Bang for your Buck Palettes

Ready-made palettes are such a good way to get a ‘bang for your buck’.
It can add up to be much cheaper than to purchase these eye shadows individually.

Urban Decay’s Naked Palette 1 & 2 were a big craze in the beauty world, but here is an affordable dupe that has been recommended by other make-up lovers.

It Feels Like Spring

Last week Mother Nature gave us a taste of spring for a day. It was such a wonderful sunny day. I could feel the warmth on the back of my legs when I went on my work break. It was such a nice little pick-me-up.

The next few days after there was strong winds, rain, and even snow. Hmph.

But…tomorrow it’ll be nice and warm again!! Hopefully it will be the beginning of spring!

I’m pretty excited and to welcome the warm weather, I decided to paint my nails a BRIGHT colour! 🙂
