An American Treasure: Sequoia National Park (I)

"Reach for the Sky" “Reach for the Sky”

This past weekend, we celebrated Independence Day by taking our daughter to Sequoia National Park (and a portion of Kings Canyon National Park.) We spent a few days exploring this amazingly beautiful national treasure. The parks are humongous, so we really only scratched the surface in terms of exploration. But…we will certainly be back soon to continue exploring (it’s only 3 hours from where we live.)

The best part of the trip? Well…it was the fact that I had the opportunity to spend quality time with my family.

Please enjoy the photos, and some of my fun little facts that I learned while visiting the park. 🙂

P.S. More photos and facts later this week.  Thanks for being a part of my blog!

Dupe? W7 In the Buff Eyeshadow Palette Review + Swatches

Online Beauty Finds

W7 in the buff eyeshadow palette

W7 in the buff eyeshadow palette

Hi everyone!

I have seen this palette as a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, and when I saw this on eBay for only $8.99, I had to try it out! The links are below as always.

W7 in the buff eyeshadow palette

These shadows are very pigmented and smooth; there is two matte shades (buff & chocolate) which are a bit powdery. They last all day on the eyes; I noticed little fading after 8+ hours. They have a bit of a fall out while applying but that can be fixed by either placing a tissue under the eyes or doing the eyes before the face makeup. They apply beautifully and not patchy at all, even the matte shades are very blend-able.

The colors are beautiful, the first shade (buff) does not show up in pictures because it is very close to my skin color; just a bit more yellow. The first two…

Crazy for coral

Face Camera Action

Recently I have found an amazing website called Sabo Skirt which is based in Australia and all of their clothes are gorgeous, also the fact they are based in Australia is even better for me because I live in England so it means no one else will have the same!


My favourite colour is coral so coming across this little diamond was great. It’s a great fit and a lovely colour and so flattering!

I feel this play suit goes so well for the evening and the day time dressed up or down. I recently wore it out on for the evening and I dressed it up with some nude wedges and a nude clutch bag.

I think this would look great as well in the day time with some tanned sandles and bag as well.
