The Hair Investment feat. Hairbitat

We all get perturbed the moment something happens to our hair. Anything related to hair or skin creates a tension in the house. Hair is an incredible feature that changes a person’s personality. It is also believed that hair is our second face and the same amount of care and attention is required. Hair loss and greying of hair is a very common issue among us. I earlier had thick black hair before I shifted to Gurgaon for work. Change of place and water resulted in an immense amount of hair loss that made me panic. Clinics and other hair treatment outlet only suggested chemical based therapy and I was against it. The only trick to save my hair was to wash my hair with mineral water, which actually was some relief for a while. So I can totally understand how you feel during hair loss but greying hair isn’t that big a deal. You can always colour your hair or apply henna. There are a lot of home remedies to follow and apply but I didn’t have the time to make them at home.

I wish Hairbitat came to India early so that I could have saved my thick long hair. Anyways coming back to the post. Hairbitat is a solution for all your hair problems. Not only does the herbal hair treatment reduces hair loss slowly, it also stops greying of hair which results in the fresh growth of your natural colour hair. The herbal hair treatment isn’t that expensive! Hairbitat is an authorised dealer of Bee Choo Origin from Singapore. It’s a 100% chemical free hair treatment for a healthy scalp, thus solving problems such as dandruff, greying hair, hair loss and the added benefit of diffusing your hair with a natural shine.

The herbal treatment takes about 2hours to 2.5 hours depending on the day and time. They have a step by step procedure. Firstly they check your hair and apply ginger tonic, which is the first step to a healthier scalp. Ginger tonic is used to stimulate and open up the pores so that the herbal ingredients gets absorbed easily.  Next, comes the 100% chemical free herbal hair paste that is applied to the scalp and hair. Post the application of the paste, a plastic is used to cover the hair from dripping with a hairband to prepare for steaming. The steaming takes about 45mins. After the hair has cooled down a bit, you will be taken to the wash section, where your hair will be washed with their in-house shampoo and conditioner. They used the menthol shampoo on my scalp which felt amazing in the Bangalore heat. I was escorted back to the seat and my hair was partially blow dried post the hair wash. At the end, Crystal concentrate serum is applied to the tip of your hair.

Making Memories with FujiFilm

FujiFilm got all the Bangalore bloggers together for a zestful evening to showcase their Instax 7s Instant Camera. It was a fun evening with the bloggers-turned-friends and cocktails. FujiFilm India was kind enough to let us experience the camera with unlimited photo sheets to understand how a polaroid works. We ran around like children at a park, clicking pictures of each other. Most of us are familiar with Instax Mini8 which comes in stunning colours and was a sensation among the teenagers. To me, the Instax camera sounds like a great idea for gifting someone who loves taking pictures. 

 

I love clicking pictures and love the concept of Polaroid. Polaroid is a synonym for memory-in-your-pocket. No matter what happens, some memories never fade and can never be replaced. One of my childhood memories would be of the street side hawker who sold “Aloo Kabli” outside our school campus in Durgapur. My mom would only give me 5 Rs a day as pocket money (it was a lot for a girl in a small town), which would be spent on a tiny bowl of “Aloo Kabli” from the hawker outside the campus for 2 Rs. For people who are not familiar with the term Aloo Kabli, it is similar to aloo chat but more delicious. It’s made of perfectly sliced aloo, tamarind, rock salt, spices and onion. No one could make it as good as the hawker outside my school. Good old days! This also reminds of an Elvis Presley song from the 70’s which we grew up listening to.

Memories pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

Quiet thought come floating down
And settle softly to the ground
Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories,
Sweet memories

Of holding hands and red bouquets
And twilight trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you

Memories pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories sweetened thru the ages just like wine,
Memories, memories, sweet memories.”

The first time I got my Instax mini8, I was out of my mind with it. Not only was it purple in colour but also made a perfect prop for Tumblr style pictures on my feed. The pictures that are close to my heart are always kept close to me in my wallet. It might sound a bit clichéd but I sometimes take it out from wallet to see the picture and it does make me smile. One of them is a picture of my latest family trip to Masinagudi and Ooty. My aunt came to India after a really long time and we made she travelled with us to places close to Bangalore. That was a super adventurous trip that I had planned and Fujifilm Instax helped me capture the moment. Another picture that I always carry with me is the time when I and my friend travelled to Benaras for the new year. We found peace in this place called Benaras among thousands and thousands of local and tourist crowd. That’s Benaras for you, my friends! I made sure we capture it on my Instax camera before we left the oldest city of India. Last but not the least is the picture of my friend who is also the photographer for most of my blog posts – Mr Saikat (Kslenscape). He not only understand my amateurish posing skills but also tolerates this unfriendly poser early in the morning. Without him, my Instagram feed or blog posts wouldn’t be picture perfect. I clicked that picture while he was photographing me for a blog post. I love these memories that make me smile, no matter what is going in my life right now.

