Pieces of Life: The K-Drama Edition

really

Hey guys!

I’m on my latest K-Drama kick so I thought I’d do a “Pieces of Life” Edition about it as I’m wondering what everyone is watching at the moment.

I’m currently trying to get through I Really, Really Like You but for some reason it’s slow going so far…hmmmmm…must be me being tired perhaps!

Jump ahead to read more!

I’m positive that I’m not only tired but the bloody subtitles are moving so fast that I can’t take a breath to actually watch anything hehe! But so far it’s a bit on the meh side.

I+Really,+Really+Like+You+3

I+Really,+Really+Like+You+2

I waited ages to purchase it via YesAsia but they only ever had the Part 1 Box Set in stock (finally Box Set 2 is out) and I just couldn’t wait any longer so I had it CP’ed from Malaysia. Impatient is the Muse but hey it actually worked out way cheaper but only prob is the damn subtitles!

There really hasn’t been much in the way of releases that I’ve really wanted to see aside from Iljimae. Lurve me some Lee Jun Ki, WANT! I just recently finished re-watching Sweet 18. I dunno what happened but one day I was listening to the soundtrack and suddenly the urge to re-watch it was upon me, glad I did it’s such a fab drama!

Anyway!

What’s playing on your telly at the moment or DVD?

Have you seen I Really, Really Like You (Love Truly)?

Whatcha think?

When I seen the new Pure Luxe BubbleGum Ballz Collection I so knew I needed it! Bold, bright shades that resemble those bright, sweet balls of gum that I loved as a kid.

Jump ahead to see the collection!

With Spring well on it’s way I’m all about bolder, vibrant shades of shadow so of course when I seen the Pure Luxe Bubblegum Ballz Collection I was all over it like white on rice.

Made up of 7 popping shades of bold bubblegum colors this collection is sure to please anyone who adores a bit of a bang with their eye shadow. These are some of the boldest, brightest shades available from Pure Luxe and all are an inexpensive beauty find. At $1 per a 1/8 sample and $5 per a 5g jar you seriously can’t say no to these.

Each shade is nicely pigmented with a pearl, shimmery finish. I purchased all seven shades in the 1/8 sample size for a $1 USD as I can get plenty of use out of this size. I’m always quite pleased with all my orders from Pure Luxe as they arrive quickly and price wise you can’t beat it.

This collection is well worth picking up if you like a little kick with your shadows. Expect some FOTD’s soon.

Love ‘em?

Too bold for you?

Just right?

Givenchy Spring 2009 FOTD

givenchy+

I recently did an FOTD for you using Givenchy Sari Glow Blush in Maharani Orange, Givenchy Precious Sari Glittering Eyeshadow in Maharani Gold, and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Maharani Henna and today I’ll be bringing you another look using some of the items from the Givenchy Spring Collection 2009.

Jump ahead to have a peek!

Since I’ve already done a warmer looking using some of the Givenchy Spring Collection, I thought a cooler order was in order. For the cooler look I used Givenchy Sari Glow Blush in Maharani Pink and Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Maharani Rose. I was tempted to use Givenchy Precious Sari Glittering Eyeshadow in Maharani Silver but I thought it didn’t quite go so well with all the pink so I opted for a wash of color using a few MAC eye shadows in various pink shades.

The pink blush wasn’t as popping as I thought it would be and it came out as a basic pink shade on my cheeks, quite flattering really but nothing as bold as I originally though. I’m absolutely in deeper lust now after trying out the Maharani Rose lippie! It’s a stunning shade and quite lovely for Spring.

Here’s the basic look I created using the above listed items:

In the Muse’s Purse: Bath and Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy

in+the+muse%27s+purse


You know my mum thinks that the solution to life, the universe, and everything is bottled up in a jar of Vicks Vaporub.

300px Vicks vaporub1


For serious.

Anything that ails me can normally be solved by rubbing myself with Vicks Vaporub. I dunno, that’s what my mother told me.

If I have a cold rub some Vicks on my chest, if I’m coughing rub some Vicks on my chest, if I have a sore throat rub some Vicks on my chest….what can I say my mum is either a nutter or kickin’ it old skool. So I do admit that she has a point here. I do feel heaps better after a rub down with Vicks Vaporub but mmmm walking out of my house and going to my office with a bunch of greasy petroleum under my nose and on my chest is a tad bit on the strange side.

Have no fear! I have just the solution for fighting off the flu and cold season with an easy to use product that’s in the Muse’s purse!

Jump ahead to check it out!

Guest starring in the Muse’s Purse today is Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy Roll On!

Bath+and+Body+Works+Cold+%26+Flu+Therapy+Instant+Aromatherapy+4

w00t! Portable cold control!

What is it?

It’s an all-natural roll on that contains a blend of eucalyptus, basil, spearmint, wild mint, lavender, cedar left, and essential oils. Shake up the bottle a bit and roll onto the base of your throat and around the chest are, now breath deeply to combat the unwanted effects of your stuffy noise brought on by the cold, wintery weather!

Bath+and+Body+Works+Cold+%26+Flu+Therapy+Instant+Aromatherapy+7


Don’t you love this? I totally dig having a portable roll on for clearing up my stuffy head and nose. I can’t concentrate when I’m constantly sniffling and this does the trick at clearing up my stuffy nose and allowing me to breath easy again! Pure perfection in a little roll on bottle!

Let’s face it, carrying around a jar of Vicks Vaporub is not an option so get the next best, budget friendly option (this is only $5 bucks) to tote around in your purse with you! Bath and Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy Roll On is in the Muse’s purse and remains there until the warm weather sets in!
