Another Box of Goodies for the Muse from Taryn!

My reader and friend Taryn got a beautiful haul of goodies from JPMon a few weeks ago! I actually blogged about it, you can click here to refresh your memory and read about her haul!

One of the items she was very excited about was the Fairy Drops Mascara. I got hyped over this as well after seeing the unique brush it came with and was eager to do my own order!

Before I could do an order Taryn was offering up her extra mascara to me! *blush* She sent it over with a TON of extra goodies that totally made me sniff! She was amazingly generous and sweet to put such a lovely package together for me and I wanted to show off some of what she sent me!

All my awesome goodies!

Treats from Row

After getting back from the airport this morning, prior to heading to work, I hopped in the shower, got dressed, and sat down to sort mail!

Much to my surprise and delight a little parcel from England was in with the lot of boring bills, catalogs, and other garbage mail!

Hmmm what could this be!?

Tearing it open out poured a ton of great things! Lush soaps, Soap and Glory Lipgloss, Molton Brown Lotion, sweets, and much more!

Oh my it felt like Christmas!

I was particularly fixated on the rather large chunk of Lily Savon soap I was holding in my hand as I’ve been dying to try it and haven’t yet! It smelled so good that I held it to my nose during the duration of reading the card and letter tucked into the parcel!

Turns out my beautiful goodies was thanks to my most lovely mate Rowene.

So this is a HUGE thank you to a very gorgeous friend for making my day brighter when jet lag was setting in!

Your thoughtfulness totally made me happy!

I’m utterly chuffed to have great pieces of Lush Miranda and Lily Savon gracing my shower! I was so eager to use Lily Savon that I ended up washing my hands with it just so I could try it! I’m a big fan of Miranda and haven’t had any around in a good long while as mailorder UK has a knack for being out of stock everytime I order!

One item that happens to not be in the pic is the Boots Eye Gel she sent which is now totally rocking my world for depuffing my tired eyes today! I’ll be reviewing the lipgloss (been wanting to try Soap and Glory for AGESSSSSSSSSS), the soaps, and the eye gel very soon!

The card from Rows that’s gracing my fridge door! How cute!

The Curly Wurly soon disappeared after this pic! Both actually…and a little bit after that the Black Jack made an exit as well! My tummie is in heaven as I haven’t had a Curly Wurly in a good long while!

Sadly the sweets that the Muse sent to Row have been gobbled down by Row’s evil boyfriend! icon wink

Thanks Rows! I’m lucky to have such a great mate like you! You sincerely made my day with your sweetness!

Ramblings About A Delightfully Broken Resolution!

Picture+483

Well….

I broke one of my resolutions (See my New Year’s resolutions by clicking here) last week when I ordered Coffee Prince from YesAsia.com but I’m not taking responsible as I was tempted by two evil readers to watch this! It’s their fault not mine! Hehe!

I couldn’t wait to get it as it released the 15th, so I ended up going to Book Off (It’s a Japanese Media Store that sells used books, DVD’s, general Manga, etc….) and purchasing the set from them and canceling my online order. It was lucky they even had it as they don’t always get in the latest K-Dramas plus it was an early release (I ended up watching some of this while on the plane to California)!

I’d like to thank those two readers, Humming and HT, for the great recommendation as Coffee Prince is wonderful so far! I watched the first 5 episodes and I have to say it’s quite darling within the first few hours so I can imagine how great it’ll be as the story progresses! This is working it’s way onto my favorite list pretty fast and I can’t wait to sit down and watch the rest of it (the entire series is 17 episodes so I’ll be busy for a while!).

The subtitles are high quality on this so if you’re purchasing the English version have no fear in that direction! One minor complaint is the subtitles are running by really quickly so I find myself rewinding a bit. I’m sure as I watch more I’ll adjust to the quickness and I really can’t rant too much at all since the quality of the subtitling is excellent with the English DVD version (Although I did catch a few times where they referred to “her” instead of “he” and I’m wondering if that was intentional!??!)! Aside from that the box set was really beautiful and well worth the price (as all Asian box sets are)! I believe they had a special press of the DVD box set but I went with the regular one. It was quite a bargain at $79.99 USD as YesAsia was selling it for $99.99 USD!

Yoon Eun Hye is absolutely adorable in this and I was shocked to see her hair cut so short! She can totally pass for a young boy! After seeing her in Palace and watching her in this it’s difficult to wrap my brain around the character she’s playing in Coffee Prince! She presents herself in such a way it’s easy enough to mistake her sex, I find the illusion of her gender especially easy enough to believe as I do not speak or understand Korean so the expression and tones are lost on me. If she is using a feminine tone I wouldn’t notice at all as I’m not familiar with the language enough to catch it so I can easily sit back and see her as a male character without a problem. The tomboy role has been done before with actress/singer Jang Nara in My Love Patzzi but Yoon Eun Hye takes the role of a tomboy and totally turns it on its ear! Gong Yoo looks as gorgeous as ever in this and he counteracts on Yoon Eun Hye’s character so well! The two of them make the ideal, beautiful gay couple (If only Yoon Eun was actually male that is)! Truly they compliment each other wonderfully, one built and tall, while the other is petite and short!

It’s also really nice to sit down to a K-Drama that doesn’t have anyone dying (at least I don’t think anyone will) or having some terminal disease! It’s also refreshing to do away with the jealous character as well. (someone had mentioned the same in a comment on my New Year’s resolution post! I must say I don’t mind the jealous character but it’s rather nice to get away from it for a while and just enjoy a funny love story!) K-Dramas can be a little too typical sometimes! This seems to be a really nice romantic comedy! My head can do without the depressing bits and my heart can really enjoy the laughter and love! I burst out laughing quite a few times already(APOLOGIZE! APOLOGIZE!) especially with the “blind date” who had hairy under arms! I was also smirking during the shopping spree and the dressing up of Yoon Eun’s character in a suit! Very cute scene!

Kim Jae Wook happens to be in this as well which is no great chore on my eyes by any means. His girlish good looks make me swoon (and of course his character probably plays off of his looks, we shall see!)! He’s only part of the supporting cast but really just seeing him in passing will be wonderful to behold as he’s fantastic eye candy! I think maybe the appeal and beauty of bish?nen is lost on most sadly (but definately not on me!!!!!)! He’s too yummie for mere words! He is by all means Muse Approved. Can I haz him on a plate pleaze?

Anyway…..quite off the topic of cosmetics today aren’t I?

I just wanted to say thanks to my two readers for recommending this! I love it so far!

Anyone watch it?

Want to see it?

It’s definately not makeup but Coffee Prince is most definitely Muse Approved for purchase! You’ll want your own copy so you can watch it again and again (I haven’t even seen it all yet but I can obviously see it’s going to be a favorite!)!

This one was well worth breaking my resolution for!
