Let's Talk Soap

The soap in the image above can be found here and here.

When I was around eleven, there was a little shop not too far from my house that sold all kinds of soap. I had a full fledged babysitting job at that point and those little sweetly packaged soaps were about all I could afford. It made me feel so grown up to walk into that shop, and purchase special soaps for my mom, grandma or myself.

The other day I was looking through a box of items I had stored away from my childhood, I hadn't opened that box in probably 15 years, and there I found some of those soaps. I know that sounds rather sad, that I had saved those pretty soaps like some tragic Oliver Twist moment, but when you are young and babysitting for quarters - pretty soaps are for smelling, touching and most certainly not using. Luckily, I have managed to earn more than just quarters these days, but my love for sweetly packaged soap has not changed.

You can find these here and here.

Pictured above is the lovely company hand in hand, by purchasing one of their soaps they will donate a bar to help save a child's life. Learn more here.

I've also been loving these DIY soap tutorials here and here. And yes, that is the Titanic and its famous iceberg pal made out of soap
