With the mega season of festivals and weddings on us, getting dressed up and putting on make up is a regular feature these days and I accept I love it :) However choosing from the more than 101 lipsticks that I have is a chore, and so what I've done is that I've zeroed down on 5 of my favourite lipsticks that can be worn on various occasions be it parties or weddings or any other special occasion this wedding/festive season. These also make packing for travel easy as I have just what I need when heading out of station.

As a family, we are all gadget freaks. My mother is one because my dad has always kept her involved in all his buys and discoveries for the last 35+ years, me and my brother because we possess the genes and the curiosity :), Prateek is one because he is married to me ;-), and Aryaa at the end of the day is born in the digital age. 2016 began with a new addition to our family of gadgets. The Asus ZenPad 7.0 Tab made its way into our house nearly 5 years after the last tablet had been bought, and we all discovered the convenience of using a smaller tablet. Over the course of the last 10 days, it has become a 'Family Tab' which means that it's used by the entire family but for different things that please each one of us. Each one of us have different uses for it during different parts of the day and that kind of syncs in perfectly with our lives.

If you guys follow me on Twitter, then you must have seen this cute little invite hamper that Whisper India sent to me for the Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout, and it meant to motivate women to take all those steps required to banish all the stupid taboos that are associated with our periods.
Thank u @Whisperindia for this motivating invite! You are damn right- #OwnThose5Days is the way to go! #Takethatstep pic.twitter.com/jLPJdQxgWU— Ritcha (@RitchStyles) December 18, 2015

The new year has begun and it obviously has to start with a bang. For me travel is what gives me peace, and so I kicked off the new year with a family road trip to Ganpatipule in the Konkan region of Maharashtra. It’s a really small coastal town roughly 7 to 8 hours from Mumbai with beautiful beaches, the renowned Ganpati temple and amazing local food to offer.
Creating memories is an essential part of all my trips, but by that I mean not just in my mind but also loads of pictures and videos. This trip I decided to test the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser phone on it's camera capabilities and let me tell you I have come back super impressed. Anyway the Asus Zenfone 2 Selfie phone had really left a mark on me but in a phone at 2/3rd of it's price too, Asus hasn't compromised on the features one bit. Once again Asus has wowed me with the picture quality, so much so that I left my camera in my room on most days. Let's start with my favourite picture from the trip with my better half trying to do a take on Gerua from Dilwale inspired with the scenic beauty ;-)

Such a big deal is made about those days of the month - for some it's 3, for some 5 and for some 7, but then what's the need to make an issue out of it? First of all I don't understand why is it called those days of the month when it can be called getting your periods or menses as it commonly known as, or simply getting your chums, after all we all exist thanks to this phenomena being in existence and so it has got to be a woman's best friend. It gave me Aryaa and I would not want it any other way. Secondly there is nothing so yucky or inauspicious about it, because basically you are pointing fingers at someone like me for something that is God given, and that just defies logic. It honestly is all about accepted practices and thoughts that are comfortably observed, because it has become a matter of comfort not to defy what has been said through the ages. It's time that everyone got out of that comfort zone to progress.

Not to mention a special thanks to my parents, family and friends for all the support that they gave me to move inches closer to my dream :) And finally a huge thank you to all my clients who have believed in me :)
