Big Bazaar #BringsYouCloser

Hello my lovelies! A good discount is what we all live for, don't we? And unlike super expensive and hyped up shopping centers, there are still some places which actually keep in mind our budget and cater to our needs accordingly! And Big Bazaar perfectly fits the definition! This is the kind of place which almost constantly keeps on coming up with some new invigorating and crucially lucrative sales, which give value for your money without having to compromise on any aspect!


So one such rather interesting sale, which recurs almost every year, is back and it is the Public Holiday Sale--and 2016 will see it with a bang! The place will be holding some super awesome discounts and BOGO offers on groceries, household items along with electronics and a lot more!
The place houses almost any and everything possible from nuts, to fruits, oils, kitchen tools, utensils to bedspreads, bed covers and sheets! There is no such household item that you want and cant find in the intriguing isles of Big Bazaar! And if the most desired stuff is at a huge discounted price, what else do you need from life?

Hair Spa with Juvena Herbals and Ma Earth Botanicals

So, for the past 2 weeks I have taken out some time to indulge in a hair spa. For this at home spa, I am using products from Ma Earth Botanicals and Juvena Herbals.


In the morning before I do anything I start by applying the Juvena Herbals Spa Silk Conditioning Oil. It is not a very sticky oil and is easy to apply. I keep it for around 3 hours. The oil is so light and makes the hair so silky that it can actually be used as a hair serum too.


While taking shower, I cleanse off my hair with the Ma Earth Botanicals Hair Cleanser. This sulphate free cleanser is very mild and softening for the hair. I like the fresh feel after using it.

About "Fan" by a Fan: Movie Review

The movie Fan revolves around a Superstar Aryan Khanna and an over obsessive fan Gaurav Chandna who is the owner of a cyber café at the corners of Delhi. 


Aryan Khanna is a renowned superstar of Bollywood and it was completely his own efforts - No influence but sheer hard work. On the other hand, Gaurav Chandna who looks like Aryan by birth is all dragged and obsessed with Aryan’s stardom. He spends 20,000/- to meet him and show him his “Super Sitara” trophy which he won by acting in his colony. He refers himself as Junior Aryan Khanna and perfectly imitates him. He goes to Mumbai without ticket, stays in the same hotel and same room in which Aryan Khanna stayed in his struggling days. Gaurav is happy with his “Junior Aryan Khana” tag and wants to live it throughout his life. In short, he wants to do all those things which Aryan did during his struggling days. 

Hat’s off to the cinematography and the graphics team. They did a wonderful job. All the scenes were beautifully depicted and it didn’t feel like it was one person acting two diverse roles ,  and not to forget the makeup team, how they developed Gaurav Chandna from Aryan Khanna. The cast was brilliant . I don’t think anyone would have pulled off the role better than SRK and SRK.

10 Best Things to do in West Sikkim

India is incredible, and my trip to West Sikkim had been such a memorable experience, I wanted to share the details. Starting from Melly, it takes a wonderful serpentine turn, and the view of river Tista flowing with us like a flawless companion is truly mesmerizing. We stayed at Lower Pelling, a small town. There are so many things to do and watch in Sikkim but some are exclusive ones that you must not miss.



1. Kanchenjunga:



This mountain range appears like a glass which is about 8,586 m. This is the third highest mountain range in the world. It creates a heavenly environment during sunrise. The mountain reflects the sun rays and changes its colour in magically. Upper pelling is the best place to enjoy this wonderful view. After the sunrise the mountain gets whiter than anything in the world. If you are the late riser, the view of sunset also is something to look out for.

2. The Lake Khecheoparli.

Give Your Shoes A Makeover With Helios Premium Shoe Range

Give Your Shoes A Makeover With Helios Premium Shoe Range

-BY ISHLEEN

Hello my angels!
We at Beauty and Beyond have always tried to bring you everything BEAUTY, and all things BEYOND! And going beyond our niche, today we are here reviewing a premium shoe care range which not only makes fantastic products, but also retails them at prices catering to every pocket. So going into the shoe-cleaning details, here we start with the Helios premium range review!

Shoe Cream - The fastest way to polish your shoes!


This little 60 gram tub of creamy shoe cleaning goodness retails for 99 bucks and indeed is the fastest way to polish your shoes. My tub said NATURAL, so there are chances that either they have more colour variants in the polish or may be this is the natural shade suitable for all shoe colours. It has a tiny sponge brush which can be used to dispense the cream equally all across the shoe and shine the shoes from all the sides! I personally like to use it after polishing my shoes with my black polish and then adding that extra shine to the shoes with the shoe cream!
