Friends

Treats from Row

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! icon wink

Thanks Rows! I’m lucky to have such a great mate like you! You sincerely made my day with your sweetness!

Megan’s Cosmetic Tutorial Take 2

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 icon wink

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 icon wink 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!

Remember our little friend Megan?

Family2

No (For shame how can you forget this gorgeous child!)? Click here to refresh your memory!

Megan has made it quite big and is now appearing in all her glory on Kiss and Makeup’s website!

CLICK!

I’m positive she’s properly chuffed that she’s now not only exposed to everyone on my blog and her cousin’s but a majority of the UK as well!

A special thanks to Kiss and Makeup for making Megan a star I’m positive this will convince her to sign a contract with the Muse to do weekly tutorials!

Click over to Make Up & Stuff to visit with Row and I’m sure, if you’re lucky, you’ll see Megan around too!

The Boyfriend Who Depots! Jealous Much?

I was just discussing Row a few blog entries back and her rather sweet cousin who gifted us with an absolute fabulous video tutorial on cosmetic application (Lord knows how we got along without it!)!

Row has her own little beauty blog that I adore and I’m catching up on reading her fab blog today (I’m supposed to be working but reading beauty blogs is far more entertaining for me).

Anyway.

Moral of the story is at this point we should all be properly jealous of Row as she has a boyfriend who depots for her.

I personally don’t depot my shadows but the general idea of having a boyfriend to do it for me makes me 1. laugh and 2. say awwwwww true love!

Click here to see Row’s fabulously patient boyfriend depotting her NYX trios.

I’m wondering if she’s behind him cracking the whip or has drugged him up to do this!

LOL!

Sorry it was just too bloody good not to share love!

Start ‘em Young I Say!

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! icon wink
