Haus of Gloi: Summer Reverie 2015-Mini Review!

Hey friends!

I’ve got a tiny review of Haus of Gloi’s Summer Reverie scents today! I’ve been on a bit of a no-buy this summer, but all the scents in this small Summer collection sounded too good not to try. I ended up getting a few sample sizes of the perfumes.

Check out what I thought!

Haus of Gloi: Summer 2015 Collection

Hey friends!

I am moving my regular Subscription Saturday post back a day, so I could get this post out in time for the Haus of Gloi Summer Restock tomorrow at Noon (PST) time.

So I’m here today to tell you about the good smells of Haus of Gloi’s Summer scents!

Check it out!

Happy Hour: April Favorites!

Hey friends!

How’s your Friday? Mine is lay down. You heard that right. It’s lay down. That’s a feeling.

So anyway. My April Favorites run the gamut this month. Some of my picks are super professional/conservative products that saved me when I went on my 6 interviews. Some are the more bolder colors and products I used when I needed a pick me up. Really, it’s all over the place.

So check out what I was loving this month!

Happy Hour: March Favorites!

Hey friends!

It’s weird how March was only 12 days long this year. If you tried to convince me there were 30 days this past month, I would probably shake my head sadly for you, because it just didn’t happen. At least that’s how it felt to me.

It was hard to pick out favorite things since this month was only 12 days long, but I managed to create a March Favorites post because I have a duty to my readers. Also because there were a lot of pretty things and good smelling things this month.

So check out what made the favorites cut for the shortest month of the year!

Haus of Gloi: Spring 2015 Review

Hey friends!

I’m a little late to the Haus of Gloi Spring Review game, but I have good reason! I got these last week, and I really wanted to give my perfumes about a week to settle, especially after a few went bonkers when I first tried them, (which you’ll hear more in the reviews).

But it’s a week later, and I’m here with my well informed review. Just in time for the Haus of Gloi Spring restock on April 5th! 

Check out what I thought!

Haus of Gloi: Valentine’s Collection 2015

Hey friends!

I tried to get this post out super quickly, because Haus of Gloi is doing their Valentine’s restock of perfume oils, pumpkin butters, and maybe whipped soaps, this weekend on Feb. 8th. (Or that’s what I heard on the internet streets. even if this fact is incorrect, I have a feeling the restock will be soon since they’re trying to get ready for Spring.)

Hopefully, my little review of Haus of Gloi’s Valentine’s Day collection can help you out if you’re interested in purchasing.

Indie Advent Calendar: Christmas Day Haul!

Hey friends!

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! Mr. Danger and I had two awesome days with both sides of our families. We are super lucky to have families who we love and enjoy spending time with, and a good time was had by all!

For the final Indie Advent Calender day, Mr. Danger threw a bunch of bath products in a box, and it was such a nice little haul with Haus of Gloi, sixteen92, and Solstice Scents products. I am a very spoiled lady!

Let’s check it out!

Haus of Gloi: Yule Collection

Hey friends!

How was your weekend?

Mine had some ups and downs. The highs: I ate French fries and got a new haircut. The lows: I had to spend the weekend writing the data analysis chapter of my thesis.

In fact, this post is being written as I take a break from analyzing data. (Did you know, one pro of qualitative research is you get to use different color highlighters? Just thought I would share that, if you were considering grad school.)

Anyway, it’s time to analyze some real data. Like, how are the Haus of Gloi Yule scents? Well, I can answer this research question below!

Oh, and in case you missed it, I reviewed their Autumn Collection last week here. Because I am ON IT, friends.

Haus of Gloi: Autumn Collection

Hey friends,

This is my last stop on the road of trying out all of the autumn indies. (Note: This is not all of the companies out there, it was just all of them I could afford/not be a hoarder with 59898 pumpkin perfume samples.)

Haus of Gloi appears to be one of the more popular indie perfume and body companies at the moment. It’s run by two people on their own website and has been around for a few years now. They offer perfume oils and other bath products such as whipped soaps, bubbling scrubs, and more.

Haus of Gloi perfume samples range from $2.50-$3, and their full sizes are $12. Their bath product minis are around $4-$5 and full sizes are $8-$10. I think this is super reasonable, especially when in comparison to mainstream perfumes or Bath and Body Works products.

I missed their original Autumn release (this is back before my indie love, when I was twiddling my thumbs and smelling like cheese, I guess), and I had been forewarned to be ready to go when HG restocked their autumn items. So in order to find out why everyone loved this little company (you know, for Science), I did pounce when Haus of Gloi restocked their autumn items, and I got all of their perfume samples and a pumpkin butter. (I think a few hours later it was all sold out, and they restocked a third time.) I’ve been trying them out since then and I’ve definitely been developing some opinions.

Haus of Gloi shipped the day after I ordered it, and I got all my lovely scents 4 days later. I was very impressed with their shipping, especially since I was part of the fall restock madness.

Naturally, I completed this review in a timely manner. (Uhh…Haus of Gloi just launched their Yule products yetersday, oops.) But even though these autumn products aren’t available anymore, it seems many return for future years. So start your wishlists a year early and/or hello 2015 readers who are stumbling on this post now.

Anyway, let’s get real about fall scents now:
