I KNOW, I don’t need any more liquid lipsticks or eye-shadows, or any make up for that matter, but I really wanted to try out Colour Pop since I have heard so many good things about them. The only thing that put me off was the shipping from the USA over to the UK and those dreaded custom fees! So when I saw Colour Pop was doing free delivery to the UK, I jumped at the chance!

My Perfect Everyday Eyeshadow Quad

I love my eyeshadow palettes, and I have way more than I care to admit. But there is something about a palette with loads of shadows in which is too much for when I am in a massive rush (most mornings). And lets be honest, you never really like or use every shade.

I recently found a recipe for this chocolate cake from Madeline Shaw’s ‘Get The Glow’ book and I thought I would recreate it. It is flour and gluten free, but you can’t tell – It is gooey and rich and tastes just like brownies! It turned out so well I thought I would share it with you all.
