Hey all!
How I love the wednesdays...they come and comes the feeling that the weekend is not far away and finally I start the countdown. Sharing this pic clicked early morning at the time of sunrise. As the winter is slowly setting in, the nights are going longer and the sunrise occurs a bit late. Love these long winter nights...just wish they can go on and on and on....
(Are you feeling the Diwali vibe in the air yet?)

Hey beautiful people!
Now since Diwali is just around the corner...we all are concentarting on cleaning our homes...right? But what we all are ignoring is our skin.... Imagine your house sparkling clean but your skin dull... I know that this cleaning and all takes all the time and leaves us tired ...but this does not mean that we can let our skin be lifeless...after all diwali means all things sparkle and bright and clean...Including your skin. So today, I am sharing with you all  super easy and quick tips so that you glow like a diya.
I will be sharing the mirracles of the magical aloe for our well being. Now this plant is really cheap and easy to find and its gel does wonders for your skin, hair and body.This gel has vast range of Vitamins (including Vitamin E –which is very important for skin), Minerals, Amino Acids & Enzymes. Aloe is weirdly a close match to our Skin’s pH balance. Therefore, it is able to moisturize and heal Skin fast.


Suitable for all skin types, aloe vera gel can be used even by people with sensitive skin. Let`s take a look at the benefits of using aloe vera gel to treat skin conditions.

1. Aloe vera gel is great for moisturizing.

For women: Popularly used as a moisturizer by women who use mineral make-up regularly, aloe vera gel is great for face. Applying aloe vera gel on skin prior to application of make-up can prevent the skin from drying.

For men: Aloe vera gel can be used as an aftershave. Its healing properties can treat small cuts caused by shaving.

2. Aloe vera gel is great for treating acne.

Aloe vera gel has antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. Aloe is moisturizing but doesn`t give skin a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily complexion.

3. Aloe vera helps fight common problems of skin aging.

Let`s face it: as we get older, everyone begins to worry about the appearance of lines and the loss of elasticity in our skin. The vitamin C and E present in aloe gel can improve our skin`s natural firmness and keep our skin hydrated.

4. Aloe vera can lessen the visibility of stretch marks.

Whether due to a growth spurt, weight change, or pregnancy - many of us are plagued with unsightly stretch marks. These marks appear due to minor tears in the layers of the skin caused by sudden and excessive stretching. Aloe vera gel can help hide these stretch marks by healing these wounds.

5. Aloe vera can be used to treat sunburn.

Aloe vera gel can reduce the pain and swelling you experience during sunburn. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. When the skin is hydrated, then it will recover faster from the sunburn.

ALOE FACE PACK: Mix together aloe gel, egg white, curd, lemon juice and a pinch of turmeric and blend well. Apply the mixture all over your face and neck or over your entire body. Leave it for 15 mins and wash with cold water. You will get a fresh, younger, dewy and glowy skin in minutes. If you want to thicken the face pack then you can add besan/multani mitti/sandalwood powder etc to your mask.


 Aloe vera  gel is great for hair and gives your hair shine along with health. Apart from that it also contains enzymes that are involved in hair growth.

It also stops and prevents hair fall.

ALOE HAIR PACK : Mix together aloe gel, 1 egg, curd, glycerine, and olive oil in a blender. Massage this mixture into your hair from roots to the tip. Wear your shower cap and let it sit for around 30  mins before washing and conditioning your hair.

ALOE VERA FOR WEIGHT LOSS: Yes you read it right, aloe vera gel/ juice taken daily helps reduce weight and also to detoxify your body.

There is no doubt about the fact that Aloe Vera was called as the ‘plant of immortality’ years ago by the Egyptians. Cleopatra swore by the use of Aloe Vera and considered it as the secret to her beauty. Today, this plant is used by people worldwide for a variety of uses right from treating health disorders like insomnia to hair treatment like baldness.

Aloe Vera oil, lotion, gel, cream, body wash, juice, body lotion, shampoo..the list is endless. Aloe Vera has evolved over the years and will continue to do so.

Hey all!

A very happy dusshera and durga pooja to YOU(yaa you who is sitting in front of your computer and reading this post...thank you for my regular visitor...and also comment if you wish). I am sorry if I am sounding mean...after all this post is all about happiness and about the celebration of the triumph of good over evil.
Now for all of you who all dont know about dusshera and durga pooja, read about it here.
Lemme tell you what me and my family does on this very auspicious day.
  • We go to near-by ramlila ground and enjoy the burning up of effigies of Ravana, Kumbhkaran and Meghnad.

  • We savor the jalebis.
  • We all have a off-day on Dusshera here in India, so it is family time and we all sit and do chit chat.

(Lord Rama killing Ravana, and bringing Sita back home )
(Goddess Durga killing Mahishasura)
So how do you all celebrate the festival?
Now dusshera is here,so lets gear up for diwali now...

He was sitting at one corner calmly and I was standing there on the other corner...he saw me...I saw him...we both saw each was love at first sight for both of us.... he said in his sweet voice "Take me home" and I just nodded...just couldn't say NO to him....He is such a sweetheart...he sits pretty on the wall and carries all the keys...without ever saying a word...our love is beyond words.

Hey all!!
Today is the eight day of navratra ( thats why it is called ashtmi).It marks the end of the 7 day fasting of navratra for us and feasting and praying small little girls(regarded as various forms of goddess durga called as kanjakein) and one boy..the menu includes poori,chole and halwa. And every one says Jai mata di and take their blessings.We give them gifts and clean their feet, apply kumkum on foreheads and role moli (red thread) on the wrists. And also we sow wheat seeds (called khetri) on the first day of the navratra and on the eighth/ninth day(some people also celebrate navmi) we immerse this in the holy river.Also during these Days we abstain from onions/garlic/non veg etc and only eat satvik food.

Goddess Durga in her various forms
Happy ashtmi to you all again. May Goddess Durga bestow her blessings upon everyone.
