ISLM Rants: Keeping Busy, HOI and Loads of Pending Reviews


Things That Keep Me Busy and The Stuff I Feel Guilty About!

There is so much going on in my life right now that I am getting no time to even breathe! Honestly! I have keeping so busy at work (major developments), 3 weddings to prepare for, my mom visiting us and of course Handlooms Of India wanting to grow up so damn fast... Its like everything is happening all at once and well I think its ISLM that is taking the brunt of it all. But not for long I promise :) So if you have been missing regular posts on ISLM let me begin by first apologizing and then assuring you all that its just a temporary phase. I promise :)

Where Handlooms Of India is concerned, if you all follow its Facebook page then you'll know that HOI now accepts all major credit and debit cards and you can also pay through Net Banking in addition to the current Bank Transfer method :)
Also, HOI announced its first ever SALE this week and we have been working towards getting more and more products on Sale. Its a huge deal for us because it means that our little baby is finally growing up and growing up real fast :) Amazing isn't it? And we have all of you to thank for it... You guys have been simply amazing! Thank you :)
Additionally, we are preparing an itinerary for HOI related travel that we plan to do this year. I am keeping the list a secret that I plan to unravel gradually as the year proceeds... Its much more fun that way and I can promise you some amazing stuff from a slew of exotic locations...  

Like I mentioned in my earlier post, I have 3 outstation weddings to attend and hence preparing my outfits for all the functions is taking a toll on me especially since my tailor is based out of Bombay and you know I live in Pune! Ha! Talk about complicating matters... I am getting a couple of salwar suits stitched and plan on using the sarees that I have as a part of my trousseau... However I think I need to get some new footwear especially the golden and silver sandal kinds, you know that go with every Indian outfit under the sky... Plus I have earmarked a number of juttis from HOI and a couple of Kolhapuri Chappals too for functions like sangeet and mehendi :) Gosh ghoom phir ke  I come back to talk about HOI only na! I need to stop doing that! It must get onto everyone's nerves really!

With all of this going on in my head and in my life, PR samples that I have been receiving is just piling up like nobody's business. I need to start reviewing them, making videos with them and well actually just start using them! I am currently using this fabulous lipgloss from Lakme, the new Magique kajal from L'Oreal, the 12H Colossal kajal from Maybelline and some hair products from Tresseme and Livon... Just a week more and I promise to have all reviews ready by then :) Amazing stuff I promise...

How have you all been doing? Tell me whats keeping you guys busy and whats new with you all. I do love to hear from everyone, makes me feel happy, blessed and all mushy-mushy :)
I really love you guys! ♥♥♥

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Sexist Remarks We Women Tend To Ignore (But Shouldn't!)
This post has been long due...

Every now and then I come across a sexist remark, sometimes intentional, sometimes not and it makes want to write about it... But life happens, I push the remark to the back burner just the way we are conditioned to in order to prevent a confrontation or more likely to "free" our minds for more "important" things and hence the "writing" never happens...
