My Karwachauth Makeup and Bangles :)

I have never celebrated Karwachauth in 8 years that I have been married, partly because it is not a festival celebrated in South India and mostly because starving the whole day never did seem that appealing an idea to me. This year, though, the fasting bug bit me too….blame it all on a bunch of crazy friends I have from the blog world ๐Ÿ˜€ By around 11 p.m. when I did manage to spot the moon for a nanosecond through the clouds, any romance and charm I had associated with fasting had all but disappeared, but something tells me, I will be searching for the moon next year and all the years to come from now on!!

This is for Cali and Rati – my crazy blog friends who manage to make me do the craziest things ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

The pic I took yesterday was a bright shining light – so this is my today ka attempt ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. I will forgive her since she is not in her senses right now… :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose:

      1. This Radhika is so mad. she was so scared of posting piccys and all. grrr prrrr…I had to convince and plead her so much… and then she was demanding that I have to say nice with a smiley and all…and then I said nice with smiley and all….I had to beloo so many papads..finally she agreed. SO I am being good to her for a day… :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat:

          1. LOL Beloooo papads :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

            Rads – got lots lots of bhau – dunno why she needs it since she has all the Chanel ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

            OOOH you know with all the the :can: ing and the :poop: ing – my Room mate is called PEEEEE – like the Alphabet but we all know what it also sounds like and I have another friends that everyone calls POOO because they nicknamed here Poule ( which is chicken in french i think ?:-) ) – what are the chances I have friends calleds Pee and Pooo :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/

            1. :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: pee and pooo are Janhavi’s friends…and errr..I always have this feeling ke whoever uses MAC is superawesome at makeup ๐Ÿ˜€

            2. I also have a friend called Poo. Her real name is pooja but we mostly call her Poo. I must tell her what it means. I am sure she would want to throw :poop: at me after that :rotfl:

  4. Beautifuul eyes ! Touchwood Rads you look so cute and innocent! :cute: I can’t imagine you are the same Rads who says all the funny & hilarious things & throws cans & :poop: at Rati & others! LOL

    BTW I see some wisdom hair, me too have some & recently applied Henna( Donno what the beauty parlour lady added,my scalp has become MAROON in color! :idk: ) I hope you don’t mind me saying this!

    1. Rads aur seedhi saadhi! :hypnotized:

      I love our CANS -WALI Rads! Agar woh nahi hoti toh IMBB dull aur boring hota thaa na!

      BTW Rati you rock, you convinced her to post this look & we got see this cute lady! :victory:

  5. Heheheheeee… no wisdom lack of wisdom hair!!! I have just left it that way recently, though, because I had skin sensitivity to something else. Henna isn’t a good option for grey hair Uzma…well at least I don’t think it is ๐Ÿ˜ though it is a very safe option for someone like me cos I don’t have to worry about skin reactions.

    1. So what do I do Rads? Give me some beauty tips na pluzzz! :struggle:

      I have started getting them few months back & IDK what to do? ๐Ÿ˜

  6. Congrats, looking stunning Rads ๐Ÿ™‚ :-* :-* :-* :-* :chic: :chic: :chic: :chic: :chic: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :present:
    Also as it was an exception after 8 years, for fasting and putting up some bangles…you should have asked your hubby to open an exception also and stop acting like a jerk for a day ๐Ÿ˜› :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

  7. Not the right person obviously to give gyaan on this, but there are soooo many easy-peasy hair colours in the market right now..if you don’t have a problem with skin sensitivity to them. You could get one and try a patch test on your skin…and then use them. Henna makes grey hair a brassy colour I feel (errr cos I have tried that ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ :D) plus grey hair is already drier than regular really doesn’t need any additional drying. You could try colouring only your wise hair ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ And I for one absolutely do not believe that anything reverses it.

