I love color, and hardly have anything black in my wardrobe. So when I finally did splurge on a black evening dress for a special night out, it definitely couldn’t be one that was all-out black and boring.

I found this beauty on the shelves of Debenhams just a week or so before Christmas. It comes under the Miss Selfridge label, and what attracted me to it was the colorful floral embroidery right on the front.

I am heading off on a summer holiday, and one of my pet peeves has been trying to squeeze in all my essentials into the constricted luggage allowance. This time round, I am carrying 9 eye-shadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer and 2 lip and cheek stains in my hand-bag. Quite a stash you say? Well here’s news for you, this entire list of goodies is stocked in The Balm Voyage Vol. II palette, and its actually as slim and compact as my passport!
