How to Organize your Hand Bags

When there are 5 girls at your house; all with different tastes and a love for bags you might have a little chaos. For us we began stuffing our handbags in every nook in the house much to the annoyance of the male folks around. Besides mocking us for never being able to find what we were looking for in our handbags, now we were being mocked for not being able to find them. Problem solved!
Now this is not my original idea I saw it somewhere else but you try finding a coat rack in Trinidad! I went all over looking for this and just mentioning the words ‘coat rack’ had people staring at me wondering like “Is she for real, a coat rack! She think she in America oh wah!”
But I persevered! Actually my mom found it while casually read the newspaper and saw a Brand Source ad. Apparently here we call it a clothing rack. Ok so armed with just a screwdriver, you have to put this baby together for yourself but the instructions are pretty simple. This version of the clothing rack has 8 branches on the main trunk and will cost you about $150TT.

Once you have assembled your coat rack, I mean clothing rack, then go ahead and organize based on your preference. I did mind based on size and colour. Because the branches are so close by you may have them touching each other due to their sizes. Try to put your bigger handbags on the four lower branches and your smaller ones on top. 

Of course my nine west handbag that I use daily for work and has like a ton load of makeup doesn’t make it to this rack. That has its own section in my book shelf. If I didn’t need my books a great way to store your bags would be on display in a book shelf. You can also arrange them along the top of your wardrobe. 
Happy Organizing!

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.

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…
