BEAUTY: Urban decay: Alice in wonderland shadow pallet

This is one of the most beautiful pallets I have ever had the pleasure of holding and trying (even if it was for a short while). This pallet is truly stunning and iconic. 


This is inspired by the latest Disney film Alice through the looking glass which is out to watch. 


The pallet is home to 20 enchanting and captivating colours and shades all with noteworthy pigment. 
Even the lightest of colours is highly pigmented you will hardly need any for a show stopping look. 


A friend with a make up addiction allowed me the pleasure of admiring her new pallet to which left me whole heartily wanting it myself. 


It retails at £43 and can be brought online and the reviews on the urban decay website speak for themselves. 



I invite you to fall in love with 20 colours and fall down the rabbit hole with me. 

Special thanks to Chelsea for allowing me to swoon and photograph her new little dream pallet and I hope she has lots of fun experimenting with some amazing colour coordinations. 

If you have it I would love links to looks created and your thoughts on it. If not is it something you would love to own? 

Love Aimee

LIFESTYLE: bullying & specsavers spectacle wearer of the year withkidscape

Bullying happens all over the world to anyone at any age. I honestly thought that when I hit 30 and went back to learning thought that the bullying days were well and truly behind me. Boy was I wrong! 
When your at school I can forgive the girls who made my life at high school complete hell because they didn't know any better they were kids and naive but adults who bully well that's a different story. They know what they are doing and they know the hurt and distress it can cause. 

I was bullied at school because I had braces, wore glasses and lost my dad and brother within 18 months of each other in year 9 & 10. High school was survivable because I had a small handful of friends who stood by me and I'm very lucky to still have them in my life. 

I have worked alongside specsavers on a number of occasions and when they have me information that Kimberly wyatt was bullied as a teenager it really hit home, it happens to anyone and more people than you realise.  She is a wonderful person I have had the pleasure and honour to meet. 

She works alongside specsavers and they do a competition every year called spectacle wearer of the year it's about being proud to wear your glasses and express your style.  For each entry made £1 will be donated to the Kidscape. 
The money raised will help to support them in providing training, support and advice for children, parents, schools and those who may be affected by cases of bullying and abuse in the UK.

To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world, glasses wearers can enter the competition online at www.specsavers.co.uk/loveglassescomp.

This is a great way to be as amazing as I know all my readers are, I'm 32 and after two years of being bullied as an adult by an adult twice my age, I realise it's not because Iv done something. It's because they are clearly missing something and bullying, being cruel and hurtful is the only way they can express and cry for help because they are deeply hurt and disturbed. 

Love to all my readers 💕💕💕
