So Deliciously Forbidden with MAC Posh Paradise Mattene Lipstick

What did you do this weekend? Well I took a rather impromptu visit to West Mall and of course I never regret such trips. For me a trip to the MAC store is a must for me (along with a Burger King stop!). Now while I feel like I already live in a paradise, MAC’s Posh Paradise collection is quite impressive! I love the array of vibrant rich colours of the lipsticks, nail polishes and paint pots.

Trying to stick to my budget I only allowed myself one piece and got a Mattene lipstick called Deliciously Forbidden. How do they come up with these names?
Either way I say it is an accurate description of this colour. I love the sleek black packaging and velvet feel of the lipstick tube.
This lipstick has a semi-matte finish and is indeed more moisturizing than a normal matte lipstick. But besides that the colour is absolutely stunning! Take a look.
I would describe this colour as a midtone berry pink and I can see myself wearing this to work. Actually that’s what I did and I got many a compliment on my new lippie colour. I had to reapply after lunch but that lasted me straight through into my evening class until I got home (roughly 7 hours).
While I am getting a bit overwhelmed with all the new collections from MAC at the same time I am totally loving it. Of course all the great paint pots I wanted were sold out in store so now I’m off to see if by chance I can get ‘Nubile” at their online store. Wish me luck!

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…
