Shop-me ! at The Garden Shop

This is your Soap Auntie's first attempt at a collage. Okie ... stop laughing at the "Soap Auntie" !! When you've had two kiddos, even the fishmonger at the market here (in Singapore) addresses you most politely as "Auntie". Our local courtesy campaigns are most effective ;)

Christmas is just round the corner and if you have yet to pick a lil treasure for your loved ones ... do pop over to the Garden Shop at The Singapore Botanic Gardens and grab a lovely potted orchid plant or one of my handcrafted soaps.

Don't forget to stop at my favourite pizza cafe just opposite the retail shop ! ... yumyum ...

Happy shopping !

Merry Macarons !

MeiMei was the flowergirl at a dear friend's wedding in September and got to be a lil princess for half a day.

This was also the day I had my first taste of a darn good macaron. "The best in Singapore" declared the bride and I cannot agree more !

Inspired ! and what better way than to celebrate Christmas with Merry Macarons !

Who says that you can't have yummilicious macarons and soapilicious ones too ?

HoHoHo ... Merry Macarons !!
