Hair Colour Trends for the Winter Season

Heyy guys....
It’s already November and end of this year. Winter’s here!
I am a huge fan of coloring my hair and I know many of you love it too. Few for fun just like me and few opt this to cover up their grey hair. Either ways it’s fun to experiment and find the chic colors that suit your personality. So, here I present you with a few trending colors for this winter.
I want to focus on two things in this article.
  1. Skin Tone
  2. Natural Hair Color
Why you ask? Because not all colors suit everyone and these are the two most important factors in getting it right. Winter, which is known to cause frizz, demands that coloured hair be given more care.
For Fair Skin and Dark Hair:
People who belong to this category can try out any color. But the dark hair color can’t be colored to give a perfect shade. So you need to bleach it before which I say is not recommended.
Go for the dark colors with vibrant undertones.
Else go for highlights. The blonde shades, the reds and light browns or chocolate shades.
Also experiment with Neon colors!

As I have oily skin and is Acne prone to just give a try I buy it.

Tips for cleansing your face

Guest post by Gayathri
Hi friends, 
as I promised before, here I’m with the promise cleansing method.
Usually people cleanse by just applying the cleanser over face followed by washing it.
Olay researchers say that almost 50% women don’t cleanse their face. And among those 50%, 80% don’t do it properly. 

So here I’m going to share few things that were recommended by them
.
  • Make sure you removed the makeup. Specially your eye makeup. Remove it completely.
  • Choose your cleanser carefully, preferably a non foaming one. It should not dry your skin.
  • Wash your face before going to bed and then apply night creams if you use. Sleep with a clean face.
  • Make sure your hands are clean before you sleep. Wash them before you wash your face.
  • Keep a separate towel or napkin for your special face.
  • Don’t be harsh on your skin. Be gentle. Rub with your finger tips slowly.
  • Don’t rub the towel on your facial skin. Be gentler.
  • Wash with timid or  lukewarm water to remove the cleanser.



That was a short article with few tips to cleanse your face properly. If have any more tips please add to this. Would love to know more...

DIY - How to convert an Old bag into New !!

Guest post X by Vandana Choudhary
Hi friends
This is Vandana Choudhary from  New Delhi.
** I hope all you divas out there would love to know how can we convert an old bag into the new one.**


I want to tell you all that the bag in which I used to keep all my money was getting old and the skin over it was torn from outside,although it was in good condition from inside.

So I got an idea to do the makeover of my favourite bag and here comes the process in which you all can do it too.

Things we require:
1.We need a fabric glue(fevikwik,etc)
2.we need scissors
3.we need a new piece of cloth for pasting on the outer part of bag 

Method:
  • Now we have to cut the piece of cloth into the shape according to the size of bag.
  • Then we can paste the cloth on the bag from all the sides using the fabric glue.
  • Now also paste that cloth on the handle of bag too.If you want to add something like ribbon,etc to the bag,then go for it to make it look more stylish.
Did you like this DIY? Do you also have any easy DIY? Please leave your comments below,I would love to hear from you.

Thank You for reading it.
XOXO
Vandana

Hey Girls..
Most of my twitter and facebook friends knew about these but I wanted to put them into a post so that they will be here forever :D
So,
After bugging so many people about the eye shadow palettes.. most of them answered with this site name.
Thanks to my US friend. Who took time to buy me all these.Thank u so much :) for buying these. I swear im gonna treat you when you come here but not return the money :P


Coming to the things I bought. Eye shadow palettes have become my latest obsession. I selected two palettes. a pair of ear ring studs and a 3d nail art stickers sheet.

The things are neatly bubbled wrapped and packed in between thick thermacol sheets.
So, I was kind of sure that the products might not be broken.

Myface Blingtone eyeshadow Review,Swatches,EOTD

Guest post IX by Tejinder Kaur 
Hello Pretty gals...
Today I’m going to share my opinion of
               MyFace Cosmetics Blingtone Eyeshadow in Bellbottom Blues(MES45)
Product Description
Let’s start with the packaging; this eye shadow comes in a clear plastic case with no mirror& eye shadow brush. The packaging is not all that amazing, but it is good enough for its purpose. I must say this is ultra-modern, show-stopping eye shadows that deliver super-chic, shimmery glamour. If you want sexy shiny metallic eyes then this is for you.

