I have actually been very busy (work wise) as I decided that I needed to 'tweak' a few things on my website, so have been taking some new photos, updating information, organising a new photo shoot.....which will be featuring the lovely La Dama (which I am very excited about)....more info on that coming up soon.....and also I changed my domain name from the Moonfruit address I have been using for the last 2.5 yrs, to www.dollycool.co.uk, which is more professional - even if it means I now have to change ALL my branding and promo material (and there is a LOT of it!!)..... I know it will be worth it though and I feel much happier with the .co.uk taking things forward.
I've also in the past few weeks become an avid tweeter! Something I dismissed for quite a while, as I didn't really "get" it - but now I do! I think its great to interact with other like-minded people on there - there are a lot of inspirational creative people with great business advise, independent brands, designers and crafters, and people into vintage, so for me its been a really positive thing to do. I'm @dollycool if anyone wants to follow me :)
So, enough waffle and onto the lovely new Make-Up that I treated myself too last week. I had a coupon code (of course!) for Beauty Bay, and I wanted some new eyeshadows - so I bought this fab palette by Urban Decay;
The Vegan Palette. Completely cruelty and animal product free. I'm not vegan, but am very against animal testing, so anything like this gets the thumbs up from me! You get 6 very highly pigmented eyeshadows, an eye primer and an eyeliner. The set retails for £23.50, but I got it for £18 with the coupon.
This was quite a splurge for a bargain hunter like me, but I don't buy very much make-up, but what I do get has to be good quality. I especially hate cheap, nasty eyeshadows!
And just look at the pretty box!
And a close up of the shadows. They are all a pearl/frost finish which I love (I don't really like Matt finishes). The gold and bronze colours are my fave. The bright turquoise is for brave days!
I am actually doing something interesting later on this week, so promise more interesting posts coming at the weekend :))
