Beauty Discovery: Grumpy Girl Soap Company

Hey chicklets!

What’s news? I just got home about 2 seconds ago, ummmm yea so cold out but at least my tummy is full, had some lovely sushi. God I ate sushi 4 times this week, umm fish overload but seriously can one never have too much sushi? My night consists of makeup off, PJ’s on, powerbook on, and starting to get through all my long over due backed up comments! I have my shadow Martin with me which means he’s going to be VERY busy trying to tempt me to play Call of Duty with him but I’m not giving in! I’m promising myself to do a major dent in comments tonight and talk to everyone who’s been awaiting a reply. Don’t hate me for the delayed reply ok? It just gets busy around these parts and hard to keep up on all the happenings around Musings. I also need to get my swatchies done for the Urban Decay Alice and Wonderland Palette, I can’t wait to tell you about it. I swear I’m about to burst if I don’t get the post up soon.

Before I hit the comment sack to see what you guys are blathering about (I do so love chattin’ it up with you all) I thought I’d do a quickie Beauty Discovery post. It’s been a while in between my Beauty Discovery category. I’ve had this particularly post you’re about to read on the back burner for about a month so tonight seemed a perfect night to give you the low down.

If you haven’t been privy to my Beauty Discovery posts before here’s a run down. Basically Beauty Discovery consists of a brand you may never heard of or perhaps an online shop or Etsy finding. Whatever the case may be most times it’s a delightful little surprise.

Today I’m discovering Grumpy Girl Candle and Bath Company!

Have a little jump to discovery this beauty brand.

Barbie Chooses A New Career with Help from YOU!

Barbie Chooses A New Career 121

Although it’s not beauty related I thought this was rather fun when it popped into my e-mail box as I grew up with Barbie. I was the chick that would cut off my Barbie’s head, drag her through the mud, and perform wicked weird experiments on her. Yeah well I was a bit of a tom boy. I remember my first crush, Johnathan, had those WWF Wrestler action figures and we’d practice body slams on Barbie together, Barbie always won.

No matter how you treated your Barbie there isn’t any denying the fact that she’s an American style icon and a fond favorite of little girls far and wide.

Fun fact, did you know Barbie has held over 120 careers over the years? She was a fashion editor, a Pediatrician…..I don’t see beauty blogger on this list. I think that’s what Barbie’s next career should be!

This year, Barbie actually wants you to help her choose her next job! Careers have been narrowed down to five possible choices which are as follows:

  • Environmentalist
  • Surgeon
  • Architect
  • News Anchor
  • Computer Engineer

Which do you think Barbie should pursue? Help choose at www.barbie.com/vote/

In February, Barbie’s next job will be announced and later on a new Barbie will be released all dolled up for her new gig.

I’m still saying Beauty Blogger should be on that list but I’m voting Computer Engineer! Go Geek Barbie!

What would you choose as Barbie’s next career?

Any not on the list that you’d go with?
