Review: Apple Blossom Wovens Soulshine Cream

Apple Blossom Wovens Soulshine Cream

  • 80% cotton, 20% hemp
  • $$
  • machine woven
  • Best for: heavier babies
  • Carries: I would assume all

I saw this ring sling up for sale in the BST (buy/sell/trade group) on Facebook for an amazingly low price and I had to have it. I love Apple Blossom Wovens and I’ve been wanting to try out their hemp with Tot. He’s been getting bigger and heavier and I’ve heard that hemp is perfect for toddlers so I jumped at the chance to get it.

This was a conversion done by Cozy Cuties, LLC and it was pretty nice. They did their hybrid shoulder and it was comfortable. I was a fan. It was cushy and it capped my shoulder well. There wasn’t too much fabric, I wasn’t overwhelmed by it at all.

This ring sling was so easy to get Tot up in. It feels a lot thinner than the other blends that I’ve tried with ABW. I think it’s the marvelousness of the hemp. It’s solid and doesn’t stretch at all. It goes through the rings wonderfully and just stays put. I feel like it molded well to our bodies, as you can see in the photos below. It made a great seat underneath Tot’s bottom and around my shoulder.

At first, it was a bit of a work out before it was broken it, but once it broke it – it was a dream.  The hemp made it feel like it was a bit of a workhorse – it took just a bit more time for it to break in than one of ABW’s cotton wraps, but it wasn’t a chore at all. It felt almost a little scratchy, but not too bad at all.

As always, here are some macro shots. I feel like you can definitely see the texture in these. Hemp had a different texture that I wasn’t quite familiar with, but grew to like. It’s almost fuzzy. I feel like the impurities are what makes it fun. The texture really helped with the grip. There was no slipping at all, through the rings. I did quite a few back carries with this ring sling and there was no sagging. It was good on our grocery shopping trips.

Aren’t the colors of this wonderful? I love what ABW comes up with. It’s so pretty. I love looking at the weave. I love seeing what makes a wrap a wrap. The different threads are all woven in different patterns, but that makes one big pattern. I can’t wait to see what Apple Blossom Wovens comes out with next!

  • Running towards the weekend, like... 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️ Little Miss Dumpling is always on the go & she’s so fast. Sometimes I can’t keep up 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
What are your plans for the weekend?⁣

  • Anyone carry around their hair stylist on their back? No? Just me?⁣

This @2lambie reverse onbuhimo is our favorite when we go grocery shopping. Dumpling is high enough where she can see everything, but not quite touch anything. ⁣

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistilling’s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. It’s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.⁣
⁣
The brown sugar flavor is amazing with that bit of light sweetness. It really helps pull in those favors in cocktails. We made a Blackberry Smash (blackberries have been on sale since it’s season!) and a Rickey (who doesn’t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.⁣

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad
  • I would love to be a @magnatiles brand rep! It’s one of the toys that work for all the ages and my kids get along so well when they’re playing with them. I have three kiddos - Birdie (8), Tot (4), and Dumpling (1). We reside in the SF Bay Area of California.  #2019mtbrandrep
  • It’s a new blog post! I reviewed @rabbitholehandwovens Radiant Rose up on the blog ✨ it’s magical! And we were so sad to see it go. ⁣

  • Checking out the local park during Labor Day weekend. It was hot ☀️ but so much fun to just walk around and hang out.⁣

Also shout out to @gleafulpresets - this picture was dark and almost unusable. 😂 now it’s one of my favorite shots.⁣

  • I’ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. I’ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdie’s scars from boo-boos over the summer & they work AMAZING! They keep your skin so moisturized and the scars have been fading nicely over time. My tattoos are looking nice and bright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you @dermae for gifting me these products! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
