Happy Friday! Volume#16

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? Can you tell that I'm crazy about nail polish lately? I seem to can't get enough of the bright colours and trying out different brands. I'm started posting plain manicures in my new series called Plain Old Polish. It's my hope to be able eventually to show you all the colours in my stash. Of course the fact that I was almost to 100 bottles annoyed me so much I made a trip to a Wonderful World (pun intended) and bought just a few more to push me over the 100 mark.

Plans for the weekend? I'm planning to do some nail art. I want to try out Galaxy nails and maybe a freehand art design using acrylic paints. I found a set with loads of colours and since these are very pigmented and easier to work with for nail art, I see greater designs in my future.

Something about me?  I finally got myself a new camera and it's so beautiful to be able to take pictures of gorgeous life around you. Remember my soft lily look? Well here is the flower that inspired that look. Super gorgeous right? And my mom planted some squash in our yard, which is always so amazing to see when it grows. Green thumbs!

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…
