Pantone Colour of the Year 2012: Tangerine Tango


Colour is so important to our lives. It’s even important in the business world since certain colours may be representative of a brand or product. When Pantone released that the colour for this year would be Tangerine Tango I decided to shop for this colour in my closet. I already love the colour orange so this maybe the opportunity to wear it more often.
Clothing: This is where I surprisingly have a lot of this vivacious reddish orange colour. I particularly love the pure colour in dresses. And when I don’t want so much I incorporate it into my outfit with a simple tee.

 Nail Polish: I don’t often use orange on the nails but when I do I always get stares, of the good kind. Since this colour is not one that you would probably use often then buy a reasonable brand like Kleancolor in Boogie Nights for only TT$15 at Wonderful World.
 
Makeup: Right now I have orange eye shadows and one lip gloss but no hot tamale orange lipstick. I have been craving MAC Morange for some time now so maybe this is a great opportunity to make it happen.

A few more things that I am still on the lookout for would be a tangerine tango pair of shoes, handbag (use to have one but it dry rotted from lack of use), and belt for those days when I just want a pop of this gorgeous colour. Give yourself some Tangerine Tango love this year!
Happy Tangerine Tango!

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.
