August 2012 Haul - More than what I planned !!

This month I spent the max for my hair than ever before. Well, I didn't get a new hair cut or style but my hair went through a very bad phase and I had to undergo some treatment which had other side effects too !! So again to deal with the side effects I had to buy few more products !!! My hair is still recovering :(  Apart from this I also did some good shopping at TBS, INC.5 and H&G :D 

Few of the products I got :) Lil more to see..

Victoria's Secret True Escape Body Wash Review

I have tried a couple of [or might be even more] body wash from Victoria's Secret and each one is unique and amazing in its own way. The recent one my sis got for me is the 'True Escape' one with solar jasmine and pomelo. This comes in a green and purple packaging and claims to have Aloe Vera and Vitamin E in it.

The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Eau De Parfum Review

Being a perfume lover I like to try all kinds of fragrance. Though I initially preferred fresh and fruity notes, I am trying even the musky ones lately. I just wear them according to the season and occasion. Will do a separate post on perfumes in general, which I have been wanting to do since I started this blog !! For today, I am reviewing my 2nd fragrance from TBS - White Musk Libertine.

Bourjois Eau De Gloss 17 Rose Vitamine Review, Swatch & LOTD

You all know I love gloss and the brand Bourjois so much. When my favorite brand came up with a differently packed gloss I couldn't stop myself from trying it. I got this by just seeing the packaging, for some reason it reminded me the pipette we used in our chem labs :) A cute gloss-filled pipette in this case ;)

INGLOT Eye Shadow Pearl 426 Review, Swatch & EOTD

INGLOT Freedom System Eye shadows are as amazing and affordable as their lipsticks are. I got a 5 palette and I had to either choose 3 lipsticks and 2 eye shadows or 3 eye shadows and 2 lipsticks and it was so hard for me to decide. Since I am still learning eye makeup I thought I shall get 3 lipsticks and 2 eye shadows only.

ZIA - an amazing boutique in Chennai !!

I know I am posting this late but I wanted to make sure all you girls should know about the new boutique I visited today. The boutique has amazing collection and I am sure I'll be going there frequently.



My school mate Issa, who is now Dr.Issa Fathima Jasmine.M [so many changes over years !!] has started this new boutique in Adyar, Chennai. She had sent me an invite to visit the store for the inauguration this morning. 

"After months in making, and loads of anticipation, revealing ZIA, the incarnation of my dreams..., a boutique one-stop ethnic galore. 
Opening this Sunday @ Adyar. 
Inviting all you best men and women in the town to come and partake in the Grand Opening! 

Address:

ZIA
Old No.67, New No.42,
Venkatarathinam Nagar,
Adyar, Chennai - 600 020.
Ph: 044- 4360 5070
Email: info@ziaethnic.com
Website: www.ziaethnic.com"

Inspite of  my health being a little bad I somehow managed to be there, but a bit late :p 

The interiors were mind blowing that I kept staring at the walls and decor after I stopped staring at the clothes ;) The collection includes sarees, lehangas, salwars, artifacts, etc. Every single piece has been hand-picked by her and she calls the store her second baby. Do check out the website to get an idea. The colors are so vibrant, I have already asked her to hold few items for me :D

Accessories Love ♥ - Make Up Organizer

I can't sleep when things are messy around me. Say, if there is a bit of paper lying on the floor and I am too lazy to pick it up and a tiring day makes me fall asleep quickly - all my dreams would be about the paper lying on the floor !! So better I clean it rather than having a disturbed sleep ;)

Same with my makeup, I always wanted to organize my makeup properly but never got time and patience until I saw other bloggers organizing their makeup and tagging each other. This was a real motivation for me and that is when I bought this pretty organizer for my make up stuffs.

Vichy Normaderm Night Anti-Imperfection + Rejuvenating Care Review

Vichy was a brand which never got my attention or rather I never felt like trying anything from them until Varshini suggested me to try their night cream. I never used any night creams until then but Varshini stressed me to try it and I am glad I did. Thank You Varshini :) This cream claims to reduce imperfections, smooth skin and restore luminosity !

Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Heavenly Angel Touch Lotion Review

Unlike me, my sister loves musky and strong fragrances. She was raving about this particular fragrance from Victoria's Secret that I had asked her to get one for me. She got the body lotion instead of the fragrance and no wonder it had a musky smell to it. Glad it was not too strong for me and I started using the body lotion - 'Angel Touch Lotion' pretty soon.
