Are you a Harry Potter fan? If so, which house do you identify with, and why? Would you want knitted things/replicas/accessories in your house colours?
I identify with Gryffindor on a personal level, but the Slytherin house colors are two of my favorite. I'd love anything Harry Potter!! I think a Slytherin scarf would look sweet!!
Are there any Yules from *PAST* years that you're interested in trying? Including past winter inquisitions?
Hmm... Not that I can think of. They're bringing back The Peacock Queen, Rose Red, and Snow White, so I'm pretty much set, lol.
Let's talk about fruit! Do you like dried fruit or h ate it? Like some but not others?
I loooove fruit. Any kind. Every kind.
How do you feel about cherries? Prefer the sweet or tart versions? Dried? Jam? Salsa? Hot sauce? BBQ sauce?
I love cherries!!
Bunnies! What is your general philosophy about patterns for accessories such as socks, scarves, and tights? Do you like solids? Stripes? Polka dots? Weird patterns like harlequin-type stuff? Any of the above?
I'm not a huge fan of stripes on tights, but everything else sounds great!
Bunny, are you interested in anything from Geek Chic Cosmetics?
No thanks. Urban Decay and Clinique is enough for me. I can't afford to be addicted to more than one high end makeup line, lol.
No thanks. My bathroom counter is too small, lol.
If your fox were to knit something for you, would it be a lacy shawl or a pair of socks? Ooo!! That’s a tough one!! Probably a shawl, if I had to choose. But I looooove me a pair of fuzzy socks.
Sooo. Yules. Those just happened. What are you interested in, Bunny?
Ooo!! So many yules, so little time. I have signed up for a decant circle and I live with Alethia (she's my big sister )and she's signed up for a few, so between the two of us, pretty much the only scents that I want to try but didn't order are The Horrors of my Secret Toil, Sugar Cookie, Rose Red, Midnight Mass, and Gelt. I may have added Sugar Cookie to the list because I want to eat a sugar cookie right now, though... hmm. I'm going to see what my paycheck looks like this week and I may or may not be joining a few more decant circles.
Do you prefer dark or milk chocolate?
I honestly don't have a preference. I love chocolate, no matter the cacao content.
What are your opinions on traditional holiday cookie flavorings? I'm thinking anise and cardamom in particular.
I don’t care for anise, but cardamom is delicious!!
Do you like artisan oils and vinegars?
I would like an artisan bottle for my oils and vinegars, but I’ve got a really nice selection of oils and vinegars where I live.
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’m not much of a crafty person, sadly. I tried knitting once and it didn’t work so well, lol. I gave the yarn to my, very unamused, cat (the only thing that trips his trigger is catnip. He’s an addict, lol) and regifted the needles.
Bunny, could you use a 2012 calendar, and, if so, do you like big monthly ones or the page-a-day type?
No thanks, I’ve already bought mine.
Fingerless mittens or full mitts?
Fingerless! My hands are always freezing, but I like to still be able to text and type.
I generally don't wear it as a shirt color because too much pink overwhelms my complexion and brings the red undertones in my skin out. But if it's a hat or scarf or nail polish color or accent color or anything like that, I love it. I really love the color, it just doesn't like me that much, lol.
Bunnies, how do you feel about lemon-flavored items, like lemon marmalade, lemon curd, lemon pound cake, or lemon cookies?
Lemon is, arguably, one of my top five favorite flavors of all time. So yes, you to be sending me all your lemon things naow? Kthnksbye?
Bunny, are you interested in tarts from Two Timing Tart? What scents, if any, are you interested in?
Silk Sheets, Tease, Teatime With Mary Pickford, Parasol, Satin Sheets, Sex Kitten, Kitchen Alchemy all sound wonderful!!
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 prefer to donate my time to charity. I volunteer at some local soup kitchens and the opera company I work with is actually doing a charity fundraiser this Christmas! We're going to have a Winter Gala to raise money for the homeless in our community!
Do you need any holiday recipes? Is there something in particular that you'd like baked or made for you? And for those of you doing the no sugar/low sugar, etc. thing these days, how about savory things?
I would love some recipes!! Cooking and baking are two of my favorite pastimes! I don’t have any dietary or allergy restrictions, so if my foxy has a favorite recipe he/she’d like to share, I’d love it!!
Looking forward to BPTP candles?
Yeah! They’re going to be awesome!!
