E.L.F. Takeovers Trinidad

Those sneaky little elves with their huge array of cosmetics! They just slowly infiltrated our lives here in the sunny islands of the Caribbean.
So while I had to purchase my items online a few months ago now I see them here with their welcomed takeover of our island. One by one they keep popping up, making beauty items more affordable for the beauty addicts like me.
So on my stroll through Excellent Stores in Trincity Mall; there they were sitting all pretty and staring at me. No they were calling out my name.
So far most of the ELF items available locally are from their US $1 line so that conversion would be at TT $6.4. However, most of these items sell here for TT$10 or more. If you consider shipping fees you would be about even if not cheaper than ordering online for these items. 
P.S. There is an ELF Trinidad Facebook group.
Just to mention some of these items while so affordable may not work well for you so make sure and do your reviews before purchasing. Whether you spend one dollar or one hundred you should always look for value for money.
Has these sneaky elves invaded your makeup stash! Some of them have taken up permanent residence at my place. HELP!
XOXO

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

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.
