Musings of the Day: If I Had a Millionaire Dollars or $10,000

Sephora Sweeps Total Beauty

Morning loves!

Actually it’s not morning anymore right? My god, the hours are all running into each other this crazy busy day!

I got kinda a fun idea for today’s Musings of the Day when I seen Total Beauty is offering a $10,000 Shopping Spree at Sephora. How insane is that?! What could you possibly buy at Sephora with all that money!? It’s a rather absurd amount…..

But than….it hit me…I bet I’ve spent that much in at least 2-3 years!!!!!!!!!!! My god! Ouchie!

But hey this is money for nothing.

If you wanna enter you can head to Total Beauty and enter for a chance to win by writing product reviews on their site. Total Beauty kinda mimics Makeup Alley and allows everyday users to say their piece on makeup, skincare, and more….

You also get an extra chance to win by signing up for their newsletter. The contest ends as of December 31st, 2009 so hurry! The more you review the better the chances are you’ll win $10k to splurge on a Sephora haul!

And now…..Musings of the Day….what would you buy with $10,000 at Sephora!? Holy cow, I don’t even have an answer for this one!!!!!!

musings of the day 2

I’d probably just sit there and haul entire lines of stuff from Urban Decay, Guerlain, YSL, Etc…..Seriously with 10k we could just OWN everything in the store or almost everything. I’d probably share it with friends too.

What do you think?

What would you haul with $10,000 at Sephora?

Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection Review & Swatches

“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening, In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, We’re happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland.
Gone away is the bluebird, Here to stay is a new bird He sings a love song, As we go along, Walking in a winter wonderland. In the meadow we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he is Parson Brown…….”

Dudes…who the hell is Parson Brown anyway? I had to go Google really quickly to find out! Turns out Parson Brown is another way of saying “minster”….huh? What? And here I was thinking he was some actor from the 50’s….goes to show you how much this Muse knows.

Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection 1

Oh well anyways….

I’m so walking in a Winter Wonderland today with a frosty treat on my eyes that was included with the new Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection. I’m all shimmery white and I even have on my pure white Jack Skellington hoodie…only problem is I feel like living in a plastic bubble because I’m going to cry if I get a speck of dirt on it.

This year Korres has all these killer kits they put together for making Holiday gift giving easy peasy, 1, 2, threesy!

Take the jump to check out my shimmery Winter Wonderland look using the Korres Natural Wonders Color Collection.

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

Muse's 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!
