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.

Office Christmas 2

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.

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Perfecting Mineral Concentrate Review

Around the time I was turning 30, oh shut it, I so did not admit to being over 30….

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Perfecting Mineral Concentrate 4

Anyway.

A-hem….around this time I was a firm believer in NO powder under the eyes.  I swear when I hit 30 it was scary good times under my eyes, so dry, Sahara Desert dry, possibility of no water on Mars dry, someone did not fill up the Pur Water Pitcher dry…..you get the point right?

So yes no powder was allowed anywhere near my eyes around this time, it was bad.    Anytime I attempted getting powder near the area or tried setting my concealer with it, I’d end up aging myself 20 years or more.  All that dryness really made for a terrible time.

The good news is I discovered how to treat my aging eyes correctly and suddenly I’m a firm believer in powders especially brightening powders for under my eye area.

That’s why I got excited when I recently came across the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Perfecting Mineral Concentrate.

The Muse’s Gift Guide: 20 Palettes for $20 or Under

Muses Gift

I love gift cards.

Gift cards for holidays, birthdays, special occasions, I don’t care whatever it is I love ‘em. I like giving gift cards alot.

Ok, go on, you can say it. OMG Muse you impersonal biatch! But listen….my sister is the type of person that freaking has everything and alot of my friend’s are like that too. It’s really difficult settling on a gift for people like that so gift cards are so awesome. I really like the idea of giving someone a little extra cash to spend at their favorite store, it’s a rather great thing for the receiver in my humblest.

Now to some extent I agree they are kinda impersonal which is why I always try to spice up the gift card with a small gift or little goodies to make up for the impersonal aspect of the card itself.

Here are 20 GREAT palette ideas that are $20 and under which would be great to stuff in a stocking, give as a small gift to people, or to accompany with a gift card.
