Fortune Cookie Soap Fall 2016 box

"As You Wish"

Princess Bride you guys!! Let's jump right in because I'm sure you guys are just as excited to find out about this box as I am.

DROP. YOUR. SWORD-Fortune Cookie Soap (Honey, apple mead)
It's a really nice, refreshing apple cider-ish scent and VERY glittery. Fruit scent lovers, here's looking at you. 

Prepare To Die-OCD Hand Sanitizer (Cookie dough, clove, saffron)
Brittany, this one is for you! This one is a real nice fall bakery scent. It's probably one of my favorites in the box. The spice and cookie scent are really well balanced. 

Mostly Dead-Whipped Cream (Golden honey, almonds, pumpkin puree, amber)
Pumpkin lovers, you are going to go crazy about this one. It is a mild pumpkin scent that smells good enough to eat! I want my whole house to smell like this.

Inconceivable!-Perfume Oil (Fall woods, black amber, pears, whipped vanilla cream )
I just don't have enough good things to say about this box. Even though this scent doesn't have any pecans, it smells like pecan praline to me. 

Mawiage-Scented cotton ball (Pound cake, cardamom, pistachio, rosewater, buttercream) l can't smell this one very well on the cotton ball, but the scent description sounds yummy. 

Pit of Despair-Steam Me Up Scotty (Patchouli, lemongrass, plumeria)
While I don't find this scent very autumnish, it does smell amazing. It's heavy on the lemongrass and plumeria and would be a great shower steamer or linen spray. Or you know...all the things. 

Buttercup-Shampoo (Candied rum, fig, bergamot, vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla musk )
This is the one scent of the box I'm not crazy about...I get black licorice from it. 

True Love-Facial Cleansing Oil (Citrus, jasmine, sea salt)
This was a perfect product choice for this scent, in my opinion. It smells like a high end beauty product should smell. It would also be a good air spray or linen spray.

Knight Cream-Facial Cleaning Oil (Unscented)
It has no scent so I can't describe that for you, but it is very moisturizing. I think I'll definitely be buying some in a full size. 

If you subscribe to this box, comment and tell me which scent was your favorite! Inconceivable (perfume oil) and Mostly Dead (whipped cream) are the scents I love the most, but the collections scents as a whole are so cohesive.

Unfortunately this soap box is sold out, as Fortune Cookie Soap is such a fast growing business; however if any of those scents sound like something you would enjoy, visit their on Friday, August 26th at 6pm CST for the launch of this collection.

Life Update

Hey fishies! You have no idea how much I have missed all of you. Life has been so hectic lately.

The last blog post I made I told you guys I was about to have my tonsils out. That happened, and it was dreadful. I had to be taken to the emergency room via ambulance because my throat started bleeding like a scene from a horror movie. That happened a couple more times, but I was able to stop it without having to go to the ER. The pain didn't let up until almost a month post surgery.

Within two weeks of my tonsillectomy, my youngest daughter had to have surgery and was life-flighted to a childrens hospital due to complications. As you can imagine, that hurt my heart and occupied a lot of my time. Once she was released from the hospital, we took a trip to the beach to relax after everything that had gone on.

The night we were heading home, I got a call about a family emergency that has since only got worse. Life has been hectic but I am ready to get back to my normal routine. I thank you all so much for your patience in my getting back to the swing of things. Keep an eye out...I'll be bringing back an old favorite, a freebie post!
