One Fine Day - Banana Orange Chocolate Cake

New year, new header! I made a new header and want to re-branding my blog again, which mean I need to start writing more post here. So to start off with the new header hype, I will share with you a recipe of not really my favorite, but I made this out of boredom few months back. Basically it has the same base like my dairy and egg free cake, which is the bomb dignity, but the difference is this cake has some sort of fruit like banana and oranges. And also I used cocoa powder in this too, because again, chocolate always make everything taste better right?

And please excuse me, because I can't really remember the exact amount of the ingredients that I used here, since as you may already know, I don't follow the recipes when I cook and bake.

  • 500 grams all purposed flour (again, you could change the flour with almond meals if you want it to be gluten free)
  • 300 grams of caster sugar (I don't really fancy sweet, so I tend to make everything not too sweet)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup of canola oil (or any cooking oil)
  • 1 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 cups of ripped banana (mashed)
  • 1 cup of oranges
  • 2 tbsp of orange's zest

So I just throw everything into a big mixing bowl and mix all the ingredients and then pour it into the mould and bake it for like 45 minutes or so with 200 degree celcius.

I promise I will come with better contents and ideas in my next post! Happy valentine's day guys!

Maybelline Newyork Colorshow Lipstick Swatches

May is such a special month for me since its my birthday month, hope you all have a great days ahead this may!

I am one very picky person alive when it comes to lipstick. That why I always wearing lip tint or lip cream for daily basis. I like my lipstick to be matte, but moisturize matte not dry matte. I hate when my lipstick has glitter or something sparkly in it. I hate the glossy feeling, and I want my lipstick to be long lasting. Such a lot of demands right?

But all of my wish come true when Maybelline launched their Colorshow Makeup range last year. I'm not sure whether it was in 2014 or 2013.  But nonetheless, with its very affordable prices, they came into quite few lipstick shades, that most of them really caught my eyes. Most of their formula are matte without shimmer in it, very moisturizing and pigmented as well. Which totally my kind of lipstick

However here in Indonesia, they only came into 15 shades of lipstick that we can choose from, but for now I only own 8 of them which are (from top left) 402 Plum-Tastic; 403 Plum Perfect; 301 True Toffee; 205 Red Siren; (from bottom left) 103 Crushed Candy; 105 Pinkalicious; 108 Party Pink; & 201 Downtown Red.

It comes with four different color undertones, which are pink, red, orange, & purple.

103 Crushed Candy
Crushed Candy is a warmer version of Party Pink, which make it more wearable for daily basis

105 Pinkalicious
Almost similar with Crushed Candy, but Pinkalicious has darker shade

108 Party Pink
Party Pink is such a lovely bright bright pink, which is really bright almost look like a neon pink in my opinion

201 Downtown Red
Apparently Downtown Red is my favorite go to red lipstick at the moment. It has blue undertone in it, which I  kind of amaze that this red lipstick compliment my skintone the best from other red colors I ever tried

205 Red Siren
Red Siren is a vibrant red lipstick with an orange undertone

301 True Toffee
The most prettiest natural shade from all of them, a nude with an orange undertone, which probably everyone's favorite

402 Plum-Tastic
A purple pink color, which is such a shame, even though it has beautiful color, but from all the shade this one has shimmer in it, which is a big no for me. 

403 Plum Perfect
Probably my most favorite shade from all of them. Plum Perfect is the darkest and most used one. And I always bring her in my bag and purse wherever I go. A dark purple with hint of blue undertone. Trust me, it turns really great on the lip.

Overall, with the affordable prices, Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick has a great quality and worth to be added to our collection.

Until next time, xo.
