Duochrome kits are here!

So....I promised the duochrome kits months ago but got so busy and I didn't have a chance until now! There are a few kits to choose from and many many different colors. All can be purchased individually as well- just let me know if you can't find a color on my site and I will re list one for you.

For those of you not familiar with "duochromes", they are color shifting powders! My favorites are the white powders that shift different colors, you can use these alone as a highlighter or on top of another color to create a totally unique color. Use with lipstick or lipgloss- looks AMAZING on red lipstick (sequin, twilight, platinum are my favorites) you can also use these with clear nailpolish or colored nailpolish.

I absolutely love these magical powders lol.

Check out for the latest kits!

Yep, I'm having another sale!

This time it will be on select items...I made wayyy too much of my best selling colors and also some colors that I haven't promoted in a year or so that a lot of you don't know about. ALL of them are awesome colors, none of these are pigments that I couldn't sell or crappy colors that nobody wanted. Sale starts tonight (7/6/09) at midnight. I will update this post later today with colors and swatches of the items on sale. There will be approximately 40 +/- colors discounted!

All sale items will be easy to find on my etsy site, just click the sale tab and all of the items included in the sale will be listed there. All you have to do is use promocode : OVERSTOCK and you will be refunded your 30% discount through paypal the same day that you pay for it. If you would prefer, you can opt for a revised invoice, just convo me through ETSY or add a note in "notes to seller" at check out. If you are mailing in your money order, just let me know in notes to seller at check out and be sure to add your promo code and I will send the info to you to send payment :)

I have about 100 of each color but I wont be making more for this sale so once it's gone, you wont receive the opportunity to buy these at this price again :D

This is the last big sale that Calypso Minerals will be having until Christmas!

Grumpy Girl Soap

Ok this is who I shower with (well, most of the time)!

One of my very favorite scents ever, don't know what I would do if I ran out!!!

Grumpy Girl is so creative with her soap creations, she uses awesome ingredients and her descriptions will make you LOL unless you are old or uptight or both (EW)

This one is called "Bunny Broiler" everyone should try this one. Trust me, I am a soap a holic and I know good soaps when I see one.

Description: Bunny Boilers are women on a mission... a stalking mission. You WILL be mine!

Sweet scents of sweet pea bring you to your happy place... with the man of your dreams tied up lovingly in the next room.

*Sweet pea flowers, lily of the valley, and rose are rounded out with touches of melon, musk and vetiver.
Go get one!

Puppies are 12 days old

Here they are, I can't help myself! They are only a few days older and haven't changed much, only grown a ton. Their eyes should be open in a few days. I'm in total love.

A couple more puppy pictures

Well, I think I have found a new way to relax! The babies are so precious, I hold them next to my ear and they make the sweetest noises :D Puppy breath is the best smell in the world! They are 8 days old in this picture :)
Wish I could be so care free! I think that they look more like little seals than puppies.
