BPALCHAT trip idea for 2011

Hi guys!

Well I'm back on the BPALCHAT trip bandwagon, and here we are with another idea. How about Mardi Gras 2011 in Nola? We are looking at dates of Feb 25/26/27 so we catch all the great weekend Krewe's without the crazy insanity of the last weekend. Trust me, you don't want to be there then!

Here's a poll for ya!

Poll #1592446 Mardi Gras 2011

Would you be interested in going to Mardi Gras in 2011 with the BPALCHAT crew?


If you answered maybe, can you let us know how we can change that to a yes? :)

Dear Ladies

(Taptap, taptap)

Ahem, is this thing on?

I will be going to the Dirty South WillCall (omg Finally! I've missed the last three on account of being out of town) erm. Tomorrow.

Anybody want anything? Half assed reviews will follow as usual...

Smoky Moon 2009!

WTF? Is Beth making things up again? Nicotiana? Stephanotis? Pfft!

That said, anyone interested in a group order or decant circle? :)

ETA: I think I'm going to pass on hosting the group order this time around. Makes sense to not to it, as I'm still in Baltimore....

Thank you!

Ladies! Thank you sooo much for the flowers! They're beautiful and greatly appreciated. :)

First dibs on the last destash.

Having narrowed down my total perfume to about four bottles and about fifteen imps (!), I present the rest. =) Comment if you are making the wanty face on anything!

Mmm. Smelly.Collapse )

Tornado WillCall

Hello Ladies! Sorry for the lack of warning, but I decided I was definitely making the hike to willcall at...oh...six oclock this evening. Which proved to be an interesting choice on my part as we sniffed bottles to the tune of the tornado siren going off, and employees told us to drive safely and enjoy our tornado as we left. I went alone this time, so I actually met a few forumers... 10dimensions, savagerose, beansidhe...and overall it was a pretty good time.

So! Without further ado, I give you "Capiz's Half-Assed Reviews, Round Two". I promise my references to things smelling wet had very little to do with the storm raging outside at the time.

...come see...Collapse )


I received a very lovely vase of flowers today, from a very lovely group of ladies.

Thank you guys so much. The flowers are simple gorgeous...and they put a smile on my face. *hugs*

Order follow-up.


So, as I'm sure you all know because I won't shut the hell up about it, I should have my Canadian residency very soon. Once that much-coveted visa arrives, I'm planning to take a trip back to NOLA to get yearly check-ups, gather the rest of my possessions, and say farewell to warmth, nature, and other similar concepts. My tentative date for this is mid-to-end April.

Before then, I plan to place several orders and, since free shipping is involved over a certain amount, thought I'd open them up to anyone who wants to hop on. (Frankly, after paying Canada Post rates for almost a year, it will be a joy and pleasure to send items via USPS. :P )

The definites are:
Voda: Organic, artisanal soaps made in Connecticut. I ordered the "Oshun" box set back in November and have nearly finished the four soaps included: Sweet Ginger, Neptune, Moroccan Love, and Bay Rum. All of them were marvelous. Capiz also says that the Ginger and Blood Orange body butter is very good.

Bella Lucce: I need more face stuff, and if anyone wants to jump on for face/bath/body stuff, cool. :)

The possibles are:
Lucky Mojo Curio Co.: Vodou things! I'll have to place this order soon because all of the herbal oils, powders, etc. are freshly-made. My last order took about three weeks to ship, but the products are marvelous and definitely worth the wait. (I will also, of course, be around Sallie's shop and able to pick up items from there.)

BPTP: I am considering two of the massage oils and, if anyone wanted something that comes down soon (like the Lunacy tee or the Valentine's rose scents), I would be happy to place this order ASAP.

Let me know!
