Being Me, Being Bee

Hello everyone, I'm very excited to be back to my blog. You see when I initially started in 2011, my interests and intentions for the blog were very different to where I am at now in my life. I just wanted to get my blog known. I wanted to make a name for myself. But I've evolved. I'm happy in who I am and I know who made me. I'm no longer interested in doing a post because I have to get a product review out or because it's been too long between posts. I want to just be me; be Bellezza Bee. Someone who wants to share my beautiful life and part of this world with you. 


So let me start by saying I still do love beauty products. I still love nail art. But I also love singing, music, tea, coffee, food, my twin island paradise of Trinidad & Tobago and my Jesus. My faith keeps me strong, determined and smiling, My family is a lifeline. My weekends feel so short but I enjoy every minute of it, even with all the chores. I don't need makeup to feel beautiful but yet still I love wearing it. I love seeing the transformation it brings, like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon. 

I've recently rediscovered my love for high heels. Being short and having a boyfriend who is taller, makes me feel more confident as I slip myself into a pair. I mastered the art of walking in heels since I was a teenager but now I aim to find ones that are more comfortable. Think Piccadilly or De Nulce conforto. 

As for makeup, I've been appreciating our local brands and products. I try to #SupportLocal business places to keep our economic vibrant and since it stimulates more of what we as a people can do with our talents. I'm in love once again with Sacha Cosmetics and visit their Image centres quite often, not just to buy new things but for an eyebrow wax or two. Caramia is introducing new items and it's amazing that the colours look absolutely amazing on my skin tone. I'm so proud of Ambrosia Cosmetics getting into skin care. Oh my I love their new soaps and the sugar scrub is just yummy. Reviews are coming soon!


There is so much going on in our country and in the world so I am making time for prayer. Yes, it works. I have so many testimonies of the goodness of God, I can write a book and plan to share some of those here with you. He is so wonderful to me. 

I can't stop smiling. I have so much to be grateful. Here's to life. While I'm now on a different part from where I've started, I'm just being me, being Bellezza Bee.

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.
