Winter Edition : Skin, Hair and Body Care Routine Using Chemical Free Products

Hello My Pretty Reader..!!

My favourite season is here..! Cool breeze, hot food and cozy bed sound perfect to me..! While we need layering of clothes to protect ourselves from cool breeze, our skin and hair also need layers of moisture to survive in the cold.

So, in this post I am going to share some of my favourite products I have been using lately to nourish my skin and hair. Do you know the best part? All these products are chemical and cruelty free.!

Let’s start with hair first because as I always say, hair is our crown.!

Hair :

Mygirlypedia.com

Cool breeze makes our hair dry and brittle. When hair becomes brittle, it will result in hair breakage. Hair fall is nothing less than a nightmare. For hair, extra moisturization is a must to keep it healthy. Aloe vera is very well known ingredient to help us get best version of hair and skin. I have a personal recommendation if you are looking for a good aloe vera gel. My recommendation would be from this homegrown brand called Deyga. Texture says it all..!! 🙂

You can buy your tub of aloe vera gel here.

Let me tell you how I use it.

  1. Dampen hair. Because when hair is damp absorption is better.
  2. Apply aloe vera to hair.
  3. Tie it up in a bun and leave it on for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Wash with regular shampoo and conditioner.

Aloe vera adds hydration and leaves hair super smooth and silky.!

Facial Skin:

Scrubbing :

Scrubbing is a process where we remove the dead skin cells to get soft healthy skin. If you have dry skin there is good chance that the scrub can leave your skin way more dry.

So I prefer to use my own homemade scrub when my skin is dry. Mix aloe vera and coffee powder and use it as scrub to scrub away dead skin cells. While coffee granules act as mild scrub, aloe vera makes sure my skin is moisturised.

Face Pack :

To add much needed moisture to facial skin, I again use aloe vera as a face pack. You can apply it directly on skin or you can use it as a base to your favourite face pack. Whenever I am feeling lazy, my go to face pack would be a thick layer of aloe vera gel. Wash off after 15 minutes.

When I am in a mood for extra pampering, I use aloe vera as the base and mix it with other ingredients like gram flour or fuller earth. Both the face packs work wonders.!

If you have acne prone skin, you can mix tea tree oil to your face pack. Make sure you dilute it as concentrated tea tree oil can harm your skin. If you are not used to using tea tree oil, I have a good alternative for you.

Mygirlypedia.com

This is something I prefer to use when I have breakouts. This is a tea tree toner. You can use it as a toner by spraying it on cleansed face. Also it works perfectly as a face pack base. Things I liked about it is that it gives cooling effect and helps in reducing the active acne. All thanks to its antibacterial property..!!

Checkout the Tea Tree Mist Here.

Body Care :

Just like facial skin, skin covering our body also requires equal care. To avoid dry flaky skin, we should make sure we use products that are moisturising.

Mygirlypedia.com

This handmade soap from the same brand has been added to my ‘good product list’ recently. Thing that made me love this handmade soap is the fact that it makes my skin all soft and supple after bath. My skin doesn’t scream for hydration soon after getting out of shower, which is the usual case.!

Checkout the Range of Handmade Soaps Deyga Has to Offer..!!

Also if you have pimples on body, you can apply a thin layer of aloe vera gel over it. Aloe vera gel helps to dry out body pimples and heals your skin.!

This is my winter skin & body care routine.

Do try this out and hope you will love the products as much as I do.

Happy winter…!!!

What’s Inside My Office Bag

Hello,

 

People who know me personally always see me with a bag. Especially people and female friends at office wonder what I carry in my huge bag. Some have even asked me multiple times..

 

So, here I have revealed what I carry in my bag to office..!!

 

Let me know which are the things you too carry, which you will carry after watching my bag and which things you think I should stop carrying..!! 🙂

This is Why I Do Not Use Facial Wipes

Recently, Kylie Jenner was slammed for advertising  makeup wipes for all right reasons.

For those who are not aware, Kylie has cosmetics as well as skin care range on her name. One of the products in her skin care is the makeup wipes.

She claims that the wipes remove waterproof makeup, matte lipsticks

In the promotion video she is seen advertising the product but we cannot see her using them on her skin. She just removes swatch of lipstick from her hand..! She can be seen blindly recommending the products to her followers.

