Cucumbers and Cashmere- New colours in NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils


Cucumbers and cashmere! Sounds fun right? These are two newer shades in the Nyx jumbo eye pencil line. Does it matter that I never got the popular shades Milk or Blackbean?
Anyway I am drawn to colour and these two new additions to my stash are welcomed since I love greens and didn’t have any green base to go with my gorgeous MAC Lucky Green, and well the Cashmere looks like a nice neutral base colour as well as a close to nude shade I was looking for to open up the eyes a bit. 
Cucumber is a beautiful bright green with no shimmer, just flat colour. It does look a bit sheer on application when used as a base, I was really looking for that green punch of colour at once. But if you use it for lining the colour shows up more intense.
Cashmere on the other hand is a shimmery nude champagne colour. It is just as creamy and works beautifully as a base just as cucumber.
I do find I get a bit of creasing on using these JEP’s alone for colour so I usually have to just use them as bases instead with a powder eyeshadow on top. Cucumber is my favourite of these two. Stay tuned for a new look using these beautiful new jumbo eye pencils. I’m running away now to find the other new shades, cobalt and peacock!
Happy Cucumbers!
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. 

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.
