We’ve finally moved into The Pad and with half of our stuff moved in and the kitchen fully functional, its time to get me an apron. 

Can’t find anything in the shops and so of course, I’ve turned to Etsy and shortlisted the final 2 from Boojiboo.  Here’s where I need your help.  I’ve wavered back and forth so many times between the 2 that now I’m really thoroughly confused – I don’t know with which the apron love lies anymore! 

So please vote and let me know which I should get!  HELP me please!

These are just too beautiful for words.

Flowers from SAIPUA, found through Happy Hour Bride.  The arrangements make me want to bring an entire garden into the house. Especially love the ranunculuses. 

SAIPUA also does beautifully packaged soaps, which are available in Singapore at Stranglets @ Amoy Street:

A few years back, I bought some handmade soaps online.  I’m usually icky about bar soaps cos I’m so used to liquid soap now… but I’ll never forget how luxurious the soaps were and how soft my skin felt after using them that I’ve put the icky hurdle aside. *MMMmmmm*

I don’t remember where I got them from anymore, but I recall shipping was really expensive back then (the soaps were from USA).

Today, I found some prettily marbled handmade shea butter soaps from Etsy seller copperlilly!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cocoa Butter Soap - Limited Edition

White Chocolate Raspberry Cocoa Butter Soap - Limited Edition

Shea butter is a substance made from the nuts of karite nut trees.  It is a moisturizer and emollient and is also known as an anti-inflammatory agent – shea butter has been used to help heal burns, sores, scars, eczema, dandruff, and even stretch marks!

But the best thing about copperlilly’s soaps is that unrefined shea butter is used.  Why is unrefined shea butter great?  Cos it retains all its natural vitamins, especially vitamins A and E.  Stuff really good for the skin.

And there are up to 16 scents to choose from!  I’d love to try these scents: Almond Champagne, Vanilla Nut, Sparkling Ginger Fizz… the list goes on, and I can’t decide! =P

Copperlilly’s soaps retail at US$6.  After shipping, they can come up to quite an amount, costing almost S$14 per bar.  Thankfully, you can select up to 6 different scented soap bars (between 5 and 5.5 oz) and combine them into a multi-pack.  This would eventually work out to an estimated S$10 per bar of soap (inclusive of shipping).

Anyone interested to share the multi-pack of 6 with me? =)
