My Haul from Deepika Designs

My love for earrings started when I was in 12th grade..I remember scouring the lanes of Tulsi Baug, MG Road and FC Road prowling for the prettiest earrings at the most competitive prices…sigh…I miss those days…These days, i simply cant seemto find stuff available to my taste…either the quality doesn’t match the price or the styles are kinda ‘bin there, done that..’ So when I saw Deepika Designs on Facebook early last year, I couldn’t believe my luck! Her designs are just amazing!!!

The Mother of all Hauls 🙂

Hence, since last year, I’ve been buying n buying…and buying some more 🙂 This time however, I got a whole bunch of goodies and thought I sould show them to you…I got 2 large dabbas at work last Friday at work and was over the moon about them…Her designs are so unique and I had the privelidge of gettng some of her exclusive Bday collection pieces..


And as you cansee below, even the packaging was immaculate with every piece tucked into its own plastic wrapper before being placed in the boxes 🙂deepika designs jewellery

NARS Torrid Blush: Review, Swatches

Hi All,

I’ve always been an avid reader (if you’re wondering why I’m mentioning this, read further) & a very rebelious kid. I always did the exact opposite of what I was told. And one of the forbidden things was reading Mills&Boons. My Mom had strictly warned me that I was not to touch them till I was 14…but then, how many Nancy Drews can a girl read , right? And plus, being ‘Forbidden‘ piqued my interest even further and I made a friend get me one of her Moms novels. Well, suffice to say it opened a whole new world of a very different vocabulary…I was suddenly exposed to words like, ‘Sighing, swooning, throbbing and…yes you guessed it..Torrid.’

I recall running to the dictionary to find out the meanings of these words..and mind you I was never this enthusiastic to find out meaning of words in my study books Wink Nevertheless, when I saw this blush on strawberrynet, I was immediately transported back to my childhood where I spent hours giggling with girlfriends over such words. Smile Smile And I simply had to get this…Ah! Childhood memories…If only I knew they would make me buy more makeup when I grew older…. Wink Wink

NARS Blush Gina: Review, Swatches

Hi All,

I’d like to think that each of my blushes have a story to it…other than my insatiable thirst for more blushes that is.. Wink I usually try to jump right in and not bore anyone with the details but then there are some blushes which deserve their story to be told…Sorry, I’m getting too senti over blush aren’t I?

Grey Matter

Hi Everyone!

Remember the 7 NPs I hauled from earlier here? Well, I wanted to try doing some Glitter Gradient nail art and immediately wanted to try silver glitter on grey to see how it looked.

Here’s how the Grey nail polish from Beyu (322) looks alone. I needed 2 coats for it to look completely opaque.beyu 322 grey nail polish review

And here’s my attempt at the glitter gradient. I know, it didn’t come out too well, but I plead ‘First Try’!! 😉 Hopefully I should be able to do better next time…Any tips?beyu grey nail polish + gradient nail art

Maybelline High Shine Colorsensational Lipstick in Plum Shine: Swatches & Review

Maybelline has been going from strength to strength in the past few months and have gained even a greater fan following thanks to their new Dream Liquid foundation, their blushes, swirl liners and the High shine lippies. When A swtched them here, I immediately made up my mind to buy Fruit Punch and Plum shine. They looked so irresistable and I know you’ll agree. Now all I need to cement my love for Maybelline is their colorburst lip balms and the BOUNCY BLUSHESS!!! We can only hope and pray that they think we’re worth it and get it to us atleast now after 1.5yrs of it being released abroad.Maybelline-high-shine-colorsensational-lipstick-plum-shine-review-+-maybelline-cosmetics

The Body Shop Vit E Tinted Moisturiser Review

None of us wear foundation on a daily basis…Atleast i’ve never met anyone who does. Wink And yet we do need that magic product which evens out our skin tones and conceals some of our worst flaws don’t we?

A lot of us swear by the Maybelline BB Cream or the late Pond’s TM. Where Maybelline’s BB cream is The product to use for matte looking skin, Ponds TM was the tube a lot of us reached for for the perfect dewy look. And since Ponds TM has been discontinued, a lot of us have been feeling quite orphaned and left high n dry so to speak. Well, worry not! TBS Vit E TM has swept in to the rescue!the-body-shop-vitamin-E-tinted-moisturizer-review-+-vitamin-E-moisturizer

Ambika Pillai Contour Brush Review

Ambika Pillai brushes have weaned their way onto my vanity. Of all the brushes I have, these AP brushes are the most used ones. I have already reviewed a couple of the brushes from this range and thought of reviewing this after Vish asked about a good contour brush to use, I immediately thought of reviewing this one.Ambika-Pillai-contour-brush-review-+-contouring
