Nail Challenge Day 14: SunFlowers

Hello Sunshine! You want to brighten up your day today? Well these sunny sunflowers just might do the trick. Doing this nail challenge reminded me that I haven't really done much flower nail art but here I have the chance to change that...now.



So I started with two coats of Orly's Smolder from their Fall 2012 Fired Up collection. I then used a small detail brush to hand paint China Glaze's Sunshine Pop as the main flower with China Glaze Street Chic as the middle brown centers. Added some green leaves and black spots with acrylic paints to complete this design.



Stay tuned for Day 15: Delicate Print and be sure to stop by Jayne's blog Cosmetic Proof and Traci's blog DrinkCitra to see what gorgeous designs they also created for this challenge! 

Happy Sunflowers!
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.
