REVIEW : MATRIX BIOLAGE ADVANCE REPAIRINSIDE TREATMENT


Ola! 
Mumbai's polluted air, repeated heat styling, tons of hair products at blog shoots and simply not having the time to pamper my precious hair, leaves it, as you would expect - super damaged. When those down days in a month come by where my hair feels limp and unhealthy, I almost always turn to my mother and complain about having to go for a haircut again. Isn't that the solution we all turn to for hair thats not looking as great as it should?
Definitely, until, I took the Matrix Biolage Advance Repairinside Treatment.

When I heard about this new treatment by Matrix there were two reasons why it appealed to me. Firstly, contrary to other hair treatments that usually either nourish your hair from the inside or make it look stronger and stunning on the outside, the Biolage treatment does both. Not only does it repair your damaged hair from inside, but it also makes it stronger automatically making it look better and less-damaged on the outside.
Secondly, there was finally a solution for my damaged hair that entailed not chopping it off. Instead of cutting it, I could re-construct it.

My Review of the Treatment
The treatment began with the Biolage Advance Repairinside Treatment Shampoo followed by a Hyperdose concentrate which was applied to sections of my hair to target the most damaged sections. On top of the concentrate a Masque was applied which was followed by a super relaxing 20minute massage (best part, duh). Post the massage, I went in for a quick rinse and then a leave-in cream was smeared to protect my hair from heat damage while styling.
As soon as my hair dried and I ran my hand through it, it felt unbelievably soft and shiny. 
As you can see in the 'Before and After' picture above, my hair was transformed into a more healthy, bouncy and shiny version of itself.

My favorite part
Its been almost a week since I took the treatment and ever since I have been using the Repairing shampoo the kind folks over at Matrix gave me and my hair feels fantastic. There's a typical moisture-like layer that the shampoo leaves onto my hair (non-greasy) that makes it feel protected, softer and a lot more thicker!

I recommend you go give it a try at a salon near you!

A LITTLE BIT OF FASHION & WORLD MUSIC

What I'm Wearing - Mango off-shoulder dress worn as top, Midi skirt from a boutique in Bangkok, Style Fiesta Gold Macro Studs, Moschino clutch & Forever21 shoes.

To me, Fashion, Art and Music are three tangents of the same foundation; closely related and always supplementing. When Blackberrys - one of India's leading premium menswear brands, announced that its annual flagship event was no-more a fashion show but a five-city World Music Tour, it was commendable to see a fashion brand push their boundaries and collaborate and promote other genres apart from its own.
'Blackberrys Sharp Nights - Master of World Music' is conceptualised to showcase two of the worlds leading world music performers Fatoumata Diawara and singer Vieux Farka Toure, promote local talent and initialize a scholarship fund to help conserve traditional Indian music. Fatoumata Diawara will perform on Nov 19th in Delhi and in Hyderabad on Nov 22nd whereas Vieux Farka Toure will perform on Dec 3rd, Dec 6th and Dec 10th in Pune, Bengaluru and Mumbai respectively.
It gets better. Each concert of this festival will open curtains with a fashion auction that showcases Blackberrys AW'14 looks - proceeds of which will be used to nurture Indian traditional music schools, by providing scholarships for deserving students and funds for material support. 

In other news, a beauty haul and review of a fab hair treatment is coming to you soon. Hope you enjoyed looking at this outfit! Tell me what you thought of it in the comments :)

BADASS MOMENTS WITH GAS


What I'm Wearing - All clothing items courtesy GAS, Ermenegildo Zegna bag, Steve Madden pumps, Daniel Wellington watch & Style Fiesta sunglasses.
Makeup by Clinique.

October came and went faster than I could have imagined. One very exciting project I worked on towards the last week of this rather swift month was my collaboration with GAS for their 30th anniversary celebrations.
 While styling a look from their extensive collection of grunge yet sophisticated, clean cut lines, I fell in love with the mud blemished denim jacket and decided to dive into a denim-on-denim trend look. Never mind the Bombay weather, I can at least pose around in this gorgeous denim jacket for you guys. As expected, the super-soft jeans fit like a dream. 

Moving onto the more exciting bit - in accordance with its celebrations, the GAS website is going to be absolutely free for 30 seconds. Uh-huh, I'm not kidding! On 13th November, at 3:30 pm, you have 30 seconds to log onto their website and buy anything (anything!) free of charge. 
Guess its going to be a race to the heaviest shopping bag.

EARN WHILE YOU SHOP ONLINE : BONUSBAY REVIEW


Quite naturally, the title of the post must have crept a doubt in your mind, but you've got my word, this new service will have you splurging online and while you're at it - make you some money too. Money saved is money earned right?

To put it simply, BonusBay is a cash-back website that offers part of buyers money back on popular shopping sites like Amazon, Jabong, Myntra, Flipkart and the works. So while you shop there, BonusBay gives you back a part of your purchase amount, and that too, directly in your bank account! Too good to be true? Follow these super simple steps so you can start earning right away :

Step 1 
Register an account with BonusBay.in. Easy-peasy. Just make sure your browser allows cookies so BonusBay can track your purchases.

Step 2
Browse through their massive inventory of stores (they've got everything from Myntra to Yatra to Koovs) and look for the one you want to shop from. Click on the 'Get Bonus' tab and you'll be re-directed to the website. Here on, carry out your purchase as you normally would and BonusBay will recognise you as a user.

Step 3
The bonus you rightfully earned (differs from store to store) will now be reflected in your account under the 'Tracked Cashback' tab. This might take a few days to show up so sit tight.

Step 4
Once your BonusBay balance hits a minimum of Rs 1000, you can ask for the amount to be transferred to your bank account. Ta-da!

The cash-back amounts might seem fairly small in the beginning, but with time, you'll see this figure appreciating into something substantial.
