Beauty products I found through Korean dramas

By now, you know, am knee-deep in K-Dramas and contemplating the meaning of life through bowls of Tteokbokki and Ramyun, boomerangs of Gong Yoo while suffering through an acute second-lead syndrome. After a good CLOY watch, I went on a rampage and watched every romantic slash sentimental slash heartbreaking K-Drama the internet and Netflix threw up in my searches and I see no end to … Continue reading Beauty products I found through Korean dramas

My recent skincare routine: Basics + hormonal acne + simple stuff

Skincare-To-Go: At the fag end of 2020, I was in Alibaug for a short break. Fed up of being at home, we just took the RoRo and spent three days without a worry, just eating, sleeping and doing nothing. We just did not get out of the room, it was room service, Terminator on loop and long baths in the tub as we missed pool … Continue reading My recent skincare routine: Basics + hormonal acne + simple stuff

Why I love CEO Yoo Jin Woo AKA Hyun Bin’s style in Memories of Alhambra #k-dramas

We’ll go through the disclaimers first. Yes, am late to the K-Drama bandwagon. I am also pretty late in discovering Hyun Bin, his dimples and his stellar acting chops. Now, I am watching a 2018 show, and raving about it like I discovered fire. There, done. TBH, for me, new is not always better. I buy clothes on a discount (a pretty heavy one!) because … Continue reading Why I love CEO Yoo Jin Woo AKA Hyun Bin’s style in Memories of Alhambra #k-dramas

Winter glow is possible. Here’s how I got my skin to behave in Paris

Crocodiles and me have one thing in common, dry-as-a-bone kinda skin. That scaly, wrung-out skin is not an easy one to battle with. Yet, I struggled with it every year especially in the winters. And every year, I would just take it easy, apply a thick moisturiser that feels like I added another layer onto my skin and call it a day. In the beginning … Continue reading Winter glow is possible. Here’s how I got my skin to behave in Paris

The definitive ranking of Villanelle’s looks from Killing Eve 

Life is never the same after you see an international assassin called Villanelle wearing a pink tulle dress in Killing Eve. Which means only one thing, fashion is never related to the job you do. I meet a lot of people who tell me “I can’t wear this in my job,” which, let’s be honest is 100% true half the time with office rules, raised … Continue reading The definitive ranking of Villanelle’s looks from Killing Eve 

My 30s Are Getting Scary, So I Took Help From A Friend Who Kicked Ass At It!

2018 is getting better than 2017 – of that I’m sure. Because I’m identifying issues that bugged me and am doing something about them. Not that I was a whiner, am a fixer. And worse, I’m a compulsive fixer. Most days, I am that beautiful ostrich, running helter-skelter in a big hurry and the first sign of distress, I hide under the sand and live … Continue reading My 30s Are Getting Scary, So I Took Help From A Friend Who Kicked Ass At It!

Signature color lipstick. Does anyone have those anymore or are we picking up a color and style that just came in trend on Instagram? See, that’s tricky. To own a hue, to have your own color, to never experiment – that’s the problem with signatures. They become boring after a while. But you see, I’m in my 30s, that means I must navigate this tight … Continue reading My Favourite 12 Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skintones. In Every Budget. In Every Shade.

The Five Places That Helped Me Find My Current Playlist!

Music is a big topic in our home. Not because my husband is embedded 6-feet into it. But because it’s really not something I know much about – so I get by with a little help from him. While my husband can rattle off his favorite genres and artists, I look for a nice beat, a stylish artist and a sound that sticks with me. … Continue reading The Five Places That Helped Me Find My Current Playlist!

Would You Wear Taant? Meet Bhomra, My Summer Fix!

I’ve known Sriparna Ray Sengupta aka Chipi for years now. She’s a friend of a friend and when often bumped into each other at malls, she always gave me that beaming smile and that tight hug. We connected in our respective jobs and admired each other from afar. And now, she is back again in my realm with a label of her own called Bhomra Design … Continue reading Would You Wear Taant?
