Blogmas 2018: Day 1!

The Blogmas Day 1 header image. It shows the title in a box in the centre with a photo of white branches decorated with fairy lights behindI can’t believe it’s already December! We’ve started our advent calendars, the first lot of decorations have been put up and it’s finally feeling properly Christmassy even if the weather isn’t. This yea I’m going to do the daily advent calendar opening like I have the past few years but I’ve also found a list of 25 questions that I’m going to answer each day. It’s from Pinterest so I can’t save the picture and the site keeps saying it doesn’t exist but it’s from and apparently from 2012 so it’s not new, I’ll have to make a new graphic to show the questions and add it in here some time.

Anyway, the advent calendars I’ll be posting about are the Holland and Barrett 25 Days of Cleaner Beauty and the Harry Potter Funko Pop one.

Review: Sleek i-Divine Calm Before the Storm Palette


Another review on a palette, and another Sleek one, this time the Calm Before the Storm i-Divine palette.

Having said recently that I was sorting through and decluttering my palettes I went and bought another one. I do love the colours in this one but I will admit it was probably a bit of an impulse buy as I was getting other things from Boots and I saw it and the colours were so pretty.

This is, like all i-Divine palettes, an eyeshadow palette with twelve colours. As these are in the Nautical Collection they’re sea themed and a lot of them are blue and greeny blues as you’d expect with that name. There are five shimmers, three with matte bases and glitter particles and four plain mattes. It costs £7.99 in Boots and on their own site and as it’s Limited Edition I’m not sure how long it’ll be around for. I haven’t actually seen this palette in stores but it’ll stand out with the packaging if it is.
