Where to Shop Beautiful Formal Gown Dresses this Wedding Season? Beformal.com.au

Beformal.com.au

Hello gorgeousness,

I’ve been too busy with the wedding season lately. Always running out of clothes to wear, I have so less when it comes to ethnic and almost nil when it comes to gown and formal dresses. So the other day my bestie asked me where she can find Formal Dress Shops? As she is getting married soon, she wants one or two for a cocktail party and reception. Honestly, I didn’t know any place and I thought being a beauty & fashion blogger it would be a shame if I cannot help her out. C’mon she trusted me to advice her with a good place to shop. So I thought this will be a good opportunity to do a little homework plus it will be helpful for my marriage too. I searched a lot online for plus size formal dresses as she is plus size (No, I am not). It’s a task to find dresses for plus size. After a lot of research work and help from blogger friends, I came across this website called http://www.beformal.com.au/ This website was started in the year 2013 and serves across the world. They have got millions of products and customers who purchases from their range of Formal dresses Australia, wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses, prom dresses etc.. You would now think that it is going to be expensive to purchase dresses online. I have compared the prices myself and they offer the best dresses in wholesale rate.

The best part is they have dresses for all age, size and occasion. I was shocked to see the plus size formal dresses Australia variety on this website. They have some breathtaking formal dresses and gowns. My friend was puzzled looking at their collection. It was difficult for her to pick just ‘one’. In India, its absolutely difficult to get good plus size formal dresses and gowns for a bride. Usually, the collection is too tacky, too tight or too old-fashioned. The good thing about getting a dress from this website is that they customise the dresses according to your size. Yippie! What a sigh of relief isn’t it? If you are a plus size woman and looking for formal dresses go follow this link http://www.beformal.com.au/list/plus-size-formal-dresses-c113338/

Be Your Own Version of Beautiful!

We have noticed that many of us continuously look for ways to look better. No doubt, it’s important to pamper yourself and take great care of your skin. But have you ever noticed that most successful ones or the happiest people are not always the ones who have super glowing or flawless skin. Take a deep look. They don’t even have thick hair or great figure and yet they seem to enjoy life and live to the fullest. And you know what? That’s the only thing that matters.

If you feel that you are always under the insecure or negative blanket, you should definitely give few minutes of you time and read this. You never know, this may change your ways of perceiving life. Being beautiful is all about feeling beautiful. Sure, you can feel that you are beautiful, and you must but here are some daily tips that will add fuel to your self worth.

BE YOURSELF-  many of us sometimes feel that we are not the best so how can one be one’s own self? You need to stop comparing yourself with others. You must know that you are worth the best and that you have everything in you that the other person has. Do not go out to impress anyone as all such efforts prove to be futile and frustrating with time. We always want to be loved. Stop looking for it, rather give love to people. You will see a multitude of self confidence increasing in yourself as people will start valuing you. Everybody needs love, try to be a giver and accept yourself and embrace your very own qualities. You are you and you are not mean to be someone else.

 EDUCATE YOURSELF-  now we do not mean that you go to a college or get some expensive degrees. Education comes in all form. Spend your time reading or learning new things. Be so busy to make yourself in to a better person that you have no time to look out for any flaw in your physical appearance. You must have noticed that one of the most important persons in your life is not the one with the most beautiful skin, but with the most beautiful mind. Read blogs, magazines, books, news paper, cook or do anything to make yourself into a better person than what you were yesterday. Have a goal.

EXCERCISE- You need not join a gym, you need not invest money into buying expensive thing! All you need to do is take out some time to give your body what it deserves. Even if its 15 sit ups a day, do it. Walk for twenty minutes at least. You will notice a lot of changes in your looks.

YOUR HAIR-  yes it does matter. Not that significantly though but a little lower on the priority list. Get a good hair cut and keep yourself clean. Try to take a shower daily and inspire others.

Being beautiful is all about having that attitude!

How to Pamper Your Skin in Winters

All of us love winter. The lovely breeze and the cozy coffee make our hearts bloom. But with all these we sometimes forget to pamper our skin. Winter has the ability of taking moisture from your skin, making you look dull and lifeless. The question is; are you going to let this happen to you? If your answer is ‘’no’’, which we are quite sure that it is, we recommend you to spare two minutes and rehash things which you are already aware of!

Moisturising is a must for a beautiful skin. With regular practise, you will notice softer and more radiant and glowing skin. Of course the easy way is just dab the cream but a little more knowledge will go a long way. Take a look!

