Hauled It! QVC Day of Beauty

If you’re a beauty junkie you probably already knew that QVC had an all day beauty event on Saturday. As tempting as it was to stay inside and just watch beauty on the tube, the weather was too nice to resist the temptation of outdoor play so this Muse Tivo’ed up everything that was on this Saturday and fast forwarded through it early this morning to get a peep at what she missed!


After fast forwarding briefly I came across two or three items I had to have but was somewhat relieved that it wasn’t a ton of must have items.

Here’s what I hauled:


I’m not sure why but I got a bit crazy with all the Laura Geller items offered. It seemed like such a good deal and the Kiss and Bake set. The few times I’ve tried Laura’s baked goodies they have always been a tad chalky but I decided what the heck, might as well re-try ‘em!

As for the Bobbi Brown, obviously you can see why I love these shadows plus I thought it wasn’t too bad a deal for all three.

I’m looking forward to scrolling through the rest of my Tivo’ed recordings to see what else was offered on Saturday!

What did you haul?

Share it!

Shout Out!


Sometimes the Muse will get sudden spurts of traffic incoming from her favorite hang out MUA. If you’re a beauty junkie you likely lurk over yonder as well.

About 75% of the time that traffic starts flowing in from MUA the user responsible for it is some chica nicked chix_nuggets.

This one’s for you chix!

Dear Miss Nugget.

You’re obviously my biggest fan and supporter and cheerleader and….and….! The moral of the story is thank you. Readers like you are why I do what I do. When I’m tired and I’m whining about having to take pictures or write an article or I don’t feel like blogging today, I remind myself that you and a million other people are here reading what I type daily and expecting something new to pop up on my little site.

Thank you, thank you for inspiring me with your excitement.

Your bubbly posts on MUA pimping out “the Muse” is truly a flattering experience.

Cheers mate!

And everyone else thank you too. You’re all very special.

Remember kids, the Muse sees all, reads all, and knows all.

Lush Sugar Scrubs

The Muse hopes by now that you discovered the joys of Buffy and may God help you if you haven’t. Hello, it’s Summer soon you want your legs, elbows, and knees in tip top shape right? Head to Lush and snag yourself a bar of the Muse’s favorite scrubby friend, Buffy and get to work!


Well don’t take my word for it! Watch this lovely British Lushie tell us all about the benefits of Buffy:


Aw isn’t he lovely?

See kids? Buffy is good for you. Anyway this is technically not a muse about Buffy, it’s about the brand new Sugar Scrubs from Lush!


Jump ahead for the deets!

Since the new Sugar Scrubs are along the same lines as my beloved Buffy, I’m of course quite excited about their release and already placed an order (Yes, Lush UK ships to the US) eep!

Available now from Lush UK each Sugar Scrub is 2.50 each.

These are a mix of bicarb and cream of tartar plus moisturizing coconut oil which solidifies the product into a buttery bar. Two flavors are available Sugar Babe and A. Sugar Scrub. Sugar Babe is a ylang flowers and mimosa blossom blend and A. Sugar Scrub is a fennel, ginger and lavender blend.


The Muse thinks these are perfect for scrubbing away all her nasty, dry skin from the harsh Winter while making it soft, moisturized, and pretty for Summer. Likey! If you do order, please remember to order now as they will melt in the warmer weather. Sadly, Lush Sugar Scrub is not vegan friendly.
