Makeup Revolution - Hard Day Palette

I got this palette all the way back at Christmas and I was so happy to see it under the tree. There's always so many things I want from Makeup Revolution and the fact they are so cheap is very much a bonus. I, however, haven't bought from them for quite some time, sadly, due to the insane amount of spending (on others may I add) and saving we're currently doing. Hard Day is a mix of earthy toned shades, a couple of bronze/gold tone and purple shades. It's the perfect mix of mattes and shimmers. Inside the Salvation palette are 18 shades, a sponge applicator and a built in mirror.

Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements Palette - Review

 Today is my Birthday... I can hardly believe I'm 24 years old, a mere 6 years away from the big 30. I don't have many plans for Birthday celebrations, it being a week day and everyone being at work, but my Mum and Step-dad have invited me for Birthday tea and hopefully a piece of cake. I love to see Birthday Haul's or What I got for my Birthday posts so, of course, I'll do a big Birthday post early next week. Today, however, I bring you a new release from Makeup Revolution. The Iconic Elements palette's been out for around a week now and I've heard many, many good reviews. If you are after the Urban Decay Naked Basics and Naked Basics 2 palettes then this, I've heard, is a good dupe (of both) and at a fraction of the price at just £4 it's well worth picking up.

A Sophie Kinsella Duo - Book Review

My Sophie Kinsella book addiction is swiftly coming to an end. Over the last couple of months I've read 5 out of 6 of the stand-alone books Sophie's wrote. I still have one to read, but decided it was time to start reading The Maze Runner series before the second film is released in September, and with 4 in the series it may take some time. My favourite is I've Got Your Number, a read I highly recommend.

The Undomestic Goddess - Samantha is a lawyer living in London. She works all hours, doesn't have a personal life and cares only about the partnership she's on her way to getting. It's not long until working all hours catch up with her, one that costs her her career. In a state of shock and the partnership down the drain, Samantha get's on a train and finds herself in the middle of nowhere. She's no idea where she is, and without any signal and a few to many drinks it's likely she won't be going anywhere soon. That's until the morning after the night before Samantha finds herself waking up in a strange bed and remembers she's accepted a maids job. Not only does she now have to pretend to be a maid, she'll have to learn to cook, clean, change beds and serve to the people of the house, all whilst doing curtseys and falling in love with the gardner.

Witch Naturally Clear Skincare Range - My Thoughts

Some time ago I was fortunate enough to win this trio from the Witch naturally clear skincare range. Now the bottle of face wash is completely empty I thought it was about time I wrote a review. One of the things I love about Witch skincare is how affordable it is, it's also widely available, being stocked in most Boots stores. I was sent the Blemish Stick - £2.70, Bursting Beads Face Wash - £3.99 and Blackhead Clearing Gel - £4.99. I've not had the best skin for the last couple of years, I've had breakouts, little pimple spots, you name it I've had it. I don't know why I have such bad skin right now, all I can think of is the fact my skin was relatively acne free in my teen years. Right now, it's not the best it's ever been, not blemish free, but it could be a lot worse.