    1. Heheheheee Neha..he loves telling me I look silly dressing up…errr..I guess partly cos I feel perfectly silly doing it too ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ and I really am not this traditional traditional kind of person he finds it terribly funny ๐Ÿ˜

      1. ha ha
        i know
        they actually know we look soooo pretty na
        so they smile in an awkward way and make us feel duh
        but by the end of it all ….they do tell the truth
        hi hi :giggle:

    1. Eh? CLEAR???????????????? I have messed up skin – ok well at least bad by blogging standards – but I am least bit bothered about it ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Is actually clearing up a bit now…am using Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 and Shiseido Oil-free Mattifying Moisturizer…won’t change these two whatever else I change. And I am using Kama Face Cleanser every single day. All this helps, but trust me, my skin is nowhere near clear at all… :-(( :-(( :-((

      Concealer + Foundation + no close-ups of the face helps too :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: And I just don’t really care too much about it cos I have seen worse days ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Hiii Nidhi..and too bad about the rainy weather…was cloudy all day yesterday here and I was grumbling so much…really admire you for fasting despite knowing that you might not see the moon! :-* :-*

    1. I told ya that in blore the moon comes out at 11pm only re ๐Ÿ™ that’s why mah hubby got timeanddate calendar ๐Ÿ˜€ it said moon raised at 8:45pm this time ๐Ÿ˜›

  9. Wow Rads fasting for the first time and you managed to stay till 11 p.m. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ :pain: :pain: :pain:
    More than food I will neva be able to survive full day w/o water so I will tell my husband stop tellin me to fast and hit the gym.This way u’ll surely live longer :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Sharon..I have fasted before – Saturday Saturday no water-food fasting – this one was actually wayyy easier cos I ate in the morning before sunrise ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ but waiting for the moon to show up really got me all irritated..but me all planned for next year… ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Tx Nids ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Am still wondering what you have ordered.. :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

  10. wow you look so different from your gravatar for once i thought it might be someone new in imbb ๐Ÿ˜› it really does not look like you have oily skin!!

    its so nice to know people here have inspired you so much to do karwachauth :-)) you should have asked for a nice gift from hubby afterall you doing it for him ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. I don’t know if these are they typical ones..but I have bought the exact same ones from Jaipur really not sure. I love the glass bangles from Hyderabad more than these mirrored ones…those are really simple and prettty according to me..I went bonkers when I went there and bought TONS of bangles ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

          1. Nids I am not from Hyderabad..just went there for a 3-day trip once..but these are from streets that run straight off the Charminar…is full and full and full of small small shops that seem to sell nothing but bangles…actually, there are streets that run off the main streets and then more branches off those…as you go deeper in you find better bangles…the glass ones, that is. The main streets had more of the really beautiful expensive bangles which I did not buy.

          2. Even i’m not from hyderabad.. i think there are local markets full of bangles… and yah like rads said, near charminar… its like a bangle market

  11. Hey Radhika….So pretty, so very different from your avatar pic, thank you for posting these pics, and very lovely bangles indeed. Great!

    1. Sabrina :-* :-* I wanted to post piccys cos you all post ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ me verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry scared otherwise hehehheheheeeeeeeeee ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Oh, I can see the MF gloss you bought, I’m going to check this gloss in a day or two. Still have to do the make up swatches I promised everyone (on my birthday post).!!

  13. Ratidooooo – quick note – theres a typo in the title so its reads as karvachuath instead of karvachauth – reminds me of a very datty dattty word ๐Ÿ˜›

  16. Radhika, please tell me about the Shiseido oil-free mattifying moisturiser you are using. Does it reduce oiliness and give a totally dry matte finish? Need something like that very badly.

    1. It has a powdery finish to it..I don’t if I am explaining has this silica powder kind in it..and it is absolutely oil-free, so not only are you getting an oil-free moisturizer, the powder kind of gives a bit of an absorbent effect for any oiliness that might come up later. Its not very obvious – like you are not going to feel any powder as such on your face, but its there. Have reviewed it earlier on my blog..

  17. luuuurrrrrvvvvvvveee the bangles! me wants me wants!!!

    maybe u shud wear them more often… then ur hubs will get used to them and not call them names… wat say?
