October 2013 Haul - 5 products < Rs.500 !

If you have a deja vu of having seen this pic already, it is not a deja vu but I did a post on what I picked up in the beginning of this month and it is the same as this one. I am really disappointed with this month's haul and I am sure even you'll be. I was busy shopping for Diwali and the little one's birthday that I didn't have the craving to shop more for myself :D Might be next month I will come up with more products in my haul posts :P I shall write a little about the products I got this month and then will directly go the accounting part ;) Though the haul didn't make me very happy, the accounts were very satisfying this time !!

What are you wearing this Diwali? : Outfit

Diwali /Deepavali is just around the corner and I am sure most of you would have done your shopping by now. Even I have :) 

Diwali is one the festivals we celebrate really grand in our family. It might be because of the fact that our ancestors come from the place [Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu ] which is the main hub for crackers manufacturing or it might just be the family tradition !! We actually don't know the reason but every Diwali is celebrated really really well with my sister, cousins and friends at our place. This Diwali is not an exception too ! 

I end up spending a lot on clothes for Diwali, however this year I wanted to keep it simple as I hardly wear all these traditional clothes more than once. 

Today I am sharing the pics of the anarakali suit I got for Diwali as I am loving it to bits :D

October Empties !

As we near the month end, it reminds me of two things, one is a haul post and next would be the empties post. As much as I enjoy doing a haul post I get satisfied and happy doing the empties post. I feel there is no point in just stocking up all the products and it is important that we use them for the money spent on them ! So my only intention of doing these empties post is to motivate all my readers to use up the products they buy and at the same time give you a brief idea about the products I have emptied so far !

Maybelline Colorama Cremoso Nail Enamel Absinto : Photos, Review, NOTD

My love for nail enamels are growing day by day that I am thinking of buying some good nail art tools and try all those pretty looking nail art soon. Though I have a good amount of nail colors from Maybelline, every time I see a new color I feel I should get it. Since I already know about the quality of Maybelline nail enamels I do not hesitate to pick them up if I like the colors. There are always a couple of shades in my wish list and today I am reviewing one such shade which was in my wishlist for a very long time. I almost gave up looking for it and that is when I came across this subtle pastel mint color called Absinto !

FoodPanda - A blessing for Foodies !

If you are following me in Instagram you would by now know what a foodie I am. I love different cuisines and I like trying new restaurants every now and then. Same with my hubby too! He travels often and he recently shared his experience about Online Shopping - this time it is not clothes, bags or shoes but food ! That is when I had heard about Food Panda and so when hubby said he ordered his food online, without any doubt I asked him if it was from FoodPanda and he gladly nodded. Today I will be talking about this amazing website which makes ordering food so easy-peasy !

Lotus Herbals Purestay Long Lasting Lip Color Rose Mary : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

Lotus Cosmetics launched their Purestay range and it was hard for me to find them at stores here. I had to wait really long to get hold of their products. Lotus announced some sale only on their purestay range and I decided to buy them online from their own website. More than anything the lipstick that came with a satin pouch was really tempting, so I ordered the lipstick in the shade Rose Mary which seemed to be really popular along with a lip gloss which is already reviewed HERE.

Escada Cherry In The Air Eau De Toilette : Photos, Review, Notes

Escada fragrances are quite new in my perfume collection and I am quite enjoying it ! The brand is totally new to me and I have heard a little about them from my friends and relatives. It is only when a few of them suggested me to try Escada perfumes I realized that I haven't tried anything from the brand at all. Whenever I remember seeing them in the counters all I could recollect was simple but pretty looking bottles in interesting colors. When I heard the name 'Cherry In The Air', I became even more curious :)

Accessorize Intense Color Lip Gloss Shade 3 Fever : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I picked up a couple of lip products from Accessorize online just for the vintage-y packaging and nothing else ! Thank God the lipstick turned out to be super duper pretty and you can see the detailed review HERE. I can't expect the same from the gloss but I have to admit that the lipstick experience did set my expectation level a bit high !! Being a gloss person I couldn't just stop with the lipstick. Also, I couldn't pick them from the same color family as the availability was very limited online !

A Little Shopping at Zara !

I was waiting for months together for Zara to open in Chennai ! Every time I go to the mall I would rush to see if it is open yet and one day finally I heard from my friend that they are open. I couldn't wait to see the collection. Unfortunately something or the other came up and I didn't get chance to visit the mall at all. Then, during a casual conversation with my bestie she told me she visited the store and she liked the kids section the best ! Without any much plans and bag full of money I headed to the store finally.

Face Scrub for a Younger Skin : DIY

So far all the DIYs I shared have been used by me for years together where as the one I will be sharing today is a recent addiction. I have been using this scrub for the past couple of months and having seen some great change in my skin I thought I should share it with you all girls here. As with all my DIYs, this one is pretty simple too but the difference it shows on your skin is enormous ! I use this scrub once a week and sometimes even twice a week. As I started with this I inclined more towards scrubbing my face regularly !

Halloween and Dark Lipsticks, Does this have something to do with? : Swatch, LOTD

When you see a really dark lipstick, say a dark brown / chocolate brown / black lipstick [ya all these shades are available in the market !!] what would your mind voice say?

When Halloween is just a couple of weeks away there came a surprise for me ! Read on to know about it.

Accessories Love ♥ - My New Wallet

Which girl doesn't love a wallet ? I really love collecting wallets so that I can keep changing them often. Recently I have been seeing ads of wallets everywhere and this particular wallet grabbed my attention. The outer cover had pics of cutely dressed trendy girls and each wallet had a different style in it. I loved the idea and I had to pick one that looks / feels close to my style. Online shopping made it even more convenient for me to pick one within a day or two !

