Off to Vegas for CES!

Hello pretties!

I’m off to Vegas for CES! Sadly, CES has nothing for the cosmetic lover to muse over however if you happen to be a geek, like the Muse, you’ll be happy to read all about my adventures when I get home! Don’t worry part of my adventure will consist of hitting the MAC Pro store in Vegas while I’m there so it won’t all be about geeky bits!

I go to CES, Macworld, and Defcon (and other geeky conferences I won’t mention here for fear of appearing too much like the nerd I am) almost ever year. This year I’m unable to be away too long from my office due to our renewal season being so amazingly busy! So I’ll be away for two days only minor correction it’ll actually be 4 days if you count the weekend (contrary to popular belief I don’t blog all day! I have to earn my crust somehow and blogging about cosmetics just doesn’t cut it. I actually own and operate my own insurance offices with my sister riding shotgun!).

Some exciting info about CES:

Yoko Ono will be there! I’m one of the few surviving fans (and Paul McCartney’s a fan too! There’s a joke in there somewhere if you’re quick enough to catch my weird sense of humor!) of the Plastic Ono Band! In my weird musical tastes I somehow see the Plastic Ono band as a musical masterpiece! I’m excited to just meet Yoko Ono as I believe she’s responsible for some of John’s better work contrary to the fans that are calling blasphemy at the moment! If you’re a Beatle fan you (like me) probably have a healthy love hate relationship with Yoko Ono so saying she’s responsible for some of John’s best work is ok to admit!

Let’s see who else….Natasha Bedingfield and Mary J. Blige! I’m throwing names out that I think you’ll know because if I start flinging geeks at you chances are you’re going to say “who the hell is she talking about?”.

I haven’t quite dug into my schedule yet and I’m not entirely sure what’s going on during what dates and what I’ll be able to fit in and what I’ll miss but I can tell you a few items that I’m hoping to catch up with while there!

High-Performance Audio & Home Theater Exhibits
Keynote Addresses
Gaming Exhibits
Emerging Technology Exhibits
Keynote with Winblows Creator Bill Gates (There would be another joke in that!)
Jerry Yang is doing some sort of keynote speech as well I believe which I’d like to see!
CNET’s Best of CES Awards

I’m quite excited! Wish me luck and maybe I’ll score awesome tech gear as well as amazing cosmetic purchases! I doubt I’ll come home from Vegas without some sort of makeup in tow! However, I can’t promise much as I’m attending with a hoard of geeky guys that are most definately not going to want to take time out to shop for cosmetics but we shall see what happens!

Wish me luck!

See you in a few days 😉

Happy Weekend!


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‘.

    Woooo! Amazing woman! You owned an insurance office? You made it on your career. congratulations!

  • Row

    Woo hooooooo! Theres nothing like a good geek fest, quite frankly.

    Got to go to one of these things one day. Esp the gaming exhibits!

  • jonny

    uhm, *scratches chin* bring me back some rock from vegas!!!! damn thats blackpool, silly me!!!

    Yeah, John’s a pretty big fan of Yoko and an even bigger fan of Heather! Seriously, the only way homeboy would become Yoko’s fan is if she flayed him alive a literally turned him into one; she’s been planning as much for years now… It’ll look real nice next to the bowl she’s going to make out of Ringo’s skull.

    I’m actually (genuinely) a fan of Heather’s, though. Well, maybe fan is too strong a word; I just don’t hate her the way everyone else does.

    Yes, John Lennon’s period of time w/ Yoko was great for his solo career, awful for his family (poor Julian, poor Jude).

    Forget Vegas! You need to head over to Nippon (Japan Ai style) and come back loaded with pictures, experiences and beauty products to share with your loyal Muse-ettes! I could come too! I could totally fit into a suitcase or an overhead compartment! Wanna see? *accidentally locks self in suitcase*

    So exciting!!! Hope you will have a lot of fun! And dont forget to have extra fun for all us geeks who cant be there. 😉

    guess what? my friend found that apple lipbalm! it was $6…and i don’t think it smelled as great as i hoped

  • the Muse

    Hi Kitty!

    Aw you’re making me way more important then I am! Hehe! It’s all rather boring 😉

    Thanks though! Appreciate your kind words!

  • the Muse

    ‘ello Row 😉

    I love the gaming stuff myself 😉 It’s good company I’m keeping with my fellow geeks here 😉

    Conventions are damn nerdy but I adore going 😉


  • the Muse

    Hey Mandy!

    LOL! Paul you mean 😉 LOL! Poor Yoko! Fact is Yoko is actually the genius behind John at times which people fail to appreciate sometimes!

    I’m really neutral about Heather although I don’t appreciate the way she’s over exposed herself lately. Dancing with the Stars, etc….

    I agree John’s period with Yoko was excellent for his art but terrible for family. Although Sean, in the short time John was alive to see him, was quite spoiled with attention from his da. I do believe that Sean was a bit of a love child for John, literally speaking. John had so much adoration for Yoko, any child he had with her, was most definately loved to the max. Although if I was Julian I’d be pissed!

    Nippon! LOL what are you a native hehe! I’ve heard tourist run around calling Japan, Nippon, and it’s cracked me up fo rsome reason!

    If you ever want I can share some of my photos from visits to Japan! I have hundreds embarressingly! I’d love to go back one day but it’s rather costly! Definitely before I die 😉 It’s just not something that you can save airplane, food, and hotel money for. You need major shopping cash and activity cash 🙂

    LOL I’ll leave you locked in there temporarily! We’ll just test to see how long you can breath for your long trip to Tokyo with me!

    Hello lovely makeup!

    Thanks 🙂 I represented my geeky sisters in arms hehehe 🙂

    I wish all of you could have been there! I’m positive we’d have giggled ourselves silly!
