Psychology claims that the Best Relationships are the ones you didn't expect to be in!I can so relate to this for today happens to be the birthday of my very dear friend and sister, Kainat (fondly called Nath), who I never expected to even know, let alone be friends with. She wanted a super cute post dedicated for herself and I have no idea where! Whether she meant it on her Facebook Timeline or on my blog here or wherever I didn't actually clarify it with her but I decided I should write a pretty lil post here mentioning what presents I got her so it co-relates with my blog theme about beauty and also satisfies her "Write-a-post-for-me" demand.
She is a soon-to-be bride btw and one that has absolutely no idea what is the proper emphasized meaning of "beauty". Therefore nowadays, I am giving her the 101 Basics on all things related to beauty so she knows how to look all dolled up for my Jeeja-ji (bro-in-law).
I have written a rough draft of a list on what all she should buy for herself to fill up her 'wedding vanity box' and even then, I notice that's yielding no results. Till now. And her wedding is in a few months (Feb 2014). Are you reading this, Nath? Yes, please gear up!
Anyhoo, back to the post, it is the Bride's Birthday after all, so I thought I might throw in some pieces on my own in her vanity box since she isn't making any effort. So yesterday, when I was out doing my usual shopping with another lovely friend of mine, I picked these random things for her. Here they are:
Boots Natural Collection Ice Musk Body Spray: This smells divine for anyone who has a thing for musks. It is very light and perfect for office-goers who don't want to smell like they've just gotten out of a tub fulla' perfume. Subtle and elegant. My sister in law recently bought it for herself and ever since then, I was desperate to get one for myself. Which I did and also picked up one for Nath. Hope she likes. (Even if you don't, you HAVE to say you do!).
Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me: She's been forever complaining of getting a good lip balm for herself and still hasn't. I thought I might as well give her a cult favorite - The Baby Lips. There is no need to say how yummy these are, plus the cute packaging is a heart-stealer. Cherry Me gives a pretty pink sheen to the lips and keeps them super soft. This one would be a hit with her for sure, right Babyyyy?
The Body Shop Love Etc body wash mini: Love Etc is a one of my favorite TBS scents and it makes you smell fresh and flowery all day long. I think this "mini" will induce her to purchase the "maxi" version of it so as to mollify Hubby-ji by waltzing all around the home smelling all coochie-coo.
Yay, so that's all I got for her. I really hope she likes it, and moreover, she uses them!!!
Finally a direct shoutout to my Birthday Baby, a very Happie Birthday to you my Lovely Boo and may you have many, many more with you and me side by side (wherever will the Hubby-ji of yours go? Hah, who cares as long as we are together, right?). I wish I could do a lot more for you, but for now, isi mein khush reh (stay happie with this!).
Hugs & Muahs,
