Happy Friday! Volume#2


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!

Reflections? How did the week fly by so quickly? I was hoping to prolong being 28 for as long as I can since this Sunday will be my 29th birthday but alas I don’t have the strength to hold back time. Instead I will just enjoy my last few days of being 28 in the true essence of myself, SHOPPING!
Splurges this week? Yes, yes and hopefully as much as I can. I indulged in my first Nars order and got myself two items from their spring collection 2012. I can’t wait to receive the Mexican Rose lip pencil and Gaiety blush. In case you are a Trinidadian lady wondering about purchasing Nars, just order them from Amazon. I am yet to find a store here where you can get Nars. boo hoo. 
Weekend plans? More shopping anyone? Yes me please! Well I might as well get some new things and blame it on my birthday celebration. I’m making a stop at my MAC West Mall store, who knows what I may pick up here! And if I’m lucky, a small stop at Maracas beach after I do my next laser hair removal session at Hands On in Maraval. I’m still trying to see the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. After reading all three books I just really want to see how the movie plays out to them. 
Oh and if you are a trini check out the Chez Nous sale which features locally made products. Hope you guys have a great weekend. I will be eating some cake and ice-cream 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.
