OOTD + FAQS | Baby Weight, Ziizayne, Mr.CZ, Etc

Hello, Everyone! First outfit post post-pregnancy, post-baby. On this blog, I mean. If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen a few selfies already. I've always wanted to wear an ostrich skirt! Faux, of course. There are different ways I'd wear this fluffy thing, but I really wanted to wear it in a semi-casual way, so I paired it with a white shirt. Not just any white shirt, a white shirt with tabs on the sleeves, okay. To tell you the truth, I wanted to wear a bow tie that matches the skirt as well, but I didn't have the time to go hunt for it. And yes, I would totally go out in public in the complete outfit I had in mind!  #MyChoice =D
Since I can't reply to all comments & emails, I thought I should answer some frequently asked questions that I've received in the last 6 months in this post as well.....

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hey,Everyone! Just wanted to wish you all a Merry MERRY Christmas! Hope you had a lovely & blessed day with your loved ones. Sharing a few family pics we clicked today. Most of them came out a lil' blurry, coz it was a quick photo session after a long day of lunch & fun with the family.
Bubbles was very sleepy here, so he wasn't in the mood to smile (he looks depressed actually.... haha!) He smiles & tries to talk now! =D

Maxi Dress Outfit & Maternity Shoot ~ For Bubbles....

 
Bubbles, you're so heavy!
It makes me want to bend on all fours to get you off my spine....
Like a cat - MEOW!
Okay, we should do a "Maternity Shoot"
I dress up and pose and show off how big we've gotten,
You try not to headbutt my bladder like you want to evict it.
Hmm....How.....Where?
Most people seem to go to serene forest-type places....
with trees and daisies and magical-looking sun rays 
that kiss their flower headbands delicately.
And they hire pro photographers.
No, we aren't 'most people'.
No, we are not going to a forest.
You & I will do low-budget DIY shoot.
But, on the bright side.....
We'll get to wear high heels.....

I Transform Into Cersei Lannister ~ GAME OF THRONES

"When you play the Game Of Thrones. you win or you die.
There is no middle ground."

Cersei Lannister: A character created by George R.R. Martin in his books A Song Of Fire And Ice, which has been adapted into one of the most popular tv shows, GAME OF THRONES. Cersei has a twin brother, Jaime Lannister, with whom she had been in an incestuous relationship since they were adolescents. They both have a younger brother, Tyrion Lannister (the little man up there & my favorite character in the show), whom Cersei loathes because their mother died while giving birth to him.
To read more about Cersei, please go here

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?

OOTD: 21 Weeks Pregnant + Baby Gender Predictions

Firstly, this is an old dress that I don't like and never wear. It's made of those thin t-shirt fabrics that reveal what type of chaddi (underwear) you're wearing. Why did I buy it then? Well, it was on sale at this store in Kuala Lumpur called Nichii. I think 50-70% off, so we don't think twice in those situations - no, we don't. I wore it here coz it's clingy enough to show the bump properly, but it's not too tight & suffocating like my bodycon dresses.
And before people get started on the high heels, *rolls eyes*, I don't walk in them. They're just for pictures. Actually, heels that aren't too high are said to be better for your back and spine. I myself feel more comfy in kitten heels than ballet flats. Of course when your tummy gets bigger, heels may not be able to keep your body in balance. That's just common sense.
So on to baby gender talk! I'm no Ross Gellar, I would definitely want to know the gender of my baby beforehand. I had an ultrasound a couple of weeks ago, and it took all my willpower to not ask the Radiologist (You can't ask, you'd have signed a legal document beforehand). Tell me, tell me, woman! I gots to know! Ooh....look, I'll give you this lipstick!
*For Non-Indian readers: Pre-natal sex determination is illegal in India, because.....oh, you can google the details. I don't want to talk about backward people.
 Below are some of the Old Wives' Tales on how to tell if you're carrying a Boy or a Girl. Some I've heard of before, some that I dug up online:

Outfit ~ Red Lace Dress


Something happened today:
So I was alone in the bathroom brushing my teeth at around 7:30 in the evening. The water was running, I rinsed.....and just when I was turning off the tap.....I hear a sound....like a baby talking...."Uhh....." You know, like baby gibberish. I shut the tap off, and looked around the bathroom. Silence. Eerie silence. I tried hard not to feel panicky, coz I'm 16 weeks pregnant. I rushed out & called out to husband, who was in the living room.

