    Fall 2012 Switch Witch Help

    Hi! Thank you so much for choosing to play Switch Witch, and for getting me as a partner and not screaming and running, haha! I have had a huge lapse in posting for the past ~year or so, but I'm trying to amp my posting up now so you have some more material to work with. All I get in the mail these days is bills (physical mail and email too for that matter), so I'd love anything and everything you'd like to send my way! I am so amped about this and I cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve! I'll be using this blog post as a repository for the questions asked in the Chatter thread, to the best of my ability. My blog also has the 2011 Fall SW questions in it, for a bonus round of information. Can't wait to talk to you! (well, kind of? haha.) The only drawback that perhaps might put a kink in your plans is that I don't drink or enjoy tea or coffee. I make up for my lack of culture taste beverage appreciation with a heartfelt and enthusiastic love of just about anything and everything else, though! So no worries at all! 01. Do you like s'mores and s'mores-flavored things? Absolutely! I like just about any confection, really. I have a huge sweet tooth! 02. What's the neatest freebie you've gotten? It can be cool or thoughtful or just totally unexpected, and not limited to BPALdom. My cat was a freebie, does he count? Ha. I'd say frimps in general - I always get the sweetest most unexpected goodies inside my BPAL packages, and it makes opening mail such a fun experience amongst all of the bills and spam catalogs in my mailbox! Would you enjoy receiving cute but useful items like colorful kitchen utensils/gadgets, or bento supplies? (boxes, chopsticks, accessories, etc?) What about things like spice mixes (homemade, or Penzey's for example) Yes! I adore kitchen implements, especially when they are cute. And I do love spice mixes, but nothing too spicy. I'd love something to marinate a steak in! RE: Lucyboo's wild rice I might die of excitement. I've been hearing about this and I would love to try it! Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear? Absolutely, but nothing too thick. In Georgia it never gets cold enough (in my tastes, anyway). I'm a 2X, generally. What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc? All of it, but no dark chocolate or nuts. Everything else is free game. I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places? Trader Joe's makes these gummy bears that are the most delicious confection out there. I've thought about buying some from eBay, they are that good, and I live nowhere near one. I also just love fun little organic cookies in general, like TJ's animal crackers that are just cats. Are home made foods acceptable or does the idea of eating strange mailed food disturb you? Mail away all the strange food your heart desires! I just gave you $20 and sent you into a "has everything" store ala Walmart and told you that you have to come out having spent it all, and none of it on anything you need. What would you buy? Be as specific as possible! Hmm. Probably a few bottles of nail polish, a new one of those emery boards that has like 6 sides, a new collar for Pixel, and I'd put the rest toward that cool purple Brita pitcher I keep seeing. What kind of cuisines do you like? (I mentioned this in my ?aire but curious what my witch may like) And, what are your favorite restaurants? I love Italian and Chinese. Pizza of all shapes and sizes, especially! what are your "fandoms" and would you like a t-shirt from TeeFury if an appropriate one came up? My Little Pony; Harry Potter (Ravenclaw) are my 2 big ones. Sure on the t-shirts: I'm a 2X. Do you have an eReader and if so which one? I have a Kindle Touch. Do you like candles, or tart burners, or something? If so, what's your favorite scent to burn? Both! I am not a big fan of foody scents or atmospheric/florals. Marzipan? No thanks. Do you drink alcohol and if so, would you be OK with your witch sending you homemade infused vodka? Sure! If your witch is a knitter, crocheter or sewer, is there a particular type of garment you would love to receive (hat, scarf, wrap, cowl, socks, fingerless gloves, arm warmers etc)? I would love a pair of fingerless/flappy gloves or a scarf, in Ravenclaw colors! Is there anyone else in your house (kids, pets, partner) that would really appreciate a small gift being included for them in the switchwitchy haul so they don't feel left out? Mr Pixel Would you be interested in having a bat adopted in your name? I'd love to have a lion adopted in my name! I've been getting into indie nail polish brands recently. What's your favorite indie brand of nail polish? Or what's your favorite mainstream brand of nail polish? Or are you not big on polish? I looooooooove nail polish. Any and all! Stuffed things: yea or nay? Always wanted a Squishable. Are there any crafts/skills you've wanted to learn but haven't gotten around to? And if so, would you be interested in supplies and tutorials? A nice harmonica would be nice: I've been learning on a dinky one. Witchee, what are your favorite quotes? "I don't consider myself a cynic. I think of myself as a skeptic and a realist. But I understand the word 'cynic' has more than one meaning, and I see how I could be seen as cynical. 'George, you're cynical.' Well, you know, they say if you scratch a cynic you find a disappointed idealist. And perhaps the flame still flickers a little, you know?" - George Carlin OK, so those of you who said you wouldn't mind receiving (sneakily packaged!) beer or wine: Tell me of your taste preferences. Dry/sweet? Red/white? Lager/ale/porter/stout? Fruit? Spice? Hops? Sour (brettanomyces, etc)? Sweet, the less it tastes like booze the better Witchee, will you be gone from your normal mailing address at any point during the round? Nope! Are you a Disney fan or does even thinking about Disney make your head hurt? If you're into Disney, would you like something from the Happiest Place on Earth ? I love Disney, especially anything Lion King Do you lust after some new socks/tights? Socks are always loved. Not a tights fan.

