What I Wore - Dec 27, 2011

What I Wore - Dec 27, 2011, originally uploaded by She's Batty.

Cozy winter wear for a snowy day! I've realized that I don't really like wearing jeans or normal "pants" that much. If I can wear super comfy tights and get away with it outside the house I do! I'm all about comfort and spend must of my time in jiggers (those are sweatpants for those not in the know) or onesies!, And I usually feel like leaving the house is such a hassle because I have to put on uncomfortable clothes -- but, just like every winter when lots of layers is a must and my flare ups are at an all time high, tights + skirts/dresses = my best friend!

Sweater dress is from giant tiger.
Tights are from ebay.
Leg warmers are from

Plus I got a hair cut!! Thanks to Ashley for giving my hair mad style yo!!! The shortness is actually a welcomed surprise! It was time to get rid of the crispiness from all the dying I do and start 2012 with some fresh locks! Yes, the color is horribly faded, but that will hopefully be freshened up before the new year too! As per Ashely's advice (seriously the only gal I trust with my hair!), I'm going to give my hair a break and just use dyes that don't include any lifting agents (which means it will be manic panic type dyes all the way)! ... it will also be a time of me having to embrace my roots lol. This is what hibernating for the winter is all about though right? Ashely gave me some new purple dye to try (can't remember the brand right now - I've never used them before) and I'm excited to see what happens! fun fun fun :)

What I Wore - Holiday Festivities

We had a big family gathering to celebrate the holidays so what better time to break out my ugly sweater outfit!

The dress is from repurposeful punk on etsy. The rest is just from my stash of random bits and pieces I've picked up throughout my travels.

The soap drive has been a great success!

You can pick up your soaps at the Met on Dec 17th & 18th if you order before the online shops go into vacation mode.

Early Shop Closure Announcement!

Early Shop Closure Announcement!

Thank you for all your support!!!

Due to the overwhelming number of orders that have come in the last few weeks, I've made the tough decision to close my online shops earlier than expected for the holidays. I'm closing them early to ensure that all the orders that have come in will be shipped before the Christmas shipping deadlines.


They will be closed mid this week, likely on Wednesday evening. If you've been planning on placing an order, now is the time to do it!

** UPDATE: Dec 8th - The online shops are now closed for the holidays! **


If you're in the London area, we are at the Met for two more weekends.After the shop closures, I'll move all unsold stock to the Met so it's available for any last minute shoppers. The last weekend we will be at the Met is Dec 17th & 18th. The Met is open Saturdays from 10am to 6pm, and Sundays from noon to 5pm.

Thank you again for all your support!
I'm so excited to see so many people embracing natural skin care!
I'll see everyone in the new year! Be safe and stay soapy!


What I Wore - Bright Colors for a Dull Rainy Day

The last few days have been rainy, dull, and dreary. When getting ready to go to the Met, I decided I needed some color.. ok, lots of color! It's kind of funny because I'm a bit Jekyll and Hyde about my sense of style and motifs I'm drawn to. I LOVE bright pastel, rainbow colors, but also can't get enough of black, skull covered halloween inspired palettes. Rather than thinking of these two diverse interests as an indentity crisis, I like to think I'm well balanced - enjoying both sides of the spectrum.

So usually do a run down of where I got everything but this outfit was put together of old and new pieces that I got from random shopping events. The sweater dress is the newest piece and I got that in the states over the weekend at a mall (I can't remember the name of the store), but it was on clearance at the very back of the store! I couldn't believe it when I found it! The belt is from ebay. And the leg warmers are from McCulloch's in London, ON. The shoes I've had for well over 8 years - they too were a clearance mall find but in Canada. Actually, come to think of it, the jacket (you can see a bit of it in the second picture. I'll try to get a better picture of it from my pal Sarah) was on clearance about 5 years ago too! haha. This outfit was one of the cheapest outfits EVER and yet it got a lot of attention! Almost too much attention... I'm used to standing out in a crowd due to my hair but so not used to people actually coming up to me to stare at the knitted work that went into something I'm wearing. It would have been very flattering if I had made the sweater dress lol.

UPDATE: Here's a picture i mentioned above


Great Natural Stocking Stuffers!

Vacation Notice

I'll need to catch up on my sleep by Christmas!
As you know, we are right in the middle of the busiest time of year for BB! At the end of every year I take a couple weeks off, and keep product availability limited in Jan so I can relax and recharge before jumping head first into another busy year. That being said, here's what you need to know about the upcoming shop closings:

All online shops will be closed starting on Dec 20th and will reopen Jan 11th.

Product availability may be more limited than usual while I prepare the new (more eco-friendly) packaging.

It's best to plan to have enough of your fav products to see you through to February