While watching one of such promotional videos of her skincare range, what caught my mind was her sentence “I have used some yummy products to make these”…

a. If they were really yummy, these would be edible.

b. If they were that real yummy, why don’t Kylie use them on her skin to demonstrate.??

Forget about Kylie, let’s talk about makeup wipes. There are ‘n’ number of brands that have released makeup wipes in the market. Are they really good??

Just to give a brief background, makeup wipes/ cleansing wipes/ facial wipes, as name suggests they are used to wipe away makeup products.

How to use?

You need to rub the wipes against your facial skin.

It is said that the wipes have ingredients that melt down the makeup products.

 

Are they reusable?

No..! They are for one time use.

 

Does they really efficient?

Answer is NO.

GettyImages-531459359

Some facts:

  • Makeup wipes are not at all ultimate cleanse. You have to wash or cleanse with other product after using makeup wipes.
  • Makeup wipes do not melt all sort of makeup products. So 100% not efficient in cleaning the face.
  • Rubbing the wipes against skin is not at all recommendable. The friction causes damage in the wrong run. Girls with sensitive skin, please stay away.!
  • You need to put good amount of pressure while rubbing the wipes. It is said that this pressure applied can push the makeup products inside facial pores instead of cleaning it. If not cleansed again with other cleansing product, this will result in breakouts.
  • As I said, makeup wipes have certain ingredients in them that are meant to melt makeup. But, there is good chance that those ingredients are not meant for your skin..!

 

Makeup Wipes are not good for environment.

Makeup wipes may look like they are made of clothes. But in reality they have plastic content in them. You already know, plastic is not biodegradable. Hence, if you don’t want to contribute to the already increasing global environmental changes, please stop using wipes.

 

Now you know why Kylie is being slammed for her marketing gimmick. She is smart enough to know these facts about wipes and that’s why she did not use them on her skin. Not even to advertise..!! She just used some ‘yummy’ words to sell them.

So, to keep your skin and our planet clean and happy, please stop using makeup wipes..!!

If you are using makeup wipes and do alternative, go for a good cleanser. If you have dry skin, go for oil based cleanser. Water based cleanser is good for oily skinned beauties. Normal skin girls are blessed ones..!! They have plenty of choices to choose from..! 🙂 For this change, your skin and mother earth will thank you.. 😊

Essentials to Carry in Your Gym Bag

Hey Beautiful,

As much as I ask my readers to love themselves the way they are, I also always suggest to try and discover their best version. When I say best version, it’s definitely both mentally and physically.!
To look and feel good, if you are one of those who are regular at gym, this post is going to help you.
Since I also love sweating out in gym, I have some tips to share, with respect to the gym bag I carry. Let me tell you the essentials inside the bag which will help you organise your gym bag for your next gym session.
  • Gym clothes:

IMG_20191108_160612__01

I used to wear normal track pants to the gym. One of my dear friends suggested me to replace them with gym wear and see the difference.  I did and to my surprise, it not only makes me look good while giving me the comfort, but also has made me more regular to the gym. I don’t know the exact psychological reason behind this but gym clothes bring more discipline. They are like uniforms to the gym haha.
  • Deodorant/ Perfume:

I like to use a good perfume before hitting the gym as well as post the gym session, once I am all freshen up. Nobody wants to kill their gym buddies with bad body odour. So using a good perfume will help.
  • Water bottle:

Some like to take short breaks in between the exercises, have some water to keep themselves hydrated. Whereas some like to drink protein shake post working out, a bottle surves these purposes.
GettyImages-woman-drinking-water-workout-Halfpoint
  • Face wash:

Washing your face before the gym session is suggested. Especially if you have makeup on, you need to let your facial pores breath by removing makeup. This lets skin sweat without clogging pores.
Not everyone is comfortable or have a facility to take shower post workout. In that case, please make sure you at least wash your face. The sweat and accumulated dirt (if you have habit of touching your face frequently, you are transferring all germs from gym equipment to your face. ) can cause breakouts.
  • Hand towel:

I have seen people who leave the gym equipment all covered in their sweat. Ewww. We need to keep our sweat from dripping/ to keep the equipment clean enough to be used by someone after us, we got to carry a small towel to the gym.

