    SW Summer 2013!

    7/2 it has occured to me that i may be the easiest person to witch, ever, because i am a greedy bitch and want ALL THE THINGS! no really, witch dear, i just have a love of beauty combined with a lack of impulse control. I know Canadian chips can be different than others, how does "dill pickle" or "ketchup" sound? not good. If you were getting a custom Haus of Gloi blend, what four notes would you choose? Summer notes listed here and you can click through to the whole list from there. oooo. if i have to pick right now... oh oh oh. apricot, vanilla bean, patchouli and amber. or maybe apricot and vanilla with chrysanthemum and amber. ITS SO HARD QUESTION! Do you like Kickstarter? i do occasionally check it out but i have yet to fund anything QUESTION! If you have an Etsy wishlist, what are your top 5 favorite things on there? The price is unimportant, not because I'm rich, but because I'd like some inspiration. lets see... i think these are my current favorites: home fairy hair OH GOD I LOVE MINIATURE SCENES IN NECKLACES real flowers in necklaces toooooo cute cute cute Festival this week -- includes an "encampment" and an art faire. any interest in trinkety things from the encampment or cards/prints from local artists? ooo! yeah! i dont know what. but yes. jewelry or wall art, perhaps How do you feel about glitter? does loose glitter make your skin crawl or would you bathe in it? meh. i prefer glitter to be in something already, like nail polish or eyeshadow, and i prefer the tiny kind, not big chunks of it. Do you want/need/like/collect journals? If so, do you prefer lined or unlined? i could possible use a new sketchbook. my old one is falling apart. Does the idea of wearing a plant as jewelery give you the warm fuzzies or the heebie jeebies? fuzzies! but i prefer things like moss or very very tiny plants or flowers in resin.. not like a big honkin succulent on a chain Gourmet popcorn, yes/no? What do you like: glazed, savory, candied? Nuts or not? Any flavors you wouldn't like (like Bacon CHeeseburger, Pizza, Watermelon, Root Beer Float, Hot Chili Dark Chocolate)? Or if any of those sounded interesting, how weird is weird enough? hmm. yes to gourmet popcorn, but no really bizarre flavors, i think, something sweet and/or salty would be good Question: I make my own hair gloss, would you like some detangling and very shiny hair gloss made by me? This is a 'cone rich blend, not the least bit natural. sure! 6/29 I live near the Brown and Haley outlet - makers of Almond Roca and Mountain Bars - I don't know what that is. do I like those? I also have an Oberto jerky outlet local to me - any wants there? sure! something a little spicy, but not super hot. doctor boyfriend loves jerky as well. How do you feel about home-canned goods? sure! jams and stuff are nice. I don't know enough about canning to know what else you might can for me:) Do you like BPTP clothing? I don't have any! but some of the lunacy shirts are awesome. and I have to admit, I love yoga pants for hanging about the house What size do you wear of: Baby-doll T's xs/ s Regular T's same yoga pants same Also, what is your favorite lunacy (or non-lunacy) T-shirt that you don't already own? hmmm. i'd have to look at all the lunacy ones. I feel like the honey moon one was really pretty. Or other clothes from BPTP? What else do you love from the Trading Post site, and need to have? all of the things. seriously, I want to try any of the room sprays and bath oils without death notes. 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)? scifi fantasy and kids movies, mostly, but I like a good romantic comedy or musical- Moulin rouge, romeo and Juliet- actually, if baz luhrman did it I probably like it. dvd please, no blu ray here. -Following up on the Adagio question from earlier, what are you top five wishes, for teas and blends? I can always use white peach, white blueberry and black cream. i'm interested in a lot of the harry potter fandom teas- I have tried felix felicis and unfortunately I hate it:( no almond for me! -Do you have anything that you do ritually, every summer? not really. I try to spend time at/in the water -What are your top five wishes from ThinkGeek? middle earth map death star tea infuser classic star wars tee cthulhu in love -Seen anything lately that makes you go OH HOLY FUCK THAT'S AWESOME!! ? hmmm. I've been adding a lot of stuff to my etsy and pinterest? Do you like audiobooks? If so, do you have/would you like to try Audible? (I'm an addict, myself.) I really only listen to them when I take a bubble bath, but I WOULD listen. unfortunately a lot of the free audiobooks out there are read by people who sound... I dunno. very bored. Chocolate: Love? Hate? Allergic? If love, what are your faves? if you don't know this by know, you don't know me at all. send me all the chocolate, witch. except wrap it well, because it will melt here. BUT I WILL EAT IT. 6/26 What is your favorite color? if i only get one, teal. What is your favorite season? oooo i love the spring and planting flowers and baby animals and everyone