    Winter Holiday Swap 2011 Questions

    Hi! I'm so glad you got me as your swap partner and I can't wait to see what you come up with! I'm a grad student with 2 jobs on top of school, so I'm not the best at reading the topic. If you can somehow politely nudge me if I haven't answered a question you need, please do so! So... someone has gifted you a $20 gift card from Walgreen's to ONLY use on things for yourself. No necessities here. What do you buy? One of those Oil of Olay knock-off Clairsonics. I've always wanted to try one! I live near a brick and morter location for a really, really good spice store. Would you use cooking spices and if you would, what would you need? (It's Penzey's if you want to Google it.) Anything we can marinate chicken in! Do you like knitted goods? If so, what would you like, what colors, and do you have any sensitivites or preference when it comes to type of yarn (ex: wool: yay or nay? Do you prefer machine washable materials? Do you not care?)? All I have are some very thin gloves. I would love a Gryffindor scarf! Do you do a Christmas tree? If yes is it themed or specially colored or do you just have all different ornaments and such? This year is my and my fiance's very first Christmas tree! Our third Christmas together, but the first we've been able to have a tree and are cohabitating! 7. Would you like a special ornament? Yes please - we have none! Tim Tams. Yay or nay? Oh, yay! Now, a question of my own: I know some people are squicked out at the idea of eating things that other people make, or the thought of deep fried cookies sends them into cardiac arrest. If you were my fox, would you like to receive some homemade goodies, or would you prefer that your goodies came from the store? I love homemade goodies. My lovely fluffy Snow Bunny, would you like a body scrub made by me? If so, what scent(s) would you like, if you had to think along the lines of essential oils? And would you prefer sugar or salt? A dryer scrub or one that's more oily/moist? I am a big sugar scrub fan! I'd love a bourbon vanilla one. Dear snow bunny, do you like candles? If yes, then what kind? Scented (what scents), unscented, what colors, do you like them plain/painted on the outside/with decorations attached to the surface/sculpted? I am a wax tart junkie. I don't like food-scented ones, but everything else is fair game! Socks! Slippers! Do you love them or not really wear them? If you love them, do you also love Sock Dreams? I will always take more socks! I love cute socks. Nothing too high though - no higher than mid-ankle please. Would you wear something like this if your Fox were to knit you one? If so, what color? Oh, absolutely! New question: talk to me of coffee. Whole bean? Ground? Flavored, not flavored? Decaf, whole caff? Favorite roasters? Drip, french press, keurig? BRING ON THE TEA? I don't like tea or coffee. *sad trombone music* I like cocoa! Who else here loves or would like to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics? If so, what would you like? Not a cosmetics fan. Anybody into nail polish? Any color or formula preferences? I am not a fan of nail polish. Is there any particular holiday DVD that you don't have that you would like to own? Classic Rankin-Bass specials, esp. Rudolph. How do you feel about superheros? Are you a Marvel or DC fan? Do you have a favorite hero? Not a big fan. Would my bunny like anything in particular from Lush? I do have access to an actual Lush store, and also wouldn't mind ordering retro items online. I don't like Lush. Do you have kids (or kid-like pets) who your fox may want to take into account, either in terms of a little extra goody or simple safety? No kids or pets. But a fiance who always likes to partake as well! Are you a Trader Joe's fan, who either doesn't have a store nearby or just loves their stuff and has a wishlist? Trader Joe's anything. Especially the candy. Oh, please. A big bag full of wax tarts and TJ candy might make me die of happiness. The Paintbox Soapworks Yules are up, or at least round one is (updates coming throughout the week). Interested in anything? I am weak and already bought the Holiday Stack! So no thank you, I am good on Paintbox! Will you be away for any part of the round? Nope! What type of books do you like? Dying to read anything? I am dying to read Maureen Johnson's "The Name of the Star," and Tamora Pierce's "Mastiff"! Sooo. Yules. Those just happened. What are you interested in, Bunny? I got decants of all the ones I want to try really badly, but I would love a 5 mL of Pink Snowballs! Any crafty pursuits you've been dying to experiment with? Would you like a little kit of something you've never tried? Do you need any particular items for your new or existing stash? I latch hook, so I will always take latch hook rug kits! I do need a "nice" divided box or some such to keep the yarn bits in, but my ziplock bag system is OK for now! Bunny, could you use a 2012 calendar, and, if so, do you like big monthly ones or the page-a-day type? My favorite calendar in the world is called "Cats Wearing Hats" or "Cats in Hats" or something like that. I am so depressed that my 2011 one is almost over. Are you a big ol' nerd for any particular subject? Science, math, linguistics, etc? Or particular authors/fandoms? Just Harry Potter. Does anyone have issues with gently used things like books, etc.? Not a problem in the least! A question: reveal, yes or no? If you are OK with it I'd like to know! Any favorite cuddly characters? I love Garfield. (but 80s, quadruped Garfield. I hate the anthropomorphic, bipedal one that has become modern). Charity gifts? Either fair-trade type stuff, or virtual type gifts, like vaccinations or school supplies being bought on your behalf, or something along those lines? I would adore it if someone were to adopt a lion in my name. Bunny, are you interested in tarts from Two Timing Tart? What scents, if any, are you interested in? Wax tarts, yes! I'd love to try the "sheets" scents, but pretty much anything non-foody! Favorites color- My favorite color to wear is purple or blue. My favorite colors are pink, red and purple. gemstone- Sapphire, ruby, aquamarine. animal- lions phobias- things in clusters (eg: lotus blossoms, beehives) If I were to send you chocolate is there anything I should avoid as in nuts, cherries etc.? Also, what are some of your favorite holiday candies? I love candy and am not too picky at all! I don't like dark chocolate, but the fiance loves it. I'd kill for a toffee chocolate orange - I can never find them anywhere! If your fox/bunny were to gift you with a giftcard from anywhere, as in any store foodwise, music wise etc. what giftcard would you like? Sock Dreams (never ordered from them and I need socks!) or barnes & noble if we're being impractical. Otherwise, Kroger!

