Nykaa Earl Grey Tea Cake and Lychee Delight

Nykaa Earl Grey Tea Cake and Lychee Delight

There is something about grey. They works as neutrals and still manages to stand out. They work well with almost every color. While you can get grey clothing easily, grey nail polishes are not that common. For long, MUA Koala Bear has been my go-to grey nail polish but the formula was not perfect. Now, I have these.  

I got both of them in my Nykaa haul. (Hope you have seen it)

The Classic Comeback: Style the Vintage Handbag Like A Pro




The Vintage Handbags are the ultimate comeback from the last century, a classic fashion statement that’ll be distinctively yours, for not many can put up with its age-old charms.

So while you go opting for that classic vintage piece of yours, keep in mind a few of these style hacks to pull off that vintage appeal!

Accessorizing the right way 

While sporting a Vintage ladies bag can be a tricky affair, accessorizing it right can totally amp up your look. Opt for a statement accessory that compliments the style & tone of your bag, probably even match up with the embellishments, maybe jewelry or scarves, a pair of sunglasses to go & so much more, balancing the art of doing it right. Not only will it look subtly purposeful, but it'll also be the perfect blend of vintage & modern – top to toe.

Top Bridal styling lessons from Bollywood

Bollywood has been our stylopedia for generations. B-Town beauties and their flawless fashion avatar have kept us hooked for years. Especially, when it comes to special occasions, one looks up to the Bollywood divas for styling tips. In the wedding season, every eye is on soon to be hitched Bollywood damsels. And why not! They are the ones who set the style trend for the brides-to-be. So here’s the B-town look book to pick up some dazzling fashion hacks for your wedding. 

Vidya Balan kept it a glittery affair with gold

Crimson brides love to indulge in their passion for gold jewelry. And we know, it’s something they can’t help! After all, the grand wedding procession is bland without the yellow metal. Vidya Balan truly represented the love of Indian brides for intricate gold jewelry. Decked in gold jewelry, she kept it vibrant yet understated. While Ms. Balan wore multiple strands of gold jewelry, she kept her matching earrings relatively subtle.

If your preference also lies with gold jewelry for your wedding day, go for designs with a modern twist. You don’t need to ditch traditional styles to embrace the contemporary ones, but the blend of both will work wonders. Online jewelry shopping platforms like CaratLane.com have several modern designs of gold jewelry in its stock to allure young brides.

This November, My Envy Box created a box with handmade products. Neither the box has a large number of products, nor it has high-end brands, but it does have simple products handmade by small brands. These labels are tough to source. Let's see which products made into the box.

Innisfree Haul from Mumbai



After a certain chain of events, I found myself right out the Innisfree store at 10 in the morning. I stopped and stayed there. Why? Because I saw the ad of cushion foundation though the net shutter of the store. I stayed there because I wanted cushion foundation for long. I found The Face Shop ones in Bali, but none of them were of my skin color. But, I had hope that things were going to change at Innisfree in India.

So, after waiting for an hour, I found them opening the store. I made a beeline to the cushion foundation section. To my surprise, they offered customizable cases! Could things have gone any better? Yes. They were offering two free hand creams on the purchase of cushion foundation. 

And the best thing - I found my shade in the formula I wanted.

Keeping my fingers crossed that it works for me.

Empties: The Hotel Edition

Empties: Hotel Edition


I am guilty of not doing empties post as much as I should have. But, I have been travelling way too much this year. I am away from home and living in hotels for about three months in a row now. Thankfully, tomorrow I will be going back to Kolkata. While I pulled out thing to pack, I discovered all these things that I finished during this time. This is not the exhaustive list, but you will get the idea. I discovered something new and fell in love with things that were there forever.

Just Herbs Haul

Just Herbs Haul


Inspired by the great effects of Japakusum, I decided to try more products with Hibiscus (Javakusum) in it for my hair. There are not many choices available. My search ended with Just Herbs. So, I picked that and some of my other favorites.

I discovered Just Herbs long time back in 2013. My first product was Just Herbs Silksplash Neem-Orange Rehydrant Ayurvedic Face Wash (Rs 345 for 100ml). It changed my thought about the brand. It was just perfect with organic ingredients and their conscience towards nature. Even now when anyone with oily combination skin asks for face wash recommendation, I blindly point them to this genie in a bottle. You will appreciate it more if you have acne prone skin. The facewash is 98.2% natural. You can read the complete review and other details here

Encouraged by the love I got from JH Silksplash, I ordered several other products from JustHerbs' website. (Haul here). Not everything was good, and most products got over unreviewed or unused. But, I did found another gem. A clay mask with roses that not only calms skin but also removed tanning. It is Just Herbs Petalsoft Antitan Rose Face Pack (Rs 445.00 for 150g). Complete review here.

And as both of them were currently missing in my stash, I added those two to my cart as well.

Matcha Tiramisu, Black Cherry Pie, and Black Squid Ink Matte Nail Polish Swatch and Review


I am on my matte phase now. You have seen the things I ordered from Nykaa, and everything is matte. I am loving the Nykaa So Matte lipsticks. Along with those, I also purchased these nail paints. While the matte effect attracted me what made the difference between 'Add to Cart' and 'Buy Now' was the shades. Otherwise, I could have just got a matte top coat :D

I hear the word ‘matte’, and I am running at the with the arms open wide. When I saw these new lipsticks on Nykaa’s website, I had to give them a try. There are eight shades to choose from, and I picked the four colors that I love them. The swatches on Nykaa’s website does justice neither to the color nor the formula.

Nykaa Haul and Freebies

Nykaa Online Shopping Haul


Remember my tryst with matte black nail polish? Well, I had to order it online, and I landed on Nykaa. Then, I discovered that they had launched new lipsticks. I also checked some of their matte and glossy nail polishes. I was hooked. One thing led to another and here I was with a bill mounting up to around Rs 3500. I just added another item to make it just over Rs 3500 so that I could get the pink tassel bag. They also sent another pink and gold pouch.

Festive High October Fabbag 2016

Diwali is over. Now, I am back after being pampered by my mom-in-law and sister-in-law during this festive weekend. I reached my hotel late yesterday night and then I got a call from reception, "Ma'am you have two parcels as well." Ahh bliss. The fun of opening packages brings in life even inside the sleep deprived me who has been traveling for the whole day.

One of the packages was the Festive High FabBag. I love each of them. The bag is festive inspired - gold pouch like case with flip cover with magnetic closure. Now, let's explore what came inside:
