Makeup When You Look DRAB

You know that "Pregnancy Glow" you keep hearing about? Well, not every knocked up woman gets to wear it like a halo. Most days, I feel like a lazy kangaroo with lacklustre waist-length hair. I'm too tired to prettify myself, and I've developed a habit of doing my makeup halfway too - BB cream, powder, a bit of brown eyeshadow on the crease....okay, that's it.
On this particular day, I made an effort to brighten myself (and mood) up. I'll jot down a few mini tips, and I hope my 'baby brain' will still translate my thoughts into words that make sense.


Michael Kors Glam Jasmine Perfume

I have a vivid childhood memory. One of my favorite things to do when I was a kid was, pluck jasmine flowers whenever I see them. I'm trying to recall from where exactly, but I just can't at the moment. Chances are, my act could have easily been classified as theft or vandalism, and I might have unknowingly made a few jasmine plant owners very very angry. Anyways.... I used to pluck them .... picked the petals, one-by-one .... rolled them between my hands until the white petals became brownish and damp .... shook the poor things off my hands .... and then .... the climactic moment - smelled my hands. Mmm......
Michael Kors Glam Jasmine Perfume smells almost like that, except it's slightly embellished and has more depth. It's not a light & airy floral scent, but at the same time it's not too strong & musky. It's simply feminine ~ like a flowy pastel pink strapless dress with minimal gold accessories.
Now let's talk packaging, as always: It's a simple glass bottle, but the gold cap with metal rivets detailing is e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g! It's like those plain handbags that somehow always look expensive. The more I look at the bottle, the more I fancy it. Even Michael Kors Nail Polishes have the same packaging. So cute! ♥_♥
About: GLAM JASMINE gives center stage to Kors’ beloved floral note, jasmine, while warm woodsy notes and sparkling citrus are less prominent. The GLAM collection embodies the woman who amplifies her evening with color-concentrated looks in rich, deep hues like plum and berry. The fragrance, like the fashion statement, is overtly feminine, designed for a woman who likes turning heads.
Key Notes: Jasmine, Cassis, Sandalwood.


Baby CZ's 1st Fashion Haul

Hello, Everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. So yesterday, I washed all these brand new & pristine baby clothes. But I decided to click pics before I popped them in the washer.
I got all of these from Mothercare last month when they had a sale going on, so most of them were 30-50% off. We don't know the sex of Baby CZ yet, so we had to pick only gender neutral colors and prints. It wasn't easy, coz there weren't many choices. Girl Babies are spoiled for choice, I must say! =)
These are a set of 8 pieces.

Set of 3 bodysuits. 
White mittens came in a separate pack.

This blanket is also available in Pink & Blue. I almost bought the pink one for myself years ago when we were buying stuff for my S-I-L's newborn. Just because I liked it so much ;p

I emptied a section of my closet for baby clothes. So nice I am ;p =D

I couldn't help it! =D

Hope you liked the haul. I've still got a lot to learn. 

It'll be more easier & fun once I know exactly what to look for and what to stay away from.

Have a good week all!

Thank You for reading, talk again soon.

Cheap & Awesome Makeup Drawer Organizers

How much are you willing to pay for 1 drawer organizer (be it acrylic or plastic)?

Me, no more than Rs.100. Especially when I'd need more than 5.

Which is why I was over the moon when I got these for Rs.50 ($0.8) each! 

I picked up only 4 of them first to test how they'd fit in my drawer. They're perfect, and I needed 10 more for two drawers. 7 in each. I went back to the shop, but they weren't available at the time. 

I got 2 white & 2 grey, coz I wasn't sure which color I wanted. Now I know I want only white.

Other available colors: Black, Pink, Purple, etc.

Bigger sizes are also available in the same design.


Home Shopping : My Favorite Pieces

That Yellow! I am utterly IN LOVE with it at the moment! The couch doesn't fit in or match the couches we already have and it's not soft and plushy enough, otherwise.......and yes, I want that table too! So matching with the yellow couch, no? =D 

These are pictures I took in Lifestyle Home Centre of the things I really liked. I wanted to share, in case you all are looking for similar pieces......or just for inspiration.

I just love this dresser! The 'belt-type' leather pullers are so creative <3 Ooh...and that stool!
There's a matching chest of drawers too - see it in the mirror there.

Price: Rs.27,960

I've been on the hunt for a bed with a quilted headboard for a while now, and this is the only one I've found so far. It's nice, but I want a taller headboard. I think this was Rs.52,000-62,000.

That's all for today. Did you like anything?

Thank You for reading. Talk again soon!

Eyelash Extensions, Anyone?

I had a plan when I was staying above Select City Walk Mall 2 weeks ago - during our mini Babymoon vacay:

I'll go to the Eyelash Extensions Salon right after breakfast, as soon as it opens. 
Puffy eyes....
Absolutely no makeup....
I'll wear goggles sunglasses.
Inside the mall?
Yes, so what?!
Maybe I'll tie a scarf on my head.

