FOTD: The Dogetor

FOTD: The Dogetor

Happy December everyone! The plan was to post a general update about where I’ve been these past 2 months, but I’ll probably do that tomorrow. I wanted to get some photos in, but it’s 8pm (still looks like dim afternoon, daylight savings) and I’d much rather do phototaking when I have the house to myself!...

Sorry for putting this review up after Halloween. It’s been pretty out of control over here.

Madd Cat Monthly Box 1 – Review & Swatches – Bluegrass, Infinite Ammo, Ever After, Raven Feathers, Blue Lagoon

The idea of monthly subscription boxes has always excited me to a degree, but I’m always let down because I can never seem to find one that offers products that I can actually use and that won’t misalign with my cosmetic ethics. The only vegan and eco-friendly subscription boxes I have found have been terribly...

You ever have perfume stashed away, that you mean to always wear and share but then…you know…it gets lost in the hoarde with all the other pretties and time goes on and your memory isn’t as good as it was and you only realise you’ve purchased them when you decide to do a spring clean?...

September Stinks – Indie perfume review of Lou Lous Soaps Scrubs and Scents

Lou Lou’s Soaps Scrubs and Scents is a place I’ve shopped with on a recommendation from Evonne (of Darling Clandestine notoriety), and I have always kept meaning to chat about Lou Lou’s more often on this blog, but I always keep losing my dram vials I am a beacon of organisation and tidiness! Well no...

This is my first foray into ZOMG smells. They’ve been a company that’s been on my ‘to-try’ list for a while, but I always get caught up with new indie perfumeries that I forget all the other I have listed. I decided to get in with this new limited collection, Jerk-Ass Botany, and try a...

September Stinks – 30 Days of indie perfume discussion

With so many indie perfumes laying around, I’ve decided to actually try and finally get some reviews of my perfumes out of the way for this month. Last month was a terribly inactive month on my blog (getting used to the back to uni routine coupled with a bunch of assignments thrown at me all...
