Fun Saturdays Vol.91 : 5 Random Things


Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a bit here. I went to visit my parents after a long time and even though I had plans of posting from my hometown, I ended up barely working at all! Many of you mentioned that you miss my Fun Saturdays post so I’m reviving this series after a long gap! Hopefully from here on we can make this a regular weekly feature!


Fun Saturdays 91


1. How was your week?

I spent the week with my parents in my hometown (Bhopal). I was visiting after a long time soย it was really nice. I also spent time with my grandparents and cousins who I hadn’t met in a while. Bhopal was so much colder than Mumbai is in the winters but it was a good trip overall.


2. Do you have any beauty resolutions for 2017?

Yes! In skincare, I want to use more of natural brands and be more aware of the ingredients I’m using in my products. In makeup, I want to experiment more with color and edgier makeup looks! I’d also like to incorporate more drugstore makeup in my tutorial so that my looks are more accessible and easy to recreate.


3.ย What did you have for breakfast today?

I was feeling really lazy this morning so just has a few biscuits ๐Ÿ˜›


4. Your latest beauty/fashion purchase?

My mum and I picked up a few things from Colorbar and L’Oreal on my trip home. I picked a few nail paints (new launches), a lipstick and a few lip liners from Colorbar while my mum got an eye shadow palette and a blush fromย L’Oreal along with eye liners. I’m on a major decluttering drive these days so I helped my mum clear out her old and expired beauty products. This left her with no eye shadows and blushes to wear for special occasions so we got a few things to fill in the void. In terms of fashion, my mum also gifted me two gorgeous chikan kurtas along with some ethnic earrings. I can’t wait to wear them!


5. What’s on your playlist right now?

I’ve been liking soothing instrumentals lately. I like relaxing, meditation music, especially with sounds of nature.



I tag all of you to answer the questions in this post :

1.How was your week?

      Hi Kiran, for primer, I would suggest the NATIO Mineral primer. Its really good for dry skin and gives a nice glow as well. For foundation, I would suggest the Fresh Nude Foundation by The Body Shop.

    Spending time away from work to relax and unwind is a great way to start the new year, imo, especially with friends and family. We are definitely glad to have you back, though!

    My resolutions revolve mainly around skincare as well, along with reorganizing my makeup collection. ๐Ÿ™‚
