Pieces of Life: Hello Again!


Hello gang!

Miss me? I missed you terribly. A world without beauty blogging makes the day seem oddly serene and quiet. Nearly two weeks without beauty blogging makes it all seem scary hehe! I so need my to get my beauty fix on. Even with plenty of duty free beauty surrounding me in my travels I still was needing a dose of the interweb so I could share my finds and passions with each of you.

The Muse is back now though so hello again! I hope you’re excited for brand new posts, reviews, and general insane babblings from your friendly Muse over the course of the next few days (yes, that means the weekend will probably have an up crop of new posts too! Gotta get back on my game you see!).

I have 660 unread emails in my inbox and 300 plus comments to get through so do give me a sec and I promise I’ll try to reach out to each of you as fast as my little fingers can type! For now I’m off to grab some good eats with my bestest mate Martin. After a long day at my office with plenty of stuff to catch up on after being so long away I had no time to grab a nibble! Phew!

Anyway….

Do share with me what you’ve been up to! What’s new? Any beauty discovers or breaking news the Muse should know about? How’s your Summer coming along so far…or is it even Summer with all the rain in New York I felt like I was returning to Winter after enjoying many a sunny day while on holiday the past several days!

I missed ya.
I love ya.
I’ll talk with you all soon!

Big Hugs!
your Muse

Gone Fishin’ Be Back Soon!


Hey gang!

Happy Summer! I consider June 1st the beginning of Summer even though it’s technically the 21st, hey who’s countin’ right?

The good news is, at least good for me, is I’m off on holiday for several days! Yay! Resting, relaxing, and enjoying a beautiful tropical island. Phew I need a break to say the least.

The bad news is that Musings is going on holiday with me which means no updates until I get back home. However, I did schedule two Summer reviews for you that should be posting right before this one. Hopefully you’re enjoying those right now.

While I’m away I hope you’ll find some fun in my archives or by searching my site for reviews you may have missed. Or discovering some of my most popular posts!

And of course to kick off Summer right a brand new look for Musings as well which I hope you like. Bright, Summery colors should get you in the mood for the warm weather ahead.

I’ll miss you all very much!

Be back really soon with plenty of great updates.

Turrah!

Pieces of Life: Comments! Edition

comments

Just a quickie note, I’m a tad behind on email and comments. I’m really sorry guys. Just been swamped as bloody hell. Forgive me?

If you sent an email it may take me a bit to get back to you, my inbox is a MESS. As for comments I hope to have them all answered by later today and into tomorrow.

I always love talking to you so thank you so, so much for taking time out to express your interest in a product or to tell me what you are thinking about a review, etc……I greatly appreciate everything each of you have to say.

Cheers!

Talk to you soon in the comment box, plus more reviews coming at you later on! All written up and scheduled to post soonish.

Pieces of Life: Twitter Your Favorite Beauty Bloggers

tweet

We all have favorite beauty bloggers don’t we? I know I do. Just because I write this strange and unusual blog doesn’t mean I’m not also as obsessed as many of you are about reading my favorite blogs!

A few weeks ago I showed you some great beauty brands (Missed the post? Click here!) that twitter and today I’ll show you some of my favorite beauty bloggers (and some of yours too I bet) who are twitting happily away!

Why follow your fav bloggers? It’s fun! You can talk to them, ask them questions, follow their daily posts as many of them have a Twitter feed that updates their daily posts, plus it’s a personal experience with the writer and editor. Reading posts is one thing but getting to know your favorite blogger and have one on one chats with them is a cool experience.

You can find my favorite beauty bloggers that I stalk on twitter below!

My mate Rows from Cosmetic Candy Twitters happily away with the masses.

If polish is your game check out the Muse’s bud, Michelle, from All Lacquered Up!

The Swatch queen of the Internet, Karla Sugar is a Twitter fan as well!

I dunno if you’d call Pink a beauty blogger but she occasionally throws in a beauty post or two in between posts of cussing like a pirate, her keen sense of fashion, and lots of food and still manages to stay slim and gorgeous! Follow this chica!

One of my fav bloggers and a real sweetie, Carla, from Product Girl is hanging out on Twitter.

Who doesn’t freaking love my mate E from Pursebuzz? She buzzes beauty and donuts on Twitter (if you follow her you’ll understand all about the donuts).

Erika from Makeup Bag (first beauty blog I ever really read) is on Twitter…if you’re lucky you can witness cool Janey pic posts on occasion (the Muse thinks Janey might need her own blog).

Christine aka Temptalia, Queen of all MAC is a Twitter, who doesn’t want to follow the Queen of MAC? Hasn’t MAC given this girl her own collection yet?!

Missy from In My Professional Opinion is a Makeup Artist and a Beauty Blogger, follow her up!

Jami from Bionic Beauty is a Twitter-a-Holic and geeky, must be why the Muse and her get on so well! Follow up with her! You’re liable to get plenty of hawt Rob Pattinson pictures in with yout beauty!

The Muse likes cookies, especially cute ones like Lilan from The Daily Cookie. The Cookie and the Muse go way back! Follow her!

Last but never least, the Muse’s little sis, Plue (she’s sick at the moment with the flu, wish her well!) is busying tweet, tweet, tweetin’ when she’s not sick that is!

As I said Twittering with your fav bloggers is a fun way to interact with them and get to know them on a more personal level. Some bloggers work from home and others work from work so we are all on at some point during the day and willing to chat about makeup, the weather, or what we are doing!

Looking forward to seeing you on Twitter peeps!
