Sugar Plum Fairy is a bit deceiving (at least for me she is). I originally purchased my first bottle two seasons ago off the Philosophy website without knowing what she smelled like! In my minds eye I had assumed she’d be a spicy sort of scent boy was I wrong! She’s quite fruity and sweet! Some people may find she smells a bit plastic like but I really enjoy the smell! It’s very difficult to explain exactly what it smells like! It smells almost like some sort of fruity gum or candy with a faint, faint underlay of pineapple. It’s so yum and I buy it every year!

The lipgloss is a complete contradiction to the scent of the shower gel! Go firgure! This is what I had originally thought the shower gel would smell like! It’s spicy and warm and almost gingerbread like but not quite (real gingerbread not Philosophy’s version of gingerbread!).

I purchase it every year and at $16 for the gloss and an 8oz bottle of Shower Gel it’s back on my wish list for another season! Especially for gift giving reasons!

In celebration of Sugar Plum Fairy’s return I cracked open my last bottle I purchased last year! Ahhh now I can safely use it (without fear it wasn’t making a come back) and stash up on some more!

Tis the season to smell fruity and delicious!

Twisted Peppermint Body Spray (but there’s a catch!)

Well…I heard about Twisted Peppermint Body Spray way back in the summer! If you remember I had blogged about the Fall and Christmas releases in a previous blog.

First of all I must say that I’m really loving the Temptations line at the moment and I might go ahead and say I actually may even like them more than the Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gels. The scent is stronger, the linger much longer than the Philosophy Shower Gels, and hell they are cheaper!

Anyway.

Prior to this they have never released the line in a Body Spray. You could get it in several popular formats such as Shower Gel and Lotion but never Body Spray. This year they have released one single body spray that I had also mentioned in a previous blog!

More good news is that they have released a second body spray which is in the Muse’s VERY favorite scent, Twisted Peppermint!

The bad news? It’s $11 as compared to the normal $8 price tag. More bad news….it’s shimmering body spray sigh.

Oh woe. Sigh! Great dramatic tears of disappointment!

Why couldn’t they just give us a normal body spray why does it have to be a freaking shimmering body spray?

As much as the Muse adores shimmer, sparkle, glitter, and shine she doesn’t want it in her body spray thanks very much!

I always find body sprays that contain shimmer sticky and they stain good blouses and shirts icon sad

I guess this isn’t on the wish list! I’m so disappointed. I was hopeful for a simple body spray with the sweet minty fresh smell of Twisted Peppermint instead they give me a shimmering body spray!

Thanks alot Bath and Body Works you’ve ruined my Monday!

Want it?
Hate it?

DKNY Delicious Night is available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s and is the third fragrance in the popular Be Delicious line!

The notes in this sound interesting enough, Frozen Pomelo, Crushed Ginger, Blackberry Martini Accord, and Purple Freesias….

Hmmm!

Could be yummie!

I am a fan of the original Be Delicious but I’m not such a big fan of Red Delicious. Let’s see how big a fan of Delicious Night I’ll be icon wink

The Muse will let you know what she thinks when she’s had a whiff of this!

Early Gift Giving from Bath and Body Works

It’s never too early to start shopping and my little eyes have spied some nice deals on Bath and Body Works all wrapped up and ready for buying and giving!

$15 will nab you a duo of a jumbo 12oz size of Hand and Body Lotion plus a Hand Soap in a cute caddy!

These are available in the three popular winter scents that are always available at Bath and Body Works around the Holiday Season and those are Winter Candy Apple, Vanilla Bean Noel, and Frosted Cranberries.

Personally, for $15 each these make a cute little gift for your mail lady (if you have a woman delivering your mail), something for a neighbor, a nice grab bag gift, or it’s just nice having these around for what I call “the unexpected”. We all get unexpected gifts sometimes and it’s always nice to have a little extra gift tucked away for those times when we can whip it out and offer it to the person who has unexpectedly surprised us with something sweet!

These are $15 at the moment and I’m sure as the Holidays approach they’ll go back to their regular $22 price range so why not nab a few now and save some money icon wink

Christmas Arrives Early at Cherriflip

You may remember my post in August when Cherriflip updated it’s website with the Halloween goodies for our baths and showers! Click here if you missed the post and read about the yummie tricks and treats they have available for sale!

Now Christmas has arrived early and a new batch of goodies are up and available for purchase at my favorite bath shop!

Our little mate Rudolph is making his cheery holiday appearance at Cherriflip with a bubble bar all his own entitled “Red Nose”. Red Nose smells of sweet christmas ribbon candy with an underlay of light flowers! Yum!

Frosted Star is another intriguing little bath bar to make your bathing experience a seasonal joy! This bubble bar slice smells of blackberries warmed by musk with an little twist of basil! Hm! Count the Muse as being curious about this interesting bar!

Finally, a most favorite scent, Snowbelle! Snowbelle is wrapped up in a bubble bar this season and the Muse couldn’t be happier as she adores the sweet minty fresh scent of Snowbelle! Snowbelle smells of sweet, juicy berries swirled with Christmas peppermint! It’s the perfect blend of cool and sweet!

Each bubble bar slice is $5.95 and shipping is free on orders of $80 or more! The sales and specials don’t stop there so keep your eyes on Cherriflip’s site to see what sort of sale they are having from week to week so you can nab yourself a deal icon wink

Bubble bar slices are a solid form of bubble bath which can be crumbled under running water to create mounds and mounds of luxurious scented bubbles in your tub!
