Going Short like Victoria Beckham: A CocoWig Review

Hello gorgeous! Today’s post is all about the hair. My first experience outside of my real hair was only quite recent for my wedding and I loved having a fuller head of hair than my natural thin, medium length and stringy do. Just a few clip in pieces was enough to make a great impact to my overall look. So here I am again trying to now venture into more styles and this time look at changing my overall appearance with now a wig from CocoWig.

Before I get in to the overall look, let’s do a mini review on the Coco Wig online site and catalogue.
  • Simple navigation with main categories to the top. Each category is broken down more so you can go straight to what you need. For example the African American Wigs section you can quickly choose between the style, texture, material, length and even cap construction.
  • For those who like to follow trends and the stars, go to the More Celebrity section. I particularly love the Halle Berry styles.
  • Once you find a style you are interested in, narrow down by colour, size and number you want.
  • Sale, sale, sale! You know us ladies love a good sale and this site is crowded with good discounts and sale items.
  • If synthetic is not for you, go straight to the human hair section dedicated to just that.
  • Payment is simple and there are lots of options available.
  • And lastly, there are lots of items available for FREE shipping and yes, FREE gifts for any purchase.

Ok so back to me choosing a wig. This was not an easy task to choose. There were so many options available but since I usually go with medium to long hair at all times, I decided to look at the short and I mean short hair options. Victoria Beckham has been one of those celebrities I admire greatly for her character and roles as a mother, wife, business woman and fashion diva! So I was instantly drawn to her simple look but it’s yet a bit messy and playful with this short, almost super pixie cut. Even her makeup is usually simple, sometimes smoky eyes, nude lips and glowing skin.

This particular wig is synthetic so its shape and style is more or less set to how it is sold. It is 8 inches long but longer in the back with bangs to the front. For smaller heads like me, you can choose a size of petite and of course you have multiple colour options. I prefer lighter to medium browns but to get Victoria’s look, choose a darker brown, almost black colour. Wear with style and flair!

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.
