This post will be my first ever ‘not worth the hype‘ kind of post. I always prefer writing about things I love to do, to…

What I’m Lovin’ – Bath, Body & Beauty

In an insta post, I wrote — I’ve always starved for connection, not attention. And, as much as that’s true, every girl has her attention seeking moments. She loves to dress up — but what she loves more, is that moment when the world notices it. It makes her feel beautiful. I know that we must never depend…

Current Favourites – Beauty

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.

Why Mehr is my spirit animal

I’ll start with a disclaimer: this is not so much of a review of the much-loved M.A.C Mehr, as it is my story of investing in the first ever M.A.C bullet I owned. I belong to a simple, south-Indian family with humble beginnings, a family that believes in good education and a rooted value system….
