Musings of a Muse

A Blog of Musings from a Cosmetic Whore

The Muse Takes on Etude House's Newsletter!

I've probably been on this topic for far too long so you'll have to excuse me for squealing some more! I recently was featured on Etude House's blog which was utterly thrilling for me! Soon after that a wonderful reader told me that I was featured in Etude House's little in-store pamphlet which totally made me flip out!

Yesterday I got home and had a letter from Korea waiting for me. I was puzzling over this as I was expecting some packages from Korea but not a letter. I quickly ripped it open in curiosity and I realized that my very, very, very kind reader had sent me the Etude House in-store pamphlet which features your little Muse on the front page!

Can I tell you how exciting this is for me? I simply adore Korean culture and it's just an honor to be included in the freaking Etude House newsletter! Sheesh, talk about super flattering!

I realize some blogs have made it into popular fashion magazines and others have even made it into the New York Times. Those are seriously great accomplishments but for me this feels ten times better than appearing in a US magazine or newspaper. Reaching out to international readers is something I truly love about my blog. I simply adore my Asian readers and truly to be recognized for my hard work in carving out a niche not many beauty blogs cover really makes me feel like Musings is just a little bit unique and different in comparison to other beauty blogs you read. You can read about the latest MAC collection across the blogsphere and get some seriously great reviews on awesome products. But it always pleases me that you can stop here at Musings, during your daily clicks, and read about the latest and greatest not only in the US but also Japan, Singapore, Korea, England, etc....I think that's what makes Musings extra special and I take alot of pride in that!

Anyway, all gushing aside here's some pics of the newsletter and the Muse smiling from the front page!


A big thank you to that special reader who sent this my way! Thank you SO much!

And of course a really big thank you to the Etude House team who put this together! If you're reading this the Muse sends her love and hugs!

Show Etude House some love by clicking through their awesome website! Clickie!

Here's the inside of the newsletter! Notice they are advertising the Shebert Cool Party Summer Collection! I'll be reviewing it very soon so do stay tuned!

Oh Muse, what a fabulous honor! I adore reading about all of the Asian brands, so for one of them to recognize you is just great! You deserve this. :)

congrats! how exciting! i'm sure it'd be even better, though, if etude showed their thanks with some goodies. ;-) i recently tried a sample of their aqua sherbet gel cream - i look forward to hearing what you think of the line.

Hey Izzy, wow u seem to be on the radar these days with Koreans esp Etude House :) The marketing people at Etude House must be really loving u eh ;) Maybe the maketing and PR people of Etude House will be contacting u next, sending new products to u :p

Anyway, Technoflash is in this week in SG :) I grabbed Sea and Sky, Odd Couple. Can't wait to experiment new looks with these! :)
Sonic Chic and New View aren't in yet. Heard that it'll probably be in next week. I can't wait to grab Dainty and Nuance! They look very wearable :)

I'm so excited for you! Congrats!

One of the reasons I love your blog is because you do include the Asian brands. I've been a manga fan for years and have taken a few years of Japanese, so I enjoy seeing and learning about more of the culture. So keep on doing what you do. <3

And yes, I also love that you play WOW (ally/horde? what server you on, eh?) and like geeky things...we can like Star Trek AND have fabulous makeup, thank you!

I used it this morning!

To me it smells like marshmellow peeps and cotton candy and vanilla all rolled into one. Way sweeter than what I usually like, but it's kinda addicting! I really like the scent. Plus, after a wiff of me out of the shower, my sweety told me I smelled like food. *wicked grin*

Thank you so much!

LOL!!!! Oh brilliant simply brilliant! It always worries me that my geeky bits turn people off! Especially when mid cosmetic I turn to Doctor Who or Masterpiece Theater lol!

It's awesome you enjoy reading that :)

horde but I'm a switch. Thrall is my normal spot but I'm also on Stormscale. how about you?

hells makeup and star trek are the awesome ;)


Cheers love and thanks for the super comment :) Please come back soon as we can discuss geek and cosmetic ;)

hey dd!

Mmmm yes! And a little touch of sweetness ;)

hehe ;) So good you wanna eat it up yummie!!

Can't wait till christmas for more by chance?

Blogger Decorative Diva said...

You know I'm gonna have to buy a bottle now! Being told I smell like Marshmellow peeps was just too amusing :) It is very sweet, but it's a good sweet. It's not cloying or headache inducing sweet.

July 31, 2008 at 4:15 PM  
Blogger the Muse said...

w00t! I wish I'd filled the bottle more now for you. SF isn't for everyone so I wasn't sure if you'd love it. Darn! Kick self!

hehehe! marshmellow peeps is a novelty!

July 31, 2008 at 4:31 PM  
Blogger Decorative Diva said...

Oh no!
Gave me the perfect amount to tell whether I'd like it or not. Thank you so much for that!

It's a really interesting scent, because I swear, I'd never think of making something that smells like marshmellow peeps, and all the goodness that smell evokes in me (and in my hubby), for the shower, but it's great. I can totally see why it's one of your favs!

July 31, 2008 at 4:37 PM  
Blogger the Muse said...

no problemo dd :)

Glad you enjoyed it!

now you should shower together and experience the joys of snow fairy lol!


I simply adore it. So girlish!
