Pieces of Life: The Monday Morning Edition

Monday+Edition

Morning guys!

Happy Monday! Oh my god tis like the Monday from hell! Was so hard dragging my butt out of bed this morning after having so many days off. I swear the last few days have been so completely relaxing! I’m always running around doing this, that, and the other thing and never have enough free time to just sit down and veg! The last few days I did just that. Total vegetable. It was so lovely. I caught up on a few books I’ve been meaning to read, played stupid amounts of WoW, watched a slew of geeky flicks with my mate Martin (we generally have the same retarded taste in sci-fi films one of which was Capricorn One circa before James Brolin became Barbra Streisand’s b*tch…what? I love Barbra but we all know she has James on lock down!), and just really enjoyed doing absolutely nothing!


Jump ahead to read more about my Monday, the weekend, and what’s ahead at Musings!

Oh and I was really productive and stuff this weekend too so I did do other stuff that wasn’t in the realms of playing dead and acting like a veggie! Read on….

For the longest time my main ring tone was the Time Warp so I decided to change it this weekend. What? I’m still in Halloween mode I guess…sue me!

Check it and tell me whatcha think icon wink


I also switched up the slider to play the sound of the Tardis launching! Loves it!

See? Told ya I was productive!

I have a slew of posts for you today including my Year End Favorites list, my New Year’s Resolution post, a giveaway or two, and a few other tricks up my sleeves so stay tuned! Oh which reminds me I know the past few days you haven’t seen many reviews but don’t worry those are coming along too and we’ll be back to cosmetic nirvana shortly!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and you’re back on the “back to work” bandwagon! After a few diet cherry pepsis, some tea, and a bit of coffee the Muse promises you’ll be all awake and alert enough to deal with Monday morning!

Feel free to spread the cheer about your weekend and what you did, what you hauled, and any trouble you got into! My comment box is open and my eyes are listening!

xoxo <--------whoa how gossip girl of me!

The Regeneration of a Most Beloved Doctor

I find it funny that my inbox has over 100 e-mails in it that are labeled “Doctor Who” in subject. I also got a few comments already as well in regards…to yes you guessed it…the new Doctor.

With all these outcries to the Muse I thought that indeed the good Doctor deserved his very own post because honestly, the regeneration of our beloved 10th deserves that at the very least right?

doctor+who+11th+doctor

I fear that I haven’t felt this badly about a regeneration since my fond favorite fourth Doctor, the great Tom Baker, regenerated into Peter Davidson. For a long time I resented Peter for taking away my girlhood crush, Tom Baker but I slowly came to love him.

So the Muse has a basic statement to release on the casting of the 11th Doctor.

Don’t Panic.

Yes, that’s it. Don’t Panic. Be a good hitchhiker and just don’t panic. If you’re a Who fan you’ve felt this way for every regeneration of every favorite Who in the last 30 years or more. We’ve all seen our favorites come and go. We’ve all mourned our favorites. I remember mourning Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, I even felt some remorse for the late, great William Hartnell. Believe it or not I became mighty attached to Christopher Eccleston as well and I thought it was god awful they were replacing him with David Tennant. Weird right?

We have something to look forward to right? Our Doctor’s personality will stay the same but with new traits and quirks. Yes, Matt Smith is virtually a no name but if you think about it David Tennant wasn’t exactly HUGE in the way of stardom either was he? At the moment Matt Smith (kinda ironic his last name is Smith…as in John Smith…) probably isn’t our top pick for the Doctor but he’s young, he’s fairly good looking, and who knows (who knows..pun intended) he may be the next best thing to David.

I think we should all remain calm and hope for the best. I have confidence that the writers will bring us a fantastic Doctor and although I mourn the loss of David I do embrace the idea of a brand new Doctor. I think David shows alot of class to pass the torch and not milk the “brand” that Doctor Who has become for all it’s worth. I think he recognized the fact that things can get old really fast and he wanted to be remembered as a great Doctor rather than a washed up Doctor. So cheers to David for making a hard choice to disembark the Tardis and make room for a new Doctor.

Chin up Who fans! We’ll be fine. We should be more worried over the fact that Catherine Zeta Jones might board the Tardis next season….now THAT worries me! You do know that she and the hub come as a package?

Wince!

There, there now. Group hug!

More Musings of Edward Cullen

It’s getting to be that special time of the month soon kids! The 21st is around the corner and the Muse and many of her friends (even my newly converted sister) are very eager for the date to arrive! I told my sister she has to be on Team Jacob teehee the Muse be evil but there are just TOO many Team Edward players! Sorry the Muse wants the Edward all for herself! Get ye to the Team Jacob field!

