Togetherness

Source – DigitalSynopsis

The picture above says it all!

Don’t you think that technology is ruining our relationships in some ways? I am not talking about the usual husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend relationship but about our relationship with everyone around us. Be it parents, siblings, uncles, aunts, kids, neighbors or even strangers. We always get so much engrossed with our smartphone or laptop that we even forget to blink! I am not saying that technology is a bad thing, in fact it’s really good and helpful if it’s being used properly. πŸ™‚ Look, I use technology to post all these awesome articles on my blog!  πŸ˜€

OK, even I should admit that I am addicted to my smart phone and I need it besides me all the time. πŸ˜› Oh but i am not the only person in my house addicted to it, My dad is also in the smartphone addiction club! Me and my parents always go on small outings together at least once in every 15 days to spend some quality time together but still, There have been many instances in past where me, My mom and my dad are sitting together for some family-talks but instead of talking, Me and my dad get engrossed with our respective smartphones while my mother stares at our faces and that is when I realize how a damn phone can ruin some beautiful moments of our life. My mom can also use technology but she doesn’t feels the need to use it. I asked her once if she would like me to set up a Whatsapp or Facebook account for her so that she can interact with her friends online, she said no and told me that she would rather enjoy interacting with them in real life.

Spending time on some social media website isn’t the same as connecting with people in real life. If you send me a funny joke on Whatsapp I would just reply you with “lol” or “hahaha” and will forward the message to all other people in my contact list, But, if you tell me the same joke in real life, I’d laugh my heart out even if I have heard the same joke a million times before! It’s only because we feel more connected to eachother when we are physically together. It’s good to stay in touch with people via social networking sites but whenever you get a chance, you should meet people in real life too. πŸ™‚

This era of digitalization has somehow affected our mother nature too! What was the last time you actually appriciated the beauty of mother nature instead of clicking a photo of it to post on Instagram? Have you ever planted a tree or even watered one? You don’t remember, Right? We people think that planting a tree and taking its responsibility is a huge task but seriously it’s not! Just watch the video below

You see, How a little red cap united all of them! Isn’t it a brilliant initiative by Kissan? Let’s discover the #RealJoy of Togetherness by breaking the shackles of the digital world and instead get down to the root and connect in person, by feeling and sharing real emotions in the real world!

I agree to ensure (to the best of my abilities and circumstances) that my blog post will remain accessible in an un-altered state for a minimum of one year.

Get Long Hair Instantly With CC Hair Extensions!

Not everyone is blessed with naturally thick and long hair. If you want to add some length to your hair then CC Hair Extensions are here for you! 

I was really surprised when I saw their collection of hair extensions on their website because they’ve so much variety! Be it clip in hair extensions, micro loop hair extensions or hair weave, They have everything! Man, I didn’t even know that so many types of hair extensions exist! I have been (badly)craving for long hair ever since my hairdresser-chopped-off-too-much-hair-length accident happened in June, now I am left with chin length bob which really annoys me, I am sure that I am not the only girl in the world who is not happy with her current hair length, Well that’s when hair extensions come to the rescue! Thanks to the person who invented them!  πŸ˜€

Most of the hair wigs(extensions) are made up of artificial fibres and they’re very unnatural looking but CC Hair Extensions are made up of 100% natural human hair and come in highly reasonable prices! No one will be able to figure out that you are wearing hair extensions because they will completely blend with your natural hair! Now let me give you a small walkthrough of their site – http://cchairextensions.com And the products they offer..


It is pretty easy to navigate through their site. You’re given the option to select what type of product you want on the homepage itself. I feel that this type of website design saves a lot of time of the customers! 
          
CC Hair Extensions

Their hair extensions come in variety of colour and sizes ranging from 15″ to 30″. Here are some of them..

clip in hair extensions (left to right – Straight, Yaki, Wavy)

Pre Bonded/U Tip hair extensions

micro loop hair extensions

Out of all these varieties, I liked the Clip-In hair extensions the most because they’re very convenient to use, you can apply them and take them off by yourself easily! They have many more colours, textures and varieties of hair extension available on their website http://cchairextensions.com so don’t forget to check it out.  πŸ™‚ Let me know what you shop from them in the comment below.

Lakme Nail Colour Remover Review

It’s time to remove this gorgeous red nail paint! πŸ™  So I am taking this opportunity to review Lakme Nail Colour Remover which I recently repurchased.

Lakme Nail Colour Remover comes in a glass bottle so you have to be  really careful while using & storing it. It has a plastic stopper with small whole so it drops adequate amount of product to cotton swab, 2 drops are enough to remove nail paint on one finger, let me show you the example.

I am wearing two coats of nail paint (no base coat or top coat) I reviewed here. You can see it has faded a bit on tips, it could last for 2-3 days more but I am removing it because I’ve to review another beautiful nail paint,  stay tuned. πŸ™‚

It completely removes the nail paint but since I was wearing a darker one so it left behind pinkish stains. The formula kind of dries my nails and you can see it in the pic.

What I like about Lakme Nail Colour Remover 

β€’ Super affordable & easily available in market.

β€’ The plastic stopper is perfect because it drops enough amount of product. Other brands have really crappy stoppers.

β€’ Removes the nail paint completely.

What I don’t like about Lakme Nail Colour Remover 

β€’ It smells!

β€’ Dries my nails a bit.

β€’ Comes in a glass bottle and it can break in 1 2 3.

Overall I quiet like this product and I keep repurchasing it. πŸ™‚

Which nail paint remover do you use?  Let me know in comments.

There’s going to be a flood of (amazing)product reviews on my blog for next few days so keep visiting! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog via email or follow me on bloglovin. πŸ™‚

Best way to get rid of facial hair

I never get waxing done on my face or upper lips/eyebrows, not because it’s painful but the idea of doing it to my face horrifies me! Now you can also say “No” to waxing! I’ve discovered an easy and (almost) painless way to get rid of facial hair that I am going to share with you all.

You will need –

β€’ 2 Tablespoons Besan (Gram Flour)
β€’ 2 Tablespoons water
β€’ Few drops of honey (if you’ve dry skin)

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl, honey is an optional ingredient. Apply this paste to your face using your fingers or a brush. Let it dry until your skin starts feeling “stretched”.

Now gently scrub off the pack with your fingers. If it feels really painful then soak a cloth in warm water and use it to remove the pack but it may not help much to get rid of facial hair.

Please don’t try this if you have diabetes because diabetic people are prone to skin infections. My mom has diabetes so she simply washed off the pack with lukewarm water

My skin is feeling really soft after trying  this method!  Let me to know if you try it too  πŸ™‚
