Phuntsholing – Bhutan

Arpita's Travelogue

Phuntsholing is the first town you come across as you cross into Bhutan from Jaigaon, India. Since Bhutan & India have friendly relations you won’t find a heavily guarded border like you usually come across when it comes to International Borders. The only thing that separates the two countries is a beautiful Gate, you cross it & voila you reach Bhutan!

Bhutan Gate Bhutan Gate

India supplies almost everything that Bhutan does not produce itself. So Phuntsholing is a gateway for all the trade that takes place between the two countries.

Most foreigners choose to fly into Bhutan via Delhi, India to Paro ( the only airport in Bhutan) so don’t really get to visit Phuntsholing. However most Indians choose the road route, which is what we had to do since we did not get the flight tickets ! Remember to book your flight tickets way in advance as the seats are…

e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Blush (Sweet Retreat) Review + Swatches

Online Beauty Finds

e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Blush

Hi everyone!

This shade is the perfect everyday blush for lighter skin tones, it goes with any makeup look. This is great for those who do not like or use blush since it is very soft looking on the cheeks. This review is on the shade “Sweet Retreat”.

I like the packaging because it is sleek and light; perfect for travel. It also has a see-through lid; this makes it easy to find the shade you need.

Sweet Retreat has a matte finish with the slightest sheen; almost a satin finish. This shade is a light pink/peach and even though the blush itself is pigmented, the color is light.

This blush feels very buttery and the formula is comparable to a much higher brand. It blends very easily on the cheeks and lasts for about 3-4 hours before fading. Overall, I recommend this for an everyday blush for lighter skin tones.

Have you…

e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Blush (Jet Setter) Review + Swatches

Online Beauty Finds

e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Blush Jet Setter

Hi again,

This is a beautiful shade for fall, it is a mauve-y dusty rose that is my go-shade during autumn. It goes with most makeup looks involving deeper plum/purple tones and because the color can be built up, it suits most light-medium skin tones. This review is on the shade “Jet Setter”.

I have done a review on the shade “Sweet Retreat”, which is a great everyday blush. I found the formula to be consistent with these as they are both very buttery and blendable. They last about 4 hours before slowly fading away.

The packaging is travel-friendly; it is light and sleek and it also has a see-through lid which makes it easier to find the shade you are looking for.

KAYU’s Birth

The Raven's Nest

Here we are

Another crossroads I seems to pile without control. One fork here another there and no straight line ahead…Nothing straight indeed.

But I stumble upon a KAYU (Timber in Indonesian) but it sounds like the French word caillou (pebble).

KAYU is a breathtaking furniture store deeply link to nature and its preservation. Kayu is also a art gallery and it will be open in few days, Dec 10th 2014 in Alexandria NSW.

As a local designer or  just in need of the perfect addition to your home, go to the link to see their stock. And if you are a local artist, inquire about exhibiting with KAYU, they have over 480 sqm of space allocated for photographers, or other industrial inspired artists.

In the twists and curves on my path I am proud of helping to open KAYU to the Sydney market.
