Bath and Body Works Temptations Collection 2009

Anyone notice that Bath and Body Works is slowly updating it’s catalog with the Temptations Collection? It’s set to officially release in stores on the 23rd I believe but it’s been around the site for a while now.

Today I was hopping around on the site and came across some n00bs.

I wonder what else they might release?

WANT! Bath and Body Works Shapeable Soap ($6.50)
Bath and Body Works Temptations 3

Can’t help myself I want these! So far they only have two scents wonder if they’ll do the others? They are dirt cheap at $6.50 and so fun. Makes me feel like a kid again in my shower creating a sudsy soap beard with these. I have to haul some for shiz!

LEAVE! Bath and Body Works Temptations Shimmer Splash ($9)
Bath and Body Works Temptations 2

You know I adore shimmer right? Just not in my body sprays thanks so much! I got these a few years ago and kinda hated all of them. I imagine I might be tempted to haul again because I like the smell of Twisted Peppermint but the damn shimmer kills me. Hopeful they will do a shimmerless version. Again, only two scents available but let’s see what they pop up with!

And finally the Bath and Body Works Temptation Body Lotion ($12) to match up with the body washes! Coolness!

Remember to check out your local Bath and Body Works sometime next week as I’m sure they’ll have some mega display for the Temptation Collection.

By the way….since they are sorting bringing back Temptations I was kinda hopeful it would lead along into Spring and Summer which had me thinking what scents I’d like to see if they did that.

What are some of your ideas for new scents?

I’d love to see a lime one and maybe a cherry one!

Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods Review

Anyone see the Ryan Seacrest interview with RPattz? What’s up with that? Here, take a look.

Haha his public relations rep was going berserk there for a sec. I honestly thought that the entire romance thing they had going on was a complete PR stunt but maybe not? Is that why his rep is all crazy OMG do not talk about the romancez right now! I can only assume that maybe all the talk is true and they really don’t want to talk about it because it’s bad publicity for fan-pires who love RPattz. You know, they want him to be single, lost and lonely, looking for his one true love…..it really appeals to the tweens and the too old adults like the Muse who dig him. I honestly want to be with him so I can teach him proper hygiene techniques because he looks all kinds of greasy on most days of his life but it’s ok, I still lurves him with all my little itty bitty heart.

No but seriously I thought it was all rather interesting how that played out!

Hmmm!

Speaking of Twilight, today I’m wearing Twilight Woods and I’m SO saying that Bath and Body Works used a coy marketing technique with the name of this fragrance. They wanna draw all the fan-pires into purchasing it. You see Twilight Woods and you automatically think Twilight, Vampires, Go Team Jacob….oops did I say go Team Jacob? What? Taylor looks hot and he looks like he washes too, that’s very appealing.

But seriously it’s a marketing tool I tell you!

Fresh Strawberry Flowers Perfume Review

Contrary to the Muse’s utmost belief that Strawberry Fields was a legendary journey through Lennon’s head when he was dropping a tab, in actuality it’s a real place that he was talking about. Dontcha just want to believe that half his songs are all about a psychedelic acid trip? John Lennon is like the poster boy for good acid trips a la the un-paranoid journey.

But seriously…Strawberry Fields was the name of a Children’s Home next to John’s childhood home in Woolton. He actually played around the area and in a garden behind the actual home which was indeed named Strawberry Fields.

Dontcha love it? You get a review and FUN facts bout John Lennon. How cool am I?

I won’t bug you further with the details of Strawberry Fields (I know all sorts of fun trivia about the Beatles) but speaking on the topic of strawberries and fields and such is my lead in for Fresh Strawberry Flowers Perfume. Loving all over it lately after purchasing it during Sephora Friends and Family.

The Muse’s Gift Guide: Unique Gifts From Etailers Part 1

Muses Gift

Hello dears.

It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it?  But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.

I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers.  What are Etailers?  Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them.  It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch.   These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics.  I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.

I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made.    I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering.   Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.

In other news…

I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December.  Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family.  If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

Jump ahead for the Muse’s Gift Guide to Unique Gifts From Etailers around the Internet!
