Tapping Into My Inner Prada... Excerpts from the Grace Hopper Conference to Celebrate Women in Computing



Tapping Into My Inner Prada... Excerpts from the Grace Hopper Conference to Celebrate Women in Computing

For those who follow me on Twitter, Facebook or/and Instagram would know that I was in Bangalore the past week attending the very exciting Grace Hopper Conference to celebrate Women in Computing and they opened it with one of the sessions being 'Tapping Into My Inner Prada'... Well needless to say this session drew a huge crowd and we were left with no place to sit :)

'Tapping Into My Inner Prada' was about how important or not important is to look a certain stereotype to be successful at work... Do our looks, attire, makeup and other outward appearances make a difference to how we are perceived at work... It was an interesting session and it was heartening to see women from all age groups come out and share their experiences...

There were fresh college graduates come out and relate stories about how theireso uber chic outfits gave an impression of 'irresponsible', 'airhead' and other such non-nerdy adjectives to their seniors... While on the other hand there were industry veterans and senior women employees who came up with scenarios where they passed over for promotions and onsite opportunities only because they were sarees and salwar suits and weren't "modern" enough...

This led me to think if we women should resort to "changing" our sense of style and fashion sensibilities according to our age... I mean probably dressing conservatively when younger and then going all western corporate style when a little senior... Again this brings us to how our attire is so important at work... One way or the other...

What do you think?

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
