Review: Fa Whitening Deo Roll On

I remember when I was in school (probably in 7th grade) I had my first tryst with deodorants. You may think that's late though, but I am not a person whose sweat stinks. I mean I sweat a lot and all but I dont ya whatever. Anyways, what I also remember is at that time FA was a big rage among people my age. I think the brand had just launched its products in India and deodorants used to come in a cute tin can shaped packing. I just remember that I used to love the 'yellow' and I used it for a couple of years before I gave up on deodorants all together. However, of late I have been worrying about my dark underarms and hence I bought this cute lil bottle on my last trip to the retailer. Read on to know what I think about it :)

NOTD: My nails but better

Ever since I've come home (after re-locating from Bombay) I've started taking more care about my looks and my nails in particular. Since I dont have to attend regular office, I get time for myself. It's odd, however, the fact that I always tend to do my nail experiments on my mum before I try them on myself. Inevitably though every time that I do so, I curse myself because either she's dissatisfied with the outcome or she would totally ruin my hard work by being overtly fidget-ty!
Today she is out of town for work. I removed my Revlon 161 Teak Rose (reviewed here) yesterday night and could not bare to look at my bare hands for another moment so decided to give my non-manicured (is that a word ?) a face-lift!
So here goes....

To add to that I had an amazing time with my relatives at home and my favorite cousin, his gf (soon to be fiance) and I went for a night out! Totally rocking day and then this award! I'm on a roll (Dancie Dancie)

Quick TIP to up your Metabolism and shed those kilos!

So I'm going to give you 3 pointers which have worked for me in this winter season. I followed these tips along with my regular diet and exercise and lost 1.2kg in 4 days. Without further ado, I'll just let you decide:

  1.  Take a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds (methi seeds your mum/ you put in Kudhi) and dip them overnight in a cup of water. Next morning on an empty stomach have the water you soaked the seeds in.
  2. Have 2 cups of green tea everyday. I have reviewed my favorite green tea HERE. Preferably, you must have both the cups atleast half an hour before your meals but then 2 cups are the key. Have it anytime; just have it.
  3. Other than fenugreek and green tea I also have 2 mugs of coffee. And by coffee I mean a mug of toned milk with coffee powder. Lol!
Remember, if you follow these steps you might feel that you are having a lose stomach but its just a simple way of detoxifying. And I'm still having all these things for the next one month. Also, you must never add sugar or honey to any, any of these drinks.

Do let me know what you think!

Review + Lip Swatches +FOTD: ADS Professional Makeup Pencil

On my last visit to my wholesaler (from whom I procured The NIKE BODY SPLASH reviewed here and The INCOLOR Eye-Liner PEN reviewed here) I was shown a unique makeup pencil from the Company ADS. I think I have heard about ADS from all these online stores which sell cheap nail art goodies and eye-shadow palettes. Right? Also, if I am right then ADS is a Belgium based company. IF I am wrong then please feel free to correct me!

Review: Incolor No Limits Beauty Hi-Tech Eyeliner Pen

Image Courtesy: Google
You guys must have noticed that in all the makeup looks that I do, I usually use the Incolor Liner. So today I thought that I should review this eyeliner pen for you just so that you know what I'm talking about when I refer to this pen.

 It is called the Incolor No Limits Beauty Max Precision Eyeliner. 

The company claims that it is a Hi-Tech Eyeliner Pen for Professional Makeup Artists. It also says that it is made in China and no, it's not the same as Jordana Incolor Fabuliner....

Currently Loving: Bath & Body, Velvet Tuberose, Moonlight Path & Nike Body Splash

This time I got really paranoid before the due date for my period. I hate having my period in this chilling cold and the fact that I gym and wear layers and layers of clothing doesn't help one bit.
To add to my misery, I hate those pads with fragrance and I think there's something quite disgusting in their fragrance (they smell like a hospital)...ewww....
Anyways, so I always have major cramps and I figured I had to stock up on these essentials before matters got worse ;)

Review & LOTD: Beauty Rush Glossy Tint Lip Sheen in Blush, Blush

Today, I'm going to review the Glossy Tint Lip Sheen in the color Blush, Blush from Beauty Rush. Beauty Rush is a line from the beauty segment of the International label Victoria's Secret.

