So we have put together the top 5 that we have selected! Vote for the one you love and we will convince her to buy it!
Embroidered Boy Chanel

From the latest collection of Chanel (read our review here)
This is embroidered Boy Chanel is an exceptional piece. We love the embroidered look which was a part of the entire collection and can make any outfit look feminine.
GG Marmont Velvet Chain Shoulder Bag

The soft structure, the over large flap size and the cute heart in the stitching behind are some of the reasons we loved this bag. Also it breaks the traditional monotony of black with this beautiful Petrol Blue Velvet colour that we just love!
Louis Vuitton Wight

It’s a great day to evening bag with an amazing Bordeaux down the centre that just adds to the elegant look of the bag. The Gold chain handle are adjustable making it either a cross body or a shoulder bag thus making sure you get your moneys worth. And even though it might look small it is very spacious
Prada Cahier Bag

This Calf Leather Bag with animal print details and an oversize snake gold buckle in the front just stole our heart. We love all the little details and the size is just right for a shoulder bag. The two compartments in the bag make it easy to store the essentials when going out and with a Black and Gold combination you can never go wrong!
 
Chloe Faye Shoulder Bag

We loved the colour and the shape of the Faye Shoulder Bag. It has a cool 70s vibe to it. The ring loop with hook and chain is something that caught our eye and makes this bag stand out. It transitions amazingly well from day to evening!

Bag Organisation: Top 4 Tips & Tricks

Hello bag addicts!
If you are anything like me then your entire world is in your bag and if that is the case
that means, it’s most often messy cramped and feels like it weighs a ton; in addition it gets dirtier too fast.
So I was going through the same thing. But then,  I decided that I am going to address this head on!
Before I list my Top 4 Tips & Tricks down here’s a bit about the type of bags and things I carry:
– Totes or large bags
– Everything from chapsticks to hair brushes, make up, books and pens for meetings, money perfume, coffee cup (YASS!), loose change, keys, jewellery, sanitizer, chewing gum, headphones, cellphone, charger, sunglasses etc. my essentials.

If the above is also what you carry in your bag then below are my Top 4 Tips & Tricks to sort our ever messy bag:
1. You need to separate and group your items into categories:
This helps you group them together and put them into various pouches, this way you can access them easily.
2. Separate your essentials:
I have a wallet in which I keep cash and coins and in a separate card holder I have essentials like my Id proof that is easily visible so I don’t have to keep removing it and thus in turn loosing it. I also keep my Starbucks card in the card holder for easy access. Don’t forget to keep a bit of emergency cash in it as it is so easy to just shift that into a small bag for the night.
3. Ensure you have compartmentalised wallet.
Even though we have segregated the id proof and Starbucks card into the card holder a compartmentalised wallet helps organise your cash/ coins and cards effectively to ensure that you find whatever you want whenever you require it.
4. Keep your makeup separate:
Here’s what happened, when I thought of segregating my stuff in pouches I got a pouch which stored my basic regular makeup, cards as well as house keys. A wallet which had my cash, important credit card/debit card etc.
Disaster struck, my lip gloss leaked and my Starbucks card, house keys were completely covered in icky yucky shiny gloss.
Keep two pouches or get a pouch which has compartments inside for you to separate stuff.
We love amazon collection of pouches!
So what do we always say? Have more tips, tell us in the comments below!

MAC- Studio Fix Review

Hello Lovelies!

Yes we know, we are pretty late to cover this product but then we only review products and talk about them if we USE them.

We are a team of women with oily skin, schedule full of regular meetings which gives us no time to groom ourselves and keep travelling in traffic, along with a weather that is so hot you can take oil from our skin and keep the sheikhs happy. What is one of our quick fix up our face and off to work rescue? MAC Studio Fix

IMG_0918.jpg

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation- NC 42

Mac Claims: A one-step powder and foundation that provides a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full coverage finish. Long-wearing, velvety texture allows skin to breathe.

As I walked into the store for a powder that saves time in application as well as can be used for heavy coverage of marks and under eye circles (Thank you Netflix) they suggested an NC 42, on initial application it seemed yellowish on my skin tone but in natural light or under white light as the day goes the shade settles on my skin perfectly and keeps me looking fresh all day long.

The dry powder texture absorbs oil easily and gives a matte finish, no wonder it is the go to product for all MUA’s. I am neither a Pro or a MUA but I would recommend this for all the ladies who are always on the go, and like me have no time for a daily make up routine. If you want a heavier look I would recommend putting it over a liquid foundation base, the good thing about MAC products are they don’t let your skin feel heavy with their product applications and is dermatologically tested for all skin types.

Product Packaging:

IMG_0920.jpg

IMG_0919.jpg

It’s a got a black outer casing and there are 3 compartments inside. One is for the mirror, the second is for the product and the third is for a sponge case. I was quiet surprised when the MUA at the MAC store showed me the sponge available inside, it really is a time saver and very easy to clean.

Coverage duration: As the day goes the powder settles well on my skin and keeps my face looking fresh, one re- touch is required for it to last 6-7 hrs. There were no cakey layers on my skin and with just a  cleansing, moisturing and application of the powder my skin looks like it has a natural make up look.

To end this, I highly recommend this product to anyone who has no time or just wants to invest in an amazing loose powder.

More oily skin friendly product reviews coming soon!

Until next time,
