♡ Life Update: Uni // New Hair // Moving to London ♡

So, i've been a super bad blogger lately, but I've had exams and coursework and all that boring stuff that has to take priority in life (boo!) but i'm back and I thought what better way to get the ball rolling than to share some exciting things that have been happening so far in 2014!

Firstly, if you follow me on any other form of social media, you may know I went through a bit of a hair change! Although I LOVE being blonde, I wanted to try something a little different for the new year! So i'm now...ginger? Well, not entirely, I'm not exactly sure what colour my hair is! Sort of browny, coppery, gingery, blondy, ombre-y? It took a bit of getting used to at first, but I think i'm finally starting to like it! I think it looks a lot softer and a lot more natural.

Now that i'm in 3rd year of university, everything is 1456277894327651237 times harder than it was when I was a baby first year!! This semester has turned out to be the most challenging so far and has caused many tears, breakdowns and the weekly "that's it! i'm dropping out!" tantrums! However, all of the hard work and slaving away in the library has paid off as last week I got some pretty exciting news...

It is a requirement as part of my course (BA HONS Fashion Management) that all students undertake a placement in 3rd year. We have a placement officer within the uni that helps us contact companies and try to arrange placements/internships. However, being the strong, independent woman that I am, I decided to go it alone and try to organise my own placement with the company I currently work for. And lo and behold, I did it! I've managed to bag myself an internship in the PR department at Kurt Geiger's Head Office down in London! IN LONDON!! So at the end of this month, i'll be packing up my life and moving down to the capital for a total of 10 weeks! I am so over the moon and so thankful to KG for this opportunity! I am honestly still in shock and so overwhelmed at the fact I am making my dreams come true (yuck that was so cheesy but it had to be said!) So yeah, thats the goss! I will be updating my blog regularly and perhaps even trying my hand at some vlogging while down having lots of adventures in LDN!! 

But for now...I'm off to eat some soup and watch One Direction's movie because I have the worst cold on the face of the planet and my nose is so red I genuinely could be Rudolph!!




I've always been a huge fan of Urban Decay. In fact, I'm almost 100% sure that the first eyeshadow palette I ever owned was their Deluxe Eyeshadow Box! 

Since I am a huge lover of nude and neutral toned eyeshadows, I feel like the Naked palettes were created especially for me! All 3 palettes are excellently pieced together, with the shades that complement each other carefully arranged side by side, which makes life so much easier for the girls that maybe aren't as sure as to which colours to wear together!

Naked 3 is all about the rose gold tones. The palette is a mix of matte, frost and shimmer shades, starting with a gorgeous creamy pink colour ("strange") all the way to the deepest shade in the palette: a black shadow with iridescent red shimmers ("blackheart"). These colours are formulated to suit any skin tone and as they are all still very neutral, they will go with any eye colour.

These shadows are SO PIGMENTED! It's CRAZY!! The swatches above are literally the result of two swipes from my finger! The colours are so easily blendable too, they glide on to the eyelid like silk!  I am so so impressed and I think this may actually be my favourite Naked Palette yet!

As you can see from the pictures above, for todays look, since I had work, I opted to go super natural - keeping it purely matte shades on my eyes. However, you could easily create a full on "i'm going out and want to look shit hot" look from this nifty little palette! I used "Strange" on my lid and brow bone, "Limit" as my transition shade and "Nooner" on my crease. Very subtle but still gives my eyes that extra special something!

I'm not sure what else to say about Naked 3. It's definitely a 10/10 in my opinion and my new go-to palette! I cannot wait to start experimenting with different colour combinations - and i'll be sure to post up pictures of my favourite looks I create.

Has anyone else bought Naked 3 yet? What are your thoughts?
