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!

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…
