Dita Von Teese for Frederick’s of Hollywood

I admit that I have a girl crush on Dita Von Teese. I can’t help myself! She’s gorgeous and perfect and I wish I was lucky enough to have won the same genetic lottery this girl did!

Dita is modeling the Frederick’s of Hollywood Holiday lineup and I’m having quite fun looking through the images on the site and being all star struck by the pretty pictures! I’m a huge fan and collector of pin-up art and I’m loving some of the images they have on the site!

Do have a visit and see for yourself what all my excitement is about!

And after that why not visit with Christine at Temptalia and read her interview (and listen to her podcast) with thee gorgeous Dita Von Teese, herself!

Lucky Christine! Count the Muse green with envy!


Jemma Kidd’s Jeweled Holiday Look

Neiman Marcus has this interesting little collection available from Jemma Kidd! I do love the look of the model but the price tag of $36 per bot of glitter/cream shadow is downright obscene!

However, the good news is, that you can do pretty much the same thing using MAC Shadesticks, Paintpots, and some Pigment for a fraction of the cost!

But like I said I really dig the “Jeweled Holiday Look”!

Nordstrom Exclusive: MAC Keepsake

A most gorgeous friend and reader of Musings of a Muse has pictures up of her latest haul!

Check out Stephanie’s blog by clicking here to view her haul!

She has up pictures from the Nordstrom MAC Exclusive that I didn’t get! I have Shimmertime pigment and the Softsparkle Pencil already which was why I didn’t purchase this set but now seeing Steph’s pictures I’m wanting this set!

You can also see the rest of her Holiday haul :)

Good purchases Steph! Thanks for sharing with us and the Muse can’t be held responsible if a ton of people want to kidnap Daisy after seeing her on your blog 😉


The Muse Takes on Specktra

You may recall that I had mentioned I was expanding my horizons in a previous post!

And now would be a good time to tell you exactly how I plan to do so 😉

My love affair with MAC began not so long ago by visiting a forum entitled Specktra. Now you may or may not know of Specktra and here in lays my story with Specktra :)

Specktra is the type of community that plenty of hard work, passion, and love goes into! You can tell by visiting Specktra how much hard work goes into it! It’s an utter and complete encyclopedia for all good things MAC. Truly if you can’t find what you seek on Specktra you won’t find it anywhere else on the Internet.

I’ve been a proud member of Specktra for quite a while and I use it for all good things MAC. Now Specktra isn’t completely broken out of it’s MAC mold and that’s something I love about it because it’s my #1 resource for MAC information!

The Muse has the responsibility of bringing all the latest and greatest non MAC news to Specktra’s Blog.

This is thee most exciting news for the Muse! Writing for a blog that I admire so much is truly something I am very excited about!

So, once a week, you’ll see the Muse making a little guest appearance on Specktra blog featuring some new cosmetic find =-)

Many of you are privy already to huge stash of cosmetic must haves and now is my chance to share the information further with members and readers of Specktra!

I hope you’ll visit with me on Specktra Blog!

And of course this new venture does not hinder Musings of a Muse in anyway! The Muse’s blog will chug along as it always does!

I hope you’re excited about this as I am!


The Muse Expands Her Horizons

A most lovely union is about to occur 😉

And the Muse is going to spread her wings and expand her horizons 😉

Stay tuned for details!

I’m excited to tell you ALL about it when it’s ready to launch!
