I am always amused when people ask about my skincare, hair care and even nail care routine.

A Study in PINK // Fantasy // A Beautiful Pink ~ Colorbar

Lakme Fantasy // Colorbar A Beautiful Pink // Bourjois So Matt Frosted Finish Top Coat

Quick Quiz - What was the first thing that you thought of when you saw the title in the post? Keep the answer with you and I will tell you something at the end of this post.


I am seriously aiming to do new nail art post each week but I am lazy and you know it by now. So, I am not going to declare anything but I will try my best. I made one one Sunday night after I realized that I was still wearing the same daisy nail art from last week. I grabbed the first nail paint that I could find and the first polish happened to be Lakme Fantasy.

NOTD Pretty White DAISY NAIL ART using Maybelline Color Show Blueberry Ice

Pretty White DAISY NAIL ART using Maybelline Color Show Blueberry Ice

I made these daisies on my nails this Friday. I used Maybelline Blueberry Ice. I love the color but I skipped on buying this initially because I already had New U Celeste. So, when I discovered that it was not good anymore, I purchased Blueberry Ice. I used a random white and Maybelline Sweet Sunshine for yellow.

The Four Fountains SPA Experience // Coz Worry is a Rocking Chair - Keeps You Busy - Doesn't Get You Anywhere

Recently, Sayantini asked a few Kolkata Bloggers if we have ever been to The Four Fountains Spa. She had an invite and wished to know who else were going. I just commented – "I hope they invite me". And Sayantini being a sweet soul recommended my name. Hence, I got an invite the very next day and after re-scheduling the appointment for 3 times, I went to The Four Fountains Spa, Shakespeare Sarani (Theatre Road), Kolkata branch. The second branch in Kolkata is at Salt Lake.

Before I begin, I must tell you that this was my very first Spa visit. Few things always makes me hesitant about any spa visit – High Price ( I don’t want to spend a lot because I will be happier to spend that amount with family and friends for a small get together OR buying makeup), Hygiene (if the Spa is not very hot shot then there is always doubt about levels of hygiene), Privacy (ahem ahem), Inexperienced therapists ( I can go on and on about stories of how my colleagues went for a spa visit and returned with more back pain or fractured toe!).

So, I will try to answer all the points here.


The Four Fountains Spa Experience of Shakespeare Sarani (Theatre Road) Branch


Welcome and Décor – The Spa is designed the give utmost comfort and complete de-stress environment. The first thing you notice is the refreshing Lemon Grass aroma which you will get even before entering the premises. Lemon Grass is diffused in the entire Spa to give an uplifting feel to de-stress. Plus, lemon grass aroma is a natural antiseptic so, one more step to a hygienic environment.

Upon arrival, each guest is provide a welcome drink (Aam Panna) and asked to sit at the waiting area. Even the back of the seats are designed to provide light massage to your back as you wait for your turn.

My First Bobbi Brown // Valencia Orange 9 // Creamy Matte Lip Color // Swatch and Review

Bobbi Brown | Creamy Matte Lip Color in Valencia Orange 9 Swatch India

This post was living in my drafts folder from February first week. I click pictures, edit them and then put them in the drafts folder. Depending on how I feel after using it, I keep on adding and writing about it. But, I have no idea how I missed writing about this lovely lip color. Whereas, I use it time to time. So much for planning.....DUH! 

Enough of my blabber; now, let's talk about the lipstick. 


Bobbi Brown | Creamy Matte Lip Color in Valencia Orange 9 Review

As per Bobbi Brown's website - Bobbi's revolutionary new lipstick - Creamy Matte Lip Color combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy and moisturizing, it glides on comfortably and feels light-as-air. Not to mention that it's got staying power, too (it won't budge for 8 hours). Inspired by the looks she was creating for Fashion Week; Bobbi set out to develop the perfect color range, everything from nudes to brights to bolds. We're pretty sure you'll want more than one color.
