Morning Routine – Products

Taking care of my skin and hair is of priority today, I won’t deny that there are times when I am super lazy and sleep with my make up on but more often than not, I am generally taking care of my skin the best way I can. I am listing down all the products that I use every day in the morning, I have been using them for ages and they are absolutely brilliant.

I moisturize my skin everyday without fail! Post bath, I sit down and moisturize my entire body. I love using Nivea and Vaseline. I keep alternating between these two. They are affordable, lasts for around 3-4 months and keeps your skin feeling nice and soft.
You can buy them here:

BB Cream
Doing a proper full face make up every morning is not my cup of tea. A BB cream does the work for me and works like a charm! I have been using the Maybelline BB Cream for the longest time now and I love it.  It easy on the pocket and does a fabulous job. I however recently did try out a CC Cream by Oriflame, although it is a bit on the expensive side, it is totally worth the cost. You require a very little amount, thus it will last you a long time – totally worth the money.
I have already done a review of the Oriflame product, you can check that out here:

I use powder after applying the BB cream, only to get a matte finish. I use the good-ole Lakme. It does the job and I makes my matte in seconds.

Mascara and Kajal
 Again, I am Maybelline Loyalist. Have been using these for ages, and they have stood the test of time. These are one of the basic products and they have stayed with me for everyday use. I have heard that some people don’t like the Colossal range much, so do you research before you buy this – for me personally, they work amazingly well.

The lipstick honestly keeps changing, but a pop of lipstick and I am done with my morning routine! :D

2 Minutes Self-Irrigation System For Your Home Plants

I have made a quick and easy self-irrigation system for my potted plants. This enables the plants to water itself whenever required and thus you don’t want to worry about your plants drying out.
I like plants; I like them even more in my house. I think I got this green thumb as a hand me down from my mother. I soon plan to grow an herb garden and build a compost bin at home.

Materials needed
  1.  container ( could be anything you like, depending on the water you need to water and the size of the plant)
  2. Cotton string
  3. Stand

Step 1: Keep your container on the stand; make sure that the container is higher than your plants. We are trying to use gravity here

Step 2: Insert one end of the cotton string in the container and insert the other end in the soil in the pot

Step 3: Try to keep the string as straight as possible

Step 4: Keep this as is without disturbing. The capillary action is in force here and the water will automatically get transferred to the pot whenever the plant requires it. Your plant is now taking care of itself and is watering itself whenever it requires it.

You just need to refill the water once is 2-3 days depending on the size of the water container and your plants.

This system will also come in handy when you are going on a vacation and cannot water your plants. Just remember to put a large container of water.

I did this as an experiment for my indoor plants; I shall wait until monsoon is over and then use the same system for the bigger plants in the balcony

( If you have a herb garden, please do let me know in the comments how you went about it. I would really like to gather some tips and hacks and advice to get my herb garden started )
