Weekly Wrap Up (Week of May 14th-May 20th)

I got married!

Well, a LOT has happened since last week. This past Wednesday I got married! It was a super simple affair that took place in around 60 seconds in my living room, but it all also happened rather quickly. Rick, my new husband, was at one point my ex-fiance. But life sometimes pulls you in crazy directions for a reason and within a week we’d made the decision to get married. We mostly told everyone after the event, but we are planning a wedding reception a month or two down the road so friends and family can come celebrate. I’m super stoked though and crazy happy.

Outdoor patio dining furniture from Target! I love this new outdoor dining space!

My marriage came with stepkids who are pretty frickin’ awesome. Thursday Hannah (who’s 11) and Isaac (who’s 13) helped me pull together this awesome outdoor dining space for us to enjoy as a new family. (I bought the entire set at Target.)

Hannah painting a paper mache unicorn with materials from Target!

And today Hannah painted a kick ass paper mache unicorn from Target’s Kid Made Modern line. (There’s also a third, Abbie, who’s currently planning for college, but we only have every other weekend.)

Rose Gold Bar Cart

I also got my hands on a bar cart – finally! – that I’d been lusting after forever. It finally went on sale and once I bought it it promptly sold out. I splurged a little on a set of matching copper martini glasses and rose flowers also from Target and a really nice Prince of Scots Professional Serie Boston Style Cocktail Shaker Set from Amazon. I still have to dig through Pinterest for some ideas on styling a bar cart though. Currently the bottom shelf is completely empty.

Currently I’m crushing on this gorgeous large flower temporary tattoo from Siideways.

Pineapple Mango Unicorn Horn Bath Fizzie from Golden Sapphire Boutique

And these Pineapple Mango Unicorn Horn Bath Fizzies from Golden Sapphire Boutique. (You can also follow Golden Sapphire Boutique on Instagram so you don’t miss out on any of her awesome creations.)

Plus, clean up is so easy! Because this recipe (made as indicated) calls for a non-staining bath bomb colorant, everything will rinse off your tub with ease! (Check out the video to see.)

These fizzing Easter egg bath truffles make a wonderful addition not only to kids’ Easter baskets, but are also great gifts for friends, family and neighbors for spring!

This particular recipe was inspired by my friend, Cathy, who loves Lush’s golden glitter egg bath bombs. While these don’t have quite that much glitter, you can easily increase the amount of both the bath bomb color powder for more color as well as the amount of skin safe glitter for some serious sparkle! Following is my recipe.

Fizzing Easter Egg Bath Truffles Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

8 oz. citric acid
16 oz. baking soda
2 oz. cocoa butter
2 oz. babassu oil
.5 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
1 oz. SLSA
.5 oz. yogurt powder
.15 oz. neon bikini blue powder
.5 oz. skin safe azure blue glitter (or similar)
.5 oz. skin safe twinkling lights glitter (or similar)
.3 oz. essential oil of choice, optional

Instructions:

I used large plastic Easter eggs for my fizzing Easter egg bath truffles. This recipe will yield seven large egg-shaped fizzing bath truffles.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the cocoa butter and babassu oil. Heat at 50% power in the microwave or in a double boiler until melted. If using a fragrance, weigh out the essential oil and stir into the wet ingredients.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

In a separate container, weigh out the baking soda, citric acid, kaolin clay, SLSA and yogurt powder. You will want to wear a mask for this step as the SLSA is an airborne product and it will get into your nose without a mask. Mix the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Now weigh out the neon bikini blue powder and the glitters. (Feel free to mix up your own color combinations! The company I purchased my azure blue glitter from no longer had this product at the time of this post.)

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Mix the color and glitter into the dry ingredients until they are all a uniform blue color.

Now combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix well.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

You’re now ready to make mold your fizzing Easter egg bath truffles. Pile the mixture into one half of a plastic egg.

Repeat with the other half of the egg.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Now mash the two sides of the plastic egg tightly together.

If your plastic eggs are a flimsy rather than rigid plastic, take care not to press either of the halves on top of the other. Otherwise your fizzing Easter egg bath truffles will be difficult to remove from the plastic egg mold.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Repeat this process until you’ve molded all seven fizzing Easter egg bath truffles.

Set the molded bath truffles aside for an hour or two in a location where they won’t be disturbed. Then carefully unmold each fizzing Easter egg bath truffle and wrap or packaged as desired for gifting.

To use these fizzing Easter egg bath truffles, simply add to warm running bath water and enjoy!

If you plan to sell your fizzing Easter egg bath truffles, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

It is important to note that, as this product contains SLSA, it is considered a foaming detergent bath product. As such labeling requires an additional caution to be printed on the label unless it states that the product is for adult use only. This is in addition to the ingredient list and directions for use and other information required for cosmetic labeling.

You can find the requirements for cosmetic labeling regulations regarding this product on the FDA website here.

These DIY poop emoji bubble bars are sure to make bath time a little more interesting! Inspired by the pile of poo emoji, this bubble bar mimics the brown soft-serve ice cream shaped icon with a smile.

I created my own bubble bar recipe from scratch for these DIY poop emoji bubble bars and used unsweetened cocoa powder for the poop color. I then scented it with a prosecco cupcake fragrance oil that blended nicely with the natural scent of cocoa butter once heated with warm bath water. It took me a while to find the right consistency to get these to roll out and sit up without sinking, but the final version of my recipe yields a bubble bar dough that’s easy to mold and shape.

