White Honey

White Honey is my last sample from WyldeIvy.

The scent is really nice. I wasn't expecting to like it but I do.

I smell clover honey, vanilla musk, and maybe lily of the valley.

It actually could be old fashioned, but it's very unique.

AppleFest is one of the last two samples I have from WyldeIvy.

So with the name you would expect apples, which is the first thing you smell when you open the sample vial.

After that, I smell berries and pie crust.

I have a comment

OMG, I was checking here today and I saw that I received a comment on my last post about t-shirts.

So I'd like to thank Rob, from Lady Umbrella, for his comment.

On that note, I'd also like to say that I received my t-shirt from Lady Umbrella today, and it's great!!

Really cute and fits well! Great graphic. The Umbrella Tree is next on my list.

Indie T-shirt Companies

For those of you who know me, you know I'm pretty much a jeans and t-shirt girl. When I picked out my wedding dress the key was it had to feel like I was wearing a t-shirt.

So I'm kind of bored with the plain white t-shirts from the Gap and Old Navy and I'm lucky enough to have a friend who has a roommate with her finger on the pulse of the indie t-shirt industry. Check out the Tee Gazette here Kelly has all the best t-shirt designers on her blog.

My recent favorite is Lady Umbrella from Ireland, check them out here I picked up the Lady Umbrella and The Wise Old Owl. My next purchase will be The Umbrella Tree.

Crystal Amber

Crystal Amber from WyldeIvy is a creamy powdery scent. I got a little citrus in the beginning, too.

From the description on the website of this scent I should really like it, but I don't. I'm finding it just ok. Maybe it's just my mood today.

Black Vanilla

Black Vanilla from WyldeIvy is a pretty pure vanilla, with a little smoke to it.

No sugar or sweetness, just dry. Light, not cloying.

Thinking I like this one, since it is a different vanilla. Kind of a grown up vanilla. Will try it again.

Indigo Moon

Indigo Moon from WyldeIvy starts off with a berry, dry fruit scent, I smell a little wood, smoke, musk, maybe a little sugar.

As the day progressed I felt I smelled like a candle.

I can understand why others like this but it wasn't right for me.

What did I get myself into...

So my husband turned 40 earlier this week, and I thought it would be a great idea to have a party for him. So now I have about 40 people coming tomorrow for a cookout.

Yes I was smart enough to ask people to bring a dish, so that has taken some of the pressure off, but my list keeps growing.

Right now I'm feeling so unmotivated, probably because the list is so big.

I went to the grocery store yesterday and I thought I'd gotten everything I needed, boy was I wrong. How many hotdogs, sausages, and burgers do you need for 40+ people?

Oh, I need a nap...

Simple Love

Simple Love from WyldeIvy is another light scent that would be great as a body mist.

Light floral, lily, not the over powering kind. A little sweet, a little orange, but not creamy or citrus.

Like it but not as much as Simple Wish.

White Cashmere

White Cashmere from WyldeIvy is a warm scent. Definitely for fall or winter.

I smelled vanilla, a little sugar, a little wood, and sheer or light musk.

I like it but not as much as Wylde Vanilla.