On first look this Glossy Tint Lip Sheen appears to be like the Chubby Stick from Clinique. Even though I have not used the Chubby Stick, from the reviews available online I have this feeling that the 2 are very different in formula and usage. However, I must admit that the packing is very very similar.

The packaging shown in this review is the older version (and resembles the chubby stick) but the newer version has signature VS stripes and looks quite different.

DIY: Lipstick Organizer

A few days back when I returned from Delhi, I opened my makeup drawer to realize that it was an utter mess. The Lipsticks were all over the place and if any/some of them were missing then I would not be able to figure it out.

To my horror I even figured that one of my favorite Clinique lipsticks was not only half open but broken as well! This really really made me scream (on the inside; I'm trying really really hard to keep my peace these days!!!)

Now at my place we have a couple of maids doing the rounds throughout the day and it's very difficult to put the blame on anyone, especially when I'm at fault for not organizing my stuff properly. Therefore, I tried my hand at this simple lipstick DIY organizer which I made in less than 30 mins! Read on to know how :)

A Note to no one in particular but myself

Recently on my trip to Delhi, in the middle of a midnight conversation with a few friends I realized that I had lost my zeal to enter into an argument. No, I don't mean an argument as a way of general retort that you throw in the sort of a tantrum, but a meaningful exchange of view points. In the year that passed by (2012) I have degenerated myself to become a self critical and utterly useless individual who lives in the peace of closed eyes. I have refused to know more about the world or to evaluate it or to come to terms with it in any which way; which is why I have become a non-argumentative Indian.

It is my resolve, much too late as it is (quite literally too) that I shall pick up my reading habit. To start off, I have picked up 'The Little Prince' which one of my new-found friends gifted me on my last birthday. I also wish to write more and research for the articles that I promise myself to indulge in. To add a lil charm to my promises to myself, I also hope to catch up with my drawing abilities and to dedicate more time to my blog-with at least a post a day!

Hoping to stick through, wish me luck!

NOTD: Revlon 161 Teak Rose

On Wednesday I was travelling to Delhi for an interview and decided to change my nail color from Violet (as supported here) to something which would be a little more formal.

Therefore, I zero-ed in on this lovely shade from Revlon which is the 161 Teak Rose Nail enamel. In India, I guess the shade goes by the number 422 and comes in 8ml bottle.

I got mine from the States and it is contained in a 14.7ml bottle. In India, 8ml costs INR140/-

Confessions: TOP 6 reasons why I'm working on my body


You guys know that I have been working on my body of late. Be it diet routine or my gym workout or what keeps me motivated, I've been trying to share all of it with you guys through my blog. However, I realized that to those of you to whom it matters-all my stories would not make much sense if you don't know how/where/when/why I got motivated at the age of 26 to really work on my body. 
So as the story goes, I'm 5'2" and on a recent trip somebody who met me for the first time nick-named me a "SHOTPUT". SHOTPUT. IMAGINE being nicknamed a SHOTPUT. That was the turning point of my life. But what helped me steer the wheel to take upon this beautiful weight loss journey?

OOTD: Matru ki Bijli!!!

Since I have already shown you my FOTD HERE; I thought I'll go ahead and share with you all my OOTD. As the story goes-I went out with my friends and we watched Matru Ki Bijli. Bijli looked quite emaciated in the movie (Tch!Tch!)-fortunately for me I don't look anywhere close to a Nazi camp dweller.HA! 
Anyways-so here's a question for you guys before we move forward-

WHAT PART OF MY OUTFIT DO YOU THINK IS A BRIGHT COLOR? (Is it the coat, the dress, or the shoes)

Any guesses???

