2013 New Year's Eve Look...

I am still not getting the new year vibe as yet... Maybe cause it's really NOT COLD here in Pune... Or maybe because I had 31st Dec as well as 1st Jan working... Or maybe because I still remember Nirbhaya...
Honestly speaking we had nothing planned for the NYE... We just thought we'll have a bunch of friends over, have some drinks at home and then head out for a nice dinner past midnight... But then some of our friends found this fabulous place just close to where we all stay and so we girls all decked up and headed out :)

Since everything was planned so suddenly, I really didn't get to click a lot of pictures and whatever I did click are on my phone and my phone needs an OS upgrade so do bear with me about the lack of pictures here :P

Here are some pictures...

What To Wear: To Office When There Is No Dress Code...

After I have collated all your feedback, I will be starting some new sections on your recommendation... Let me start with Pranali's... She wants me to start with "What To Wear To Work" posts and well here is the first of the lot :)

My office has no dress code (Thank God!) but yeah that doesn't mean we go to office like we are on a vacation... Being casual and yet dressing up in a way that your work is taken seriously is very important. It is of utmost significance to strike a balance between the casualness of your attire and the formality of the work environment. Keeping all of this in mind, this is what I wore today...

REVIEW & LOTD: COlorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick on Over The Top 1

You all know my obsession with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks and the way I just keep buying them. One very major reason for my love for these lippies is that they are really long staying and hence wearing them to office leaves me free from the hassle of touching them up in the middle of the day! You know what I mean don't you :) Nothing personal but I have always been the one to scoff at girls who crowd the washrooms to touch up make-up or even change their make-up :P I know I know many of you do it... Nothing wrong with that ;) The problem lies with me not you :P LOL! 
So anyways this "Over The Top" shade isn't really over the top if you know what I mean, rather it is a nice soothing "corally-pink" shade that looks beautiful and feminine! Nothing vampish about it! :D
Here are the comparison swatches, lip swatch and an LOTD with it :)

So do you think it's your color? :)

Makeup For Office: A quick look!

When you are a part of an inter-community marriage, important decisions like what to cook for dinner is never easy! *sarcasm*. Mine as you all know is one, my guy is a Punjabi and I am mixed bred Manipuri and Bengali. Food habits across these three states are as different as chalk and cheese and well the discussion over what to eat isn't as straight forward! But for our love for each other (ahem!), my food habits are turning Punjabi and well my guy is stuck somewhere between a Bengali and Manipuri! LOL! Why do I say so? Well for starters I prefer roti or parathas for dinner while he wants to have rice else he remains hungry all night! hahaha! Another instance would be last night, when he wanted to have fish (maachh bhaja bengali style) and I wanted to have "chhole"... hahahahaha. So what did we finally do? We cooked both! LOL :D
Why do I bring this all up on a Monday morning afternoon you ask? Well that's because when these important dinner decisions are taken at 10:0…

REVIEW & LOTD: Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Creme Cup 1

Of course you all know that Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks are my favorite... I got myself this new shade called "Creme Cup 1". Its a fabulous shade... The swatches are here for you to decide...

HAUL: Lakme Absolute and Colorbar

With the launch of Lakme Absolute range of cosmetics, the Indian Beauty Blogosphere has been buzzing with the latest in the range and reviews of products from this range have started trickling in... Well I am not gonna be left behind for sure and I am doing my bit to keep the beauty blog readers informed of all the rights and wrongs from this range... Yup! I am so noble! :P

So anyways, I went to Central today and got myself a couple of stuff from Lakme Absolute and also from Colorbar, which is still going strong as my favorite affordable brand of cosmetics :) Now ladies and gentlemen, lets please indulge in some eye-candy ;)
Lakme with the purchase of products more than Rs.1000/- is giving this pretty jewelry box :)

A little about the products now though full reviews are gonna follow one by one. The eye shadows as you can see are baked. Lakme Absolute has introduced baked blushes as well but they seemed too glittery for my liking but you never know I might just pick one of them up :)…
