Orange You Hot? Another Summer Neon from China Glaze

Oranges anyone? So sweet and juicy oranges! Yum!!!!! I’m not sure why I was instantly drawn to this colour besides Flirty Tankini but this orange polish goes well with this year’s theme of Tangerine Tango and is perfect for another sunny beach outing. Put on your sunglasses before proceeding!

To get a decent manicure, apply a base coat to eliminate the staining, two coats of your orange polish and finish off with your top coat. 
 
Oranges remind me of my aunt’s orange field. She has rows and rows of oranges at the back of her home in the countryside and when the trees get ripe with fruit, the branches hang down low. Of course there are always the nice juicy looking ones that are too high to reach. I love seeing the oranges peeping out behind the dark green leaves and so I was inspired to add some leaves to the tips of my manicure. For the leaves I use Agro (how fitting a name!) which is from the China Glaze Capital Colours collection. 

 
From some reason when I added my usual Seche Vite top coat the orange polish seem to crack at the edges, which was strange since I’ve never had such a reaction before. And of course it made my lovely manicure not last long! Such a pity L Either way, I would call this manicure, Orange leaf tips! 

How do you wear your oranges?
Happy Hot Oranges!

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.
