Queen Bee apothecary has reopened on Etsy - and they have a code for 10% off with code HALLOWEEN10, no order minimum.  They have a huge catalog of products and have mini and sample sizes for most of them.  The listings are not organized that well but the products sound pretty good and there are full ingredient listings for most products.  I made a small order which included a sample size of vegan deodorant - I've been looking for a new brand and Bunny Butt, which is the other brand I know of that makes a similar product, only offers full sizes at $15.  The sample size I got from Queen Bee was $3.50.  Their shipping is also reasonable, starts at $2.50 and goes up depending on weight.  They also have perfumes and skincare products, all of which look very affordably priced.  This is my first order with them, I'll update you guys when I get it  :)

I think the point is that overall the box will be much cheaper compared to getting them all separately. Also you'll still have to pay shipping. It might be cheaper if you only want one or two items, but if you want everything from the sub it will be more expensive piecemeal.

 

Considering how many unopened items I have from my other indie subs, I know I would rarely, if ever, want the whole month if I ordered them separately.  And part of the appeal of subs to me has always been the exclusivity factor.  I guess she is still only selling the items for a short period of time (15th-end of month) but it takes some of the thrill of succeeding at the hunt away.

Yeah perhaps. I think it's a good move though after she was only going to do 25, and pretty much everyone but her realized that wasn't enough. And even with the 70 it sold out in what 20 minutes? I will wait to reserve judgement until it gets here, but I think it's going to be a great value. I will probably want everything in it, so it's good for me. But if you end up wanting one of the items from HW and one from LE, that's $9 in shipping right there. So I think even if you don't like everything in the box, the rest will be good gift/trade material, and still a good value if you only like a few of the items.

Awesome!  It gives me the vibe of Cocoa Pink, but less foodie, in sexier packaging and better prices  :D

For me, I was pleased HW was up so early. I get up at 5 am, so when NM VC has went up at 11pm, I'm asleep (and unless it's Mac LE, I don't set an alarm for make up). I think that there is a good time that works for everybody...some people get up at o'dark thirty, some people work the night shift.

 

As for the time here, my MUT is on PST...not sure if I can change that?

I agree.  I work at night so I always tend to miss the release of things that are midday.  If I woke up for them there would be no hope for me falling back to sleep.   

 

As for the time settings I just fixed mine today.  If you go to 'my settings' its on the first page there.  Just make sure you click save at the bottom of the page  :)

Add me to the list of people who would rather stay up until 3am than get up at 6am for a release. :P Not that I have to stay up that late often, being Pacific Time, but early mornings? No. Just no. Do not want.

 

But yeah, there is never going to be one time that works for all people, so I mean if there is something I want bad enough I will get up at five, or six or whenever it need be. It's not just makeup, either. I've gotten up at 3am after being in Disneyland until midnight so that I could be in a good spot in line for a sale. And boy howdy that was some $h!t and I didn't get what I wanted, but I got some things so that was enough.

 

As much as it sucks to go to the lengths and then not get the prize, there will be a next time. :flowers:  And here's hoping that next time everyone gets everything on their wishlists! (I'm looking at YOU, Haus of Gloi restock. You're next.)

Their stuff looks awesome, but the shipping kind of throws me off. I know it's because the items are kind of heavy, but for three things the shipping was $6.50. That's not terrible, but I don't know if I can do it!

It might be a shipping thing similar to Alchemic Muse, I would try asking her how much shipping is and if she refunds any excess that was paid.

From Life's Entropy regarding the HW box (via reddit):

For those who missed out the first box: On November 15, Christine and I will sell all the individual items in the box on our respective sites (HW items on hers, LE on mine). While it is more of a hassle, you can still get the items from the box so you won't be missing out on much! :)

 

This made my (HORRIBLE, AWFUL, NO GOOD, VERY BAD) day so much better, thank you!

It must be what you are ordering? I have 6 things in my cart and shipping is 4.80.

I wanted a set of shampoo and conditioner, and then detangler. Shipping for the shampoo and conditioner alone is $5.75. I guess they're heavy?

Oh that explains it. I've noticed from playing with PayPal shipping that once you get over 1lb the shipping really spikes. It's like that's the magical weight they decided becomes more work for the postal workers.

I think 13 oz. is usually where it sizes out of First Class Package territory and into required Priority Mail. That's what I've discovered shipping stuff on ebay.

Yeah, it winds up being over a pound of stuff, so that must be where the shipping increase comes from. I get it, but I hate paying it. LoL

Erk. Espionage is rolling out a fandom bath and body line on Black Friday. Dunno what's in it, but I'm already expecting a major financial hit.

HoG restock stuff I ordered on the 27th already shipped today! So I think the turnaround time is pretty exaggerated, as in "it could take this long in extreme circumstances"

For anyone wondering about HOG butter bombs, I just took a marshmallow bath. It was amazing. Fun to crumble and very fragrant. Not a ton of bubbles but I think the bubbles were like melting into my skin as moisturizer. Good stuff!!

Ohhhh my grisly Grimoires are waiting for me at home! I needed it too. I have a core review tomorrow (gallery show in front of the whole art department that basically says I can get a degree or not in art) so I am uber stressed out and any little distraction from stress is needed!

Double post sorry. However I hope she combined my other order together. I ordered the COTM separately when buying a Wadsworth backup.

    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books. 
    • HEY! You dont seem fat to me. I believe you look wonderful. But still if it feels like you need to loose weight then i can give you some easy tips: You should go on a calorie deficit diet. Also start intermittent fasting that is eating only for 7 to 8 hours a day just. I know you dont like working out. But try doing something what you like in order to boost this process. A walk or dance or playing a sport etc. Its up to you completely but just give it a thought. And last one PATIENCE. This is the smallest required by all but the tuffest to follow . This weight loss wont just happen in a day. It may take time. That may be long too but you need to keep yourself focused in order to achieve what you want so YOU SHOULD KEEP GOING. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR JOURNEY!
