A giveaway with a little bit of virtue......

I apologize for the lack of blog posts lately.  All I can say is that I suck.  Summer has been.... well, summer.  Crazy busy!  After getting hit with a load of non-paying buyers in a row, I lost a little bit of interest in my shop and blog.  I'm also busy running my treasury project and have picked up my treasury team's blog.  However, I'm just taking a deep breath and letting the inspiration flow in.  What you have to look forward to:  I will soon be doing a guest blog at blueheart, and I'm considering opening another shop to separate and expand my paper line. 

But for now.... let's do a feature and a giveaway!  Today I'm featuring virtuebathandbeauty.


Jessica is graciously offering up $20 to spend only in her shop.  Which  means you can buy me about 3 of these Cocoa Commitment Bath Bombs.  Did I say "me"? I mean "yourself"!  Keep reading to find out how to win (trust me, it will be easy peasy).

Ashli:  What brought you to Etsy?
Jessica:  I have a friend who is actually a photographer and she bought a lot of her props on Etsy. I decided to check it out and instantly fell in love. The community was amazing and I was obsessed with searching for vintage items and I thought it would make a great home for my shop.

Ashli:  Who or what is your current muse?
Jessica:  I don't know that I have a specific muse, it changes a lot. But i've always had sort of an ideal woman in my head. The person I try to create for. She's timid, but not afraid to be bold. She loves vintage items, but she's always looking towards the future. She's the woman I try to be.



Ashli:  What are your Etsy goals?
Jessica:  I really want to be able to just live off of my etsy sales. I want to be an iconic etsy seller, like those I look up to. But most of all I want to give my buyers the best, most pleasant experience possible!

Ashli:  Favorite thing in your shop?
Jessica:  I love all of my bath bombs! But I especially love the peppermint. I am super hot natured so it gives me sort of a little bit of winter in this hot georgia weather. I do have a lot of exciting things coming though that may turn out to be my favorite. *cough* bath cookies *cough*. I love my eyeshadows too though, I have loads of makeup artist friends that have put away their MAC and only use my shadows now. That makes me so happy.



Ashli:  Describe what you would want your last meal on earth to consist of.
Jessica:  Oh lord, do you have a while for this question? I am definitely a foodie and I love to make bath products that remind me of food. If I had to pick, I would say a good old southern meal my granny always makes me for my birthday. Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, sweet tea and green beans. Although, I think it wouldn't be the same without my family's company. I just love them!
