March Surprise [I don't really miss the haul :D]

You would have never imagined a gift like this.. okay at least not me ! My school friend [bestie] came down from the US after 2 years and before she left the country she kept asking me if I need anything from there. I was too confused to pick anything. I just sent her a small list at the last minute and almost all products had a minimum of 1 week shipping time and she was about to leave before that. Cursing myself I told 'Might be next time :( ' . Once she reached India she called me to say that she got a gift for me that I would love. I had no idea then that she would exactly know what I wanted !!!!!

Best Gift Ever !

March 2014 Empties (y) !!!

When we think everything is going as per routine and there is nothing that needs some extra attention, then we would have definitely missed something ;) When I was really glad that I was able to empty products every month [at least 4-5],  I would shop without any guilt too. However last month was an exception, I realized there was nothing that I emptied last month ! Which means I never used any product regularly and I have been missing my routine !!! The laziness continued and the below picture is the proof :(

I used to have this habit of saying 'I am a sensible shopaholic' and here is a chance for me to prove the same ! Anyway we are going to spend a lot on cosmetics, clothing, shoes, bags and what not, but when we get a chance to save some amount while shopping why would you miss it? I am not talking about sale but something else. I am talking about cash back while you shop ! Doesn't that sound interesting? Read on to know how cashkaro works and how it would benefit shopaholics like us :)

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 305 Dating Coral : Photos, Review, NOTD

I have been buying nail enamels like never before as if I am going to wear different color every single day ! Don't know what stung me that I have more than half a dozen of favourite brands when it comes to nail enamels and I am still looking out for more options ! Some kind of telepathy worked between me and my sister that she got a pretty nail color from L'Oreal. She actually got two and before she left she changed her mind and took one with her ;)

I am a fan of The Body Shop products and I just said that day before yesterday :p and I am sure I'll keep saying that forever ;) My love for them started when I first tried their body butters and ever since then I go to The Body Shop before every winter to load my bag with their body butters. I have already tried 3-4 body butters from The Body Shop and my recent pick was the Olive Body Butter. It is meant for normal/dry skin and let us see how it worked on me.

New Black Jumpsuit : Outfit

My love for jumpsuits was a long old story and I kept talking about it whenever I talk about shopping, clothing, outfits and Zara. Ya, for some reason I wanted my first jumpsuit from Zara and I kept hunting for the same every time I visited the mall. Nothing worked out - either I didn't like the pattern/print or there were no jumpsuits at all ! Meanwhile my little cousin who came down for her sister's wedding picked up one for me and I will show you how pretty it is :)

Zara Woman Eau De Toilette Roll On : Photos, Review

Zara is a new brand to most of us, I mean Chennaities, before which I never got a chance to try any products from the brand ! Obviously when they opened their huge store here, it was talk of the town. Their clothing attracted me the most when compared to their accessories, shoes and bags. Only recently I saw that they had stacked few fragrances in a place that would easily go unnoticed ! When I had no idea about Zara fragrances, a sweet little girl came to me showing the little fragrance she got from Zara.

Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 2 : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I started my makeup routine with just a gloss and a kajal, like any other girl and ever since then I was inclined more towards gloss than lipsticks ! Not too bright colors and medium glossy finish was always my favorite ! When the whole world was talking about the Maybelline Lip Polishes I don't know what I was doing. One random day until somebody strongly recommended me to try this, it didn't strike me that I am yet to get one for myself. I did my little research online and got 2 shades of Maybelline Lip Polishes in Glam 2 and Glam 9 !

Decluttering and Organizing.. But Why ? !!!

It has been a while since I last cleaned and organized my make up stash and this weekend I decided to do it because I had one strong reason behind it. I know you all are clever and sharp enough to find what it is... While answers pop up in your mind I'll share how I did it. This time I took everything out of the draws and poured them on the floor. Was admiring them just like that and it gave me so much satisfaction :D Of course I locked myself in a room and never allowed anybody inside until I arranged everything back in the draws and I made it look all normal ;)

Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer 68 Khaki Dore : Photos, Review, Swatch & EOTD

I really love olives/khakis for my eyes and the more I love them, the more they are a challenge to make that shade work on my lids ! Either it refuses to show on my lids or I end up blank not knowing how to make the color work for me and justify my purchase. Today I am sharing one such gorgeous shade of eye color from Chanel. It is an olive / khaki green eye pencil and aptly named as Khaki Dore. Also, you can see me struggling with similar gorgeous shades here, here and here !!

Preeti Shenoy : In My Library

You all know that I have started reading all over again.. I mean books, novels, short stories and all I that I used to do a few years back. Being a mom kept me busy until the little one grew up and learnt how to keep herself busy without disturbing mom any more ! So I got my little time back to slouch in the sofa and read a book or just over a cup of coffee in the evenings. Hubby gifted me a book and you would have already read all that sweet story here and now.. guess what he did?

Summer/ Resort 2014 

Mumbai, March,13 2014: JADE by Monica & Karishma's collection for Summer/Resort 2014 symbolizes a quest for true style, fusing elements from the carefree vibe of the 1960s infused with the glamour of the roaring 20s; Ornate beaded embellishment inspired by the 20s’ love for glitter juxtaposed with the voluminous silhouettes of the 60s! There is a subdued nonchalance in combining the best of the two decades in fashion, brought out beautifully through patterns, stylized accents and accelerating modernist pairings. The collection attempts at presenting bohemian in a new avatar, one that shakes itself free from its inherent ethnicity and is relevant for today’s New-Age Woman.

Accessories Love ♥ - Hot Pink Jewellery Organizer

These days online shopping did make our life so easy, especially when it comes to new launches. I find the newly launched products online even before they are available in the stores nearby ! It is definitely more convenient but I really miss something - free gifts. I really missed the cute heart shaped pouch Maybelline gave with their Lip polishes just because I got them online :( So, sometimes it is better to move yourself from the couch and get products from the shop. On one such not-so-lazy day this is what I got with my purchase :D

Colorbar Ultimate Eyeliner 001 Black : Photos, Review, Swatch & EOTD

I never learnt to draw a neat line on my lids with liquid liners and for people like me these sketch-pen like eye liners are a blessing. When I almost gave up on lining my lids neatly, I got to know about these felt tip liners and I started with Lakme first, followed by Maybelline and now got my hands on the Colorbar one :) Each one of them impressed me in the very first try and I just wonder how I could have done my eye make up without these eye liners !

TRESemme Introduces New Split Remedy Range : Press Note

One of the favourite hair care brands of New York’s fashionistas, TRESemmé, has always been driven by a simple truth; every woman deserves to look fabulous as if she has just stepped out of a salon. Recommended by hair stylists all over the world, TRESemmé unveils the secret of split end rescued, salon style hair at home every day with the newTRESemmé Split Remedy Range.

Women often complain of a bad hair day and hide their tresses compromising on style. Split ends, as a matter of fact, may actually be one of the reasons why women experience a bad hair day and hide their tresses. Excessive use of heat styling tools, chemical processing, bleaching and prolonged exposure to sun are known to cause damage and may contribute to split ends.  Most women believe a salon haircut is the solution to get rid of split ends. Unfortunately, it makes one compromise on length as well as hairstyles.

I already spoke a lot about these L'Oreal Shine Caresse lip colors HERE, HERE and HERE and how much I loved them, but then why did I buy one more shade when I already had three with me?

So today's post is not just about the shade Bella but also a brief comparison with the ones that were launched overseas.
