Nail Challenge Day 2: Orange Nails

I have to admit I was a bit stumped for a while trying to figure out what to do for orange nails. My favorite orange polish at the moment is a burnt orange from Orly's Fired Up collection called Flicker. So I started off with two coats of Flicker but the other orange polishes were not to be left out so I decided on doing some watercoloured nails using orange colours. This is the final result!


So just to remind you on what Flicker looks like, here it is again! It is totally transformed by the use of the water coloured technique.


So all you need now is some acetone, a brush and some other orange coloured polishes. I completed my orange watercoloured nails using Santee Neon Orange, and China Glaze Orange You Hot? (from the Summer Neon Collection). I added just a tiny bit of white (China Glaze White on White) to create a bit of contrast between the oranges.





Stay tuned for Day three: Yellow Nails 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 Orange Nails!

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.
