Speakeasy Vanilla Oil by WigglePerfume
This fragrance from the bottle smells pretty much how it does on my skin. It’s strong, spicy and rich. At first I get a dark bourbon vanilla and frankincense but that softens a little into the background and a subtle creamy vanilla comes out. The amber and vanilla base is lovely – perfect combination and artfully blended.
It’s cooler than most of my Vanilla perfumes which are quite warm and it reminds me ever so slightly of Eau Duelle by Diptyque but nicer. Sometimes I get a wisp of Patchouli which is strange because it’s not a listed note. It reminds me of something some of my friends would wear, my hipster alternative friends that is. I think it’s a little too much for the office or fancy parties. It does really smell like it would suit a tipsy day of baking in the kitchen with music - which makes me happy. 8/10.
“I’m not usually a vanilla person. It’s such a classic, feminine, and decadently sexy scent, I’ve always really wanted to like it…but just couldn’t. Well, I’ve fixed that problem! My Speakeasy Vanilla is another thing altogether, not cloying or overly precious. This vanilla does not wear pigtails. It does not have a “daddy’s little girl” license plate holder. This vanilla is a grown ass woman who spent a hot, tipsy day in the kitchen, rocking out to Etta James in heels, perfecting her creme brulee. Or something like that…” – Nani from WigglePerfume

She

five—a—day:

She is made of coffee cream.
Of half-sunken lilypads.
Of fishtails. Of wet feathers.
She is made of fox blood.
Of exit signs.
Of shark teeth and hunger.
Of paper cuts and lemon juice.
She is made of Coca Cola.
Concentrated sugar.
Parch in the throat.
Inconceivable thirst.
She is made of cinnamon.
Candied apple and sweet tooth.
Small hands.
An elephant’s memory.
She is made of split hair
and hand-me-downs.
Books fat with raindrops.
Library fines. Bus tickets.
Broken-winged sparrows.
She is made of go.
Of leaving, but never left.
Of long strides. Of had enough.
Of unsigned postcards.
She is made of poetry.
Of clichés. Of smudged ink
and escapism. She is made
of everything your mother
warned you about at the dinner table:
Ripped stockings,
no respect, loose morals,
asking for it.
She is made of mystery.
Coattails and cigarettes.
Whiskey shots. Cemeteries.
Made of trying too hard,
but still you love her.
Still your heart catches
in your throat when you
touch her. She is made of
tumble-dried bed sheets.
Scatter cushions.
Velvet.
She is made of dandelion spores.
Of grass blades and razor blades.
Of fear. Of bitten lips.
Of Stephen King novels.
She is made of thunderstorms.
Of roar. Of high tide and the
entire spectrum of the colour blue.
She is made of your hands.
Of small courage.
Of your violent need.
She is made of your take.
Of your please.
Of your desperate.
She is made of your hands.
Which is to say
she is made
of shaking.


This is a picture of what I see when I’m walking home after work. The entrance-way light of my house is like this beautiful beacon calling me home. After a long and tiring day of work it makes me very happy.

Movie: Boyhood by Richard Linklater. I’m really looking forward to watching this movie and think it’s a beautiful concept. I love Linklater’s Before series (Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight) for it’s fascinating and heartfelt insight into the the human condition with profound ideas on love and life.

My work, over Easter, did this cool thing that made me happy. We’d hide these easter egg wands in the guests rooms with a note saying ‘if you find one of the easter bunnies missing magic wands please return it to the reception and get a reward’ and they would get easter eggs. We were also running a colouring in competition to win a large easter bunny toy and chocolate likeness. Everyone loved it and it was very cute. :D
