Bath & Body
Bath and Body Works has a little sneak peek up of it’s Holiday Collection and I’m actually quite excited about the offerings myself!
Many of the Lambie items offered last year are back this year and I’ll definately be adding a majority of these to my both my own wish list and gift list for friends and family! I was happy to see the revised the Sweetest, Softest Blanket from last year which they have placed a little Lambie emblem on it! So cute! I purchased the Sweetest, Softest Blanket last year and was very happy with it, I’ll definately be indulging in the latest one! This year they also wrapped the blanket up in a beautiful gift giving box! The blanket is $35 USD and possibly the best money you’ll ever spend on such a luxuriously warm blanket, it’s perfect for snuggling on the couch to watch DVD’s or for extra warmth during chilly winter nights! The blanket is available in white or black. Last year I recall wanting to wait to purchase my Sweetest, Softest Blanket till the Semi-Annual Sale and I’m honestly glad I didn’t as they sold out quite quickly towards the middle of December so I highly suggest nabbing this quickly!
Last year when I blogged about the Lambie slippers I got SO many emails asking me about them and it’s no wonder why as they are truly cute! These are available in two styles, a full slipper and a sock slipper. The sock slipper was extremely limited at one time but this past Summer I’ve seen them slowly appear back in shops but I predict both the slippers and the socks will sell out very quickly just like the blanket so do nab them early if you want them!
The slipper socks are a value at $10 USD and come in two colors this year!
The Lambie slippers have been revised lightly with a raised heel that allows the slipper to hug your entire foot. I like this new version as last year I had a little problem with the slipper turning inward! It’s about time for a new pair so I’ll definately be indulging! These are $16 USD and I believe a bit cheaper from last year as I recall paying more but I could be wrong!
The Bath and Body line up isn’t full up and available as of yet but I did come across a few pieces for the Holiday! I’m a sucker for Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint so I was quite excited they extended the scent to the hand soap! I’ll definately be stocking up this! These are $5 USD each and are available in all the traditional Bath and Body Works Holiday scents such as Winter Candy Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel!
One item that didn’t really catch my eye are the new Bath and Body Works Glittering Shower Gels for $11 USD. I’m somewhat bored with the typical scents they release year after year which are Winter Candy Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel! I may indulge in a Twisted Peppermint one however “glittering” shower gel doesn’t seem like something I’d love! Shimmer and glitter in my makeup items, yes, but not in my shower!
You can see more of the Bath and Body Works Holiday Collection 2008 by taking a look at the sneak peek on their website!
A few items so far have definately caught my eye and of course the Lambie items are on my wishy list for sure! I look forward to seeing what else is released for the upcoming season! I’m super disappointed that Bath and Body Works has successfully eliminated the Temptations Collection from both it’s Fall and Holiday Collections, I doubt these will be back ever. The items I’ve featured are available for purchase now online and I’m pretty sure stores must be stocking them too shortly! I haven’t been inside a BBW in a few weeks now but I’m pretty sure they busy stocking these up already or will be soon!
Want any of the BBW Holiday selections?
Love the Lambie Collection as much as your Muse?
Tell me all about it!

Last year I fell head over heels in lust and love with Lush Ghost Shower Gel. The shower gel was released during a Halloween Party last year and I fell hard for the beautifully scented shower gel that I stocked up on it in a major way before it disappeared for good!
This year Lush doesn’t disappoint by having another Halloween Party…a bit early..but on October 2nd, Lush will host an “online” Halloween Party for those who’d like to indulge in some early Christmas goodies, fun games, prizes, and of course some Halloween themed bath and body treats!
The party schedule is below and is Pacific Standard Time Zone:
|Chat rooms open.
|LUSH staff arrive and start giving out prizes, running contests, announcing offers etc.
|LUSH staff leave but the chat rooms stay open.
|Chat rooms close.
So are you attending?
Perhaps the Muse will see you there!

