1. What is your favourite item of clothing?
I love clothes almost as much as I love makeup, and to choose just one piece is so difficult! But if I had to choose one, it would be my black waist length peacoat from Express. I love coats and if I could wear one all the time, I would. I especially love this one because it is warm, has some nice details, and looks really smart when worn with jeans, pants, anything! The photo does not do it justice, but I am too lazy to put it on and take a picture.
2. What are your biggest obsessions?
Beauty products, shoes, and the internet.
3. Who inspires you?
People are who intelligent and modest, and who are able to have philosophical conversations. My fiance and my close friends also inspire me.
4. Who is your favourite designer and why?
Michael Kors for the wearability of his pieces, and I think Randolph Duke makes the best gowns. If I were going to a fancy award show, I would want him to dress me.
5. What is your favourite song ever?
6. What is your favourite song right now?
7. If you were a sweetie, what would you be?
Cadbury Flake. Not really because I think I am a flake, but it tastes so good!
8. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet--what words would you use to describe
sindoor, sunset, the trees in alaska, and a peacock feather (sorry Fantastic, but I love those colors too!)
9. What's your favourite film?
Dil To Pagal Hai - Yes I love me some Bollywood
10. Who's your favourite actor?
American - Will Smith because he makes great movies. Indian - Anupam Kher because if I were an actress, I would want him playing my dad.
11. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
With my friend in Atherton, CA. She just had a baby boy and I can't wait to see her and the baby.
12. What are your 3 favourite smells?
Lilies, Singapore (yes, I love the smell of that country), and sweets baking in the oven
13. What are your 3 favourite tastes?
strawberries, chocolate, and anything spicy
14. What is your most treasured possession?
My relationships with friends and family. I know that is intangible, but without my loved ones, no material item has any value to me.
15. What did you always want to do/be when you grew up?
A lawyer. Then I found out how much reading they have to do.
16. If you were an ice-cream, what flavour would you be?
17. If someone made a short film of your life, who would play you?
18. What would your perfect afternoon consist of?
Being with my family and closest friends and laughing till we lose our voices
19. If you were a flower, what would you be?
A lily - the pink one that smells devine
20. Tell me a random thing--a quote, line from a song, book, movie..
Life is not to fear, life is to enjoy! ~Third Eye Blind

Another great thing about this brush is that is has dark colored bristles. I don't like when my brushes get stained so I tend to not like white bristles. I have, however, mastered the art of cleaning my face brushes so they don't get stained, but I have a harder time with white eye brushes.

His passing has definitely made me think back about my memories as a kid sitting in my living room with my best friend who lived down the street and belting out his tunes. In fact, his Dangerous album was the first CD I ever got. I am so happy that the events of the past decade are not affecting how the world views him today. Sure, there will be people who only think about the negative but he really did impact the world in a positive way, and it's heartwarming to know that the majority of the world is embracing his contributions. For all the desis out there, just think how many Bollywood songs have imitated MJ.
Anyways, everything about MJ's passing has captured my attention and makes me sad. The public memorial was beautiful, wish I could have been there in person. If you guys have any thoughts about this recent event, please feel free to share them in the comments.

I know usually we fly for work or to go meet people we haven't seen for awhile so sometimes we want to look good when we get there. My minimal routine seemed to work really well, and the 5 beauty items fit easily into my purse. I even put the moisturizer into a little travel jar so it would be compact. Another option is to do this at the airport after landing, but at that point I just want to get to my final destination, not spend more time in an airport bathroom.
On another note, I'm not much of a soda or beverage person, I am all about the H20, so I always get excited to see all the beverage options on the plane because I never have them at home. However I am learning to resist the temptation while traveling and have beverage control and drink only water. I was successful on this last trip so hopefully it will get easier.
What are your airplane rituals?
This set includes 5 products packaged together to achieve a minimalist, lightly sexy look. I love this set because it features 5 of MACs best products, and you can use all of them! Unlike many sets where you only love a couple of the products. The set includes:
Shell Pearl Beauty Powder - Check out the technique mentioned below.
Mulch Eyeshadow - Love this eyeshadow color! I use it in the crease and it complements so many different colors!
Gleam Eyeshadow - Another favorite! I am all about pinks and shimmer!
Love Nectar Lustreglass - A holy grail color of mine. I even got my mom addicted to this one.
promo-sized Zoom Lash - My second fave MAC mascara. My favorite is still plushlash but you can't go wrong with this one too!
181SE Buffer Brush - These are fab! Especially for applying powders and for blending!
This set is limited edition, and only available at Nordstrom during their Anniversary sale. You can call your local Nordies and preorder, which I recommend because they will go fast. Especially since these sets are a steal at $59.50, and each set is valued at $100!!
Ok, back to the Beauty Powders. So the Shell Beauty Powder in this set is a light pink/white shimmery color that would look great as a highlight on top of blush, but I learned that it also works great as a luminizer! The MA at Nordstrom told me that you can achieve a flawless, glowing complextion by applying foundation, then applying the beauty powder all over the face. Finally, apply a skin tone powder, such as the Mineralize Skin Finish Natural. She had used it on herself and it looked amazing! Almost like using a luminizer or lustre drops. I am going to try this technique with the beauty powders I do have and see how it turns out. Will keep you posted on the results!
