How To Look Like A Cullen

I think I finally need to confess to all of you that I'm a Cullen! Check out these eyes babay! Yeah, I'm a huge Twilight fan. Or in other words, a Twihard. And just like every third girl in the planet, I'm in love with Edward Cullen. This look was pretty unintentional but I couldn't help but notice that I look like a Cullen. And obviously, I really love my Cullen eyes. Anyway its about time I stopped acting like such a fan girl. Read on to see how I got the look.


I'm constantly looking for ways to enhance my eyes as I'm not very fond of their color, shape or size and to add to that, my brows and eyelashes are really pretty invisible too so I love wearing eyeliner and experimenting with colored circle lenses, which you may have noticed from my earlier posts. I also love Gyaru makeup so I've been reading up and have been trying to brush up my makeup skills!

LENSES

 I got my Cullen-esque eyes thanks to Geo Bambi Chocolate Lenses from CircleLensDiary.com, a fantastic online store that sells loads of authentic colored circle lenses and has more than 10,000 pairs in stock. They ship worldwide too. These lenses are really comfortable and in spite of being dark, the color is a reddish brown with a thick black rim on the edge and the yellow in the center blends your natural eye color with the lenses. Comfort wise, these tend to dry after 4-5 hours, so I recommend wearing them for shorter durations or to carry eyedrops with you. However, the feeling you get when you wear these and is amazing (maybe its the Twilight fan talking)

LASHES

To start off with my eyelash issue, I used Etude House Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara from Cosmetic Love, a Korean beauty webstore which stocks a wide range of cosmetics and beauty products by brands like Etude House, Tony Moly, Holika Holika and many more.


This mascara has a unique tube where each twist dispenses a different amount of mascara on the wand, depending on the look you're going for. Twist #1 produces a natural look while Twist #2 gives you a slightly more dolled up look with a more volume and Twist #3 is more of a dramatic night look for a party.

The Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara has three different settings. You need to turn the pink part to adjust the amount of product on the wand and customize your lash style. Here is some info about it -


STEP ONE


You can definitely see the difference now. My lashes instantly look longer and are more defined. Unfortunately, I missed step 2 and twisted it all the way to step 3. Oops!

STEP THREE 


This is so amazing right? You can actually see my lower lashes now. They look thick, defined and my eyes definitely look bigger (And Cullen like)!


I've used a really pricey mascara by Nina Ricci a few years ago and it irritated my lenses after a few hours of wear so I totally stopped using all mascaras because I'm always wearing lenses and have eye allergies. However, This mascara is really fabulous! The formula sticks to your lashes like a dream and hasn't caused my eyes any irritation. As you can see from the pictures, it defines and separates my lashes really well. 

Mission accomplished!

Here's my happy face!

The Dress Of My Dreams

If you may have noticed from my outfit posts in the past year, I rarely wear dresses. The reason behind this is that I just cant seem to find ones that suit my style. Local and Online stores in India have dresses that are either too girly and cutesy or too formal and ladylike so I never found anything that fit my style. However, I always craved for more dresses in my closet and wondered how I'd find something I love. My prayers were answered by Sheinside, which has an amazing collection of stunning dresses and I was delighted to find this beautiful dress on their site. I love everything about it - fit, color, fabric, style. For now, I've found the dress of my dreams. 




It has beautiful lace detailing all over along with sheer panels on the waist and arms. 


   

The back is really pretty too!




I paired it with pointy toe black heels from Zara and a chic perspex box clutch I found on Banggood.com, a site that stocks a huge range of products (both fashion and non fashion related) at unbelievable prices! I was always fascinated by a clear bag so I'm glad I finally got my hands upon one.






In fact I love this dress so much, I'll be wearing it on my birthday next month :)

Outfit - Black Magic

The Little Black Dress or LBD has always been considered a wardrobe essential. The dress's versatility comes from its figure flattering color and the fact that it can be worn for any occasion and with any other color. For a few years, I had a major phase of wearing dresses in every color possible but as the years have passed, I'm back to my love for black dresses. To be honest, more than half my wardrobe is black and I have black clothes in every style possible - edgy, glamorous, sporty, boho. You name it, I've got it (in black!) I have often said the following to myself when I'm dressing up in a hurry - When in doubt, wear black! 

The Little Black Dress is not just a fashion accessory. It’s an institution – an iconic fashion symbol. So I got this lovely LBD from Sheinside - an online store I love more and more each day. They have a fantastic collection of clothing and accessories and are definitely my favorite online store without a doubt. 




    
  

The dress has a sheer mesh panel on the top with a sweetheart neckline. Its a bit crumpled here because it was just too hot to iron it. You can buy it here


If you remember one of my earlier posts, I always wanted a 2d style bag. I just love their quirk factor and how amazing they look in pictures. Thankfully, I found this adorable 2d bag on Banggood, an online store which sells pretty much everything under the roof and at the most insane prices!



I completed the look with these black lace-up booties I got from LovelyShoes a few months ago.

Maple Lens Review - Geo Bella Brown Circle Lens

Being a hoarder of brown colored lenses, I'm always on the lookout for something natural, comfortable and perfect for daily wear. Thankfully, this pair I found at MapleLens serves all those purposes. MapleLens is an  online store in Malaysia that sells circle lenses and has a wide range of Korean brands of colored circle lenses. What I loved about them is their swift response to emails and fast shipping. Their customer service is really great and the site is easy to navigate along with cheap prices! Lenses are grouped in terms of color, size, brand and prescription making it easy for one to browse through their range. 

