Fortune Cookie Soap Summer Launch (and GIVEAWAY)

Hey cupcakes! So as most of you probably know by now, I was invited to attend the 2017 summer launch party put on by Fortune Cookie Soap for the release of their summer collection, "A Pirates Life For Me." When I arrived and entered the warehouse, an amazing smell practically kicked me in the face-a wonderful blend of all the yummy scents being stored there.

 Next, I met Rachel. She was lovely and kind, as always. After I met with Rachel, I met the queen of soap universe herself, Shannon!


If I didn't know why the company was growing at such an outstanding rate before, I definitely do now. Shannon was so warm and welcoming. She embraced me in a big hug and welcomed me to the launch, told me to make myself at home and enjoy some of the food they had brought in. I was introduced to the crew, and saw a few familiar faces. (Meri Sue, Abby, Bethany, and of course Justin.)

Tina, who is very much the Mom figure, showed me to my seat, and before I knew it what I had seen so many times on my computer began before me in person. Shannon and Justin also brought me in front of the camera for a second to say hello. (You can see me on the launch party stream #1 at about 6:53)



Like you who watched the launch video, I got to see this sneak peek from the "Treat Yo Self 2k17" collection. I'm not exactly sure how to describe it, but it smells SUPER good. 


It lasted about an hour, and afterwards I got to look through the warehouse shelves. It was the coolest thing to see all the smelly goods on the website in person. I was able to talk to Shannon and Justin a bit before leaving with this beautiful haul of goodies.


Isn't it pretty? Afterwards I went back to my hotel and poured everything out on the bed, and opened/smelled everything like a kid with new toys. You guys, all I can say is, Shannon and Justin (and the whole FCS crew) are every bit as amazing, kind, and friendly as we experience them online. They made me feel like one of the family, and I am forever a Fortune Freak! :)
