Hey everyone!
It is that time of the year winters will be coming and we don’t realize the harmful effects winters can cause to our skin. There are people who apply moisturizer after a dry patch appear on the skin or when the lips chaps and then there are people who take very good care of the skin irrespective of climate, hectic lifestyle or time constraint. The difference among them is the one who love their skin takes care of it.Beautiful skin is the reflection of our inner happiness.

It is very important to moisturize the skin because we eat food for energy similarly our skin requires moisture to stay healthy. A moisturizer gives hydration, suppleness and natural glow to the skin. Due to lack of moisture our skin looses the natural bridge to hold and fine lines start appearing. One
thing to note is that moisture cannot be hold for longer time so you need to feed moisture on regular intervals. Our skin naturally has water reservoirs to provide moisture to skin. Due to stress, hectic lifestyle and improper care these water reservoirs start depleting. A good moisturizer contains ingredients to provide moisture, form barrier to prevent moisture loss, boost the water
reservoirs of the skin.

Fastrack Monochrome Multifunction Watch Review

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday I watched the movie LUCY and it opened up a meaningful message to me . How time gives meaning to our existence. Indeed time is precious so then what have we done in this life. I have seen people who effortlessly manage time doing n number of things whereas there are some who do nothing yet crib about having less time. My mother in law can do multitasking by good time management like doing house chores, looking after the kids (bathing, feeding food, prepare them for school etc.), grocery shopping, cooking etc. but my peon fails to do sometime filing because of less time. If we schedule our work according to its priority and duration and organizing over lapping work by multi tasking, I guess we are sorted.

Now lets get into the crux of my blog

One of my friend got this birthday gift from her hubby and I got jealous not because my husband don’t gift me but this watch is awesome! I have a collection of watches but this piece is unique.

In this year I preferred  watches with swarovski or diamond bezel and large dials but this watch  stood with it’s simplicity yet elegant style.

IMG_20150630_185433

 

Review:-

As I told you earlier the watch is very much trendy and for casual wear but it is also elegant and chic so you can wear for daily wear, office and for parties also. Being from Fastrack, house of Titan you are rest assured of its quality and durability. Silver strap are in vogue otherwise you can opt for leather strap also. Dial width is 37 mm so perfectly embracing the wrist. There is an option of black or white for the dial as well. Fastrack has targeted more towards college going and trendy styles of dial but this model is beautiful.

But only one thing which I thought should be included was the date facility. Overall paisa vasool watch.

Have a nice TIME :0

Proud Being Woman

Proud Being Woman!

Hey Everyone
I came into this world, was pampered and loved by all. All my wishes were fulfilled by my parents be it Barbie doll, Expensive clothes, Delicious food, Casio keyboard, toys etc. I was enjoying life to the fullest with family and friends. Until one day I came from school and as I went to freshen up in the washroom, I was shocked to see blood. I was frightened, wondering I got major illness or have hurt while playing. I was blank for a moment. I peeped from the door, called my mother and told her my state. Very coolly she went and gave me to use a pad. I asked her what was it? She said it is what girls get for every month for 4-5 days. Clueless and shocked all my happiness waded in thin air. I now hated to be born as a girl. The days passed by in the depression. Thankfully, in my school there was a lecture on sex education which benefited me. So what is the fuss?
Let’s understand what Periods are scientifically.
A woman produces egg from the ovaries every month. Every month or so, the uterus lining gets thicker to prepare for a fertilized egg if the woman becomes pregnant. If the egg doesn’t get fertilized, that lining is released from the body as blood through the vagina. This tissue comes from the uterus, which is where a baby (fetus) can develop in the female body. A period is when a woman’s body releases this tissue it no longer needs. This monthly process is called menstruation or a period.

So you know how periods are important for a girl. Periods are no longer a shame. . After I started using Whisper, I went to college, joined NCC and trust me, I did everything from attending trekking camps, rifle shooting, cross country, drills even in those 5 days without any hesitation. Recently, the brand shared some samples of their new improved product, Whisper Ultra clean. As a blogger who writes solely basis experience and strict background check, I waited to see how and why it’s unique. To explain “how”, it was a comfortable experience to wear for those long hours when I was on the run during periods. Its strong fragrance kept me covered and confident. Besides, its length and 1000 holes that give it its super absorbing power, makes this product 5 times more effective than any regular sanitary napkin. Quite impressive, ain’t it?

