wishing you a happy thursday and hope you could be having a happy beginning to the new year of 2020 πŸ•Šβ˜ΊοΈ here is a post to share and note a bit about a natural and handmade soap noted to be made with a frangipani and lau ti infusion, made by mailelani samoa a favourite natural beauty care brand who are based in samoa with a beautiful shop (and who could also ship worldwide). the natural soap was a Christmas gift from our dad and my younger sister bid also went to samoa a couple of years ago and bought back a light pink body lotion with the same ingredients (of frangipani and lau ti) and a link to an earlier post about the coconut body lotion (and the first post published up on care natural blog) is here ! i hope the post could be helpful in case you could be hoping to visit samoa soon and maybe go to the mailelani shop, or if you could be hoping to try natural, organic and handmade beauty care and skin care made in the pacific, in beautiful samoa πŸ•ŠπŸŒΈ

strawberry crepes with creme fraiche

wishing you a happy new year for 2020 and hope you had a happy Christmas πŸ•Šβ˜ΊοΈβœ¨ here is a post to share a summer recipe for crepes (a thin and french kind of pancake made in a crepe pan) with fresh strawberries, creme fraiche and lemon honey from a Christmas edition of nz house and garden magazine (2013) πŸ“ i love crepes and strawberries a lot and hope the recipe could be helpful if you could love the ingredients a lot too or could be hoping to try crepes in case you could not of tried them before. i enjoy looking at all of the pictures in the house and garden magazines and reading the articles too, although the recipes are often so nourishing and delicious looking too and with beautiful photos ! i hope the ingredients could also be quite easy to find where you are from, and you could also include another kind of fresh fruit (raspberries, blueberries, peaches, oranges or grapefruit) if you could like too.

A cookie recipe

Here is a post to share a recipe for cookies with chocolate m&ms I made just in December, with some m&ms my younger brother Chris gave me for Christmas πŸ•Š I found the full recipe for the cookies on a beautiful blog called tried and true, and the cookies came out as being so soft, a light gold colour and with a lot of colourful m&ms inside 🌸 please note, although the recipe is not plant based (I often try to post as many natural and plant based recipes as I can, which help to look after and support health and wellbeing) the cookies are so delicious and could be ok in moderation πŸ€— I hope the recipe could also be helpful in case you love cookies a lot too, or could be looking after or babysitting small children who could enjoy doing some baking.
