The Liebstar Award

I'm so fond of these blogging awards which are given by fellow bloggers. Still in India blogging is a new thing.  I have lost count of how many people have asked me "what is blogging?". I never get annoyed,  I try to explain them what blogging is. What is blogging? For me blogging means getting a place not only to express but also to share with others. Blogging is sharing. The blogging community of India is growing rapidly and few years later people won't ask us this question anymore. Time will reveal everything.  For now just enjoy life, write, share and find new and interesting bloggers .

October Favourites : Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle and More

October has a big list of favourites so I'll try to keep it as short as possible.  Ready,  steady , GO !!

Diwali Special Makeup

Diwali,  Diwali and finally it's here. I can hear the sound of crackers and some Bollywood music while getting ready.  This is a make up look I'm doing tonight.

It's ok, you can still wear this makeup in a wedding.  So let's get started :)

No More Dating Pigs : Book Takeaway

"Women who fear being alone are most likely to date wrong people."
                 - Norah Marler

Ok, this is probably going to be hard for me to write about this book. But it's a well thought decision to write about the things I'm taking from this book and to include a little bit of my personal life in this post. Only because I want to share the knowledge I gained from this book to you. 
So, guys "No More Dating Pigs" by Norah Marler is a self help book and it gives us the knowledge of wise dating and points out the tendencies to date wrong people and gives solutions to stop that viscous circle of dating "pigs". 

I haven't dated in my life.  Yet I was in relationships.  Yes, it probably sounds weird but guys committed even before spending quality time to know eachother well. It's not we didn't know eachother but to be in a "forever" kind of relationship you need to understand eachother and most importantly you need to understand yourself.  In my case none of these happend before.

Two is Better than One

"So maybe it's true
That I can't live without you.
And maybe two is
Better than one"
- Boys like Girls

And now I (kinda) love these earrings.  They weren't like this before.  They were junkier and heavier and I wore them only once in a house party.

Before the party it looked like this. Too much blue? Too much going on!
But after the party one of them shedded it's blue thingys from the bottom row. And they weren't loved anymore :(

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Expectation !

Do you name things you own?! Like , does your car has a name? Or your pillow! Yes it sounds strange but a lot of people name things they love ( like we give sweet name to our lovers, puchu, kuchi, sweetie,  motu... bla bla ..haha .. shhhhh). I wonder why cosmetic companies name their products?! There can be soo many reasons.  What do you think it is!?

Well our own Lakme has launched 6 matt lip crayons called Lakme Absolute Lip Pout. And these 6 shades has some juicy names as well!!
Pink Fantasy
Magenta Magic
Tangerine Touch
Victorian Rose
Starlet Red
Raving Red

I loveee all their names and the rich colours of these lip pouts are totally pout worthy.  So before buying Lip Pouts I tried them on Lakme's "Lakme Makeup Pro" app. (If you don't have the app just download it from playstore).

Monsoon Brides : Go Pastel

It seems bright colours have taken the backstage in this wedding season.  Brides are going for more subtle colours for either on their D-day or on then reception.  And I'm loving it.  Everyone else as well. It's such a fresh change from the bright reds and pinks. The eye soothing colours are going so well with the rainy season.

Actually all the prominent designers have already showcased their wedding collection and there pastels plays a prominent role. I think we have all noticed how the Bollywood brides are wearing them.

Come on girls get inspired and appreciate :)

She is the talk of the town right now! The trending bride. It's like every girl's dream comes true situation.  Mira Rajput (21 year old college student) gets married to non other than Shahid Kapoor!!!! Ok, take a deep breath and see how beautiful the bride is looking! Mira is wearing an Anamika Khanna lehenga.

Confession of Tanu

2015. I had great expectations from this year when it was brand new. I had planned a lot and was waiting for them to turn into reality.  But 2015 had already planned something different for me I guess. It's June.. well almost the end of it, so half the year is gone and this half year just turned my life upside down.. well for Good :) Yes preliminary heart ache was there but I turned the pain into gold. I am doing what I always wanted to do, to study Fashion.  ♥

Ok, enough of heart to heart talk.  I shared it because I wanted to share the joy of doing something I'm really passionate about [and also to let you know why posts weren't frequent in this blog] . But now I am back for good. This post was planned just after the release of Tanu Weds Manu Returns,  the movie every one should watch.  Generally I don't like to force people about films but this is an exceptionally good movie. It is funny, modern in every sense. It deals with the concepts of love and relationships and of course human psychology.  Everyone is going gaga over Datto/Kusum (kangna's double role) & I get it why. Datto is the independent one, the logical one. I want to be more like her and gradually I am turning into a much more self dependent woman . But.. there is a big "BUT", Tanu is the girl close to my heart. Tanu is the girl who is emotional , who needs adrenaline rush, who needs validation (sometimes), who acts in the heat of emotion. She is an attractive person who loves new emotions. She is a big mess but still lovely. I loved her looks in the film. She is doll like but a doll with a soul.

