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!
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated by glasses and eyewear frames. My whole family wore them, except me and though I didn’t want the issues associated with it, I’d always try on my parent’s or brother’s glasses to see and imagine how I’d look if I had them. Back in the 90s when I grew up, frames and lenses were pretty limited. But recently, with the emergence of geek chic and non-prescription eye glasses, my fascination is back. For those of you who do wear glasses though, I’ve put together a few of my favourite frames from Specsmakers and styled them for you! Take a look 🙂
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!
