This is my all time favorite dish. Whenever you are tired of having vegetables, surely try this dish to relish with Rice & Dal. Let’s jump straight to the recipe now. The best part is this is no water recipe 😉
💠Big Green Chilies
💠Red Chilli Powder
Wash n slit the green chilies. Now remove the seeds with the help of a spoon n make enough space for the filling. (Make sure the chilly isn’t cut fully as the filling will come out)
🌿Filling:- Grated Coconut, Coriander, Jeera, Red Chili Powder, Turmeric, Salt, Tamarind. Make fine paste of the above filling.
Now take the green chilies and add filling inside, garnish it wid some Sesame seeds. Take a nonstick pan add some oil and let it fry for sometime. After 5mins add lid to the pan so that the chilies become soft. Open the lid and keep frying the chilly well. Also make sure the filling is intact inside. Have these fried chilies with dal rice. They add flavor to the normal meal.
Hope u guys enjoy 😍 Do let me know in the comments section about this recipe ♥️
If you guys read my last post about Vaadi Herbals,I had ordered few products to trySlowly unboxing all of them in my review Please stay tuned for more updates on this blog!!Don't forget to hit the like button on our Facebook page
Product Name – Vaadi Herbals – Enticing Lemongrass Scrub Soap with Charcoal
The product claims :- To cleanse, detoxify & polish your skin. Anti-bacterial Lemongrass paired with activated Charcoal, draws impurities out of the skin; leaving it clean & healthy within. On the outside, the dead cells are scrubbed off; smoothing & adding glow!
My take on this Soap :- It is different one from the normal soaps. Has a strong fragrance, although after washing the face it doesn’t stay for long. My skin is a bit tricky to handle hence I faced issues with this soap. It is oily skin + acne-free + sensitive. I had small red rashes after using it on my face. Scrub part on the soap is harsh on skin so I would say please scrub softly as it might irritate the skin. It lathers well with enough foam but do not use scrub directly on face. Take some scrub on your palm & then use it on the face as per the skin type. The green side is lemongrass oil as per the color. I will opt this soap for some scrubbing on legs & hands. Will surely not use on the face, although it adds glow to one’s face. This is solely my take on the soap & might differ from person to person. Overall one can surely try this one as it herbal & not laden with any chemicals.
Does not dries the skin
Pleasant fragrance like a lemon
Not tested on animals & 100% chemical – free
Herbal Soap, Paraben-free & filled with essential oil
Fragrance for me was totally a thumbs down as I’m allergic to certain odor & strong fragrances
The fragrance on the soap doesn’t remain on your face for long time (It vanishes in like 2mins)
Scrub part is harsh, hence make sure to test first on the hands/legs
You can buy Vaadi products on their website or Nykaa app. Vaadi website has discounts & you will be valid for free shipping if you buy products worth Rs. 400 .
Please let us know in the reviews section about a new product you have used. I would love to hear from you guys!! Till the take care 🙂
The Face Shop – South Korea-based skincare and cosmetics manufacturer & retailer. While surfing, Nykaa app came across some offer for Buy 2 Get 1 Free Face Mask & I tried some masks. With this they had Buy 5 & get 5 free offer as well. Now let’s dig into what exactly are these & how do they work on our skin.
They have some 30+ face masks which focuses on working with skin by adding some natural elements & some extracts in their face sheet masks. Will soon add reviews for other 2 masks!!
Product Name:- The Solution – Pore Care Face Mask
If one checks the packet carefully, will see a name “Tannin” below on the left corner. After much research, I came across what exactly is this Tannin!!
“Tannins are naturally occurring compounds that exist inside grape skins, seeds and stems. The scientific word for these compounds is polyphenols. You experience the effect of tannins any time you drink a wine that creates a drying sensation in your mouth.”
If you want to try a trick that can help you recognize a tannin when you taste it, brew a cup of extra strong black tea. Tannins naturally occur in black tea and their characteristics emerge when the tea is brewed a few minutes longer than recommended. After brewing the tea, take a sip and you’ll immediately notice a slight bitterness in the middle of your tongue and a dryness in the front of your mouth – this is a tannin.
Reason for Choosing this Mask:- I have oily skin combination with sensitive, hence it becomes bit tricky while choosing products for me. However read alot about these & thought let’s go ahead with this
Price:- Rs 150 for 1 sheet mask (1 single use)
Now talking about “The Solution Face Mask” series they focus on certain issues related to skin.
