Morning…errr…it’s afternoon already isn’t it? Happy Monday! Quickie post telling you that Bath and Body Works is offering 20% Off your total plus guaranteed Christmas delivery so if you’re doing any last minute shopping or just want to score a little something for yourself now would be a great time to do so at a discount!
How’s everyone’s Monday going? I just realized that I somehow let Christmas get away from me this year! 10 days left and aside from having my tree and decorations done super, super early everything else is piling up waiting to be done!
Oh the stress! I know I’ve had an epic fail this year in regards to gift idea posts and such! Sorry about that guys! Life has a way of catching up with me and sometimes it’s not always Musings times!
I’ll be back on track soon! Just hang tight!
Love you all and hope your heart is filled with the season!
You were probably privy to this contest last Friday as it got posted back then! I had a problem with the applet I was using for the contest so I had to remove it temporarily!
But…the good news……it’s back and hopefully working hehe!
What is it?
It’s a bottle of Vera Wang Look Parfum Spray which the Muse recently reviewed….exciting right? Even more exciting…..it’s signed by Vera Wang herself! Hyper yet?
Enter for your chance to win Vera Wang Look Parfum signed by Vera herself by submitting your name and e-mail address below! The contest starts today and ends next Friday at 10 pm! The contest is open to US and Worldwide readers!
Am I the only one that associates mint with the Holidays? I dunno what it is but I always love minty fresh scents when Christmas comes to town!
Maybe it’s the candy canes or the cold winter air that gets me all hyped over mint? Who knows!
How about…chocolate and mint? Now that’s a marriage most divine! Since the Muse doesn’t mind in the least smelling edible she finds that Demeter Pick Me Up Spray in Junior Mints does the trick to get her in a festive mood! A bit of creamy mint and a whole lot of chocolaty goodness combined creates a cooling, minty fragrance that’s dominated with deep notes of chocolate….indeed it smells good enough to eat!
You may very well find the idea of wanting to smell like mint and chocolate quite obscure but the Muse thinks it fits her personality perfect and makes for some rather quirky conversation of “Wow, what are you wearing!?”
Head over to www.demeterfragrance.com to check out Junior Mints! And do have a look at the new Hershey Collection and tons of gift sets available for the upcoming holidays!
What’s are some weird blends you like?
What are some that remind you of the holiday season?

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!
