  • BPAL of the Day
    Lunar Eclipse 2009
  • Favorite Scents
    I USED to think the only scent I could wear without getting migraines was White Musk from The Body Shop (still my fave)...but I have learned that with BPAL, I can wear and like so much more. So far, musk of any kind....learning the others as I get more access to more smells. Surprisingly, fruits and sweet florals have been winners!

    About Me

    Astrological Sign: SCORPIO Chinese Zodiac: (Fire) Dragon Spirit Animal: Manatee (and Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony) Personality Type: ENFP Politics: Very Liberal If I were a fictional character: Miss Piggy. Smart and sassy. Nerdy, cute and chubby. Independent, but likes to be pampered. I am passionate about just about everything I do. I am “all or nothing.” I am never lukewarm. I am full of contradictions. I am a jaded old soul with an innocent heart. A gregarious introvert, or a socially anxious and awkward extravert. Down-to-earth but a bit of a diva, optimistic but depressed, smart but silly. Confident but insecure. I am open-minded, but can be quick to judge. "Champagne tastes on a beer budget." I laugh too loud, I cry too easy, I talk too much, I drive too fast, I love too hard. Some people may think I am too intense, too loud, too much. I would not change any of these things. I have my fair share of opinions and tend to share them. Life is too short to bite your tongue when you really need to use your voice. WHAT I DO I am a (mostly) Stay at Home mom - but that does not mean I do not work. I have plenty of jobs, projects and activities. I Read and Write. Poetry. Essays. I also have several incomplete and currently stalled book projects - fiction, erotica, non-fiction, and memoir/confessional. I Dance I enjoy dancing of almost all kinds, but as a hobby and form of expression, I am a burlesque dancer. I “Model” I enjoy working with photographers to make art. I have fun with it - it's like playing dress-up as an adult. I Travel I have been to France, Ireland, England, Singapore, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Canada and Australia. I have not been to Mexico yet, despite my current proximity to it. I Drink A variety of brewed beverages: tea, coffee, beer. And wine. I know wine is not brewed, but still. And when I absolutely need it, I drink a Red Bull here and there. WHAT PEOPLE USUALLY NOTICE ABOUT ME My laugh It is very loud and unique. It has made performers drop their lines and has been used to locate me in a crowded amusement park. My vocabulary I absolutely love words, wordplay, and the history and lives of words and phrases. My height or lack thereof. My boobs. Or my butt. It depends which of them knocks your drink over first. WHAT I AM VERY GOOD AT: napping - I am an EXCELLENT napper hugging - I give great ones. singing alone in my car or in the shower. laughing loudly being very clumsy - so NOT running or biking or climbing. I only run if someone with a weapon or an animal with big sharp teeth is chasing me. And even then...meh. I like to bike, but have a tendency to fall. "I'm an excellent scathing letter-writer."

If so, any particular type you'd love to get? Sure! Switch Witch is, of course, all about you.....but if your Witch was so inclined, are there wee little ones in your home that will get jealous and are just too young to understand why you won't share the love, who maybe need a touch of Witchee love all their own, to distract them while you hide all your lovelies?!?

Autumn - at least it was when i lived in an area that had it (Texas, not so much) If you could live anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would it be? Right here in Austin, Texas.

ENNUI - Smooch, Soap, Whipped I'm going to Jungle Jim's next week (it's basically a massive international food gasm in Ohio, look it up); would anything interest you? SURE! Becky Cloonan comics on Comixology? Phonogram Vol. 2: The Singles Club, Thought Bubble Anthology, Ink and Thunder Does anything from the BPTP Etsy update interest you?

