Friday Poll

I read this poll on Ashiwini's Clearly Beautiful Blog and was inspired to do it myself. I hope you enjoy reading it.      
 1. Mood: 
 Well, I just had a piece of Swiss Chocolate. So what kind of mood do you think I am in.

2. What do you do for a living? 
 I am an OD consultant so my work involves helping organizations, teams and people cope with business changes. Basically bringing about organizational and team culture transitions to help them stay relevant, respond faster and adapt better to changing business scenarios.

3. Who’s in your posse? 
Friends I have made through my journey through the years. Lots of them to name here, but I am proud of them all.

4. What projects are you currently working on?
I am trying to re-organise my time habits so that I can get back to my tarot card practice, as well as get back to my “oat porridge every morning”  habit. I just recently have gotten back to incorporating reading daily in my schedule. It is all in flux right now, which is why I haven’t been able to post daily.

5. If one were to open your bedroom closet, what would they find? 
I think they would first have to come to their senses, since I am pretty sure they will get buried under or knocked out by the pile of handbags & clothes that land on their head.
Seriously, my closet is a mess, and it is just too tiny.

6. Where do you find inspiration? 
For life in general, from dancing. I just love the way you lose yourself in the music and at that point you live in the moment, only for the beat. That is how, I feel, life should be lead.

For makeup, from movies & actors. They tend to be on top of trends & experiment a lot. Recently I saw Prince of Persia & was totally inspired by the female lead's khol laden eyes enough to come back and attempt an Egyptian eye look.

7. When you aren’t working, how do you like to unwind?
I watch a lot of movies. Just this past weekend I saw 4 and tomorrow I am going for Rajneeti (I hope it's good) Other than that I love going to TGIFs on Saturdays and also enjoy listening to pop music esp. Lady Gaga. I also read & love playing Café World &  Age of Mythology (I have been addicted for like 4 yrs now, with no signs of rehab)

8. Where are you right now? 
When I drafted this, at home. Just posted this from office. 

9. Outfit
In office – Indigo blue kurta which has a deep green motif paired with deep green churidar and gladiator style flats in cream. Metallic watch from Fasttrack.

10. Your weekly goals: 
To be able to get back to oats in breakfast as well as back to reading.

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…
