My favourite eyeshadow palette – Morphe 35F.

Photo taken from the Morphe Brushes website

Hey all! How’s your Friday? Today I thought I’d have a play with my Morphe 35F palette and share the look. I actually think I love this palette more than my ABH Modern Renaissance palette! There isn’t much fallout from the Morphe eyeshadows (unlike Modern Renaissance) and they are sooo buttery and easy to work with!

There are some really gorgeous shades in this palette. Perfect for autumn time! I love wearing them any time of the year though. The palette is currently available from Beauty Bay for £22.50. If you’re after a new eyeshadow palette then definitely check out the Morphe ones. I’d loooove to get more! Do any of you own a Morphe palette? Which ones do you have? 

A sneaky makeup peak… 

A sneaky peak as to what’s coming up on the blog! 😀 Thank you Medusa’s Makeup! I can’t wait to share this with you guys!

Book Mail! 

Ahhh look what dropped on my doormat this morning! 


Thank you Penguin Random House! Can’t wait to review Bonfire by Krysten Ritter! I am actually stupidly excited to have received this! I love Krysten as an actress so I can’t wait to read her new book! All being well I shall start it tonight once Willow is in bed!

Here’s the blurb:

Should you ever go back?

It has been ten years since Abby Williams left home and scrubbed away all visible evidence of her small town roots. Now working as an environmental lawyer in Chicago, she has a thriving career, a modern apartment, and her pick of meaningless one-night stands.

But when a new case takes her back home to Barrens, Indiana, the life Abby painstakingly created begins to crack. Tasked with investigating Optimal Plastics, the town’s most high-profile company and economic heart, Abby begins to find strange connections to Barrens’ biggest scandal from more than a decade ago involving the popular Kaycee Mitchell and her closest friends—just before Kaycee disappeared for good.

Abby knows the key to solving any case lies in the weak spots, the unanswered questions. But as Abby tries to find out what really happened to Kaycee, she unearths an even more disturbing secret—a ritual called “The Game,” which will threaten the reputations, and lives, of the community and risk exposing a darkness that may consume her.

With tantalizing twists, slow-burning suspense, and a remote, rural town of just five claustrophobic miles, Bonfire is a dark exploration of the question: can you ever outrun your past?

Sounds pretty cool, right? Review coming soon!

Two Parties and Today’s Makeup! 

Hey guys! How’s your Sunday? Today we had two parties to go to! The first one was a first birthday party and it was pirate themed! Of course we had to dress little Willow up so she could join in the fun! There was a bouncy castle there too! We put Willow on it and bounced her up and down which she loved but as soon as we let go of her so she could have a go by herself, she was having none of it, got all shy and wanted me or Aled to pick her up so she could cuddle into us. She much preferred chasing balloons and blowing into and empty gift wrap roll haha! Oh and eating! I think that was her fave part! 😂 Thought I’d share with you all a piccy of her in her outfit.


The second party we went to was an afternoon tea at Aled’s parents for his mum’s birthday. We all had such a lovely time! Willow thoroughly enjoyed the cake haha!

This was today’s makeup look.

I’ve used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance on my eyes. Gosh I love this palette! It’s so darn pigmented! Especially when you wet or spritz your brush! If you haven’t done it, do! It also stops fall out which,  yay! Unfortunately I didn’t have time to experiment and try something new, so this had to do.

That’s all for today, guys. Hopefully see you soon with another post! 😀 

Candy Corn Scented Yankee Candle Mini Review.

Hey guys! How’s your weekend going? Just a very short post today I’m afraid…. 

Got my Yankee Candle lit this evening. Candy Corn has to be my fave Yankee Candle scent! Unlike my other Yankees, this gorgeous sweet smell just lingers all round my flat! It’s beautiful! 

I’m trying to use up my candles as I have quite a few so, of late, I’ve been making a concerted effort to light them each night.  If anyone has any other scented candles to recommend please let me know. I’d love to try them. Especially if they’re vegan friendly!

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter review. 


I love Makeup Revolution’s vivid baked highlighter in golden lights. You can use a quick swirl of the highlighter for a natural glow, giving a flawless look to your skin. Sooo easy to apply and blend. You literally only need a tiny bit for that subtle glow or a little bit more to really blind them! 

Dare I say it’s better than Jeffree Star’s Skin Frosts?? Yes! And at £3 it’s a fraction of the cost! I shall definitely be purchasing again! On my eyes I’ve used the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette and on my lips the Morphe liquid lipstick in School Girl.

I bought my Vivid Baked Highlighter from Superdrug but you can also purchase it online from Tam Beauty.

Note: The makeup products I have used are either cruelty free or vegan! 😀 🐰

World Friendship Day has been and gone but friends last forever!

Sunday was World Friendship day so I surprised my bestie of 17 years, Kat, with a yummy selection box from Hotel Chocolat! Yesterday the postie knocks at my door with a parcel! It was a gift from Kat! She’d got me back hahaha!

Aren’t they gorgeous?! She knows me so well! Now I just need some pretty candles to go in them! Any suggestions on the perfect candles for these holders?

E.L.F Flawless Finish Foundation and Volumizing and Defining Mascara Review. 

Hey guys! I recently got my hands on the E.L.F Flawless Finish foundation and Volumizing and Defining mascara so I thought I’d let you know what I thought of them. The foundation is of a liquid consistency and I’d say it gives a medium coverage. I really liked this foundation. It went on really well and smelled lovely which is an added bonus! It did go a little patchy but more of a spritz of setting spray on my blender may fix that in the future. The foundation has quite a light feel to once on my skin which is perfect for the this hot weather.

The mascara? I love! There’s no clumpyness and it really did make them more volumised and noticeable! Not that you can tell by my photograph taking skills below  haha but you can definitely tell I’m wearing mascara which, usually, you can’t.

The foundation retails at £7.50 and the mascara retails at £3.00! I purchased them from Superdrug but you can buy direct from E.L.F. There is a wider range of products on E.L.F’s and they can also have some great sales on too so it’s worth checking out!
Do you own any E.L.F products? Let me know in the comments below!

MOTD – Jeffree Star’s Androgyny eyeshadow palette and liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin 

It’s been a while since I talked about anything beauty related (my favourite thing next to reading) so I thought I’d share a look I recently did using Jeffree Star’s Androgyny eyeshadow palette and his velour liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin. I adore this vegan makeup brand. His eyeshadow palettes are super pigmented and his liquid lipsticks stay on for hours. Celebrity Skin is definitely my favourite out of the lippy shades.
