Howdy Cosmetic Cravers…
It’s a soggy, grey morning here in the emerald isle… thank heavens for kettles, over-sized cardigans and slipper socks eh gals? However I’m keeping hopeful that spring wont be too long in catching up with us so I can finally ditch the winter woolies & merge myself into something a little more brighter to the eyeballs… Ooooh talking of which, a maaaahosive thank you to all who checked out yesterdays’ post Ted Baker: Brilliance of Beauty Box Set. Honestly ladies I literally can’t even begin to describe how gorgeous this collection of cosmetics is, so do keep your eyes peeled for any future box launches as they’re most definitely worth the treat for sure ❤
