Heath Ledger Broke?!

heath ledger 02

I was shocked to hear that Heath Ledger has a total of $100,000 to his name. I’m left wondering how the hell that’s possible?

According to a news article on Yahoo the Brokeback Mountain star has a total of $100,000 in various bank accounts, a $25,000 car, and about $20,000 in furniture and home fixtures. He’s not in dept but he wasn’t exactly doing so great.

Click!

The man’s mad 23 films or so and he only squirreled away $100,000? Granted many of the films he’s starred in are Indie however he has been in some seriously silly Hollywood flicks…he had to be paid something for those right?

Wow.

Shocked here.

Your Current Beauty Addictions

My tastes in cosmetics varies from day to day, week to week, and month to month. What was my favorite last month is most likely not my favorite this month. I have such a variety of product that I am constantly rotating what I have and finding new favorites each day!

I thought I’d do a post that examined some of my favorite items at the moment!

Thanks Rows the Muse hearts you for getting her hooked on this stuff!

Koda Kumi is a Goner!

?action=view&current=wwwbmpwwwI was wandering around the Visee website this morning and it’s pretty much official that Kodi Kumi is a goner from the champaign.

The new site is updated with a face chart when you click “What’s New?”
koidajumi

Here’s what you used to get when clicking “What’s New?” As you can see Kodi Kumi has been replaced with a cutesy face chart!
wwwbmp

I believe the site went live again about a week or two ago and the images have been revamped to exclude Kodi Kumi from the ads. I’m not sure if she’s completely gone or this is temporary while the fire cools. I’m betting she’s gone completely and the Summer Collection will feature a new spokesperson! But we shall see! I’ll miss her actually as she has that edge that really brought Visee alive for me and I’m curious who they’ll replace her with!

Below is the new Make-Up theme, again Kodi Kumi has been replaced by the cute face chart image!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday girls (and guys)!

Sadly, no new updates for the Muse today. I have about 5 good entries to post but sadly Blogger is still in weekend mode and refuses to work for me.

Dunno what’s going on but I’m unable to upload pictures. It’s definately not a problem on my side but nothing on the maintenance page from Blogger either. Sigh.

How very irritating!

I’ve tried in several browses including Safari and no joy! So sadly, updates have to wait a while until this is fixed up!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I needed to get my mind off a few things so I really kept myself busy this weekend! I ended up going to two movies with friends, shopping with some friends, brunch with some friends I haven’t seen in a while, helped my mum get her Easter dinner shopping done, went to visit my cousin, did Spring closet and makeup cleaning, went to a poetry reading, went to a book signing, and a bunch of other stuff. All this excluding sleep lol! I’m kidding icon wink

How about you?

What did you do this weekend?

It was major cold here. Strong winds about 26 degrees out! Brrrr! But it felt good walking along in a warm jacket and gloves. Sometimes it just feels nice to be out in the cold weather!

Anyway!

Updates to come as soon as Blogger decides to cooperate! This little problem should get my arse in gear to get my own website up and rolling and do away with Blogger completely!

Back to work with my lazy self!

Cheers!

PS Good news. I was able to locate the Horizon Blush in Pink! w00t! I’ll be reviewing it shortly icon wink

My Celebirty Look-A-Likes

I decided to do one of these “Celebrity Look-a-likes” after seeing them on a few other blogs! I’m scratching my head wondering how my celebrity look-a-like falls into the Beyonce and Eva Langoria range!

I thought for sure after putting my picture up it would compile and come up with images of Roseanne Bar, Rosie O’Donnell, and if I was lucky by some chance maybe they’d stick Mia Tyler in there!

But I somehow got lucky. I really couldn’t care less about Eva Langoria but hell I don’t mind being compared to Beyonce but above all else they went and released my inner Asian and I’m now on par with the likes of Aya Matsuura.

I feel like I’ve arrived. Aya Matsuura! Am I awesome or what!?

Now another one I’m properly chuffed with is Brigette Bardot. Wow…I’m a sex symbol now baby!

Upload your picture at My Heritage website and tell me who your Celebrity Look-a-Likes are!
