Now that I'm Back in school..

I've got more time to spend procrastinating (I run out of things to do online because I spend so much time there).

So, do you want to know what time it is? It is REVIEW time! As you may know, one of my favorite Etsy stores, Gudonya closed some time ago. Deb had emailed me right after I made an order to let me know, and let's just say I was devastated. I thought "Oh god, where am I going to get my lip smoothies?"

THANKFULLY, though, Deb didn't leave me all alone like I thought she would. She trained up the new owners and they started Gudonya Too. Now, I really have to say I wasn't sure if the new kid would be as good as the original. I mean, there had to be some doubts, right? We'll all admit it- even training from the master won't always mean that you're as good.

Well, let's just say I ran out of Lip Smoothies and knew I had to find out. I put in an order. And..

Thankfully Gudonya Too is just as good as the original, and even better- they are adding all sorts of new products that have never appeared before. Like Shampoo. There's also lots more non-floap soaps (Don't get me wrong- I love me some floap, but I'm also a fan of soap that doesn't seem to go QUITE so quick- floap goes quick!) and lots of other fun stuff. One of my current favorites is the Oats n Ice bar. You know I love the peppermint, right? TINGLE!

So if you loved the original Gudonya, or are just looking for some really good bath and body suppliers.. head over to Gudonya Too. They've got the same great customer service and the same awesome products.

Now, onto some administrative stuff. This is going to be the first and last time I will say anything about this because I don't like to be pushy, but you may have noticed a small PayPal donation button over on the left-hand side of the blog. As you may or may not know, I'm in grad school now and this means that I'm broke double broke, so if you've got a few extra dollars you can spare to keep me living, please donate. If you don't, I won't hate you, but if you do I'd really appreciate any help I can get.

I hate asking for handouts, but as a person who often donates to others in need, I figure I have to be able to suck up my pride and take what help I can get. So like I said, I won't say anything more- but the donate button will stay there. If you've got something you can give, please do. Also, keep in mind that it IS paypal so anything under $2 probably won't be worth the time once the fees are taken out. Alternatively, if you would like to get something for your money, head over to my shop- I can do custom knitting and crocheting.

And if you can't do any of this, just remember that I am happy you're a reader. Thanks :)
