Recipe: Brownie Cupcakes With Cookie Dough Frosting

I am not a food blogger by any means in fact I'm a beauty blogger 98% of the time and rarely dabble with fashion posts but I really want to do a post about this recipe. I got this recipe from Cooking Classy (click here for the original) and I made it for my sister's 19th birthday. They were pretty delicious so I thought I would share the recipe and show you my rendition! (above) I would absolutely make these cupcakes again, but beware, if you don't have a super sweet tooth these will not be for you.

Review: theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

I feel like everyone has already written/spoken about this highlighter in previous months but as per usual, I'm late on the bandwagon. I first heard about this through Chelsea (obviously from Chelsea Wears... what other Chelsea is there?) a while back and I've slowly heard pretty much everyone on the beauty blogosphere talking about this. Some think it's too much, others are obsessed. I am obsessed. I'm not into a 'subtle highlight' or a 'natural glow' - I want disco ball cheekbones. And I am so sorry if that is totally tacky and Kardashian of me, but it is totally true. I love a bit of shimmer on my face and I like it to be of a champagne/golden hue, which is why this is the only highlighter I have eyes for at the moment. (Like, what even IS MAC Soft & Gentle, you know?).

Obsessed With # 3 - ELF Candid Coral Blush

EESH, I don't have my camera at the moment so iPhone photos will have to do! I got this blush quite a while ago now and I love it. I don't usually buy much from ELF but I would have paid NARS prices for this blush it is so nice...

                 Say adios to the old blog design (below) because it's gone! I'm not really an html or design whiz so I asked the lovely Abby from Baggle - Web and Design to redesign my blog for me and I really like it! I love the little raspberries above my blog title, even though I don't like raspberries one bit I think it looks kind of pretty and relevant. I love how the new design looks!

Recent Purchases # 7

Some of these buys are actually not that new at all but I just haven't spoken about them. I have kind of been neglecting my 'Recent Purchases' posts because I've being trying to finish products rather than buy new ones but with all the finishing products, I have needed to stock up on a few 'essentials' (who am I kidding?). I also have been gifted a couple of these products by friends/family so I haven't bought most of this with my own money per say. I just thought I would give them all a mention because I haven't posted in a little while! My room here in Paris is pretty dark so the pictures aren't the best but bear with me until I get a better camera sometime...
