Monoi de Tahiti Shea Salve

What I really need right now is a vacation. Can you relate?  Can you also relate to the utter disappointment you face when you snap back into reality from your daydream to realize that it just Ain’t. Gonna. Happen. I know.  It’s rough.  We’re in this together. That longing of …

Butter Treats
