Out of the Barren Sands arises NYX Desert Rose

Hello beautiful! I know I am late in discovering many wonderful items made by NYX but hey better late than never right? So this is my first blush from NYX! Do a happy dance for me! I am lately crazy about blushes so why not give one a try. I asked the charming NYX lady from the Long Circular Mall kiosk to help me find a colour that was matte and would be suited for my medium dark skin tone. And like that one blossoming flower you find in a barren desert, the stunning Desert Rose NYX blush revealed itself to me. 
Now on first impressions I felt it looked like a medium shade pink but on application it appears more like a berry pink, but beautiful color all the same. It’s a matte blush and extremely pigmented in one swipe. It goes well with my medium dark skin-tone. The wear was excellent, lasted me for most of my work day. 
Hey focus on the blush!
I couldn’t be more pleased with this as my first NYX blush and I’m definitely looking out for more shades of these on my next trip to the mall. Hold me back someone!
Happy Blushing!
XOXO
Naomi

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.
