Chaaii junction for a sip

Hello everybody!
It is another review of a cafe .
Around This time of the year , I tend to go to cafés a lot somehow . Basically because I’m running  around attending coaching classes and looking for the best colleges . And that means I get hungry and thirsty a lot .

It’s hard to find a good café with affordable items on the menu .

Placed in the hub of vontikoppal , Mysore it is a little after vidyashram.

It is a kind of place which will definitely not let your wallet feeling light and airy . In fact , it could as well leave you feeling satisfied and your thirst  quenched .
I would rate the following as so –

Food and drink – 4
I wouldn’t say it is extremely mouth watering or delicious , but it does have a very good taste .

Ambience – 3.5
One part of the cafe is lit well with natural light and is perfect . The tables , the couches are of very fine quality and are comfy . But the green lighting on the other side isn’t very pleasing .

Service – 5
It is self service but the reason I gave it 5 was because, they were very quick in filling up on orders.

Affordability – 5
It is indeed very affordable . I ended up spending only 150 rupees from the three of us .

And there you have it . I’d say it’s a pretty cool place to chill out and quench your thirst and have a bit of a snack .

        Hope you enjoyed the post .
                   Till  next time .

Bringing up the lost roots

Hello everybody!
This will be a slightly different post to what I usually put up. Today I will be reviewing a restaurant.

But what makes this post special is that , this restaurant is not just any other, typical restaurant.  It is what we fail to get these days . It takes a lot of courage to do something like this when youngsters run behind fast foods .

I’m talking about madhva bhavan .

Placed around an area of hustle and bustle in the royal city of mysore , madhva bhavan serves you the most healthy , hygienic and homely prepared food .
They are bringing back a lost treasure to the surface . Eating out of plantain leaf has its own pleasure . But apart from that not many know the health benefits and other properties that come from eating out of the leaf .

Down to the food , I’m going to rate it below –
Food – *****
The taste of the food will leave you surprised. It’s not too spicy or too plain . The right amount of sweet and savoury food varieties combine to give your taste buds a satisfaction never felt before .
Plus it is healthy ,unlike other restaurants they do not include  unhealthy ingredients to gain profits . You could pass it for being organic  .
Ambience – ****
I would give ambience a 4 on 5 only because many people will probably  find it quite different . To us , it’s a nostalgia . There is still room for improvement but this does not affect the taste or the service .

Service -*****
If I could , I’d rate it higher . The service was excellent and generous . Trained or not , I’d say they have an air of motto around them which is to make the customers feel at home .

Affordability and cost – *****
My word ! I was expecting our bill to turn up above a thousand bucks and when I did take a look I was speechless . It costs only between 100 to 150 rupees per meal ! At times where a salad costs you more than a burger , you get a complete balanced diet for prices as low as that . If that isn’t a happier time for your wallet , I wouldn’t know what else to say .

Overall I would rate the restaurant 4.5 on 5 .
I’m amazed and I’m sure I’ll keep going back .
Do visit the hotel anytime you are in mysore . I will leave the link to their Facebook page below
https://m.facebook.com/MadhvaBhavan?rf=359310504179368

You will find their address and other customer reviews on their page .
I hope you enjoyed this post and was a help of some sort .

                      Till next time .

How to be a girly girl

Hello everybody!
First of all , this post has nothing to do with me judging people or other girls for being the way they are .
I was a tomboy till a couple of years ago and now I’m one of the most girly girl .
Often my friends and relatives are surprised as to how I turned over a new leaf and many come up to me asking how I did it or what happened and things like that .

First of all being tomboy isn’t something to be ashamed of and most importantly it is not a defect . You are who you are  so appreciate it . But if you genuinely want to be girly and experience that side of life then I appreciate it .

The first step to being girly is definitely not makeup . It’s just how you present yourself .
The same old clothes that you have can work perfectly fine .
You can use that oversized t-shirt and pass for being girly if you use the right accessories .
But if you want to have a new wardrobe /look then start deciding what kind of theme or colour palette you want it to be .