For “why”, due credit goes to Whisper who has researched to give women a comfort during periods by launching products as per the needs. Whisper ultra clean gives 100% wet less and odor protection. 1000 suction holes in dry weave sheet give a fresh feeling for the entire day. Girls you not only own 25 days in a month, but with Whisper power you also #OwnThose5Days.
This post is neither about men vs woman, nor about women’s superiority. It is about respect. A girl goes through mood swings during periods, sometimes bear the pain (cramps) but she accepts it with courage. Today I am a working woman doing all the chores of life. I have no regret to be born as a girl in fact, I am proud being woman.

P.S. Own Those 5 Days

Hey Lovelies

Last week I attended P & G Whisper Event to celebrate the launch of The All New Whisper Ultra with the versatile bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin, along with reputed gynecologist Dr. Nandita Palshatkar and Whisper R & D expert Mr. Chetan Kotyalkar. It was a wonderful afternoon hangout hosted by Stand-up comedian Aditi Mittal. She made sure to keep the environment fun & lively whilst speaking about sensitive issues like menstrual cycle & female hygiene to avoid any awkwardness. It was also very interesting to know Kalki Koechlin’s perspective on those five days and how she dealt with it then and her tips to own those five days now.  We also got an opportunity to interact with Gynecologist Dr. Nandita Palshetkar & Whisper’s R&D expert Chetan Kotyalkar. Chetan Kotyalkar also demonstrated how Whisper ultra clean is better than the regular pads in the market.

IMG_20151219_133157

The event was to break the myths of Periods and motivating enough for you to #OwnThose5Days.

Myths – Do not touch the pickle.

Well there is no harm in touching the pickle as there is no scientific reason to not touch.

Myth-Heavy exercise increases flow.

We can do exercise even in our periods like Zumba.

IMG_20151219_121014

Taking Care:

  • Check your period cycle so you know when your next period is.
  • Always keep a pad handy.
  • Since during periods we lose lot of water, we need to hydrate our body sufficiently.
  • During periods you lose water so hydrate well, at least 6-7 glasses of water.
  • Eat lots of fruits and green vegetables to maintain proper diet.
  • During periods we have PMS- Pre menstrual syndrome which creates mood swings.
  • So control your moods and don’t panic.
  • Distress yourself by listening to music or any recreational outing.
  • Don’t wear tight fitting clothes to avoid discomfort.
  • Accept period as natural phenomena and deal with it carefully.
  • Maintain proper hygiene.

It was demoed to us how Whisper’s newly launched the all new ultra clean sanitary pad gives you 5 times more protection than ordinary pads. 100% wet less and odorless protection. Whisper Ultra Clean range of pads is longer than ordinary pads to give you all day long lasting protection.

The restrictions like No running, no jumping, no wishes, no going out, no stretching your leg are no more to follow. These are norms that a woman on her period believes. but in fact, these are nothing but precautions to avoid pad failure. these rules stay true for an ordinary pad that may leak, shift, or bunch. That’s why you need a superior period protection.

Whisper Ultra Clean helps you break these norms and ensures that nothing can hold you back. Not even your period. Its unique design with superior protection locks up to 100% wetness and even locks odour. So be unstoppable. Multiply success. Follow your passion. Cross over to the happier side of life. With Whisper Ultra Clean by your side, kadam badhaye jaa!

So now just don’t enjoy 25 days of a month.

Empowering India with Wind Energy!

Empowering India with Wind Energy!

Hey Friends,

As I was reading and hearing about Chennai floods I was wondering why there are areas people are suffering from droughts and then there people who are devastated by floods.Why there is such imbalance? We have given Nature a place of a Mother, who cares, give food and water. But when we see the angry avatar of  Mother nature we realize that pollution, deforestation, global warming etc. are causing the imbalance.

Global warming is caused by Carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel burning power plants. Our increasing need for electricity from coal-burning power plants releases enormous amounts of carbon dioxide into atmosphere. Everyday more electric gadgets flood the market, and without widespread alternative energy sources, we are highly dependent on burning coal for our personal and commercial electrical supply. Thankfully Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association has launched Windergy India.  Lets understand Wind Energy in details:

