Has anyone tried the body soufflés?

I want your opinions about the new range of body soufflés by Bath and Body Works. The range includes four fragrances – wild iris and honey, almond and honey, apricot and honey, and lavender and honey.

Golden black clutch

I got myself a load of clutches before I got married and I wanted to share one of my favourites with you all.

image

I got it while shopping in India for my trousseau and it was certainly a great buy. The black is of velvet and the gold is mostly of a raw silk texture. I love the combination and I mostly pair it with one or two of my rich shalwars and sarees.

The inside has but one pocket for holding my keys and ID. Space is not something you’ll get from most ethnic clutches so this one just has enough space to hold my mobile phone, nothing more.

I still consider it one of my favourites though!

Clutching on

Debuted a new clutch bag over the holiday season here in Sri Lanka. I’ve owned it for some years (YES years!) and never took the opportunity to wear it at any point in my life for some odd reason. But time was up and so I made good use of it. Take a look 🙂

Raw silk clutch bag

It’s larger than a typical clutch bag and I love that its not justa single colour toned one. The fuchsia, sea blue and orange tone allow me to wear it along with an array of clothes and I consciously don’t need to do any matching. 

Its got just one inner pocket which is ideal for my compact mirror, lip balm and eye liner. It’s also got these metal circular bar holders instead of cloth straps or something which gives it a classy look on the whole. I didn’t carry too many other things in my bag so size wise, this did me justice.

Happy Good Friday! ♡

Lippies!

I ordered a huge lot of lipsticks and lip balm – still trying them out on by one and I wanted to show you guys how the NYX Cosmetics’ Soft Matte Lip Creams looked like. So I got them in Milan and Prague. From the outer look Milan looked almost peachy with rosy hints and Prague a more deep rose but on my lips the outcome was a bit different altogether.

How they look on my lips

While Milan looked a pinkish matte cream, Prague came across looking almost like a hot pink. No regrets however;  I love them both!

The texture is simply amazing and I love the creamy effect even while applying. The brush makes it a whole lot easy to get along the creases of the lips and for retouching. I had them on before dinner last night and lunch this afternoon and I must say, they don’t fade that easy. YAY!

For just $6 I’ll be getting myself some more of these!

Happy Sinhala and Tamil New Year!

Fun and games

Here’s wishing everyone a Happy Sinhala and Tamil New Year! Club Bentota hosted a couple of fun games for all the guests and here are some snap shots of what took place.

First up was the game that involves blind folding the person playing and that person having to break one of the three clay pots hung from a thread above.

The kids were able to participate too by playing a game that involved blowing up a balloon. The first person to pop the balloon wins. The sack race, lime and spoon race and pillow fights were also included. 

Afterwards my family and I took a half an hour speed boat ride!

It was a gorgeous day indeed and a hell of a lot of fun!

A few essentials

image

Here are a few of my travel essentials.  I hate travelling heavy and carrying too many essentials. Makeup is really a huge no no because I don’t want to have my face done while I’m on vacation.  It’s a waste of time so I usually pack just a lip balm.

In this instance, I’ve got my favourite NYX Colour Lip Balm in Grazie with me. I don’t use foundation or concealer so yay for me for not having to pack any of that either.

I’ve got my Garnier Fructis Moroccan Argan Oil Treatment with me, which I love and works excellently on my hair after a shower.

My Nivea anti – perspirant dry comfort roll on deo is another must have for me. It’s got a sweet floral fragrance which is quite likable too.

And finally a mini perfume of which brand I cannot remember! It’s got floral tones so I feel girly and fresh with every spray ♥

Holiday season ♡

It’s the Sinhala and Tamil New Year season so Sri Lanka is on holiday mode! My family and I hit the expressway and here we are in Bentota!

image
Enjoying water sports!

Bentota is approximately located 1 and half hours away from the city of Colombo.  There’s plenty of water sport activities like jet skiing, jet surfing, banana boat rides and tubing!

We’re staying at Club Bentota which is located on a tiny island by the sea. To get to the hotel, you need to take a short boat ride. Fun and games for the season begin tomorrow so for now, I’m basking in the ambience and cool salty breeze 😀

New accessories!

I couldn’t help myself when I went shopping this afternoon. The Sinhala and Tamil New Year celebrations and shopping sprees are in full swing so many stores have excellent deals and offers. At the Backstage corner in Odel, you could purchase up to Rs. 2,000 and get a pair of funky flip flops for free. I got myself some adorable hair accessories!

Headbands

Since my haircut, I’ve been in the mood for trying out headbands so I got myself three – a teal green one with gold studs, a black one with a cloth black rose and a beige one with tiny golden spots.

Here’s a look at the cute flip flops I picked out! 😀
