Musings of the Day: Buyer’s Remorse

musingsofdayregret

It happens to the best of us, buyer’s remorse. We see that glittering, gleaming palette at our local makeup counter and we give into it’s evil temptation and purchase it!

We’re happy and excited as we leave the store but we regret the damn purchase when we get home and realize we SO didn’t need it!

Are you experiencing buyer’s remorse as of late?

Musings of the Day: Say It Loud, Say It Proud, I Buy Makeup Because of the Pretty Packaging!

packaging 1

Ribbons, pink packaging, silver paper, pretty iconic Japanese characters (Hello Kitty), pink, blue, floral motifs, butterflies……you name, I’ll buy it, if it’s pretty!

My best friend Jamie says I should be terribly, down right ashamed to purchase makeup, skincare, and beauty bits and bobs…just “because they are pretty…” She claims it’s wasteful, irresponsible, and just plain silly.

Do you think I should quit this friendship? Seems unhealthy right? Only kidding Jame I lurve you but you simply don’t understand at all!

Are you ashamed of purchasing makeup just because you like the pink box it comes in? Or the pretty blue bottle with the flowers around it? Or how about that adorable imprint of a butterfly in the blush you so dearly love? Does it shame you that sometimes you won’t even use these items because they are just too damn pretty?

Are you one of those types…

Musings of the Day: The Mailman Cometh!

mail man musings

I admit it, I’m a chronic online shopper. I actually LIKE shopping online more than I do in store. Books, groceries, DVD’s, and most important of all, makeup all wings it’s way to my front door in a big brown box labeled, “The Muse, Handle with Care”

There are so many shops I avoid because I don’t like pushy sales people, I’m talking to YOU Bath and Body Works. So I get my fix online where I don’t have to run away from a sales rep trying to spray me down with their latest fragrance all while tucking things into my cart I don’t want!

Today’s musings is all about that fantastic guy (or girl) who delivers your packages daily.

Do you stalk your mailman!?

Musings of the Day: Why MAC?

MAC Cosmetics Makeup 1

Good morning starshine!

Whatcha up to today everyone? We got snow. Oh joy! Snow and the commute to work is so fun. If you look you’ll find heavy sarcasm in there.

This morning someone asked me….”Why MAC?” And I thought wow what a perfect discussion topic to start the day. The simplicity and innocence of the question actually opens up a wide area for discussion. I mean asking Why MAC? is somewhat like asking about the evolution of man. For makeup junkies it comes down to a pretty simple yes or no answer but with plenty of a filler in between that yes or no you reply with.

So let’s muse it.

Why MAC?

What do you love MAC?

Why do you hate MAC?

Why do you buy MAC?
