As Seen by the Muse: Hard Candy Spring Collection 2010

As Seen by the Muse 1

Hey guys!

What’s new? Tough Monday morning right? Oh my god four and half days off is not good for the soul come Monday morning. My butt is dragging around today something fierce. I’m trying to get stuff cleared up in my office as quickly as possible as stuff keeps flying at me today. The good news is me and my sis put up our office decorations on Wednesday before leaving early so it was nice to come in this morning and be greeted by a little bit of Christmas.

On a side note…you may have noticed I’ve been experiencing some down time here and there on Musings. Grrrrr my host, DreamHost, has been really mucking up badly. I absolutely adore the company and have good luck since my move but the down time I’ve been experiencing is a nightmare at times. Just wanted to give you the heads up if you visit and it’s not loading it would be a problem with the host. If it continues I’ll be moving but we’ll see what happens.

Anyway….how was your T-Day? Mine was lovely! Food coma of course but that’s what Thanksgiving is for right? What did you do? Anyone go out of town? My friend Kenningston headed out of town and he mentioned it was crazy busy, guess it’s a good thing for the economy eh?

How about steals and deals? Anyone snag any good sales? I loaded up this weekend and have almost all my shopping done, PHEW! Now I just need to pick up a few more things for my friends and I’m done.

Side note…

hard candy spring collection 2010

As seen by the Muse on Hard Candy’s Twitter account word of a possible Spring Collection?

Seriously, the stash of Hard Candy is already HUGE, who knew they’d go so far to introduce further goodies? Likey Hard Candy, likey very much. According to their tweet a new stash of goodies arrives in store around March. I look forward to seeing it!

Hard Candy Spring Collection 2010 mayhaps? Who knows but either way I like they are taking the initiative to keep the brand fresh!

So how about you guys?

Chatter on about your T-Day!

Tell me about what you’re loving from Hard Candy or give me the good word on what sales you devoured this weekend.

I’m a listenin’!

I also have to get through all your comments from the past four days so give me a sec and I’ll be replying shortly.

Pieces of the Life: The Weekend Cometh

weekend

Hey guys!

What’s news? It’s a beautiful, brisk Fall day in New York. Love, love the Autumn. I just got back from the pit of hell. I barely made it back really it was tough, had to drag myself up and out, phew. I had to send off a few packages to our Breast Cancer Month winners and a few blogger friends. Yay expect some package love from the Muse for those of you who won. Oh yes the pit of hell would be the post office…I avoid it at all costs. It’s scary, someone hold me, I need to be comforted after going there.

Now I’m just procrastinating when I seriously need to buckle down and get some work done at my office. Lucky enough I don’t have too many things pending and my dear ole’ sis is always on top of everything, bless her little soul. I have some great reviews upcoming for you, more holiday bits and bobs, the new Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball, and an incredible foundation that I’m loving at the moment. Also my headband contest ends today so don’t forget to enter, thanks to everyone who sent headband pictures, I’m so loving ‘em!

Aside from that I’m gearing up for the weekend, can’t wait. What are you plans for the weekend? Any fun happenings?

Hope you’ll take a sec out of your busy Friday to blather with me a little bit today and tell me how you are and what’s going on!

Talk soon!

Happy Weekend!

Pieces of Life: DOMO! Edition

Target Domo Halloween 1

The Muse briefly interrupts your regular cosmetic readings to show you some Domo pr0n!

DOMO!

Ok, actually there is a reason behind my Domo lovin’ post today. I got about 75 e-mails, a few tweets, and a comment or two after I tweeted a few pictures of my recent Domo Halloween haulings. Sinseriously Domo and Halloween? That’s like bringing together milk and chocolate chip cookies, the coolness knows no bounds.

Moral of the story is people NEEDED to know where to buy Domo! OMGZ It’s Domo, where can I gets him?

Target actually caters to the Domo fan girls almost every season. There’s Domo Halloween, Domo Easter, Domo Christmas, etc…..basically Domo does the Holidays at Target. Last year, Domo was a huge Halloween theme on Target but this year not so much as he’s been traded in for Skelanimals. I love me some Skelanimals but I actually prefer Domo.

Problem is when they introduced the Skelanimals they really pushed Domo aside and made it near impossible to find him. Here’s my suggestions for locating him at your local Target.

Brace yourself you may need to search a while. I went to four Targets without success. An online friend located in NJ found me Pumpkin and Devil Domo recently (thanks Tam, love ya lots). My friend Martin has been running around the city trying to locate poor Domo everywheres as well. We located Domo Dracula recently w00t, score!

Target Domo Halloween 3

Since Skelanimals are the main attraction I highly suggest looking outside the main Halloween display for Domo. I located Domo Dracula in a pile of Halloween stuffed toys at the 2nd aisle of the Halloween display on the very last shelf, pushed way to the back. After speaking with other Domo enthusiasts this has been the same experience for them. When all else fails I highly recommend asking a Target sales rep. Most of ‘em are friendly and about 80% of them seem to be hardcore Domo fans so they can point you in the right direction or break the bad news to you gently that Domo is sold out.

Finally when desperation sets in head to Evil-Bay and enjoy jacked up prices of Domo.

Hope this helps.

Happy Domo Halloween!

P.S. The non-Domo fans can disregard this public service announcement and yes we will hate all over you if you ask, “Who’s Domo?”

Feel free to chat about Domo in the comment box, I’m a listening!

UPDATE: Tammy has informed me Domo is also available at 7-Eleven.

Disclosure: The Muse purchased Domo with her own money. This is not an endorsement for Domo or a paid advertisement. Domo has his own money and endorsements and does not need the Muse to endorse him. The only thing endorsed here is my love of Domo and my eagerness to pass that love on.
