Tomorrow is Labor Day here in the United States! As a result, many business and the post offices and banks will be closed. I do have an order that needs to sit until Tuesday but the order train keeps rolling! Since the launch of the Autumn Collection I’ve gotten a few big and a few small orders. As I predicted, wax tarts are becoming more popular now that the weather is beginning to turn. No reviews yet, but I’m hoping to start seeing reviews of the new soap and wax tarts soon. I’m loving the Apple Cinnamon, Pumpkin Spice and Red Apple! 😀
Speaking of pumpkin, the Pumpkin Spice lattes and frappuccinos are here at Starbucks for app users! Starbucks made some waves this year with the edition of real pumpkin to their drinks. I’m all for it! I hope this is a sign that other companies will stop trying to take the cheap way out with colors and artificial flavors. I tried the frappuccino because it’s not quite cold enough for lattes yet. It did taste a bit more pumpkin than spice this year. It’s a great beverage for the season and it would be insane to not include it in my line.
In a lighter, fun note yesterday was the belated birthday celebration! Seattle was sadly put off again because my boyfriend is still sick so we decided to stay local and hang out at an arcade. We both love video games and arcades didn’t exist where we lived on the east coast. This semi recent addition was a great way to have fun! They have American carnival games, motion ride type arcade games, racing games, fighting games and some Japanese exclusive games and stuff! We tried a Japanese photo booth and the results were… something! It’s a great laugh!
