Boyfriend Jeans - Outfit post

Parc de Sceaux, France

Looking for the 'Boyfriend' (Not really :P )
Heya peeps! Nowadays I am interested in doing a lot of outfit posts. And yes, I too am being tempted by the 'Boyfriend Jean' trend. So here is my idea of styling it. 
I won't do much talking in this post. I love how the pictures turned out. So I will let them do the talking.

The flower market in Rennes - Part 2

Flower market in Rennes-Photography
It has been a year since I moved to Paris from Rennes (part-I). But I got to visit it again a few weeks ago and happened to see this pretty flower market there. Here are some pictures that I managed to capture. I have some interest in photography ;)

Coloured contact lenses from Lensvillage

When I was small, I believed that your eyes turn grey/white when you are possessed. Because that's how they depicted a possessed person in horror films in my country. As I grew up, I realised that it was the effect of contact lenses. I was eager to try coloured contact lenses someday. 

I started wearing glasses when I was 14. But I hated them. They are uncomfortable when I dance or do sports. Going for contact lenses was only a dream because my dad didn't allow me. But finally I managed to wear lenses after coming to France. 

But still I couldn't wear color lenses because finding coloured contact lenses with correction was difficult. Even if I found, a prescription is a must to buy contact lenses and you have to pay heavily for the ophthalmologist and the lenses. 

At last, it was LENSVILLAGE who made my dream come true! 
Here is my first ever pair of coloured contact lenses!!

Cotton candy

I went searching for a white Jean and a white shirt (they are must-haves in the wardrobe!) for my birthday. I was skimming through some shops and entered Bershka and there....was this cutie skirt! Not only this. Bershka has amazingly pretty Spring Collection. Must check it out. I am eyeing some more pieces in the Collection which I hope to bring into my possesion soon (evil_ grin >...< ) :D

We had a beautiful sunny Sunday in Paris. So I made use of the day to flaunt my pretty skirt, and shoes..and stockings..and sunglasses...and all my Oh-so-pretty stuff!! So I'll do no more talking and let you see the pictures...

Yves Rocher PurCalmille Moisturizing Skin Cream

It seems that Yves Rocher is becoming my favourite brand when it comes to skin care. Most of the products I use is by Yves Rocher. 

Yves Rocher Purecalmille Moisturizing Skin Cream

When I finished my Herborist moisturizing cream, I continued the Biotique Bio-Coconut Whitening and Brightening cream as my daily moisturizer. But it seems too oily as a day moisturizer. So I searched for something light and effective and thus decided on Yves Rocher (it is bio too!).

MAC Russian Red

'When you want something, the universe conspires to bring it to you'. I believe in it. Atleast in this case. 
This is how it happened. 

MAC Russian Red

Since I never dared to wear a bright shade, I got a sample of MAC Russian Red from 'The Body Needs' to see how it looked on me. But what I liked more was the natural colour it gave my lips when applied slightly. I saved it preciously because it was like my holy grail lipstick. I wanted to buy a REAL RUSSIAN RED but I kept hesitating (dunno why. Maybe the price? or I'm lazy? 0-o ).

Yves Rocher Moroccan clay mask

Tradition de Hammam-Yves Rocher Moroccan clay mask

I love masks. Mostly home-made. I prepare my own, mixing whatever I like from the kitchen so that it is natural. When I saw 'Moroccan argan oil', I wanted to try it. So this is my first ever product with argan oil. It is a face and hair mask. The only mask I have ever used on my hair before this was the home-made Shikakai powder.

♥ Benefit Silky-finish Lipstick in shade Good-to-go

Presenting you my first Benefit Lipstick. I got it long back (a year ago!) but I didn't talk about it here on the blog. In fact, I have a lot of stuff in my stash which are left unspoken (I have no idea why o_0). But I showed you the Benefit Fine One One Sheer Illuminator that I got on time :)
 Okay, let's talk about this lippie now. Are you Good-to-go?

Benefit Silky-finish Lipstick in shade Good-to-go
 It is a browny plum shade (more on the plum/berry side). It is slightly sheer and looks natural. It doesn't dry out the lips. In sunlight it is more like pinkish brown and in dusky lights, it looks plum-brown. It doesn't stay long (maximum for half-an-hour) if you doesn't eat or drink, because it transfers easily (because of its creamy texture).
