Meribel Party!

So many thanks to @Tryazon, @Meribeldesigns and @Jamcobrandzusa for this AMAZEBALLS prize pack! Let me break this down:

-2 Peek a Boo Palz doggie dolls. They have 2 modes: one plays peek a boo and lifts and closes ears with a baby laugh track. Other mode sings “Do Your Ears Hang Low” with a second verse of “Do Your Ears Hang High”

-1 Walkie Talkiez panda doll that records short phrases/words you say and repeats them back in 2x speed and higher pitch while walking very fast towards you! This is a hilarious toy that can be creepily fun as you say stuff like “boogers!” or “howdy doody poopyface” and have the doll repeat that back, lol.

-2 pairs of fuzzy slippers. I received the unicorn and narwhal varieties. They are one size and the opening should be tight enough to fit snug against your ankles. I was really hoping for the llama pair, but these are still great!

-1 flamingo mug. This is my new favorite mug! The handle is so cool and it’s microwavable and good quality.

I hosted a hot chocolate party that needed a lot of prep. Here’s what I served:

-whipped up 2 different batches of hot chocolate (white chocolate with lemon peel and cinnamon, regular milk chocolate cocoa with a marshmallow melted in)

-English afternoon tea mixed with organic peppermint green tea (after the hot chocolate ran out!)

-cocktail weinies braised in a jalapeno pineapple jam, soy sauce, hoisin sauce

-cucumber tea sandwiches with cream cheese, crushed mint, dill weed, Italian bread

-s’mores station

-not pictured: homemade biscotti with dark chocolate brought over from my friends and a side of fig preserves brought over from another friend

Cheers!

Daphne is obsessed with Mimi-face these days. I take white eyeliner to draw her whiskers and a spot of pink lipstick on the nose!

I used bath oils for the first time last night and while it does not bubble or create any visual spectacle, it did make my skin kind of moisturized afterwards! The scent was also quite strong and lovely!

The Ritual of Ayurveda

My Fall mani–featuring a classic vampy red from VS, Essie chrome and blue glitter topper.

Tryazon and Rituals sent me the Rituals of Ayurveda medium gift set to review! Look at this ultra-fem, ultra giftable box and arrangement! I’ve tried Sakura and Dao before but was slightly afraid of Ayruveda because it might be too spicy or strong. I was pleasantly surprised by the Indian rose and sweet oil scent because it was not too cloying or overwhelming. I found it very feminine and lush. Thankfully, there wasn’t any incense-like smell and it was not headache inducing at all. The scent lingers and feels very mature. I would definitely recommend it for an older female demographic like your mom, older sister, MIL, aunt, etc.

First time trying a Rituals hand liquid hand soap. It does not disappoint! This gave a rich lather and the boxy shape makes it seem really high end. My hands didn’t feel tight or dry afterwards.

The body scrub with pink Himalayan salt is wonderful. The scrub wasn’t too abrasive and the oils in it help with the application.

The foaming shower wash is an innovative way to lose the loofah! I’ve had issues in the past with the deluxe sized version because the nozzle dispensed too much at once but the full sized version seemed to be okay. The foam gave a rich lather and it felt like washing with clouds.

Lastly, the body cream was bomb! In every one of these gift sets, this one is my favorite because of how perfect the texture is. This cream is rich, thick, fast absorbing but not greasy! It is a joy to put on!

I bought a set of 12 bath bombs from Amazon that came beautifully packaged. Daphne picked out the first one we used–the coconut lavender! Fizzing action was medium and the color payoff was A+! Scent was almost non-existent but that’s not the worst thing when you’re bathing a 2-yr old.
