OZIVA Protein & Herbs Shake for Women Review

Hi lovely ladies ,

So I recently realized how I have been gaining so much weight and how I badly need some discipline when it comes to food. With this busy IT schedule I could not follow a proper healthy diet all the time , this is when I bumped into OZIVA Protein & Herbs Shake. It has been more than a week and I can actually see the difference it has done to my eating habits.

Why do you need Protein supplements ?

Indian food habits are predominantly Carbohydrates and lacks in Protein . This is one of the major reasons why we take a long time to tone up even thouh we are physically active. More than half of our population lacks in Protein , we should do something about it shouldn’t we?

What does OZIVA aims to achieve ?

Let me quote them ” At OZIVA we aim at solving the basic challenge faced by many people – the lack of nutrition. We have worked with nutritionists and researchers to develop the perfect, nutrition-rich products ranging from well-rounded meal replacements to high protein blends, to help tackle the problems like irregular meal timings, faulty food choices, to combat the stress of a fast-paced life among other problems that are now a part of everyone’s life. ”

How To Pair Tunic Tops TBT

Hi Everyone , since I do have lot of outfit post and seldom I put it up , the Throw Back Thursday’s post helps me achieve the same . I always get this question where people ask me how I pair tunic tops and hence this post is pretty relevant to the query.

What is the back story for this post ? Why This How to Pair Tunic Tops post?

Again this was in november around the same time I shot for Halterneck Post. This was a brunch on a rainy day and I also got to meet most of the people on my Chennai Bloggers Club.

I do not generally wear tunics as they tend to make me look fatter 😛 LOL but this one I love the color and that was the reason I got it. I paired them up with basic black legging and I was good to go.

How did I pair them ? What was the makeup done?

To be honest , I was not wearing much makeup in this one. All I had was Kohl and Liner (both in Black) . I have used Maybelline Colossal Kohl (Black) and I have used the Maybelline Super Liner (Black).

If you can see I did not even set my hair ( I know who does that right ? ) but it was fun and I got to meet my friends 🙂

Since this was not somewhere I planned to get dressed , I opted for my “going to a supermarket” look . I hope you like it and ignore my dark circles and frizzy hair please 😛

Halterneck Outfit TBT

Hi Everyone,

I am back with one more outfit post , thanks to my abundant stock of photos on my computer .

What is the back story for this post ? Why Halterneck Top?

This time I choose this because its really close to my heart one reason being that my friend Shaheen presented me this top . The second reason is that this was shot by Aperture as you all know nothing beats his creativity . Few of these are taken artistically and are beautifully edited so I had to share it with you all.

Ideally it was taken last November but as one thing or the other came up and I was not able to post them at all ( you know unending life-crisis ? THAT !!!!! ) I finally remembered that I had these and decided to share it with you all . Like I said since it was November and since it was raining , I could not take the pictures outdoor . All of them were shot inside and some of them did turn out to be perfect. This post does not have a head-to-toe picture though . I wanted my halterneck top to have all the focus and there you go.

Halterneck Outfit TBT

How did I pair them ? What was the makeup done?

I let it be as casual as possible , few things are best if they are effortless . I did opt for almost nude eyes as I was wearing MAC Ruby Woo on my lips. I opted for a red-lips are that just completes your whole look effortlessly. I did add a bit of liner just to define my eyes 🙂 And that is exactly how easy it is to pair up your halterneck top.

4 Basic Styling Tips for Men

Hello ,

Remember the poll that I took in the group ? Well here are the results .. !!! I have been always manipulating for sometime if I should write on this topic as most of you requested for styling tips for men , here we are.

So I started looking around for inspiration and then who did I bump into ?? My old friend Vetri 😀 I thought if he doesn’t define style and class then who does. Hence , these tips are indirectly through him and delivered to you guys by me 😀 how awesome is it !!!

Here are the really simple 4 styling tips for men ,lets decode :

Blaze it on :

I know a lot of you feel that adding a blazer makes you look grumpy or fat but in fact it works just the opposite.It gives you a dimension and a sharp look. You can either match it up with your pants or work with something completely contrasting.

Also , the so-called rule of not wearing brown shoes with black pants are so last season. As long as you are not wearing too many colors , they look absolutely fine.

4 Basic Styling Tips for Men

Suit- Blackberry // Shirt – levis // Pants- Louis Philippe // Watch – Fossil // Shoes – Custom made brogue

Shirt it up:

I know a lot of you guys have your closet full of shirts maybe of different colors and prints too . Check shirt being one of the most basic of all , also are the most versatile. If you like defining your shoulders but you like keeping it casual , this will work for you. Not only jeans you could pair them up with a formal shorts and they would still look classy.

