Bellezza Journey


When I first started this blog, about 8 months ago, I did it with the intention to provide more information to beauty lovers here in my home country of Trinidad & Tobago and maybe the Caribbean at large. But now I love meeting new persons from all over the world. It always amazes me when I get an email or comment from anyone.
Another reason for starting my blog was Temptalia. I stumbled on her website about a year ago and was indeed impressed at her dedication to her blog with providing her audience with in-depth reviews. I am nowhere near her about 5-6 blog posts a day but she gives me inspiration to reach for the stars.  

 
Another way she inspired me was with her challenges. Recently she held a spring nail art challenge and I entered my Flower Fields design and then she featured a spring makeup challenge and I entered my Soft lily look. Both were featured on her site and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see my work there! 
What makes me even more excited is the fact that I incorporated locally made makeup and nail polish in my designs. The Soft Lily look used eyeshadows from Ambrosia Cosmetics and my Flower field nail art used Nail Fusion stripper polish made by Sacha Cosmetics. What a way to put a small country on the map! I really feel accomplished and when I had writer’s block or nothing new to review, there was always some piece of my home country to spur me on.
I do want to also thank my readers whose little comments make a big difference in my life and give me more encouragement to do better. And all those blog awards! What can I say! I’m speechless.
So are you up for a challenge! Temptalia has a new challenge on Disney nail art. I’m sticking this one out to allow you to submit your work, be featured and get inspired to do better.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful journey with me so far. I look forward to continuing on with you!
Happy Journeying!
XOXO

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.