    Fall 2011 Switch Witch Help

    Hi there! I'm so glad you got chosen to be my witch, whoever you are! I will keep editing this entry so that it's easy for you to see my answers to the daily questions and things! Please know that I am super easygoing and love just about anything. I am a graduate student, so mail is love! This is my first SW, but I've done a few forum swaps so far and I just love 'em! The only drawback that perhaps might put a kink in your plans is that I don't drink or enjoy tea or coffee. I make up for my lack of culture taste beverage appreciation with a heartfelt and enthusiastic love of just about anything and everything else, though! So no worries at all! Here is my Amazon wishlist. Everything on there is something I want and would love to have! I love and adore wax tarts. The only kinds I am not a huge fan of are blatantly foody ones. But anything else is fair game! Blow my house up with tarts and I would be just fine! *&@- I do have one thing! The day my fiance proposed to me, we were sitting on a blanket on a mountainside, drinking in the late evening. He got down on one knee and proposed, and we toasted our new relationship status with two old-fashioned bottled sodas. I have the caps to these sodas - an A&W Root Beer and a Peach Nihi - but I am at a loss with what to do with them! If you are artsy at all and have some sort of great idea of what to do with them - or know a nacho witch who will - I will gladly pay to have them shipped to somebody so they can get them to you! I think that might mean more to me than anything else this whole round! -@&* -- BPAL Wants -- BPAL Itself I really want 5 mLs of Quietude, Grr and Stardust. As for Weenies, I'd love Incubus Leaving Two Sleeping Women, Pumpkin Latte and Autumn Cider! I'll come back and edit this bit when I know some more! BPTP I love, love, love TKO massage oil. We are down to our last bottle so any of this would be so appreciated! I'd also love a BPAL t-shirt (size 2X - just a men's tee, I'm chubby) and maybe even some yoga pants. -- A lot of my daily products that I use come from Etsy, and I will always, always accept more! -- Paintbox Soapworks - I would love to try Gingermilk, Man in the Moon and almost any LE that is out! I have Smiling Jack and Indian Summer waiting in the wings. The fiance adores Avast!, though it might be taken down in the end of September. I have never tried a sorbetto, but would love to try one! Dressgreen - I use their bar shampoo, and can never get enough! I'd especially like to try their Chamomile & Calendula blend! They also make my moisturizer, "Calming & Clarifying Facial Cream". Bunnybutt Apothecary - This is where I get my deodorant! I can never have enough deodorant! You might think it's kinda silly, but please don't hesitate to send me deodorant! I have very sensitive armpits, and I love this stuff. Really! I'd like to try: East of Eden, Pirate Booty, Sucre Bleu, Hunnysuckle & Cherrybomb. Two Timing Tart - I haven't tried anything from her yet, but gosh I want to. I would love to try some of her tarts! The ones I'd like to try most are: Silk Sheets, Tease, Peacock Plumes and Satin Sheets. ---- Forum Questions! ---- Would you be interested in homemade edibles that are NOT sweets? Any specifics? I'm having a blonde moment and can't think of many edibles that aren't sweets! I do love homemade beef jerky! What GC do you live in mortal terror of the lab discontinuing, but never get around to buying? My absolutely favorite is Dorian. I would weep buckets if it were ever discontinued. Yo, yarnies! Do you Ravelry? If so, who are you over thar? I'm yewberry there, too. I'm not a yarnie, no worries there! Do you like knitted goodies? If so, what would you like and what colors? I would love a Gryffindor scarf! Oh, and a pair of gloves! I don't own any and I walk to campus/work. Who's into nail polish? What colors/brands? Nope. Is there a quote (or lyric or part of a poem) that really resonates with you or is your favorite? My favorite quote is, "They say if you scratch a cynic, you find a disappointed idealist." - George Carlin Dream candle? Scent, color, type (tealight, votive, pillar, jar, etc.), throw... I'm not a huge candle burner but I LOVE wax