Cuts and Colours is one of the largest in Royapettah, to have a salon and spa under one roof.
We recently had an opportunity to get a haircut and hair colour with them.
Going for a hair makeover can be daunting giving to the amount of inspiration we can find off magazines and the internet. Sometimes it is hard to figure out which style would suit our face structure, and Cuts and Colours made sure our experience was super smooth.
The moment I saw the opportunity to blog about Evion, it was literally a travel that took me 20 years back in my life. Those were the times when we would feel excited when doctor prescribed supplements. It was a hectic period of professional work and highly demanding period of irregular working hours. The stress and strain led to severe menstrual cramps and also hair loss. It became so intense that we had to approach our family physician. I was advised nutritious balanced food, this advice has come to me so many times and I always found it tough to follow advice like a New Year resolution that never sustains. Knowing me too well, my doctor also added multivitamin tablets and Evion for 45 days in addition to the liberal advice of better time management. If you are not familiar with Evion, it is a Vitamin E supplement trusted and subscribed by doctors. It is such a household name that I know it for the past 30 years. Though Evion has so many benefits, I love #Evion because it makes my face acne free and also makes my hair lustrous, thick and lengthy. Not only my hair, my skin also benefits a lot from it. My skin is of a neutral tone and naturally dry so it tans easily. Skin that tans easily can benefit a lot with Vitamin E, so the supplement gave me protection from sun burns and saved me from patchy discolored face.
Weddings mark a significant milestone in our life. Be it our own marriage or wedding of our sibling or son or daughter, a wedding has never been associated only with the bride and groom, in Indian parlance, it is a marriage of families. The need to make it special is predominant in the families and they look at it as an opportunity to meet, greet and celebrate the occasion with family members and friends. Changing lifestyle has brought in innovation and creativity and couples look towards making a difference by making the wedding unique in every aspect. Such weddings are not a common occurrence and parents look for guidance to get started.
Basics of any dream wedding can be broadly classified to address outfits, jewelry, makeup and hair, venue, décor, photography, accessories, cakes, mehendi designs, return gifts, wedding packing, unique ideas and invitations. There’s so much thought process that goes into each category and for the ones who is getting to celebrate a grand wedding the very first time, it can be so daunting. This is when online platform such as WedMeGood come to our help. It is an eye-opener going through the site and we are thankful for providing a platform to plan and execute such a grand event in an organized manner.
Hair problems do not end with crowning glory and extends beyond. Hair is wanted and unwanted and it all depends on its location. Imagine a quick call from a friend in the last minute to have fun; it can be an invite from friends, a fun party, and a smoothie with your crush. The first thing that comes to a mind is the time we went for our last shave and the possibility of stubble. All the enthusiasm wanes away and the invitations are no more inviting. Epilators have come a long way and the leader is Braun epilators, researching and specializing on getting silky smooth skin at a moment’s notice!
Oral care had never been a subject of concern few decades back. We could connect it with the brushing habits, natural products, organic food, sans pesticides life and more. As we moved into the millennium, medical innovations have gone beyond just treatment to venture into cosmetic zone. Eating habits too have changed and so is our lifestyle. Still the most ignored part of our body remains to be oral care and specifically the teeth. We cannot ignore the fact that mouth is the organ responsible for our intake and the point of contact to our metabolic system. Any callousness in taking care of it can lead to overall issues with health. We had an interactive session and treatment at Apollo White Dental to understand the importance of regular dental checkups and the services they offer to customers.

Bead stones are nature’s best gifts and wearing such jewelry is carrying a piece of nature with you. Nature is mysterious and has all those hidden beauties in the form of precious and semi precious gemstones.

With a distinct advantage of holding its characteristics of gleam and glamour and no signs of aging, bead stone jewelry has gone through changes in design and presentation as we evolved.

In the 80s and 90s, when we wanted to provide a loving gift to our dear ones, we would draw and paint a greeting card or do some embroidery on the dress to give it the personal touch. With the onset of digital era, customizing key chains, cups, and apparels with photos and graffiti provided a personal touch to the item from the set of options. Websites offering such services took gifting to a different level. We have seen photographs printed on products to make it into an object that goes beyond just buying it and created a connection, an emotional bonding. The next era is about bringing our thoughts and inspiration through the digital medium. Imagine what it would be if we could create our own design and get it printed on a T-shirt. It is a great idea to give shape to your creativity and adds that extra dimension we aspire on to the T-shirt. As an added advantage, if we could sell those t-shirts for a profit, wouldn’t it be a lovely idea? This is what Freecultr offers us. We decided to try their #ExpressYourself activity to see if we could create our T-shirt store and upload our designs there so we could sell them. Read on to get to know about our experience …

I love Makeup so much that most of my allowances go to these purchases every month. Whenever any person I know comes from US or UK, I fill their suitcases with lots of make up stuff. Why? because in other countries, you get good products at cheap rates. The last time, our family friend came from the US, I discovered this awesome brand ( basically a wholesaler type of brand) which is based in California and gives you nice, good quality products at a drop dead price.
