1. What are up to this weekend?

I read a book last night (after a long time) and it was really good. The novel is called Marching to Zion, its a tragic love story of a Black man and a white Jewish woman set in the early 1900s in America. The story spans the lives of the many characters across a few years, through some troubling times of riots, depression, floods and its very well written (I finished it in one sitting!). Recommended!

 

 

2. A beauty brand you would like to try next?

Makeup Geek!! I have heard so much about their products and been thinking of trying it since ages! Must place an order soon. Have any of you tried their products? I am eyeing the eye shadows and pigments, any recommendations?

 

 

3. If you had to give up one color for life, which one would you give up?

We are talking strictly clothes here. Even so, it is difficult to choose! I think I would go with green. Its the color I wear the least and I only like a certain tone of green. I almost said brown but then I wouldn’t want to give up tan, beige and the whole family of neutrals!

1. What is your favorite kind of shoe?

 

I love wedges as they add some height and are fairly comfortable to wear as well! I’m on the lookout for a nice pair of nude wedges and this pair from flipkart look pretty good!

2. Are you wearing any fragrance today?

 

Yes! Wearing Roberto Cavalli Nero Assoluto which I received in the May edition of My Envy Box. Its a beautiful  woody floral scent with a warm vanilla dry down. I generally don’t go for warm scents but love this one!

2. Your favorite beauty product at the moment?

 

I rediscovered the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick compact Bronze recently. I had switched to liquid highlighters for a while but came back to it and I’m loving it! I used it on my look post HERE.

3. Paper books or ebooks?

 

I love the feel of a real paper book. Though I do read more of ebooks now but it doesn’t quite give me the same feeling as a real book! Some of my fondest memories of childhood are of books, libraries and book stores. I still get a little thrill inside when I see a book store. (p.s – Does anyone know where I can find an English book store/library in Tokyo?)

3. What’s your emergency skin care fix?

 

My skin care emergencies generally involve a zit since I have oily, breakout prone skin. I always keep The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil at hand to subdue any sudden breakouts and it always serves me well!