WIND ENERGY

images

India being one of the heavily populated countries, the electricity requirement is increasing to meet the demands. Electricity sector also being privatized the private players are finding it very difficult to provide electricity at minimum cost. As we compare the cost per unit of the electricity has increased after privatization of power sector, people who were paying 250 to 350 rupees in 1995-96 are paying 1500 to 1600 rupees in current situation. The rising demand of power generation is taking a heavy toll not only on pockets of consumer but also on coal deposits. Wind energy will play an important role in meeting the power demands of this growing population. Many projects have started in various states in producing clean and renewable source of energy. Going green seems to be the mantra of this Era and now even temples seem to have joined the campaign. Famed temple Balaji tirupathi are also using this energy for lighting the temple and temple vicinity thereby contribution in reducing global warming. India has the fifth largest domestic supply of coal in the world, but India’s own coal sector is rife with corruption, weak policies, and poor management. Essentially 80 percent of domestic coal production is managed by the government-controlled Coal India, which is hampered by problems. Since the domestic coal market has become so constrained, international imports of coal have been increasing significantly and coal imports are considerably more expensive than coal from Indian domestic sources. India still relies on coal for the bulk of its electricity, but coal is becoming more expensive. India is also a water-constrained country, and coal power generation uses a lot of water — the vast majority of water that goes for industrial sources in India goes to thermal power generation. Some coal plants have been closed down due to water shortages, and some of the big blackouts in India have been found to come from water shortages at coal plants. Water usage is also expected to grow in India, so power generation technologies that use less water could have an advantage. While the U.S. is experiencing a natural gas boom from cheap shale resources, India actually has a very small amount of natural gas. With problems with domestic coal, a lack of natural gas reserves and a push back on nuclear power, wind power offers one of the best options for India to add electricity. There’s a peak deficit of 12 GW of electricity right now in the country. India wants to add 100 GW of power generation over the next five years, and that will be made up by mostly coal and clean power.

Wind energy is friendly to the surrounding environment, as no fossil fuels are burnt to generate electricity from wind energy. Wind turbines take up less space than the average power station. Windmills only have to occupy a few square meters for the base; this allows the land around the turbine to be used for many purposes, for example agriculture. Newer technologies are making the extraction of wind energy much more efficient. The wind is free, and we are able to cash in on this free source of energy. Wind turbines are a great resource to generate energy in remote locations, such as mountain communities and remote countryside. Wind turbines can be a range of different sizes in order to support varying population levels.

Another advantage of wind energy is that when combined with solar electricity, this energy source is great for developed and developing countries to provide a steady, reliable supply of electricity. The Indian wind energy sector has an installed capacity of 23,439.26 MW (as on March 31, 2015). In terms of wind power installed capacity, India is ranked 5th in the World. Today India is a major player in the global wind energy market. The potential is far from exhausted.

Indian Wind Energy Association has estimated that with the current level of technology, the ‘on-shore’ potential for utilization of wind energy for electricity generation is of the order of 102 GW. The unexploited resource availability has the potential to sustain the growth of wind energy sector in India in the years to come. Wind energy costs have plummeted more than 90 percent since the early 1980’s and today renewable energy is lowering electric bills across the country by replacing more Costly electricity from dirty and inefficient fossil fuel plants.

Lets all support Windergy for a greener and safer earth!

After towel dry he applied the Moroccanoil Weightless mask all over the hair and with soothing massage of 30 mins washed my hair followed with blow dry and styling with moroccanoil root boost mousse. The hair treatment worked magic on my transforming my dull, stressed hair into shiny and smooth hair. Just loved the mesmerizing experience!

Review:

The Moroccan extra volume shampoo and conditioner are perfect solution for my hair, as my hair is fine, light coloured and dull with less volume. Moroccan oil shampoo gently cleansed my hair imparting freshness and life to my dull hair whereas the conditioner gave shine and easy manageability to the hair.

The products are expensive simply because it contains the original Argan oil and nutrients in luxurious formulation. Also after knowing the brands history and authenticity of the products my trust towards brand was build.

The products are available at Taj, Kromakay, Jean Claude biguine and well known salons simply because the brand wants people to have expert advice and guidance before one uses at home.

What I liked about the products is the formulation as it does not chemicals which are harmful to our hair and environment.

Oriflame The One Volume Blast Mascara Review

Oriflame The One Volume Blast Mascara Review

You don’t get Oriflame on the shelf, so by franchise, word of mouth and reviews you can decide on these products.

Oriflame is from a sufficient time period in the market so you can rely on their beauty products but mascara? Let’s check it out.

Appearance:-

The mascara comes in a pink colour packaging to give that young and trendy look. The bristles are thick and long to give the desired effect.

Price:-

Rs.529/- for 8ml.

Review:-

The One Volume Blast Mascara is fragrance free, gel creamy textured mascara. On application, it does not clump the lashes. Although the mascara is for volume It did not give enough volume in the first coat so I applied a second coat to give the desired volume to the lashes. The shelf life of the product is 6 months after opening the product which is a standard in all eye products. The lasting of the mascara on the eyes are upto 4-6 hrs. It is not a waterproof mascara so easy to remove. It is economical in price so definitely one can afford to try, you never know it can be your makeup companion.

Pros:-

  • Economical
  • Daily wear
  • Does not clump lashes
  • Reaches to each strand of lashes

Cons:-

  • Less voluminous
