Latest Soapy!

Here's the soap I made to celebrate the birth of my daughter. I wanted a sweet soft floral scent, a little girly, so blended a gorgeous rose fragrance I recently got from the USA with sweet spearmint essential oil, and am very happy with the results!

I think I'll call it "Blush" - what do you all think? I'm starting to run out of new soap names haha! It was meant to have a black swirl, but it went more of a muted grey, which I actually think looks better! I also infused organic red tea into the base for some texture :)

Why no posts?

There's been a reason why I've not been in the blogosphere lately - my little girl came into the world!

After a smooth pregnancy in the last 6 weeks things got a bit scary, and my little girl ended up being born by emergency c-section, and then shortly after her birth had to be admitted to the special needs nursery due to rapid weight loss :(

All is now going wonderfully thank goodness, she's putting on lots of weight thanks to mummy's good milk, and is now just over a month old - and we've fallen hopelessly in love with her :) Isn't she a cutie! (Yes I'm biased lol!)
