5 Accessories to spice up your outfit !

I am big believer in what accessories can do for an outfit. In today's post I share with you my top 5 picks to spice up an outfit.

1. Statement Necklace - I love jewellery, statement necklaces being one of my favorite. Statement necklaces, in my opinion is the easiest way to bling up your outfit. If you are fond of plain, monochrome clothing, then statement jewellery is an easy way to add some color, some oomph to the outfit. I have previously done a post on Styling Necklaces. Featured in the pic, is a necklace from J Crew.

2. Watch - If jewllery is not your thing, then watches are the easiest bet to snazz up an outfit. There is so much on offer, metal strap, leather strap, wrap watches, chunky, delicate, etc. Featured in the pic, are watches from Marc Jabobs and Michael Kors.

3. Bright Lipstick - This may not be for everyone, but I truly belive a bright, bold lip, definitely adds all the style, glamour to an outfit. Featured in the pic, is MAC Ruby Woo.

4. Belt - I am big fan of skinny belts, they add definition to the outfit and pack a style statement too. Featured in the pic, is a belt from Forever New.

5. Scarves - This is one thing that I have to admit I don't wear a lot of. Scarves add an easy and effortless vibe to the outfit. Featured in the pic, are scarves from a local market in Mussorie (polka dotted one) and Her Fashion Box*

Which are your favorite accessories to snazz up an outfit ?

Loving Now - Chocolate Bar, Wings, Brows, Kiehl's and more !

In today's post I share with you things I have been loving lately.

I have been really enjoying Coconut Oil to remove my eye makeup. Using coconut oil to smear my makeup all over and having panda eyes at the end of the day is the most satisfying feeling ever. I love how easily coconut oil removes my makeup and also conditions my lashes. I did a post in the past about Ways to use Coconut Oil

I have previously mentioned the Kiehl's Patchouli & Freshrose perfume HERE. I have recently started using the shower gel from this range. Ahhh, its absolutely gorgeous, such a fresh, rosy and relaxing fragrance.  

I have been obsessing over Essie Enuff is Enuff and have worn it a lot this spring. I adore this shade. Check the Manicure Monday HERE

There has been a new addition to my makeup routine, I have started doing my brows. I have been using MAC Espresso for the same and it is the perfect color for me. 

If you checked my recent USA Haul, you may have seen I bought the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. I have been using it non stop since then. It is one gorgeous beauty.

I am loving the Loreal False Lash Wings mascara. It separates, adds volume, lengthens and keeps my lashes curled all day. 

I have been loving this elf Blush brush, its smaller than the other blush brushes I own and makes for a precise application.

Beauty things I am terrified of !

In today's post I share with you the beauty bits I am terrified of. I thought it would be fun to do this post. 
Let me know what you think.

    Contouring - Who doesn't love a contoured face, well I do and I definitely need it too. I love when I see contouring tutorials, I am amazed at the transformation, but somehow I have never tried my hand at it. I just thing I will make a huge mess and my face will end up looking like a brown patch.

    Purple Lipsticks - I just can't imagine wearing a purple lipstick, I just think I will look crazy. Well, truth be told, I have never been into purple lipsticks. But I do like purple lipstick on others. Lilit from Makeup and Macaroons is really fond of purple lipsticks  and rocks it like no other. I have the same issue with berry lipsticks, the only difference being I have tried one. But, IMO, berry lips also don't look good on me.

    False Lashes - This is another beauty bit that I love on others. I have never attempted the whole false lash thing. The biggest reason being, I am too lazy to go through the entire process. Also I am scared that when I try to remove them I will strip of my lashes along with the false one and nobody wants that.

    Hope you enjoyed the post. What are the beauty bits you haven't tried or you are terrified of ?

    Review - Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Paradise Pink 016

    A while back there was 40% off at Revlon in Priceline and I took it as an opportunity to try out the Super Lustrous lipsticks. I have heard so much about these lipsticks. I picked up the sahde 'Paradise Pink 016', it is a matte formula. 

    Revlon Paradise Pink is no where close to being pink, but is a reddish orange color. Its a perfect bright color for summers.

    Paradise Pink is the only lipstick I have tried in this range. The color shows opaque in one swipe. The lipstick feels nice and creamy when first applied and gradually turns to a matte finish. It is a matte finish but does not feel painfully drying on the lips. The packaging is fairly okay. The lipstick stays for 4-5 hours. This range is affordable and easily available and has lots of shades on offer. 

    I love this shade, it is good to add a pop of color. It would suit most olive skin tones in my opinion. Overall, its a great lipstick, I will try some other shades (will wait for the sale, though !)

    If you are in the market for a bright lipstick, swatch this next time you are at Priceline.

    AUD 21.95 

    Have you tried this shade ? Do you like it ?
