    Switch Witch 2017 Part 2

    10/3/17 Witchee, would you like anything from the Trading Post Halloween update? https://blackphoenix...y/weenies-2017/ Surprisingly nothing is jumping out at me.
  2. I'm going to keep all the ketchup here for my witch Here are my amazon wishlists: http://a.co/5jItXeq http://a.co/0AQ8TmF http://a.co/b4i25d4 Here's my etsy wishlist - it gives a good sense of my tastes as does my pinterest https://www.pinterest.ca/rbecksf/ https://www.etsy.com/ca/people/rebeccafoley4/favorites?ref=hdr 10/1/17 Awesome farmer's market by my house. They have a local honey stand (which also sells things made from local honey like Propolis tincture!); there's a small apothecary and she additionally makes soaps and hand-made, hand-poured scented candles; plus a guy that makes an array of BBQ and Hot Sauces. Does ny of this appeal? Would you like anything from my local farmer's market? I love candles and soaps (animal product free if possible please - except beeswax, I'm alright with that). I love hot sauce so new hot sauces I'm always open to as well! Smolder Cosmetics. Do any of their products (glitter, eye dusts etc) appeal to you? https://smoldercosmetics.com Some of those lipsticks look amazing!!!! I've been toying with the idea of a vampy dark red, so Royal looks really intriguing (https://smoldercosmetics.com/collections/lips/products/royal) As does this https://smoldercosmetics.com/collections/lips/products/libby-liquid-matte-lipstick-coming-soon-smolder-cosmetics-x-ashley-rosales Loose pigments aren't my favourite because I'm usually a disaster and manage to spill them everywhere. I'll use them if I get them but I don't go out of my way to get them. Anything from Strobe Cosmetics (http://strobecosmetics.com)? Those eyeshadows are all gorgeous!!! I may have mentioned I don't wear a huge amount of makeup so I rarely buy any new things that are fun, but if I were given some I'd have an excuse to play more. I don't wear super dark or bright colours often because I'm so pale and wear brights so infrequently that I feel super awkward wearing them. But interesting neutrals, greens, and coppers usually get worn. How would you feel about getting Hello Kitty stuff? HK really isn't my thing. Adorable but not really me. Would you like to get some favorite recipes? ALWAYS!!!! I love cooking and baking so much so if people are willing to share their favourites I'm always down. Have I mentioned my obsession with cookbooks. I think it gets a little out of hand sometimes but I love them despite my inability to follow a recipe while cooking (don't worry I follow things to a T when I bake). Would you like anything from my shop? https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaNut? These pieces are beautiful but not really my style. 9/30/17 Would you like anything from the Haus of Gloi Fall Part II update? https://www.hausofgl...ween-scent-list There's surprisingly nothing that I NEED to have but cozy pumpkin, Grimoire, hex, and pumpkin eater all sound very lovely. 9/26/17 Halloweenie update of doom scents that I'd be interested in: Pumpkin Spice Perversion!!!! Holy smokes! I love pumpkin spice scents and combined with Perversion it might end me. Singularly At Ease - I'm intrigued by this scent. I'm not really that into baked good scents, but the tea note is interesting. What are your top three most wanted DC'd or previous LE BPALs? ​Cake Smash - I'm still regretting not picking it up in my first order. ​Severin - yes I'm insane, but I love tea and leather notes! Casanova - I still have an imp of this but rarely wear it because I can't get more. What are some things you do NOT want to receive? Animal products - that includes bones and things. Even when sourced from naturally deceased animals they creep me out a little. Other than that and things containing allergens for me I'm not terribly picky. Although I should note that if an allergen slips by it's no worry because I'm sure my boyfriend would enjoy food that I can't eat. 9/25/17 Anyone like/want calendars or dayplanners? ​I love them, but I'm super pleased with my current one. If you like stationery, do you like plain, colors, images, or specific DON'T LIKES? ​I don't do a lot of things that are super cutesy, but I'm open to colours, images, and patterns. What about general desk stuff like cool colored paperclips and post it pads? I'm pretty good on that front I think. Unless you find something super nerdy Would anyone be interested in having any of Abigail Larson's artwork (either as a print or on something, like a pillow, blanket, or t-shirt)? https://society6.com/abigaillarson Gosh, her work is beautiful too! I could possibly use some prints but am having difficulties choosing. 