What is elegance? Soap and Water! ~ Cecil Beaton (1904-1980)

It is true - soap is elegance, especially when Shari of Merriweathers, Inc. creates her fanciful (not to mention all natural) soap and beauty concoctions. 

Made with vegetable oils, herbs, and essential oils, the soap from Merriweathers is downright luxurious. Shari offers a variety of beauty products from creams and bath salts to colognes and cosmetics. All smell amazing and your skin will beg for more! 

Yes, that's right. Shari makes a "Gin & Tonic" soap. Talk about a little slice of heaven! 

I caught up with Shari at the White Plains Farmers Market and we chatted briefly about her products and her cute little boutique in Rhinebeck. Shari had some great ideas for her soaps: 
  • Include the soap in a "Hudson Valley" themed bags for your out-of-town guests.
  • Place a Margarita-scented soap in a margarita glass as favors for a bridal shower. 
  • Order custom-made soaps for wedding favors. 
  • Use as great bridal party "thank you" gifts. 

Have I mentioned that I have a thing for nice soap? Some women must have Manola Blahniks and Jimmy Choos. I love nice soap (and canvas tote bags and travel mugs -it's my weakness). And now I have Merriweathers to indulge myself.
