Does anyone know what size/form the Alchimia Apothecary perfume sample sizes are?  I was looking at blog reviews and saw vials, mini drams, big drams, mini rollerballs (cute!) and none of them specified which size they ordered.

Well hopefully the new scents will perk you up! Anything with "freshly smoked bacon" sounds very intriguing! :)

 

Not indie related but the other day we were at Yankee Candle and smelling the "man candles". My hubby liked Football Season (or whatever it was) and the Fresh Cut Grass, but he recoiled in horror when I made him smell Bacon. He thought it was disgusting, but I thought that it smelled like Bac-O-Bits, although very strong.

 

We both agreed, however, that the Brewski candle smelled like someone had gotten too drunk and then vomited. Seriously, if you ever get to smell it, do so. It is foul. :lol:

The full size collection are 5mL each, the sample collection is sample vials at ~1.5mL. :)

 

Edit: Wait are you talking about the ones from the Grimm Collection in this thread, or different samples from them? Because other samples I don't know. :x

I preordered the NM GG and then 2 days later I placed another order. I haven't received the 2nd order yet but I noticed that some people on Fb had their other order in with their GG. I wonder if they just ordered them with the GG at the same time and that's why? Or... Maybe I'm just impatient. I noticed they changed the TAT 2 days after I ordered.

Last year for Thanksgiving they had Thanksgiving food scented candles. The "Turkey and Stuffing" candle was quite possibly one of the worst smells ever. It was like someone left a thyme-rubbed turkey out in the sun for several days.

You're all such enablers!! I just made three orders for places that weren't even on my radar!!!

 

 

Today was a GREAT mail day. I received:

 

3 Sephora boxes 

1 Ulta box

1 Nordstrom box

 

AND MOST IMPORTANT

 

1 HoG order (yaaaaay- I still wish I had gotten my hands on Ghost Puffs hair oil & whipped soap. I WILL NEVER BE OVER THIS!!)

 

1 GIANT Dawn Eyes Cosmetics order- SO FAST. She's also so friendly. I'm a big fan.

 

1 Shiro order- *eating candies that accompanied it now*

 

1 Life's Entropy order

 

1 Super secret order 

 

Let's just say it was a great day for both myself AND my elfie.

My free samples from my HoG order were Ghost Puffs and Eggnoggin! Eggnoggin smells soooooo good! I will definitely be needing a pumpkin butter of it. Ghost puffs isn't my favorite but in glad I got to try it.

I got lucky with my bf. All I have to do is say I like a certain smell a lot and he'll just give in and wear it. I got him into wearing lotion...maybe I'll have to order something from HoG for him. Do they even have scents now that leans toward the masculine side?

From the GC:  Haus Amber, Apocathery, Picaroon, and maybe Satyr depending on how the dude feels about Creamsicles.  Amber, vetiver, Bay rum, and sandalwood are solidly unisex -- if not straight-up masculine -- notes, and I think the "blackened" note in Satyr is vetiver, which pulls it over to guy-friendly.  In the Yule release, Snow Wolf looks solidly dudefume.  Three Treasures, Wintervale, and Rosy Cheeked have unisex potential.

I still have 2 outstanding VD orders from September. Does anybody else? And is this the appropriate venue to politely vent or should I just sit quietly and look at my other pretties? Lol.

I still have one outstanding order. I've been in contact with her about it. I have received new tracking and a picture of the package but the tracking hasn't updated. :(

Still no July order. She sent me a PM 4 days ago asking me if I want a refund instead. I take that to mean it's still not done. I said no. I want my damn order.

I got the SMOKEWOOD APIARY PERFUME - Smoked Honey, Creamed Honey, Beeswax, Amber, Wooden Frames, Ginger & Vanilla (full size) and for my free sample - GIBBON'S BOARDING SCHOOL PREMIUM

 

If I like the smokewood - I will probably go back for the Burnishing Glace

I was so, so close to making a Solstice Scents order but decided that since I basically like pretty much the same thing in all perfumes, I don't need to order a different company's version of the same song and dance.  :( I;m sad, but holding the thought of HoG Yule tight to keep me going, LOL.

 

ETA: And my Hello Waffle Catssic Literature order came today! OMG the jars are so cute with their jar art (Edgar Allan Prrr is my favorite. Soo cute!)  and the sample of It's A Catastrophe is gorgeous! Christine was super kind and sent the sample anyways, even though I am a dingbat who removed an item from my cart at the last minute and didn't realize I didn't meet the $25 minimum anymore. I can't wait to wear these, and I will try to take swatch pictures later, when I take the covers off the sifters!

I'm holding off on all "scent" items, until I see how much I can snag from HoG. Solstice Scents has some great sounding scents, as does Alchemic Muse (she posted her scents on Facebook...I'd add them, but I'm on my cell currently). Anyway, I hope I have lots of luck with HoG! :D

Okay, so my hubby works tonight but he is Irish on his biological dad's side, so he likes to celebrate Irish traditions which means I am making soda bread for All Saint's Day even though he won't be home at dinnertime. ALL THAT to say while I was waiting I edited a lovely (ha ha) swatch of the Catssic Literature colors I got. Below the cut, with my thoughts.

I am LOVING Hisster Prynne and The Great Catsby (which has a lovely green duochrome that my crappy cell camera didn't pick up, as usual). I thought Edgar Allan Prrr was supposed to have a shift as well, but I don't see it at all? Or I could have been mistaken. It certainly has ton of sparkle! It also has my favorite of the label art, look at that little raven on his head! :wub: P&P was purchased solely on principle, being one of my favorite books. Not my favorite color and one I won't wear often, but how cute is it? :D

 

Favorite though? It's a Catastrophe. It is redder than my camera picked up, with a gorgeous sheen - just the kind of color I reach for on a daily basis. I am so, so happy I was able to get that one! But based on these guys I will definitely go back for more of the collection, once the Holidays have calmed down!

    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • 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!
