lather, 9.15

A birthday gift to myself–gorgeous “beer” and “coffee” soaps from Roots Soap Company–made with all natural ingredients like the aforementioned coffee and beer, as well as rainwater collected for the soap making process, tallow, olive oil and organic oats.

Delish.

homemade donuts, 8.15

Awhile back, my sister and I decided to make three different types of mini donuts–blueberry glazed, plain, and chocolate. The blueberries came from the bushes at my mum’s house and the chocolate ones were an experiment that needs much more tweaking, but all and all, I’d make these again, most likely.

Donut making, however, is pretty labor intensive, so don’t expect to whip these up in a matter of minutes. It’s much more delicate than that, despite their not so delicate on the waistline results.

Of course, more snaps of the donuts at the baking flickr set.