Poop Emoji Bubble Bars Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1 oz. vegetable glycerin
.5 oz. unrefined cocoa butter
3 oz. ultra refined high melt point shea butter
.3 oz. emulsifying wax
.25 oz. xanthan gum powder
4 oz. baking soda
2 oz. citric acid
5 oz. SLSA
.75 oz. unsweetened cocoa powder
.5 oz. cream of tartar
.1 oz. castor oil
.2 oz. aloe vera oil
.2 oz. Prosecco Cupcake fragrance oil

clear melt and pour soap base
white melt and pour soap base
candy eyes

Instructions:

My poop emoji bubble bars recipe will yield three large bubble bars or six small ones. You will need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients. (I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.)

Learn how to make poop emoji bubble bars with an original bubble bar recipe from Soap Deli News blog! (Click through for the recipe now!)

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or bowl. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted, about 4 minutes.

Now weigh out the xanthan gum powder and whisk into the melted butters and wax until it dissolves.

Next weigh out the SLSA (you may want to wear a mask for this step as the particles can cause coughing when airborne), baking soda, citric acid and cream of tartar into a separate container. Mix well so all ingredients are evenly distributed throughout.

Weigh out the remaining wet ingredients – the glycerin, castor oil, aloe vera oil and the fragrance oil – and stir into your melted butters and wax. (Please note that aloe vera oil is an oil and NOT the same thing as aloe vera gel.)

Now mix your wet and dry ingredients together until they are thoroughly combined to create your bubble bar dough.

Refrigerate the dough for your emoji poop bubble bars for about ten minutes.

Remove the dough from the fridge and place on a silpat non-stick baking silicone mat. This makes a wonderful work surface.

Now divide the bubble bar dough into three balls. (If you wish to make six small emoji poop bubble bars, divide into six balls.)

Roll each ball out into a long log.

Then twist the bubble dough around into a poop like shape starting with a wide base and circling up to a smaller top.

Place your poop emoji bubble bars back in the refrigerator for an additional ten minutes, then remove and apply the eyes and smiles!

To create eyes for your poop emoji bubble bars, melt a small amount of clear melt and pour soap base in a container, then dip each of the backs of your candy eyes into the melted soap. Use the soap to adhere the eyes to your poop emoji bubble bars one at a time.

I found candy eyes in the cake decorating section of the grocery store, however craft stores are likely to have these as well. You can choose from small candy eyes like I used, jumbo candy eyes, candy eyes with eyelashes or Wilton also makes a set of candy eyes with candy mustaches, candy teeth and candy lips.

Learn how to make poop emoji bubble bars with an original bubble bar recipe from Soap Deli News blog! (Click through for the recipe now!)

Now melt a small amount of white melt and pour soap base and pour into a shallow plastic container lid. Don’t pour it too hot as you don’t want the soap to melt the plastic. The goal is to create a thin sheet of melt and pour soap.

Using a knife or scissors cut out the expressions and smiles for your emoji poop bubble bars. (Alternately you can use candy teeth, lips and mustaches.)

Reheat the clear melt and pour soap base and carefully dip the backs of the white soap expressions into the melted base, then adhere the smiles and such to your poop emoji bubble bars as desired.

Ingredients:

4 oz. citric acid
8 oz. baking soda
2 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. dendritic salt
.3 oz. SLSA
.15 oz. lime peel essential oil
1/2 teaspoon jade green crystal mica powder

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale for my fizzing shamrock bath truffles recipe in order to weigh the ingredients. (I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.) You will also need the Wilton 8-Cavity Silicone Shamrock Mold which can be found online and in most craft stores.

Being by weighing out the cocoa butter in either a double boiler or a glass Pyrex container. Heat the cocoa butter in your double boiler or in a heat safe glass container in the microwave at 50% power until melted.

Set aside to cool slightly.

Now weigh out the citric acid, baking soda, dendritic salt, and SLSA and combine in a large glass. (You may want to wear a face mask for this step. Both the SLSA and the citric acid are finer particles that can cause coughing as they are released into the air.)

Combine the dry ingredients with the scented cocoa butter and mix well.

You can now begin filling five of the cavities of your shamrock silicone mold. To do this, I recommend filling one cavity at a time. Loosely add the fizzing bath truffles mix to fill one cavity. Then pile more on top to form a mountain. Next, firmly press the ingredients into the mold cavity. Resist pushing so hard that the cavity bows out on the sides, but enough that the mixture is firmly packed.

Proceed with filling four additional cavities of your shamrock mold.

Once you’ve filled the mold, set the molded fizzing bath bomb truffles aside out of the way in a dry location.

Wait two days, then carefully unmold your fizzing shamrock bath truffles.

My fizzing shamrock bath truffles don’t have the same flair as bath bombs however they do create bubbles and fill your bath with nourishing cocoa butter. These are perfect for people that don’t want super colored bathwater and strong fragrances.

Notes:

Be sure to use your fizzy bath truffles within a few months for best results as citric acid begins to lose it’s potency once exposed to air.

In addition I also received some helpful tips for making bath bombs on one of my instagram posts!

The Bubbling Mermaid suggests when formulating your own bath bombs or bath fizzies for use in a silicone mold that you add kaolin clay for ease of removal. While The Chequered Lily also recommends curing your bath fizzies in a silicone mold for at least 48 hours.
