Before I Turn 37......


Hey you all! Hope you're doing good. Me, I'm doing great, but I just can't deal with the fact that it's  already my birthday month again! How does time move so fast??! I haven't even finished writing my birthday wishlist from last year!

How do I feel about turning 37 in 2.5 weeks? Almost the same as when I turned 36, to be honest. I feel like it's like a filler age of the late 30's. Like I'm in the middle of a see-saw, and I'm.....umm, I can't complete that analogy articulately. That's how dull & irrelevant it feels like.

So....as you can see, I'm still in the gingham phase, and although I bought 2 other gingham clothing  items, I promise this is the last one I'll be posting here. I shall control myself & my 60's fixation.
But right now, please at least appreciate the matching earrings & shorts. 

Falling into 37 like..... 
(Ohhh! That's me in the middle of that see-saw.)

My 2 AM Thoughts | Nightwear OOTD


This blog post was inspired by a very touching email I got from a reader recently. It's a story about her life that she shared with me. I thought it was one of the sweetest things, for someone to tell somebody they'd never met something personal & heartbreaking. She also requested me to blog more regularly again, because it's what she looks forward to, and she added that she finds me relatable. That alone made me want to just come here and post something! I wanna take this moment to apologize to everyone who feels the same way, I know I've been leaving you hanging....and maybe a lil' confused. 

I also wanna say to every one else who's going through a hard time, and you find yourself on a broken road, please know that you're not alone. I've been there, and so have a lot of the people I've met over the past few months. Everyone is battling something, everyone is masking something too personal or painful to talk about. But in time, it gets better. You'll feel better. And one day, you'll find yourself thinking - "This wouldn't have happened if that hadn't happened to me."  - with gratitude. 

I can't promise you my own story, because I see no logic in talking about things you want to forget or simply move on from, you know. Also, I'm not very good at talking about serious matters on this platform. Even now, I already feel uncomfortable & if it was in real life/in person, I would probably be saying something stupid or quote an overused phrase at this point.

So for now, I hope me making this impromptu personal post EXTRApersonal by posing in my nightwear & bathroom would be like our  little virtual slumber party & help us reconnect again! =D

Take out your pennies for my.....

2 AM Thoughts......


(Hoping I'll be able to buy something pretty with them when this is over. 
I'm thinking....a perfume, with a bow on it!)

Birthday Confessions & Haul


Today's NOT my birthday. It came & went a week ago, but I couldn't find the time to get this post up then. Now I'm doing the usual should I/shouldn't I post thing.....and then I post it.

Let's start with the good stuff... 

....and you will see I went a lil' crazy with the liquid lipsticks....


Starting from the top, clockwise:

Benefit They're Real Mascara Mini ~ Oh my God! I'm doomed, because I will need the full-sized tube. This mini version is around  Rs.800 & the full sized tube is Rs.2400 or so. It is fantastic - long, fluttery & separated lashes like no other mascara I've tried before. (From Sephora)

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Personal Statement (Shocking Pink), Rich & Restless (Mid tone pinky salmon) & Lady Be Good (Warm Mid-tone Nude) ~ Out of stock. Always out of stock. It's a miracle few shades were restocked on my birthday! 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellisissima (Pale Neutral Pink), Patina (Dusty Rose) & Fiore (Hot Pink) ~ LOVE these! (From Sephora)

Chambor Extreme Wear Transfer Proof Liquid Lipstick in 461 (Coral) & 431 (Red) ~ I like the first one I got #403, so I couldn't resist getting a coral & a red. I think I'm done now ;p

MAC Face & Body Foundation in C2 ~ It's time to try out a MAC Foundation for realz. Another product that was OOS for months! I mean my shade C2.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Mat-Finish & Enhanced Radiance Loose Powder 4 in 1 Harmony ~ My favorite & the most pricey (Rs.4000). This has been on my wishlist since last year. There are 4 powders in this - beige, yellow, peach, bronze. (From Sephora)

Birthday Pics & Haul

Hi everyone, Happy Sunday! I don't usually blog on Sundays, but this post was supposed to be up on Friday! I don't know what happened. Thursday the 22nd was my birthday, and this is the outfit I did not wear....haha....only because it was a lil' too formal for shopping. In addition to that, it felt too tight around the waist part! You may not see the baby bump here, but boy I couldn't breathe! I wasn't feeling that great to be clicking a OOTD, but I wanted to click some pics with Mr.CZ, so I decided to quickly click a few singles.

Dress:Forever New
Belt: Jane Norman
Shoes: ZARA (shown properly here)
Bag: Floozie
Watch: Fossil
Nails: The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Nails PK109 (shown here)


I didn't have time to click pics of my final outfit, but below is an Instagram pic in the car....

Skirt: Topshop (worn here) I wore it with a Lipsy top. After dinner, they also felt too tight! I had to unzip my skirt while sitting in the car =D
Bag: Warehouse
Shoes: Vincci slip-ons with kitten heels (shown in video below)

My birthday cake. I was dying to have pineapple cake. People say you're not supposed to have pineapple when you're pregnant, but my Doc said it's fine to eat after the 1st Trimester.

Yes, I made a special wish ;)

I got some pink carnations & coral roses (I asked for 6 roses, but seller mistakenly packed 5). They dried up in 2 days, because of this hot weather (or maybe I didn't cut the stems right?), and now I don't feel like buying fresh flowers anymore! =\

Had dinner at Nandos in Cyber Hub. I had 1/4 Chicken (Extra Hot) with Spicy Rice, Portuguese Salad & Tea (yup, no wonder I had to unzip my skirt!) Mr.CZ had a burger.

After that, we went to Hard Rock Cafe. Loved the music there & I had one big glass of Virgin Bloody Mary. Here's an Instagram video I posted that day....



Haul:

 Clockwise:

Forever New Kyla Ponte & Lace Yoke Dress
Zara Dress With Slit Shoulders Yellow
Forever New Joselyn Lace Yoke Applique Shirt
Zara Draped Skirt
Forever New Corrine Chain Jewelled Belt
Forever New Pure Bow Hair Clip
 


So...ya, my clothes are too tight, and high heels aren't comfortable for long anymore.
It is going to be a magical time! =D


Thank You for reading all, talk again soon!
