5 Must Have Beauty Products for Working Mothers #WorkingMomsGuide

Hiya everyone, hope all of you are doing well. I know I have been missing from this space lately but I am back and have loads of stuff planned in December. So without further ado, let me talk about 5 must have beauty products for working mothers! Now women in general and working mothers in particular are forever short on time. “Oh, I have enough hours in the day”, said no woman ever. With several demands on our time, what gets sacrificed most often is me time, self care and beauty regimen. I thus believe that it is very important

Make Me Gorgeous by Ashmi

Recently, I was organising my photos from the past decade and realised that after my daughter was born, I had little or no makeup in most pics. I had proper makeup only at big events.

I had picked out this silk Paithani many years ago and finally opened it up this year in Diwali. Since this was an impulse, I did not have a matching maroon or green blouse ready so paired it with a dull golden blouse. This blouse has been so handy whenever I want to wear saris on an impulse (which generally is the case with me) that I am now thinking of getting a
