25 Things I Wish I Could Tell My Younger Self : Part 1

Hi everybody!

It was my birthday recently, and I feel overwhelmed to have reached the quarter mark, a silver jubilee of sorts if you will.

As with all birthdays that have come post mid-teens, this one too bore slight hues of melancholy. I no longer am over-enthusiastic about adding another year to my age, not because I fear to turn old, but because that +1 makes me reflect on my previous days and all the things I wish I had known then.
I get it, wisdom comes with experience, but I’ve always felt that wisdom also comes from delving within oneself. And with that thought, here I am, compiling a list of 25 things I wish I could tell my younger self. I hope this can serve as gentle reminders of the things that matter to me as I make my way towards 30, but as I put my thoughts down, I wish they can help you too, whatever be your age.

After all, it’s just a number, right?

I’ve broken down this post into parts, as it is a lot of food-for-thought, and much better digested in small doses

Reasons why you should wear a sports bra

We always pay such close attention to our clothes, don't we? We take so much time to
choose them; we take time to dress ourselves up.
Unfortunately, many of us do not pay attention to the innerwear, and, the one thing most of
us tend to completely ignore is - the Sports Bra.
You may think that sports bras are an easy job but finding one which fits you perfectly &
does its job well is pretty complicated.

And while all of us love our traditional bras & lingerie, the ever-humble, but very much
necessary Sports Bras are quite often forgotten.
Here are 7 reasons why you need to get & wear a Sports Bra

Dot & Key : Underarm Color Correction Mask & Serum

A few days back I had mentioned these 2 products on our Instagram stories and some of you messaged me asking for more details about them. 
So, since I have been using the Dot & Key Underarm Color Correction Mask & Serum since over 5 months now, I thought why not cover the products on the blog and let you all know more.
Take a look :

(Oh & I have shared close up photos of my underarm before & after applying the mask and serum....just a heads up. If such photos gross you out, skip looking!).

A while back I did a small Forest Essentials Haul & the Tejasvi Emulsion was a part of it. Like I said in that post - I wanted to get into at home facial massages. 

Now that I am fairly regular in doing them, it is the right time to share my thougths about this product.

LA Girl Fanatic Blush Palette - Blushed Babe

I love blushes. Surprisingly though, I do not buy a lot of them. 
I have a few good ones in my stash & I am quite happy with them. 
However, the one thing missing from my "blush collection" was a blush palette. I really wanted to add one in there (Hey, they'd come in super handy while travelling! I would just need to carry one palette!)

There have been a few palettes in the past which have tempted me a lot (the Estee Lauder Violette collection....I am looking at you!), but their price tags always stopped me. 
And then, the LA Girl Fanatic Palettes on Nykaa! I was won over immediately. Nothing could stop me now :D *air fist pump* YESSS!

Blue Eyeshadow Look : Monsoon Makeup

I do love me a nice blue on the eyes. I will however admit that before today, I kept blue limited to an eyeliner or a blue toned kajal/kohl on the lower lash line. Last year I picked up a blue mascara to dive further into the color. 
But never did I think that I would do a full blown BLUE EYESHADOW LOOK!

But, I have been playing with colors lately! And I am loving it!

Also, since it looks like the rains aren't coming this side any time soon (while most of the country has started enjoying their rainy days)...I thought I might as well enjoy some shades of blue, very apt for the monsoon:D
