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 […]Read More Current Favourites – Beauty
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. Until a couple of years ago, lipsticks meant ‘adding colour to your lips‘ and not the ‘my lips but better‘ rage that is possibly the most everlasting […]Read More Favourite Nude Lipsticks
Gone are the days when makeup meant some Nivea cream, some Ponds powder and a Lakme lipstick. Today, we have an overwhelming number of brands, products and techniques, and with it comes the strange, confusing, drag community terminology!

Some have become available for purchase in India only recently, but others have been around forever. I never tend to talk about these because I assume that these […]Read More All time loves – bath, body & hair
What this post is about – knowing how and where to start if you are a beauty virgin and want to understand what to buy, what to do with it and how to make the most of it. I often get a lot of questions from beauty novices asking me to recommend what to buy, […]Read More Outrageous beauty for beginners
I’m a big sucker for yearly favourites on You Tube, and feel inspired to do something similar on my space, here. However, a full year of favourites maybe a bit too much information to spill all at once (and monthly is way too often), so I’m dividing this series into four quarters. Also, I can’t […]Read More 2018 Favourites – Quarter One
Review: The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Sebum Control Hydrating Sun Cream. Gosh, that’s a long one to remember! If there was one piece of advice I would give my younger self it would be this – don’t be reckless, always wear sunscreen. I have extremely sensitive skin prone to redness, allergies and severe tanning […]Read More Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen. Check.
What this post is about: Packing a goof-proof and basic beauty, skin care and hair care kit for a vacation. I hope you are sitting there and saying ‘You had me at vacation.’ Holiday season is fast approaching and it’s imperative that we start getting into vacay mood, revamping our wardrobes and getting sun ready.