  1. COVERING YOUR FEET AND HANDS AT NIGHT- winter can really make your hands and feet look like those of crows! No offence but we all would agree to this in our deep conscious. Here is how you can combat it. Just apply loads of moisturising cream on your hands and feet. You can apply any cream which suits your skin. Biotique products are good. But if you find them expensive, you may try regular boro-plus. Take huge amount and massage. The trick to get the deep moisture is that you must cover your feet and palm. Wear socks and gloves. This ensures that the moisture sets deep in your pores. Do this daily. Within three to four days, you are bound to notice the difference. Your hands and feet will appear soft and glowy as feather.
  2. MORNING- winter morning is not only restricted to difficulty in getting up, it has the habit of leaving you feel dry. The knuckles, elbows, neck and lips are most affected. Do not worry. Just take the effort of applying your cream on these areas.
  3. POST BATH- so bathing does take away little moisture! Replace your regular soap with moisture laden body wash. After bathing, massage yourself with moisturising cream. You may also choose olive oil. This is extremely important if you are targeting healthy glowing and soft skin. Olive oil can be used on lips as well. It will make it pink naturally with regular usage. Another thing which you must keep in mind is that you must keep your hair dandruff free. If your hair has dandruff, take all the steps to get it removed. It may have severe effect on your skin. A healthy scalp is a prerequisite for a healthy soft skin. Wash your hair at least thrice weekly.
  4. CARRY YOUR MOISTURISING LOTION WITH YOU- so if you are a student or an office goer, you are very much aware that that anything applied in the morning doesn’t last for long. Carry your small handy bottle of cream and apply it after 4-5 hours of first usage. Remember, good skin is never difficult to achieve. Many of us never get it only because we are never persistent in our effort. Love yourself and love your skin. Give it what it deserves.

 

YOU WERE BORN TO SHINE! 🙂

GET GLOWING SKIN WITHOUT MUCH EFFORT

We all want that perfect skin and flawless complexion. No matter how confident we are, a little pampering always goes a long way in boosting your self esteem. Of course nobody says that confidence is confined to appearance but why not make the use of these inexpensive things and restore that glow you were born with?

You were born with beautiful skin. You were born with those glowing cheeks. Why let pollution and stress take away your deserved charm?

It is never difficult to get glowing skin. The only thing which is required is persistence. Trust us on this part, this is the only thing why many people are victim of bad skin. So take little time out and try these easy tips.

LEMON – now surely this is something you have known since ages. But sometimes you need a little reminder that yes you can do it.

Simply rub lemon juice on your face and neck and leave it on for 10 minutes. A lot of people are sensitive to lemon. You can add little warm water to the juice just to dilute it. This will cut the burning effect, if at all you feel. Wash your face  after 10 minutes with warm water. Try this method for 3-4 times a week.

You can also add honey to the lemon and apply it on your face. Keep this pack on for 20 minutes and wash it with luke warm water. A regular practise will not only leave you with glowing skin, it will also help remove dead cells.

TURMERIC- turmeric has been known as a magical beauty thing since ages. Well, our ancestors were never wrong when they applied turmeric on the brides. You are aware of the effects that it creates. Why not try it on yourself?

Get raw turmeric and make a paste by blending it in the mixture. Take little bit and apply on your face. You may add milk if your skin is not too oily. Leave this paste for 20 minutes and wash with luke warm water.

This method is not recommended for pimple prone skin.

HONEY- glow is much related to moisture. Have you noticed how an oiled surface glows? That’s what honey does to your skin. It is a great moisturiser and has antibacterial properties that also fights skin infection.

Apply plain raw honey on your face and wash it off with cool water after 15-20 minutes. Follow this on a daily basis to get soft, glowing and radiant skin.

CUCUMBER- cucumber has cooling and astringent effect on your skin. It hydrates and gives an overall glow.

Cut the cucumber into thick pieces and rub all over your face and neck. Leave it for half an hour and wash it with running water. This should be done daily for greater benefit. The ones who are sensitive to cold and cough can restrict this method to thrice weekly.

Apart from these you can also try aloe vera juice on your face. Above all, remember to keep your face clean and get adequate sleep.

Get that glow!

LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT WORKING OUT OR CUTTING ON YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD

This is surely not the first time you are coming across such headings and such promises. But there is one thing which is different about this article and that is; it does not ask you to wrap yourself with plastic or eat some ugly looking seeds. There are thousands of long articles on weight loss but honestly who has that much time and patience and that too when you see the same points written in various forms. However, if you are still keen on losing 4-5 kgs, just give 5 minutes of your time and read this simple topic. We do not promise you any flat stomach or killing curves. We promise you overall weight loss in a healthy way.

  1. Small effort– every single effort that you put in goes a long way. Remember nothing goes in vain as your body records all the changes done to its eating habit. If you are into using an elevator, stop there. Try to use the stairs. Now you are not asked to get to the top of the 20th floor by climbing. Just cover some of the distance by using the stairs. If you have to travel to 10th floor, then climb to first three floors, and then take the lift or the elevator. Similarly, try to walk at least 20-30 minutes three to four times a week. This is not too much and by walk, we just mean walk. That’s all.
  2. Eating habits– well, if you are expecting that you will be debarred from gulping down your favourite chocolate drink or your pizza, you are in for a surprise. You may continue to have your delicacies. Just make sure that you have it in the morning before 11 AM and try not to have them more than twice a week. Replace sweets with fruits for deserts. Having morning breakfast is a must. Do not ever skip your breakfast. Have your favourite and large share of meal by latest 10 A.M
  3. Lunch – you can have your lunch as regular. Do not think too much. Just keep one thing in mind that your lunch is not junk food.
  4. Evening snacks– if you have had your lunch by 2 PM, you can have some fruits at 4 PM. Try having oranges or apples.
  5. Dinner– Now this is the main thing about the entire weight loss dilemma. This point must be followed religiously. Have your dinner latest by 7 or 8 PM. This can be little difficult for officer goers but it is not if you are determined. It is going to be not-so-easy initially but with time you will get used to it and your body will accept this routine.

You can have your tea or coffee as regular. Just follow these simple steps on a daily basis. Once in a while you are allowed to cheat when you go for parties or outing. The most important point from this article is that dinner should be consumed by 7 PM. You may also have green tea twice daily to enhance the process. Nothing else is required. In 20 days, you will start seeing the result. It will be slightly difficult in the first week but you are sure to get this result if you keep these points in mind and most importantly, have your dinner before 7-8 PM. Give it a try!  I have religiously followed this routine and lost 5kgs. I am still on way of losing weight. So it’s time you stop being lazy and make 2k16 your year.

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

Hello dearies,

DSC_0007
Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

I know I have been MIA for a very long time. December went away then New Years got over and now I am writing something almost after a week from New Years. Well, I don’t know what I have been doing lately. I am so busy with my family and friends. I told you my relatives have come from USA so my whole schedule has gone for a toss and blogging has taken a backseat. But I am dedicated to write more from this year and give my best to my blog. So here I am with writing on Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo. Many of my friends kept asking me what shampoo and conditioner I have been using lately for my coloured hair. Well, I keep switching in between conditioners, but this shampoo has been the best stuff I’ve chosen for my hair. My second option was always Streax colorgard shampoo. Both the shampoos work great for me but this is definitely better. I found this awesome product in Beauty Centre Mumbai. I picked it up randomly as it was from Schwarzkopf. I am glad I trusted my gut.

Product Description

  • Provides extra long-lasting colour protection and intensive shine.
  • Smoothes and cares for the hair structure of coloured hair.
  • Radiant and long-lasting colour shine.

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

Price – I got this for Rs.200 for 400ml from Beauty centre. The price varies everywhere. You can buy this online though.

DSC_0013
Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

Packaging – I like the red hot packaging which is also very sturdy. It comes with a flip flop packaging. It is travel friendly. But there is no small bottle available in this. So I guess I’ll take some of the shampoo in a small bottle instead of carrying this big bottle. The packaging looks attractive and stylish.

My Experience with Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo-

Incase you are wondering if I have done any recent hair colouring then let me enlighten you that I have not. I have coloured my hair last year on Christmas. My hair colour has faded a bit but not gone completely. I have invested in many shampoos and conditioners to protect the hair color. I was pretty satisfied with Streax but I wanted something extraordinary. So I thought of picking this up for a try.  With the very first wash my hair felt silky smooth and soft. I was so happy that I was taking pictures and sending to my besties group showing them how soft the hair looked. I can tell you it’s the shampoo because the conditioner was the same old one from Streax that I was using. I couldn’t find the conditioner from Schwarzkopf. The shampoo is bit runny in consistency, it lathers really well. The fragrance is too mild to get noticed. It helps in cleaning the scalpe well and remove oil dirt, grime and greasiness. My hair looks very shiny and soft after shampooing my hair. The colour of my hair looks glossy. Also hair looks sorted and doesn’t get tangles easily as compared to other shampoos I’ve tried. I can run my fingers through my hair. I swear by this shampoo for my highlighted hair. It isn’t that pricey for the quantity it comes. The only problem with this is the availability and the price difference in the retail and online shops.

