Since I got complained at for my teaser post the other day (you know who you are missy) I reckon I should really update it huh? I can't find the camera so instead of posting FO pics (oh ho and yes I have a few now) I shall discuss the other things I have been doing. Ok buying alright? I LOVE getting stuff in the mail besides bills that is and have a couple of things to share with you all.

OMG. I ordered a couple of perfume roll ons from these lovelies a while ago and got them yesterday. Cutest packaging EVER. They came in a little Chinese take out box full of blue noodles and a BLUE FORTUNE COOKIE!!! Along with a sample of cherry scented lotion. WOWIE!! I got Pumpkin Cremasse (drools like a fool) and Vanilla Fig Cedar (which may become a signature scent for me). Really lovely EVERYTHING in this little box of fun.

Next up: Arcana Soaps and Oils

They aren't selling retail themselves but I did manage to snag some from these wonderful folks:

Fantastic customer service from here I must say. Very quick and responsive. I ordered these:

Only three of them though not ALL of them ok? I'm crazy not stupid!

Last Hours of Empires Perfume Oil "...All that gamut of intensified colors, correspondent to Autumn and the setting of the sun, to over-ripe fruit and the last hours of empires."** A rich blend of precious oils, evocative of regret and resplendence, featuring highest quality Omani frankincense, true Indian sandalwood, delicate top notes of bergamot and tangerine, and the smallest wisp of black patchouli.**Theophile Gautier on Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal

Mutiny Perfume Oil: Tyrants be damned! The scent of discontent, broken ranks and open rebellion on the sea. Indonesian patchouli combines with black pepper, dark wood and a smoky haze of gunpowder

Sleepy Hollow Perfume Oil: An atmospheric ode to romantically spooky Autumn evenings, with fresh pumpkin, spiced apple brew and bonfire smoke. Perfect for the telling of deliciously scary tales.

Notice the notes? I am very much in love with resins, woods and apparently pumpkin and spices. How can a girl resist? I am in smellie good heaven. The turn around time (which is V importante if you have ever dealt with like say BPAL //rolleyes) was great for both of these places. The quality is excellent and I cannot recommend them enough.

I have also been cruising for some nice steals and deals. I found a really cool Canadian Artist whose stuff is quite group of 7 like (more modern) to me and purchased one of her prints:

Her name is Mandy Budan and you can find her here:

I think I may need some more of her work. Its simply lovely. Seriously, I love it.SUPPORT SMALL ARTISTS!! Having said that, ACADs show and sale is next weekend. Must make time for that!

Canada Post has been playing silly buggers with me and one other order from my makeup place ( and I had to email them and they actually needed to send out a replacement parcel as my first one seems to have (waves hands around MYSTERIOUSLY)
disappeared I swear our mailman is never the same twice and stuff goes missing all the time. le sigh.

TOMORROW!! IS PS3 DAY!!! Chris and Jake are all a-quiver. ITS LIKE GIFTMAS ALREADY! Whatever floats yer boat I reckon.

There will be knitting soon.. or maybe even some crochet. Oh yeah.. I said the c word.
