Wise She Friends Meet And Beauty Center Haul


Hi Girls,


Some of the best times in our lives are stumbled upon quite by accident or are completed unplanned. So is the same about my my trip to Mumbai which happened quite by accident. On Wednesday at work, I was asked out of the blue to travel to Mumbai the very next day for 2 days (2nd & 3rd Feb). I was stumped but once my tubelight switched on and I realized I could use this opportunity meet up with blog pals, I let out a mental  ‘Whoopie!’. I am usually always in touch with Kejal (Kej to me) from Nailartandthings through Blackberry Messenger so I immediately pinged her and told her about it. Without even the slightest suggestion she was like ‘What’s your schedule? Lets meet up.’ Let me tell you guys, it felt SOOO good to see that message. Felt awesome!


The next day during travel I remembered that Jyoti (Jyo) from Thingsthatmatter2me also stayed at Mumbai and dropped her a mail on my way. She too replied within the hour and was game to meeting up. Could I BE any happier???? (Chandler style) Since I was a newbie to Mumbai, I looped n Kej and we chalked out our plan to meet up on Friday. Now some may ponder about where about in such a huge city would we plan to meet?? Any guesses??? It was NEW BEAUTY CENTER at Khar!! I’d heard so much about it from Tanveer, Rashmi and everyone else so it was the natural destination to meet up don’t you think? 😉 And since Jyo was also new to the area, Kej played guide for us 🙂 Total fun I tell you..


Since Kej stays in the same vicinity where I was put up, we went together and Jyo  met us there. Let me tell you girls, it was the most amazing feeling meeting them both.  The minute I met Kej, we shared a huge-wala hug and started gabbing away to glory even all thru the cab ride to the store. Same’s the case with Jyo. She’s sooo cute! She walked in and walked straight towards us and gave us a huge chirpy ‘Hi!’. I was stunned that she recognized us amongst all the other shoppers there but really happy too. And ofcourse her next question was, ‘Zara, blush liya??’ Haha!!! Not for a minute did it feel like I was meeting strangers…I know it’s a common dialogue but conversation was just so fluid!


Here’s a pic of the here of the 3 of us… From the left, that’s me, Jyo and Kej…

The minute I stepped into New Beauty Center (NBC), I was stumped! SO many goodies in one place…I was awestruck..Not that it stopped me from making 3/4th of my purchases from the first 4 counters J  I was so overwhelmed that I had to call up A and screech out my excitement…I’m sure it must have been so apparent from my tone.  After speaking with both Jo and Kej, I’m sure that even she must have felt like hopping on a jet and flying straight to NBC 😉

After NBC, Kej took us to Alfa..And Boy! I’ve never seen so many goodies on a single lane! I am super proud of Jyo because she had sooo much restraint while shopping…I wish I had her restraint girls…Kej picked up entire Colobar ka counter I think…She picked up goodies for herself as well as for friends and family.


When you’re with Kejal, its kinda obvious that I’m gonna gravitate towards the nail polishes…Here are the NPs I got after consulting with the expert..I got some Miss Claire NPs (the normal ones & crackle) and some OPIs, a Jordana top coat and Colorbar Pro as well.

Amazing aren’t they? NBC were selling OPIs for 375 bucks after discount so I simply couldn’t resist!


And ofcourse, how can a blush lover like me pass on the blushes? I got blushes from some local brands to try out. And Jyo got me the Revlon blush..Oh Gosh! She was so persistent!! Thanx a ton Jyo I’m loving it already!

Here are some miscellaneous stuff I got including some yogurt based face masks, a Colorbar liner in Glowing Sapphire and a lip color n pencil form…

And here are some goodies for my cutie-pie A… It includes a Max Factor Elixir lippy in Rosewood, a Colorbar blush in Peachy Rose,  and an eyeliner in Moonlight Blue along with some masks and NPs from MissClaire and OPI J Hope you enjoy them once you get them…

After our shopping expedition, Kej had to leave to go to work…She’d switched her shift so she could come met us, ain’t that super sweet? We were hoping Tanveer would join us for lunch, but since it was a weekday, it was hard for her to come off in the middle. I hope we can meet some time  Tans.. So Jyo and I proceeded to Papillon for lunch and gorged on some Crispy Paneer and American chopsuey and then washed it down with lime soda and Vanilla milkshake (yes, I gulped down the Vanilla Milkshake).


Here’s a pic of us post hogging 😉

After a bit more browsing, we decided to call it a day and returned to our respective home and city..All in all, this was an amazing meet! I wish we could do this more often and hope I get to visit more often..More than the shopping, I enjoying speaking with both of you face to face and found out a lot more about each of…and there’s so much to luv about you guys..Now its your turn to visit Pune..What say? 😉
