It's raining Earrings and Necklaces - Traditional Jewelry Haul

In all my blog posts, I have either directly or indirectly mentioned that I love accessories so much and it defines me as a person. I am an accessories hoarder, no doubt, but I do use them and they last a lifetime.This is a long pending post as I did not find time to click proper pics of the new traditional jewelry that has joined my collection. Of course, there have been a few posts on the blog where I have even worn them , but I need to give them some due respect by featuring them separately for the love I have for them.

I would like to divide the haul into 2 sections :

1 : South Indian Terracotta jewelry : I bought 2 terracotta sets and one jhumka from a direct seller in Pollachi, TamilNadu. I came to know of her through a friend and placed my order by sending sample pic to her through whatsapp. I had ordered a necklace & earrings set from her prior to this and I have worn it here.

2 : Chandbalis & Jhumkas : You can read the story behind this here.

Pictures of the Traditional Jewelry that I bought :

Set 1 : Blue and Gold Terracotta set 

Price : INR 800

Dunkin Donuts now in Chennai

I started blogging only because I wanted people to see whether they are investing wisely in products that they like. Only after I started blogging did I know , that bloggers play an important role in influencing the readers quite a bit. 

Why am I saying all this ?

Brands consider us (bloggers) as a positive way of influencing the market & customers and tie up with us by either giving us samples for review or by inviting us for their new launches, so that we can bring them to the notice of the common public.

I was invited to attend the launch of Dunkin Donuts in Phoenix Mall,Chennai and I must admit it was the most brilliantly organized event. In India, food has always been a mode of showing love and definitely Dunkin Donuts fed us si much that I think I needed to run around  the mall at least 10 times to burn the calories.

Blossom Kocchar Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Shampoo - Should you buy it ? A Comprehensive Study

Just like how we change our attire & moods according to seasons, our skin and hair too behave differently every season. You might have all already heard me complaining a lot about my frizzy dry hair, but for those who are new to this blog, let me explain once more. My hair is very dry and frizzy and it can absorb even half a bottle of oil and continue to look dry and lifeless. So the hunt for the best shampoo and conditioner that can keep it soft and hydrated keeps continuing.

In one such desperate buy, I got the Blossom Kocchar Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Cream Shampoo and began using it.

After a tiring day , two things that can rejuvenate me are a cup of coffee and a refreshing bath. Depending on my mood and time available, a refreshing bath can range from just using a relaxing/soothing body wash or using a body scrub followed by a shower , and to top it off some aroma oil mixed  with water. 

I picked up one such relaxing shower gel ( Palmolive Thermal Spa Shower Gel with White Clay & Thermal salts ) recently and I have been using it regularly now.Palmolive offers some really good shower gels for affordable prices and they have quite a lot of choices too!!

Indulekha Bringha Hair Oil Selfie Bottle First Impression & Usage details

Selfie Mode is ON !! Not just in my camera but also in my hair oil .Confused ??? The selfie craze did not just stop with Tamil Cinema having songs(Selfie Pulla - of course) related to selfies but also with brands offering selfie products. 

Gone are the days my mother used to make me sit on Sundays and apply hair oil and massage for close to half an hour. I used to then feel it is such a boring thing to do and give her excuses,  but now after my marriage I sometimes long for those days. So whenever time permits I book an appointment at the salon for a hair oil massage, or else its the self service that comes handy.

To make life easier, Indulekha Bringha Hair Oil is being packaged in a selfie bottle that lets you apply hair oil to the roots all by yourself.

How important is an Intimate Wash to women ?

Women are multi-taskers who work, travel , take care of the family and what not ? So where does she find time to take care of herself and maintain her health amidst all this ? 

So where does the concept of Intimate Wash come in this context ?

Women are more prone to urinary tract infection as well as other vaginal infections and it is important she keeps herself clean and healthy . Our personal hygiene is really important so that we stay away from any infections and diseases especially during times of menstruation, travel and so on.

So gone are the days we used the same soap for every single part of our body.When face washes can replace soaps for face, why not an intimate wash for our vaginal health?

Summers are the best time to hit the beach and relax yourself in the sand by gazing at the shimmering water or by reading a book by the beach side.

I am listening to 'Summer of 69' while I write this article. Though I am scared of the tan that I would get , I enjoy summers because that's when you can flaunt your colorful sunglasses, umbrellas, hats & your floral dresses.

Its raining Jewelry with Confusions FA - Outfit of the day with Confusions Fashion Accessories Part 1

Recently, I have been hoarding lots of accessories -both traditional & stylish ones. I can never say no to jewelry because that is what defines me and makes me feel complete and confident.

Let me tell you a short true story :

There were these cute little twin sisters ( neighbors )  in my flat where I earlier used to stay who were very close to me . So during the summer vacations they had joined an art class and after a few days they had drawn a picture of a girl and were proudly displaying it to everyone. On being questioned by their mother who it was,  they promptly replied- “ It is Harine Akka . Cant you see the girl in the picture is also wearing long earrings like her ? “

The reason I had shared this story was because the long earrings / other accessories that I usually wore , was the first thing that had come to the kid’s mind while drawing a portrait of me. These accessories had defined me, had become a part of who I was and had also become my identity.
