Chanel Haul

Who doesn't love a little bit of luxury every now and then? After months of getting rigorously stretched too thin between work, blogging and travelling, I felt it was only fair to treat myself a little. And as I have confessed in my previous post of Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer review, Chanel is my guilty pleasure. I know it is too costly, but sometimes I like to splurge on it. Plus, the quality is great. Especially while buying this brand, I never have to worry about it being worth the money because it always turns out to be. Worth the money. 

After going through the stress of moving and starting a whole new job, it kinda started showing on my skin. I felt my skin was a little dry and it had lost it's glow. A major reason could be that I had not been working out for quite some time and also not getting enough sleep or paying attention to my skin. I was using all Clinique skin regime at that time but couldn't really blame it taking the circumstances into consideration. I shall review those products as well, I guess. Anyways, not wandering off the point! The same day I went to the mall and picked up some goodies from Chanel. I had heard good things about their Hydra Beauty Creme so I decided to get that. The SA at the store also recommended the same one for my skin type and concern. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and I really do see the difference. I will review the product once I have used it for a couple of months at least so that I can be aware of all the pros as well as cons, if there are any. 

While I was at the store, I looked through their beauty range [As I always do *rolling eyes*] and spotted a couple of beautiful lipstick shades. They were too gorgeous to not try them on at least and even though I was planning to get one of these two colors, I just couldn't pick one! They were both so gorgeous and I was in love with the colors, the packaging, everything really! They glided like butter on my lips and left them moisturized and tinted in the most loveliest of pink hues! I ended up getting both of them *guilty grin* and I absolutely love love love them both. If you are at the mall, do go to the store and at least try them on, the shades are "Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color in 60 Triomphe" and "Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color in 136 Melodieuse". They are a pleasure to wear! I will swatch them both for you guys if you want. 

That's all for now! Good night!

{T-shirt/Necklace - Forever 21, Shorts - H&M, Blazer - Choies, Bag - c/o Etre, Sandals - Mango}

It's been a month since I posted an outfit on the blog. My life was upside down and I hardly had time or energy to switch on my laptop and write something/anything. Though the month was stressful and hectic, I am happy as it was all for the best. I got a new job and in a field that I wanted and I got a new place to live which I love! It's like my own little den and most of my time these days goes into decorating this little place of mine. It will take another month or so to finish the decor but I am very excited. I remember the happiness and satisfaction I got when I finished decorating my last place after 3 months of moving in. There's nothing like it! And yes, the new job! I am working now as a fashion stylist for Pernia's Pop Up Shop! The office is great and the people there are super nice and sweet. It's been a little over two weeks since I joined and over 3 weeks since I moved in. I am quite settled down now and much more at ease. I plan to devote more time to blogging now and also, I am planning something new which many of you guys have been requesting for. Guess guess? It should be ready to be introduced by the beginning of next month and I cannot wait to tell you all about it! 

On another note, how amazing is the weather these days! It's raining (which I usually hate!) and feels like Summer is gonna bid goodbye soon and Fall is my favourite!! Ah! Can't waittttt!!! And hey, did I tell you guys, I started driving! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I had been taking driving lessons from Aman. And now I have got my Learning Licence and I drive to my office everyday myself, all alone! I feel so proud, may sound a little silly as the whole world drives but trust me guys, I could never drive anything. Literally, not even roller skates or bicycle :|

P.S. - The Closeup Video that I worked on last month is out now! And I am also in the advertisement of Closeup Diamond Attraction in Filmfare and Femina(September Issue)! Super exciting!

Bed Head - “This is Me” (Selfie to Barcelona Contest!)

"TIGI Bedhead has just gone live with the This is Me campaign. The brand known for its rule breaking attitude and cheekiness along with their fun and creative hair products already have a strong online social presence globally and have begun their efforts in engaging its Indian audience by reaching out to them. 

The TIGI Bedhead – ‘This is Me’ campaign stays true to the brand values and focuses on individuality by
encouraging people to acknowledge their true self. Personalities like renowned hair stylist Savio John Pereira; psychedelic painter Sameer Hazari; pilot, surfer and skateboard maker Spandan Banerjee; fashion stylist Chandni Sareen; Imaad Shah and Saba Azad of the swing band duo Madboy/ Mink and poi dancer Sumaiya Sayed have been featured into the campaign to represent the whole idea of expressing oneself freely. Each one of these personalities have pursued their dreams which is not your orthodox career options but something much bigger and better than that, something creative, something that drives them with passion. 

This is the part that drew me in, as I am myself doing something which is not traditionally considered as a career option especially in India. I know what kind of problems you have to face if you decide to pursue your dream. I tell people (Read relatives) that I am a blogger and the reaction I get from them goes something like this "Ummm...ok. But what do you really do, as in a job?".

The campaign video shows these guys in action and speaks of the core thought behind this campaign: self-expression. The video urges people to value their identity and individualism. The message implies that every individual is the star of a show that’s their own life and they are the only one in power to make or break it. The campaign just doesn't make a statement but validates it by featuring those who exemplify its meaning and worth.

Here are a few behind-the-scenes images I got my hands on!

Along with the series of videos that are being released on Bedhead’s YouTube channel, the Bedhead – This Is Me microsite also hosts a contest asking you all to get your hair styled in a salon just the way you want to, so as to express your individuality of style and get a selfie clicked with your stylists. The winner gets to go to a Music Festival in Barcelona, the biggest party this Summer with one of your best buddies. On the side, there is another incentive to this contest by which the most voted stylist will get to win a scholarship for a course at TIGI training academy in London, UK.


So, gear up guys! You can win an all expense paid trip to Barcelona with your best buddy! Could there be anything better than this? I don't think so.

Good Luck!"
