Happy New Year 2017

 

Happy New Year 2017! Thank you for all the love in the year gone by. 2016 was a year where other platforms like YouTube and Instagram took precedence over the blog, which is why your continued readership, support and honest feedback in this space means a lot to me. As my blog completes 6 years this January (its been a long and eventful journey), I would like to make some changes to this space, to ensure it continues to be a place you’d want to come back to everyday for new content, articles that you find enjoyable and useful. If you’d like to leave any comments or feedback below this post, sharing what kind of content you enjoy and would like to read, please feel free to drop a line below or send me an email at ankita@corallista.com. Once again, I am very grateful and humbled by your continued love and support. It has given me the privilege to transform my love for beauty and blogging to a serious, viable career option. I look forward to your feedback, to make this space better in the coming year. Once again, wishing you and your loved ones a very happy near year 2017!

2 Easy Hairstyles for Medium-length Hair

 

Hi everyone! Today I’ll be sharing 2 super easy hairstyles for medium-length hair. These are quick to create but still look like you’ve put some effort in! I’ve used BBLUNT products which make styling your hair at home super easy, as they are designed especially for Indian hair and weather.

Look 1

The first look is Braided style for beginners which looks really pretty with open hair as well as ponytails.

  • I shampooed my hair using the BBLUNT Perfect Balance Shampoo and followed it up with the BBLUNT Perfect Balance Conditioner. This restores the moisture balance and re-energises dull hair.
  • I then used the BBLUNT Blown Away Volumizing Leave-in Spray on my damp hair. This is meant to be used on the roots and it helps in adding volume and bounce to the hair.
  • I then quickly dried my hair using a blow-dryer. You can do a salon style blow-dry, section by section, to get amazing volume and smooth hair. Or do a quick dry like I did to retain some natural wave and bounce in your hair, but with added volume due to the spray used in the previous step.
  • Next, I did my usual left side-parting and picked up a section of hair as shown. I split these 3 sections and proceeded to create a braid. Every time I crossed the front section under the middle section, I added a few new strands to the front section. This will create a slightly different look as compared to a plain braid.

Christmas Gifts from Innisfree India

 

Hi everyone! Korean skin care brand Innisfree, is now available online at Nykaa.com and the brand team sent me this lovely Christmas gift set. I received a hand cream set along with a capsule collection of their face masks. These can be purchased individually online. The hand creams retail for Rs 300 whereas the capsule masks (10 ml quantity) are priced at Rs 150 each. I haven’t had a chance to try the masks yet but I tried the hand creams and really liked them. They’re very moisturizing and smell pretty nice too. The peach variant is my favorite so far, I absolutely love the juicy, sweet fruity scent! The limited edition Christmas packaging looks really cute too.
