Down the Rabbit Hole: The Muse’s Fav Alice in Wonderland Curiosities and Beauty Picks

Alice Beauty

The Muse is a big time literary geek and one of fav books is Through the Looking Glass but of course I’d like to sit here and tell you about my great love of the book but even I can admit I simply want to see Alice in Wonderland because of the Johnny Depp…who doesn’t?

With the introduction of Alice in Wonderland being adapted to the big screen we get flooded with an absurd amount of merchandise and most important fun beauty bits and bobs.

Here’s some of my top beauty picks (and some not beauty related) to celebrate the release of Alice in Wonderland today!

Philosophy Amazing Grace Hand Wash

Grace is such a trashy little thing getting involved in makeup, shower gels, lotions, perfumes…She really spreads herself around doesn’t she?

Now she’s available in a hand wash….geez!

Philosophy Amazing Grace Hand Wash

Oh Amazing Grace how sweet you are in your new hand wash formula. Philosophy Amazing Grace Hand Wash is the newest product to get dosed in the popular cult scent from Philosophy.

This sulfate-free, moisturizing hand wash gently cleanses hands with white tea extract, panthenol, and aloe to help soothe and condition the skin.

I’m not much of an Amazing Grace fan to be honest so I can probably safely skip this one but what about you?

Amazing Grace fan?

Loving the idea of a hand wash in the scent?

Tell the Muse!

Sneak Peek: MAC Riveting Photos and Review

MAC Riveting 1

I was born in the ahem…err…the 70’s. So technically my age of music fell into the 90’s as these were my teen/tween years but like most things in my life, my taste in music was and still is as unconventional as all hell. My sister was an 80’s child and from her I learned to appreciate some great one hit wonders from the early and late 80’s, this was music at it’s best. I was probably six when I developed my first crush on Robert Smith and it’s carried through many a year, thank you 1980’s.

Mind you Robert circa 1980’s was fantastic but not so much when you jump forward over 20 years….it’s ok though, I’ll take him anyway I can get him.

The new MAC Riveting Collection hits the shelf in a few weeks and brings about that retro 80’s glam feel for me with a bit of rock n’ roll thrown in for good measure.

Not everyone can pull off MAC Riveting but I imagine half of us are going to have a bloody great time trying.

Jump for a sneak peek of MAC Riveting!

Backstage with Sally Hansen at Tracy Reese and All Lacquered Up

As you know the Muse doesn’t cover much in the way of nails over here but she was quite excited to see her good mate Michelle from All Lacquered Up featured in the Backstage with Sally Hansen video. The video features nail trends during Fashion Week 2009 and has a great recap of the show with interviews from Tracy Reese, Gabrielle Union, Michelle from All Lacquered Up. Michelle is looking lovely and all in the know with the trends she spotted this season, you’d think by now the Muse would have picked up a thing or two about good nails from her….oye, I need to work on these poor nails.

You can read more about the backstage show and the trendy nails at the show by visiting www.alllacqueredup.com
