Dirty Works - Eye Care !

Hey Everyone,
So I visited Sainsburys and found this total rip off of Soap&Glory, but I absolutely love it!. The prices are so amazing, and the packaging is also very sweet. I'm having a bit of an eye dilemma at the moment, I have already spent around £60 trying out some high end/drug store products, and none of them have worked. I have my eye on an Origins eye cream, and also a Dr Perricone eye treatment.

However, I think for now I have found a dynamic duo from "Dirty Works" which can do a nice little job for the time being. 

How cute is this eye mask ?

I really love the fun behind this brand!

Verdict - Eye Mask 10/10
I think Eye Mask's are probably the only definite cure for puffy eyes, when I seen this little beauty I could not resist. I love how it's fun like Soap&Glory but so much cheaper, I'm not saying it's better.. but it sure is good enough for me. It can also be used warm, as well as cold! - By using it warm it targets stress, and this can be done by putting it in hot water for a few minutes. I took it out the freezer this morning, and my puffy eyes are gone and feel nice and awake. I would say before you spend £20 + on an expensive eye cream, try one of these cute pamper masks out first!. 

Verdict - Eye Cream 8/10
I can't give you a definite review for this product, as I have only been using it 2 days. However, I can comment on it a little. Firstly, the texture of this eye cream seems to start off as a cream but rub out into a gel like formulae, which is nice. It is better used when cold, but it also works well at room temperature. I would like to praise it's amazing moisturising ability, as the Shea butter has already started softening my under eye area. It does have a slightly funny smell, it took me ages to think about this one ... but I think it smells like dandelion ? it's not a strong smell though. I also researched that dandelion is great for reducing puffy face/eyes, so maybe this is why I can seem to smell it ?. I will need to get back to you in more detail on this eye cream, but for a few £'s I think this and the mask will work to create a good enough resolution to any under-eye problems.

OOTD - Pretty Pastel !

Hey Everyone,
So I'm jumping on the pastel train at the moment, I have just come back from the Balearic Islands and I'm excited to get back into blogging. 

My top is from Primark It's a really light weight nude long sleeved top, which is perfect for the transition between Winter & Spring. My trousers are from George and they were a great find, I love this shade of Mint Green. My Jewellery is from Swarovski & Vivienne Westwood, and my handbag is my Louis Vuitton Speedy.. OH! and I forgot that my loafers are from ASOS.

Hey Everyone,
Today has been another lovely day in the UK, and I'm making the most of this OOTD opportunity!. I have been out with my sister today, just doing a few routine things in our local city.

What am I wearing ?
Top - Tommy Hilfiger Polo Shirt
Shorts - Hollister
Shoes - ASOS Loafers 
Handbag - Louis Vuitton Speedy
Accessories - Chanel earrings & Versace sunglasses

Jewel By India R Cosmetics

Hi Everyone,
Last week I launched my business Jewel By India R Cosmetics. It has been a very complicated journey, I had to postpone some great ideas because of importing rules/costs/laws. I have financed Jewel by myself, and even the production of a lip balm requires a lot of behind the scenes work. 

I'm making this post with hope that some of my lovely followers will help promote my website

I'm currently selling Honey Bea Balm (above)
Each product is customised with a Swarovski crystal & only the finest ingredients are used.

Coming soon
Rasvilla Balm
Jewel Mint Balm

Thanks for taking the time to read this post

Fitness Diary ! + Tips and Tricks !

Hi Everyone,
I have decided to do a post about fitness, I'm definitely not a gym bunny.. but it does make me feel better, and It also helps a lot with my anxiety!. I'm not trying to loose weight, I just want to feel better in myself and be more toned. 

Diary - Entry 1
I have joined a new gym at my local 5* Resort, it's a lot nicer that my other gym .. which was full of people who loved themselves and were obviously on steroids. I need to feel comfortable when at the gym, I don't like it when it becomes some kind of show. My aim this summer is to be more healthy and regain some of my confidence. My problem area is my stomach, as I'm never happy with it!.

Fitness Tip
Don't ever ban anything from your diet/fitness as it will only encourage you to eat it more, it's more important to stay focused on what you want to achieve.. even if you slip up now and then!.

