Fairy Wings

Fairy Wings from WyldeIvy

I smell like candy again today. A different kind of candy this one has some fruit to it, maybe pomegranate.

Would wear this again, but not everyday.

Crush from WyldeIvy

I smell like candy. Sweet, sugary candy. Sweet vanilla sugar. Like cotton candy smell from the fair.

Good scent, don't know if I could wear it every day, but it's fun.

Wylde Vanilla

So as part of my original posts I had groups of scents that I had just taken brief notes on that I didn't really review in depth.

I have gone back and tried a few of these and I'm going to do a better review of them.

The first is Wylde Vanilla...

Wylde Vanilla is a warm vanilla scent with a sweet patchouli finish.

I think I'm going to be wearing this scent all fall.

My WyldeIvy Birthday Sale Haul

Ok, so if you read my post from yesterday you know I was super excited about the birthday sale at WyldeIvy.

So I got a mini perfume set with these scents
SunTea, Crush, Island Beauty, Sweet Haze, and She Sells Seashells
Four roll on perfumes in
Modern Zen, Sandcastles, Wylde Vanilla, and SunTea
Two Silken Body sprays in
Sandcastles and Modern Zen

With my order I qualified for a mini perfume set of the birthday scents, one free roll on, and a free silken body spray.

I had to stop myself from getting the hemp and green tea body lotion. I'm thinking that in the Wylde Vanilla would be great!!

I know that Ashlee is planning a fall line, so I will control myself until then.

Pink Vanilla from LemonLollipop

So I think it's time I reviewed one of my favorite scents. Pink Vanilla from Lemonlollipop.

Pink Vanilla is a gourmand's dream scent. The scent is sweet, cakey, vanilla, goodness. It smells like a bakery. Someone told me I smelled like cupcakes when I wore it.

I actually know I'm not doing this scent justice.

You can find all things PinkVanilla, including candles and lip balm at or at

Did you know that Etsy has lots of items for diaper bag they do!!

Everything from wet bags to reusable snack pouches, and crayon wallets for the toddler and preschoolers.

Etsy Finds - Jewelry Guide

Hey there!

Just got in my inbox today's Etsy finds.

For those of you that aren't familiar with Etsy, they send out daily finds, picked by Etsy staff finders and the find topics can vary greatly, but you'll never know what you'll see.

So today's finds are a jewelry guide. I haven't even made it through the email yet, but I thought it would be a great mention, since I LOVE jewelry.

Here's the link

Great Giveaway

Giveaway at Brooklyn Thread

A great Etsy shop that I visit frequently is 

Joanna of Brooklyn Thread posted this on her blog today. Go visit her for a chance to win...although I hope I win the fab bracelet.

Today is a special day for me for two reasons. Reason #1 - it's the last day of my 20's! Yup - I turn 30 tomorrow. I can't believe it. The last decade has flown by. I have mixed feelings. Getting older is sad, but at the same time, the last couple of years have brought me such good things, that I am excited to see what's next. Reason #2 - I just made my 1000th Etsy sale! So in celebration, I am giving away my favorite must-have summer accessory - a BrooklynThread Turquoise & Wood Bead Bracelet. I've worn this bracelet every day since the start of summer and would love for one of my readers to have one too!

Handstamped Jewelry

So as a mom, I love handstamped jewelry, and Etsy has no shortage of handstampers.

A few of my favorites are

Just search Etsy for handstamped jewelry and you will get a large selection.

Be sure to read the shop polices, announcements, feedback, etc., for production times and details. And don't be afraid to convo (etsy email) the seller to get exactly what you want.

I have personally purchased from 3sweetpeas and metalpressions, with good results.

Now to keep avoiding the 100 degree heat.

Hi there.

A real post today.

I just discovered OpulentAlchemy on Etsy.

In my quest to find the beach scent I have in my head I was searching Etsy for beach fragrances and found OpulentAlchemy.

All the beach and summer scents I have tried have been too tropical, not like a day at the beach here on the east coast. Those of you from the east coast might know what I mean. Salt water, sand, beach grass, sun, suntan lotion...that coconut smell, but not all the tropical flowers.

I tried Bobbi Brown Beach a long time ago, and if I remember correctly, she got it right.

But couldn't afford it, and I've been hoping to find it recreated someplace, OpulentAlchemy has it.

Nichole of OpulentAlchemy does replica scents. You know have you ever wished a soap or shampoo scent was a perfume, from say Lush or Aveda. Or that super expensive designer fragrance that you just love but can't spend the cash on.

Check out OpulentAlchemy, she might just have it.
