The Spent Dandelion – All Natural Handmade Perfume Oil

IMG_8033.JPGI was recently in touch with Debra Pschigoda on etsy, who is a stay at home mama with a passion for re-purposing “spent” items and for all things that bring us closer to nature and a more natural way of living. Debra sent me 3 of the 9 perfume oils she makes at home to review and share with all you lovely birds out there! ❤

IMG_8037.JPGI’ve been using these oils for a little over a week now and i’ve grown very fond of the Sweet Patchouli and the Bergamont ,Yarrow & Vanilla perfumes. The Hippie Godiva is also very nice, a bit more floral than the others and very lovely! I’ve used the Sweet Patchouli almost every day since i’ve had it and the oil hasn’t moved down in the bottle at all, so this will last me a super long time which is exciting! I literally cover any skin showing with these oils because i’m so in love with them ♡ They come with a little roller ball application which makes is super easy to apply and perfect for in your purse 😛

These perfume oils are $9 and is 1/3 oz  a bottle which is extremely affordable and worth your money!

|T O K Y O M I L K – PERFUME|

perfume_01

I recently discovered this perfume originally through a good friend. These perfumes are honestly both our new favs.

“Dead Sexy” #06 is a sexy, musky, matured scent that leaves hints of ebony and exotic wood with a deep finish of vanilla. The scent itself doesn’t stick too well on the skin so I usually apply this to my clothing and a squirt above my head to let it fall on my hair. Honestly this perfume is DEAD FUCKING SEXY.

“Honey & The Moon” #10 is a lovely, musky vanilla scent with sweet honey, sugared violet, jasmine and sandalwood which is my absolute favorite. The sweet, woody scents are obviously perfect for the autumn and winter. Honey & The Moon is quite a bit sweeter than the Dead Sexy scent, it leaves a sweet honey, sandalwood scent behind which is absolutely memorizing.

These bottles cost $29 each and worth every penny! If you’re interested in getting these for yourself, or finding a scent for YOU! Check out their website, they have so many different scents! ❤ http://www.tokyo-milk.com/t/parfum

My First Lip Monthly Subscription

06

The month of October I received my very first LipMonthly subscription. I had only watched a video or two before jumping on the website to order my very own. Not knowing really what to expect (besides perhaps a bunch of lip products?!) I was happy to see they had sent me 5 different products!

My first product revealed was this noyah cherry lip balm, which glides nicely onto your lips as if it were a stick of butter. The familiar cherry scent isn’t too strong, but quite subtle and lovely. This product is full size, worth $3.99.

http://noyah.com/cherry-lip-balm.html

 

01

 Next I pull out this lip sugar by Starlooks. Basically just a brown sugar mixed with a bit of oil, very simple to make at home. I definitely would never purchase something like this, but it will be interesting to try out. This is a full size product and you can buy any 5 for $10.

http://starlooks.com/products/all-natural-lip-sugar

02

 Next I have this lip shimmer by Devine in the shade “pinot noir” <– I’m such a wino, i literally love this thing simply because of the colour name hehe. This lip shimmer is very smooth and lush ❤  This product is full size, costing $4.95.

http://devineshimmers.com/products/pinot-noir

04

I’m not really in need of pencil liners, I personally never really use them and Ipsy likes to include them quite often, I feel. This eyeliner by L.A. Girl is in the shade Navy <– No idea when I will use this. Maybe i’ll find someone who could get some use out of it. This product costs $3.00 and is cruelty free, which is rad! ❤

http://www.lagirlusa.com/eyeliner-pencil-223.html

03

So my last and most favorite item I received in this LipMonthly bag is this lovely nude lipstick by JCats. I personally never have worn a nude lip, and I honestly slightly obsessed with this colour. This nude lip works so well with my fair skin. I’M SHOCKED, I AM TURNING INTO A LOVER OF THE NUDE LIP. Do you like nude lips?

This is a full size product at the cost of $2.99, they have sooo many shades and this applies very nicely!

October Ipsy Glam Bag

01

Another month, another ipsy beauty bag ❤ This month’s beauty bag theme was “Beauty Candy”. As you can tell the bag this month looks a bit like a candy bar, or jolly ranchers! ❤ As these next 6-8 months here in Canada are going to be chilling and our skin will be getting dry & rough, Ipsy has included a few things to keep us moisturized & soft!

First here, I have this hand cream by Figs & Rouge. This hand cream goes for £3.95 which is around $6 Canadian. I love this handcream it is soo soo yummy! With hints of mango, mandarin and shea butter, this hand cream smells absolutely delectable!

http://www.feelunique.com/p/Figs-and-Rouge-Mango-Mandarin-Shea-Butter-Hand-Cream-20ml 

05

Next Ipsy has included this facial exfoliant by Epice which I have yet to try because I am currently obsessed with my St.Ive’s Green Tea Scrub. This exfoliant is definitely next on the list though. This 1 oz bottle only costs $4.99 and on the site you can actually get a sample size half the size for only $1.

Benefits:

  • Micro-fine polyspheres gently exfoliate removing excess dead cells and environmental debris.
  • Exfoliation helps open pores, which increases excretion of toxins.
  • Packed with emollients, humectants and barrier protectors to hydrate dry, irritated skin.
  • Smoothes skin as it cleans.

06

Next is something I had no idea even existed. A BB cream, FOR YOUR HAIR! How exciting is this?! This is the smaller size I received worth $4.00, the full product is 4.2 oz for $30.  “Including Acacia Collagen, Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, Silk Amino Acids, Jojoba Oil and Monoi Oil, A phenomenon in haircare…Finally, an all in one styling cream that is amazingly light, incredibly versatile and harnesses the moisturizing and protective power of Acacia Collagen™ for ultimate repair.” I’m excited to give this stuff a go! & I’ll make sure to write a full review on this new intriguing hair product!

07

 Next I have this super lovely Mineralized Baked Eyeshadow by Jesse’s girl in the shade “Rosemary Frost” which I think is such a lovely name for it. This shadow is rather pigmented with shine and leaves a really nice glowy feel. I would even consider using this as a highlighter! This is a full product at the price of $3.99.

https://www.jessesgirlcosmetics.com/product/mineralized-baked-powder-eye-shadows/rosemary-frost-299

04

Last in this months bag, I received this Be Matte Lipstick by City Color in the shade “Cappuccino”. I honestly don’t really see the Cappuccino colour for this matte lipstick, I find it’s more of a peachy, sandy colour on the lips. Either way it is a super lovely shade for this season! This is a full sized products at the price of $5.00.
