I Was Craving A FLORAL HANDBAG!


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.....
A MATCHING WALLET!!!
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.

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.....

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

Lakmé Vitamin C+ Serum ~ Does It WORK?


My bottle is near empty, the last few drops of serum rest still at the bottom, quite like the last sip of tea at the bottom of a lone tea cup in my kitchen sink. It's habitual, the tea thing. The last drops of skincare product, on the other hand, is a harbinger of either 'Need More' or 'Never Again'.

‘I’ll try it over my Mamonde Rose Water Toner today., I thought to myself many weeks ago, while standing under the hot shower. It had been raining, and I made the water January-weather hot. My body wash smelled so good, like Blueberries dipped in cotton candy spring water, and I reminded myself to have some Blueberry Greek Yogurt later. Blueberry became my #1 flavour overnight, overshadowing all the other fruit flavours. *Deleted Squid Games on Netflix Top 10 analogy here, because I couldn't get through even 1 episode - yet*


'I wonder what Kakudu Plum tastes like... like the plums that grew in the backyard of my childhood home? Nah... 'kakudu' just doesn't sound like something sweet to me. I'm thinking... somewhat bitter-sour, like amla (gooseberry). It also sounds like something with a hard shell - like coconut, something you can knock on & it'd make a ka-ku-du type of sound...' 

Before my face dried completely, it had been rose water-toned with a cotton pad. The glass dropper felt cold like a shard of ice against my face as I dragged it like a feather across half my face & squeezed little drops of Lakmé Vitamin C+ Serum. Only half my face, because I wanted to compare - and I do this as a consumer, not a f------  critic.


Then I just stood there & stared at the one half of my face in the mirror. Waiting....waiting for a (miracle) different outcome : filtered-looking pores, invisible blackheads, that plush reflective skin, that stark yang-like difference, that 'something' in a skincare product that makes you glow like you're about set to go on Instagram Reels and sync your expert skincare advice & tips with some bhangra type dance moves (hip thrust & pointing, yo). You're using all the ABC's now, after all  - AHA, BHA, Vit C. You're on the righteous path of being the Baba Ramdev of skincare.

New Black Bow Set


 Midnights With CZ- VI

As a l--nger--e addict, I've come to the conclusion that my most favourite type of br-- are the ones that almost look like tops, or at least a cropped top. Okay, said type of br-- are called b--tiers/longline b--/b--lettes. Also, if kn**kers look like little skirts or have criss-crossy thingies, I am definitely buying.

If you're wondering if I'd wear this b--lette out like a top, I would. Of course, with another black strapless br-- under it (only because it's sheer), and paired with high-waist trousers & maybe a light cardigan or shrug over it, if not a blazer. I wanna try it over a shirt too.

I saw this online & I went craaa-zzzy, because I was confused which size to get - UK 6 or UK 8.
I'm usually a 6, but I just loathe too-tight br--.... plus, I've also gained a bit of weight lately. I was so scared that it'll sell out, because everything I like online seems to sell out in 10 mins.
Finally, I just went to the store to try on both sizes. The lower band doesn't stretch too much, so my first  instinct to go with an 8 was correct.


It's very 'Gianni-Giorgio', as I like to call designer-looking clothes 😀

It reminds me of the top part of the Gaultier number Bella Hadid wore somewhere.

Beauty Haul: Lakmé, MAC, Maybelline, Kiko, Innisfree



Remember a long time ago, when I'd go shopping & then come back home....click pictures....and immediately post them on the blog? I remember I'd go to Boots & Superdrug, and sometimes I left home too late & walked to the city center, and I'd reach there just when they're closing - at 6 PM! I'd stand outside, give them a sad look, and they'd shake their heads & sternly mouth: "No, sorry, we're closed."
This didn't happen just one time, by the way.

Well, those days are back! And luckily, I'm in India now, where shops close at 10 PM! Although, last time I was in Kiko Milano, during the curfew days when shops had to close by 7:45-8 PM, a salesman had to tell me, "Ma'am, please finish soon, we're closing in 15 minutes." - this type of pressure on me made me buy a glitter lip balm, instead of something I'd really use & love, you know.

MAC Powder Kiss Lipsticks : A Little Tamed, Fall In Love


The most addictive lipsticks in my books.
So weightless.
So easy-to-wear.
So tasty (sweet).

Moisture-matte lipsticks that deliver a blur of soft-focus colour, MAC says, 
and they're exactly that.



Fall In Love ~ Bright creamy fuschia. Yes, this is very similar to MAC Retro Matte All Fired Up

A Little Tamed ~ Mid-toned pink with yellow undertones.
