The Dreamy Transitional Eyeshadow Palette

It's almost Autumn! (Frantically pulls out wooly jumpers, tartan scarves and chelsea boots) AKA. my favourite season.

When Urban Decay very kindly sent me the new oh-so-dreamy Naked Heat palette I knew this would be my go-to transitional palette for the transition from Summer to Autumn (YAY!)

This is no exception to the other additions to the Naked family, with highly pigmented eyeshadows and gorgeous colours that are bound to make any eye colour pop- if you're sat there wondering if you need this in your makeup collection then the answer is YES SISTER, you do.

I love the array of colours that this palette has, from a stunning champagne to beautiful burgundy's- this will not be leaving my makeup bag anytime soon.

What do you think of the new Urban Decay Heat Palette? if you love this just as much as I do, you can find it here.

The Best Degustabox Yet?! August 2017

This month's Degustabox* was definitely a treat! 
The theme for August's box is 'Back to School' and contains lots of yummy treats to help tackle the back to school blues. 

This month's box contained: 

Seabrook Crisps 
These were delicious! Considering Seabrook are quite a household brand, I was surprised that i'd never tried these before! They were full of flavour and a very nice lunchtime treat for work. 

Pick uP! Black N White 
I've already had these before and I absolutely love them, they are a biscuit treat with a layer of white chocolate in between them- delicious! 

Hellmans Mayonnaise 
This is such a handy thing to have to put back in the cupboards as almost everyone loves mayonnaise! and it makes the perfect addition to a sandwich. 

Despite being 20 I'm very excited at the thought of jelly in my work lunch! these would be perfect if you have children as a quick treat or something special to add to their lunches.

Light Bites Popped Chips 
These aren't really my thing so i've passed these on for someone else to try although i'm sure they're delicious. 

Maggi Noodles 
As with the above, I'm not really into noodles so have passed these on to a  loving home for someone else to enjoy. 

Coconut Water, Ginger & Vodka 
As mentioned before, you can order either an alcoholic or non-alcoholic Degustabox deepening on your preferences, this sounds like a lovely summer BBQ treat or a pick me up.

Tobacco Green Pepper Sauce
The thought of this terrifies me! I cannot deal with spicy food, although I've kept this and I will attempt to use it somehow- any suggestions? 

I love the bottles for this- they're wearing Bikinis! I love Orangina so this was a lovely addition to the box. 

Refreshers Softies
I love the original refreshers so I was excited to see these, they were lovely-very sour but lovely! 

Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Toffee 
Gimme all the cadbury's chocolate! I love it when they bring out new variations of Cadbury's chocolate, i'm yet to find a variation that I don't like! I'm looking forward to settling down to watch TV tonight and enjoying this.

CurlyWurly Squirlies 
We've had these before so already knew we'd love these! they're such a nostalgic treat and the perfect way to enjoy a childhood treat. 

What do you think of this month's degustabox? 

* please note that I was sent both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic additions. 

The lovely people over at Degustabox have given me a discount code for my readers, to get money off of your next Degustabox you can use the code PVDUM