tarts. Love, love love them. Weenies? The ones I want to try that I didn't buy are in my wishlist. Which do you use, a PC or a Mac? PC. What is your favorite animal? Lions! What are you going to be for Halloween? I don't know! Last year, the fiance and I were Tetris blocks. How do you feel about nick-knacks? I love them. What traditions (family, holiday, or otherwise) are important to you? I love Christmas and Autumn because of the sense of community that comes out of the woodwork. I love giving gifts! Do you like going to the movies? Yeah! We have an AmStar a town over and we go once in a blue moon. I adore it. What are your favorite restaurants? Sylvia's is my favorite non-chain restaurant. The boything and I unashamedly love Chili's and Applebees. Do you play any video games? Sure! Sims 3: Pets comes out in October and I am almost beside myself waiting for it. Haven't preordered it yet, but I will soon! I am a PC gamer - on Steam as "twystedfate," and my wishlist is there, though it's admittedly short at the moment. I also have a 3DS and love GameStop. Do you like any anime? Not at all. If you could have a piece of oil painting jewelry (pendant, pair of earrings, or ring) with absolutely anything painted on it, what would it be? (If you prefer wall art instead, same question as above.) I'd love wall art more than jewelery, I think! I'm not too picky. My bedroom is done in shades of blue and brown and our kitchen is red. Do you have an E-reader/iPad/something similar that you need a cover/case for? All my gadgets and gizmos have cases. How would you like to receive some of your Witch's favorite recipes, tailored to your likes/dietary restrictions? And specific wants? We cook primarily via crock pot, so if you have any of those recipes, feel free to share! Do you need any boxes to store your smellies in? What would you store in said hypothetical box--imps, bottles, supplies, all of the above? I have a lovely box from CaudaPavonis! Muppets: yea or nay? Nuh-uh. Do you have an affinity for Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, The Far Side, and other comic strips? If so, which is your favorite? I love old-school Garfield. From the 80s, when he walks on four legs like a normal cat? I adore Garfield knick-nacks. Favorite Mythological Creature? Unicorns or dragons. Do you like hair things barrettes, headbands, flowers...? My kingdom for a hair band that doesn't pinch the crap out of my head. I don't use showy hair stuff, though. Do you like to burn incense? If so, what are your favorite kinds...sticks? cones? resins? What are your favorite scents? Just wax tarts. Harry Potter - a fan? If so, what house are you? I love HP! I am a Gryffindor consistently (both LJ sorting communities as well as Pottermore itself!). I love HP stuff! If you were to receive a gift card, what places would you like to get one from? I shop at Kroger a lot, and as a grad student I could never say no to grocery money. For frivolous stuff, though? Barnes & Noble (for my Nook), and Amazon. If you could see anything, what would it be? I really want to go to Disney with my fiance. He's never been and I haven't been without a small child in tow. So I want to see that. The fireworks at night with him! When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? I like to melt a wax tart that smells like escapism (seaside or forest, not foody) and go somewhere else in my head, take a nap. What are your thoughts on comics? Not a comic book fan. Are you musical? Do you play an instrument, and if so, what? If not, what do you wish you could play or do? Nope. Does anyone garden? I don't have the space, unfortunately. Do you decorate for Halloween? I would love to! Is anyone fond of programs like Adopt a Tree/Highway/Library/Manatee/Acre of Rainforest/etc? I have always wanted to adopt a lion. This would seriously warm my heart! What #1 actor, director, author and/or musician are you obsessed with? Not really into any actors or directors, but I adore How I Met Your Mother! My favorite band is Counting Crows and I love Jim Butcher's novels. Are you interested in anything from the Villainness Bad Apples update? No thanks. If you have a pet, would he/she/they like to receive a treat or a toy as a gift? Does