Natasha Denona Metropolis Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Metropolis Natasha Denona Metropolis Mini Eyeshadow PaletteNatasha Denona Metropolis Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, limited edition mini palette that expands on the Metropolis 28-pan palette; it includes three shades from the larger palette, plus two new shades (the last two).

Maple Bourbon Banana Nut Loaf

Whenever we have leftover bananas that are too ripe, I’ll make a banana nut loaf. This time around, I went a step further and made this Fall Maple Bourbon Banana Nut Loaf. Mixing a Banana bread recipe with nuts is common, as is adding other fruits or chocolates. Today I’m sticking with a moist banana loaf with added walnuts inside and on top. The banana nut loaf will be flavoured with Bourbon vanilla, vanilla and maple extract. For those of you who aren’t keen on using maple or vanilla bourbon.
