Trip to Paris and Switzerland - Day 3,Part 1 - Palace of Versailles

So after a hectic day 2 at Paris Disneyland we arrived late in the night for our check-in at Lyric Hotel Paris. The Hotel is at Rue De Grammont, Paris and we arrived by car hired with Interservice Prestige and even though the chauffeur was from Paris we found it a little difficult to locate the hotel.

Lyric Hotel Paris, Rue de Grammont

Lyric Hotel Paris is a 4 star hotel located in the Opera District of Paris. It is a relatively newly refurbished hotel that really caught our eye when we were browsing for hotels in a central location in Paris
  • Location : Lyric Hotel Paris is centrally located , only a 5 minute walk away from the Opera Metro and a 2 minute walk from Quatre Septembere metro station. This made is really comfortable for us while commuting to various places as most of the attractions were close by.

My Nail Color Collection and How do I organize them?

"Everything in this world has a purpose" , How many of you agree to this? I got several gifts for my wedding & one fine day I sat down to open everything &  to see which goes where. Lot of paintings, silver lamps & some random stuff.

One such gift I received was this jute based box. It looked good & I opened it to find several boxes inside it of various sizes. There were totally 4 of them. I generously gave one to my MIL & took 3 :)

I was wondering what to store in them & it suddenly struck that I can keep all my nail polishes in them.I placed the box on a thick plastic cover like the one from lifestyle & cut out the plastic sheet. I placed the sheet at the bottom of the box.I wanted the box to stay away from any stains.You can also cut longer portions so that the sides are also protected.I then arranged the nail colors according to shade families for easy identification.

Ideal Navrathri Partner : Faces Glam on Eyeshadow in Ruby Quartz Review & EOTD

Have you ever faced this situation where in you like a product so much but unfortunately you will have to give it to someone(when you are in a dilemma & get freaky thoughts of stealing it from them)?
It has happened to me !! I saw this product in a blog & was eyeing on it for quite sometime. I then happened to host a giveaway on my blog & went to the shop to pick up stuff for the winner. I saw this product & then thought let me add it to the giveaway.
I was looking at all the products that I bought in the car on my way back & suddenly noticed that this product was damaged ! I did not know what to do. My husband suggested that I can retain this product with me & give something else in lieu of it.
I was kinda giving a villainous smile inside.:P I knew you will come to me! That's the Law of attraction.

Ha Ha.. that's how I got this Faces Glam On Single Eye shadow in Ruby Quartz with slight damage :)

Biotique Bio Coconut Whitening & Brightening Cream Review & My Usage Details

I have been receiving compliments off late for my skin. My pigmentation has reduced considerably & my skin feels feather soft. My skin feels more youthful and fresh.
The Biotique Coconut Cream is a budget beauty find for me. The SA at the store insisted I get this cream when I asked for a night cream.She said you will really see good results in few months & this was the most sold one in her counter.
I trusted her words since she spoke genuinely & bought this.She also asked me to buy the Biotique Bio Dandelion cream for morning usage since it does not create an oily effect and would create best effects when used along with the coconut cream.I have been using the Coconut cream every night after my CTM routine religiously but I skip the Bio Dandelion quite often.I see good results with the Biotique Coconut Cream.

Biotique Bio Coconut WHitening & Brightening cream 

The Biotique Bio Coconut Cream comes in a typical Biotique packaging - Green colored plastic casing with the name of the product printed in white against it.The cream is white in color and has quite a thick consistency but definitely buttery. When you first apply it, it might feel a bit thick and greasy, but when blended well, it becomes better. Since it is advised to use it as a night cream, I guess its okay to bear with the oiliness.The smell is very strong but does not bother much after application.It is similar to a cream called E-loevera which i used to buy from pharmacy for tan removal or dark spot removal from knee. The smell as well the consistency is similar to that cream.

Things I noticed from the first usage :

My face looked almost flawless and super soft from the first usage. But once I wash my face it does not look all that flawless.But slowly my skin's pigmentation has reduced and I feel it looks more radiant. The acne scars look less prominent.

I recommended this to my mom and she too noticed that the sun tan marks on her forehead has reduced considerably over the past few weeks.

Biotique Product India
Though it is recommended to use it both in the morning and evening, I will not wear it in the morning since it can make the face oily. I also apply it uniformly to my face & neck so that the effect can be uniform.
It is priced reasonably at INR 199 and free of chemicals. Though it does not cause any whitening effect, it is really effective in reducing the acne scars & pigmentation.I love this product a lot and will repurchase it to achieve better results.

W 2 Pomegranate Face Pack review

I hope you all have read my Jabong haul post. I picked up products that I haven't heard about previously & I was pleasantly surprised by this 
product - W 2 pomegranate face mask. I have actually stopped going to the salon for a facial & it has been several months since I went for one.
I follow the CTM routine at home thrice a week & use face packs on 2 days.Usually it will be different face packs on different days : 1 : To write a review & 2 : I cannot stick to one product religiously. I had been to Pondicherry for my Second Wedding Anniversary & got tanned slightly. Once I got back I tried this face pack & the immediate results were brilliant.

MABH Hair oil First month Usage Experience

I will be writing a post about MABH Oil every month to check my progress : This is my first month's experience.

According to me, one thing that can make a woman look beautiful even if she has not used any makeup is her hair. But the same hair can also make a person look bad if it is not maintained properly. This is completely my personal opinion because I experience bad hair days & how much ever I try to divert the attention from my hair to my face, it somehow shows. The amount of time I devote for my haircare is very less when compared to my skincare, but off late I have realized my mistake & am definitely improving my haircare regime. I have stopped experimenting with shampoos and I am sticking to my Biotique Shampoo & Biotique Seaweed Conditioner.

How did I hear about the product ?

I kept seeing a lot of updates on facebook from other bloggers regarding MABH Oil. I had absolutely no clue as to what this MABH oil was & I randomly read few reviews about this oil & visited Lancy's website to read more true experiences shared there.I then learnt she was from Chennai & messaged her on Whatsapp giving a brief introduction about myself. She replied in a few days asking for my address & that she would send me a sample for review. Though there was a small mishap here with respect to the delivery the first time Lancy was kind enough to send me another sample & I received it in the first week of August.

Kanebo Media Face Powder Review

How important is a compact or face powder to us? Atleast I do not realize its importance till summer sets in.
My face begins to feel all oily & sticky after a while. I am quite lazy to apply foundation to work, rather want my skin to breathe freely unless you know ,the day is very important for me.
I usually apply just a BB cream & I ll be just ready to go. But this extended summer in Chennai is taking a toll on my skin making it oily & shiny especially in my T zone.

I had bought this powder from Hongkong last year when I had been there but had not started using it since I was using my Maybelline compact powder & wanted to finish it.I lost this Maybelline compact somewhere & that's when I started using this Kanebo Media powder.

My Haul & first online shopping experience

I was always apprehensive about online shopping - don't ask me why.. I every time add products to the cart & then finally close the tab. But this time I was determined that I should buy something online, why?

1 : My mother made 4 online purchases already . Shame on me :(

2 : I had got this discount coupon for Jabong & had to use it before it expired.

I did not want to buy any cosmetics since I always like to test it on me & then go ahead buying. So it had to be clothing or skincare.I had done a huge haul before my Paris & Swiss trip, so clothing was out of the race.
So it was unanimously skincare which I am currently obsessed about( I am also obsessed about some junk jewelry).
