Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette

Well hi there!

Some of you may or may not remember me or my old (now defunct) blog 'If the shoe fits'.
I haven't blogged for what feels like ages now and lately I've come to realize how much I miss blogging.  I don't really have an excuse as to why I stopped blogging but I do know that I adored my previous blog. It was such a great little place for sharing pretty things and best of all I met the most beautiful and kind people. So that brings me here, for round 2 of blogging!

As my first 'official' beauty post I thought I'd share one of my favourite pretties of the moment- 
The Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette.

I first saw this palette a few months ago whilst shopping at David Jones or Myer in Melbourne.
It was so perfectly pretty and it was love at first sight.

However saying that I didn't actually buy it because A). I had to ask myself do I really truly need another eyeshadow palette? The answer was no, probably not.
And B). I'd already spent like $400 on 3 Longchamp bags. Yes 3- talk about over kill!
I actually have a really unhealthy obsession with Longchamp bags. I one day made some kind of crazy resolution that I would own a Longchamp Pliage bag in every single colour by 2015. What the!?
And to think I wasn't even drunk- maybe just on a shopping/Longchamp high.Who knows what I was thinking... (But that is a whooole other post I am sure!)
So to finish the story yes I left the palette there on the shelf. But I had major shoppers regret when I got home, so I jumped online and grabbed it there. Gotta love online shopping!
This palette is perfectly pretty. It is soft, feminine and gorgeously girly- plus it is Smashbox, a brand I can't get enough of lately.

My favourite eyeshadows are marked with a heart <3
So there you have it! My first post on my new blog.
Hopefully you have enjoyed reading as much as I did writing :)


  1. Glad your back blogging again!

    I really wanted to like this palette, it's so pretty - but it wasn't for me so I returned it.

    Would love to see how you use it though! Maybe I'll have to re-purchase haha!