Pore Care Face Mask– The serum containing Tannins helps reduce shine and provides a pore care solution to oily skin
Smoothing Solution Face Mask– The serum containing Black Willow Bark Extract provides an exfoliating solution to rough skin
Hydrating Solution Face Mask – A serum containing Hyaluronic Acid helps dry, thirsty skin lock in moisture
Soothing Solution Face Mask – The serum containing Madecassoside provides a soothing solution to sensitive skin
Brightening Solution Face Mask – The serum containing Pearl powder provides a brightening solution to dull skin
Nourishing Solution Face Mask– The serum containing Propolis provides a nourishing solution to exhausted skin
Wrinkle Solution Face Mask– The serum containing Peptides provides a wrinkle care solution
Firming Solution Face Mask– The serum containing Collagen provides a resilience solution to saggy skin
Moisturizing Solution Face Mask– The serum containing Ceramides provides a moisturizing solution to dry, rough skin
Radiance Solution Face Mask -The serum containing Vitamin C provides a radiance solution to lackluster skin
All the above are formulated without parabens.
Face Mask:- The mask is super-light & once you apply this sheet of weightless paper (Only 0.21 mm thin) you will feel nice cooling effect.
Procedure to use the Mask:-
Wash face and apply toner (Any regular toner, I usually use water)
Remove sheet from package and remove film on one side of sheet
Apply evenly and firmly to face
Remove sheet after 10 to 20 minutes and gently pat to promote absorption of remaining essence
If required massage with soft fingers on the face. Do not rub this gel on face as it might irritate the skin
Verdict on this Face Mask:- The mask is super soft & sticky. Sticky as in the gel in it makes it a bit sticky on face (No issues after you wash it off). I have prominent blackheads & whiteheads after a normal cleanup, the large open pores are visible. This particular sheet has a pretty pleasant fragrance which made me think twice for using it. I went ahead & opened the sheet after removing the white paper off the mask. The mask has a paper on it, you need to remove it softly & then apply the mask on the face for nice 20 mins & take a nap. This mask lets the perfect hydration on face leaving it a glow + matte effect. However this doesn’t last for a long time.
P.S. – Make sure you turn the sheet upside down as the gel might remain below during transit. I faced this issue, after using the pack it was noticed the gel was remaining inside the packet. I used the remaining gel inside to massage my face softly after the mask application time was over.
Super-light on face
Full of fragrance
Cools the face, leaving a nice cooling effect for sometime
Travel-friendly & easy to carry in any small pouch
Savior for last moment fix (For a undecided party to attend/ when you cannot manage parlor appointment & want something at home)
Affordable for one time use
Soothes the pores
Major drawback is the sticky gel which lasts until the whole session (However the mask is dipped in serum, so I feel it will be same with other masks as well. Not really sure about it)
Glow does not last for a long time. Maybe for 1 to 2 days
Does not work much on face pores to a large extent (The pores won’t shrink)
This particular sheet won’t provide much hydration to dry skin (Please check the above serum elements & skin issues before buying these online)
Have you tried any masks before?? Not used any? Go ahead to buy these super affordable ones if you miss to go to the parlor any time. Tell us in the reviews section about this review & some super creative ideas for the blog 🙂
You can buy these online on My Nykaa app or website.
I was a bit concerned with few products used in past and felt should shift to herbals. Ordered some goodies recently via Vaadi Herbals & will soon review those for you all readers 🙂

Super Hot Summers are here so we have issues when it comes to taking care of our most sensitive lips. These should be maintained well to get the best click in each pic 😛
Product Name:- Blueberry Lip Balm Active Bio-Repair Formula
Price :- Rs. 40 for 10 gm (Vaadi Website has some cool discounts & they offer this at Rs. 36 which is again budget friendly)
The fragrance is mild just like a blueberry ice-cream
It helps in soothing the lips & making them super soft
It is a thick balm and if applied as a base before using the lipstick this will surely work as a perfect lip primer
Works well for hours (I can assure the whole day but after 4 to 5 hrs it loses the shine, still helps in making the lips soft & pink)
The tub is leak proof & sturdy . This can be used while traveling as well
Works wonder on chapped lips (as per my personal experience)
Somehow I felt Vaadi should work on the tub & make it to balm tube . This can make it more hygienic as you need to dip your finger to apply on the lips (Tip- One can use a ear bud or brush to make it more clean)
This is solely a review on basis of the use & time. I’ve been using it since a week & I’m happy applying these in summers.
