Merry Christmas! (Belated, I guess)

So… Christmas is over and there hasn’t been any posts on this blog lately… not even nails!

What the Outrage!

Wait and watch this space!

Merry Christmas!

20% off on Real Techniques brushes and extra discount at iHerb.com

If you checked my tweets or some of my previous posts, you”d have read that I accidentally ordered stuff off internet but I was happy about it. Yes. I do such things sometimes.

The website was iHerb.com.

Use the code: QLD935 to receive an additional discount of $5 for less than $40 purchases or $10 discount for purchases costing more than $40.

iHerb.com is the recommended website to order Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman of their super famous (and my favorite channel), pixiwoo. I love them so much that the first ever post on ofprettythings.net was their wonderful brush. You can read the review and my experience with the iHerb.com purchase by clicking HERE.

I already ordered these the first time:

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, On Location, Travel Essentials, 3 Brushes + Case
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Base/Flawless, Expert Face Brush

And this time, I ordered these ”accidentally”. *sigh*

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Base/Flawless, Core Collection, 4 Brushes + Case
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Eyes/Enhanced Starter Set, 5 Brushes + Case
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Eyes/Enhanced, Fine Liner Brush
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Finish/Perfected, Setting Brush
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Finish/Perfected, Blush Brush

These will be delivered today. I am so excited! But I am here in Pune so will not be able to get my hands on them for 2 more weeks. :(

I am only interested in the Stippling Brush which I currently feel is unnecessary because I love my Expert Face Brush and their limited edition Duo Fiber Brushes. Then my collection for Real Techniques will be complete! :P

The site also sells Ecotools products. I know a lot of you would want those as well. :)

I always use a coupon code for extra discount. You can use the code: QLD935 to receive an additional discount of $5 for less than $40 purchases or $10 discount for purchases costing more than $40.

Hope this information is helpful. :)

Quick and Final wedding post

I haven’t blogged a lot this month. I am afraid this will remain the case for a few more weeks. Planning and making a wedding happen is a huge task, apparently. Today I wanted to quickly blog about the wedding.

Wedding

 

To plan the wedding properly, I researched and found a list of things that might have to be done from here. Then I set about adding these to a google spreadsheet and assigning to people: me, the dude and my brother.

There were around 65 appropriate items in the list and with 6 days left to the wedding, there are a few left.

Review: Inglot YSM Cream Foundation

Hi!! Remember me?

I know. I know. Sorry for being MIA for a so long! There was just a lot to do personally and professionally. All those are being dealt with and some have been already done and forgotten. So… onto the review…

Today’s review is on my favorite foundation EVER! Of late I have become a minor Inglot-freak. Inglot, as a brand, is a much cheaper option to high-end products. The quality of all the products I have used so far is top class and they tempt me to buy more and more stuff from the brand. Keep reading for the actual review…
