NYFW: Pop of Sunshine (Victoria by Victoria Beckham Inspired)

So you're a gothic chic? No problem, but how about you add an unexpected pop of colour to change it up a bit! My latest fashion inspired post comes from the gorgeous Victoria Beckham and her Victoria for Victoria Beckham designs for fashion week 2013. 

Fashion Source

Victoria Beckham is a fashionista. Her style for this design shows clean lines but with that burst of colour in the middle that is sure to draw the eye in. The piece to me is modern and easy to wear with simple accessories to let that yellow middle be the focus. Now if you can't seem to get your hands on this outfit, how about you try my simple tutorial to wear her art on your nails instead.


Get the look:
1. Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails from staining
2. Apply one coat of an opaque black polish. I used Nabi nail lacquer in Black. Allow to dry fully.
3. Using tape, create an open middle triangle leaving enough space at the tip to create a French tip in black.
4. Apply a yellow polish to the open triangle. Repeat application to get an opaque yellow triangle. I used China Glaze Sunshine Pop (from the Electropop collection 2012)
5. Remove the tape immediately. Clean up any yellow transfer onto the black with a black stripper polish. You want crisp clean lines.
6. Apply a top coat to seal in your design!



Popping Sunshine!

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.

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…
