Why do we need to have facial? If I ask this question I am sure, to get pile of answers on its benefits. But how many of us know about different types of facial done in the salon and about its function. When we visit salon we get skin experts to guide us. But most of us are ignorant about its benefits or whether my skin really needs that particular type of facials. Suppose pearl facial works good on my friend’s skin. But it doesn’t mean the same facial will do its best to my skin. Different facials have different functions. If you want facial to reduce wrinkle then of course aromatherapy facial is not the one for you.

Style In Palazzo Even If You Have An Average Height

Palazzo, call it a hot fashion or passe, but in trend today without any doubt. I had a little doubt whether it will look good on me as I have a short height. So I dared to add palazzo in my wardrobe. However, at last I garnered up some courage to try palazzo but in my own fashion.
You know that I always keep on shouting that I am not a fashion freak. I always like to hit the fashion in my own way ( you may call it stale or style) . This time I tried this cotton printed palazzo with black and cream combination.


If you have a short height don't hesitate to wear palazzo pants. But you have to be a little tricky while trying this fashion.

  • Choose the right size.
  • Straight palazzo will look good on short height. But you can also go for flowy one. In that case shoes with heel is must.
  • Tuck your top inside the palazzo pants.
  • Never layer too much. It can make you look more dumpy.
  • Avoid long Kurta on palazzo
  • Wear solid color top.

6 Ways To Become A Smart Worker At Office


SMART WORKER Vs HARD WORKER

It is always true that "effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference." Now the question is how many of us work smartly, instead of working hard? The thing is that most of us use our time working hard in office. And at the end of the day we mourn of not getting enough as we expected. Actually our sense of hard work is if it eventually makes us really fatigued. However, like a hard sum to solve in school, a hard task should be approached, not only counting our efforts but how smartly we do it.

So next time think smartly before you execute your work. Experts say Work Smarter, Not Harder. Here are some tips of experts which I have jotted down for you.




Pen down Your Work                                                   

Make a list of your work according to the priority. Then break the work in little slots and try to complete it within the time slot.

Divide and Rule

If you have loads of work then don’t try to complete it alone. Adopt divide and rule policy guys. Distribute your work among others and then keep monitoring it. In this way you can meet your deadline. Teamwork and Synergy often makes working hard a most pleasurable experience.

Answer E-mail First

Answer those mails as soon as possible when it arrives from your boss or colleagues. Sometimes we get so submerge in our work that we often neglect those e-mail. We think to answer after completing our work. But at the end of the day we either miss or forget to answer those e-mails which may lead you to an embarrassing situation.

Think Differently

If a task is not done then we work hard on it. We repeatedly try it in the same way. If you wanted to be a smart worker then think differently. Never repeat the same process. Try to complete the task in different way. A smart worker always learns from his/ her previous mistakes. Innovation is a key component of a smart worker. 

Have Patience

Office is a place where you have to come across people with different personality and different attitude. You may not like them all. But you have to be patient with them. Don’t express your exasperation immediately.

Break Is Important

According to expertise it is very important to take a break in between work. The idea of taking break will help to focus more on your work. But don’t take it every 5 minutes just for surfing social networking sites. Don’t waste your office time on online shopping or personal affairs more often. It can create a mental distraction and a sends wrong signals to those who takes job seriously at workplace.

Hope you are itching to add more ways what you already apply successfully at your workplace. Please do come up with more smart ways to improve your performance at your workplace. Thanks for reading and sharing.

5 Beauty Routine You Must Follow In Winter

Winter is the season when we have to take extra care of our skin. During winter I strictly follow these beauty regimens which I am going to share with you.

No More Hot Baths



Avoid hot baths. Instead of high temperature water I like to take bath in lukewarm water. Too much hot water actually leaves your skin dry.

Avoid Dead Cell



Don’t forget to exfoliate your skin. Applying moisturizing is must during winter. But if you want the moisturizer to absorb in your skin then exfoliation is important. I generally use to buy good scrubber from cosmetic shops. I exfoliate my skin thrice a week.

Pamper Your Skin


Pamper your skin with regular oil massage. Just before taking a bath massaging body oil is vital. It helps to retain moisture in my skin for a long period of time.

