Bblunt is a truly brilliant hair care brand and so I was very pleased to see that they had launched a dry shampoo. Here’s the low down on the new Bblunt Back to Life Dry Shampoo. If you’re looking for something a little different from all the dry shampoo out there, then you need to check this out. It is really easy to use. You simply hold it in an upright position, open the cap and then gently squeeze the bottle to puff out the product.

the ultimate twp

Today marks my 25th (!?!?!) Weekend Post. Which means there’s been 25 posts full to the brim of preening, pampering and primping with a hella load of skincare, body and hair care treats along the way with some Sunday beauty chores thrown in as well. Phew. These are easily my favourite posts of the week to write and to test out products for – who doesn’t love an hour long bath all in the name of blogging research? But to celebrate, somewhat, this milestone I thought I’d note down my favourite posts and products from this category that I happily partake in most weekends. These are rituals that (I hope) will never go away, welcome to The Ultimate Weekend Post…

It’s fair to say that my beauty stash is ever expanding. I’ve lost count of the number of lipsticks I own (please tell me I’m not the only one who has a hefty lipstick supply!?), my shower gel stores grow by the day and I have more than enough nail polish to open up a well-stocked nail salon. It’s fair to say I have enough beauty stuffs around me to last me a good few years or build a small bungalow if needed. So when a repurchase is made, it’s a big deal. I sneaked into Lifestyle the other day to pick up two essential items that I had recently used right to the depths of the tube, time for a repurchase.

An ode to eyeshadow 2

An ode to eyeshadow products

A strange this is happening. When I’m sitting at my vanity each morning deciding what makeup to sport for the day (decisions, decisions), I have found myself reaching out for an eyeshadow and throwing one on as part of my routine. Regular readers of my blog will no doubt gasp out loud at this news as eyeshadow has always been pretty low down on my list of makeup priorities, but with the colder weather setting in and any hint of warmth in my skin fading fast I’m embracing a slightly more ‘done-up’ eye than I usually do. Here’s what products I’ve had on rotation for the last week…

2016 nail polishes swatch

Fellow bloggers aside, you guys are my biggest enablers. The comments you leave with suggestions of products you think I’ll love, Facebook messages giving me a nudge to indulge and tweets opening my eyes to tempting special offers left right and centre. Well the latter ended up in a snappy Nykaa order the other day when they were offering some amazing deals; ordered at lunchtime and in my hands by 10 am the following day – that’s what I like. The purchase in question – nail polishes…

I LOVE Bio-Oil. If it wasn’t ~Rs.400 for a small bottle, I would like literally bathe in it. I know it’s not ‘natural’ by any means – it’s definitely fragranced and coloured and has stuff in it other than just oils. And yeah, one of the first ingredients is mineral oil…but this stuff works.

This weekend I thought I’d mix it up a bit, quite literally. I’m regularly showing off my baking wares on Instagram (glossandmagic, if you fancy some food and makeup porn) and a few of you asked for them to be leaked onto the blog, but I don’t want to lean away from beauty too much. So I thought I’d incorporate one of my favourite things to bake into a caramel Sunday conglomerate – a kitchen marathon with the aim to produce seriously sweet caramel pudding followed by an equally satisfying mani with Lakme’s Caramel Melt Gel Stylist. This recipe isn’t too tricky – hey, if I can make it and the results are half edible, then anyone can – but put aside a good hour or so and get your MasterChef cap on. And it’s based on this recipe. First up ingredients…
