The real reason behind the name is really a play on the term "Moody Girl" but moreover the fact that scents can really have a mood altering affect in your brain. In fact, the term "aromatherapy" means just that.
a⋅ro⋅ma⋅ther⋅a⋅py /əˌroʊməˈθɛrəpi/ Pronunciation [uh-roh-muh-ther-uh-pee] –noun
1. the use of fragrances to affect or alter a person's mood or behavior.
So you see, while I have been labled moody oh, once or twice in my life, it doesn't mean I'm an ill-tempered crabby girl given to violent mood swings. ;) It means simply that I make smell-good stuff to alter moods. (Mom, Dad, Sis, Bro: you are banned from commenting on this blog)
So.....here's to hoping you all have a moody day!

Also, unbeknownst to me (until I did a self indulgent google search on myself,)The Little Black Box did a review about my products too. I just love all the love.
Ok, I'm done talking about ME. Thanks.

Happy Halloween and Dia de los Muertos!
If you haven't heard of The Little Black Box then you're missing the Grand Daddy of all grab bags...er...boxes. Indie artists and crafters, bath and body care makers, jewelers and soapmakers for example send in samples to be put in the boxes. As a buyer, you pay for the box (which is currently $19 including shipping) and you get a nice little black bag full of mystery goodies. Its a pretty cool way to sample some Inidie sellers' wares and satisfy the little kid in you who gets to open a mystery gift! I'm thinking these items may make some great stocking stuffers too....IF I decide to share that is.
You can get one too! --- http://thelittleblackboxes.com/order.html

And to remember to face our fears head on....
And as my friend Leonardo was saying...a smile can tell alot about a "lady." So why not carry one.As for me....
I was just having trouble deciding which Knight in shining armor suited me best.
The chivalrous one riding in on his trusty steed....
Or the mysterious, moody one I kept seeing lurking everywhere?
Probably neither. Oh well....cleaning all the dirt and polishing that armour doesn't look like much fun anyway.
Next year the girls want to come back as fairies.
What a welcome little step outside of reality it all was.
I promise to post something soon that isn't just talking about my products. Oy vay, that must get old. "I wanna talk about me, wanna talk about I wanna talk about number one oh my me mine, what I think, what I like, what I know, what I see....I like talkin' bout you you you you usually....but occasionally, I wanna talk about me! Wanna talk about meeeeeeeeeeeeee." That's a song. I swear I didn't make that up.
PS...here are the other blogs about...you guessed it....me!

- Daughter's Health Issues
- Father's Heart Surgeries
- Car accidents
- Make that TWO car accidents less than 30 days
- $185 grocery store trip
- New Spreadsheets to learn at work
These are the things that life sometimes hands you. Sometimes its all at once and sometimes its just doled out in a steady stream. Either way as my mother so eloquently stated yesterday, "sh*t happens." I know that one should always look for the positives in things, and I do but sometimes when sh*t happens its the random warm fuzzies that just make us say, phew, I can deal. The positive things are...everything is OK with my daughter's health now that we found the right doc, my dad came out of surgery just fine, the first car accident-we walked away with a totaled car but not even a scratch on us, the second car accident was a minor bump that reminded me to pay attention and stay in the "now" moment, I paid for the groceries just fine and we have healthy food to eat, the spreadsheets....ugh, I can handle them but they aren't gonna be fun.
This week I've had two random people I don't even know contact me about featuring my products in their blogs and to them I am grateful. These are the warm fuzzies that keep us going. Thanks guys!
Here's one of the blog posts. The other has yet to be written but its coming.
And to return the warm fuzzy, check out her Etsy shop. http://AtSeaLevel.etsy.com

And yes, I'm aware "smellerific" is probably not in the dictionary, but hey, neither was ginormous and it made it in!
You can find them online at Moody Girl Aromatherapy. Yes, shameless self promotion. :)

The small bags they handed us were deceiving. We ended up with about 20 lbs of apples! That's alot of pie. But, they cost about 1/3 of what they would cost in the grocery store and the view is just so much more appealing.
Not to mention the friendly folk we met along the way.Now if you're looking for the apple pie at the end. There was one. The photographer (er...me) didn't have time to take any photos of that since I was taking the pie to dinner at my folks house. And frankly, the pie didn't stick around long enough. But trust me, it was GOOOOOOD. If you've never tasted apples fresh from a tree before, you don't know what you're missing.

Maybe there's a certain serenity in letting nature take over (by nature I mean weeds galore.) My garden statues seem to think so.

It was shipped super fast and it even came with a bonus sample of room spray in Lime Basil that smells fab. I love the scent of the soap, its called "Beach" but smells pretty similar to a perfume oil I wear called "China Rain." The soap lathers great, but I have yet to use it for shaving as suggested. Maybe I'll tackle my prickly legs today. I was a little surprised at the size since the soap was pretty pricey at $5 for the soap and $7 for the stand. I guess its pretty hard to judge scale by some photographs on the shop site. The stands are actually egg cups. Thanks to the free sample and the super-saturated scent, I was pretty happy with my purchase.

Every time we shop for school supplies we both get a little giddy. We love getting the list and checking off each item as we find them. Its not only the fresh, virgin spiral notebooks and the smell of crayon wax, its the excitement of a new year. It signals new beginnings and the scary yet exciting adventures that lie ahead. Its the promise of something bigger and its a welcome glimpse into fall when its 103 degrees outside. I feel the rush too. Just like I did every year when it was time to buy new school supplies.
It may sound silly, but these are the moments to savor in life. I know I have only a few more years left to shop for school supplies with my daughter. Yet still, somehow I think I will still buy them even long after she's gone off to college. Just so I can feel that rush again...and maybe flashback to the excitement and promise of a new year. Screw New Years Eve, I'll take new school supplies any day!
