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

Wine Tasting Weekend | Outfit Post

Poorva Bhatia | OOTD

We have been blessed with good weather in Chicago.What does that mean? Wine tasting! and some catching up  with friends. I recently fell in love with this skirt and I couldn’t wait to style it. It is a gorgeous olive green mesh maxi skirt with a linen short skirt inside.

I finally wore it last weekend to a Wine tasting event in the heart of Chicago downtown. It was a lovely evening with colors, flowers and delicious wine.

Till a few years back, I would have laughed at you if you told me I would be a huge fan of oils!  My skin used to be oily all the time, my hair used to be oily in a day after washing, and I would feel icky if I put oil on my body. But, now my skin is mostly dry and hair is super dry and frizzy, aah well, the perks of getting old * crying loudly *

So today, I want to talk about this amazing multi-purpose oil which I am in love with!

I have been a fan of The Body Shop since a long long time, regular readers on my blog would know my love and my hugeee collection of products from this brand!

I reviewed the shampoo and conditioner from this range last week. You can see that post here. I have been using the shampoo, conditioner since January.

I finally got it in April for $34 😦 😦 too expensive! Read on to see if it was worth it!

L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner Review.

DSC044341

I have very very dry hair and very dry scalp too! And since 7-8 months, I’ve stopped using hair products with sls, parabens etc. It’s been hard to eliminate these stuff completely but I try to avoid as much as I can. Also, I got some serious scalp problem around November-December last year that I’ll share with you in another post. But for this problem, I underwent a sort of treatment and after that I was supposed to use their prescribed products or other chemical free products.

I wanted to try L’occitane hair products since quite a long time. But as we all know, they are super expensive 😛  but I finally bought travel size bottles of the shampoo and conditioner last year before going to Chicago and I loved them! And also, by chance once I saw this coupon thingy on their US facebook page which had a coupon that you can redeem in any US store for a free set of travel size aromachologie repairing shampoo and conditioner. And ofcourse I got them 😛

I love face powders 😀 on a daily basis, I only use a little compact on my face for a fresh look. Forget foundations, I hardly even use TMs or BB creams daily 😛

I had heard a lotttt about the MAC MSF and really wanted to try it and to be honest, this is one of the most expensive products I own 😛

But is it worth it? Read on to know…
