The British are Coming, The British are Coming!

Provisions arrived via FedEx from England for my Doctor Who themed Boxing Day Party. The goody bags will be awesome….

Now I await that monster shipment of Jelly Babies that was such a smashing success last year!


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‘.

        Hehe I’m English so I have the luxury of having them all the time 🙂
        Have you ever tried Quavers? They’re another classic british snack.

        • the Muse

          total anglophile here Laura so know all the snacks and other oddities about England, culture, telly, etc…hehe ;-D def tried quavers, so yummie ;-D My best friend Libby lives in England so she gives me a healthy injection of snacks and other fun stuff hehe! My personal fav of the moment aren’t crisps of any kind but chocolate. the cadbury clusters…OMG the raisin ones absurdly good.

          • Laura

            Awesome! I live in the city where the cadbury factory is, I go past it on the train all the time, you can have a tour round but its expensive so I haven’t been since I was a kid.

            Gotta love chocolate though… I have to agree with the posted below though, I love a Yorkie!

    A Doctor Who mention in a beauty blog? I’ve always appreciated your blog but now feel extra gratified because you’re clearly an awesome person in addition to a hard-working reviewer. 🙂

    It’s been driving me crazy to wait until the Christmas special! Even greater anticipation than I have for the new collections, if that’s possible, haha!

    • the Muse

      amanda are you kidding? you must be new around here LOL I blog who like no one’s biz ;-D it’s a part of Musings as much as makeup haha!

      Check the archives chica you’ll find plenty of babble, spoilers, and reviews of episodes ;-D I’ve been a fan since I was a wee one. Truly agreed, more exciting than new collection launches ALL the way ;-D I can’t wait for Christmas Special either ;-D Are you in the UK or the US?
