Soapy Cupcakes

I have finally caved and make soap cupcakes ... they've been doing the rounds for a while and I've never tried making them before but I got the urge and decided to go for it.  I ordered some tips and an icing bag and off I went.

These are Raspberry Lime cupcakes made with cold process soap - I used my favourite formula of Sweet Almond & Golden Olive oils with tons of Cocoa Butter, Silk, Goatsmilk and Kaolin.  They're fragranced with a blend of juicy raspberry and zingy lime - a perfect Summer scent.

Here they are in the mould ... I'll demould in about 2 or 3 days I think and, if I talk nicely to her, maybe Titch will do her magic with the photos!

Hope you like em!

These will be fully cured in 6 weeks time and will be available on

Rum Runner

This is a remake of Rum Runner - a soap for men (but women will steal it, no doubt about that!). The fragrance is described as an exotic blend of Allspice, Cloves & Nutmeg drizzled with Sweet Orange on a bed of crisp Pine Needles nestled within a deep warm base of Patchouli & Vanilla. It honestly smells like the sexiest man in the Universe! Packed with Sweet Almond & Golden Olive Oils with tons of creamy Cocoa Butter and Goatsmilk, this is a total treat for the man in your life!

New Birkenstocks!

I love Birkenstocks! I found them when I had mega foot problems two years ago - plantar problems are SO painful and I spent upwards of 500 euro trying to get the problem sorted but it didn't get rid of it.  After leaving my physio and feeling poop about my mega painful left foot, I decided to buy some sandals as it was getting warmer and warmer.  I got some on sale Birkenstocks and OH BOY, foot pain gone in about 3 days, I kid you not!

So, this winter, I was being cheap (hey, we all have to these days, right?) and got a pair of on sale Doc Martins... I love the things but they do not love my feet.  After weeks of breaking them in (very painfully I might add) my left foot is now suffering hugely again - they just don't support my foot like I need.  I'm horribly flat footed and I need the support the Birkenstocks give me.  Plus I'm suspecting the bad foot is making me compensate with my right leg and now my right knee is giving me problems.

So, the other day, I said enough is enough... and went online and looked up Birkenstocks in Ireland and found ... free shipping for anything over 39.99 euro too! And I bought these...

Aren't they pretty? They are SHINY, I like SHINY!! And they have diamante on the buckle... even my shoes have glitter!!!

They are sooooooooooooooooo comfy and I'm hoping they stop the pain as soon as possible.

Of course, now I'm looking these for the summer....

Me loves!!!

I haven't kept the blog up to date with our soaping videos! If you don't know, I have my own channel on You Tube .. just click on and you'll see all our videos.  I do a combo of cutting videos and making videos.  I was so nervous when I started out but I really enjoy making them now.  My trusty sidekick, Titch, is the videographer and we have such a blast making our videos together.
