Hello lovely people. So the awaited results of the Lí Ban Ireland competition. Thank you kindly for your patience. I hadn't banked on my boiler breaking down and interfering with my time schedule.

First things first, just to say I used '' random line picker. Also, I enetered each persons name for the amount of times they qualified for. This depended on how many of the five steps each participant followed.

Drum roll........
....... and the winner is......
......... Emma Frost.

Now, for a surprise twist. As this is Lí Ban Ireland's first blog competition and there was 5 steps to follow, I've decided to add a couple of little runner up places.
So the results using random line picker were as follows:

1. Emma Frost
2. Amy Moore
3. Celine Blacow

If the 3 winners could kindly send me their postal details via message, I will get these out to you ASAP.

Many thanks to those that participated and took the time play. :)

Easter Break

Back to work....

After a lovely 10 day break down in the lovely Brittas Bay, Co. Wicklow, Ireland, I am trying to get back into work mode. It's not easy....
The weather was great (for Ireland), the sun was out, the beach was quiet and the seals back for a new season.
Good weather, good food and awesome family and friends. All in all, a great break.

I love these little beauties. I walk down to the beach every morning and they 'swim' in to greet me. We spend a while just watching each other, sometimes a very long while, then part company and on with the day ahead.

Loads more pics here ...!/hannigan.rose/photos
I probably took about 1000 or more pics, but couldn't upload them all. :)

During the week, I promise I will be back in proper work mode. So watch this space, I will run a little competition. The answer to the question that will be asked is in this blog post. The prize will be a ... SURPRISE. I know, that's a bit mean. But of course it will include a gorgeous handmade soap.

It felt like it was taking forever for our lovely new addition to cure, but has been so worth the wait.
Indulgence is a lovely rich creamy bar, made with sweet almond oil, decadent cocoa butter, organic shea butter, goats milk, kaolin and silk. It has a beautiful complex and tenacious essential oil blend.
The essential oil blend combines rich earthy notes (Indonesian Dark Patchouli) with fresh sweet citrus notes, layered with green, wood and floral accents also. It's truly divine. Indulgence got it's name purely because it is a very indulgent complex combination of essential oils.
