Yesterday I was busy procrastinating and tweeting happily away with one of my lovely readers and we got to discussing Antique Bakery. Antique Bakery is a popular Japanese manga about four men that run a bakery/pastry shop. The story has since been translated into English and is available within the US under the same title. It’s been misconceived that Antique Bakery is a yaoi manga and it drives me batty whenever I hear this because it’s sincerely not yaoi in it’s true format. In November Antique Bakery was released as a live action film which the Muse is quite excited about as Kim Jae Wook is in it!
The moral of my rather long story is that cute bish?nen
boys and cake are truly a marriage most divine! After discussing Antique Bakery I got home late last night and I remembered my discussion and I started rummaging around in my review box. Inside I finally located what I was looking for…and sadly no it wasn’t Kim Jae Wook
but it was the next best thing (the Muse plans on running away to Korea and marrying Kim Jae Wook
and having 2.5 kids but that’s a story for another day!)! A cupcake!
Indeed I was feeling inspired to review cupcakes after discussing Antique Bakery! Ummm Muse why do you have cupcakes in your review box?
Well this cupcake actually isn’t edible but more of the bath and body variety! I recently came across Delish Gourment Bath Bakery Bubble Bath Cupcakes on the Bath and Body Works site. After cruising around BBW I decided to Google up Delish and see what the story was!
Glad I did because I came across their rather awesome website which has a pretty extensive array of awesome bath bombs shaped like evil little cuppycakes that are too tempting for mere words! I actually have three of Delish’s Gourment Bath Bakery Bubble Bath Cupcakes to review for you! Yay exciting!
Since I was in the mood for a warm bath last night I decided to slip a Delish Candy Cane Kisses into my bath tub! Although these promise to sud up they actually don’t create masses of bubbles but more of a moisturizing foam. They fizz, pop, and sizzle around your tub while lightly scenting the water with a sweet peppermint fragrance. One of the things that absolutely thrilled me to bits was the fact that it turned my bath water into a ridiculously bright green shade! I felt like a little kid splashing around in all that green water! I was slightly worried all the dye would create a major ring around my tub but it washed away simply and easily. Unlike Lush Bath Bombs these are very subtle in their scent and aren’t overpowering. They also last alot longer and fizz for a good 15-20 minutes before disappearing completely where as Lush Bath Bombs fizz for about 1-2 minutes. It’s quite nice to have such a long lasting fizzing treatment in the tub! If you want you can crack them up prior to placing them in the water but I just sunk mine in whole and watched it twirling around as it fizzed. They are pretty big so if you’re want to cheap it up a bit you can probably get two baths out of one cupcake!
As I mentioned I tried Candy Cane Kisses last night and it’s a very soft, sweet peppermint scent with touches of vanilla and cake! I also have Sugar Plum Fairy which is a warm spicy scent with touches of cake and Birthday Cake which smells exactly like yellow vanilla cake! Mmmm! Each “cupcake” is decorated with icing, sprinkles, and bright colors eluding to it’s scent! For example my Candy Cane Kisses had white frosting, green “cake”, and cute red candy cane sprinkles! Each cupcake is themed in color and design to compliment it’s scent.
My green bath water hehe!
I got a real kick out of these and thought they’d make lovely stocking stuffers or gifts for the Holidays plus the price isn’t at all bad! Bath and Body Works was offering a few separate sets and single cupcakes but now only has a duo available. I guess they sold out quickly!
The good news is you can still grab them directly from the Delish Gourmet Bakery website by visiting www.delishbath.com
Each large cupcake is $6 USD (about the size of my fist) and each mini cupcake is $3 USD. I haven’t tried the mini cupcakes so I can’t attest for their size however the large cupcakes are quite large and well worth the $6! The cupcakes are available in a slew of “flavors” like Very Berry and Hot Fudge Sundae, each decorated and looking like a real cupcake!
You can purchase Delish Gourment Bakery goodies online of course but they also have “bakeries” located in a few locations around the US. Check out this page for further details about where you can locate a cuppycake or two!
The Muse can’t help but Muse Approve these for purchase! She loves the cute details on each cupcake, the inexpensive price tag, the funny little novelty of a cupcake bath bomb, and of course she thinks they’ll make an awesome little gift for friends or family!
All the fun of a cupcake without the calories? Likey! Only problem is I have to keep reminding myself I can’t eat these! Sometimes looking at ‘em makes me hungry!

