Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask Review

In one word this is amazing!

It feels smooth for being a mud pack and is an orange color. There are little scrubby beads also that I felt while applying (could very well be of apricot - not sure though!).

Effect on my skin:
At first I did not notice any effect and thought it was just regular. Then, the very next day all my dry patches disappeared and stayed the same for a week.

More about the product: It has Vanilla and Apricot. It has Argan hydrating and Detoxifying treatment.

My skin type: Dry

I was introduced to Josie Maran products at Sephora and it has always worked wonders for my dry skin. Also, love their cleansing milk.

Thanks so much for reading.

DIY Hair color transformation at home | Balayage a natural Dip Dye ♡


What I did: I did leave an inch section uncolored each side from my middle part so that it would blend well ( look more natural and professional haha I tried!). Then I simply kept taking random hair strands and coloring (as shown - some from middle and some near the hair ends)

I kept it on for an hour till I saw some color developing and then simply rinsed out with plain water. I did not shampoo for good 24 hours.
Caution: If you are using this color on your scalp please strictly follow the directions that your hair color comes with. I could play around a bit because I had no color touching my scalp. I exceeded the duration by 15 mins.

Disclaimer: I am not a hair professional by any means so please do your research and speak to a professional before doing any hair treatment or procedure. With this video I am just sharing how I colored my hair and this isn't a tutorial.

Product used: Loreal Technique Hicolor blondes for dark hair only and Salon Care 30 volume creme developer
I got mine at my local Sally Beauty Supply store.
I used half bottle of developer which makes it 2flz oz with full color tube.

Let me know if you like this color transformation on me!

Miami to Keywest

I hope you will enjoy vlog of our trip to Miami and Key West. It is linked right at the end of this post. During our stay we visited some amazing places and it was real fun vloging them. Apart from the vlog which you will see, with this blog post, I would like to share some pics and tell you little bit about where we loved our eating experience. We had a great time at D'vine Hookah lounge at Lincoln Mall Road, Miami Beach that has a dine in the open concept. There are many more options at Lincoln Mall Road, Miami for you to discover. And some of them even serve great breakfast. Also, Espanola Way has some awesome Spanish options that got us tempted to try.

Morning at South Beach

Miami city 

Keywest, Florida

We had been waiting to drive on the famous Keywest drive. So, we drove from Miami to the very Southernmost point of the US. A must have experience for sure. Before heading to the little pier at the beach, we just sat back and enjoyed our time with that view, some shrimp cocktail and our favorite drink at the Southermost Point Beach Cafe, Keywest. It was one of the most amazing sunsets ever. You will love those clips in that vlog.

Clinique Moisture Surge First Impression & Review

Clinique is one of my favorite brands. When I first got it, I fell in love with the packaging. It has a silver shade cap and little glass container which reflects the peachy moisturizer. :)

This product is a silky / velvety gel consistency that soon disappears onto your skin. So, it has quite a luxurious feel. Although it says its 100% fragrance free, I felt some kind of an alcohol scent in the fragrance. Not really sure why! The smell is very mild and nothing that should be bothering, in my opinion.

I have a dry skin so I felt an instant relief the first day of use. Though, later in the day I had dry skin again. The next day, I saw it being more therapeutic, like slowly acting to cure and my skin felt great for much longer. The third day and so on, it has been more lasting for me and my skin feels better. 

So, overall it is a great hydrating product that will provide relief to your skin's moisture needs. 

I will be reviewing more of Clinique products soon. Let me know what would you like me to review next.

DIY all Natural Bronzer

This is the one of the most amazing diys that I have ever done. Its natural and should normally last till the shelf life of these respective ingredients.

Something to keep in mind though is that not all natural ingredients could be suitable for every skin type. Everyone has different skin type and sensitivity levels, so try on a small area first.


1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp cinnamon powder
3/4 tbsp cocoa powder. 100% cacao is the best thing to use.
(I have even tried making with coffee and it works too!)
Note: Measures are not exact, so try and work around your skin tone.

Here is the video on me making this bronzer and demo.

Optional Ad ons:

Nutmeg powder if added can give a sunkissed brown shade.
You could even add hibiscus powder for a pinkish hue add on.
Few drops of your favorite essential oil or body lotion could actually bind it all together.

If you want to make bronzer for dark skin, you might want to use more cocoa powder. For more match to lighter skin use more cinnamon powder. For olive skin tone, I love to use both cinnamon and cocoa powder almost in the same ratio.


With cornstarch as your base, add other ingredients and mix well. And this is ready to use.
Store in a clean airtight container.

