Cynthia Rowley for Avon: Flower and Petal Fragrances

Cynthia Rowley has done two exclusive fragrances for Avon recently! One is entitled Flower and the other is called Petal.

From what I understand Flower is a Woman’s Parfum while the Petal is an Eau de Toilette for younger girls. I was generally curious about these as I had such a raving review for the Cynthia Rowley for Avon Cosmetic Collection that was released in the Fall.

I ended up purchasing both on E-bay for a ridiculously, obscenely low cost. Flower retails for $30 USD on the Avon site and Petal is $15 USD. I paid about $25 USD for both on E-bay including shipping. Can’t go wrong for the price. The fact that Petal is made for younger girl’s did not really sway me from wanting it!

Both are floral blends which isn’t something I typical like but one of the key notes in the blend is Lily of the Valley and I adore the scent of Lilies so this might be right up my alley!

I’ll be reviewing these for you as soon as they arrive!

US Drugstore Steals and Deals

A few readers had expressed absolute delight and curiosity when I had posted a few of the sale pages from various drugstores here in the US a few weeks ago!

So I thought I’d do so again! Bit boring if you live in the US and are privy to this stuff all the time but I think it’s a bit fun for folks living in Europe, Asia, Etc…!

Soooooooo enjoy!

The following are taken from various sale pamphlets from CVS, Walgreens, Etc…!

Something that might particularly interest international readers is the money back guarantee on cosmetics!

Friday Night with Doctor Who

I have to stay home and stop my entire life on Friday night as the good Doctor is appearing on my telly screen April 18th! Cancel everything! Clear my schedule!

Just a friendly non cosmetic note from the Muse that Doctor Who, Season 4, returns on the Sci/Fi Channel Friday night (I’m gasping for breath in excitement)!

Set your Tivos!

Does it gives you tingles when he says, “I’m the Doctor, I’m a Timelord!” or is it only me?

ya ya I know how annoying Catherine Tate is but what can you do!

Remind yourself how funny she can be by watching this clip:

It’s so difficult to choose who wins for most annoying…Catherine..Kylie..Catherine…Kylie…DO NOT WANT! Can it be Rose time again? Billie where iz you the Muse misses you! Put me out of my bloody misery pleaze! I’d settle for Sarah Jane Smith in her 80′s at this point!

If you’re not feeling David you can always take a blast through the past with the Muse’s very favorite Doctor, the one, the only Mr Tom Baker!

No one can replace the quirk that Tom Baker brought to the Doctor!

The hardest regeneration I went through! *sniff*

The Doctor is, was, and always will be Muse Approved!

Sorry sometimes you have to suffer through some of these Non Cosmetic, Geeky Bits that the Muse loves so much now back to our regularly scheduled Cosmetic Babblings…….

MAC Pro in Soho

in MAC

logo

UPDATE: Sadly, they do not ship internationally! I’m so sorry guys icon sad

Hey guys!

I think I was a bit vague yesterday! Sorry about that.

My original post about MAC DressCamp and ordering it have a confused a few folk!

Here’s the info:

MAC Pro in Soho is where you can get this Collection icon smile If you’re outside of New York and within the US call the following number: 212-334-4641 to place your order! The charge per an order for shipping within the US is $7 USD so take advantage maybe and order items and colors you can only get within a MAC Pro Store! Believe me quite a few items and colors are exclusive to Pro Shops and well worth having a look at! Click here to visit the Pro Official Website (Take note of how many pigment colors they have in comparison to what you’d see at your normal counter or regular free standing store! Nice selection right?!).

If you’re in Canada, Europe, Asia, Etc…you can call but I really have no idea if they ship outside the US! I’m headed out the door to work so I’ll call when I get to my office and do an updated post about whether they ship worldwide or not!

They open at 9 AM I believe so call first thing in the AM!

Click here to visit with the beautiful Janice at Specktra Blog for updates on which locations have the collection! Again, the collection is not available in freestanding stores or counters just Pro shops! You can’t call Pro directly either to order you must call a freestanding MAC Pro Store. A list of the very few MAC Pro Stores is available from Specktra.

Good Luck scoring this beautiful and coveted collection!

Do comment and let me know if you get lucky today! I’d like to know all my readers are safe and sound and have the pretty MAC in their possessions hehe!
