Luvmilk Review: My Favorite Fall and Winter Scents from OfficialLuvMilk on Etsy

So… initially, I meant to have this post about my favorite Luvmilk Fall scents go up on Thanksgiving night, to coincide with Luvmilk’s Black Friday sale – but my SSHD had other ideas, as it went into a death spiral on Thanksgiving afternoon and just barely allowed me to run enough checks to confirm that yes, it was a disk failure and not something else, before I had to completely reset Windows to be able to get into the OS at all and backup the last few days’ worth of files. And given the state the SSHD was in, resetting Windows? Literally took two full days.

I mean, on the bright side, Black Friday is possibly the best day to suddenly need new computer parts, yeah? But it also pretty much nuked any chance I had of writing this post in time for the sale, since even with the crazy fast shipping I get from Newegg (they have a distribution center ~2 hours away), it was still a Holiday weekend and deliveries were backed up… so I didn’t get to install my replacement SSHD (and my new SSD, since I finally decided to pull the trigger on that as well after “meaning to” buy one for about a year now) until the next Tuesday.

I did also totally forget to put a bracket in my order (weirdly, I definitely looked them up, but for some reason did not add them into my order with the cables. I am smart?) and Amazon Prime saved the day, both by delivering the bracket I needed within an hour as well as a 4-pack of one of my favorite semi-local beers:

All in all, not the worst turn of events.

So here I am, with my OS on a new SSD and my PC now all zippy because of it – let’s talk about some yummy Fall and Winter indie fragrances!

Valentine’s Day Luvmilk Bath & Body Haul

If you follow me on instagram or twitter, you may have seen me mention that I’ve started doing the PIIT28 program from Blogilates. After a few false starts where I realized I wasn’t quite in shape enough for daily HIIT workouts and ended up doing other programs to get ready for PIIT28, I finally managed to start for real this February.

So far I’m having a lot of fun, but man – the muscle soreness can be real, even with my beloved Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator! I finish each workout pretty sweaty and tired, so I started thinking… wouldn’t it be nice to have a nice, soothing bath after my tougher PIIT sessions?

And, you know, I’d been stalking the Luvmilk shop on Etsy for awhile… who just so happens so specialize in milk baths. And, you know, the shop had just so happened to recently add a bunch of delicious-sounding Valentine’s Day scents…

I mean, you can see where this is going, right? I decided to gift myself some goodies from Luvmilk, both for Valentine’s Day and as kind of a carrot for my continued perserverence in the PIIT28 program – you know, finish the workout, get a luxurious bath. That kind of thing!

And that’s all it took to convince myself! I did try to keep this relatively small, despite Luvmilk having sooo many yummy-sounding scents. It was a bit rough, but my package arrived yesterday and everything smells absolutely fantastic, so I think I chose well ?
