Orly Holiday Soiree- Ingenue

I have found a new love in Orly with it sleek super handy gripper cap and big bottle size. The weekly trip to Wonderful World was in time for me to see the entire display of the Orly Holiday Soiree collection. The Orly‘Tis the Season (from their 2010 holiday collection) and Birds of a Feather collections are also out.
Orly costs $38TT for the18ml bottle so out of these three collections I choose only one called Ingenue from their Holiday Soiree collection. It’s a plumy purple color with gold sparkles and oh how they sparkle in the sunlight. So beautiful and reflective that it was difficult to photograph properly. I used two coats of polish but the intensity of the colour was still a bit sheer so maybe three would have been enough for an opaque finish. The formula was easy to work with and dried very quickly between coats. The bottle comes with a cute nail file tied around the bottle neck.
I was so impressed by this colour as well as the Orly range of colours. The formula is just as good as my good old China Glaze. Even though it is more expensive per bottle (China glaze at $TT30 vsOrly at $TT38) you get 4ml more since China Glaze if only 14ml per bottle.  They work out around the same price per ml anyway.
I definitely will be checking out more colours from Orly.

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
