Spontaneous Audrey

I really have being branching out in colour from the usual pink nails I adore. But Audrey makes it so easy to do that. I’m in love with this shade. It was funny that when I was on a recent trip to the beloved MAC Store, one of the MUA’s actually asked me if I was wearing Salad Dressing, a recent polish from their MAC Shop, Cook collection. Ahmm…. No….. This is For Audrey from China Glaze! Slowly looking away from her now! 
For Audrey is a beautiful cream finish robin’s egg blue colour that took me two coats to look this good! It has the typical China Glaze formula that I love. This gorgeous blue was named after the brilliant Audrey Hepburn for her role in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Have you seen the movie?    
Later on in the week, well I got bored and after seeing Illamasqua’s recent Human Fundamentalism collection I decided to pair For Audrey with this midtone purple cream colour; China Glaze’s Spontaneous. They make a rather unconventional pair but that is what makes this one so fun! The half moons are all hand painted in, and yes I’m working on my painting skills. 
What colours are you wearing on your nails this week? Hope it is super fun!
Happy Audrey!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

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.
