Halloween Cupcakes


With halloween this Friday, I've decided to do a Halloween themed post. I was a little bit bored over the half-term, and haven't done any baking for ages. So thought it would be perfect to mix the two together - here are my Halloween cupcake! They are not amazing but I thought I'd share them with you. I think this is one of my shortest posts ever!

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2


Urban Decay Naked 2 Basic Pallet Review

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics 
£22.00

How beautiful is the Naked Basics 2 pallet? Once I saw the release of this I knew it I had to get it. When I saw it on Cohorted the other week there was even more reasons to purchase it. I purchased it for £15.40 rather than the full price of £22.00. I didn't get the first Naked Basics because I didn't really like the shades as they are more yellow toned; I prefer this pallet so much more because they are more of taupes and browns.


Five of them are matte and the other satin. Of course they have really good pigmentation, Urban Decay do great eyeshadows. They also have great staying power, without primer they can last around 5 hours. The shades: Skimp(pale nude satin), Stark (pink nude), Frisk (warm grey), Cover (red-brown), Primal (muted brown), Undone (deep, smokey, brown). My favourite shades are primal and frisk but there isn't one shade that I don't like. I have been using the whole pallet everyday, I love it that much. A bonus to this pallet is that you can use some to fill in your eyebrows. 


I love the pallet so much! It's perfect for traveling as it's so small and compact and fits perfectly into your handbag. The pallet also contains a large mirror in the lid. I think the pallet is perfect for someone just getting into makeup or someone who doesn't like to wear much eyeshadow. I have a feeling I'm going to be using this for a long time.

Hello Autumn


The other week on a twitter chat we were talking about autumn and I forgot how much I've missed autumn. My favorite season! The leaves have started to fall while changing from green to a crisp red and brown, when you walk on them they make a crisp sound under your feet. I love the darker nights spent in bed catching up on the world with a mug of hot chocolate under cosy blankets and your duvet while dressed in a monkey onesie. Not wanting to get up in the morning because your duvet is so warm while everywhere has a cold crisp blanket over the top. Everything gets so much better; the clothes, the dark lips, the food. Decorated around every room are lit candles making it feel really cosy and look pretty. I currently have some lit on my desk. The iconic Pumpkin spice latte, this year I'm going to try one as everybody seems to love them. One of my favourite things about Autumn is the fashion and beauty. I love the oversize, woolly jumpers, coats, boots, scarves... everything about A/W fashion. Not only the fashion but the makeup; the dark nail polish colours, navy, black, plum. How can I forget the dark lips, thats one of the best things! I love Rimmel Kate Moss no.107. Also the long warm bubbly baths with your favourite bath bomb from LUSH.

Next is Halloween time to overload on sweets from trickle treating. Then bonfire night (one of my favorites). Wrapped up in coat and gloves, writing your name with sparklers while keeping yourself warm by the roaring bonfire. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 the first firework shoots through the sky. The countdown to Christmas begins! Only 80 days left!
