Lotsa Blog Awards!

I have just been lazy over the last few weeks, but I have to do this now. I have been at the receiving end (pun unintended) of a lot of blog awards & time now to pass on the mantle.

First award was from Poohkie who is the author is of the lovely blog Poohkie's Palace. You must check out her blog for her super duper easy make it yourself kajal recipe for the blackest black kajal

I also think I got some awards from Srish of Style Fashion Etc (visit her blog for the latest fashion trends) & Mehak of Peaches & Blush (very sensible makeup advice for Indian girls new to makeup), but unfortunately I can't find those awards now :(.. I am sorry.

PS: This is what happens when your maid just goes AWOL on you for like 2 weeks now. Scatterbrain attacks.

Anyway, I would like to thank my fellow bloggers for all the lovely awards, and my readers for reading my blog :)

I would like to pass on these awards to all Indian Makeup Bloggers. Everyone is doing a gr8 job in their own sweet way and you all have lovely blogs that I have come to really like.

Have a nice week people!


  1. Hey !!!

    these maid issues..i feel like jumping from my building because of them :P

  2. Hi Tanveer.I know its not the right place to post my questions but I am so confused where to post always help us with makeup so may be u can give some ideas about how to store & organize them?how do you organize your makeup products ???

    oh,one more thing.what do you think about married girls wearing fancy/costume jewellery (not the traditional gold or silver ones)??? Should women more than 30yrs age wear those??Its a question my elder sister wants to know.

  3. Haha...I see everybody go crazy when maids go AWOL. That's why I don't keep one :D

    Congrats on yr many awards T


  4. Congrats on the awards Tanveer you totally deserve them

  5. hey thanks for mentioning me. I haven't mailed you as yet. Will send in some time.

  6. Congrats Tanveer :) Its so nice to get one :)

  7. I don't keep one cus of three reasons, I don't like liers(maids lie), I am too emotional (I have this super huge corner for poors, I can allow them to loot my house)and I love doing my household chores on my own(It's fun!!).

    COngrats Tanvi, you really deserver these blog awards and many more are on their way for sure!!


  8. @Anks: So glad u understand!

    @Monali: No issues :)

    I am the last person who should advice you on how to store or organize your makeup. I just have this huge vanity case and I have dunked all eyeliners on one side & lipsticks on the other. Everything else that is too big or won’t fit in is in this jute bag next to it. That is my idea of storage & organization. I just take care to close everything tight in zip lock bags so no dust can enter & also keep it away from sunlight

    As for fancy jewellery, I defiantly think women more than 30 can wear them. But just keep them classy. Invest in pearl or semi precious stones. Even if you get oxidized metal get those that look good and feel expensive. Don’t buy anything in plastic or with shoddy workmanship. Basically it should not look cheap like you bought them in the local train. I hope I was able to help you.

    @CZ: If you don’t have a maid then who does the housework??!!

    Thks CZ :)

    @Shuchita, Bhumika: Thks

    @Poohkie: Thks for the award sweety!

    @Aarthi: It is! Thks

    @Shoppingaholic: Thks :).. I honestly hate doing housework, and plus my job leaves me with little time.

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…