Pros

  • Colour protection and makes it look glossy
  • Gives smooth and soft hair
  • Cleanse hair thoroughly
  • Doesn’t tangle hair
  • Added shine to overall hair
  • Good quantity
  • Repairs damaged hair
  • Sturdy attractive packaging
  • Very affordable

Cons

  • Price variation

Ratings – 5/5

My Recommendation– If you have coloured/highlighted hair and looking for a hair color protecting shampoo try this. I have bought two bottles in my stock so that I don’t run out of stock.

 

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Hello ladies,

Jergens-Ultra-Healing-Moisturizer-500x500
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Winter is my favourite season and I love to look at my face during this season. I look much brighter and younger. That I was talking about was my facial skin. However, I hate looking at my body’s skin. They look so dry, rough and white. Also on certain days I feel itchy more than usual. I dare not use a lotion after shower or else I’ll be like a monkey scratching my hands and legs all day. I know everyone is in a hunt of buying body lotions and body butter to save their skin these days. So I thought I’ll introduce you to my all time favourite body moisturizer. Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer is a thick moisturizer which is meant to use on extra dry skin on those extra cold days. My aunts who live in states always bring 4-5 bottles of this lotion every time they come to India. So I have been using this brand since 5-6years now. I think I am experience enough to write about it now.

Product Description

DSC_0130
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Made with a blend of Vitamins C, E and B5, this fast-absorbing body lotion goes deep beneath skin’s surface to lock in moisture and heal dryness at the source, preventing its unwelcome return.

  • Penetrates through 5 layers of skin’s surface to start healing at the source
  • Helps heal extra dry skin—including heels, elbows and knees
  • Triples skin’s moisture content with continued use
  • Provides 24-hour relief

Price – Available for Rs. 403 for 496ml bottle on AMAZON. You can compare the prices online.

DSC_0135
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Packaging – It is housed in a thick sturdy white bottle which has a flip flop. If you go for a bottle which is of higher quantity, you have to simply press the pump and the lotion will drop out. The packaging of the bottle is travel friendly. Like I said my aunts always get 4-5 bottles of these from states.

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

My Experience with Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer-

This is hands down one of the best winter skin moisturizer I have ever used. I agree I always get bored of using this since I have like 4-5 bottles in stock with me. In between, I keep trying other products. But I always tend to come back to this during winters. It heals every part of dry areas of my skin and makes it smooth and shiny.  There is absolutely no need of re-application with this lotion. The cream consistency is medium, I say medium because it’s not as thick as those heavy duty body butters. It goes like a breeze on my skin. Some might find it too heavy for summers. It tends to get a bit sticky during summers. However, its perfect for winters and can be carried anytime anywhere. Earlier it was not available easily in India but now its available everywhere online. I also found it in beauty stores here in Mumbai, India.

Pros

  • Great moisturizer/lotion for winters
  • Heals the roughest points of your skin
  • Lasting moisturization
  • Travel friendly
  • No need of reapplication
  • Skin becomes smooth and soft with regular use
  • Skin doesn’t feel itchy or stretchy anymore
  • Available easily online

Cons

  • None just avoid using this during summers or it may feel sticky.

Rating – 5/5

My Recommendation–  I have been using this from so many years and I cannot force you enough to get this. Do pick up one and try it yourself. You will be hooked.

 Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello beauties,

DSC_0173
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

First Of all Compliments of the Season to all my lovelies. I wanted to post something yesterday on Christmas but I was so occupied with going to church, attending the guests, meeting relatives. I also have my Mama here who arrived 2 days back from USA and I have to accompany him everywhere he goes as he doesn’t know the city quite well. For people who don’t know me, I am partially catholic. Yeah, that happens to people when their parents have inter-caste marriage..lol! Well, I have this bad habit of getting off the topic and talking non-stop. I’ll talk about LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP TINT MAGENTA MAGIC.  We were playing Secret Santa on Facebook and I received this as a gift from my blogger friend Agnibanya Das Poddar.  I received 6 gifts from the Secret Santa game out of which this one was the Bestest I would say. I was really hoping someone would send me a lipstick. And its like Agni heard me and sent this lip matte tint and Maybelline color show nailpolish.