Motivation Tips
New Gym Clothes!
If you want to join a gym, then look for one with swimming/spa facilities, as this will increase motivation!.
Try a class, Zumba is known for it's feel good factor!
Use Maxi-tone/sculptress OR Herbal Life - If you need a Safe helping hand!

Raspberry & Chocolate smoothie - Brilliant for shedding stomach fat

1/2 cup skimmed milk
6oz Healthy Vanilla Yoghurt
1/4 cup of Chocolate chips
1 cup of raspberries 

I will probably re-post in 2 weeks time ! <3

Updated Review - Dior Rosy Glow Blush

Hey Everyone !
Okay, So back in January/Febuary I had a surge of blushers .. NARS/Chanel/Dior/Benefit, and I liked them all but couldn't find a definite favourite. I purchased the Blush De Horizon from Chanel on a pure I WANT IT adrenaline rush. I do like it, but I haven't spent as much time with it as the Dior. I do have other posts on this blush, but I find it helpful to do updated reviews as well.  I also wanted to do another post, because I'm starting back with my business degree tomorrow, and I probably wont get to post again for a few days.

I have found myself going for this blusher a lot, and now it's even managed to be a permanent in my make-up bag. I really love the cool bubble gum Pink shade that this blush offers, simply because it's really nice for Spring, and it goes well with this seasons on-trend pastel theme. I'm wearing it in the shot below, which is also below as part of my OOTD Post.

What is so special about this product ?
 It's unique to every persons skin tone which is really amazing. I think it's a similar colour whatever your skin tone, but I'm guessing some tones in it will deepen/lighten to suit. It's also not a bad price for a high-end blusher it's around the £30.00 mark, My Chanel blush was £50.00 ( So I best get loving that one soon )

Rating ?
10/10 - It's a perfect Spring blush ! 

India. R 

It would be great to hear what blusher you are currently loving ?


OOTD - Feels like summer !

Hey Lovelies,
I'm going a bit wild with the OOTD's at the moment, but when the sun is out it just makes you feel like doing more cute outfits. I haven't quite been brave enough to put shorts on today, because its slightly windy. I only popped out to my local town, to put some petrol in my car.. but I thought it was worth an OOTD ;).




What am I wearing ?

Make-up - Chanel & YSL
Shirt - Aqua/Mint Green from Primark  
Vest - White Vest Top from Primark 
Jeans - American Brand 
Shoes - ASOS Loafers
Handbag - Chanel PST
Sunglasses - Versace

I'm currently selling lip balms, which are made from the best ingredients and are packaged very glamorously using a Swarovski Crystal. They would also make fantastic gifts ! <3

I am desperate to get my hands on the AMAZING Primark Blue & Pink blazers! but they are always sold out :(.

YSL Glossy Stain (18) - Review

Hey Everyone,
I love to buy a few things from duty free, I mean why not with the discount ;). I got myself my third bottle of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua! .. and I simply caved into buying a YSL glossy stain. I seen Claudia from the ClaudiaCouture with the same one, and it looked great on her. I love Kim Kardashian, and her sisters.. and number 18 is a shade they would definitely wear. 
(I like to use it over my YSL Volupte in 19)

( They are very similar in their tones )


Firstly, What another brilliant lip product from YSL! - If you have not tried a glossy stain, then I would seriously advise it. The smell is amazing and fruity as normal from YSL, and the texture is like a combination of every lip product possible. I found that this shade doesn't stay on my lips brilliantly, as it's a very milky Pink. However, I have been able to pair it with my YSL 19 .. and it's a magic duo. The price of these is usually £22.50 which is about normal, for a high end lip product. I must admit my all time favourite is still Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 48 Evasion!... but for this seasons pastel trend, YSL have some really great Pink shades.


I also purchased myself some perfume, I almost purchased Prada Candy... but it was very heavy. It smelt fab, but I am very sensitive with perfume, and I just felt it was a little heavy. I ended up purchasing CK ONE SHOCK £35.00

( Vanilla,Chocolate,Fruit,Blackberry ) - This is a sweet summery perfume, which is a little lighter than Prada Candy!.


Holiday Pics!

Hey Everyone,
It has been so hard to blog lately, I have had so many assignments and work to do. I also just got back from a lovely holiday, I'm really sorry to my lovely friends I haven't replied to yet!. I hope you enjoy this post, and I would love to hear off some of you!.
