Local Mae’s Soap & Lilla Rose Giveaway!

It’s that sweet time of the year when I love filling my shopping bag with local produce and supporting local farmers/crafters! I am pleased to support a local (to me) Washington mama with a giveaway today!

Independent Consultant Mae Raymond is sponsoring a giveaway of the beautiful Lilla Rose Flexi Clips and her own natural, homemade soaps.

The Flexi Clip is the only hair accessory that I’ve found to stay in my hair all day long. (I’ve been wearing them almost daily for about the past year or so.) Thankfully, it does, because my days are crazy-full right now with running our Bed & Breakfast during the busy summer season. We’re up early, cooking for guests, and I have to keep my hair up.

Seriously, every morning at 6 or 7 am, I’ll nurse the baby (as I’ve been doing for much of the night), pop a Flexi Clip in my hair when I get dressed for the day, and head down to the kitchen. (Since I’m wearing my work attire, it’s also nice to have a pretty clip that dresses up my “mama ponytail” these days.)

Throughout the day, I’m making coffee for guests, cooking, cleaning guest rooms & laundry, plus homeschooling and parenting my little ones. I finally let my hair down around 10 or 11 pm; yes, the clip stays in that long!

I have both the medium and small clips. The small one is great most of the time for a low ponytail or half twist. The medium is perfect during pregnancy when my hair gets thicker, and for updos like a French Twist. (Size needs vary depending on your own hair type, though. Check out Mae’s sizing & styling tips.)

Since I’m in that annoying postpartum hair phase right now, where I’m losing some of the extra, it’s nice to have both clips handy, to keep from having frustrating “bad hair” days.

Because the mornings are crazy (and my baby is a joyful “early bird!”), I’ve been taking advantage of the evening hours for a quick shower using Mae’s Soaps:

Mae’s Handcrafted Natural Soaps are made in small batches to ensure the highest quality. Tallow is used for the hardness & gentleness it imparts to the bar, making your bars long-lasting and gentle to your skin. I include olive oil for additional gentleness and a bit of coconut oil for bit of fluffy lather. Mae’s soap formula produces a soap which is very gentle, not drying, and which has a great long-lasting lather.

Mae’s soap does not become mushy as do all vegetable-oil-based soaps. Using a scrubby in the shower produces an ultra rich lather. Only high quality soap scents or essential oils are used, and even then they are added with a light hand. My aim is for a scent you can enjoy in the shower but which will not become obtrusive during the day. All my coloring agents are of a natural origin.

My husband has appreciated some of her more “masculine scents” such as the Christmas Forest and the Frankincense & Myrrh. He also used the Black Amber & Lavender Bar to make a batch of homemade liquid hand soap.

When my industrious (busy!) 5-year-old decided to “clean” the shower with Daddy’s soap, we thankfully managed to salvage some of it, since they really are long-lasting, and not too mushy.

Mae is offering the following package to two winners: 1 Flexi Clip ($16 value) plus 4 (4 oz) Soap Bars (your choice from soaps in stock; $20 value)!

    I’m in my third trimester and with the heat I always have my hair up but my husband would really like something else once in a while! So I’m thinking a flexi-clip would be such a great idea…and I love great, natural soaps so much, I just have not been able to get around to making my own and Mae’s Soaps look something amazing!

    I am very interested in trying the hair clips. I have really long hair and I would like to see how they work in my hair. Also, I love a good bar of natural soap. I’m trying to transition the whole family. Good luck to all who enter!

  • I think my girls would love the clips (I have a teeny, weeny afro so they wouldn’t be for me!) and I would love the soaps. I’m all about supporting small businesses and natural products.

    I am letting my hair grow longer and always leave it down and plain – I’m looking for a way to jazz my hair up! I would love to try the soap because of the tallow. I am hearing how wonderful tallow is for the skin and would love to see how it works!

    I don’t ever “style” my hair so I think the flexi clips would be a perfect upgrade. And you can never have too much handmade soap!

  • I have a flexi-clip and I use it all the time! Especially for these hot summer days. They are the only thing that I have found to hold up my long thick hair so well. I would love to try another size. I also love handmade soap and I usually keep some on my kitchen sink for handwashing. It would be great to try this brand!

    To further clarify…I’ve got a 4 year old, 2 year old and 8 month old and anything that makes my hair look good and takes only seconds to put in would be really helpful in our busy home!

    I would love to try a Lila Rose clip. My hair is getting very long, and pretty way to secure it up would be great. And who can pass up a chance to try homemade soaps? Not me!

    I have a flexi clip but I recently cut my hair so it would be nice to have a new one to use in my hair. I have been trying out more natural soaps so it would be great to try a new one.
