Beauty Bits & Bobs
Honey I’m home!
Did you miss me?
I have to get caught up with e-mails and comments but I was sure to do a few posts early this AM as soon as I came in the door so you weren’t too bored while awaiting my address to my court (I’m so self important aren’t I?)!
Thanks for all the great comments and e-mails! I’ll get right on the comments and I promise by next year you’ll all have a reply to the e-mails you’ve sent
Vegas was awesome. CES was outstanding. I didn’t want to leave but real life was calling my number and I had to come back and get my butt back to work sadly!
I missed you all!
Hump Day: Wednesday, or the hump of the week. The absolute BEST day of the week, the day of maximum hope that maybe, you might make it out of this week alive. A particularly good hump day can last you the rest of the week, and by Doomday morning (Monday) you survive by anticipating hump day.
As defined in the Urban Dictionary.
What better way to celebrate Hump Day then with a few Steals and Deals?

Welcome to my newest category, Pointless Products! This is where I’ll post on a occasion when I run across a pointless beauty products. And believe you me plenty are around!
Allow me to christen my new category with my first Pointless Product:
Seriously do people really purchase this!
No one adores glitter as much as me but the idea of a can of spray glitter sold at Sephora just scares me. This is something a local party store would sell during Halloween right next to the case of silly string!
Unless you’re 13 and going to your first boy/girl party this would be a very pointless product!
The Muse says stop being ridiculous Sephora!
I’m off to Vegas for CES! Sadly, CES has nothing for the cosmetic lover to muse over however if you happen to be a geek, like the Muse, you’ll be happy to read all about my adventures when I get home! Don’t worry part of my adventure will consist of hitting the MAC Pro store in Vegas while I’m there so it won’t all be about geeky bits!
I go to CES, Macworld, and Defcon (and other geeky conferences I won’t mention here for fear of appearing too much like the nerd I am) almost ever year. This year I’m unable to be away too long from my office due to our renewal season being so amazingly busy! So I’ll be away for two days only minor correction it’ll actually be 4 days if you count the weekend (contrary to popular belief I don’t blog all day! I have to earn my crust somehow and blogging about cosmetics just doesn’t cut it. I actually own and operate my own insurance offices with my sister riding shotgun!).
Some exciting info about CES:
Yoko Ono will be there! I’m one of the few surviving fans (and Paul McCartney’s a fan too! There’s a joke in there somewhere if you’re quick enough to catch my weird sense of humor!) of the Plastic Ono Band! In my weird musical tastes I somehow see the Plastic Ono band as a musical masterpiece! I’m excited to just meet Yoko Ono as I believe she’s responsible for some of John’s better work contrary to the fans that are calling blasphemy at the moment! If you’re a Beatle fan you (like me) probably have a healthy love hate relationship with Yoko Ono so saying she’s responsible for some of John’s best work is ok to admit!
Let’s see who else….Natasha Bedingfield and Mary J. Blige! I’m throwing names out that I think you’ll know because if I start flinging geeks at you chances are you’re going to say “who the hell is she talking about?”.
I haven’t quite dug into my schedule yet and I’m not entirely sure what’s going on during what dates and what I’ll be able to fit in and what I’ll miss but I can tell you a few items that I’m hoping to catch up with while there!
High-Performance Audio & Home Theater Exhibits
Emerging Technology Exhibits
Keynote with Winblows Creator Bill Gates (There would be another joke in that!)
Jerry Yang is doing some sort of keynote speech as well I believe which I’d like to see!
CNET’s Best of CES Awards
I’m quite excited! Wish me luck and maybe I’ll score awesome tech gear as well as amazing cosmetic purchases! I doubt I’ll come home from Vegas without some sort of makeup in tow! However, I can’t promise much as I’m attending with a hoard of geeky guys that are most definately not going to want to take time out to shop for cosmetics but we shall see what happens!
Wish me luck!
See you in a few days
This is rather the condensed version of Steals and Deals as I haven’t had as much time to research items for you this week
The good news is I believe it’s a great Steal
HSN has some killer deals on Clean perfume this week that I don’t think you want to miss! I love Clean. Let me say that again. I. Love. Clean.
It’s such an amazing scent and truly gives you that just from the shower scent. Soap and Water has never been so sexy!
If you never tried Clean and you’re looking at this Steal and Deal and wondering well I can’t smell it so I shouldn’t really buy it. Think again! If you love really fresh scents that just bring out the feeling of “cleanliness” then this scent would be for you! It’s very fresh, very light yet lingering, and just beautiful! Think soap and water, think just fresh laundry from your dryer, think beautiful!
Clean is not cheap by any means. It runs $76 for a 2.14oz bottle. That’s quite costly but on the up side it’s for the Eau de Parfum NOT the Eau de Toilette. A ton of the market is saturated with designer scents that are expensive and Eau de Toilette in format. Which means they are short lived upon spraying them. Clean is very lingering and has wonderful throw so people are going to stop and ask what is that you’re wearing?!?!?
If I use it once in a week I can smell it for the entire month on my coat. It just sticks around. Gorgeous.
Anyway enough of my raving! On with the Steals and Deals!
As I was saying 2.14oz is $76 but you can get your choice of Ultimate, Fresh Laundry, Provence, or the regular Clean with a matching 2oz Lotion for $60 at HSN!
As I said before this is for the Eau de Parfume so that’s a double deal! It’s about a $16 discount from the regular price plus you’re getting the matching lotion! Not bad at all!
I seriously can kick myself right now as I own all of the versions of Clean and paid $76 for each when I could have gotten this deal! Grrrrr!
Clean Fresh Laundry
I can’t think of a better Steal and Deal to start the weekend off!
Own them already?
Tell the Muse!
