Smells good!! – Review of my favourite Body Mists

Hi Ya’ll,

What does summer remind you of? If your answer is loads of sweat and foul body odor, you are at the right place.
I feel refreshing when I use body mist, especially in this summer heat. It helps mask our sweaty humanly scent and also leaves us feeling cool. Over the past few months I have tried many body mists.
So I decided to write a blog about these body mists and sharing details of which ones I like the best and why.

IMG_5964.JPGPSX_20170718_233417.jpgIMG_5963.JPG

1. Moringa body mist by The Body Shop –

This was the first body mist that I ever bought. The subtle, delicate fresh floral smell of the body mist is refreshing, especially when used early morning after shower. I love that it does not have a sweet smell or an alcoholic scent to it. The fragrance lasts for 1-2 hours, there is a light hint of smell for longer period of time.
Recommended for those who like subtle smell based body mist.
Now that we have covered the smell of the body mist, here are some details about packaging – It comes in a transparent glass bottle so try not to drop it :). The nozzle for spraying is of very good quality and works properly.

100 ml bottle is priced for 795 Rs

2. Beautiful day body mist by Natural Bath & Body –

It has a sweet floral smell with a cooling sensation. I do wish that the smell would last longer (at best the smell lasts for an hour).
Packaging– It comes in plastic bottle. I had received a sample size product in my fab bag. The nozzle for spraying came off within a few days.

200 ml for 325 Rs
Rating 2.5 on 5img_6000.jpgimg_6001.jpg

3. Oriental body mist by Streax –

I wanted to compare economical body mist to the other options in the market. So I bought this one as it had really good reviews from customers on Amazon.
As name suggests, it has oriental smell (unique blend of warmth and sensuality). I find the smell pleasant. I could smell hints of musk, vanilla and jasmine in the body mist, because of which I use it as a deodorant.
Those who like oriental smell should give it a try.
The smell lasts for 2-3 hrs.
Packaging- The body mist comes in purple plastic bottle that you can carry in your purse. The nozzle for spraying is of good quality.

100 ml for 188 Rs

4. Nargis body mist by Forest Essentials –

This is my favourite one. Cooling sensation when you apply the body mist is amazing. The body mist has a powering sweet and fresh smell of Nargis. This feminine body mist is recommended for ladies who love refreshing strong floral scent and the smell is long-lasting. The only thing bad about this product is that it is expensive.
Packaging -The bottle comes in a transparent plastic bottle that you can carry in your purse. The nozzle for spraying is of very good quality.

100 ml for 1895 Rs
Rating 5 on 5IMG_5990.JPGIMG_5994.JPG

5. Forever 16 body mist by NewU –

The body mist captures a 16-year-old girl’s spirit (pun intended!).
It has a sweet fruity smell. It is perfect for teenage girls or for those who are young at heart. The only problem is the sticky sensation left behind when you apply the mist.
The smell is long-lasting.
Packaging- It comes transparent plastic bottle and the nozzle for spraying is sturdy and is great value for money.

250 ml for 399 Rs
Rating 3 on 5img_5979.jpgIMG_5984.JPGIMG_5983.JPG

6. Luscious Bloom body mist by NewU –

The body mist is perfect for day-to-day use with its combination of musky and floral fragrance.
I like the fact that the smell is not overpowering. Again the initial sticky sensation when applying the body mist may be unpleasant to some (the sensation fades away).
The smell is long-lasting.
Packaging- It comes transparent plastic bottle and the nozzle for spraying is sturdy and is great value for money.

250 ml for 399 Rs

Let’s Patch Things up-Part 2

In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.

screenshot_2016-04-14-18-39-59-1

  1. Trendy Bags:-

Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.

Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.

Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have  also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.

2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-

80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.

Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up.  You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.pilled-up6c366f77f17ed0ccc2a02598278687db

3. Shoes:-

Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.

DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.tendencia-parches-zapatillas-renzo-costa-blogScreenshot_2016-04-17-10-28-54-1.png

February favourites 2017

Hey Everyone,

Its the beginning of a new month, that means its time for me to share my absolute favourite products of the previous month 🙂

February was a month of new launches. A lot of brands released some amazing products. So, makeup and skin care departments is stocked with a great deal of stuff to try on.

The best thing about all the products mentioned below is that they are very affordable and easily available.2017-03-06_17.32.52.jpg

1.PAC Cosmetics Big Eyes Magical Mascara :-

This dual wand mascara has become my current obsession. I am addicted to it. The mascara comes with 2 wands on its either ends. One is a normal thick wand, which is resembles the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. The other wand is a thin and perfect for your lower lash line.

Its great to see these Indian brands coming up with such good quality and affordable makeup. PAC cosmetics has really surprised me their recent launches and I am looking forward to try them all.img_2151IMG_2161.JPG

2. Pins and Patches from Ginger:-

In my previous blog post I talked about the recent trend of pins, patches, badges and brooches. Lifestyle stores included many sets of pins and patches in their latest collection and of course a bought quite a few of them. 🙂

These pins are marked at the price of Rs 199 for a set of three. Its always cool to mix and match them to create your own style and who does not want to stay on trend.img_2122

3. Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose water:-

I have been using this skin care delight for a few months now.  Rose water is the best natural toner known to mankind. Kama Ayurveda very cleverly have taken advantage of this fact and placed some distilled rose water in a spray on bottle.

Another great thing about this product is that it comes in a travel size bottle. Whenever you feel fatigued just spray on some rose water and you will feel refreshed instantly. Trust me guys, I have tried it and it works. I also mix it with my face pack for great results.IMG_2125.JPGIMG_2130.JPG

4. L.A girl Pro conceal HD high definition concealer:-

OH MY GOD. This is  the best concealer ever. This is not one of those hyped products that turn out to be good for nothing. All the beauty gurus swear about it.

