Plain Old Polish- L’Oreal Paris in Mauvie Star

Hey remember I said I wanted to try out new brands this year? Well L’Oreal isn’t a new brand for me in terms of their makeup but this Mauvie Star is the first L’Oreal nail polish in my stash. This first experience was a surprisingly good one. Overall I loved it. Of course it doesn’t bowl over my love for China Glaze but it impressed me enough to wear this colour for more than just one day. 



Interestingly enough I can’t find another colour in my stash that looks even close to this colour. I have true pinks and true purples but Mauvie star is pink and purple wrapped up in one. 



What I loved about this polish wasn’t just the colour but the formula was smooth, no bubbles in sight and just one coat gave a good opacity and two coats as shown in these pictures was enough to show the true beauty of the colour. I was really impressed with this line of L’Oreal polishes. I go minor chipping after one week of wear which is fine for this nail polish addict.

 
Have you tried any L’Oreal polishes? Do you find them amazing like I did? Tell me your favourite L’Oreal shade! I’m dying to try some more!
Happy Mauvies!
XOXO

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. 

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.
