“Whey de lime” Fridays – The Makeup Show NYC 2019 et al.

It is slowly getting warmer and brighter! This makes me so happy! I certainly feel more alive once the seasons change. And in true fashion, there is suddenly lots to do. So…here’s what I am excited for this weekend.

Sephora Spring Bonus

Sephora Spring Bonus 2019, Beauty Insider

Sephora is having its Spring sale. You have to be a member of their Beauty Insider program. I have had a few items on my wishlist that I have been waiting for this time for. I have done a few Sephora haul videos in the past, so check out some of my recommendations.

Details on the Beauty Insider Programme here. Also if you are shopping online at Sephora, make sure you use Ebates*, cash back on many purchases (this is an affiliate link).

The Makeup Show NYC 2019

My favourite beauty event of the year! I have been attending for many years now, and I continue to be excited and inspired by the artistry, the education and innovation. The Makeup Show NYC 2019 tickets are still available and you can also get them at the door.

“Whey de Lime” Fridays – Memorial Day 2017

It’s Friday (yay!) and in the U.S. it is the start of a long weekend! It’s is Memorial Day weekend and it is also the unofficial start of summer although from the weather we have been having, spring wants to hang around as long as possible.

So, what I am looking forward to this weekend?

The Lime…

A bit of sunshine and mild temperatures.

“Whey de lime” Fridays: The Makeup Show NYC 2017 Preview

Ahhhhhhhh! Apart from Christmas, one of my favourite times of year is early May for The Makeup Show NYC.

the-makeup-show-nyc

I have written about it lots of times before. It is the largest makeup artist trade show in the US and many brands take the time to launch new products. But the thing that I am always most excited for are the educational classes. From learning about how to airbrush makeup to tackling social issues that are prevalent in the artistry industry. It is a great opportunity to learn from the absolute, very best artists, who have spent years honing their craft and ‘paying dues’.  There are over 75 brands being represented and some of my faves are Make Up For Ever, Temptu, Blackup Cosmetics.  It’s also a great place to check out smaller companies changing the beauty game such as Juvia’s Place, The Lip Bar, Danessa Myricks Beauty and Smith Cosmetics.

So that is pretty much the only thing that I am going to pay attention to this weekend. I need to plan out all the classes that I want to take…….and the brands that I *may* want to check out…

“Whey de lime” Fridays: Christmas is upon us!

wdlime_fridays_graphic Christmas

Can you believe it?  The holidays are here! It’s Christmas! C’est Noël!

This is my favourite time of year.  I simply love it.  The memories, the sights, the sounds, the food of Christmases past continue to stay with me.  For me it is not even about the getting of gifts, it’s the whole atmosphere, the feelings, the parang and the pastelles!

So that is what I am looking forward to this weekend.  Christmas.  I am home with my family in Trinidad and I am excited.  

So best wishes from me to you.  Let me know what is your favourite dish for Christmas?

Mine is paimie.

This is a traditional dish similar to a pastel made with ground corn, coconut,raisins, cinnamon and other aromatic spices.  It is quite sweet. Here is the paimie recipe from The Naparima Cookbook

And by the way, if you are still looking for an idea for your Christmas day get-together makeup look, I created this easy, festive red lip here.

Festive, holiday look

Laters!
