Nail Challenge Day 24: Inspired by a Book

Can you tell I'm totally letting two little kids decide on my latest nail designs? I remember saying to Abi that I need a book for inspiration and she immediately pulled out her favourite book, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Out of the huge collection of books they own, this is the only one she will read over and over again. She already wants all the other books in the series now.


So the base white is China Glaze White on White using two coats for it to be fully opaque. Next I just drew on the black lines using acrylic paint and a toothpick.


Do you know all of the characters in this design? Ok so the main character (on ring finger) in the story is called Greg. Next to him (the square face one) is his best friend, Rowley and next to him is Greg's bad big brother, Roderick.
Do you know the story about the stinky cheese? My nieces insisted I paint the stinky cheese! It's a just a stinky piece of cheese just on the ground growing mold and you just dont want to touch it or else you would have the "Cheese Touch" haha






Stay tuned for Day 25: Inspired by Fashion 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 Diaries!

Hello Bakers! I've been quite the busy bee lately baking up a storm in my baking classes. Today's post is a simple pineapple upside down cake. Enjoy!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

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…
