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...

#KhoobsuratMoment - My First Karwachauth
Firsts are always special, aren't they? And first festivals after marriage are no different :) My today's post is about my first karwachauth after my wedding... It was special because it was for the first time I was going to be a part of this special ritual.

My #KhoobsuratMoment - The Special One

My #KhoobsuratMoment - The Special One
Nothing beats the warm, fuzzy feeling that you get when your special someone looks at you spellbound and speechless, isn't it? Well something like this happened to me the other day and it was like Love At First Sight all over again for us :)

What’s in your beach bag?

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.

My #KhoobsuratMoment Thanks to L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color
You know how things sometimes get all chaotic and stressful but you continue slogging counting the days till the whole thing passes. But it doesn't really and one fine morning you wake up exasperated and decide to give everything a rest and relax with a Hair Spa or a body massage or even a session of manicure and pedicure...

GIVEAWAY: Garnier Men Gives You A Chance to Win Goodies for The Man In Your Life

Men are special... Of course they don't really understand us and we cannot really fathom why they do the things that they do but we all have at least on Special Man in our lives... Be it our fathers, our brothers, boy friends, husbands or even our best friends... They make our lives special...

ISLM Travel Diaries: Bangalore to Pondicherry

A Road Trip from Bangalore to Pondicherry
Road Trips are special and if it is with your sister, then they take a whole new dimension altogether... My sister and I have made a pact that we shall be doing 1 trip every year, just the two of us... No parents, no in-laws, no husbands/boy friends and in the future, no children... This was our first ever trip of this sort and hence it was special... It was after all the Maiden Once-A-Year-Sisters-Only-Road-Trip and no doubt a hugely liberating experience...

For Men: Don't Be a Loser by Being a Bar User

For Men: Don't Be a Loser by Being a Bar User
I am sure that many of us have resorted to using a simple soap bar on our face on days we feel that we just want to tumble back into bed. This may be because we had a late night and are now nursing a hangover from hell and have a long day to endure, but please note that by being a loser and being a bar user you have now exposed your skin to the numerous ill effects of bar soaps.

A visit to The Four Fountains Spa in Gurgaon.
Guest Post By: Raunak
Hello my lovely girls……….a big bear hug to all of you.
Okay so I am very new to the concept of spas. Relaxation by massages, aroma and strokes…..all this is fairly new to me.
I was determined to experience what is all the fuss about.

LOTD: Makeup & Curls for Work

From the Archives: Makeup & Curls for Work
You know the whole furore about the new Airtel ad where the wife is the boss and then she gets back home to be this awesome Goddess in the kitchen and then lures her husband back from work and all that? The arguments ranged from "Awwwww, Airtel has nailed it" to "What was Airtel thinking having a senior manager at go home and still cook for her husband"... Well honestly, I have nothing to say about it cause well the ad is open for interpretation and everyone is welcome to their own opinions.

How to Get the Celebrity Look

How to Get the Celebrity Look
If Jennifer Lopez or Priyanka Chopra wear a certain style dress today and carry it off with élan, you can be sure it is going to be the rage tomorrow with girls and women searching frantically for something similar to give them the same pizzazz and hopefully make heads turn.

REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine 3D Gloss in Peach Shine

Review of  Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine 3D Gloss in Peach Shine
You know the biggest mistake that you can commit when trying to lose weight is, rewarding yourself. I weighed myself today morning to be 2 Kgs lighter than I was a week ago and to reward myself, the pati and I went out to Pizza Hut for lunch. Big Mistake! Huge Mistake! Humongous Mistake! The guilt I feel right now is immeasurable and I vow to not reward myself till I lose 5 more kilos...

My #KhoobsuratMoment in Flashback

My #KhoobsuratMoment in Flashback
I have been rebonding my hair since almost 6 years in a row now and hence I have always refrained from treating my hair with any other chemicals, especially hair colour. However, L'Oreal Paris hair colors are something that I have always given concession to because well they really seem to have some amazing technology behind them...

HAUL: Long Weekends at the Starting of the Month!

Long Weekend Shopping Haul from FabIndia, The Body Shop, MAC, Zara and Vero Moda
Long weekends are a boon but if they fall during the starting of the month then nothing can stop them from becoming a bane, for me at least!
We had a long weekend, this one, due to the beginning of Ganesh Utsav on Friday and well I just couldn't help myself from going all out and buying stuff that I didn't need... I do that often and end up with stuff that I really never need... But then again, that's the fun part of life now, isn't it? ;)
