06 Things To Do This Season.

If you won't follow your dream, who will?
Welcome to my blog! It was constantly raining since the last two days and I haven't seen the sun since ages. So, the monsoon is finally here! Today I am sharing 06 things you can do this monsoon. These aren't actually monsoon specific. You can do them when you just sit there trying to figure out what to do AKA when you're bored. All of these are aesthetically pleasing to me. Whenever I need to calm myself down, I do any of these. You can also take a nap. That's aesthetically pleasing too! Lately, I have realized that I make intros so long, so w/o further, let's get to the list!

01. Embroidery.
Lately, I found 'bout embroidery. I knew 'bout this artful thing but I forgot. Last week, I rediscovered it. I think I'll DIY my shorts and make a few embroidery patches. You can always look for some inspirations on Tumblr or Pinterest. All you need is a few colored thread rolls, a needle, embroidery loop, and a design. Don't worry if you don't have an embroidery loop. You can proceed w/o it. All you need to do is sketch the design on the cloth and stitch the whole design using various color threads. 

02. Paint Galaxies.
I used to think how tough this would be until I did it myself. Let me tell you beautiful, nothing's tough or impossible if you stop overthinking and proceed to the task, believing in yourself. I looked on Youtube for how to draw galaxies. It's all just 'bout playing with color but this is so peaceful. A couple of the galaxies are incomplete and sometimes it gets so messy but it's gonna stay with you and it's not 'bout coming with perfection, but peace in mind and a positivity.

03. Learn An Ancient Language.
This may sound really strange but learning an ancient language is a really amazing thing to do. It's challenging and at the same time, really fun. Maybe that's why it's on my bucket list too. I'd really like to learn Latin and Greek. And also I wanna learn a modern language, but I am not really sure 'bout it. Currently, I am learning Latin and it is so fun. It ain't as tough as I thought it would be and I am truly enjoying. 
04. Try Hidden Rainbow.
Hidden Rainbow has taken over the internet and this trend is total insanity. Hidden Rainbow is actually dyeing your hidden hair rainbow. It won't be visible when your hair will be down normally, but when you'll lift your hair or put them in a high bun. This is definitely not a monsoon thing but this is perfect for aesthetic Tumblr photography. You can also fake a hidden rainbow by dyeing your hair extension rainbow and sticking them to your hair.

05. Maintain Your Journal.
I have started so many journals but never continued one. This June I began with a journal and I am continuing it so far. It's actually a miscellaneous journal. I write what I feel like, I sketch, and doodle in the same journal. You can definitely have various journals for various themes/projects but if you're just starting or you have never been regular with your past journal(s), I'd tell you to go for one this time.

06. Meet & Fill Your Bucket List.
This is a really fun and inspiring thing to do. I always wanted to give a physical existence to my bucket list and this vacays, I finally did it. It ain't complete, I am still adding things and adventures I wanna go for on my bucket list. Learning Latin is one of the things and I am doing it currently. It is really inspiring. When you write your bucket list, you dream 'bout beautiful places where you wanna be and you get to know yourself a bit more. And when you cut the things out from your list, if feels really proud. "Don't just dream. Wake up and chase them". You give a physical existence to this quote.

DIY LIP SCRUBS: 03 recipes from your INDIAN KITCHEN?!

 you haven't come this far, to come this far 
Welcome to my blog! We take care of our face so much that we often forget 'bout our lips. I see some people with beautiful skin but dark and dull lips; this is definitely not my personal style. Well I don't judge anyone on their looks but hey, I believe in self love and so I highly appreciate people taking care of themselves since caring is a part of loving. So in today's post, I will be sharing 03 lip scrub recipes. Since everyone is doing lip scrubs and now it's nothing so special, I decided to make things a bit interesting. I bet all the ingredients are present in your Indian Kitchen (except vaseline). But if you are outside India and the traffic report says that I have a lot of non-Indian audiences, don't worry babe, I will list the alternative items too! 😉
One important thing, most of the recipes include not-so-tiny granules, so I definitely not recommend scrubbing your lips every day. I prefer and recommend to use any of these scrubs once a week.
So w/o further, let's dive in!

#01. Basically, all the recipes are so simple. For this one, you will need two ingredients, caster sugar, and clarified butter. I chose caster sugar since the regular sugar granules are bigger in size and hence it won't be much helpful w deep scrubbing. However, I find caster sugar more reliable for this task.
- Take appropriate amount of both the products. I prefer taking one part of each. 
- Mix them.
- Take little amount and gently scrub your lips. 

