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!

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.
