Musings of a Muse: Is the Honeymoon Over?

I dunno about you but I have periods in my beauty and skincare life when the honeymoon is over.




You know that fresh from the package excitement you get when you purchase some new bit of makeup or skincare? The type of excitement that has you convinced that the product is changing the way you look, the way you feel, the way your skin looks, etc…..I swear I have a honeymoon period with every single makeup item and skincare product I’ve ever purchased. This is the time where I proceed to promise said product how I’ll love it for ever and ever and ever and how I’ll never cheat on it and how thankful I am to it for making my face look flawless or making my lips look fuller…

Ahh yes the honeymoon period is such a joyous time.

But like all good relationships the honeymoon periods ends.

Do Not Want: Philosophy 64 oz Vanilla Birthday Cake Shower Gel

Dear Philosophy,

Me and you, we have chemistry, we have a connection babe. We’ve been friends for a long time now and we’ve gone through alot of highs and lows right?

So it should be ok that I address the issue of your QVC Today’s Special Value.


I hate to be the one to break it to you.

But no one wants 64 ounces of Vanilla Birthday Cake in their shower. WTH? Don’t build our hopes up for Today’s Special Value and proceed to offer us enough shower gel to bath a small city with. Don’t you know anything about me (us) at all? You know we love variety, you know we can’t be true to a single shower gel for THAT long! How do you expect us to get through that big a shower gel? We may like it today but tomorrow we’ll be on to the next best thing….we can’t commit to 64 ounces, it’s simply too MUCH!

I’m sorry but DO NOT WANT a 64 oz Shower Gel.

Next anniversary can we get something a bit more special?

k, thanks.

Love you!

P.S. I got a sample of Vanilla Birthday Cake and it doesn’t even smell that great. Dude, talk about rubbing salt in an open wound…ouch!

P.S.S. If for some strange reason you DO need a big ass shower gel you can get yours from
