Bath on a Budget: Skindazzles

In continuing with my Bath on a Budget hot topic of the moment today I present to you some nice goodies from Skindazzles!

Two bath products that I adore from Skindazzles are the Bath Bombs and the Shea Boom Candy!

The Bath Bombs and Shea Boom Candy are rotated in scent as seasons and holidays change so check back often for new scents on both! At the moment my little eye spies scents like Candy Cane Cake and Gingerbread in celebration of Christmas, which will soon be upon us!

Bath Bombs are your standard bath fizzies that fizz, pop and swirl around in your tub making your bath water soft and beautifully scented! I find the scents in the bombs quite strong and lasting! I have many places I buy bath bombs from and Skindazzles makes some of my favorites!

Shea Boom Candy is a treat for your body! If you like your bath water moisturizing and soft these wonderful candies are what you seek! They are soft and squishy and melt away happily in your tub as you bath scenting the water and making your skin soft and sweet! I normally crumble this under running water but you can float it in your bath water and laze while it melts away! Upon exiting your bath you’ll see how gorgeously smooth your skin will feel!

Bath Bombs and Shea Boom Candy at Skindazzles are most definately fitting for bathers on a budget, bombs are $3.70 and candies are $3.

Please keep in mind prior to ordering from Skindazzles that airmail shipping applies as it’s a business located within Canada however shipping prices are fairly reasonable if you get a few items!

Starring Fragrances by Ashley Peldon

You’re Muse happens to love unique perfumes that she can’t get in regular shops that sell fragrance! My tastes in fragrance run to the unusual I guess and when I’m seeking something sweet, foody, or unique I visit with the gorgeous Ashley Peldon at Starring Fragrances to get my fix!

I have many, many, a bottle of cocktails that Ashley, herself, has created! The scents at Starring Fragrances are mostly in the foody range so if you’re a grave lover of scents that smell of cookies, cakes, or gorgeous decadent foody items this would be the spot you want to grab some very interesting blends!

Ashley has recently extended her popular perfume line and is now doing custom blended hair and body care items such as lotions and shampoos! I haven’t personal tried any of the new products but I can give my Muse approval to the wonderful perfume blends that are created at Starring Fragrances!

The thing that totally sells me on these perfumes is the incredible staying power and special notes within each perfume! One or two sprays is all you need to smell completely edible and delicious all day long! Upon spraying one of these you can distinctively pick out the notes with the perfume which is so amazing. If I spray myself with my favorite blend, The Scream Queen, I don’t get one particular scent from the perfume I can smell all sorts of notes through the blend all day long! As the day progresses and the perfume dries down and heats up with my body temperature I can smell the tart sweetness of the berries, the luscious vanilla ice cream, and the yummie bubble gum!

If you’re looking for a unique experience in your perfume world Starring would be a great place to start!

Some of the Muse’s favorite blends:

The Scream Queen
Yummie Berries, Vanilla Ice Cream and Bubble Gum!

Yellow Marshmallow
Yellow Cake with fluffy marshmallow!

Red Licorice
Strawberry and Cherry Licorice! Mmmm!

Who Spiked the Cupcakes?
Yummie cotton candy, vanilla cupcakes, and frosting! Oh my how decadent!

With a Cherry on Top
White Cake, Marshmallow, and of course Cherries!

Starring also does a line of tarts which are fantastic as well! If having your house scented with yummie baked treats sounds tempting do check out the tart line up!

Starring Fragrances is Muse approved and I can’t say enough good things about this great little e-shop!

The customer service is fantastic and packages are shipped in a very timely manner with little to no wait time! Ashley is extremely sweet and accommodating with requests if you should have any! Starring does ship via parcel post which makes the Muse impatient as her goodies normally end up taking from 7-10 days to arrive. This can’t be helped as all liquid must be shipped via US parcel post by law! Starring even has a Frequent Buyer Reward System that offers various discounts with each order you make!

The Muse always tries to get nice goodies for you and Ashley has been kind enough to offer readers of Musings of a Muse a special treat and as it’s Halloween it’s always nice to get a treat or two!

You can try out a 1oz perfume for 1/2 Price from Starring Fragrances by entering code MUSE during checkout! This is a great deal as perfume’s run $26 at the normal price!

Go get yourself a sweet treat for Halloween and tell the Muse all about it!

HSN Sephora Steals and Deals

Bit early for Steals and Deals but HSN has been featuring many Sephora brands at some great deals icon smile

The Muse has knocked up the best deals she noticed and slapped them into a nice little blog just for you! You can thank me and tell me how great I am later!

Make Up For Ever Star Powder Trio for $45 with Free Shipping
These normally run $18 each and that’d be $54 for three with the HSN option you’ll be getting three at a discount of $9 plus you have an option to pay for these with their flex pay plan. Flex pay basically cuts the cost in half and charges the payment to you this month and the following month! Kinda cool if you’re wanting to space your payments apart!

The Cargo Travel Collection Portable Makeup Box Set may be exclusive to HSN as I’ve never seen these items bundled together prior to this! This set is $29 with Free Shipping and includes 30 Pack a Day Lipgloss, 28 Color Cards, and Liquid Powder Foundation in a cute tin! These are great for traveling, quick makeup looks, and heck they’d make a great gift! Color Cards are $24 on Sephora and 30 Pack a Day Lipgloss is $12 so that’s a total of $36 for those two items if you purchase them separately. For an extra $4 you can get the HSN kit that includes the cute tin and Liquid Powder Foundation! I personally have the gloss packs and love these! I’ve never tried the color cards but this is a perfect excuse to do so at the price!

These are just some of the great deals I came across on HSN. I’m really liking that Sephora has teamed up with HSN for one main reason, that would be the freaking awesome Free Shipping option! I think it’s so great I can just log onto HSN and get Free Shipping on say a Dior Mascara or a Cargo Blush as compared to Sephora where I have to spend $75 before getting Free Shipping!

Do check out HSN for more interesting goodies!
