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!

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. 

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…

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.
