The Muse Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

pink ribbon image

Hey there, hi there!

I’m a little slow today getting reviews out but I wanted to do another quick give away in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I felt a bit pressured and rushed this month getting reviews out and I’ve been quite swamped with just about everything else so my blog hasn’t taken part in much of the goings on for Breast Cancer Awareness.

This doesn’t mean that I have forgotten, far from it. Although I haven’t personally been effected by this disease my heart still goes out to those who have had to personally deal with it or who have had friends or family members effected by it.

Allow me to direct you to a few members of The Beauty Blog Network who are currently working hard at raising money for this worthy cause. Please visit the Beauty Blog Network to find out more information and how you can make a personal donation to this cause.

After careful consideration I decided I wouldn’t be doing a chip in post this year for donations as I felt a tad bit too rushed to take it all on however I have made a personal donation. If you’d like to support the Muse’s charity of choice you can visit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and make your donation, small or large, every little bit takes us one step towards a cure.

You can also help with the cause by purchasing “Pink” themed products from such companies as Estee Lauder who donate partial or all proceeds of purchases to Cancer Research!

I’m having a small give away on this post as well. You can comment below to enter and I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month. If you win you’ll receive an Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Pin!

As always my contests are open to both US and International readers!

Good Luck and I’ll hope you’ll consider making a small donation to some charity this month to help make a path towards a brighter future for cancer research!

Philosophy Snowman Shower Gel

Holy Christmas Batman!

I said it before, I’ll say it again, it’s way too bloody early for me to be talking about Holiday and Winter Collections!

Sad sigh!

I want to just enjoy the Fall season a little while longer! Ow well if you’re feeling a bit Christmas-like this beautiful Fall afternoon you might want to head over to QVC and type in item number A86813 and lay your eyes on this:

philosophy+the+snowman


Tis Philosophy’s Snowman 3 in 1 Shower Gel! We had the Milk Man, we had the Ice Cream Man, we had the Gingerbread Man…lord knows Philosophy is running out of men to give us! Now they are gifting us with The Snowman!

This is the super-size, 32oz, available exclusively from QVC for $22.49 USD. I personally haven’t seen this little guy anywhere else and it’s possible we may not see him anywhere else for a while!

So if you want him, you’ll have to head over to QVC to nab him!

I’m not sure I’ll purchase him as the reviews I’ve read seem to say he may spell like Philosophy The Gingerbread Man even though his description reads that he’s fresh and frosty!

Hmmm remains to be seen I guess!

We shall see if the Muse gives in to her urges and nabs some Philosophy The Snowman for her very self!

For now you can visit QVC and read the reviews for yourself and come back to tell me what you think!

Want him for yourself?

Tell the Muse!

Ralph Lauren Notorious Review

I’m always so terrible with my fragrance reviews but I couldn’t help but want to test out and review Ralph Lauren Notorious for you this week!

Picture+115

It’s been a while in between my Ralph Lauren purchases and normally I indulge in his “fun” scents like Ralph, Ralph Rocks, Etc….however I took a step way up the ladder of sophication when I tried out Ralph Lauren Notorious for the first time last week! It’s seen been a staple fragrance in my wardrobe for the over a week since using it.

It is an Eau de Parfum which makes the staying power fantastically long wearing while lingering throughout the day and into the night! Two squirts pretty much gets me well into the evening which is especially good considering how my body chemistry sucks up fragrance extremely quick leading me to have to re-touch up throughout the day.

The scent is a very provocative, oriental blend that has traces of fresher notes like Italian Bergamot and Vanilla. It’s sophisticated enough for evening wear but manages to keep a lighter side that’s perfectly lovely for a work day as well. I was slightly frightened of the drydown notes of patchouli however it remains timelessly elegant.

The price is affordable at $45 USD for a 1 oz bottle of Eau de Parfum and the scent is works very well as a day or evening fragrance! All in all Ralph Lauren Notorious definately gets my seal of approval for purchase! Even thought it’s outside my normal, I really liked this one alot and Muse Approve it for purchase!
