Silver Elephant Walk Nails

Because glitter makes everything special! That should be my newest saying. So the next China Glaze colour from their Safari Collection is called Elephant Walk. I'm crazy about Kalahari Kiss so was pretty excited to try out Elephant Walk. To be honest, its grey shimmer colour would not be one I would normally reach for (Imagine I passed up the blue goodness of Man Hunt!).



So this beautiful colour does indeed remind me of an elephant's skin. It's not as harsh as a concrete colour since it is lighter and the shimmer within the polish makes it appear softer. 





It took me just two coats to achieve an opaque colour. This is just the way I like my polish. It applied smoothly without any bubbles, pooling or patchiness. 



Now here's where the glitter came in to the picture. It's probably just me but I found the colour looked absolutely gorgeous on the nails but not for my hands! Does that make sense to you? Anyway, to make it all better I sponged on Milani PC Girl starting from the tips upwards in a gradient style.



Ah, that was so much better. Told you, glitter makes everything special! Care to join me for a silver elephant walk? 

Happy Elephant Walking!
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!

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…

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.
