Geo Bella Brown Circle Lens Review | MapleLens.com

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.

Couponzguru is a handy coupon website which gives you great deals and discounts on India's top sites for women's fashion like Myntra, Flipkart, SnapDeal, Fashionara and others which have numerous brands and a huge inventory of clothing, bags, shoes, makeup and much more.

Neo Princess Eyes Cosmo Honey Circle Lens Review | KoreaBigEyes.com

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!

Restaurant Review - Cafe Colombia

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!

Outfit - Winter Day

Okay, so as you guys may have noticed, I barely do outfit posts! The main reason behind this is that I'm lazy and nocturnal so I always get dressed up at night along with the fact that I feel hot all day and hate dressing up till the sun is up. Anyway, here are some pictures of a recent outfit I wore. I started going to the gym a few weeks ago and its my birthday on 4th May so I hope to lose a few pounds and get my dream body by then. Unfortunately, almost everyday after gym, I start craving beer and reward myself generously so lets hope my metabolism wins the war!!

Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura Makeup Mist Review

I've always been fascinated by Korean cosmetic brands and was more than happy to discover Cosmetic Love, a Korean beauty online store which stocks a wide range of cosmetics from brands like Etude House, Tony Moly, Missha, Skinfood, TheFaceShop and more. So I applied for their sponsorship program and chose to review the Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura Makeup Mist. Phew, that's a long name!


I've always loved face mists because they're hydrating without being overly creamy and are amazing if you want to set your makeup or make skin look luminious and dewy. Having used the BodyShop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz (which I love) and  Evian Facial Spray (its just okay) in the past, I wanted to try out a Korean counterpart and am definitely pleased with Tony Moly's Luminous Goddess Aura Mist. 


This product comes in a transparent pale pink bottle which contains a mix of oil and water, a lot like many eye and lip make up removers available nowadays.  It has a 3:7 ratio of an oil and water mixture that hydrates and moisturizes skin and adds a healthy glow to it.  Because of this, it can be used as a primer before makeup or as a finishing mist. My makeup looked more natural after using it and my skin felt instantly softer and healthier. Check out the photos below and decide for yourself -

BEFORE

AFTER

My skin's definitely glowing after a few spritzes of Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura Mist

Goddess Mode Activated! My skin feels softer, makeup looks more natural and my face is definitely luminous!

Product Details

Capacity : 80ml

Main ingredients : Marine collagen, Hyaluronic acid, Argan oil, Olive oil

Usage : Spray when your skin is dry or after applying makeup to let it set and give your face a glow.

Overall : Definitely purchase! This is a great product as its light and travel friendly and is a great pick-me-up for your face! Its the easiest and fastest way to get healthy glowing skin.


For this and more amazing Korean skincare and makeup, check out Cosmetic Love right away! They have a lot of really fabulous things and it took me ages to pick this product because just like my blog name, I want it all!! :)
