We got a kitten! I wasn’t going to write about her but it occurred to me that the internet is made of cats so I might as well throw my hat into the ring. Her name is Cleopatra, Cleo for short, she’s a cross between an Egyptian Mau and a Bengal. We named her after the last active pharaoh of ancient Egypt partly because of her heritage and because of the markings around her eyes which make her look like she’s rocking statement eyeliner. Since we got her I feel the urge to match my makeup to hers and I’ve been painting my eyes with a feline flick. I thought that black was the only option when it came to eyeliner, however I’ve recently discovered Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock’n’Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown which is a softer, more flattering hue.
Cleo is a gorgeous, affection kitten and I’m sure she’ll find her way onto this blog from time to time. I’ll do my best not to populate my instagram feed with endless pictures of her pretty little face, but it’s hard to resist capturing the moment when she snuggles up to me and purrs like a lawnmower.