  • Pair of shoes:

A good pair of shoes is a must for the gym. Especially if you are using the cardio machines. They give you good grip and enough motivation to look good and workout well in the gym..!
  • Hair accessory:

Ahh if you have long hair you know the pain. We need to keep extra rubber bands/ clips to keep the hair away from sweaty face.
eoVA38
  • Bath Essentials:

If you are going to take bath immediately after working out, always carry your own shampoo/ soap. I have seen people borrowing their friends shampoos and soaps. Shampoos, I can be still ok with, but soaps??? Nooo..!!!! #Unhygienic
  • Makeup bag:

Ahmmm when I say makeup bag I am not asking you to carry those makeup palette of yours..! Just the essentials. A good day cream, kajal may be. In case you are going out somewhere or going to gym in between office hours (if you are thinking who does that..!! Spoiler alert..!!! Me..! ) a small bag with essentials would help. Umm did I forget to mention lipstick???! Carry one please.
  • Earphones:

What’s more better than listening to some catchy music to get that extra boost to workout..!!! Carry your earphones, turn on the playlist and workout honey… 😉
I could think of these things as of now, while I am writing this I mean typing this down.
Hope this post helps you sort your gym bag.

Everything You Need to Know About Piercing

Piercing, my second favourite body art. First being, tattoos..!!

Well, I have always loved accessories. Getting my ears pierced to flaunt some nice pieces of jewellery was in my list and I did get pierced. Let me share my experience and things I learnt through it.

  • Types:

There are two types of procedures to get pierced.
a. With piercing gun
b. With needle

Let me tell you more about them.

a. Piercing gun:
Here, they use this tool to puncture your ears. The earring with sharp end is placed on the gun. Keeping ear in between, the tool is pressed just the way a gun is trrigered.

Pros:

  • It’s very quick.
  • Doesn’t hurt.

Cons:

  • Compared to needle piercing, this method is quick and thus it damages skin cells more.
  • Gun needs to be properly sterilized to maintain good hygiene.

b. Needle:
This is oldmethod. A needle is used to puncture the body part to pierce the ornament.

Pros:

  • It’s slow and thus very less damage to skin cells.

Cons:

  • Compared to gun, it’s a bit time consuming.
  • It’s slightly painful than the gun one. But totally bearable.

My first piercing was done using piercing gun. (Which costed me 400 INR for both the ears.)

Second is done using needle. (Total cost was 1200 INR for both the ears. You will know why it was expensive in next points. )

Now that I have experienced both the types, let me share my experience with you.

  • Hygiene:

Make sure you get your piercing done from a good place. Hygiene being the primary point to take care, make sure the gun or the needle used are thoroughly sterilized.
During the first one, I was so excited that I didn’t do my homework about the piercing and care etc. By the word of mouth I just knew that the gun piercing is quick and painless. When I look back, I remember the person at the studio hadn’t even sterilized the gun..!!!
Second one as I said was done by needle. The needle was a new one, removed from sealed packing in front of me. The one who did my piercing had wore fresh pair of gloves. The earrings which were used post piercing were also sterilized. Once the piercing is done, the fresh piercing was cleaned using sterilizing solution.

  • Jewellery/ Ornament:

Ornament they put post piercing is something they give you. It’s included in the total charges they charge you for the piercing. Because the ornament should have a specific thickness. The choice of ornament will be totally yours. But make sure the studio/ shop has good number of choices to make. For the first piercing, I had been offered studs. For the second, I wore theses half rings. Theses half rings are easier as compared to the studs. Because studs hurt or poke while you sleep on them. But theses rings won’t. Also moving rings is easier as compared to studs. Studs usually have press locks. Which usually tend to become loose. Only con I can think about half rings is that the hair strands tend to stuck in them. If you happen to pull hair up to tie the bun, heavy chances are that you will be pulling your earrings along with them. Thanks to hair that gets tangled in half rings.

Bonus Tip:

The ornament or the earring in my case, should not be removed for a month. Reason being, the piercing ultimately which is a wound, can heal real quick and the hole might gets closed faster while it’s not healed completely. One of my friends had removed the earring in the night while the wound was just a week old. She couldn’t put it back in the morning because the hole or the wound was almost covered.

  • Post Piercing Care:

Post piercing care should be taken seriously. You got to wash the pierced area with warm salt water twice a day. This will make sure there is no bacterial infection.
Bonus point – Please wipe the salt water. If it gets accumulated, it will leave dark mark. If there is moisture, there is good chance you might get minor infection.

