I am slowly getting used to the morning glow that is noticeable enough for my personal trainer to comment that my skin "looks good". May be she assumed its due to her workout recommendations, but I know its all because of this little bottle of beauty oil that I have been using for six weeks! Gym is the only place where I rush for in the morning (without any makeup) and every time I look at my face while training, I am happily surprised at the dewy look, which is totally due a healthier skin and I have to give all the credit to this product.
Today I am sharing a very special product that helped my skin in more ways than I expected. It's the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil.

It feels like ages since I last saw green grass and its so hard to keep waiting for this city to get green. To make myself feel positive, I planted petunias indoors from seeds because I loved how they performed in my yard last summer and hope I can get some results (fingers crossed). I have been highly unsuccessful in growing anything indoors, but the outdoor conditions are so bizarre - its windy, sunny, 11 degrees, snow showers, dry and feels cold enough for a jacket - all at the same time! Its hard for me to survive, let alone tiny baby seeds!
And my skin! Ahh it's freaking out!! I have been so fortunate to be using some of the most wonderful products that I loved this whole month and then the dry weather made my skin so flaky..those products seems to be giving up. Like, I can literally hear my night serum say "WTF! Your skin was great last night..what happened during the day?!" The only area that still hasn't chapped is my lips. Thank goodness for the launch of so many lip oils that makes it a bit more bearable and of course I slather Nivea cream everywhere to protect my skin.
I have also started to enjoy ViPR and Hatha Yoga at my gym and I try to never miss my class, however today I did. I ended up at the park for a brisk walk and of course I had to wear my waterproof eye makeup because it could have snowed rained. I almost always wear my waterproof mascara and eyeliner now because I can remove it in a breeze, thanks to this amazing product from VICHY Canada. I have loved almost every VICHY product and I couldn't wait any longer to share this with you.
I believe in the magical powers of a primer and there isn't a day when I'm not using one. Since my skin tends to lose its moisture faster than normal skin people, I rely on a good primer to lock in moisture and keep foundation looking fresh. While the silicone-y, slippery feel of primers may turn off some of you (including myself), the benefits definitely outweigh the 'feel of it'.
Today, I am sharing a newly launched primer by Estee Lauder. It's called The Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer which is designed for all skin types. It instantly smooths out skins' texture for an even makeup application that also look great in pictures. Lets find out more...
It seemed like a partied really hard after the valentine's weekend but truth is that I got completely consumed in family activities and meet and greets. Its so nice to be able to reach out to people, say hellos and some good byes, sing birthday songs and just live life as it happens without much planning. I am quite a planner though and I love to keep things organized, but sometimes being off schedule has its own merits. I am also reading a thriller, The Passenger by Lisa Lutz and its quite a compelling read. Amidst all this, its hard to keep up with facials or skincare and there are some products I always count on when I am not up with my schedule - Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask is at the top of that list.
Its a really long name for a wonderful mask that does more than what it mentions on the packaging. At least for me :)
Happy Valentine's Day you all!!
I decided to share this bottle of perfume I got, just in time for today's celebration and also Hershey's Kisses. Come on! Who doesn't crave milk chocolate today? And a flirtatious and feminine scent that reminds me of my early 20s? Bring it on.
Sometimes its legit to be self indulgent, enveloping yourself in a cloud of fragrance, walking like you are a million bucks, without worrying about the possible judgements, only because, someone chose you. Because there is someone who loves you, makes your heart flutter and inspires you to become a better version of yourself, every single day. So what if there is one out of 365 days to celebrate it. Isn't it worth a celebration everyday?
So, this perfume is definitely something I would have never purchased myself. I stay away from sweet scents because they 'feel' immature. However, there is something different about this one.

If you love the sultry black kajal look but find it too dramatic for everyday, then here is a gorgeous, deep, dark brown shade that promises a softer, doe eyed look! It is my favorite eye liner for almost 2 years and counting and I love this shade on my big, black eyes.
