Delicate Nail Art

Ever saw an eye-catching design that you just couldn’t get out of your head? If you haven’t joined the Beautylish community, you should… now! This nail design was inspired by a beautylish babe called Tereska H. Check here for her design.
I took the concept of her design and used red and pink colours in mine instead of her original blue and white. My pink swirls are also a bit tighter and packer more into my nails than hers, but you get the idea! 

It’s really simple to do! Just paint your nails with a base coat; I used China Glaze’s strong adhesion base coat before adding two coats of China Glaze Ruby Pumps (deep classic red with sparkle). To make clean up of the lines easier, add your top coat as well.
Next all you will need is a Sally Hansen nail art pen in a contrasting colour. I used light pink. Just add random swirls onto your nails. The points of the pens are really precise but in case of any mistake you can wipe away quickly since you have your top coat down as a protective barrier. All done!
Hope you enjoyed this really simple manicure and be sure to check out the beautylish website for some more inspiring designs!
Happy Delicate Designing!

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.
