New Features @ Musings of a Muse

Hey pretty ladies (and guys),

I wanted to let you know of a few new features on Musings if you haven't already noticed 'em!

Towards the left hand column of my blog I've added a translation device for translating pages into your native language. Just click your country flag and any entry with be translated!

Nifty right? I felt this was particular useful for the many hits I get from China and Europe. Hopefully you'll find it useful!

Above that you'll notice a "Sale" graphic. Click this and it'll bring you to my sale page. At the moment it's kinda small but it'll get larger soon! All items on the sale page are items I purchased with my own money. I ship International as well! Many people asked me about selling items and I never considered it but I decided why not!

On the right hand side of the column you'll see a link that says "Feeling Lucky?" when clicked this will magically transport you to a random blog post or review! Kinda a fun way to add a little variety into your Musing experience!

And finally above my header I now have a Home, About, E-mail, Press, Link, Other Locations, and Disclaimer button.

The Home button will take you back to the first page of my blog when you've become entangled deep into my blog and can't find the 1st page just click it! The About section is obviously about your dear Muse, Click E-mail to E-mail me (Warning: I take ages to reply since Musings generates a gazillion e-mails daily!), Press is an obvious one, Link Love has all the links I visit and love, Where the Muse Resides or Other Locations has places that you'll find me when I'm not hanging out here, and finally a Disclaimer button warning you against the hazards of listening to what I say hehe.

That's about everything!

I hope these new features will make you experience at Musings an easier, happy one! If there is something I can do to make your reading experience here more pleasing do tell me!

Thanks for visiting daily!

Sorry for disappearing. I got ill last week but am on the mend. How are you? I hope you are well.

I like your new features! Your webpage is always fun to look at. I always giggle when I see the banner change with the season.

I enjoyed your review of Lavshuca. Lavshuca does a nice job with base makeup. The loose powder is amazing for the price and I am rather fond of the powder foundation. Bummer about the new eye palettes though.

I am waiting anxiously for a mini haul from Japan. Has your J-haul arrived yet?

I am a bit annoyed at the moment - a jerk on the freeway having a temper tantrum and driving like a maniac. He cut someone off and then slammed on the brakes. Then we all had to slam on our brakes, grr... It's unusual behavior here in the upper midwest. It's his car and the karma will be certain to come back to haunt him. I'm just glad no one was hurt.

The Blackheads Be Gone article made me giggle. Whatever works for blackheads sounds good to me. Now I am curious.

I am waiting for the last collections to be released later this week. Are there any others that caught your eye?

Please excuse the rambling. I am looking forward to your thoughts on your items from Japan!

Lots of love!

Hey Musey,

thanks for all the new features, I´ll definitely keep an eye on your sales page.
The translation device is hilarious (although I know it is not meant to be funny, it IS!), thank God I´m able to understand your musings directly! LOL!

hey betsy!

It's ok! I do it too as you might have noticed lol!

All ok?

I'm great! Hanging in.

Thanks! I always worry I'm overkill!

LOL it'll be changing very soon with the season :)

I haven't tried the powder foundation but the loose powder is grand. Loving the new foundation. I believe it's replaced the moisture foundation in the pretty jar.

Did you like the selection of fall colors in the palette? Seemed blah to me.

Most of my haul has arrived. i've still got the review the JS and the Visee but now I'm waiting for my MG stuff and some stuff from CoD.

Lord we get those crazy loser drivers too don't feel bad. Most new yorkers have road rage :P

LOL it's completely useless but I swear I use it daily and I've convinced myself it works lol!

At the moment the only thing I could justify was the two newest singles from MD. Although I was tempted by the palette $60 USD is a bit too crazy for me when I'm trying hard to be good. I have a load of Korean stuff coming as well so I'm being as good as I can.

I love when you ramble..ramble please :) I never get to talk to you and your one of my fav people to speak to you :) so ramble some more please hehe!

I've been reading your blog for a while but commenting for the first time. So many reviews and good information^^. I was curious about the translation device and tried it. I get rather funny translations of your blog entries. I guess we can't replace manual translations just yet but it's a nice try.

hi there kit!

Thanks for reading musings :) I appreciate it greatly and I'm glad that the information is useful to you.

I firgured as much :( Sadly it relies on the google translation device to do the translating. In all honesty we all know how that works :)

Plus many of the words and phrases I use are probably difficult to translate into a different language.

I wanted to keep this option available anyway for readers that can't speak or read any english...hopefully it's of some tiny help when trying to figure out what I am saying :)

Thanks for telling me!

Hope we speak again soon!