9/24/17 do you collect the art cards that BPAL sends out? Any in particular that you are looking for or definitely don't need? I do not collect them. I haven't made a lab purchase in a long while either Do you like this beautiful art, and she makes stickers and prints...SOOOO gorgeous: https://www.shannatr...om/paperprints/ Wow those are so beautiful!!! I particularly like: https://www.shannatrumbly.com/paperprints/beeting-hearts https://www.shannatrumbly.com/paperprints/the-cosmos-keepers-1 Favorite animals or wild creatures or mythological creatures? I love raccoons. I know love for trash pandas is super weird but I love them anyway. I also love horses, owls, and peacocks. As for the mythical, I've always loved unicorns, dragons, and phoenixes. would you like any swag from the Depeche Mode concert? (pins, posters, shirts, program, dunno what they'll have!) ​No thanks Is anyone interested in the new Resistance scents that the Lab just released (Take a Knee and SN: Flor de Maga)? ​Take a Knee sounds great! Is anyone here into zero waste, plastic free living, urban homesteading, or any simplicity/minimalism-esque lifestyles? If so, could you use any tools or equipment? ​Nothing that I can think of. 9/23/17 Are you interested in anything from Bath & Bodyworks? Which products and scents do you like? www.bathandbodyworks.com/ ​I'm well stocked on the three wick candles which are the main things I get from there other than soap, but I usually make soap decisions on the fly. I am possibly going to a crystal / gem show tomorrow. I can't afford expensive gem stones, but... What kind of crystals would you like? ​I've mentioned lots of crystals down below, but really anything that you think might feel right is appreciated. Pumpkin or Zucchini bread? ​No pumpkin for me please, chocolate zucchini on the other hand is delicious, but depending on where my lovely witch is from may not fair well in the postal system. What kind of homemade cookies are your favorite? Peanut butter, or peanut butter chocolate chip. Could you use a muscle rub? (We make ours on the lunar cycle and it has menthol, wintergreen, habanero, cayenne, olive oil, st. john's wort, arnica, beeswax, calendula, and ginger. It tingles. We call it "Thunder Butter". If you have really really super sensitive skin, I would recommend against it. And don't take a hot shower or open all of your pores before using it.) ​I could always use a muscle rub. I'm nearly always in some sort of muscle discomfort - so I'd use the heck out of that. Interested in trying some of our rose petal (rose petals, sugar, everclear) or lavender vanilla bean (lavender, vanilla bean, vodka) liqueur? ​Those sound amazing but alas with an alcohol allergy not the greatest idea Want some honey from the bees on our property? ​I'm well stocked on honey for the moment. Would you like some homemade jam? I have blackberry, rose petal, strawberry rhubarb, peach, and cherry. ​I love jam. As long as there's no pineapple I'm down. How about some homemade candied jalapenos with garlic cloves? I have regular and with habanero. ​That sounds amazing!!! I love all of those things. I didn't dry any apples this year but I was thinking of heading over to Green Bluff and seeing if any honeycrisps are left. I have a commercial dehydrator so let me know if you are interested in any "Apple Crips" (as voodoocatwoman calls them!) I wash, peel, core, and slice before dehydrating. ​I do love a good dehydrated apple so I'd be open to that. Do you need any kind of dice bag, tote, project bag, cosmetic bag, pencil bag, or whatever? I have lots of bag patterns and fabric. We make bags under the name Twinkle N Twilight. Or how about a couple of pillowcases? ​I'm good on bags, I usually use things until they die, and nothing's dead yet (fingers crossed things stay that way). Same with pillowcases. 9/22/17 Would my witchee like this to warm up the fall coffee cup?? https://www.truelemo...gory-s/1871.htm Not really my thing - I've never been into apple cider that much. do you like to take baths? if so, do you like oils, salts, things that fizz, all of the above, none of the above? I LOVE baths!!! I'm less found of oils in the tub (because I'm lazy and hate cleaning the bathtub more than I have to) but love salts and things that fizz or bubble. What style/make/etc of phone do you have? What about size of tablet? Laptop? Would you like decals, skins, or cases for any of these? I have a Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017 version). It has a boring black case on it right now. I'm totally open to a new nerdy case for it, but I've found finding cases for it to be difficult. I also have a Microsoft Surface which I could use a nice case for but currently do not have. 9/21/17 See's Candy. My absolute favorite. They have special Halloween candy..any of these pique your interest?? Cinnamon Apple Scotch Mallows, Pumpkin spice truffles, pumpkinspice lollypops, caramel apple lollypops, or any other of their chocolates, etc? ​The caramel apple lollypops sound delicious but I can't seem to find an ingredient list - if there's dairy its a no go (but then again if it only might contain dairy I'll be fine but actual dairy in food gives me hives). Are any witchees into coloring books? No, I've had multiple people try to get me into them for de-stressing (because I'm a fairly stressed out person) but I find them stressful because I feel the ned to colour them in perfectly. Witchees, is there anything that catches your eye at Animi Causa (https://www.animicausa.com/shop/)? This is genius! https://www.animicausa.com/shop/Moby-Lid-Silicone-Lid/tpflypage.tpl.html And holy crap there's so much cute stuff there! If I were to find an adorable autumnal/Halloween-y dish/flatware/etc. design, how many settings would be needed in your household? ​I don't really need new dishes nor do I have the space 9/20/17 Do you like Broadway