NYFW Peter Som Fall 2014 Inspired Nail Art: Graphic Orange

I love taking inspiration from fashion to incorporate into my nail art. Last time I was also inspired by Peter Som and for this new season I am again in love with an orange design of his. This look is more interpretive and graphic from my regular designs.


I am totally in love with this dress by Peter Som for his Fall 2014 collection and I am equally in awe of this bright, bold orange nail polish color from the L.A Girl Color Pop collection called Crackle. Two coats is enough to give you an opaque color. Here is the pure color taken with flash lighting.


Nail Tutorial: 
1. Paint your nails two coats of L.A Girl color pop in crackle.
2. Using a fine striper brush and black acrylic paint, add on your black details. Use your picture as a guide. 
3. Add grey for a color block look. 
4. Using white and grey paint, wipe off most of the paint from your brush and then swipe along the nail bed in small areas to replicate the brushed on look. 
5. Seal in with a top coat.

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.
