I’ve got a Dream

‘Way down deep inside, I’ve got a dream‘ — sings Rapunzel (in Tangled) with all the thugs, ruffians and thieves who seem to go all warm and fuzzy when she asks them in all her spirited innocence — ‘Don’t any of you have a dream?!‘ Some of us grow up knowing exactly what we want to do […]

Wake up, baby

“It’s not as if our lives are divided simply into light and dark. There’s shadowy middle ground. Recognizing and understanding the shadows is what a healthy intelligence does.

Current Favourites – Beauty

It’s been a while since I did a round-up of my current beauty favourites from the drugstore world, something I always plan to do but never get around to it because I feel like such posts are boring to write and boring to read. At the same time, I want you to know what’s keeping […]

Favourite Nude Lipsticks

No girl can ever have enough nude lipsticks. Ever. I was never the one to wear nude lipsticks because they weren’t really a trend in India until recently.
