This weekend has been the first one in a long time where I have been in the delightful position of having ‘no plans’. Mega lay-ins have occurred, cakes have been baked and TV shows caught up on all sprinkled with a little laze in my bedroom toying around with my favourite beauty products. Bliss…

I can be a little floozy with my skincare from time to time. I own too many serums to count on one hand, foot care galore and don’t even get me started on masks. But there are a few products that I’ve gone back to time and time again and I think it’s fair to say they are pretty much permanent features in my routine. Say hello to the skincare repurchases…

But its all about the nails

You know when you feel like you’re wearing a colour so dark on your talons that you could probably go out wearing a paper bag and nobody would notice? No? Just me? Well that’s how I feel today. For two days ago I gave myself a mani with Lakme’s Amethyst and I bloody love it. Super summery, eye-catching and so brilliantly dark I don’t think I’ve stopped looking at ’em since I painted them!

But does one balm reign supreme? It’s time for lip balm smack-down.

4 products

This week hasn’t left too much time to experiment with makeup – although I have been keeping my eye on beauty trends – I know what I’ll be rocking next week. So my morning routine most days has consisted of a rather measly 4 products which I can very easily throw on in less than 4 minutes. The epitome of lazy girl chic.

spa la vie by l'occitane

relaxing aromachologie massage

I’ll let you in to a secret – I’ve never done the whole ‘spa thing’ before. Yes I’ve had a facial, but the ‘wander round in your robe, being put to sleep by a masseuse‘ experience? No. I’ve only dreamt that day would come. Well it did. A few days ago, in the heart of South Mumbai. And surprise, surprise – it was positively dreamy.
