If there’s one thing everyone looks forward to during the monsoon, it’s all the awesome sales! Who doesn’t love a great deal on something that’s been on your wishlist since forever, and coming home with lots of shopping bags to unpack?
As we wind down towards the end of the year, the moments that truly stand out for us are in the little things. That random afternoon when you skipped an event to watch your favourite movie for the 97868969th time with your best friend. Or that time when you didn’t give a damn about catching a cold and danced in the rain anyway. When you sank your teeth into a gooey chocolate brownie at the end of a particularly shitty day, or the way you saw your S/O’s eyes light up at the sight of you.
Au Bon Pain has been a place that holds a lot of comfort for me. When I used to live in Koramangala, my brother and I would often go there for a quick coffee or some delicious bagels on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Their soups are also warm and comforting and worth a try. Recently, I was invited to experience their new ‘Winter Hotties’ menu. Read on to know what’s worth a try and what to miss from the menu!
You know that feeling of dread when you’re shampooing your hair and you notice half your hair floating away on the ground towards the drain? Or when you’re combing or brushing your hair and you see it all on the comb or brush? Hair fall is one of the most annoying yet most common haircare concerns most of us have. There’s a lot of different factors responsible for this, from pollution, to growing impurities in the water we use to take a shower, to bad diets and more. But one of the most common causes is also the shampoo you use. Using the same shampoo and conditioner consistently is important and you should use a shampoo especially formulated for hair fall rescue. Here I’m going to give you some basic haircare tips to reduce hair fall* and will also recommend a new product you can try.
So it’s time for a party, and you’re busy doing your makeup in front of the mirror. You’re getting ready to apply your foundation, when, horror of horrors! You notice your skin peeling off ever so lightly, but enough so it’s going to be noticeable. It’s peeling off your nose, off your forehead and sometimes in light flakes off your cheek. Dry skin can be really a nightmare to deal with. When it’s winter that’s when all hell seems to break loose on your skin. That tight, dry feeling is something that no amount of cream seems to help. If this sounds familiar, read on.
Remember those pre-Facebook & pre-Instagram days when we had Hi5, Orkut and MySpace? I’m sure all of you have that one photo of yourself in front of the mirror with your pocket digicam. The earliest selfies were way back then because phones didn’t have the kickass cameras they do now. Now, it’s like a ritual. Wearing a new outfit (and don’t have anyone to take your photo)? Take a selfie. Visited some amazing destination? Take a selfie. Tried a new makeup look? Selfie of course. I personally prefer taking selfies when I want to show you guys a new look or detail from my outfit. Here’s some of the things I keep in mind when I’m taking a selfie so that it comes out looking fab! Read more
Sometimes you just need to take some time off and get away from it all. Amidst the sea of traffic you see in front of you on your daily commute, or the pile of emails in your inbox, or the general cacophony around you, it can be hard to tap into your inner calm. It’s always a good idea to plan a getaway when life gets too overwhelming, or even in general if you’re bored. Here’s a look at the Signature Club Resort, Devanahalli by the Brigade Group as an amazing option as your go-to getaway! Read on for the full details.
The end of summer is approaching, and here in Bangalore it means that the trees look lovelier than usual, with their foliage and flowers making for a beautiful picture wherever you go. It’s the season for colour, and given my general leaning towards fun, bright colours it was of course bound to happen that I’d come up with a new outfit of the day that focused on bright tangerine!
Just over ten to fifteen years ago, it was commonplace for parents and for us to think about jobs in terms of three major factors – salary, job security and the name of the company. Landing a government job was considered the best possible thing and jobs were just that – jobs, that’d keep the home fires burning. Women working wasn’t as common as it is now.
Imagine if you were able to have perfect nails, all year long. If you could just slap on new colours and experiment with tons of textures, and even try nail art without spending too much time or effort. If you could take it off as easily as you put it on.
If you love nailpolish as much as I do, you’d know that the struggle is real. We all know that the right way to apply nailpolish is to first put on a layer of transparent base coat, wait for it to dry, then add your favourite colour layered on top, wait for that to dry and then finally add a top coat.
