YOU NEED Universal Voodoo Tarts

Universal Voodoo Tarts

I believe I introduced you to the wizardry that is Universal Voodoo Tarts in prior post somewhere. If you’re a fan of tarts you seriously, need to check Tod’s stuff out!

The man is a tart genius. His blends are orgasmic. Swear to Christ on a Pogo Stick.

How this man blends such intricate tart blends boggles my mind. Pure genius.

I discovered Tod’s tarts several years ago when he was still Alternate Breeding. I fell in love with his blend Honey Roast at the time. Last year I brought out his stock of the blend when he had a sale (believe it was last year?). I dunno why but the blend hasn’t been available for a while now much to my dismay. It’s heart wrenching not having access to this amazing scent!

Warmed honey, hazelnut, butterscotch, sweet cream, and espresso beans…! Amazing! Orgasmic I tell you! It’s like walking into Starbucks when you’re melting one of these but that Starbucks is located on Mount Olympus and their brewing the nectar of the Gods.

Well…anyway I’m telling you all this good stuff because recently Honey Roast came back along with two new blends available exclusively at the Soap Box Company. I quickly hauled ass over there to pick them up!

Musings of the Day: Do You Dig Beauty Boxes?

Beauty Boxes

I recently had a reader e-mail and ask me a really great question (Thanks Crotchfairy!). She wanted to know what I thought of Beauty Boxes.

You know like Birchbox, Blissmo, Glossybox, etc…

I used to be a very big fan of the Little Black Beauty Box which I’m not even sure is around anymore. It was $19.95 and available, I THINK, every three months. Don’t quote me on the price or when they released it, etc…as I can’t really remember much of the details. Seemed like ages ago.

Moral of the story is…I LOVED that box. It basically introduced you to a slew of different E-tailers. Being a HUGE E-tailer and Etsy h0r I liked getting a little box introducing me to new E-tailers I never tried before. My subscription almost always introduced me to at least three or four new shops. Each box included samples and full size items including Tarts, candles, little makeup products like lip balm, and body creams, mists, etc…I think Little Black Beauty Box is really the original beauty box and kinda what started it all. Because outside of that box I don’t recall anyone else doing something similiar. UNTIL…just recently when suddenly everyone has some sort of beauty box in the works.

Pricing varies but boxes range from $10-$30 and contain both samples and and full size makeup products.

So what exactly do I think of beauty boxes?
