To be loved

Every now and then in life u meet someone who's special. You were not looking for this person, but well, they bumped into you anyway.

While you were not sad before they came along, they make you happy. And while you weren't lonely before they came along, they make you feel like you belong.

Little by little this person changes you- not because they want you to, because they love you as much for your flaws, as they love you for things in you that are right,

But because when u think of them, u think of all the things they do for you. And to you, and you want to match that. You want to be as good for them, as good as they are to you.

So you change, little by little. And as a result of this, you realize, that your happier than ever. He's added a bounce to your walk, a sparkle to your smile. Lights up your days and ur nights.

And when he leaves, its easy to loose it all. Why should you look happy, when ur not? Why should you still walk with a bounce?

And sink into depression, let the bad time sink in, and become mournful, despondent and all the other words that describe basic sadness.

Then you realize, that should he see you now, he would not recognize what he loved. And should you loose everything you gained when he was around, he'd become a footprint on the sand.

It would be as though he never was, and if u forget him, who will remember him? And if u forget him, how then will you know you were ever loved at all?

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?

There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105

Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
