It’s Cold Outside..

September 12, 2010 6 comments

Daylight in the UK ending at around 8pm at the moment, suddenly noticed it’s got flipping freezing too. Cannot believe it’s as late as September. This summer has gone so quick, and as usual our summer ended around June time, just average days without much heat.

Had a odd summer, have been single for many years and recently started wondering if I should actually be with someone, having my doubts about it, but certainly more open to meeting a new man. Miss having someone around, miss missing someone. Really started to change thinking differently about lots of aspects to my life.

Felt guilty not posting on here, haven’t bought as many different products last two months, had awful experience with one company, put a whipped soap on my skin, within 30 seconds my entire chest and arms looked like I had been out in the sun for 10 days solid. Was burnt .. BIG time.

Been buying lots of Haus Of Gloi, still 100% addicted to their products, only Elevenses is the one scent I’m not keen on, but then I don’t like tea smells. Been buying all the limited edition and Reverie products. Will do a review of the Halloween items that should be on my doorstep in the next day or two I hope.

Anyone who stills read this say Hi, have noticed I’ve had a lot of hits but have really struggled recently posting anything anywhere. Even Facebook friends are asking where I have been!!

The Morbid The Merrier ~ Halloween

September 2, 2010 1 comment

This is my second purchase from Lysa’s The Morbid The Merrier Etsy shop. Had to take advantage of some new Halloween products also buying a couple of things I’ve been eyeing up.

Like the first order everything came lovingly wrapped up in tissue and ribbons. Was so excited opening them, they were wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure no damage.

Ordered the Halloween Geist Candy Apple Lip Balm. Described as

Crisp tart apple + sticky, slightly spicy, gets-stuck-in-your-teeth candy coating.

Spot on, spicy apple. Never really too keen on lip balms, but this hasn’t left my side all day, have re-applied (not really needed to but just love it) again and again and again. It’s gorgeous. Really soft and moisturising. Got to buy more of this.

Also bought the Halloween Saucy Jack Perfume Oil Well priced at £12, really wasn’t too sure what this would be like described as :

Saucy Jack: Deep, dark, and resinous… redolent of stained and tattered petticoats, damp brick, and spilled blood in a London alleyway….

Had to buy this, love the Victorian era, and proud of London (live less than an hour away) cannot describe what notes this contains, but it’s feminine, and really beautiful. Not too strong, you won’t scare anyone away with a over-powering scent, would like to say it’s slightly flowery. Hmm.. not too sure. Whatever it is I like it.

Dessert Absinthe Solid Perfume costs $4.50 and comes in a roll-on container like a lip balm. lighter than the original absinthe scent TMTM offers. Described as:

Upon opening, the first notes are lemon, sugar, and anise – very reminiscent of a lemon sugar cookie. After wearing it for just a few minutes, however, the bottom notes emerge… woodsy, earthy, mysterious, and alluring.

Not over-powering, smells like a cake to me that needs some cream poured over it, yummy scent. Not a sexy scent like the Saucy Jack one, more of a comforting smell that will be nice in the upcoming winter months.

Natali Solid Perfume is the more subtle of the scents I ordered, smells just like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. A little faint, but pleased it is, chocolate scents can be a little too much on my skin, so it’s nice to have to sniff my arm rather than have a constant scent bothering me.

Described as:

Natali is a brooding yet comforting blend of sweet, spicy orange and dark, fragrant chocolate with a heart of vanilla and wood.

Overall, loved the Halloween pieces the most, have to buy the other products being offered for limited edition too. This is my fave company after Haus Of Gloi. And in my opinion should be right up there in the top Etsy sellers list. There’s samples in the shop, no doubt you’ll love everything to buy bigger sizes.  A must buy for sure.