being twitterpated, but i also love the fall and halloween and burning leaves and pumpkins:) If you could live anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would it be? oh man. honestly, i love louisville, ky (my hometown). if i had all the money in the world i'd buy a fancy old house in st james court or maybe somewhere that i've never been that sounds amazing, like new zealand -Do you have any long trips coming up? If so, could you use things to occupy yourself? no trips here, just work. lots of work. -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? oooo. interesting honeys, or ... um... interesting whatever, -Name three things that you could use, but might not necessarily think to get for yourself? hmm. an anti-tarnish polishing cloth for my silver jewelry. i end up not wearing it when it tarnishes because the smell makes me ill -Does anything from the TP Etsy update interest you? oo, i would love some samhain or harvest festival room spray. I just found out Oreo is launching ones with watermelon flavor in the USA only. Is it something you would enjoy? maybe? i tend to not be huge on, like, manufactured food products, if that makes sense. like stuff that's mostly made of chemicals and is not actually made of much food, lol What are the three BPALs you would most like to receive - one GC, one not-hard to find LE, and one HTF LE from your dreams? 1)lyonesse 2)pallas athene or mme moriarty 3)snake charmer res If you knit/crochet, what sizes of needles do you need? no knitting here, really What styles of artwork do you like? good examples are in my pinterest under 'one art, please' If you cook, would you be interested in-hand made spice mixes/rubs? Would you like mexican vanilla or silver rings/necklaces? sure! dont really wear rings, but necklaces are nice Conjure Oils? would LOVE TO TRY. haven't looked through the site enough to know what i would really like other than a lot of the apothecary single notes, especially grapefruit 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?hmmm. not that i know of. I know there's been a question about favorite quotes but this is specific: Do you have a quote that's not more than, say, a dozen words long that you would like in a cross-stitch? I'm going to go with what you already know: i like unexpected things on cross stitches because it's such a traditional craft, you know? 'expecto patronum' would be cool, or any of the harry potter spells 6/25 Do you have any symbols or totems that are meaningful to you? hmmm. i like hearts, and trees. they feature prominently in my artwork most of the time. i've always liked spiders- there's something cool about them being so creepy and so graceful and beautiful at the same time. i don't know if this is really what the question meant, but the few small paranormal experiences i've had are incredibly important to me- i'm super interested in ghosts/spirits and firmly convinced that there is more to this world than we can see on a day to say basis. it's more than a belief, i suppose, more of a need- like everything is so messed up, and people can be so awful, and the world can seem so pointless but if there are really more layers to reality than we're being exposed to, then there's a chance things make sense and everything has a purpose on a higher level that we can't always perceive. this goes hand in hand with my fervent interest in cryptozoology- loch ness, bigfoot, etc. i think it's insanely arrogant to assume we have discovered all there is to discover. ok, this got a bit long:) When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? i tend to indulge my sweet tooth when i'm having a really rough day- i'll go for something super decadent like a big fancy cupcake or a cadbury creme egg, reruns of the office, my blankie (dont laugh, my great-aunt made me a blanket when i was born and it's like my instant comfort object) and cuddling the teddy bear doctor boyfriend got me. so.... apparently i deal with a rough day by regressing to age 5. Would you like if your witch sent a regional pop/soda? If so, what type (Root beer, creme soda, cola, citrus-flavored, chocolate-flavored, etc...)? it seems like it would get all shaken up in the mail?? buuuut i do like good unusually-flavored soda as a treat sometimes- pomengranate or coconut, i like cream soda, and i love kombucha tea even though i hate mushrooms. Ninjas or Pirates? pirates. i've always maintained that sneaky ninja methods are cowardly. Werewolves or vampires? hmm. werewolves i think. Zombie or Cthulhu? cthulhu all the way Do you want to receive one big package or a bunch of small ones? Digital stuff all at the end when the box should arrive or as we go? is whatever you wanna do, witchy dear Do you welcome knitted items? If so, what would you like most? (amigurumi, washcloth, socks, shawl, shawlette, scarf, wrist warmers, hat, etc.) Do you have any favorite fibers? How about any fiber allergies? Favorite color for knitted items? i like scarves, and wrist warmers, and socks- i have very small feet- not crazy about wool or fibers with shiny/glittery pieces, they