The lenses I got are Geo Bella Brown which came in a cute pink box which you can see below -


Here is a shot of my natural eye color outdoors in the bright afternoon sun. As much as they are brown, which shows in this close up thanks to the bright sunlight outside, the color is never visible normally and they look black as you may have have seen in my past pictures (see related contact lens review post below where my eyes look pretty black)

Voila, here I am wearing GEO Bella Brown. These lenses have a very subtle color and design which makes my eyes twinkle! They blend naturally into my eyes, but the design is quite visible. There is an outer black rim which accentuates my iris, making my eyes appear larger, and there are brown and hazel spikes that fade into a clear center.

Wearing Geo Bella Brown
They definitely make my eyes look way bigger since you may have noticed by now that I have really small eyes but these pictures sure don't show that! Comfort wise too, I wore them for long hours without a problem so these are great if you have dark eyes like mine and want a daily wear pair which add a subtle sparkle to your eye.

Coupons for Women's Fashion Online In India

Online shopping came to India much later compared to western world but is growing at a remarkable rate. There are numerous Indian sites that let you buy apparel, accessories, cosmetics and much more. Though India is a huge country, stylish brands are only present in a handful of cities and even then, the stock differs from city to city so its great that these websites let you find the perfect piece for your wardrobe no matter where you live. The best part about all these sites is that they also have a cash on delivery option which makes the shopping experience easy for those who don't have a credit card, net banking or are skeptical about online transactions.



However, if you are fond of shopping online, you must also note that the craze of couponing has arrived here too. Couponzguru is a handy coupon website which gives you great deals and discounts on India's top sites for women's fashion like Myntra, FlipkartSnapDeal, Fashionara and others which have numerous brands and a huge inventory of clothing, bags, shoes, makeup and much more. In fact, Dorothy Perkins is now available in India, exclusively through Jabong and Miss Selfridges is too on its way to enter the Indian market through eCommerce. 


So if you do shop from any of these sites, make sure to check out Couponzguru.com first to get insane deals and offers before you make a direct purchase. Besides fashion related websites, they also cater to sites which offer mobiles and electronics, home and furnishing, travel and restaurants so they ensure huge savings for everyone!

Neo Princess Eyes Cosmo Honey Review

After trying various colored and circle lenses, I've finally found my favorite pair of brown lenses thanks to Korea Big Eyes - an online store that stocks many major Korean brands of cosmetic and circle contact lenses at very competitive prices. The pair I got is the Neo Princess Eyes Cosmo in Honey. I just adore these lenses. They're extremely natural looking and the color is very flattering. The best part is that I can wear them in the daytime too without looking over the top. Since they are not too large, they let your eyes breathe and are quite comfortable. In fact, I was wearing them yesterday for more than 12 hours at the stretch so I can safely vouch for their comfort factor. This is definitely my favorite pair and I'm going to repurchase this. If you have dark eyes like mine and are looking for a very natural looking pair of lenses, these are just perfect!

Cafe Colombia Review

Cafe Colombia is an all day Cafe situated in a quiet leafy lane of Kalyani Nagar in Pune. Bustling with youngsters and offering an extensive world cuisine menu, this lovely cafe has a cozy ambiance with many interesting details in the decor. Apart from great coffee and super coolers, it serves awesome breakfast, lunch and dinner. The setting of this place is perfect to hang out with a group of friends or to sit back with a cup of coffee and a good book on a lazy afternoon by yourself.

I went there with my girlfriends recently and had a great time chatting up over good food and drinks and clicking pictures for our blogs.

Check out my review below -


As you enter, its beautiful turquoise interiors, tasteful decor and casual yet comfortable seating options give you a Mediterranean cafe like feel.


Cafe Colombia boasts of an all day breakfast menu that offers a wide range of omelettes, waffles, pancakes, paninis and sandwiches. They also serve hot dogs, burgers, pizzas, pastas, salads, soups, steaks, grills and stews and mini meals. Phew, that's a lot of food! They also have a passport menu that serves classic Indian and South East Asian favorites. Besides these, this is probably one of the few restaurants in India that serves Colombian cuisine. 





To start with drinks, we ordered the Passion Fruit Ice tea, Mango Smoothie and Strawberry Banana Smoothie. All three were refreshing and delicious.


We began our meal with Stuffed Crumbed Mushrooms which consisted of juicy mushrooms and jalapenos encased in a crispy outer shell  and was served with a delicious Aioli sauce. This was absolutely delicious and we wolfed it down in no time.


In main course, we ordered the Buerre Blanc Basa which had juicy chunks of delicious Basa fish smothered in a creamy sage flavored sauce served with mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. The white sauce was delicious and complimented the taste and texture of the fish perfectly.


My friend Natasha was in the mood for some fish too and ordered the Goan Fish Curry Rice, a creamy and flavorful dish which was served with a salad and papad. The thick gravy was infused with coconut milk, giving it an wholesome and hearty flavor.


The third dish we got was the Lamb Stew, a wholesome stew filled with the goodness of vegetables, potatoes, herbs, white wine and lamb of course. This stew was perfect comfort food as described by my friend who had it.


As we sat outside to click some pictures, we couldn't help but notice a bunch of adorable and friendly dogs who also hang out at Cafe Colombia regularly. This one was particularly very friendly and happily posed for pictures with us. 


Here is a close up of him tilting his head and giving us the perfect doggie model pose :)


Here are Natasha and me posing with the menus like we're advertising for them :)


Overall, we loved the ambiance, food and drinks at Cafe Colombia and if you happen to be in Pune, you must visit this place! I can guarantee you that you won't be disappointed!
