Aroma Essential Milk and Chocolate Scrub

Aroma Essentials Chocolate and Milk Scrub is all about Pure Chocolate Indulgence…

Hi people! First of all, a very big sorry to all you lovely readers for not posting anything since long. I had a lot going on at the personal end, and work pressure at office peaked. Could catch up with hardly six hours of sleep at night. Some days, even less. I wasn’t looking and feeling the best over the past few weeks and blogging took a backseat. And I hated it.

I was dying to write. Dying. Not a day went by when I didn’t look forward to a blank canvas and wanted to scribble my heart out! This space is my own, and writing liberates me. And I’m so glad to be back. 🙂 I have a hoard of product reviews wriggling inside my head. That I’m going to share with you by and by. But let me start off with this wonderful Chocolate and Milk Scrub from Aroma Essentials. 🙂

Not My First Stint with the Brand…

I had used their face mask before that B got me from B’lore, and loved it to bits. This kind lady Madhurima then sent across quite a few products for me to try out. And yes, I ain’t compelled to review any of them. 😀 The reason I’m doing so is ‘cause I want you people to know that vegan products exist, and they’re available big time! And as long as wizards like Madhu and the Ashers (names behind Juicy Chemistry) exist, magical concoctions are bound to happen. 🙂 Read more

My Envy Box July 2017 "Into The Wild"

My Envy Box July 2017 – Unboxing, Review

Hi everyone! My Envy Box reached me about a week back when I had shared the pictures on my insta handle. However a very busy personal front got me penning down the whole review finally now. 🙂

Ever since MEB started releasing teasers for its July Box, I was hooked. 😀 The primary reason was the green clay mask and the Cocoon face serum that came with high claims. There were also the Anatomicals samples (although samples don’t excite me much) which I wanted to try. And lastly the color of the box – GREEN. Ahem, do you think I need more convincing? 😀

Dunkirk

Where Fate Defies The Survival Theory : Nolan’s Dunkirk is More than Just A War Movie – A Story Told Well

Hey everyone! So Dunkirk’s the word. Christopher Nolan’s movies are awaited, and are awaited big time. I’m one of the many who swear by his movies. So when Dunkirk hit the theaters, I knew I had to be there. 🙂 So off I went last evening notwithstanding the exhaustion of an eventful working day.

And let me tell you, the movie touched my heart. Nolan is the cinematic wizard who makes pure beauty. His vision has clarity that sees you through. The way he captures the raw emotions of countless soldiers trapped in enemy territory is a masterpiece in itself. Nolan’s Dunkirk is reality glaring at your face.

The story revolves around the evacuation of 400000 men trapped in Dunkirk during World War 2. It tells how these men hope with all their might to return home safe amidst incessant bombarding by the German airforce. It talks about their plight, their hopes, and their struggle with fate to stay alive. Here is where you realize Darwin’s theory doesn’t hold good. Because it’s not the survival of the fittest, rather the luckiest.

Dunkirk

I do not have the demeanor to judge critical aspects of the movie. I can only express my amazement at how deftly Nolan weaved a story out of human emotions. The desperation of thousands of trapped soldiers craving to reach “home”.  The rat-race that each of them get involved in looking for evacuation. Crude sentiments. So humane that you could relate to. The ones that went for evacuation risking their lives in the water, or the ones that shot down Luftwaffes in the air so that their brethren could be set free. Every emotion carved out beautifully forms the heart of Dunkirk.
