Happy Belated Meowloween!

I have been meaning to show you guys the Halloween edition of the Cat Lady Box forever now.  October is the perfect storm of my life.  The busiest season for Wylde Ivy and the busiest season for my photography business and my girls are extra curricular activity junkies.  So now that my household is just a little more stable....take a peek at this! 

This is the Crazy Cat Lady Halloween Edition Subscription box.  I absolutely love anything Halloween and October's box was fab.  The packaging for these boxes is always spectacular and the Halloween themes just put it over the top.   I love, love, love the art card by Denise Every with the five peeking cats.  This box also included fun fluffy cat ears by sugarlux and a gorgouse kitty cameo ring by msformaldehyde.  Since this is the Crazy box it includes two kitty treats.  This month was an adorable Black Cat Mouse by maubemoose with a fun swishy fur tail and stuffed with organic catnip and a Junkfood Flyer by Hauspanther.  Junkfood Flyers are each unique, made of recycled materials, crinkle, crackle, and fly across the floor with the greatest of ease.  Last and totally not least, the Purple Craze Cat Lady T Shirt.  The design is gorgeous purple on black but that is not even the best part.  Cat Lady's t shirts are soft, comfy, and simply perfection!

Cat Lady Boxes are a monthly subscription service that delivers fabulous kitty themed picked right to the doorsteps of cat lovers everywhere! 

Wylde Ivy's Annual Thankful Sale

It's that time of year again. A time that we here in the US really reflect on what we are thankful for. I say thank you a 100 times a day. From thanking people who reach out to me via emails and messages, to post comments and picture likes, to those out there spreading the word about Wylde Ivy and sharing with family and friends. I write "thank you", I type "thank you", I think "thank you" all day long. Thankfulness is always on my mind and in my heart. Thank you so much to everyone who makes Wylde Ivy a reality. I appreciate every single one of you. Wylde Ivy is not just created and run by me, but every one of you out there that as touched a part of it by supporting me and my family. Wylde Ivy is because of you! Thank you!

As the sun moves away....

As we make a slow turn a way from the summer plump leaves begin to tinge in the faintest of yellow, the golden hour haze gets a little more magical, the spiderwebs glisten heavy with dew, and.......MONSTERS!

That's right, the monsters are here!  This past week so many new scents hit the virtual shelves in my online shop. Old seasonal favorites such as Hello September, Dark November, Solstice Road, and Pumpkin Masquerade welcomed the all new scents like Cinder and Spice, Black Blossom Honey, and Shadow Fall.  Still, as exciting as all those luscious fall and winter scents are, I think everyone anticipates the arrival of the Monsters.

My limited release Halloween Collection are always favorites.  Gorgeous and unique perfume scents inspired by our favorite Halloween monsters and the stories about them you've never heard.  A zombie stopping at nothing to get to give his true love chocolates and crushed carnations, the Bride of Frankenstein's first thoughts upon waking, a sad and beautiful ghost wondering why she feels so distant from her love, a Mummy trying his had at finding love through a personal ad, and more.

This year, A Touch of Brimstone joins the collection.

The Story
By chance she crossed his path.  By chance his eyes found hers. When the curtain fell, it fell silently.  The curtain of magic that hid him, the true him, from the world.   She saw him.  He saw  her.  In those few moments, seconds at most, she had seen him.  It was not the him that he presented to the world.  That slipped away when he looked into those deep blue bottomless pools of her eyes and the memory came flooding back.  What he used to be.  What she used to be to him.  Lifetimes ago.  They had come full circle, back again through impossible spans of time and place.  Yet here she was, face to face with a monster.  Face to face with him.  But still, she looked at him with all the knowing and and love of their past selves.  Looked into the eyes of a thing, a terrible demon, and still her gentle warmth rushed towards him.
No he could not have it.  It had doomed them before, it couldn't be.  He'd spent centuries wish mongering for filthy people as a punishment, as a sacrifice that she may be at peace.  Oh the pain of those granted wishes. What was that spell again?   What was needed for forgetting....the dust of a star, an unspoken hope, a splinter of a soul, and just a touch of brimstone.

