#CAKE FOR DOGS – DOGGY CAKE GOOD ENOUGH FOR HUMANS

Good Friday Morning !

So on the 29th of July 2014 was my Neapolitan Mastiff Nina’s first birthday and I just had to organise her a cake and prezzies.

Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS: CAKE

1 Large apple or two smaller ones
1,5 cups rice flour/gluten-free
1/4 cup corn flake crumbs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda

1/2 cup plain full cream yogurt
1/4 oil
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
3 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

INGREDIENTS: FROSTING

1 tub low-fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons plain full cream yogurt
2-3 tablespoons rice flour/almond flour

METHOD: CAKE

Preheat oven to 200 deg C
Core apple then grate it, set aside.
Sieve the dry ingredients in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients, add the cheese and apple.
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Fold together and pour into prepared small cake tin or cupcake tin.
Bake for about 30 min until golden brown.

METHOD: FROSTING

Mix all the ingredients together until it’s a smooth consistency.
I added edible colour and glitter. (optional)
I used a zip lock bag to do the piping. Just spoon the frosting into the bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner and let the decorating begin.

So give it a try! Nina also received some gifts and of course shared her cake with Donatella! Let me know what you think and comment below! Also remember that a healthy dog diet should consist of good quality pellets with a higher percentage of protein. Cooking food or left overs is not good for your pet. Dogs can’t digest cooked bones, it’s not good for them. This cake is a treat that my dogs will be getting on their birthdays. Just as we have treats on special occasions. Some of us more than most. lol.

Remember that your pets should be treated with respect and love, but as the Dog whisperer puts it… remember that: first it’s an animal, then a species, then breed, then a pet.

Lots of Blessings

Muchluv, Sandylashxx

#BRIDAL #MAKEUP #TIPS

Hello to you Bride-to-be!

In October I will be a bride myself, and I cannot wait to be one. I’ll be marrying the most wonderful man, and I want to look really stunning, for him and myself.

Doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about what you as a bride looks like on your day. However, for the rest, parents of the bride and groom have a say about the wedding, ESP if they’re paying.

This post is my take on bridal makeup tips for your big day, and of course for my own big day.

20130220-114140.jpg

1) BE YOU
* If you are a woman who loves wearing loads of makeup everyday, why would you go minimal for your big day. Nothing is worse than not looking like yourself on your wedding day. This is the day you’re photographed the most. Of course, the same applies if you hardly wear makeup on a day-to-day basis. Don’t go off the path lady! Be you! The one thing you can do is, neaten up your look!

2) USE PRIMER
* Invest in a proper silicon primer. This will only give your foundation a flawless finish. Primers from SMASHBOX, WOOLWORTHS, INGLOT will ensure you have that smooth look. It also acts as a moisturizer in a way. Since many moisturizers tend to give an oily look and feel. Rather moisturize the night before, and only use the primer on the day.

3) DON’T HAVE A FACIAL TOO SOON
* Having a facial a week before your wedding can be a mistake. Many people don’t believe that, but our skin needs to go back to its “natural” state. With a facial, it’s still very oily, and sometimes sensitive. Foundation doesn’t stick too well onto “freshly facial’d” skin. (As I say it).

4) SHAPE THOSE BROWS
* Need I say more? Ok, there are some guild lines, like don’t over pluck! Biggest mistake ever. The fuller look will make you look younger and fresher. And what ever you do, please don’t make crazy high arches.

5) WEAR FALSE LASHES
* It is pretty simple. Two things you need to know here:
A) wear false lashes if you’re a fan of wearing a lot of makeup.
B) wear extensions if your a minimal makeup person.
The false lashes make a line, which you won’t see with a strong eyeliner, but extensions look natural. Have it professionally applied a few months before, so that you can get used to caring for the extensions. Remember to avoid the “real mink hair” lashes. We like to be cruelty free here.

6) AVOID SHOCKING COLORS
* This is not the time to paste splashy pinks, blues, etc on your eyes. If you feel this contradicts what I said in tip 1, don’t be fooled. Of course you can apply all your makeup, but if you’re seriously keen on color, only apply a fine line on the bottom lash line. No neon! No glitter liner! Sorry. You are only going to get so far.

7) GET THAT FOUNDATION TO MATCH
* Ensure your foundation matches your chest and not necessarily your neck. Depending on your dress, apply a tiny amount on your chest for photo flash purposes. Not too close to the dress though. You don’t want to have disgusting foundation sweat marks on your dress.

8) GET A GOOD MUA
* A qualified and talented makeup artist is key. Doesn’t mean it’s that one with the most Facebook or twitter fans. It’s the one that takes your personality, feelings and look into consideration. Have makeup trials. Not just bridal makeup trials, but for any occasion. If you are going out for a party, bridal shower, dinner date, etc have the makeup artist do your makeup. This gives you both an opportunity to get to know each other way before the wedding. Build a relationship with a makeup artist you like. (And to my fellow makeup artists, do your own makeup for your wedding day! You know what you’re doing, you know your face and in a way, it’s some “me-time”).

9) YOUR MAKEUP SHOULD MATCH YOUR LOOK
* Is your dress soft and romantic, big and poofy, classy and understated, classic and lacy, sexy and voluptuous?…. Etc
Well, your makeup should follow suit. A big poofy princess-like dress doesn’t go well with a minimal makeup look. Neither will a sexy dress. So take your look into consideration when thinking of your makeup.

10) CONSTANTLY TOUCH UP
* Have a small round clutch bag for your wedding. You don’t need to hold it for the ceremony or photos, but have a bridesmaid or guest look after it for you until you get into reception. In it have lipgloss, lipstick, lip liner, eye liner, mascara, foundation/powder compact, blush. It may seem like a lot, but it really isn’t. You can even go to your favorite makeup store and ask for sample products. Makeup application never looks complete if your lips look naked! Always apply and touch up!
