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!
If there’s one thing you should do at least once, it’s to get an activated charcoal spa. An activated charcoal treatment is something that’s gained popularity over the past year. Activated charcoal as an ingredient has made its way into beauty products, spa treatments. In India, Serena Spa was one of the first to actually co-opt activated charcoal into its beauty treatments. I recently got introduced me to their recently opened spa at the Marriott, Whitefield. Read on to know my experience with the treatment!
My love for jewellery must be pretty obvious by now to you guys. I just love playing around with different colours, materials, textures and designs when it comes to jewellery. It has so many creative ways of bringing a touch of personality to whatever you wear. Today I’m going to be styling and showing you some of my favourite pieces from two gorgeous collections by Caratlane jewellery – the Jaipur collection and the Butterfly Collection.
I think 2017, for me, will go down as the year I rediscovered my latent love for travel. While it’s just a start and I have a long way to go before I cover my favourite places in this gorgeous country, and see my passport peppered with stamps, it has begun! Goa is one of those places that I had on my bucket list, but never got to visit due to so many reasons – friends cancelling plans, lack of enough leave, and a lot more. This year, I finally got to experience this paradise, and I know I will definitely be going back!

How have you been doing, loves? The weather in Bangalore is beautiful right now, transitioning into this city’s version of fall. That means lovely, cloudy skies and pleasant curl-up-in-your-blanket weather that makes you think of all the good things – hot cocoa, a great book, and boots.
There’s something just so luxurious about natural beauty products. I always get drawn in by natural ingredients because I always love being closer to nature and if my body butters can do that, I’m down! Hemp seed is an ingredient that’s gradually been gaining popularity for its amazing properties. It’s rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and this makes it an excellent moisturizer for dry skin and hair. It also improves skin oxygenation and hydration and improves skin elasticity over time. I had a chance to discover a lot more about the whole process of creating natural beauty products from hemp seed oil, with a brand called Satliva. Read on to know all about my favourite products from them.