shows/music? If so what are some of your favorites and/or ones that you hope to see or listen to eventually? Would you like merch from your favorite shows or CDs from shows you want to listen to? ​YES!!!!!! I love all the Broadway shows! I want to see Hamilton (yes I'm super basic), I'd love to see Phantom live, Funny Girl is one of my all time favourite musicals, I also love Wicked, Book of Mormon, Spamalot, Chicago, and tons more. My first musical ever was Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. And the only musical I've ever seen that I didn't enjoy much was Cats (I just really dislike Memory). I'm heading to NYCC in October! Is there anything I can get my Witchee while I'm there? ​Can't think of anything specific but con stuff is always cool! I'm going to Edmonton Expo this weekend (It's Edmonton's version of comic con). Would a witchee like anything from there? ​This is my question so I don't think I really need to answer it. LOL. Anything catch your eye from this site (globalgirlfriend.com)? ​Some of those infinity scarves are absolutely gorgeous! Do you have any favorite, lesser-known stores? Especially ones that sell hand-crafted or independently made items. ​Not online ones, I have a few favourite local boutiques to Edmonton but Imagine you're going to the most gigantic art & craft show imaginable, and money is no object - what kind of things would you gravitate towards and probably spend money on? Include as specific as you want to get! Knitted or crocheted sweaters (I'm currently working on my first crocheted sweater - it seems to be going alright at the very least). I love the look and feel of over sized grandfather like sweaters, both cardigans and over the head ones. ​I also am always entranced by jewelry. I love gemstone pendants so I'd probably pick up the ones that felt right for me. I used to only gravitate towards stones for love and self-love but honestly I'm in love and happy so I don't feel the need for that I've been struggled with a lot of fatigue lately so maybe some root chakra grounding stones would be useful/what I need to gravitate towards. The last thing I'm always drawn to at art/craft shows are body products. I love small batch, handmade lotions and soaps. 9/19/17 Are you interested in anything from Think Geek? http://www.thinkgeek.com I LOVE think geek. So basically anything from any of my fandoms would make me happy Actually, I'm pretty happy in general, think geek stuff would just make me extra happy. Do you have something you wish you put on your original questionnaire/forgot to put/would like to add on to? ​Not that I can think of. Any additional misc. information about yourself you want your Witch to know? (I think this was on the survey, but again if there's something that you forgot...) Nope. If you could decorate your house (or one room) in any one theme, what would it be? Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. Nerd. Bascially that's my decorating style anyway, but I just like to mix and match fandoms in my decorating. Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? ​I was literally just talking about this with the BF the other day. I bake and cook a lot and said I really should have an apron to complete my domestic goddess thing. By no means am I actually a domestic goddess, but we joke about that all the time since I'm almost always trying out a new recipe, or crocheting something like a baby blanket or hats for all the babies in my life right now. So after I rambled with that ridiculous story, I would definitely be open to a cooking apron, preferably something with a pocket in the front, but could be nerdy or cute. But really an apron could be very useful. BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) Not really my thing. 9/18/17 It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? ​I have a love/hate relationship with socks. I often don't like wearing them around the house because I love bare feet, but my feet are also always freezing so I should wear them more frequently. That being said I always love wearing knee high/over the knee socks with boots, I prefer not to have true woolen socks as they're a little itchy. I should note I have large calves for my size (I'm usually a size 10ish - but slowly losing weight but my calves are still large at about 16 inches circumference) so socks with cool patterns often look awful on me. I do love a good textural pattern like cabling on socks though. In my regular shoes I prefer ankle socks, but those get taken off the moment I'm in the door basically. Would you be open to previously-loved books? I would be - a good used bookstore is such a magical place. What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? ​I'm totally down for that! So what are your favorite fandoms? ​There are too many to list so I'll pick the BIG ones. Mass Effect, Doctor Who, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, and Alien. 