You could go for a cooler or brighter palette or just get things that appeal to you and work it just fine.
Invest in accesories . They transform any piece of clothing from being gah to gorgeous .

The first step all done the next thing is to behave girly . Not snobby or mean or foolish . Just have the right etiquette . Things that you might need to follow whilst wearing skits and dresses. 
It’s very simple –
♡Be gentle
♡Cross your legs when you sit
♡Have neatly manicured hands and pedicured feet.
♡see that you do not look dishevelled
♡watch your language

These are very basic .

The next is to take care of your skin and not just your face .
Give importance to skin care and try to detox often .

An important step is to feel inspired and know what you are doing .

Putting up things that inspire you around you in your bedroom or any place that you are sure to spend most of your time at , can help a great deal .
It instantly makes you feel a lot happier and inspired and then again you’ll never run out of ideas or give up of boredom .

Try these tips and let me know if they worked . I shall include more tips on being girly if you like this and is worthwhile .

Don’t forget to like , comment and share.
                      

                         Love y’all

Biotique hydrating cleanser

image

Hello everybody!
I’m back with a new post . This time about the biotique botanicals hydrating cleanser   .

Now if you don’t know what a cleanser does , it’s in the name . It cleanses yiur skin and pores thoroughly of all dirt and gunk .
You could use it to remove makeup or before washing yiur face when you’ve been out and about .
I use this once I’m back from school because let’s face it . Chemicals in the lab , the chalk dust and all the other gunk aren’t the best for your skin .

I know what you are thinking right now (if you’re new to all this )” why not just wash you face ? “. You could do that but the dust can sometimes seep into pores and cause breakouts , spots etc etc . In short bad skin . Cleanser in the other hand can even take care of that tan .

Now talking about the actual product I did not just buy it start writing a post . I’ve been through multiple cleansers from nivea,  oriflame and some other brands both from high street and drugstore . But somehow this cleanser is a lot more effective .

image

I have the bio berberry cleanser . There are other scents and extracts you can choose from . This is the first thing that I love about biotique ..its very natural and yet you have options to chose from .
The other options are
Bio papaya .
Bio seaweed.
Bio morning nectar .
Bio dandelion .

I chose berberry because it has more healing actions than the rest .
For example morning nectar is more moisturising , dandelion is a skin vitalizer.
This cleanser however is also blended with red sandalwood , fenugreek and almond oil to dissolve makeup and grime .
It does leave the skin soft and feeling fresh .

I have more sensitive skin and it can get affected too soon and has quick reactions to almost everything .But I find this cleanser extremely good .
It manages to take all gunk off my face and it feels super fresh yet equally hydrated like I don’t even have to wash or moisturise . But I do it anyway . .

It’s easy to use . Just squeeze a bit of cleanser onto a cotton pad or a washcloth and wipe over face and neck very gently .

Ever since I’ve started to use this which was I guess a few week ago , I’ve had zero breakouts , my spots are fading away and my skin does not feel as dry as it used to be . Somehow the other face masks that I use work better after I use this cleanser   .
So a big yes to the product . Try it out and let me know what you think or you can comment your favorite and tell why so .

                      Till next time .

How to feel better when sick

Hello everybody!
Well I am down with cold and fever and yet am attending exams and yes I feel the need to sleep but I get on quite well .

So I thought why not share  with the world some easy tips to feel better when sick (apart from medication ) .

First of all , stay clean .
As much as the thought  of shower sends goosebumps all over , believe me . Nothing will soothe you like a hot shower . You could also make a bath if you like or have a steaming hot little tub of water with eucalyptus oil or karvol plus in the shower and this is sure to soothe your sinus and clear the respiratory track .

image

Next important tip is to stay moisturised .
When you are sick , your skin feels dry , and sore and chapped lips are such a torture . It only takes 3 minutes . Have a moisturiser or a cold cream for skin and a petroleum jelly for your lips at your side at all times . You could also use tiny amount of oil or bio oil if you like .

