Top 10 Favorites This Week

Some things just bring a smile to your face, no matter how crap you're feeling. I thought about getting myself a puppy, but I know I'd be battling with a different kind of 'crap'. Been there, done that. So I figured it's better to find happiness in the things I already have & don't have to toilet train.


Here are my Top 10 Favorite Things this week:
My Yellow Kettle ~ My other electric kettle didn't come on a few days back (I thought it was spoiled but actually it was a trip), so I started using this, which I was saving for special occasions, which never came =D. I like to have yellow things in my kitchen (and wardrobe). It's just such a happy color. I'm looking for a set of cute yellow cups to go with it.


Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream ~ I love this stuff! I finished my first tube & recently my S-I-L gifted it to me. This is great for sensitive skin and when you're prone to seasonal rash breaks. I use this right after shaving too coz it's gentle and fragrance-free.

The Body Shop Facial Buffer ~ Have you got this yet? You really should. First, it's so cheap for a Body Shop! Rs.145 & second, it'll last for a long long time. I use it with my face wash & face scrubs, to thoroughly clean my skin and remove dead skin & blackheads.

Etude House Kissful Lip Pots Sugar Lip Scrub ~ A real lip saver this one. My lips were chapping like crazy this week coz of medication and dehydration, and this was what the only thing that could bring them back to kissable again.

Garnier Aqua Defense Essence ~ Okay, I'm re-loving this again. I picked another jar from KL. It's the BEST! My skin just loves this. It's hydrating without the greasiness. I did a review on the Garnier Aqua Defense range  HERE

IN2IT Cream Blush in Whim ~ IN2IT is one of my favorite drugstore brands now. I picked up this blush in Whim (fab name!). It's a rosy pink cream blush which isn't too creamy and messy. It looks very natural on my cheeks and blends easily in spite of it's hard texture.

Lakme Perfect Radiance Fairness Face Wash ~ I get such a nice glow after using this. It takes off the oiliness and leaves my face looking, well, RADIANT.  *I bought this myself.

MAC Pro 4 Eyeshadow Palette ~ My first MAC palette. Did I tell you I don't like single eyeshadows? I much prefer palettes. Those are Honey Lust & Espresso. You must be wondering about the 2 empties. I wanted Wedge & Shadowy Lady, but they weren't available, so I got confused about my next choices. Haste makes waste, remember? ;)
♥ 

Last, but definitely not the least, here's a gift from Lakme....

A basket of their Fruit Moisture range. Isn't it a looker?! Look at those cute fake fruits! :) So thoughtful of Lakme to send the products in a fruit basket.

That's 9 things, but the Lakme basket allowed me to round up ;0). 
Oh! And another mishap I'd like to share with you all...

The lid of the Honey & Avocado Perfect Day Creme broke in the carton the basket came in. That's all the cream that's left. Those wormy/noodle things are wool by the way...LMAO ;D

Have a great weekend everyone!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
