  1. aww the cuppy cakes look delicious! and my mouth's watering just thinking about sev puri! i think i better go have my dinner now...

  2. Enjoyed ur post :) loved the vodafone part....LOL

    I never thougtht somebody wud do the tag so quick, but this is that kind of tag where u can simply sleep and type..........

  3. Tanny is a lovely name..think i'll go by it. what say?


    Vodafone answer is ROTFL

  4. Hey T, u have surely made me the new make up actually thinking about sale at mac .. hehehehe.. ur 3's of me are interesting

  5. MAC does not hold sales, I asked them. lol!! Whenever I come to Bombay, I binge on sev puri, batata vada and pao bahji. I think no one else can make them better. We get Mumbai behl puri in Delhi but it is no where close to what you get there. :) Love the boil corn and rajma chawal as well.

    Did I ever mention that my in-laws are in Jabalpur and I go there quite often? :D

  6. Bombay sev puri is so much heard that now reading your post i really want to try it out.

    and your visiting thing is really funny Tanveer:))

  7. Hehe...I actually called a Mac store to ask them if they have a company outlet n they didn't understand wht I meant! They kept saying yes we have outlets (stores) :D. I want UD n BB toooo...le sigh


  8. @Rima: I know.. such a vintage kind of picture na.. these days you just don't get such vintage baked food anymore - it is all souffles and all such fancy stuff. :D

    @Divs: Thks.. Yea, I was feeling a little lazy and this tag seemed real easy & quick to do :D

    @Gurupreet: Ha ha :D
    Welcome to the club.. MAC does not have sales, I think.. Ppl are so crazy about their stuff that they sell out anyways - they don't need sales to clear inventories. Personally I love their PR & marketing strategy. Has ensured that MAC is one of those brands that never needs a sale ;)

  9. @Rati: I think every Indian city has its own special chat, I always love trying new street food - Bombay has bhel & sev puri, Punjab has its papdi chat (which ppl make a hash of over here), jabalpur has its tomato chat..

    Btw, even my in-laws are in Jabalpur :)

  10. @Anamika: next time yr in Mumbai u must try it.. :D..

    I didn't understand the visiting thing u found funny :P.. care to elaborate? :D

  11. @CZ: I don't think MAC even understand the concept of discount or sale, since they really don't need those things to move their inventory.. all their products sell like hot cakes...

    The other day I saw MAC fluidline in black being sold for 400 bucks at my local beauty store. It looked so dam genuine.. I just could not figure out if it was a Chinese dupe or original.. I was really tempted, but then better sense took over and I left it.

  12. MAC and Sale!!In the same sentence!!That is funny!!
    Nice n fun post..
    I will surely hav dreams of a Mac sale tonight..

  13. @Simran: I Know.. if wishes were horses that beggars could ride.. *sigh* :D :D

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
