Happy Friday! Volume #18

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? So I really did need to go shopping for neutral nail polish colours and it was so ironic how I only happened on the China Glaze Safari Collection only after I had just completed my Blue Zebra and Golden Leopard nails. Anyway, I chose to walk away with just Kalahari Kiss and Elephant Walk. It was hard to leave the other gorgeous colours behind but I had to stick with what I came for!

I honestly thought I wouldn't like these as much as I love my bright colours but just one coat of Kalahari Kiss was enough to convert me into a nude polish girl for a few days. It's so creamy and almost opaque in one coat. Perfect office colour for me.

Can you see my meeting notes on my hand? lol

Plans for the weekend? Well to use all that gorgeous polish of course! My good friend Kaveta told me I should move away from Africa and head to Asia for my next nail art inspiration. I'm thinking Cherry Blossoms are in order. 

Something about me? My two year old flat screen tv malfunctioned and I've been without my television for a month while the tv man works his magic. But boy do I feel like incomplete without it! Wondering now what people did when there were no tv's! 

Happy Friday!

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…
