Inexpensive Jewelry Haul


So I see my last Jewelry Haul post is from August 2014 (Post here)!
I'd stopped buying jewelry, except for a few stud sets & hoops from H&M every once in a while. 
And now, I'm kinda obsessed with big statement earrings. I want to wear a nath (big nose ring) too!

Btw, this is a collective haul. I bought these in a span of 4-5 months, not all at once.

What's Christmas Like?



MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! Hope you're having a day filled with love & happiness.


Well, I didn't really have a Christmas post lined up, coz it's been hectic lately. So I decided to use these pics (where my hair is a mess, btw)

Let's talk about deep, meaningful things in between.

What's your Christmas like?


Mine:

~ Discovering too late that the tree lights are all spoiled. It's okay, I'll get new ones after Christmas, before New Year's Eve.

~ There's a Santa soft toy from Hamley's, that I don't mind my son doesn't appreciate, because I secretly got him for myself. I whisper "Dear Santa, please........" in his ears, which he doesn't really have.

~ Watching Ziizayne mimic the facial expressions & dance moves in Sia's The Greatest. When I was pregnant with him, I used to blast Chandelier in my ears, btw.

~ Making plans to go out, and then decide it's too cold. 

~ Finding out that the geyser is broken while already under the shower.   

~ Watching Ziizayne play with his main Christmas present - a car track thing, and being enthu with one battery-operated car that comes with it more than he is. 


~ Christening my new The Body Shop Body Butters that I was gifted- Vanilla Chai & Frosted Berries. Both yum!

~ Not wanting to eat anything sweet & Christmassy.  Ordered spicy Indian food instead - Laal Maas from Coriander Leaf Restaurant. It's the best mutton curry ever!

~ Wanting to listen to long-time favorite Christmas songs - Last Christmas, All I Want For Christmas.... but finding them too peppy. 

~ Blasting R&B/Rap instead. A new artist I just discovered - NF. Listen to All I Have & Wait if you want to know what lyrics are filling my head.  

~ Feeling gangsta - in pyjamas - trying to ignore the pain from one remaining wisdom tooth. 

~ Waiting for 9 pm  8:30 pm 11 pm, so I can open the new wine - White.



Let me back some of those up with a pic:

THE LAST TIME.....


You know what I absolutely love doing? Picking tomato seeds from tomato fried rice, which I make for Ziizayne. If I could, I'd make a whole bucket of tomato rice (with extra tomatoes, of course) and be at it all day. I'm serious! I enjoy picking little odd things out of little things.

You know what I absolutely hate doing? Packing & house moving. Today is the last day I'll be in this house. We're moving to a hotel tomorrow, and will be there until the work at our new place is done. Right now all I want is a back/head/leg massage.....and to sleep for a week.

Since I did a 'First Time' in this apartment post, I thought I'd do a 'Last Time' in it, as well.

If you read my First Time post, you will realize that we were greeted by a monkey & were also chased out by a (bigger) monkey =D (Read here)

Monkey menace aside, we decided to move to a smaller place. Until now, we were living in a 4BHK with 5 bathrooms (6 if we count the helper's quarter), and not only was it hard to maintain, it never felt cosy, and...I don't know, something or the other kept going wrong.

So we are moving to a 3BHK with only 3 bathrooms, where the rooms are much more compact.

OOTD ~ Varsity Sweater Dress


Thoughts:

~ Why didn't I apply a black nail polish? Or black & white stripes...haha... who are you kidding?!
~ When will the skin on my hands be smooth again? Moist.
~ What if that aggressive father monkey that was living on our balcony when we were out of town comes back & attacks me? I'll use backpack as a shield. 

~ Hmm...I feel like watching that movie 'The Craft' again.

 ~ Tiesto. Playing. In Gurgaon. Can't go. Life of a Mommy, sigh. (He's playing tonight, btw)


~ My baby. Can't wait for bedtime cuddles & tickles.

Still Here....


Chaos.
 
 
               Lost.
 
 
Soul in my goddamn imperfect world.
 
 
            Feet in my seemingly perfect shoes. 

(Wait, that didn't rhyme anymore! But it's not meant to be poetry, you idiot. Okay, keep going....)


But you.....
 
(Yes, pause for effect.)
 
 
 No matter how many times I've failed,
 
I'll always find my way back to you.

 
(What the....Cheeesy! Get outta here!!! Go put on that new dark lipstick that matches that F21 headband you treat like a piece of valuable art, and....ah, never mind.... just get out!)

But First, I'll Be Your Personal Shopper [SALE]

Hello! 
I'll be your Personal Shopper today.
You can call me Agent Personal Shopper.
Agent PS?
Or anything you want.
Just make sure you put in the word 'Agent' 
(I tried to sneak in the word 'Secret' too, but....)
Because it sounds cool & because I'm holding the hair dryer like a gun.
Plus, you need to have an agent-type....umm.... aura when you hit the Sale racks - 
Next time you're in ZARA during sale, take a minute to look at the other women.
Where? Oh, there's one!
That side....in that corner over there....(Ooh that top she's touching looks nice! I WANT!)
That's why they don't want to be near you!
And most of them would no doubt be shopping alone.
Oh, yes. Rule #1- Always go SALE shopping alone.
No one is to be trusted.
Especially if 'no one' is.......