For those of you who are big readers: Are there any books that just came out (like within the last two months) or are about to come out during this round that you're really looking forward to? The newest Neil Gaiman novel (Ocean at the End of the Lane) Would you like a painting? YES Would you like a story written for you? ZOMG YES! Twatwaffle? bought 2 soaps for my sister and would love one for myself! TAL update on etsy. Is there anything you want/need? UM...I bought All the Things Tattoos? Want more Oberto Jerky? sure How do you feel about home-canned goods? awesome Do you like BPTP clothing? too small, but i love Dearest Witch: Is there a particular movie genre that you like (Fantasy? Drama? Romantic Comedy? Musicals? TV-Series, etc), and what format would you prefer: DVD, Blu-Ray, or something in the cloud (like Amazon, iTunes, Flixster, etc)? Sci-fi and fantasy are always in my top five, for both movies and tv series. DVD would be preferred, if available, but if you have a way to gift me digital episodes, I would take that! -Following up on the Adagio question from earlier, what are you top five wishes, for teas and blends? Tea wise, I'd love samples of the white peach, and vanilla oolong, the green rooibos and nut and spice samplers, and a larger amount of the tiger eye tea. Blend wise, I'm gonna divide it up into two, because there's tea that I want that I blended, and that others blended. ^^ From my blends, I want to try Sailor Cosmos, Axel, Ariadne, Snake Oil, and the Dire Ravenstag. From others' blends, I want to try Classic Brunette, Laufeyson Black, Son of Coul, James Potter, and 007 (the last three are Cara McGee's). -Do you have anything that you do ritually, every summer? Besides grillouts with friends and beer, there's this thing by us called Concerts on the Square, where you can bring a picnic basket (including booze!) to the Capitol lawn, and there's a concert set up! It's amazing. -What are your top five wishes from ThinkGeek? The Cthulhu Can't Sleep tank top, the braided fabric smartphone cable (Lightning connector please, in the Galaxy color scheme!), Pavina double-walled glassware, the One Ring hoop earrings, and the Doozers at Work mug! -Seen anything lately that makes you go OH HOLY FUCK THAT'S AWESOME!! ? This sweater!! I don't know how translatable this would be to a shawl, but this would be amazing to have! Do you like audiobooks? If so, do you have/would you like to try Audible? (I'm an addict, myself.) Not so much, but thank you! Chocolate: Love? Hate? Allergic? If love, what are your faves? Yay chocolate! Milk chocolate is a perennial favorite, especially the tea room's Black Masala Chai infused milk chocolate bar! Dove chocolate is always good, too.

    What BPAL would this fictional character wear?

    I had not seen this thread when I wrote the review, but the first thing I thought when I put VILF on was that it was what Faith would wear. I read through and did not see suggestion for DOWNTON ABBEY, and I am in the mood to watch Season 1 again. OH!, and ARCHER! (Could I have picked two more different ones?)

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    Oh! I want to try this! Let's see...my personality. First, I am a very typical Scorpio, with the exception of being secretive. In fact, I am overt about just about everything, no topic too taboo, nothing is shocking. Chinese sign = dragon...again, I find to be pretty accurate. For those familiar with the MBTI/Meyers-Briggs, I am an ENFP. Raised Irish-Catholic, but more of a "make your own religion" spiritualist. When I was an undergraduate, I studied History and French, then went on to get my Masters in Education. I have also worked part-time/freelance jobs at a feminist bookstore, and a sex-postive sex toy store. After leaving a career in higher education, I am currently a stay at home mom to a brilliant and beautiful 7YO daughter who is on the autism spectrum. I did go back to school for a year towards my MLS, only to learn that my program was way more geared towards information infrastructure than learning how to pimp books to kids. I am short (5ft), and plus-sized (16-18), big-busted 36 YO with auburn hair (well, right now it is teal) and blue eyes. Big boobs, big butt. I am kind of a person of extremes. I am bi-polar - not only in official definition, but I tend to run hot or cold, never lukewarm. I am Bi, and a huge flirt. I alternate between being a hermit and being a performer. I dance burlesque, and can be almost naked in front of a crowd of people, but be shy in a different group. My dancing burlesque started as a kind of joke - in that I am TOTALLY not a glamourous person, at all. I would not call myself uber-feminine, but I never wear t-shirt or pants. I dress entirely for comfort, but enjoy getting fancied up in a corset and fishnets. Burlesque led to some modeling, and I also am involved in storytelling/poetry, etc. I am passionate about issues of social justice. Like lots of people here, I enjoy comics, Gaiman, and fantasy. I also like documentaries, history and travel shows. I love wine. A lot. I am a night person, and really am not a "let's go to the beach all day" kind of gal. I like the beach in the fall. Autumn is my favorite season, and some of my favorite smells are related to that - burning leaves, pumpkin, apple, cranberry - those scents do not often work on me. They turn to cookie. I love water, but not aqua scents.Not unless it is more salt water than ozone. While I am a very sexual person, most of the fragrances that are categorized as such do not (Siren almost choked me!). ANY fragile flower - orchid, jasmine, gardenia, rose - is likely to kill me. Honey does not do well on me. Or too much Vanilla. Angeronalia nearly killed me. Scents that I have LOVED: Lady Una, Hunter Moon, Scorpio 2007, Ivanushka, Underpants, Fruit of Paradise, Count Dracula, Crypt Queen., VILF. Musks, cloves and spices that are warm but not foody. SAFFRON seems to be magic on my skin. There are other BPAL smells I love, and that smell great on me, but are not "ME" - Candy Phoenix, Phoenix, Strawberry Moon, Red Fraggle, The Fairies, Fire Pg (I LOVE peony). So, I would love to hear some other suggestion!
  5. As a rule, I do not sell imps or decants I have received free from other people, or that are in less than fresh condition. But, I will give them away to swap/sale partners! I usually look at wishlists, etc. but if there is something you want on this list, feel free to request!

