Urban Decay Naked Honey

Since moving out of my family home and having to adult the sh*t out of life, my passion for all things beauty related has had to take a back seat, for both financial and crazy busy life reasons.
But seen as I have all other naked pallets I just NEEDED to add this one to the collection.
And I have zero regrets. For the first time in possible forever, I have found an eyeshadow palettes where I use and love every single shade.
I may buy pallettes an love curtains shades but theres always at least 1 or 2 shades that I would never reach for or wear. Whereas this palette is great.
I have fairly fair skin with dark brown eyes, eyebrows and medium brown hair which is balayaged and all of these shades work so well on my complexion.
Highly, highly recommend.

I Moved Out of my Family Home

This whole year has been some sort of whirlwind. I’ve blinked and it’s somehow September - how did that happen ?
A lot has happened and one of the main things is that I’ve moved out of my family home where I lived my whole life up until this point. 
I was definitely ready to move out, yet I’m glad I waited and got prepared with a lot of homeware essentials.
Here’s a peek at my home so far

Here's an outfit of the night for the evening of a Wedding.

I may have taken the scissors to the hem of the dress... There was a longer layer of lace around the very bottom. As I'm only 5ft2 this just didn't look right on me, but i loved the general look of the outfit.

The dress is from Pretty Little Thing - £35

The Black heels are from ASOS - £40

The black clutch is a few years old, but was from New Look

Urban Decay // Naked RELOADED

Its that time again, when Urban Decay bring out another 'Naked' palette. And of course, i apparently need them all! Im not sure if this is a collection, or an addiction at this stage. But whatever it is, I'm ok with it!

Urban Decay's newest addition to the Naked family is a very natural toned palette. There are lots of bronzey, nude and earthy toned colours. Its so wearable for every day use, which is another reason why i could justify purchasing this palette because i knew i would get loads of wear out of it. 

I have had this palette a few weeks now, and i have used every single shade, which is unusual for me to say about a palette. Usually theres at least 1, 2 or even more colours that i wouldn't ever use. But not with this pallet.

Theres a mixture of cool and warmer toned shades in the palette which makes it so diverse and wearable for all skin tones. It really is a beautiful palette.

Unboxing // GUCCI Key Case

 I have recently treated myself to the Gucci key case. I have the possibly unrealistic idea in my head that one day i will be the very proud owner of a gorgeous Gucci handbag. And with that in mind i had been thinking about other 'small leather goods' that would be useful to also have. 
When i treat myself to this ultimate gift i would definitely want to look after the handbag as much as possible. Which had me thinking about the fact of having keys in previous bags had actually damaged the lining before. I, of course, wouldn't want this to happen to a very expensive bag so i have tried to do the 'sensible' thing of purchasing a small coin purse and this key case in preparation. And, most importantly, i love it!!

BALAYAGE // Hair Transformation

Recently my hair underwent a big refresh ready for spring and summer.
My 'before' hair had the remainders of ombre/balayage from years prior. It was brassy and warm toned and NOT how i wanted it!
I asked for a cool toned balayage at the hairdressers, and i love the results.
The process took around 3 hours from start to finish, it took a lot of time and patience (mainly for the hairdresser).
My hair is naturally fairly warm toned, so my hair had to be lifted, coloured and toned to enable a cooler tone throughout my hair.
I kept my natural hair colour at my roots, so the hair dye was blended into my natural colour. Not all hairdressers agree to do it this way as its more difficult to get a good blend between shades, but as my roots were natural my hair lifted well and it wasn't as difficult to blend.
