End of Black & White era

This idea sucks! It completely sucks! This society will not let me live in peace, so what it means an Old mansion for me. Life has struck 12’0..n there is a deep silence.. Neurons aren’t working, Mom’s extra “almonds” are paying off no results, it seems I am in Pre-Edison life, that dark life.

Health has begun taking a toll, BP is constantly on a rise, Migraine is a perfect companion not willing to take divorce, Doctors have become best friends & clinics my new “Pub”.

Suddenly, on the other side of the hi-chair, a lean freaky voice tried giving a sobbing advice.. Go take the pain, I’am the survivor of it! Forget “Life is a heaven for next few months, get you house renovated & painted”. Huh, but how to get rid of those seepages, who seem to give me the showers more than Cherrapunji?

And a dark silence broke..I had no solutions, deal was locked in the mind..I tried calling our yesteryear “Kisan Uncle”to take over the mansion for next few months.

I was willing to take an adventure break – right out there in an opposite park! People awarded the adventurous girl with a really “Tainted tented days”. Just some days on & my mansion had turned into dusty unhealthy jungle ..Wished I could measure the AQI then.

Kisan uncle had painted more of the furnitures & side bars rather than doing over the walls. It all seemed so tortured, it felt I had some magical spell ,a perfect black magic the day I took that decision. I shouted for a help this time from the core of my heart.

10 Moments you’ll not miss if you’re smooth

Biggest concern ….now what to do..Gosh had an outing …Had a party invite!

Concern getting addressed: Courtesy “Braun Epilators”, you can be silky smooth at a moment’s notice for as long as 4weeks (without in between worries)& then you go:)

It’s the worst! A last minute opportunity to have fun…an invite from friends, a fun party, a smoothie with your crush…but you have to ponder how to make it out because you’re, not at your smoothest! Really hate those in-between days when stubble means you can’t wear your favourite outfit, or you just feel you have to say no to that exciting invitation. Let’s celebrate 10 moments you won’t have to miss out on if your skin is always smooth. 

  1. Pool Parties :

We’ll winters in North are the best time to visit beaches (Goa/Puri/South/Diu), perfect party destination or even jump in to the West Rajasthan in some amazing resorts & why not try out some scintillating Pool parties?

New Pool wear..lovely shades..outright friends..Smooth Skin! Yes lady gorgeous ,you’re ready to dive in & have gala time.

2. Eye Catchy dress RIGHT NOW:

It’s the one you’ve had your eye on for ages. The one that will catch your crush’s eye, and make you feel FAB-U-LOUS! But what an epic fail if stubble stops you in your tracks. You can’t possibly wear it until you are super smooth. No need to worry, Braun epilators can remove hairs as small as a grain of sand. Get that new dress on, and cause a sensation GIRL!

3. Dancing & Enjoying with arms in Air :

Fun at the party. Favourite tune comes on. We’re flinging our arms in the air and dancing freely, but why do you plan to restrict yourself?  Smooth skin helps you take a smooth path to the smooth moves. GO NOW!

4. Park/Outdoor Visits:

Sunny days are coming soon! Wearing your shorts to the park on a warm sunny day at the end of the summer is one of life’s little wins. But only if your skin is silky smooth so you can be hot enough on that hot day!

 5. Rollercoaster time with absolute wowiee Pics:

What’s more exhilarating than flinging your arms in the air and shouting ‘whhheeeeeee’ from the top of the largest rollercoaster ride. Make sure you’re picture-perfect with super smooth pits.

6. Leg day at GYM:

It’s the perfect opportunity to impress your crush…but not if it’s an in-between day! Play it smooth. Braun epilators catch hairs 4x shorter than waxing, so you’ll never get caught out & have a legging day 🙂

7.Rocking your favourite short-sleeved Tee:

It’s the old favourite. The trusty tee that instantly makes you feel super confident. But only if your silky smooth skin plays a supporting role, then it’s a smooth path to a small boost! GO & WEAR your CONFIDENCE ON!

8.Those “Legfies”:

Sun? Having fun? Smooth legs? Legfie taken! Shared & yo…100 odd likes & comments..Whooo!

9. Sudden “Beach Invite”:

Gosh!It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Your crush has FINALLY asked you to the beach. But, hold on, how can you rock your cut-offs with stubble? Get your skin smooth for the win!

10. That’s an Entry to the “Most awaited GIG”:

Your favourite band’s in town, and you’ve managed to get your hands on tickets FINALLY. YES! Worries? How to look LEG-endary? Wearing your favourite Skirt/Dress of course! And you’re ready to rock the look with super smooth legs. You’ve marked many there!

Believe on ,epilation is better than other traditional method of Hair Removal  like waxing , depilation cream, throw the tradition out & opt for the convenience, long lasting smoothness, pain-free life, from Braun , a subsidiary of P&G.

Top 7 uses of Talcum Powder

Not much talked about , but this is the backbone rather an essential ingredient (full of lively fragrance) in the washroom/wardrobe of every women & even Men. Being a science student ,I still remember how enthusiastic I was when I chemically derived this non-water soluble material called “Talc”, a mineral made of hydrated Magnesium silicate .