Smooth Lips


Chapped lips may damage your attire. No matter how well you dress up or how well you make-up. Crack, chapped lips can pour water in it. So I don’t forget to apply lip balm or Vaseline on my lips. I generally use lip balm with vitamin E. It helps to reduce darkening of lips that  often causes due to sunburn or dryness.

Don’t Forget sunscreen Lotion



During winter, skin remains more sensitive. So there is more chance of skin damaging due to ultra violate rays. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen lotion whenever you step out.

My readers, you can also share your beauty routine in my blog. If you like this post then share it, like it or give comments.

7 TRICKS TO REMAIN STRESS FREE AT WORKPLACE


Stress at workplace has now become a common phrase. Stress is good as long as it is in limits. Excessive stress not only influences professional life but it also affects our personal life.

Recently I met one of my friends, who so stressed out at his workplace that he made his personal life a hell. He got married for just two years only and now his married life has come to an end. Sounds odd? But it is true. When I met his wife who is also a friend of mine told me that he used to remain so stressed that he started to torture her emotionally. Due to the hectic schedule of corporate life he used to drench out all his frustration on his wife.

I repeat, stress is good as long as it is in the comfort zone. More than that it can lead to depression, fatigue, loosing concentration, irritation and many more such syndromes follow. While working as a journalist in a daily newspaper I had to maintain a tough schedule. So I adopted few tricks to remain hassle free. Here are some tips for you, as it works for me.

Move Your Body

No matter how busy you are. Take out at least 30 minutes for exercise. Start your day with little bit workout (may be just free hand exercise, walking). It helps to increase your energy. Also walking (cardio vascular exercises) helps in concentration and you can also relax physically and mentally.

Be Positive, Increase Self-Belief

It is very important to keep a positive attitude in office. Slash down all the negative thoughts like, “can I complete the project”, “can I meet the target” etc. Never doubt yourself. Just keep in mind that you can do it. Positive thought will help you to increase your confidence.  

Work for Yourself

Never work to impress your boss. The pressure of impressing boss will leave you nowhere. Work for yourself so that you can learn something. It will later help you in your life. Just love your work. Try to bring some innovation in your work so that you never get bored.

Take a Break

Yes, it is important to take a short break in between your work. Close your eyes and stretch your arms and legs in between your work. In between you can also text sweet message to beloved one. This short break actually helps you to focus in your work.

Positive Relation

Maintain positive relation with other staff. Lunch time at office is a good opportunity to build friendship with others. Share your meal as well as your thoughts with your colleagues. Try to help them in their crisis period. Supportive and caring friends are very important to curb down stress at workplace. If you support them at their emergency then they will definitely stand by you.

Good Planning

If you are pissing off with a large project then break it and complete it step by step. Good planning is vital before you progress with your work. Arrange your work according to priority.

Eat Well, Sleep Well


Avoid too much oily food or junk food. Don’t forget to keep fruits salad in your diet. Even if you have a shifting duty, set your timing in such a way so that you can have at least seven hours for sound sleep.

A big NO to my new Sno-tex Almond and Milk cold cream

In this winter I wanted to try some new cold cream other than my regular one. And I got Sno-tex Almond & Milk Cold cream. It is new for me so I go for the small (20 ml) pack. Before trying any new product I generally buy the sample pack first. And if I get satisfactory result then only I go for the large pack. So this time also I decided to buy the small one.

LOOK

Sno-tex Almond & Milk Cold cream comes in a cute plastic orange jar. It opens easily and very handy.



CONTENT

Almond, Milk, Vitamin E with Sunscreen

MY EXPERIENCE

I had a disappointing experience with Sno-tex Almond & Milk Cold cream. It smells sweet when I open the jar. It demands to protect dry skin in cold and to retain moisture making it soft. But I hardly find any difference in my skin. It does not easily blend with my skin. After applying the cream my face looks darker.




WHAT I DON’T LIKE

  • I hate the greasy texture of the cream.
  • After applying the cream I feel a thick layer on my face.
  • Skin looks dull.


RECOMMENDATION

I will never use it again.

Girls you can share your experience regarding any beauty product here so that I can share it with my readers.
