Welcome back to my blog! Today I have a fun autumnale etsy and lush haul for you!
I have found that organic cosmetic lines can be very limiting when it comes to offering variety and they often dont change their products up from season to season. I was bored at looking at the same old stuff so I decided to have a look on etsy. I found PILES AND PILES of lovely handmade options for fall. I just love to be festive so I like to change my products up according to season.
I am very exited to share some of the lovely goodies I found while browsing etsy.
I was looking for a particular perfume with a true honey aroma as this can be so hard to find. I ended up on a shop called symbolic imports because they offer a perfume called ”Sweet Honey“ They also offer samples so I decided to try a couple more scents along with it.
My thoughts on the perfumes I received:
Not what I was looking for in a honey perfume. It is SUPER sweet but the name of the perfume did imply that. I was looking for that raw sweet but somehow earthy and dirty smell that raw honey has. This perfume smells like it has alot of Vanilla added to it and vanilla is not my favorite perfume note. I am not saying this is not a nice product, I just think perfume is very personal and its hard to please everyone when it comes to scent.
Oatmilk and Honey
Not for me either. To me this just smelled like straight up marzipan. If that is your thing I highly suggest it!
Oh my goodness! This perfume captures that mysterious and dark yet comforting scent of a chilly walk under the full moon. The notes of this perfume are black tea, jsamine, and sandalwood. The perfume hypnotizes you with the earthy fresh scent of black tea leaves and then comforts and warms you up with the amber floral notes of the sandal wood and jasmine. Much like that feeling of going out for a evening walk and then snuggling up in a cozy cabin. I will be buying this one in full size for sure.
Last thing I got from symbolic imports is the salted caramel lip balm you see on the top picture. MMMM so good rubbing that caramel goodness on your lips!
Over all I really enjoyed looking at the fun diverse shop that symbolic imports is! I am also very happy with the originality and thought put into the products! I would suggest you check this shop out!
While pursuing my search for products in the fall theme I looked for a fall scented lotion. Every night before I go to bed I moisturize my hands with a lotion and the lotion I was using at the time smelled like citrus and coconut which I thought was to summery for this time of year, I came across a shop called Green Nymph Gratto and let me just say I fell in love with the name of the shop and the packaging right away! The packaging is very simple yet beautiful. They craft handmade lotions and you can choose any of the scents they have listed which there are some really fun autumn scents available! I chose falling leaves and I LOVE this scent, the scent is a bit more foody than I expected but I loved the warming smell of the cloves and it reminds me of chai tea which I am loving at the moment! The consistency is so nice and rich but not so rich that it can be called a butter or whip. It is just a perfectly crafted hand lotion!

Before I ended my etsy search I decided to try out some tinted lip balms because they are my favorite lip products for on the go! There are so many options when it comes to lip balms on etsy but the shop Petite Threla stood out to me most. One because the packaging was beautiful and the lip balms looked professionally named and branded. My next reason is the color selection is abundant. Let me tell you I am so glad I ordered from this shop! The delivery was quick and the shop owner was so lovely and included a free lip balm and left me a note!
The first color I purchased is rose and you can see it on my lips in the picture above. Its a perfect rosy pink. Very delicate and subtly shimmery. The scent of this is of true rose luxury! The pigmentation is also very subtle but you can build on it.
Next I chose Jasmine. This color is a beautiful grape purple with a fairy like sparkle effect! The smell is to die for if you are a jasmine fan like me!
Excuse the blister on my lip I just got over a cold and rubbed tíssues on my skin too many times. Something that really helped with that blister was Threla’s perfectly crafted pomegranate lip balm. Hands down best lip balm I have ever tried. The PERFECT consistency! Not to greasy but softer than a burts bees. Extremely long lasting! I am also obsessed with the bright fruity scent of this lip balm, so cheerful and a little strong for a lip balm but I LOVE that!
If you want some well made fun and delicious lip balms check out Petite Threla
Now its time for some LUSH action! I Popped into the shop just to have a look at the Autumn winter selection and two products caught my eye and my nose. I have not shopped at lush in a while because though they keep preservatives and emulsifiers to the minimum they still do put things like parabens and sulfates in a great deal of their products. My daughter is currently obsessed with bubble baths and natural sulfate free soaps do not give alot of bubbles for a bubble bath. I was like hey my girl wants a fun bubble bath I am going to give her one! Which leads us in to my first purchase.
When I entered the shop I was approached by one of the many lovely employees the lush always has. I told him I was looking for a fun Halloween inspired bubble bath experience for my daughter and as soon as he showed me the sparkly pumpkin shaped bubble bar, I was sold! The scent is nothing to special but it gave mountain levels of bubbles and turned the bath into a beautiful orange sparkly soup! My daughter had a wonderful time!
After playing with alot of lush products the friendly salesmen took me to the sink to wash my hands and I used a soap called yog nog which is one of there new Christmas scents! I personally am not ready for Christmas shopping yet but this soap smelled like tofee and burnt sugar! I had to have it! I like to cut pieces off of the big chunk before use. Yog Nog smells so good! It has a great lather too!
That is all the festive purchases I made! I feel so very much in the fall and holiday spirit now. I will probably do a similar haul like this around December. A great thing about shopping on etsy is the prices are so reasonable and everything is handmade. I love helping people turn their hobby into a way to make money!

Wishing you all Beauty and Bliss
