Happy Friday! Volume #14

Who doesn’t love a Friday? It’s the start to the weekend where we beauty lovers can get some more time to indulge in our stashes of beauty items. More so we get maybe some time for ourselves to just do nothing much or something extravagant! It’s also a time for me to share more about me to you that may or may not be beauty related. Feel free to share what you will be up to this weekend. Happy Friday!

Beauty Adventure? I'm jumping on the B.B. Cream train! The Garnier skin renew miracle skin perfector b.b. cream (a huge mouthful to say!) was the only b.b.cream I could find here now. Well actually I found the Estee Lauder one too but not in my shade. So far I really like that it glides on smoothly, blends in well with my skin-tone and has a great smell. I love products with multiple uses to make my makeup routine simpler!






Plans for the weekend? I recently discovered that Sacha Cosmetics has some new smokey eye kits! I'm really into palettes lately and this Smokey Earth 6 piece eyeshadow set is just super cute! I'm definitely going to play around with this for a new earthy look!






And of course, for a little downtime this girl needs to catch up on her movies! So many to see but so little time.

Something about me? Did I mention my first degree was in chemistry? I fell in love with the subject while in secondary school when I saw a colourful reaction in test tubes. I've always loved making colourful products in the lab and while my work life has drifted me far away from the lab, I'm still most interested in the chemistry of makeup and their colours too!

Happy Friday!
XOXO

  2. I tried the Garnier BB Cream as well but it was horrible for me. It made my face shine like I've never seen it shine before. My boyfriend walked in to our house after work and asked me if I was hot because he thought I was glistening from sweat! Glad it worked for you though, it's one of the more cost friendly BBCreams unless you take the ebay route.

  6. I'm very tempted to buy the full-sized Garnier bb cream; I'd gotten a sample in a magazine and I loved it! I'm going to vacation next month and it would be perfect since not only it's tinted and it has spf. :)

  9. Hey, where did you find the Estee Lauder BB Cream?

  10. I am so late.... I bought this a few days ago and used it twice..... It works like a face primer for me and keeps me matte(ish). We I don't shine like a diamond when I use it but I still get oily. I just don't like the white cast I experience when I put it on. But that is typical to products with SPF. I looked like I was embalmed..... But I do think that I am loving the product. My thoughts to be posted soon.

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.