4 Basic Styling Tips for Men

Shirt- Local Indian Brand // Pants- Levis // Watch – QnQ // Shoes – Adidas

Love your Office :

My excuse to go to office is to dress up , I am not joking about it !!! 😛

Like I said , check-shirts are the most versatile of all and you should stock them up as much as you can. Now, biggest fail would be wearing ill-fitted clothes which are either too big for you or too tight. Finding tailor-made office wear is the best way to impress your boss (trust me on this !! ) . Keep it simple and work with what works for you best.

4 Basic Styling Tips for Men

Shirt- Local Indian Brand // Pants- Blackberry// Watch – G-Shock// Shoes – Ruosh

Customize your traditional wear :

Ok now this is relative to the place you belong to , for people in Chennai these silk made Veshti or Mundu is pretty common ( do not call it as lungi because it is NOT lungi 😛 )

Back to the whole point , no matter what you wear just customize it to what compliments you. Lets say add a chunky watch or pair of cool sunglasses and you are good to go. Now the tricky part is generally the footwear , opt for tan shoes or sandels as they go with most of the colors .

4 Basic Styling Tips for Men

Shirt – Van Heusen //Watch – G-Shock

This is exactly why you should have a friend who kills it all.. !!!!

Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream Review

Hello everyone , I know these days I have been obsessed with hair products so much and been reviewing quite a few . I bumped into Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream sometime back and have been using it regularly. Since it is raining and the humidity is increasing day by day I wanted to review this one. Lets see if this can save us from bad hair day 😛

Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream

How to use Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream?

Using Oil-In- Cream is probably the easiest thing you could ask for .You can use it in three ways :

1.Before Wash :

Just massage it into your scalp and leave it for sometime . Just rinse it and let it dry.

2.After Wash :

This is what i prefer , it works great like a leave-in Conditioner and saves me from horrible frizz.

3.Overnight :

You could massage it into your scalp and leave it overnight . Just wash it the next day and you are good to go.

Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream

Pros and Cons Of Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream :

Pros:

  1. They are super affordable
  2. Available in every supermarket
  3. The quantity is great for the price you pay
  4. I love the fruity smell it has , wonderful
  5. It is defintely not oily and feels great on my hair
  6. Controls frizz to a great extent
  7. I did not face hairfall issues after using it (great!!!)
  8. The packaging is super cute , very travel friendly.

Cons:

  1. I guess I do not exactly have any complaints with this product , one best buy.
  2. It has alcohol contents in them , so ideally it is not very best for you hair to be left on . That is one reason why I use them like a leave-in conditioner rather than leaving them overnight .

Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream

Priced at INR 100/- for 200ml

Will I recommend Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream ?

Yes , if your hair reacts to climate changes then this is the one. I would also recommend this because its pretty affordable for the quantity you get.

Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream

Rating : 4.5/5

I have reduced 0.5 from the rating because this product contains alcohol and that is not very good for your hair.

You could buy yours in Amazon.in , I have added the link so that its easy for you all 🙂

Being An Indian Bridesmaid TBT

Hey all Indian Bridesmaid-to-be,

I am sure you have come here for inspiration because maybe your best friends wedding is on its way.Since its Thursday I was planning to show you guys my outfit that I wore for her wedding .

One of my closest friends got married and I did not shop for it . I picked up something that I already had and played with it . The fun part about today’s post is that I would be telling you guys on who did my friends makeup on her special day . Stay tuned..!!

Honestly , being a bridesmaid is hard anyways and if you are an Indian bridesmaid then don’t even ask !!!!! There are lot of jewelry , lots to decide on what to wear and how to pose for the pictures .. Argghh!!!

Since Indian wear is not my forte and not my greatest interest , I always opt for something very simple . If you had seen my previous Being a Bridesmaid series , you would know how I love dressing up during weddings . If you have not seen my previous series , here you go :

  1. Event 1
  2. Event 2
  3. Event 3

What did the Indian Bridesmaid wear this time ?

I kept the jewelries pretty simple , I focused on making my eyes as dark green as possible so as the pink in my dress doesn’t over power. I have used Ultra Matt V2 Darks Eye-shadow Pallet by Sleek Makeup which I have reviewed here .For my lips I have used Colorbar Velvet Matte in shade Blush as a tint and not a lipstick , you can view the review here . Since my hair did not set right that day , I didn’t care 😛

I kept my dress really simple as that is how I prefer it to be and the other reason would be because I did not get time to shop 😛

Lets be honest some of us have an emotional connection to the place we live and we would rather change the look of it than destroy it 🙂

You could just click on one of their categories on the page and it would direct you to a set of cool ideas . These are associated with designers who provide you free consultations. This is when I also found new ideas for my room as well 😀

Honestly, this is where the ” money” part comes in . Just buy the best furniture you can afford (in terms of quality and not only looks ) because they come for a very long time and are basically an one-time investment.

TIGI Hard Head Hairspray Review

TIGI Hard Head Hairspray is a unisex product , since lot of you do want me to review a product that can be used by men as well I have picked this up.