Does anyone have issues with gently used things like books, etc.?
I would love second hand anything!! I get most of my books from the used bookstore in our library. Second hand items have more life in them. I would love any gently used item!!
Are you a big ol' nerd for any particular subject? Science, math, linguistics, etc? Or particular authors/fandoms?
I’m a music/theatre and math nerd. I’m also a hard core comic book nerd. I love all comic books, but Batman is my favorite. The Joker and Batman is probably the best villain/hero paring ever. The psychological aspect of the whole Batman universe is so fascinating that I have literally spent hours discussing it with whoever will listen, haha. I also love Harry Potter and the Anita Blake series. But I'm, very sadly, getting to the point in the series that everyone warned me about. Where the storyline kinda goes out the window? I just finished reading Burnt Offerings and my sister said that it goes downhill from there. But! Jean-Claude is totally my fictional boyfriend, so I'll keep going for him and his sparkly blue eyes!! And, don't make fun of me, but I collect Barbie Dolls. So anything Barbie related I will go out of my way to purchase, lol.
Bun-bun, what's your favourite colour?
Green is my favorite color!! Any shade of green, but my most favorites are kelly and emerald green. But I love pretty much every color except for orange. Because orange makes me look like a pumpkin, lol.
Your favourite gemstone?
Ohhh... this is a dangerous question, lol. I love jewelry more than it should be allowed for a college student to love anything, lol. And as a wise man once said, "I have champagne tastes, but l have beer pockets." But I love the fake gemstones!! They shine just as bright as the real stuff!! And I love every gemstone known to man. I prefer silver to gold and the only color gemstone I don't like is anything orange. That color just doesn't agree with me.
Your favourite animal (real or imaginary)?
I love poodles, cats, giraffes and penguins!! As for imaginary animals I like any kind of mythological creature; dragons, fairies (although, I don't know if they're really considered animals, lol), unicorns, and the like.
And do you have any intense phobias?
Sharks. I am terrified of sharks and always have been. Like, so bad that sometimes when I'm in bed, I'm afraid to hang my feet over the edge of the mattress because I'm afraid a shark will come up and bite my leg off. Yes, I realize that I am in my bed and sharks don't live in the carpet, but it doesn't calm my irrational fear of sharp, pointy teeth. Lol.
Groupon for Moxie Nouveau! Dear Bunneh, is this something that would interest you?
Sure! Why not!
Are you Nano-ing this month, bunny? If so, how would you feel about merch/donations to the cause?
I'm not nano-ing.
I have a facebook account. I actually think I'll go link that into my signature now!
Do you like/need boxes for perfume/knicknacks?
Yes! I would love them!!
Coffee or tea? With caffeine or without? Flavors (if so, what?) or no? Whole bean/ground/loose leaf/bags?
Coffee and tea with caffeine please. I love flavored tea, but I prefer unflavored coffee. Loose leaf or bags of tea, and ground coffee.
Do you have a strong preference for any sort of bath and body product brands (i.e. etailer/etsy type cos, department store/specialty brands like Lush) or are you cool with anything that doesn't smell like Bunnybane?
I don't have much of a preference. I love to try new things!
A question: reveal, yes or no?
Yes! I would love to know who my foxy is!!
Any favorite cuddly characters?
Pretty much there is no such thing as a non-adorable cuddly character. So I love them all!! ... except sharks... please no sharks? Lol.
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?
Foodwise: probably Starbucks, Genghis Grill, Olive Garden, Subway, Wendy's, or Micky D's. Music wise: iTunes. Clothing wise: probably The Gap, Hot Topic, American Eagle, Target, or Rue 21. Everything Else: Sephora, Ulta, Hastings, Walmart... and that's pretty much it!
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?
No dietary or allergic restrictions for me! And I don't really have a favorite holiday candy. I like all candy!
Does anything from Fusion Sweets interest you?
Holy crap. Pretty much everything looks amazing. Its so hard not to just copy and paste every flavor of everything!! Lol. I'd love to try Rose Orange Blossom Vanilla Salted Butter Caramel, Dark Chocolate Rocky Road With Handmade Marshmallows, Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts, Guava Lemongrass Berlingots, Black Sesame White Chocolate, Lychee Rose Almond Infused Marshmallows, Lychee Vanilla and Coconut Berlingots, Appleless Caramel Apple Butter Caramels, Zesty Lemon Meringue Marshmallows, French Sea Salt Butter Caramels, Forgive Me I Have Sinned Dulce de Leche Coconut Macaroons, Organic Vanilla Sugar, Bacon Sea Salt Caramels, Caramel Pecan Tarts, and the Mango Raspberry Berlingots!! Hmmm... it was probably not a good idea to have made this list while I was hungry, lol.
