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.

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…

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 of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…
