Gone Fishin’! Kinda.

The Muse is leaving on a jet plane….well…not a jet plane but a cruise ship! It’s almost the same thing anyway right?

I’ll be away from from June 2nd until June 14th. Umm yea totally screwed up on the dates duh…June 4th to June 14th…ahhhh that’s better!

I’m not bringing any geeky gadgets while I’m away…no cell phone….no powerbook….etc…

Which sadly means no blogging for 12 days! I doubt you’ll miss me as much as I’ll miss you!

While I’m away you can amuse yourself with some of my past posts!

Bon Voyage!


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‘.

    in the mean time, i shall try it a few more times just to make sure that i used it correctly, and the effects are constant. cos i might have done a blotched job on monday! i looked oddly white even aft foundation.

    I missed you!

    I didn’t read it..let me see now!

    LMAO I had heard about this.

    I rather like the idea. They make a rather cute couple. No one would know the age gap 😉

  • the Muse

    Aww Adina I’m backs I’m backs 🙂

    It was lovely but it’s always good to come home too 😉

  • the Muse

  • the Muse

    hiya Vichaya

    Thanks honey! LOL I wish but sadly it was all the same ho-hum at duty free 😛

  • the Muse

    hiya tracy!

    Cruises are always good fun 😉 It was San Juan, Grand Turk, Bermuda, and St Thomas 🙂 Very relaxing and HOT! 😉

  • the Muse

    hey cookie!

    Oh it’s ok lovie! It happens! I was hoping we’d have time for a nice long one but you had a bit of a connection prob! We’ll catch up soonish!

    You should give me a ring 🙂

    Thanks! I had a blast! San Juan, Bermuda, St Thomas, and Grand Turk!


  • the Muse

    hey wen!

    That’s ok! Send it whenever you are ready 🙂 Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

    I was a tad bit white as well so I had to be sure to use less the 2nd time around 🙂 Hope it worked the next times on you!

  • the Muse

    hi ping!

    Aww thanks honey!!!!!!!!!! I’m back lovie and better than ever 😉

    It was wonderful! Was nice and warm and relaxing 🙂 Plenty of r and r 🙂

  • nilla cookie

    Grand Turk! How amazing! I went to Turks and Caicos last year. What kind of excursions did you do while you were there?

    We’ll definitely chat soon, Friend! Get some rest – it’s bad to the work grind 😉

  • the Muse

    hey cookie!

    Grand Turk is my fav island. So small and undeveloped! Pure perfection!

    Did quite a few bits while on shore…snorkeling, beachin’, eatin’ at the local eateries (had amazing seafood paella in San Juan), went to hamilton by ferry, touring, shopping 🙂



    was a good time!

    ugh! I needs a nap now please lol!

    *hugs* love ya cookie!

  • nilla cookie

    Sounds like you had an amazing time!

    The BF wants to go on a cruise for my 30th bday.. suggestions on good cruise lines for us young late 20s group? We are terribly afraid of dining with our beloved seniors 😉

  • the Muse

    hey mizz cookie! Was really great! Felt good to relax.

    It really depends on when you go. Totally understand “the fear of seniors”. If you go in the late Summer it’s terrible as kids/teenagers are everywhere and early summer is Senior overload at times. I find going in September is the best time. Good young crowd.

    Sadly you’ll run into the older crowd no matter what. They rule the sea lol!

    Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, and Princess are really fun and fresh but Royal Caribbean’s food sucks 😛 At least I thought it did and also really shitty wait times for dining rooms and such 🙁

    Another good one is Norweigian. The Dawn is a small ship but really really fun and a nice younger crowd.

    hope this helps =-)

    If you have any questions give a yell as cruising can be a very confusing experience sometimes such as hidden costs and the likes!