If you haven’t yet been exposed to Gwen Stefani’s new Harajuku Lovers Fragrances you must be leaving under a rock!
These things are everywhere, literally.
The fragrances have amazing Internet exposure and can be found at many high end counters across the line. I’m really impressed with the huge marketing campaign these have! Whoever is on the marketing team deserves a great big pat on the back for really getting the line exposed and out there!
I’m particularly delighted that these are appearing on popular sites like youTube, mySpace, Flickr, etc…..If you’re a beauty blogger you can really appreciate the fact that the marketing has extended itself to such a vast electronic market. Granted websites are one thing but youTube, mySpace, and even Facebook are quite another!
You can find any and all information you can possibly want on Harajuku Lovers Fragrance at the following locations:
Harajuku Lovers MySpace
Harajuku Lovers YouTube
Harajuku Lovers Flickr
Harajuku Lovers Facebook
Harajuku Lovers Official Website
I admit I spent way too much time on the website yesterday watching the user created karaoke videos and contemplating making my own. Guilty!
I’ve only officially tested out one of the fragrances and the rest I have tester cards for so I can’t review too completely on all the scents however I did head to my local Nordstrom and had a peek and decided I must haves them all! The Muse loves any and all Asian aspired goodies (my blog can attest to that I’m sure) and these are under my radar now so I’m definately buying one of each. After all, you can’t just have one! They’ll get lonely if they aren’t together! It’s a group thing!
I read a few negative reviews but I honestly only have positive things to say about the collection. The scents are very girlish which appeals to me in a major way as I really like lighter, sweeter scents. Each perfume comes topped with a cute little Harajuku girl which adds to the charm and appeal of collecting all of them! The line up consists of five different scents each a new and different experience.
I’ve been wearing ‘Lil’ Angel for the last several days and loving it. Although at first whiff the fragrance does have a rather strong alcohol scent this does not carry out onto your skin. Dry down is a beautiful blend of raspberry as the dominant note and moves forward with a combination of fruit and floral to create a fresh, sweet smell on the skin. In consideration that this is an Eau de Toilette I was delighted that it had considerable long wear and lasted about six hours prior to needing a fresh up. In my experience that’s pretty good wear for an EDT.
Although I’m not a big lover of florals I think Love was beautiful. It’s a light floral scent that’s a cocktail of roses, peony, and other softer notes with a base of musk. Love appealed to my girly side in a major way!
Baby is a powdery musk with top notes of white rose and a soft white musk base. Her name contributes to what she smells like, a baby! Very powdery, fresh, girlish, and sweet! This definately appeals to my inner child!
Although Music is a delicate floral blend it happens to very fun as well with a top base of pear and a base of musk and vanilla! It’s my second favorite of the five and really appeals to the fun side of my personality!
And finally G! G is a tropical blend of fresh coconut and cream that can only be described as fruity and lively! This is another favorite of mine. I love tropical blends and this definately brings that to the table but also pushes it further with notes of Cotton Woods and Freesia!
The scents are all really fun and I’ll be indulging in all five for myself. I can’t help but approved ‘em for purchase as they are too adorable to resist! You know what would be seriously awesome…if Gwen extended her line of fragrances and couture and brought in some cosmetics…that would be awesome! I’d be all over that like white on rice!
Want all five?
Lemming a certain scent?

Philosophy has wasted no time in getting it’s Holiday Collection out there for all the masses to enjoy! This year looks particularly delightful and I can see myself wanting quite a few of the items I’ve seen popping up!
Concentrating on bringing back old favorites like Sugar Plum Fairy and Eggnog plus adding additional brand new items like Pink Bubbly and Holiday Angel, make Philosophy’s Holiday Collection an interesting selection of favorite oldies and brand new items!
It wouldn’t be Christmas without new Philosophy Three-in-One Shower Gels! This year some old favorites are back but I have my eye on the new ones! Orange Cranberry, Pink Bubbly, and Snicker-Doodle to name a few! I’m particularly curious how Pink Bubbly will smell considering how much I simply ADORE the original Bubbly!
Some treats for your lips tasting of yummie holiday goodies is always nice but how about a few that are wrapped up and ready to give or hang on your tree? Take advantage of giving gifts easily with pre-wrapped, ready to hang Philosophy Lip Shines in new flavors like Spicy Pear!
New flavors of Philosophy Lip Shines are available as well including S’mores and Holiday Angel! I have my eye on Holiday Angel which tastes like Angel Food Cake! Yums!
Pre-wrapped, ready to give Philosophy Three-in-One Shower Gels are simply adorable! New and old favorites are available in these cute little gifts! I have my eye on Caramel Mocha Latte!
And finally a few gift selections are available this year which include everything you need to spoil yourself for the Holidays! Angel Cakes Gift Set and Party Girl! I’m particularly interested in Party Girl which has a shimmering body lotion! Fun!
Whatever your pleasure for the Holiday Season plenty of new exciting gifts for giving to friends and family or yourself await you from Philosophy!
I definately see some items I’ll be spoiling myself rotten with and maybe I’ll share with friends and family…just maybe…!
Want any of these goodies?
