I Am Beautiful - A Realization - My #KhoobsuratMoment


I Am Beautiful - A Realization - My #KhoobsuratMoment

There are days when I am down in the dumps and nothing can cheer me up. Those are the days when I hate everything about me, I feel fat, I find my skin dull and most of all hate my hair, more so because it is between rebonding sessions and it is half straight and half curly...

Anybody who has gotten their rebonded even once will know the pain :(

So, the other day after I finished my morning chores, I took a bath and looked at myself in the mirror and all I could see was a halo of curly hair around my hair that fell unnaturally straight on my shoulders...


I moved a little and let the sun catch my hair... Aha! My hair looked beautiful all of a sudden!
My half curly, half unnaturally straight hair looked beautiful for a moment! I moved again and this time more sunlight streamed through my hair bringing out the plummy tones, thanks to the recent session of coloring my hair at home. My hair literally glistened!

I felt beautiful again!

Just coloring my hair could have the power to make me feel special on one of the "cribbiest" days is something that amazes me but its the truth!

So I wore some makeup, put on some pretty earrings and took my time with my hair. I twisted it here, I swirled it there, pinned some up and let some down, feeling the texture of my hair through my finger tips. I was glad I had used The L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color and no other brand, since my hair felt soft :)

Finally, I was done with getting ready and looked at myself in the mirror...
I realized to feel beautiful or otherwise is in our hands. And just because something was not looking right did not mean that it overshadowed other good things...
I realized it wasn't about what others said to me or thought about me, it was more about how I felt about myself, and how I made myself feel beautiful.

This was truly a #KhoobsuratMoment for me.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

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…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