are itchy. i tend to like thinner fibers more than thicker ones- like small lacy knits as opposed to big fluffy ones, if that makes sense? Is there a Quote that resonates with you, or that you particularly like a lot. Would this be something you would like artwork made of for your walls or a shirt/bag/scarf? art of a shirt would be awesome! i have tons of wall space to fill. i've always liked the line "i'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints" from the song only the good die young, and "does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?" from the abhorsen trilogy. i'll probably get 'live and let live' tattooed on my person at some point. i also like the whole idea behind 'expecto patronum' as a method of banishing the monsters of depression and hopelessness:) 6/24 Since FB and the FB Gusp group (and the BPAL Sorority which is quiet) have become gathering places...what are some of your favorite Facebook pages you like? I like a lot of animal rescue pages and local artsy stuff Do you read literature/culture blogs or websites of any kind? I'm thinking about anything that would help a putative witch to get a sense of what your current tastes in books, movies, games, genres, approaches to culture and literature and so forth are. not really. my amazon list has a lot of books and movies I would like, though If you were put in a room with 100 random other people the same age and sex as you, from your country, in what way do you think you would be different from the average? I have absolutely no idea how to answer this question. i'm a big nerd, I guess, and really socially awkward, so I probably wouldn't even know how to find out Haus of Gloi did a Reverie update! Do any of them interest you? (Or anything else up currently?) oh gawd, the rose city anything. their pumpkin butter gives me the warm fuzzies. white peach looks incredible too. Witchee, do you cook? Do you do all the cooking? Is it a chore or a pleasure? occasionally. i'm not a great cook, but I like to put simple things together- spring rolls, lasagna, stuff where I can just throw It all in a pan and it comes out ok. Which reading level do you prefer to read in YA or Adult? Or even both? both. though I tend to lean towards YA fantasy/scifi, I also love clive barker who is most decidedly adult. except the abarat! amazing series. What colors/style is your kitchen decor? And do you entertain in your home? Useful? my kitchen is hideous. it's a rental, so no painting/replacing. the only bright spot is the window full of plants and planters. I can always use nice kitchen towels Are your ears pierced? yes, and stretched. I wear a 00g or 10mm plugs/tunnel, and I like to put dangly earrings under the plugs- the kinds with the hooks, but not too heavy or they look stupid. Do you like stuffies/stuffed animals/art doll type thingies? not really. Do you like bags? If so, what type (rucksack, clutch, shopping bag) colour and would you like/need a new one? Sturdy canvas shopping bags are always welcome. I try to hide a few everywhere so I don't forget 'em (in my car, at work). I could use a new purse, but I wouldn't expect one in a SW round. we have plenty of totes and things around. What's your favourite comfort food (snack or candy etc) and/or drink? I love sweet/salty together- salted caramels, sea salt dark chocolate. Would you like anything from an European country? Any particular food or goodies, magazines, books, whatever would be available to your witch in his/her country. I have never visited Europe but I am open to trying any kind of food/candy you would like to send! not big on hard candies, though What fandoms do you belong to? harry potter, the abhorsen trilogy, dr who, star wars What cheers you up? My dog at the end of the day, wagging and wagging and wagging. a good session of video gaming. snuggling dr boyfriend. a new episode of how I met your mother (or an old one). glass of white wine and a piece of chocolate. What question do you hate to answer? I hate when strangers/customers/store clerks ask me how i'm doing or what i'm doing that day, because it's not socially acceptable to snap "mind your own fucking business, I know you don't really care." also, you are then expected to ask them the same questions in return, and I TRULY do not care. What is the best compliment you have/could receive? the fact hat doctor boyfriend finds all of my weirdnesses quite attractive Is there anything small you try to collect from everywhere you visit? hmm. I like to have one good, frameable photo of any vacation or trip I take Could you name one thing you would be heartbroken not to get and one thing you would be a-ok if it didn't make it in your box? If my Witch sends me thoughtful gifts and takes my preferences into consideration, anything s/he sends is wonderful. Honest. Would you like something from Empire Edibles? oh god. yes. What are the three books you most want to read right now, and which you don't already have? ummmm check my amazon, i'm not sure off the top of my head:) but I do ALWAYS want vintage copies of classics, even if