Stay hydrated . I know drinking water is a big chore (it’s not ) . Have a nice bottle of sparkling water and drink it from time to time .
If you can get yourself to drink coconut water that’s way better . Coconut water is god made . You don’t actually need other electrolytes or energy drinks when you have coconut water at hand .

Some people buy packaged ones but it is better if you can get your hands on fresh coconuts .

Avoid dairy products. 

Try and eat light and soft food rather than binging .

The next thing is to make your room clean and cozy

image

When you are sick , you and everything  around you becomes dirty . You don’t want the goo and tissues all around you . Wear nice and soft pjs,  clean the room and your bed yourself or get some help but keep it clean . Light some candles , you could turn on dim lights or fairy lights . But that’s up to you . Everyone has their own definition of cozy .

Snuggle up in bed with some herbal tea and enjoy . Being sick is fun 😉 . (No it’s not ) .

Don’t stare at the screen for long . That is definitely not a distraction . Get some good amount of rest . Sleep .
    If you have trouble sleeping you could listen to asmr or classical or instrumental . Or just shut your eyes and go to bed .

           Hope this helps you out .
                         Till later .

Sprinkle of glitter diary 2016

image

image

image

Hello everybody!
I’m back with another post . This is more of a review cum my views in the new diary Louise pentland has come up with .
So let’s go through it step by step .
First of all it is a diary but you can as well customize it to be yiur planner or organiser or a simple diary . Using it as a personal diary can be a bit of a task because of the limited space to write in but it serves great as a daily planner .

There are a few interactive pages and need I speak about the quality ? Whenever you buy stationary one of the mist important things is the quality of the paper .
This diary has the best pages and it’s smooth and even which is very important as well .
The page where you fill in personal information is the most unique and different from other diaries I’ve used so far and that makes me love this diary more 🙂 .

Then again let’s be honest . We all judge books by their covers and Louise has done a wonderful job on the cover . It’s not too loud or too plain .
It’s subtle yet very girly and if you intend on putting it on a shelf or your bedside it is sure to add a touch and give a look .
How would you say it ? Very tumblry 😉
I will do an updated review because I have only filled in over a month and I have found it very handy .
This diary /planner of course is very handy and light . Yu can put it in your backpack or a handbag of standard size and it still wouldn’t take up much space .
If yu were to place sheets inside I’m very sure it wouldn’t fall off and get lost in black holes because of the pink elastic closure which keeps them safe .

This is my review so far . If you like it , share . And comment down below what you think of it . Toodles

Get Rid Of Acne Overnight

Hello everybody!

Pimples and acne are the most annoying thing ever. They also mean you have to spend ages in the morning doing make-up only to hide those hideous scars and spots.

So let me make life easier for you by listing out some tried and effective methods to get rid of them overnight.

  • Toothpaste

As surprising as it may sound , your regular toothpaste (not gel) can help shrink the size of pimples and zits overnight.

  • Ice

Yes. Just reach out to the refrigerator for once  not to eat but to get beautiful skin. Holding ice over the pimple reduces its size right then . It might take good 5-10 minutes of patience . But worth it.

  • Turmeric

download-20.jpg.jpeg  Make a paste of turmeric and place it over spots or affected areas. You can use either milk or water to make the paste.

  • Nutmeg and sandalwood

 

Make a paste of nutmeg and sandalwood with rose water or plain water and apply over affected areas. You can use either of them by themselves but nutmeg causes slight irritation and so to beat that I’d suggest sandalwood be mixed.

  • Banana rama

This is a mixture of mashed bananas , milk and papaya . This helps clear your skin on regular use

  • Honey mask

Apply honey all over your face and let it sit for good 10-15 minutes before rinsing that off.

  • Aspirin

Crush aspirin and make into paste. Again apply it like little spots over pimples and leave it for as long as you feel comfortable.

  • A paste of basil leaves and neem

It is self explanatory you could mix them with a mud mask or apply them by themselves. You can even buy them off shelves.

 

I hope this helps you and let me know of the tricks you use to get rid of pimples down in the comments.
