Happy Friday! Volume #4


Who doesn’t love a Friday? It’s the start to the weekend where we beauty lovers can get some more time to indulge in our stashes of beauty items. More so we get maybe some time for ourselves to just do nothing much or something extravagant! It’s also a time for me to share more about me to you that may or may not be beauty related. Feel free to share what you will be up to this weekend. Happy Friday!

So for today’s post I plan to answer some questions posed to me by the beautiful Mia. Go check out her blog! She’s Trinidadian too! 

What made you start blogging? Living in Trinidad & Tobago is amazing! But there were very little beauty blogs available to inform me of what items exists, where to get them here or on new collections being released etc. I thought I would share my discoveries with my people but also to share any of my beauty encounters with anyone willing to listen. I also love to travel and shop and would love to share those beauty encounters with you. Check my About Me page too!

What's your favorite color? The colour pink is my all time favourite colour but lately I am drawn to purples, blues and greens. But I’m a serious pink nail polish addict. 

If you got a free vacation to any destination of your choice, where would you go? I would love to visit Japan to explore their beauty products and techniques but also they have some outrageous fashion.

In other news, this seems like the month of birthdays for me and of course that chance to shop for birthday presents. My niece has long luscious hair so I thought it was only fitting to explore her creativity with some new hair products. And for my sister, a great lotion or perfume would do any day! Any birthdays this month for you?
Happy Friday!
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. 

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.
