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!

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.
