Makeup When You Look DRAB

You know that "Pregnancy Glow" you keep hearing about? Well, not every knocked up woman gets to wear it like a halo. Most days, I feel like a lazy kangaroo with lacklustre waist-length hair. I'm too tired to prettify myself, and I've developed a habit of doing my makeup halfway too - BB cream, powder, a bit of brown eyeshadow on the crease....okay, that's it.
On this particular day, I made an effort to brighten myself (and mood) up. I'll jot down a few mini tips, and I hope my 'baby brain' will still translate my thoughts into words that make sense.

Michael Kors Glam Jasmine Perfume

I have a vivid childhood memory. One of my favorite things to do when I was a kid was, pluck jasmine flowers whenever I see them. I'm trying to recall from where exactly, but I just can't at the moment. Chances are, my act could have easily been classified as theft or vandalism, and I might have unknowingly made a few jasmine plant owners very very angry. Anyways.... I used to pluck them .... picked the petals, one-by-one .... rolled them between my hands until the white petals became brownish and damp .... shook the poor things off my hands .... and then .... the climactic moment - smelled my hands. Mmm......
Michael Kors Glam Jasmine Perfume smells almost like that, except it's slightly embellished and has more depth. It's not a light & airy floral scent, but at the same time it's not too strong & musky. It's simply feminine ~ like a flowy pastel pink strapless dress with minimal gold accessories.
Now let's talk packaging, as always: It's a simple glass bottle, but the gold cap with metal rivets detailing is e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g! It's like those plain handbags that somehow always look expensive. The more I look at the bottle, the more I fancy it. Even Michael Kors Nail Polishes have the same packaging. So cute! ♥_♥
About: GLAM JASMINE gives center stage to Kors’ beloved floral note, jasmine, while warm woodsy notes and sparkling citrus are less prominent. The GLAM collection embodies the woman who amplifies her evening with color-concentrated looks in rich, deep hues like plum and berry. The fragrance, like the fashion statement, is overtly feminine, designed for a woman who likes turning heads.
Key Notes: Jasmine, Cassis, Sandalwood.

Cheap & Awesome Makeup Drawer Organizers


How much are you willing to pay for 1 drawer organizer (be it acrylic or plastic)?

Me, no more than Rs.100. Especially when I'd need more than 5.

Which is why I was over the moon when I got these for Rs.50 ($0.8) each! 

I picked up only 4 of them first to test how they'd fit in my drawer. They're perfect, and I needed 10 more for two drawers. 7 in each. I went back to the shop, but they weren't available at the time. 

I got 2 white & 2 grey, coz I wasn't sure which color I wanted. Now I know I want only white.

Other available colors: Black, Pink, Purple, etc.

Bigger sizes are also available in the same design.

Eyelash Extensions, Anyone?


I had a plan when I was staying above Select City Walk Mall 2 weeks ago - during our mini Babymoon vacay:

I'll go to the Eyelash Extensions Salon right after breakfast, as soon as it opens. 
Puffy eyes....
Absolutely no makeup....
I'll wear goggles sunglasses.
Inside the mall?
Yes, so what?!
Maybe I'll tie a scarf on my head.


I'd googled and found out there is a place that does Eyelash Extensions here in Delhi......

Jewelry/Accessories Haul ~ Forever 21, Accessorize, Claire's, Forever New, Etc


It's SALE time.
You find something you really like at 50% OFF.
It fits perfectly and/or it's looks very very nice.
You feel so lucky!
Just like when you find money you'd forgotten about in your jeans pocket.
As you're standing in the queue to the cash counter,
Not only are you grinning (creepily, if you're being watched),
You're also thinking: 'I could win a award for Best Bargain Shopper! Ooh....maybe I should turn it into a career! Ya, lazy people will pay me to go shoppi.....Oh, my turn!'
You take out your wallet to pay for the greatness that, at this point, you'd scratch people for if they tried to snatch it from you! (Meow!)
The cashier says a number that's not the same one in your head.
A smaller number.
Waitaminute....huh? 
It's actually 70% OFF! 
They must've forgotten to change the sticker on the tag.
Now you're shaking a little bit,
 and all of your teeth want to come out and ogle at the cashier.
But you warn yourself.....
'Be cool.' 

*****

That, ladies & gentlemen, has happened to me twice.  

First time: At Lipsy in Glasgow last December - I thought I had to pay £20 (Rs.2000) for a top, but the price was £12 (Rs.1200)

 Second time: At Claire's recently with a not-so-expensive hairband, but still.

On to the haul.....

Forever 21 Chandelier Earrings, Rs.409 ~ Why 2 pairs? One pair is for the winner of the "What's In The Box" Contest =)

Forever 21 Romantic Duster Earrings, 539.
