The mini blog series

So the topic for this mini blog post is the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette.

First of all let’s talk about  the packaging 😍😍😍😍😍.  Seriously stunning!


This palette is perfect for every one it’s has a lovely mix of shimmery and matte shadows and a nice colour range.



My favourite colours are Punk – a deep reddish purple and Pop – a shimmery sparkly goldy pinky nude……ya know what I mean lol.

I’ve had this palette since Christmas now and I can honestly say its my most reached for palette since then. I even took it on holiday with me and created lots of different looks using just this   from casual day time looks  to smoky night time looks.

The pigmentation is unreal in all the shadows but there can be some fall out with the more glittery shadows so maybe do your eyes before your skin if your gonna use these.

So that’s my little post hope you enjoyed I know every blogger in the world has already written a post on this already but I don’t like to rave about something until I use it for a while and get a good feel for it.

Check out my instagram for a few looks I’ve done using this my user name is @kemples.

Quarter life crisis………is that even a thing???

So the strangest thing has been happening lately, I’m finding myself falling back in love with everything from my late teens/early 20s. And I mean everything tv, movies, clothes(thank god fashion is having a flash back, yay clunky boots and band t-shirts!) and the most prominent thing is music.

I don’t know how it started one day I just noticed that everything I wasn’t skipping on my ipod was from about that time. System of a Down, Offspring, Linkin Park, QOTSA and even Metallica(was never that pushed on them back in the day but now I can’t get enough of them). It seems the rock chick inside me has decided she wants to make a come back and I’ve decided to let her…eeeek this could all go horribly wrong.


So yeah all the black clothes are back, I’ve no desire to wear pretty dresses and I’m getting very into dark grungy make up. Thankfully a huge difference between then and  now is  I can actually put make-up on in some kind of artistic way. Back then my make up application consisted of a cheap foundation slapped on with my hands that did nothing to cover/enhance my skin and some black liquid liner that looked like I’d put it on with my feet(that was after the cotton-bud clean up :-0 ).

I mentioned this to a friend of mine and he described it as a “quarter life crisis”. He had read something about it recently and it was apparently becoming very common. Maybe its the fact that 30 is fast approaching(I’m 27 & a half) I’m trying to cling on to my youth because in my head 30 is like sooooooooooooooooo grown up and obviously the fact I’ve just described myself as 27 and a half is testament to the fact I do not consider myself a “grown-up”.  Our parents generation were all settled by this age, my mother had 2 kids and a house by my age. Now as nice as my own house would be I’ll pass on the kiddies for now.

Then I was thinking the last time I was single for anything close to this long(My 5yr+ relationship ended about a year ago now and right before that was a 2yr relationship) was when I was that age, so maybe I’m like picking up where I left off :-/ Who knows?

So my questions to you if you’re reading this are:

Has this ever happened to you?

Is it happening to you at the mo?

Isn’t is gas craic?

I’m enjoying it at the moment so I’ll see where it takes me.
