20 Months In Mommyland....



Me: "Baby, say Mommy. Mommm-mmmy. Can you say Mommy?"

Ziizayne: "tuhpaashukarruhkuh..."

Me: "No, baby. Say, Mommmm-mmmmeeeee."

Ziizayne: "kafuhrraratuh...."

Me: "C'mon baby pie, you can say it. Say Mama..."

Ziizayne: "tuhtuheeeyo..."

Me: "Maaaaa......"

Ziizayne: "taotaofuhfuhshuh...."


Me: "Okay, then."


About 10 minutes later:


Me: BABY, NOOOOO!!! HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I TOLD YOU NOT TO STAND ON MY LAPTOP???!!! YOU WANT ME TO SLAP YOU?!!!

Ziizayne: "Mamamamamama....." *Jumps on me, grabs my face &presses his drooly mouth on my cheek* 

Me: "Awwwww....are you saying Mommy? You are so smart, my baby!!!"


******

And that's the only time he ever really said that. He says "Mom-mom", but to my utter disappointment he means his pacifier or sometimes food =D

He can say "Cars" (his obsession) & he tries to say "Shoes",  but no "Mommy". Little bugger.

He is 20 months old today. Yup, a toddler who can't even lie still when I change his diaper! You should see me after his bath time. I always look like I'd just crawled from the Sahara Desert.


Will have to end this post abruptly guys.

We're in Hong Kong at the moment. Wanted to take this one to Disneyland

He watches Lion King, Tangled, Frozen, Wreck It Ralph, from start to finish like he can understand everything, so I hope he'll be thrilled! 

As for me, I didn't pack much from India (not even an eyeshadow palette!) *grins*


Haul?
Disneyland photos?


They're coming. Promise.

LOTD: You Know......?


You know I can't remember the last time I wore blackish smoky eyes?


You know I've stopped wearing bold red & fuchsia lipsticks for a long time?


You know I want to binge read 'The Girl On The Train' before the movie comes out?


You know I get this  strong urge to lie back on the floor at a shopping mall, yoga flap my arms and legs in & out, and shout "THIS IS THE FEELS! I FEELS! I NO CRAZY!"?


You know the top I'm wearing costs less than all the products I'm wearing on my face?

Birthday Confessions & Haul


Today's NOT my birthday. It came & went a week ago, but I couldn't find the time to get this post up then. Now I'm doing the usual should I/shouldn't I post thing.....and then I post it.

Let's start with the good stuff... 

....and you will see I went a lil' crazy with the liquid lipsticks....


Starting from the top, clockwise:

Benefit They're Real Mascara Mini ~ Oh my God! I'm doomed, because I will need the full-sized tube. This mini version is around  Rs.800 & the full sized tube is Rs.2400 or so. It is fantastic - long, fluttery & separated lashes like no other mascara I've tried before. (From Sephora)

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Personal Statement (Shocking Pink), Rich & Restless (Mid tone pinky salmon) & Lady Be Good (Warm Mid-tone Nude) ~ Out of stock. Always out of stock. It's a miracle few shades were restocked on my birthday! 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellisissima (Pale Neutral Pink), Patina (Dusty Rose) & Fiore (Hot Pink) ~ LOVE these! (From Sephora)

Chambor Extreme Wear Transfer Proof Liquid Lipstick in 461 (Coral) & 431 (Red) ~ I like the first one I got #403, so I couldn't resist getting a coral & a red. I think I'm done now ;p

MAC Face & Body Foundation in C2 ~ It's time to try out a MAC Foundation for realz. Another product that was OOS for months! I mean my shade C2.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Mat-Finish & Enhanced Radiance Loose Powder 4 in 1 Harmony ~ My favorite & the most pricey (Rs.4000). This has been on my wishlist since last year. There are 4 powders in this - beige, yellow, peach, bronze. (From Sephora)

Best Makeup Brush Washing Mat


I spied with my little eye this round yellow wafer-textured thingy at a home store, I didn't know what it was. I started thinking....

