Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Fashion & Style Sensibilities







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.”







We have numerous blogs, news agencies and publications dedicated to fashion, and why is that? Because the fashion world is so darn confusing and ginormous that one does need to have a general guideline to even figure out what their own style is! Enormously helpful though they might be I am sometimes flabbergasted with the sheer number of categories that they have. I mean, why does one require a kid’s section? Can’t we just dress them up cutely and go our merry way? Then I realised that this is another con of popular media, we have gotten extremely conscious about everything we wear. Kids like Suri Cruise, Shiloh and Blue Ivy have made us realise that we were exceptionally unfashionable kids! Needless to say, parents of today are not doing the same mistakes we did and dropping huge chunks of cash for making their little darlings look fabulous. While looking for Crayola Crayons for a DIY Crayon Lipstick tutorial, I happened to chance upon this gem of a website that should certainly be on the radar of young parents everywhere. Deals like this, sure are a godsend!


In this age of fabulous street fashion, even mere mortals aren’t spared by the fashion police; one can only wonder about the plight of celebrities. Unfortunately, it becomes quite hard to keep updating one’s wardrobe and that’s where websites dedicated to discount coupons come in handy. Having used them a bazillion times before I can honestly say that they are a huge rear end saver! Especially when discount festivals like this happen, one can surely stock up for the rest of the season!

Happy Shopping, ISLM readers!

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.
