Halener Rustique's Mystery Box

In August, Halener Rustique celebrated their 2nd Anniversary and as part of the celebrations, they offered what they called

The cost of the box was $250 including shipping but all the stuff we got in the box was well pass that amount.

There was an issue with our local post office but i think eventually everyone who subscribed received their box.

Ours didn't come in a box but i'm glad because we got bags. And not just a cheap ole plastic bag.
Makeup bags!!!

It came with the sweetest Thank You card ever!!!

The bag it came in could not have been more perfect for me. 
Pink and Black with the sweetest little Butterfly Zipper

These are all the Goodies that was stuffed inside the bag.

I absolutely loved everything i received.
But was blown away when i got the Urban Decay Potion Primer.
Heard this thing is Amazing!!!

Receive an Eyelash Curler.
Not a fan of curling my eyelashes but i'll give it a go...

Elf's Cream Eyeliner in Ivory.

Some Nude and Vibrant Pigments.
Desert, Truth and Passion.
Desert is my Favorite...

Elf's Baked Bronzer - My First Bronzer :D

A Coastal Scents' Contouring Brush.

Elf's Hypershine Gloss in Joy

Halener Rustique Lip Candy. Can't wait to try this. Smells Fruity.

And my most favorite thing in the entire package...

They went beyond to make it personal for me.
I Love Neutrals and I Love Glitters...

Check out my YouTube Video on it!

Halener Rustique - YOU ROCK!!!


Haul - Confessions of a Bargain Hunter

 A small miscellaneous haul.

But these product are so good, i must mention them.

I've heard so many review on this one product, when i saw it in Pennywise i just knew that i had to try it because i normally use Oil of Olay Makeup Removing Wipes which is a bit costly.
Roanna raved about it on her Youtube Channel.
Eshe had good things to say also - check her out here.

Simple Baby Moisturising Wipes 

These clips are so inexpensive but so useful. I use these when I'm styling my hair.

Sectioning Clips

I use these sponges for applying powder to my face. The white one though I'm very new to and didn't know what i was in for...

This morning i wanted to try out my new fluffy powder puff so i took it out of the packaging and the hubs was standing right in front of me when i just ever so lightly dusted his face with all the fluffiness you can imagine. A huge amount of shimmer was left on his face where ever the fluff touched. 
OMG!!! This was right before work this morning. Well i don't have to tell you the rest...
But i had a field day with it after i found out it was packed with shimmer.
All shimmery this morning :)
Oh! The perfect applicator for Urban Decay Ebidle Body Shimmer.

Cotton Powder Puff
Face and Body Puff

This is by far the best reasonably price body wash i have ever use. Won't be changing it any time soon but i am trying out all the scents.

Suave Body Wash

This is my first gel liner. Not a fan of the brush but it's still so cute.

Eyeliner Gel

I'm a huge fan of Neutral Colours so this simple palette caught my eyes but i am a bit disappointed with the matte brown one (the last one to the bottom). It just didn't want to swatch but the others were so soft n beautiful. For that price - well worth it.

Neutral Eye Shadow Palette

And finally, i just can't seem to see glitter and leave it alone.
Ain't it Pretty! I'm Hypnotised!

Pink Nail Art Glitter

Thank you for your time!

Sweet Temptations: Banana Nut Bread

Textured View

Simple...Yet Elegant...

This one's a staple.

Every kitchen should have a personal recipe for Banana Nut Bread.

One slice with your morning coffee or tea and you are set for the day.

Front View

Top View

Banana Nut Bread
Recipe adapted from Caribbean Pot's Youtube Channel with my personal tweak.

1/2 cup Butter (Room Temperature)
1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Buttermilk*
2 Eggs (Room Temperature)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract or Essence
2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
4 Bananas (Over-ripe)
1/2 cup Chopped Nuts**


  1. Cream together the room temperature butter, sugar and salt.
  2. Add the buttermilk, vanilla and eggs to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  3. Sift all the dry ingredients and fold into the creamed mixture until smooth. Do not overwork or the batter will get tough.
  4. Mash bananas to a smooth consistency. Add to batter and fold. Remember do not overwork your batter.
  5. Add chopped nuts.
  6. Grease and flour your baking pan. (Loaf Pan, Bundt Pan, etc.)
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Bake for approx. 1 hour and 15 mins but after the 1 hour mark, do the toothpick test and if it's wet, give it the extra 15 mins but watch closely.

Be Prepared...
Your House is Gonna Smell Amazing...


  • *Buttermilk in Trinidad is expensive and don't keep very long even when refrigerated. So i make my own. Pour one (1) teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice into measuring cup and add enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one quarter (1/4) cup line. Let stand for five (5) minutes.
  • **Typical Banana Nut Bread usually calls for Walnuts but i used what ever i had in the freezer that day which was pecans. Freeze your nuts (hehehe) to prevent it from turning rancid. 
  • If the top gets to the nice golden brown color that you are looking for, cover with foil and continue baking till done.

Guaranteed you will want to make this Banana Nut Bread every time...

Happy Eats...
