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

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…

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.