  • Healing Process:

You got to move the pierced ornament while the wound is healing. This will make sure the ornament doesn’t get stuck in the wound and helps in healing too. Bonus tip here is – make sure you have applied oil while you move the ornament. While it’s dry and if you try to move it, it is going to hurt more as it gets stuck when it’s dry.

Bonus Tip:

In the process of applying oil and moving the ornament, the earring/ the ornament might get lose. Especially the one with pressed lock. In this case, chances are high that the ornament just fall off. Take care of that..!!! I had experienced this in the middle of a night, while the wound was couple of weeks old. I gathered the courage and put it back even though it was hurting so much. I am so glad I did because if I had thought of putting it back in the morning, the hole might have covered up.! Then I had to get new piercing done at the same place all over again.

  • It hurts:

Every time when the ornament is pulled or gets stuck (in my earrings’ case, they get stuck with hair/ cloth), hurts. Till the time it heals, we will have to bare this inconvenience.
When I had the piercing done with the gun, it had hurt me real bad. Trust me, there were nights when I had though I will just remove it. I had also developed infection during the first piercing/ gun one.
My second one has been a good one. No much pain, no infection as such. #touchwood.

But I must say one thing, no matter what the final look or the vibe theses piercings give, makes it all worth the pain and care we take. It’s not only a symbol of fashion, but also an identity. To shop, wear, mix and match earrings and studs is something I have fallen in love with.

Hope this helps you to choose right method of piercing and all the care you need to take for that one month, while it heals.

Here is a chatty video where I have shared my experiences. Also, flaunted my piercings. Wanna see my piercings I spoke about??? Watch them here.

Salt Rooms – A Salt Based Therapy for A Healthier You

In my last post about skin care, I had mentioned how sea water can help you improve beauty and health. Today let me introduce you to a therapy based on salt – Salt therapy.

What is salt therapy???
It’s not a new bee in the world of therapies. Salt therapy is been used by people since more than 100 years. This old and natural therapy is for curing health issues and improving skin. Voila087316ae87de90471ac6d8b9d7852851--natural-salt-himalayan-pink-salt

 

Where is this therapy conducted???
Salt therapy involves room made of dry salt particles, hence those rooms are commonly called salt rooms or salt caves. The ceilings, floor and walls are made of dry salt blocks. A specialised Halo generator is used to grind Pharmaceutical Grade salt into minute breathable particles. These minute particles are dispersed into the salt room. The logic here is, as and when you inhale this salty air, it is going to benefit you, your skin as well as your overall health.

How is it done???
Those who wants to undergo this therapy got to sit in one of these salt rooms. (Sounds like an easiest therapy we have heard of…!!!)

While some choose to read inside the room, some like to enjoy a good massage session. Some might love doing nothing but relaxing.

Salt is very powerful thing not just to make any dish perfect, but also to make our body work perfectly.

As the dry salt air is more powerful than the moist one, salt therapy makes use of dry air to heal the body.

How long is this therapy conducted?
As the salt concentration is high inside the room, the session lasts for 15-20 minutes. You can stay inside the room for 15-20 minutes and breath deeply just like the way you breath while doing Yoga.

Why Sunscreen is A Must For A Great Skin

Sunscreen, something which is very very essential in order to protect your skin from harmful sunrays. Protection against sunrays doesn’t really mean you are protecting skin from getting tanned. It’s way more than that.

When it comes to sunscreen, it’s not just another cream or a lotion you are applying. Because it has some of its own points to be taken care of.

Let’s see one by one. As I’m pretty sure there are some basic questions you might be having in your mind about sunscreens.

Let’s start with very basic. Major types of sun rays against which we use sunscreens.

What is UVA?

Ultraviolet rays A. These are long wave rays which can penetrate inside the skin even into the deepest or thickest layer…!!!

What is UVB?

Ultraviolet B. These are short ways and mostly cause damage to upper layer of skin.

Why do we need to use sunscreens?

  • For protection against tanning
  • Skin burns
  • Skin cancer
  • To slowdown the process of aging.

Which is more harmful, UVA or UVB?

UVA is way more harmful. Because UVB burns your skin, whose results are reversible. Whereas UVA causes permanent aging if skin which leads to skin cancer.

When is the time in the day where we need to use sunscreens the most?

It’s said that between 10 am to 2 pm, the sun rays are strongest.

What is SPF?

