So sad that my CC was used fraudulently and that my credit card company has not issued a new card yet so no black Friday shopping for me.  I really want the NM Cermet and Paesh GWP!  I know that all the other black Friday stuff is super limited and the chances of me getting it were slim to none so not sad about that but Cermet and Paesh?  So sad.

You could go buy yourself a prepaid CC and use that.  Or link your Paypal directly to your bank account.

I have a favor to ask from those of you that I sent sample baggies of the Reason to Smile eyeshadow I had made in honor of my daughter.  Sunday will mark four years since she was last alive.  She died at 12:37 on Dec 1.  If you think of it, would you please wear her shadow on either Sunday or Monday in memory of her?  I know it's not quite the season for pinky/peach.  But it's always the season for LOVE!

 

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all of you!

Well, I returned something to the store today and instead of being responsible with that money, I just ordered from NM...minis of The Winchester Gospels and A Dark Christmas Dream collections.  I mean...since it was money from a return, that doesn't count, right???

Uhoh.  The BPAL Yule update is live.  And...  Hide your wallets, credit cards, and PayPal passwords.  And an explanation of the first section:  Victorian Christmases were SPOOKY SPOOKY SPOOKY.  Dickens' _A Christmas Carol_ is, at its core, a ghost story, and that's just one example.  There has been a collection based on spiritualists floating around at Will Calls for sneak previews for a few years now, and I was *convinced* it was eventually going to be a Yule collection because that's just how the Lab rolls, and, well.  Here we go.  I highly recommend going to the Lab's page and reading all of the non-note text that goes with this stuff!  Quotes, history poetry, explanations -- all sorts of interesting stuff, but I'm stripping this down to strictly scent notes.



++ YULE 2014: AN EVENING WITH THE SPIRITS


  • A Measurement of the Soul -- A tactile scent, groaning under the weight of aeons: wild fig, cedarwood, venerable ti leaf, and white sage.

  • Claircognizance -- Absolute and perfect clarity: rockrose, white amber, Corsican immortelle, Siamese benzoin, white sandalwood, and life everlasting.

  • Ectoplasm -- A luminous, viscid blend of white amber, lemongrass, white oakmoss, and davana.

  • Eusapia -- Pale lilacs, white tea, and candle wax.

  • The Fox Sisters -- Deception and despair: rose geranium and tea roses with mahogany wood, bourbon vanilla, and apple peel.
  • Gossips of Ghost Land -- Idle poltergeists and truant phantoms loitering in darkened corners and shadowed hallways: black cedar, patchouli, and tea leaf spiked with a tittering cackle of pink peppercorn, mate, and lime rind.

  • Luminous Phasmatis (Copy) -- A peculiar manifestation of light produced by physical mediums during ectoplasmic séances: otherworldly snaps of ozone glowing with unearthly light.

  • Practical Occultism -- A Victorian occultist’s incense, invoking the Four Archangels: precious wildcrafted Indian frankincense with myrrh, cassia, sandarac, palmarosa, white sage, red sandalwood, elemi, and drops of star anise bound with grains of kyphi.

  • Psychodynamic Discharge -- Repressed rage, terror, and subjugated sexuality erupting through fierce bursts of uncontrollable psychic phenomena: black leather and red musk with aged black patchouli, Chinese rose, black pepper, coconut meat, Haitian vetiver, and igneous red ginger.

  • Spirit Board -- Redwood and bois de rose with white lilac, dried pink roses, and black tea.

  • Table-Turning -- A heavy, tactile scent that thrums with voices from beyond: black polished teakwood, gullies of ectoplasm, and ghostly white musk.

  • Vital Fluid -- The breath and tears and pulse of all life; the fluid that flows through all creation, permeating space and time and spirit: olibanum, red benzoin absolute, labdanum, betel leaf, galbanum, mastic, and angelica.



++ YULE 2014: THE PHOBIAS

The holiday season is a source of joy for many – frolicking in the snow, decking the halls, stringin’ up lights, belting out carols. It is a time for family and good cheer, jolly men in furry red suits, and tales of merriment and miracles.

For others, it is a source of pure terror.

  • Chionophobia -- Fear of Snow.  A suffocating, oppressive white shroud: a fragrance heavy with ice, strangled by damp oakmoss, artemisia, and muguet.

  • Cryophobia -- Fear of Extreme Cold.  Cold – unending, heart-piercing cold – that slices through skin and muscle like a gleaming, razor-edged dagger until it penetrates bone and fills your marrow: white eucalyptus, frosted mint, raw frankincense, davana, iris petal, white grapefruit, and wormwood.

  • Christougenniatiko Dentrophobia -- Fear of Christmas Trees.  Ghastly misshapen branches casting long, twisted shadows and clutching at you with prickly needle-like fingers: pine pitch, bone-white dried fir, and spruce tar with opoponax and blackened tobacco.

  • Deipnophobia -- Fear of Dinner Conversations.  Wine spilled across freshly pressed table linens, a wilted holiday bouquet, and a furtive hint of whiskey and baked bread.

  • Hagiophobia -- Fear of Saints and Holy Things.  The scent of mad piety, blood and martyrdom, soul-crushing guilt, and frenzied devotion: frankincense and myrrh disoriented by labdanum, unsteady yuzu, shredded ginger, black cypress, and Aleppo Pine wood thickened with dragon’s blood resin.



