Unboxing The Pretty Box! (What's Inside The Box?)


If you missed it, we played a mystery guessing game "What's Inside The Box?"  HERE. Thank You to everyone who participated, I had fun reading all your guesses! 

LOL-ed at "Underwear" & "Maternity Panty".... hahaha! =D

 Okay, so today I'm finally revealing what's in it! Nobody guessed both the things, but 2 readers got 1 thing right! So, they are the finalists.

The answer is.....

 Cup & Kettle (or Tea Set)


2 readers guessed Cup & Saucer : Shilpa Gandotra & Sonia Rai.

Well done, ladies! =)

I had to shuffle & pick only 1 WINNER, and it is SHILPA GANDOTRA! Congrats!


MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Haul, Photos, Swatches

Most times, you go to MAC specially to check out a collection - All the products you want are SOLD OUT!
Sometimes, you walk into MAC without a purpose - You are greeted by a brand new collection you didn't even know had launched, and most products haven't sold out yet!

I fall in the latter category this time. I wasn't going ga-ga over this collection when it came out, and didn't have a wishlist. But when I ran my fingers over the water droplets....well....

Perfect Liquid Highlighter ~ Affordable & Benefit High Beam Dupe!

Ooh, like Benefit High Beam!
That's my first thought when I chanced on this amazing highlighter ~ Faces Metaliglow Highlighter in shade #02. It's the type of highlighter that you can go overboard with and it still won't make you look like a disco ball - because there are no chunky shiny particles in it. It's just p-e-r-f-e-c-t for every day & every occasion, because it subtly illuminates skin. Really, it was such a pleasant surprise that I liked it A LOT from the very first time it grazed my cheek bones!

How To Use: Apply 3-4 dots on top of your cheekbones, blend them & then dust some loose powder on top. Apply some on your brow bones, nose bridge & cupid's bow too if you want to enhance them.

Faces Metaliglow 02 Swatch ~ I think this shade is called Pink Pearl. It does have a pinkish tint, which disappears when you blend it out.

Best Buys & Bargains Feat. A Makeup/Jewelry Organizer

Hi Everyone! Hope you're all doing good. Where have I been? I took a break from the internet. Detox. I hope my posts this week will make up for the slack these last couple of weeks - starting with this penny-saving post! You know SALE Season is on full swing here in Delhi, and although I haven't specially gone sale shopping yet, I stumbled on a few bargains. These are some of the things that I thought might interest you snazzy lot.....

Inside The Maybelline Insta Glam Box Wedding Edition Red....


I wish there'd be a new RULE for all beauty stores & brands: If a customer buys more than 5 products at once, they should be packed in a special box - like a present. How fun that would be?! The thrill of buying, and then the thrill of 'unboxing' when you get home. Coz everything looks better in a box - even a plain bar of soap! So, you can imagine my excitement when I was opening this orange box.

Maybelline launched 3 types of these wedding boxes ~ Pink, Coral, & Red, all housing 7 products. I will be showing you the contents of the Red one:

How To Make BIG Shoes FIT!


Hello! =)

Just thought I'd quickly share this post here, since I know some of you also go through this problem.

To read full post, please head over to my Shoe Blog: CZloves HERE




How To Make BIG Shoes FIT small feet

My Feet Size: UK 2-2.5.

Yes, they're tiny, but the problem that adds to my shoe woes is the fact that my feet are also thin and flat-ish - there's not much flesh between my soles and arch of foot. I think if they were thicker, I wouldn't have so much heartache in shoe stores.

Okay, so here's what I do when it looks like I'm a kid trying on grown-ups' shoes......

LOTD: PINK Everything Feat. NYX Addis Ababa

The title looks like some trance song, no?
 But it just about Pinkness today. It felt really good indulging in pink again - after I outgrew it a little bit for a while, because of mint green!

Speaking of pink, I have a story for you. A true story. I know this man.
Man fell down. Either he slipped or fell off a stepladder.
(I forgot how exactly after I heard the punchline.)
He was in agony, so he was rushed to a hospital.
The doctors/nurses confirmed that man had dislocated (or fractured) his hip.
So they had to take off his pants. Obviously.
To everyone's amusement, man was wearing pink floral panties.
His wife's!


Okay, let's not judge the poor guy. Maybe he just ran out of clean underwear.

Beauty Haul ~ Sephora, NYX, Maybelline, Etc

Hey, Everyone! Hope you're having a good week so far. It looks like July is going to be a haul month. SALES are starting very soon everywhere, so keep your monies safe for now. No clothes and accessories till you see that 50% OFF poster. I've made the mistake of buying clothes that were put up on sale only 5 days later before. Not a good feeling! That's why when I was at a mall last week, I stayed away from all my favorite fashion destinations. I just went to beauty stores - where nothing ever goes on sale!
My last stop was Sephora, specially to get one brush that I'd seen last time I was at the store.......
