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… Read More My recent skincare routine: Basics + hormonal acne + simple stuff
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.

Most days, I am that beautiful ostrich, running helter-skelter in a big hurry and the first… Read More 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… Read More My Favourite 12 Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skintones. In Every Budget. In Every Shade.
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.

We connected in our respective jobs and admired each other from afar. And now, she is back again in my… Read More Would You Wear Taant? Meet Bhomra, My Summer Fix!
My travel diaries: Everything on my travel here so I can relive it. That’s the plan! Picking up Porto to visit was really a random decision. Randomer than picking up an ice cream flavor on a dull day. We knew only two things about it – that Port wine was invented there and Claus Porto… Read More Tripping: 5 Things I Loved In Porto, Portugal
Sophisticated but down-to-earth – two opposites that hurl themselves with extreme, all-consuming force into a giant ball of beauty. That’s Raw Mango for me. Subtle but drenched in power.

My earliest memories of fashion and style weren’t glossy magazines. Yep, they were big in my teens + college years and I once got severely reprimanded for owning a Cosmopolitan. But that’s a story for another day. My earliest memories of fashion were made up of South-Indian heroines. Nope, not the fancy Vyjayantimala and Hema… Read More The South-Indian Star Look From The 80s Is Coming Back Big Time: We’re Loving Brand Latha!
This one’s a killer way to tell you what I buy, why I buy, what makes them work, what makes me waste some good monies on things that don’t need their due and ones that makes me go waaaw (that’s the South-Indian wow!). Hello, am a serial buyer of hipster-and-otherwise things and I plead guilty… Read More Weekly Vibes: Life-changers This Week!
I used to be crazy about silver. In college, it was all about that Fab India kurta and oodles of oxidised silver. Always dull, always antique-y and probably a bit cliched also. But we hardly had any options when we were growing up – not so much social media really and no Insta trends and… Read More Handcrafted: Quirksmith, The Label That Takes Silver On A Whimsical Flight!
