About me

My name is Milena Yordanova. Some of you may already know me as the blogger behind My Vacation Itineraries. For the rest of you – nice to meet you. I live in Sofia, Bulgaria. It is a small, but a very beautiful country in southeastern Europe (north from Greece).

About the blog

Before I discovered the homemade cosmetics, I spent a lot of money to buy expensive stuff. It was all in vain. Nothing helped my dry and problematic skin.

One day during lunch a friend of mine told me that she uses homemade cosmetics. I was intrigued and after few days I made my first body scrub. It was so easy and I was stunned by its effect on my skin.

The idea for the blog came a few days later. I wanted a place to keep all my recipes and all the information I gathered during the process of learning. I hope that you will find the information on my blog useful and you will see the benefits from using homemade cosmetics.

Why Bear Spa?

Yes I know, the name sounds strange. It all started with my huge love for bears and especially teddy bears.

I made my first body scrub in an old jar of a commercial body scrub (Avon – Planet Spa). I wanted to keep the second word spa, because after using the body scrub I was feeling like I have been to spa. I replace the first word planet with something that I truly love – bears. It wasn’t only because of my love for them though. I wanted in this way to turn your attention to nature and its creatures because sometimes the beauty products we use harm them.
