Entering 2012 with Orly’s Stone Cold from the Mineral FX Collection

Happy New Year 2012! Here’s to you hoping you have a great new year filled with lots of happiness and love!
So I was on the search for Blue Year’s Eve from China Glaze’s holiday collection but alas it was nowhere to be found. Somehow I ended up with this gorgeous cobalt blue from Orly’s Mineral FX collection called Stone Cold and I am indeed impressed. It’s absolutely stunning. The rich blue colour has these shimmery particles in it but it’s not like the regular glitter particles. It appears softer like the blue shimmer is almost merged with the actual blue colour. I loved it so much that I actual wore the colour on both my hands and feet and let’s not talk about how many stares and compliments I am getting. Everyone I meet seem to love this colour too!
I use three coats of polish sealed with one coat of Seche Vite for good measure, but two coats would work just fine for a nice opaque colour.
Even though it is incredibly beautiful it was more expensive than the average 18ml bottle of Orly from other collections. At Wonderful World Stone Cold cost $TT46 while Prism Gloss Gold from the Bling in the New Year collection cost $TT38. Since I wear a lot of jeans I do see this colour getting a lot of use for my toes. I’m going to work that extra cost.
Let’s see how many Orly polishes from other collections I will amass this year.
Happy Shopping for this New Year 2012!
XOXO

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…

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.