#spoileralert : I was drawn in by the last look of Tanu when she goes to Manu and Dato's wedding . It is a bright orange look which is essentially a festive look. But she intentionally does that to show that she is just at the edge of breaking down yet she is still strong and hopeful.

Spring - Summer Haul

[ Why a haul post?.. You can easily skip this part within brackets :) In 21st century "haul" is a "thing" which is very popular on Youtube or in the blogging world. But a lot of questions has bee raised against this trend of showing your viewers or readers what you have bought! Some think this kind of posts fuel consumerism.  That's the reason I was hesitant to do a haul post. But then I analysed this trend And came to a wonderful point.
Personally I love haul posts. I realised that I like those videos or posts because I get to know what the stores are offering and where go get it cheaper. The different styles of different people are also interesting to see.  But the main point is : why do people share what they have bought on the Internet? Then I recalled a tradition which is still popular.  There was a time when we new people in our neighbours,  they were like family. Plus our families were larger. So we had more audience to share our happiness. Whenever someone used to buy a saree or a jewellery she would come and show it, and people would happily join in that conversation. But time has changed. There aren't those people to share that joy of getting something in a bargain.  Time has changed and we actually have a larger audience now. So I guess that tradition has revamped itself and has become "haul" !
So can we call "haul" a culture? If yes, then I am into it :) ]

Summer is almost here. Spring is just at its best beautiful self and I have shopped a little bit! This season is the season of bright colours and floral prints and laces for me :) Without wasting any words let's jump into the Spring Summer Haul.

Outing in a Sunny Winter Morning : OOTD

Get out of that room and head straight to a place with the people who matters in your life. Plus in this weather everything will feel blissful :)

Inspiration List : 2015

I know today is the 22nd day of this new year. Some of us already feeling that the year got old and throwing away our 2015 resolutions. For me, it has always been hard to keep those promises made at the beginning of the year. Most of the time I write my goals (very few) in my diary and don't open those pages again , just because I don't remember to do so! But this year I have decided to take a new path. When I wrote down what I want to do or achieve in the new year, I thought for an idea to see them in front of my eyes whenever I want to.
So I took some coloured papers and wrote my goals on different colours! Then I stuck them together and pinned it on the soft board of my bed room.
I am not saying that you should do this too. But it is an easy way to see the list whenever you wish to. Everyday I see the list and mentally do some ticking. I don't follow everything every day though. I try to.:)
This year I have decided to do at least one fruitful thing a day . It is going on pretty well.

Are you keeping up your resolutions? And how do you keep yourself motivated to be simply HAPPY ?
Let me know :)
                                       Love <3

OOTD : Seaside Nostalgia

Yes I am a sea person. If u ask me what I like the most among mountains, forest and sea, I would always chose sea! I don't hate mountains, but through all my childhood we went to the mountains to trek and after some time I really got tired of it. On the other hand we never could go to seasides as my mother has some kind of a sea allergy. Only once we went to the sea, and we had a blast on the beach. I loved being in the water, playing with sand, collecting sea shells. I just loved the activities in the beach.
My poor heart always ached for sea beaches and finally I had decided to visit the sea, Indian Ocean. So one fine day my friends and I hit the road for a trip. This time , I was again amazed by the breathtaking beauty of the sea. We had a little photo session too. This OOTD is created from those pics.

First OOTD : Snow White

I don't know why didn't I do any Outfit of the day before? Today after a sweet little date with Mr.C , I thought about this. This outfit is very very casual. This look can be worn in college too ( if u are feeling a little laid back.) As the outfit was white, I wore a colorful stole, shoes and bright red lips. Oh and a colorful patchwork bag too.

Is winter the season of passion? Then why the world is getting obsessed with red lips! It seems that the trend of red lips is not going away soon! All the top cosmetic brands from L'Oréal to MAC to Lakme are launching ranges of different red lipsticks.

Recently L'Oréal launched Star Pure Red lipsticks.  On the other hand Mac introduced 3 reds in Heirloom Mix Lipstick collection.

After the launch of L'Oréal's range I did a little research (read : downloading pics from Google) and realised that both red lips and red nails are everywhere.  From red carpet to advertisements to films.
So let's dive right into the world of Reds -

The Versatile Blogger Award

Happy Brand New Year to all my friends, readers and fellow bloggers. I know I'm late. I was busy partying and meeting old friends and making goals for 2015. Have you made any bucket lists for this year? Have you made it a point to spread some love? Well, I have.

When I started blogging I was totally alien to this world of blogging. Never thought people will actually read it. And never imagined that after few years of irregular blogging someone will actually nominate me for any kind of awards. So dear Dhanshree it is really a big deal for me to get this award from you. On 9th January Dhanshree Soni from Makeup Beauty and More nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award. I thank her from the bottom of my heart *wink* & love.
