Summer pampers 

The heat outside of the doors of your house is effecting your skin inside the doors as well. Summers are more harsh on your skin than any other weather.

Today, I am going to share a DIY face pack and scrub with you to pamper yourself from this harsh heat.

Summers! Really! Why?? All these words surround our thoughts throughout the lazy months of summers. Our skin is a lot dirtier, sticky, sweaty and what not?

Pimples, black and white heads, greasiness, spots and the list is never ending. All of this is due to the extreme heat and dust outside our doors.

I usually don’t like to do anything! But then after encounter with such weather, we come home with visible dirt and a muggy face, we feel like taking an extra step.

I thought of doing something for it, which I couldn’t figure out for a while ( I was too lazy). Then one day I thought of having mangoes and while slicing it down, I thought of applying it on my face.

Applying mango alone is not a bad idea too. Mangoes are very good for your skin. But as I am taking extra efforts to apply it to my face , I like adding few more things to it. The same day I made almond milk  and I had crushed almonds left with me after that, which I was thinking to do something with. I thought of mixing mango and almond together.

The quantity was a spoon of mango pulp and a spoon of broken left over almonds and I mixed both of them and applied it on my face.

After keeping it for 25-30 mins, I slowing started scrubbing it for almost 5-7 mins to just let the mango pulp go inside the skin a little more absorbing all the benefits from them.

Later I washed my face with normal running water.

Mangoes have a lot of good things for your skin. It has vitamin A, C, E, K, B6, thiamine, riboflavin, iron , potassium, calcium , zinc , fibre and many more good things which helps in enhancing your skin health, they can be used to treat blackheads, they are good for acne treatments, they help in reducing blemishes and dark spots and they offer a lot more benefits.

Almonds have vitamin E which helps in maintaining its youthful firmness. It has Vitamin B which helps in maintaining healthy fatty acids in the skin , it removes dry, flacks skin and helps to create a healthy skin. Almonds have copper which helps fighting premature aging. It is packed with all good things which is good for both inside and outside of your skin and body.

The mix of mango and almond was too much for a day use, so I kept it in the fridge for few more days. It was fresh and could be used for atleast 1 week, if you keep it in the fridge the life of it becomes longer.

I just applied it and did my everyday chores and took bath immediately after 30 mins of applying it. It is an extra step for a good and healthy skin. when the mix is already prepared and you just have to apply it on your skin, it makes you feel less burdened.

After 3 days of applying it, I thought of adding something more to the mix, to give a hint of something new and different. So, I added a spoon of honey to the mix, which surely added extra qualities to it.

Honey has antifungal and antibacterial properties and it has skin saving antioxidants. It helps in reducing acne , helps in fighting aging , it boosts complexion and also opens up the pores giving the skin an extra touch of goodness.

I mixed everything properly and applied it on the face and neck for another 3 days. The mix was good, it smelled fresh and was smooth on the skin too.

The honey actually added a little difference to both my mix and my skin. It gave a little shine to my face adding some freshness and newness to my skin. My skin felt smooth and I could see visible difference, my spots were lighter and acne was gone. My skin actually felt different.

Everything from your kitchen and something you can DIY and use in your daily lives. It is surely an extra step but this extra step once a week and then for a whole week can change your skin.

Thank you for your interest and I would always welcome suggestions from your end. I hope you like this DIY. I would be coming up with more such DIY’s to create some difference in your lives and your skin too.

Thank you

Late birthday post! 

Hello guys,

I really appreciate your interest and I am always open to new ideas and suggestions from your end. I hope you like what I try to convey.

This is a very late post! I was actually thinking to post it since a long time now, but always kept forgetting. So, last night I was going through my old photographs to find a good display picture for my whatsapp and I found a bunch of pictures from my birthday.

The birthday picture were quite a push to my current mood and got me thinking to a series of thoughts from the time and all the conversations started coming up to my mind.

Birthdays are always special and exciting l, so was mine. I was very excited about my birthday dress, my lunch date with girlfriends and gifts and other things.

I was searching for my birthday lunch dress from quite a while by then. I was visiting malls and showrooms to find a perfect birthday dress. But couldn’t find it!

It was for lunch so I wanted something casual, cute and something that clicks to me at the first look ( coz clothes which clicks at ones are the ones you wear the most ). Even after browsing a lot of places, I couldn’t find the one dress that would fit my requirements.

So, tired and frustrated I was browsing online sites Jabong , myntra and StalkBuyLove in search for my perfect birthday dress.

After all the searching I found two perfect birthday dresses one for lunch and the other for the dinner date, both online. The lunch date birthday dress was from Jabong and the night date dress was from StalkBuyLove.

I was more than happy and excited for my birthday after that. All the things I ordered came before time and that made me a lot excited.

The birthday dress was from Miaminx , Jabong, it is a really cute, cold shoulder dress perfect for the birthday lunch. I wanted to wear a cute tiara with it, I got the tiara long before my birthday ( I was too excited for it) I wore my Zara sneakers with it and my goggles from missa_ more_ clothing , Instagram. 

It was a cold shoulder dress, so I wanted to tie my hair, so that the cold shoulder is visible properly. I braided my front hair from both sides and tied it back into a ponytail after which I wore my tiara.

I did minimal makeup a small wing on the side and not a full wing , just to make it look minimal and cute and a little lipstick shade orange from colourbar. The bag I carried is from flipkart, BH wholesale market.

The dress was surely what I wanted for my lunch date, it was something casual and something for dates like this. The overall look was something I planned for. It was perfect for my birthday. I got so many compliments on my dress and my look which made my day.


Thank god Jabong was there to save me for the day an StalkBuyLove for the night. Loved both my dresses and extremely loved my goggles that I got from missa more clothing.

Thank you my saviours.
Thank you

Late Sunday date!

Hello guys,

Sorry as I couldn’t upload any blog in the past few weeks. I would really appreciate your interest and suggestions always. I hope I reach you through my words and my ideas. Thanks for always supporting and engaging yourself through it. 

This blog is about my sunday date and the look that I created for the night. On a Sunday, me and my girlfriends suddenly decided to go out on a dinner date. It was already 7:30pm by the time we decided to go. So all of us were on our toes, running and preparing our clothes and everything to just jump and to start getting ready for an already late date plan. 

I decided to wear my forever 21 dress, it is a knee length dress which had repeated prints all over. The dress had brown and maroon in it , so I thought to go for a brown and gold eye makeup for the quick look. 

I didn’t wanted to go over the top with my casual body fit forever 21 dress. I wanted to keep it low and simple.

I went ahead with applying burntout from the urban decay naked 3 palette on the eye lids. After being satisfied with the depth and quantity of the colour , I applied trick on the inner corners and blended it till both the colours were well combined. Then I applied mugshot on the outer corners and blended everything till I got something like this in the end. 


I made a small winged eye at last, applied a sober amount of mascara and blush from maybelline fit me shade medium coral (202)  and at last I applied a deep red lipstick from Lakmé enrich collection to go with the makeup and the outfit. 

It took me less than 10 mins to create the whole look. It is really easy and a very quick get away look in just 10 mins. 

I am very new with makeup but the outcome really impressed me. And now I know I can work with colours on my eyes better. 

I would really appreciate your feedback. 

( I regret for the bad pictures) 
Thanks
