Babycakes: Babyface

This morning a lady at a store asked me what product I am using for my face, since my skin looks "flawless"! Wow... what a complement! (and way to make my whole morning! Busy mom of 12... flawless? I'll be playing that over and over in my head for days!)

Well, I've been using Babycakes: babyface as my night time moisturizer for my face and neck for a few months now. I LOVE this product!

What makes it different?
Well... true to all Babycakes products, it contains no water or filler liquid and only plant-based natural oils are in the jar! It's a unique blend of 40% Argan Oil (very popular for anti-aging creams, anti-scar and stretchmark creams), and other skin-healing butters and oils that makes it very healing for the skin while it helps replenish lost moisture and elasticity.

I've been using the 4 ounce jar for 3 months now and I have several uses left.

Babyface is unscented, so nothing will irritate your eyes!

Feel free to ask any questions you have regarding this product or any others!
I love to help you find the right product for your needs!

April shipment

Hello everyone!

We are home, getting settled in, and starting to come out of our crazy-travel-jet-lag-new-kids fog
and wanted to let you know we are doing well!

I have a bunch of orders you all placed while we were in Ethiopia or when we first got home, and while I sure appreciate the orders, it's been a little guilt-inducing letting them sit there while I adjust to being the Mommy to 12 kids!

I will be shipping by April 30th, and then - I intend to ship on/around May 15th and 30th.

Thanks for your patience!!

Oh, and here's that "finally together" photo I promised!
Taken at the airport, after 30+ hours of travel...
don't judge.

Babycakes Orders!

Hello, sweet babycakes friends!

We will be leaving in 5 days to go get our children!!

I am working hard this week to finish up shipping all current orders.
If you would like to place an order to be shipped before we leave...
please order before Wednesday April 4th!

After this date, I intend to ship twice monthly - on/around the 15th and 30th.
I think this will be the easiest way for me to stay on top of my orders/shipping and keep you stocked up on the products you love!

Thank you all for your kindness and support as we've been waiting to bring our kiddos home!

Changes to the Babycakes line!

Over the past year I have tried to pay attention to what scents
my friends constantly request and which ones seem to sell the best.

After careful observation, 
I've done some math and discovered
that the top three Babycakes scents are:

Mint Blend



Therefore, in order to (hopefully) make my ordering/shipping process run more smoothly (even with a house full of children running around)...
I've decided to carry those three scents year-round and
add a limited-edition scent as I get the itch to try a new scent!
(such as the Vapors scent from December and January that I made in a small batch)

As you probably know, 
shipping is the worst part of what I do.
If I could magically "POOF!" your order to your house I would totally do it.
Instead, I am stuck using a much less reliable postal service.
I recently had my first total loss on a shipment that the USPS destroyed.
(Super sad day.)
I also am horrible at getting orders shipped quickly because it seems like
something else always comes up.
I am brainstorming how to make this work better...
but leaning towards a twice a month shipping schedule.
(That seems to be how often I can sit and pack up orders recently anyway...)

I am going to replace my ordering button so that it reflects the changes in scents, ASAP!

Thank you all for your continued support!!

I love hearing how much you love your Babycakes products, too!
Please leave me a comment or come post on the facebook page about your experience!

January scent!

Hello there, babycakes!

I'm home from Ethiopia and happy to announce that we passed court and I'm now the proud Mommy to 12 gorgeous kiddos!! Our newest babies - 3 boys, 2 girls - will hopefully be coming home from Ethiopia this spring! They are wonderful and we are so blessed to be their parents!!

I'm getting my backlog of orders shipped today and tomorrow - thank you so much for your patience!

The current scent through February is LAVENDER! I know there are many of you who love this scent and it's been awhile since it's been the Scent of the Month, so... enjoy!!

Let me know if you have a preference for the next scent!

Also - if you go through a lot of babycakes per month, you MAY want to order an extra jar and stock up for 4-6 weeks if I need to close down orders when we travel to pick up our kiddos and arrive back home (and adjust to having a dozen kids!). I will give you all as much notice as I have - probably posting a "warning" when we get submitted to Embassy so that you know it's coming SOON! 

Thank you, Babycakes friends!
You've blessed my family with your continued orders and support!

Oh... and here's a pic of me and the new kiddos!! :)

November (and December) scent!

Hi there, babycakes!

I've chosen the scent for November and it will run through December 20th (when I take the rest of the month off for Christmas!).

Candy Cane!

This is a peppermint-only scent, NOT the same as the Mint Blend (which is a blend of 4 different mint oils)!

I am also brainstorming new names for the Honey Hold since MANY people are saying how wonderful it is on their rough heels, elbows, cuticles, etc! It's not just for holding braids and twists! If you have a great idea, please leave it in the comments section for me!

Babycakes: Lip Butter continues to be HUGELY popular but especially now, heading into winter! Stock up with your next order so you don't run out!

Thank you everyone for your continued support! It's such a blessing to my family!!

Adoption Update: Our dossier should be in Ethiopia any moment now, and then it begins it's translation in-country before being submitted to the courts so we can wait for a court appointment date! Praying we can still MAYBE get a court date in December... but that's a VERY LONG long-shot!
