Last day for cupcake soaps!

poorandpretty etsy shop closing

The end is nigh, my friends! Today is the very last day you can place an order in my Etsy shop. Load your bathroom up with your favorite Cupcake Soaps, stock your freezer with Coco Balms and Coco Body Balms (they keep better that way ;), and grab as many Jars of Frosting as you can. Everything is 25% off; no coupon code needed. ♥


Closing time: Goodbye, Etsy; hello world!

MAA Craft Fair P&P booth

We’ve certainly had an amazing run, but at the end of the month, I will be closing up my Etsy shop, and will no longer sell my cupcake soaps, jars of frosting, coco balm, or coco body balm.

Though I have loved making and selling my cupcake soaps and bath & body goodies for the past three years, it has been challenging to balance this with my blog, career, and personal life. I am beginning to work on some very exciting personal projects that I hope will help me along my path of future self-employment, and I can’t wait to dedicate more time to them. This also frees up more time for me to work on creating more quality content for the blog!

My Etsy shop will be open for the remainder of February, and everything is 25% off — no coupon code needed.

Thank you so much for your support these past three years — here’s to an exciting 2014, full of possibilities!

P.S. The above photo was from my very first craft fair in 2011. It feels like it was yesterday. :)


Recipe: Citrus Sans Basil Cupcakes + Giveaway!


For our second monthly cupcake recipe {last month was Bahama Mama, remember?}, Suzi and I took inspiration from my Citrus & Basil cupcake soap. We consider ourselves to be pretty good in the kitchen, but even we couldn’t think of a way to combine citrus and basil into a cupcake without it tasting strange. So, we skipped the basil and went wholly citrus {truthfully, we were going to add it as a garnish, but our grocery store was out of fresh basil!}.


Oh, and, you can win your very own Citrus & Basil cupcake soap, too! Details at the end of the post!
