The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters. –Audrey Hepburn Sitting at work and trying to crack up the mundane life that we all live now, I was just day-dreaming about the days gone by. The days when fun was all that mattered. When we were kids who just liked to have fun and stay HAPPY! Feeling high and nostalgic, I resumed my work..when an email poped up with the subject ‘Dove invites you to play with your hair on 11th May 2014′. The #DOVEPLAY Invite De ja vu? Well, everything about this invite seemed exciting except for the part that it was happening in Mumbai; while I put up in Delhi. With disappointment I replied back to the mail saying : And I told my self “I so wish to have a mini holiday right now.Sigh!” When I got a reply back saying : Was I dreaming or what? One simple wish…. and it was granted? I happily agreed to be a part of this playful meet. At night, I sat down and went through the invite details. One thing that crossed my mind was that this event will be organized in association with Indiblogger. Now Indiblogger meets have always been so much fun. Which is why I was pretty sure that this one is going to be awesome as well. But this event was going to be different. Being a regional meet so far, this one was inviting few female bloggers from other major cities of India as well! The next level of Indiblogger meets eh?

Shopping is every girl’s addiction. Period! While men think that shopping is leisure for us, it’s no nirvana as it seems to be.

ZA True White Day Cream {Beauty}

May 16, 2014
copy2.jpg

We are all familiar with Shiseido, aren’t we? And when I heard that they are launching a special skin care line called ‘ZA’, I had to scribble down some beauty notes. Personally, I am not that big on beauty products. But skin care is something I am bound to obey and follow up. When I was approached to review a ‘Whitening cream’, I felt repelled. I am one of those people who will never ever promote skin fairness products. But when I went through the press note, this product didn’t seem like a ‘fairness cream’ but more of a helping you get-rid-of-blemishes cream. March-April-May is the crucial spring/summer time when your skin goes berserk trying to adjust with the crazy weather. Not to forget, that this year Delhi has received quite an amount of unusual rains. My skin being a combination type usually becomes hard to manage in such seasons. In desperation, I gave into trying a lot of products and surprisingly Za turned out to be the winner!  My Experience The consistency might seem thick, but when you apply the cream on your face it dissolves in no time and does not leave behind a sticky skin issue. The cream is quite light and can be the perfect summer moisturizer (might vary from skin to skin). Likes Dissolves into the skin with ease Light on skin (even in harsh summers) Reduces blemishes Perfect moisturizer SPF20-PA++ (A must in summers) Broad jar for easy access Mild fragrance Stays on for 8-9 hours Dislikes Patience for at least a month to see the results. Blessing in disguise, but worth it! Availability in India. Rating Value for Money : 3.5/5 Quality : 4.5/5 Quantity : 4/5 Results : 4/5 Usage : 2 months approx. (daily application) About Za is a cosmetic brand …
