Pampering Myself on Weekends

I am always like a busy bee. From work to home, in traffic, doing chores, writing articles for this blog, out shopping! When I have a free weekend, just open for me to do whatever I please sometimes it’s difficult to just relax and do nothing. This weekend for me was like that. I was in control and could do whatever I wanted and I really needed to pamper myself.
Now I have really neglected my body since my makeup habits have taken over. So I though why not pamper my body and I knew just how to do that. Very simple! Just a good handmade soap and a body scrub. Mind you I have had two luscious soaps from Stc and company since my visit to the Upmarket last year. These babies were going to meet my new Ecotools bath and shower mitt for my relaxation time. 
The luscious handmade soap ($25TT) is called a Daffodilly soap and had a pleasant but natural scent that really calmed me. It has a fragrant blend of daffodil and lily. It was firm in texture but made just enough bubbles to make a girl giggly. And the Ecotools bath and shower mitt I found at SuperPharm was a match made in heaven for my luxurious soap! It was firm enough to exfoliate the skin but yet so gentle and far from the scratchy ones I had before. For a moment I couldn’t tell I was exfoliating the skin but when I stepped out of the shower my mom felt the skin on my shoulder and remarked on how smooth it felt.
It’s pretty simple really but these two babies were all I needed to really pamper my neglected body this weekend. I’m hoping to spend more time with luscious lotions and even on treating my neglected hair too this year! How do you spend a quite weekend at home? I would love to hear it!
Happy Pampering!

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.

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…
