A facebook connection...

Greetings folks, I hope the evening finds you well. Wednesday night.....what debauchery can you really get up to mid week? Watch a bit of crap T.V in my case - this Wednesday night presents another great episode of Wife Swap USA...Brilliant.
Well, in more interesting news - we finally have a direct connection to Facebook! Yay! Thanks be to my padre for that - good old Ally - he managed to get it all set up so that you can just click the 'like' box on the blog to follow Saville's Row rather than having to go all the way to the facebook page - and now all we need is to actually get people to like us! So please, LIKE US! And Saville's Row will promise to love you forever!!! Also, you'll be the lucky ones to get notifications on discounts and offers so that's always good!
Well, I must dash - I shall leave you to your evening. I am settling in early for the night. Wade and I are going to call an early one and maybe find a nice movie to watch. Sleep Well, Lou xx
Ps. here's some bed time pics for you
My newest snazzy scents in the snazziest of lockets. Beauts xx

Reginald Vox (after Bono) & Saville Row

I just had to post another little something something. Today has been a very productive and good day. The whole of my products and ingredient paraphernalia has been organised and newly homed. The house is spanking clean, and the kids are alright, as some band, which I forget, say. They're defo on the mend. I took some ethereal shots of them just now-
My beautiful boy, Reg
And here's little Savvy...
She is slightly nightmarish, but beautiful all the same. Also, i know it's not exactly a compliment, but there are times when I think she looks a little like the love child of Kevin Rudd and Adolph Hitler. It's the round head and moustache. She's still a beaut.
Anyway, enough bloody cat talk. I've managed to arrange a meeting tomorrow with a particularly splendid shop in the hope that they'll carry my products. Wish me luck!...

Before the Sun goes down

Yesterday, amongst all the other stuff I was doing, I managed to slip down to the printers and finally get some much needed new labels printed up. Those labels included a bunch for my bath salt bottles - which I love. I love the shape of these little beauts, and I love even more the fact that they last for life and can be refilled with salts over and over- a good investment. check out my snazzy new shots - I'm quite proud of these pics!...
What do you think? I caught the last of the sun yesterday evening in a bit of a panic before I lost the light completely. Of course, the bath salts are pretty nice too! There's 3 different scents available in the shop, and this one- Cinder, happens to be my favourite. It's beautiful!
I hope you like them!

Say Cheeeeeeeeeeese

Oh, and here's some action shots of the Saville's Row products in use! Note the satisfactory smile on my face! These are the latest promotional shots for the brand, I don't usually get that excited using my products, not that they aren't exciting and amazing!
Cheesy but necessary. Yummy balms!

Violets & Naughty beasts

Today has been a day so far of organising, cleaning up, and rearranging our bedroom in order to home a newly acquired wardrobe - something I have been pining for for months. So, tremendous fun there. But what was a little fun was getting some beautiful African violets from the Dana Point nursery. They had so many variations and colours, and I finally decided upon some deep fushia coloured fellas to use in my concoctions. Not that the colours of the petals will necessarily have any bearing on the resulting salve that I plan on making, but it'll be nice for me to look at whilst I use it! So, I plan on including a wonderous new salve to the line, that of course will include an infusion of violet. So far, I have only introduced a healing balm to Saville's Row, and have been waiting with excited anticipation to add some salves as I have pages and pages of incredible body salve recipes just waiting to be utilised. It's just a case of waiting for the oils to infuse with all sorts of herbs and flowers, and that can be a timely process. Anyway, suffice to say, we're good to go, so watch this space....
Some of my beautiful violet flowers
And a little infusion in progress...
So, there's the beauties for you. I'm soon to get started on some salves, I would get stuck into it right now if I could, but currently, I write this sitting face up against the window looking up every two seconds to see if one of my cat's has decided to return home. He's not very well, and needs to be kept indoors, but it was such a beautiful day, I thought one hour in the sun would do him good. Now he's taking the piss and has been gone for nearly two hours....I'm in trouble.
Oh well,
Catch you next time, Lou xx

Happy Monday Morning

If I were American, I'd say, 'Happy President's Day'. Seeing as I'm not, 'Happy Monday!'(sounds like a bit of an oxymoron there). Anyway, so, as I greet you on this Monday morning, I find myself happily content with my fruit toast breakfast, and hot cup of Earl Grey.

What's not so delightful is that I did find one of my cats this morning with three quarters of his body in the toilet bowl, licking the water - dirty beast. Although that, in turn, makes me a dirty beast as I kiss him, so, essentially, I'm kissing the toilet water he just licked. Splendid.

Being that today is a bank holiday, Wade (that's the hubby) and I will not be doing much. I have concocted a few more recipes - salves this time, which I would love to start making, but I have to wait a couple of weeks first until my oils have been fully infused with the various herbs I acquired. I have plans to create a deliciously scented violet flower salve with infusions of plantain and tea tree, very beneficial to the skin and senses. With any luck, I'll be able to show you a completed salve soon. In the meantime....

The perfect remedy for dry elbows and hands!

A deliciously Balmy start to the weekend...

Good Morning folks, how was your Friday night? Mine was quiet - a bit of TV, a bit of red wine, but I was kept busy with making up some new lip butter concoctions. Well, I say making up, it was more, improving on a couple of the current products. I now have a 'RESIN' Lip Butter that smells even more potent than before, with an even better edge to it. So this morning will involve a trip down to the printers to top off the completed butters with spanking new labels.

Aside from that, I'm not sure what else this weekend brings, but I'll keep you updated,

Ps. I had to chuck this one in for your entertainment. I know what you're thinking, 'oh no, not a bloody cat picture', but this one's a good 'un. A certain naughty little monster, Reginald Vox, was caught red handed sitting in one of my baskets. Naughty little turd. Meow.

Goodies goodies goodies!

I couldn't help myself! I had to enrich your lives with more visual treats!

Soap making in progress...

Saville's Row would like to make your acquaintance!

Welcome to the first of what will be many snippets of goodness from Saville's Row. All of the delights in my shop are handmade using the best and most splendid ingredients. I will bestoe upon you some of the treasures...

This is what we call 'Vivea' and is a beaut. It's gentle, nourishing, and smells like heaven. yum! I wanted to create a soap that i personally would want to buy, in a package that I would love, so, after mixing a concoction of amazing butters, oils and scents, I dressed my soap up in it's Sunday finest - this particular soap has a coat of beautiful fushia petals picked from the abundance of flora and fauna near my home. The bar also has a little natural blush accredited to a pinch or two of cinnamon. Then, I wanted to package the little fella in something beautiful and eye catching, but something that was a little bit special too - hence the stunning paper wrap and two little pop rivets securing the openings.

And here are some of the latest products added to the line - lip butter pots. These are my new fav. I love these little pots, and the lip balm's pretty good too!

The most eco friendly little vessels you'll ever see! And I concocted 3 different scents, all very unique and splendid! This little guy is called 'Raw Opium' and is as intriguing as it sounds. Think of mystical scents, hookah bars (that's 'hookah') and Moroccan souks and you'll get an idea of the scent.....Mmmmm..

Let me know what you think. Much to do. Today, I want to work on some more labeling and getting the liquid perfume line up and running. Will speak to you anon
