Outfit - Tailoring Swiftly

Do you remember 'that' cutout white jumpsuit Taylor Swift wore to the Billboard Music awards? That was Balmain. I can't afford Balmain. So here I am in a similar style I found on Wholesale 7, a great site with some really nice clothes at very good prices. Although this one is slightly different from the original, I quite like the design and how chic it looks with this furry jacket of mine. My body is nowhere close to Taylor Swift because I'm short and curvy, however, I still think there's something very diva-esque about this look!

My Envy Box - February 2016

The February edition of My Envy Box is in collaboration with one of my favorite Indian beauty brands - Forest Essentials. They just completed 15 years in India and this box is filled with a bunch of products from them. The box is white colored with a pretty watercolor peacock motif on the top. All products inside are arranged inside compartment wise.


The products are the perfect size for traveling. I got the Silkening Shower Wash with Madurai Jasmine and Mogra which smells of jasmine and leaves skin soft, clean and hydrated after a shower. Then there's the Lightening and Brightening Tejasvi Emulsion which claims to provide extraordinary lightening and brightening of skin. With regular massage skin acquires a noticeably soft, fairer, resilient and ‘plumped’ quality, and a radiant glow or “Tejas”. I am yet to try it out. Then there's the Hand Pounded Organic Fruit Scrub which is made of fresh organically grown Dates, Peaches and Almond seeds with rich Apricot Kernel oil, pure Honey and finely milled Almonds to gently exfoliate dull cells, revealing a beautifully polished and glowing complexion. I'm yet to use this one too. 

There is also a bar of Luxury Sugar Soap Bengal Tuberose. The brand claims that the lingering scent of fresh Tuberose flowers (Rajnigandha) leaves the skin soft and lightly scented. It is a harmonizing fragrance which uplifts the senses. I'm yet to use it. Lastly there's the Ultra Rich Body Lotion Mashobra Honey & Vanilla. I've been using their body wash with this fragrance for a couple of months now and I love it and the body lotion is equally good and I use it daily.


Overall a great box with some great products for February. Subscribe to My Envy Box now to receive beauty and  makeup goodies every month!!

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

I've always had long hair but thanks to chemical straightening and coloring, it lacks volume and is quite sleek. I always wanted fabulous volume and realized that the easiest way to achieve it is to get clip in hair extensions because they are very simple and easy to wear. You can wear or remove them yourself without costly salon appointments. Also, unlike other extensions, they do not damage the hair a single bit. I got mine from Irresistible Me - a growing brand of 100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and hair tools. Irresistible Me specializes in high quality extensions at great prices. 


I think its amazing that they give you a smaller section of extensions to test if it matches with your hair color. In case it doesn't, you can return it to them.

Check out how awesome they look after wearing! Not only is my hair longer, but it also has so much more volume. I got 22 inches of their Silky Touch extensions which exceeds my normal length by about 3-4 inches! Even though my hair is irregularly colored, the shade Silky medium brown matched my hair color perfectly! 


Silky Touch is their best-selling line made with 100% human Remy hair. These hair extensions are amazing quality for a friendly price and can be very easily styled, cut, colored and curled to blend in your hair perfectly. The thickness of the hair decreases very slightly towards the ends just like normal hair does which gives a completely natural look while wearing them (as you can see above). Offering fantastic value for the money, the Silky Touch clip in hair extensions are perfect for anybody who loves adding a bit of volume and/or length to their hair occasionally or for special events.


The extensions securely attach to your hair with small snap-on clips that were sewn onto the hair extensions that clip right under your own hair. The clips we use are of high quality and ensure a tight grip that prevents them from slipping. You won’t even feel them once you clip them on! Check out this helpful video which demonstrates how to wear hair extensions. You can color them too. However, since these extensions have been treated and chemically processed they recommend purchasing a slightly lighter color than what you are looking for and then use semi-permanent color to darken the hair color. It is less harsh on the hair when you are depositing the color than lifting the color. 


 If you’re just starting with hair extensions and you want something that’s great quality, the Silky Touch clip in hair extensions are the way to go. These are awesome if you have short hair and want a new hairstyle. My mom is a huge fan and plans to take half of mine because she loves long hair!
I love Irresistible Me extensions and totally recommend these if you're looking for good quality hair extensions online.

Outfit - Cocktail Hour

Since I'm not a very big fan of wearing bright colors, I gravitate towards black dresses. I recently got this gorgeous black lace detailed dress and love how elegant and classy it looks. I got the dress from Banggood which is an awesome site for high quality fashion at reasonable prices. I also got my fun 2D bag from this post and the beautiful white purse from this post from their site. I kept the look simple and paired it with a black bag and heels and finished it off with red lipstick to add a pop of color. This outfit is perfect for a formal dinner date or cocktail party as its elegant and sophisticated and the lace detail makes it stand out from other LBDs.