Stay tuned for more updates & subscribe us, else bookmark our website please.

Sharing the first set of simplest DIY’s to be tried at home. I’m in love with diy’s since beginning as they turn out magically awesome with super simple tricks and yes the satisfaction goes at it’s peak as its handmade, especially the paper and plastic diy’s These are easily available at home 🙂
Materials to be used:-
Old used Plastic Bottle
Hot Iron Base
Colorful or simple threads
So we start off with cutting the bottle’s last part to get a flowery shape. Now use a hot iron (not very hot) to just smoothen the edges for a fine flower shape. Use different soda coloured bottles like blue , white and green. Now paint the bottles with some acrylic paints +glitter pens (if you have a kid, this is super awesome way to make them love painting shapes). With a help of a burning incense stick make small holes to attach the threads/satin ribbons to the plastic ends.
This can be used to hang on big Christmas trees or any other tree in the garden
Use it as a hanging toy for your kids in the living room or their bedroom
Accordingly you can make 2 holes on single bottle end and make colorful wall hanging
It can be used to make a beautiful photo frame. E.g Cut small plastic end (Flower-like base) & make a flower design by placing 3 to 5 together & then paint them according to the theme and get it framed
Beautiful wind-chimes – Same as the above here you can use the upper half of the bottle for the get desired shapes for wind chimes(long/short)
For wind chimes same procedure can be followed with different theme. For eg. Tribal, Floral or Warli Print coloring can be done, here the end shouldn’t be too flat. Instead cut the top portions or the bottle in half
Use the upper portion and color them along with the lids
Now make a small hole so as to let a thread pass through the bottle
Paint different sized cut bottles and use the thread accordingly (long/short) depending upon the length of the wind-chime
You can also color the simple thread & add glitter effect by the glitter pens as per requirement
This can be hung with the help of a old CD. Color the CD with the same theme so that it camouflages the mirror part. Stick all the strings with fevicol or make holes & make knots on the top of the CD
Small Tip – Instead of coloring the bottle you can use colorful patterned Washi tapes available in the market
Snacky Plastic -Now store your share of favvy snack away from your siblings with this simple DIY. Use the lower base of the bottle. Decorate it with beads/mirrors/acrylic paints/threads/strong rope to stick to the bottle. Stick them & color the rope with some paints. Now you can use it to keep some sweets or snacks & hide it near your own shelf in the bedroom.
Cereal Stock storage – We use plastic bags which is a total no from my end. However instead of throwing them use it in a better way. To make them air tight like the containers, use the bottle lid and the remaining half just a bit below the lid . Tuck in the plastic store the cereal & cover that with the lid. Tadaa this makes it air-tight. Super-quick and best.
Stationery Stand – If you are a kind-of crafty, make sure this is kept on your desk. Super quick and gathers all attention on the board ♠ Cut the bottle in half & use it directly by using hot iron to make the surface smooth. Add some Washi tapes & stick them to make shapes on the bottle. You can color the bottles as well & decorate them with beads or sequins for your baby girl 🙂
Hello Guys!! Hope you all are doing fine & enjoying the weekend.
I’ve come back with amazing review about a special brand named “ECOBERRY” based in Bangalore
Will surely reveal the reason of being special in the end of this review so keep reading till the end.
I came across this brand & checked their website, now what made me purchase from them was something named Shikakai Shampoo Bar.
You all might think what is so different about it. I’ve been listening about the famous Shikakai Soap used for hair by grandma & MIL. It was a famous product
back then. To my surprise, the product was out of stock on Ecoberry!! I was curious to try something different & then the team introduced me with a
different soap bar named “ONION FENUGREEK SHAMPOO BAR”. I’ve been a reader since beginning (no books please) but yes to the online sites & references. Now I already knew
the fact that Fenugreek is best to cure dandruff & onions act amazing for hair growth this made me purchase the amazing soap bar. Two advantages in a single soap,
now that’s a beautiful deal said the curious shopper in me 😉. Being a blogger, I was curious to know about their products and inquired if they can send me
sample products. The team said yes & I received the much awaited goodie bag.
