Some of my beautiful new acquisitions....

Each week I find myself surrounded by more and more beautiful hand made treasures. I am so totally converted...Hand made items hold a little of the energy of their maker somewhere can feel the difference, see the difference...

Here are some of my recent purchases

I only ever use hand made soap now....I bought a 'six pack' from Erin of Inner Earth Soaps

They are so good! They last for ages and are never drying against the skin and the fragrances are also delightful. I have 4 left out of this pack...I think when I get down to two I will order some more..I couldn't stand it if I ran out...

My next special treat was from New Earth Soaps

These little Shea Butter Bars are proving to be the perfect thing for dry winter skin.They are quite amazing just warm them for a little while between your hands and then rub all over soft and smooth...I love feeling all shea buttered!!! I will be getting more of these..they make the perfect gift too.

and I now carry this lip balm with me everywhere! We have had some of those nasty end of winter winds the last couple of weeks and this has been the best thing..It is perfect...stays on your lips...not too slippery or greasy and just the perfect waxiness to actually work! It has a lovely gentle natural scent no yukky chemicals or stupid smells..

and then to add another perfect treat to my collection I ordered a sample set of teas from Verity at Joie de Tea

I chose the Ruby Red Mint, the Tonic and the Apple Pie Rooibos and they arrived in perfect and very generous sample sized portions....They are all organic and hand blended and absolutely delicious. I will be back for more!

I feel I have been a little self indulgent....scrubbed all clean and shiny...polished all silky smooth...soothed with luscious's good...all good

That was by no means all that I have recently bought...I will save some to show you in my next post!


  1. So glad you are enjoying the tea! :)

    My goodness, what lovely soaps and things... nothing nicer than a little self-indulgence - and such wholesome indulgences too! Can't wait til I'm in the market for more soap... but still have a few bars to get through...!

  2. What a great way to spoil yourself Leanne! I'm considering only buying handmade soap. Nice to see a picture of you too!

  3. Glad that you are spoiling yourself. I have some of the shea butter bars and I am absolutely in love with them.

  4. Mmmm I love Erins soaps. They are my regular purchase now.

  5. Ooh I got the tea sampler too! the same as you except that I got chamomile sun instead of apple pie rooibos. I can't wait to try them.

    And i have been tempted by erin's soaps for aaages...

  6. OOh the Chamomile Sun tea sounds nice.
    Give in to the soap won't be sorry!
