A strange and unusual event was attended by us the other night. A collaboration with Harumika (a children's craft brand) and River Island's Chelsea girl! As crazy as it sounds this was actually a really great night. We watched 10 miniscual mannequins rotate around a tiny runway, wearing the exact collection for Chelsea girl A/W 12, but in mini form. It was very sweet and we got a great goody bag to design our own small collection. You can read more about the evening and event in my article here.
Someone cheekily snapped me looking in awe and a bit cold.
For a while now I have been making my own soap and bath bombs. This is mainly because I love making them smell exactly right and decorating them, any excuse to go to a craft shop really! Also my skin is terrible, it reacts to anything and so I try to use ingredients and scents that wont make my frail skin react.
I made this tutorial on youtube a while ago on bath bomb making and you can read my step by step guide on the magazine website here. I have had a few requests on a soap tutorial as well, so when I am a bit less busy with uni and the like then I will get down to making one.
I am hoping this can become more of a business/ job type thing rather than a hobby. I am planning to get the health and safety certificate very soon, so I can sell my soapy treats at a Christmas market. No idea if it will be to anyone's taste but my own, but we shall see.
Here are some that I made for my boyfriend's sister's birthday. And I put them in this lovely box, purchased on eBay.
I do hope this little project of mine can become something and that I can always smell like fragrance oil and soap suds for years to come!
