Soft Lily


Trying to beat the traffic and with work being about 1.5 hours away from my home means that usually I leave home when it is still dark and return when the sun is going down. This weekend I actually had time to remember what the outside of the house looked like in sunlight and I rediscovered this beautiful lily that was growing right outside the front door! Before I could take some pictures, the rabbit got to them first! Haha. I'll show you when some more bloom. Eitherway the main colour is orange with yellow on the inside and gorgeous green leaves. This look is inspired by the lily but instead of using such vibrant shades I keep the colours soft. 
Eyes
Ambrosia Cosmetics Serene Sunset (matte orange) used in the crease and blended with yellow
Ambrosia Cosmetics Canary Gem (matte yellow) use in inner tear duct, lid and lower lashline
Ambrosia Cosmetics Havana Cream (matte peachy brown) used for highlight
NYX Cucumber Jumbo eye pencil used in waterline and lower lashline
NYX Slim eye pencil in Yellow used under yellow for lower lashline
MAC False Lashes Extreme black mascara
Lips
L.A.Colours Moisturizing Lipgloss in Romance
NYX pencil in Café
I guess the brown tone lips would represent the earth! I’m really into flowers lately. The gorgeous yellow and pink poui trees with the orange flower immortelles are blossoming, flooding my trip to work with such beautiful sites. I’m off to find some flower gardens!
Happy Lilies!

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.
