MUA "Undress Me Too" Eye Palette Review!

So today  I've decided to go all beauty on you, bet you weren't expecting that! Because I was in a beauty post mood and Miyyi is a VERY diverse topic blog, I thought that a lovely review of the MUA eye shadow palette "Undress Me Too" would be a great idea. Just to put it out there I am by no means at all ever a make-up expert, ever. But no matter! We will plod on anyway with the knowledge that this is not a professional review. Ok, glad we got that cleared up, off we go!:)

I cannot actually believe how cheap MUA palettes are. I picked this "Undress Me Too" one up from SuperDrug at £3.99 after looking online at th MUA website and the same palette being out of stock:( But no matter, I went through the checkout and it was mine:)

I think the packaging is very sleek and looks simple yet sophisticated. I do think the packaging reflects the price but it was always going to, it doesn't look like a stupidly expensive palette, but I like that! It's the right size for your handbag and shows you all the colours at a glance,  which lots of eye-shadow palettes do not. I can imagine the packaging getting a bit eye-shadow dusty but so far so good, I like the design a lot! It even comes with a little foam dabber brushy thing which I use for doing the inner highlight:p

 The eyeshadows are really easy to blend and generally stay on for quite a while, even without a primer.This is great if you're going out for a few hours as you don't have to bring the palette with you:)

Some of the colours are more pigmented from others. The shimmery ones are all incredibly pigmented but some of the matte colours, for instance "Lavish", are not so and can look a bit chalky at times. I still love wearing them though, especially when doing a smoky eye, "Corrupt" works perfectly! I think the colours are very Autumnal and I can tell I'm going to be wearing them a lot this season:)

So there you have it, a beauty review, exciting times! Let me know what you thought in the comments below aswell as telling me your experiences with the MUA palette and how you like to wear your eyeshadow:)

Cheerio! Milly x

When my Cat Fell Out of My Bedroom Window

Today I thought I'd share with you a true story about my cat Tinka falling out of my second story bedroom window. So off we go!

Tinka as a kitten:*
Let us start with some background information about Tinka: She is a semi feral rescue cat who is now 4 years old and VERY naughty. She is vicious hunter that all the neighbourhood cats are scared of and she loves a good cuddle with her wonderful owner Milly;)

Tinka went through a stage of loving to balance on the outside part of the windowsill, this was only on the first floor windows so no worries there.

Being a daredevilish cat, Tinka decided to try this trick on the outside of my bedroom window, 2 stories up... This is a good point to note that Tinka was also a very clumsy cat, not a good combination.

My mum was downstairs on the computer doing some work in the room which is directly underneath my bedroom with a window facing in the same direction. All of a sudden she sees this flash looking unusually a cat shaped and then an almighty thud. Outside she went to find a Tinka shaking herself off and looking a bit dazed. "Oh dear" she thought (obviously). My mum watched her for a while to make sure the poor cat wasn't injured and then off Tinka skipped to go and chase some butterflies.

The next day, Tinka got stung by a bee in the paw (I said she was clumsy). This resulted in a trip to the vets in which Tinka was treated for her pawly paw (see what I did there?) and then diagnosed with mild concussion. "Oh dear" we thought (obviously).

This whole disaster story has taught us all that if your cat or any other animal for that matter falls out of a second story window, whip them to the vets to double check they're ok;)

Hope you all enjoyed that little tale!:)

I mustn't leave our other cats out so here's some cute pictures of them...

Here is Blackie, my mum's cat who's 16 now:O Old photo alert!
This adorable photo of my sister's cat Lola when she was a kitten:*
And finally Tinka and Lola together, aww!

So there you go! Such fun;)
Do any of you guys have cats? Any funny or cute stories you can tell me in the comments, I'd love to hear them! If no cats then have you got any other pets?

Cheerio! Milly x
