Just A Note, I’m Behind On Comments

Just wanted to say, I’m behind on comments (and e-mails) again. I got a rather disturbing e-mail today from a reader which could have possibly been avoided if I was on top of comments I THINK?! Or I hope!?

But I thought I’d better just do a quick post and tell you that I really appreciate your thoughts, opinions, etc…but I am behind in replying. I have a lot going on sometimes and I do my best to get through all comments and answer them.

Remember they ARE on approval so if they don’t appear right away that’s because they are awaiting for me to approve and reply to each one.

I love chatting with you guys and I wouldn’t intentionally ignore what you have to say. Just know I’m sometimes a little swamped and crazy with work, with the blog, and with my own life ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy 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‘.

    I think people forget this doesn’t pay your bills, and you have a life, gasp, besides us. Lol

    Sweet of you to acknowdge, but not needed for me, I work in insurance ( not an agent) and my family knows not to talk to me at end if month, end of quarter, and end of year. I don’t have time. If my work isn’t finished, agent don’t get paid. You do have a life outside your readers. It’s sad that you have to remind people if that.

    Have a great week!!

    • the Muse

      lol but but I don’t want a life outside of you! haha…no only kidding..unfortunately I do have a life outside of all the insanity that is Musings of a muse. Believe me it would be fun living Musings of a muse 24/7/365 but work and my own personal life get in the way sometimes ;-D

      Oh girl you know my pain! personally I’m typically crazed around 21st through end of the month with payments. And in between that there are endorsements, accidents, and insanity..I underwrite commercial insurance so there are absolutely so much crazy that surrounds it sometimes. drivers that are sometimes not on the policy, having accidents, and trying to get policies reinstated because they go under notice due to unlisted drivers, transfers life and right (how many times do you need to add a new vehicle and remove it? GRR), etc…etc….renewals are insane times too. And suddenly past two months or so tons of new corporations/individual policies that have been written.

      thank YOU so much for understanding ๐Ÿ™‚ <3!

        ps the joke is that this will DEF not pay my bills ;-D sometimes it barely pays the server bills, technical issues, and products I purchase to review ;D

  • Spanky

    Muse, you’re reviews&site bring a smile to my face (and heartbreak to my wallet) daily. Everyone needs a healthy work/life balance. Keep doing what you’re doing. You don’t need to apologize for anything. You do this because you love products. We read your blog bc your reviews and blog is real with real reviews.
    Chin up

    • the Muse

      aw thanks spanky I am so glad you think so! ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree. I think I def have to keep a balance between my life, work, and Musings otherwise I go really crazy ๐Ÿ˜€ hehe! <3!!!!!!!!!!!!!! much love!

  • Robin

    I underwrite life. Reinstatements break my heart.. By the time they submit the request, the person is no longer insurabable. New business is the end of month insanity for me. Agents are like, just hit the button! Dude, I wish it was that easy!

    I read your blog during lunchtime to get a break from the crazy.

    At least we get a three day weekend! :D. Hang in there!!

      life is so damn tricky sometimes. exactly ๐Ÿ™ and people do not want to wait. they want insurance yesterday. I had a guy last week that wanted to purchase a 2013 Toyota and have it on the road in 24 hours as a commercial vehicle. He sends me NO info…no title, no vin, just his two licenses and expects me to get a quote for him ASAP. seriously, you can’t expect to have all your crap done with TLC plus have the bound policy within a 24 hour period especially when he wanted 1 million dollar limits of liability. They take two to three days just to quote the damn policy ๐Ÿ™ people are just so “I WANT IT NOW!” when it comes to these things and they have very little patience to wait. seriously, I wish there was a little button I could hit that will print you an FH1 and a dec sheet and you can just pay me and get out but that isn’t how it works. LOL I hope I relieve you of some of that crazy ;-D AMEN! I’m away for it so can’t WAIT!

  • Ashley

    My goodness, I can’t believe people would be so upset over you being behind on comments and emails. I love your site, I visit it nearly everyday and I just love what you’re doing on your spare time. I hope that these rude individuals don’t discourage you from your blog. I’ll have your back no matter what!

    • the Muse

      hey ashley! I don’t think she realized I was behind on comments and she emailed me to tell me she had made a correction in the title of one of my posts but I actually hadn’t gotten to her comment or replied and I think she felt I was ignoring her (I still haven’t replied to her comment yet as I haven’t found it EEP still sorting through today’s comments). I think with comments on approval folks sometimes get confused why their comment has posted yet and why I am not replying but sometimes it takes me a hot second to get through them all. She commented in April sometime and lord knows I’m still replying to comments from January in some cases hehe ;-D I think it led to a communication problem and that’s partially my fault for being so behind on my replies ;-D but thank YOU! I love you back!!!!!!!! <3!

  • BLee

    Wow, I’m behind on reading here LOL! If anything I know one thing: 1) you sure do alot here 2) I love what you do here and would miss you but to get testy if you got behind? Well your just some joy in our day ๐Ÿ˜€

    • the Muse

      aw thanks for recognizing that blee I do try hard. Not really a guru or anything but do my best to get beauty news/reviews up and to you as fast as I can ;-D I think she was just a little upset her comment had yet been replied to, that’s my fault but been so swamped lately haven’t had time for a reply yet!

  • Kathleen

    You’re REAL?! I thought you lived in my computer! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Trillium

    Who would be rude or mean to you? That’s terrible. I’ve got your back Muse, and I think I speak for many when I say you’re awesome! I’m sure it’s hard to keep up with all the posts here along with having a life. It’s obvious though that you’re really trying and you do care, and that means a lot.

    Thanks for all you do!!!

    • the Muse

      aw thanks trillium it wasn’t rude just that she didn’t get a reply ๐Ÿ™‚ aw thank YOU dear! <3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
