Lass Naturals


Hey guys,

Once you start using natural products, you start liking the way your skin reacts to it, and there’s finally no looking back to the chemical junk. So here I am, on my path of finding and reviewing natural products. I recently got a few products from lass naturals, which is SLS and paraben free and this is my personal opinion about the products. At the very outset the products are pocket friendly.

Lass lip balm : I swear by this, multiple times a day. I love the ingredient list and love the way it keeps my otherwise chapped lips, soft.

Lass body butter : I use this mainly for my feet, and I see a tremendous improvement in my feet since then. I like the mild citrus smell and fact that it gets absorbed by the skin quickly.

Lass shampoo : This shampoo claims to reduce hair fall. I’ve used it twice a week for two weeks, and I already seem to notice a chance. The only off side of it is that, a large quantity is to be used for all the oil to disappear, which I think is a bi product of it being natural.

Overall, lass has been an amazing brand for me, and I’m hoping to hear from you about the natural brands you’ve used so far 🙂

What’s that smell?


Hey guys,

It’s summer in most parts of India, and we all face a common problem – to smell good. Now, who doesn’t like to portray themselves as the guy/girl with a good fragrance? Everybody loves that attention. Spending thirty seconds of your morning time on spraying a perfume, for work, is one thing. But, summer calls for a handy pocket perfume, for the ‘just in case’ moments. And that’s were Neesh Perfumes came into play.

I was browsing for some good ‘pocket-friendly’ pocket perfumes (I haven’t started earning yet 😛 ) and I found this Indian attar (perfume) brand which claims to use natural and fresh ingredients. I found it’s fragrance range very unique and got to try two of the fragrances :

  1. Attar-E-Ishq : This one is my current travel-friendly favorite. It has a mild fragrance of vanilla with a little of nutmeg, bakhoor and cedarwood. The mild fragrance is what drew me towards it and if you are looking for some strong ones, you can try the other one.
  2. Moha-Beau-T : This one has a strong scent, but I love the way French rose and saffron have been mixed to give this a perfect Indo-Western touch.

The brand claims that these last for 12 hours, I can definitely assure a 10 hour “awesome you”. Not to forget the cute packaging, which can fit in your slings, or even your pockets. Coming to the cost, it costs 340 bucks for a 20 ml pack, which comes to less than 1 rupee per spray. (Each pack contains nearly 400 sprays 😉 )

You can know more about the other variants and purchase your favorites in the official website. These products are also available in the leading online websites like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal and ebay.

So Keep Calm and Smell Well.

Chemicals on your skin?


Fourteen years of schooling and four years of engineering have still not helped me to figure out what I wanna do with my life. So yes, the abstract happy news being I’m done with my studies, which also meant I had literally nothing to do. Comprehending my joblessness, I began searching and researching a lot on the internet (including facebook and instagram refreshes every 5 min). One of the two really productive things that this vacation saw me doing was to make a lot of DIY’s. I made a notebook, a planner, a few bookmarks, a jewelry kit and a few cute multi-purpose boxes ( all with a coffee by my side). I also tried my hand in a bit of doodling and sketching ( Umm, not great).

Of all the internet browsing, I also started discovering the ingredients in some of the cosmetic products I owned and in some more that I was planning to buy. Now, I liked to keep my beauty routine simple ( face wash – sunscreen – and.. end of list), and I made sure I used brands which ‘sounded herbal’. Now, the internet had proved me completely wrong. There were parabens, alcohols, carcenogens and a lot more chemicals, which by now would have embedded on my skin. That’s when I swore to use safer products and began researching on brands which were less familiar to the general world yet produced products from ingredients our ancestors used. These may seem slow to work, but your skin would definitely love it.

One of the safe brands in India, is Aroma Essentials which offers natural skin and hair care solutions of which I’ve began using a few products today. You guys can check this brand at AromaEss (facebook page) or AromaEssInsta (Insta page) and check out their amazing list of products. I’ll blog the review of the products in the next post, after using them for a few weeks. Till then,

A birrrthday Gift


This season is too awesome 😀 I’ve never experienced myself so lazy , so complacent with a To-do-nothing schedule in so many years .. 😦  I’m sleeping so much , the sleep that I used to hate in my 12 grade , just a few days back , which I remember as good as ever , and I’ll continue to , for they have given me so much JOY , small not-so-funny jokes , silly pranks and stupid laughs 😛 I’ll miss all this , for my life slowly meets the thin line of separation between school and college .. 🙂

Not to really say , I don’t like this routine of mine , which to be very precise isn’t really a BIG routine –

