(Kinda) Introducing Ms.Dessert Diva

Hi All !

Anyone who ever reads Wiseshe or is on Twitter would know what a huge foodie I am. Any topic invariably leads to food. The chocolatey shade of a lipstick, the strawberry nail art, etc, every single thing reminds me of desserts and I end up craving them. I usually try to control the temptaion but now God has sent me a Fairy(kinda literally) in the form of Parita (Pari to me) who is my personal ‘Sweet-Tooth Fairy’ πŸ˜‰ParitasWorldHeader1-1

She has her own blog called Parita’s Kitchen wherein she posts her yummy rcipes and puts up drool-worthy pics of all that sheer yumminess. And plus! She has also started her own dessert business form home called ‘CakeWalk’..Cool right? I have deemed her as the cool IT profession by day and the Desssert Diva by night!

About a month back we got to chatting and realised that we’re practicallyneighbours…Yes…NEIGHBOURS!!! and we had no idea! How cool is that? So this proximity led to its natural consclusion of me asking her to get me a Chocolate Almond Cake last week πŸ™‚

Sweet as she is, she dropped off the cake at my place at about 6pm last Friday evening. it looked so yummm! And yes, I ripped open the box as soon as she gave it to me. I didn’t even wait for her to leave! πŸ˜‰ She left after about 30 mins of chattting and girl talk. My Hubs was also home by then. Believe you me, withing 5mins of his entering the house, we were hogging a slice each.Parita_ cakewalk

That Friday night, by the time we went o sleep, we had each gobbled up 3 slices of the cake. It was sooooo yummy!

I am a die hard chocolate lover and this was like a treat for me! And I have to stress an important point that my Hubs doesn’t usually like chocolate. He dislikes them and any other excessively sweet dishes. In fact, he hates chocolate cakes as well and after a slice, never looks at it again. But I was amazed at how he reacted to Pari’s cake. He loved it! Throughout the weekend, he was asking for it and that coupled with my insatiable love for chocolates resulted in the cake getting over by Sunday night….Yes girls…That huge cake u see?? All gone within 2.5days πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚Chocolate almond cake + choco

And just last evening, after dinner, my hubs turned to me asked, ‘Wo Pari-wala cake de na??’ Hahaaa!!! But Alas! It was over but the point I want to stress here is that this cake was so yummy that even my Hubs, who hates chocolates loved it!

So all those of you from Pune…Hear! Hear! If you want a yummy cake for any occasion- A Bday or a get together! Or even just a couple of cupcakes for a rendezvouz planned with your pals…Or even just a tea cake to complete that afternoon snack…Pari is the gal for you. She’s got Magic Hands and is a whizz with cakes and pastries. Anytime you’re here, don’t miss the opportunity to try out one of her desserts.cake + chocolate + almond

I’m linking her Menu here wherein you can check out the yummies she’s offering. Just try it out! Every single morsel is designed to numb your senses and melt them into a puddle of sheer love!

 

Luv,

Want a Mint???

In my previous post you read about the GOSH nail polishes I got through Kejal (or rather her husband). And since I’ve been ordered by the Tweet-Clan, here i am with the swatches for the GOSH nail polish in MISS MINTY.

GOSH nail polish+ miss minty review

It’s a pastel Baby Blue shade with a touch of turquoise and I love this! It goes on neatly sans streaks which is amazing since I’ve hardly come across pastels which don’t streak πŸ™‚ Plus, I am crazy about such cream finishes and these days I’m always on the look out for such NPs πŸ™‚

I also tried some nail art. Nothing complicated…just a butterfly sticker and diagonal dots in a deep green shade.

Oh-My-GOSH!!!

It’s amazing how we meet friends and cultivate friendships these days..If 2yrs earlier, someone had told me that I’d meet people on a blog and actually continue a friendship with them I’d have given them a funny look. But now it’s a whole new ball game. Thanks to blogs and social network sites (read Twitter), it’s become so easy to meet like-minded people and this has turned out to be a boon for me.

First it was Rashmi from Indyabeauty and the Anamika from Wiseshe with whom I formed a bond with. This was about 1.2yrs back. and I never looked back. One of the friends I made through blogging is Kejal Shah from NailartandThings. A pro at Nail Art, Kejal is the person who has promoted me from an exclusive makeup lover to a nail art fanaticΒ as well! Yes Kej, I’m blaming you again πŸ˜‰

 

She has been my Nail Guru for quite a while and she’s the gal I ping on my Blackberry whenever I have a Nail-art related query. About a week back when her Hubby went for a short trip abroad, she asked whether I wanted any GOSH nail polishes. Could i say no? πŸ˜‰ I immediately hunted online on my cell and gave her 3 shades I was interested in and she ensured I got them! Β I got my parcel from her today and had the shock of my life!!! I’d expected just the 3 nail polishes but what i received was a truckload of nail art goodies!

 

Here are some pics of the GOSH nail polishes. I got the shades: Gasoline, Miss Minty & Ocean.

Aren’t they gorgeous????

She also send these butterfly nail art stickers and 2 sets of decals along with a cuticle oil pen.

After discussing on Twitter at length with Emm (Circular Insanity) and Nirah (Present Perfect) about these, I was genuinely curious to know what these were like. Thanks to Kej, I am on my way to being enlightened! πŸ˜‰

 

And last but not least, she also sent me 2 amazing CH nail polishes which have the most amazing texture and finish. They are shimmery but look matte… cool right??

I was having a really bad week at work and I’d like to say a BBBIIIGGG Thanks to Kej for kicking all the negativity of this week into oblivion with this gesture of hers. Kisses!!

Love,

Z

Blissful BEYU!

If anyone had told me 1 year back that I’d be going bonkers for nail polishes, I’d have smirked and laughed at their ridiculous prediction. Rather, I’d have them certified and thrown into a padded cell! But then something happened (imagine thunder n lightening) and this girl walked in from the fog (more like smog considering our pollution rates) and nothing was ever the same for me again..beyu nailpolish

Incase none of you have guessed, it was Kejal from Nailartandthings. She painted her way into my life and turned me into a nail-maniac. And how can I forget Emm from Circular Insanity and Nee from PresentPerfect who keep taunting and tempting me on Twitter with talks of different NPs and gumdrops and Happi’s!!! Β So it really can’t be a surprise that in a fit of sheer lust, I grabbed 7 Beyu Nail Polishes from MedplusBeauty.com.beyu nail polish

These Nail Polishes come in a variety of shades and cost INR249 but are currently available for INR 149.4 each…cool right? You can check out the shades here. I find it weird and irritating that the shades only have numbers and no names…Why do brands do this??? Whats the logic?? If they can’t name shades, just give us the samples! We’ll help…for free πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

I got shade numbers (L to R):

BEYU NAIL LACQUER 318 Black Creme
BEYU NAIL LACQUER 322 Concrete Grey Creme
BEYU NAIL LACQUER 309 Deep chocolate with a tinge of red (Creme)
BEYU NAIL LACQUER 154 DEEP CARMINE (Creme)
BEYU NAIL LACQUER 156 Duochrome Skin Coral
BEYU NAIL LACQUER 264 Pearly Rose Pink
BEYU NAIL LACQUER 373 Pearly White with a tinge of Pink

The bottles are kinda small (8ml) and here’s how they compare with other NPs in terms of size. I don’t mind though since I get tired of the same colors and this quite suites my Get-Bored-Soon attitude.beyu nail paint

So, I got these 2 days after placing my order and I find this really cool. I have shopped from MedplusBeauty and couple of times and they have never disappointed me ever! You guys rock!!

πŸ™‚

Swatches will be coming soon!! So stay tuned!
