AntiFashion Organics

If I weren't so much of a Pansy I'd totally stretch my ears just so that I could buy plugs from this shop.

I came across this shop when a friend of mine was over at my house talking about how she wanted to have "Hello Kitty Plugs".  Her ears are stretched to 1/2 inch.  Of course me being an Etsy freak, I decided to go on and stalk out some Hello Kitty plugs.  Low and behold the plugs I found were the cutest plugs ever! I wanted to keep them for myself!.  Okay so back to the story :) I emailed the shop first to see if they could ship them out the next day (because my friend wanted to wear them for her husbands homecoming*army*. Apparently he's in love with hello kitty... I didn't ask why... ha ha.) Anyway, They were quick to email back and totally understood that we needed these plugs because it was a state of emergency!---I totally went there!

Anyway here are the plugs! Apparently Etsy doesn't get rid of receipts :)
Seriously how darling are these?!

I was overall impressed with the quality and the quick shipping. The customer service was amazing also! I mean how many companies would be willing to ship them out next day? Most companies on Etsy are like okay, "we only ship our items on Monday's."  yes, I've been to an Etsy shop with this policy. Also, my friend was so pleased with these that she wanted more! (But knowing her she probably hasn't bought anything! haha.)

They offer plugs that range in various sizes and types. Wood and Resin. The wooden plugs are hand made by the shop owner, Rob Black. Here are samples of his work!

Here are samples of the Resin Plugs

I had to throw in the Avenged Sevenfold ones because I'm such a huge fan :) 

If you are interested in any of these products, they are very reasonably priced and very sanitary as well.  Plus if your new to everything they will give you all of the info on how to clean and take care of your plugs properly if you ask. 

Facebook page: AntiFashion Organics
I give them an A++.

By the way I also want to state that I only do reviews on products worth reviewing. That's why you will see a pattern that I am completely satisfied with the products.  Now if I come across a product that is totally poop then I'll definitely blog about it! :) I just wanted to get that out there. :)

Have fun shopping yall!

Addie Ladawn Jewelry

I had the pleasure of dealing with this company twice; Both times I fell in love with the products I had purchased.  The first product I had bought from Addie Ladawn's Etsy shop was a custom made Lady Death Cameo necklace. I had posted a picture of it in my previous post called "Vampire Monday".  But in case you haven't seen it, here it is!
I saw the cameo and fell in love.  So I had asked her if it was possible to put it in a locket, and make the chain 14 inches. And she did it with no problems at all! .  I love the feeling that my necklace is custom and that I had it specially made for me.  After that, I just kept stalking her Etsy shop and I finally broke down and bought cute petite rose studs! Well the package came in today!

So I open the package, and there is a cute black box with a ribbon around it, sadly I didn't get a picture of the package tied up... I was seriously like a little kid on Christmas morning ripping into it.
There was also a note that was in the package just saying thank you. Which is sweet because most business's just ship the packages with the packing invoice, that's it.  So it feels nice to get a thank you note! Definitely a way to keep having people come back to your shop.
(by the way super cute paper!)

Also included in the package was a business card.
Okay, so on to what I ordered.  I saved the best picture for last!  I had posted a link to the super cute earrings on my page, and had stated in the comment that I really wanted a pair of Light Blue ones next.  I ordered the Light Green.  When I opened the package and read the note that there was a "surprise" included. Now mind you I'm looking retarded as I open the package and say hmm... I don't see anything, haha. I unfold the paper (super cute !) and I see the pair of light blue rose studs that I wanted! Along with the light green ones of course! :)
I am in love, and I'm definitely going to be a returning shopper.  I want to thank Addie Ladawn for being so nice and caring to me! I love the quality of the products and they are just adorable.

If I had to say the only suggestion I'd make to her would be to include a packing slip or a receipt. But that's just because I'm a nerd who likes to store those things. It wouldn't really matter though because I do have a Paypal account that sends me one, but a hard copy is always nice to have :) (for those who don't own a printer, i myself do in fact own a printer...)

If you are interested in any of these products please check her out!

*I did not get paid to write this review and did not receive these items for free. I also gave my honest opinions on these products.*

Pocahontas Anyone?

If you have read my previous post about the wonderful feathers I had purchased, here is the follow up! :)

I bought rooster hackle the other day from a wonderful shop I found on  If you are interested in the feather fad and you want to make your own, check out their website here : or by going to their Etsy shop :BearyBox . 

