9:08 pm - Dairy Princess here I come

The The Body Perfumery is back! Yay!

I've already placed my order for two Butter Me Up lotions in Dairy Princess, one for home and one for work! I can finally stop hoarding the 1/8 inch I have left from last year.

Can anyone recommend a good hair iron? My senior year of college, my roommate had a CHI iron and I loved it. Also, when I had my hair done at a salon, they used a CHI iron. However, I'm looking for other recommendations, experiences, reviews etc. (positive or negative reviews welcomed)

Thanks in advance!

Let me start by saying I am a military spouse. My hubby's command has a website for spouses and this was posted on it so I figured I would pass it along to you lovely ladies as well.

Nordstrom is changing the logo on their makeup, so they're selling

everything that says "e.l.f." for $1!!! (you still have to pay shipping, but it's SO worth it!!)


The make-up line E.L.F. ( Eyes, Lips, and Face) has been bought out by Nordstrom and will be re-packaged with the Nordstrom name on it. They are getting rid of all the make-up in ELF packaging. They are selling everything for $1. YES ONE DOLLAR. You do have to pay shipping, However, even with that charge it's cheaper than buying make-up anywhere else and it is fun to try things when you don't have to worry about the cost! They have powder, mascara, brushes, nail polish, you name it .. Just thought I'd pass along the good deal.

Also, if you use the coupon code: CAROLINA you will get $7.50 off your first $15 of your purchase

Thanks to everyone for letting me know that the entire thing is a hoax. I rarely wear make up and when I do I have my tried and true favorites so I was not planning on making any purchases. I'll be passing on the information from snopes.com as well as Nordstrom.com to the Commanders wife so she can take it off of the Spouses site!!!! Once again thanks for the heads up!

I left the coupon thing alone because from what I understand that is still good. According to Snopes.com (last updated May 12, 2008) it will get you 50% off of orders totaling $15 or less.

current mood: calm

I've decided I need plumeria-scented shampoo and conditioner, and went to MMU to place an order but they are closed. Of course, they re-open May 20th but I'm too impatient.

Should I go with Body Perfumery or Northern Essence?

8:00 pm - LUSH-type goods on Etsy

Disclaimer: I have not ordered anything from this seller, but I saw a recommendation for their products and it immediately made me think of the ladies here!

Mad City Sue on Etsy "Fragrances now in house available for all our custom scented products: Alkmaar (LUSH type), Snowcake (LUSH type), Honey I Washed the Kids (LUSH type), Rock Star (LUSH type), Tova type, and Flowerbomb (Viktor & Rolf type)" - a blurb from the store's info.

The same person recommended Rainforest Soap Shack, just as an FYI.

11:15 am - The Little Black Box

Today is the day you can order a Little Black Box. I've never ordered one, but I've been meaning to for awhile and always miss the day. They look pretty fun. (:

Happy Friday!

1:20 pm - LUSH's Buffy the Backside Slayer

I've had a chunk of BtBS sitting in my bathroom for more months than I can even begin to count, and finally, last night, I used it. I scrubbed my arms, my shoulder, my elbows, my legs... it was lovely!

Not so lovely, however, was the distinctly slick feeling on the bottom of my tub. The whole room needs to be scrubbed down anyway (it's the fiance's chore and he's been putting it off), but is this going to happen anytime I use the bar? Any way to cut down on the effects, or should I wait until the tub is scrungy and in need of a cleaning anyway before I use the bar?

Okay, we're moving and I am trying to get rid of as much stuff as I can ASAP!

$15 including shipping & delivery confirmation. Anyone interested?

9:34 pm - Lush!

 I have a $25 dollar gift certificate to Lush.  What should I get?!  

I don't have a lot of time to relax in the bath so nothing that would involve doing that.

12:51 pm - Winter Skin and Hair?

Two winter-related problems!

1.  My hands are really dry and scaley-feeling.  The skin is thankfully not cracking or anything.  It just feels horrible.  Does anyone have a recommendation for how to treat this?

2.  How do you deal with static hair?  Everyday I have to just pull my hair back - or risk looking like Don King.  So not the look I want!  I've tried spraying my brush with hairspray, but it's just been making my hair limp and dirty looking.  I'm use Pantene Pro-V volumizing hairspray, if that helps.


current mood: cold

11:23 am - No More MMU discount

Well, our MMU discount is no more. absolute_bliss tried to use it & got this email back

Hi Jen,

We no longer offer that discount, as we want to keep it fair for all of our customers, and offer the same member specials for everyone. We do have $5 off $25 code called welcomeback currently active. Other active coupon codes are facebook10 for 10% off orders over $60 and facebook20 for 20% off orders over $120.

Hope this helps!

Pffft. Probably because I haven't ordered in ages, and I know a lot of you haven't either, she decided it wasn't worth it. To be fair, when she implemented it, this community alone was bringing in hundreds of dollars a month for them. Still, it would have been nice if she'd let me know!

11:13 am - New rule

No more posts from professional sellers. There's plenty of places to buy cosmetics from, and all of us know where to find that kind of thing if we're interested.

If you're a member and you have a few things to sell on the cheap or give away free for shipping, that's fine.

I'm adding this to the info page.

In other news, NorthernEssence.com is open again and I am so in love with their foaming baby wash. Even Mr Baby gets in on the custom scented goodness. I get the wash in their Got Milk scent for him and it's dreamy to have a cuddly warm freshly bathed baby that smells like sweet milk to snuggle with.

3:33 pm - sorry y'all

I see people are annoyed. I'm indifferent.

Should I restrict sale posts to individuals selling off personal stash items? Restrict posts by 'professional' sellers to once a month? Suggestions? Ban them entirely? Let me know, whatever people want is fine with me.

7:32 pm - Fresh Face of Lush result

(cross-posted from my journal)

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that I am the US runner-up in the Fresh Face of Lush casting call!

The prize for that according to the webpage is "$200 goodie/gift boxes" -- I'm not exactly sure what that means, I'm just happy that I won something, and honored that so many people took the time to vote for me.

Thanks to everyone for your support!

Happy new year!

current mood: honored

2:47 pm - Dear Olivia

Olivia - a.k.a mydimenscha, musiclover2681, glitterdream26, and whatever other usernames you are using now...

It has been reported to me that you have not delivered items that people purchased from you all the way back in June.

If you want to offer things for sale here, that's okay with me, but it's NOT okay to rip people off.

Deliver the goods or I'm removing you from the community. Under all your names.

2:46 pm - Yay!

NorthernEssence.com is open again! I just ordered $70 worth of conditioner.

I also asked her to start carrying bigger bottles, I'm lucky to get 3 washes out of 4 ounces of conditioner.
