Pieces of Life: Not 100 but 250 Things!

I just had a fun time reading Erika’s 100 Things on Makeup Bag. After reading it I was suddenly inspired to do my own. I’m boring as all hell but I thought it would be fun to give it a go!

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‘.

    Wow, you weren’t kidding when you said 250! outstanding! πŸ™‚

  • Mollie

    Oh my god you make me SO happy. =) *Tackles Muse, which is okay as Mollie weighs about 90 lbs and is also short*

    People just don’t understand how I can be me, nerd queen of nerdville- art history/philosophy double major, like you a major Anglophile, lover of literature, Dr. Who, Star Wars, Dune, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Paganism, gender dynamics, role play gaming, Monty Python, Spaced, Neil Gaiman (and Yoshitaka Amano for that matter), Baudelaire, existentialism, Pockys, Flight of the Conchords and the list goes on- yet still be so interested in makeup and the like.

    I have a theory on this. Many people who love aesthetics also are nerds. Makeup is essentially an aspect of human aesthetics. Therefore, many nerds are also people who (may) like makeup.

    It’s like, just because school is mai thang, my number one priority… that doesn’t mean I can’t have a frou-frou side who wants to own every color of Urban Decay eyeshadow. Or all the Kenzo perfumes. Or each mask that Korres makes. Or every MSF MAC has come out with. πŸ˜‰

    You are now my hero.

    • the Muse

  • Julia

    Hi Muzzie!! It’s me Julia~ I was totally speechless after I did finish all the 250 things about you lol
    The word β€˜great’ would be incomplete to describe you so I’d choose

I really liked it( the warmth coming from the typed sentences :-D), but never expected you not to belong to beauty industry cause I was like 100% sure you belonged xD As a fan of ur wonderful blog, I felt that its unfair not to introduce myself a little( though Im not that bold to write all 250 things about me,huh?!)οƒŸ- I’,m lying, aren’t I?
    Since you mentioned Gackt and j-rock,I decided to tell about me in a creative way ( by using the titles of Gackt’s songs xD) so let’s see the results~~
    1. If you had 1 million dollars, where would you go?
    -Secret Garden

    2. You claim not be scared by anything, but there must be something out there?

    3.What is ur IM? (Ideal Man)
    -Jesus xD

    4.What subculture do you belong?
    -Lost angels

    5.Which scent can wake up ur inner sense beauty?

    6.Is there something that bugs you most of all?
    -Uncertain memories

    7.What are ur plans for the future?
    -journey through the decade

    8. What feeling or state of mind you’ll never open ur heart to?

    9.Is there something you seem not to understand well??

    10. When the time for you to die comes ,what ur last wish would be?
    -Rebirth πŸ˜€

    This is where my creativity died xD but anyway,thanks for sharing all this cool info :3 all reviews about asian products are more than appreciated!!!!

  • Kathie

    How long did this take πŸ˜› !!
    This is truly awesome, Muse πŸ™‚
    But I saw some cheats, you can’t put “and cool”, “a lot” as one of the numbers! Haha Great blog <3

    • the Muse

      AGES kathie lol πŸ˜€ haha those were def cheats πŸ™‚

      thanks hun, Hugs!

  • InΓͺs

    I still like to read all these 250 things XD We should try to chat in portuguese one of these days :p Where is your portuguese family from?

    • the Muse

      ha Ines πŸ˜€ glad you liked! Sure let’s do that haha πŸ˜€

      arcos de valdevez, my dad was born, raised there. Also viana de costello in later years, my parents have a Summer home there, used to spend alot of time there as a child/teen .

      • InΓͺs

        Hm, way north then πŸ˜› I’m from Porto, a little souther than Viana, but my mother and sister are from Braga, which is a little closer to you father’s homeland πŸ™‚ Although I have family in Viana as well, so I do visit it from it to time. What a small world!

        • the Muse

          Porto is lovely. πŸ˜€ My cousin and her family live there. You at least live in the city so you prob have access to great stuff πŸ™‚ Braga is nice as well, been to both for a visit but never an extended stay. Braga and Porto are much more urban compared to where my dad is from but Arcos is considerably more country but it’s more modern lately…haven’t been in a few years but lots of work, highways, etc…being built!

          very small πŸ™‚ indeed!

          • InΓͺs

            Yeah, Portugal is about 90% countryside lol My father is also from a rural village (near Coimbra), and only very recently they’ve started to have access to decent roads and such.

            As for Porto, yes, we do have nice things! It’s urban enough, but not too much of a big city, so living here is pretty comfortable. Still, most of the important things, like concerts or big trademark releases, go to Lisbon. We have been complaining a lot about that lately lol we got MAC only recently here XD

            Do come for a visit someday! πŸ™‚ I would love to go to NYC someday… SHOPPING LOL!

  • donna

    Oi!! Como vai? Eu gosto muito de ler o seu blog. πŸ˜€ I took a semester of portuguese and dated a Brazilian for 2 years so I know a little bit of Portuguese as well. Are you fluent?

  • DivaShop

    I completely get it! I have my geeky side too! The side that loves Star Trek, Dr. Who, Star Wars, etc., as well doing stuff (html, web dev) on the computer. Then I have my girly side that loves makeup. I’m sure my family must think I’m a contradiction, lol!

    • the Muse

      hey gloria! πŸ˜€ I’m all about that stuff too! πŸ˜€ hehe we are both walking contradictions as I too am a big geek, bit of a tom boy at times, but also girlish! go figure!

  • suz

    here are the things we have in common hahahaha

  • coconana

    WoW player, K-drama watcher, anglophile, English lit lover, and a few more sprinkled hither and thither… for a second there, I was like HOLD UP!!!111 Did I write this?

    Then I read all the other stuff and was like: “Nah, this was obviously written by someone far more productive than you, coconana. In other words, not a lazy bum.”

    I don’t know how you manage to do it all, but <3 you for it!

    • the Muse

      lol coconana ;-D cool we share so much in cmoon ;-D are you aren’t lazy I’m sure!!!!!!! lol!

  • Nat

    I was trying to find out more about you because I wasn’t sure if you were British or not. I was confused since you said you were from New York, but your writing, as well as the mention of your Dr. Who ringtone, make you sound British. Now I just read that you’re an anglophile–makes a lot of sense, lol.

    • the Muse

    H! Muse, I absolutely enjoy reading your blog! I read through the list and it is amazing, funny and interesting. I’m Puertorrican but my best friends is from mexico. I’m 5’8 and have a lot in common with you just that I cannot put them down in this list πŸ™‚ If you like Korean dramas. You should see Hwang Jini with Hajiwon as the leading lady and kim jae won (I saw it in my Christmas recess, I’m a teacher) the drama is based in the real life of a Korean Gisaeng back in the Joseon dynasty,go check it out. For me was a tear jerker and the ost music incredibly beautiful!

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks girl πŸ˜€ you flatter me! I heard Hwang Jini was fabulous πŸ™‚ def gotta watch it! Thanks for the rec girl!