This concealer has a brush at the end which makes the application and blending very easy.  It is Crease-resistant, has opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture.

The best part about it is that its easy available on Nykaa and amazon and is very affordable.IMG_2163.JPGIMG_2170.JPG

5. B Blunt High Definition Curl Defining Leave-In Cream :-

Curling my hair have always been a problem for me. My hair were always a frizzy mess and the curls never stayed in place. The B Blunt Curl leave-in cream changed it all. It enhances curls & waves and also tames frizz.

The very cute pink bottle with a pump just makes things more attractive and convenient. I have been using this leave-in for the last 2 weeks. The nozzle has a lock system, so it’s travel friendly and does not release a lot of product.IMG_2183.JPGIMG_2189.JPG

6. NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in the shade BLACK CHERRY:-

I remember those times when dark red shades were only for grannies. Now, berries are the bold new thing. This NYX extra creamy lipstick has become my go to favourite. The lipstick lasts for around 12 hours and the formulation is super creamy. IMG_2131.JPGIMG_2132.JPGIMG_2135.JPG

This is it!! These are my favourites from the month of feb. Do let me know in the comments if you have tried any of them.

Summer festival look and essentials

Hello everyone,
Summer is here and it’s the festive time!! We all love fashion, music and a mix of all that jazz.
I bring to you all the essentials that you need to look fabulous and chill at a summer music festival.

1) Sunnies:-
It’s summers and the sun is shinning high. I’m sure you girls want to enjoy this season instead of walking partially blinded in the sun. Wear a cool pair of sunglasses preferably a one with bright and colourful frames. They protect you from UV rays and are the coolest accessory available.

image

2) Caps/Hats:-
Hats and caps are the cutest head accessories possible. There are a huge variety, designs and colors available to match any possible outfit. It also shields you from the harsh harmful sun rays.

image

3) Footwear:-
Your feet need all the rest they can get as you have to do a lot of walking. Choose your most comfortable pair of heels or nice boots. Wedges or block heels would be a very good option

image

4) Accessories:-
The best accessories for a summer festival are hats and sunglasses as discussed earlier. If you are all about accessories go for a bunch of bracelets and a choker. Don’t go for a statement piece of jewellery as it would be hot and not comfortable at all.

image

5) Clothing:-
The temperatures are going to be hitting the roof so it’s the perfect time to pull out those shorts, skirts, backless tops and short dresses. A cute little flowy Bohemian dress would be great for the day. For colors it would be better to go for whites and pastel colors. Don’t go for dark colors as they absorb a lot of heat.

Also remember to keep yourself hydrated as this is the only thing that will keep you pumped up the entire day.

THREE WAYS TO STYLE A LONG MAXI SIDE SLIT TOP!!

Hey everyone,
I bought this cool Long maxi side slit top from FAB ALLEY and I simply love how versatile it is. You can just go crazy styling this top.

In this post I’m going to style this top in three different ways. So, let’s get going…(before I start, I would like to let all of you know that this post is not in collaboration with any brand)

1) AS A TOP-

In this look I paired the top with simple denim shorts that I bought from VERO MODA. I chose to wear a pair of sequence sneakers with it. To complete the look I wore a simple thin beaded necklace. This is a great look for a brunch or a movie or just a fun day out with friends.

Here are the details of the first look:-
Top- FAB ALLEY
Shorts- VERO MODA
Shoes- MAX FASHION INDIA
Necklace – LIFESTYLE

2) AS A DRESS-

In this look I simply made the top look like a belt by wearing a thin waist belt over the top. If the slit is too high for you, you can always use safety pins.
This dress can be paired with heels to give it a night gown feel. As you can add in some bling to boost your swag.

Here are the details of my second look:-
Dress- FAB ALLEY
Heels – JABONG
Necklace – BLING LANE
BELT- VERO MODA

3) AS A SKIRT-

Wear another top to cover the upper portion and use the lower portion as a long side slit maxi dress. I have accessoried this look with a scarf from accessorize. I tied the scarf around my neck in the form of a bow. This is a perfect date look.

Here are the details of my third look:-
Top- H&M
Skirt- FAB ALLEY
Scarf- ACCESSORIZE
Heels- JABONG

My favourite date Look !!

Hey everyone,

It’s never just dinner when you going to meet someone you are trying to impress. It is the second date when you want to be fabulous but not look like u r trying to hard. In that case go for this particular look!

image

So, here is how to play it cool!!

Dress:-

Wear a short dress, preferably black!! If you wear a Gaun it will be trying to hard. Don’t make it formal. Keep it as casual as possible. Black is the perfect choice of color as it is good for every occasion and makes everyone look perfect.

This is a little black dress is from CODE by lifestyle!!

image

Shoes:-

Wear Heels!!! A girl looks elegant, stylish, tall and invisible in heel. In order to play it cool don’t forget you are on a date and you are there to make a statement. Black or nude heels would be perfect. You can also wear red heels if you are planning on wearing red accessories.

image

Accessories:-

You want to be the one doing all the talking not your over the top accessories. Remember you are playing it cool. Wear a statement necklace or a pair of statement earrings. Wearing both a necklace and earrings can be a bad idea as it will shift all the attention to your accessories instead of your face.
This chunky bead necklace is from Accessorize.

image

Makeup:-

The makeup depends on the location of your date. Don’t forget to carry your compact and lipstick in your bag.
With this particular look I would never miss my bright red lipstick.
One of my favourite lipsticks is MAYBELLINE REBEL BOUQUET in shade REB04

image

And finally the thing you need to do is enjoy yourself!!! Have fun. Hope you find love!!

Hope I could be of some help and if you think the same don’t forget to leave a comment!!