The Scent:
The sweet base of bourbon vanilla and warm musk mingled with crushed tonka beans and resinous amber, dried chapparal and sandalwood, and smoked vetiver and nutmeg.
This scent is part of the limited edition Monsters in Love collection and will be available through October 31st.

There Is a Bit of Crazy in This Cat Lady

My summer has been busy as it normally is for us.  We put a lot of miles on my car, a lot of miles on our bikes, and a lot of miles on our hiking boots.  I try to spend as much time as I can unplugged in the summer which means things can be pretty quite around here.  Now that my girls are back in school, I'm back to my regularly scheduled office hours too.   I've been formulating all new scents for the upcoming fall and winter season.  I have also been getting ready to change over my scent lineup.  That means have to have retire the spring and summer scents until next year, but it also means you favorite scents from last year will be making a come back for the new season!  I'm also super excited about getting my Halloween Collection out of hiding too.  It is always so much fun and so many of those scents are my all time faves.  I must admit that I've been cheating the last few weeks and wearing one of my "monsters" on a daily basis.

So, back to some summer happenings around here.  In between state park hoping, beach lounging, madly formulating new scents, and making and shipping perfumes....this happened....

That is a lot of mini bottles of Black Cat Perfume! So, where did they all go?  This is the exciting part!  Black Cat Perfume was included in the inaugural shipment of the CatLadyBox!   CatLadyBox is an amazing subscription box company that caters to cat lovers.  They source all of the coolest cat themed products and pack them into fun monthly deliveries that show up all happy right on your doorstep.  So did I mention that Black Cat perfume was in the very first CatLadyBox ever?  Eeek!  Exciting!  So back to the boxes, there are options!  They have two options, the original and the CRAZY.  The original includes 2-3 handpicked awesome cat themed goodies for you and if you are feeling a little crazy (the fun kind), then the CRAZY option includes goodies for you and goodies for your kitties.  Best thing yet.....CatLadyBox gives back 5% of their profits every month to various rescues and charities.

So I got a CRAZY CatLadyBox.  Now, confession time.  I don't have cats, because well, I'm pretty fond of breathing.  Sadly I've been allergic to cats ever since I was a little girl.  Cue the sad music and cut frame to a sneezing, wheezing, eyes swollen shut little girl trying to volunteer at the local shelter in the cat building dutifully brushing the cats (because she is too small to do any other work) until her mom comes and picks her up and never allows her to go back.  Yep, I'm that girl.   The good news is that I can share the box with my mom who is a crazy cat lady and has adopted every stray cat that has even just glanced at her doorway.  Obviously my mom doesn't care if I can breathe*.

Let's steer this train back to the boxes.  The box is awesome! Here is a little peeky July's box.

Tucker you are not fooling anyone.  The Meowgaritas are not for you. 

 Of coarse he sampled the Meowgaritas. 

So if you love cats or love someone who loves cats....CatLadyBoxes are completely awesome!

*Disclaimer: My mom cares very much if I can breathe.  As I've aged, I can tolerate cats in small doses so as long as I do not go to a tiny enclosed room with 75 homeless cats and try to brush them I am fine.  A little itchy...but happy and breathing.

The scent of apples and summer just go together. The overgrown apple tree that shaded our yard, perfuming the air first with it's sweet blossoms then with the flesh of the ripening fruit.
Crisp green apple peels, lush apple blossoms and a hint of sweet summer blackberries and white musk.

Lavender Berry Sweet Summer Perfume by Wylde Ivy
 Lavender Berry
This delicious fragrance belongs to my floral desserts line with Frosted Lavender and Violet Fluff. Sweet, tart, and herbal all in one. Vanilla infused sweet cream drizzled with summer blackberry reduction and topped with farm fresh whipped cream dusted with lavender sugar.

Wildflower & Wood
Summer wildflowers over sun scorched wood. A warm and exotic fragrance with notes of white meadow flowers, honeysuckle, oud wood, and aged patchouli.

Blue Tulip Summer Perfume by Wylde Ivy
Blue Tulip
Dewy tulips and lush greens swirled with fragrant lilacs hint of french lavender, neroli, and heliotrope and a sprinkle of fresh citrus peel.
