Happy Friday! Volume #19

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? OMG! We can get Sleek and MUA or Makeup Academy makeup brands here! And for a reasonable price too! Double score. It seems like makeup and nail polish follow me around everywhere I go. I can drum up a conversation just around the word makeup or nail polish! It seems to be infectious too since I swear all the ladies in my office is joining in with the action which is how I got to know we can get Sleek and MUA in Trinidad! Take a look at my new babies!

So it's imported into Trinidad from a trini living in England, who happens to be my coworker's BFF. So add that to talks about makeup and BAM! Double score! This came in just in time, I really wanted to try out some more new brands (to me) this year. 

Plans for the weekend? Are you serious? Of course it's to play around in my new makeup! That and go see the new batman movie! Oh and I still have the Olympics fever! Really I can watch for hours on end. 

Something about me? I didn't realize until I checked out my blogoversary reminder that my blog is almost one year old! On looking back on some of my old posts, I'm horrified but at the same time I do see the progress I've made with the posts and pictures. Now who says giveaway time right around the corner? Find out soon but in the meantime have a happy Friday!  

Happy Friday!

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. 

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.
