Why I do not want to get a kitten home?

So, this is something that has been close to my heart always…

Last week me and Peeyush brought home our kitten! And we named him Murphy. Murphy was almost 12 weeks when he came to our home. And I believe we were not prepared for what we had gotten into.

  1. The kitten had to be litter trained. Well, he knew what business the litter tray was meant for, but he had difficulty in getting to the litter tray. So, in my dictionary that means “needs litter box training.” I had to put him in the litter box a couple of times in a day for him to figure out that he was wanting to pee and poop.
  2. I was grounded. Literally! I could not go out, even for 10 minutes, because the kitten would go crazy meowing! He needed my constant attention. He wanted me to be next to him all the time…. And cats are not good with car travel, so the question of him taking out was out of conversation.
  3. He was a baby. Like any baby, he wanted to follow me everywhere, well, there would be many reasons for it, I was his sister or mother, but I needed my life. I had my blog, had to cook, spend time with my husband (we are newly weds) and he wanted to take up our time everywhere.
  4. The nights are painful. Just like a crying baby, the kitten used to jump on us and wanted to play with us at night. They are the most active then and wanted our attention. That was totally out of the question. On top of it, he was teething , so we were training him not to bite our fingers and toes.
  5. I have had a 2 year old cat in the past and she did not require, this much work. But the baby kitten was just a lot to take in. Too much attention, constant surveillance, and many more things.

I totally accept the fact, that we made a huge mistake by bringing home the kitty. What we needed, if needed at this point was an elder cat, that too female.

If you are wondering what happened to the kitten, we returned him to our breeder and she will place him in his furever home ! God bless the kitten.

This is an article written to tell everyone not to make a mistake what we did and think twice before bringing a pet home. 

If you are absolutely sure about having a pet, and want a cat in your life, you can get retired pedigreed cats too.

Makeup products I cannot live without

Hey all, I have wanting to write this blog for such a long time, but I was waiting to narrow products- I only wanted the “most essential” to fall in this list and so, I have like five products here. Also, I only wanted to capture the makeup items, and not have skin care included, only because skin care would take up another blog….. oh yeah! Its summer time and my skin goes crazy oily!

Well, its oily on most parts of the face, just leaving my nose to be dry, so getting the right product on my skin is a bit of challenge. Tell me, if you also have the same problem 😒

So getting back to the topic, on weekends when I go out, I need more than just these, because I want to feel glamorous (eeeee.. yep); yeah I like getting all dressy. But the ones mentioned here are my definite go-to’s for when you just need that clear skin but do not want to put to shit ton of makeup.

1. Maybelline Dream BB Fresh

So going according to their usage, I love the Maybelline Dream BB Fresh 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector. I am in the shade 120 Medium Sheer Tint and this gives a pretty sheer coverage to my face. I can apply it easily with bare hands and it gives a clean finish to my face hiding some spots here and there. If you are looking for medium to full coverage, I would recommend you staying away from it as this just gives a tiny bit of coverage.

2. Revlon Brow Fantasy by ColorStay

I use Dark Brown and this is a pretty decent buy. It has a pencil crayon on one side and a gel on the other side and has markings on it to denote that the pencil goes 1st and then the gel. My brows stay in their place and the crayon does a fine job. It is my quick and easy fix for those days when I do not have much time.

3. Sephora Waterproof Blush 

I am in love with this product and this has lasted me for more than a year now. The pigmentation is super….. i am using “Such a peach” color. This is a spray, yes and it feel super cool on the skin. Just spray a bit on your cheek and blend it with your finger and I get rosy cheeks. Love, love, love it…. This is from their airbrush spray collection and it is awe-mazing! Also, always shake the bottle before spraying it and keep it a bit away from your cheek.

4. L’oreal Voluminous Original Mascara

I love mascaras, and I bet if anyone loves makeup they gotta love mascara. I love this one. This lengthens and gives a boost of volume to my lashes. And yes, comes with thin, long wand that I like… try this, if you haven’t yet!

4. Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream

I love most of the shades that come in this…but most of all I like SMLC 08. It is a cute fuschia pinkish shade with a coral -like undertone on it. The consistency just glides on to my lips and dries in feew seconds. The formula is not super matte like its name, but little matte. Just right to give a nourishment to my lips and at the same time to stay in the lines.

So these are the products that I cannot live without, what are yours???? Would love to check them out….

Take care and have a wonderful day



How to clean your Jewelry at home

Owning jewelry and not getting it cleaned regularly can make the piece loose its charm. I love to own statement pieces and have a sort of jewelry collection going on. To make those shiny pieces sparkle all throughout the year, it needs little bit of work.

This is pretty easy and especially fast to do. The steps are as follows:

Step 1: Take out the jewelry which you want to clean. I clean my jewelry every 6 months. This keeps them shiny as new.

Step 2: Use soap and water. Mix any shower gel or bathing soap with a little amount of water and mix the two to get a soapy solution.

Step 3: Place the jewelry in your solution and leave it for 10-15 minutes.

Step 4: Use a light hand and brush it with a toothbrush.

Step 5: Clean with running clean water and wipe with a clean soft cloth.

Yes, this is it. It is really that simple.

I hope this would help. Surely, there are more ways to go around the block, but this is the easiest, simplest and fastest of all.
