Monday Blues

Morning guys!

I’m having a super busy Monday morning and everything that can go wrong…Murphy’s Law… is going wrong.

I’m quite happy that I had such a ridiculously lazy day yesterday which made me nice and well rested to deal with my nutty Monday! It’s been a while since I slept in so I did just that and enjoyed re-watching some of Sweet 18 on DVD and just generally vegetating. I can’t remember the last time I just stayed home on a Sunday and lazed!

How was your weekend?

I’ll be posting up new reviews shortly but I’m a little behind getting to them! Keep your eyes peeled though as they’ll be here soon. I’m very backed up with e-mail so if you e-mailed I do apologize if I haven’t replied. I have about 800 some odd e-mails in my box at the moment and catching up is a nightmare to say the least. If you need an answer right away to whatever you may have e-mailed just comment and I’ll reply quicker or twitter me! I also have a few comments to get to from last week and this weekend, I’ll get to those soon!

Just wanted to update you for today and hope you aren’t missing your daily dose of Musings too much!

Much love and hugs from your Muse!

Happy Monday!

Happy Thanksgiving from the Muse

Hey Guys!

I was busy baking since I got home from work and I’m about to head to a mock Thanksgiving with some close friends. Sheesh, it’s been a busy week of various Thanksgiving dinners with different friends.

I wanted to quickly wish everyone and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving! Don’t forget to be thankful for the little things in life and for special people in your lives. The Muse is thankful for many things and of course very thankful for each of you who stop by daily to read my insanity here at Musings and offer a kind comment or a lovely e-mail (and remind me I’m not talking to myself around here but a rather large group of friendly people!)! I truly appreciate you all and I’m very thankful that you’ve touched my life in some way or form!

I’ll see you all Monday with brand new reviews and exciting new products but until then I wish each of you and your close ones a very Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving!

More Musings of Edward Cullen

It’s getting to be that special time of the month soon kids! The 21st is around the corner and the Muse and many of her friends (even my newly converted sister) are very eager for the date to arrive! I told my sister she has to be on Team Jacob teehee the Muse be evil but there are just TOO many Team Edward players! Sorry the Muse wants the Edward all for herself! Get ye to the Team Jacob field!

Last Sunday morning my friend Jai, Kenningston, Jenn, Kira and myself hauled ass to Torrid, Hot Topic, and anywhere else in the Mall that had Twilight gear. We ended up snatching up several T-Shirts, patches, totes, and various other paraphernalia which we proceeded to take home and chop up over Sunday brunch to make several hoodies with. But of course the Muse is a Team Edward player so her hoodie is all ABOUT Edward!

I’m not going to show you how it came out just yet as I’m still working on it but be prepared for the unveiling soon! My best friend Jai is also a Team Edward player and his hoodie came out particularly brilliant with sequins and other glittery bits and bobs. Gotta love the dazzle and Edward right?

The moral of the story is that you don’t have to get too particularly crazy and start making hoodies out of chopped up t-shirts when you can get some already made at Cafe Press! The Muse seen some seriously awesome stuff on the site and highly suggest skipping over for a lookiee and a purchase for the big night! Users got really creative with some of the gear available for sale and some items made me laugh! Gotta love the rabid fan girls right? I mean there are over 130,000 designs at Cafe Press….You. Gotta. Love. That.

CLICK to visit the Twilight Cafe Press!

Here’s some that caught my eye in particular:

‘Nuff Said!

Awwww….sniff…so romantic!

The moral of this story is that the Muse is a sad, old fan girl! Hehe and loving it too! Cheers to my rabid fan girls and hope for the best as the Muse is slightly worried it won’t live up to all the hype but at least we can relieve it in our imaginations!

Remember kids, all good things Twilight, Edward, and Cullen is Muse Approved!

Sephora Haulin’

I came, I saw, I conquered Sephora’s Friend & Family Sale!

W00t!

I ended up doing all my own personal purchases and gift purchases for friends and family on the same order. I normally like keeping them seperate because I like to budget my own purchases but this year I just gobbed it all together!

Sadly, it wasn’t as thrilling as it would be if I wasn’t a blogger. I tend to end up purchasing things way early so I can get reviews up here. If I waited for Sephora FF I’d be WAY late on reviews so I just indulge early! But I did get a few items that had my eye and will review them all for you when they arrive of course!

Here’s the final list (I think that’s all of it!):

Kate Von D Rock n Roll Eyeshadow in Air Guitar and Confessional
NARS Single Eyeshadow in Emmanuelle
Korres Eyeshadow in 24S Gold
Korres Sugar Plums Gift Set
Stila Eyeshadow Duo in Terracotta
Bare Escentuals Extreme Glimmers Kit
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Persepolis and Mediteranee
YSL Bow Lip Palette

I won’t be posting gifts I brought as my friends and some family members read my blog! Don’t wanna ruin the surprise!

How about you?

Whatcha haul?

Tell the Muse!