You must have seen SPF written on sunscreen. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It’s the way we measure how much the sunscreen can protect you against UVB rays.

For example, if your skin burns after ten minutes of exposure to sunlight, the SPF 20 will let you be in sun light for approximately 200 minutes without getting your skin burnt. That is 20 times more than usual. This is why people prefer sunscreen with more SPF value.

What is minimum SPF that is recommended?

Experts recommend sunscreens with at least SPF 15.

Important point for applying sunscreen.

As I said, it’s not just another cream. You need to apply on face and on body parts which are exposed to direct sun, 15 minutes prior to stepping out. Yes, it needs some time to settle and start working.

Is applying sunscreen in the morning is enough to get protected?

No. Experts say that we need to apply sunscreen every couple of hours for complete protection.

Is it necessary to apply sunscreen while you are indoors?

Yes. Dermatologist recommend using sunscreen even while you are indoors. Because if it’s really hot outside, chances are high that sunrays can cause damage to your skin even while you are not exposed directly to the sunrays.

Should we really apply sunscreen on winter or rainy days??

Doctors say yes. Even when it is cloudy out there, sun rays can still damage your skin cells. 20% to be precise. 20 out of hundred sun rays can still penetrate and damage your skin even when it’s cloudy. Applying a layer of sunscreen should be helpful throughout the year.

What is PA++?

If you check a sunscreen package, you might find this written on it – PA++. Do you know what it is? It’s the protection grade of UVA rays. These are the rays which are responsible for tanning of your skin. Thus more PA++ content, more protection from getting tanned in sun.

What is the difference between PA+, PA++, PA+++???

PA+ is basic one. Where sunscreen can protect your skin from darkening between the scale of two to four.

PA++ can give you moderate protection against sun rays. Between four to eight.

PA+++ is the highest grade available. This is recommended to those who get exposed to strong sunrays. The scale of protection being more than eight, you can count on this if you don’t want to get tanned.

How to apply sunscreen?

Once you are done with day makeup, apply a good amount of sunscreen as a last layer. Don’t forget to apply on your neck, hands and feet which are exposed to sun.

What are the types of sunscreen?

You get sunscreen in the form of cream, lotion, spray and gel. Choose the one which suits you the most.

How to protect your skin while you are outdoor and which involves water sports?

You just have to chose water resistant sunscreen with high SPF and PA+++.

So, these were some of the questions which were asked to mygirlypedia by some of my beautiful readers. Hope this helps you.

Things Which Are A Must In Your Handbags

Hello girls,

Some of you had asked me for a quick list of ‘handbag essentials’. So here are the things which I think are essential for our day.

Purse/Wallet:

Ahh world runs by money at the end of the day. It’s nearly impossible to survive without a wallet. So, yes, the cute little pursw or wallet comes first.

Makeup Pouch:

In order to be ready for last minute plans, for regular touch ups, here we have this tiny little guy called makeup pouch. I usually have my foundation and eye makeup basics like kajal, eyeliner and mascara. Needless to say, being lipstick lover, I always always carry minimum 2 shades of lipsticks. One for office wear and one for party types. You know, those sudden dinner plans…!!!

Hair accessory:

Especially, if you are long haired gal, you definitely can’t survive windy day with your hair left open. Even on bad hair days, tying your hair up can just help you feel better. So, I always carry hair stick with me. In case, you wanna know how I use them to tie my hair, watch this video.

Hand cream:

Sitting in air conditioned environment can indeed make your skin and hair dry. Hands being the most exposed part of our body, they tend to get effected more. Thus a good hand cream can help you maintain the much needed moisture. I love trying different hand creams. But one from the brand Fab India is my favorite, like forever.

Lip balm:

Just like hands, lips need good hydration too. So, applying good lip balm once in a while is necessary. I love this juicy balm from the brand the body shop.

Pocket Tissues:

I used to carry hanky. But I end up misplacing them. So, I opt for these tiny, travel friendly tissues.

Hand sanitizer:

We end up with hell lot of germs on hands throughout the day. Before consuming food or touching face, it’s preferred to sanitize your hands. Thus I carry this mini sanitizer always.

Sanitary pads or tampons:

Ahh those days. They can come anytime. It’s always better to be prepared. So carrying sanitary pads or tampons can be a good thing to avoid inconvenience.

Perfume:

It’s always a great idea to carry a travel size perfume with you. Because you want to smell good even after traveling in public transport or after a long day at work.

