The Wrap Up




I've been conscious about this being the fifth and last year of my college life for a while now.

What comes after the absolute end? I always wondered. And wondered and wondered. I expected to shed a few tears. Three months ago, I didn't realize how close to the end I was. Maybe when I have one month to go it'll hit me, I thought. One month to go and it still didn't hit me. Maybe when I have one week to go it'll hit me. One week to go and still nothing. Maybe on my absolute last day it'll hit me. My last day went by like a breeze.

Dry Skin Saviours


 The seasons are changing. Winter is gone for good. Summer is almost here (or spring, should we call it?). And the air has this uncanny dryness to it, which is so uncharacteristic of Mumbai weather. I like to call it the dry calm before the humid storm.  My skin has been getting oddly dry for March. Sometimes even drier than it got during December or January. 
Here are the products I use to salvage the situation.

My Everyday Makeup




I'm one of those people who are always very affected by the weather. The heat, the cold, the humidity -I am extremely conscious about these things and they affect my moods and behavior greatly. This isn't always ideal because I hate hot humid climates, it's hot and humid where I live, which is why the chances of me being in a perpetual bad mood are very high. 
 To counter this, I like to get myself excited for the change in seasons. Even though I'm not looking forward to the blazing summers, I'm looking forward to bright nail polish and tank tops and shorts and sunglasses. It may sound idiotic, but I have learned that it actually works. Similarly, I switch my makeup up every now and again based on what works best with the air around me. This is currently what I've been wearing.

The Best Kind of Glitter: Sparkly Nails




 I do enjoy my fair share of glitter. Funnily though, as much as I enjoy the sight of it, now that I think about it, I don't end up buying anything too glittery. Glittery nails, too, are something I like the idea of, but don't find myself wearing all too often. Until I discovered this particular combo. Burgundy. With gold glitter.
 It felt like love. And I think it was.

The Year I Was Waiting For



 Hello there. It's been a while. And although one look at my blog may make it seem like I spent the past month and half laying in bed, too lazy to open my laptop and write something in here, that is only partially true. I have actually been up to a lot of different things. But I also took a break from blogging, and not just out of sheer laziness, but because I had some thinking to do.

Online Shopping at Jabong.com: A Review


 Pretty much everyone I know are into online shopping, it's not even new anymore. But for some reason, I've not been big on buying stuff online (except for books). I don't know what it is. Maybe it's because I always feared stuff would reach me in a bad condition, or they wouldn't fit, or something. But I shopped from Jabong.com recently and I actually quite enjoyed the process! Here are my thoughts-

Dress For The Season: Fall '14 Outfit Ideas




 Despite the fact that it's still hot out here in Mumbai, I can definitely feel the air getting dry and the evenings getting just that tad bit cooler. You know what that means? Winters are close. In anticipation of our upcoming winters, here's a bunch of outfit ideas.
 Let's start with admitting that many of us live in places that don't actually have seasons. Mumbai, for instance. We don't have an autumn. We barely have a winter, although I like to believe we do (we do!). But for the sake of this post, let's call this season fall, all right? I believe in enjoying trends of every season, no matter what. Also, I don't believe you need giant coats and heavy knitwear to classify your outfit as fall/winter appropriate. The world is a flexible place. Let's tailor fall clothing to whatever temperature we are bestowed with, yeah?
