T&T Hair & Beauty Tradeshow 2012


I hope you had a great weekend! I certainly did with this year’s Hair & Beauty Tradeshow. The theme for this year was Beautiful Woman 2012. A few tips for tradeshows like these, if you can get a layout of the room and who will be at each booth, that way you can narrow down where you want to see first and develop you own strategy for working the room. Getting there early helps with parking and grabbing some for the earlier goodies if you are up for shopping. 


If you are a hair lover there were quite a few booths offering everything from hair care to hair tools. My favourite was the Conair booth since I was interested in hair styling tools but nothing excited me more than to see the weave master stylist himself Clem Lue Yat.

Makeup lovers have no fear; there were lots for you as well. There were more booths about hair than makeup but these two booths made up for that. Maybelline being a main sponsor of the event had their own booth with great prices and many newer items from their line. And yes the Color tattoos were present even though Tenacious teal was still not available. 
 
Why don’t you have some Eye Kandy or some Naked Cosmetics? The Eye Kandy from Eye Kandy Cosmetics are glitters for the eyes and body. You could get as a bundle the clear liquid adhesive base with liner brush and one glitter colour. The Naked cosmetics are a mineral makeup line made in the USA. Get the gloss pot which is a mixing medium and you can turn the eye-shadow into in lip product. But you can use a pink shade as an eye-shadow, blush or lip colour. Multi-use product! 
 
Are you the adventurous type? Try one of these hot lips tattoo stickers. 
 
Prefer nail polish over makeup or hair? T&T Salon supplies were more than happy to offer a range of China Glaze polishes from the basic colours to the crackles to the magnetix line. 
 
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the event. It’s always interesting to discover different brands and its local distributors or just a local distributor with better prices of some well loved beauty items.
Happy Beautiful Woman 2012!
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. 

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.
