Luscious Lotions

What girl doesn’t love to get a good rubdown in lush lotions? Lately I have a craving for sweet smelling body lotions and as I started collecting them my 3 year old niece was totally alarmed! She opened my dresser drawer and the cute little eyes were shell shocked. Of course anything more than 2 makes her think that her aunty is rich so bear that in mind!
What girl doesn’t love Victoria’s Secret? I have a bad liking for their body butters and I can run through them fast since I usually slather them on after my evening bathe. The smells are soothing and the texture of the lotion on your skin does feel like butter! Well not the greasy kind anyway. I get my fix of these from a booth at Trincity Mall. They usually retail for about $85TT. 

What girl doesn’t love Bath and Body Works? These are all over Trinidad and the prices vary from $65 to $100TT each but I found this store, it’s the first store on the left on the ground floor of the Auzonville Mall that sells them for $59 a bottle! I discovered them on my road trip to the Sacha Image Centre.

What girl doesn’t love Bodycology? This is one of the newest lotions I have added to my favourites. I found these at my last trip to SuperPharm and love the fact that you can get the matching body mist. Layering scents from products makes the overall scent last longer. I can’t remember the exact price for these but think around $65TT.

What girl deserves a good foot massage? All! After a hard day of work on your feet wearing those tower high stilettos or from driving long distances your feet should demand some attention. I give them just that by massaging the relatively inexpensive (about $24TT at Pennywise) Freeman’s barefoot lotion for that tender loving care feeling!

What girl hates when they discontinue a good lotion? Me. I got the ELF Shea Butter Conditioning Body butter when I made my first purchase with them online. The smell was amazing and the texture was smooth and buttery without feeling too sticky. At only $US5, this was a great deal but of course, it was too good to be true. I never found out why they discontinued this line. 
Happy Lotion Hunting!

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.
