I always get melancholy when summer's over. Shorter daylight hours mean less time for outdoor activities. Fortunately some soapmaking classes hosted by Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Company helped take the sting out of saying goodbye to summer. Our special guest instructors were Amanda Griffin of Lovin Soap and Holly Port of Lotion Bar Cafe.
In the first class I attended, Amanda and Holly showed us how to make soap cupcakes, salt bar smoothies, and soap lattes.
After class, a New York City Beauty Meetup was held for industry professionals at Calle Ocho.
The next morning, Amanda and Holly showed us how to do a peacock swirl, hearts, and flowers.
A very special thank you to everybody's favorite Teaching Assistant, Angela Carillo of Alegna Soap.