your pet have any dietary restrictions or other preferences w.r.t. said treat? I wish I had a pet. What are your top three "I want to try them but I think I'll never get to try them" (or, "I've tried them and I want moar moar moar, but I don't think I'll ever get any") scents/bath oils/sprays? Midnight on the Midway, Faith and Comforting Plush Companion - a 5 mL of any of these would make me so happy! Is there a particular artist and piece that you would like a print of? If so, what is your max size that you could spare on your walls? Magritte's "Homesickness". If you are in to beauty and makeup related stuff, what kind of stuff do you like? What is your skintone and hair color? Are there any beauty products you've wanted to try but just never purchase? I'm very natural - I don't ever do anything to my face or hair. Do you like coffee or tea? Would you be interested in trying some different types? I will amend my earlier statement to this - my mind can probably be changed, but I haven't seen it happen just yet. If you have a tea that you think could turn a tea-hater around, please include it with explicit instructions on how to brew it! Are there any CDs/Albums you've been wanting but haven't bought yet? What format do you prefer? (i.e. mp3, actual cd, record, etc) Not that I know of. Are you going away for any part of this round? Nope! Would you like to receive a mix-CD from your Witch? Yes! If your witch were going somewhere on a vacation during the round, would you want a little souvenir? Sure! Do you enjoy any outdoor activities? Do you have a favorite form of "exercise"? I just like to go for long, meandering walks. Do you work/study at a desk and enjoy interesting or cute office supplies? I. Love. Office. Supplies. Pens, pencils, sticky notes, I need a new pen(cil) cup for my desk! Witchee, are you a fan of musicals? If so, which ones? Not so much, these days. I will always have a soft spot for Oliver! I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific! As long as it's washed, but I'm an unusual size. Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box? I would love one! Lion King is one of my all-time favorite movies - anything Lion King related would be great! (I dunno if a plushie Scar exists, but if he does, I want him!) How do you like your chocolate? For example with nuts, mint, peanut butter, caramel? Mint and caramel are two favorites. Pretty much anything but dark! What are your favorite types of Halloween candy? I do like candy corn. I am a big fan of the bat-shaped peppermint patties. Also Smarties, Rolos, Starbursts, and fun-size Hersheys! Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands. I prefer bar soap. I mentioned my favorite brand up yonder, but if I am being honest - unless there's another Paintbox update - I guess Yules? - I'd rather have deodorant! Does that make me weird!? Beads! Do you use them? Would you want some? What sorts of beads do you like? I don't have any sort of use for beads that I know of. Anyone here like caramels? Sea salted caramels?!?! I love caramel! Would you like a hand dyed or hand painted scarf or wrap or other item? If so, what colors/designs/fabrics do you like? As mentioned above, I would adore a Gryffindor scarf. This was a question before, but does anyone here like stones? Just pretty polished stones for use in whatever purposes? I'm afraid I don't have a use for that. Do you wear t-shirts? Are there particular things you like on them? Would you like one designed by your Witch? And, if you don't mind saying, what size t-shirt do you wear? I am a 2X in dude's t-shirts. I adore t-shirts. I stalk shirt.woot and Threadless regularly! How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Love. Do you like Star Trek? Original TV series, films, spinoff series, etc? Favorite characters? Nope. Witchee, would you like a framed photograph and of what? If you want to go down this route, I can provide you with several photos of me and my fiance that I'd love to own framed! Are you more prone to order out or cook at home? Would you be interested in cookbooks, kitchen utensils, and the like? If so, anything specific? I would adore more crock pot cookbooks. We already own Slow Cooker Revolution. New