I purchased a set of 12 feathers for 4.75 and shipping was 1.99.  I bought them June 3rd, and got an email on June 8th saying :

Order sent :D Thank you for your patience

You can also visit our website


Please allow 1 day to be updated online

(Insert USPS Code here haha)

Needless to say, shipping was super fast ( with a home based business I give them a week or so to ship it, They are usually one man show's so you gotta give them a chance).  I'd say based on the personal email I got telling me that my order had shipped, that is great customer service.  Most companies wont notify you personally, they will have a Paypal notification sent to you saying the status of your order is shipped.  

Overall I give them a superstitious seal of approval :)

Alright so on to the nitty gritty! YouTube a ton of videos on making feather earrings.  Seriously its that easy.  :D I know I'm kind of a YouTube nerd.

Then I went to Hobby Lobby and I bought earring findings, little hoops (to connect the feathers to the chain) and well chain.  I also picked up some cute sparrow's and the blue beads I had purchased a while back from Walmart.

I seriously wanted to go with a Pocahontas feel to these, I'm all for the colors of the wind and such. Haha. 

First things first! Detail.  

I'm in love with the bird.  I think it adds a nice touch.  I'm also sorry for the messiness of the wires.  I actually tried to make them look like that.  It looks more Indian(ish) to me.  Okay Okay its the "rugged" look. Alright onto the length and the whole earring.  Sorry for the picture of the actual earrings by the way!  I am using my blackberry at the moment for my pictures so bear with me until I can get a camera that I cant kill! 

I am in love with the Natural Grizzly Feathers!

You cant see it here, but at the end of the chain, I put another bead to give the earring more weight.  These earrings are so light!  I went with an earring back called a Kidney Wire.  Which by the way I might go back and get a different set, I love the style (because I feel like they wont fall out) but the ones I have right now don't seem sturdy enough.. 

All in all; I love them.  I'm so glad I talked myself into making my own.  I hope I inspire you to do the same! Plus jewelry making is such a fun hobby! And it saves you money! woop woop for saving money!

If your interested in Jewelry making, I know a very reputable site that will have every thing you will need!
Enjoy Lovelies! :D

Vampire Monday :)

I would like to share with you a shop who I've purchased from before,  She has some amazing listings and it just seems fitting to put lady death in this blog! 

I absolutely love this necklace (yes its my own picture).  I feel more seductive when I have on this locket, weird right? haha

Anyway, The shop owner had custom made this for me, the chain is 14 inches instead of 16 so it sits high up on my collar bone (gothic anyone?) and I am in love. . . wait did I already mention that? Maybe its because I love it so much! haha.  Anyway if you are interested in a similar necklace or any other jewelry (she doesn't just do steampunk/gothic ) then check out her shop here at : Addie Ladawn.

Alright moving on!  Okay so have you ever came across something (for you sewers out there!) that your looking at it and say to yourself... " I could totally make that hmm..." then you take a bunch of screen shots of the item and try it yourself? Yeah, I'm so going to do that with this next item!  I found this shrug while stalking people on etsy and I fell in love! The back personally I feel like it should be a bigger ribbon than what she has made it with, but overall I give it a Superstitious <3.  

Now tell me that this isnt the cutest shrug you've ever seen?! Okay, so for those of you that arent as into making your own things then here is a link to the shop where I took this photo from.  By the way, this shrug (without the flowers) is 38 dollars.  Made of taffeta; which I happen to love taffeta.  haha.  Anyway here is the link! : Vasini <3.  

Alright, I cant just do a little blog without including a makeup product, After all I do have a beauty page and this blog is mainly for reviews.  

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Mineral Maven over the course of well. I dont even know how many months but to be honest, she has some of the best makeup I've ever used.  I had the pleasure of purchasing this shade of eye shadow from Mineral Maven when she had a sale going.  I have yet to receive it (she shipped it today yay! :D ) but when I do, which it should be here by Friday (double yay!) I will be doing a review on her company as a whole.  How exciting is that!

Drum roll please! So last but not least! The best for last! Mystery X ! :D I am in LOVE with this shade of purple.  Its a deep purple, and well its so gorgeous. As far as I can tell this shade has a huge amount of sparkle, which to me, the more sparkle you have, the better off you are in life :)

Ah! Its so pretty! 

So, if you get all 3 things, you are set on your way to being in vampire heaven :D 

If you would like to visit her shop, here is the link to do so! She has other amazing colors to choose from too if you don't do the dark look :D

Miss Maven

Hope you all enjoyed this lovelies!
