I make Hair contact before I make Eye contact. There is a reason behind it though, I am blessed with long and dense hair but they are quite rough, dull and unmanageable. Recently I had got keratin done to my hair but stayed not more than 4 months and my hair got back to the same as it was. Few months back in one of my F-boxx subscription i had received few products from Bliscent which is an Indian based personal care company.

India is rich in her history. Every City here has a bedtime story to tell you. In my recent visit to Udaipur, a long lost love story came alive. I am sure you all must have heard about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati which is based on the history of this city. Udaipur is known as Kashmir of Rajasthan and many people call this place as Venice of the east, but the most popular term is “City of Lakes”.

You see there is a difference between traveling and a vacation, exactly the difference between exploring and leisure. When I travel, it is more like exploring which is tiring but fun. Right from my first international trip to Thailand until my most recent to Goa, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, and Kota and of course the land of Bollywood. Every year has been more like learning in every means especially when it comes to packing. Planning in every stage is very important, then may that be your destination or even small but stressful packing. When I began with my first exploring experience and every year thereafter my packing skills have improved quite a bit (lol). Trust me, every year before packing I used to read dozens of blogs myself, but honestly, I learned it the hard way, and I call it experience.

Yes I know it is a trip and not migration, but over a period of time, I finally got the catch. Though I learned it hard way but thought of making your life a bit easier in case you are somewhat like me who has ‘I MAY NEED THIS’ disorder.

Yes, it is especially valid; Skin changes as your age go up!! I am in my late 20’s infacts in couple of months I will be giving farewell kisses to my past and shaking hands with 30… OMG!! I feel as though I am riding on a road where U-turn is impossible and riding ahead is not my decision, Sounds frightening, would it say it isn’t? I am certain huge numbers of us would be pretty much on similar streets. When we were youthful, we were rash, who cares state of mind, prepared to acknowledge any test… Those were the days!! Ahh!! Be that as it may, as we develop, we have a tendency to get more cognizant about ourselves, who cares transforms into I give it a second thought, and there are a bigger number of things to stress over other than difficulties.
Hey Guys, Ramadan Kareem!! Feeling Blessed to post my first post in this holy month!!

Butterflies, though they are counted under the insect category, but in my opinion they are one for the most beautiful and fashionable creatures in existence. The Color, the vibrancy and the patron on each butterfly is unique. Where on this earth do you think you will be able to witness such fabulous mortals under one roof? Dubai Butterfly Garden is one such place which is a home to almost 35,000 diverse species of butterflies.
The festival of forgiveness, forgetfulness, and fun, Holi is the most colorful festival which is celebrated widely in India. This festival has an ancient origin and celebrates the victory of ‘good’ over ‘bad’. I still remember some glimpse of my childhood celebrating this massive festival of color, rubbing Gulal which is a traditional name for colored powder and people cheering ‘Bura na mano Holi hai’ which means, Don’t mind, it’s Holi (literal meaning). Nowadays all the festivals have gone commercial in terms of celebration but In some parts of India, this festival is still celebrated traditionally with Thandai (traditional Indian drink), fried dumplings and sweets.
Makar Sankranti in Dubai!! Sounds Crazy right? But did you know, according to 2013 census report, 4,000,000, which is around 40% of the UAE’s total population are Indians? Well, now you know!! Makar Sankranti which is also known as Uttarayan is widely practiced in Gujarat and in some parts of India. ‘Makar = Capricorn & Sankranti = Transition’ signifies the season transition from winter to spring which also means a new beginning. ‘Uttarayan’ on the other hand means northern moment which signifies movement of the earth in the region north of the equator, thanks to Wikipedia for that information. Every year it falls on 14 of January which makes it the only Hindu festival with a fixed date every year.
It is not a typical life hack but I guess this post can be a great help for the people planning party this weekend and thinking what to serve. So here I am with a Recipe to help you!! Middle Eastern cuisine is quite a diverse one. Honestly many expats just like me are completely unaware of the dishes and its name… No seriously…. common guys!! I am from Mumbai, grown up eating Vada Pavs, Frankies and all the junk food you can think off. A few years ago when I moved to Dubai, I was introduced to Lebanese cuisine, at first, I just could not understand how am I suppose to eat this?

Vacation is all about exploring new places, culture, food and most of all beaches. YES!! I love to go places with beaches. After planning for Months and months we decided to go to Bali, it was our dream destination.Bali is one of the hottest tourists destinations in current times. Bali attracts above 3 million tourists every year, where the major belong to Australia, Japan & China. We had to cover a very long journey as we were flying from Dubai and we had a group back in Mumbai waiting for us to fly together. So in total, we must have spent around good 20 hours including layover time. Yes, long traveling hours makes you tired but the excitement keeps you on your toes.

Again we both are beach lovers so we decided to visit Phuket, Krabi first and then Pattaya & Bangkok.
