How Amazon India Cheated Me!

How Amazon India Cheated Me!
I like to believe that I am a very mild tempered person and I generally like to give people the benefit of doubt. I mean who doesn't make mistakes, right?

So this year on the 17th of September I celebrated my 30th birthday. Needless to say I was super excited and was quite looking forward to my big 3 "O"... The pati sensing my excitement as well as my "need" for a new personal laptop decided to surprise me with a Mac Book Pro. He ordered it from Amazon and it reached him on the 15th.

Get Ready With Me (GRWM): Neutral & Natural Makeup Look
Very often than not I am tempted to wear a  full face of makeup to work. but everytime I do that I feel conscious, I feel a little too made up for work or worse I feel as if everyone's judging me for wearing makeup. I work in IT and well women in IT in India don't really wear much makeup.
I am not saying that I am judged by my colleagues, they probably don't even realise that I am wearing makeup (I work in a team of only guys and well they really don't realise the difference between concealed and non-concelaed under eyes). But I can't help but feel a little conscious.

Tip Of The Week: Using Oil for Shaving Dry or Sensitive Skin
Fall is officially here. I know it because of the month. My skin knows it because it is starting to get very dry. My skin at the first hint of lack of moisture starts to get itchy, cracked, very dry and I even start to get cuts all over... In this situation hair removal is a bitch!

This post has been long due! I have been wanting to do a makeup post for people who wear spectacles (comme moi!) but it just kept getting shelved mostly due to my laziness... But I have finally decided to get this post out and I hope the spectacle wearing brethren finds it helpful :)

REVIEW: Sleek Makeup Pout Polish in Electro Peach
ISLM Writer: Sanchita
Sleek is one brand that makes me go bankrupt, literally! From eyeshadows to lipsticks – their quality is beyond great. This time I picked up few lip polishes for the winters. These pout relishes are extremely hydrated and nourishing for the lips and enriches the pout for the perfect chic look. So, let’s dig into the details of the pout polish in Electro Peach.

There always is that one thing that can cheer you up instantly... It could be your dog, a cup of hazelnut cappuccino, a loved one, a movie, a song, could be anything... At the risk of sounding vain and shallow let me confess that for me its makeup that is an instant lift-me-up... So nobody is happier than me when a new line of makeup products are launched...
And when they are reasonably priced, my day is just made :)

Saturday is my favorite day of the week... It has the freshness of the start of a weekend and also has the promise of another day after it before the rigmarole of the new week starts... Saturday is when I take a leisurely bath, wear makeup to my heart's content and get ready for a relaxing, aimless day...
