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!

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.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
