tuesday giveaway! heavenly handmade soap by cypress lake soap

“sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.”
– st. thomas aquinas
let’s play for another giveaway, shall we?

after a long week or a not-so-good day, nothing rejuvenates us more than a warm, fragrant bath. and my love affair with baths has allowed me to be an enthusiast of all sweet scented bath items – soaps especially.

and a few weeks ago, i was delighted to purchase a few heavenly soaps from cypress lake soap’s charming shop. their lemon basil is my absolute favorite…but the other delicious scents – lavender, orange eucalyptus, mojito to name a few – are tough to beat.

so for this week’s giveaway prize, cypress lake soap has graciously offered one lucky silver lining reader {1} soap of their choice!
