My MAC Eye Shadow Quad

With so many brands launching new products every month or so we tend to forget our trusty old brand – MAC. While I have a lot of products from MAC, I hardly own any of their eye shadows. I have 2 MAC eye shadows in those single pots that I barely use – bought randomly. I prefer eye shadow palettes as compared to single eye shadows. I just think they are easier to travel with. So recently I decided to take the plunge and make build my MAC eye shadow quad, which would consist of the 4 eye shadows that go with almost everything and perfect to create a number of different looks.

Beach Bag Essentials

Last weekend my husband and I were in Goa for our anniversary. Even though It was a short 3 day trip we had a lot of fun. From gobbling down sea food like there is no tomorrow to chilling at the beach shacks, partying, relaxing spa sessions, dancing with a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary, it was all great. We also tried some places this time and loved them. We also saw a movie because we had some time before our flight back to Delhi. On this trip I carried with me a small cross body bag to keep my essentials. The bag is from Zara. It was the perfect size, neither too small nor too big. It fit everything nicely and also it went perfectly with all my outfits. Read on further to see what was in my bag.

Buying a gift for a guy is the most difficult thing to do, or at least for me it is. My husband is very picky and most times he is content with what he has, it makes me go mad. Most of you might have already bought gifts for your boyfriends or husbands. But for those who still haven’t, here is a list of items that you can get some inspiration from.

At Home Manicure Routine

A well-groomed, polished set of nails go a long way in making your appearance look more ‘put-together’. But that doesn’t mean you have to make frequent, weekly trips to the salon, even though getting a professional mani-pedi is one of my favouite treats to myself. I wish I could get my nails done professionally as often as I would like to, but with such a busy schedule, it gets difficult and not to mention, expensive. You can get a perfect manicure at home too with just a few steps and products. In the past month or so I have been giving my nails a little bit of extra attention, as I feel the winter has been drying out my cuticles.

January Favorites

I cannot believe how fast this month flew by. It was just a few days back when I was putting my 2015 favorites list. And here I am now, writing about my January Favorites. I don’t have too many makeup items this month, but more of skincare products. Delhi wasn’t too cold this year, but I still felt the need to hydrate my skin more than what I usually do. So here are the products I have been loving in January:
