25 Things You Can Buy Instead Of An Eyeshadow Palette

As a make up hoarder, my favourite type of make-up is an eyeshadow palette. I have more than I can count but I love them all and adore them with equal love. Although eyeshadow palettes are my favourite, I have a hefty and constantly growing collection of every other type of make-up too. In fact, my current lipstick collection is getting quite out of hand now. Especially since I had to buy a whole extra set of make-up drawers just to house them all. When I think about the value of my make up collection, I'm quite ashamed to say it's almost the same as my engagement ring...the one my partner had custom made for me. Yes, my make up collection is huge, ever growing and a slight obsession.

"On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink" Spectrum x Mean Girls

Mean Girls. Still one of the greatest chick-flicks ever made. I loved it then, and I love it now. And if I ever have a daughter, we'll be watching it together in her teens. It's like a right of passage as a teenage girl isn't it?! I feel like every girl lives vicariously through it as it features the full spectrum of teenage troubles...with some amazing one liners thrown in along the way. One liners so good we still use them now. And if you don't, well, "Boo, you Whore."

So imagine my pure joy when I heard they were releasing a brand new fragrance...

The Spring Skin Edit

Let's pretend that it's actually what it's supposed to be right now - SPRING! Because I'm sure she's right around the corner, waiting to lavish us with blossom, sunshine and tulips...That's what I keep telling myself anyway! Either way, spring will be here soon and it's time to transition out of our winter skincare for some more spring appropriate products.

How Time Flies

Anyone else wondering just where this year is going? Because, ME! After the never-ending month that was January, this year has made up for it by speeding past at the speed of light and suddenly we're in spring - almost. (If someone could just let the weather know this, that would be grand.) We're midway through March, halfway through Lent and almost at Easter Bunny visit time. WHERE IS THIS YEAR GOING?!

Benefit Gold Rush: World Exclusive at Cult Beauty!

No quicker had this arrived in my hands, than I had fallen in love with it. It's been a while since I tried a new Benefit powder - sticking to my trusting Hoola as a creature of habit, I've been waiting for something like this. I just didn't know it. So when it arrived, it set my heart ablaze, which is coincidental because it looks like actual fiery gold...