++ YULE 2014: GINGERBREAD COTILLION II

  • Gingerbread Cathedral -- Gingerbread with olibanum, Oman myrrh, Damascus rose resin, and cassia.
  • Gingerbread Dodo -- Gingerbread with red musk, lemon peel, sugar cane, cassia, white sandalwood, mango, and agarwood.
  • Gingerbread Goblin -- Gingerbread with black coconut, patchouli, and sweet benzoin.
  • Gingerbread Lust -- Gingerbread with red musk, patchouli, ylang ylang and myrrh.
  • Gingerbread Sin -- Gingerbread with amber, sandalwood, black patchouli and cinnamon.



++ YULE 2014:

  • Butter Rum Cookie -- Rum-soaked brown butter cookies, crusted with sugar, soaked in almond and garnished with orange rind and pummeled pecans.
Chanukkiyah — Olive oil, beeswax, glowing amber, sweet sufganiyot, pomegranate, and fig.
  • Chocolate Stout Cupcake — Bittersweet chocolate cupcakes whisked with stout and topped with inky dark chocolate frosting.
  • Christmas Pudding - Black Phoenix’s Christmas Pudding is loosely based on a medieval recipe, and is crafted, as tradition dictates, from thirteen ingredients (representing Christ and his apostles, natch). Thick with treacle, smoky with suet (suet accord, sillies – there’s no mutton fat in this perfume!), and sweet with stirred custard.
  • Dumb Cake — This is the scent of an awkward encounter with a Yule-evoked doppelgänger mate: spectral cologne, blurry herbs, fireplace ash, and a dusting of crumbs.
  • Egg Nog — Sweet brandy, dark rum, heavy cream, sugar, and a dash of nutmeg. (Now with extra nog!)
  • El Dia de los Reyes — Hot cocoa with cinnamon, coffee, and brown sugar.
  • Faunalia — Held on December 5th, this is the festival of the Horned God of the Forest, one of the di indigetes of Rome, god of cattle, fertility, wild, untamed nature, and prophecy through dreams. The scent of a thick, The Gacela of the Dark Death — Terebinth pine, pitch, and clove.
  • Gelt — A bounty of chocolate coins! Dry cocoa and golden amber!
  • Haloa — Wine grapes, pomegranate, myrrh, frankincense and olive leaf, and the warm scent of offertory cakes.
  • Hans Trapp — Tattered leather, dry straw, matted hair, sharpened sticks, and a bundle of switches.
  • Hard Cider Cake — A thick, spongy white cake spiked with hard apple cider and frosted with whiskey-laden buttercream.
  • Hot Buttered Rum — Hot buttered rum with a touch of molasses, lightly spiced and swirled with a touch of cream.
  • Krampus -- Be good, or Krampus will toss you in a river! Sinister red musk, black and rust-brown leathers, dusty rags, and wooden switches.
  • Lick It with Consent -- Lick It is back, as minty and sweet as ever, and now you can lick it for a good cause: proceeds from every sale of Lick It With Consent will be donated to RAINN.
  • Mari Lwyd -- Welsh cakes and ale with a smattering of dried lavender.
  • Midnight Mass -- This perfume is a traditional Roman Catholic sacramental incense, most often used during a Solemn Mass. Traditionally, five tears of this incense, each encased individually in wax that has been fashioned into the shape of a nail, are inserted into the paschal candle. This is, of course, represents the Five Wounds of Our Risen Savior. Symbolically, the burning of the incense signifies spiritual fervor, the fragrance itself inspires virtue, and the rising smoke carries our prayers to God.
  • Nuclear Winter -- Annihilation. The ice, desolation and barrenness of nuclear devastation shot through by a beam of radioactive mints.
  • Rose Red -- The perfected winter rose, dew covered and freshly cut.
  • Snow White -- A chilly, bright perfume: flurries of virgin snow, crisp winter wind and the faintest breath of night-blooming flowers.
  • Strawberry Sufganiyot -- A sugar-dusted pile of sufganiyot, trickling bright rivulets of strawberry jelly.
  • Winter-Time -- Sweet, soft snow.
  • Yuletide -- Ripe, bursting, blood red holly berries pricked by sharp, waxy holly leaves.

I'm only planning on taking advantage of the NM 40% off sale. I am going to do a pretty good haul, but I'll wait until Monday.

Good luck ladies with the LE stuff!

Man, I'm already getting jittery for NM!  I've had a weird crow-centric week between the actual crows around my office, powerloading the last season thus far of _Sons of Anarchy_ (about a motorcycle gang sometimes referred to as Crows), marathoning _The Crow_ movie series today, and a whole bunch of weird overlaps between _The Crow_ and _SoA_ (Glasgow smile, Courtney Love, Walt Goggins).  I'm hoping this is the universe making sure I remember to jump on NM as soon as the sale goes live so I can grab the set instead of the universe saying, "Eh, you have had enough crow stuff in your life this week, so you don't really need this set, too."  YES, I DO NEED IT.  I actually meant to suggest it as a VC theme a few months ago but forgot.

 

Also:  OH, WOW, _THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER_ IS ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES I'VE EVER ENDURED.  It's actually kind of breathtaking for bad it is.  I knew this going in, but I'm still kind of amazed.  David Boreanaz's costume is so inappropriate for his build that it makes me laugh pretty much every time I see him.  Edward Furlong makes a cute Goth chick, though.

I'm so excited.  I got the Murder of Crows set from NM!  I feel like I won the lottery!  I'm hoping this doesn't count against my no-buy for SeSa.  I can't wait to try out these colors.  I need more brushes!

I am literally in tears - due a series of unfortunate events, I don't have access to funds. So, no Murder of Crows for me. I'll pick up the free gift and take advantage of the 40% off but I really wanted that set. Oh well, that's life, right? :(

And noticed around midnight eastern that LE and Shiro wouldn't be doing anything until midnight pacific. :( Haha! C'est la vie

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
