What I learnt from Angelina Jolie...

It has always been my utmost priority on my blog to highlight people who inspire me both in fashion and as heroes. As people who you see and just admire. She is the epitome of beauty and married to the hottest star today. But she wasnt always known for the perfect wife and mother that she is today. Scandals where always surrounding Angelina. But here are the reasons why I admire her. 

A true hero is someone who has faced adversities and made their life better. Thats exactly what Angelina has done, she has taken on serious world issues and visited those remote countries and war zones where no one goes. Spoken for human rights so many times and made movies that make you think. She has also done a fab job of raising 6 children and doing it battling cancer like a true survivor of it and still manage to maintain grace and elegance about it. 

Here are the reasons I admire Angelina Jolie

1) From Scandals to Humanitarian
She was known for marrying an elderly Billy Thornton, to kissing her brother on the red carpet to admitting to be dating women but from all those stories she has transformed her life into always been in the headlines for the wrong reasons to making a difference in the world. Going to war zones and coming back to USA and making the leaders of the world hear her insights because she actually visited those places and not just doing it for political reasons.

2) Loving Mother
Now you would say 'Just adopting kids and being rich is enough'- Not true. Lot of people can do that but not celebrities who are named the most beautiful in the world and yet she chooses to spend her time with her children and give up her career and take up serious causes. I hate ppl like Chelsea Handler who bad mouthed Angelina so much and obviously coz shes Jennifer anistons friend. Oh come on! Why jolie why not look at the fact. Brad pitt left her. Anyways, this is debatable topic, I just dont like ppl going around talk ill about people .It doesnt make Jolie look bad, it made Chelsea look bad. Thats all.

3) Her struggles with cancer and being open about it. It takes guts and determination to fight an illness and remove your ovaries to make sure that you can live a long life and in doing so she has educated women and given some strength to those who might be suffering similar battles in their life. 

4) Her poise and grace in handling controversies. I have never seen angelina speak ill or say anything bad about anyone. Her interviews are always about people or events relating to her work and thats the way it should be.

5) Shes the most beautiful women, yet she never seems to have the attitude or throw any weight around.

These just might be a few points but they do make Angelina what she is today! And this post is dedicated to the substance that she is. Angelina, you are the most amazing women and let me say that you have forever changed the way I look at the world. You have taught me that if adversities are faced or if have gone through a rough patch in your life and people are judging you stay focused on what you want to achieve and you will always get it.

Burberry cream and Dior face mask review

Recently, I was looking for a new face cream. Now, my skin is very sensitive and gets oily easily. So, I needed a face cream which is light yet doesnt add to the oil problem. I came across the new Burberry fragrances cream and heard some great reviews about it. It tempted  me enough to splurge on buying it and trying it out for my face. I must say I havent been happier and it smells amazing too. I had a very routine cream that I was using till now from Clinique to Lakme. But Burberry is definitely become one of my favorite beauty product from their lipsticks Ive picked up recently to perfumes which I have featured earlier on the blog and now their skincare range. So here are my skin results. Ive also made video with all shots of products have a look.

The Dior face mask was a testing one for me. I always have preferred face mask and scrubs for my skin as they help with blackheads and cleaning. I dont use foundation or heavy makeup much coz I feel it spoils the skin so on very rare occasions do I emphasize on using it on my skin. This face mask in particular was great on my skin...What are your fav beauty products?

What does Style Vs Designer mean?

There has been an age old debate that you dont always need the biggest and best brands to look stylish. I totally agree with that. You could just own an ordinary pair of jeans and sweatshirt and still make it look stylish. I remember seeing Tom cruise in this plain white shirt and jeans and it became the rage in 90's the most sought after look. The look itself was so popular not because we knew which brand shirt he wore, it was more about the appeal and the look overall.

So my thoughts about style has always been dont get hung up on the designer label. Its not that theres anything wrong with that. But if you do make that a focus then the look and style itself is gone and you are obsessed just with the brand and need to show to people that you have style because of it. Make sure to have your own style statement first though. Its ironic I am saying this and feature some of the best brands on my blog. I do appreciate them, but all I mean is dont let it take over you.
