Burt’s Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream Review

Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream Review

Hand cream is something you’ll always find in my bag. It’s super essential when you’re on the go to keep your hands soft, moisturized and always feeling pretty. Firm handshakes and no stretchy, dry feeling helps too. Anyway, I recently was introduced to Burt’s Bees, at Sephora where I picked up their lip balm (review on that too soon) – they’re a company specializing in products made from beeswax and other natural ingredients.

Who doesn’t love fragrances? Fragrances are the easiest way to freshen up whenever you need to go out, or in the middle of a work day when you’re feeling a bit too meh and need a pick-me-up.

Happy Diwali!

happy-diwali

It’s that time of the year, when the whole city’s lit up with so many scintillating lights, when the place echoes with warm wishes and fireworks alike, your kitchen counter’s exploding with sweet boxes and when being with the people you love makes the celebration as special as it is. Diwali is a time for both celebration and reflection – while we all celebrate the festival of lights, let’s also be conscious about how our choices affect those around us – for instance, skipping the giant trail of bombs this season and going for a sparkler instead will make your colony safer for animals and humans alike. Let’s reflect on the year past and think of ways to make the coming days even more awesome than the ones before. Amidst the delicious sweets, dazzling lights and the lively conversations, let’s say a silent thanks for everything we’ve been given, and work towards an even more amazing year ahead.

So on that positive note, Happy Diwali! I hope you guys dress up in your ethnic best, gorge on lots of yummy delicacies, have a wonderful time with your closest friends and family and have an awesome rest of the year!

For A Legendary Punjabi Meal, Try Made In Punjab

Ever since I was little, I’ve preferred North Indian food due to my upbringing in the national capital region.

So when I was invited to the launch Made in Punjab, the latest venture from the renowned Zorawar Kalra, I was definitely interested in experiencing how Punjabi cuisine would be reimagined. Here’s what my experience tasting from the menu was like.
