Woody Allen says, “Eternal Nothingness is fine if you happen to be dressed for it.” For quite some time, growing up, festival celebrations ended up being an overdose of family and sometimes family friends, who’d we would just rather be happy avoiding. It all just seemed like an eternal nothingness, and then we chanced upon dressing up and suiting up for festivities and that did make everything better, didn’t it?
So, with that sweet nostalgia and the exciting anticipation of a major festival knocking on our doors, we decided to put together carefully styled outfits for the Modern Indian Gentleman.
So Gentlemen and Ladies (for the guys in your life), what we are about to reveal are classic, time tested yet contemporary styles which will give you a sure shot hall pass at looking dapper all through Diwali.

A few weeks back I had spoken about the Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil and my eternal love for it. My love for facial oils is increasing with each passing day and I don't mind investing in good skincare products anymore, even though they are a bit expensive. I now use the Clarins one 2-3 time a week, and the other days I bring out the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Now that I have told you all about the Lotus Treatment Oil, it was only fair to talk about my other gem!

I love the cold season! There I said it. I find it way better than summer overall. One of the reasons way I love fall-winter (apart from all the cozy blankets and cardigans, the yummy hot chocolates) is "dark lips"! You can finally get out all the berry tones, deep reds, vampy colors and rock it everyday! So all my dark lippies get the love they truly deserve. Here are my current favourites for Fall- 2016. Take a look! :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, we welcome you all to the Rumble of the Jungle (the hairy kinds).
In the Blue Corner weighing in at a muscular, ripped 42 gms, is the LetsShave.com’s Pace 6 plus at a price tag of Rs. 549 (exclusive of COD charges) which arrived in style with a pack of 4 Pace 6 Cartridges.
In the Red Corner, weighing in at a sleek, 36 gms, is the Blacksaber (How cool is THAT name, right!) which came with 1 blade and is priced at Rs. 299.
Now how do they stack up against each other, that’s the big question that Gentlemen such as me, who are a bit tired of the whole Gillette juggernaut, and are on the lookout for more economical and hopefully a better shave quality, and we at Curios n Dreams embarked on a journey to answer just that question.

What's one of the advantages of being a beauty and lifestyle blogger? Getting invited to fabulous events! Last Sunday was one such amazing event, the Craft Bazaar organized by Fabindia (a brand that we at C&D have an eternal love for!). I was not quite in the festive spirits yet, but when I reached the venue I couldn't help but just feel the festive vibe all around me. Thank you Fabindia for a great experience.Take a look at all the fun activities they had lined up!

Guuurrrllll, you know I love me a good face mask! It's a perfect way to give your skin that extra TLC and makes an essential part of my feel good pamper routine. I try and use a face mask at least once a week, and usually I stick to the homemade/organic ones. But a look at these cuties by Anatomicals is enough to tempt anyone!
I got 2 of these as a part of my birthday gift hamper (my friend has quite a quirky side, so no doubt that the names had a certain appeal :P) And then I went ahead and got me 1 more. Anyway, I thought I'd should do a first impressions post of all the 3 together. Read on!

Being a beauty blogger, there are times when my stash is overflowing with products (occupational hazard). Recently I was decluttering my entire stash (throwing away expired products, seperating things that could be passed on to others) and keeping back things I love and will use. Which is when I thought I should do a post on the products I repurchase the most.
