Happy Friday! Volume#10

Who doesn’t love a Friday? It’s the start to the weekend where we beauty lovers can get some more time to indulge in our stashes of beauty items. More so we get maybe some time for ourselves to just do nothing much or something extravagant! It’s also a time for me to share more about me to you that may or may not be beauty related. Feel free to share what you will be up to this weekend. Happy Friday!

Beauty Adventure? I'm still on vacation and no vacation for me would be complete without some shopping! Being a makeup hoarder means I neglected the other aspects of myself. My face and skin care was very minimal and since I am getting older I can see some fine lines appearing and huge pores staring at me. What's a girl to do but go to the nearest Estee Lauder store and find some things to help me out! I'll let you know how they work!

Next up my neglected hair! Steaming your hair helps with falling hair so I had a hair pampering session. Argan oil products were used that left my hair feeling like silk! It was a good thing my hairdresser was nice enough to let me know what she used and I was able to find the same products at Pennywise! 
Plans for the weekend?  I saw the Lorax this week and oh boy how that was a fun movie! I can't stop singing the words, "let it grow". I want to pop in a few more movies this weekend and of course hit the beach! Beach makeup anyone? 

Something about me? I was born in Guyana, which is in South America. Of course I have dual citizenship since I'm also a citizen of Trinidad & Tobago by decent. I've been to Tobago only twice! But it's so beautiful there, I have to try to visit more often! 
Happy Friday!

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.
