Nail Challenge Day 31: Brush Strokes Recreation

Today's the final day of the nail challenge and it is a bittersweet moment for me! I totally enjoyed trying new techniques and seeing how my actual designs were created from my initial thoughts and ideas. Earlier on in the challenge I feel in love with Jayne's watercolor design; with it's simple color scheme but gorgeous effect.


During my attempt to recreate her design, for some strange reason the acetone refused to diffuse the nail color to soften the look on the base color. So I tried and tried and gave up on the watercolor effect, but instead I used her same color scheme of soft white base with blue and pink as brushstrokes instead of the watercolor. 

Colours used: Sacha Cosmetics Barefoot in the Sand (nude), China Glaze Beauty Within (pink) and Hanging in the Balance (blue)


Thank you for seeing me through my second nail challenge and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies. Stay tuned for more nail designs and other beauty adventures with me!

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.
