Happy Holidays with Love from the Muse

Happy Holidays 2011

Dear friends,

My holiday wish for you is that you have someone special to spend it with be it your friends, your husband, family, your puppy, your sister, etc….the Holiday is a great time for good food, lovely gifts, and other goodies but the most important part of it all is sharing it with your loved one(s).

Remember it’s not about getting but giving and remembering to share the love in your heart with others be it someone close to you or a complete stranger that you offer a comforting smile to. Please always try to love yourself and each other.

Thank you for making everyday on Musings a good day. I’m always utterly humbled that I’m not talking to myself around here but have a ton of very lovely people who read what I say daily. Thanks for joining me in my makeup world and life, I sincerely couldn’t do it with out all of you to inspire and motivate me.

I wish you and yours the Happiest, Warmest, Brightest Holiday Season full of adventures through time and space (*wink*)! I hope you are surrounded by wonderful people to share it with, that Santa is extra good to you, and you have a successful, wonderful New Year ahead!

I’ll talk to you all really soon!

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance Review, Swatches, Photos

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance 5

Laura Mercier only you could make me a believer that a glowing, radiance primer is brilliant.

Typically I avoid glowy, pearly foundation, bb cream, and primer products. I have a full, round face and adding glow to it just makes me look odd.

So I did head into my Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer with feet dragging and caution in the wind.

I came out of the experience pleasantly surprised.