9/17/17 I'm in France at the moment, is there anything here you might like? I'm in Provence, the land of lavender, so if you like that flower in particular just say so! I Love lavender so much! I'd be down for lavender anything. are you into divination? What kind(s) do you currently do? Do you want more books and/or tools for that type (e.g. new tarot cards, new runes)? Is there a new type of #divination you've been meaning to try, and if so, are you looking for the tool, a book on the subject, or both? ​I read tarot and oracle cards (not particularly well and only for myself). I haven't been looking for anything specifically but I do love pretty tarot or oracle decks World my Witchee be interested in a Tarot or Astrology reading done personally? ​For sure - I think they're super neat - years ago I had an astrology birthchart done by greenwoodtree and it was amazing!!! I'd totally be open to a new one now that I'm about to turn 27. Does my Witchee need any magical supplies? ​Nothing that I can think of in particular right now. Would you be interested in any of the seasonal (or regular) soaps from Cellar Door Soap (https://cellardoorbathsupply.com)? I do love a good soap. That lavender pumpkin soap sounds divine (I'm only food allergic to pumpkin, topical is fine - my chronic illness is super weird). So does the pumpkin chai latte. That place seems amazing - really I'd be down to try anything https://cellardoorbathsupply.com/collections/bar-soaps/products/lavender-pumpkin-bar-soap https://cellardoorbathsupply.com/collections/bar-soaps/products/pumpkin-chai-latte-bar-soap 9/16/17 Favorite gemstones? ​I love gemstones! I don't have any rose quartz for some reason, because I haven't quite found the right piece for it yet. I love the amethysts I have, a green adventurine pendant, smokey quartz. I also love the look of selenite. I really do just like gemstones of all types though If you enjoy jewelry do you like discrete and elegant, flashy and gaudy, small and light, or large and chunky? ​I much prefer understated jewelry, simple pendants, small rings. Gaudy and chunky aren't really my style. I hate large stones on rings and things that can get caught on things. While I enjoy a large gemstone pendant the rest of my jewelry is very minimalist. Any love of pirates or SCA? ​Pirates are cool but I don't have an obsession or anything. Is there anything you would like from Disney World? Disney is super cool! Are you a Potterhead? If so, to which house do you belong? HUGE Potterhead!!! I'm definitely a Ravenclaw, although my boyfriend and I are in a constant debate about how Gryffindor I am (I think I'm not, he says I am because it's pretty brave to move across the country by myself, twice, for school). He's a Hufflepuff, and I'd say Hufflepuff is my secondary house if I had to choose. How do you feel about chokers? I love how they look, but hate how they feel. Maybe I'm just not wearing the right kind? 9/15/17 Here's a few questions from me: Would you like some Halloween or other themed decor in the form of a banner, something like this http://www.etsy.com/...n-decor-vintage? If so, would you prefer a traditional style or a vertical door type? ​I don't really have room in my condo for that Do you live near a Trader Joe's? If not, are you interested in trying any of the numerous Pumpkin goodies they come out with this time every year? No, but I LOVE trader joes!! Their chili lime dried mango pieces are the greatest! I'm down for any vegan snacks from there But unfortunately no pumpkin as I'm allergic. Do you like to cook and/or bake? Could you use any specific ingredients (spices, oils, salts, extracts, etc.) or kitchen utensils/gadgets? I LOVE cooking and baking!!!! I'm always open to interesting spices and flavourings. As for kitchen gadgets/utensils, I've gotten into making pies recently, but I don't have a pie lifter. I'm at Ocean City MD for bike week......would a witches want anything from here? Bike or beach related?? ​Not that I can think of What is 1 thing you would love to see in your final box? Can be ANYTHING - your choice. ​I'd love to see the name of my witch if s/he is willing to tell me because I'd like to thank them properly. Who would love some USPS eclipse stamps? No thanks - I'd totally lose stamps. 9/14/17 Do any of you potential Witchees have any kitties, puppers, or youngling humans you want spoiled in your packages? What treats or toys do they like? I have a kitty! Merlin loves toys on sticks, and stuffed things. He's very easy to please Is there any interest in any of the fragrance oils from the Nocturne Alchemy Weenies update? ​I've never really liked Nocturne Alchemy - something in their carrier oil does weird things on my skin. Is there anything you want from the trading post (or trading post etsy) that is available to order right now? (Fatherhood, Puppers, normal GC things) Zip Line and Wednesday's Child is Full of Woe perfumes sound amazing!!! Basically any claw polish - I LOVE painting my nails UGH Massage oil - that stuff is the greatest and I've run out of mine! TKO Massage oil - what a great sleepy time scent! 9/13/17 Are you a gamer? If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?