Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Swirly Sweets

Oh I have a bad sweet tooth. I eat everything from chocolates and candy to cakes and cookies. The best part about it is that they don't add a lot of weight to the waistline (just yet). For today's nail art design I am taking inspiration from candy and those awesome swirls found in peppermints and other hard sweets as well as those huge lollipops. 


For this design I used an assortment of bright colors for the bases: 
Maybelline Navy Narcissist (blue), Orly La Vida Loca (pink), China Glaze Igniting love (red). The swirls themselves were handpainted on using white acrylic paint and my #3 striper brush from BornPrettyStore. 



Stay tuned for the 8th design in this challenge: Studs

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.
