Hi people! Winters have finally made up their mind to bid adieu, and I am relieved. I know I know, so many of you love winters, but I’m more of a tropical person. 😀 Nevertheless winter has its pros – lush fresh veggies – I love them. But the winter this time has been harsh on my skin. I got dry patches on my arms, that felt rough and bumpy to touch, near shoulders and I was in a state of shock, having incurred them the first time ever. Living in a warm, humid climate almost made me so-not-used-to so much dryness. This time however, it was testing. 😐
I did some research to identify the causes behind my skin conditions. I needed to find them because I needed to combat the dry patches at the earliest possible, as they were getting uncomfortable day by day.
Following could have been the reasons behind the rough, patchy dryness (any or all could apply) :
Taking hot showers frequently
Pores getting clogged from silicones in moisturizers
Merry Christmas people! How’s your day been? Winters are finally here and I have already stocked up on body butters. 😀 And TBS does it best with its holiday edition. I couldn’t of course keep my hands off from them when they launched Frosted Plum in their holiday edition. I have had Cranberry, Frosted Berries and loved them, but I wanted a different flavor to try out this time. Vanilla chai didn’t tempt me much, and this gorgeous purple had my heart!
Additionally TBS was running awesome Christmas offers on its site, plus prices were slashed under the new GST slab. Did I need any more reasons to buy a few goodies? 🙂 So I picked up their Frosted Plum shower gel and body butter (you know, to layer that scent conspicuously), in addition to few of their classic and newly launched products. I had shared a picture on my Instagram too when I got my package. 🙂 You can find me on insta here, and give me follow for updates!

Enriched with plum extract from Turkey, this special edition and soap-free shower gel will leave your skin feeling cleansed, refreshed and delicately scented with our fruitiest festive fragrance.

Hope you’re still reeling in the festive fever. I think I’m too, because just as much I have nothing to do with Halloween, I just had to snatch the opportunity to do this post. I prefer going easy on makeup most times, but in today’s post I have looks that we all should try, at least once in a while! It took me quite some courage to step out of my comfort zone, and create some dark looks with a dose of Gothic. But again, a few of them are subtler versions that you can categorize under fall makeup as well. For a look or two, I put my creative hat on and let Pinterest inspire me. 🙂
I won’t be elaborating a lot on the base, as there’s a lot to talk about the color cosmetics. The base makeup has the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation and The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion foundation. Also for all the looks I kept my brows really stark and used the darkest shade from the MUA Brow Kit. It is a dark brown that works pretty well for me.
Hi everyone! Wish you all a very happy and blessed Diwali. You must be at your festive best and so must be your homes. 🙂 I’ve been juggling quite a lot between work, home and my blog. I actually did shoots for two posts in a day. Whew! Kinda exhausting, but I enjoy it so much.
Today I will share with you my favorite lippies for this festive season. I have my favorites from bot high-end and drugstore, and lippies with different textures. Since it’s autumn and festive, most of my favorites are richer hues, but I do have a few subtle neutrals as well. Please note that the list is a random order of my favorites, and it is not in any order of preference. 🙂 Read more
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… 😀
