As a marketing professional – advertising and marketing campaigns by brands are always of an interest to me. I distinctly remember Whisper’s “Touch the Pickle” and “Like a Girl” campaigns. These campaigns created an alternative conversations around menstruation and female hygiene urging women to break free from period taboos. The brand continuously propagates how women should feel comfortable at all times. Recently, they launched the ‘New Whisper Ultra Soft’ that claims is twice as softer. They hosted a beautiful event for bloggers where Radhika Apte and Dr. Nandita Palshetkar, talked about how important it is for women to be comfortable during […]

In my previous post, I reviewed the Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub. In this post I will detail out my experiences with the Purifying Neem Pack which I have been using for over a month now. Let me admit it – I feel guilty of not taking enough care of my skin. This doesn’t mean that I do not use any skin care products. No matter what creams or lotions I use, I always have this feeling of not doing enough for the skin and end up using too many products. This is why over the past few weeks, I have […]
Himalaya Herbals as a brand has always been known for creating indigenous quality personal care products in India. What makes the products unique is the blend of Ayurveda with modern science.

The need to connect with nature in all its true glory is important to me and it was time for me for a vacation. A break from the routine, the madness, the fatigue and all the chaos. What the trip turned out to be was more than what I had […]
We lead stressful lives. We stress about so many things; the important decisions in life and also the small nagging things in our daily lives. We need to hit pause; stop and stare at the roses to give ourselves some moment of consideration. We need to recharge our batteries. That’s why visiting a spa once in a while is essential. We need to relax our body, calm our minds and replenish our energies. Relaxing is considered as an indulgence of sorts. It is as vital as daily sleep. Why do we ignore our bodies and work ourselves to pain? With […]
We all love to pamper ourselves once in a while. A me only time at a spa not only helps us unwind but it also rejuvenates us. So when I was recently invited by Spa by JW, Sahar to review their summer specials, I was ecstatic to indulge myself in some spa goodness and I told myself that this is exactly what I need considering the back to back travel and hectic work life during the past few months.
