Your Muse has made the jump and she’s live on Specktra!

In a prior blog I had told you I’d be joining up with Specktra to write a weekly column. So this week mark’s a new part of Musings of a Muse as I join up with Specktra to bring new and exciting products to delight and tempt you icon wink

Every Wednesday I’ll go from being just the Muse and convert myself into Specktra’s Product Muse!

I’m very excited to take this project on and hopefully I can bring you some new and exciting reviews, products, and general awesome cosmetics bits and pieces!

You can read my very first introductory post at Specktra by clicking here!

Nordstrom Exclusive: MAC Keepsake

A most gorgeous friend and reader of Musings of a Muse has pictures up of her latest haul!

Check out Stephanie’s blog by clicking here to view her haul!

She has up pictures from the Nordstrom MAC Exclusive that I didn’t get! I have Shimmertime pigment and the Softsparkle Pencil already which was why I didn’t purchase this set but now seeing Steph’s pictures I’m wanting this set!

You can also see the rest of her Holiday haul icon smile

Good purchases Steph! Thanks for sharing with us and the Muse can’t be held responsible if a ton of people want to kidnap Daisy after seeing her on your blog icon wink
