I'm gonna let my geek side show!

Well if you didn't already know, I'm kind of a geek. Nerd. Dork. What have you. I used to play online computer games a lot (MMORPGs to be precise) I even beta tested a game once upon a time. So when I discovered a web series about gamers, written by a self professed gamer girl, I had to check it out. The Guild is total awesome-sauce!!! It's a hilarious, character driven show that just rocked my socks! I love Codex, and since also seeing Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog (another MUST see!) I've got a major girl-crush on Felicia Day.

In any case, this reveal is because yesterday was the release of the first episode of Season 5 of The Guild! Yay!! I discovered the show part way into season 4, so I've never really had to wait much to watch the episodes. lol It's fun to see how far they've come, and I hope we continue to see more seasons of the show! If they do make the transfer to TV, which would be cool & at the same time... not, here's hoping the show's integrity and originality stick. I mean... Cheese gouging! And pit of noob! And Clara... I'm a Mom at heart, drink up honey. It's hilarious. :o) So if you've got a minute, go check out this series, you won't be sorry!

Fragrance Offerings

You may recognize some of these fragrances from my first shop, Bella Bath & Body. Several scents that I've carried there will be coming to R.D. Apothecary, but under new names. Any questions, please feel free to ask!

EO = all natural fragrance of essential oils

Basmati - Soft and sexy, this is a very unusual fragrance! Milky, sweet, exotic and sensual... Basmati is a delicious gourmand scent that vanilla lovers are sure to enjoy!

Sugar Rush - A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam on a dry down of musks. This scent is young, fun and sparkling!

Norwegian Wood - The name is inspired by The Beatles, the scent is mysterious and haunting. A bit herbal, medicinal like lavender essential oil, but warmed with a bit of spice and spring florals.

Soul Daddy (EO) - Aged dark patchouli, zesty lemongrass with a bright punch of uplifting ruby grapefruit.

Lavender Fields (EO) - pure organic lavender essential oil

ChChCherry Bomb! - A bright and punchy black cherries with a touch of delicious almond. (formally called Cherry Almond)

Birthday Cake - Freshly baked white cake, rich and buttery. Topped with fluffy buttercream. Yummy! Sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Just, don't actually try and eat it!

Coco Cabana - Yummy and creamy, exotic coconut milk.

Kiss Kiss - A wonderful exotic fragrance with base notes of raspberry, cantaloupe, and watermelon, middle notes of jasmine and violet, and fresh top notes of grapefruit and kumquat. So fun, girly, sweet and fresh! (formally called Lick Me All Over)

A Peeeling - Bright and juicy top notes of mandarin, tangerine, lemon satsuma, and ruby red grapefruit, middle notes of bergamot, and a warm base note of oakmoss. Fresh and delicious! (formally called Yuzu)

Wasabi - Incredibly fresh and green smelling. It's sharp, but still very earthy and natural. A unisex fragrance for anyone who enjoys an herbal fragrance.

This list is evolving, but I will keep my scent offerings current in the shop listings and policy section.
