It's not often I do favourites, but I've been so impressed by a few things this month that I thought I'd share them with you in a favourites post. The reason I don't do a monthly favourites is due to not swapping my products round enough - I'm a bit boring like that. Maybe, however, it will give you some inspiration to give my favourites a try.

Is it just me who thinks the year is going insanely fast? March already? The countdown to my Birthday is on and Mothers Day is just around the corner, literally. Today's post is a little gift guide I've put together in the hope of giving you some much needed inspiration for Mothers Day. There is just 2 weeks (15th) to go until the big day its self, and with myself being a mum its something I truly look forward to as well. Now my two are at nursery and school age I love getting homemade cards from them and hopefully being waited over (never, ever going to happen).

Makeup Revolution are well known for their eyeshadow palettes, it's what they do best, and with it being my favourite product I'm always happy to see them bringing out another. This week they've released quite a few palettes under their sister brands name I Heart Makeup, with five coming out just yesterday. You can see those here. I managed to get my hands on the Naked Underneath palette thanks to the lovely Makeup Revolution team.
The Naked Underneath palette is a faux fur palette with a crystal clear 3D heart in the centre. Inside are 16 eye-shadows with both matte and shimmer shades. The palette contains a sponge applicator and a big mirror, making it perfect for traveling purposes. There's a mix of neutral and dark shades which are perfect for taking from day to night. What makes this palette different to any other is the fur. Its certainly different and quirky, which I love, but I can cringe at the slightest feel of materials. Yes, I'm the sort of girl who punches an itch out of my leg if I'm wearing jeans, etc. Weird I know! Its liveable, so don't worry. And its not attracted any dirt just yet.

It's been a whole six months since I was last subscribed to a beauty box. Except the occasional Latest in Beauty box I've pretty much just gone without. I've had some serious green with envy moments whilst admiring them from a far, though. The last few boxes I've seen from Birchbox have had me gripped and wanting to subscribe, so when an email popped into my inbox offering me an unbelievable offer I quickly signed up, once again. I'm currently unsure of how long I will stay subscribed for, but with Valentine's Day just passing and my Birthday at the end of next month I thought I had earned a little beauty treat.