FOTD: Natural Day Look

I was heading out for 'Matru ki Bijli' with a couple of friends and here is the look I supported. FYI today we had one of those rare bright and sunny winter afternoons here in Chandigarh. It totally called for a fresh natural all glowing look without being overtly done with color or contrast. Read on to know what products I used and to get a closer look :)

OOTD & FOTD: Winter in the Sun ;)

The maternal side of my family decided to take an outing today to the Chokhi Dhani Resort here near Chandigarh. The plan was for lunch and I wanted to get dressed in something other than my long-ish coat; you guys know well enough that I have been working on my body. Hence, on an impulse I picked out a few pieces from my closet, put them together and tried them on (keeping my fingers crossed through the entire process). It was a bright and sunny afternoon and I really didn't want to hide under a coat :)

So here's what I put together....I hope you like it!!!!

4kgs down the drain + GYM OOTD

You know how I raved about my new nutrition program in my POST HERE, but I must also confess that being strict about your diet (alone) is not going to do any good for your body-especially if you don't move your muscles. There was a point in time when I was only gymming and yet not losing even a single kilo only because I was throwing all sort of trash inside my system on the pretext of it being food! Hmmm...
Read on to know what I do at the gym and why I think it is important to wear well fitted clothes to the gym!!!

NOTD: Revlon Top Speed 670 Violet; NAIL TREND 2013

Revlon Top Speed, 670-Violet

So my mum got this one from the States last year. Yesterday when I was trying to pick a color for my nails I looked at all the neons and pinks in my stash and said, "YOU'RE ALL SO 2012; LET'S TAKE A BREAK." With that I hovered over to this violet shade and asked, " Shall we try a One-Night Stand?"

Review: Colorbar Obsessed Orange & Thrilling Pink+LOTD

Hello to all my Dear Desi Beauties (DDBs')!

This post will be a review of 2 lipsticks about which I had heard from more than half of the beauty bloggers in India. Most of these bloggers were raving about this lippies in a way which made my mouth water over them. As such, on my visit to Delhi Last year I could not resist the temptation to haul them. You may visit my HAUL POST here. Anywho, I instantly fell head over heels over these unique colors and had to buy them! I mean had to, had to, absolutely had to :)

Getting Ready for the wedding: OOTD & FOTD Wedding day!

You all have been such a great encouragement that I cannot begin to thank each and everyone of you for appreciating my efforts. You know that your support keeps me up, about and posting! So I could not wait to reveal the wedding day outfit with all of you. I'll share with you all a lil trick that my granny told me-i think it works equally well for the bride as well as her bridesmaids and that is to always look a lil subdued for the ceremonies preceding the wedding day-so that when you finally get ready for the wedding-you look absolutely stunning!


I supported a shawl while stepping out cause it was soooooo damn cold-but then I took it off when I reached the wedding!

Getting Ready for a wedding: OOTD & OOTD :P

Happy NEW YEAR!!!!

I'm so sorry for being late, but I was chilling in my hometown-no, I mean literally chilling. It's so fucking cold here in chandigarh-we might as well have snow in a couple of years! I wanted to share with you guys some of the outfits which I wore for my best friend's wedding and also for my cousin's wedding.

First up, let me start with the outfit which I wore for my best friend's sangeet ceremony and then repeated it on 29th December for my cousin's sangeet also! It's one of my favorite sangeet outfits because its green and has just the appropriate amount of detailing required from a pre-wedding outfit.
Generally I'm not the kinds who can support sleeveless outfits (there was a time when I used to wear only sleeveless clothes but ever since I gained weight most of it got stuck on my arms!) and I'm super glad that this anarkali came with sleeves even though they were see-through! Now you cant figure out but theres pink detailing on the upper portion and I'll show it to you in the next picture :)
