Hi babes! What's good? Life over here has become infinitely cuter after adding a kitten to our family. The other three cats are still getting used to the little intruder, but it's mostly just some social awkwardness rather than agression so I'm cautiously optimistic. We're truly a catloving family, and we used to have four cats for years until our first cat died of FIV two years ago. He was only about 9 years old so it came as quite a shock, and it took us a while to get over the loss and have the mental and emotional space for another kitten. But here we are and things are going great! I'm currently typing this with many interruptions because little Croky insists on taking a walk on my laptop keyboard every 20 seconds.

About the outfit: I love these types of romantic, retro inspired polkadot dresses, and I love how the white fabric makes me look more tan than I am. The silver loafers help too, of course! I wear these skinny cat eye sunglasses all the time but you'll just have to live with it because they make me very happy. It's not often you come across sunglass options that make a style statement while still being very lightweight.

Cheers!

Beauty: Urban Decay Backtalk palette review

Beauty: Urban Decay Backtalk palette review

It's been a while since I've gotten around to a beauty review, but this particular palette got me so excited I put together a full blogpost within six hours after receiving the delivery. I'm talking about the new Urban Decay Backtalk palette!

I have three My Lips But Better type lip products I keep going back to: Kat Von D Double Dare, l'Oréal Color Riche Érotique, and Urban Decay Backtalk. All three have a slightly different undertone. Double Dare is a mid-tone muted coral, Érotique is a slightly lighter peachy nude, and Backtalk is mauve: cooler than the other two, but still has a warm tinge. Backtalk is incredibly flattering on my complexion and really gives you that luscious pink lips look, the classy kind of pink. I love it so much I have it both in regular matte lipstick and in liquid form - and no press samples. 

Not surprisingly, Backtalk has become a top-selling UD lipstick, so much so that it has inspired the launch of a new face and eye palette! And the product is a beauty, striking that balance between cool and warm, pink and neutral. Let's take a closer look.
