: Like Buying Shampoo In A Barrel

Are we done talking about my May WDW trip? Certainly not! For example, I promised you a detailed look at Basin in Disney Springs. I know. It’s been weighing on your mind. I get it. To make it up to you, I’ve included a photo of myself in the shower in this post. You’re welcome! WHAT’S BASIN, ANYWAY? You know the store Lush, that has handmade soaps and cosmetics? It’s kinda like that, only cheaper and minus the cosmetics. (I think. I know they do lip balms but I believe that’s it?) They have hand-cut bath soaps in fun...

In Which Jenn Reviews Cruelty-Free Products

I alluded to this in my last round of random product reviews, but to make it official: a couple years ago I went strictly cruelty-free when it comes to makeup. Medical testing, in my opinion, is a separate ethical debate, but I see absolutely no reason why we should make animals suffer purely for the purposes making select portions of my face a different color. I just don’t need it. Mind you, I do sometimes want it, and luckily there are plenty of cruelty-free companies out there who can help me out. My personal code is that if a company is cruelty-free but its...

Since you’re reading this, my blog, presumably of your own free will and with at least a passing interest in my inner workings, allow me to present: a bunch of opinions.  A couple notes. First, the below items are included because I feel that a mini-review might be of some assistance to like-minded folk. I am not going into any great depth, but if you’d like a more exhaustive report, leave a comment and I’ll either expand the topic...

The Fairest Giveaway Of All: Soapbox Soaps Shower Products

Whew! It’s been quite a weekend here at FRoA headquarters. My interns* and I have been snowed in since Friday. Today I am finally free of my cold wet confines, which is a cause for celebration, yes? I give you: giveaway week, so named because I have TWO giveaways for you. * Cats. They’re my cats. We’ll start with the one I teased way back when: Soapbox Soaps. I received their coconut conditioner in an Influenster Vox Box last month I fell completely in love with the product. I have tricky hair – it’s VERY long, but it’s fine,...

In Which Jenn Laments A Sudsy Disney Injustice

I have stayed at Disney’s value resorts many, many times. I have stayed in a moderate and a deluxe resort once each. Naturally the former have a great many amenities to recommend themselves over the cheap option, but since I’m not a high-powered executive I tend to stay at good ol’ Pop Century anyway. For the most part, I don’t miss much – sure, the nicer rooms, more impressive lobbies, and more extensive food choices are nice, but I’m mostly in the room to sleep. Who cares? And yet there is one thing Disney skimps on at value resorts...
