Good Night, Oh Wait It’s Morning Right?


Tired yet some what alive Muse as seen above.

What the hell time is it anyway?

Makeup-less, jet lagged, confused about the time zone, puffy eyed, and ready to grab some shut eye but I thought I’d say a quick hello and tell you I missed you all so much! I literally just stepped through my door not 20 minutes ago proceeding to throw my luggage on the floor, wash my face, and I’m pretty sure everything else can wait until I’ve grabbed a few Zzzzs!

Talk to you all shortly!

P.S. Yes, I know about the new Doctor! The bookies in London were having a field day with it! But more on that later……!



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‘.

    Hello back 🙂 I was just thinking what would you say about the new Doctor… My boyfriend just rocked my world by saying “How about Doctor House playing Doctor Who, as well?” Well, to my mind Hugh Laurie will be great for that 😀

    • the Muse

      oh thanks eula…I was thinking I looked like hell warmed over in the microwave hehe ;D

  • Melanie

    Yea !! Your back!!! My morning reads have not been the same:) rest up and get to posting 🙂 🙂
    Love the photo very beautiful.

    • the Muse

      aw thanks Melanie! It’s great to be back! I got about nearly 5 hours in after a shower I should be good as new ;-D I THINK!? 😀

  • Renu

    Welcome back, Muse! You look very cute and young, whether with makeup or not!

    • the Muse

      thanks suki 🙂 not so sure about that lol without makeup and concealer but thanks girl!

    • the Muse

      thanks kasey 🙂 not so sure about the pretty part without concealer I’m a wreck ;D

  • Andrea Murdock

    You look gorgeous!!! I think this is the first time I have seen you not in your standard pose. All around beautiful girl! I am not familiar with this doctor’s work so when we get home today I will be spending time on the web looking to see him act. I always feel so much anxiety and fear that they won’t bring the doctor to life the way we need him to be yet we haven’t been disappointed yet. I was bone tired getting home yesterday and could barely lift a finger yet managed to google who the new doctor is on my ipad before falling fast asleep hee hee!! Whovians RULE!!

    • the Muse

      ha true Andrea guess when you’re blogging it does become a bit of repetitive posing 😀 thanks! I’m amazed any of you feel that way as I don’t! Without concealer I feel like a nightmare. I’m quite familiar with him but was surprised they went older, there goes my theory about the doctor become younger with each regeneration! ;-D I’m not really scared this time around to be honest…I feel like they’ve done a great job with regenerations so far so I think we’ll be a ok ;-D I actually have been bombarded with this all through my vacation! Couldn’t get away from people discussing it lol! 😀

  • megan

    That picture is beautiful. Might sound odd…given how much work we all (you!) put into makeup but you look so stunning and fresh completely without. Got me thinking (about authenticity). Amazing!

    • the Muse

      wow thanks megan 😀 and I was thinking posting the pic was not a good idea ;-D

  • Ruth

    I hope you had a marvelous time on holiday! heh “hell warmed over in the microwave” you are such a nutter!

    • the Muse

      it was incredible thanks for ruth 😀 and it felt like too short but I’m happy to be home! hehe seriously that’s exactly how I feel!

  • Amy Amethyst

    You look lovely, Muse! Glad to see you back. Hope you had fun on the vacay. I have about 3 months before my cruise. Can’t wait!!!!

    • the Muse

      hey Am! 🙂 where ya off too?! which cruise line? Absolutely adore cruising 🙂 I’m happy to be back phew but tired!

      • Amy Amethyst

        We will be on Carnival Ecstasy. My sis and her bf have been on it before. Ports in Bahamas and Half Moon Cay. We have a group going so it will be fun. I love cruises!

        • the Muse

          hey amy! yay! sounds fab. I’ve been on Carnival only once but it was quite fun. That’s typically how I cruise too, with a group is always fun fun fun ;-D I went on the Norwegian Gem two years ago with about twenty friends and we just had a blast! I hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Amy Amethyst

            I know it will be fun! Cruises are sooo relaxing to me

          • the Muse

            yay 😀 enjoy! tell me all about it when you get back ;D

  • Nadia

    Yey you are back! I hope you had a nice vacation 🙂 you look so good with your hair down!

  • K.B.

    Welcome back! I hope you had a great time! And you look gorgeous with no makeup!

  • Pamela

    I’m really glad they went older (and they’ve hinted at this before). Maybe some dignity and staidness to contrast with Matt’s goofiness? I’d be glad to hear your thoughts and the opinions of those you talked to during vacation time. Are people generally happy? Surprised?

    My only concern is that the relationship with Clara will be quite different. Thoughts?

    • the Muse

      I am too I could use something a bit more serious! 😀 People pretty much predicted Peter on a whole and I think it’s all happiness coming out of the UK but American fans might feel differently if they aren’t long time fans. Def agreed….but I do get the grandfatherly vibe from the 11th/Clara relationship anyway so I think that will follow through somewhat with 12.

  • Michelle

    Hope your vacation was great!
    P.S. You really do look like a muse in this photo – so pretty 🙂

  • susan

    I think you look great. Hope you get some much needed rest. And I agree with everyone you look terrfic with your hair down. Very pretty <3

  • Cj

      • Cj

        • the Muse

      aw thanks katros lol I’m kinda shocked anyone even noticed, posted the pic on a whim after I washed my face 😀 thanks girl! I did indeed grabbed about 5 hours! got in at 3am-ish, slept until 8ish and been running errands, getting bits in order before back to work with me ;-D

  • Daniela

    Squee!!! You’re back! I was having withdrawals…Ohh and I love your picture! You look gorgeous and I love the hair. I’ve been dying to see you with your hair down forever(well by forever I mean the few years I’ve been reading your blog) I love it!!!

    • the Muse

      i’m back! hehe 😀 thanks daniela good to be home! aw thanks…! I’m like stunned by all these great comments ;-D yeah, typically love keeping it back when I am working as it is very long and wavy so keep it out of my eyes when I snap pics etc ;D

  • MJ

    Welcome back! I agree, even minus makeup, sleep, and time zone orientation, you still look gorgeous – especially with your hair down. However, I do understand the utility of having your hair back. Mine is not as long as yours but also on the wild and wavy side, and it drives me nuts to have it in my face while I’m busy.

    • the Muse

      omg someone who relates! same here mj! 😀 it drives me freaking CRAZY to have it in my face when I am working. typically I get up in the AM, shower, and slick it back! ;-D but thanks…I feel like crap and look it too you guys are just too kind ;D

  • Christina

    Yay! Welcome back! I sure did miss your posts.

    By the way, if that’s how you look all jet-lagged and tired, well, damn! I must be an troll. Haha! You look incredible!

    • the Muse

    • the Muse

  • Bridget

    You must take some credence from all the positive commentators on here – the picture is lovely. You look like a muse for a Renaissance painter. The pun was not intentional btw :/

  • jnee

    • the Muse

    Muse, I love you and your blog, and after seeing this photo I think you need to ditch the headband. You are a stunner with your hair down!

  • Julia

    Thank goodness! I was starting to have Muse withdrawls. I love the picture with your hair down!!

  • Shadia L.

    OMG. I WISH my face looked as gorgeous without makeup! And you should do more shots of yourself with your hair down–so purdy!
