Amy's blog is one of my top 3 go-to blogs ever, she's incredibly talented, and has a huge level of experience having been soaping since 2002. I adore her images, her soaps, her tips and hints....and she is so sharing with her information, it's just incredible.
Amy suggested a soap swap, or a swaop if you will, when I raved, publicly, on her blog about her fabulous Cranberry Yuzu soap. Its colours, its design, its "pick me up, smell me, touch me .. you know you want to" good looks - I just had to have it. So we did a deal, she asked for my Wild Blueberry and I asked for Cranberry Yuzu ... a vertiable fruit salad swap!
She sent her soaps first (I was waiting for the Blueberry to finish curing) and they were magnificent. One huge Cranberry Yuzu and two lovely samples of Cinnamon Apple Peach and Candied Currants.
I have a confession ... I have to admit I'm a terrible swapper *hangs head in shame*. We opened the Candied Currants immediately and used it all up. NO pics! Imagine! What was I thinking?! I'm sorry Amy, I didn't mean it. It was just calling to me, its beautiful colours (green, black and red if you're asking) and its incredible fragrance - juicy, sweet, delicious, the kind of soap you want to bite! And it was fabulous - creamy lather, loads of bubbles, it made all our skin so soft and it lingered ... I LOVE a soap who's scent lingers. It was just sooo good. It made me want more. Just as well that I have more!
So, tonight the Cranberry Yuzu goes into the shower - tomorrow is our first go with this juicy deliciously fragranced soap, I have to say that I cannot wait. But I was good, I
So here you go - these are the Cranberry Yuzu and the Cinnamon Apple Peach (check out the oh so amazingly cute golden apple stamp!) ..my mouth is watering just thinking about them!
You cannot not love these... look at them? They are simply stunning! Can you fall in love with a soap? If so, I'm there already.
Thanks Amy, for encouraging my unending addiction to stunningly beautiful wonderful soap ... you might hear me singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in the shower tomorrow morning!
