Collective Haul

Not even going to sugar coat it this time - yes, I am well aware I have been an awful blogger and have let yet another month slip away without a proper blog post. It seems the end of the year rush has arrived early for me this year, and thus making it almost impossible to juggle work, social and blogging life. I would say I need a holiday but I actually have just returned from a little getaway, so I pretty much have run out of excuses.

So, without further adieu let's just get onto this haul. I've picked up quite a few things over the last couple of months, some are new releases others are just things I've wanted for yonks but never really got around to purchasing...until now. I also thought I would include some PR products I've received, as it's always interesting to see some new releases now and again.

November Wishlist 2014 (Holiday/Limited Edition)

With Christmas literally around the corner (it's November already? Where did the first 10 months of the year disappear to?!) I thought I would compile a holiday and/or limited edition products wishlist. I know all beauty lovers out there will be lusting over all these goodies, so let's all appreciate them together!

BRAND OVERVIEW: Gorgeous Cosmetics

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Dawn! Yes, I do believe I'm back and fingers crossed it will stick this time.
I’m excited to share with you today a review/overview about a brand that I’ve been eyeing for quite some time now. I literally squealed with excited when I received an email asking to collaborate with this brand, and of course there was absolutely no hesitation from my part. As you can already see from the title that the brand is Gorgeous Cosmetics – now if you haven’t heard of them before let me give you a little insight. Gorgeous Cosmetics was founded in Melbourne, Australia, by makeup artist David McConnell. The brand focuses on providing luxurious cosmetics to emphasise natural beauty and create simple yet glamorous looks. Since its release the brand has expanded worldwide and is available in boutiques and even on site like Nordstrom. 

This post will showcase a few goodies from the brand and a quick summary of my genuine thoughts and impressions. Without further adieu let's jump in!

NOTD: ORLY Brush It On

Spring has finally sprung and I'm absolutely over the moon. I don't know what it is about warm weather but it seems it can always brighten up a bad situation. On another note I had the fabulous opportunity to test a few polishes from ORLY's Smokey Collection and thought I would share one of them with you as I think it would be a great polish to get into the beautiful Spring weather.

Let me introduce you guys to the amazing shade of Brush It On.