- If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? ​I'm a huge gamer!!!! I'm a console gamer (ps4). Currently my boyfriend and I are obsessed with Destiny 2 and are playing that almost every night together. I also LOVE Mass Effect (my boyfriend recently got me a stuffed grunt to go with my Garrus pop figure in my living room), Dragon Age, Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Legend of Zelda. I'm itching to get my hands on a Nintendo Switch which has been very difficult but when I finally buy one I know my time will be taken up by Breath of the Wild. There are some games on my Amazon wishlist linked above if that helps How do you feel about the following scarf options (assuming you're into scarves)? Simple eyelet scarf Chevron scarf Lacy and fuzzy Skinny rib knit (extra long for lots of wrapping) Leafy! I love knitted and crocheted scarves, but I live in Edmonton where it feels like winter lasts for 8 months and it gets down to -30 celicius regularly meaning that the beautiful eyelet and lacy scarves aren't as practical here. But really I love scarves and will find a use for any kind. I really love infinity scarves in particular though Like beer? What styles most appeal to you? Allergic unfortunately Like booze? What kinds? Ditto above Like Wine? What kinds? Ditto above Would you be interested in a set of hand-made hair falls? It's something I do for fun and I can make any length and do an array of colors! ​Not really my thing but they sound pretty cool. For those who watch certain movies every year for Halloween, what are those movies, whether horror or not? Any favorite horror movies that aren't necessarily on the annual-viewing list? How do you feel about fan-made merch for these movies? Rocky Horror Picture Show is a staple as is Practical Magic. I don't really like horror films, although I won't say no to a viewing of Carrie or Alien. Fan-merch is totally fine by me 9/12/17 Here's a great local soapmaker I love--y'all see anything you would like? https://littleseedfarm.com/ That soap maker looks super cool. Everything looks great but I avoid goats milk in things because of the whole vegan thing, but the body oils look lovely: https://littleseedfarm.com/collections/all/products/organic-essenitial-oil-body-lotion-alternative(in citrus or lavender) What are your favorite/preferred Halloween/autumn icons/images? Any to specifically stay away from? ​I love cats so I always have an affinity for the traditional black cat imagery. Do you eat candy, and if so would Halloween candy be welcome? Specialty candy from local or unusual sources? Chocolate? I love candy, from the super cheap to the specialty kind. I also love chocolate although sometimes it's difficult to get some without milk (if it says may contain milk I'm find but I do avoid ones with milk in the actual ingredients). Do you want Fidget spinners, desk toys, or other frivolous things that you look at and decide you don't need enough to spend $ on but would make you happy to have? ​Nothing I can think of thanks. Any zentangle lovers, people who would like to try it, or would you want a piece of someone else's zentangle art? Not my thing either. Any love of hair toys, clips, ribbons, fascinators, mini hats, etc? ​I have really long hair but don't really do a lot with it other than ponytails, braids, and wearing it down. If you find something that will help me do more with it I'm totally into that. Plus I'm in the middle of growing out my bangs and it's driving me wild! What local goodies may be of interest? Local Honey, jams,candy? ​Jams and candy are always good bets for me. I don't really need anymore honey though - I've got a great local supplier when necessary. Are you interested in any prescription services like serial magazines, Birch box, ipsy? ​I love subscriptions but have never gotten any myself. I know vegan cuts does a beauty box and a food box, and there's some cool looking yoga ones and underwear ones, but I've never made the dive into them. They seem super cool though! Would you like funky Halloweenie costume makeup like Gothic eyelashes, nail effects, black lipstick, etc.? I don't really dress up - I haven't done anything special for Halloween in years. Although this year the plan is to hang with my boyfriend and his friends like they usually do. How do you like to listen to music? CD, 8 track tape, mix tape, Pandora or Spotify, I-tunes? I use Spotify all the time. I'm rarely not listening to music. Do you prefer reading on Kindle or actual book? What kind of books do you like? Would you like to be surprised with a scary, classic, horror book? ​I prefer physical books but will read online sometimes as well. I love books in general but do not tend towards horror with the exception of Poe and I have his full collected works. Candles, Incense, or wax tarts? Do you have favorite brands or Weenies scents for the home? Would you like to receive a wax tarts burner, incense burner, essential oils diffuser, or Halloweenie themed candle holders? ​I'm a candle and diffuser person. I don't have any specific desires for either, but I'm not adverse to them either. But the diffuser oils need to be pure essential oils for my machine. Witchee: are you interested in crafting materials? ​I'm always down for more yarn but other than that I'm not the biggest crafter, I sew but not particularly often anymore. 