{Story to be continued at the end of this post.}

If you're familiar with the brand Three Floor, you may have seen a dress exactly like this. But this costs much less. I just love the design & the fit. I didn't know this when I picked it, but there's actually a nude-colored lining under the lace parts - except the sleeves.

Look Of The Day: THE FIRST TIME.....

THE FIRST TIME I'm beauty blogging from our new home. If you've been wondering where I've been, I've been exhausted. If you read my other blog, you'll see what I mean. My hands feel like sandpaper now, after washing them too much. Which reminds me, I have to get a heavy-duty hand cream.

THE FIRST TIME I'm wearing a man's shirt. Men's T-shirts I wear all the time, but this is a first with a crisp shirt. I stole it from the man, and now it's hanging on a floral hanger in my closet, MINE! =D
THE FIRST TIME I'm wearing these makeup products:

Bourjois 1,2,3 Perfect CC Cream #32 Beige Claire ~ Too soon to tell if it'll rock my world, but I like the finish & light-medium coverage.

Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow #09 ~ Very impressed how soft and pigmented this is. I'm already in love with it, and I see myself wearing it a lot. 09 is a deep mocha brown, which looks a little taupe. I'd also apply it as a liner with a wet brush, like I do the other black shade #10 (swatched here) Because I have hooded lids, eyeshadows hide in the folds, unless I do this......

11 Weeks Baby Bump | New Vanity Room Preview

Well, I'm not sure if it's 11 weeks or more, coz they'll confirm the exact due date during my next ultrasound. You know, I don't even have a permanent Ob-Gyn right now, because I'm staying in Delhi, but I'll be moving to Gurgaon, so I'll have to find one in Gurgaon. Up until now, I've seen two temporary Ob-Gyns in Apollo Hospital - one lazy (and she burped loudly while talking to me!), one nice. I have to say, I don't like that hospital, it's so crowded - like a train station!
A big THANK YOU to the lovely ladies who told me about BabyCentre app in this post. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. Now I read it daily & it was the one that told me to take a belly photo some weeks ago =D
It may not look like much of a bump, but I'm finding all my pants uncomfortable & I unbutton these jeans most of the time. I'm going to order a few of those maternity jeans soon.

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.

Christmas Day Makeup, Hair, Outfit

Merry Christmas, Everyone! Hope you are having a lovely day with all your loved ones. We are here in Glasgow, loving the city but hating the weather. Rain on top of freezing cold! Went out today, but almost everything was closed. After walking a bit, we found a Chinese Buffet Restaurant, and we had lunch there. Nothing special for dinner. Hotel life....missing home, actually.
I managed to click some awkward mirror pics while I was getting ready (and while Mr. CZ was taking a catnap.) 
Before hair & rest of makeup. Crazy Eyes =D
 Curled hair with Babyliss Volume Waves Curling Tong. I curled it inwards holding the tong horizontally. Can you believe I forgot to pack my comb/hairbrush? And I forgot to buy one yesterday, so I'm living without any atm.

Holiday Party LOTD & Accessories

My favorite season & month is here! I just can't believe another year is coming to an end. I clicked these pics mainly to show off my new quirky hairband and then one thing led to another.....next thing I knew, I was naming my blog post "Holiday Party LOTD" when I didn't really go to any party....haha!
*These pics were taken on a very cloudy day. So the pics turned out very dark & noisy. Here in Scotland, one minute it's bright and sunny, and I think "Ooh, let's take pictures!" Then when I'm done gathering the things or myself, it's suddenly gloomy, sometimes when it's only 3 in the afternoon!

