The ReLaunch

YT¬†Hello all my TwIsTeD pEaChEs! I have been working diligently this summer on the relaunch of my YouTube Channel. I have not posted a new vid since last April. I’ve been on hiatus trying to learn how to improve. I think I’ve learned quite a bit and it will definitely show once I start uploading vids again.

Besides learning, I have been working my tail off on new content. I have 2 vids in the bag and a new channel trailer to boot. So here it is. I’m going to give you guys a sneak-peek of my new trailer. You will not see this anywhere else! ūüėÄ Well, not until September at least.

I’m so excited to relaunch my Channel! I’ve learned much Grasshopper, but I still have more to go.

If any of you have any questions about social media content (especially YouTube), hit me up. I’ve spent many working hours this summer listening to the classics – Darrel Eves, Tim Schmoyer, Roberto Blake, Nick Nimman, Brian G. Johnson, Brittany Bullen, and so much more.

Maybe I’ll know the answer to your question, maybe I won’t, but hey, let’s talk anyway. I really don’t bite (I’m more of a kicker). j/k.

Don’t touch that dial, because you all will be the first to know when my channel gets its facelift.

Okay Peaches, keep it real and stay true to yourself…I’m out.

Cut Loose

clear bubbles¬†Hello¬†to all my tWiStEd PeAcHeS! So sorry I have not updated you all on how my soap turned out. The real truth is…I’m not really sure. As you know, I tried a new lard soap recipe. And as usual, it looked great going into the mold, but 48 hours later, well…you be the judge:

The texture of it is soooo soft. The only way that I can describe it is taking a tube of Chapstick, winding it all the way up and out of the tube, and squishing it between your fingers. Now I am an EXTREMELY green soap maker. So….is that right? That doesn’t seem right to me.

Now I know that it needs to cure for 6 to 8 weeks, so I cut it up and tucked it away. Guess I’ll just wait until mid-September for the final verdict. Any of you seasoned soap maker/fly-girls care to help me out?

See the recipe below:

Who knew that making soap was so very complicated? Darn, you science! You know I’ll keep you all informed as it progresses through the saponification process.

Until next time, keep it real and stay true to yourself!

Ding, Ding, Ding…Round 2.

Well, here I am again. Giving the soap-making another shot. For those of you who have not followed me thus far, my first attempt and cold-process soap-making was an epic fail. But, if at first, you don’t succeed…So to refresh¬†your memory, here’s a photo from my first attempt.¬†soap

Yeah, can’t get much worse right? That’s what I figured.

The new recipe that I tried uses lard, olive oil, and castor oil. Lard (rendered fat) is great for the skin.¬†¬†It won’t clog pores and it resembles the structure of human skin cells which are composed of saturated fats. Lard soap is closer to our skin than plant-based soaps. Ready for some pics?

So I’m letting set up now and will be ready for the cut soon. Let’s cross our fingers!

See you next time. Until then, be peachy!

I’m so Motivated to Clean my House…Said No One EVER!

Uh motivation…we could all use it from time to time – especially when it comes to tidying your house. In this video, we will talk about some of the barriers that can exist between you and a clean home. Focus, energy, distraction, and feeling overwhelmed are just some of the short-comings we all have. However, the joy that comes from a job well done, priceless! Check it out.

 

What types of things put pep in your step and motivate you to turn your home from drab to fab?

Sharing is caring after all.

Keep it Peachy!

It Ain’t Easy Being Green…Uh, Yes it is!

Green thumb 2¬†Do you want to know more about green cleaning? Well you’re in luck because that’s just what we are going to do today. I love using hydrogen peroxide in my everyday cleaning tasks. It’s a great natural cleaner. It is antibacterial, anti fungal, and antiviral. I feel all tingly inside when it bubbles. And the best part? It’s cheap. Follow along as we learn about green cleaning with hydrogen peroxide.

 

Recipe for daily shower spray:
1/2 hydrogen peroxide
1/2 rubbing alcohol
1&1/2 cup water
4 squirts of dishsoap
2 teaspoons rinse aid

Enjoy!

As always, keep it real.

A Cleaner World? Let’s Make It Together.

cropped-peach-logo.jpg What do people all over the world have in common? We all deal with dirt, mess, and general dusty-ness. I have taken a trip to some very special places and learned some very special techniques to crazy-clean your home.

The first place we visit is the amazing land of Africa for a sweeping good lesson.

African Broom

Then we’re off to Asia (China to be exact). Who knew about bamboo scrubbers? Not this girl!

Panda

Then it’s Mexico here we come – to¬†learn how to fend off ghosts (what?).

Mexico

 

And our last stop is Mother Russia for the moral of the story.

Can we bring about world peace by learning cleaning techniques from each other? Well, when we all come together, nothing is impossible. Enjoy the Video!

Keep It Peachy!

 

Wait, What?

Hey everyone, Peach Logo¬†this entry is about forgetting and remembering. We all forget things don’t we? Well, some of us more so than others. As for me, I can remember things from my early childhood, song lyrics, TV characters…but not the items on my grocery list or my grocery list for that matter.

Yesterday I was at a job and I “remembered” to clean under the buttons on the range. Yeah, I was pretty proud about that. I even took a picture! Whoop, whoop!

Yeah, I know I’m awesome. You would be surprised at how dirty it can get under there. Making dirty things clean…oh, so satisfying. So forgetting to clean things…I made a video about it, wanna see it? Well, here it go…

 

Also, please excuse the poor quality of this footage. The production on some of these vids. isn’t the greatest. I shot and edited this one a while back on my phone (it looks it too, I know) :). This is one of the first video’s I did when I started my YouTube Channel. Hey, ya gotta start somewhere right?

Well hopefully, what I’m missing in visual quality can be made up with content quality. I’m trying to catch my blog up with my channel. So I can be more consistent over time.

Are there some things in life you’ve been forgetting about lately? How would you know right? You forgot them. Well if this post jogs your memory, tell me about it!

Keep it Peachy!
