Happy Friday! Volume#9


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 have been trying to control myself from buying too much makeup lately and I have succeeded. I can actually go into the MAC store and not buy one item. Success on my part! But do makeup brushes count as makeup. Not in my book so these new Real techniques brushes were justified right? So far they all feel really soft with the taklon bristles and the starter kit comes with this super fun case that can fold as a stand. I added a stippling brush and powder brush to the mix and the case had two slots for them. Together they all fit nicely in the case which is small enough for my handbag. Double deal!

Plans for the weekend? I’m on vacation!!!!! Can you see me doing a happy dance? The working world topped off with crazy traffic equals stress so I’m taking a week off to enjoy some downtime or uptime shopping. Added bonus of it being Easter time! I can see myself and the girls doing some crazy makeup and nail art.

Something about me? I finally started with my garden. I visited a beautiful plant nursery lately and the blossoms were so lovely and inspiring. My small trough just has some herbs that I can use for cooking. I’m so excited to see them grow. 
From left to right: Dill, Purple basil, Green basil and Mint.
Happy Good 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.
