On My Testing Table: Rimmel London

On My Testing Table: Rimmel London
So I got myself a teeny-tiny micro haul from Rimmel London last week... I wasn't planning to... I went to Pune Central thinking of getting myself the L'Oreal nude magic Foundation when I happened to glance at the Rimmel counter... The SA there smiled so sweetly that I knew I just had to check out some Rimmel products... Ha!

As my Winter break comes to an end and Monday morning dawns, I sit at my desk at work and procrastinate... Then I Procrastinate a little bit more, get myself a cup of steaming hot cappuccino and continue with my procrastination... Well yeah... I really don't want to do anything but what keeps me on my toes (at least figuratively) is the fact that I really need to get a lot of work completed today...

So, its the pati's birthday today and its a no brainer that I have been gorging on the birthday cake since morning... More so because it was baked by Parita (of www.myvanitytreasures.com). Its almost a custom... Every birthday and every anniversary we get Parita to bake and ice a cake for us and its the same cake since past 3 years... She bakes it exactly the same, makes it look exactly the same and it tastes exactly the same... Not a surprise that it is the pati's favorite cake in the world :)

Ok, let me help myself to another slice... *runs to the kitchen to refill her plate*

Winters are here and even though it doesn't really get cold here in Pune, there is a persistent chill in the air and the evenings and nights and get really cold! The late mornings and afternoons on the other hand are beautifully pleasant with the bright sun shining and a chilly breeze blowing...

There are three kinds of people in the world, one with whom we get along with in a snap, the second with whom we want to get along with and we somehow make the friendship work and the third are the ones with whom we just cannot get along with, how much ever we try ... Makeup products are similar...

So last night I went out with a group of my girl friends for dinner... We were meeting up after almost a year and there was a lot of catching up to do... And you know how girls are, we were shrieking in delight, exclaiming loudly, giggling uncontrollably and clicking pictures after pictures much to the chagrin of the other diners in the restaurant...

LOTD: Featuring An Orange Lippy For The First Time on ISLM
If you have been an ISLM reader for a substantial amount of time, then you'd know that I have never ever featured Orange lipstick on ISLM till date... The reason being simply the fact that Orange lipsticks never suited me and hence I have always stayed away from them...

But things change...

While coining the title of this post I almost wrote down 'Pink Blush and *Nude* Lips'... But that wouldn't have been right cause nowadays when we say nude lips we mean lips with a nude shade of lipstick or gloss or something similar...

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Fashion & Style Sensibilities
Guest Post By: Priyanka
Have you ever caught yourself judging another woman’s fashion choices and going, “Man! What was she even thinking when she stepped out of her house? I wouldn’t be caught dead in that!” This happens because the woman most likely thinks that she looks fabulous, you have conflicting style sensibilities and that certainly can’t be helped. For someone grunge fashion looks utterly chic but to another, it might just look like “homeless-du-jour”. Being someone who prizes a sense of individuality, I say, go with what you think works. The world be damned! As Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashion fades but style is eternal.”

So, I am back from my mini-vacation in Delhi and it was a blast... From attending a family wedding to having my first Delhi blogger event to shopping to driving alone (for the first time) on the streets of Delhi to hogging at the food stalls around Jama Masjid to finally getting a whiff of the potent Delhi Winters, it was an amazing trip!
