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!

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.

Welcome back everyone! Today I'm sharing my replication of the Wilton method to making Royal Icing and some simple decorations you can make with the Wilton tip 21. This is an open star tip and can be paired with a simple leaf tip like a Wilton 352 to make small drop flowers.