Well packed in just a box & the soap bars were all secure in a tight plastic sheet kept on a soft sponge with a small tube of happiness (lip balm ❤️). The packaging was Eco-friendly.
Products Received – ONION FENUGREEK ANTI-DANDRUFF SHAMPOO BAR (INR 200)
ARAPPU CONDITIONING HAIR WASH BAR (INR 175)
ALL-NATURAL PEPPERMINT LIP BALM (no idea as it was a sample product)
Shampoo Bar has ingredients which works on dandruff, itchy scalp & hair fall (to an extent). It contains all natural ingredients which makes it more beneficial for
the hair. However, I feel after washing with it makes my hair feel a bit dry & rough (maybe that’s because the ingredients are all natural) but it works best after
using the conditioner. Totally a must have product. No one can ever regret switching to natural methods & leaving those chemical-based shampoo behind.
ARAPPU CONDITIONING HAIR WASH BAR
Ingredients – Contains saponifed oils of Coconut, Soyabean, Rice bran, Palm & Castor. Essential fragrance oil too. Also contains natural ingredients like
Arappu (Natural Conditioning Agent)
Again this soap has all natural ingredients, no hint of chemical can be sensed in this too. It lathers quite well on hair.
Usage– Both the soaps can be directly used on wet hair. They have a different aroma altogether which one has never come across (I personally love it). I usually wet my hair & after few secs lather the shampoo bar on hand & then gently on hair. This helps me use the soap well. After using it on my hair for about 2 mins, I let it settle for some more mins & rinse it with water. Always make sure hot water can harm the hair strands so lukewarm would surely benefit you all. After this procedure, repeat the same with Arappu bar. Do not rub the soap on hair, this might leave the soap extracts on hair (although I haven’t done anything as such, but it could harm your hair if unwashed roughly) . Also note – If you are using natural ingredient product for the first time, it won’t benefit you in first use itself. Same goes with the soap, you will discover hair fall during this process but trust me it decreases as per the washes.
💞Manageable shampoo & conditioning bars as it works on frizz too
💞Fenugreek is the best ingredient used which works on dandruff & itchy scalp
💞My oily scalp was easily manageable with both soaps
💞Onion works for hair growth & I could see changes , a significant decrease in hairfall
💞The fragrance can be handled by sensitive nose too
💞Manages tangled hair too
💞Both the soap bars were amazing look-wise
💞You can literally feel the soft granules in onion soap (could be Rice Bran) & the softness of Arappu in the conditioning bar
💞The results on hair is amazing overall making it smooth & dandruff-free & no more itchy scalp.
📝I feel it makes the hair dry if not used the conditioning soap
📝Available online only (well that cannot be a con as such), they might be local in the required cities
📝After each use, the soap bar has to be dried else it might get wasted as it easily dissolves in water (not that quick but I could see the natural color & small
particles coming off after each wash if kept on the wet floor) so need to be careful. After the soaps are used make sure they are dried. (This is been notified
on their soap list too)
📝No significant fragrance of the soaps was left on my hair after the wash, in fact I just felt a bit natural. This cannot be a major con but I usually love the fragrance that lingers after the hair wash. ❤️❤️All these cannot be cons for others as this is my personal view❤️❤️
P.S. For better results do not switch to chemical-based shampoos, using natural products would be tiresome at times. But trust me the results are outstanding as it takes time to work.
