Musings of the Day: Say It Loud, Say It Proud, I Buy Makeup Because of the Pretty Packaging!

packaging 1

Ribbons, pink packaging, silver paper, pretty iconic Japanese characters (Hello Kitty), pink, blue, floral motifs, butterflies……you name, I’ll buy it, if it’s pretty!

My best friend Jamie says I should be terribly, down right ashamed to purchase makeup, skincare, and beauty bits and bobs…just “because they are pretty…” She claims it’s wasteful, irresponsible, and just plain silly.

Do you think I should quit this friendship? Seems unhealthy right? Only kidding Jame I lurve you but you simply don’t understand at all!

Are you ashamed of purchasing makeup just because you like the pink box it comes in? Or the pretty blue bottle with the flowers around it?

My Beauty Diary Brightening Mask Set and My Beauty Diary Brightening Mask Set Review

When I was 12 or so I kept a diary. I remember it was a small pink Hello Kitty Diary with a lock and key. Of course, I wrote everything that was of great import in my life at the time in it. At 12 I imagine it was some serious stuff. When I was 18 or so I recall reading back into it and smiling at the babblings of my 12 year old self. Granted, I had to literally splice open the journal to get inside because lord knows where I put the bloody key and honestly why I wanted to lock away any of those babblings is beyond me.

I’ve since grown up and in some ways my diary has become Musings of a Muse but I guess the closest I get to an actual diary these days are My Beauty Diary Masks.
