The Muse Heads to the MacWorld Expo!

Forget that geeky kid that dates Drew Barrymore! The new spokesperson for Apple should be Gackt!


Anyway, your Muse is abandoning you again for a few days! Forgive me? The last time I left, one of my readers, Mandy (whom you must all know by now!) proclaimed that “the kids forgot what I looked like” while I was gone! Sadly, they may just forget again as I’m leaving you all again for a few days (you could have a case against me for divorce here! Although, I’ll fight you all to the death as no way am I giving up half my cosmetic collection!).

Don’t forget me too much k? *sniff*

I’m on my way to sunny California this time (well maybe not sunny!) to pay homage to Apple. This conference consists of a smaller group of people then what you’d find at CES and we all bow low to our leader Steve Jobs while salivating over any bones Apple throws our way.

Many geeks consider Macworld the poor man’s (poor man is used loosely as you have to have major bucks to keep up with Apple’s ever revolving technology!) CES but I rather enjoy it! Sadly, many Mac users are forced into the Winblows environment whether we want it or not. I myself run a dual boot with Winblows on one partition, FreeBSD on another, and most importantly, Leopard on my main boot.

If it was up to the Muse the world would run on a distro and we’d happily go about life! But sadly that’s just not the case (I may be carrying most of my OS on a thumb drive soon after seeing MS Office released for the MAC! Someone gag me please! This be a marriage most revolting!).


The good news is while I am in San Fran I’ll be visiting and staying with my very good friend Alyssi! She’ll be joining me on my adventures! I haven’t seen her in at least 9 months now so it’ll be good to catch up with her!

Items I’m looking forward to:

All of the MacLabs are sold out but lucky enough I have planned ahead and gotten into a fair few!

The 15th, Jobs will be doing his yearly keynote and again, I’m very excited about what he’ll be saying!

I have quite a packed schedule for the very few days I’ll be there and I hope to get it all done! I’d love to stay longer but sadly work calls me back so I can’t be away too long!

I’ll miss you all and I’ll be back shortly with updates 😉


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Hi there, Muse!

    I finally saw your comment on my blog and I felt bad I never replied you. Sorry about that! I just recently found your blog through Iris’s, so now I learned too you are a MAC fan 😀 Very nice. Winblows indeed.

    Hiiii Musey! How are you this new year?? I’m doing great over here! Last Friday was my birthday so we had some friends over and it was lovely! Add sushi and champagne and that was my evening! So much fun.

    Loads of hugs to you!!!

  • MandyPandy

    Forget Drew; that geeky kid from Apple should totally date Gackt. Gackt’s prettier and more feminine.

    Wait, what, you’re leaving?!? It’s over! See you in court! Forget the kids, I’ll wage bitter and protacted custody battle for your bitchin’ DVD collection! *rubs greedy hands together*

    Hi Muse!

    I’ve never been to one of those Apple thing before. Do they have the new stuff on display somewhere? Did you ever get your hands on one of those Macbook (or is it Powerbook) Air? Eno (my hubby) is drooling all over his desk for that itty bitty little thing!

    I guess I’ll be reading your blog daily now 😀


  • rocketqueen

    Oh no worries! Hope you don’t think I’m being rude or anything because I haven’t commented here for a while! I read everything but have been the worst in commenting lately!

    Yaay, I had the best b-day ever! Thank you! Did I mention I got four very wonderful red wines from my SO? He’s so nice!

    A RQ order for the Muse: Do NOT, I repeat NOT, be stressed over feeling you have to reply soon! You reply when you have the time dear! I feel with you!

    Oooh, um, I think it’s sushi time again for me! Headed for Japan…yum! Talk to you soon sweetie!

    Lots of love and hugs!!

    Hi Dalenna!

    Yes! The MAC site has been updated with everything that was introduced at the MAC Expo 🙂 You can visit it here: http://www.apple.com

    I have a powerbook currently as my main lappie and I actually prebooked a new airbook but I decided to cancel the order as I’m all for jumping on new Apple products prior to hearing the review! So I convinced myself to wait a bit and hear the reviews before purchasing 🙂 As I’m hearing about pros and cons of the airbook at the moment! It sure is yummie looking and I can understand why your husband is drooling over it! So am I!

    I seen it at the expo and I have to tell you that it’s thee most beautiful piece of equipment! So gorgeous! I’m really happy about the update to itunes as well! I’m excited to try it out when it goes live as I have an Apple TV that I purchased last year and I think I’ll utilize it more with this update to itunes!

    Aw I’m glad you’ll be visiting more often! I look forward to speaking to you!


    Tell your husband to wait on the air like me as we need a few reviews before settling 😉
