Hitting the Beach with a China Glaze Flirty Tankini

Who wants to go to the beach with me? Well China Glaze certainly does… again! They gave me a Sunshine Pop to my first beach trip to ensure I had a sunny day for that sunkissed tan and now they sent me a Flirty Tankini to show off my legs!

It’s an interesting colour for me since it appears more coral in pictures but in real life it’s more strawberry pink with shimmer though it leans towards a coral tone anyway. The shimmery goodness comes out brilliantly in the sunlight! 

As for the legs, why not embrace the floral trends and flirt with your toes too! Of course Flirty Tankini would be just as great with the regular old flip flop for the beach but with my short legs I prefer to add my a little height with these floral wedges. 

I’ve always loved tankini’s since I burn so easily in the sun and they afford a bit more coverage that the skimpy bikini. So I’m also embracing another trend, colour blocking by pairing a bright blue tankini to go with my pinky coral nails. 

I’m all set now! Tankini X2, Shoes and sunscreen. I’m off to the beach to enjoy some summer neon love with my new Flirty Tankini.
Happy Flirting!

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!

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.
