Musings of the Day

Come Out of Lurkdom, Have a Cuppa, and Share Some Memories: How Long Have You Been Reading Musings?

MusingsofaMuse 2008

I was discussing my site with a friend this morning and got to reminiscing about how much it has grown in the last few years.

I had a few babbles and a blog of sorts on mySpace but later on moved to Blogger and migrated to to my own server running the WordPress software about two years ago. I started the site on a pure whim as it was kinda me talking to myself about my latest hauls and purchases but my audience somehow grew and today I have over 300,000 people from around the world stopping by to say hey and nearly 1 million page views that those people are reading every month.

Above is one of my templates from way back in 2008 ha not so glamorous I fear.

I’m curious how long have you been reading here?

Since the beginner? A year? two?

Do share!

And for the lurkers out there, I welcome you to step in and have a little chat with me today and all the other readers that comment daily! De-lurk! icon smile

I look forward to hearing from everyone today!

TGIF!

Musings of the Day: Do You Wish You Were A Makeup Minimalist?

Do you sometimes wish you were a minimal or non makeup type of girl? I have friends who have one lipstick, one lipgloss, some powder, and an eyeshadow.

Seriously, that’s all.

Do you sometimes wish you were that girl?

Musings of the Day: Gifted with Makeup

Musings of the Day Gifts

Damn that was fast. The wrapping paper has been cleaned up, cookie crumbs are laying around, and the Christmas Tree in your living room is starting to suffocate you and you’re wanting to stuff it back into storage.

Yes, that went very fast indeed.

So who gifted you with makeup this year? And what did they gift you with?

Any good hauls?

Musings of the Day: The “I’m too sick for makeup!” Edition

Sick

I don’t think there’s anything more annoying than sneezing when I have a lip full of gloss on. OMG so annoying. Lipstick, lipgloss, and a big old sneeze do not go together, it’s just messy to say the least and I end up having to re-do my entire lip look if I sneeze.

Not cool.

So Musings of the Day….

Do you wear makeup when you have a cold? Or even the flu? Some of us do not have the novelty of sitting home on the days we don’t feel well and we have to drag our stuffy noses to work with us…..so do you wear makeup on those days?

Musings of the Day: Do you like Beauty Brand Blogs?

Beauty brand

I read alot of various beauty sites, forums, and blogs and I was curious what do you think of Beauty Brand Blogs? You know your favorite beauty brand that creates a blog and posts to it, that type of thing. Sephora has one, Benefit, The Body Shop, Lancome, etc…..

Brands have really embraced social media in a major way lately. Urban Decay is guilty of being thee most amazingly outgoing brand ever on Twitter in my opinion. They are dedicated to their fans and communicate with them on Twitter like no one’s biz. Facebook is another popular media option for brands as well.

But what happens when brands venture into the world of beauty blogging?

Do you like Beauty Brand Blogs?

Not so much?

Why or why not?
