Plan your work, work your plan..


Hey,

Technology keeps advancing by the day. From the alarms that wake us everyday, to the expense tracker in our mobile and the online tools for cab booking that are just a click away, technology has been ruling us. But there are still some people like me, who just love the smell of paper. Planning has undergone a tremendous tech-change, and yet I use a planner (and a dozen pens to decorate them) for my everyday goals and to-do.

I’ve always been very choosy when it comes to stationary. And most of the planners never convinced me completely, until I came across this planner by Nirmala Franklin, that I simply could not resist.

It’s metal coil binding keeps your memories safe for long. There is also a zipper pouch and a pocket to store important bills, receipts and letters close to heart.

Attaching a few pictures of the planner, to make it easier for you guys to grab this one.

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 🙂

Check their products Here.

Till the next post,

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.

Till then,

The Think Session


With my assessments in a day , I tried to minimize all my distractions and concentrate all the time I had into studying . I closed my door , and settling on a chair that wouldn’t let me sleep in comfort , I opened the index of my textbook titled “Software Engineering” . Giving myself a motivational pat , I skimmed through the contents of the first chapter and got ready to mug it all up ! I took a sip of the coke that was kept just for the purpose , that I don’t sleep and felt ecstatic !
Opening the first page of the book stating “What is software ?” , my brain , being amazingly awesome as well as awfully crappy, started thinking of other “What is ” topics! It crossed topics on fun , school , college , friends , celebs , and I finally made a halt on what I am and what I am not .

 

I began processing on comments people generally had about me ! Any person would have mixed comments and if he didn’t it just meant he hadn’t met the real world yet . I opened the screenshot gallery of my mobile and noticed that a few brought smiles on to my all-messed-up face and some others made me think if it really meant so . I ended up realising that be it flattery or a not so great comment , I was something more than just what people thought ! I understood that at the end of the day people(hi-bye friends) approach you just to get their job done ! Why sit and do an entire work when you have people out there who are so jobless that they get flattered easily and end up thinking awesome about you , two days after which you can approach them with ease for any favor . Well that’s the world today ! *Oops, wasn’t I learning something ? O.o ”

Taking another gulp from the coke can I realised I wasn’t in the mood to study anything. Closing my book , I started penning down a poem about “Today’s world” which went like this .

Once there were only a few evil,

whom it was easy for the Gods to kill,

But today , the good percent is turning nil,

inside every angelic face resides a devil !

 

The world has come to a stand ,

where inner beauty is no demand,

all one needs is prettiness in hand,

with values burried deep in sand.

 

Today a favor…

My mom walked in with french fries in a plate , knowing that it was the love of my life and expecting me to relax a little after studying hard for an hour ! Anyways , with fries there’s no more anything else ! So well , I’l be back with the rest of it !

 

Adios !

 

Signed,

Mythu

My valentine ;)


Okay , I’v decided my valentine , almost a month before 14th feb , coz I’m sure , I gotto befriend this “X” for atleast the next three months ! Wait ! Don’t come to conclusions ! My exams are a in a few months’ time and I thought of titling my books as my valentine (Short time bf 😉 ) .. My subjects are physics , chemistry , math , computer science , english and language .. The latter three are awesome 🙂 And the first three , not that they are bad , but it’s that I gotto learn them , YES “*learn*” them , which like eats my head .. 😦

 

Just wanted to come and post this and go back to working on my Calculus .. 😉

 

Stay joyous friends , c ya soon 🙂

 

Te amo 🙂

 

Cranky me ^.^

 

I know ..


I know ,

You care for me,

as much as I do,

and you do worry,

for my life too ..

 

Just that I show it ,

and you don’t,

does it make the bond unfit ?

I believe it wont 🙂

 

We’ll be high always,

as we are today,

for life says,

We will pave a way 🙂

 

The greatest strength ,

is that it is WE,

So will it be for any length,

not you and me 🙂

 

Te amo 🙂

 

CrAnKy Me ^_^

 

 

Realization


 

I realized .. That I can predict accurately any person whom I know in this world , except one soul , one mortal.. A person who is as normal as any other, and special to me too .. Frustration filled me , why not just that one heart ? 😦

Don’t wonder who it is.. It’s myself 😕

I pondered all night and I still couldn’t figure out WHY !!

 

God save ! 🙂

 

Cranky me ^_^

Is my luv lyk d fish in d lake

that mite or mite nt live as dawn wakes..

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

that may end up n tears, sniffles n deep sorrw..

Yet I promise to luv u lyk a mother,

n think f r lyf together..

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 🙂

 

Cranky me ^_^

ME: Welcome all ! Maybe I should start with Scotty Mccreery’s Luv you this Big 🙂 I luv you all so much !

H : So thats why we’re here! So how much do you luv us ?

ME : Umm , how do I answer that one ? My hands don’t have elastic , I can’t stretch them too much .. :-/

ME: *Second ? Oh yea , Cleopatra won the race first 😦 Grrr ..* I’m honored to luv a one of a kind like you .. Man , you totally rock 🙂

E: Wait , but when most of the world think I was born crazy and I died crazier , how come u think I was sane ?

ME : *Coz I’m insane myself !* Ummm , I really like the philosophy part of you .. And I’m crazy ’bout ur frizzy hair !

A : So you bring out sarcasm too?

ME: Wait , I’d luv too .. But I swear , It’s not .. I really like AE’s hair !

H : So do you think what I did all life was right?

ME : *Is this the time for judgement ? And He’s already dead rite ?* Right and wrong are relative terms , so i think it’s right from your point of view and wrong from the perception of some others ..

E : Wow ! This sounds like the theory of relativity ! Relative terms, may be I should have researched on this too !

ME : U sure should have .. 😉 Btw , I wanted to know how all of you are treated right now like after *death* ur living in the earth has ended ..

H : U’r trying to use nice words are you ? Wait , your an Aaryan right ?

ME : *You cant kill me now , yay* I’m not sure , sir , will get myself checked for that ..

A : I’m treated well , and I did meet caesar once , he was happy for my acts .. He  was yet a little disappointed with Brutus , his angel , u know ..

ME : Yeah , Shakespeare told me , I luv his version of the story ..

H : Tell me one person you don’t like ! Each of ur sentence ends with “I luv this n that” !

ME : Nice to see a Jovial Hitler sir! 🙂 Btw , a question out of curiosity , what was with Calpurnia after caesar’s death ? There’s no description ’bout her all thru wiki and google 😕

E : I did’nt do any thesis ’bout her , did I ?

A : Mr Albert Einstein , dat was posed to me 😉

E : oops , please elucidate !

A : Actually , she was all thru sorrow , as she already had the dreams of evil happenings and all I know is that she helped to raise Julia 🙂

ME : Oh, thoughtful of her 🙂

H : So young lady , do you anything else or could we take leave ?

ME : I read something ’bout your first luv 🙂 Could I know more ?

H : Ummm , I’l do that , I’l pass it to you by , ummm

ME : *Mail ?* by telepathy ! 🙂

H : That was cool , I’l do that 😉

ME : “Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.”

E : Wow , I’m glad you remember this 😉

ME : I’m damn crazzy ’bout ur quotes Mr AE 🙂 The’re Breath taking , awesome , mind blowing and wait , I’m short of words !

E : 😀 You flatter me too much don’t you !

ME : It’s nice right , flattering !

I’d like to tell you all something ,

I luv Hitler more as a man of will , than as a dictator

I luv Antony more as a friend , than as an orator,

I luv Einstein more for his philosophy , than as a science collimator 🙂

Be through me always and lead me 🙂

Have a happy “After life” 😉
