    1. What do you have on your nails right now?
    Lotus’s Cozy mulberry. It’s my favourite colour.

    2. Do you use essential oils?
    I sometimes use them in homemade face packs and scrubs.

    I went to shopping yesterday and bought 2 Ubtans from Forest Essentials and Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Scrub.

    4. What are you craving this weekend?
    Chocolate ice-cream and strawberries.

    5. What is the weather like where you stay?
    Very very hot. I wish it was raining over here.

    • June 8, 2014 / 6:18 pm

      Hey Madhur, Lotus Cozy Mulberry is a beautiful color! I used to love it (and Candy Drop from the same range as well!) but I guess I misplaced it during shifting etc. Which ubtans did you pick from Forest Essentials?

      • Madhur
        June 8, 2014 / 11:30 pm

        Hey ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t tried Candy drop. I am definitely going to buy that colour next. I bought Narangi & Nagkesar and Tejasvi. SA told me that Tejasvi is for dry skin but it smelled wonderful so couldn’t stop myself from buying. ๐Ÿ˜€ And I didn’t even went to buy the above things. I wanted to buy a shampoo which is Sulphate, Paraben, Silicone and PEG free but couldn’t find any such shampoo. :/

        • June 8, 2014 / 11:43 pm

          I have tried the Narangi and Nagkesar ubtan and its nice ๐Ÿ™‚ Aren't the FE shampoos Sulphate and Silicone free? I have tried the Mashobra Honey and Vanilla shampoo/conditioner from Forest Essentials and it is SLS, paraben, silicone and PEG free.

          • Madhur
            June 9, 2014 / 11:49 pm

            I don’t think that FE shampoo are sulphate free. First, they do not write on their products full ingredient list. They basically list natural ingredients and all chemicals come under their ‘ Base QS ‘ or do not mention at all. This annoys me a lot and I do not trust such products.

    Well have been eating out too many times of late…so nothing

    A small tip for making the malai koftas ……use very little cornflour for binding the koftas…..and if you pressure cook all the remaining ingredients and just puree them, it really cuts down on the cooking time without compromising on the taste…it is good that you mentioned it….one of my readers has requested for the recipe…will post it next week!

    I stay in Blore so its great at the moment………awesome winds and clear skies!!

    • June 8, 2014 / 6:28 pm

      Thanks for the tip Sweta!! I didn't have cornflour so I just used a little bit of maida, the koftas turned out fine though I think I should have put some dry fruit filling inside to make them a little more interesting. Do post your recipe soon, would love to check it out!
