Being a Bride's Maid - Style 17



Recently 2 of my friends got married to each other and I decided to sport a saree for the d-day!!! My mom gifted me this saree earlier this year. I loved its color. 

Technically speaking it has multi color striped warp and all green weft. So the stripes are visible but extremely subtle. I loved the subtle look. The saree is slightly stiff and makes me look a bit heavier than I am actually!
You do know I love all things golden and shimmery and the golden print on top of it was just fine. A bit more than this would have made the saree gaudy, but this was just fine. 
The necklace is the same as the one I wore on my own Wedding Reception and the mangalsutra & blouse are the same as I wore here. I've shown this bag already here
Yeah, I know I look a bit tired. Somehow forgot to shoot before we left for the wedding, so these shots were taken at 12 midnight, after 8 hrs including 4 hrs of travel! So yeah, the tiredness shows on my face...

More Lip Balms!!!



You’ve always known my craziness for lip balm. You’ve already read my posts here, here, here, here and here. 2 more additions - Berry lipbalm of The Nature’s Co and Cherry Lip Balm of Himalaya Herbals.  
If you’ve already read my earlier posts, you’d know, I hate applying petroleum jelly on my lips. It gives a very blocked, yucky feeling personally! Both these lip balms do not contain petroleum jelly and that’s a great relief...
The Himalaya Herbals lip balm is called the Strawberry Shine Lip Balm. It has the Strawberry Seed Oil and Apricot Kernal Oil. It is a stick packaging and the content is a dark pink stick of 4.5 gm priced at Rs.120. 
Though it says it gives a glossy shine, it doesn’t. Atleast when compared to Nivea, this doesn’t, it just gives a tint. The lips are left moisturized for a long time, however not as good as Intensive Moisturizing Lip Balm. Its good if you love Cherry Flavour, if you’re looking for a tinted lipbalm and you’re lips aren’t too dry. 
The Nature’s Co came in a cute packaging of little heart shaped plastic box, as a part of the Beauty Wish box. However the original packaging is a super cute colorless, transparent, cube shaped tub! Its a light pink lip balm, that’s tint-less on the lips. Its good and hydrating. I've been using it as my night time balm. Its priced at Rs.225 for 10ml.
Both the lip balms, do not have a SPF factor, which is bad. I always said - my part of the world has 3 seasons - hot, hotter and hottest. Its December already and now climate is really cool at around 26-28 deg Cel in midday. At many places, even in India, this would be termed ‘hot’... So, I’m always looking for things that protect me from sun - body lotions and face lotions are aplenty. But hair care and lip care that protect from sun - too few to choose from, if at all there are any??? The Nature’s Co and Himalaya Herbals - are you listening?????

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Facewash - A Review



Indians know the speciality of Neem & Turmeric way too well. Its been a part of the Indian culture for very very long. The antibacterial & antiseptic properties of Neem & Turmeric has been a part and parcel of the kitchen remedies and home medication that our granny-s and mum-s have been doing since long. Almost every house hold had a neem tree and it was also worshipped as a goddess!  Our granny-s have been having turmeric chunks in their bathrooms always. They  used no soap, they used wheatgerm for body and turmeric for face, instead of soap.... Now, that’s way too much evidence of the goodness and medicinal properties of Neem & Turmeric. 
This face wash of Himalayas has exactly these 2 as the main ingredient and should I even say how much I love it. The smell is great. I did wonder how it tasted, coz neem is very sour. No, I did not try to taste it! 
It comes with a transparent tube packaging with a green flip cap. And I love that orange rim just below that flip cap. An awesome contrast! The facewash itself is a translucent green gel and is meant for all skin types. It doesn't make the skin dry and cleansing it very very good.
If you’re planning to buy this, I’d definitely recommend, go for the Foaming Facewash packaging of the same variety, coz that comes with a pump! The foam clears up the skin faster than lathering the gel yourself. However it comes also in a cute Rs.15 pack for 15ml, perfect for OTG!!!

Himalaya Herbals Body Lotions - A Review



How much can I swear (in a good sense) about this cocoa body lotion of Himalaya Herbals??? Well, my first pack of 400 ml just got over!!! My? Well, not mine exactly. Read on...
Well, Himalayas has this excellent range of body lotions. More than me, my mom swears by it. She has a very dry and super sensitive skin. Even a mosquito bite shows severe reaction on her skin and guess what, this Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion for Extra Dry Skin has become her HG Body Lotion!!! Her skin has got so supple and so soft these days after using up a biiiiig pack of 400ml!!! Even the dry skin at elbows have become much better...
She is so so happy with this, that she’s recommending it to everyone she meets, above 45 - 50 yrs of age!!! At that age, when skin starts to lose its natural moisture & elasticity, this lotion definitely does wonders... 
The smell is yummy. If you’re a chocolate lover like me, you can’t resist this. The color is not white, its slightly brownish.... Though its thick in consistency, this doesn't make you feel greasy and doesn't block the pores... The main ingredients are Cocoa Butter & Wheat Germ.
The other version is Nourishing Body Lotion for Normal Skin. This one has Aloe Vera & Winter Cherry as main ingredients. As the brand claims, this is very good for Normal Skin, and may not be really enough if you have a dry skin. This is pretty much good enough for me.  This one is off white in color and its smell is fruity.
They both come with the typical green & white plastic packaging with a flip cap. And ofcourse, Himalayas always comes with the ‘Not tested on Animals’ seal which I totally love about it!

On a Casual Date - Style 33



While shopping for something else, I spotted this beautiful fabric with digital print of roses, hand painted leaves etc. I liked it so much that I just bought it. When I bought it I had no clue of what it was gonna be. The fabric was a rayon fabric (feels like cotton, looks like polyester, basically raw material of cotton (natural) & prepared like synthetic).

Bringing it home, I decided to make a skirt for myself. Most of my knee length skirts were gone and I really needed some new. Well, the skirt came out fluffy as I wanted it to!!! What do you think...

 Top: Inkfruit
Skirt: Bhushavali
Shoes: Globus
Rose Necklace: Made by me.
I made this pendant when I was in college. That was the first time I was working with m-seal and I made this rose. Painted it with pearl acrylic colors and stuck it on the palm leaf woven mat toy.... When I saw the roses on the skirt, I got reminded of this piece and wore it!
