Phew! that was a very lengthy and difficult list to create as its difficult to remember every single thing, but I hope you enjoyed knowing my hits and misses. Please do share yours, I'd love to know.

I linked all the products that I've reviewed to their posts. The ones I've not reviewed yet, I will do as soon as possible but if there's anything in particular that you want me to review, let me know. Sorry, I couldn't find any links to the clothing, and accessories I've mentioned coz I think none of them are available online. I don't usually shop online so its difficult to find matches. And also taking a picture of all the clothing and accessory items in one single frame is not possible so I just let it be.

C'ya all next month with more posts. I'm really excited coz I have some great posts coming up. And there's summer to look forward to.

Keep Smiling :)
