Oona Queen of the Fae Alter


Good morning, dear readers!  

I just need to set up my light box and then I'll start taking photos with it again.  It's been all packed up since I moved at the end of August, and I haven't gotten around to putting it together. :O I think I'll do that this morning.

In the meantime, here is an alter I finished yesterday:


She was really fun to paint! :D  There are several things that I want to change, but I had to say enough was enough, lest I work on it for a loooooong time.

Have a great day and hopefully I'll be back soon with better photos! :D

Toodleooooooo

Merry Christmas

Hello dear readers,

I hope that everyone has a safe, and happy Christmas! :D

The weather is really warm here right now (4 degrees Celsius and I live in Ottawa, Ontario), and we were having a thunderstorm! :O  So bizarre!  First thunderstorm I've ever experienced on Christmas Day.

Anyhoo, have a merry Christmas and I'll hopefully be back for more posts soon :D!

Lush Northern Lights Bath Bomb Review

Good afternoon, lovelies!! :D

As the Christmas season is upon us and that glorious day is speeding towards ever closer, Lush has a plethora of wintertime goodies out to enjoy!

I think this year is a huge hit for them.  Not only do they have returning goodies like Rose Jam shower Gel and the ever classic Snow Fairy (in more than one incarnation!), but they have some new and wonderful innovations, like So White and Hot Toddy shower gels (the latter I will be reviewing soon!).

I hadn't had a chance to get to Lush in the longest time, but on Saturday I went on a trip to the not-so-local store to grab some gifts for some friends (one of whom is my best friend, my sister!).

It was a hectic day, as this Lush location is in a giant mall, and there were soooo many people all over the place.  I'm not the best in crowds, and I haven't been very well lately, but we soldered on and managed to snag some delightful finds.

My sister picked some things up for me as well, and the Northern Lights bath bomb was one of them.


This is such a lovely bath bomb!  The scent is a gorgeous floral aroma (jasmine and ylang-ylang), and the outside of the bath bomb is a lovely purple, studded with white stars.



Because we have a tendency to not want to wait until Christmas to give each other gifts, I got to use this now :D.  

Once in the water, it propels itself gently around the tub while spouting streams of gorgeous hues (purple, blue, yellow) and a few stars end up sprinkling the surface of the water.


I wish the camera on my phone let me take better photos.  This was more bright in person.


It looks like a face crab here from Half-Life! :D


Although my photos don't do it justice, the water turned a gorgeous purple.  It was softening on the skin, and although the bath bomb itself has a strong fragrance, it blended into the water and didn't become overpowering in the bathroom.

This made for a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing bath!  I would highly recommend this either as a treat for yourself, or as a gift to a loved one this season.

Take care and I'll be back with more Lush Christmas reviews soon!
