Good! Soap .....cut

I cut the Good! Soap and it has been curing for nearly a week. I fear I didnt use enough fragrance oils....the smell seems weak. I have been told that it may get stronger as it cures. Time....literally... will tell.

I also made myself a batch of mango-mac-mint butter. Mango butter...unrefined, all natural was combined with macademia nut oil and peppermint. Nothing else was colors, no chemicals, no scent. These natural ingredients does the trick all by themselves.

My first cp soap

"Good" soap....not the soap I planned for my first cp soap but still good.

Its got soybean, caster, macademia nut, canola, coconut oils and mango butter. Confetti scent which is kinda like coffee and peppermint.

I'll be able to cut it tomorrow or the next day. Lather test in a week....and a 6 week curing time after that. Then it will be ready to sell.

I love the brambleberry soap calculator app I bought to check measurements as it allows me to save recipes and therefore remake any soap exactly.

Purple stick blender

Very cool...fave color, good price. There is a small crack in the included measuring cup but it still holds liquid and I don't use it anyway...the blender has such power that when used its capable of intense suction....lifts a small bowl up while spining it if not being held.....that's what I paid for...don't care about the cup.

Made some soap with it....happy camper.

Ombre nails

My first attempt....then I added a glittery pink as a top coat...which gave it an entirely different look. I got the idea from Pink Addictive from youtube. Check her out when you get a chance.
