Learning Beauty Week 8- Practical Exam Time: Pedicure, Manicure & Makeup

Session 15: So for this session we used it to practice on our weak areas before our 3 hours practical. For me the weak areas are that dreaded liquid eyeliner and the nail art using the fine tip brushes for the strokes. But practice makes perfect right?
Session 16: So guys I am nervous before the exam. I get there on time and almost everyone is already there and has their stations set up. We start off with greeting our client (she is my cousin) and then off to doing the practical. I started with her pedicure, then manicure and left the makeup for last since I am better at makeup.
I have to admit the pedicure was my least favourite and I wasn’t fully settled on what design to do. Even though I wasn’t thoroughly happy with it, it was enough to get a pass.
Now the manicure, this was so much better. Her nails were great to work with and the design turned out pretty well.
Now for my favourite part, the makeup. Honestly we did some practicing the night before so reproducing this look was a breeze. A gave her a green smoky eye look. Since she had big eyes and a nice crease it made my job a whole lot easier.
At the end of three hours I was exhausted but grateful that I finished on time and hopefully passed the practical. Well actually I did!
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. 

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.
