The responses were amazing! I am so glad that you guys shared your favorite scents when it comes to soaps. We have four winners and I have to say that I truly wish that I had more to provide you but each of you will receive a very fragrant bar of soap. I will contact you this weekend to get your mailing addresses. For those that didn't win or have yet to visit Mistral Soaps, check the site out and their soap for the week which is only $6 (as opposed to $8) is Milk, pictured here! I also agree that with the holidays coming up, yes we have to begin thinkin about them, I will definitely make some baskets from goodies on this site.
And now for our winners which I also loved checking out their blogs/site as well: Cindy S, Anna (of Shoe Smitten Blog), Nicole and Juliet (of JulRe Designs)!

Anytime I am stumped on a drink or simply want to try something completely new, I head over to Cocktail Times.com to see what amazing beverage they have! Today, I was on the hunt for something exotic and as always, they didn't disappoint! I introduce to you the Gvine Orchid! Not only does this look refreshing with the orchids being included within this drink that's perfect for the summer time or for a vacation but I love that it includes Champagne and also grapefruit juice. The citrus blend of this drink is definitely a refreshin thing! Below, I have included the recipe, let me know if you enjoyed this.
- 1 1/2 oz G'vine gin
- 1 1/2 oz pink grapefruit juice
- 1/2 oz elderflower syrup
- 1 1/2 oz Brut Champagne
Put the pink grapefruit juice, the elderflower syrup and gin in a shaker, add ice, shake and serve in a high ball glass. Before pouring the drink into the highball, add the Champagne so that it mixes with the rest of the ingredients. Garnish it with an orchid if available.
