Bpal: Neil Gaiman Selection Updates

neil%2520gaiman

A little bird whispered into my ear about possible updates to the Neil Gaiman Selections on Bpal.

If you’re a collector of Bpal or just a general fan of Gaiman this may be exciting to you!

If you’re unsure what Bpal is have a click over here for some info! If you have no idea who Neil Gaiman is you suffer the dire consequences of possibly being kicked off my blog permanently, ok maybe we’ll forgive you but just this once! k? k.

The Muse worships at the shrine of Gaiman so anything Gaiman related is always great!

The little bird told me about a scent being released entitled Snow, Glass, Apples. Oh Joy! My heart literally stopped when I heard this! Can you imagine such a blend as this? I’m picturing something cool and refreshing with bits of fruit and and a beautiful underlay of ozone! Snow, Glass, Apples was written over 10 years ago and is a twist on the age old story of Snow White. I actually have a copy of it that was purchased from BDP at the time. I believe, don’t quote me, you can find a few copies laying around on Amazon that collector’s are selling if this is something that interests you. In all honesty if you’re not a Gaiman fan you’re sincerely not going to want to shell out the money for a copy so maybe stick to his newer works that are readily available and about.

The good news though is now you can purchase a perfume oil that captures the story! I’m very eager to hear if this is true. According to my little bird it appears that the scent was available at Bpal Will Call. Whether it was allowed to be purchased I’m unsure of as the details are foggy but it does seem that the Gaiman selection on Bpal at the moment, which consists of 7 blends, will be updated soonish!

Weeeeeeee!

I have high hopes for this new blend because really the ones available at the moment aren’t entirely Muse approved.

In other Gaiman related news…The Graveyard Book is completed! Squeal! Around 12:55pm (UK Time) yesterday Neil updated his blog to say a few nights ago he completed the book and is now busy tweaking it (CLICK!). Needless to say I’m excited!

A new perfume oil, A new book, a new film (Coraline is being released in 2009)…..A great start to Monday morning me thinks!

Lorac Visual Effects Mascara

For those of you lemming Fairy Drops Mascara this might be a good alternative. The applicator is somewhat similar in style to the Fairy Drops Mascara and the price isn’t too bad at $19.50 USD!

I haven’t personally tried it but if you’re wishing, wanting, and lemming Fairy Drops Mascara and find yourself not wanting to pay high airmail shipping costs this might be a solution!

I don’t personally agree with a majority of what she said as you know how much of a snob I am when it comes to cosmetics but it’s an interesting video!

Lush Easter Egg Gifts

EasterEggHead

Remember how I was raving about Lush Easter Eggs? And how they never make an appearance stateside? Click to refresh your memory!

This year Lush NA decided to gift Lush Lovers with Easter Egg Gifts! Wahoo! These were available last year from Lush UK and unavailable to US shoppers unless you wanted to shell out for the price of airmail shipping!

This year you can order them directly from Lush’s US site or wander into your local Lush Store and grab a few for your very own! We are only getting three of the five released but it sure is better then none at all!

Each Egg is a 18oz’s of Bath Bomb Bliss! The actually egg has two halves, open it up and tucked inside is a chunk soap and bubble bar but the fun doesn’t stop there! The two egg halves that housed these treats are actually a bath bomb which you can break up and use over the course of several baths or if you’re daring drop the entire thing into your bath tub! Oh my!

Each gift set is $29.95 USD and available in your choice of Green, Yellow, and Pink and of course depending on what color you choose you’ll end up with items smelling of Honey I Washed the Kids, Rock Star Soap, or Avobath! These have a little something for everyone from those who like foody smells, to those who prefer something sweet, or those who like a fresh, herbal blend!
