Hey there!

Just a note, I had to approve 700+ comments today. I didn’t get a chance to reply to them all. I’m so, so sorry. I try to keep up to date on them but it gets difficult at times and they end up overwhelming as new ones come in and older ones fail to get approved and replied to.

Please forgive me!

If it was anything important and I didn’t reply please feel free to comment again and I’ll do my very best to get to it.

I hope you understand that running Musings by myself is sometimes a job and a half so things get tricky when it comes to replying to every single e-mail and comment.

But it doesn’t mean I don’t love you all and I hope you’ll continue to comment, it’s the greatest reward to get a comment!

Have a great weekend and feel free to say hey in this post, consider it a open thread of sorts.


P.S. Something is up with Vincent Longo…pick up the May issue of Lucky…sale maybe?! I have to grab a copy and see what the scoop is!


Slatkin & Co. American Boardwalk Collection Summer 2012

So, I had to go therapy after Christmas because I overindulged in Slaktkin & Co. Candles….recently, I had to seek more help when they release like 1,000 new scents.

I think I fought the good fight and made it out alive because I haven’t indulged in a single candle from the Spring 2012 Collection. Phew, can someone get me a tissue I need to wipe the sweat off my brow.

I dunno how long I can hold out though as the new Slatkin & Co. Boardwalk Collection is set to launch soon.

Almay Smart Shade Balance Pressed Powder is a mattifying powder that promises to instantly transform into your ideal shade.


But let’s face it, we’ve been around the block, we know these things typically do not work.


Are You Misting Yourself Madly or Is It Madly Misting Yourself? How Many Facial Mists Are in Your Beauty Stash Anyway?

At some point, someone will pop into my bathroom, bedroom, or fridge and see the lot of facial mists I’m hoarding and call me out on it.

Normally it begins with, “WTF!?”

And ends with me explaining how I REALLY need all these facial mists, how they are so essential to my beauty regime, how my skin might shrivel off my face and die if I don’t mist it madly…

How many facial mists does one beauty junkie need anyway?
