Beauty Bits & Bobs
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 😉
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!
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!
PS Good news. I was able to locate the Horizon Blush in Pink! w00t! I’ll be reviewing it shortly 😉
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!
Another interesting look from Sephora! I’m a tad bit scared as I believe rigamortis is setting in here!
Are you scared?
I am too.
I just want to know why she’s all pale under her eye area? What the hell happened?
I might have to avoid aquas from now on just in case I look like I’m sporting the new Zombie look!

L@@K! Aren’t these darling?
I got these a few nights at this little shop in Chinatown. It’s sorta a Sanrio style store that carries all sorts of kawaii bits and bobs plus your run of the mill Hello Kitty stuffins!
I got these for makeup storage as I was running out of room for some palettes I had and thought these would not only store them but also look really sweet on my vanity! They are really slim and long and the perfect height and size for MAC quads! I got them for $1.99 USD because Sue lurves me but they are regularly $2.49 USD which isn’t bad either in my humblest opinion!
But of course I couldn’t just leave with the boxes! I ended up with these cute pill boxes as well which were $1 USD Each!
I heart Kiki and Lala! Little Twin Stars Rock 😉
Of course I couldn’t leave without sampling the Hello Kitty warez!
I got this cute little pencil box that I’m going to use for brushes when I’m away on holiday and such! It’s large enough to hold a few and has two trays!
I ended up with this mini perfume atomizer as well! So kawaii!
And finally Sue gifted me with this cute lipstick case! It’s a long silver heart shaped tube that’ll store one lipstick. Click the little button on the side and it pops open and a mirror is on the inner cap! Cool right? Thanks Sue the Muse hearts you (she reads my blog teehee)!
Anyway that was all rather random I guess but it was all so cute, especially the storage boxes I couldn’t resist sharing!
w00t! Ghost Hunters returned tonight!
The Muse has set the Tivo and recorded every juicy minute (when I’ll get a sec to watch it is anyone’s guess!)!
Don’t get me wrong I’ve been enjoying Ghost Hunters International but I was missing Tango in a major way! The Muse crushes on Tango in a rather strange way! What’s not the like? He stutters slightly, he’s twitchy as hell, and he looks like he might fall over if I blow on him but hey he hunts ghosts that’s enough for the Muse! I met Tango at a geeky Fangoria style convention about a year and a half ago and can I tell you he’s as neurotic in real life as he is on the telly but still damn cute! Sadly, I don’t have pics as I was being as neurotic as he is when I met him! I may have even developed some sorta stutter! Imagine if I met a real celebrity? I’d fall over and have convulsions!
So an anonymous poster had posted in my Lestat blog and said that “she loves the random geeky bits…” I can’t begin to tell you how properly chuffed I was when I read that! I got that warm, fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach and I felt like I had accomplished something for the geeks of the world! YES I’ve evolved and become not only your makeup guru but your geek god! I rock!
Seriously I was super proper happy that she was enjoying content that was geeky in nature minus the cosmetic side.
Thus this particular post came alive after I got her comment because I sincerely want to share the joys of the Ghost Hunters with possible fans in Cosmetic Land.
Granted Ghost Hunters has gone from somewhat scary to “oh my god this is so fake” to “wow Jason looks strange being bald and all and having a beard” to “warning: Purely for entertainment purposes only”.
I’m saddened by the fact that Ghost Hunters has taken the commercial path and choose endorsement over science. I’m not a big believer in ghosts in all honesty (I am a believer in aliens if that counts?!) but during the first season of Ghost Hunters they had me slightly believing that maybe just maybe it was true. But it slowly went downhill soon after and I was unable to take much of it seriously. Over the course of it’s run I’d say it was from being sorta believable to being hopelessly full of bologna!
Anyway even if it is for entertainment purposes I still enjoy it in a major way! I’m actually quite saddened the team has dwindled down so much and all the awesome people I enjoyed laughing at (Brian anyone?) are long gone.
However, at least I get to see Brian and Barry make fools of themselves in England, Scotland, Etc…Seriously what’s better then Brian in England running around like an idiot!
The team has since added that Kris or Chris chick who I find deeply annoying! The original cast is pretty much null and Jason, Grant, Steve, and Tango are all that remains but I get my kicks where I can and enjoy it even minus half the originals.
Personally the Muse wants a show named Ghost Hunters Dave Tango Style but I doubt it’ll happen but if you want to start a petition give a yell!
Tell the Muse!
