I Will Meet You There by Esha Pandey

Latest Book Review on my blog:

I Will Meet You There is a collection of 23 stories. 23 love stories at that. The Foreword is written by Muzaffar Ali and to quote him
I Will Meet You There takes you through maze of love and longing to a place of no wrong or right doing, where no one sits on judgement as in the garden of a Sufi
If you like reading short stories you should give this a go. If you like sweet romances, then this is definitely a book you should pick up. A book like this is good for days when you are busy and can not read long novels but still want to read a few pages everyday. The book is well written, the grammar is spot on, the characters are good and it is definitely enjoyable!

FOTD: Four Products Only

How often have you been caught in a situation where you have almost no makeup on you and you need to head out? This happened to me on a business trip to Bangalore. I was carrying the basic compact, kajal and a few neutral lippies for day wear. Turned out my bro who was there then  had other plans. He took me out thrice and each time, I kicked myself for not packing in extra stuff. Since I had to make do with whatever was available, here is what I did.

FOTD: Basic Kajal and Barely There Lip Colour

This was an almost no makeup look that can be easily worn in the day time as well. I went heavy on the kajal and smudged it on the lower lashline. The upper lashline was quite a thick lining. I used Lotus kajal here since I was short of products then. Ideally, I would line the upper lashline with Faces eye liner in black or Maybelline gel liner.

Beauty Tip - Using Scrubs

This is a fantastic tip I picked up blog hopping long time back. I have shared it with a lot of ppl and all have loved it. So trying to spread some love on the blog too.

When you use a cream based scrub for exfoliation, allow it to sit on your face like a mask. When the scrub is semi dry, wet your hands and massage your face. This will allow the creams to penetrate deeper and give you much better results.

Try it and let me know if it worked for you. Or share your own exfoliation tip.

Travelling Alone & Realisations at Trafalgar Square

How exciting it is to be living a traveller's life? You hear the stories of your friends who have been to all those fantastic places.. you see their pictures on Facebook... you see all the places they have checked in on FourSquare and you go, "Wow, What a fantastic life!" When you meet these people they talk about the wonderful experiences they have had, conversations with fellow travelers, acts of kindness by random strangers when they needed help and can't help wish, "If only I led such a traveller's life"

What these stories don't tell us is about the long waits at airports and train stations. What the smiling faces in pictures don't let on is the longing of being away from family and loved ones.

When I travelled alone to London a while ago, I was all kicked about sight seeing and exploring the place on my own. At Trafalgar Square, such a strong feeling of loneliness hit me that I almost went back to the hotel! I was so grateful then that my friend G came to see me the day before. That evening I realised the true need of good company. And so, I clicked pictures of people all around.

Leaving you guys with some pics from that evening :)
