Nail Challenge Day 8: Flakie Idol

Oh how I love flakies! Chunks of gold embedded in a clear base. It has the power to transform just a regular coloured polish into something special.


Here's the base colour used, L.A.Girl Color Addict polish in Idol. It's a greyish blue with subtle golden shimmer.


So flakies polishes like this one I used, China Glaze Luxe and Lush from the Hunger Games Collection, two coats of it should be enough to create enough golden chunky sparkle. It's so much prettier in reality, the camera seems to not be able to perfectly capture the sparkles.


Stay tuned for more nail challenge inspired nail art and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies.

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.
