Girly Gothic

Wearing black has never been my style. I’m a cupcake and pink flower girl. But experimenting with colour comes with the makeup territory and since venturing into the unknown black region I find myself falling in love with this colour. Combine black with an inner gothic diva spirit and bamm, this look emerged! 
Don’t worry it is super simple really.
Step one; don’t comb your hair! Or if you have hair like me that just wants to fall straight down, then add some volume with some mousse and just makes it messy.
Step two; start with a clean base; sheer foundation and powder. That all folks!
Step three; black gel eyeliner with a slight winged out top lash line and bottom waterline for me. Of course you can try the dramatic cat eyes with some false eyelashes. 
Step four; fix your pout! I used black eyeliner to slightly outline the shape of the lips and then blended the liner inwards. Finish the lip with a black lipstick. I used NYX Round lipstick in Penelope. Although it’s a black lipstick, the colour is not super black on first swipe, so that’s why the lips look a bit sheer in the middle. Pack it on if you rather have a super black lip.
Step five; Comb the brows upwards for a messy look and add black eye-shadow or pencil liner! All done now! Easy right? 
Overall I find this look gothic but with a girly edge. I will go full on gothic one day! Hope you enjoyed anyway!
Happy Girly Gothic!
XOXO
Naomi

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.
