What’s On My Bedside Table? (Sleeping Essentials)

“Sleep is the best meditation”

As stated by Dalai Lama, sleep plays a vital role in the proper functioning of our brain, mind, heart and soul. However, with so many thoughts and deadlines pre-occupying our mind, the first thing we do is to cut down on our sleep, little realizing that it may lead to insomnia in the longer run. Thus, sleeping at least 6-8 hours is a must! Today, I will be sharing with you a couple of things that I like to keep on my bedside table to soothe down my senses and refrain random thoughts from disturbing my sleep. So, without further adieu, let's begin with the blog post. 😊😊

Aromatic Candles
Personally, I’m very much fond of candles. So much so that I hoard them in abundance but avoid lighting them!! An aromatic candle aids your senses to turn off from the overworking mind and bringing it into the present moment. If you happen to have a candle with lavender fragrance, then I must tell you that it helps in sleeping a lot better (tried and tested by people across the globe). By the way, in case you don’t have an aromatic candle, you can always go ahead and DIY it using a normal candle by pouring a few drops of essential oil onto the wax. Further, an aromatic candle can also work as a night lamp for those who do not like to sleep in complete darkness.

Hand Cream/Body Lotion/ Moisturizer
Hydration never hurts anyone; therefore, make sure to keep a hand cream, body lotion or a moisturizer on your bedside table. You can use it before hitting the bed and it will ensure that your skin gets pampered while you doze off. Moreover, the application process helps in massaging your skin/body, therefore, stimulating relaxation and sleep. And of course, the fragrance is a bonus here. There’s no doubt in the fact that you’d wake up to a happy, healthy and supple skin. If you have dry skin, then you should definitely not skip on this part! In case you like body butter, they are warmheartedly welcomed in this list as well. πŸ˜ƒ

Eye Shade
If you are born in an Indian family and you tend to sleep with your parents or sibling, chances are you might need these for sure! If you don’t need them, chances are that your parents need them while you’d scribble blog posts late at night. Anyways, I’ve got a couple of them for my parents, although they’ve kinda adapted themselves to my late night working. I bought mine from Miniso store which helps in keeping puffy eyes at bay! 

Nobody is interested in counting sheep at night anymore. Sometimes, you have to be that storyteller to a kid that resides within you. Therefore, reading a magazine or novel would really help you in falling asleep. Please note that in case you are really passionate about reading, make sure to keep some snacks nearby as you may get too engrossed into the text! Just a word of warning. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Water Bottle/Glass of Water
Lastly, keep a bottle or glass of water so that you don’t deprive yourself of inner hydration. Otherwise, you might end up dreaming about the desert, sand dunes, barren land, drought and what not!

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

Shedding away all my laziness πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
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!

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!

Exploring A World Within: Ethnic Outfit Ideas - OOTD - Monsoon Diaries

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
When I started my journey as a blogger, I shied away from being captured in pictures. For some odd reason, I was always missing from school pictures, group pictures and a lot of other pictures. On top of that, my introvert personality stopped me from doing outfit posts on a regular basis. So until now, majority of my blog pictures revolved around flatlays and product photography. #ComfortZoneAtItsBest πŸ˜‚

In fact, my phone’s memory contains more pictures of flatlays than it has of me. This is also one of the reasons why my WhatsApp DP stays without a picture. P.s. no, I haven't blocked you πŸ™ˆ 

Now that I feel that I’ve improved a lot in terms of my flatlay photography, I incurred a realization that aesthetics of picture touches a top notch when there’s human element incorporated. Not necessarily my face but probably my hand, hair …
