Pre-spring blog break

some ecardHello!  Again, while I don't think anyone is positively dying to know my whereabouts, the compulsive side of me felt the need to officially announce that I'm taking a little break from the blog.  As you know, I'm feeling less than positive about it lately, and I also desperately need time to work on makeup-related things that I can't get to while writing and taking photos.  Namely, I plan on doing a lot of decluttering, re-organizing and inventory updating.  It would also be nice to, you know, enjoy a couple weekends that aren't entirely spent blogging - I'd like to maybe read a book (one that's not for review here), color, bake, spend time with family, etc.  

I'll be back in a few weeks, hopefully feeling refreshed.  In the meantime, please be sure to keep up with me on Instagram and Twitter, and check out the archives if you want something to read.  :)

Hi Ally! Thank you so much for the good wishes! I hope I enjoy a little time off too. As always, thank you for reading and commenting!


Please enjoy your break!! As much as I love your feeds and this blog, my heart broke for how you've been feeling about it lately. You should absolutely not miss out on life to just feel frustrated, but I know that you can find a way to fit this fantastic work into your life without letting it consume it. You're amazing, ALL OF THIS is amazing, and I can't wait until the anniversary! We'll be here when you get back.

Hi there! Thank you so much for the very kind words, I got a little teary, LOL! I'm so glad you like the Museum and I so appreciate your unwavering support! Thank you also for sticking around through this little break. :)


Just found about this blog a few days ago from Laura’s (Bobbi brown enthusiast) Instagram page. I really think you have an awesome collection. Loved the shimmer brick post- you have them all! And then I checked out this website and I was so surprised at the history and research side of things. So neat and I think you have a really nice, well-informed, well-read, educated, but still accessible perspective. Please don’t give up on your wonderful, unique, and special dream. I wish I could help but I am a college student that recently started looking into makeup about a year ago.

I really think you have something special so even though a well-deserved break and less emphasis for a while might happen please don’t give up.

Best wishes,

MM Curator
