I ♥ Tuesdays Product Review: Body Language Soaps


For as long as I remember, I have had a fixation with lip gloss. Any kind. I just love it, and I feel as if I need to have it on at all times. I do have it on at all times, in fact I'm applying it with one hand and typing with the other. I have a white carriage in my bathroom about the size of a small shoebox, full of lip glosses. All different sizes, shapes, glossiness's, and flavours( except watermelon...eek).
I have recently decided to make my own beauty products, or to buy handmade form others. Of course I went straight to ETSY to see what I could find. I tried a few different shops, five to be exact before I fell in love completely. Body Language Soaps. So good. SO GOOD. Not only do they have a lovely variety of products to choose from (lotions, soaps, lip balm, and sugar scrubs), but the quality of the products is wonderful! The scents are so vibrant and realistic! The lotion is so quenching! The soap lather is so velvety! THE LIP BALM IS SO SMOOTH! This was my greatest joy of course, the balm. I ordered the lotion sampler and the lip balm sampler. The flavours that I chose are amazing! My two favourite balms are the raspberry lemonade and the chocolate raspberry. I adore the vixen lotion as well, it is a lot like sweet pea, but somehow sexier! I highly recommend this ETSY shop, I will be going back every time I get a little low on balm, it is so buttery smooth, I am hooked!

I really love this carrot facial bar , it leaves my skin feeling fresh and it smells great! $6.50

Vixen sugar scrub, yum! Vegan!!!! $12

I am such a huge fan of this lotion, it is so refreshing! $6.50

Buttery smooth lip balm sampler $15 for 5

This is on my wish list! Temptress Body Gloss $12

Remember when I said that when I am feeling less than dandy, I shop?!? Well, I was recently released form a sad little rain cloud and boy do I have loads of things to review!! Oh, and a new mini obsession....Twilight... I know, it's a little old, and very over exposed, but I was convinced.

While picking up my god-daughter from school I noticed that she had a new back pack. It used to be High School Musical, now it was Twilight. The entire walk home was spent with her trying to convince me to watch it with her. I refused. For two days. On the third day, I gave in. (after making her promise not to spill her guts and tell me everything before it happened!) I don't know if it was the way she was gushing over how cute Edward was (she's 7) or the way she would do a worksheet then ask to watch it, then eat a sandwich, and ask again, but I just couldn't say no anymore. So......we watched it. At first, I was pretty unimpressed. I mean, the characters were gorgeous, which really helped it out, but the special effects were super cheesy and some of the acting seemed...overdone. Nevertheless, I went home, and ordered it from Amazon. What can I say? I'm a total sucker for vampires, especially sexy vampires with a love interest that happens to be Kristen Stewart. The chemistry was perfect, and that made the film for me. I just finished the first book. It took me three days. It could have taken only a couple of hours, but I have two jobs! I ordered the second book in the middle of reading the first. Bad idea! I didn't think that I would zoom through the last 200 pages in an hour. I don't even think that it was shipped yet. Now, I wait.

While browsing ETSY, I found loads and loads of Twilight themed merch! Here are a few things that I looooove Check it out!!

Alice Cullen Crest necklace
Twilight Apple Foaming Sugar Scrub
Bad Guy Wallet

Cullen Family Crest Ring

So I finally sent off some scarves to Nandi of Nitemare Photography! I am very excited to see what she comes up with, her work is dazzling. The photos above are my absolute favourites. These photos were published in Gothic and Lolita Bible vol.4, and the minute I turned the page I was in love! Nandi first contacted me at the very beginning of my model search and I was extremely excited ( and starstruck!) to be able to collab with her.
I was having quite a time deciding which scarf design to send to her. I really wanted to have my Alice in Wonderland collection ready sooner, but I was ill, and I had to put it on the back burner. So, I sent three others. Two were new designs, and one was the revised mint chocolate giant bow scarf.

Can't wait to see what she'll do!!

check her out!!!!!!

Back from outer space

I know... I have been gone for a long time! Thank you to everyone who sent letters and messages of concern, I had no idea how many people cared!
I had a few life changing events occur recently that kept me from my usual rainbow coloured happy world, but now I am determined to get my life back in order however I can.
The great ( or horrible) thing about going through hard times is the shopping. I don't know about you, but when something happens that causes an emotional reaction within my body, I shop. If I am sad, I shop. So, needless to say, I will be posting loads of product reviews in the next couple of days!
