Meet my favorite budget friendly stocking stuffers for the Holiday:
If you read my review on Rosebud Salve you probably already hold the key to the secrets of Life, the Universe, and Everything. What you probably didn’t realize is that the second key to the universe is held within these little duo packages of joy!
I’ve been using Softlips since…hmm forevers. The Muse and her sister have happily purchased Softlips for a very long time, years and years. I can remember Softlips Lip Balm being one of my very first makeup purchases so indeed it’s been a while!
Honestly aside from Rosebud Salve I haven’t met a better option for keeping my lips happy during the cold weather skin! I’ve always had one of these little guys tucked into my purse for quick touch ups on the go. They glide on incredibly well and offer a nice seal of protection for cold, bitter New York weather plus they taste sooooo good! And let’s not forget they have SPF 20!
Softlips have introduced two new Limited Edition Duo Packs that contain two full size Softlips Balms. The first package holds Vanilla and Mint flavored balms which are great to use alone or layer them on top of each other for a Vanilla Mint flavored pout! The second package contains my personal favorite Cherry! It also contains Sugar Cookie which you can combine with Cherry to create Cherry Sugar Cookies! Yum! The Muse gets really excited about the little things in life.
Many of you have written me emails asking I feature some budget friendly options for cosmetics, gifts, etc..and I think that these Softlips Duo Packs are ideal for budget stocking stuffers! Each pack costs around $3.50-$3.99 USD which isn’t too bad a deal at all! They make very cute gift toppers as well to tape to the top of a bigger gift or to stick in a Holiday gift bag!
Yo can learn more about Softlips by visiting them at www.softlips.com!
I know quite a few folk were disappointed that the Harajuku Girl Solid Perfume Coffret Contest was not open to the US residents! Boo! Hiss!
But the good news is today I have two Limited Edition Packages of Softlips to give away to readers within the US and abroad! Simply comment below and I’ll be choosing two random readers to get one of the two packets I have! The contest begins today and ends on Friday so Good Luck!

Next week I’m bringing you a Week in Review of the brand new Harajuku Girl Fragrances. I covered these before but I wanted to do an individual review of each perfume because I got an overwhelming amount of e-mails asking how these are, if they are worth purchasing, key notes in the blends, etc…etc…Rather then answer all those e-mails I thought I’d just post a review a day of each fragrance giving you further details about each one, what my favorites are, what they smell like, etc….
In honor of my Week in Review I’ll be doing a little contest here on Musings! I know how much you adore my quirky contests where I do my geeky trivia but I’m going to keep this one rather clean and simple!
You have two chances to win one of two Harajuku Girl Solid Perfume Coffrets I have available. The coffrets have all five of the scents available in one cute gift box so you can try each of them out for yourself! Cutes right?!
You have two chances to win one of these two sets by leaving a comment below and if you’re already a subscriber to my feed you’ll have a second chance to win the set! Which means if you aren’t already subscribed you’ll want to subscribe so you can have your second chance to win the sets! You can subscribe by entering your email below:
The contest begins today and it will end next week Friday! Sadly, I can only open the contest to US residents right now! Sorry about that but I will have more contests shortly that will be open to non-US residents

Hey there, hi there!
I’m a little slow today getting reviews out but I wanted to do another quick give away in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I felt a bit pressured and rushed this month getting reviews out and I’ve been quite swamped with just about everything else so my blog hasn’t taken part in much of the goings on for Breast Cancer Awareness.
This doesn’t mean that I have forgotten, far from it. Although I haven’t personally been effected by this disease my heart still goes out to those who have had to personally deal with it or who have had friends or family members effected by it.
Allow me to direct you to a few members of The Beauty Blog Network who are currently working hard at raising money for this worthy cause. Please visit the Beauty Blog Network to find out more information and how you can make a personal donation to this cause.
After careful consideration I decided I wouldn’t be doing a chip in post this year for donations as I felt a tad bit too rushed to take it all on however I have made a personal donation. If you’d like to support the Muse’s charity of choice you can visit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and make your donation, small or large, every little bit takes us one step towards a cure.
You can also help with the cause by purchasing “Pink” themed products from such companies as Estee Lauder who donate partial or all proceeds of purchases to Cancer Research!
I’m having a small give away on this post as well. You can comment below to enter and I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month. If you win you’ll receive an Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Pin!
As always my contests are open to both US and International readers!
Good Luck and I’ll hope you’ll consider making a small donation to some charity this month to help make a path towards a brighter future for cancer research!
