What to Wear During Monsoon Season

This is a guest post from Surf Excel India on some tips regarding the perfect wear for monsoons

It’s that time of year once more, when we can’t step foot outside of our homes without getting caught in the heavy rains; and while most of us are concerned with weather-proofing our homes, battening down the hatches, and memorising the bus timetable so we don’t have to walk to work, we’re forgetting one very important thing: to plan our outfits for the wet weather.

What should we be wearing during the monsoon? Well, the obvious answer is something waterproof – keep your leather jackets and your suede shoes in the cupboards for now! However, we should also be basing our fashion choices on how easy they are to wash. After all, we often find ourselves doing double the amount of washing during monsoon season, as our clothes get saturated in muddy water, dirt, and grime. While we can rely on the washing care and detergent labels to help us deal with muddy clothing – with plenty of laundry tips and clothing repair advice available online to interpret them – we can reduce the workload with a bit of monsoon-wise dressing. So, fortunately, doing the monsoon laundry today isn’t quite the nightmarish chore it once was!

The Nature's Co. LemonGrass Foot Spray & My Monsoon Wish List

The quest for my Monsoon-apt products continues and I have got another splendid one that is The Nature's Co. Lemongrass Foot Spray. 

Which part of our body gets most affected by weather? It is our feet. We women may always be conscious about our appearance, but it is seen that most of us neglect our feet. During the monsoons, our feet always get affected by continuous exposure to water. This may make the feet dry, swelling and smelly. A foot spray with the goodness of Lemongrass is just what we may require this time.

A Touch of Love with Baba Elaichi

This post is in response to the Blogger's Contest organised by Baba Elaichi

I love to write about beauty & fashion mainly, but I have another love and that is cooking. I am fortunate enough to get a mother-in-law who also shares this same passion. So, when I received a sample of Baba Elaichi for review, the one common thing that came into our mind was to try out this luxurious silver-coated cardamom seeds in some experimental culinary extravaganza.

It is very difficult to get a complete me-time nowadays, and what can be better than a spa session to get a perfect me-time? So, when I was invited to try a Spa Session at the Four Fountains De-Stress Spa in Mumbai, I was really excited.

Presently there are 4 branches of Four Fountains De-Stress Spa at Mumbai-
I went to the Powai branch  as it is the nearest from my place. As soon as I entered I was greeted warmly by the 2 ladies at the reception.There were no doctors available at that time but I was given a form to fill up. As I entered all my details, they asked me to choose from the innumerable options they had.

“Our watch has ended.”

It has been a riveting two months and it’s going to be an agonizing wait for Game of Thrones season 5. The show that took the entire world by storm and had even us, in Mumbai reiterating catch phrases like “Winter is Coming” in spite of Mumbai not having seen a decent winter in eons!

There is so much we will miss about the show, from Tryrion Lannister’s circumstantial sarcasm, Oberyn Martell’s exotic Dornish accent (and his even more exotic mistress), our Khaleesi’s three dragons and of course, to Jon Snow knowing nothing!

Disclaimer: We haven’t picked these women on basis of them being our favorites or next thing you know, George R.R. Martin will have them brutally slaughtered.

Those of you who regularly follow my blog know that I am very particular about my skin care. By skin care I mean even my body skin as well. However, there is a striking difference between  the skin of my face and that of my body. While my face is quite oily and requires products that are less creamy, my body is quite dry and often gets bumpy rashes so requires ample of hydration throughout the year. Throughout the year I strongly seek resolve in some very creamy and nourishing body butters, specifically from The Body Shop. 

TRESemmé shows you how to style it like the football WAGs!

It’s literally half time for the ongoing football season and the fever is only rising…higher!
While all eyes are on the top players, there are a few beautiful wives and girlfriends who have been in the limelight too. For all the right reasons, of course. From the fashions they are sporting, to the diets they are maintaining, the WAGs of these stars are much a part of the spotlight as their famous husbands/partners.
Celebrate this football season in style as TRESemmé’s expert, Daniel Bauer decodes some of the hottest styles worn by the famous WAGs of the football world.  

The 60’s Bouffant

Chick, sophisticated and sheer class is how we best describe the most stylish WAGs. This 60’s Bouffant is everything you look for in an elegant evening out on the town. Just follow these quick 3 steps to rock this style:
Step 1 - Wash and condition with the TRESemmé Smooth & Shine range to make your strands gleam with superstar shine. Then divide the hair into half, from one ear to the other. Brush the bottom half up and secure with an elastic at the highest point close to the crown into a pony, which you can roll into a bun.
Step 2 - Back comb the front half section by section staring from the crown moving towards the front to add height and volume. Spritz with hairspray to ensure that your style lasts for a long time.
Step 3 - Sweep this front section back lightly brushing the top to make it smooth and loop it around the bun at the back, secure with pins.

When the sun is too intense, you need a spot in the shade.
