WEDDING IDEAS - A Customized Gift!



As I completed my Wedding Diaries series of posts, I got pretty many queries on certain aspects like saree draping, how to choose jewelry or makeup etc, MUA yes or no, etc. So I thought, why not come up with another series of posts about the tips, tricks and ideas of wedding, based on my personal experience. Well, the order in which I'm gonna write this series would random.
To begin with, customized gift. Nope, I'm not talking about what to gift as a wedding guest or as return gift. This was more like decor-ing our home after marriage and gifting to each other...... Something very special like the first gift to the beloved one...
You may have already seen my post on Arsenal tee, the team that's my hubby's fav. So I ordered that for him. From the same company, Hicustom that does customized stuff, I ordered this super cool travel coffee mug, soon after our wedding photos came in. 

I chose one of our couple pic and this super cute wordings that I found on the Hicustom site itself to be printed on both sides. The print quality was awesome. This product came in 2 colors - white and silver. I felt silver looked more classy. So I gave a silver gray jagged border for the photograph that became transparent on the print and the photograph had a jagged edging just as I wanted. You can see one edge of it on the top pic. Nope, you can't see the full pic...... :D

The product quality too was great. The heat of the liquid inside stayed hot a quite a few hours and warm for several hours. The lid was a typical twister lid, with a big and a small opening, typical like in Starbucks. The inner ring of the lid has rubber that helps in sealing the cap snugly, so heat won't escape. 
There is definitely something special when it comes to having customized products, isn't it???!!!!!!!!

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

To the Office - Style 60



Many a times, when someone goes on a vacation, they get few souvenirs for close friends & relatives, mostly a tacky printed tee. In India this habit is a bit more extensive. Whenever someone gets married, the close circle of relatives are gifted with clothing, mostly saree or salwar kameez. That's awesome, but for fashionistas, its a bit dreadful......
Readymade clothing mostly won't fit. Sarees and salwar kameez may not even relate to your taste in clothing. Sometimes I've received silk, that I don't wear. Sometimes I've received polyester that's totally unsuitable for the climatic conditions I live in. And, come on, I wear sarees and salwar kameez only on occasions. And at those times, I wanna wear something that I totally love, not something that's not even my style, just coz someone gifted that to me and they expect me to wear it on some important occasion!!!! 
But thank God, I have some friends & relatives who understand my style sense and have taken effort to gift me clothing that I totally love!!!! One was this saree that an aunt gifted, it looks rich like silk, but its pure cotton. Another was this salwar that another aunt gifted. She got the same pattern in various colors for all her niece and I was lucky to get this sandal instead of pista green or peach!!!! Another was this kurti that my friend gifted, I love the hand embroidery and the unique printing technique on it called Devoré.
This time, I was more than lucky when my SIL, sent me this awesome Peplum tee and patterned trousers from Singapore, when my MIL visited her. The color, the matching of the top & trousers, the fit, everything was perfect and spot on to my taste.... I loved it so much that I had to share it here....

Top & Trousers: Patch (Received as Gift)
N*de patent wedges: Globus
Necklace: Romwe.com c/o Ocrun.com
Bangle: Handmade by artisans of Rajasthan

While Exploring the Unexplored - Style 27



You saw my earlier post on my new awesome shoes and I had promised another post on my woodlands shoes. So, where did I wear it and with what outfit. Here it goes!
How's the location??? That's a amazing site called Gundupermbedu close to Chennai, which is a paleobotany site... Ya, I know that's a difficult terminology. Basically, Paleo means Stone Age and Botany as we all know is the study of Plants. This is an archaeologically, botanically important site with evidences of Stone Age Plants and their impressions are found in rocks! Read more about it here on my Travel Blog
 Top: Thrifted from a Flea Market in Chennai
Jean: Flying Machine
Shoes: Woodland c/o MySmartPrice.com
Sunglasses: Arrow

Most definitely, these shoes are awesome esp., when walking on cut pieces of rocks & stones with sharp edges.  The sole is made of Thermo Plastic Rubber, that withstands corrosion very well. I love the camel color and the placement of the Woodland Tree logo is so cute. Its perfect!!! I love it!!!!!

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

MySmartPrice - A New Concept



We all love online shopping. And I luuuuurve shoes! You've seen my post on my shoes!!! There are several online shopping sites that sell shoes! That's awesome. But then, now comes the trouble. With so many options in so many sites, wouldn't it be great if all the options from all the sites are in the same place. That too, now at EOSS, it would be awesome if all the offers from all the sites are listed out in the same place. That's what My Smart Price does.
MySmartPrice is a site that categorically lists out products from most online shopping sites. So, what did I do? Went there, and looked into the Shoes category. Infact even that's actually overwhelming! I further made it compact to sports shoes, formal shoes, outdoor / camping shoes, and ofcourse casual shoes! Further more, it can also be sorted or filtered according to brand, price, color, discount etc.

I actually thought of buying just 2 woodland shoes. But then, the offers in this EOSS were so damn good that I decided to go for 1 woodland and 3 with higher discounts!  That's 4 more shoes into my kitty, well, both mine & my hubby's kitty! Lolz! 
I think, I should make a follow-up of the post on my collection of shoes. Few of the shoes in the earlier post have given up and I've got quite a few new ones... Let's see.... Anyways, here are my awesome new shoes.



Shoes (from top): Woodlands, Liberty, Z Collection, Kik all from Jabong.com 

Well, one more OOTD post is coming up with the woodland shoes. Wait n watch!!!

UD N*ked Palette Dupes



CAN A GIRL HAVE TOO MANY NEUTRAL EYE PALETTES???
Well.... A perfect neutral palette is definitely necessary in every girl's makeup stash. Last year I got the Mirage Palette of Coastal Scents and I shared about it here!!! Recently I found this site called T Mart and found 2 awesome neutral palettes and really couldn't stop myself from getting them....
Guess what those palettes are called on their cover??? N*ked 2 & N*ked 3. Yup, you read that right.... They're dupes of Urban Decay N*ked 2 & 3. But on the website, they're called 12 Colors Earth Tone Eyeshadow Palette and 12 Colors Generation 3 Eyeshadow Palette. And ofcourse, they're dupes and they're just $10. So you can't expect the Urban Decay quality in this. 
The colors are similar to UD, although not the same. There are 12 colors in each palette. There are mattes, shimmers and metallics. The color names are written below each shade just like in original and they are absolutely gorgeous.
The outer tin packaging is similar to UD. But the inner plastic packaging is of poorer quality. The mirror is nothing... Its just a tin sheet and hardly reflects good enough to wear makeup. But who am I kidding??? At 1/5th the price of the original, you can't ask for more. They include a dual headed brush with a shadow brush and crease brush on either ends and they're pretty good in size to hold by hand and the bristles hold the pigment too well. 
The colors stay well on primed eyes for quite a few hours. Pigmentation is ok and you need to apply a couple coats the color to show very well. The mattes have no issues. The shimmers and metallics have fallout issues. If you see my below EOTDs, the shimmer has fallen all over below my eyes.
Here are a couple EOTD with these palettes - a very simple neutral everyday day look, a simple everyday night look with a hint of pink, and a smokey one ofcourse!!!


Guess what??? This I wore for a wedding in a sultry, summer evening and took this shot after I returned home after about 4 hrs. See, the eyeshadow hasn't budged a bit. The best part was it just didn't crease... While even many drug store brands crease, this one didn't. I'm way too happy!!!
Btw, the eye palettes in the 1st pic are Coastal Scents 88 Mirage Palette, T-Mart palettes reviewed in this post, Lakme Moondust quartet and Inglot Pearl Trio in 556...
