Colourful Easter Nails

If you want to maintain the best aunt of the year award, never promise to do easter nails to cute-face 3 and 8 year old girls and have no intention to follow through with it. They will be disappointed. And just in case you run out of time or ideas for your easter nail art just go simple with a different pastel shade per nail and add loads of dots. Simple and effective! 
The polishes used for this manicure are Peach (China Glaze Peachy Keen), Lilac (China Glaze Sweet Hook), Mint green (China Glaze For Audrey), Pink (OPI Pink Friday) and  Periwinkle (China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le). You will also need a top coat and a dotting tool.

I applied two coats of each colour since some of the shades were a tiny bit streaky. Allow to dry properly and then start your dotting using your dotting tool. You want to add your dots in rows and for the line of dots underneath you want the dots to be in the space instead of directly lined up with the ones on top.  
Feel free to add what ever colours for the dots you like but make sure the colours are able to contrast a bit against the base coat. Now make sure your dots dry completely before you add your top coat. Since I had the time, I waited for about 15 minutes and then proceeded with my Seche Vite top coat. That’s it!
Happy Easter!

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!

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.
