Going Mobile

Something you might not know about me? I’m a freak for the Who. Why has no wireless company tapped them for a phone commercial!?

Something else you might not know? Musings of a Muse went mobile this week and I hate it. Haha…! I’m not a huge fan of mobile designs. I’m of the mentality what you see on your desktop is what you should see on your phone and tablet. But designing a site so that happens can prove difficult.

There is a new, responsive site upcoming later this Spring but for now I’m using a plugin that downsizes the size of my site and makes it a little more user friendly for mobile users. I hope you’ve noticed and taken advantage of the feature!

If you have any issues with loading on mobile (or desktop or anywhere) please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Thanks for your patience with the crummy mobile design I’m now serving and know that later this Spring it’ll be a lot prettier!

As always thank you for your readership and thank you for your friendship!

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‘.

    Best.Album.Evar. I love the Who too! I really dig that so much of the music from this album is used on TV. Plus,Roger Daltrey is still pretty hot… ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Isabella Muse

      agreeeedddd on all accounts! I’ve yet to see going mobile in a commercial, I think it would be cute for a tablet or mobile commercial!

  • kimkats

    Yeah, it would!! I think that’s my favorite song off that album. “Mobile, mobile mobile, YEAH!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Woo-Hoo!”

  • Christina D.

    I love The Who, too! Definitely in my top three bands of all time.

    BTW “Going Mobile” IS in a commercial, playing in the background, but I cannot for the life of me remember which one…T-Mobile, perhaps? Not sure. Too many damn commercials, period!

    • Isabella Muse

      NO KID! I thought I was master minding some mobile commercial with this! They also started using I want to break free in some commercial recently…not sure which one! did you get my last comments for our girl date? Thoughts? Palisade Mall? Skin Food store was supposed to be opening, we shop, grab something to eat! I know you’re busy at work so maybe we can do it next month. I’ve been swamped myself. I seriously eat, breath, and live work lately. Been a heck of a busy renewal. I miss my 9 to 5 hours!

  • Christina D.

    Yes, I absolutely did get your comments but you lost me after something about candles…or maybe it was just the mention of the Palisades Mall because I lose all track of thoughts in that place. It’s just too damn big and overwhelming and then I wind up not buying anything because I forget what I was there for in the first place. So let’s not go there. April shouldn’t be as crazy (I hope) so let’s find something close to home for both of us. Maybe Cross County? I still have my sights on Bay Plaza but I’m flexible.

    • Isabella Muse

      LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL ;-D I know! tell me about it. You need a golf cart to get from one store to the next. Bay Plaza is fine by me! That’s plenty close! April sounds good, hope to be a lot less work stressed by that time. So tired! been a hell of a busy month! I could just nap right now. I’m having one of those days that I want to rush through, go home, and veg.

      • Isabella Muse

        ps as much as I want to go harmons I don’t want to drive from the city all the way to New Rochelle lol! groan!

  • Christina D.

    BTW you probably don’t know but I work right in midtown. That’s an option too.

    • Isabella Muse

  • Christina D.

    You’re not a crummy friend, just a busy one. Your blog is my break time in a hectic day. Yes, new job and THANK GOD back in the city I love and, up until a few years ago, had always worked. We have much to catch up on!

    • Isabella Muse

Kinda sorta had a fight with someone yesterday that said I was putting my job before them and it made me feel awful ๐Ÿ™ Awww hey if you don’t have me in person AT the least you have my uber fabulous crazy ass blog to read haha ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t wait to hear about the new job ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t believe I didn’t know. Happy to have you back in the city, it’s a good place to be as far as I’m concerned ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Isabella Muse

        haha ps if maybelline introduces new color tattoos we always have that to text and bond over lol! My phone BLOWS up whenever they do color tattoos with texts from you telling me where to find them ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Christina D.

    I’m sorry you had a fight about that. I totally understand. Feel free to blow up my phone as necessary, Color Tattoos or not.

    D’ya think any of your other readers are like, “What the heck is going on…I thought this was a beauty blog?”

    • Isabella Muse

      yeah me too. sigh. ugh long story tell ya about it when I see you ๐Ÿ™‚ haha! sounds good. LOL naaa they are used to be me being off topic as all hell! ;-D

  • Carol G

    Hey Muse, I agree with you, this mobile site kinda sucks. I got on today and immediately thought “What sorcery is this?” I’m glad you came out and announced you hated it though! I mean it’s not horrible, but on my iPhone I just have your blog on my home screen and just press that everyday (every hour) to check what’s new. Like you said, it was nice to have it be just like a laptop. But hey, I’ll still check it obsessively like before so don’t sweat it too much! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Isabella Muse

      carol if you scroll all the way down you can click a link and the desktop option appears ๐Ÿ˜€ hope this helps!? ๐Ÿ™‚ it’ll be the full size version for you! thank you so much for having me as your home screen that is such a massive compliment!

  • CupK8

    I actually saw that and was like, “Hey! I can actually read this!” So.. while it may not be perfect, it was much appreciated on my commute home yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Isabella Muse

      lol ๐Ÿ™‚ awesome! there’s a new site design launching shortly that hopeful will be a great experience for you Cupk8!

  • Jen

    I love it, thanks for explaining and trying out new things. Can’t wait for phase 2!
