CLEAN UP OR STICK WITH THE DIRTY?

Today, this blog is to speak about the wonders of using natural soaps on one’s body. SAAAR-J Soaps by Rita(c) offers Natural Soaps. The experience of using these natural soaps have been wonderful on my skin and others who have used them. My skin is feeling very soft and smooth, because the ingredients added to the base soap are all natural. Our customer’s express their joy in using our soaps. There are some great new safe ingredients for our new soaps coming soon.  We work with Goat Milk and Shea Butter the most.

I had the experience of using store bought soaps for a long time and spent good money on them for the longest time. The store-bought soaps seem to melt away without even trying and made my skin feel a little dry. I wasn’t happy at all. Why couldn’t the soap makers provide a soap that would last a decent amount of time before it looked like something that was a little bit bigger than a quarter? Why is there so much ‘stuff’ in the commercial soaps that I couldn’t get pass, and why did the pretty soaps I really liked cost so much? They too, at times, seems to melt away quickly….so quickly. SAAAR-J Soaps(c) are made to enjoy and not concerned with them melting away after a few uses. They offer a lot of uses (depends on how the individual uses the soap on a personal level).

I love the softness of my skin and will not buy commercial soap ever again. I feel safe with SAAAR-J Soaps by Rita rather than store bought. Store bought soaps are nice, but I prefer to know what is safe for my skin. My skin is a huge organ, and it’s important to take care of it. I like the food that I eat, and I like the personal products used on my skin to feel safe on my skin. This is exactly why I started SAAAR-J Soaps. I decided to make my own soap that doesn’t have all the scary stuff that I can barely pronounce as I read the ingredients.

After all is said and done, I have been using SAAAR-J Soaps by Rita, and family, friends and others have used them also for awhile now. It makes me and those who have bought our soaps greatly experience a positively wonderful feel to our skin. The experience of others with these soaps have been awesome, as they communicate their experience to me. I can use them down to the smallest piece of soap (doubtful you would use it that small, but you might be happy to get your money’s worth). I love they don’t break apart, but will last to the point where I just have to start a new one.

Image….It goes where you go and it talks!

Starting project.

RE.- Up and getting ready for a change.

So, here I am, talking about image, and I must mention that image has a place in everything. Everything you do has the  ability of making you form an opinion of “I like, or I don’t like”.  Example: you see a home from the outside. You form your opinion of what that home looks like on the inside or who lives there. There is an immediate feeling about that home.  Hence, your opinion is based on the silent image the house portrayed to you, the lawn, the appearance of the outside of the home, color, size, and other factors. This judgement is made in seconds, not minutes. The particular feeling about this house  will be remembered until something else replaces it.

It’s the same way when you see someone. It doesn’t have to be anyone you know. You look at a picture of someone and the opportunity arises for you to come in front of that person before any words are spoken. Based on the fact you have no knowledge of this person,  you form an opinion, perhaps based on how they dress, how they look, their home, car, way of speech and other type of preconceptions already held. This takes place in seconds!

Image is a sensory experience or a mental picture of oneself or an object. We are all in a place to make judgement calls when we read something, hear something or see something. We, often times, don’t  realize we’ve done it. How about talking to someone on the telephone that you’ve never seen, never met and know nothing about. It could be a wrong number. What does that person look like in your mind’s eye? You have an image based on the voice. Yes, it’s human nature. We react probably more than we act. I want to tell anyone who is reading this blog that image is a part of your everyday life. What we see, experience through someone else remains so unless something else comes to take its place. Image changes from one moment to the next. At times, it may give you a different opinion after the first reaction. The same applies to you, as a person. You see someone or someone sees you without any introductions; a perfect stranger. You size up this person in just a few seconds. You think you know a lot about this person, but really you know nothing more than your eyes can see. You don’t even know their voice tone, the colors they like, or wear most often, etc.

Image is fascinating. Your sensory perception begins to work hard when you are at a place where there lots going on. In a crowded place, you may see many people for the first time. You have already formed so-called opinions of each one; some more than others. You go to visit someone, but even before you reach your destination you’ve formed an opinion of  how things are going to go; who will be there and your thoughts of who they are and what they do. Then, once you’ve reached your destination, what are your thoughts? You may have forethought of what you think will happen and the people you will deal with. Therefore, based on that determination, you like  it or you don’t. Do you always have a reason why you like or don’t like someone or something? I like to write about image, and in fact, I will probably do a radio show about how important image is, and everyone has one. It is an opinion, or sometimes even a judgement,  by another person who you may not have ever met. While I speak of image, I want to be sure we all understand that it happens in silent mode at times. We do, at times, remember and still judge others based on the first image of connection.

It is almost impossible to meet someone for the first time and not form an image of that person. In fact, in my mind, it doesn’t happen. There is always an opinion formed for those we meet the first time to the 50th, 60th, 100th time. We are always making  judgement calls on one another, and none of us are perfect. Therefore, we should note we are connected to one another as humans, and it is normal and natural to prejudge or assume, although this is not a positive action. What would be nice is if we didn’t do all this pre-judging, and just let emotions and thoughts come in a quiet, good way. It is always nice to see if you can really find out the truth about what you’re thinkinghe people you hear about and haven’t met. As you can see this topic really interests me. I actually used to give talks to colleges and major companies about projecting  positive image. There is only one opportunity to make a great first (1st) impression. Why have I blended this in with my decorating? Because, it’s essential that people acknowledge themselves as a bigger part of the message the home is portraying. After all, when someone compliments you on your home or anything else, they have already formed their opinion about both, and they like you.

Accentuate Home Styling & Consulting offers online and in person consultations to assist you in building a decorating plan for your next DIY project. We look forward to hearing from you.
