Pieces of Life
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!
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:
Yup, yup the Muse’s shopping list is already changed to reflect the ravishing of Edward! She’ll save you the leftovers!
Yes, I wonder that on occasion…can’t help myself the Cullen’s have changed the way I view baseball!
Only in Edward’s case!
The Muse is a car/motorcycle person and totally appreciates the cracky Volvo fun!
For those of you who just can’t decide!
Love Edward as a little kawaii manga!
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!

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

Happy Halloween from my Haunted House to yours!
This post is a long time coming………….
You might know I’m a serious rocker (or not. I’m alot of things you don’t know hehe!). I adore vintage rock in a big way.
I was heartbroken when AC/DC decided to sell out to Walmart. Yeah, sorry if you had to hear about it on my blog but it’s true. AC/DC has sold out to Walmart.
It’s all quite true.
AC/DC hasn’t released in album in nearly 7 years or so but they decided it would be a SUPER duper idea to release one exclusively to Walmart. But why Muse for the love of god WHY!?
I wondered the same thing.
Turns out Walmart just brought three million copies of the album in one go. Great deal for AC/DC no waiting to actually sell the CD, it’s sold already, all three million, to of all places, Walmart.
Did I mention I hate Walmart? Walmart is a drain on economy among other evils that I won’t begin to get into.
I choose to remember bands like AC/DC as they were so no I won’t indulge in an exclusive Walmart CD by AC/DC no matter how I love them or how great the CD is.
But honestly, in all seriousness, how good could this CD possibly be if Walmart will be carrying it?
Go buy the latest AC/DC CD at Walmart! Hardcore! You can insert a picture of me rolling my eyes here. Is my sarcasm thick enough for you?
To add insult to injury and to pour salt in my already open wound I proceeded to read about how Guns n’ Roses is rumored to be releasing a new album to Walmart too.
Has the world gone mad?
Has hell frozen over and I wasn’t sent the memo?
Next thing you know KISS will be doing a song for a Disney movie!
Who knows maybe Walmart will exhume Joey Ramone for a single. Stranger things are obviously happening as is what’s one more step for those wild and crazy rockers at Walmart.
Indeed these are some things to consider.
It’s when these bands go off the drugs and enter the land of the sober that the bad decisions begin to happen.
Remember kids it’s best to stay on drugs, wreck hotel rooms, bed tons of fan girls, and act wild and crazy but don’t sell out to Walmart. The Muse no likey that idea at all.
This is a public servant announcement from a die hard rock fan.
I will mention that it appears Guns N’ Roses will be releasing Chinese Democracy without the aid of Walmart….praise Jeebus maybe someone is listening up there! However, we won’t BEGIN to get involved in all the problems with Axl’s aging or the fact that Slash and Duff are no shows….that’s a blog for another day!
I leave you with good music that hasn’t been touched by the evil empire!
