PBSW has their Yuletide Winter collection out sans candles (http://paintboxsoapworks.com/new-limited-edition/2020-yuletide-winter-limited-editions/) that are coming soon. Is there anything you'd like? Also any scents you'd like as candles when they come out?
These all sound lovely! Black Twig and Sozzled especially for the winter collection. GTFO and Halcyon generally.
If you like incense what type to you use? Stick/cone/loose?
I usually go with sticks, but cones are also ok!
Do you have a favorite animal?
Snakes! And badgers (both the British and the American ones). Owls, frogs, foxes, lizards, too.
Would you like gloves/mittens/scarf/winter hat?
I like scarves!
Do you prefer loose tea or bagged?
Either is wonderful!
Would you be interested in trying out anything from Nocturne Alchemy Lab? (http://nocturnealchemy.com )
Most of their blends look a little resin-heavy, which generally isn't my thing. But anything I don't wear, I can use in some other way!
Would you like a batch of home-made bath salts? (if you have allergies / skin sensitivities, rest assured, I can make them with pure epsom salts and pure essential oils- just tell me what you'd like - or what to avoid)
Who doesn't love bath salts! My only sensitivity is cinnamon (I can use it in perfume oils, but not bath products).
3. Anything catch your eye from Dandelion Chocolate? (https://store.dandelionchocolate.com/pages/home)
All of these look great! Secret is, I'm a huge slut for fancy chocolate.
4. What's a thing you always tell yourself you're going to get just for you but haven't yet? Name one thing under $10 and one thing over $10
Probably one of those little travel watercolor sets for over $10. For under $10, probably candies 🤣 (I love airheads, sweettarts, etc.), but I rarely buy them for myself.
What's your favorite type of chocolate? (milk, white, dark, with nuts, with fruit, flavored chocolate, etc.)
I love dark chocolate. With fruit, nuts, fun flavorings, etc. I like milk chocolate. I don't like white chocolate very much at all.
How do you feel about stationery? (letter sets, stickers, pens, etc.)
I love stickers, fun paper, and letter sets! I don't like typically cute/kawaii things. My style runs more in the vein of cottagecore/dark academia.
Thoughts about lovely bespoke cleansing scrubs a la Sugar Spider (https://sugarspider.shop/) or PBSW sorbets?
Those both sound wonderful! A lot of the PBSW scents sound lovely. A bespoke scrub intrigues me! Briarberry, coconut ash, supernova, and devil's food all sound pretty. So does their fall scent "pinup pumpkin."
How about literary writing gloves?
This isn't something I'd have much of a use for.
Tokidoki, anyone? Other cute kawaii goodness? Plushies, blind boxes, etc?.
Since I live in Japan, I'm not really in need of anything kawaii.
Fun cloth masks? Holiday themed or no? Favorite style?
I've got plenty, so I don't necessarily need more.
Journals or Sketchpads or Sketchbooks - yay or nay?
Maybe a watercolor paper pad, but other than that, no, thank you.
Face masks (like the kind that come one to a package?
I have plenty already, so no, thank you.
Anything from Sock Dreams?
Nothing that sticks out to me.
