It’s funny how we see love, shown to us in books, in the media, all our lives…There’s always this expectation of what it’s supposed to be. You know, the ‘happily ever after’ trope and the way everything is so neatly packaged up with a bow on top. The meeting. The bonding. The conflict. The separation. The resolution, then the happy ending. There’s always a sense of completion to these portrayals. We only see the good stuff, just like we do on social media, when really, it’s the messiness, the disarray, the deliciously incomplete yet complete aspects that make a relationship last.
Last Valentine’s, I spoke about loving yourself, and this year I’m going to talk about something different.
The end of 2017 was incredible for me in two ways – one, my decision to go full time, and two, the surprise that arrived in my inbox saying I’d be traveling to Bhutan for Christmas and New Year on a road trip with Mahindra Adventure. Bhutan, the Land of Happiness, has been on my mind for a while now to visit, after my mom told me about how beautiful it is. So after jumping on my bed for a good five minutes in sheer excitement, I started packing and made the announcement on my Insta stories. Well now that I’ve been back for a while and got all the pics and everything edited, read on to know all about my experience!
Hi loves! Lately I’ve been discovering a lot of new and upcoming natural beauty brands that emphasize on natural ingredients and cruelty-free manufacturing. How many times have we turned to our moms and grandmoms for some quick fixes from the kitchen when that unexpected zit randomly appears just before a much-anticipated date. Or when there aren’t any face packs or masks at home and you just have to pamper yourself.
When it comes to makeup, MAC Cosmetics has a cult following. Once you’ve tried their products there’s no going back! They’re trusted by the best makeup artists with a collection of amazing products in every category. My MAC obsession began when I bought my first MAC lipstick, Relentlessly Red. And since then I’ve been hooked! If you’re thinking of what to start with, here are my top picks of the must-have products from MAC Cosmetics!
As a person who doesn’t like to spend a lot of time at the salon, facials are a gift I give to myself from time to time when I really want to chill and be pampered as much as possible. And whenever I go for a facial or any luxury beauty treatment for that matter, I like experimenting. So when I heard that Bodycraft salon had a new luxury caviar facial on the menu, I knew I had to try it. Read on to know what my experience was!
Hi loves! How has the new year been treating you? I’m back from my trip and gradually getting used to being my own boss for now with the blog! There’s scheduling, planning and brainstorming and it’s been a busy couple of days! I have been trying to figure out how to add more to my haircare regimen lately. Recently, I got to experience a whole new, all-natural haircare range from Himalaya that focuses on preventing hairfall. Read on to know what I thought of the treatment!
Happy New Year, you guys! I’m sorry for being MIA for the last two or three weeks but that’s only because I’ve been dealing with some big changes. 2017 held all kinds of amazing moments for me, but it has also had its share of stress, and health issues which made me take short breaks quite a lot.

While winter is a lovely time to bask in the sun, it was even lovelier to warm up to the latest OBEETEE luxury carpets Collection specially crafted by ace designers Abraham & Thakore at The Lodhi in Delhi. The ‘Proud to be Indian’ collection is specially handcrafted for the discerning customer who loves modern sensibilities and timeless Indian artistry.
December always holds a special place for me, and I always miss home around this time. In Delhi, every shop, house and building is lit up with fairylights. There’s a chill in the air, and I don’t mean the 25 degrees people here consider as cold – it’s actually 13 and below. Time to bring out all those gorgeous coats and jackets and boots. When hot chocolate or a glass of wine pair perfectly with the weather outside. When your cat loves to snuggle or curl up at your feet as you watch a great movie.
It’s the season to celebrate, indulge and shop till you drop! While I’m usually a total online shopper, I still occasionally love going to malls at this time of the year. It’s mostly to check out the gorgeous decor, the offers in store and all the delicious food! Recently, 1 MG Lido Mall which is known for having some of the best brands in the country, from H&M to Aldo, had an amazing fashion show. It was the 4th edition of the ‘Beautiful One’ Fashion Show that they host every year. Read on to know more about all the highlights from the show!
