Wonderful Dreams

L-R: Midnight Swim, Crystal Ball, Marron Glacé, Chantilly Lace
L-R: Hot Cocoa, Pretty Sunrise, Toasted Almond, Soft Cookie

Hi everyone,
Following my last post, I thought I'd share one of my Christmas presents with you as it's also a Sephora palette that my lovely brother got for me. It's called Wonderful Dreams and is a little eyeshadow palette, perfect for on the go makeup. The palette has eight different eyeshadows, both matte and shimmer, and light and dark. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it because the shades are so gorgeous. There's something for everyone in this palette, whether you're going for a smokey eye or just throwing on some matte shadow. 
I used Marron Glacé all over the lid and topped it with some Pretty Sunrise on the middle of the lid so that it catches the light nicely.
I hope you enjoy this little post on this adorable palette and I hope you all had a great Christmas!

Wishes Come True

Take A Selfie, Café Latte, Creamy Cashmere
Friday Night, Scented Candle, Pretty Pearls
Feeling Pretty, Nighttime Glow, Midnight Magnificence

Hi everyone,
So whilst out Christmas shopping I came across this adorable little palette in Sephora. It's by Sephora themselves and is a multi-functional palette called Wishes Come True. It had six eyeshadows, three matte and three shimmer, a gorgeous blush and two highlighters. The eyeshadows are stunning and super pigmented and the highlighters are amazing. The names are adorable and so is the packaging, you pull it apart to open it. 
It's the perfect little palette, especially for travelling and for when you're on the go. It would make such a great Christmas present too!
I used Creamy Cashmere all over the lid, Café Latte in the crease and then Scented Candle over the lid. I feel like Scented Candle would be the perfect Christmas day eyeshadow! I also used Feeling pretty and Midnight Magnificence on my cheeks.
Let me know if you have this palette and your thoughts on it!

Farfetch Discover App & £400 Voucher Giveaway

Hi everyone,
I was recently contacted by the lovely Laurren from Farfetch and given the chance to take part in and also share this giveaway with my readers. If you want to be in with a chance to win a £400 Farfetch voucher, enter by using the Rafflecopter below! The giveaway closes midday on Monday 21st December.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to share the news that there's a new and improved Farfetch discover app. So far it's only available for IOS devices but there will be an Adroid version coming to Playstore soon. Luckily I have my trusty iPad and was able to download the app.
It's super easy to use and the design is very clean and simple which I love. I immediately got addicted to adding things to my wishlist and I always adore having a wishlist option as it makes sorting through favourites so much easier. Be warned though, it can be as addictive as Pinterest!
The app is targeted towards more designer items which means you can window shop through all of the things you can't afford without any snooty stares from sales assistants. I don't often splurge on clothes but I do love pretending I can afford everything.
There are hundreds of designer brands to choose from and I had a lot of fun browsing through the Nike section as I've recently started getting into fitness. The shoes!!! I had to physically remove myself from the situation as I almost bought a couple and I have to save my money for Christmas presents! 
I thought I'd share my top 8 picks on my wishlist with you (yes it's mostly Nike). 

So this shows you a little bit of the app layout itself, as I said it's very easy to use. 6 pairs of Nike shoes, I know. My best friend has got me Nike obsessed. Do I need 6 more pairs? Probably not but a girl can dream right? Look at the polkadot ones!
The polkadot jacket is something I actually saw in the Nike store first, unfortunately they didn't have my size so I was ecstatic to find it on the Farfetch app! And lastly there's a gorgeous fluffy parka from Mr & Mrs Italy. How cosy does that look?
Good luck with the giveaway and I hope you all enjoyed this insight into the Farfetch app!

Muted Colours

I feel like my eyeliner skills have got so much better lately and I absolutely love my Hema liner as it's so easy to use and I can get them nice and even. This time I decided to use a matte shadow as I was feeling like darkening up the look a little. I paired that with a darker matte lip colour. I'm obsessed with the Revlon Matte Balms, they last forever.

Not only is today my lovely little monkey Molly's birthday but it's also my blogs 4th birthday! I haven't exactly been the best at keeping up with it but I'm trying to be more consistent.
My mum baked yummy little dog treats for Molly and then we went on a long walk in the woods as opposed to our usual, boring cycle path walk. Molly was so excited to be going in the car and bounded out of the house just to get to it. As soon as she saw we weren't anywhere near the vets she jumped out of the car with glee and galloped off onto the path. She also got a few extra treats for being such a good girl and not barking at any dogs, humans, leaves falling from the trees, etc...
I can't believe out beautiful baby is already 10 years old, time goes by so fast. But she still looks and acts like a puppy, full of energy and excitement. And she loves her walks despite being stubborn at times.

Satin Taupe & Bubblegum Pink

Lately I've been loving liquid liner and flicks a lot and usually just do that. But I decided to add some eyeshadow because why not. I love how Satin Taupe can be lightly applied and blended to make it a more wearable look for day time. I chose one of my favourite Rimmel lipsticks to go with it as I love the combination of pink and taupe. Hope you're all having a great week!