Basic Rules For Health and Beauty

Guest post VII by Gayathri
Hi girls...
I was thinking to write an article on this topic since many days and finally its here for Appu’s blog...
I won’t talk much now cuz this article is going to be really long.
Hope you read it from A to Z and comment on it :D
So, a girl needs to follow few rules for her better health and beauty of course. Here I’m mentioning the minimum one should do and in budget. I’m writing this for those who don’t want to invest in things much yet want better health and beauty.
Here it goes...
Early to Bed, Early to Wake: Girls compared to boys have more chance of health problems if they sleep late at night. Make sure you are not awake after 10pm. Go to sleep by 10pm and wake up early in the morning. And one more thing is to have minimum continuous sleep for 8 hours. Forget all the tensions and enter your beautiful dream world.
Exercise: Join gym or yoga centre or go for aerobics classes. If you don’t want to invest in these, then go for a walk daily, add skipping or yoga at your own home. Don’t forget the breathing exercise, Pranayama. It does wonders for your health.
Drink lots of water: You should drink at least 2-3 lts of water everyday. Drink most of the water during day time and the rest at night. Use glass as much as possible instead of a bottle cuz it may increase chances of wrinkles near mouth at early age. Do you know what is Katrina’s first job as soon as she wakes up? She drinks 4 glasses of water on empty stomach. Its for your skin glow and hydration. 4 glasses may be difficult initially. So start with 2 now.
Regular Checkups:Get your complete physical checkups done a least once a year. Add spinal cord checkup to it. Make sure you have healthy weight, controlled BP and blood sugar always.
Take healthy food:If you have bad habits of smoking, alcohol etc., avoid it. Take out the coffee from your daily routine. Limit up to 2 cups of tea per day. Instead add green tea to your life which makes your heart healthy and skin beautiful. Eat sprouts and dry fruits early in the morning on empty stomach. Take high protein low carbohydrates food. Leave the junk. Have raw vegetables and fruits. Take citrus fruits, honey daily. Avoid salt and sugar
as much as possible. You can add honey in the place of sugar. Make sure you have enough supplement of vitamins, minerals and calcium. Ladies generally calcium deficiencies.
Positive Thinking is the main key to keep you healthy and beautiful. Always think positive. Spend some time for meditation and praying god forgetting all the tensions in your life and I’m sure you’ll feel relaxed, and fresh with more innovating ideas with great enthusiasm...
Coming to beauty...
CTM...Invest on a good cleanser and toner that suits your skin. Follow correct method of cleansing. I’ll post an article on this topic soon. Moisturizing is a very important step. After cleansing and toning, use a really good moisturizer for your skin. Make sure your skin have the moisture through out the day.

Scrubbing is also a must to deep clean your skin. Choose a good product for scrubbing. If you have blackheads, there are many products available in the market for this purpose. If no, you can have apricot or walnut scrubs. I find these work pretty good. You have even more options to choose from. Else you can also make your own scrub at home.
Have Facials:Buy good facemasks available in the market and treat yourself with it at least once a week. You can also make your own with the ingredients available in your kitchen. Go for a professional facial at parlour once a month.

Body Lotion or body butter:Get a good body lotion or body butter as per your skin. Use it after bath in the morning and at night before you sleep. Its very important to moisturize your body skin as well.


Wax your sun exposed body parts:Its not for your hair removal but its to remove the sun tan you’ve gained on your skin. You can go to parlour for it or can invest on wax strips like veet, hiphop etc. Please do not use waxing creams. These are harmful for your skin.
Oil massage and exfoliate. Spend some time on Sundays for your body skin. Have a full body oil massage. Wait for an hour and exfoliate your skin dead cells.
Help your hands and feet. Your hands do most of the work for you. So get a good hand cream and keep it moisture all the time. Have a manicure once a week either at home or parlour. Your feet walk a lot. They become hard and crack. Moisturize them daily with a good foot cream in the nights and wear  socks. This works better. Have pedicure done either at parlour or your home. 
Hair is a very important part of a girls body. You ccan never compromise with it. Choose a good shampoo and conditioner. If you have damaged hair, buy a damage control shampoo, for hairfall, hairfall control shampoo and for dandruff, anti-dandruff shampoo. If you have oily hair, shampoo it in alternate days else twice a week. Oil massage your scalp and hair and shampoo after one hour. On Sundays ou can go for hair masks. There are many home made mask recopies available. Conditioning is the important part. Do not neglect it and condition your hair after each hair wash.




And finally choose suitable hair style, clothing, makeup etc...
I know friends, its too long...But thought keep all the things here. Hope you like it.
If I forgot anything, let me know. Do comment beauties...
