Golden Katy Nail Art

Gold, gold, gold. Oh how I love thee! This is a colour that I can wear year round. From shoes to clothing and jewelry, then of course I can use it in nail art. Today's design is simple with a gold on gold concept for all the gold lovers out there like myself. This look was inspired by nail art seen worn by Katy Perry for the Met Gala 2013.

Nail Tutorial:
1. Start of with two coats of any golden colour but preferable a metallic yellow gold. I'm using L.A Girls Metallic nail polish in Gold Plated.


2. Next take any contrasting colour; I'm using blue. Wipe off most of the colour from off the brush. Then apply lightly in downwards strokes. This is just to give some dimension to your design. 
3. Apply nail studs to give a 3-D effect to your design. I'm using square studs from BornPrettyStore to form a flower pattern around a simple red rhinestone.

4. Apply a light top coat to keep everything in place and to add some shine. Voila!

Coffee Date Night 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.
