Simple Tribal Nails


Even though I’ve never been one to go with the flow, I seem to be following trends lately. Nail inspired by tribal prints are absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t help but try to do this for myself. Would you care to join me? Here are some pretty simple steps. Feel free to change up the colours. I have been in love with these two metallic shades.
Step one: Apply base coat if using a dark shade. I applied China Glaze’s Strong adhesion base coat followed by two coats of Orly’s Stone Cold. 
Step two: Using another color of your choice, apply a strip of that colour down the middle. I choose L.A. Girl metallic nail colour in Antique gold. Quick tip, make sure your base colour and this second strip colour are contrasting ones for that pop. At this point I wanted to stop since my two colours were stunning on their own! But let’s move forward. 
Step three: Draw black lines to the edges of where the two colours meet each other. Try the Sally Hansen nail art pen in black if you have shaky hands like me. 
Step four: Finish you design by drawing zig zag lines within the two black lines and add dots within each triangle. You’re done!
Wasn’t that super easy? I can see myself trying out more variations with different colours and lines. Following trends can be fun! Give it a try!
Happy Tribal Nails!

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. 

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…

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.
