People inspire me. A lot of soapers find amazing inspiration in nature, and lots of other things, but I’ve found that for me, it’s people.
One of the people I knew was Minaxi. Maybe you had the good fortune of knowing her too. She knew a lot of people! We didn’t talk as much as I would have liked. She ended up gravitating toward Instagram and wasn’t blogging as much anymore. (Her family has taken down her blog but her IG is still up if you’d like to see her pictures.) I miss her. More than I can say.
Minaxi exuded a lot of joy, no matter what might be going on for her. One of her favorite tags was #PinkPositiveLight, because pink was her favorite color and she believed in being a positive light. It suited her. 🙂
I made a soap in her honor. I scented it with Pink Magnolia Blossom. I was going to look for a cotton candy fragrance but when I saw that Pink Magnolia, I knew that was the perfect choice for a soap for Minaxi. It’s light and sweet and delicate.
I didn’t get to put in the swirls like I was hoping as the soap started setting up on me much sooner than I expected, but I think it turned out okay. I hope she would have liked it.
Minaxi and her husband Vishnu left the world way too soon, but they will always remain in my heart.
Requiescat in Pace.