Interested in anything from the Elements and Artifacts Yule update?
Oh my! I literally didn't see one item I did not absolutely adore!! All of her jewelry is soooo pretty!!
Best holiday present I ever got:
Hmm... that's a tough one... I can't pick!! Every present I've ever gotten as been the best!!
BPAL anniversary resurrection wishes:
Black Lace and Champagne, Chocolate and Cheap Sex. Or Yvaine.
If you like Christmas music (or any other holiday music, for that matter), what kind of style do you like? Traditional? Modern and poppy? Indie?
I love any and all kinds of holiday music. I’m that annoying holiday shopper that sings along with whatever the store is playing on the overhead speaker, haha.
Things flavored like rose/mastic:
I’ve never heard of mastic and I’ve never really tried anything rose flavored, but bring ‘em on!! I’m totally up for trying new things!
I live in the city of the chicken wing. if i were to send you something savory, what's your heat tolerance (or sweet and heat for that matter).
I can’t really handle much heat, lol. I do like spicy flavor, but I generally get the mildest sauce I can find. I like sweet, savory, and sour too!!
Is there any particular holiday DVD that you don't have that you would like to own?
Not really, no.
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.
Any of those bath bombs, emotibombs, or bubblebars look pretty cool!! That website is awesome! I'd love to get pretty much anything from there!
Would you like a Paintbox from Paintbox Soapworks? If so, which scents?
I've never tried Paintbox before, but they look divine! The Man in the Moon, Lavender Truffle, The Queen is Dead, Sweet Cheeks, Silken Peony, White Cotton Sheets all sound wonderful!! And of the limited editions The Yuletide Mariner, Poinsetta, White Snow Bright Snow, Indian Summer, and The Victorious Sun sound great!!
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?
I don't have any kids, but I do have three kitty muffins and two poodle muffins. You don't have to worry about any kind of safety or gifts for them, though. They're so spoiled, lol.
How do you feel about honey/beeswax? Would you like any?
Sure! Why not!
Are you a Trader Joe's fan, who either doesn't have a store nearby or just loves their stuff and has a wishlist?
I've never been to a Trader Joes, but if my fox sees anything he/she thinks I might like, or if they have a favorite they want to share, I'm totally game!!
If I were to place ONE LAST Weenie order, (uh, which I will) what would you want me to include for you?
Some imps of your choosing!! Anything with apple, maybe? Or whatever you liked and want me to try?
Will you be away for any part of the round?
Anyone else with an Etsy store and a member of Tradeaholics (or you could join) and interested in bartering for gifts for their bunny? Everything in my shop is up for trade.
I don't have an Etsy store and I've never heard of Tradeaholics, but if anyone is looking for anything for their bunny I'd love to help out!! I'm a pretty awesome baker and whatever isn't for my bunny is totally up for grabs.
What type of books do you like? Dying to read anything?
My favorite genres are mystery/thriller, science fiction/fantasy, and the occasional literature. But pretty much I'll read anything. I freaking LOVE books.
How do you feel about superheros? Are you a Marvel or DC fan? Do you have a favorite hero?
I personally am a DC girl. I'm a total comic book nerd. Batman is, hands down, my favorite!!! The Bats and I go waaay back.
Have you tried anything from Cocoa Pink and if so, what products and scents do you like or would like to try?
I've never tried anything from them, but their website looks promising! The Black scents ( the basic black and the chocolate & raspberry ones in particular), Couer de Vahine, Dracula, Fairytale, Lime sugar, London Lemon Curd, She’s a Peach, Strawberries & Champagne, and Violet Kisses all sound amazing! I think any of those scents I'd rather have in a lotion/scrub/bodywash than a perfume oil. Or maybe thats my subconscious trying to tell me I can only afford to be hooked on one brand of perfume oil, haha.
If you found a $50 bill on the ground and were to place a Lab order, what would be in it? (And shipping is free through the magical BPAL unicorn!)
Ohhh thats a tough one... I'd buy a bottle of... uhh... Helena. No! Whip. Wait... Marie? I'd pick one of those to have in a 5ml and then take the remaining money and buy a ton of imps.