9/11/17 I'm in Japan, is there anything specific from here you would want? ​I don't know enough about things from Japan to make any requests. How do you feel about nail wraps? Never tried them, but they look super cool! if you were to receive something hand knit, what type of item would you like? hat, cowl, handwarmers, etc. and what color(s)? - would you use knitted washcloths? a scarf? Are you allergic or sensitive to any fibers? ​I love all knitted/crocheted things, I have a drawer at work dedicated to sweaters and arm warmers because my office is so bloody cold all the time. I prefer darker colours, jewel tones and/or neutrals but I'm pretty open. I love scarves and arm/handwarmers in particular. And socks. I'll never say no to a great pair of socks. If you could be ANY character from a film, TV show or book, who would it be and why? ​River Song from Doctor Who was my gut choice because she's so confident and sexy, two things that I'm not very good at being. Plus I have a major crush on Alex Kingston. If you could hop into a time machine and travel anywhere/anytime, where would it be and why? ​I don't actually know if I would go anywhere. Don't want to start a paradox and all that. If you could invite 3 famous people to a BPAL meet and sniff, who would invite? ​I honestly don't know. Do you like and/or want anything from Elements and Artifacts? You can be vague like "yes" or "no" or name specific past pieces you coveted or current ones you love, whatever works best. Her work is beautiful! I'm down for anything! Would you like something hand sewn by your Witch? A dress, shirt, skirt, infinity scarf, something else? Anyone want any kind of costuming accessories or makeup or odds and ends? No thanks - they wouldn't get enough use for me. 9/10/17 Are there any hobbies or crafts you've been thinking of trying, but haven't had the chance yet? ​Not that I can think of Would you want to receive a custom spell kit or magical tea? If so, what purpose would you want it to be for? ​I can't think of a spell I need to do right now. I'm in a pretty good place. Do you like poetry? In song lyrics yes, but other than that not so much. Anyone like handmade critters, stuffed animals, or custom repaints? ​I do have a lot of nerdy things around my apartment to begin with - other nerdy friends would not be turned away. Would you enjoy any designer/specialty yarn for your own craftyness? ​I love yarn - I've never made anything with super special yarn but since I've really gotten into crocheting I'm always down for more yarn. Would anyone like a donation made in their name to a cause or charity? ​I'm always in support of places that promote safer sex and are sex positive. That or donations in the name of public health initiatives are great. Please do not donate to the Goldwater Institute for me - my PhD research focuses on their organization a little and I particularly dislike them. Please provide wishes from the last two updates? TBA 9/9/17 Would you be interested in things from Future Primitive? (http://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/) ​I once got a beautiful soap in a jar from there - it was amazing!!!! I'm always down for more or trying new bath and body products Are there any UK things you'd like to get? ​I can't think of anything specific right now. Are you into podcasts? If so, what are your favorites? Would you like any merch related to any of them? ​I do dabble in podcasts - I really like Make Out With Him, Sawbones, Stuff you Should Know. But I'm not into any of them enough to love merch. Would you like something from Nui Cobalt Designs (https://nuicobaltdesigns.com/)? ​I love Nui Cobalt!!! They have the most beautiful talismans, I'm open to anything from there - except earrings because my ears are too sensitive to wear earrings. Or maybe some of Christina's lovely Halloween candles at Sihaya & Co. (https://www.sihayaan...lection-candles)? I love a goo candle, but shipping to Canada may be very pricey. ILNP? Who would love one of their awesome holos like MEGA or one of their amazing chromes? http://www.ilnp.com/ THOSE ARE GORGEOUS!!!! I love nail polishes and I don't have any holos or chromes because I often just wear solid crème colours. 9/8/17 Do you enjoy stationery? I'm thinking cute/quality notebooks, washi tape, stickers, fun pens etc. ​I love stationary - I don't use stickers very much, but I love good notebooks/journals and pens! Are you interested in anything from Cocoa Pink? - Or Haus of Gloi? ​I've never tried Cocoa Pink but again open to try. I love Haus of Gloi - their pumpkin butters are amazing!!! I love moon dog from them and am definitely willing to try almost anything. Would you be interested in a Halloween wreath? Unfortunately there's no where to put it in my condo and it can't go on the outside of my front door due to condo regulations Have you seen this: https://www.bustle.c...llection-80733? (Lush Halloween collection.) And what would you like? ​I love lush - that lip tint looks nice as does that black cat bubble bar. 9/7/17 Are you interested in anything from the Moonalisa Halloween update? ​I've never tried any Moonalisa - I'm open to trying anything though What are your coffee and/or tea preferences? - Coffee: whole beans or ground? Not a coffee fan - Flavor and roast preferences? - Tea: black, green, herbal, flavors? - Loose leaf or tea bags? - Anything specific you don't like? - Are you in need of any gadgetry? ​I LOVE tea!!! I have an obscenely large collections - and I'll drink almost anything. I prefer loose leaf, but will not turn up my nose at bagged tea. The only types of tea that I will not drink are things with pineapple (obviously due to my allergy) and chamomile (it makes my throat itchy).

