Travel Diaries: Amsterdam

Hi friends! Today’s post, FINALLY, is my last installment of our trip to Europe – this one is all about our 3-day stay in Amsterdam. This post is way overdue, but I wanted to get it up before the new year – just in the nick of time, literally.

Review: ColourPop Going Coconuts Eyeshadow Palette

ColourPop’s constant releases are news to absolutely no one. They have released an entire rainbow of 9-pan palettes this year, none of which I have been interested since I knew I would never use them. However, the second they announced the release of the Going Coconuts collection, I knew I “needed” it. Yes, it’s just another boring neutral palette, but in a lot of ways, it makes more sense for me to buy a neutral palette than an “interesting” palette, because I go for neutrals 98% of the time. It seems that the majority of neutral palettes in the last few years have been very warm-toned and red-based, so the Going Coconuts palette is a nice change.
