My Summer Loves :)

As a kid,I could never understand the poem "Shall I Compare Thee To A Summers Day". I kept wondering,what came in Shakespeare's mind to compare his beloved's beauty to a summers's day. Obviously I had no idea summers in England are cool and pleasant. But back in our beloved motherland, you say summer and I am reminded of heat,sweat,sun tans,umbrellas,scarfs,sunblock...blah..blah..blah. So much so that I even feel like choosing my clothes and footwear on the basis of SPF they contain ;) Funny but that's the sorry state of summers in India,more so if you are a Homo Sapien and choose North India as your Habitat.
But summers are not just about scorching heat and considering we are brand ambassadors of Positive Thinking and quite adept in finding a silver line behind dark clouds,we do find our ways of beating the summer sun. The rising mercury has its own fair share of beauty in the form of pastels,flowing chiffons,cool ice-creams,peachy cheeks,coral lips and fuschia nails :) (Oh! I wanna dress up now)
Alright stopping the rant and fast forward to My Summer Loves:

1.Jovees Sun block SPF45
 Bought this last month from an online shopping site and almost loving it.Its water resistant,oil-free,has SPF 45,non-greasy and affordable..Do I need to say anything more?

2.Patanjali Aloevera Gel
 I keep this in my refrigerator and the moment I return home from a harsh sun,I apply this aloevera gel. It instantly soothes the skin and to quite an extent keeps acne and blemishes at bay.Totally love it.

3.Favorite Summer Lipsticks:
I am a self confessed lipstick addict (though I admit my collection would be super micro against that of you gals) Currently I'm loving a lot of peachy-pinky-corals..almost anything with an orange undertone.Few of are My Summer Loves are:

4.Favorite Summer Nail Paints:
I love painting my nails and toes and summers are times when your feet come out of shoes and socks,requires pampering and needs show off ;)
My Summer Loves are:

5.Perfume: Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline
Apart from a few Itars which are my patent and I swear by them,this is one perfume I am lovin' these days.I am bad in describing fragrance (yet to study the notes),will take some time and do the review!

6.Diamonds Pearls & Junk:
 I am though not a big jewelery fan,but whatever tiny miny I wear,I like them to compliment the whole look..some traditional and some contemporary..enjoy the pics!!!


Can you guess the price of the multi coloured chunky beads necklace? I'm sure you can't...guess guess..I tell u later :)

7.N Fresh Refreshing Facial Wipes:
I picked up these at dollar store randomly.You can read what all it does on the pack itself..and it stands true to most of what it says.Its refreshing and it is alchohol free.

Apart from these,I'm loving coloured pencil eyeliners in blue,green and plum and apart from personal care and makeup I'm loving Ghar Ki Lassi  and Aam ka Panna :) :) :)

Hope you all enjoyed the post. Do share your summer loves :)

Happy Summers :)

  1. Lovely post sweetie :D So loving the introduction :D Homo sapien and choose N.India as habitat LOL :P
    Does Aloe help keeping acne at bay? Blemishes too? I don't have access to natural gel, have to depend on store bought ones! Is it worth it? Lemme know! :)
    Happy Blogging! :)

    1. Hey Namita..Thank u so much sweets,coming from you,it sure does mean something..u write sooo well.
      Well Aloevera i've heard and read solves so many skin problems,in my case it has surely made my skin acne free n reduced the spots too,i often use it in place of my night cream :)
      go ahead n give it a try,if not helpful,it won't even harm!

    1. Hey Doc..thanks a ton..those were some compliments..I dunno if I deserve coz I'm lazy writer :(
      Well Patanjali says its pure aloevera gel,though it has a very strong smell and added green colour to it,but I guess the gel part is pure...moreover it gives noticeble results to me.

  13. Nice post.. I would love to have Patanjali's Aloe vera gel, but the place where I live doesn't have any Patanjali stores :(

    I have never used Jovees products, may give it a try.. But I have super sensitive skin that acts differently every time :(