Summer Love feat. LastInch

The April summer here is keeping me away from all the denim and pants in my closet. That’s also because I have decided to only wear flowy dresses and skirts this season. Dresses blend perfectly with effortless, casual, sophistication and elegance. It’s always easy to get into it and get out, especially when the scorching sun is shining bright like a diamond. It’s the closest best thing you could do this summer and look all fresh this summer. I would not even dare to think about black trousers or denim with temperature soaring as high as 35 degrees. It’s just impossible to stand outside. Reminds me of Calcutta, where persiparation is a part of life and the humidity becomes your best friend. I am sure all the private and public pools are a house full in the city. If not for the swimming pools, people are running to the mountains for some relief. What we learn from this are we should take an initiative towards PLANTING MORE TREES!

So many bloggers and fashion lovers out there are seen in different floral dresses this season to beat the heat. You know you gotta jump on to the floral dresses this season, if you haven’t. Florals work out amazing for dinner, work, weekends, holidays and evening. I rarely have anything floral and thank god for this dress from LastInch, which is my cue to add a bunch of colours and florals. I just can’t think about wearing black now, which I did in my earlier post but hey! you learn from your mistakes. Right?

Getting dressed for the days of summer can be a task. Between the heat and desire to do nothing, fashion sometimes takes a back seat. However, it’s always possible to look stylish and comfortable during the summer if you have few floral or light material dresses like the one I am flaunting in this blog post. I got this dress from Lastinch. The material was undoubtedly soft and summer worthy, with some lace work on the arms. I styled it with a long belt and mint heels. LastInch is another e-commerce website for all those beautiful curvy women. They have some amazing designs that without any question will automatically be added to your cart. Presently, they have a 60% off going on, on their website. They give the latest fashion without compromising on the quality. LastInch has the classiest and trendiest plus size fashion. Check out their website and start with e-window shopping!

The T-shirt Season feat. PaintCollar

I know! I know! How dare I wear black in a weather like this! I get it. But I couldn’t help it because black is my happy colour. It’s the t-shirt season and that’s what was on my mind too when Paintcollar sent me these promotional t-shirts. Graphic t-shirts and plain t-shirts are rescuers. You can either add a plaid shirt on a t-shirt to look all cool or wear it with a skirt and look all fancy. It’s a game changer! I got my Sherlock Holmes mode on because I wanted to find out “Why did Kattapa kill Bahubali?”, which I obviously couldn’t.

For people who aren’t familiar with this code, this was a viral quote from an Indian movie called Bahubali. The movie is about a strong man, who is the real successor of a kingdom called Mahismati. But unfortunately, he becomes a victim of all the conspiracies which leads into him being raised by a tribal woman on the hills. This movie’s part one has been a blockbuster hit and the part two (the revelation) is coming up in the theatre soon. Paintcollar is the official merchandiser of Bahubali and has launched Bahubali’s merchandise products to promote their upcoming movie.

Paintcollar is the artist’s place. They give opportunities to all the wonderful artists in the world to reach out to thousands of people by modifying their art into fashionable merchandise online and also earn from them. Sounds like a great platform for all the artists. The products that they manufacture are T-shirts, Laptop Skins, Phone Covers, Phone Accessories, Wall Decor etc. I was extremely fascinated by their phone cover theme called “Ladki” and their kickass posters section is literally KICKASS. You should check their homepage for the designer merchandises. The designs are vibrant and refreshing. Paintcollar surely has a huge variety of designs that makes it unique and disparate compared to other online sellers who have the same old quote in a different font. They take care of shipping and manufacturing of the merchandise products whereas their artists focus on the design and let them bring out the best of their creative side. Online design marketplaces like these are trending for an artist to showcase their talent and technology also has made it easy to upload the design. On the Paintcollar you either have the option of either selling your art or join Paintcollar and start designing.