How to deal with an MUA / SA : Open Talk

Do you actually take some time and prepare yourself a bit before shopping? 

I do ! 

Having so many shopping malls to choose from, the one with my favorite brands comes first and the next thing would be the Sales Associates [SA] or Make Up Artists [MUA]. The more comfortable I am with an SA the more frequent and more happy I would be to go to that mall. A MUA from a luxury brand has always been very sweet and I meet her whenever I go to the mall. During one such meeting we had a long discussion about the general attitude of SAs and MUAs and I would like to talk about it a little here today.

Christian Dior DiorShow Powder Backstage Makeup 002 Rose Girly / Girly Pink Loose Powder : Photos, Review, Swatch

The brand Dior has always fascinated me and more than cosmetics I know about their sun glass. I have got a couple of sun glass from them and this powder came as a gift from hubby while travelling in a flight. Yes, this was a purchase made in the flight ! When I was browsing through their catalog nothing impressed me as much as this powder which could serve as a blush too. Obviously I couldn't test it before buying but I was so happy to get hold of this luxury power from Dior.

Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint by Barry M in Pomegranate : Photos, Review, NOTD

Most of you would have heard about the brand Barry M, if you have not then don't worry as even I am very new to the brand. I came to know about it only when my friend gifted me this gelly nail paint by Barry M. I had no expectations before trying this out but I googled a bit to know about the brand and their products. I was stunned to see some amazing colors and this pomegranate was one among them. Thank You so much Supria for choosing such a pretty shade for me. Thank you so so much ♥.

Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil 02 Cocobar : Photos, Review, Swatch & EOTD

The easiest way to brighten up a dull day is by lining your eyes with a different color other than black. There are so many brands that offer amazing eye pencils in different colors. I am still stuck to the colorbar ones as their formula totally impressed me. Also the shades they have on offer are really bright and vibrant. I so love their Electra and Prunella and so do many of you ! Today I will be writing about this subtle yet amazing brown shade called Cocobar, which is again a popular shade.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamels 015 Nude Skin, 102 Porcelain Party, 221 Buried Treasure : Photos, Review, NOTD

Ever since I saw the Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamels I badly wanted to try them and when I knew they are going to be launched in India with a super cheap price tag I couldn't wait for October. The very first week of October I started hunting for these and a couple of Health & Glow didn't have them in stock. The third shop I tried has these and I gave this sigh of relief !! I initially planned to buy just two but was tempted to buy four and ended up buying three shades.

I had to pick these !

My last month haul was not so huge [not-money wise ;)] and I always love to see a lot of products in my haul post. So I badly wanted to pick some stuff as soon as the month began ! Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamels were creating the buzz every where and it went straight in to my shopping list. My best friend suggested me to try the Palmolive Shower Gel that she loves a lot and finally I had to pick up a bb/cc cream to see at least if this one works on me ! There are a lot more products in the list however I just picked a few of them for now.

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm 30 Peach Kiss : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I have been reviewing the bunch of Maybelline Lip Balms one by one that my sister got for me from United States. I so loved the packaging that I wanted the US version badly and she got me all 6 variants that were launched then. I heard they have come up with a new set of lip balms too ! Nope, I am not planning to buy them at least until I finish using these, which might never happen at all !! Today I am reviewing the third lip balm from the bunch called Peach Kiss.

Know Your Shoes Better : Read, Love, Share / Fashion

I love shoes and I am a hoarder too !! Though I have limited my collection now I always go crazy seeing different shoes at the mall. Especially high heels just makes me freeze and people near me have to literally drag me from the place. Recently I have been seeing a lot of posters / pictures on different types of shoes in facebook and I learnt quite a lot from such posters. I just knew pumps, boots, wedges, heels, platforms and flip flops until I saw these. Since they were really interesting I thought of sharing it here with you all.

Accessorize Lipstick Head Over Heels Shade 4 : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

Anything pretty / vintage-y / cute / different / unique / unusual [not ugly] my eyes and hands go for it without any hesitation. Ever since I saw the Accessorize lipsticks I was dying to try them just for the packaging and how cute and vintage-y it looked ! I was not too sure about the shades but a red shade was a safe bet when I saw the shades online. Also I do not have many reds [You can see that HERE] so thought I can add one more to the small collection I already had. I feel this one makes my collection pretty and interesting.

Forest Essentials Mashobra Honey & Vanilla Hair Conditioner : Photos, Review, Swatch

You would have already read the detailed review of the hair cleanser yesterday and today I will be reviewing the conditioner that is from the same Mashobra Honey & Vanilla range. It feels nice when you use a mild cleanser and conditioner for your hair but then your hair should be in a good condition. Since my hair is badly damaged and I need really good conditioners to combat the super frizzy hair. I am still hunting for a good conditioner which would help my hair and give some shine.

Forest Essentials Mashobra Honey & Vanilla Hair Cleanser : Photos, Review, Swatch

I always used a mild shampoo for my hair and a conditioner that comes along until I started straightening my hair ! After which I blindly followed the salon's advice and used the shampoo and conditioners given by them. I did maintain my hair well in spite of harsh chemical treatments by going to regular spa sessions. It stuck me really late that I have to save my hair from all chemicals and thus stopped straightening my hair last year. Given my hair a break, it looks really pathetic and I was left confused on what to use for my hair. Forest Essentials hair oil [Reviewed HERE] came to my rescue then and the faith gained on the brand made me give their hair cleansers and conditioners a try.
