*Birthday Post*

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to say a quick Hi to everyone and post a few pictures from my birthday which was on February 13th. This birthday was unlike any I have celebrated till date because usually it is party time for me and my loved ones on my birthday but this time it was a quiet romantic dinner with my husband at MY favorite restaurant. You may think what’s the big deal about it? Well, for starters my husband did the reservation as a surprise at this beautiful Tuscan grill called L’andana. He doesn’t like any food other than Indian so I knew this was only for me. Secondly, we hardly ever go out where it is just the two of us. Sooo, yeah it was fun to have a nice romantic dinner date with my darling!

Here are a few pictures of that day. I apologize about the quality of the pictures because I took them from my phone.

I have two pictures of the makeup up I did that day. Tell me how you like it. It was golden black smokey eyes with pale nude lips and very peach cheeks.


Happy Birthday to me!

Operation: Makeover ;)

Hey Everyone!!

Last week my sister and I were just hanging at home and I was showing her all the new makeup products I had bought. Suddenly, it struck my mind that why not do a makeover video! I asked my sister if she would volunteer and she loved the idea. I was extremely excited but we didn’t have much time left to tape so we scheduled it for the next weekend. So finally came the next weekend and I decided to do a sparkly, glittery look on her. Soft pink glitter with black smokey eyes was the perfect choice to make my pretty sister look like a sexy siren!

I had a lot of fun doing this makeover and the icing on the cake was that my sister and her husband loved her transformation!

In the video, I have mentioned the products I used, in case anyone wants to try this look out.

Here is the video:

I really hope that you like this video and my attempt at doing a makeover.

Do let me know how you like this post. Leave a suggestion or a comment.

Nails of The Day (NOTD)

Yayyyy for my first nails of the day post!

Halloween is around the corner so I decided to put on the color of halloween with a little touch of my own. I absolutely have no flair for nail art which is quite evident..hehe. Anyhoo, the reason I am so excited about this post is because I have extremely brittle nails and once they chip, it takes forever for me to grow them back. So it is a case of ‘Enjoy while it lasts’ for me. You may think then why not go for acrylic or gel nails? Well, I did that for some time but I couldn’t keep up with the maintenance. I am extremely lazy when it comes to my visits to the salon!

I just love O.P.I nail colors. They are the most long lasting nail colors I have used till now and they are available in wide array of beautiful colors. Highly recommended brand for nail paints.

So here are the pictures….

Sephora by O.P.I nail color 'Hi Def'

Karwachauth night

The title might seem unfamiliar to a lot of you so just to let you know that it is the name of an Indian

festival, where the wife keeps a fast (no food, no water) for one entire day to ensure well-being, prosperity

and longevity of her husband. So, these are just a few pictures of my look from that day and I hope you

like it!

*Like/comment on the post if you would like to see a tutorial for this look. 🙂

Hey you makeup enthusiasts!

First of all, I would like to apologize for the unexpected delay in publishing a new post because a lot has happened this past week which left me with no time to do something new. Although, I would share a picture of the products I purchased over the weekend and I am super excited to post a new tutorial for you guys. I am going to be doing a wear-to-work/everyday look tutorial. This tutorial was requested by a very dear friend Sowmyatta Bharadwaj.

So guys thank you for being so patient and I promise that the next post will be worth the wait.
