On My Mind: May 2012

This month's On My Mind post is actually based on the questions from the January 2012 issue of InStyle Magazine.
On My Mind InStyle♥What's your beauty pet peeve?
♥What do you always travel with?
♥What do you do when you want to unwind?
♥What are you counting down the days until?
What's on your mind this month?
And the winner of the Just Jen custom shirt giveaway is...
Diana and her "I Heart Owls" shirt!

I love this post :-)

The Dainty Dolls House said... pet peeve...too much fake tan, an orange streaky glow is not the best for anyone or their clothes, I travel with too much stuff, I always find I didn't wear much of what I packed because I may have shopped a bit while at my destination - so it takes longer to pack to go home. I listen to soft music to unwind or take a warm bath :) Not really counting down the days to anything at the moment - well maybe a bit for moving house! But, it's not an every day count down!! These were fab!! Have a super day :) x

Tanvi said...

A wrong shade of foundation is major pet peeve too. But then I have too many pet peeve to list :P

Hi Muse, great post!
*What's your beauty pet peeve? wearing really bad chip nail polish.
*What do you always travel with? More than enough, you're never too sure.
*What do you do when you want to unwind? Read a good book.
*What are you counting down the days until? Summer!

Sam said...

Hi dear, these are always fun and I look forward to them. I have the same pet peeve about eyeliner, especially when it smudges. I unwind with good coffee and good ambient music. I am the opposite - I actually travel with the minimum of everything, lol.

Kashaya said...

Oh I love Instyle Magazine.=)

As a respons to your question: The Luminess Tan system cost $159.00 at

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

Ellie said...

This is such a cool post! I definitely travel with wayyy too many accessories. Love the questions


Sonshu said...

I totally agree with the pet peeves part. And oohhh have a great journey on your trip. :)

And I travel with waaaay too many of both of them. So cant travel light!


P.S: New post is up!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Mmmm sounds like you know how to unwind. I could go for some white wine and 90s music right now lol. ;)

My beauty pet peeve is nude lipstick (on myself). I look like a giant blob with no lips and it's disgusting.

I always travel with my electric tootbrush and Hana hair dryer.

When I want to unwind, I usually have a glass of red wine and watch one of my favorite tv shows (Three's Company, Arrested Development, Golden Girls, etc).

And finally, I've been counting down the days until I hear back from grad schools so I know what my future has in store for me lol.

I hope you have an awesome week! xoxox

Bonnie said...

Rocking out to 90s music sounds a lot like my life. I'm not sorry.

Diana said...

I loved 3EB, reminds me of all those 90s movies with Jennifer Love Hewitt in them!

Sounds like you have a fun vacation coming up...enjoy!

YAY I won, Im so excited!! Thank you so much! I hope you had a lovely weekend! xoxo

Emmy said...

LOL on the too many stuff when you travel:) And yes, I hate foundations that don't match too!

Tara said...

My beauty pet peeve is undoubtedly my oily skin that I can never keep under control. I feel like it just ruins my whole look when I put makeup on!

Fashion Tales.... said...

Yeah, it's used to be totally difficult to match my shade, but I found a great brand now. Uggh, I LOVE boats, and want to be on one NOW!! haha. Happy Monday! -xo

lisacng said...

I hate eyeshadow creases! I use primer and it doesn't help by the end of the day, I'm too lazy to reapply!

Elle Sees said...

Bad eyeliner or when ppl bronze their whole face with glittery bronzer

LV said...

I love this post! I can relate to the foundation pet peeve, for years I was never able to find one that didn't make me look orange, which is probably why I don't wear it. I love 70's music:-) It is great for unwinding, or I order my favorite takeout and watch all of those old shows from a simpler time...LOL (Golden Girls, Cosby Show, Threes Company, Brady Bunch...)

Ria said...

I definitely want to be on a boat somewhere. I wonder why I'm not on a boat more often haha. Incorrect foundation is AWFUL.


I'm with you on traveling with WAY too many accessories :) xoxo

JustPatience said...

Great article. I tend to travel with so many shoes too :)

Couture Carrie said...

Francesca Romana Capizzi said...

Cafe Fashionista said...

Shoes are my vice whenever I travel - I always pack far too many pairs! :P

Sara said...

What Sadie Did said...

I am WITH you on the eyeliner thing! I have had to go back to liquid liner cos I found the black kohl liners left smudges on my eyelids that I never knew were there till too late! :)
