Facing the unexpected,
Yet braving the storm,
Refusing to go down
And willing to go on…
Learning to know yourself,
Fighting your own devils,
To sculpt out your inner strength,
From all grave perils.
Laughter of innocence,
And family and friends,
Feeling of bliss and fortitude,
Amidst menaces multitude.
Loving a lot and getting lost,
Blessed on a greener earth,
Glory of whose seeps through the veins,
Resplendent till we breathe our last…
Hello everyone! I couldn’t help but write some scratchpad poetry when I heard the name of The Body Shop’s line of fragrance, Life Is. 🙂 Well now when I was looking up on the internet, I realized this is not a brand new fragrance range. TBS did have some fragrance range called Life Is… some time back. Then it added Life Is… Gold to the range. However, once again with the “Gold” removed, TBS now leaves space for your imagination to weave in the meaning of Life Is… 😀 Read more
Hey everyone! As Cyclone Mora wraps its arms around coastal Bengal, my city is having its fair share of thunderstorms and rains. While the annual south west monsoons have ventured in the Deccan, Mora is prepping up the eastern region with its pre-monsoon showers. 🙂 The temperature over the last two days is near bearable now. But I wish I could just enjoy the rains with a cuppa and The Accusation. Sigh. Life as in dreams…
But I find other ways to perk up my day. With some colors and heady smelling products. 🙂 One indispensable component in my stash these days is The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet. To be using this after a cold bath in this weather makes for an icing on the cake. 😀 Read more
Hi everyone! I have been daring myself to wear purple lips for quite some time now. 😀 When MAC released the Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection, I grabbed the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Flamingo Road from Kabuki’s creations. I have been wanting to wear it ever since. Given the bold dash of color that Flamingo Road is, I decided to go little subtle for the rest of the face.
Hi everyone! Under the same makeup collection launch as the Matte Lip Liquids and the Cushion Foundation, TBS had also launched eye shadow quads. After all no makeup launch is complete without something for the eyes. 🙂 I picked up the Brown variant, as it is a neutral eye shadow palette and had a decent mix of shades that I could wear about anytime.
This eyeshadow palette has been waiting for a review for quite some time now. I wanted to do a look using these and few other recently reviewed products, but somehow that kept pending and hence the delay.
Hi everyone! Today I have a product that I have been using for quite some time now. I bought it from my last visit at the TBS store. The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation is my first try at cushion foundations. This is mainly because the cushion foundation trend is made famous by Korean brands, and most of them are available online. So I hadn’t the heart to buy from them without swatching.
This is when TBS launched its new makeup collection with #SealedWithAKiss, under the umbrella of Jacqueline’s signature range. I have a lot of faith in TBS, so I decided to pick one cushion foundation from them. Not that they gave me a lot of shade options, but I was happy to note that one of the two (seriously? just two?) shades did blend in seamlessly on my NC 40 complexion. 🙂 So I picked up 03Malawi Beach almost immediately. The other shade option is 04 Wanaka Honey.
