Hello everyone! I hope you're all doing well. This post is going to be full of swatches, as well as a lovely tribute by Leah Ann from CbL to a very good friend of hers. This spring collection is dedicated to that friend, her name is Helen. And at the end of these swatches you will be able to read this touching tribute to her...

And now these words from Leah Ann to her friend Helen.

There are times in life that we find a person who inspires us.  Even though I have never met Helen as she lives an ocean away, she is my hero.  I always thought life was just a means to an end and that life was a painful journey with rich rewards at the end.  I was wrong.  Helen has shown me that I need to treasure each and every moment here on earth and to live as if tomorrow will never come.  Helen finds joy in the smallest moments and even in adversity.  She is and has been battling an illness with grace, dignity and a zest for life I have not seen before.  She reminds me that there are challenges in life that show us what is really important and how to meet those challenges head on and never give up.  My outlook on life has changed dramatically just from knowing this wonderful lady who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  Thank God for you Helen, it is an honor to be called your friend.  This collection was inspired by your spirit, your heart and your wonderful soul.

All of my swatches are 2 coats of color and top coat. All of them have lovely formulas. My favorite being Pretty In Pink, always a sucker for holo with pops of holo glitter. This collection gave me all of the feels, because I share many wonderful friendships with friends I've never met in person. 
If you would like any of these they will be available for pre-order on April 1st from 12pm-8pm on Llarowe.com 
A portion of the proceeds from this collection are being donated to Helen's charity:  https://www.willowfoundation.org.uk/donate 
Be sure to follow CbL on social media for future updates and swatches! 

Thanks for hanging out with me today, until next time! 
Xo, Lo
