Ciate ColourFoil Manicure Tutorial + Review

Now this is a post I've been meaning to put up for weeks now. I've just been too busy/lazy to write it up and post it. My bad! I bought this Very ColourFoil Manicure kit at Kit Cosmetics at enex100 a couple of months ago and was super excited to give it a whirl. Ciate always comes up with innovative nail art kits that always look gorgeous but may not be the most practical things in the world (Caviar nails, I;m looking at you!). Read on for the tutorial!

Lady Grey Tea Cookies

Good Lord, I've been a terrible blogger! Resolving to try harder as of...now! I've had these cookies hidden up my sleeve for almost a month now (not literally up my sleeve, because that would just be messy) and I'm a horrible person for withholding because believe me when I say; you need these in your life! They're buttery, delicate and utterly decadent because I dipped them in dark chocolate like the excessive person I am. And in a bid to be more twee and kitschy (twitschy?); I shaped them like teabags and threaded them with twine. I like cute stuff... so sue me! Read on for the recipe.

DIY Cocoa Butter Milk Bath


Continuing on with my obsession with DIY beauty treatments; and also because I have ridiculous amounts cocoa butter left, I give you: Cocoa Butter Milk Bath! Cleopatra was notorious for bathing in milk and apparently, so is Charlize Theron. Great company to keep if your ask me. Milk baths are great for dry skin as the lactic acid helps to loosen the proteins binding together the dead skin cells and this makes it easier to exfoliate them away. The cocoa butter helps to moisturise your skin (I've talked about how awesome cocoa butter is before so don't worry, I won't go on about it.) and not to mention, it smells delicious! This DIY is as simple as grating some cocoa butter, mixing it with some powdered milk and cornstarch and... that's it. That was quite anticlimactic actually. Read on for the recipe.

Moroccan Shakshuka


 Can you imagine a more perfect breakfast than runny eggs, poached in a zingy tomato sauce laced with spicy chorizo and topped with creamy nuggets of feta cheese? Didn't think so! I first fell in lust with this dish at the Twilight Hawkers Markets, held every Friday night in the CBD during the summer months, last year and I've been perfecting my own version ever since. Shak Shuka - Moroccan Experience is the place to go for shakshuka in Perth. They serve theirs with a side of harissa mayo and crusty french baguettes. Truly excellent. If you ever spot them around town, I'd definitely recommend giving them a try! Read on for my take on this iconic Moroccan dish.
