How was your weekend? My baby brother was in town! He’s the Production Manager for a band and I got to see him and go backstage, it was fun! Also it’s the only time I’m ever VIP for anything, so I always feel pretty special.

Hope you guys had a good weekend, too.
So. I am really bad at not blogging. I know I said here that I was taking a break, but it seems the closer I get to finishing the thesis, the more blogging I do.* This also appears to be directly connected to the fact that as the holidays get closer, more and more awesome beauty things get released. And I just can’t contain my glee, Solstice Scents’ Foxcroft’s Autumn Festival Colletion is a prime example of this!
When they released Foxcroft’s Autumn Festival, I grabbed a sample set, for about $20 with shipping. This was both a bad and good idea. Bad because I want some full sizes and their bottles are on back order, good because there were a few surprise favorites I wouldn’t have ordered in full-size originally. I bought my set when the Collection went live on the Nov. 1, it shipped Nov. 3, and I was drooling over it on Nov. 8th. Not bad!
Before I get into the scents, I am going to admit some bias right now, I have become a big fan of Solstice Scents in the past few months. Their oils work really well with both Mr. Danger’s skin chemistry and with my own. I’m not sure why this is, but of all the indies I’ve tried, SS’s perfumes smell stronger and last longer on me. Skin chemistry appears to be a fickle thing, so I highly suggest sampling perfumes before you commit, but Solstice Scents has become much beloved in the Danger Household.
Now, even though I already have some love for Solstice Scents, I did keep an open nose when testing out these scents.
Don’t you love their packaging?
