Barbados National Flag inspiration using MAC Hug Me

I was super excited since I was going to my long awaited vacation to Barbados. The national flag is mainly blue and yellow colours so while going through my closet I was reminded of a sleeveless dress I bought a long time ago that was mustard with a blue-ish appliqué to the front. In my eagerness to start using my recently purchased MAC , this is the look I came up with.

Since the dress is already so bright I just kept the face neutral. There is a hint of gold eyeshadow on the lids but the star of the face is the nude MAC Hug Me lipstick.


MAC Hug Me Lipstick

Besides being a gorgeous colour on its own, the texture of the lipstick is smooth and the shine is already there so no need to add a lipgloss on top of it, unless you want too. The only downside to this lippie is that you have to swipe a few times to get that colour but it does makes my lips feel like they are being pampered. I am really loving Hug Me!
So would you wear these colours together?

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
