Yesterday was a jam packed day that had all the best elements New York City has to offer. I spent the day talking to magazine editors about how they could utilize Bramble Berry products and projects in upcoming editions of their magazine. It’s hard to know how those went because they’re a little like job interviews; you bring samples, you put your best foot forward and then you hope they call.
What I know went well was Martha Stewart Living Radio. I was on with host Mario Bosquez from Living Today. He’s been gracious enough to have me on the show three times now and it felt like coming to visit a good friend. We talked about Flexy Fast (I even made some on the air) and upcoming episodes of SoapQueen.TV He was pretty excited about what I have in store for you this week. The best part of the show for me was that 7 soapmakers called in with questions. It was so gratifying to have people call in to talk about soap. We had questions on essential oil usage, safe disposal of lye, non-bleeding colors and Gillian (the winner of the ‘Best in Show’ at the Soap Guild Conference this year) even called in with a question on combining melt and pour and cold process. The 30 minute segment went by in the blink of an eye. I am so thankful for the opportunity to talk to more soapers and hopefully introduce a wider audience to the joys of soap.
I ended the evening with an amazing show – Billy Elliot, the Musical. Elton John wrote the music for this powerful and moving story about a young boy following his dreams. It received 10 Tony Awards. It was a totally packed house and the audience gave the actors a standing ovation several times; the show was that good.
Finally, I neded the evening in traidtional tourist way – in Times Square getting a dorky photo of myself taken. It’s very warm and humid.
Today, I’m headed to New Jersey to meet with some teen magazine editors to talk about our DIY Eye Shadow, Foundation and Lipstick kits. The combination of those plus the DIY Perfume kits would make a great slumber party.

You rock! Bramble Berry rocks! Hope you get "hired" for some magazines. And next time you are in NYC check out Blue Note Jazz Club for an evening of great music.

Congratulations on the radio show in New York. I dream of the day I am on TV or the radio talking about Bio-Diesel soap made from bio-glycerin. I can not wait to read more on your blog and learn some new recipes.
Sounds like a fabulous trip. Hope you gets lots of calls from the editors.
