My personal favourite amongst these are-

  • Alphonso Mango- With or without granola I am in love with this flavour since it was launched in the market, it used to be my snacking partner. It has a kick of flavour, so refreshing and fresh. One can feel the taste of fresh juicy mangoes. I eat one cup with granola for breakfast and love it, if you wish you can have two cups at a time depending upon your diet.

  • Cream n Onion- This is my most favourite yogurt, it is savoury, rich, delicious, creamy and with a pop of refreshing taste. It is so good that I wanted to have more and more of it. We can eat it mixed with barley puff as well as we can add the yogurt and barley puffs to chopped vegetables and make it a salad. This can be eaten as a meal. I added cucumber in barley puff and yogurt mixture and it tasted so refreshing and was quite filling.

  • Natural- It is thick natural yogurt which can be used as a base for sweet or savoury dishes. This is the only yogurt out of all the yogurts which I wasn’t able to eat alone. I added fruits in it and kept it in freezer for sometime and it tasted divine. It can be eaten when you crave desserts and sweets a fantastic replacement for desserts.

  • Strawberry- Strawberry flavours don’t usually attract me but this one is so natural that I couldn’t resist myself from eating it. It comes in a snack pack with granola as well which tastes great.

IMG_4308

  • Wild Raspberry- This is one flavour I am repurchasing again and again. I am in love with this flavour it has the kick of berry flavour along and has a perfect blend of sweetness in it. I usually eat it for my evening snacks mixed with cornflakes as cornflakes neutralizes the sweetness.

Things that must be kept in mind while consumption and storage are:

DSCN1041

  1. Always keep them refrigerated
  2. Make sure you finish before expiry date

Only concern for some people is their price as there are other yogurts available in the market for lesser price, but to me this isn’t a concern as the their quality is worth every penny spent. So go ahead people try these snacking options which are associated with health, taste and variety.

I would rate them 5/5 because there is nothing wrong with them!!

You can buy them online from here

How To Customize Your To-Go Palette 

We all love to travel and equally we all love makeup!! Isn’t it?

So to make it convinient for everyone brands are coming up with customizable palettes and that is the best thing to happen. Just one palette and you are sorted for your travel and holidays. Let’s see how can this be done:

  • Empty Palettes

First we need an empty palette in which we can set all our makeup products. There are several brands which provide empty palettes, so if you have not tried go ahead and try them.

  • Compact Powder

Get that base right with the perfect compact powder and add a block of it to the palette.

  • Blush

Blush is a must have in your makeup kit but don’t you guys think it takes a lot of space in your makeup bag. Well what if you can get small blocks of blushes also in the shades you love along with all your makeup.

  • Eye Shadows

Frosty, foiled, matte, velvety and many more the kinds and shades of eye shadows are unending. But wait for travelling you don’t need too many shades so go ahead and buy your favourites and put them all in just one handy palette.

  • Highlighters

We alll might be familiar with the question:

People: “What’s the glow you are wearing?”

Me: It’s theBalm’s Mary Lou Manizer

So now you can just grab the highlighters you love and put them in one palette.

  • Lipsticks

The more the merrier is the concept of lipsticks for me so a block of lipstick won’t hurt your palette.

All About A Casual Attire By H&M!

How can we wear casual outfit and yet look glamorous is something we all question!

The solution has always been there, with adding the right accessories and makeup. It changes the whole outfit game and makes one look glamorous. I was going out to meet friends for lunch and I wanted to dress casually with minimalistic things. So I opted for denim shorts and black shirt by H&M. Shorts are my favourites when it comes to going for casual outings.

The outfit was not enough, so to enhance the complete look I added accessories to it- Tote, glares & footwear. I have been loving these silver footwear by H&M a lot. This whole look is completely taken from H&M. Right from tote, footwear, shirt & shorts.

When it comes to makeup red lips add the touch of glamour required for a casual look. Red bold lips are my current obsession and I am believer of having bold lips when the outfit is casual. Red lips and red glared add the pop to the whole outfit.

A Carefree Bohemian Look!

I am a free at heart kind of person, who does what they love doing without worrying about the world! And so is my dressing, my dressing speaks about the kind of person I am.

Inspiration of the look:

DSCN0538DSCN0542

This look is inspired by bohemian and hippie side of mine- wanderer, happy and carefree. I am wearing a flowy floral short dress paired with metallic headband, flats and round reflectors. Each element of the look talks about being carefree and in my own world. Round reflectors, metallic headbands and flats are the statement pieces in the whole look.

This look is apt for:

This look is apt if you are planning to go on an outing at beach side or pool parties. It has a touch of funkiness and bohemian style.

Key elements of the look:

This look is all about the small elements that work superbly to enhance the look, so if you are planning to get this look following things are must:

  • Round Reflectors
  • Metallic Headbands
  • Metallic Flats

DSCN0539

Makeup for the look:

When I talk about the look it isn’t just accessories, it is also about makeup. With such pop of accessories it is important to keep makeup subtle. That is why I have kept simple eyes with just dark green liner, plain face without any highlighter or blush and bold lips with red colour. So the idea is not to add a lot of colours and to make face look all natural. So you can keep bold matte lips, keeping everything else simple. Lipstick options can be- red, orange, purple, black.

Instagram Post Never shy away from who you are

Hair for the look:

Hair should be kept messy, some of the options are open hair similar to what I have kept or hair with small braids and metallic headband.

DSCN0545

Footwear for the look:

Footwear should always be flats as heels would negate the carefree vibes, also keeping the metallic theme in mind metallic slides are perfect.

