Igniting Love for Valentine's Day

Hello Bellezza! Let's get the flames of love ignited and ready to go in time for Valentine's Day! Get this Hot Red Beauty with China Glaze's Igniting Love from their Cirque Du Soleil collection.


To get this simple and sweet Valentine's Day nail art, start off with a base coat to protect the natural nail from staining. Dark colours and reds have the tendency to stain the nails. Add two coats of your gorgeous orange based red crème colour to set the tone for your nail design.


The rest of this simple nail art design uses just two more colours; pink (Surreal Appeal; also from the Cirque Du Soleil collection) and a deeper red (Ruby Pumps). Both are colours associated with romance <3


The Hearts are all made using a dotting tool, you simply connect the dots in a heart shape form. You may sketch the outline first and then dot over the line but I did mine freehanded since I rather a more imperfect heart. The pink hearts and additional pink dots were created using China Glaze Surreal Appeal. Now just add a touch of red glitter by adding China Glaze's Ruby Pumps. Seal in your design with your favourite top coat and you're all done!


Happy Valentine'sDay!

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.
