Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette | Love, Catherine

Too Faced recently killed off the eyeshadow game for every other brand with their gorgeous new Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette, aka. the mother of all neutral palettes. The floral packaging with the little bunnies and birds is so romantic and beautiful, and the names of the shades are so flippin' cute I just can't deal. Bunny Nose, Kittens, Pink Cheeks, Fairy Tale, umm sorry but you can't tell me that isn't all kinds of adorable. 'Cos it is.

Jurlique Rose Petal Limited Edition 2017

Jurlique Rose Petal Limited Edition 2017

I always get so excited when brands release beautiful limited edition versions of their most popular products, especially when it's from Jurlique which is one of my favourite skincare brands! They state that they care deeply about the purity of their skincare which is why they grow and extract many of their natural ingredients directly from their farm in Australia. I really feel like the brand truly care about their products and have a passion for the way in which they carefully produce them.

ASOS Bunny Flats | Love, Catherine

If you think you have your spending under control, pop all of your recent purchases into a blog post and you'll see that you're very much mistaken. Oops. But cute things just have to be blogged about...don't they?

ASOS |  Bunny Flats
I spotted these adorable shoes whilst browsing ASOS and instantly needed them. They have the cutest little bunny design with a heart shaped nose and glittery pink ears, and they have the prettiest iridescence in different lights. They even have little white pom pom tails on the back of the shoe! My boyfriend thinks they're hideous but what does he know *sassy emoji*.

TOO FACED |  Natural Love Palette
The neutral palette of dreams! As soon as I heard about this limited edition release from Too Faced I was all over it, and I ordered it straight from the Too Faced site they day it came out as I was far too impatient to wait for the UK release. Luckily they were offering free shipping at the time and I wasn't charged for customs, phew. The palette itself is just stunning and I will definitely swatch it in a blog post soon!

As I'd previously mentioned in my  March Photo Diary, I splurged on the new limited edition highlighter from Becca. I'm already a massive fan of the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, the quality is so intense and velvety, so I knew I'd love this newbie. It's a gorgeous pearly pale lavender with a really unique iridescent sheen. It's like a barbie/mermaid hybrid and is so pretty. Plus that packaging though...my heart can't cope.

Whilst not being particularly Spring themed, I did pick up a Twilight bath bomb which is one of my favourites from Lush. I love the cute lilac pink design with the moon and stars, and it has a relaxing scent of sweet lavender with a creamy almost caramel scented undertone. It releases frothy swirls of soft pink and baby blue and is so pretty!

One of those 'the packaging made me buy it' purchases. Can you blame me though when it's baby pink with ribbons AND roses. It's a dusting powder that you can use with the puff after a bath or shower which leaves your skin feeling silky soft and delicately fragranced. It has a very fresh, floral scent which smells so lovely and I think women of all different ages will love it. It will make for such a pretty dressing table addition.

Which of my Spring purchases is your favourite?

March 2017 | Photo Diary

March 2017 Photo Diary | Love, Catherine

I'm so excited that it's finally Spring, which I've come to the conclusion is my favourite season. I just love that the cold harsh weather gradually fades, we finally get lighter days and evenings (a bloggers dream), the trees and flowers begin to bloom, the Easter baking is definitely the cutest (& yummiest) and we can look forward to more sunny days, ice creams and picnics in Summer! Which season is your favourite? Anyway... here's some of my favourite photos from March!

MAC Mariah Carey | Love, Catherine
Getting A New Camera

So after taking all of my photos directly from my faithful iPhone for years, I finally have a fancy DSLR camera and I'm so excited! I'm still getting to grips with using it so for now you may only see the pretty pictures it takes occasionally (like in this post). I'm also thinking of attempting a YouTube channel at some point as I do often get asked if I have one, and it's something I'd love to try, although don't hold out on my editing skills being anything incredible! Is that something you'd like to see?

Hello Kitty OPI | Love, Catherine
Pale Pink & Rose Gold Glitter Mani

I wanted to take advantage of the fact that my nails had grown to a nice length and I decided I don't use my pretty Hello Kitty OPI nail polish enough. So created a soft pink mani with a rose gold glitter from Barry M named Duchess. Isn't the Hello Kitty bottle so cute?! This shade is called Let's Be Friends. Oh and my nails chipped and broke basically straight after taking this picture, *woe is me*.

Bambi Dreams And Wishes Mug | Love, Catherine
Dream And Wishes Bambi Hot Chocolate

How lovely is this Bambi mug with the Dreams and Wishes design? It's from the Disney Magical Moments range which you may still be able to find on eBay. I maay have also purchased the Princess mug with Marie on it from Aristocats (makeup and cute mugs will be the death of me.) I made an Easter themed hot chocolate with these sweet little bunny and chick marshmallows. At what point in the year does it become weird to still be drinking hot chocolate?...

Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector | Love, Catherine
Becca Prismatic Amethyst Highlight

I was totally influenced by my lovely friend Freya for this purchase! It's a limited edition Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector called Prismatic Amethyst which is the prettiest pale lavender with an iridescent glow, although it isn't really coming across in this photo. It's honestly so gorgeous and much more wearable than you'd think.

Dunelm Toulouse Chest Of Drawers | Love, Catherine
Pretty New Furniture

I have a love for pretty white furniture and the only thing clashing in my bedroom was my chest of drawers which I finally decided to give an upgrade. I chose this pretty Toulouse set from Dunelm which looks so girly and lovely don't you think?

Beauty And The Beast Cupcakes | Love, Catherine
Beauty And The Beast Cupcakes

I went to watch the new Beauty And The Beast film on Mother's Day and I loved it. I thought the whole set design and costumes were amazing and I loved the whole Marie Antoinette Parisian vibes, so pretty! I felt inspired to make some cupcakes to match the film and I'm so pleased with how they turned out as I'd not made anything for a while. Which design is your favourite? I think I love the book the most!

Hair Half Up | Love, Catherine

I've actually had my hair done since this photo, I'd left it for a whole six months so my roots were looking a bit disastrous and wearing it half up seemed to sort of disguise it a little. I decided to have balayage and get my roots blended in a little, so it doesn't look too different now, but much better!

Hope you had a lovely March!
