My TOP 5 Cosy House Coats

Does a dislike for winters come naturally to everyone who grew up in hilly/wet/cold areas?

I'm a summer girl, and I really appreciate that winters here are short-lived. I was just thinking about getting some new fleece socks, because all my ancient ones have been misplaced or have holes in them....but here we are, at 29° already.

There are only 3 things that I will miss about winter:

- Boots
- The messages Zii leaves me on the hot shower steam in the bathroom.
- Plushy, Cosy House Coats - or dressing gowns & robes.

Ah, I dream of the day when I can just walk out the door in a plushy house coat. So many winter mornings I wished I could just throw on a plush coat over my pyjamas & put on some boots to drop Zii to school. I mean, what would be wrong in that, really?

I realized that I was a bit too obsessed them, when they were all I wanted to buy from most stores.  So I really controlled myself this past winter. I didn't buy any! I lived in just 5 of my favourites......


February Poetry

"Did you count?
The number of times he said my name in his sleep.

Did you curse?
When the syllables lingered ; hung there like feathers on a dream catcher."


"You'll do it again. Over and over again.
Fill your vase with wilting petals, rotting stems, and impending doom."


"In the emptiness, was a perfectly placed allegory."


"They were all smiles and courteousness.
All wore the same perfume - a subtle kind of eau de toilette, with very telling base notes:
citrusy resentment, musky ill-will, and aromatic ulterior motive."

"If you want transparency, eliminate the sugar-coated variety."


"You were a plot hole that didn't fit my story; a flawed concept I had to erase. "


"Just wrap your facade with a neat little ribbon made of treachery, and you're good to go."


Maybelline Fit Me Fresh Tint with Vitamin C & SPF 50

NEW! Maybelline Fresh Tint with Vitamin C & SPF 50

Makeup + Skincare Hybrid with Natural Coverage & Matte Finish.

I'd ordered this online and a day later, I saw on Maybelline's Instagram that it's a new launch in Asia only.
I was quite surprised it was available in India already....and it was on it's way to meeee!

Shades available in India: 6 shades.


Vintage Rose Lips

It's awkward & stressful when people ask me what lipstick I'm wearing, because it's never just one shade. Most times it's 4-5 shades, sometimes it's more. Sometimes there's even an eyeshadow, or a blush, or a concealer involved.

Doing my lips is always like getting into a car and driving with no destination in mind. My new thing is putting a stack of little pre-torn square tissues for lip blotting on my vanity table. 
It's become a compulsion - applying, layering, blotting & re-applying multiple times....until someone yells, "LET'S GO! WE'RE LATE!"

Here are 8 lip products that I have been using everyday, to create my favourite rosy-n*de-a bit peachy-but more pinky combination - which I now simply call Vintage Rose....



A few months ago, a floral handbag was all---I---could---think---about!

I searched everywhere online. Some too pricey, some too dicey.

I went to my favourite LYN, and the website was down. I found out later that the brand had pulled out of India - like some other international brands....  *bleep* Covid *bleep* *bleep*

Just when my interest was starting to dwindle - as with all things that don't come to me easily, I stumbled upon a floral handbag I liked....

but is it the one?
maybe I can find a prettier one?
a pink one?
maybe I should check that app.....
oh yes, it is the one.

The following weekend, I was at the store. Prayed both bag and wallet would be there, because they belong together. They are a co-ord set.

I need to do some serious clearing out asap, so I'm selling my "good closet pieces".

Vintage-Inspired Gingham Set

A gorgeous set I got back in July, but have never really worn. 
Wearing is never the point anyway, it's the h-a-v-i-n-g *bites nails*

If you're familiar with For Love & Lemons stuff, you'll see that this set is somewhat similar to their vintage vibe - with the little covered buttons, daisies & eyelash lace.

I HAD to get my hands on it immediately after it was launched on their website. 
They had me at 'gingham'; they sold me at little coated buttons.

Bottoms are adorned with gold heart hardware with straps along the back.


Traditional Haul ~ JAINSEM

I was in my hometown, Shillong, in July, and I bought these traditional pieces last minute - meaning: the day before leaving. So, they're not even completely stitched yet - the hemlines need to be embroidered and scalloped and whatnot (see on the yellow floral one in the pics below).

Our traditional attire (what sarees are to some of you), is called 'Jainsem'. 
'Jain' means cloth, 'sem' means drape. Both words are Khasi language.

How We Wear It: There's 2 pieces of square fabric, which you drape over each other; each going from under the arms and pinned at the opposite shoulders. Gosh, I hope I explained that alright. 
Please google it, if I confused you.

Pins for securing each piece of the Jainsems.


Stuffed Toy Blanket ~ Product Of The Month

There are some things I buy for my kid that I wish I did not buy for my kid. 
You know what I mean?

You tell your kid there's a surprise present on the way, he/she gets super excited, it arrives, you want it for yourself......but it's too late for you to stea--- backtrack.

It's actually a "Return Gift" he expects on his parents' birthdays. 

After I checked everywhere online and found nothing, this stuffed toy reindeer blanket seemed like the best & cutest choice - that isn't Hot Wheels, or the likes. He's into plushies lately, so he adores it!


Jewelry Haul

Hello, my blog readers! 🤗  
It's been a while - as my opening line always goes.

My eyelash extensions had been brand new and fallen off, Britney & Jlo have gotten married, a new season of KWK is now streaming.....
But my haul in January-February & birthday post from May have not been posted here yet 😂

My life moves so fast like you wouldn't believe these days, and I've just been feeling very detached from the online world.  Plus, you might have gotten a life update on my Insta, so my head is always elsewhere.

I clicked these pics on a rainy day to pearlize my mood..... 


Pieces Of Me.......

Wool Beret ~ H&M

Harness Belt ~ H&M Blackpink Collection

Pyramid Heeled Ankle Boots ~ H&M

That One Small Eyeshadow Palette.....

Product Of The Month/Season

You have brown, mauve & pressed glitter - in a stylish & well-thought of gold-encased basket weave packaging, mirror & all.

The last 4th shade works as a highlighter as well.

This palette is all I've been wearing with smudged brown & black kohl pencils.

Kiko Milano Dolce Diva Eyeshadow Palette in 02 Sleek Mauve

Nail Polish Of The Month

This green! 😍

It's called 'Honeydew Melon', if I Google searched correctly. 
Now I'm wishing for a velour tracksuit set in this exact colour. I might have to call H&M.
*M A N I F E S T I N G*

W For Woman, the Indian wear brand, have launched their own nail polish & cosmetics line in select stores. I picked up these 2 nail polishes for Diwali.

Green is named, Breeze
Silver glitter is named, Dazzle

Their nail polish manufacturer is the same as Colorbar's, btw. I'd say the quality is almost the same too.

Price: ₹199
