In a case of very effective visual marketing, this tiny display of Lovery Pink Rose bath and body products virtually jumped out at me from the confines of their booth at the recent NY Now gift show, and I knew I had to run over and grab this photo for a PinkThing! This completist collection of indulgent personal products — packaged in in Bubblegum Pink tub — includes luxury bottles with gold pumps, a 100% quartz guasha stone, elegant essential oil diffuser with reed sticks, and a glitter cosmetic bag. Rad! Even better; it’s currently on sale at over 50% off, just in time for Valentines Day! Purchasing information can be found Here.
Did you ever see the movie Fight Club? It is pretty good, if a bit disturbing, and is sometimes known in popular culture for the bars of Fight Club Soap that were given out to journalists and probably also movie theater owners as a promotional item when the film was first released. While soap-making is a sub-plot thread within the film (don’t ask) these bars of soap do not actually appear in the movie. In short order, however, sellers of novelty items started making Fight Club soap that you could actually buy, and now you can find these bars all over with a variety of sayings on them. Because that is how it works.
When the trend of Birthday Cake-Flavored foods and snacks emerged a few years ago, I was all in, and still am. So, you know I got super excited when I was introduced to a Birthday Cake Scented Soap during my recent visit to the White Label Expo. OMG.
Have you ever see a bar of soap as cute as this Frida Kahlo Cannabis Rose Artisan Soap Bar by Aura Artisan Soap? I can’t say that I have. I met owner and soap creator Aura de Leon recently at the White Label Expo, and she was so happy that I recognized Frida’s unique unibrow, which she has captured in her handcrafted soap that is a tribute to the legendary Mexican artist.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you might recall that I recently attended an art event at the National Museum of Mathematics (aka MoMath). On the way out of the museum that evening, I decided to pop in to the gift shop, where I noticed something at first seems a bit incongruous: a tiny Pink Bathtub . . . that was in use as a bin to hold little soaps shaped like the Pi symbol. Oh, the cleverness.
