Hi all!
I have rather been quite or haven't found the need to speak about who I am. Neither any description nor any identity revealed so far. Well with this amazing campaign by BlogAdda, I have finally found an opportunity to tell you guys a little about myself :)

Well if you're wondering what particularly has been the reason of this hidden identity? Let me tell you that I have always believed that there is a lot more to a person than any of what is mentioned in the descriptions or any such about me sections.

This Campaign by BlogAdda emphasizes this fact in particular and asks us (women) to take stand against one-dimensional labels to which each one of us have been subjected to some time or the other.

#UseYourAnd is my stand against the same. Well to brief you all, I am a young writer and have great interest in fashion. I love to keep myself updated with the latest in fashion. I am crazy about Bollywood, starstruck to quite an extent. I can dance to the craziest of Bollywood songs.
With this keen interest in fashion and writing I started this blog and not just that I also own a business, a small online business though. Trinket Treasures India (my business on Instagram) was an outcome of this love for accessories and fashion. On Trinket Treasures we (me and my friend along with whom I'm doing this) sell accessories and have plans to further grow this business.
Okay so that's about my interest in fashion and Bollywood. Before you start getting any ideas and try to categorize me under those one-dimensional labels let me also tell you all that I am a Finance Student. Finance was purely my choice. I haven't been forced into this or something in case that is what you thought.

I am a Finance Student And Fashion Blogger And Bollywood Fanatic. Because we women are not limited to just one thing.

This post is a part of the Cupid Games 2015 Campaign by Closeup -

The season of love has begun, I see everybody around me already making plans for Valentine's Day. You won't believe the other day when I was at a restaurant and I heard a couple, they would be in their late 60's planning their Valentine's Day. This made me wonder that is love all about showing and confessing? Is love all about Valentine's Day Celebration?

Love is a very strong emotion. It has a lot of power. It is not just said that loves makes a person blind but well in my opinion it takes away all the senses. Love is beautiful. I earlier used to think that it is not necessary to show every emotion. It is not important to let the world know and put up a show is what I always thought. I had my own reasons. But with time I have realized that love is not just about caring and all, it's a lot more. Yes I however still do go by the fact that love is in the heart and caring for the other is utmost important. But what I have realized is that confessing your love is equally important, for the world should know. (Kyunki Pyaar kiya toh Darna kya?)

Getting all inspiration from that cute old couple in the restaurant whose conversation I eavesdropped :P and from everybody around me. Well also from my sister who got married just a year back and has so much planned for her hubby for the Valentine's Day. I have decided that I am going to make this Valentine's Day big. Big for the two of us, big for our love and big because I want the world to know that hey I am not putting up a show its real love and shiz you know. I have planned to confess my love to my crush this Valentine's Day (Yayy, can't wait)

Here is what I have planned - I am going to take my crush to his favorite restaurant for a candle light dinner, as cliche as it may sound but I am going to stick to this old age formula that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So a dinner date with him would be perfect. Well since I have decided to go all the way out to show my love, the best is yet to come. I have decided to call all our friends post our dinner at the beach side (for he loves beaches) and I have decided to light a lantern which would say "I love you" and make a wish of togetherness and then watch it go up in the evening sky along with him. Sounds perfect, doesn't it? It may sound picked straight from a Karan Johar Film but this is how I would like my Love Story to begin, a typical Dharma Production it may be. That's about it :)

NOTE FOR ALL READERS: This post is purely for the above mentioned campaign and all the characters mentioned herein are fictitious.


Hello lovelies!
It's simple, you hate that pimple and how you wish you rather had a dimple. You want all the praise and wouldn't mind a few who chase those dimples and you would mind if someone even mentioned those pimples because it's simple you don't like pimple, you just don't like pimple.

Well that is everybody's story, no? Who doesn't like to be complimented about having a clear skin and not being told to do this and that and everything possible to get rid of those pimples. Mind it, nobody likes them. They are a part of growing up and they are natural. So what do you do? Don't take that criticism from any X Y or Z. Rather take this advise from Me :)

Pimples on ones face can lower your morale from 100 to merely 0, I am certain many of you all would agree with me on this. Be it in college, be it for any gathering, be it at work you don't like how the topic shifts from your work pace to those pimples on your face. However it is said that it is the inner beauty that is to be judged and not a person's outer being but how many actually implement this?

Okay let's be honest, say if you are to choose between two girls who are willing to come with you for a prom. (Readers, please note this is a fictitious example. The reality differs as you all know :P) Wouldn't you want to go with that pretty girl rather the one who has pimples, no it's not about being judgmental but it's just that if you were to make a choice, you would judge the outer beauty first. 

Not just that but nobody who has pimples likes them either. They too want to get rid of them. There is a lot that goes in for getting rid of those pimples like putting scrub, pack, diet, no oily food, yoga and blah and blah. 

Neem Face Wash - Product Image
Okay so I am not here to make any tall claims of this product giving you 100% results or anything of that sort but here is just a little piece of advise and a personal experience that I wish to share with you all.

This product, Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash is currently my personal favorite. I have plenty of reasons as to why I am all up for this product and why would I strongly recommend it. 

Talking about why this product would be best for anybody who has pimple problems or even suitable for a normal skin type simply because it has the power to fight germs, pollution and remove excess oil. 

