Pieces of Life: The Twilight DVD Edition

Hello kids.

Welcome to Pieces of Life: The Twilight DVD Edition.

Did I totally hear some of you start to scream and cry? I did right? The Muse is fond of musing about our friend Edward so of course she had to muse a little about the release of Twilight on DVD today and alert you all that it’s coming to a DVD near you on March 21st!

Get our your Eau de Edward and your Mrs Cullen T-Shirts and brace yourself for a re-watch of Twilight in the comfort of your own home.

The Muse happens to be a purist and she will say, possibly to your horror, that I hated the movie with a passion. Robert Pattinson? Well hello gorgeous I’d do you (Side Note: I wasn’t thinking that after I heard he hadn’t washed his hair in a few weeks ewww)! But honestly, let’s be honest ok? Honestly, aside from the one scene with saliva exchange between Robert and Kristen there was absolutely none of the chemistry, none of the passion, none of the emotion that the books detailed so beautifully. I can debate and rant this bloody topic all day with you but I shall say no more.

The important moral of this story is Twilight is available on DVD as of March 21st and of course yours truly will be buying it and rewatching it just in case it was good…one never knows as the Muse seen it on the first day it released and sat between many a screaming and squealing teenage girl..wait..that was my mate Jai who was squealing sorry about that…who knows maybe it was good and all the squealing took away from award winning performances…but I’m not counting on it!

Go ahead…

Rave it or rant it!

My comment box is your comment box!

PS the Muse is, as always, a Team Edward player! Go Team Edward!

Hello Kitty Diamonique @ QVC

How very un-cosmetic of the Muse but today she’s highly interested in scoring some Hello Kitty Diamonique @ QVC! I have a serious addiction to collecting Hello Kitty themed jewelry…necklaces, earrings, watches, you name it the Muse probably owns it with Hello Kitty’s mug on it!

hkhkhl

At one time it was pretty difficult to get nice jewelry featuring Hello Kitty within the US so I was an offshore collector nabbing things from different parts of Asia, particularly Japan.

It’s gotten considerably less harder to get some great themed products here in the US and even Sanrio has finally expanded it’s line to include some fairly nice Hello Kitty jewelry items!

When I heard QVC was doing a presentation of Hello Kitty Jewelry, well, you can imagine how excited I was!

Check out why below!

Jumping on the coat tails of MAC’s Hello Kitty release I’m sure it’ll be a Spring of Hello Kitty releases and QVC just happens to have a line up of Hello Kitty items from it’s popular “Diamonique ” line.

Nothing got up and grabbed me after I looked through some of the collection but I did end up nailing the QVC “Today’s Special” and a few other bits and bobs I’ll share with you in a sec.

The today’s special is a Hello Kitty Zodiac Pendant for $86 USD and some change. I thought it was darling so I picked it up in my sign. It’s available in all the zodiac signs and comes with a chain so I thought it was well worth the price.

I also snagged the Hello Kitty Diamonique High Polished “Kitty ID Tag” Pendant for $56 bucks which also includes the a chain. I thought this was a bit different from other pieces I collected and quite cute.

And finally I got the Hello Kitty Diamonique Sterling Princess Kitty Pendant which was $96. This was quite a unique piece as well and I thought the price wasn’t bad considering it comes with the chain as well.

They had some super cute items and I think I nabbed the most interesting and unique in the collection. It’s worth checking out if you’re a big Hello Kitty Fan!

You can check the entire collection at Hello Kitty Diamonique.

I guess Hello Kitty will be ruling the Spring scene! I look forward to see what else popped theme wit her Hello Kittyiness!

Pieces of Life: The Gossip Girl Edition

I only got the chance to watch the first five minutes of Gossip Girl this week since the Muse has been very, very, very, alot busy but did you check out who’s starring as Chuck Bass’s uncle?

musescrush

Well, hello gorgeous!

Muse, who is this love muffin you speak of?

Tis my future husband Desmond Harrington of course!

Desmond played Joey Quinn in this season of Dexter and did a brilliant job of it might I add. Now the Muse normally doesn’t fall for manly men such as Desmond but she must say that his accent sends shivers down her little spine. Desmond was born in Georgia but grew up in the Bronx and that boy has the accent to prove it. Loves it! I don’t think I’ve seen him in a role where he’s fully dropped his accent so it’s always rather fetching to watch him work. Growing up in New York I have a deal for the accents around these parts…hells you should hear my friend Marc his accent is harder and rougher than Desmond’s!

And hello now he’s playing Chuck’s uncle on Gossip Girl? The Muse is totally thrilled. Holy Hotness Batman! I sure hope that they keep him on Dexter next season as well because although he wasn’t cast in the most brilliant light the Muse just enjoys the extra eye candy on the show! Yums! I think they’ll set him up with Lily on Gossip Girl but from what I have seen…was he flirting with Blair in that first scene? This could get dangerous!

Desmond is Muse Approved by all means possible teehee!

Love him?

Tell me!