    Scents for thesis defense?

    I also used some TALs for my thesis defence. I used a combination of Lionheart and French Creole. Really I just suggest picking something that makes you feel confident and calming.

    Pink Snowballs Bath Oil

    This is lovely! I understand the comparisons to Snow White as they both have a similar feel. There's a bright, fresh rose on top of a frosty vanillic creaminess. This is wonderful!! This isn't like anything I have in my wheelhouse perfume wise or bath product wise and so will get a lot of use.

    Winter Maiden Bath Oil

    Initially this is a little cloying and very floral, not just rose to my nose but general floral. Honestly I was definitely a little frightened at first. However, my fears were unfounded. This is definitely still a rose scent, but it's a beautiful rose, softened and sweetened by the amber. I can pick up the woods in the background, but I feel like they are there to ground the scent. This is a little chilly feeling, but not super cold, definitely less cold feeling than ice princess. The bergamot mingles with the rose making this feel very refined and almost haughty. It's a regal scent. It is like nothing I already own, but I seriously love it! I can see this getting a lot of use during the spring time. I use this as a post bath/shower moisturizer like all of my bath oils. This soaks in quickly and leaves a scent for at least a day. They save my dry, scaley, winter skin.

    Snow Angel Atmosphere Spray

    I love this! It's a super fresh and light scent. It's quite fruity and I can definitely pick up the tea with some floral but really it reminds me of a refreshing drink on a hot summer day because it is slightly chilly without being truly cold.

    Ice Princess Bath Oil

    Iced blackberries, blackcurrant honey, frozen white peach, and sweet vanilla cream. I think this would appeal to those who like commercial perfumes. That isn't to say that it smells like a commercial blend but something about the frozen sharpness is reminiscent of that type of perfume. This is so much better though. It's fruity and berry like at first with a huge hit of frozen peach. It's not a fresh juicy peach but more like an icy Bellini scent. As it dries down that near floral feel I'm getting from the blend mellows and it sweetens up a little. The vanilla emerges and blends with the berries to create a lovely chilly, soft scent. I'm loving this and as usual using it as a post shower moisturizer is fantastic. It soaks in quickly and feels AMAZiNG! Yay for non scaly skin! ETA: The next morning it is musky, sweet and just absolutely gorgeous and still strongly scented.

    Patchouli Clove Massage Oil

    I love this! As usual the formula is fantastic! It soaks in nicely, moisturizes beautiful and leaves a lovely scent behind. I was a little apprehensive about this oil as I was worried that I would encounter the #OWS patch, but it was no where to be found. It's definitely a patch heavy scent, as to be expected, but it's lovely woody patch combination which with the addition of the clove creates a lovely warmth and comfort in the scent.