 So without further delay, here are some goodies you can - and MUST - buy right now. I mean RIGHT NOW!


Forever New Ria Printed Hi Low Dress: 50% OFF! Rs.6200/Rs.3095. It is so pretty and so worth the price- the sale price. Comes with a gold belt. It's still available online here, and there's a similar dress with a different print here.

July Nightwear: Rs.1199/Rs.959. I LOVE this brand July Nightwear! I always end up liking only their pyjama sets while browsing Jabong. I got this Disney one here and a few more sets. All pyjama sets & sleepwear are 20% off right now. You can check out the entire range here.

Corioliss Mini Vintage Hair Dryer (Limited Edition): Rs.2999/Rs.1399. How cute?! HOW CUTE?!!! Nykaa had this in one of the sliders amongst hair dryers on sale. I saw, I clicked, I ordered. I prefer mini/travel hair dryers coz they're light. I checked online and it was $85 when it was launched :O ....If the floral & cute blue pouch are calling your name, go grab it before it's gone at Nykaa HERE

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.
Waitaminute....huh? 
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.

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!

Current Beauty Favorites

Hi! If you're not following me on Instagram or my personal Facebook Page, it may seem I've been gone from the blog for a long time, and you don't know the happy news yet. Which is, we have found an apartment & we are moving in probably next week. I'm super excited, because I can't wait for life to start....and have all my things set up properly. That white fluffy things is a new rug for my dressing room.
Now let's talk favorites! Starting from the tall ones back there:
Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage Body Wash, Rs.135 ~ With thermal salts & white clay. This has got to be of my most favorite body washes. I've gone through 2 bottles since I got back to India. I just love that it smells like a holiday by the beach.
Vaseline Healthy White Complete 10 Lightening & Anti-Aging Body Lotion, Rs.175 ~ I went through many bottle of the original Healthy White Body Lotion, mainly coz I liked the smell so much. This one is a slightly more moisturizing version with anti-aging benefits, but smells the same.
Pond's Dreamflower Talcum Powder, Rs.49 ~ I previously used the purple one, which lasted forever! I decided to try this pink one, and it smells lovely, although I like the fragrance of the purple one a little bit more.
MAC Brush Cleanser, Rs.650 ~ A brush cleanser is a must-have. I was using one by Stage Cosmetics (Malaysian brand), which lasted for a long long time! There was still some left in the bottle when I discarded it in Scotland. I had to turn to MAC when I got back, because again, there's not many available here in India. It works well & cleans even the dirtiest brush in a jiffy.

Beauty Addict And Her Stash To Pack | OOTD

Leaving UK in less than 2 weeks now, so that means these are crazy packing times! Last night, I was home alone. Mr.CZ had gone to Newcastle and he'll be back till later this evening. I layed almost all my makeup and beauty products on the bed in our guest bedroom. This bed just has a sheet, and we didn't get any pillows and whatnot for it because, you know, no point. These are most of my beauty products (save for some skin & hair products I keep in the bathrooms) that I'm packing to take to India.
I decided to throw myself into the MESS, because it's always been my dream to sleep on/next to a pile of makeup products..hehe. Btw, I kept my left knee bent in most pics, coz I was trying to hide a a big (healing) bruise. I fell down on the bridge a couple weeks ago. Always been a quiet bridge, but that day, a couple was walking towards us, and they saw me fall. Because that's how life is - you never fall without an audience.

Weekend Arm Candy And Shopping

Shopping ban is over! Hip, Hip, Hooray! You know what, I've had to live without a lot of things and people for months, and going shopping was the one thing that was filling the void. Giving up something like that for over a month was a sensible thing to do.... but never again! Well, at least while I'm away from homeland =)
 
Items hauled on Saturday:
  • H&M Floral Mini Skirt (vintage looking watercolor print) - from the sale rack for only £5 (Rs.413)
  • H&M girly thingies.
  • Primark Cardigan
  • Primark Peplum Top
  • Primark Bag 
  • Rimmel Products 

Watch ~ Fossil Georgia Glitz Rose Gold Watch. I'm wearing this more than the Fossil Jesse Rose Gold, coz it's less blingy & feels lighter  |  Pearl Bracelet ~ Forever New.

Outfit Of The Day ~ Suspender Tights, Frills & Bows

You'll either love or hate suspender tights. Although I absolutely hate some styles, I bow to the genius who started the trend. I just adore the girly-looking ones, like this pair right here.
I almost froze during this photo shoot. It was so cold & windy that day, I couldn't feel my hands anymore by the time I was done.
*All self-timer photos, so you'll see some odd & blurry shots.
