December Makeup Haul


Thought I should pop in here before Christmas just to say, 'Hi, Hello!' *waves with hands tucked inside fleece jumper sleeves*

The fog & freezing temperature here in Gurgaon are giving me a headache.
Either that, or it's my credit card bill this month 🙊

After I did the 'shopping from my own makeup collection', that I blogged about in this post, I just suddenly started craving new makeup, especially palettes & brushes. I headed to Shopper's Stop one evening, hung around the makeup aisles until I could see no more female SA's (meaning: it was after 8 pm, and they'd all left), and I decided that was a sign I should head home too - because they'd be kicking me out soon, not because I'm female 😄
With these....

IKEA India Haul (Decor) ~ My First Time


By popular demand, here's my IKEA Haul, that I did while in Hyderabad.

My first ever visit to an IKEA store. That too, years agter I wrote this post in 2013! So it is a monumental day...haha.
For those who don't know, there's only one IKEA store in India right now.

Firstly, OH MY GOD! It was an overwhelming, one-of-a-kind experience shopping there!
The store was HUGE! So huge, it felt like an industrial factory. 
I read it has a "Cafe", and this cafe is like a food court! You could literally live in the store for days! 😁

I loved the furniture & a lot of heavy things, but sadly we could only pack small things in suitcases.

IKEA could be opening their 2nd store in Gurgaon, which is where I'm at. So....I shall wait.
Maybe, then, I'll move into a brand new house, and fill it with Ikea everything, who knows.

In the meantime, here are the little things I managed to pick up in less than 2 hours.......

When I Shopped From My Own Makeup Collection


Have you seen posts & videos that say, "Shopping My Stash"?

What you do is shop from your drawers & see what useful products you can find,
which you have most likely forgotten about.

I was doing a FLASH SALE on my Instagram & also discarding some old stuff,
in hopes to de-clutter & live a more organised life overall.

And here's all the stuff that I found.....


I was thinking about buying brow stencils, and look what I found! LOOK!
Brow stencils set & more from Too Faced Brow Envy Kit
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon
Mistine Natural Eyeshadow Palette
To define & highlight bows:
 Deborah Milano Extra Pearl Stick Eyeshadow & Tony Moly Panda's Dream Contour Stick

Favourite Baby Beauty Products 2019


Ziizayne is turning 5 years old in less than 10 days, and I'm quite surprised that I have never done a baby beauty post!

There isn't a lot of baby bath/beauty brands here in India, so I seem to rotate among only a few brands. Also, I'm staying away from skincare products that have Parabens.

This year, these baby bath & beauty products are my favourites.....

Handbag Haul ~ BOW Edition


Hello! :)

I have nothing important to say, except that I completed the entire REIGN tv series. It's about the queen of Scotland & queen Elizabeth..... so much drah-ma, and I was hooked to it! 
Now it's over, and I'm feeling as EMPTY as these brand new handbags that reign my world ;p

I've christened only one of them - the black one.

MINISO Haul ~ Everyday Beauty Stuff


Miniso is one store a family can go to, and everyone finds something useful to buy. 
This is my 2nd haul from Miniso, and I have not used the hand towels I got with during my 1st haul over a year ago! What I'm drawn to at their store are the little things, like cotton pads & swabs...and little household items.


Travel Kit Adventure Time Princess Bubblegum, Rs.190

Adventure Time Bath Sponge, Rs.190

Hand Sanitizer Gel (potpourri), Rs.100

Toothbrush set, Rs.190  
This is one from a 3-piece toothbrush set for Ziizayne. I'm using it for my eyebrows ;p

Spunlace Cotton Square Pads (180 pcs), Rs.190 ~ These are better then the Pink Panther ones, in case you've used them.

Cute Pet Hand Towels, Rs.250 each I think ~ My favourites! 
Will use them as face towels too.

100% Cotton Swabs with wooden grip, Rs.150

Lollipop Pink Perfume, Rs.460 ~ I fell for the baby pink bottle.



Have a good week, everyone!

Speak again soon.....

Now Reading : The Prettiest Book I've Ever Seen!


Most times, it's word-of-mouth that sells me a book.

Then, on rare occasions, I see a book at a store, and it just makes me feel something....

It calls out to me......

Not only because the blue on the cover is my favourite shade of blue, btw.

LYN Accessories Brand in Delhi


Last time I was in Bangkok, I chased this brand from one side of the city to another, hoping I’d find a pair of shoes I’d bought some time ago. I didn’t. 
I found out they’d stopped keeping a lot of shoes & were more into handbags. 

Their handbags are amazing! I like almost every design 😍
They are designer quality at 1/4th the price.

Life Without Instagram......


To my Instagram family.......

I miss you too
I'll be back soon.

I deactivated my account for various reasons. 
Mainly for me to not be distracted by the rest of the world (...and nonsense-but-hilarious memes) & spend too much time on my phone.

SELF DISCIPLINE, they say. 

Honestly, I don't miss it at all. I guess it's because I don't really like social media & what it has become lately.
But I miss interacting with my blog readers & other bloggers there in dm's & stories.

My screen time hasn't decreased much tho, because I play Solitaire on my phone now 😄

If I Woke Up As A Man,If All My Makeup Could Talk | WEIRD Q & A


Typing this while watching Money Heist. 
Would I be okay in a hostage situation? Am I capable of robbing 2.4 Billion Euros?
 I pretend to ask myself, when I already know the answers.


Anyway......

One day, when I wasn't feeling well, and needed some distraction, I posted a Questions tag on Instagram : 'ASK ME A WEIRD/RIDICULOUS/EXISTENTIAL QUESTION',
and I'll be answering them in this post. It's been a month since. If you think you procrastinate too much, I'm a reminder that there are worst procrastinators out there.
