Nail Challenge Day 22: Inspired by a Song

It's a funny story how I came about this song inspired nail design. It just so happened that I bought the two colours used in this look together and I just love the fact that they have gold elements to them. I thought they would look good together but didn't know quite how until for some strange reason I starting singing Gold Digger! So here's my Gold Digger design!


As with all sparkly polishes they can be sometimes hard to capture on camera but if you turn it slightly so the reflection is not dead on you may get some gorgeous sparkles like this.


This colour is called White Cap. It's very sheer even after two coats you can still see the nail bed but the colour itself is exquisite. Ok so now you just add in you Solar Flare gold glitter pieces and use a toothpick to guide the pieces into your pattern.



Stay tuned for Day 23: Inspired by a Movie 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 Gold Digger!

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.