#SizzleToGoa With Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe is synonymous to rock and roll music and lip smacking American cuisine. Isn't it? They've got something new in store for you this February! They have rolled out out a limited time  menu with a combination of lip-smacking sizzlers; delicious Long Island Iced Teas and a chance to win a couple's stay for 3 days and 2 nights at India’s first Hard Rock Hotel in Goa. How fun is that? I went to Hard Rock Cafe Pune recently and tried out some of the delicious food and long islands they have in store for us! 

The menu has a large spread of scrumptious dishes sizzled to absolute perfection. Options range from a Thai Skillet, Italian Mafia Skillet, Herb Crusted Chicken Skillet and much more along with an exclusive range of Long Island Iced Tea cocktails and shots especially hand-crafted by their bartenders.

I've been trying to get active on Snapchat so I decided to add my snapchat videos to this post to show you what I ate! Follow me on snapchat - junebiswas



I tried the Mexican Chipotle Chicken and Prawn Skillet. It came with smoky chipotle spice grilled chicken  and prawns served on a bed of fajita onion pepper, tangy salsa and mexican rice topped with smoked chili cilantro sauce. You must try this one because the sauce is absolutely delicious. 

I also had the Steak Satellite Skillet which is a pepper crusted grilled steak served with smoked chicken franks on a bed of veggies served with cajun rice, bourguignon sauce and cheesy mash potato. If you love steak, you must give it a shot. Really yum!



Here's the gorgeous Lavender Ice Tea I fell in love with last time I went there. 


This one's called Love is in the air - Five spirits, red wine and a hit of lychee


This is the Big Bull Ice Tea - Blue Curacao, Red Bull and 6 kinds of spirits. Boom Boom


Besides a good time over great drinks and delicious food, they are also offering guests a chance to stay at India’s first Hard Rock Hotel in everybody's favorite holiday destination - Goa! All you need to do is head over to your nearest Hard Rock Cafe for a smokin’ hot experience, get social and use the hashtag, #SizzleToGoa and you might just be the winner!

India Circus Haul

I'm always talking fashion, beauty or food so here's something related to home decor and interiors for a change. India Circus is an online store that offers contemporary-chic, sophisticated, and affordable style for various areas of your life, from home d├ęcor to personal accessories. Inspired by life in India today, India Circus incorporates bright and iconic elements of India into its kitsch designs. Their fun items capture the essence of life in India through their vibrant and colorful designs. I got a bunch of kitschy stuff from their site and it's all so nice!

The humble tea glass from roadside stalls gets a modern touch in this set of 4 chai (tea) glasses complete with a holder. Exhibiting a lotus design and moustache print, these chai glasses can be perfectly doubled up as shot glasses. Perfect for a party and look lovely on display too. 


Coasters and napkins are an essential when entertaining guests and this pretty tissue box holder and camel motif coaster set complement each other perfectly. 


My mom likes to change our table mats every couple of months so I was glad to find this beautiful printed table mat and napkin set which I gifted her. 


Our living room has a pale turquoise green theme which I was bored of so these two bright pink cushion covers from India Circus adds the perfect pop of color to the seating area. I love the quality and the design. 


Last but not the least is this cute tea-pot themed shopping bag which my mom picked up for her school use (She's a teacher so needs to carry a lot of stuff to work daily)


Here's my dog Ozzy looking glum because she was woken up from deep sleep to be a part of this shoot!


Overall, I had a great shopping experience at India Circus and recommend you to check it out if you're looking for fun stuff for your house or to gift others. Their products are really nice and vibrant and shipping is super fast! The best part is that they ship internationally too so no matter where you are in the world, you can get a bit of India in your house with India Circus!

Bunny Color Brown Review | Klenspop.com

Hello and welcome to another brown lens review! I really enjoy reviewing contact lenses because I wear them on a daily basis and have been doing so for over a decade. This pair is called Bunny Color Brown and is from the Korean site K-Lenspop. They have a huge range of circle lenses and you can find any kind of lenses there. It's a very natural looking brown and is very comfortable so I'm very happy with them. 

The lenses came in a cute pop art themed box with a case and tweezers along with an informative guide on how to wear and look after contact lenses. This is really useful for people who are new to wearing lenses as it has tips for lens wear and care . 

This is what they look like before you wear them.

Here are my natural super dark brown eyes - 

And voila, look at the difference after I wear them! So natural yet prominently brown.

Theses lenses are two-toned with a mix of dark brown on the limbal ring and a lighter shade which leans more towards a dark honey-brown. 

I love how the color is perfect for my complexion and looks natural yet noticeable. They also have a dolly effect along with slight enlargement which makes my eyes look bigger.

I can also vouch for their comfort factor because I wore them for over 10 hours yesterday (which I do not recommend) but faced no discomfort at all. 


Overall, I really love these and recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful brown color. The best part is that they look good on people with dark eyes just as well as they suit ones with light eyes.
