About the Muse Profile

Who is this Muse girl anyway? 

Around the Internet I’m simply known as the Muse. A Muse of makeup maybe..the Muse in Musings perhaps? 

Could be anything.

Who am I really?

I’m just an average, everyday, general cosmetic junkie that plans to take over the world. You can join me and my minions on our quest for cosmetic nirvana by reading my uber awesome, fabulous blog!

In all seriousness……….

I’m a 30 year old, native New Yorker. Born, Bred, and Raised in this little city (but traveled far from home on many a fine occasion seeking new and exciting beauty products from distant lands…it’s true just check my blog for reviews on products you may have never heard of!).

Contrary to popular belief I do not work in the fashion or cosmetic industry, far from it.

When I’m not moonlighting as the Editor here at Musings (Wow! Editor sounds so bloody important doesn’t it?) I have a real job, in the real world as an Insurance Broker, underwriting commercial and personal policies. I own and operate my own office with my older sister and together we are a legend in our own minds (I’m positive other people think we are legendary as well but I haven’t met one yet! If I do I’ll let you know!).

I also enjoy pina coladas and getting caught in the rain….

When I’m not posting tons of reviews, testing new products, and playing around in the comment box with my awesome readers you can find me at some high end counter looking for the next awesome cosmetic find.

I’m also a geek and come with all the excess baggage geeks come with such as attending crazy conventions, playing stupid amounts of WoW, reading manga, and watching Star Trek and Doctor Who reruns.

In my spare time I love shopping, eating out, going to the movies, and enjoying good times with my friends (Hey, I live in the city that never sleeps! We got plenty of awesome entertainment options here!).

I’m a huge lover of literature, indie and foreign films and could possibly be more passionate about these than cosmetics. Whoa.

I adore traveling and have been to many great and exotic places! I’m a big lover of Japanese, Korean, and British popular culture.

Ok, ok enough about me…I feel like I’m on a dating site here….

Something you’re dying to know about little, old, boring me?

E-mail or comment! I’ll happily provide the deets!

Urban Decay and MAC Sitting in a Tree!

And for my mascara freaks those are indeed my real lashes with MJ Mascara…why are you still here looking at this? RUN to E-bay and pick yourself up some!

Slow Loading Times

My most wonderful mate Haru kindly told me that loading times are super slow on my blog!

She suggested I start uploading images directly to blogger!

If you’ve been experiencing super slow loading times please excuse the delay while I switch over images to blogger’s server!

Thanks for your patience!

Label Love

I’m so properly chuffed with labels! They make life so much easier and organized!

So….if you’re confused I shall explain 😉

If you’re not familiar with the general outline of the blog you will be after this!

Labels are nifty little tags that allow me to place particular blogs into particular headings so it’s easy for YOU, my reader, to find what your little heart desires!

If you look towards your right hand side you’ll see a list of various items with little numbers next to them!

These are labels!

Basically if you see a blog of particular interest and were curious if I had previously blogged you can look down on the bottom of that particular entry and take note of the “labels” or “tags”! Click on the particular label that interests you and PRESTO! You’ll be magically transmitted to another similar blog of interest!

An example:

You’re viewing one of my many cam whore Face of the Day entries and you’re really loving it because I’m so awesome, gorgeous, etc….and you’re so wishing at some point that you were as great as I am but never will be, etc….(I’m kidding of course but let me have my moment in the sun would ya?)…anyway as you’re enjoying this entry you’re curious if I’ve done any other Face of the Day posts!

No problem!

After you’ve drooled over my beauty (again, kidding!) you can click the label on the bottom of the entry and BAM! You’ll be transported to all my Face of the Day entries!

How very nifty don’t you agree?

Enjoy!

Moving Update

It appears that my new home here at Blogger is coming along quite nicely!

I’ve been slowly and carefully moving my blogs from their old home and all is coming along very nicely!

You’ll notice some of my posts refer to an item I got yesterday or today, etc….please take note these blogs are older ones that I wrote weeks, months, or days ago so the time frame is slightly off 🙂

I’m looking forward to interacting with you all and I’ll hope you’ll take a moment to say hello or comment!

Many thanks for your patience during my move!
