Happy Friday Volume#11


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? In my school days when I was stressed over assignments and projects I would take a break by indulging in chocolate and anything sweet to unwind. Now that I'm all grown up and the pressures of the working world and unbearable traffic are my new stress triggers, this girl does some shopping! Good for de-stressing, no so good on the wallet. So yes I indulged in the new Maybelline Tattoo and Loreal Infallible eyeshadows. But another part of my unwind session involves swatching colours just to see how pretty they are! Acquired from the beauty blogger in me. These gorgeous swatches were enough to calm me. Can you tell what they are?

If you want to do some unwinding for yourself and you just happen to be a little Blush Happy then head on down to your nearest MAC store for a blush fix with the recent Tres Cheek collection. Both don't get you heart set on Modern Mandarina like me if you want to go with the Tangerine tango trend this year. It was already sold out :(

So makeup is not your thing? Then you might be interested in a quick fix manicure with the imPress press on nails available now at Wonderful World. 


Plans for the weekend? Duty calls but this time in the form of a family and fun day! Can you see me jumping into the bouncy castle with the kids? But before I head on down to enjoy that fun, I plan to indulge some more at the Trinidad & Tobago Hair and Beauty Trade-show down at the Crowne Plaza. Head on over here for more details.

Something about me? I love a good pair of heels, pumps in particular. Maybe it's part to being short but they just make the legs look long and lean for me. The only time I wear flats is for driving. 
Happy Friday!
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.
