To tell you the truth, I have not understood myself completely as yet. Sometimes I feel like I am from another planet as I am extremely emotionally volatile, loyal to a fault sometimes and have some pretty high set standards for what constitutes 'moral' and 'ethical'. 

For course, that is not the best news in these times where circumstantial happenings often dictate right and wrong. But hey, I can still do some policing right.... errr.... not the radical and violent type of course.

It has always been 'my way or the highway' with me but I have got these tendencies somewhat under control these last few years. Growing old(er) of course helps, at least in some ways.
I am still prone to occasional bouts of erratic, inexplicable and irrational behavior though, a behavioral trait I have picked up after years of following romantic comedies and reading romance novels...

If you can keep up with my mood swings, I will be the friend that sticks around forever. Some of my oldest friends will vouch for that of course (do let me know if they don't!!) :P

On a lighter note, I love music (anything with good lyrics), movies and catching up with all my friends from time to time. I do tend to disappear from the orbits every once in a while, and I don't mean just meta-physically. During those times, just leave me a message. I always catch up on them once I get back. Oh and I almost always come back though, at least I always have up till now that is...

Not many people know that I'm a sucker when it comes to falling for the condemned, the lost, the unsalvageable, the critically demented and the 'that dude loves someone else' types of males...

You can stay in touch with me by following me on Facebook, Twitter or Google+. I haven't mastered the other social media as yet (oh, I think I forgot to mention that I am technologically challenged).

By the way, just as a footnote, I do take freelance assignments for writing, blogging and editing. Get in touch if you have any proposals or even feedback for that matter. I can't guarantee it, but I am sure I won't bite!

Please have a look at my newest blogging venture Cherry Articles too. Feedback appreciated!

How Rujuta Diwekar Broke 4 Of My Fitness Myths!

Yes, as always I am a lagger when following trends and I have only recently laid my hands on celebrity weight loss consultant Rujuta Diwekar's 'Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight' courtesy of a dear friend B. Yet, I must say, I did hear a lot about the person behind Kareena Kapoor's size zero figure but since I was never in the 'size zero' rat race, I had never really delved deeper into the topic.

Recently though, I stumbled upon Rujuta Diwekar's official website and Youtube channel and while I was surfing through the portals (one link led to another and then yet another), I learnt a lot of things about some misheld fitness myths that I had clung on to for all of these years. Now that Rujuta Diwekar has managed to convince me otherwise by busting some of my most 'holy grail' like precious fitness myths, it is time for me to test them out. Watch this space to know more about my sucess or failure in the near future, following her weight loss ad…

'7 Days 7 DIY Face Masks' Challenge For Soft, Glowing Skin

Meera and I were home alone, and of course we were loving it.

So this time, we’d decided to incorporate a little skin care into our daily fun activities and rituals. We took up a fun ‘7 days 7 DIY face masks’ challenge. The masks were all to be made from regular kitchen ingredients. We are 3 days done and still loving it. Well, at least one half of this team is seriously doing (and loving) the challenge, the other half, well, she’s sticking with fresh aloe vera! She does love her face packs and of course must have them as well!

So, I’ve started the challenge three days ago with Wednesday being my first DIY face mask day. Check out the first three along with the ones I plan to make and use for the 4 days to come.

Day 1: Cleansing, Tightening, Brightening Face Mask Ingredients:
2 tbsp Bengal Gram Flour (Besan)
1 tbsp Yogurt
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl till they form a thick paste consistency.

I applied it evenly all over my face and ne…

How Much Exactly Does An Epilator Hurt?

Are you tired of your daily shaves or biweekly waxes? I know I was, when I decided to look up epilators. Yes, epilators, the miracle of scientific equipment that offered people all over the world with a less time-consuming, less sticky, less icky and definitely less periodic hair removal solution. 
While God had subtly and sometimes not so subtly tried to show me the wonders of using an epilator (that was my conclusion from their constant visibility in electronics shop windows, online forums, reviews and friend’s referrals), I was always hesitant to try something that may or may not hurt more than waxing. I am most certainly a late bloomer in this industry, where just about everyone had tried the product and yet, here I was trying to find out if the product was actually something I could use. 

Yes, like a lot of other women, I am a measly, ‘knees shaking, heart-rate climbing’ coward when it comes to envisioning a pain that has no known parameter. Like for example, I do know that birthin…
