Confidence – my key to freedom |  Happy 2017 !! 

I’ve always read so much about how you should love yourself first and be confident in yourself blah blah blah. I’m sure we all come across such articles a lot.

Till some time back I never really realized how much this fact is affecting my life that I , to be very frank, do not love myself !  Continue reading

My love for Journals

Hey everyone!
I’ve got quite a different post for you all today. I am a huge stationery fan/addict/junkie whatever you might like to call it. The amount of stationery I have is much much more than I or most people ‘need’. But every time I see something cute I just can’t stop myself from buying it. From cute pens, to unique mechanical pencils, to listpads and post-its with quirky quotes on them – you name it and I have it all. But today, I want to talk about the kindof journals I have and how I use them. Continue reading

BeautyfullJourney turned ‘2’!!




Hey everyone!!!!! I cant believe its been 2 years of blogging already! BeautyfullJourney just turned 2 years old on 23rd june 😀 yayyyy 🙂

I couldn’t celebrate on 23rd as I was on vacation. I went to Singapore and Bali with family, it was actually for a family friend’s birthday party and we didn’t actually sightsee or anything but it was a lot of fun and I loveeeed both the places 😀 I found Singapore better than US in terms of cleanliness, safety and development!! And Bali was awesome… it was 2 days of partying and wine and cocktails and heavenly beaches ❤ I’m missing it already! But well, I got back last night full of energy now to live this difficult thing we call ‘life’ 😛 😀 I didn’t shop much, I just bought 2 bags, and a few shorts in Bali and I bought the TBS vitamin E sorbet from Singapore dutyfree, very excited to use that 😀 I also checked out the body sorbets, they are soooo awesome, I loved them, but I didn’t buy as I saw they’ve made an appearance on the US store now and I’ll definitely get them in some sale soon 😛

I felt bad I couldn’t do a giveaway of something to celebrate the 2md birthday with you guys but you know things have been tough lately, I’ll find another reason to treat you all soon 😀

It’s a been an awesome 2 years, you all have loved me so much and I really sometimes can’t believe I’ve survived so long on one hobby 😛 but I’m still as much in love with BeautyfullJourney as I was when I started out and I hope I continue it forever 😛

Keep reading what I write my friends and I promise I’ll get better 😀

Thank you everyone :*

Something personal….

Hi everyone 🙂

I don’t know how many of you are aware that I have another blog – a personal one and have had it much before I started this one on beauty. I have not written there since quite some time. I never wished or tried for a lot of audience on that blog since initially I wasn’t too comfortable with sharing my thoughts with people, I just used to write to get the load off me as writing has always made me feel calm.

One such post is this – When loved ones die… where I shared my feelings when my grandmother passed away in 2011. I was extremely heartbroken. Today, if there’s anyone who I’d like to go back in the past and thank, it would be her! Now that my life is facing a few major 180 degree turns, I miss her all the more!

Also, I’ll definitely share these life changes with you once they’re 100% final!

When I saw this video that I wrote about in my previous post. I felt so touched and missed my Dadi all the more as I really wish I could have been more open about my love for her as she just went away too suddenly. So, even before L’Oreal wanted me to share information about their campaign with my readers, I knew I’d be writing about this video here as it genuinely touched me.

Who would you like to go back and thank in your life? Do share your thoughts!

My Seven Deadly Beauty Sins

This tag has been going around some blogs of late and I soooo wanted to do this but No, I wasn’t tagged by anyone for this post *sob sob*. But still I’m doing this, shameless person that I am 😛 


1. GREED: What is your most expensive beauty item?
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural for Rs.1650. That’s the most expensive makeup item I’ve ever bought for myself.

2. WRATH: Which beauty item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Mascara. I love the effect it has on my eyes. But I always mess up the application 😦 which in turn messes up the rest of the eye makeup.

3. GLUTTONY: What brand makes up the biggest chunk of your make up collection?
Without doubt,  Maybelline. It’s my favourite drugstore brand.

4. SLOTH: What product do you neglect to use due to laziness?

5. PRIDE: Which beauty product gives you the most confidence?
Eyeliner. Neatly tightlined eyes or bold black eyeliner or a fun coloured liner … it always makes me feel good:)

6. LUST: Which item is at the top of your beauty wish list?
Benefit How to look best at everything kit! Sigh, someone please gift meee!!! Acha ye nahi to, gift me the MAC studio fix plus powder foundation!

7. ENVY: What make up product / look looks great on others but not on yourself?
Bronzer. I end up looking like a clown when I wear it.

Valentine’s Day….


I am a very very romantic kindof a person. I love those clichéd things like gifting flowers, chocolates, romantic strolls, candle lit dinners. Despite all this, I don’t really believe in Valentine’s day, why do we need one day to shower love over our loved ones? And plus, this day is so highly overrated in our country where brands etc just an excuse to commercialize stuff! I have never really celebrated this day, nor do I have any plans to do so. But well, to each their own! But yeah the mushy mushy atmosphere does catch up on me too, so all in all it was a nice sweet day today, where I pampered myself 😛

A very happy Valentine’s Day to all my lovely readers! I love you all!!! ❤

So, how did you celebrate V-day? 😀