Outfit, LOTD ~ When I Was Minnie Mouse.....


  1. Do you adore polka dots?
  2. Do you like wearing cute hairbands & hats?
  3. Do you like long and fluttery eyelashes?
  4. Do you enjoy daydreaming?
  5. Do you like to cuddle?
  6. Do you sometimes giggle for no reason at all?
  7. Do you LOVE Bows?  

If you answered YES to 4 or more of those questions, you have an inner Minnie Mouse! Walt Disney would approve my personality quiz, yes.
I did answer YES to more than 4 *cough*, so when I had to think of an easy costume for Halloween, I decided to bring her out in the open. I managed to take some pics quickly while I was waiting for my cab =)

Haul: Makeup, Primark 'The Wonder Wrap'

You may be surprised with the photos today. I clicked them at night with flash. It starts getting dark at 4 pm here these days, I think I may have to do it often. So....I dropped in Boots & Primark today, and got a few things....
  • Maybelline Color Show Brocades Collection in Knitted Gold ~ So gorgeous I couldn't resist! It's like sequins with pink and gold bits. Price: £3.99 | Rs.402
  • Maybelline Color Show Vintage Leather Collection in Turquoise Temptation ~ This is a matte-like leather finish nail polish. Price: £2.99 | Rs.300
  • Rimmel Lasting Colour Rush Balm in Give Me A Cuddle ~ Another lip crayon to try. I love that name! Price: £5.99 | Rs.603.
  • Bourjois Color Edition 24hr Eyeshadow in Kaki Cheri #04 ~ This is a cream to powder eyeshadow, somewhat like the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo, but it definitely feels different. I picked the most unique color- khaki green with gold shimmer. It's available in gold, plum/prune, silver, electric blue, pink champagne. See all here. Price: £6.99 | Rs.704.
*3 for 2 offer at Boots.
Primark The Wonder Wrap  ~ I saw this a week ago when I'd gone to get my ghost nightie, but I didn't buy it, although there was only one Size 6-8 left (because I wasn't really supposed to shop, okay.). I though, 'Eh, I'll come another day. I'm sure they'll restock the sizes.' WRONG! I kept going to check after that but only big sizes were there. Today, I decided to just pick up Size 10-12, which is about 2-3 inches bigger than the smaller size. Size 6-8 was available in other prints, but I wanted this pink lips one. It's basically a dress towel that you secure with velcro in the front. Price: £7 | Rs.706.
Moral: ALWAYS buy it if it's the last one left! You can be sensible another time.
Primark Hair Turban ~ Last time I thought, 'Okay, I'll buy that turban only if I get the Wonder Wrap. Matching!' This turban is available in a few other colors too, including hot pink, No, it's not the same pink as the lips on the wrap, so I picked white instead =D. Price: £1.50 | Rs.150
Uff, now I'm not liking this posing photo. Trying on the wrap. It has to be cinched/pulled a little more towards one side, but it's fine. See, it even has a heart pocket! ♥

Please excuse my hurrr. I was supposed to pick up some hair color too, but it was already closing time. It really needs to be refreshed. Trimmed too, but that's another frustrating story.
Next time, I will wear Wonder Wrap & turban....apply face mask and body scrub on arms and legs.... I'll  stand in balcony  front of the mirror....hold a hairbrush like a microphone....and sing....Tu Mile....Dil Khile....I came in like a wrecking ball.....


Happy Friday, everyone! Gonna watch 2 movies tonight- Hours & Paranoia.

A DIWALI Wish ~ Lots Of Love.....

Happy Diwali, everyone! I thought about doing a special post for today, but didn't get enough time to do it. It's been crazy these last few days with Halloween and everything. There's not much going on here at the moment, but I hope to see some fireworks later tonight.
Here are some pics from my previous Diwalis.....
Both this rangoli & the one above were taken at Kuala Lumpur in 2009
Diwali time 2009, Kuala Lumpur

Have Fun & Play Safe!

Lots Of Love