    Sudsy She-Wolf Bath Oil

    OM NOM NOM NOM!!!!! Seriously! This is absolutely delectable. I usually like my sweeter/foodie scents tempered with something else darkish (like leather, patch or incense) however this is glorious. In the bottle and immediately on the skin it's very chocolate and hazelnut heavy. However this changes every quickly and settles down to a fairly fig heavy scent. It's sweet and the fig reads almost floral on the skin in combination with the pine. In the background there's still some hazelnut, coffee and chocolate. It's gorgeous! The half bottle that I purchased will in no way be enough to satiate my new found love of this. It's not as heavy as many of the other bath oils (scent wise) which is perfect for me as the throw on those can sometimes be overwhelming when going out in public. I love this and know that it will become a regular in my rotation of lotions/oils and moisturizers.

    La Lugubre Gondola

    OMG this is absolutely beautiful! This is definitely predominately amber-like - very reminiscent of the Lion which I enjoyed. However instead of being an amber SN like the Lion ended up being on my skin this blooms into a sweet, slightly musky, slightly spicy work of art. The labdanum and oudh do there wonderful slight incense-y thing on my skin to give the scent that edge of spice and incense. They support the amber and together make the most beautiful scent. It really feels like a piece of music - amber is the melody (probably a piano or a violin in most music pieces) and the labdanum and oudh serve as integral deeper instruments like percussion and cellos. It's absolutely gorgeous!

    Csárdás Macabre

    Red musk, myrrh, peru balsam, Chinese geranium, and tobacco absolute. In the bottle: WOAH! Red musk!!! Smells like a red musk single note in the bottle. On: it's definitely still a red musk heavy scent. It's drier and less sweet than Smut and less spicy than Scheherazade. It's got an almost slightly floral feel without screaming FLOWERS which I think is what I'm interpreting the Chinese geranium as. The myrrh is pretty strong as well as it lends a slight incensey feel and the dryness I was picking up earlier. Eventually I pick up the tobacco which is one of my favourite notes. It's smoky and musky but still decidedly feminine. I really enjoy this in theory - It's a lovely scent and really well blended. Unfortunately the red musk tends to amp on me so I don't think this is a work scent as it's a little heavy and has a pretty strong throw. It's not a bad scent by any means just a little much for me. This is a heavy, sexy scent, without the same amount of raunch I got from Smut.

    Hair Loosened and Soiled in Mid Orgies Hair Gloss

    First sniff: Uh oh! This smells like sharp honey and since my skin destroys honey into a powdery disaster I was nervous. It was musky, sweet and slightly sharp. Later on it morphs into the most lovely musk - definitely sexy. The honey is still there but doesn't turn to powder or disaster. Formula wise it was wonderful just like all the other hair glosses I've tried. A couple of squirts on dry or damp hair and the scent stays for hours (if not days) and makes my hair shiny but not weighed down and helps to keep away any tangles on my BSL hair. ETA: the scent doesn't last as long as Snake Oil (that lasts days - sometimes even through washes) but does last around 24 hours or so with only one squirt. By that time the honey has really mellowed out and I'm left with a sweet musk. It's not really a raunchy post orgy scent, but certainly mysterious and sexy.

    Recommendations for a delicate unisex scent?

    Jareth (Ethereal lilac fougere and gleaming leather with ti leaf, tonka absolute, white musk, and oudh. )is something that strikes me as a unisex debauched but proper at the same time kind of thing. It's unimpable but positively wonderful.

    White Rabbit

    As usual I'm thwarted by the honey in this blend Honey and my skin just don't get along - things with honey smell lovely in the bottle, but then on my skin amp to cloyingly sweet proportions and overwhelm just about any other note in a blend. Due to that fact about my skin chemistry please take this review with a huge grain of salt if honey behaves on your skin. This had the potential to be soooooo lovely on my skin. I love linen scents, tea scents, ginger, pepper and I have no problem with milk or cream scents usually. However, the instant this hits my skin the honey explodes and takes over absolutely everything! Well not everything, I think I can pick up some ginger but really this is a super cloying honey SN on my skin, I may be able to rock it in a scent locket. I will try to remember to update when I test it out.

    Byron v13

    This is such a BEAUTIFUL scent. It's a nice earthy, grounded leather. It's not a sharp new one, but rather something that's well worn and lived in. It's definitely spicier and less powdery on me than A Bachelor's Dog, but I would guess that this has a healthy dash of tobacco in it as well as the leather and smattering of spice. It's sweet ish, but it feels like that sweetness may come from a musk rather than vanilla. This is what I thought Haute Macabre would smell like on me (minus patchouli in this). Seriously, this is sooooo lovely!
