We all want out skin to be soft and beautiful. So, today I am going to review Lotus Hydravitals Massage Cream which I bought from a cosmetic shop in Sadar Bazaar, Gurgaon.


It is a very nice fragnant cream which is used in most of the beauty salons. They charge you hefty amount for facial but you can do it yourself at home and save money. After scrubbing your face,you just need to take a pea sized amount of cream and little water. Mix together and apply on your face and neck.

First of all you have to keep checking the website of the schoolvery regularly to find out when the admission forms are available.

3. Kids Christmas Workshop



Shopping in Amritsar

Image
Hey!

I am just back from Amritsar. It is famous for it's embroidered fabric, jutiyan, vadis and papad.

Amritsar is famous for Phulkari work suits, dupatta, saree and shawls. Phulkari means flower work. I bought a "Pataila Suit" for my niece which has phulkari work on its dupatta. 






I picked up one dupatta for myself too at a pretty cheap price of Rs.300. But remember, you need to have good bargaining skills for that.




Walking around the Hall Bazaar, I saw these beautiful, vibrant Jutiyan. Each pair was in between price range of Rs.150 to Rs.4000. 


When in Amritsar you can also buy vadis, achar(pickle) and papad. Vadis are available in 2-3 variants like moong daal and urad daal. Papads are huge in size. 





Do post your comments or queries if you are planning for a trip to Amritsar.

Cheers!!

People were fired by troops of the British Army by the order of ColonelDyer. Around 1000 were wounded. This was a very sad day in the history of India which we should never forget.
