Comments, They Get Out of Control Sometimes!

Hello guys…

I love you.

But please forgive me?

Today I had to take a deep breath, close my eyes, and approve more than 1,000 comments. I’ve been way behind on replying lately due to my tighter schedule and I kept putting it off because I wanted to answer you all individually but I finally realized I’ll never be able to do it.


I closed my eyes.

And I approved all of them.

If you asked something specific please feel free to ask again. If you said something lovely to me, THANK YOU with all my heart. If you had something absolutely urgent to ask me, please feel free to ask again.

By approving them all and just getting them live it saves me alot of time and allows me to start fresh with comments so I can get things under control because comments, they get OUT of control sometimes.

I beg you to understand and forgive me doing this and I hope it won’t stop you from saying hey, commenting on a review, or just to tell you you’ve seen the latest episode of Doctor Who. I love hearing it all!

Big Hugs!

Happy Weekend!


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‘.

    Ha, just messin’ with a Muse. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know how you get anything done with this blog! You’re always slapping up fifty posts (seems like it, anyway!) a day, approving, and answering comments – all in between British tv? Shiiit, you’re wonder woman!

    • the Muse

      lmao off sara I amaze myself girl you were actually one of the people i’ve been wanting to respond to the most hun! but I got so swamped I’m sorry ;-D

  • rizu

    Hey Muse,

    I’m new to the blog! I’m glad to see that you really care about your followers!

    I’m trying to take better care of my skin, and I was wondering who you use for inspiration? Any particular celebrities/style icons? What type of skincare/beauty regimen do YOU use?


    • the Muse

      Hi Rizu! I do indeed, very much so ;-D It’s good to meet you. since blogging I really switch things up alot with my skincare but for the most part I’m all about Lush Cosmetics. I actually did a post about my entire Lush regime that can be found in the archives. I also use various Asian skincare products that I’ve reviewed here ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t really use any celebs for inspiration for my skin….it’s all about getting down what works best for you ๐Ÿ˜€ and sticking with it! Hope this helps!?

  • Jayne

    Oh, my. 1000?! Well, you always make such an obvious effort to keep in touch with your readers and answer our comments, I highly doubt anyone is going to freak out about this! The fact that you made an entire post apologizing for it is a testament to that! Good luck, and I hope you get to relax soon!

    • the Muse

      aw thanks jayne I TRY ;-D I think I let it get a little out of hand b/c I put posting ahead of it all…but now I feel relief that are all approved and I can start over! ;-D thanks hun! Happy Weekend!

  • electronicfly

    Responding to every single one of 1274890218054630215603 comments daily? I think it’s quite impossible, and I believe most of us know (and just wanna blab anyway :P)

    For me, no apologies required, but thanks to you instead. <3 <3!

  • Jackers

    You are human, we (well, hopefully most) know this and it is okay. Now, no worries and enjoy your weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Marina

    You work so hard on this blog, it’s totally understandable! Even though you’re superwoman, everyone needs a break every once in a while ๐Ÿ˜› Many people wouldn’t take the time to comment back as much as you do!

  • Marina

    Completely forgot to mention that I saw Fright Night last night. And it made me think of the post you did on it XD
    I actually quite enjoyed it. I enjoyed the cheese factor, the awkward comedy, and well, yeah…Tennant in leather pants and little else, haha. I went in expecting him to be the best part of the film, and he was, but it was fun to see with friends anyways.
    I hate horror movies AND 3D, but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make for one of my favorite actors XD

  • Nia

    Oh, do not worry. I have no idea how you can keep up the blog, work, life and test out concealers for us. No idea, but we all appreciate it very much ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Mary the Muse Militant

    WOW – I had hundreds of “comment” emails from your wonderful self last night !!

    I’m not complaining W()()T !
    You are going to kill yourself typing all day and night trying to answer most of the comments.
    We don’t expect you to do half or even a quarter of what you do.
    You need a bot to make replies for you !!
    Now don’t go answering this comment ๐Ÿ™‚

    • the Muse

      I’m so sorry Mary LOL that was a crumb load of e-mails ;-D! aw thanks Mary I really appreciate you guys for understanding!