Please check the below amazing results after application on the soap bars. This is my 1st time application of both soap bars.l
Last but not the least my favorite tub of happiness was the green lip balm from the goodies . Lovely green color which was so appealing 💚
Product has all ingredients which will help your chapped lips in turning them normal pink 💞
💋 Works on chapped lips
💋 Makes them super soft
💋 I like the bubble gum like fragrance (The team informed me it’s Peppermint Oil)
💋 Very lightly tinted (Personally opinion)
💋 Makes the lips pink
🙈 I feel the tub is quite unhygienic, would prefer a tube. However, it’s the best because summers can melt the balm placed on tube but using tub makes it secure too. (Not really a con)
🙈 Only if you are consistent in applying it, the lips will remain healthy
🙈 Remains for only 2 to 3 hrs (But guess what you can re-apply this one as it has no hint of chemicals, artificial fragrances or preservatives in it)
♥️Let’s break the silence now. Well the mastermind in making this brand is a dentist & two engineers. So you can totally rely in terms of safety. Also they have no abrasive chemicals used, nor do they test on animals. Since they belong to scientific backgrounds, it makes them easier to understand science & nature well, with off-course a detailed research. Excited to try their few more products in future♥️

This is my recent favorite. Recent as in I fell in ❤️ with this one just few hrs ago. It’s the best diary I’ve ever seen. Thnku @matrikas_stationery for this beautiful planned series for the bloggers 😍😍💃 I CHOOSE TO DREAM ALWAYS 💃
Best thought over each concept inside. Waiting to pen down on this beauty 🌸 The thing which attracted me first after opening it was the firm cover. I mean I’ve seen diaries whose covers are easily torn off quickly. This is quite sturdy. If you want to wish ur loved one a surprise then plan this unique diary. I will soon review the uniqueness of this product to u all. Till then enjoy the pics ❤️
Did u buy urs? Temme what did you choose in the comments section
Hope you all are enjoying Friday!! It was a tiring week for me 😉 Finally thought of writing something which me and my sister used for pimples. We all face those awkward zit days each month during some or the other phase. How do you combat such issues?? I have tried something handy & wanted to share my take on it with my viewers.
Product Claims – A purifying pack that helps to regulate excess oil secretion, clean clogged pores & prevents the recurrence of
pimples. Neem, well-known for its purifying and anti-bacterial properties, helps in controlling acne & pimples & their recurrence.
Combined with Turmeric, it helps in control acne-causing bacteria. Fuller’s Earth (Multani Mitti) cools & soothes the skin, improving
skin texture & leaving you with clear, problem-free skin.
🌿Azadirachta indica (Neem, Nimba)
🌿Panka (Fuller’s earth, Multani Mitti)
🌿Curcuma longa (Turmeric, Haridra)
(Full ingredients list not mentioned)
The package is quite sturdy & leakage-proof & can be used while traveling. This is a thick green liquid pack. Easily applicable as no need to use water
Usage Tips –
❄️ Wash your face well with plain water, use a towel to pat dry
❄️Now apply on affected areas (Pimples or blemishes)
❄️Else apply on the whole face
❄️Keep this for 20 mins & now softly scrub in circular motion (the granules are not at all harsh) finally wash with plain water.
❄️One alternate way can also be applying on affected area in night this helps to soothe the irritation
🌻Fades the blemishes – Multani mitti in this lightens the skin & blemishes
🌻Controls acne which might occur in future- Neem works in this case we all know that by now 🌻Soft on skin – The granules are superb for a scrub too
🌻Lessens Skin Irritation & Red Rashes if any due to pimples
🌻It helps in shrinking the big skin pores
🌻Adds instant glow to skin with smoothness
🌻Helps in reducing the oil on face
🌶️At first the tingling effect made me feel awkward but, ultimately soothes the skin. This might bother few of them
🌶️Dry skin people should apply a light moisturizer after using this
🌶️The squeezy bottle after few applications doesn’t work , I find it hard to squeeze
🌶️As mentioned above, they have not mentioned full list hence I can sense they use Parabens in it.
Note :- If you have super oily skin & severe acne issues please consult a dermatologist. Do not blindly use this, also would recommend to try on a small pimple
for normal issues. This can be a savior for last moment acne for skin irritation due to acne, but takes time in healing.
Have you guys tried this one? If yes please share your view in the comment section !!
Happy Friday to all 🌧️
Hello peeps. Hope you all are doing fine. I’m sure we all face time management issues when it comes to work , personal life & our passion. I feel an urge to share some methodologies aand techniques to follow your passion. I faced hard time while shifting from normal routine job to start a blog. I made up my mind of writing and explaining products & experimenting new stuff and spreading awareness but before this I had no knowledge about blogging. I did waste some time & finally started well!!
Let’s jolt down few important points to become pro in such cases :-
❤️ Planning the topic & content – Be clear to plan a certain topic for your blog post. Don’t switch the topics always, as this might make me confuse & distract you from ideas regarding a particular topic. For e.g. If you plan to write something about a specific brand, don’t switch to a different brand & start comparing both. Remember every individual handmade product requires lots of patience, research & skilled team who works efficiently in raising the product & setting a limit to certain issues like acne or sun tan. After the topic/product/service is planned please research about the specific brand. Get to know the ingredients listed on the tube or jar, if anything is unknown you can always Google it, that really helps you in understanding the importance of a certain base ingredient. Remember half knowledge is always dangerous hence always keep brief a information handy to explain.
