Welcome to the first edition of The Sunday Edit! I came up with The Sunday Edit because I wanted something on the blog that wasn’t solely about reviewing or featuring a product. Instead I wanted to talk about all the other things I got up to during the previous week because there is more to life than just churning out reviews. At least there is more to my life.
Getting Back to Business
In case you hadn’t noticed, the blog has pretty much inactive for the past few weeks. The reason? I gave myself a fairly bad concussion a few weeks ago. I’m seriously turning into some kind of walking catastrophe these days. It’s been all I can do to look at a computer screen, let alone sit down and actually churn out content. Thankfully, my head is healing and I can finally get back to business. In the next few weeks, you will see more content and different features as I roll out some long awaited changes to go along with the new look of the blog. I’m so looking forward to that as I’ve been working on the new stuff for a long time now and I’m excited to roll it out and for you to see it.
It’s been a pretty good month for me in terms of reading. I was able to tackle five books once again, but unfortunately two of them didn’t really do it for me and as a result I didn’t finish them. But even then, I’m still pretty happy to be back reading with some regularity once again. Fingers crossed that I can keep this up in the months to come. So let’s check out my Reading List for April 2016!
SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in All Day Soiree
Now out of all four of the SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palettes that I own, this one was the one I was most worried about. Don’t get me wrong; the SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in All Day Soiree ($14.99 USD) is stunning, but the colours in it are so very light that I had horrible, horrible visions of my face with much too light makeup on it. Seriously, what I was picturing is enough to give your nightmares. But I was ‘in for a penny and in for a pound’ and bought it despite my initial reservations. This week I finally sat down and tested it out, and I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – Pearl
Now I love me a good highlighter. This is not news, to anyone at all, who either reads this blog or knows me in real life. If it was acceptable to go around covered in highlighters or glitter from head to toe, I would probably do that. Huge on my list of highlighter loves are those found in the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed range. I’ve previously told you about me love for both the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop and Blushed Copper, both of which were limited edition. Well in my quest to collect and review them all, I am bringing you the newest addition tot he BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed line, in the shade Pearl.
Sleek MakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette – See You At Midnight
So last week I introduced you to one of Sleek MakeUP’s Eye & Cheek Palettes. While the one I showed you before was a great everyday palette, the one I have for you today is a little more of a special occasion palette. Don’t get me wrong, it can still be used everyday, if that’s your thing, but for me, I break this bad boy out when I’ve got some serious dressing up to do. Lets take a look at Sleek MakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in See You At Midnight (