Caster sugar will scrub your lips and clarified butter (ghee) will moisturize. The best part about this scrub is it's edible!😋  and sweet 
 Since ghee is Indian AF, an alternative for it is olive oil and if you wanna go crazy, use whipped creme!😝

#02. The required ingredients are Semolina (Suji) and coconut oil. Now here you need to be careful while adding the oil. I like to take one part of suji and half part of the oil and work w them as usual. I have also tried semolina w ghee and it works amazingly well. The only con is that it ain't edible. So you need to be careful that suji won't get inside your mouth; but if it does, don't worry, after cleaning the scrub off gargle w water and spit all the intruder suji out! 😂

If you don't have semolina at your place, you can use salt. But this will taste horrible!  don't say I didn't warn you 
#03. You will need, caster sugar and vaseline. You can definitely play with the ingredients of the three recipes and create some new matches. I'd suggest adding the solvent really carefully and in small amounts 'cuz we don't want the scrub to be liquidy.  
So I take one part of sugar and a bit of vaseline and I mix them and scrub. 

Irrespective of the recipe, scrub your lips for 2-3 minutes. I'll suggest you to do this near your sink 'cuz this is so messy and no one wants scrub all over their floor, right? To take the scrub off, you can either wipe it off or wash your lips w cold water. Don't forget to moisturize your lips w your fav lip balm afterwards!
Also, I'd like to mention that these lip scrubs aren't storable at all. I always make them whenever I have to use them.
You can definitely play w the combinations and create new lip scrubs! If you do, share your new recipe(s) w me in the comments below or tell me which one is your fav among the three?
My fav among all is definitely the #01 since it's edible and really amazing! I also like using Semolina w ghee and it works well too! 

Here are all ingredients:
#01. Caster sugar (bura) and clarified butter (ghee)
        (alt.-olive or coconut oil)
#02.  Semolina (Suji) and coconut oil 
         (alt.-salt )
#03.  caster sugar and vaseline

How to: Slay Liner for ROUND EYES?!

 Eye contact is a dangerous, dangerous thing. But lovely. Oh, so lovely. 
Welcome to my blog! I am a round-eyed person and I love winged liner. Well, that definitely ain't complementary but nothing can stop me from making my soul up. If you are a round-eyed person, I gotchuu! I have been lining my eyes since quite long now but I have never been regular w liners. I have tried all the types: liquid, gel, pencil, and now markers. But among all, liquid liners are my fav for somethings so strange. Anyways, I have searched a few tricks on the internet and I have found a few on myself and they all are really helpful to me so I hope the same for you. 
So, w/o further, let's wing this world!

The most common trouble for round eyes is that the eyelids get covered by skin. So the eyeshades aren't visible when we look up or look in front which is so irritating. The skin that covers our eyelids pretends to be the crease, though it ain't the real crease. The actual crease gets hidden in the skin and ain't visible. As a result of all this, round-eyes have less space for lining and hence the liner looks too bold or sometimes merges into the (pseudo)crease. 
woaah! that all was so scientific!
Bold liners are so dramatic and definitely never go out of fashion. I have two liner looks that you can wear every day and slay the world!

#01. Winged Liner
Being a round-eyed, I always face problem drawing a continuous and sharp wing, since the skin folds come in my way. You can always use the tape trick for getting a sharp wing but I have been doing something else since a few times which works the same way. You will need plastic covers from eyeshade palette (b/w the colors and the mirror). If you don't have one, you can keep a plastic piece in your makeup supplies. 
-Use it as a guide and draw a line that will be the wing of your liner.
-Next, leaving little space from the end of the wing, drag it to the middle of your upper lashline. Make sure that you won't make the liner too thick. Go slow. Go in peace. You'll do it.
- Then tilt your head towards the outer side and connect the wing to your upper lashline slowly in little light strokes.
- When you are happy with the shape, fill your liner and you are good to go!

This is the most classy look featuring winged liner. At the end, don't forget to finish with mascara.
pin it for later!
#02. Wingless Liner
The process is kinda same as for winged liner, except for the wing.
- Start lining from the outer corner of your eye and then move slowly to the middle. But this time, the outer liner should be thin.
- Then tilt your head towards the outer side and extend the liner towards the inner corner of your eye but don't connect it to the inner corner.
- By this step, you will be left with some 'slit moon' kinda shape with thin liner towards both the corners and thick in the middle.
- Fill your liner and make some adjustments. Go slow. Go peaceful and you'll slay the lining art!

Don't forget to line your upper lashline with a black kohl (irrespective of the style). It will make your eyes look fuller and wider. And coating your lashes with mascara is just an additional step that will bring additional style.
