Visiting Havasoap in Lake Havasu

Hello lovelies!

The travel bug bit over the weekend, so I hopped in the car and drove 150 miles to Lake Havasu City.


Lake Havasu has been on my list of places to visit for years. I first heard about it on an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  One of the ladies mentioned visiting each summer with her family. I don’t think I got the full experience, which I think requires an aquatic activity of some kind and copious amounts of alcohol – but I had a great time walking around being a tourist. Next time around I’ll hop on the ferry to Havasu Landing Casino. I don’t gamble, but for some reason casinos intrigue me.


I stumbled upon Havasoap while there – a really cute shop that carries artisan soaps, essential oils, soap bases and fragrances.


I knew the peppermint mister spray would be a great choice that day with temps in excess of 90 degrees. I encourage you to check out Peppermint Jim to see what other products the brand has to offer.
