Weekly Ramblings: Round 14

Hello!
Well, the talk of the town at the moment is the launch of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in 5 colors, apart from the existing black one. Well, I love the black Eyeconic Kajal (on my third one now!!) so I had to get all 5 of these! Swatches and reviews coming soon! Meanwhile do let me know which one you would like me to review first!

Ghayathri and I went shopping today to pick some salwars and jewellery for her. She bought a lovely silk cotton salwar and a pair of jhumkas. I, on the other hand bought these really cute Ganesha earrings, the turquoise beads chain and a pair of silver studs. I’ve stopped wearing earrings since nothing seems to go with my haircut. These studs look perfect for everyday wear and they are silver. Love love love!! The earrings were 40 INR a pair and the chain was also 40 INR. The silver studs were 250 INR.

In my previous weekly ramblings post, I had written about 3 movies that were releasing on the weekend prior to Christmas. Well, I watched Dhoom 3 (Hindi) and Endrendrum Punnagai (Tamil). Loved Endrendrum Punnagai and hated Dhoom 3. Well, I preferred Dhoom 1 & 2 over Dhoom 3. I felt the script and screenplay were very shoddy and the dialogues were unbearable! Urrrghhhh!!

I’m excited about watching Walking With Dinosaurs in 3D tomorrow. Although the movie has been thrashed by critics, I’m excited to watch it.

I keep talking about games like Minion Rush and Subway Surfer, so I thought I’ll do a compilation of 4 games that follow the exact game format that is, running endlessly. The four games I love playing are Jet Pack Joy Ride, Minion Rush, Subway Surfer and Temple Run. Subway Surfer is addictive. That was the first one I played and then the rest followed. Which one is your favourite?

Weekly Ramblings for this year comes to an end! See ya next year! šŸ˜‰Ā

  • You have a very nice blog Deepika. Love reading your posts :)
    I am a little excited about the eyeconic Kajals. I haven’t tried them before. Going to check them out soon :)
    I just hope the white is good. Finding a white eye pencil is not easy here.

    • Thank you so much Sumathi and welcome to Divassence! <3 :)

      Do let me know if you like the eyeconic kajals. I’ve been hearing mixed reviews about them. šŸ˜€

      Seriously! White eye pencils are hard to find. Nude is harder!

  • I am excited to try the hiwte one from the Eyeconic.. the black one didnt impressed me much..:)
    the ganesha earings are prett.. :)

    • I guess most of us are excited about the white one! šŸ˜€
      :) thank you..

  • oh wow!! u bought them all??? the eyeconics i mean. I cant find these anywhere and i live in the capital of the country :'(

    • yes i did :) These were available in a local store here and ironically all the new launches and pieces of various collections are available there only!

  • Had a great time ya! We should go out more often šŸ˜€ Everyone at my home loved the jhumkas! My first silver jewellery (if u don’t count the tiny silver earrings I used to wear as a kid :-P)!! Just returned home after watching endrendrum punnagai, loved the movie šŸ˜€ Ordered eyeconic based on your reco, waiting for it to reach me :-)

    • we should! :) I want to do street shopping at tngar.. we should go šŸ˜€

      I was so worried if your grandmom would like the stuff you bought :)

      Let me know your opinion on the eyeconic :)

  • I’m mad about subway surfer, I bet with my anna and play madly!! Nice post dear ^_^

  • I can totally relate to you on the mobile phone game addiction. I haven’t tried Minion Rush, but I’m hooked on to the other three games. Temple Run is my go-to game, but it’s prone to glitches a lot and I lost all my progress (full upgrades, 140 gems, need I say more? :( ) TWICE and after that I rarely play it because it’s so annoying having to build up your progress again. Also, the “Antique” collection part is quite dumb, they are of no use at all.
    Subway Surfers is what I play mostly now, since they have those new City Tour thingies with new collections every month (it’s Mumbai now :D).
    Btw check out Nun Attack as well. I played the Run & Gun instalment of it, loved it! Only thing is, once you finish the objectives there’s not much left :(
