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!
XOXO

Coffee Date Night with Bae

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.
