Dancing the Samba

The Samba is a Brazilian dance that is lively and fun filled with rhythm dancing alongside Samba music. I'm in such a dancing mood with my new hair streaked with golden goodness and bright eye colours. 


My bright eye look takes on the concept of color blocking but with a slightly blended effect.


Get the Look:
The Eyes Have It :)
1. Apply a white primer all over your eyelid area blending with your fingertips upwards towards the browbone. 
2. Apply a soft lilac shade all over the lid. I used the lightest colour in the CaraMia GrapeVine trio.
3. Using a stiff blending brush, apply CaraMia Samba single eyeshadow into the crease above the lilac shade and blend softly towards the inner tear duct area stopping 3/4 way in.
4. Blend out this matte orange Samba with a sparkly orange shade from the CaraMia Safari trio. 
5. Use a matte skintone colour to blend out your sparkly orange and also use this as your highlight colour.  
6. Line your half top and bottom outer lashlines using a pencil liner such as NYX Slide on pencil in Sunrise Blue. 
7. Apply the blue shade in the CaraMia Ocean Green duo eyeshadow directly over your blue pencil liner. 
8. Add mascara and complete your eyes with a pairs of falsies. I'm using Eylure Naturalites.   



I completed the face using my CaraMia foundation routine, blush in Apricot and lipstick In The Nude :)
Run your hands through your hair and let's go do the samba!

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.
