Monsoon is a beautiful season, when the hard-hitting sunrays are overpowered by dark clouds and soft showers. It might fill the town with puddles, yet it remains one of the favorite seasons among Indian people. It is exclusively considered the season of hot ‘pakodas’ and ‘chaats’. Unfortunately, I cannot include “Maggi” in this list since it got banned in Delhi. 

Though the most awaited season, it brings with itself many everyday troubles. This article would provide you with tips which can help you during rains and let you not consider this weather as your enemy ;)
So let’s begin :D

·                  During the season of monsoon, instead of using hair ties, opt for clutcher or a large hairclip. When your hair gets drenched in such weather then it would be easy enough to open them for air drying (without breaking them) and later you can clutch them back once dried. Another reason for this is, during monsoon, your hair are prone to breaking more than usual days. Thus, a hairclip is recommended rather than a hair tie.

·                  This tip is for those who go to colleges or work. People who travel on everyday basis should always keep a foldable umbrella in their bag since they might not be one of those who would scrutinize their eyes on weather forecast reports. Plus keep a plastic laminating folder or a plastic bag which you can use anytime to save a document, books or your mobile. (Those of you who are about to begin their colleges in late July; prefer to buy a leather bag rather than usual school bag, or if that then head for a water proof one.)

·                  Never ever step out of your house wearing shoes that cover up your toes. For monsoon, it is highly advisable to wear sandals which are open and can let your feet breathe even if you’ve splashed into a puddle (intentionally LOL). This would help you to stay away from feet infection, since monsoon is a season full of germs. Markets in Delhi and NCR regions are flooded (not with rain water) with plastic sandals which are specially made for rainy season. These can be easily purchased for RS 200 and are high on style. 

·                  Avoid all those sheer, polyester clothes for this season. Firstly, it would cause you embarrassment if you get drenched. Secondly, once your top (sheer/polyester material clothe) gets soaked, it would take a hell lot of time to air dry. Lastly, since monsoon is also a season of humidity, it would cause you to sweat and will build up a stagnant smell. For all these troubles, cotton comes to rescue :)

·                  Always carry an extra top/shirt/tee in your bag so that you can change your clothes immediately after you got drenched. This would minimize your chances in catching a cold. Please remember, try to avoid white during this season.

·                  Lastly, if you are one of those who love makeup, then opt for water-proof products so that rain does not turn you from a glam diva into an actor playing the role of a ghost! If not the foundation/base or lip colour, then at least stick to this rule for your eye makeup. 

With these tips in mind, you are good to go and enjoy the rain!! Till then, take care :-* :-*

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 

Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