Product Description

  • Comfortable application

  • Vibrant matte shades

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Price– Rs. 650 for 3.5gms

DSC_0183
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Packaging– It’s a fat chubby stick which looks more like a crayon. It’s a retractable pencil crayon which doesn’t need sharpening. There is a silver cap to protect the liptint as it cannot be twisted back inside completely.  Luckily, the lip tint shade matches the packaging so you don’t have to worry about picking up the wrong shade.

My Experience with LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP TINT MAGENTA MAGIC-

I am glad Agni sent me this shade because my stash is full of reds and pinks. This is a unique magenta shade which is not too bright or in your face types. It is subtle enough to wear daily and sexy enough to wear for a party.  It provides medium to buildable coverage and easily hides pigmented lips. This shade looks a bit different on everyone based on the lip pigmentation. However, I know everyone who has this lipstick looks great in it. It has matte finish. I would suggest exfoliating your lips before application as it may accentuate fine lines of your lips. If you directly apply it then it may look flaky. Its really difficult to completely remove the lip tint as it stays put for a longer time.  I believe the formula is Bang On! However, it transfers on almost everything in comes in contact with. This liptint stays put upto 6 hrs on me and thereafter leaves a darkish pink stain.

IMG_9623
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Pros

  • Stays upto 6hrs
  • Matte finish
  • Highly pigmented
  • Lovely magenta shade
  • Wearable on all occasions
  • Quite Affordable
  • Good quantity
  • Packaging is great as no sharpener required

Cons

  • Need to exfoliate or may look flaky
  • Can be a bit drying
  • Transfers on objects easily

Rating – 4/5

Recommendation – I would definitely recommend this particular shade. It would make a great fall wear. It has great formula and staying power. Winters are perfect time to rock such shade and I would want to check more shades from this range.

Maybelline White Super fresh 12hr Compact Powder Review

Hello beauties,

IMG_8044
MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

How is everyone doing? Christmas is here and I have bought a truck load of things. Some things I need others I don’t but just because that shoes is on sale right now. Do you also indulge in such impulse shopping like me? I end up buying 3 dresses in the search of that perfect Xmas outfit. Also blame the SALE Season; everything has to be on sale this season. Anyway coming to my review, I have enough of compact powders but like I said I was tempted to purchase MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT after all those reviews flooding online. I am always in a search of a good compact powder because I want to find an alternate incase Rimmel Stay matte powder leaves my side. The Availability is such a big issue with Rimmel.

Product Description –              

IMG_8041
MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

 Price – Rs. 150 for 8gms

IMG_8037
MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

Packaging – It comes with a cute mirror and a small sponge. The sponge is average and I don’t like using it. Application with that sponge gives a patchy look to my face. Hence I’ve bought a separate soft sponge for application. At home, I use my Coastal scents powder brush which helps me give an even finish. The compact is travel friendly and has sturdy packaging.

MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

My Experience with MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT-

I think I did a good job by purchasing this compact. My shade is Shell amongst the shade selection. It perfectly suits my medium complexion. This compact has a mild florally smell which I love. With the very first application, I like how it felt on my skin. It gave a fresher, brighter look to my face. I don’t like using foundation for daily use. I apply sunscreen and finish the look by applying the compact powder. I know it has SPF which is definitely an add on advantage. This compact gives a matte look that also means it accentuates the drier patches of my face. I have to make sure my face is well moisturise first before applying powder. This will be a great compact for oily skintypes. Combination skinnies like me can use this too however moisturization first is the key..baby! It gives a matte look uptil 5hrs and then I could see my t-zones getting a bit shinier. It gives you a sheer to medium coverage. The price is pocket friendly and I am sure this will be the bestsellers for college-goers.  Overall, I love this compact for the fresh look and bright matte face.

Pros

  • Very Affordable
  • Mild floral smell
  • Great for oily skin types
  • Sheer to medium coverage
  • Gives a fresh look and brighter face
  • Mattifies your face upto 5hrs
  • Comes with a mirror & sponge
  • Has UV filters
  • Suits yellow skintones very well.

Cons

  • Sponge is average
  • Can accentuate dry areas if not moisturised
  • It doesn’t give a 12 hrs whitening.

RATING –  4.5/5

My Recommendation – This will be a great and budget friendly compact for beginners and even for college goers. I like it for everyday use and loving it this winter.
