    Diva-licious musings (TMI ahead)

    Thanks so much for this review/tutorial!! I actually have a Diva Cup..had it for over a year now and I got frustrated with the insertion process and forgot about it. So this really helped me..I'm gonna give the Diva Cup another shot!
  2. The TAL oil Blinding Glory of Love smells just like Spellbound w/ a shot of mint to it. I love it!!

    Whatever comes to mind

    The problem I have is finding good oranges..our market carries the kind that tend to be on the dry side & have no flavor whatsoever! A few months outta the year they do carry the tangelos & every once in awhile we get a small crate that is so succulent & sweet that we cherish each one as if it were mana from heaven. Apples..they make me hungry too..they sate me for about 20 mins and then you'll find me poking my head into the pantry/fridge once again. hehe I made a quick cake (Jiffy yellow cake) 2nite w/ chunks of apples & cinnamon/sugar on top and it was SO delish..not too sweet or heavy. About Che..I agree (ha) that he was quite handsome,which no doubt was half of his appeal to some. I have a really huge 'coffee table' book about his life w/ tons of pics & I have to disagree w/ your friend on him being 'still cute' after being shot to hell. At least from the pics I have seen..it aint pretty..and it actually made me cry. I dont think I could ever look at 'em again, truthfully. Your friend sounds like she was a wonderful person..and shes the same age as my Mum. Way too young to die, for sure. *hugz*

    Vexed by text

    I cannot for the life of me insert text into a link on the forums..and its making me miserable so this is my testing page for doing that. Please ignore my blatant idiocy while I attempt this seemingly simple task. Thank you & please stand by. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/157067175...8928011?ie=UTF8 I curse you, you irritating long-winded link!! *shakes a fist* Begone with ye! Ok..uhm.. heh Raw Food Made Easy OMG it finally fu#kin' worked!! Why the hell doesnt that work when i post on the forums..?? Huh. (and yes, i realize I didnt have to 'publish' this but maybe someone else will feel comforted knowing they're not alone..?? hehe)

    The Bloody Sword

    Observing the oil itself, it is tinged w/ a reddish-orange tint..very cool! In the bottle: This is so surprising to me..I can smell the sweetness of myrrh yet the bite of pepper @ the same time..the steely note kinda catches at the back of my throat..it actually made my hairs stand up on my neck! My goodness..thats a first. On the skin: the dragon's blood & leather peek out..they are beautifully intertwined w/ one another..the other notes kinda support these two @ the moment. Its such a smooth blend w/ such an enticing, yet commanding presence. Mmm.. Afterhours: This has dried down to a smokey blood laced labdanum/benzoin(?) haze..its ever so slightly powdery but so far from 'stuffy' old lady powdery. heh I really really like this..I'm sure it will blossom into a torrid love affair soon..

    Schwarzer Mond

    In the Bottle: Bright patchouli intertwined w/ geranium & bay rum..mmm!! On the Skin: Now there's the opoponax..sweet resinous & slightly bitter florals Afterhours: Mellowed down to a very sexy black amber/night musk(?) haze..it feels great wearing this blend..I knew I was a fool not to order more than one bottle! Oh, and Brian..here ya go Well done!

    Black Moon

    In the bottle: whoa..hellllo jasmine/pear/lotus! On the Skin: this has mellowed almostly instantly..jasmine..yup.lotus..still there..I'm pickin up a slight cucumberish/musky smell as well..hrmm! Afterhours: This has softened to an airy/dusty dark floral..its really quite lovely but I'm not sure if I need a whole bottle of this. Definitely one of Beth's best blends to date, though!

    Knitty Knits

    Chaos Theory III: Strange Attractors

    MLVI (#1056): (My 4th and final bottle!! Noooo!!) In the bottle: Hrm..this smells just like Montresor again. On the Skin: I can detect a sweet floral w/ the winey notes Afterhours: a powdery floral wine Not really sure what to do with this..i like Montresor but i dont need 3 bottles that smell alike. Off to ze swappies!

    Chaos Theory III: Strange Attractors

    CMXIV (914) In the bottle: Whoa. This is really reminding me of a Maelstrom sniff. Its like a really biting version of Fortunato..yet i can detect the sweetness of Montresor as well.. On the skin: Damn! its like a really sharp peppery cherry brandy..?? Afterhours: this has dried down to a faint lemony-oak sugar booze..how lovely is this?! omg.

    Chaos Theory III: Strange Attractors

    DCCV (705) At first sniff I was mildly offended and pretty sure this wasnt going to be 'my' scent. (I'm a heavy musk/incense/foody junkie)Floral lovers would really like this I'm assuming..its got some slight citrus accents & an ozone/aquatic accords thrown in. It has dried down to a nice relaxing spa-ish smell..it might make a good sleepy scent if I dont swap it away.

    Chaos Theory III: Strange Attractors

    CDXXVII or #427 I changed this review because i just compared it to Sleepy Moon which I swear this smells like only its like Sleepy's little sleazy sister (dont ask)cuz its a lighter version but dries down to a sexy sugary floral which is really quite nice but I dont know if I want another bottle of Sleepy Moon... hehhe

    It's official

    Hello Grace! Such a gorgeous name and always reminds me of U2's song 'Grace' ..which is such a pleasure to hear. My birth name is Ann which means 'grace' but I've always hated it for some reason. heh Anyhoo, congrats on your name change, its truly inspiring! Grace She takes the blame She covers the shame Removes the stain It could be her name Grace It's a name for a girl It's also a thought that changed the world And when she walks on the street You can hear the strings Grace finds goodness in everything Grace, she's got the walk Not on a ramp or on chalk She's got the time to talk She travels outside of karma She travels outside of karma When she goes to work You can hear her strings Grace finds beauty in everything Grace, she carries a world on her hips No champagne flute for her lips No twirls or skips between her fingertips She carries a pearl in perfect condition What once was hurt What once was friction What left a mark No longer stings Because grace makes beauty Out of ugly things
