My reader and friend Taryn got a beautiful haul of goodies from JPMon a few weeks ago! I actually blogged about it, you can click here to refresh your memory and read about her haul!
One of the items she was very excited about was the Fairy Drops Mascara. I got hyped over this as well after seeing the unique brush it came with and was eager to do my own order!
Before I could do an order Taryn was offering up her extra mascara to me! *blush* She sent it over with a TON of extra goodies that totally made me sniff! She was amazingly generous and sweet to put such a lovely package together for me and I wanted to show off some of what she sent me!
All my awesome goodies!
Tada Fairy Drops Mascara! This stuff is amazing! I used it this morning after opening the box! I’ll be doing a review shortly!
She also sent me a jar of Jelly Pong Pong Venus Pearls! Holy cow! These are amazing and I’ll be reviewing them shortly! I’ve been wanting to try them for ages and ages! Taryn totally read my mind that I wanted to give these a whirl I’ll be reviewing them shortly as these are a must try!
Ben Nye Lux Powder Sooooooooooooo shimmery and gorgeous and yum! Love it! Will be reviewing it too soon
AHHHHHH! Tons of new piggies to try! Yay!
Big thanks to Taryn! You totally made my day! I was sniffling while I opened it all! Thanks darling!
After getting back from the airport this morning, prior to heading to work, I hopped in the shower, got dressed, and sat down to sort mail!
Much to my surprise and delight a little parcel from England was in with the lot of boring bills, catalogs, and other garbage mail!
Hmmm what could this be!?
Tearing it open out poured a ton of great things! Lush soaps, Soap and Glory Lipgloss, Molton Brown Lotion, sweets, and much more!
Oh my it felt like Christmas!
I was particularly fixated on the rather large chunk of Lily Savon soap I was holding in my hand as I’ve been dying to try it and haven’t yet! It smelled so good that I held it to my nose during the duration of reading the card and letter tucked into the parcel!
Turns out my beautiful goodies was thanks to my most lovely mate Rowene.
So this is a HUGE thank you to a very gorgeous friend for making my day brighter when jet lag was setting in!
Your thoughtfulness totally made me happy!
I’m utterly chuffed to have great pieces of Lush Miranda and Lily Savon gracing my shower! I was so eager to use Lily Savon that I ended up washing my hands with it just so I could try it! I’m a big fan of Miranda and haven’t had any around in a good long while as mailorder UK has a knack for being out of stock everytime I order!
One item that happens to not be in the pic is the Boots Eye Gel she sent which is now totally rocking my world for depuffing my tired eyes today! I’ll be reviewing the lipgloss (been wanting to try Soap and Glory for AGESSSSSSSSSS), the soaps, and the eye gel very soon!
The card from Rows that’s gracing my fridge door! How cute!
The Curly Wurly soon disappeared after this pic! Both actually…and a little bit after that the Black Jack made an exit as well! My tummie is in heaven as I haven’t had a Curly Wurly in a good long while!
Sadly the sweets that the Muse sent to Row have been gobbled down by Row’s evil boyfriend!
Thanks Rows! I’m lucky to have such a great mate like you! You sincerely made my day with your sweetness!
The Muse’s little friend Megan is back and teaching us all about cosmetics! I want to adopt this child! She talks like a little English old lady! “Remember to smile!” I love her! Please let me have her! The Muse wants a army of little girl’s just like her to take over the cosmetic world!
Take a look:
How about those blending skills folks!? And the lipliner! Sheer perfection! Someone needs to remind Megan she’s gorgeous without the cosmetics
Click here to visit Megan and her cousin Rows at Mostly Make Up (Mind you Megs is the genius behind the entire blog! I’m kidding, I’m kidding!).
Note: Megan is only 7 and she’s not really doing up her makeup for a night on the town! She’s simply a very little girl enjoying her older cousin’s cosmetics and having a little bit of fun! No children were harmed in the making of this video and I promise Rows spoils her rotten and takes very good care of her from what I’ve seen So no worries that Megan is going wild applying goops of cosmetics and running around London Town with it on and no Rows does not hold a shot gun to Megan’s head while forcing her to depot eyeshadow she only does that with her boyfriend! Hehe…couldn’t resist!
One of the Muse’s readers and mates, Rows, has a fantastic youTube video on her blog. Go visit Row by clicking here.
This is Row’s 7 year old cousin giving us a make-up tutorial. I wonder where her influence (and obsession) with cosmetics comes from hmmmmm!
How much are you loving the way she says “blusher” all proper and ladylike! I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time! This little poppet is positively adorable and I’m positive I learned a tip or two about application! I wonder where she pops off to when she’s on the floor? Studying her notes mayhaps?
Let’s give her 10 years or less and I’m positive she’ll have her own blog!
Note: She didn’t say “Ummmmm” once I could definately learn something from her!
Mind you she’s putting the eyeliner on correctly and you’re probably the one doing it wrong!
You can read more about the top ten blogs by clicking here! I see Christine from Temptalia made the list, PJ from A Touch of Blusher, and Bjooti from Sweden plus 7 other great blogs! This is a great way to discover some new blogs you may not have read before!
I got a sickeningly large box from my mate that lives in Oxford today. Inside was enough crisps to last me for the next two years of my life and possibly beyond (I’m not a fan of crisps here in the US and a majority of my mates in England know how much I adore crisps their end of the pond thus whenever they send me a package it ends up loaded with bags of crisps), almost as many packages of digestives as crisps were also inside, a box of Roses, a box of Heroes, a ton of Hotel mini slabs, general Doctor Who themed bits and bobs, tons of Lush (Included the Muse’s beloved 17 Cherry Tree Lane) plus, here’s the best part, a HUGE amount of Pout, Pop, Pixi, and Boots!
We got some Pixi Palettes here, some Soap and Glory bits from Boots (been wanting to try it), a ton of Pout including blush (I’ve never tried any Pout Blush), many Pop bits I haven’t yet tried! I’ll be taking pics and doing reviews shortly
So I guess this basically means I’ll be doing two things this Holiday: 1. Getting fat off British Chocolate, Biscuits, and Crisps and 2. Giving myself a Make Over using all this product!
Anyone wanna come over?
Much love to my mate Shazza for sending me such a freaking array of awesomeness and spoiling me rotten!