    It is Red Kool-Aid and I LOVE IT! When I tested this, my ass was dragging. As soon as the oil hit my skin, I felt my energy increase and my mood lift - I felt like I started channeling Red Fraggle. I felt my bounce increase. Mouth-watering fruit cocktail. As it dried, it retained its fizziness, but also subdued a bit, so that I did not feel like I was wearing a "kiddie perfume." The musk and the pepper came out and softened it. It fades fast, but when it is around, it is effervescent. Very much like its namesake, Red may not have a lot of depth, and be more about the "right now" than the long-term, but you have to admire its boldness, energy, and enthusiasm. She is that good friend who you can only take in small doses, but you always have a good time when you hang out with her. You have to be in the mood for her.

    Miss Addie

    I should have known better. I am too common and loud to fit into Miss Addie's fancy boarding house, and the fragrance is too fancy for me. When I read the scent description of Miss Addie, I had hope: clove, anise, sandalwood...maybe it could warm up the flowers (especially that prissy orchid) enough to let us get along? I had hoped those notes could dirty up the girls of the boarding house, let them let their hair down a little. Let them be a little naughty. Nope. They are way too prim, proper, and well-behaved. In the bottle, it was a little warmer, and the floral notes subdued enough to allow me to try it...but as soon as it hit my skin, all I got out of Miss Addie was orchid. FLOWER NOTE OF DEATH (see also: rose). And it just kept amping until I eventually had to wash it off (after it had already given me a headache) Nope. I am more suited to a cheap hotel than a fancy boardinghouse.

    Well, shit! Unfortunately, I LOVE this! Since it is so coveted and hard to find, I was really hoping that the patchouli and the florals would make this a less than stellar fragrances for me. No such luck, and now I have another addition to my "must have"s. In the bottle - Leather and Musk. mmmm. Wet on skin - oh, I smell the spices now! yummy - but a safe distance from foody. cloves, honey, vanilla, pepper combined with sandalwood and the leather completely fades into the background. Like, you are wearing a leather choker, not a leather jacket. Dry - The musk comes back out to play and the pink pepper gives it extra bite - taking it from sexy and comforting to sultry and kinda dangerous. Faith from Buffy/Angel would wear VILF. Between this and Madame Moriarty, I have learned that I do not need to eliminate a fragrance just because patchouli is a component - and that will make me 1) happier and 2) more poor. Now, where can I find a bottle?

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    This is where imp swapping and selling comes in really handy. I am VERY fragrant sensitive - and a good number of scents do give me headaches (mostly florals like gardenia, magnolia, etc.). A lot of it is trial and error, but use the forum swap and sale threads to get rid of what does not work for you, and find things that might! ~ missy ~

    Sinus pain relief. I really wish I could "like" previous comments... Anyway, Husband suffers a LOT of sinus issues (which is why he can never smell the differences between my perfumes!). I had my perfume drawer out while he was dealing with some and figured I would try Oof with him. As soon as I opened it, the memory of childhood colds and flus came rushing back, because this is - as many people have indicated - identical to Vick VapoRub without the overtly medicinal edge. While it does smell like Vicks at first, it does not end up smelling like "sick people." It dried gentler and sweeter and herb-y. While I would not want this to be an everyday scent for myself, I would be more willing to wear this to clear my sinuses than any other mentholated rub.

    Strawberry Moon 2012

    I cannot stop sniffing myself. This is the first BPAL scent that I have applied, re-applied, and completely slathered over myself. I really should stop, because the bottle will not last long if I keep it up. My mouth *LITERALLY* waters when I wear this. I have never found a strawberry fragrance that has been natural smelling - they have all turned me into Strawberry Shortcake No, this is not dessert. The green (dandelion?) in this makes it smell EXACTLY like picking strawberries in Texas in May. The warmth of the sun, the sweetness of the berries, the green of the strawberry leaves you pluck the berries from, and the bees buzzing around.

    BPAL & Weather

    It is pouring here in Central Texas right now - sexy thunderstorms! What would the best scent to wear be to really capture that gorgeous wild storm kind feeling?

    The Fruit of Paradise

    This is heavenly....OK, maybe not the right world (underworldy?). Fruit smells tend to make me feel like I am wearing a fragrance that is way too "young" for me - but Fruit of Paradise is a mature, berry-like smell that will in no way be confused for a "teeny-bopper" perfume or generic B&B product. I agree with the statement that this smells a little like Crypt Queen without the pepper and florals. I would not have made that connection, but it totally does. I cannot really add anything new that has not been said about Fruit of Paradise, but it is velvet-y and sparkl-y at the same time. Deep and bright red at the same time. Tart and spicy at the same time. This will definitely layer well, as others have said. Good throw, especially for a fruit smell (my skin sucks up sweet smells) - and lasted me all day with no reapplication. For me, this may merit another bottle - it is the perfect winter sexiness.
