Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Whitewashing Women!





 

Whitewashing of Women in Advertisements


Guest Post By: Priyanka

Ever looked at that fairness cream advertisement on the front page of your newspaper and wondered who the hell the Caucasian looking woman is? From previous experience, I can say that it would be some Indian woman along the lines of Deepika Padukone, Asin or even Priyanka Chopra!

REVIEW: The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain in Rose Pink





 

 

Review of The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain in Rose Pink


I am an extremely lazy person... A lazy person with spurts of hyperactive energy here and there... So one day you will see all decked up with all the makeup I can manage, while on other days all I'll have would be a measly kajal and some lip gloss... Though in these cases I would have loved to have a teeny of blush as well but then my laziness generally takes over and I skip it altogether...

I Am Beautiful - A Realization - My #KhoobsuratMoment





 

I Am Beautiful - A Realization - My #KhoobsuratMoment


There are days when I am down in the dumps and nothing can cheer me up. Those are the days when I hate everything about me, I feel fat, I find my skin dull and most of all hate my hair, more so because it is between rebonding sessions and it is half straight and half curly...

What’s in your beach bag?





Beach-Bag-Must-Haves

 

What’s in your beach bag?


    Right now, somewhere in the Hamptons a New York fashion photographer is taking pictures of some gorgeous bikini model, walking on the beach. Right now, somewhere in Mauritius a girl is looking through her giant beach bag, trying to find the sunscreen. It must a tough job, because we’ve all been there.
