Very sneak preview of my new Portugal range

Yup, last two soaps came out of the molds today and I am very happy, they are great, really worth all the effort thinking about them, how I wanted them to look and how the hell I was going to achieve this - not easy!

The range is my attempt to recreate the Portugal feeling and why I love the place so much, I am also hoping it will help with my new wholesale in Europe venture.

This is the inspiration in colours for FLORESTA VERDE (Green Forest)

Then the second one that was unveiled today is my attempt to pay homage to the Portuguese love of everything sweet, puddings, cream, honey and sugar.  I think I am calling this one MEL CREMOSO (Honey & Cream).  Its sweet and honey scented and (I think) very pretty.
Anyway, more photos and proper explanations to follow, I just wanted to share these with you today.  Do let me know what you think of them.


  1. I love these both... great inspiration... your place in Portugal looks awesome. I can see why you love going there so much. xo Jen

  3. Wow, they are both so gorgeous. The detail on the first one is amazing. You did a fantastic job.

  4. Thanks so much for the comments, they are all now finished and cut up, curing and getting themselves ready for their photo shoot and launch!!

  5. Wicked Sis! Love the look of the honey one, soooo pretty. Reserve me a slab when it gets out! XXXX