I already have one or three. Do you have any problems with swearing or particularly off-color humor? hehe. nope. What would you like from the most recent BPAL update? What are you planning on buying for yourself and what would you like to try? I MIGHT buy sweet pea if I have the funds, I know i'l love it. the BTPT bath oils both sound incredible Do you like tarot cards, pendulums and rune stones etc? I enjoy tarot cards for the art but I don't use them all that often Opinions on table top games, from cards and board games, to dice and rpgs. What do you like? What don't you like? Favorites? Any classics you like? Do you collect any? meh What style is your sense of humour? often dry and sarcastic, but can also be really goofy Is there anything from Australia you would like? sho nuff, its whatever Gift cards/vouchers - yay or nay? If you like them - which stores would you like one for? sure! sock dreams, bodyartforms.com, amazon, etsy What is your favourite object, that you own, ignoring sentimental reasons for attachment? the xbox. we don't have cable, so we run Netflix and hulu through the xbox and get all of our tv-based entertainment there Do you use wax melt tarts? love them! I could also use a secondary warmer. but if its the electric kind, it needs a decently long cord- none of the ones that plug directly in to the socket, please, or I will have three burned wax-covered dog noses on my hands Do you like Hot Chocolate? yep I have a feeling I will struggle with keeping my identity secret from my witchee. If you happen to find out who yours is, how much would it bother you? I don't care at all, witch dear! 10 Random songs: cosmic love- Florence and the machine unless it's kicks- okkervil river mx missile proof- Andrew bird soft as chalk- Joanna newsom better way- ben harper left me in a hole- yonder mountain string band nothing left- brown bird in the pines- doc Watson somewhere beyond the sea- frank Sinatra Styrofoam boots- modest mouse Have you ever tried Spoonfudge? Would you enjoy it if your Witch would send you some? Which of the flavors would you like? Sounds amazing. please don't make me too fat, witch What's your opinion on Moonalisa? Any favorites or products you'd like to try? never tried em, but open to any and all bath and body that's cruelty free, especially small companies with as many natural/organic ingredients as possible 6/20 If you could have one rare bpal which one would you choose? snake charmer! original or res. (Feel free not to answer, I know it's not a standard one!) Are you kinky? a bit Do you enjoy scented candles? Certain sizes that you like? What kind of scents or brands? love, love, love candles and tarts. my absolute favorite thing is scentsationals' 'black orchid'.. strangely enough i can only ever find it at marshall's but i always buy any i can find. i love voluspa and skeem candles, but for the sake of price i usually buy candles by victoria, though a lot of their scents are a bit artificial/overly sweet to my nose. two timing tart makes amazing tarts, but for some reason her candles don't seem as strongly scented. i love citrus scents, vanilla, grapefruit, patchouli, deep spicy sexy stuff, pretty much anything voluspa or skeem makes- i love 'different' scent combinations- not a fan of 'clean' or 'beach' smells as they usually smell really fake/ headache inducing. Thoughts about South Africa? Have you been here, would you like to go? Would you like to receive anything South African? i've never been. honestly don't know much about it other than some extremely turbulent history. Do you like Sockdreams? If so, what styles would you prefer? (You can also link your wishlist.) yep!! http://www.sockdreams.com/_users/wishlists/3e959799d399c06 Do you need hair accessories? If so, what kind or color? i would like some cute bobby pins with flowers or pearls or things on them. not 'cutesy' plastic stuff but like elegant fabric flowers or lace What is your favorite shade of blue? teal, seafoam, cobalt (but not navy, ha) anything that looks like the ocean Do you have any kitchen gadgets (a SodaStream, a Kuerig/Tassimo) that you want mix things for? no If you were to start learning something new (intellectual or craft or hobby), what would it be? i have just started painting again and would like to get better at it What about candy? Do you have a sweet tooth? oh, yes. Do you have an e-reader? What kind? Would you like to get ebooks? I have a nook and would love books for it! If your witch is an extremely crafty sort, and she were to send all kinds of homemade foody goodies and handmade crafty stuff - what are items you would NOT LOVE to receive. Please dont hedge on this one...some of us are serious crafters and will be making most of what we send! hmmm. i dont really need any random nick-nacks to sit about my shelves and get dusty, or any storage boxes unless it's a super awesome one especially for imps, because i DO need one of those. Witchee dear, do you like video games? Are there any you want to play? Do you have a large library? we have an xbox and a wii- just got the wii so i