Hello all! Today I’m sharing one of my indie discoveries – Hagroot! I’ve never actually tried perfume oils before, but if they’re all like this I may have to rethink my collection. Everything I tried smells amazing. If you are into witchy, herb-y or foodie scents then these just might be for you. I found… Read More Perfume Diary: Witchy Brews
Hello everybody! So, real talk, It’s been a heck of a year. The big news is that I moved from California to Oregon, which took a lot of time and energy. The place that we moved to needed so much work done on it to get it ship-shape, which is where most of my spare… Read More I’m still here!

Cirque Colors has become one of those brands. The polish will set you back $14 a… Read More I’ve got a new favorite … Cirque Colors

Unfortunately drugstores lack testers so, unless I want to be the jerk who opens things in the store, I have to just hope that the product I’m getting is good. Sadly the new… Read More Epic Fail: Revlon HD Matte Metallic Lipstick
How often do you all blind buy perfume? 12 out of the 16 perfumes I own were blind buys. It’s a bit risky, but I don’t have much time these days to go check out scents in person, so I order, and hope the smell actually matches the description. So far, I’ve liked every single… Read More Perfume Diary: Blind Buys
