Shopping on Jan 1st 2014! It’s A Haul!

When Victoria Moran, author of Fit from Within said, ‘Recreational shopping is the shortest distance between two points: you and broke..’ I clearly did not understand what it meant until I became a beauty blogger. Well, there are times when you really want to buy everything you see and the holiday season, especially the beginning of a brand new year is the best excuse to go crazy and empty your wallets. That’s precisely what I did on the 1st of this month and presenting to you, my crazy yet justified purchases on New Year’s. Justified because I bought only skincare and there are umpteen weddings coming up and my skin needs to look perfect and oh yes, I work in a corporate office now and unlike the times when I was either at school or rotting at home, smelling good matters here. 😛

A Small Festive Haul!

Howdy y’all! I am back after a short break! Although it was a period of 4 days, it was maddening. My aunt was here from Pune (she is still here at my aunt’s place) and she stayed over at my place for 3 days so the day before she arrived was spent cleaning and dusting and the 3 days after she arrived were spent shopping, visiting relatives and watching movies. Not only did I shop, I received some gifts (which I absolutely love!) which I wanted to share with you all. 🙂 Read more

Why i don’t do Haul Posts anymore.

First of all, sorry about being MIA. My internet connection, health and my work had completely messed up my life in the past few days. But that being said, I watched Les Miserables, went to the newly opened Pheonix Mall in Chennai (post on that coming up!) and slept, slept and slept.Coming back to today’s post, let’s just say, I haven’t written this to offend anyone or pinpoint anything. Many of you might agree with me and many of you might not and find my reasoning silly but it is purely my opinion. I felt I had to do this post to tell those of you who had asked me to do haul posts in the feedback form why I don’t do them anymore.

First of all, I USED to do haul posts with just one intent- to show my readers the things I bought and if there is anything from that they want to buy and are waiting for a review, to let me know that and nothing more. People took this in another way. I used to get sarcastic and indirect comments on what a show off I was.