Mint:

Those stinking odor is such a turn down. To avoid getting embarrassed, carry mint.

Scarf:

I always carry a thin scarf with me. This can be used to cover your face and hair, to save them from pollution and sun rays. Plus, in case you encounter some wardrobe malfunction, this scarf can be of some use. You never know.

So this is my list of ‘must things’. Hope this helps you organise your handbag.

RABF – App That Let’s You Rent A Boy Friend. Wait, What???

Hello World,

Orrr rather hello crazy world….!!!

Ahhh you must be thinking why am I calling the world crazy. Trust me, after reading the next couple of paragraphs below, you are going to utter the same.. or even more…!!!

You must have heard about companies or mobile applications that lets you rent cars, clothes etc. Which I know are for some extent necessary in some situations.
Well, the crazy news I heard recently is about the mobile application that was launched in Mumbai and Pune on 15th of August.If you are thinking about this application is for social cause as this was launched on the independence day, ummm drop that thought. Even though the app developers might think it is for a social cause, I definitely don’t think so.

This application is called as RABF. Which stands for (be ready to read and face a brain freeze…!!!) Rent A Boy Friend…!!! (Like, seriously???)

So, this app is targeted the youth(read it as girls), who are under depression or suffering due to loneliness. Through this app, you can rent a boy friend. You can take him out for lunch and spend ‘quality’ time with him..!!!

Want to know further??? Well for FYI, when you opt for renting a guy (you can read it as a boy friend), there will be some good number of psychologists. Who will test you and they will let you know whether you really need a boy friend or not. By the way, this is definitely not a free session. For consultation you got to spend 500 INR. If the doctors/psychologists say yes, then you can choose boy friend from a list of guys, according to your ‘budget’.

PS: Screenshot courtesy, play store.

Yes of course there is a budget factor dude. If the guy is not a ‘model’ type (you know what I mean), then per hour you got to pay 500 INR. If you want good looking, models as your ‘rented’ boy friend, then be ready with 2000 INR per hour. If you have ever dreamt of roaming around with a celebrity boy friend, gal you need to pay 4000-5000 INR per hour. (Just to keep you grounded, celebrity doesn’t mean, you get to roam around with Hritik Roshan.)

I hope you still there…!!! haha. I have survived after checking details on the news. I hope you did too.

Post getting to know this app, ONLY one word came to my mind – “Why???” (Same tone the way Chandler says.)

Like seriously????

This is my honest opinion:

They say, men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. Men can never understand women. Well, this seems to be an excellent example.

Why on earth, girl with depression chooses boy over money…!!! Spending money on such app, to get boy, whom you barely know. Who I can bet is not really interested in your crap. Who is ultimately earning money at the end of the day is definitely not around you for your ‘company’. He is not going to be with you like forever.

Forget about the healing, what about your safety??? Our country has been declared as the number one country when it comes to the most unsafe place for a woman. What if the hired boy friend of yours, makes you the ‘news’ on the next day’s newspaper???

I mean with the amount of money you spend ‘hiring’ these men, you can do hell lot of things gal. Feeling depressed??? Get out of your home. Go shopping (my first favorite thing to do with money when sadness try to conquer me. Ahh it’s a therapy. ), donate money to someone who is in need. Trust me, sometimes the smile you bring on their faces can make your heart smile. Help animals. Feed them. The gratefulness in their eyes can make your soul dance with happiness. Take yourself out on a good dinner. Food is magic. A good food can make your day a happier one…!!!(I don’t know who all will agree. But I know my baby sis will definitely agree. We both order good dinner, in order to end our sad days on a happier note. It totally works for both of us. ) Go out and try some adventurous sports, travel, make memories.

You tend to make wrong decisions and try anything and everything to feel better, when you are emotionally high. Depression is something sensitive and I am glad people are opening up about it. I really hope none of my beautiful readers are going through any serious emotional pain. If so, I am always there to listen. 🙂

As per one of my friends, it might be a good option for some girls who are suffering from loneliness. Yes, I might not have come across such gals. But thats ok. All I can say to such girls is to learn self love. That will definitely help them in long run.

Your life, your choice. But just make sure you don’t regret your choices.

Be wise, stay safe. Love yourself. Andddd shop till you drop. Stay happy gal. Life is short to be nothing but happy…!!! 🙂
