lassieMy name is Lassie and I am a Hippopotamus amphibius, also known as a hippo.

I am from Africa, where I live in a river with the rest of my family.

I never stray far from home, although I emerge at night to feast on grass.

My favorite soap includes ingredients that can exfoliate even the toughest of skin and essential oils with a scent strong enough to repel crocodiles.

Silliness aside, my name is Gwen, and I’m a twenty-something hobby programmer with a full-time job in technical support and a love for cute animals, soap-making and sewing.

I have spent so many hours looking at soap recipes and trying out cleaning solutions and alternatives that when the size of my bookmark file got a bit unmanageable, I figured why not categorize them and share my efforts?