What's this? Round....silicone...more weighty than I thought...I feel like I need it...Rs.250....yup, I do need it. But for what? Oh, there's a picture on the back! Okay, basically, to keep hot pans and baking dishes. That I don't need. Why don't I bake anymore? Hmmm...put it back in the hook...moving on.... we need a saucepan with a lid for making popcorn...but a light pan, so it's easier to shake-shake- shake....why don't they make enough light or pastel cooking pots and pans in this country??! Also, Floral. Vintage floral, not big big sunflowery jhatak floral. Then I'll spend more time in the kitchen! Like Bree Van de Kamp...I'll bake something French, something I can't pronounce yet... coomberfroofrount...and wear a matching floral apron....and I'll ---- 
MAKEUP BRUSH WASHING MAT!


And I ran back to one of the best things I ever discovered ;p


It's amazing, you guys! I won't have pruned fingers after washing makeup brushes anymore, and I'm actually excited to wash them more often now! Plus, the brushes come out cleaner than when I'm only using my palms.

Brands had come out with gloves and fancy mats for makeup brush washing, but those came with hefty price tags. For me, this mat is best and all I'll ever need!


How I use it: I place it in the sink, let some water fill up in those little squares, squirt some Johnson's baby shampoo, and then swirl my brushes on it. Saves so much time! I also rinse them the same way with just water. After I'm done, I rinse the mat and shake off all the water from it, and place my brushes on it for drying.


Price: Rs.250 / $4 (ONLY)

(Have you seen the Sigma mat for $32?!)

From: Lifestyle Home Centre.

If you can only buy them online, I've searched for similar ones and linked them below:

Rectangular mat ~ here
Square mat ~ here
Round mat (my favs) ~ here




What do you think about this? NEED it or not?


Talk again soon & Happy Friday! =)

The Power Of Mascara....


What's the one thing I'd change about my face?
Eyelashes. 
Everyday I wish I'd wake up one morning with the lashes of my dreams - thick, dark,doll-like. 
But I wake up with pronounced puffy, honey-colored eyes that look jaundice-like without an umbrella of prominent lashes.  
That 13 Going On 30 (movie) wishing dust - I WANT!


Describe my eyelashes in 20 words or less?
They're so thin & nondescript, it's like the split ends from my hair fell down on my lash line. 


How many mascaras am I currently using/trying?
6. I feel I can now stop looking for THE ONE. I feel I can now stick to 1. But I don't know which one.


Mascaras I keep going back to?
1. Maybelline Volum Express the Colossal Mascara ~ It adds length and thickness, but still separates the lashes.
2. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara ~ The first time I tried it, I didn't like it so much. But after a few weeks to a month, when the formula becomes drier and thicker, I was hooked! 
3. Max Factor 2000 Calorie Curved Brush Mascara~ See a post on it here. I'd buy it again, but it's not available here.


How much time do I spend applying my mascara everyday?
3/4th of my total makeup application time. Apply, wiggle....wiggle...wiggle....comb through clumps. Repeat. 4 time. 


Any special techniques?
Of course! I stand in the bathroom and make the Scream (movie) mask face . Bathroom - because there are no fans & air conditioners in there. Air dries up the mascara too fast & ruins the layering process. Scream mask face - to keep the tops of my cheek bones away from the wet wand.


What's the craziest thing I'd do for thicker, longer lashes?
I'd steal them from my own son, who has my dream long, wispy lashes. Itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water....SWAP! I love him so, sooo....much!


Have I considered that surgery where they stitch individual hairs to the eyeli....?
HELL, NO!!! Please. *Shivers*


Have I considered eyelash extensions?
Now that I've been thinking about for quite some time. I'm finally doing it this year. Soon! I can't use mascaras anymore after that, not on extensions.

Meanwhile....
