Milk.










A luxurious and soothing essential.

Whether it be for cooking, baking or bathing, milk can be very beneficial. Not only does it strengthen your bones and supply you with much-needed calcium, it also helps to smooth and exfoliate your skin. In fact a "milk bath is nothing but a regular bath, with milk added to it. But, it is has been the age-old secret of beautiful and glowing skin. Milk bath is mainly famous for its association with the legendary beauty Cleopatra, who is considered to be one of the most beautiful women of the history. It is believed that Cleopatra used to submerge herself in a bath of milk and honey regularly, and this was believed to have been the secret behind her soft and radiant skin." To read more into the benefits and for a few tips and how-to's, click here. It is veritable that our skin craves a little extra care and attention during the cooler months of the year. A little effort goes a long way—indulge in a soothing bath and some wonderful products and enjoy...

  18. Beautiful post and a nice idea. My daughter's allergic to milk though so it can also be an absolute nightmare!

  19. Wonderful post and colors! I've never taken a milk bath, but look forward to one when I'm in a place with a proper bath someday within the next year :)

    I've been reading so much about milk these days too (in a breastfeeding way). Evidently breast milk is even a good cure for sore nipples when one starts the journey of breast feeding!

  22. Two things:

    1) I want to be blonde.
    2) I hate milk.

  26. I love the word "milk." Hahah, I know that sounds silly, but I do - for all the reasons why, you've pointed out here.

    Lovely images - they create such an atmosphere.

    P.S. I also love the word "lunch." Hah!
