#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Burts Bees Baby Bee Soap Bag
Oh I so wish I had smellyvision! If you haven’t come across the Baby Bee range from Burts Bees, get yourself down to Boots asap. I love it! I’m not sure which stores you’d buy it from overseas, though I know you can buy it from Amazon UK and in sampler sizes too. But it’s just divine.
When I was pregnant with Jack, my now 15 year old, I was a member of MakeupAlley which was a makeup review website and a place to swap makeup and skincare products with other people. I loved to swap with overseas folk, and one of the biggest things about the swapping was that you’d have an official swap of one product for another, but that you’d load up the parcel with little ‘extras’. It could be sweeties unique to your country, or perhaps a product sampler. Well I discovered Burts Bees because an American girl sent me a whole load of treats for the new baby. And I’ve never looked back since!
Anyway, that aside, despite the fact that my boys are now rapidly growing up, with Oliver now being 7 and the youngest, I’m still a huge fan of the Baby Bee range as well as the full ‘grown up’ stuff. And I will invariably have many products dotted around my house – lemon butter cuticle cream, lip balms (yes, I even have one on my computer desk too!) and bathing treats.
I recently bought myself a new Baby Bee soap, but before I could use it, I wanted to show it to you all and get it onto a video.
Aren’t I good to you? Selflessly sharing a video in such a manner with the wonderful excuse to shop for me….!
Anyway, I love the soap, adore the bag that I’ve designed for it. You’ll see in the video that I’ve made it deliberately a little bigger than the soap box itself. Mostly for versatility for you if you don’t want to put this soap inside, but also so that you get a lovely smooth close.
And when you’re making a baby gift bag, using the A Little Wild stamp set is just spot on!
I went with the adorable Elephant on my sample but swapped it for the Honey Bear on this one! Too cute!
Have a great day, and go shopping for Burts Bees. You won’t regret it…!
