Masala Zone

One of my favourite Indian restaurants is Masala Zone. The traditional Indian 'Thalis' are super tasty and taste almost as good as mums food. I have only been to 'Masala Zone' in Angel and Covent Garden' and the decor in both are mesmerising, quirky and colourful just like a bollywood scene.
I came across these photos which were taken last year and thought i would put them up.

Rose Soap

I have recently made a batch of rose soap with lashings of shea butter coloured with pink clay and scented with rose and geranium essential oils.
This is the first time that i have layered the colours, i usually just go for the whole block of pink then top with rose petals, but this time i wanted to do something a little different.

Rose soap has finished curing and is listed for sale in my Folksy shop.

 This soap is fully cured and is available to buy from my folksy shop
