Vacation, All I Ever Wanted! Buh-Bye for Now!

Hey there!

I’m off on Holiday starting tomorrow and I’ll be back on August 19th.

Sniff! I sure will miss you all so very much.

I’ll be fully into Fall when I return and yes, believe it or not, Holiday 2012. Surreal isn’t it?

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and a successful week ahead. Thank you for visiting me daily, I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know.

Talk to you VERY soon!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter to win my MASSIVE $500 MAC Giveaway while I’m away! Good Luck!


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‘.

    Enjoy your vacation! Where are you going to?
    My vacation starts 2nd of September, one week to Kos, Greece.
    After that fall can start, not earlier 😉

    • the Muse

      cindy that sounds amazing! Have fun! I’m taking a Caribbean cruise for nine days 🙂 I was going to try and squeeze in a trip to England for Summer but decided it was best to wait for Fall with the Olympics that would have been hellish ;D

      • Cindy

        Very smart! London is soooo busy right now, and expensive…
        And a Caribbean cruise sounds amazing, enjoy!

        • the Muse

          def……I dunno how but I completely forgot about the Olympics when I was planning. Suddenly, I was like, “What? holy cow I can’t go to the UK now!” I haven’t been on a cruise in two years now so it’ll be a nice change, plenty of opportunities for R&R too ;D Greece sounds amazing, wish I could come with you! 😀 I went in 2002 but it was a really short trip. I always said I’d get back someday but I never did….! grrrr!

    I’ve been reading your website for a year now. I read it everyday when I get home :). I started posting comments on giveaways recently. I’ve gotten the courage to post! Anyways, I’m having some sort of musingsofamuse withdrawal with you being gone so long. Today I had to read another beauty blog *gasp* to entertain myself until you get back. Oh and I visited your lovely city with some girls a few weeks back. I love New York!

    • the Muse

  • Suzanne

    So glad you are back Muse! I was a little lost without all you beauty news last week 🙂