Last Sunday morning my friend Jai, Kenningston, Jenn, Kira and myself hauled ass to Torrid, Hot Topic, and anywhere else in the Mall that had Twilight gear. We ended up snatching up several T-Shirts, patches, totes, and various other paraphernalia which we proceeded to take home and chop up over Sunday brunch to make several hoodies with. But of course the Muse is a Team Edward player so her hoodie is all ABOUT Edward!

I’m not going to show you how it came out just yet as I’m still working on it but be prepared for the unveiling soon! My best friend Jai is also a Team Edward player and his hoodie came out particularly brilliant with sequins and other glittery bits and bobs. Gotta love the dazzle and Edward right?

The moral of the story is that you don’t have to get too particularly crazy and start making hoodies out of chopped up t-shirts when you can get some already made at Cafe Press! The Muse seen some seriously awesome stuff on the site and highly suggest skipping over for a lookiee and a purchase for the big night! Users got really creative with some of the gear available for sale and some items made me laugh! Gotta love the rabid fan girls right? I mean there are over 130,000 designs at Cafe Press….You. Gotta. Love. That.

CLICK to visit the Twilight Cafe Press!

Here’s some that caught my eye in particular:

‘Nuff Said!

The moral of this story is that the Muse is a sad, old fan girl! Hehe and loving it too! Cheers to my rabid fan girls and hope for the best as the Muse is slightly worried it won’t live up to all the hype but at least we can relieve it in our imaginations!

Remember kids, all good things Twilight, Edward, and Cullen is Muse Approved!

Bourjois Paris Anticerne pour Petits Matins aka Bourjois Paris Light Diffusing Concealer Review

So it wasn’t enough that I tortured you today with one really crummy concealer but here I am again with another rubbish concealer!

Meet Bourjois Paris Anticerne pour Petits Matins:

Picture+128

Picture+129

Better known to the Muse as Bourjois Paris Light Diffusing Concealer, much easier to pronounce that, yes?

I’ve had this a few months now but never got around to doing the review! Bad Muse, Bad! Depending on how you see it you’ll be either really happy it’s not available in the US or really sad. This is exclusive to the UK and possibly the Netherlands and a few other European countries, honestly I haven’t checked all the site portals so I’m unsure but I got mine from England.

Now honestly as far as I’m concerned normally concealers that come in click style pens with brush applicators are a NEVER go wrong item! I’ve tried so many I’ve lost count but I do know I’ve always been plenty pleased with them however, with much dismay, I have to give a poor review to this one.

I generally love everything and anything Bourjois Paris puts out however they really did a poor job with this concealer. Although I wasn’t expecting a miracle, I did expect that the concealer would at least cover my basic woes such as fine lines, dark shadows, and just make my eyes more awake and fresh. Sadly, this did nothing at all for anything in and around my eyes. I was secretly hopeful this would be a nice, thick, moisturizing, pigmented concealer that would replace my very expensive Dior Booster Pen however that’s so NOT the case.

I’m unsure why the product fails so miserable. One main problem is of course is it seriously lacks any pigmentation. It glides on well enough and the formula, although not thick, is nicely cooling and moisturizing however the lack of pigmentation causes the main problem. In Bourjois’ defense I will say that this isn’t really supposed to act as a concealer but more of a highlighter for deflecting off of dark circles and creating the illusion of a better rested you but…well..it doesn’t do that either. Honestly, it does a whole lot of nothing.

On top of not doing much in the ways of making the Muse appear rested and awake it also kinda lends a helping hand in making my already dry under eyes even more dry! Sigh! Rant! As you’re smoothing on and patting into place it feels quite nice and moisturizing however after the better part of the day goes by your left with major creasing and a dryness that only the Sahara could surpass!

Although the click style pen is a super plus for the Muse as is the handy dandy brush applicator…if I’m honest…neither of those features do much to impress me after my rather long list of wrongs with the product!

Picture+132

I know I wrongfully expected a miracle but at the very least I did want something that at least worked. This one is on the Muse’s do not buy list! I just couldn’t love it.

The good news is Bourjois Paris has introduced a new concealer which looks promising! The Muse thinks you should hold out and try this new concealer and avoid the Bourjois Paris Light Diffusing Concealer! I’ll try to get a review up of this one shortly!

Behold:

By the way since we are on the topic of jolly old England did you know that they announced the latest Doctor Who Christmas Special for this year! Lord knows, my Holiday isn’t complete without knowing the Doctor will make an appearance for Christmas! The Muse enjoys all that wibbley wobbley timey wimey stuff! If there wasn’t any Doctor at Christmas it would be like the Year without Santa Claus! GASP! Thank god David decided to take time off of Hamlet to grace us with his presence this Christmas! (Hint: The picture is a bit of a tip off for what to expect this coming season! You either already know what the episode will be about or what is coming thanks to the pic!)
