the most handsome man in the world

Everyone wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant. ~Cary Grant
with Audrey Hepburn in Charade

 
with Grace Kelly in To catch a thief

You guys know, I love old movies. The men always looked dapper in their perfectly ironed suit. Women looked elegant, no flying hair on sight. I have been watching lots of Cary Grant movies. I think he is the most handsome man I have ever seen in tv. And that voice! He had a perfect tanned skin and sexy gray hair. I watched movies like Charade, To catch a thief, Dreamwife, An affair to remember and so on. The man had a perfect comedy timing. Although born in England, his accent was not quiet mid-atlantic. If you ask me, it was just perfect. I love his dimpled chin. I just can’t get over how beautiful this man was. 

Who in your opinion is the most handsome man, besides your better half and dad ofcourse! Thanks so much for reading guys. Happy American independence day in advance!

Don't be serious, be sincere..

Dear readers,
I have missed you. Believe it or not, I did not have internet for a week. It was actually quiet refreshing. I painted a glass, even drew a sketch and did yoga. Internet gives me no time to do all that! Anyways, I stumbled upon this speech by Chetan Bhagat and I absolutely love it. Reading it made me feel so much better. 
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I will visit your blogs and do the same. As always, thanks for reading and stay positive and happy!

review: henna n placenta conditioning treatment

Hi guys! Few days ago, I bought this hair conditioning treatment at walmart. It is called the henna n placenta conditioning treatment. I have always been familiar with henna. Back home we used to grow henna and put it in our hair. It gave a subtle red/maroonish color and made the hair extremely silky and soft. So, when I saw the word henna, I had to buy it. And it was only a dollar. I thought I would give it a try. My hair is very dry and wavy. It has become dull and lifeless. I do use olive oil before washing my hair few times a week. But, that is not much helping. I want to try coconut oil, just have to figure out where to buy it.
 
The direction says to shampoo your hair and put this conditioner. I did that and I actually waited 15 minutes to rinse my hair. I liked the result. My hair felt super soft and silky. There were no tangles or hair frizz. I am thinking about conditioning my hair more because my hair used to be very healthy. But, these days it is just dry and lifeless. I want to change that.

What kind of hair treatments do you guys use? How do you keep your hair healthy?

Tribal maxi dress and mocha ..

This is my favorite drink, mocha frappe!
I was craving for junk food today, mcdonalds to be specific. So we head over there, ate and went to the mall to walk off the calories. We went to walmart after that, bought groceries and came back home. Boring, I know! Oh ya, I deep-conditioned my hair today. I will make a post of that tomorrow, maybe. Oh, by the way I am wearing most of the things from forever21 today. I ordered few things from them last week. I was dying to wear a maxi. I was surprised that the length was actually perfect for me, not too long. Isn’t that glasses necklace just darling, I love it so much. I got another bicycle one too. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend.

15 minutes yoga to kick off your day!

Hi all! I can’t believe I am writing after 5 days. I have been feeling very un-inspired. I think the heat is slowing me down. Do road constructions on summer bother you? I mean, you get so excited for summer and want to go out. And, the roads are all dusty and crazy.

Anyways, let’s get to our topic. I love yoga and I wish I would do it everyday. I will admit that I am lazy and get distracted very fast. I was looking for a quick fix yoga routine that you can do if you are busy, or just lazy to do the whole yoga regime. I found these 10 yoga steps that works on the whole body. These are the 10 best yoga for women according to women’s health magazine. Start your day with these yoga for 15-30 minutes and I promise you will feel great. I have also experienced that, doing yoga right after taking a shower feels heavenly. You will feel very refreshed and happy. Here are the steps:

1. Child's pose

2. Downward facing dog

3. Warrior pose

4. Plank pose

5. Fierce pose

6. Tree pose

7. Garland pose

8. Boat pose

9. Bridge pose

10. Half lord of the fishes
I hope this was helpful to someone. Have a happy week ahead!

{beauty} Product I love at the moment – Aveeno stress relief moisturizing lotion

Bonjour! I have to tell you about this product. I love it so much. Couple of days ago, I went to walmart and realized that I was running out of my body lotion. Most of the time, I get them from bath and body works. This time, I was browsing products from Aveeno section and my eyes caught this moisturizing lotion. It was the Aveeno stress relief moisturing lotion.
I am quickly becoming Aveeno’s fan. I talked about this before as well here. I love the fact that they use natural ingredients such as soy, oats, feverfew, wheat complex, and so on. The thing that caught my attention on this product was the stress relief part. The product is made with lavender, chamomile, and y-lang y-lang. These ingredients can provide a calming and relaxing experience.
The instructions say to apply this moisturizing lotion right after shower to feel relaxed and calm or anytime you want. I feel like it works best after you take a long hot bath. The smell is not overpowering at all. It is quiet faint and lingers around you. First time I used it, was when I took a hot shower. I applied this all over my body and I felt like I was meditating in a beautiful secluded mountain. Ok, that is overstating! But, it really felt good.  And, the lotion is very moisturizing. It leaves the skin very soft. It states that it moisturizes for 24 hours, I believe it. The product cost $10 for 18 fl. Oz. That is a great price.
I hope this was helpful to someone out there, or to lot of you. If you have used this product, let me know how you liked it. And, thank you so much for the positive comments on my loot post. Thanks for liking and following my blog. I follow all my followers who have their own blog. Thank you for reading!
