  • About Me
    I am absurd. And random. And unrepentently dorky. I obsess over ridiculous things, like chalkware owl lamps from the 1970s and dancing pseudo-celebrities. I find it hard to balance my pursuits, throwing myself headfirst into things that inspire me, infuriate me, or simply make me smile. I am notoriously frugal, scouring sales and clipping coupons. I'll lament about paying $1.50 for a bottle of laundry detergent, then turn around and pay $20 for shampoo because omg! I need it! #priorities I like to cook. And bake. And make pretty cakes.

  1. It seems like maybe this round of the swap is finished.
  2. I have the box. It'll probably be towards the end of the week before I can get it sent back on its way. Is everyone up for another round?
  3. I'm not on the list of people that gets products for review, but today I randomly received the blanc doux sunscreen from the Wine & Cheese box. I don't remember entering any contests of anything. I'm so confused!
  4. A quick reveal because I have a terrible cough and feel pretty wretched. Thanks to the lovely @@MissRoe for the gifts!
  5. My gift from @@MissRoe is here! Reveal coming soon.
  6. These reveals have been amazing! All the gifts have been so thoughtful.
  7. Sorry for the slow response. I've been down for the count with a terrible cold. On top of that, I was somehow convinced to photograph a wedding. Eek! Glad the box arrived safely and you enjoyed the contents.
  8. Same issue! I was looking that the stuff I have and it just looks like...not much at all! I'm going to do a mini shopping run today to see if I can find a few extras to throw in. I really want to get my box in the mail on Monday!
  9. Still waiting on two final gifts to show up. It seems like shipping is so slow! I'm starting to get nervous, even though I placed the orders in plenty of time. I'm ready to get this stuff wrapped, packed up, and sent on its way. To my Santa, please feel free to ship at any time. I have no holiday travel plans.
  10. Thank you so much. They have tea tree and mint, which is aces because I have dermatitis. Ordering the small container now to try it out.
  11. I got the test tubes as well. I know I got purples because I was thrilled @@Deareux is making vegan shadows. I'm allergic to carmine and it seems like every time I see a beautiful purple on an indie site, it almost always has carmine. Sometimes I just want to throw caution to the wind and wear them anyway, but itchy, puffy eyelids are not cute on anyone. Since people were mentioning Lush, does anyone know of any indie company that makes salt shampoo? I've been using Big shampoo for about 5 years, but I'd love to find something else to try. I tried one from an etsy seller a few years ago, but it was too moisturizing for my hair. I can't even remember the company, just that it was in a blue tub.
  12. Thanks, ladies. She seems to be doing much better at the nursing home, better than she was at the hospital. They are hopefully she'll get to return home with some rehabilitation. The box is packed up and ready to go. I'll drop it at the post office in a little bit. Tracking number sent to @gingerneko. There was so much stuff. I had trouble getting it packed in. I did end up removing a soap and lotion that I couldn't fit back in, but those were things I'd added in the beginning, so I assumed no one probably wanted them anyway. Took Out: Added:
  13. The box will be back on the move tomorrow. I apologize for the delay. I'd hoped to get it out yesterday or today, but I haven't even had the chance to really go through it. My grandmother fell and broke her shoulder and has been in the hospital for the past few days. She's not a surgery candidate, so they moved her into the nursing home last night.
  14. I'm always terribly behind in posting reviews, but I do it anyway. People still read them. I still haven't reviewed my Global #15, which is next on my list.
