Origin: Indian (Sanskrit)
Meaning: skilful, wealth, cleaver.

What’s your ethnicity?
I’m full Indian, born & raised in England.

How do you colour/do your hair?
Up until 2012, I regularly got ‘flashes’/'flashes of colour’ put into the bottom half of my hair. I have had a selection of colours (from caramel to blonde) & have been doing this for over 5 years now & looks ‘ombre-d’. I tend to let my hair air dry with some Moroccan Oil & Bumble & Bumble bb.gel. I then style the front with my straighteners &/or curling wands depending on my mood. From 2013 onward, I have an align hair cut, you can read more about it HERE.

How do you do your eyebrows?
You can see how I do my eyebrows HERE.

What shade are you in MAC foundation?
MAC Face & Body - C3
MAC Foundations - NC30/35

What’s your favourite foundation?
I think my all time favourite foundation is the MAC Face & Body however recently I have discovered the YSL Touche Éclat Foundation (review HERE) & it’s become a firm favourite!

What Camera do you use?
At first I used a Canon IXUS 220 and 130. Since April 2011, I’ve used a Canon 500D with 18-55mm & 50mm lenses. I occasionally use my iPhone and/or Instagram images.

What program do you use to edit your pictures?
I do not ‘photoshop’ any of my pictures but I use Picasa to add a watermark to all of the pictures on my blog & occasionally post pictures from my Instagram (with their filters).

Do you have a YouTube channel?
Yes! I now also make YouTube videos. You can find my channel HERE.

    Hi there I discovered your blog recently and fell in love completely I was wondering how you made you banner I’m dying to know because I want to start a blog and also I was wondering if when you take photos of make up on you actual face you could do one with flash and one without :)

      Hi Nova, thanks do much for your message. I made my banner just with a random font on a program called Paint.NET which is like a free photoshop. I can try & do with & without flash photography of my face (sometimes England isn’t the best for that) but I will definitely try my best x
