Ad - I received a complimentary ticket to this show.
When I was growing up we used to go to the panto as a family every single year. I honestly can't remember the last time I went to a panto over Christmas though and I'm not sure why I stopped going. Maybe it felt like something that should be done with children or as a big family. I don't really know.
Last Friday I attended the press night for Aladdin at @norwichtheatreroyal
and I had the best time!
The full review is up on the blog today (link in bio) so be sure to head over for a read. If you're local to Norwich and haven't got tickets yet, you've got loads of time as it's running right up until Sunday 13th January!
Honest Monday’s 🤷🏼♀️ After feeling pretty down & un-inspired yesterday, nearly giving up with social media totally and not really wanting to look at my blog, I couldn’t be more grateful for those around me that keep pushing me✨ I’ve woken up today feeling a bit better, but definitely more determined - and I’ve realised it’s okay to feel like that for a day or so, as long as you pick yourself up and turn it into something productive✨

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I've been loving the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in 'Alkaline' (around R230) for the past few weeks. The shade is a berry-burgundy and, surprisingly, this shade suits most eye looks. Seriously, it's such an adaptable shade because it pairs well with neutral and bolder looks.
In terms of formula, this product is smooth, creamy, and pigmented. However, I do find that the product tends to transfer when used on the waterline (so I have to make sure to add around 2 layers). Personally, I find that the colourful (or non-neutral) 24/7 Glide On pencils don't really last on the waterline. Despite this, I still love this eyeliner - it works well as an eyeshadow base and it's easy to smudge out for a grunge-y look. These UD eyeliners are quite pricey but the shade range is pretty extensive - and difficult to dupe. However, Essence has recently released more shades of their retractable eyeliners and I think they're a good option if you're on a budget.

Makeup Review: Ofra Highlighter in 'Rodeo Drive'.
The Ofra highlighters have been hyped up in the beauty community so, when they had a 40% off sale a few months ago, I picked up the shade Rodeo Drive. It's a pretty universal shade - it works on my medium skin tone and I've tested it out on lighter skin tones. On my skin, it translates to a yellow champagne shade.
In terms of pigmentation, this highlighter is blinding and the formula is smooth and creamy. It applies well (evenly with no chunky glitter) and blends easily. However, I suggest adding a very light layer and building up the highlight. Also, this highlighter lasts long on the cheeks and looks better as it wears on. The only con is that it does emphasize texture (like most highlighters). The price is more on the higher end side but Ofra SA tends to have a lot of 40% off sales and a couple of bloggers have 20% off discount codes.
