Beauty : Sexy Back – A No Show!

January 27, 2013

‘I wish I had opted for my hair removal!’ ( by Gillette Satin Care way!) What is the biggest turn off? When you invest months of devoted time for that perfect one day, and everything just falls apart? Well I had such a moment which not only ruined a memorable day for me, but opened my eyes to avoid such disasters in future. WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED? It was my best friends wedding, the one with whom I had shared kindergarten, schooling and tuitions. We had done a lot of day dreaming during school life, giggling and excited to grow up to live up that moment! Being the bridesmaid I got myself a semi backless lehenga made. Did religious rounds of all the shopping hubs of Delhi to perfect the look in every possible manner. And the D Day arrived. Excited as I can get, could not wait to flaunt that “sexy back”, not to forget I sweated hard in Aerobics classes to get that perfect back! THE DISASTER REASON : I was all set when the biggest mistake of my life happened following this conversation I had with a mutual friend : Friend : So, you wearing a semi-backless lehenga to her wedding? Me : Yeah! *Doing a joyful dance in my head* Friend : Hope you have done the necessary to get that sexy back right! Me : Wdya mean? (puzzled me) Friend : Well you know, get a wax done to remove any hair followed by moisturizing massage. Me : OMG! I quickly called up my local boutique and got the appointment for a back waxing treatment. THE DISASTER! The painful procedure of removing hair by waxing was surely troublesome, but ANYTHING for that perfect look! In my quick decision consciousness I forgot that there is something called “patch test” before …

Book Review – Pink or Black 2 by Tishaa

January 24, 2013

A while back Blogadda sent across this teenage drama novel for review purpose. Lots of pink, black and white on the cover page surely screams “Teenage Puppy Love/Teen Issues”. What does the back cover say? Tiana’s school year has just started and looks bleak already. Her boyfriend is concerned they ‘don’t connect anymore’, her best friends are being super nasty, her lunch group has been taken over by newcomers, and the final nail in the coffin : a blast from the past, whom she believed she had left behind forever, has moved to Hill View High. Will anything go right for Tiana as she juggles friends old and new, tries to stay in her teacher’s good books, and, most importantly, attempts to keep all the boys at bay while she figures out her own feelings? Find out in this funny yet moving sequel to the bestselling Pink or Black, as Tishaa brings alive all the high drama at high school with wit and understanding. My reading experience.. The story revolves around a teenage rich girl Tiana, who belongs to a reputed boarding school, has the hot dudes of the school falling in love with her, has a good reputation with teachers and belongs to the most famous group of the school. However this perfect life is not so perfect as the story unleashes high teenage drama in high school. From the beginning of the story I could think of a lot of Bollywood and Hollywood movies to relate this novel with. From Kuch Kuch Hota hai, Student of the Year to High School Musical. However this did not help me create an imaginary visualization of the whole scenario, since the characters and scene arrangement just does not look like an Indian boarding school scene to me. It comes as a strong contrast …
