Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio Review & Swatches

A few weeks ago I was invited to attend the Urban Decay Summer Bash where they announced the opening of their new store in Eastgate. The venue was chic, the pool was decorated with fun summer inflatables and we got served a light yet scrumptious and refreshing lunch.

Ride or Die Makeup Tag

Hiya bellas, So I’m sure by now you’ve noticed the new look and feel of the blog. If you haven’t, what do you think? I really wanted to update the theme to something more simple and sophisticated. The layout and colours I had before were very much a reflection of one side of my personality but the OCD kicked in and I realised I wanted a bit more structure. I am a perfectionist and choosing just one theme to depict what I like was one of the toughest things ever. I finally decided on a layout based on the types…