❤️ Written Content – Everytime you plan head towards the write-up part. If you are a mom or a part time blogger use laptop or let’s say the Smartphone note section/wordpad this helps you to note down the content well & even if you leave in between you will get a link to what is going in your mind. Avoid written notes for such work as it might increase your work & offcourse paper wastage 😦 Keep paper safe for all topics & to-do lists. P.s. I usually use notepad on laptop or desktop for the inside content & my Smartphone for the topics. When I’m travelling & have issues in battery consumption of phone I note down my topics pending on a sheet of paper
❤️ Work Management – If you are at work let’s say from 10am to 6pm dedicate some time for you blog/insta profile/Facebook page during lunch. This will keep you on track with the audience involved on your social media sites. You will always have an idea of who liked/followed/commented. If it’s a mom blogger or a housewife please get minimum 1hr time for the above things mentioned
❤️ Motivation & Comparison – We all know every indivdual thinks different, so please stop comparing yourselves with your co-bloggers. Each one is special & has a different in potraying things to their set of audience. Not to forget everyone started from a Zero to a certain followers/likes/comments. Don’t get disheartened by any such concerns. Always remember each one of us have started at a certain phase or time. Like I’m a newbie, there are many followers who have crossed 1k followers or has active audience on Facebook/Blog. Keep up the good work & always strive to work hard. Stand still, face all odds & conquer 😊
❤️ Funny/Interesting Facts or Situations – If you want to connect more closely with your audience start sharing some funny incidents or postshappening around. Any interesting fact you come across please spread awareness, never keep it for yourself. We are here to spread our set of knowledge so always be ready for positive & constructive approach (Never assume negative, the comment or review should always be taken positively or a in a constructive way. This helps you grow & let’s you keep you calm.
❤️ Constructive Feedback for Product or a blogger – If you buy a certain product and get allergic never mention that directly, there might be certain aspects to the same.For e.g. when was the application, If it was mentioned apply 15 mins prior you step out of the house & we tend to apply it during travel, we try something during
the peak phase i.e. the 5 days menstrual cycle this can make you feel allergic to a certain ingredient present inside & can irritate you skin (offcourse each lady has different issues during these days so I would say better let’s not experiment new things during this time). Also if the time limit for a certain mask is just 1min & we feel it’s too less & apply it for some more time. This can again harm our skin with red rashes. We are at last humans & make mistakes hence let’s be more careful & help the brand in a better way by giving constructive review. Now let’s talk about the blogger part, when we come across a certain post by a blogger where he/she isn’t
aware about a particular thing or promoting something different do not post a negative comment as this might go against the blogger & it will ultimately hamper the audience linked with the blog/insta handle/facebook page. Let’s email the issue to our fellow blogger or DM if you are in contact with him/her directly instead of
posting it on social media sites as this might discourage the blogger directly & we don’t want that to happen
❤️ Editing & Copyrighting – We tend to publish raw photos clicked by the phone on our blogs. Please wait, download some picture editing apps & edit the pics with some taglines, smileys and borders with a copyright of your blog logo or brand name. This helps you keep the authencicity of the pictures & they can be shared with offcourse your logo used so that is a plus time when a person can directly check your blog & follow the posts.
❤️ Comments & Likes – Respond the likes & comments, this makes the audience understand there is a response & we can follow this site for latest updates. For e.g. If you visit a fabric store & ask certain specifications to the sales guy but he does not respond the way you want to, you will never visit the store even if they have variety or offers. So you are the first face to your Blog/Insta handle/Facebook Page never disappoint the audience, awlays keep your calm & responding.
❤️ Start & End – Start you topic in a such a way that the reader instantly feels the content is amazing like linking a certain situation or case with it. For e.g. I’ve been using many products but never got such amazing results after using this for my hair. Note :- Such statements makes the reader urge to read the content &
ultimately comment on the blog post. The end should always be welcoming like stay tuned for some more amazing products knowledge & discounts. This will also help you
in gaining a lifetime follower
❤️ Collaborations & Sample Product – Always enquire with specific brands if they are open for collab (paid/unpaid). Don’t just blindly buy the products on their site like a random buyer. Always ask if they also deliver sample prodcuts for the same. There are many brands who send certain sample products after buying products in
a particular criteria. Some brands only send samples to who have followers above 1k, but also offer amazing discounts to bloggers. Remember do not get disheartened if you have less followers/like there is always a positive side each day. Start working hard in gaining more followers
❤️ Keywords Filters – For social media, keywords are important they usually show up in the search results hence, first categorize your blog post e.g. Product review /skincare & add some tags so that the certain post comes up in search result after the keyword search.
