What’s news today? My Tuesday is flowing along quite nicely today. I just got some nice news about a review I did which will be popping up somewhere shortly, kinda chuffed properly about that. Aside from that it’s the normal hum-drum Tuesday! Can’t wait for T-Day so I can stuff myself full of turkey…ok that was so a lie…I HATE turkey haha but I’ll dig into everything else thanks very much.
I was planning to do my Gift Guides after Thanksgiving actually but more and more people have e-mailed asking after them so I figure this means everyone is in full gift getting mode.
Today I’m covering cheap Christmas gifts. This is my guide to getting some great steals and deals on makeup, skincare, and more, all with really lower price tags so you can have a little spare change after the Holidays to indulge in all those semi-annual sales!
Christmas is on sale this year!
Jump for it!
Gather around kids time to steal some goodies from Trish McEvoy, Smashbox, and Giorgio Armani.

As you know this month I am all about thinking pink! I’m trying quite hard to raise both awareness and money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation which is my charity of choice for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So far I’ve raised $21 and have plans of donating $200 of my own personal funds to the cause. I was originally doing a Comment 4 the Cure post which would donate a dollar each time someone posted a comment but I fear everyone got somewhat wrapped up in the giveaway I was doing and forgot to put a comment in that post. My donation of $200 still remains firm if you do or do not comment but I hope you will consider placing a comment in that post.
To those who have taken a minute out and donated a $1 or more thank you VERY much. I greatly appreciate it and it’s going to a good cause.
All the giveaways I’m doing this month will run until October 31 and a winner will be randomly selected from those who entered and alerted via email.
Today I’m thinking pink with the limited edition Smashbox Pout Lipstick which is a beautiful way that Smashbox is giving back. Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Pout will raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. With each purchase of this lipstick a 40% portion of the proceeds will be donated to Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The lipstick is a baby doll pink shade which is quite mod. It has a custom sleeve which was inspired by the Fashion for the Cure benefit. The color is highly sought after currently and quite surprisingly talked about on all the makeup forums I visit.
The Muse has teamed up with Smashbox to giveaway one Pout Lipstick to a lucky winner. In order to enter you can do a few things.

I think I was in the 8th grade when I first started watching 90210 and that was only because Luke Perry was considered crazy hotness in the 90’s. I do know that I never quite got fully “into” it but only watched it a few times because I believe at the time my mum deemed it too racy or some such nonsense.
Moral of the story is I started watching the revamp of 90210 last season because I was trying to relive some part of my youth I suppose. Turns out the show is a train wreck that I haven’t been able to keep my eyes off of since. It’s awful. The actors are all annoying, the story plots are absurd, and it’s complete cheese whiz…but I continue to watch for some reason.
This is getting rather long but I’m telling you this because have you so noticed that they went all budget on the show? Like what happened to the parents? They cut them out almost completely. And Kelly? Practically gone. And the great big Hollywood home…finished. 90210 is getting the economy treatment if ever I did see it. Thank god CW hasn’t cut down on Supernatural otherwise someone would have to hear me whine about it.
You know what else is getting economized this year? Makeup! But unlike 90210 that’s a good deal as far as this Muse is concerned.

Tis the most wonderful time of the year! Well, actually, if I’m being technical I’m thinking Fall is actually the most wonderful time of the year……what do you think? Halloween or Christmas? I lean towards Halloween as the bestest time of the year and Christmas sliding in a close second.
