Products and Review – Part 2

This is the continuation of some products that I use and my views on them.

Revlon Lip Butter And L’Oreal Color Riche Balm
I have used both the products. They are tinted lip balms which give a color to the lips and yet maintain then soft and moisturized as a balm. I had Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum. It was soft and shiny and did what it was marketed to do. But for some reason my lip balm/stick just broke in half, that too after a few weeks of use. I was applying it on my lips and it just melted in half. 😦 That was so disappointing that I went and chose L’Oreal Balm the next day.

Products And Reviews – Part 1

I have used so many products over the years and have formed my own opinion. Why not share it with you guys? So, here are the products I use currently. The reviews below are mine and mine alone.

Boots No7 Cleanser
The first thing that came to my mind was Boots. The No7 brand contains various skin care products.
I have been using Boots No7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser for a while now. This is one good buy. It works really well for me, esp. during winters when the skin gets dry. It cleanses, exfoliates and moisturizers my face. My face felt so soft after one try. Only con, the muslin cloth should be run under hot water and then used to cover the face. But it does not stay hot for long. Nevertheless, I love it.

Fashion, Beauty and Make up

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Lately, I have been looking into lot of beauty blogs, make up videos. Every girl (almost every girl, but there are exceptions in every case) is interested in doing make up and wearing stylish clothes. But what makes them go for it? What is the underlying reason? I am not new to makeup. In fact, I love eye make up and am exploring on how to’s and what to’s for a long time. Same thing goes for fashion, always wanting to try new things and check out new stuff. So, what makes us all go nuts for make up and fashion? Read more of this post

Chicken Patty

I am a foodie. I love trying out new recipes (i.e if my laziness does not get in the way). I have been trying to discover a recipe for making chicken patties for burgers. After browsing around and reading a lot of recipes, I made one of my own tonight combining little bit of all. So, before I forget, I have to jot down the recipe, while its fresh in my memory.This is my twist to make chicken patties. Read more of this post

Updates and some more

Every time I update my blog, the first statement I think of writing is how long it’s been since I posted one out here. Blogs are kinda getting replaced by tweets and status updates. But blogs do exist and for every reader out there, there are blogs they would like to keep track of. The idea of writing long paragraphs on a story, an article or just like that may have been reduced to writing in tweets and hash tags, but that does not stop people like me pouring our brains out on a web page like now. 🙂 Read more of this post

TV and the City

There are a lot of series I watch and love. Actually, TV is one of the international, liked and approved time-pass. I am not new to it. Be it a movie or a series or even an animated “Tom and Jerry” types, I have my TV on and running. TV is a basic necessity nowadays, from morning news to prime time series, we all get involved in some way. I try to find new series every now and then and end up with so many options. There’s everything on there – movies, reality shows, singing and dancing idols, discovery, animal planet and of course, sports (trending recently towards Olympics). Read more of this post

Facebook Addiction

Facebook has become an important part in our lives. It is like a lifeline, a habit and an addiction. I, personally, don’t have anything against FB, I favor it but I am taking a chance now, trying to let go of it.
There are people who have opened an FB account and forgotten its existence. There are people who use it moderately, when they are free. But, there are people who begin their day with FB and end with FB too. Well, I belong to the third category. I begin my day with my iPad in one hand, toothbrush in another and trying to scroll and read through FB messages, statuses, pokes, photos, birthdays and games. It had reached a stage wherein, when I took a photo, I would check if it was good to be a profile pic, when I tried cooking a new dish, I could not wait to post the pic on FB.
So to bring all of this into control, I am trying to let go off FB and reach a stage where checking it comes secondary to all other stuff I do for the day.
It is day 2 of me going FB free, I am leaving it cold turkey. But having nothing to do, my hand itches to check it. As a solution, I deleted the FB app from my iPad. 🙂 My aim is to control FB and not vice versa. So, wish me luck.


The time is now.