Thats it! So easy and works perfectly. Hope you make it and let me know how it turns out. If you have any queries you could leave it in the comment box down below.

DIY Amazing Arabian Wax | Sugaring Tutorial and Demo

Arabian Depilatory wax or Sugaring or Persian wax is an easy diy and is all Natural. I am totally in love with it! It has certainly taken few trial and errors but has been so much worthit! So, I am really excited to be sharing this video and blog on making 'sugar wax at home' and actual 'demo' with you.

Arabic wax dates back to centuries and is an effective, less painful way to remove hair. It is a type of sugaring but does not use any stripes to remove hair. Most Egyptian, Indian or other Asian hair removal techniques use cane sugar as a main ingredient to remove unwanted body hair. The process is gentle and the results are long lasting.

Pic: Sugaring demo

You will need:
1 cup cane sugar
(use ground sugar as granulated can become difficult to work with)
1.5 tbsp lemon juice
1tsp seasalt
2 tbsp water

Nonstick pan, something to stir (spoon), marble surface or glass/ceramic plate placed over a dish of cold water and plastic bag to store the wax.

Note: Lemon or vinegar is used to avoid crystallization of the sugar liquid.

Prepare the setup:
Before cooking, have the setup ready. On your marble surface or glass/ceramic plate pour few drops of water and spread evenly. If using glass/ ceramic plate. Have a pan filled with chilled water and place the plate over it. Then pour few drops of water over it, this will prevent sugar syrup from sticking.
Have a bowl filled with water as we will need it later.

Mix all contents in a nonstick pan and let it simmer over medium heat. Keep stirring till you reach a golden color and a syrup like consistency. Turn off the heat/burner. Slowly pour over marble/glass or ceramic surface.  Taking the spoon play with it towards the corners and work your way to the centre. This will give it some time to cool down.

Slowly the syrup with start becoming dense. Let it rest for 30 secs not more. Take some water from the bowl we had kept aside rub between your palms. Now carefully (as it is hot)  gather in between your palms.

Keep adding little water (just few drops in your palms) and knead and stretch till it becomes supple. You will notice a change in color as you keep stretching. When supple, it should be ready to use. Yay!!

It might sound tiresome, but once you get the hang of it, its very easy.

Watch my video below for full details on making and demo.

CAUTION-  It can be really hot, so be careful. If you are a kid or teenager, take permission from your guardian and have some adult supervise you. 
Always test on a small area first, as all of us have different skin types and allergies.

How to Use:

It can be used two ways and the most efficient is the second way that I have mentioned below.
1- Taking a small amount from the wax we prepared and spread it in the direction of hair growth applying even pressure. And swiftly remove against the hair growth. Use water to clean the area.

2- Mostly sugaring paste is applied in the opposite direction of hair growth and removed in the direction. Initially you might find it hard to work this way because the way only works good when you go really slow and le t the sugar sit before removing. I have tried that too and results are far better that way in terms of less damage hair follicle damage and hence less or no ingrown hair.

You only need a small amount to work with at a time,  so once it has cooled down, roll the remaining into a ball and store in a plastic bag or any airtight container in refrigerator. 

When using again, microwave it for no more than 5 seconds or leave at room temperature (depending on the geographical conditions you stay in), till it becomes of the initial consistency we first used at.

It is all natural with no harmful preservatives or hormone disruptors as might be present in some commercial waxes.
Results should last more than 2 weeks depending on your hair growth.
Removes even those tiny hair
It is definitely economical
Skin is left really smooth and soft after it
Could be used on most body parts (note - it depends on your skin's sensitivity in that area)

If you have any questions, you can leave that in the comment box below and I would try my best to answer them.

 And hope you will give it a try and enjoy silky smooth skin. :-))

DIY Sonam Kapoor Inspired Waterfall Braid Hairstyle | Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi song

Now, watch this song Dheere Dheere if you haven't already and Sonam Kapoor just wears this beautiful hairdo all through the song. I am in love!

That's the beautiful waterfall braid I saw her wearing twice in the song - once a single braid and at the end a set of three waterfall braids. So, I had to recreate my version of the hairstyle. I wanted it to be such so that anyone could do on their own.
Sonam Kapoor Inspired Hairstyle Look
Dhere Dhere Inspired Hairstyle Look

Mostly, it becomes difficult to execute a similar look when you 'do it yourself' without help of someone else. So, I tried and came up with this look here.

This is my take on the beautiful waterfall braid. I just loved how it turned out so I made this tutorial. Below is the link to my video tutorial.

This could be worn both casually and for special occasions. I love the fact that it is easy and does not take much time. Hope you will have fun with this look. Which is your current go to hairstyle?
