It has been a year, yes! ONE YEAR since I started my blog, ‘My Obsessions’. Continue reading

Breast Cancer Awareness month (and your previous participation)
Couple of months ago I had posted a topic on participating for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research, where I had requested family and friends to support me with my cause (click here full details). Today, being the 1st of October, a month dedicated towards Breast Cancer Awareness, I take the opportunity to thank everyone who took time to email or message me their pictures in pink to support my cause. This has meant a lot to me. As promised, I did donate the contributions to UK Cancer Research on the 19th of May, the day I lost my beloved Mother to this horrible illness.
Let us take a moment to remember and pray for all the brave people, their families and loved ones who are or have battled this illness together.
Pretty little heart(s)
I am a HUGE fan of prints, any print! And, when I spotted this heart print shirt from Burberry, I was drooling all over it! But seriously would I pay a fortune (£500!) just for ‘heart print shirt’ even though it is one of the cutest prints?! No way!! Lucky me! I found something similar in Select for a fraction of the price! 😀 Talk about thrift shopping!! 😉 Anyway, I wore my heart(s) my sleeve yesterday for a lovely afternoon tea with my girls. 😀
Here’s me wearing…
Find me on Instagram!
So I am on Instagram too! You may follow me on @kavbasavraj for more everyday randomness. Have a great day folks. 😀
Rainbow eyes (step-by-step)
It is not very often that I over-do my eyes. However, today I wanted to test my eye-makeup skills by trying out the ‘rainbow eyeshadow’. It has been such a grey and gloomy day and playing with colours has definitely made me a happy bunny! 😀
Here’s what I did step-by-step…… Continue reading
Print & braid
Prints are fun to pep up any plain outfit and, any print can be worn dressed up or down! So here’s my leopard print OOTD.

You guys must have guessed by now how much I love anything ‘retro’. So I decided to try some retro nails on me. 😀
Quick fix 6
Today I realised that it has been quite a while since I have posted any of my ‘quick fix’ recipes. It just hasn’t occurred to me to take pictures and do a post. Well anyway, here’s me today presenting to you with my yummy ‘Jacket/baked potato with beans and salad’. Mmmmm… 😛 This is very basic and probably the easiest to make. For this you will need…
Autumn has begun….
Autumn is setting in or, has it already begun? Blazers and jackets feel so apt for the weather right now however, I suppose I might soon need to bring out my winter coats and boots! 😉 Anyway, here’s something I wore couple of days ago….
Having a go at Vintage / Retro / Pinup look. Who doesn’t like dress-ups anyway! 😉 Here’s the link to achieve similar hair and make-up. 🙂
Summer rain (nails)
It’s been raining (thank goodness, it’s not pouring and some sunny spells!) and, here’s me getting a little productive and a little creative with my nails today. 😉 Got my inspiration from the weather and, someone who has already got their nails done! Don’t call me a copycat now! 😛
Back to the 90’s
Pinafore dresses definitely reminds me of my childhood days. But hey! Don’t we all have that little child in us?! 😉 Loving the ‘overalls’ trend now. 😀

Disney inspired (?!)
Figured that I haven’t done an OOTD post for a very long time! Summer has been amazing in London so far and here’s me making the most of this lovely warm weather. This outfit I wore yday for me is very Minni mouse inspired (is that even age appropriate?! 😀 ) probably because of the polka dots, red and the attempted (but miserably failed!) ‘bow up-do’ :P. Anyway,……….
…..here’s me wearing….
❤ BB cream
I have been asked about my (flawless?!) skin off late and some of you have also messaged me asking how I have archived this ‘glow’. Well, first of all thank you so much. I am glad to know what I’ve been using has been working! (Hurray!!) :D. Truth to be told (and I am attaching a photo proof), just to show ‘how-so-not-flawless’ my skin actually is! 😦 😛
Every season I seem to favour a particular colour. Although bright colours are what I usually opt for, I seem to have taken the other route this season. Errmmm.. I am talking about lipsticks here. 😉 Shades of red, pinks and neutrals have always been my favourite. However, this season the ‘Coral’ shade has really grown on me. 🙂
I have been on a quest (well, apart from the other things I obsess after!) this summer. I have been looking for the perfect coral coloured lipstick. Although a couple were already owned, I somehow wanted to get that ‘perfect shade’. So I picked up a couple more to add to my collection. 😛
Chocolate cake for my hubby darling
Hello everybody! I am back to those of you who have missed me! 😀 Yes! I am still alive! lol. Ok so it has been a crazy long time since I have done a post. This summer has been a little busy but I am glad to be posting after what feels like years!! A lot has happened over the past few months and it does feel like there’s a lot to catch up on. But nonetheless, I shall start off with something sweet and something very recent.
So it was my lovely husband’s birthday a couple of days ago. I am not the kind who favours cooking/baking but when it comes to indulging, count me in! 😉 Continue reading
The much awaited and anticipated ‘Fast & furious 6’ is finally here!! 😀 So like all fast fans, we couldn’t wait to watch this action packed movie. This movie definitely did not let my expectations down. Thumbs up from me. Movie followed by dinner date. 😀
I am wearing…
Khaki + Camo
My OOTD post after what feels like ages. Keeping it very casual and, of course WARM! 😉

Another hair day!
Hello everybody! It has been about 10 days now since I last posted and, I have missed my blog so much! I’ve been having some crazy days! Feels like I’m on the roller coaster. Lol. 😀 I was feeling so drab in the past week. My hair was a total mess, out grown and out of shape. The last time I styled my hair was sometime in November. Yikes! I know that’s way too long ago. It was time to change and get something interesting done. 😉
So this was it...
Prints and pink
Was I the only one who was cold today? It’s crazy how the temperature keeps fluctuating every now then. Any how, looking on the brighter side, it is at least going to be summer soon and not winter again. This is me in prints and pink, back to my cardigan and scarf wrapped all warm. 😀