❤️ Public Profile and Boost posts – If you need followers make sure your profile is set to Public on Instagram. Use common hashtags and get more followers. Start boosting particular posts on Facebook if required, it is off-course paid.
❤️ Home-made Diy’s – Start sharing your home-made diy’s for face, skin or hair. Give detailed explanation as to who will it suit & how effective it would be for a certain issue. This helps the audience try something readily available at home quickly.
❤️ Suggestions – Keep asking for suggestions & be open for any type of suggestion & work on it accordingly.
Stay tuned for such update. Please subscribe my blog, follow my Insta profile & like my Facebook page too. Links are provided in the contact us page. Please spread the word & share this if
possible. This simple tricks might help a newbie blogger.
Hope this post helps the bloggers to work with ease in some way or the other. Although, I’m not a pro in blog posts but thought of writing something productive for
my fellow bloggers. Happy Blogging to all 😍 Lots of Love ❤️❤️

Shampoo Ingredients :-
Safe surfocants invigorated with Organic herbals, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic essential oils of Tea Tree, Vitamin E, Occimum & natural conditioner. Contains No Harsh Chemicals, No Alcohol, No Animal Products or Sulphates. (It makes me a bit curious to know more about the safe surfocants used in the shampoo as the bottle states shelf life is 2yrs & I wonder how does it justify as this is purely a no preservative shampoo, maybe some magical formula is been used using the safe surfocants. This is just the curious mind inside me :p Although you can totally rely on these products as they are USDA organic certified)
Quantity available with Price :- 100gm for INR 126 & 200gm for INR 246
Product Claim :- Containing active plant extracts and beautiful essential oils such as that of Tea Tree & Ocimum, this is great and gently on the scalp without stripping the natural oils of the hair & scalp. This nourishing and effective cleanser is also a great hair therapy.
My Take on this product :-
For the ones who are unaware of Ocimum it is nothing but Tulsi or Holy Basil. It stimulates hair follicles, increases scalp circulation and promotes hair growth. The magnesium in basil helps protect hair from breakage, and its anti-inflammatory properties help soothe the roots. This Herbal Shampoo has a divine fragrance, nothing too catchy but a subtle aroma lingers for almost 2 days on your hair leaving them tangle-free. It is absolutely . This shampoo casts the summer spell!! Totally a must-have for each one of us. This was actually bought for my husband as website says Men Shampoo in the categories. Although I personally can use this as it has no chemicals so you can wash your hair guilt-free 😛

Have any of you tried any Bon Organic goodie?? If not buy one from their website
Have been using the Glamego box goodies. This one is my super favorite in summers. Sweet and lively mist 😍

Product Name – Natural Bath & Body – Body Mist Variant – Beautiful Day (I had an eye on their wild wonder mist 😉)
Product Claims – Our Beautiful Day Body Mist manages to captures a hint of happiness and a dash of sunshine in a bottle! Perk up your mornings with a fragrant burst that blends floral top notes with nuances of fresh zesty-ness. An infusion of Organic Vegetable glycerine makes this Body Mist gentle on the skin. This gorgeous aromatic expression completely envelops you, to ensure that you’ll have your sunny side up, all day long!
Spritz it on after bathing or showering. Top up throughout the day.
Must try product !! No Alcohol & Cruelty-free. Using deodorants filled with strong alcohol & fragrance can make you feel awesome whole day but to some extent might affect the skin (underarms or any body part after direct application). I totally love this one sent via the Glamego April Subscription box. This is a must have during summers. Especially the mild fragrance makes this a best part of your bag!!
