Spa Soap and Magic Milk Straws

A new soap is setting up in my dining room.  It is a spa soap with Himalayan Pink bath salts in the soap. This is the first time that I have used bath salts in soap.  It should look interesting from the added salts, but I also added cranberry seeds to exfoliate and of course shea butter and glitter and color swirling.  I love the anticipation before the soap is cut.  It is like Christmas.  lol 

Himalayan Pink Bath Salts are found in the Himalayan mountains and hand mined.  They are speckled in color and contain 84 trace elements and iron.  The salt is known for it's healing powers which include the folk remedies of stimulating circulation, lowering blood pressure and removing toxins from your body.  (Information from Snowdrift Farms)

Have you seen the new straws that make your milk flavored?  I saw chocolate and strawberry at a convenience store this week.  There are little pieces of a strawberry candy-like flavor that is inside of straws.  The straws are semi-sealed at the top and bottom and allow the candy flavor to come out with the milk each time you drink through the straw.  Weren't they thinking outside of the box?
