Mom’s Love Rub
Jan Nellis’ creamy soaps, scrubs, and candles are simply glorious. I have used the peppermint soap and cannot rave enough about it. Made with goat’s milk and a light mint fragrance, this soap is creamy and moisturizing. I love, love the scent. It is not strong, and smells good enough to eat! There is also a line of massage candles, a Dead Sea Salt Foot Scrub, and a variety of scrumptious soaps. Jan’s signature Mom’s Love Rub lotion is made with no preservatives and includes aloe vera, shea butter, and honey (from bees she raises!). It is good for dry skin, bug bites, stings, and even sunburns.
I appreciate Jan’s dedication to all-natural products and high standards. Along with her husband and five children, Jan leads a self-sustaining lifestyle. She also has a great book on dehydrating called Delicious, Delectable, and Dehydrated.

Pouchee Purse Organizer
Have you heard of this? Let me share!
Pouchee Purse Organizer is a purse insert that holds all the most important things such as makeup, cards, checkbooks, money, and a pen. It even has three slots that can be used to house a cell phone, small camera, and iPod. The best part…when it is time to change out purses, it is as quick as putting Pouchee in the new one!
Now where was this nifty invention when I was carrying a diaper bag? Perfect for all you Mommies who like to consolidate and carry your important things in a diaper bag when out with the kiddos. When it’s time to carry your purse, it is as simple as putting Pouchee in and you’re set! Here’s a video showing how Pouchee organizes everything:
Last summer the Pouchee company sent me a cotton Pouchee in khaki to try out. I have used it ever since! It is available in a variety of colors and in leather. In fact, for Christmas I gave my mother and mother-in-love both Pouchee’s in leather. To make it a bit more fun, I filled their Pouchee with some extras such as a pack of Kleenex, a card, mints, new pen, hand sanitizer and a gift card.
