i’m heading off on european holiday! more on that to come tomorrow, but for now i wanted to share my hostess gift of the moment. these soaps by nesti dante are true works of art. they come straight from florence, italy (swoon!) where their natural ingredients are handcrafted, blended with tuscan perfumes and then wrapped in florentine paper. i love that their company motto is not to be the biggest, but to be the best. at less than $10 a pop these soaps will make the perfect little thank yous for the myriad of portuguese family that will be putting the fiance and i up over the next week and a half. they can be stuck in a lingerie drawer in lieu of a sachet or in a basket in the guest bathroom just for looks. nesti dante is widely available everywhere from beautyhabit.com to amazon. bon voyage!
