Chocolates and Makeup

Doesn’t that sound like the name of a great blog? Should I rename mine to that? Anyways for the Christmas holidays eating chocolate happens big time and lots of them come in great packaging. Combine that with a makeup lover’s growing collection of makeup and it’s a match made in heaven.
Seriously I was on vacation after Christmas and trying to figure out a better way of organizing my makeup when it happened. The empty Christmas tree-shaped plastic container that previously held Ferrero Rocher chocolates were just the perfect thing for my loose eye-shadows. You know I for some reason had a great fear for loose eye-shadows but I have since conquered that and now my stash has grown and is growing out of control.
Now the actual packaging insert could hold 12 round chocolates but my eye-shadow pots were just barely fitting in them and of course it just made more sense to remove it to be able to store more.
Now the moral of the story is not to rush out and buy chocolates just to store your makeup but rather utilize what you have around you. Try to recycle something old into something new. Who knows what you may uncover and of course you save money by not having to buy a new organizer for your makeup.
Happy recycling!
XOXO

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

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…

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.
