Kiwi: A Love/Hate Relationship

Friday, August 12th, 2011

I’ll admit it. I’m a picky eater.

I have never been adventurous with food. I know what I like and like what I know, and if a food so much as looks, feels or smells funny, I won’t even consider putting it near my mouth. I’m not just talking about an aversion to the more exotic foods, like frog legs or liver. I’m talking about everyday food, such as ground meat (I don’t trust what’s in there), smelly broccoli and slimy mushrooms. And you can’t trick me either. If I feel that I have any reason to doubt a food, I won’t eat it. If a sneaky onion somehow makes it into my bite, my “stranger danger” alarms start going off at first crunch.

Not too long ago, kiwi would have made my list of scary food. Between the fuzzy skin and the gooey green center, this tropical fruit made me wary for many years. I remember my dad eating kiwi when I was little and I didn’t want any part of it. That strange looking fruit might as well have been from Mars and Martian food wasn’t on my approved food list.

Many years passed and I found myself enjoying Easter dinner at the home of my boyfriend’s aunt and uncle this past spring. For dessert, his aunt served shortcake with a medley for fruit, including the dreaded kiwi. I scooted it across my plate as I snacked on the strawberries when I remembered how much I enjoy strawberry kiwi Italian sodas. I figured that if I liked those, then kiwi couldn’t be so bad. I started tentatively at first with just a teeny tiny bite. Hmmm…it wasn’t too bad. So I tried a second bite and found that I actually enjoyed the tart taste. Maybe I had been wrong all these years about the harmless kiwi.

Although I’ve yet to eat another kiwi, I’m no longer afraid. But I am still a self-proclaimed picky eater, and at 26 years old, I don’t see that changing anytime soon.

While we don’t have any actual fruit to offer you, we can give you 25% off a bottle of our delicious Strawberry Kiwi hand wash during August as part of our Tropical Fruit Sale. The sale also includes an array of other delightful tropical scents, including Papaya Mango, Coconut, Island Banana and Kiwi Lime. Stock up on hand washes, bath salts, exfoliating scrubs and more! Sale ends on August 31, 2011.

Create a Decorative and Sweet Smelling Coastal Bathroom

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Who says that bathrooms have to be dull and simple? While it may not top your list of favorite rooms, you spend enough time daily in the bathroom – whether it’s primping to start the day or relaxing in a nice bubble bath to end it – to warrant sprucing it up a bit. Simply adding a splash of color or creating a theme to tie the whole bathroom together can make a difference. And don’t forget about the extra touches to help you indulge in some of life’s little pleasures, like a great smelling soap or an aromatic bath salt.

One of our favorite decorative ideas for transforming a plain bathroom into a comforting and relaxing oasis is to add a touch of the seaside. There’s no denying that there’s something calming about listening to the waves crash against the shore but there’s also something about the sounds and sights of a day at the beach that create a peaceful atmosphere.

Any bathroom counter will instantly look uplifted with one of these hand wash and hand lotion caddy sets. Available in a variety of designs, including sea shells and a row boat, there’s something for everyone! Even better, they’re all on sale for 25% off during July! Consider treating yourself to one and adding a second as a lovely touch to the guest bathroom.

From top left: Sea Breeze, Driftwood and Sand, Ocean Breeze and Sea Mist, $15 each through July 31, $20 each regular price.

Don’t forget to treat yourself to a bit of pampering too. After a long day, there’s few things better than a nice, relaxing soak in the bathtub. Up the enjoyment of your bath with one of these fragrant bath salts.

From left: Ocean Breeze, Island Guava and Sea Breeze, each $4.75 through July 31, $6 after.

 

If you haven’t already browsed our Ocean Fragrance of the Month sale, hurry because time is running out! Sale ends on July 31. Don’t miss your chance to save 25% on all these great beach-scented hand washes, lotions, bath salts, room mists and more!

Also, this weekend is your last chance to sign up for the July Giveaway!

 

Is your bathroom themed? What’s your favorite bath time scents? Tell us about it in a comment and you could win a $25 gift card to SJ Creations. All comments from now through the end of August will be entered in the giveaway. A winner will be selected on September 1.

Celebrate Memorial Day with History and Special Offers!

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Image: dan / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Many people view Memorial Day simply as a day off from work or the unofficial start to summer. But few Americans actually know the history behind the day so here’s a quick lesson.

The holiday began in 1868 as Decoration Day, a celebration to honor the Civil War soldiers who died. About 5,000 people attended the inaugural event at Arlington National Cemetery to decorate the graves of 20,000 soldiers and pay their respects.

Over the following century, people continued to honor the wartime heroes, especially in the years after World Wars I and II. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day an official federal holiday and set the date as the last Monday in May.

Although the holiday weekend is more often filled with backyard barbeques and road trips these days, some communities manage to keep the true spirit of the holiday alive with parades and other celebrations. Arlington National Cemetery continues to honor the fallen soldiers with a ceremony including a speech from the president and the placement of an American flag on each soldier’s grave.

SJ Creations hopes that you have a happy and safe holiday weekend. We want to help you kick off the celebration by offering a 15% discount on all orders from May 27-May 30. As an added bonus, the first 10 customers who redeem the code MDBUTTER this weekend will receive one FREE body butter with a $10 minimum purchase! Body butter will be automatically added to your cart. Please include a comment or send us an email at info@sjcreationsinc.com to select a specific scent! Offer ends May 30.

Enjoy this special offer for the first 10 people to redeem code MDBUTTER. Choose an 8 oz. body butter in cocoa butter, coconut, coconut lime, olive oil, soy or vanilla sugar and get it for FREE!!!
