January Wrap Up

I can’t believe how fast January flew by! I didn’t realize it was February until this morning, when I when I went to write the date and saw that it was no longer a 1 for the month, but a 2. This month I read seven books, which is pretty impressive (if I may say so myself)considering everything else I have going on.


I ran a giveaway this month with The MacBath, a wonderful literary soap store on Etsy (I totally think you should check them out if you haven’t already.. their products are amazing!!).

I do have a couple exciting giveaway’s coming up this month as well, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

What books did you read in January?

Giveaway!! The MacBath Literary Collection

Hi guys! So today I have a pretty awesome giveaway for you: Literary goat milk soaps from The MacBath!! How cool is that? I saw them and I literally just fell in love (and you will too… just wait). Rachel (the amazing woman behind the store) sent me some soaps and lotion to try out, and you will have the chance to win some too!


So here is what I was sent. I got Gryffindor soap (because I’m a Gryffindor, obviously. No, but seriously I have taken the pottermore quiz a million times and I always get Gryffindor), I got a Sherlock Holmes soap (because I have been obsessed with Sherlock lately, and he is only the most awesome detective in the universe…. sorry Nancy Drew), and I got the Prefects bathroom lotion. Needless to say (although I’m going to say it anyway) I was thrilled when I opened the package. Everything is so cute and IT SMELLED AMAZING. Like seriously I just sat there sniffing it for 10 minutes. And then I took each thing out and sniffed some more. Don’t judge, you’d probably do it too.

The first thing I noticed when I picked up the Gryffindor soap was the bag, cause ya know, it’s in the bag. The bag feels like a good solid fabric, and I know I’m going to keep it around to fill with stuff when the soap is gone. And also the writing on it is beautiful (both the font and the words).

You might belong in Gryffindor
Where dwell the brave of heart.
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry,
Set Gryffindors apart.

The soap itself is also insanely beautiful, and has the Gryffindor insignia carved in it and filled with glitter. And the smell. Oh my gosh (and yes, I’m pretty sure half of this post is going to be me telling you how much I love the smell). It is called “spicy pepperberry” and I don’t really know how else to explain it except that is one of the most marvelous things I’ve ever smelled.

Here’s a little slide show of the Gryffindor soap:

Next is the Sherlock Holmes soap. The bag is just as beautiful and has one of the best Sherlock quotes on it:

Watson, come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same.

Ahh, that quote gets me every time. The soap has the second half of that quote written on it. The soaps smell is rosewood and vanilla. It’s smell is not as strong as the other one, but just as amazing. It is now a smell I’m going to forever associate with anything Sherlock Holmes and I am 110% happy with that! Here’s a little slideshow of that soap:

The lotion is also super amazing. Its thick and actually feels like it is moisturizing your skin. It’s blackberry and sage scented which is the actual heaven of lotions. Also the bottle is super cute (which I have to point out because I am a lover of all things cute). Here’s a picture of the lotion:


So now you beautiful people have the chance to win a soap or lotion of your choice! I promise you won’t be disappointed. And, just incase you don’t win, Rachel clued me in that all of the Christmas products (which I’m sure are just as amazing at any time of the year) are 50% off if you use the promo code 50OFF at check out!
