Teeturtle - I do love Halloween shirts, I like the 'Tis the Season and Most Wonderful Time of the Year ones especially XD

Criobru - I don't know... maybe?

Indie Makeup - I know nothing about makeup and don't really wear it so... no real feelings?

Scooby Doo - I don't like it but I don't hate it?

New things this year - Within the last year I got into cross-stitch, Yuri on Ice and translating

K beauty - widely available here and generally not too interested

Hand painted container - Sure, I have a display thing for my bottles but there is a little bit of overflow now

Coffee/Tea - I don't drink coffee at all and only occasionally tea. I don't have a few tea bags for loose leaf teas (too lazy for a strainer >.>) but I could use a few more of those perhaps.

Moonalisa - The misters, lotions and sugar scrubs look nice. Smell wise I'd be interested in Conjuring Room, Mabon, Sweetgrass and Smoke, the Witching Hour, Kyphi Magic, Witches Circle and Green Witch.

Halloween Wreath - No thank you

Haus of Gloi - soap, lotion or scrubs are always a yes for me. Scent wise Apothecary, Cozy Sweater, Haus Amber and maybe A Place in Space

Cocoa Pink - same as above, for smells Black, Black Widow, Egyptian Musk, Glowing Eyes or Lucid Dreaming sound nice

Stationary - basics are always useful

Lush - I like lords of misrule and soaps

Future Primitive - I'm always open to soap, lotion and scrubs.

UK things - I was just in the UK but I can't think of anything in particular... maybe those um... caramel wafer bar things? I can't remember the name >.< te..tenny's?

How do you feel about nail wraps? - I wouldn't have the first idea how to use them lol
