As We Like It : Volume I - #GentlemanSays

By Ashish Gyan

There was a time, long ago, the late 80s the early 90s, when family vacations were once a year events. You went wherever your parents took you and it was great! A new place, new people, a whole new world was added to the globe in your mind.

Also, your dad and the male members of the family came back battle hardened, 3-4 shades darker, with a sloppy head of hair, sloppier, drier and knottier than usual, something which required probably a month of generous hair oil rationing to return to its before vacation sloppy. That’s how we rolled!


The female section was another story altogether! They looked (and still do), it was as if they had never moved an inch from home, never saw the same sun nor the same dust and grime and sand that we males did.

Soulflower Happy Feet Bath Soap : Review

I love a bit of feet pamper every now and then. Nothing beats a good professional pedicure of course, but then who has got time for that everytime? So, I always stock up on some essentials for some pampering at home itself. I will list them at the end of the post :)

Anyway, so Smriti had sent me a lovely birthday hamper and in it was the Soulflower Happy Feet Bath Soap. The bar looked so interesting that I could not wait to use it right away.

30 Random Facts About Me!

So, I debated if I should write this post or not. For a long time I believed that no one would really want to know random things having to do with me. The idea of doing this post came again last week and I had to pen it down to get it out of my system. Moreover, it is a good break from the regular review and diy posts and it might help you know me just a little bit more. I always enjoy reading such posts and knowing more about the people I follow regularly.

Please do mention random facts about yourself in the comments below and let us get to know each other better, shall we? :)

6. I have weird preferences when it comes to eating non-vegetarian food. So, I like chicken tikka, can have a full plate of it. I cannot however have homemade chicken or Indian gravies. I will lock myself in a room if fish or prawns are being cooked in the house. I hate the smell and won't ever be caught eating anything from the fish category.

7.  I absolutely love paneer, dark chocolate, pizza, cold coffee, caramel popcorn and eggs. and I am very particular about how each of these should be.

8. I can eat an english breakfast 3 times a day, 7 days a week! bring on the baked beans and mashed potatoes. :P

10. My wardrobe is dominated by navy, black, white, brown and beige, I love neutrals!

11. Visiting the makeup section at a store uplifts my mood on a bad day a lot.

16. F.R.I.E.N.D.S and Pizza is one of my preferred ways to unwind at the end of the day.

27. I am not big on socializing.

28. Out of the 10 different things in my wardrobe, I will find that 1 comfy trouser and a comfy kurta and wear them to death, so much so that people will threaten to stop going out with me if they ever see me in them again.

29. I hate being in front of the camera. Camera Phones is one of the worst inventions ever according to me. Why must people click so many photos! O.o

30. A traditional oil head massage, a pedicure and a good warm oil body massage can make me agree to almost anything. :P


So, that's all for now. I would love to know more about you guys too, so leave some facts in the comments below :)

Luxa Derme Foot Peeling & Exfoliating Mask : Review

A while back when I was contacted by a brand called LuxaDerma about trying out their Foot Peeling & Exfoliating Mask, I went like Foot Peeling whaaaaaaaaaaat???? I just couldn't wrap my head around a foot peeling mask and for the first few days I was quite skeptical about trying it out. I was pleasantly surprised when I did try it out though.

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick, 1 2 3 Soleil : Review & LOTD

Coral! What an incredibly pretty color. Don't you think so too? A good coral lip is one of my weaknesses (not to mention a good pink and a rich red..I have many weaknesses okay!)

So, I had not tried anything from Bourjois so far, pretty weird right? The brand has some really good products. The other day I thought I might as well get something from them. I landed with the Shine Edition Lipstick in 1,2,3 Soleil....(not very surprised. I am quite a bit into lip colors off late)
