Swatch: Bourjois Paris Blush in 33 Lilas D’or

Hi girls, I got this blush for my b’day last week and have been wearing it everyday ever since. I love how natural it looks.

What makeup means to me

It started out with a liner black, a long long time back. When I was just a teenager, a fledgling but all too eager. This bottle is all I need, I said. It lines my eyes and even adorns my forehead. When I was a twenty something, a working girl with air beneath her wing. There was paint on my nail’s tips and a bit of colour on my lips.

Finding Happiness

For a long time now, I have associated happiness with smaller things in life. Simple, everyday things that would make me happy every single day. I have written What makes me happy post before as well. Actually, two of them. Here is another What makes you happy post. While the actual points may be different, there is a common flavour running through them. And that being, a lot of these are small things. Needless to say, my daughter would regularly feature in these! Even though I am sometimes fed up of her antics, she is the greatest joy in my life.
