LoveLeeSoaps

Today I am featuring the wonderful Leeana Provan of Daytona Beach, Fl from LoveLeeSoaps. She sells colorful, fantastic smelling soaps, body butters, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, and lip balms in all different shapes and sizes. She has incredible soaps that look like donuts, ding dongs, cupcakes- they are remarkable similar to the real thing- but don't eat them!
What is your “real” life like?
There is real life out there besides soap!? When I do find free time I try to always be near the water whether it is spending the day at the beach, jet skiing, or fishing. Most of it is spent with my wonderful boyfriend and chihuahua named Tank. I am also attending college majoring in graphic design.

What is your process?
My soaps are all made using the melt and pour method. I use high quality soap bases that do not contain any harsh detergents, SLES, or SLS. My products are made with all different techniques from swirling to layering that tend to change with my mood.

What are your goals and vision for your business?
My short term goal for my business would have to be making new products and styles and improving all that I can to help it grow more and more everyday. My long time goal would have to be fulfilling my dream of opening a successful bath and body boutique.



How and where do you market your business?
I do some in promoting in the forums on Etsy and pass out business cards when ever I can. I also just signed up for advertising on majaba and I am really excited to see how it turns out.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by so many things around me. Its so amazing how anything you can imagine can be made into soap or something soap related. I am especially inspired by bright colors, fun shapes and interesting designs. I recently came across a necklace on Etsy that I was so inspired by, that I immediately made a soap after it. Pictured Above.

Who is your favorite musical artist? (click on the artist name to see a video)
Just like the styles of my soaps, I change the music I listen to with my mood. Most of the time I listen to Jack Johnson.



What are two of your favorite things from your shop?
This is so hard to choose!
Here are my favorites.....for now :)
