Just bought these babies from the Tibetan market, Bangalore

They are the absolute essentials- a pair of black bellies with a little glitter for that glimpse of ‘bling’. These are my favorite for work wear, that transform into lounge wear by the night – your absolute BFF if you wanna head out straight from work for an evening out with your buddies.

Now these I call – ‘She wolf’.

Bring em out and set it free -just like how Shakira puts it! And the bow on top gives a nice feminine touch. Perfect for your day out and ohh-so-very-comfortable. So go on and try some quirky shoes! Set some new trends!

DIY workout!

Okay people!

Summers just around the corner…the question is what are we doing about it????

I’m pretty sure all you pretty ladies wanna show off your curves this summer! (I know I do!). I’ve been working out religiously day in and day out, pushing my body (trust me it aint easy!) doing my aerobics and toning exercises. Just takes 30 mins and 10 more to do the toning exercise. I’m gonna share the video I follow- super fast cardio aerobics workout that i came across to help you tone your entire body and burn the access fat. And a couple of toning exercises and you can finally buy yourself that sexy bikini you’ve bin dying to try on!!! All you need is some space and a good pair of shoes! Turn on your fav dance music and burn it up!! (my personal recommendations check out my Youtube – Aerobics Mix http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIwH7XSv48gfD49Snda2aS3OwyaVyGqvY&feature=mh_lolz i keep updating it every now and the  )

Its gonna be hard the first couple of days but the second you see your clothes gettin loose or the ones that didnt fit you start fitting you perfectly; you’re never giving up exercising! Keep changing the music or the videos to keep it interesting or you can ask your friends to join u!  Its gonna be a workout party!

FYI this does not mean you can eat all the calories you want! Try and substitute the junk with some dry fruits /juices/ fruits and salads and dont forget to keep yourself hydrated! My friend always said keep a day in the week where you can indulge all you want! You can totally do that without giving up your cravings, but remember you gotta work out harder the next day 😉

This has definitely been working for me for the past two months I can finally feel my ass and abs gettin all toned up! Feels so gooooood! I can see those sexy curves I’ve been dying to show off. Gonna Keep you guys updated on my progress! (PICTURES YES!!!)

And I wanna know how its going for you guys! keep me posted!

So all the Beachbums out there, get your bums moving!!! Give it all you can and you wont regret a bit!

Suncreen!! – Lóreal UV Perfect SPF 50

Thinking of heading to the beach?? Fun in the sun and sand in your pants?? What is that one thing you should always put on(while stepping out to anywhere, mind you, and not just to the beach) Hehehe, well, you guessed right, Sunscreen! So let me jump right into it and give you a short review of one of my must-haves – The Lóreal UV Perfect, 12 hour long lasting UV protector in Transparent skin.

L’Oreal UV Perfect – What it says

 

What I love about it

1. Never breaks me out in spite of me having super oily, super sensitive skin

2. Noticed a more clear skin tone after about a month of using it.

3. A moisturizer is not required, I find this heavy enough.

4. Skin remains oil free even after 6 hours or so.

5. Has a nozzle(no spillage/wastage) and comes in a nice sturdy plastic bottle

6. No streaking/oxidizing even after hours of wear.

 

What I dislike about it

1. Gives a slightly dewy appearance(highly sought after by a lot of people, but my personal preference is matt skin, always!)

2. 30ml of product for Rs. 499

 

Also to note is that this product comes in many different variants – Transparent skin, Anti dullness and Even Complexion. Even complexion is slightly tinted and may appeal to people looking for a tinted moisturizer. I am yet to try Anti dullness.

Ps. I am quite clueless as to the lack of this product’s popularity. It is such a great product and yet the fuss around it seems minimal. Most people are clueless that such a product exists and stumble on it only in sheer desperation.. Sigh..
