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 :-* :-*

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask

Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives.