Tim Tams. Yay or nay?
Those. Look. Delicious!!
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 love love homemade goodies! But the ones from the store are tasty too!
Would any Bunny like to receive Holiday serving bowls, trays, platters etc...? Winter/Christmas or Thanksgiving/Fall themed?
Sure! That sounds great! Probably more winter/Christmasy themed, rather than fall or Thanksgiving, though.
My lovely fluffy Snow Bunny, would you like a bodyscrub 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?
Oooo!! That would be wonderful!! Lavender, peppermint, rose or anything you see fit would smell divine. And definitely a more moisty sugar scrub.
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 love candles!! I like scented candles in all colors and everything else is up to the good judgment of my awesome bunny!
Also what do you think of little soaps? I know most people don't use soaps nowadays but I love the chocolate/vanilla/cocoa/butter/sugar combo scents that I see at beauty stores.
I think that sounds great! Soap is always good!
Socks! Slippers! Do you love them or not really wear them? If you love them, do you also love Sock Dreams?
I wear both socks and slippers. And sock dreams is an adorable website!!
Would you wear something like this if your Fox were to knit you one? If so, what color?
Yeah! In a dark green, a bright emerald, or black!
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’m addicted to coffee. Ground preferred, but whole bean is okay, not flavored, and whole caff. We have a drip coffee maker and a keurig. And I also adore tea! The only thing I don’t really care for in my tea is any kind of anise flavor, but other than that I love samplers with a bunch of different flavors!!
Who else here loves or would like to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics? If so, what would you like?
I love makeup!! My favorite items are any kind of lipsticks, glosses, stains, balms. I love any shade of reds or pinks (and I mean from one end of the light/dark spectrum to the other, lol), but I stay away from corals, oranges/yellows, blues, and purples. Nail polish is also another favorite item, and the only shade I don’t care for is orange. Also any kind of eyeliner in the black/brown/silver/grey color range is fun!
Do you do a Christmas tree? If yes is it themed or specially colored or do you just have all different ornaments and such?
Yes!! Every year!! It doesn't have a specific theme, though. Just a bunch of random ornaments!!
Would you like a special ornament?
And I would love a special ornament!!
Someone has gifted you a $20 gift card from Walgreens to ONLY use on things for yourself. No necessities here. What do you buy?
-A tube of Maybelline’s The Falsies Black Drama Mascara in black and waterproof.
-Nail polish in some fun color!!
-Some kind of chocolate (I’m really not picky, lol). Maybe lint! The milk chocolate and peanut butter one! Or some kind of exotic dark chocolate bar. Like dark chocolate with chili, cherries, and almonds! But I like Hershey’s too!!
-Maybe a mystery paperback? Or some kind of good book.
-Some kind of fun lipbalm or maybe I’d try out a lipstain in red?
-And Burts Bee’s Peppermint Foot Lotion and/or some fuzzy socks!!
Would you use cooking spices and if you would, what would you need? (it's penzey's if you want to google it).
Yes! I love to cook and bake!! Some fresh ground cinnamon, cake spice, Greek seasoning, Hint of Mint Hot Chocolate mix, regular hot chocolate mix, orange peel, Rocky Mountain seasoning, vanilla beans, or whatever you think sounds good!!
Do you like knitted goods? If so, what would you like, what colors, and do you have any sensitivities or preference when it comes to type of yarn (ex: wool: yay or nay? do you prefer machine washable materials? do you not care?)?
I would love anything knitted!! From hats to scarves to pot holders! I love every color except orange. When I wear orange, it makes my face look like a pumpkin, lol. Wool does make me a little itchy but I don’t mind if it’s not machine washable.
Hey swap partner...could you use a new mug?
Hell yeah!! I collect them!! Funny mugs, cool mugs, mugs with bands on them, mugs with superheroes on them, mugs mugs mugs!!
Is there any sort of regional food/drink/treat you miss or have always wanted to try?
I miss the beignets from Café du Monde in New Orleans!! Ohhh my whole family was born there and we haven’t been back in soooo long!! A small cup of their coffee and chicory with one sugar and cream, and a bag of deliciously hot beignets literally smothered in powdered sugar. Mmmmm. But I love to try new things!! Especially foods or things that are specific to where my fox lives!! (Also, I adore the snowbunny and fox thing!!)
