My hair has always been a complicated topic for me. I was a curly haired girl (where my sistahs at?) right from my golliwog days in school to my tight ringlets in college. When I was really young (5-7 maybe) I used to get my mum to tie a pink towel around my head which I would swish around me, pretending I had long silky hair like the women in all those shampoo commercials. I hated my hair asa kid because I never understood it. It was always short and curly or shoulder length with no curls and just so difficult to manage. Frizz was my worst enemy. It’s only when I came to college in Bangalore that a really cool senior of mine realised I had no clue about one of my strongest assets. She taught me about step-haircuts, serums, mousse and hand-scrunching, and after then there was no looking back. I fell in love with my curls and I never wanted anything different.

I’m writing this piece for all those women out there who go through the same thing and for everyone who shudders at the words “menstruation” or “period”. A woman’s cycle is the most natural part of her existence and also the reason she can bear children. Continue reading “The Monthly Monster”
I have always been a fan of neutrals and basics. When it comes to comfort, I automatically find myself reaching for a black tee and jeans. If I have to ‘dress up’ a bit for brunch or dinner, I gravitate towards white because it’s always an elegant choice.

That’s me, happy! Happy and on top of the world because it was a good day. I was out with my best friend, I was eating good food (a bacon cheeseburger) and listening to some great music. It was an amazing day! Because I was happy!
The other day I saw this girl limping around Forever 21 and I was curious. At first I thought she was hurt. So I did what anyone (okay, maybe not anyone) would do and stalked her for a bit while pretending to be interested in some very skimpy (so not-me) clothes.
I’m a romantic at heart and I love being in love. I grew up with my nose in a book and yes, romance has always been one of my favorite things. I love proposals and weddings and candlelit dinners. And I look forward to my own wedding one day.
I haven’t done a makeup post in a while and I’ve never shared the process of what goes into a particular look. I guess that’s because my brain is so scattered most of the time that I forget to even take pictures at every stage. However, I am going to try to explain one of my go-to looks right here, in this post.
I have been searching and experimenting and looking and dying for good skincare products for a few months now. Everything I tried fell flat and nothing seemed to work for my skin. Of late I’ve been experiencing redness, dull skin and bumpy patches around my T-zone. And the oiliness! Let’s take a moment to acknowledge the feeling of an oil tanker exploding on your face each morning. Oily skin girls, you feel me, don’t-cha?
Vitamin E to your skin is like water to a fish. Your skin revels in every little dose of Vitamin E it can get. Be it face masks, food or oil, make sure to include it one way or another in your skin care regime.