Since these two can be used by both men and women , they are an one time investment and are extremely versatile.

How to use TIGI Hard Head Hairspray?

Typically you should hold them about 10-15 cms away from you hair and apply them after you have roughly done your hairstyle . These stay as long as the next wash you do so as soon as you don’t need that particular hairstyle all you would need to do is take a hairwash .

Tip : To control fray hair or frizz , you could spray a little on your hairbrush/comb and comb it through before it dries off .

Colorbar Velvet Matte Blush Lipstick Review

Hi lipstick lovers,

You remember I always tell you that I would get you alternatives for everything in any product I recommend ? Today’s Review is Colorbar’s Velvet Matte Blush (04M) Lipstick which is actually a dupe of Loreal Paris Pure Garnet (Sonam Kapoor) which I reviewed recently. This Blush Shade was given to me by my friend Pavithra of Makeupmartini.com ,she felt I do not try out any other shade than Red. What surprised me was how amazing it looked on my skin-tone .

One thing led to another and I purchased Loreal Paris Pure Garnet as well as they both look very similar except a little difference in texture.

It has a beautiful wine shade which is more towards the purple-pink family than red family. I love the shine it gives , it does not have gloss or sparkles which is a relief .

Colorbar Velvet Matte Blush Lipstick Review

Pros and Cons Of Colorbar Blush :

Pros:

  1. Cheaper for the quality they provide
  2. I love the coverage it gives , just two swipes to make it dark
  3. Does have a pearly finish which I love
  4. Would look good on olive and duskier skin-tone
  5. I love the smell of it
  6. The package is sturdy and travel friendly
  7. Easily available and affordable
  8. It last for about 6 hours even after you eat or drink anything
  9. Who doesn’t like Wine shades ?

Cons:

  1. It does transfer a bit I find that annoying
  2. Though it is a matte it does have a shine to it , some peple maynot appreciate it
  3. Might look loud of fairer skin-tone
  4. Since it is loud , it might highlight your imperfections

Priced at INR 325/-

you can buy it for lesser in Amazon.in or you could browse them for more here 

Will I recommend Blush ?

I would for just two reason , one because it is pretty inside the budget and second because this color is really beautiful on Indian Skin-tone . The Colorbar Velvet Matte Blush is a perfect shade if you want to go for a wedding . For me this has become a daily wear, lets just say I love how it brightens my face up. There are very few shades that are made for duskier yellow toned skin and this one wins hands-down for the quality it gives .

Pure Garnet Lipstick Review and more

Hello Ladies ,

Welcome to one more beauty product review , I would be reviewing Pure Garnet shade from the Star Collection of Loreal Paris .This shade is popularly know as the “Sonam Kapoor” shade in India because that is how it was launched .

People who know me would know that I just adore lipsticks and I love them more if they are dark and gaudy . Would you even believe it if I tell you that I wear them to my office too ??? 😛 Yes after Ruby Woo , this is my present favorite which I would gladly wear anywhere.

This range has different shades of red which are pretty wearable , people like me who love wearing read even during day time would surely love this range. I have tried lot of L’Oréal’s lipsticks but this Star Collection range remains my favorite till date. The have launched few shades keeping the country in mind , Freida Pinto’s Red , Aishwarya’s Red and Sonam Kapoor’s Shades are unique to India . The whole idea is to find the perfect pink.

Lets just say of-late I have been hogging on Red’s and this one caught my attention . Pure Garnet is Wine Red, its deep and dark . It is a dupe of MAC Rebel but yes at a more affordable cost 😛 This color is pretty flattering on Indian skin tone , I would call it more of a burgundy shade than red though .

Pros and Cons Of L’Oreal Paris Pure Garnet (Sonam Kapoor) Lipstick:

Pros:

  1. I love the packaging , the classy black body with Sonam Kapoor’s Signature on them looks chic.
  2. This is my favorite color of all , you could wear it to the office as well if you can pull this off.
  3. I love the mild smell it has.
  4. It stays put the entire day for me and I don’t need a touch up.
  5. Don’t know if this is just me , you don’t need anything else if you have this on your face
  6. Easily available on both stores and online
  7. Adds variants to your collection of lipsticks
  8. This is a timeless shade , everyone of all age groups could wear it
  9. Suits all skin-tone
  10. I love the texture it gives , light on the lips and perfect matte.
  11. Not drying unlike retro mattes

Cons:

  1. The price is on the higher range considering that it is coming from Loreal Paris
  2. Though it suits most people , its a tricky shade to play with . I would recommend you to try it in store before them them either from the store or from any online retailer

 

Priced at INR 995/-

This is a good buy if you love adding colors to your lipstick collection

Will I recommend Pure Garnet ?

Do I look like a crazy woman who won’t ??? Obviously go for it if you do not have this shade 😀 . Yes it is on the higher side but well you can get them online for half the price 😛 (shhh!! That’s how I got it)