This face wash is better than any other product that claims to be anti pimples because it has "Dadi Maa ka Nuska" Yes! Neem is a natural ingredient and I have had my Grand Maa telling me this n number of times, put neem for your pimples. To an extent she has even made a pack for me and has also made me neem juice. (Eww.. I threw more than half of it. Sorry Grand Maa but it was just not getting down my throat) But don't fear, Garnier is here. Along with goodness of nature Neem Leaf Extracts, it contains Tea Tree Oil Extracts which again is very beneficial for ones skin. Sounds perfect, doesn't it? No need to be having that bitter neem juice and you won't even get a pinch on your pocket for having to buy the best of the tea tree oil, this product has everything that your skin requires to get rid of those pimples.

The most common problems relating to pimples are-
  • Oily skin which looks so ugly, don't you all agree? 
  • Marks- you don't like how it hides the glow on your face because all that people actually notice are those marks
  • Redness- you want your skin to glow and be red but definitely not with pimples.
Here is a solution to all these problems it is this Garnier Pure Active Neem Face Wash. It not only removes the excess oil causing those pimples but also helps get rid of marks. Besides, this cleansing face wash removes all the germs causing these pimples (makes complete sense to cut the root of all problems, right?) Not just that but also helps fight pollution by deep cleansing all pores to remove impurities that pollution cause as Garnier understands that you like those outings with your bae as much as you love your skin so go ahead and have all the fun and when you're home don't forget to use this amazing face wash

People come, people go! All they leave back is just a show. This legend - The Great Indian Litterbug has left a mark everywhere (well literally). He had a big army, an army of millions of people. He led with the principle of no wall should be left clean and no road tidy. This legend left us many years ago but never let his memories go. His army still leads his chosen path, stronger than ever before.

This army is increasing its weapons with every soldier joining the army. If you are wondering what their weapons are and how destructive are they? They are litters on the floor, the spits on the wall and the waste on the road. With every soldier joining the army, the number of weapons are increasing and so is the threat. 

This army of Litterbug is a threat to the nation. Worried is our Government that these weapons of the army might have our nation at stake. This army attacks the nation every now and then, they are more dangerous than any terrorist groups. They are traitors. They are our own people wanting to cause destruction to their own land. They don't like how the Taj Mahal is still white and they would rather want to have two Red Forts than one. They want to paint the world red. They want their names to show everywhere, on the wall of Lal Qila and letting the world know that Ram still loves Leela.

While the Prime Minister himself has started a movement against this army of The Swach Bharat Abhyan and has nominated various influential people to join hands in this movement for a better and a cleaner India. Determined is the army, we won't let our legend die, we won't let The Great Indian Litterbug's teaching go waste. Long live our legend, long live his teaching.

Throwing garbage on the road, spitting on the walls, reading that sticking bills on the wall is not allowed is ignored by a spit, kids are taught to be careful of the banana peels on the road, why aren't the elders shouted at for throwing them on the road? Throwing those packet of chips and chocolates on the road because the dustbin seemed miles apart, is that the thing to do? Talk about civilization and westernization on one hand and litter from the other. Mind it, in western countries even the dogs are not allowed to pee on the road forget humans. 

Hey wait! Looks like the Government too has joined hands with this army? There is some "Garbar", No? Then why do the Police men spit on the road?

On a serious note, this Legend's army has to come to on end. The legend is gone, it's time his army is also eradicated. The PM has started this mass movement, make sure you participate too. 
Bye Bye The Great Indian Litterbug. You're gone now it's time we send your men home. 
Pledge for a cleaner India, a better living and a better India.

This post is a part of the IndiBlogger Camping in association with Quikr.Com (Bangalore)

The first thing that comes to anybody’s mind today when it comes to reselling, it would be Quikr. With my personal experience, every time my Mom thinks I am not wearing or using a particular thing she suggests why don’t I put it on Quikr?  Gone are the days when my Mom used to call some guy home to take those second hand phones and all of that but now she insists I rather put it on Quikr and get a Maximum Selling Price for the same, makes so much more sense no? These commercials have had a great influence on everyone’s mind and it has struck a right cord. Not just that Quikr has almost everything that one could possibly look for. The other day I was looking for a portable charger for temporary use and you won’t believe I got a second hand Sony Erosion portable charger for only INR 500/- and it is still working.

Talking about how Quikr would help anybody who is planning to relocate to Bangalore. Firstly, this site has almost everything. The best part is that it’s all available at such a reasonable price. For Bangalore being an IT hub and everybody being so tech savy looking up for things online would be no problem I am sure. Not just that but what I also found that people even put up job openings, tuition classes and other such helpful information which I am sure would be handy to someone who is planning to relocate.

When a person is relocating there are various things that one requires and to shift everything from ones hometown seems almost impossible. Despite all the care that one takes there are a few things that a person misses out on and then what does one do in an unknown land? Which shop sells that sofa you are looking for? Which shop would sell it at that price you want to buy it at?

Well, there is a one stop shop. No need for looking around and going about asking and now no more getting cheated by the local sellers. Quikr to your rescue. Quikr has a variety of products to choose from and at varying prices. You buy what you like and you get to negotiate with the seller and get the product at the best possible price. With the latest feature added you can now even chat with your seller and fix the deal on Quikr, without having to make those calls. Voila you get what you need quicker on Quikr.

Be it cushions that you require for your new house or be it sofa that you urgently require as you called for a house warming party without having to think much or simply if you're looking for any service or any sort of entertainment, no fear when Quikr is here.
So all those who are relocating to Bangalore do visit this site, I'm certain it will be very helpful :)
