Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours!

I’m quite of the mentality that I don’t need a special holiday or day to give thanks for all I have. When I wake up in the morning I whisper my thanks that my eyes are open and I’m ready to experience a new day and when I close my eyes at night I whisper my thanks for getting through the day, for having friends and family who love and support me and who I love and support, and for having a place to lay my head…the rest is just pudding!

I hope that you’ll be thankful tomorrow because it’s nice to have a special day to gather around your favorite people, your family, loved ones, and friends and rejoice in having all these wonderful people to share a special dinner with. But I’m even more hopeful you don’t forget to whisper your thanks each morning and each evening and remember how lucky you are to be alive, lucky to have a job, a home, family, friends, and great makeup of course hehe!

I’m thankful for each of you everyday. Thank you for sharing Musings with me. You’ve no idea how much fun and exciting you make it. Makeup isn’t nearly as great if you don’t have wonderful “virtual” girlfriends (and boy-friends) to share it with.

Thank you for supporting me, for commenting, for e-mailing, for tweeting, and just for joining in here. I work hard on this site, really hard, and I rejoice in the fact that I have such amazing people to share that hard work with.

May you and yours be blessed not only tomorrow but all days of the year!

I’ll speak to you all really soon! Don’t eat too much turkey while I’m away, I don’t wanna drag your butt outta a bloody food coma come Monday!


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‘.