question: How do you feel about maple syrup? Yes please. How do people feel about little pocket shrines, maybe something inspirational/motivational to keep in their purses/backpacks/whatever? (Like these: http://www.art-shrin...cketshrines.htm) That could be sweet! Do you like Star Wars? Original Trilogy? Prequels? Spin-offs? Favorite characters? No. Do you like beef jerkey, I know some may be vegatarian, but where I live beef is a staple and beef jerkey abounds. If so do you it really thin, hard and crunchy or thicker and softer. (OK that borders on obscene)- I like thicker, middle-softness jerkey. Not too spicy. Also do you like or racier ecards from time to time and do you need to be warned if something may be not safe to open at work. Sure. Doctor Who? Yay or nay? (please don't make me cry by saying nay) Nay. How would you feel about gummies? Like, gummy bears? Gummy werewolves? Gummy vampires? I love Trader Joe's gummy bears. Love them. Would love you forever. How would you feel about a totally original Gela-skin for your laptop/iPod/phone? Stickers? Decals? I have a Dell Studio 1537. Go for it! Since this is a Halloween round, what's your Creepy threshold? Are you a cartoon bats and smily pumpkins person or a skulls-and-bones the-dead-are-rising kind of person? Are your fairytales dark or Disney? Disney with a dash of dark. Are your ears pierced, Witchee? Do you have any other piercings? Would you like to receive any items of jewelry for these piercings? Yes! My ears are. They are very sensitive, though. I love earrings! Especially gaudy ones. interested in anything from Lush? I don't like Lush. Do you blog? Would you like a header for your blog, a layout, etc? I love custom LJ layouts Would you be interested in a handmade bookmark? Absolutely! do you like chex puppy chow or muddie buddies (ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate chips, PB, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, chex cereal)? would you want to get some from your witch / nacho witch? Oh yes. How would you feel about receiving a Groupon deal for something in your local area? If there is anything you WOULDN'T like, mention that also. My area doesn't have a Groupon. How do you feel about notebooks/journals/stationery? Anything you need or particularly like? Love. I am a Post-It whore. Fabulous witches and witchees, perhaps you all could note of you've received MeiLin's goodies? Or if you want? I have not! How do you feel about stuffed animals/plushies/general soft, cuddly things? If you like them, what kind of animals would you be interested in? I really want one of those big smooshy round stuffed animals. I forget what they're called! How would you feel about kitchen towels and other similar household objects, if they are pretty or a souvenir? Definitely! Witchee, would you be interested in having a special tea cup/coffee mug/glass to drink out of? Sure! I am left handed.

    The Elephantine Colossus

    In the bottle and wet on my skin, it is a thing of beauty. But when it dries, I just am not a fan. Which is awful because my foodie-loving self is distraught at that! It just was not meant to be. I think it's the tobacco.

    How do you apply your BPAL oils?

How do you apply your bottles without the aid of a wand cap? I feel like I'm missing something obvious!

    Powdery, clean melon and fruity goodness. I can't stop huffing my wrist - unfortunately I put it on an hour ago and it seems to be already fading. Pity, because it would be an AMAZING summer scent.

    The Coiled Serpent

    A potent yogic oil that stimulates the kundalini, provokes spiritual awakening, and releases the energy seated in your root chakra. Incense-y patchouli. Just a little too sharp for my nose, which is odd considering I love patchouli, typically. Alas. It's just a little too medicinal to be a good fit!

    Whoso List To Hunt

    I really want to love this smell, but unfortunately the kryptonite power of rose strikes again! Alas, it just didn't work with my skin chemistry.

    On my skin, it smells like a very potent Jolly Rancher, probably melon-flavored? Rather than just calming down, it faded away into obscurity, which is a shame. I'll wear the imp out, but it's not for me.
