Thanks for the pictures. First time seeing a cupcake machine. Is it good?
When you carrying both bags, do you carry your wf in briefcase mode and synapse in backpack mode?

We didn't actually purchase cupcakes from the Cupcake ATM. We just laughed at it and took pictures of it. (Seriously. We laughed, took pictures, walked away, and then came back and laughed some more and took more photos.)

Thanks for the mention of the Chagrin Valley products. I ordered a few of the samples (including some shea butter that should be great for my winter skin) and can't wait to try them out. I'm trying to cut down on the size of the toiletries I travel with, and it would help a lot to have one bar that can double as shampoo and body soap in a pinch.

I'd say that the bar that I use (the tea tree) does quite well as both soap and shampoo. It's astringent enough that hair gets really clean, but there are enough essential oils that it doesn't desiccate my skin. The fact that it's a solid can go a long way to freeing up space in the 1-quart bag if you're flying, too.
