Let me tell you about a foundation I’ve recently fallen in love with…
I have used all sorts of foundations. My favorites are MAKEUP FOREVER, MAC, BB CREAMS and of course INGLOT. My sister recently showed me the KRYOLAN foundation. And all I can say is WOW. The coverage is super amazing and you don’t need a lot of it at all!
I think the best part of it is that it lasts forever. By that I mean the amount you get and how much you will actually use. It’s brilliant.
Here are pictures of my face. Half without any foundation and the other just covered with the foundation. No concealer was used.
After I finished applying the foundation, I then did my contouring and finished off with powder, after which I proceeded with my “face painting”.
I think the coverage is amazing. New favorite for sure.

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:
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
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 tub low-fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons plain full cream yogurt
2-3 tablespoons rice flour/almond flour
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.
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

Hey there Pouters
Have you ever looked at pigment pots in makeup stores and thought to yourself how on earth do people use it? It’s quite ‘shocking’. The colors are very deep, intense and bright.
In my opinion, the secret to using it successfully is in the 1) base, 2) blending and the use of water.
Here are a few photos of me using pink and purple pigments from INGLOT.
I first used a KRYOLAN white paste as a base for the colors to ‘stick’. As you can see, I also used sticky tape to form a straight line and also to catch fallout from the pigment powder. A cream eyeshadow was used on the inner corner and on the brow bone.
The more you blend, the less intense the colors will appear.
I shaped my brows, applied liquid eyeliner on the upper lashline, applied eyeliner on my lower waterline and of course topped it all with mascara.
As you can see the look isn’t as intense as it looked in the beginning when pigment was being applied.
I mentioned earlier that one can use water with pigments. That will cause a very intense look, but extremely difficult to blend. You’ll have to blend the edges out with dry pigment powder afterwards.
Another use for pigment is adding powder to clear nail varnish. You’ll have your very own custom nail color..
Enjoy your fabulous, colorful and
