Back to Nature: A Polish Days Challenge

Hello beautiful! I'm a huge sucker for the outdoors, the bright sunshine and blue skies with the gorgeous tropical flowers all around me. For today's post I got inspiration from some beautiful roses in my garden and also incorporated one of the Avant Garden China Glaze collection colours for a double taste of garden beauty.



The base colour is called Fade into Hue, a periwinkle colour from the Avant Garden collection. The formula was a bit thicker than usual but the same two coats was enough to give the desired opacity.


The actual design used acrylic paints to create the green stems and leaves and pink flowers. Acrylic paints are a bit easy to work with than regular polish.




And here are the beautiful roses that inspired this design. Small and cute! Now head on down to see the other Nature inspired posts in today's Polish Days Challenge!

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.
