Simple Black Pumps from Steve Madden

I first discovered Steve Madden shoes when I was on vacation in Miami. My cousin took me into this exquisite store that took my breath away. I came out with none of his shoes in hand at that time but he certainly left a huge impression with me.
Low and behold Steve Madden shoes revealed themselves to me locally at West Mall. I don’t even know the name of the store since I have renamed it the Steve Madden store. And yes besides the MAC store, this one is a must see for me on any visit to West Mall.
I always go in and never buy since his shoes are a bit on the pricey side but a girl can look. However, I’m such a lucky girl that I have friends that pay attention and decided to get me these simple black open toe pumps for Christmas 2010. I’m guessing they were on sale but were probably around $600-700TT.
Over the last year these pumps have been my BFF, go with me almost everywhere, never leave my side and always make me feel confident and beautiful. Did I mention tall too? Dolls, you can’t go wrong with investing in a good pair of black heels. He takes me from office to evening wear in a snap.
So if you're ever up to meeting my good friend Steve Madden go check him out at West Mall. You just might meet your next BFF too!  Think I will get lucky again this year?
Happy Shopping!
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. 

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.
