Reliance is bringing Sephora to India!!

Sephora Store, Briarwood Mall, Ann Arbor MichiganImage via Wikipedia
Once in a while, I do turn to the business section as well of TOI. Ideally I should be reading Economic Times everyday, but I generally get way laid by the Bollywood gossip section of Mumbai Mirror.

Last night I castigated myself for being so uninformed about, well, everything related to the business world & thought if not ET, I should at least read some TOI.

And what do you think caught my eye first:

LVMH co Sephora in JV talks with Rel Brands

Sephora is in talks with Reliance - they might be coming to India soon if the Joint Venture goes through. I hope this happens sooner than later. I can already see myself browsing their counters for Urban Decay & Cover Girl :-D

On an unrelated note, if you enjoy bollywood gossip as well, do visit Bollywood Basket Blog (you can find the link to it in my blog roll). It serves the hottest insider gossip in the most candid, bitchy manner. I actually enjoy it a lot (ok, now don't go judging me, I know you'll like it too).

  15. Love your blog. This post made me realize what a mall junkie I am. I actually recognize the mall where the Sephora in the photo you posted is located. It's a small midwestern town (not NYC or something fun) so it is really quite sad that I have been there enough times to recognize it in a photo... ;)

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
