Was MIA and Now I Am Back!





 

ISLM Rants: Was MIA and Now I Am Back!


Hey Guys! I have been Missing In Action since almost a week now and I know you guys have been missing new posts on ISLM. I know I have missed doing posts this past week... So I thought I'd tell you guys whats been keeping me busy this whole week...






We received some new stock for HOI. It needed to be categorized, inventorized, needed photoshoots to be done, pictures edited and finally uploaded onto the site... We couldn't put everything up but did some...








Additionally work's been crazy busy... I have had some really hard deadlines to meet and had been working like a maniac (well almost!)... I had work all day and all night and by Friday evening I was so zombified (no sleep for 72 hours straight) that I just collapsed on my bed after I came back from office... I woke up the next day at 1:00 pm feeling unfresh (still!)...

Then we had to set up this pop-up store for Handlooms Of India on Sunday at Raasta Cafe... So the whole of the Saturday, rather whatever was left of it. was spent in getting stuff ready for it... Getting new tags printed to getting brown bags stamped with our logo to doing inventory...




Sighhhhhh...

I feel exhausted just talking about it all..

We were doing that the whole Saturday night...

Then Sunday dawned early for us as we had to reach the Registrar's office at 7:00 am. The pati and I bought a flat together and the registration was to be done... Once done, we had haul *all* our HOI stuff to the venue and set up the stalls and all the jazz that comes with it...

The whole experience of setting up the pop-up shop was so much fun though... It was the first time we were showcasing our products physically (and not virtually). The adrenaline rush of our first sale, the frustration of someone visiting the stall, admiring stuff but walking away without buying anything, the high of one happy customer getting her friends to buy stuff as well, all of that was just worth the whole hard work that went behind it all...


It was just great!

And then it rained... It was just fantastic... The weather's beautiful all over again, the heat has all disappeared I feel energized all over again :)


The only 2 things that let me look sane and hence feel confident were The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso 2-in-1 Eye Cream and NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer... Thank God for them!

I'll have a beauty posted lined up real soon...
Tell me you guys missed me :)

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 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
