Kaiteriteri Beach.. a delicious luxury bar soap.

Kaiteriteri Beach

Winter is making its presence felt, i was reading yesterday that here in New Zealand we experienced our coldest day since 1903 with some places reaching a -20 degree Celsius,well all i can say is its really, really cold and my hands are numb from the cold just typing this.

So i thought you may like to see one of my latest bar soaps this is Kaiteriteri Beach inspired by my visit to what i think is one of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches.

This bar smells divine the fragrance lasts and lasts and is a favorite for me and one i use time and time again.
 Sweet french vanilla, subtle sandalwood,creamy coconut milk patchouli, delicate English rose, plum, grapefruit, sensual soft musk, lily and jasmine. it is a beautifully moisturizing bar with the most deliciously thick creamy lather that leaves your skin silky smooth.

Real Cupcakes & Brownies

Hi Everyone,
Yesterday was my adult sons 24th birthday, time fly's by so fast,it only seems like yesterday that he was a cute little bubba now he has his own family.

But it doesn't matter how old my kids get i am still mum and i still like to bake for them, so instead of making a devils food cake like i usually do for my son i decided to make cupcakes and brownies.

I thought i'd share some photos of the baking i made, i don't bake a lot anymore and the photos i take are usually of soap not actual food so it was a nice change for me.

I found a lovely recipe which i changed slightly and the result was moist dark chocolate cupcakes, i made a chocolate mousse for the frosting as i hate a gritty icing made with icing sugar, next i made lemon and vanilla cupcakes with a lemon buttercream frosting, and lastly came the brownies, these are a huge hit in my family super moist and a little chewy with huge chunks of chocolate in them and just a dusting of icing to finish. 

My son had a lovely evening relaxing with his family exchanging gifts.