🌸 Paraben Free 🌸 Sulfate Free 🌸 No Harmful Colorants 🌸 No Preservatives 🌸 Petrolatum Free 🌸 No Harsh Chemicals 🌸 Does not irritates your skin 🌸 Totally a recommendable spray for people who sweat during workouts or dance 🌸 Transparency in the product & the packaging too as it gives you a clear picture of how much is been used till date
💮 No cons as such but the fragrance vanishes in 2hrs so you need to spray it again which is not really a con, as you can spray this back without hesitation because it is ultimately a water-based mist
💮 Not travel friendly (the lid opens easily)
Will surely order it again 💃 This seems to be a sample as mentioned on the bottle but it will last me for the scorching summers in Konkan as it is 200ml bottle.
Website states INR 325 for a 200ml spray mist which is totally worth it I feel!! You can buy this from their website or Instagram Page
They have free shipping for orders above INR 499|COD available for selected cities|Returns accepted within 14 days.
Reviews are kinda boring always for the products. So I thought let’s spend some time in making some amazing DIY product for face & hair. Many of us travel outside during day in the scorching heat. Not always we tie our face with scarfs. We tend to expose the skin & hair directly & this can be harmful for us. I recently made a refreshing rose water at home to beat the heat 🌞
Summer hack – Home made Rose water 🌹
Now this is the best water which helps in summer or any other season. It maintains the skin’s pH balance and controls oil on your face. This is also used to cure dandruff to an extent.
I had a Lakme toner, had bought this one long back and as usual didn’t use this, as it had a strong fragrance which irritated me a lot. Wanted to re-use this cute spray bottle for something hence made home made rose water.
Procedure – Boil some water accordingly heat it for nice 10 mins. Turn off the gas. Wash the rose petals (fresh will be great for this). Now add the washed petals to the hot water, now let this settle for good 20 mins and when it cools down. Separate the water with a strainer and fill in the spray bottle. Use this on your face directly or add some via a cotton ball. Before hair wash, spray some on the hair roots n softly dab or massage and wash off the hair or can be used after shampooing if you guys have oily or frizzy hair ❤️.
❇️ One more easy method for oily skin. Rose water + Glycerin = 2:1 ratio use this on skin to fade scars and glow your skin
P. S. If you want add some gulab jal or synthetic fragrance or color. I basically don’t use anything. I simply make this and store this to the fridge. This makes it’s shelf life pretty long.

All their products are free from Parabens, SLS, SLES, & Petroleum derivatives and are a blend of rare Indian herbs and essential oils.

One Word – Totally recommendable product 🙂

Both men & women can benefit from this highly effective shampoo.
Ingredients – Plantapon SF*, Rose Water (Rosa Damascena), Dehyton KT* (Cocoamidopropyl Beatine), Lamesoft PO 65* (Coco Glucoside & Glyceryl Oleate), Olivem 400®, Bhringraj Ext.

(I personally checked the different ingredients on this one & found no chemical background at all. For e.g. the Plantapon SF* is nothing but a surfactant which is Sulphate-free & mostly used in beauty products. It is an exceptionally mild, ready-to-use surfactant base that is free of alkyl sulfates, betaine, ethylene oxide and preservatives, yet offers outstanding performance. The blend only needs water, fragrance and preservation to be the basis of a gentle skin cleansing system.)

This rinse off mild hair conditioner keeps the hair soft & tangle free. It lifts & separates the hair leaving it soft, shiny & full of volume. Perfect for oily, normal or dry hair. Gentle enough to use on permed, color-treated, bleached or highlighted hair.
My take on these products :- I guess these were sample products made for the subscription box, however they were the best shampoo I’ve ever come across for people who have issues regarding hairfall. As this was a sample product, still I used it for nice 3 times & can be used once for shampoo & conditioner would last for approx 3 more washes. My experience for first wash was not too amazing 😦 Used the shampoo & conditioner , in the evening the oily scalp was prominent (P.s. I had not used any hair serum just to check the efficiency of the above products. Second wash during shampooing disappointed me again as had hair breakage but to surprise all this when in evening I combed my hair there was a magic (less hair fall) . Very happy with this result (second use also I din’t opt for a hair serum) . Happy with the third wash too 🙂 Super Oily scalp was not managed alot (P.s. I sweat a lot here in Konkan, miss Pune like anything) but this will surely be a plus point for the ones who are tired of hair fall issues. I won’t be using this in summers but surely this will be in my bag for other seasons
Sample Price –
Shampoo for : INR 65 for the Shampoo (50ml) & INR 55 for the Conditioner (50ml)
