Thoughts for Japan

Good Morning!

Not very good I fear. I hope you’ll all take a second to offer a quick prayer or a good though to those in Japan this morning (and now California and Hawaii as well). Thanks to everyone who e-mailed to ask after my extended “family” in Japan. I haven’t heard from anyone yet after a good many calls but I hope I’ll hear something soon.

Those with friends and family in Japan my thoughts and prayers are with you.


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‘.

    Do try emailing them. Phonelines are down at some areas, but since internet line is underground, it’s not affected by the tsunami.

  • Corinne

    I evacuated about 2am since I live right across the street from the ocean…not a good feeling at all knowing I had to pack up my life in a suitcase and wait it out if my house will survive. Luckily, it didn’t hit hard but my area is still under warning.

    Prayers to all my family and friends stranded in Japan and Hawaii and everyone that lives near the water…

    • the Muse

      oh god Corinee. My thoughts are with you. please email me if you need anything at all. if, god forbid, your makeup stash gets ruined I’d be happy to supply you with some stuff. If you need anything please don’t hesitate to email me. My thoughts and prayers are with you 🙁

      • Corinne

        aww thank you so much! I actually packed a lot of my makeup in 2 train cases haha i still left a lot behind but they are replaceable…i wish i could just pick up my house and move it away from the water…it was the middle of the night so i just threw stuff in a suitcase….

        I am listening to the news at work and the warning may be lifted soon…so that’s good news

        • the Muse

    • the Muse
