The Muse’s Gift Guide: Unique Gifts From Etailers Part 1

Muses Gift

Hello dears.

It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it?  But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.

I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers.  What are Etailers?  Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them.  It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch.   These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics.  I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.

I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made.    I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering.   Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.

In other news…

I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December.  Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family.  If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

Jump ahead for the Muse’s Gift Guide to Unique Gifts From Etailers around the Internet!

Beauty News: PRIORI Launches at Studio BeautyMix

PRIORI Skincare

Anyone a Priori fan girl?   I’m actually not, I never tried it but recently it launched on Studio BeautyMix if you happen to follow the line.

It’s supposedly a cutting edge skincare brand that has clinical proven formulas with extraordinary anti-aging benefits.  Ok, I wanna break that fountain of youth, buy me a ticket on board the Priori train.

You can log on to www.StudioBeautyMix.com to check out the line if you’re a skincare junkie or you’re just wanting to make a break for the border away from fine lines and other general old age skincare woes.

The collection is pretty expensive but when have you seen quality skincare cheap eh?

I’m thinking the Priori CoffeeBerry Radiance Eye Serum may make my eye cream world.

Anyone a lover?

Do educate the Muse on the joys of Priori!

Yay or Nay: FranBrand SkinCare

Franbrand Skincare 2

The Muse deserves her own line of skincare….or…mmmm makeup.   Yes, I’d like my very own brand of makeup please.  What?  Everyone else has one why can’t I?   Victoria Principal, Lauren Hutton, Joan Rivers…it’s like a law in Hollywood that after you’re older they give you a gratuitous makeup collection of your very own.  The next victim to jump that train?  Wait for it…..The Nanny!   Well, you and I know her as The Nanny but her actual name is Fran Drescher.

Yes, Fran Drescher does have her own skincare line, indeed it’s very true.  FranBrand, not an inventive name by any means, is now available for purchase on HSN.  How do I know this?  Because I’m diseased enough to Tivo episodes of HSN and FranBrand happened to interrupt the showing of Clean Fragrance I was recording today.

Actually…a little surprise about the line.

Jump for it and you can yay or nay it after you hear my thoughts!
