Hardcore Metals (Antique Gold, Copper, Graphite) with L.A. Girl Metallic Nail Polishes

I’ve fallen hard for metals! L.A.Girl Metal metallic nail polishes make that so easy to do. So shiny and bright, sparkly like a star in the dark midnight sky! Sounds poetic right. Well they are dreamy; the three colours anyway I managed to hijack from Wonderful World. At $15TT a bottle I can get two of these babies for the price of one China glaze (Side note: I still love me some China Glaze)

From left to right: Antique Gold, Copper & Graphite

Pure colour, from back view
The first one up is the majestic Copper that sparkles in the light with its reddish orange tone. The oranges specks really show up in the sunlight. Love!


Next up is Graphite. In the initial pictures and in the bottle it shows up more silvery but two coats really show why its name is graphite. The silver specks show up now. It’s so rocker chic.
And last the Antique Gold that is the star of the three. So far everyone who has seen my nails with this colour on wants to know what it is. So as the name applies it’s not a true gold and I guess the old flare makes it so interesting.
Well even though the Antique gold is my favourite, Graphite is still a strong contender with Copper following not too far behind. I enjoyed wearing all three and see myself making a bee line for Wonderful World again soon to see what other precious metals I can dig up.
XOXO

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.