don't have any games for it yet but i have several listed on my amazon WL! i like fantasty rpg type stuff, fable, final fantasy, stuff like that. just got minecraft. Do you have something you do, without fail, as a personal daily habit/ritual? (Examples: pen-and-paper journal keeping, tea/coffee drinking, morning yoga, nightly bedtime reading. I'm kind of thinking on things that would be dear to you and might need small supplies or could use certain extras. ) i can always use a new tea infuser as i tend to steep things more than once. i'd love a small french press for making large leaf teas. Do you wear nailpolish? What colors do you tend to go for? What are your favorite brands? Are you open to trying indie brands? i do wear it but just recently started so i dont have a favorite brand, am definitely open to trying whatever- i like fairly subtle colors for my hands, tan/beige/peach, i like sheer sparkly stuff as well, i go a bit more daring on the toesies- red, black, blue, whatever. i need a good solid clear coat polish. i dont think i would use 'multi step' stuff like the crackles Name three BPAL scents you hav tried, but are dying to get more of. mme moriarty, lyonesse, half elf Do you still write real letters on nice stationary to people you like/love? no Have you ever tried anything from Paintbox Soapworks? Which products or scents would you prefer? i love, LOVE whiskers soap. would like to try the scrubs. i've liked all the scents i've tried except guy fawkes and the queen is dead. Do you like/have space to garden? i LOVE gardening, inside and out. ican absolutely always use planters, or anything that can be made a planter, for indoors. plants that like low-medium light are much loved also. seeds, cuttings, etc whatever you want to send i will be excited about:) Do you like sample sized things? Think lipgloss, mascara, bodylotion, scrubs, mini candles, and so forth. yep Have you tried Fortune Cookie Soap? What products or scents would you like? never tried em Do you use solid soaps at all? If so, what kind do or don't you like? i'm not crazy about villainess soaps, for some reason. the scents don't really come through. i like a lot of lush soaps- sandstone is the best thing that ever happened but i HATE the smell, so if i could find a sand-filled, super scrubby soap that didnt smell like lemon pledge i would die of happiness. i'd love to try haunt and arcana. Have you ever tried Cocoa Pink? If you are curious about it, what looks interesting to you? never heard of it? i'm up for anything Do you like Lush? If so, what is your favorite product that is currently available, also, what is a product that you love but has been discontinued? i love the glorious mud they just discontinued. angels on bare skin is my go-to face wash, and sultana of soap is my favorite soap. also love honey i washed the kids and karma soap. i use the big conditioner. Dr Who? yes please:) tennant ftw. How much do you like lipbalm? Flavored or unflavored? What are your favorite brands and flavors? lipbalm obsession here, but im slightly picky. i don't like things that are/taste overly waxy, i like a more creamy/oily balm. hurrah is currently my weapon of choice- the lemon, grapefruit and vanilla bean are my favorite Do you like and wear lipgloss? If yes, what colours? i dont like anything that's sticky- if anything i usually go for a stain in a berry/ vintage red For those of you whose wishlists contain only BPALs, are there any other perfume companies you like or would like to try out? anything oil based/ not alcohol Your feelings on Adagio teas: If you've never had anything from them, would you be open to trying them? If you HAVE had them and like them, name some favorites blends. And if you had them and dislike them, can you name a few *other* tea companies you're into? I do like them, the cream and apricot black teas are always on hand- i love the white blueberry and peach but for some reason i dont often buy them for myself. no yerba mate or almond anything, please, blech. also love the foxtrot for bedtime and i'm almost out. What about coffee? Would you like to get coffee send to you? Whole bean or ground? What are some varieties and/or flavors you enjoy i like coffee, but cant really drink it as it makes my heart do weird floppy things Who is your favourite female of all time? Historical, literary, ANYTHING, and why? hmmmm. excellent. anne bonny (first recorded female pirate and source of my username) is a big favorite. big fan of lirael from garth nix's 'abhorsen' trilogy. alice paul. If you were a Disney princess you would be?: not sure i would be a princess... buuuuut maybe the one from beauty and the beast. not that i'm all that, bu ti would like it if my household objects interacted with me. i'm probably more like fiona from shrek Would you like a seashell from Florida? no thanks.... unless i can put a plant in it. ha! What craft project do you currently have on your docket or that you want to start? And that craft goodies would be welcome? i love vintage fabrics, florals, things that i can mod podge on to other things.