Look details:

Short Dress: Singapore Street Shopping

Metallic Headband: Sarojini Nagar Street Shopping

Reflectors: H & M

Metallic Sliders: H & M

Lipstick: Colorbar Hollywood Lip Stain

Eyeliner: Lakme Eyekonic in shade Green

Face: MAC Studio Fix SPF 15 Foundation NC37

Nails: Nykaa Matte Nailpaint Shade Chocolate Ganache

This was all about my views for carrying a carefree bohemian look!

“Summer dressing done right- an inspiration from flowers blooming everywhere despite of heat”

Isn’t it a good kind of strange that flowers bloom despite of scorching heat!

 It inspires me to get going even during the days full of obstacles and difficulties. I have always believed that hurdles make us stronger and bring fruitful outcomes. Nature inspires us to look around and observe the beauty, not just scenic beauty but also beauty of life. It tries to inspire us at every step of life. Keeping this in mind I got a dress from Chumbak with prints showcasing flowers and dream catchers. The dress is a perfect blend of dark base with bright print. It can be worn during summers as well as during winters, daytime and evenings, casual and parties. 







So when things start falling apart and nothing seems right just remember best things are grown out of hardships. 

My clothes are always inspired by something that has value attached to it, it speaks out what kind of person I am. I want all of you to look around yourself and observe before you feel like giving up!

Exploring Luxurious Ayurveda With Forest Essentials 

Nowadays people are getting more aware of the damage products containing chemicals can cause, so they are switching to pure ayurvedic products.

In search of exploring pure and luxurious ayurvedic and natural products I found Forest Essentials.

As soon as I enter their store, the aroma is so rejuvenating and calming. I am a person who loves calming aroma, so to me it was perfect. They have huge variety of products right from skincare, haircare amd body care.

After exploring everything it was time to buy the products, my purpose for entering the store was to find something for hair. One great thing about their store is you get travel size products, which really help you if you are looking to try for the first time.

I bought several products for my skin and hair :

  •  Floral Makeup Remover 
  •  Delicate Facial Cleanser in two variants – Kashmiri Saffron & Neem and Purifying Soya Milk 
  •   Facial Toner in two variants – Pure Rosewater and Panchpushp 
  •  Light Day Lotion (Madurai Jasmine & Mogra) 
  •  Ultra Rich Body Lotion (Nargis) 
  • Hair Cleanser (Amla, Honey & Mulethi)
  • Intensive Hair Repair Mask (Japapatti & Brahmi) 

With all these products I got Saundarya Advanced Serum with 24 karat gold sample free. And I love the brands that give customers free samples to try. 

My first impressions –

I have tried some of the products from the above mentioned products and how they turned out to be-

  • Floral Makeup Remover – It is made up of several floral oils and has such sweet floral fragrance. Very less quantity is required and it removes even heavy makeup. I am in love with this one! 100 ml is priced at ₹ 675. Reaction with this purchase – Happy
  • Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri Saffron & Neem – It is a mild cleanser which removes all the impurities from face, suitable for acne prone oily skin. My skin felt clean and refreshed just after first wash. The great part is that it doesn’t lather much as it is all natural. Travel size (50 ml) – ₹295, Full size (200 ml) – ₹1075 Reaction with this purchase – Happy
  • Facial Toner Pure Rosewater – I tried making rosewater at home and this has almost similar aroma which shows how natural it is. Just three pumps and my face is good to go. It makes me feel refreshed and relaxed. Travel size (50 ml) – ₹350, Medium size (100 ml) – 595₹ , Full size (200 ml) – ₹1075. Reaction with this purchase – Happy
  • Hair Cleanser Amla, Honey & Mulethi – My sole purpose of visiting Forest Essentials store was to find something suitable for my hair as they have been damaged by chemical treatment and yes I can say I took right decision by visiting their store. Although it is too soon to tell as I have used their cleanser only thrice but I can see the difference. Travel size (50 ml) – ₹325, Full size (200 ml) – ₹1295. Reaction with this purchase – Happy

Other products I haven’t tried yet and some are for my mother. But just want to mention that if you are looking for all natural effective products go ahead and try this brand, in true sense it is luxurious ayurveda. The best part is you can buy travel size products which doesn’t burn hole in your pocket and if they suit you then buy full size. Just loved my shopping experience with them, the shop assistants are very helpful and polite and the products turned out to be amazing. Not just this they keep all products wrapped in butter paper inside their store bag and add flower petals and fragrance to it.

Eye pencils I have used recently

I love experimenting with different colours on my eyes as well as keeping it subtle. My inclination is towards coloured eye liners as they help to enhance the daily look without any extra effort.

In summers my preference is coloured eye liners over eye shadows because my face is sweat prone. Recently I have started using three eye liners and look forward to experiment with more bolder shades soon.

My recent to go eye pencils are :

  • Kiko Milano smart colour eye pencil in shade 07. It is light mauve shade which is just perfect for summers. Keeping the whole makeup subtle and simple but just add this on your eyes to enhances the look. It is smooth and easy to apply. Quantity is 1.12gms for ₹290. It is value for money, long lasting and glides easily.  
  • Lakme Eyeconic eye pencil in shade grey. The best part about this pencil is that it doesn’t need sharpner, it is twist and roll pencil. It’s formulation is smooth and light. The colour is super pigmented and is great even for creating smoky eyes. It is waterproof so sweating isn’t any problem. The only concern for this product is that it smudges a bit on my eyes. 0.35 gms is priced at ₹275. 
  • L’Oréal Silkissime eye pencil in the shade plum. It is smooth and easy to apply eye pencil. The pigmentation is fantastic. My only concern about this pencil is that after every application it needs to be sharpened. 1.1 gms is priced at ₹ 575. It is expensive because it finishes off quickly, the pigmentation is superb. If you want to buy this do buy it during sale because that is what I do 🙂  

I love these three because of their formulation and colour.


I am definitely going to buy more shades in Kiko Milano range.
