Writer’s Block

Hey Guys!

I’m a bit off my game this week as you may have noticed. I have a ton of new posts up my sleeve but I haven’t typed any of them out as I haven’t really had the will to do so.

It’s been a bit of a crummy week to say the very least which could account for my lack of posts and my general “I’m not up for it” attitude.

Do forgive me?

I’ll be back in writing force soon!

I did two new reviews for you though! See below. They aren’t my best but hopefully they’ll tide you over until I’m feel a bit more myself!



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‘.

    Feel better!! I’ve missed your posts so much and I’m so glad you’re at least somewhat back. You should treat yourself to some pampering to lift your spirits. I’m off to Bergdorf in an hour to pick up some goodies for myself to celebrate having passed my MPRE! Shopping always lifts my spirits!

  • Critty

    Sorry you have had a crappy week 🙁 I hope everything is ok and you are feeling better soon.

    Big hugs,

    Aww Muse! We all get writer’s block. Although the kind you have is great b/c your posts are still so good and thorough! I hope all is well and that you’ll be feeling better again soon 🙂

    xoxox, you little cookie!

    Hey hun,

    I forgot to ask how your search for an eye cream is going. My Strivectin just finished a few weeks back and i’m also looking for a new eye cream. Just before it finished my skin started tingling so i stopped using it and gave it to a friend who ended up finishing it.

    I’m considering La Prarie, Chanel and La Mer. Any reccommendations?

  • Sminkan

    I know the feeling, but for me, right now, it is more of a work-related thing. I love writing for the blog, I just wish I could do that instead of work. And last week was terrible and on top of that the flat-renovating thing… And I sleep not enough hours and my eyes look baggy. No eotd’s for me!
    But still, spring is around the corner and tomorrow’s Friday!

    Take your time but be back soon with all of your usual wit and energy! 😉

    hiya jen!

    Thanks darling! Don’t worry I got some seriously big haul of posts for you shortly 😉

    honey I’ve been seriously considering going over to Bergdorf and dishing out for some Manolos to make myself feel better hehe 😉 I feel Carrie Bradshaw 😉

    Congrats on passing your bar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I need a lawyer can I call on you?! 🙂 Fantastic! Good luck to you Jen 🙂 You should be very proud of yourself so definately splurge on your shopping trip today to reward yourself for a job well done!

    Congrats! MAJOR hugs!

  • the Muse

    hey cookie 🙂 *hugs*

    aw thanks babe 🙂 I’m good. I’ll talk to you later tonight hopefully 😉

    Wait I have to look at the telly schedule first as I don’t wanna disturb your tv time hehehe 🙂


  • nilla cookie

    LOL – Thursdays are a pretty slow night for me so you’re okay! 🙂

  • the Muse

    hey Allysia-May!

    so far so good. I’ve successfully located two good eye creams 🙂 One would be the Dr Denese Hydroshield for eyes and the 2nd would be Lancome’s renergie eyelift. I’m also using Fusion Eye lift in the AM. This is a temporary eye smoother that works wonders!!! It erases lines for 14 hours or so! amazing stuff! Review to come soon!

    I tried La Mer but it didn’t do much for me! Chanel and La Prarie have rave reviews 🙂 so that might be worth the go.

    Hope this helps!

  • Row

    Ahhh I hope your ok? 🙂

    Don’t be sad! Dunk your head in a bowl of glitter? It works for me!!

  • Nic Nic

  • Askmewhats
