I made a new soap a couple of weeks ago, and have just gotten round to putting up pictures and uploading it to my folksy shop - things have been a little hectic of late! Lots of exciting things going on at work at the moment.
Anyway, here is a new one for you - slightly out of my bakery theme, but it kind of fits. White Tea & Wisteria - it's punchy, it's floral, it's got lovely delicate undertones and basey notes that make you go "aaahhh" as you smell it. It's lovely, and it's exactly what I wanted! I wanted a soap to take into a bubble bath and help me relax even more, and this bad boy definitely does the job.
My description for my folksy shop is as follows: "White Tea & Wisteria. Bathe and relax in the heady exotic and alluring floral smell of Wisteria, coupled with the fresh and delicate fragrance of White Tea. With heaps of shea butter and lovely caring oils such as castor and coconut, this soap is the perfect accompaniment to your bubble bath. And it looks pretty to boot!" I really feel like I hit the nail on the head with this soap, it's just perfect. I love the top layer of glitter as well, that was a bit of an afterthought but I'm so glad I did it - it underlines the girliness of it all just beautifully.
Anyway, enough chat - here are some pictures!

The layers came out quite well considering the white part completely seized on me - like wow, seriously, it was hard to get it in the mould. I scented the white part with White Tea and the pink part with Wisteria. The pink part was actually supposed to be purple, but it morphed in the mould as it set. The glitter is purple and irridescent white which was supposed to match the layers, but I think it looks quite nice all the same.
So there you have it guys! The final cure date is the 12th June, and it's already in my Folksy Shop if you would like to buy :)
Hope your weekend is going well!
