We’ve all been there. A wild night of dancing, daru & dozing off early in the morning. In my experience the wildness of the night is directly proportional to the hangover the next day! While normally I can stay up as late as I want, it’s always the daru that gets to me 😅 So considering that it’s still shaadi season apne des, I thought I’d put together a short list of products that help me appear put-together in a jiffy.

Nail polishes were my first foray into the world of beauty. While typing this I’m realising that it’s actually Kajal but c’mon that’s not even counted for Indians. Nail polishes were what I actively went & purchased, you know. I mean that was what I was really allowed to get into in my teenage years. Lip gloss was a strict no-no till college.

Over the years I’ve built quite a collection. While giving myself an at-home manicure (damn this lockdown!) yesterday, I noticed that even though I aimed to collect all the colours of the rainbow, it’s clear that I do veer towards certain colours a bit more than others. I’ve already covered a little edit on my love for berries (not literally, only on nails, although I do Love berries) I observed that unintentionally I’ve collected quite a few colours in the purple shade range & an idea struck me!

If I had to name my 5 favourites things in the world then chocolate fudge would be on the list right behind Zachary Levi, Ganpati festival and family (perhaps not in that exact order). Especially the super gooey, melt-in-your-mouth ones. I’ve never tried making anything like this before and was very excited to try a chocolate based recipe. Surprisingly it turned out well & I thought maybe you guys would love to try it as well.
