I'd seen a few looks lately with these type of colors. And was really inspired by Illamasqua skin sketching technique.
And this is the result. Photos are taken after about 4-5 hours at work, and with the main light source being the TV. But I thought I'd share anyways :)

I did try my hand at some cupcake bites, but had some difficulty, and need some more kitchen tools to make them presentable (but they were very tasty despite being misshapen).
I did try and make basket handles for mine, but didn't find any sour straws anywhere, and trying to braid laces wasn't sturdy enough to stand. So I just focused on getting the sanding sugar look right. Will have to look for lager muffin cups if I try and decorate with mini candy, just so there is a bigger surface to work with.
Enjoy the snaps of the result:

Yesterday I saw these photos take for Rachel's Wonders Jewellery.
They were modeled by Sherbet Fizz with make up by Samantha Gardner make-up.
And I think it is stunning work.
So I decided to try and make a similar look my self today. I sort of reminds me of a sunset over the sea.
My orange eyeshadow isn't very pigmented, but I think it worked out all right anyways.

But a little update on what I've been up to the last few months in picture form:
I got my first Nails Inc. polish this month. It came with In Style magazine. I liked it cause I have no polishes in that kind of color. I paired it with tips made with a Sally Hansen polish in the color Royal Romance.
Bad picture I know, but I was in a hurry. I was at a wedding this weekend, and this is how a had my nails. I used: Bourjois in Beige Paris 39 as a base, Sally Hansen in Royal Romance for the flower petals, Max Factor Nailfinity in 704 Disco Pink for the center of the flowers, and for dots around the flowers I used Bourjois in Rose Fashion 52 and OPI in Pearls Night Out.
I got these washable face pads, to replace cotton pads. And it has really cut down on my use of cotton wool... I still have cotton wool, but use it mainly to remove nail polish. I hope to get more on a later date, so I can stop using cotton wool completely for my face, and only have it in for nail polishes. Their service was really fast, and they have tons of things if you are thinking of being a bit more environmentally friendly.

We started buying organic fruit veg and salad boxes online, and I just thought I'd share what we got this week :)
First we have apples, pears and mango
Carrots and cooked beetroot
Lettuce, broccoli, celery and leeks
Cauliflower, pepper fruit, broccoli, leeks and lettuce
Onions and parsnips
Pepper, mushrooms and tomatoes
Just thought I'd share a bit from valentine's day.
First photo is of the pretty flowers my man got me. Carnations are my favorites :)
Next I'd done my nails up after a video from Illamasque, about how to make the nails featured in the campaign for the Throb collection. I'd use other colors next time, with a bigger contrast. And I've reshaped the attachment now for next time as well.
