Tokyo Milk – Honey & The Moon

Standard

I absolutely love this perfume.

(Just ignore my crappy photo taking)

Look how cute the bottle is on the back.

(Or maybe it’s the front)

I got it when I went to visit Miss Kathryn in Cambria last week. She mentioned to me that Tokyo Milk had come out with a new line called “Dark” and I couldn’t wait to check out the fragrances. The one I wanted, “La Vie La Mort,” sadly sold out within a few days of Kathryn stocking it. Well, sadly for me, definitely not sadly for Hearts Ease. So I got my next favorite scent, which was “Honey & The Moon.”

The bottle lists its scents as: Sweet Honey, Sugared Violet, Jasmine and Sandalwood. To me, it smells like honey, vanilla and jasmine. Either way, I love it. I’ve been wearing it even when I’m alone doing chores and no one else can smell it. Yes dear friends, I am absolutely addicted to my new perfume.

The other thing I love about Tokyo Milk is how affordable it is. One ounce is about $30. The last perfume I bought was Kenzo Amour, which was about $60 for an ounce.

So, if you’re looking for a new fragrance, check out Tokyo Milk. You can always find it online, or you can call Miss Kathryn at Heart’s Ease and have her send you one.

Love & honey & the moon,

Camille

Treats From Kathryn

Standard

Hey all! Most of you know Katherine came up for a visit last weekend. She was attending a seminar and just managed to squeak some time out to hang out with me. Of course, she came bearing gifts.

Oh the treats! I don’t need to go condiment shopping for awhile.

From left to right:

Green & clear bottle: Basil and sugar! As weird as this seems, Katheryn tells me this mix is really good.

Wooden herb grinder: No, you can’t have it. It’s mine! All wood and completely refillable, you’ve gotta try one. I love this one.

Miel l’Apiculieur: Fancy honey. No other way to say it. And yes, it tastes freakin’ awesome.

Herbal mustard: Kathryn says this tastes really good with sausage and other types of meats. How come Fernando went right out and bought some just to try this?

Black cherry jam: Dude, this one really needs no explanation. Yum!

Confit of Rose Petals: Remember I was lusting after this the first time I visited Hearts Ease? I finally got it. And I’m saving it for a special day. I know, I’m just weird like that.

Bruschetta mix: This is a cool mix of herbs and spices just for bruschetta. Or anything else you’d like to make taste like bruschetta. And did I mention I love bruschetta?

Lastly, my beloved peppermint tea in a pretty puple jar. If you cut open my veins, Kathryn’s peppermint tea will come boiling out. Take that heartburn and indigestion!

I swear if I owned her store, there would be no profits. Just me messing around and using up all the inventory. So it’s probably a good thing I don’t live anywhere nearby.

Tasty Treats from Heart’s Ease

Standard

I already know Katherine is one of my best friends ever. If I ever had any question that this woman knows me, just take a look at what she put in a goody bag for me on our last day of herb class.

Treats, oh blessed yummy treats!

Here are some close up shots of the goodies in the bag.

Lavender infused honey from Bonny Doon Farm. You can’t see it, but inside is a single lavender stalk. I can’t wait to try this in some tea or slathered on bread with butter.

Heart’s Ease own Strawberry and Champagne Preserves. This is finger lickin’ good. I swear it. The moment I opened the jar, the scent of champagne just filled my head. I mixed this with a fig and walnut cream cheese and it was AMAZING. (Yes it had to be in all caps.) You can really taste the champagne and it works so well with the strawberries. Oh.Em.Gee. That’s all I can say.

I am saving the bread herb dip for a special occassion. It smells and looks so good that I can’t wait to impress my dinner guests when I put this on the table. You better believe I’m going to claim I came up with this on my own. Ha.

Also in the package was a bag of loose peppermint leaves which I’ve been drinking as tea. After any meal, and especially dinner, peppermint just makes me feel so right. (Especially now that we’re in fall) My favorite item was the card she put in because we both love Halloween. I have it tacked up right in front of my desk.

All the items you see above are from Katherine’s shop, Heart’s Ease. I am planning to go down in December, and I can’t wait to get back.
