A Tardis Work of Art

I'm not a watcher of Dr. Who. I know, it's like Dr. Who week on here but complete coinkydink. haha Nonetheless, no reason I can't enjoy the posts anyways!

I've just completed this Tardis bookmark that was a prize for a friend. :)

Done with acrylic paints on mixed media paper. Used various glitter polishes for the starry effect (then evened it out with a top coat so there weren't blotches of shine) which gave it a nice glossy look so that ended up being a good thing anyways. :)

Snapped a quick photo when I realized the scan lit the glitters funny and made them dark so here you can see the silver glitters. :)

I'm pretty bad about sharing my art on here. Let me know if it's something you'd like me to do more!

Have a fabulous day!

Degree - Motionsense // Fresh Energy

Recently received this deodorant to review for Influenster. I usually use Va Va Vanilla from Secret, which gets thumbs up from my honey. (I don't wear perfume, so my deodorant is really the only scent I have, making that apparently my signature scent. haha)

But, I figure, it doesn't hurt to try new things.

Enter : Degree - expert protection Motionsense in the scent Fresh Energy. #contest

Degree with MOTIONSENSE™ technology releases bursts of freshness with every move you make, keeping you protected for longer.

To lift the deodorant, you twist the clear part at the bottom. This may be redundant, but I have to admit I was confused at first. I'm used to a little wheel type thing at the bottom to twist, so when I saw this, honestly, I thought it was another cap covering where to twist. haha I know, so embarrassing. Oh well.

Having such a big thing to twist 'round and 'round is rather fun though. haha

Long lasting Degree with MOTIONSENSE™ formula with a scent containing raspberries and blackberries to help jumpstart your senses with bright bursts of lily of the valley and tiare flower.

I couldn't pick up any of those scents. In fact, I thought it was supposed to be like an "unscented" run-of-the-mill ordinary deodorant scent. It's bland but strong, and I don't care for it.

I'm not sure any of the scents stand out to me, but perhaps Tropical Rush, Berry Cool, or Peach Burst - depending on how they smell in person.

Unfortunately, at least in this case, it does release with movements. Which means the more I move, the more I get a whiff of that unpleasant scent. However, I can definitely see this being an enjoyable thing - with a better scent. 

Really, my only dislike is the scent, and there are various options for that. It is true to its word on holding up against activity, releases fresh scents, applies well, and lasts long.

For now, I'll stick with my Va Va Vanilla, but depending on the price differences in store - I may pick up a different scent of this next time I shop to give it a try, as it does seem like a handy product! 

Overall, I'm quite impressed!

Do you have a signature scent?
Let me know!

Have a fab day!
