Happy Friday! Volume#7

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!

Beauty Adventure? Not quite sure how my MAC trip turned out to be a NYX trip instead but after leaving the NYX kiosk I was way too excited to try everything that the MAC store needed to wait. Yes I said that! NYX has some really great products and if you want to try some crazy colours without breaking into a bank then give them a try. 
I’m super excited to start using these colourful slim eye pencils and these new shades in the jumbo eye pencils. Am I the only one who doesn’t have their jumbo eye pencil in milk? 

Plans for the weekend? Unfortunately duties calls this weekend and so I have to work on Saturday which means Sunday will be chores day and prepare for Monday day! On a positive note, on my way to work there are so many colourful blooms that make my drive to work much better.

Maybe after work I can finally make my way down to the MAC store to see if any good lipsticks are left from their new collections.

Something about me? Since I was talking about blossoms, well you should know I was in the 4H club when I was a little girl and since then I was always interested in plants and flowers. I’m on a new quest to make my own flowers garden! So far this gorgeous bougainvillea is the main star attraction. My mom wonders if I can find a lipstick like this. Any suggestions? 
Happy Friday!

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…

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.

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…
