Behind the Candelabra So Damn Fabulous

Anyone watch Behind the Candelabra? Seriously so freaking fabulous. I watched it with my best friend Jai and his boyfriend Mattie and we seriously had a complete melt down while watching it. There were parts in there you just couldn’t help burst out laughing at. Rob Lowe? OMG! Funny!

Dustin Hunter reminded me how great it was with his hysterical video on youTube and I had to share!

It’s another weekend my dears!

And a hot one at that.

I’m away for the weekend so can’t wait to get out of here today. I’m behind on comments sorry! Been working out kinks on Musings. The maintenance on this site boggles my mind sometimes icon sad And with the latest Google Penguin update it seems to early to tell if I was on its radar! Sure hope not! Apparently, if you’re a webmaster or just a super search guru, site: is working again. Thank god for small favors. Although Webmaster Tools seems to be wacked out lately…

Yeah most people don’t care about that portion of beauty blogging icon smile

What’s new with you this week?

I feel behind talking to you all!

I wish you a very happy weekend!

More reviews are scheduled throughout the day but I may be slow replying if you have a comment or two as I’m working on broken links behind the scenes here but will do my best to say hey here and there because anything to get me AWAY from this task!

Talk soon!

The Face Chart by Dustin Hunter

When my parents asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up at the age of five I said, “An artist”….when they asked me again when I was eight the reply was the same….and this continued for most of my youth.

Unfortunately, outside of stick figures, I cannot draw, paint, etc…I have virtually no artistic talents. Nada…nothing…it’s kinda hard being an artist when you can’t get past those blasted stick figures.

But a rare few of us have that special talent, one of those people happens to be Dustin Hunter. I share a love of makeup and beauty (as well as 80’s soapy mini series) with Dustin but NONE of his talent.

He created the Face Chart to brush up your artistic talents for not only pros but for everyone.

The Face Chart are simply blank face sheets which you can use to apply makeup to aiding you in creating new looks or even for practicing on.

Pros can use these as guides in a runway show, stage, or film productions or to practice their techniques. Everyone else, like me, can use them as to polish up their skills or create a new look on paper prior to trying it out on your own face! It’s a great way to get in some practice for makeup application and make just make you into the artist you aren’t!

They are available in a 25 or 100 pack at www.thefacechart.com

And hey, I probably need them if it improves my makeup skills to the point I’m as good as application as Dustin is.

Death by Decadence A Meg Martin Mystery

It’s not makeup related…

But I have some exciting news to share. A friend of mine has e-published her first novel on Amazon.com! She’s terribly excited about it and I’m excited for her.

If you have a second today you might want to check her out. Plus hey, she mentions MusingsofaMuse.com in her novel, hello, I’m so famous now, I’m in a novel!

I haven’t read it yet but if you do I’d love to hear your thoughts and I’m sure she should would too!

Dear friends,

My holiday wish for you is that you have someone special to spend it with be it your friends, your husband, family, your puppy, your sister, etc….the Holiday is a great time for good food, lovely gifts, and other goodies but the most important part of it all is sharing it with your loved one(s).

Thank you for making everyday on Musings a good day. I’m always utterly humbled that I’m not talking to myself around here but have a ton of very lovely people who read what I say daily. Thanks for joining me in my makeup world and life, I sincerely couldn’t do it with out all of you to inspire and motivate me.

I wish you and yours the Happiest, Warmest, Brightest Holiday Season full of adventures through time and space (*wink*)! I hope you are surrounded by wonderful people to share it with, that Santa is extra good to you, and you have a successful, wonderful New Year ahead!

Barkzilla’s Bocce Biscuits Giveaway

Have you met Barkzilla?

Barkzilla is a site dedicated to the fashionable, sophisticated city dog and run by my friend Sam but honestly, it’s probably dictated and run by Paddy while Sam runs around as assistant to this fabulous little pup.

Paddy’s not so much a diva that she doesn’t share with other dogs (I wish I can say the same about my dogs, they are greedy little buggers and aren’t likely to share their treats) so Barkzilla is having a giveaway that features some delicious Bocce Biscuits!

Made from wholesome, fresh, human-grade ingredients Barkzilla is giving you a chance to win two bags for your pup!

Enter to win one bag of each of the following biscuits:

  • Holiday Feast biscuits is made with slowly roasted hormone-free turkey, organic pumpkin and cranberries.
  • Truffle Mac & Cheese these biscuits are seasoned with truffle oil (seriously? My dog will be eating better than I do dude), these include skim mozzarella and lean turkey bacon.

I hope you’ll show Paddy and Sam a little love and head over to Barkzilla and enter to win!
