Keeping the Samsung Galaxy S10 Fresh – LED Cover

We did a small post on whether the Galaxy S10 was still relevant, especially with the Pixel 4 and the iPhone 11 coming out later this year. The answer to that question though, in case you were wondering, was a resounding yes!

Which is why I am really impressed with all the stuff that Samsung is doing in order to keep the S10 fresh. Samsung has a lot of pressure on it, being the first flagship launch of the year, and it has been supremely successful so far, with sales of the S10 still strong despite the launch of the One Plus 7 Pro.

One of the most interesting gizmos though, and the subject of this review, is this awesome LED case. This little beast snaps on to your S10, connects via NFC, and displays fancy icons, moodlighting stars and Emoji on certain events, like getting a call, getting a message or having a missed call.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S10 still relevant in mid 2019?

The Galaxy S10 was the first mainstream flagship smartphone to launch in India, and that has led to a very high burden of expectation on it to stay relevant across the year. Especially with the launch of the One Plus 7 Pro, and with the upcoming launches of the iPhone 11 and the Pixel 4. We examine below why the S10 might still be worth it, even mid way through 2019

25 Things I Wish I Could Tell My Younger Self : Part 1

Hi everybody!

It was my birthday recently, and I feel overwhelmed to have reached the quarter mark, a silver jubilee of sorts if you will.

As with all birthdays that have come post mid-teens, this one too bore slight hues of melancholy. I no longer am over-enthusiastic about adding another year to my age, not because I fear to turn old, but because that +1 makes me reflect on my previous days and all the things I wish I had known then.
I get it, wisdom comes with experience, but I’ve always felt that wisdom also comes from delving within oneself. And with that thought, here I am, compiling a list of 25 things I wish I could tell my younger self. I hope this can serve as gentle reminders of the things that matter to me as I make my way towards 30, but as I put my thoughts down, I wish they can help you too, whatever be your age.

After all, it’s just a number, right?

I’ve broken down this post into parts, as it is a lot of food-for-thought, and much better digested in small doses

Reasons why you should wear a sports bra

We always pay such close attention to our clothes, don't we? We take so much time to
choose them; we take time to dress ourselves up.
Unfortunately, many of us do not pay attention to the innerwear, and, the one thing most of
us tend to completely ignore is - the Sports Bra.
You may think that sports bras are an easy job but finding one which fits you perfectly &
does its job well is pretty complicated.

And while all of us love our traditional bras & lingerie, the ever-humble, but very much
necessary Sports Bras are quite often forgotten.
Here are 7 reasons why you need to get & wear a Sports Bra

Dot & Key : Underarm Color Correction Mask & Serum

A few days back I had mentioned these 2 products on our Instagram stories and some of you messaged me asking for more details about them. 

So, since I have been using the Dot & Key Underarm Color Correction Mask & Serum since over 5 months now, I thought why not cover the products on the blog and let you all know more.
Take a look (I have shared close up photos of my underarm before & after applying the mask and serum....just a heads up).

A while back I did a small Forest Essentials Haul & the Tejasvi Emulsion was a part of it. Like I said in that post - I wanted to get into at home facial massages. 

Now that I am fairly regular in doing them, it is the right time to share my thougths about this product.

LA Girl Fanatic Blush Palette - Blushed Babe

I love blushes. Surprisingly though, I do not buy a lot of them. 
I have a few good ones in my stash & I am quite happy with them. 
However, the one thing missing from my "blush collection" was a blush palette. I really wanted to add one in there (Hey, they'd come in super handy while travelling! I would just need to carry one palette!)

There have been a few palettes in the past which have tempted me a lot (the Estee Lauder Violette collection....I am looking at you!), but their price tags always stopped me. 
And then, the LA Girl Fanatic Palettes on Nykaa! I was won over immediately. Nothing could stop me now :D *air fist pump* YESSS!

Blue Eyeshadow Look : Monsoon Makeup

I do love me a nice blue on the eyes. I will however admit that before today, I kept blue limited to an eyeliner or a blue toned kajal/kohl on the lower lash line. Last year I picked up a blue mascara to dive further into the color. 
But never did I think that I would do a full blown BLUE EYESHADOW LOOK!

But, I have been playing with colors lately! And I am loving it!

Also, since it looks like the rains aren't coming this side any time soon (while most of the country has started enjoying their rainy days)...I thought I might as well enjoy some shades of blue, very apt for the monsoon:D