Ya, I’m writing about the commonly used “Talcum powder” in our lives.

screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-5-13-24-pm

Here goes Top 7 interesting uses of Talcum Powder :

  1. Forget the sweating & get that cooling experience :

Morning gym session, aerobics, facing the scorching, sun all experiences can get pleasant by the use of Talc, which has moisture absorbent properties in its composition. Experience will be better with more of its application in the areas where skin rubs against skin & high sweat areas which are prone to fungal infection. A decent layer of talc can reduce that friction & sweat & one can enjoy an odour free life:)

2. Even forget a Dry hot summer night :

All you need is to sprinkle up the talc on bed sheet/pillows before going to bed & just pounce on the cool sleep you’ll get for the whole night!

3.Great for females as beauty agent :

1. Apply talc before waxing/exfoliating any part, as talc will absorb excess oil on the skin’s surface which in turns help in better and easy hair removal .

2.Wanna get those fuller eyelashes? Just dust your lashes with the talcum powder & then apply mascara to it. You’ll be pleased to see your natural eye lashes looking gorgeous

3. It can also be used to set the Makeup ,which will help it last for a longer duration & absorb all the oil being generated on the skin!

4.A wonderful DRY Shampoo:

It’s a perfect agent to help you maintain your flawless, non-greasy hair. Sprinkle some talc on the inner layer of your hair from the roots (incase you have Blonde hair)/ apply some talc on comb & evenly spread it across from the roots so that extra oil/grease from the oil glands gets absorbed by the talc & you can get fragrant non oily lustrous hair!

One can even get your pet cleaned from this dry shampoo.

5.Want to get rid of those stinky shoes/shoe racks?

Its so simple, just sprinkle some talc inside the shoes or inside the shoe rack & leave it for some 8-10 hours, dust off the extra talcum powder & enjoy the fragrant walk .

6.Why just shoes, its apt to freshen up the wardrobe & clothes, all the more during rains. Its use can make you forget that musty smell encountered & liven up your wardrobe.

7. Absorbs Grease :

Don’t worry if you dribbled grease on your favourite tee, as sprinkling up the greased location with talcum powder helps in absorbing the oil & even livens up the fabric.

Right Property Investments After Demonetization

As the short-term effects of demonetization continue to play out, investors across India have begun contemplating which long-term moves may be the most beneficial to them. A disruptive event is often a great opportunity to rethink fundamentals, and this case is no different. The present moment is an apt time to evaluate and re calibrate one’s portfolio, especially in terms of property ownership.

It is widely expected that banks, newly flush with enormous deposits of rupees, will lower interest rates—which will in turn increase asset prices, including that of real estate. However, not all property markets are created equal. Neither, for that matter, are all property transactions. A solid grasp of the dynamics in play, including the effects of lower interest rates and reduced black money on the different types of property, will enable the savvy investor to profit from demonetization.

In India’s new-economy urban centers, which see a sturdy trend of white-collar, salaried employees purchasing property with cheques and bank loans, the sudden disappearance of 500- and 1000-rupee notes is unlikely to have a huge impact on real estate practices. In Bangalore, for example, it is estimated that only 5% of transactions for apartments in the mid-range segment of the market involve cash dealings. This is at enormous variance to more traditional cities (such as Mumbai and Delhi) or in the higher end segment of the market (properties exceeding one crore), where cash has passed from one hand to another far more freely. The implication for investors is that cities with a higher rate of new economy jobs are more stable and attractive, especially in the case of mid-range properties. Bangalore, with its size-able proportion of salaried professionals and mortgage-purchased properties, is the strongest example of such a city, followed by Pune and, to a lesser extent, Chennai. For assets with these favorable locations and price points, investors need not fret about demonetization softening demand—rather, they can expect reduced interest rates to boost demand.

With land transactions, the dynamics are somewhat different. There are scenarios in which land prices will rise and others in which they will fall. Vast parcels of land in and around major urban areas are typically purchased either by developers or by individuals with the deepest of pockets. For buyers accustomed to institutional financing—primarily the more reputable developers—the effect should be minimal; however, other parties, such as individuals with deep pockets who used to deploy cash, will be adversely affected and may temporarily have to sit on the sidelines. Thus, the demonetization is likely to benefit large developers vis-à-vis individual investors or smaller developers. In tier 2 or smaller cities, where there are few purchasers with access to institutional financing, demonetization could reduce property prices since all purchasers are likely to be affected.

Increased taxes and anchoring will add to the dynamic mix of factors affecting real estate after demonetization. The reduction in black money is, in effect, equivalent to an increase in the tax rates since the “tax-free” portion of transactions could diminish. As with any other industry, an increase in tax will work to increase the final price to the end user because sellers are anchored in the after-tax realization that they want. This increase in costs will be passed on to the final buyer in the form of higher property prices, particularly in the markets where demand is not affected by the demonetization.

The consequences of demonetization will create winners and losers in the real estate sector, depending on the property type, location, and price point. Investors should ideally park their money in mid-priced properties in the urban centers of India with the highest percentage of white-collar and new economy buyers. Conversely, investors should avoid properties that may not fare as well: properties in tier 2 cities, assets with high prices, and properties in the more traditional urban centers.

As demonetization creates a new normal in India, those who focus their property investments toward new-economy professionals can expect to come out as winners.
