Etsy Spotlight: Abbalope Soap

I have been using handmade bar soaps exclusively for almost 6 years now, and I just cannot get enough! I like my soaps to smell reminiscent of the season, but nothing too perfumey (instant headache), and I’ve never been interested in the soaps that smell like desserts.

Purchasing new shirts for myself happens less and less frequently, now in my era of parenthood. (not that there’s any lack of great kids shirts) But as soon as its mom’s turn, I’m gonna be all over these:
