Elflock


 

I like the letter ‘E’ of all the alphabets. I had umpteen choices of words and great many ideas swimming across my head. I wanted to write about Easter Eggs, Elephants, Eskimos, Emptiness, What not! But something made me shelf all these lovely topics and choose this word Elflock. Guess why?

This morning, in the shower, I witnessed Apocalypse!!!

This is how my hair looks like after it is completely dry. A Velcro manufacturing unit might approach me to discuss their business prospects; I see a great future ahead of me *Sob* *Sob*

I have been trying some hair treatments at home. I smear the magical concoction of coconut oil, olive oil and castor oil which smells more like X - *I don't want to mention it*. After the oil is absorbed and half of it covers my face, I put on the highly recommended special hair mask. The ingredients for the mask are - Egg whites (3), Thick-set yogurt(one small cup) and the juice of 2 big lemons. This one certainly smells better. After washing all of this off and emptying the water tank, I dry my hair naturally with a soft turkey towel. Finally, I look at the mirror hoping my hair would look divine like this:

But, this is what I actually look like - A Frizzy Fizz:

My encounter with bad hair days is getting so monotonous that I thought I will share and vent out some.

 

Do people really have hair like Merida, Rapunzel, Medusa, Princess Jasmin and Smurfette?

Do men have bad hair days?

  1. Very interesting. I don't think men have bad hair days - they not only have short hair but also 50% of them are like Kojak.

  2. I'm a little bit jealous that you have that much volume and body in your hair. My hair is straight and flat, I can't imagine how greasy it would look if I put those treatments on it. Doesn't it seem like everyone wants the hair they don't have? I try to curl mine, my sister has curly hair and straightens it.

    I don't think men have bad hair days. Just another thing they don't have to deal with.

    1. Please don't be unless you like frizzy hair... I definitely agree that everyone wants the hair they don't have. :D But all I wish for is maintainable hair :)

      //Just another thing they don't have to deal with.// :D True that! My brother doesn't even comb his hair, he just brushes it with his fingers and still manages to look cool! :O *face-palm*

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:





What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)

He could see her directly ahead through the shimmering blue glass window of Cafe Hafooda in Saket. The afternoon sun streamed along from the western side, casting long shadows across the table. Cyrus glanced up at Jennifer and then down at his mobile. 

JJ liked Cyrus but she had a lot of questions in her mind. What was he doing? Secretly texting someone? Investigating without her help? Trying to solve something before someone else is on it?
She was on this case with him. She wanted to do this for herself and for that little child and may be something more than she could comprehend. Whatever was his rationale, JJ decided to confront him. She spun herself around, sat down and found herself face-to-face with Cyrus. There was a sparkle in JJ’s eyes and Cyrus’s were menacing with thirst. Her tattoo seized Cyrus’s attention most. He was transfixed. There was some kind of ‘Ul…
