Non-bake Baileys Oreo Cookies Cheesecake Teaser!

Oreo Cheesecake or Baileys Cheesecake? Well, what about having them both in one cake! That was exactly what I did for my hubby’s birthday, a perfect marriage between Oreo Cookies & Baileys Irish Cream!
The result was a blowout! It was a fresh interpretation of a novel challenge on the plate for me; this new taste will unquestionably appeal to the adventurous palates. The birthday cake stood out for its Oreo biscuit texture & rich cheesy Baileys flavour. Only complaint from me: I could’ve been more generous with the Baileys. Lol!

SK-II Wrinkle Specialist Review

Beauty rituals have thrived through generations & we've come a long way since the days of Cleopatra. During my modelling & flying days, I struggled just as much as anyone with my skin, especially when my job required me to be skilful at things like make-up, skincare etc. In particularly, the air in the cabin was so dry, I’d to pay a lot of attention keeping my skin nourished. Besides taking supplements like Evening Primrose, Royal Jelly, Bird’s Nest etc, a reputable range of skincare also came in handy.
I’ll be going 46 this November; fine lines, pigmentation etc, seemed to be appearing everywhere on my face. These days, I try to stay clear of make-up, unless really necessary. Instead, I’d invest heavily on skincare. But do these products that promise youthful appearance really work?
