Book Review of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon


      “You're not living if you're not regretting.” 



I guess it’s never too late to write a book review, or maybe until it’s adapted into a movie. I guess!
I am talking about the book ‘Everything, Everything’ by Nicola Yoon which became the much talked and much-awaited film which was adapted from its original fiction work. The book was published in 2015, and the movie was released this year i.e. 2017, so on the onset of the movie trailer, people were intrigued to find out more about the book before the movie came out. The same applied to me too; I was curious to read the book before catching the movie.

Somehow I am more absorbed in books which are adapted into a movie, who isn’t? You are just interested to find out how the director changes the scene sequence or the line printed on a page into a screenplay. I bought the book only after I saw the trailer of the movie (honest confession). Luckily, the book got me hooked from the start.

Everything, Everything is a debut novel by Nicola Yoon, the story is about an 18 years old girl named Madeline Whittier who is allergic to the outside world. She is suffering from SCID, an immuno-deficiency disease that prevents her from going outside her room and interacting with others. She has never left her house in seventeen years. Her Mum along with the help of a nurse take care of her. She lives in her own bubble because of her sickness, but she longs to see the outside world. “The book is about the thrill and heartbreak that happens when we break out of our shell to do crazy, sometimes death-defying things for love.”

Madeline’s life is changed after a family moves next door and she meets Olly, a boy who wears only black and do parkour as if he was some light object. Both of the teen's exchange email and things turn entirely different as they start liking each other. Madeline decided to risk her life to face the outside world (Which she always wanted to) because she thinks she is in love with Olly and love is worth Everything, Everything. It is a story with a strong message of love and more about loving every single second of your life.

Maybe you should grab a copy now and find out what 'Love' can make you do, risking your own life and doing the impossible. As a matter of fact, the movie has done justice to the book, You will get the whole point if you have read the book.
You could be wrong if you think this is one of those, ‘Fault in our Stars’ kind of book. Trust me, it’s different, and you will surely love it.

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Book Review: Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna

Blurb: There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife. In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex is forbidden and emotions cantered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers. About the book: The book is narrated by a woman named, Anshu who is in her early 40’s (divorced) and is childless.  To take a well-earned break, Anshu is in a Kerala Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa, where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions cantered, whilst on her journey to remove dosha, Anshu is met with a familiar, yet a deeply unsettling sight- her philandering ex-husband, Jay, with his much younger wife, Shalini- who is quite opposite from her, both in physical and emotio…

Dolce and Gabbana 'Dolce Floral Drops' Review

“Dolce Floral Drops is fresh and light, yet as precious as a morning caress.” – Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana






For those who know me, would tell you how much I lovehoardingcollecting perfumes. And for those who doesn't, now you do.

Today I will be reviewing a perfume from one of my favourite brands, Dolce and Gabbana ‘Dolce Floral Drops Eau de Toilette.’  I am very particular when it comes to choosing a perfume. I go for mild and delicate or say ‘not so strong’ kind of smell. This time, the pretty Dolce Floral drops caught my attention and I had to give it a try.

The scent is light and fresh with a twist of sweet yet dewy and soothing texture. Going by my preference, I love fragrances which are feminine and sweet, yet a spray and it should stay for long. D&G Floral drops comes in a thick glass, curved lines, and solid bottom, the cap is sculpted in the shape ofa white flower with petals, the bottle is a frosted glass which gives it a misty green colour.
Subtle with a hint of fr…
