Say Hello to my wake me up before I go, go fragrance!
Oh my god can I tell you my sister and I missed the boat with George Michael! We so didn’t know he was gay until around 2000…what the hell? I attract gay men like a magnet why didn’t I know about this? I think it was that Father Figure video that fooled us! All that sex couldn’t be acted! Turns out it could be….darn….I can’t lie and say we weren’t disappointed (this was at the point where George Michael was hot sex on wheels of course) however it does open a new door for me as now I so want to be BFF’s with George Michael! I know he’d just love my taste in fragrance…and cosmetics….and we could wear each others fabulous clothes, actually I could wear his fabulous clothes…I’m unsure if my closet holds anything fabulous….
I was about to tell you all about my new love, Prescriptives Calyx! Oh my god such a refreshing, tart, gorgeous wake me up scent! I haven’t really been in touch with Prescriptives fragrances since Flirt! Remember Flirt? It was my favorite perfume evers way back in the day but it can easily be replaced by Prescriptives Calyx…way betters people!
The exhilarating tangy, tartness of Calyx totally appeals and is exactly what I’ve been searching for in a fragrance forever. Something fun, upbeat, really refreshing, with just the right amount of pop! The notes include a blend of grapefruit (very dominant note), mandarin, tropical passion fruits, mango, papaya, and guave. Fruitylicious! I think the grapefruit successfully dominates the other notes in the blend to create a really refreshing fragrance that has a huge twang to it! Other notes include florals such as rose, lily, jasmin, and marigold and base notes of oakmoss, sandalwood, and vertiver. Personally I get a dominant note of grapefruit with a hints of lily and a shot of vetiver which makes this very tart.
I simply love this one and can’t say enough good things about it! I highly recommend trying it out for yourself if you like tart, fruity blends with a tiny hint of floral. Sounds weird combining lily with grapefruit but I promise it creates an interesting blend that’s sure to please!
I’m telling you about Prescriptives Calyx today because Prescriptives currently has some great gifts available and Calyx happens to make a guest starring appearance in one of the gifts being offered!
The Prescriptives Calyx Collection is $47.50 USD and includes the following:
Full Size Calyx
Travel Size Calyx Body Lotion
Travel Siz Calyx Purse Spray
and a silver Perscriptives bag with all of your Calyx goodies tucked inside!
The set is available for a limited time so you might want to grab it for yourself or as a gift while the getting is good as I’m sure it won’t be around after the Holidays! I’m thinking of grabbing one for my friend Jenn since we are scent twins! Snag yours by visiting the Prescriptives website!
This one is very Muse Approved! I think you’ll love it if you’re seeking out that wake me up before you go, go blend! And I promise George would so love it!
That wavy, mullet really did it for me 20 year’s ago!

Last month I went into my closet and realized I was down to my last bottle of Lush Comforter Shower Gel! Oh woe is me!
*sniffle* The last of Comforter Shower Gel!
T’was a sad day indeed! Instead of using it I tucked it back into my closet and decided I’d save it for a special occasion. I resisted as long as I could and finally I tucked into the bottle and as of last week it’s almost completely gone. This week I was planning a funeral for my last bottle when I realized that, gasp, to my shock and surprised that Lush US was offering Comforter Shower Gel! I think I heard the angels sing! This truly was wonderful news!
This is the first time Lush Comforter Shower Gel is available in the US! It’s original release was about a year and a half ago as a special LE from Lush Germany. Now this was indeed a special time as not even Lush UK had this available which is the source for all LE products from Lush! The Muse was lucky enough to nab six bottles of Lush Comforter Shower Gel thanks to her x-boyfriend’s sister, Leeza who was attending classes in Germany at the time! Yay!
No idea what the hell this says but I promise it’s good stuff inside!
I’m actually quite excited about this release as I recently got my Lush UK Perfume Party order which had my Lush Comforter Body Lotion and Comforter Perfume (review coming soon!) inside so now I can layer with shower gel, lotion, and perfume! Life couldn’t be better!
The moral of today’s story is you should be heading to Lush as soon as humanly possible and snatch up as many bottles as your cart can hold because a shower without Comforter in it is a sad shower indeed!
Be it bubble bar, lotion, perfume, or shower gel, Lush Comforter is always Muse Approved for Purchase! Click to start shopping for your Comforter!
Love the unusual scent of Comforter?
Tell the Muse!

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!