I'd googled and found out there is a place that does Eyelash Extensions here in Delhi......


What I Wore, Etc

Hi, Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. Thought I'd quickly post some pics from the mini holiday a.k.a. 'Babymoon'. I didn't pack much, so I stuck to 1 bag & 1 pair of shoes.

I'm loving both these dresses, coz I don't look too pregnant in them. But, either way,  my bump doesn't show much in pics, for some reason. I think Baby CZ is camera shy, coz it hid its face even during my last ultrasound =D
Outfit #1:
Zara Dress With Slit Shoulders | Lino Perros Bag | My favorite pregnancy flat shoes (shown here)

Outfit #2:
Vero Moda Ruffle Dress | Same Lino Perros Bag | Same Shoes

L'Opera, Select City Walk

Breakfast desserts

 Ramen Noodles at Yo! China Cafe, DLF Place. They tasted H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E! >.< (I don't know, I never like Yo! China food.)

Virgin Mary at Geoffrey's, Select City Walk. Love this pub! Drinks & food - both good.

Thank You for reading & I'll see you again soon.

Have a great week! =)

Jewelry/Accessories Haul ~ Forever 21, Accessorize, Claire's, Forever New, Etc

It's SALE time.
You find something you really like at 50% OFF.
It fits perfectly and/or it's looks very very nice.
You feel so lucky!
Just like when you find money you'd forgotten about in your jeans pocket.
As you're standing in the queue to the cash counter,
Not only are you grinning (creepily, if you're being watched),
You're also thinking: 'I could win a award for Best Bargain Shopper! Ooh....maybe I should turn it into a career! Ya, lazy people will pay me to go shoppi.....Oh, my turn!'
You take out your wallet to pay for the greatness that, at this point, you'd scratch people for if they tried to snatch it from you! (Meow!)
The cashier says a number that's not the same one in your head.
A smaller number.
It's actually 70% OFF! 
They must've forgotten to change the sticker on the tag.
Now you're shaking a little bit,
 and all of your teeth want to come out and ogle at the cashier.
But you warn yourself.....
'Be cool.' 


That, ladies & gentlemen, has happened to me twice.  

First time: At Lipsy in Glasgow last December - I thought I had to pay £20 (Rs.2000) for a top, but the price was £12 (Rs.1200)

 Second time: At Claire's recently with a not-so-expensive hairband, but still.

On to the haul.....

Forever 21 Chandelier Earrings, Rs.409 ~ Why 2 pairs? One pair is for the winner of the "What's In The Box" Contest =)

Forever 21 Romantic Duster Earrings, 539.

Clinique Cheek Pop Blushers Now In India!

I'd been waiting for these a looong time!

Gone to Clinique specially several times since March to ask if they'd been launched.

Always the same reply ~ "Not until August."

Last week, they were finally at the Select City Walk Mall store.

But only the first 2 shades at the top ~ Berry Pop & Plum Pop.

Bottom 2 shades, Peach Pop & Ginger Pop, hadn't arrived yet. SA said they'll also be launched soon.

 I didn't pick up any, coz there were no testers!

But I will definitely get one when I've tested them all.

Price ~ Rs.2100 (I know. Sigh)

Are you drooling over these? Which shade do you think looks the best?

Babymoon OOTD | Makeup I Packed

What's a Babymoon? A vacation you take before the baby comes. It's supposed to be like a Honeymoon. Most people head abroad, but we stayed in the city, because I can't handle long journeys - even when I wasn't pregnant. I need to take a tablet to prevent air/motion sickness every time I travel far.
We went to stay in Delhi at Svelte Personal Suites Hotel. The one on top of Select City Walk Mall. Just for 3 days. 3 days of only eating & shopping! It was fun to be a tourist (well, sort of) in your own city. We discovered good shops & restaurants that we probably wouldn't have otherwise. This was what I wore on the last day. It's my favorite dress.....
The hotel has a terrace pool. As you can see, it was very windy. Control the flying dress or flying hair?


Ted Baker Bow Bag DUPE ~ For FREE!

Hola! How are you all doing? I'm back from my mini vacation. But more on that in the next post. I wanted to get this post up first.
Seriously, the best things really are FREE! I hauled quite a bit, but this particular haul's the one that got me the MOST excited! This.Bag. I can't even! If you've been haunted by the bow-tiful, but pricey, Ted Baker bags, go get one of these ASAP before they sell out!
Ted Baker bags are available in India at a store called 'The Collective', which has a few outlets in Delhi/NCR, like at Ambience Mall Gurgaon. The bag similar to this one costs Rs.3500. I crossed it off my wishlist, now that I have this free version =D
