'Blood on Snow' by Jo Nesbo - An Audio-book review

I've never reviewed an audio-book, before, but have just begun listening to audio-books, from time to time, as a way in which to indulge in my favourite past-time whilst still being able to do something else. Most of the time when I'm reading I can't do anything else (yes, health fun) but sometimes I want to still be able to do a bit of colouring, or a few minutes of crochet whilst still being able to delve in to another world; which is the biggest joy that I get from books. 
As such, the offer of a copy of Jo Nesbo's 'Blood on Snow' in audio-book format was an intriguing one, and I said yes without hesitation. It's taken me a little while to be able to get the chance to listen to it; it's a bit of a silly one but if I am listening to an audio-book I don't want to have nothing to do with my hands, so if I'm feeling too bad to colour, or crochet, then I want to be reading an Actual book, so I needed to wait for a time when I wanted to relax with a book but my hands were happy enough to do some colouring.

Makeup Revolution New Release - The 'Affirmation' 32 shade Eye shadow palette

It's Makeup Revolution time! I'd say, easily, Makeup Revolution post is always a highlight for me, I love to find out what's inside and when there's something stunning it just puts a smile on my face (hint, this one is stunning). 
Today the 'Affirmation' palette, which is the newest of the 32 shade Ultra Eyeshadow palettes, popped through the letter box. When I saw swatches of this, yesterday, I hoped I'd be lucky enough to get this one so I was very, very pleased when a palette shaped package arrived!

Eye of Horus - Goddess Eyeliner pencil in 'Bronze Amulet' - Thoughts and swatches

Eye of Horus is a brand who appeared on my radar last year as an Australian brand who was branching out and coming to the UK - I was incredibly lucky to be able to trial their Goddess Mascara which proved to be the perfect thing to keep my lashes lovely, and completely waterproof, for my wedding day. As such I'm thrilled to be able to share one of their Goddess Pencils with you, in the shade 'Bronze Amulet'.

The Air Motion Pro hairbrush - Our review

This post isn't My review, alone, today because it's for a product that I've been using with Ethan. When we were offered an Air Motion Pro hairbrush to trial I instantly cut, in my head, to the images of Ethan shrieking every time I put a brush through those curly, messy locks of his - Instantly I said Yes Please!

Birchbox UK Unboxing - May 2015

You may've noticed that I haven't posted as many unboxings, recently. Firstly I've cut down on what I've been getting, quite considerably, and secondly the boxes I Have been getting haven't filled me with the desire to write about them, until the May Birchbox arrived! This has been a really redeeming box, for me, so I'm really pleased as I was feeling rather disenchanted. 
If this box re-lights the spark for you, too, and you decide to subscribe then don't forget to use my referral link and we'll both get £5 worth of points to spend in the Birchbox shop: https://www.birchbox.co.uk/invite/m6bv3