    Feed Me and Fill Me With Pleasure

    why are you reading reviews? you know it's fucking magnificent. it's a nice spicy warm woody patch at first, then the vanilla and amber come out with no plastic or powder, just take-me-now-you-sexy-hippie. TA-DAAAAHHH.

    The Cat

    Sleek, black, dark, and clever: benzoin, honey, cedar, and dark musk. oh dear. first?! ok. in the bottle, it's awfully light- benzoin and cedar, mostly, but in a nice woody kind of way, not a hamster-cage cedar. on me, still mostly benzoin and wood, with a little bit of furry muskiness. there's a sweetness from the honey, but i don't actually smell the honey. as it dries something is reminding me of bergamot, but not quite as sharp as bergamot can be. it's nice, but a little bit.. wimpy? there's not much base to it, yet. this fades fairly quickly, and i was hoping for more dark musk out of it, but i can see this aging to be darker and stronger. i'm gonna hang on to it, and will update in a few weeks or so to see what happens. edit: morpher alert! hello, mysterious musk, you are smelling very dark and mysterious two hours later.
  7. absolutely try klara, and for some reason, jezebel (honey, roses, orange blossom and sandalwood.) reminds me very strongly of alice and klara without the powdery or milkiness.
  8. blossoms in springtime is very much like light of mens lives to me- BIS is sweeter where LML is smokier, but very very close. jezebel is almost spot-on klara and/or alice, but a little more floral instead of powdery. i think i actually prefer jezebel eta: tombstone is very much like badgers, somehow. i far and away prefer badgers, but they both have that dusty hayish sweetness. maybe tombstone layered with something sweet patchouli would come close.

