A Very 'Beachy' Christmas.....

Here in Australia we celebrate Christmas during a long, hot and often humid summer.  Many of my fondest Christmas memories from my childhood and teen years centre around day trips to the beach... the waves rolling rhythmically onto the sand; my sun-warmed beach towel underneath me; heated body cooled while eating an orange ice-block (icypole); suntan oil liberally spread...


Let me introduce you to 'Beach Christmas' soap.  Each layer has a different scent which, when sniffed, take me back to those lazy summer days... ahhhhh...









The painting in the last picture was my inspiration for the colour and look of the top two layers.  It was painted by my uncle and given to me as a fantastic 50th birthday present for my last birthday <3 

What nostalgic scents come to mind for you when you think of Christmas?  I would love to know!


Have an awesome day *smile*

My scent? Always evergreen trees, which might be why I seem to be making lots of green soap lately.
This bar is so pretty. So fresh looking.
