Nail Challenge Day 27: Inspired by Me :)

When I think about nail art and how far I have come along I am reminded of my love for the colours purple and pink along with being called the gradient queen since I am obsessed with ombre nails. So how about we create a look incorporating all these things?




But let me add one more huge detail that has increased my skills in nail art; her name is ROBIN MOSES. From the first day I discovered her youtube channel, I have been hooked on her detailed video instructions on various nail art techniques and looks.

Get the Look:
1. Paint your nails two coats of Sacha Cosmetics Barefoot in the Sand nail polish.
2. Add a block of purple (Sacha Thriller in The Dark) close to the nail cuticle and covering the top third of the nail bed.
3. Add a pink block of colour underneath the purple block. You can mix the two slightly together. For my pink I'm using Sacha Dance to the Beat.
4. Touch up the tips with Barefoot in the Sand.
5. Using acrylic paints, add some handpainted flowers randomly on each nail.
6. Add some black stems and leaves
7. Complete with a shiny top coat!



If you prefer seeing the original video for this design, here you go! Enjoy!!!

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. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

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.