    Little Flora

    i don't usually fail this badly on a scent- but oh god, this is so awful to my nose it's almost comical. i dont understand how flowers and cream could be so stinky. i think the brand- new cream is part of it; i can smell a hint of it in love's philosophy and my well-aged boo- but there's a sort of spicy rottenness to it. dr. boyfriend also made the stink-face at it. actually, the more i think about it, its possible i've never smelled a creamcentric scent new from the lab and i'm not sure my nose is handling it well.. i get no greenery or flowers here, just blech. i'm sorry not to be more descriptive, but i really cant place it... it's a very rich, full, overwhelming gross

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    ok, so i'm not sure which version of australian gold i used to use- but season of ghosts smells EXACTLY like it. i swapped it away because i didnt want to smell like my sunblock,but it was a happy, bergamot-heavy deal for sure.

    Scent for Halloween?

    raven moon today for giftmas eve, and maybe bastet tomorrow:)
  12. just recieved a frimp of lights of mens lives and was struck by how similar it is to blossoms in springtime- beeswax all day. BIS is fruitier where LOML is spicier, but if i had discovered the GC first i probably wouldnt have sprung for the luper just recieved a frimp of lights of mens lives and was struck by how similar it is to blossoms in springtime- beeswax all day.

    What the hell? Fruit Loops? this has never happened to me with either black musk or amber before, so it must be some absurdity about them being alone together... "hey! no one's chaperoning! let's get fruity!"

    What Scent Is This?

    i swapped that one away pretty promptly but yeah, i distinctly remember a stinky cologny-ness. ARGH! recieved a mystery imp in a swap today that's soooo pretty... and the sender of it recieved it that way too, so there's no telling. i'm HORRIBLE at picking out notes, especially if it's well aged, but its a dark orangey oil, and if i had to guess i'd say some kind of floral/vanilla/fruit (i know, that really narrows it down, right?) for some reason it makes me think lupers. and it reminds me a bit of vasilissa without the skin musk, i think

You are meeting up with someone on a casual lunch/early afternoon thing. This person is someone you want to impress/look good for (for whatever reason, not necessarily romantic, and not necessarily for business either). What would you look like, given the contents of your wardrobe/etc? going by what's currently in my closet and pretending its early spring- i've got this gorgeous flowy white dress with a gold and blue rose print with and asymmetrical, short-in-front and long-in-back hem. simple black sandals, leafy roman headband. You are to be let loose in a clothing store of your choice, to pick a full outfit, down to the shoes, the accessories, etc. and things would be altered to fit you if needed. What store would that be, and what would you look like? oh man. free people, maybe, or a really cute vintage boutique we have called Feathers. or By George. Somewhere with really unique, high-quality, usa-made or vintage or hand-made clothing. (i guess it doesn't absolutely have to be usa, but i prefer to know my stuff comes from people earning a fair wage and all that.) it's a slightly sexy but very sophisticated mini dress, not SO mini that i'd be embarrassed for my grandmother to see me in it. thick, soft, COMFORTABLE leggings and some really, really kick ass leather lace-up boots. or the perfect jeans- the 'cigarette pant' cut is by far the best thing i have ever seen on my body, and i don't find them often. i like em skinny/snug to the calf and then straight down. You open a box from the post office to reveal the 3 things you want most right now. What are they?

YEAH!! i love ghosty paranormal things, AND i'm majorly homesick for kentucky. art prints would be fantastic, especially smallish things. jewelry is awesome too! i do like skulls and skeletons but i tend to like non-human ones- i have a bird skull necklace that's my favorite thing in the world. What is your holy grail "I'd kill to just have one drop in an imp" bpal scent? orange, or antique lace. but honestly i'm the type to try to avoid falling in love with things i'll NEVER be able to get a bottle of for under a million dollars. Are there any existing Weenies that you have your eye on, but haven't gotten around to getting? i'm going to order evening stock before it goes down, but i'm waffling on boo. i need some opinions in the recc thread first. if you wear earrings, do you have pierced ears? Yes! i have stretched ears, 00g, but i love to wear dangly earrings through my tunnels- the kind on hooks/wires. love you witch!
