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!

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.

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…
