Life Update : Moving from India, COVID 19 Lockdown 2020

Hello beauties,

Though I have been missing in action, since like forever... you are always there in my thoughts, like always.

Some small and some big changes at the personal and professional front kept me away from the blogging world for so long, that I can hardly remember... seems just like yesterday that I published my first blog post (more of a beauty rambling) and now sitting in a land far, far away I can only but remember those good old days...

So, now for the updates: I have moved with my family to UK (United Kingdom) in February 2020 in the midst of the COVID scare and before I could say lo and behold... we found ourselves and the entire world in a lockdown. The situation is tough though not grim and we have spent the past few days in isolation, getting to know ASDA and Sainsbury for our grocery needs and Netflix and BBC for our entertainment.

Luckily my son is getting school work, which keeps both of us busy and my hubby is WFH. As for me I am getting used to a life without maids, which the entire Indian middle class is also coping with (pun intended).

So, I will try and write more as I have a little more time on my hands and post some of my lockdown skin care essentials and survival tips (to emerge at the end looking like our best selves and not ugly ducklings, since the salon situation is going to get stabilised in a few months time) and also start sharing some beauty emergency tips, which I discovered here, some which I wanted to buy like always and some beauty essentials, which you must carry if you are ever planning to settle abroad (for initial few days, in my case for a complete 12 months, hehe :) ) and some amazing beauty staples I have discovered here, which would help you survive in this lockdown :)

Till then, keep looking good and feeling sane...

Stay indoors, stay safe, stay healthy!!!

Hello beauties,

Weekedn is just upon us but in this sweltering heat there is simply no place to go except for the malls! I am planning to spend these days indoor with some simple home cooked food and avoiding the malls simply because I am so bored with them right now, hehe :)

It's a product which has changed my skin care game completely and that too when I started out it was with very very low expectations of anything worthwhile happening. Today's product under review is It's Skin Power 10 Formula Q10 Effector Serum with coenzyme 10. Read on to know my experience with this product...

Lotus Herbals Color Kick Lip Sugar in Rose, Swatch, Review

Hello beauties, 

Today I am reviewing a new launch (ok may not that new) from Lotus Herbals, the Colorkick Lip Sugar with SPF 20. Be it summers/winters, I simply cannot lilve without my lip balms. I have to use them daily else my lips crack pretty badly. Out of the gazillion lip balms out there, I have found the ones from Lotus Herbals to be the best in terms of skin moisture restorative powers. So when I found out that Lotus Herbals has come out with a new lip balm version I was super excited to try it. While there are around 5-6 shades, I have bought the shade. Read on to know about my experience with this newly launched Lotus Herbals lip balm.

Jovees Hair Serum Review

Hello beauties,

How are you doing? Summers are here and I am loving every moment of it :) As my older readers would know how much I love summers and my new readers know now how much I love the summers :)

So, summers though fun lead to extreme dryness of skin and scalp owing to the air conditioned environment we live in these days. And even though my hair are on the oilier and limpier side I need to apply a leave-in serum in my hair to make them managable and keep them in a frizz free state. So, today I am sharing my experience of using a new hair serum from an Indie brand called Jovees with you all. Read on to more about this product...
