Orly Smolder and Flicker from the Fired Up Fall 2012 Collection


Are you a huge fan of the Hunger Games? I am most definitely. Both the books and movie was pretty decent to me. Anyway I thought Orly’s Flicker looks like the perfect shade to embrace some fire hot nails! 


Isn’t it gorgeous? This is my favourite colour out of the two that I have from Orly’s Fired Up Fall 2012 collection. For a moment I got lost in this colour which looks perfect with my medium dark skin tone. So let’s just look at Smolder and Flicker together! 


Smolder is a dark cherry red colour while Flicker is a gorgeous burnt orange colour with golden shimmer. It sparks so beautifully in reality that I couldn’t pick this up on camera! Flicker can be a one coat polish if you go with a thicker coat. I used two coats here. The only thing I couldn’t quite understand is why I got so many tiny bubbles in this polish. This was not the case with Smolder which went on so smooth.

Did I mention Smolder was a dark cherry red? It’s really pretty and truly a darker vampy colour for the fall. This one I feel can also pass as a one coat polish but the beauty is at its maximum in two coats. No bubbles in this smooth talker. 



So that’s it folks! Just wanted to share these two gorgeous colours with you! So tell me, what are you favourite fall colours? Are you heading out to get any colours from this Orly Fired Up collection? Stay tuned for more gorgeous plain polishes!
Happy Fire!

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.
