India got its Independence in 1947; today we have entered the year 2016. Although we have successfully freed ourselves from the clutches of the colonizers, we are still greatly entrapped by the dominance of patriarchy. As much as we claim ourselves to be feministic, we cannot forego the blame in sustaining the same mindset within ourselves from which we’ve tried to run off. Patriarchy is like that wild plant whose stem, even if segregated from the original root, still manages to spread its stem out and forge a new plant.

There are so many people around us who are still tied to the roots of patriarchy which breeds in the marshy lands. Even though they might look usual in the crowd, but once you spend an hour at most with them, you’ll clearly sense the evil that lurks behind their innocent face. These species are dangerous than those of the earlier times, because they’ve learnt to manipulate others in order to hide their designs from those around them. Silently try to hear their arguments, you’ll be puzzled, abundance of contradictory statements and repetitive dialogues. They would engage their own selves into rampant parties, but would turn saints when the same is done by the other sex. In short, yes they are certainly hypocritical. They’ll move forward to the path of destruction, would snip off your wings from reaching your goals because they have no meaning in their eyes. They’ve mechanized 1001 way to get you married as it would pierce hard their pride if you would go further in terms of success from them.

Sometimes I think, perhaps it is either wrong for women to have dreams in a patriarchal society, or perhaps these are the initial hurdles for reaching the zenith. Whatever it is, you can never get over these or reach a solution until you raise your voice and stop thinking on the guidelines they have set for “us”. Sometimes, it is okay to be called as ‘cleaver’ and have your way, rather than be submissive and curse each day of your life. Cursing each moment when you were in dilemma to speak out, but stopped your voice thinking it isn’t enough for these bullies. Remember, one step taken also means one step less in the greater path of life.

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!

Sugar Ace of Face Foundation Stick in 25 Macchiato - Swatches & Review

Shedding away all my laziness 😂😂
Here I am today, scribbling a blog post on one of my recent makeup purchases from the brand Sugar Cosmetics. In case you guys don’t know, I was awestruck by makeup hoarding addiction again and ended up buying more than what I initially intended. Although I had my eyes glued on their Smudge Me Not Lipstick in the shade Wine & Shine (Sangria), I also managed to pick up their much-hyped Ace of Face Foundation Stick! This particularly base product was first launched with 6 shades but now they have introduced 22 shades that will go absolutely well with almost all Indian skin tone. And no, that isn’t just a false claim like another well known Indian brand which we’ve seen since our childhood.
Let’s dive into the review without any digressions!

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. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July.

So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