  • Get up at 8
  • Have a chit chat over my tea
  • Slowly realize I have to go for a shower
  • Have my brunch
  • Facebook
  • Read some book (periodical, magazine, newspaper or any novel that reaches my hand)
  • Eat something (For the fact that I’ve reduced 5 kilos in the past 3 months 😉 )
  • Sleeeeep , BIG time
  • Facebook again
  • Chats , teases , blah blah
  • Occasionally go out with friends , have a good time
  • Dinner ( I HAVE to eat )
  • Sleep
Well , in this busy plan of mine , hardly I get time to even blog , which is totally BAD i know 😦 Decided to blog better , this holiday season of mine .. 🙂
So beating around the bush , I’m here to the topic … 🙂 Well I’ve got a new awesome pack of friends .. 🙂 Ami , Navi , Srivi , Sallu , Pon , Niru 🙂 Though I’ve known them earlier , I had no chances to get so close with them 🙂 And now, It’s that 4 of them have their birthdays this month 😉
Navi – 10th
Srivi – 14th
Ami – 16th
Pon – 26th
Awesome right 😀 Well and now , the planning gifts thing was so so tough 😉 Coz , 1. The gifts of the previous birthday’s shouldn’t repeat and 2 . they must love it 😉
So we went on and on , and finally with all our thinking caps on , we decided a collage for navi 🙂 We choose the best pics of all 6 of us and we edited them and finally framed it 🙂
The best moment was when Navi told us “Awesome gift , luv ya all 🙂 ” Well finally one down , 3 on the list 😉 To be back to say , how the rest went on 🙂
Hoping the best to go on .. Allz well that ends well 🙂 🙂
Signed
*ME*
Excited to be alive 🙂

The Day ^_^


 

:-* Finally came d day I was dying for,

though I din kno f t were to b sweet or sore..

 

Joy filled n me like a ship being receivd at a harbour,

and in excitement I cuddled my pup’s gliterry fur..

 

Though my looks were usualy my last priority,

that day I wanted to look the best in the city,

in my usual place, I saw a different me,

I was there to rock the world, wild n free…

 

That day the world seemed all unique,

a paradise of people all gentle n meek,

By then my adrenalin set to its peak,

and I went on, the future to seek..

 

Seeing her, my mind was overflowing wid estacy,

and there I was in my dreamworld of fantasy..

I turned to see her n her eyes met mine,

and to catch the best of her, i turned to an angle of sine…

 

The bst moment was wen she raised her eyebrow,

my heart missd a beat, and the moment began to grow…

Dat minute Even My heart beat was a melody,

with the wrld arnd me a total rhapsody..

 

The whole of the nxt day went jus recalng ths love,

the extreme of the seeds of joy to sow.. 🙂

 

Te amo 🙂

 

Cranky me ^_^

Is my luv lyk d chick in an egg,

dat jus to liv n d world has to beg..

Is my luv lyk d unfulfiled xpctatns f tomrw

Yet I promise to luv u lyk a mother,

I promise to give u care wen in need,

n to watevr u say giv proper heed..

I promise to rejoice wen ur gay

and miss u tons when ur away..

I promise to be wid u when ur sad,

and tolerate all ur blastings wen ur mad..

I promise to swing to ur tune when u sing,

and evry occasion, sealed with a kiss, gift u a ring..

I promise that nt a drop of tear would flow frm ur eyes,

and do tell me anything else, if this wouldn suffice..

In short, what so ever u may do, I luv u..

And to please u, I’d stand in the world’s longest queue..

 

Te amo 🙂

Convo with GOD ;) (Too Cranky)


 

A few events took my mind off to my Historic Darlings ! The major reasons being ,

 

  • I had to write an essay on Caesar for my English paper  and the whole of my essay was blah blah ‘bout Antony 😛 Thank God I was so much in senses to not scribble “Love you Antony” Through out the paper ! 😉
  • I saw a documentary movie ‘bout Hitler , on the television the day before and I was totally moved , I had a few new things to learn ‘bout him and I was dreaming of him the whole night ! J
  • My physics paper had the question to derive mc² which naturally took my thoughts to the “Frizzy haired guy “ !

 

So  conclusion I had gone craazzzy again .. Just got this idea of a fiction involving these three people , Ummm I mean their souls 😉

 

ME : Gawdd ! I’m totally into these people , tough to decide whom to choose ! How good would it be if IF I COULD MEET THEM 😉

GOD : Amen ! So let it happen !

ME : How is that THY never listen to my serious prayers and make them stupid wishes to take shape dear LORD ?

GOD : ‘Coz ur cranky , I thot I could be a ‘lil more cranky with you 😉

ME : Now should I laugh or frown ? Ummm , anyways , Lemme say I love you more then all of ‘em !

GOD : Me too ! Now , it’s getting late ! Can we proceed YOUR talk ?

ME : Are you serious ? (I was thinking *God Get a life* 😛 )

GOD : Do I need a life? 😉

ME : Oops , U can mind read like Edward na ? Sorry 😉

GOD : Ahem , so You compare A vampire and God ?! WOW 😛

ME : Couldn’t come up with a better reply ! Forgive !

GOD : No probs ! Gotto go sweets , enjoy with them 😉

*Enjoyy? Like what??*
