July Favorites!!

Hey All, July was a very busy but beautiful month for me. I tried to create a variety of content on the blog and I was hoping to do a few more blogs since my last one but got caught up with some things and couldn’t make it. Anyways, I will try and stick to that coming month as well and there is going to be more of travel too as I love traveling around in monsoon (yes, I am a typical Pluviophile 😀 😀 ).

So, the beauty favorites this month are quite few. I mentioned in my June Favorites that I loved the app Smytten and the Love And Joy Perfume by All Good Scents that I got in my first trial. I placed order for the full bottle and I have been wearing it all this month. I have never been a fan of floral scents, but this perfume is just leaving me spell bound. The amazing fruity, flowery and fresh fragrance is so distinctive that you just can’t resist it. The perfume is not too strong but it is not mild either. It’s at that perfect level where you wouldn’t be able to ignore it but it would still not be over powering. And the bottle is soo cute! 😛

Next up are these pretty shades of liquid lipsticks from Chambor. The color range in this new launch of Extreme wear Transferproof lipsticks is really great. The stain is very pigmented and creamy and it doesn’t dry out lips like other liquid lipsticks. The one’s I got are number 431 & 484.

And a quick final mention to the White matte nails that I have been wearing all through this month and still can’t get enough. I think Colorbar Exclusive 37 was the perfect white, it didn’t stain or chip off easy and also didn’t make me ghost like (if you know what I mean!!). And the Colorbar Insanely Matte Top Coat was the cherry on top.

Ok moving on. I read 2 books this month. The first one was “Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir by Padma Lakshmi“. Some of you might know her as a famous model or a TV host or an ex-wife to a famous writer but once you are through with the book you will know her for what she truly is. Nonetheless, the journey of her life is very beautifully written here and is definitely going to strike some chords of your memories or soul.

Another book that I gave a shot to was “Jim Rohn’s The Key To Success“. There is nothing special or new or life-changing in the book. Same old mantras written down in just different words, of which only a few stood out like:

“Work harder on yourself then on your job.”
“Treat your body like a temple.”
“Design Life.”

The only movie that I  enjoyed was “Sultan“. Salman, his dance, the songs, Anushka & ofcourse Randeep Hooda everyone is good to watch!! Apart from the movie I have been hooked on “Homeland” this moth. Loved the power packed character of CIA Operative Carrie, sane yet insane or was it the other way around. Though Season 4 & 5 kind of dipped down cause of a lead character missing(no spoilers) nonetheless the series would be a good watch for anyone who enjoys series with Politics or Power Plays.

 

And the final mention to the favorites of this month is this new site that I stumbled upon one day, “Skillshare“. There are many websites out there to teach you Technical skills or course books stuff, but this one is by far the best if you want to learn new Creative Skills or even hone your existing skills. There are courses on this site from Crafts to Business and in lean, short easy to comprehend videos. I find listening to these even better than the Podcasts.

As always keep sharing your lovely comments & emails guys and I will see soon in a Travel/Lookbook blog…

XOXO!!
