Musings of the Day: Running on Empty….!

IMG 0995

I get terribly excited when I finish something. Being a beauty junkie you probably realize how challenging it is to hit pan on an eyeshadow or complete a shower gel or just generally use something up.

When it does happen I feel like throwing a party or at the least having someone pat me on the back and congratulate me for my hard work.

Here’s some products I’ve completely used up recently.

Sephora 3 Day Shipping Fabulous for Some, Bogus for Others

Sephora Shipping

I hear a ton of people complain about the ship time with Sephora if they live on the West Coast but personally, I never had an issue.

It takes me about five days total to get my order. So if I order on Monday, it typically arrives by Thursday or Friday.

This is part of the reason that 3 Day Shipping is so bogus…!

If you order Monday it ships Tuesday and arrives by Friday. Big deal that’s how it was for me before anyway!

I guess some folks might think this is fabulous but if you live on the East Coast or just never had any issues with the regular Free Shipping Sephora offered you might feel this is completely a waste.

Now if I ordered on a Monday and it arrived on a Wednesday, that, would truly be cool.

Is Sephora’s 3 Day Shipping deal fabulous for you?

Or just bogus? To me it feels more like five days than three!

Do share!

Musings of a Muse: Has Your Skincare Regime Changed with Age?

(This photo is over ten years old shhhh don’t tell anyone k?)

I never thought I’d run into the day when I noticed myself obsessing over anti-aging skincare. It’s just not something you think of in your early teen years or early twenties.

I think around mid-twenties you start really concentrating on the issue but sometimes you get lazy, you’re concentrating on your life too much, and you’re just not really paying attention even than.

It really depends what sort of skincare person you are. As I’ve run into many people that are quite young and already putting energy into developing the best regime for their skin even now to prevent aging in the future.

When Is Your Daughter Too Young for Makeup?

Mommyish Lindsay Cross

I don’t have kids and I don’t have a ton of experience raising them, dealing with them daily, etc…I’m a big child myself so I can picture myself with a baby of my own, that would be absolute chaos. Their father could sell tickets to the event like it was the circus because hells you know me raising a child would be entertainment at its best.

I don’t claim to know the proper age for makeup and I’m pretty liberal in all my views of life….but maybe…kinda, sorta..four years old might be too young for makeup.

Lindsay Cross wrote an article about how she applies makeup on her four year old daughter for special events and it went viral pretty damn fast. And you know what happens once things go viral, Lindsay started feeling the old Internet backlash….

When is your daughter too young for makeup?