Guys, guys, guys! Look!
Tis the Harajuku Lovers Thanksgiving Day Float that will be making a special appearance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The Muse is quite excited about this! She can’t help herself she loves the idea of a Harajuku Lovers Float…
Sadly, I’ll won’t be in the city for Thanksgiving Day this year so the Muse will miss the awesome float but no worries I’ll be glued to the tube watching the parade with my family and friends on the big day!
If you’re in New York or will be visiting New York for the parade you can head over to Columbus Circle (west side of the street; Broadway between 38th and 58th Street and 34th Street, the south side of the street b ween Broadway and 7th Avenue) to catch your glimpse of the Harajuku Lovers Thanksgiving Day Float! This will be between 9am and 12pm on Thanksgiving Day!
The float is inspired by the downtown Harajuku area in Tokyo and will feature multi-levels with glass platforms that show the lights of Tokyo in full effect! On board will be the balloonhead alter agos of Love, Lil Angel, Music, Baby, and G and also taking the trip through Manhattan will be the real Love, Angel, Music and Baby!
In addition to seeing the float, there will also be team members handing out samples of the fragrances and cards for a special gift with purchase! If you’re going to be there you better take pictures for the Muse! She wants to see it up close and personal!
Check out more images of the float by checking out the official Harajuku Lovers Flickr feed! For further info about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade you can click here!

Guys! It’s like freaking 30 degrees outside!
Um hello holy coldness Batman!
I was bred, born, and raised in New York and I have to say the last few years have been thee most excellent roller coaster weather wise! I swear you never know what you’ll get next! Weather is like a box of chocolates here in our little city!
Al Gore told me it’s Global Warming but I don’t believe him because he also said he created the Internet!
Honestly, I remember when Fall was Fall and we had nice brisk weather that you needed a sweater for or a hoodie! Now a days it’s somewhat like getting ready to go deep sea diving as you need a snow suit and a pile of warm clothes to face the freezing cold outside!
The weather may be frightful outside but I can re-live the warmth of Summer by indulging in Demeter Swimming Pool Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray! This soft, aquatic scent carries a fresh ozone base that’s reminiscent of a fresh laundered towel! Demeter Swimming Pool allows me to savor the warm weather anywhere, anytime (even in 30 degree weather) while I reminisce about the memory of a swim in a cool pool on a hot, humid day!
I hosed myself down with Demeter Swimming Pool this morning, stepped outside, closed my eyes, and pictured the warm weather.
Guess what happened?
I still froze my bloody arse off! But at least I smelled aquatic, fresh, and lovely! Thanks Demeter!
The Muse suggests checking some out! Maybe it’ll keep you warm this Winter!

The little things totally get the Muse raved up! Today when she seen Got 2B Cosmic Shimmering Serum a hint of excitement filled the air.
I normally don’t do hair product posts but I could not resist something that had Cosmic and Shimmering in the title! For shame you know the Muse loves her sparkly, shimmery bits and bobs!
So what is it?
A shimmering hair serum to tame frizz and wild curls while adding a touch of shimmering silver to tresses! Um hello Holiday hair beauty budget? Here we come! I’m totally bummed because when I took a picture with this in my hair it sadly does not show up well but rest assured the Muse took swatchies for you! Excited?
The serum is infused with shimmering mic minerals to provide a hint of shimmer to your hair while taming frizz and holding hair in place! It smells sweet and melon like too so it’ll lend a bit of fragrance to your hair as well! No worries it won’t create a dipped in glitter effect out of your hair, it simply gives a tiny bit of silver sparkle that’s subtle and quite lovely to finish up your holiday look! Honestly, I was wishing they’d make this in gold too!
As far as this Muse is concerned Got 2B Cosmic Shimmering Serum is budget friendly at a $4.99 USD price tag and totally Muse Approved for purchase for it (and the awesome shimmers!)!
I loved this one!
Tames the crazy of my curls, smells sweet, plus gives shimmer? Honestly what’s not to like here?
Muse Approved for purchase all the way!
Visit www.got2b.com for further info or nab yourself a bottle on Drugstore.com for $5.99 USD!
