Book Review: If You Never Try, You Will Never Know by Sahil Mehta

“If you never try, you will never know,” Does this phrase ring a bell of motivation? Yes? This is the title of Sahil Mehta's debut book which I will be reviewing today. The book is a mix of love, ambition, destiny, success, and loss. Robin, the protagonist of the novel, is inspired by his mother’s love for music. However, he is forced to look after the business run by his father which he refuses to. The story is depressing in the first phase; Robin is a drug addict who lives in hallucination and imaginary world, seeing dwarfs and conversing with an imaginary character (whom he consider is his roommate and he thinks resembles his dead brother). Somehow, towards the middle, it made me feel better when he met Aisha whom he falls in love with, and she made him stay sane from his former obsession. As I read, I felt Robin is just like every one of us, trying hard to fit in and fulfill his dream. He believes in himself; he is determined to go past everything and survive till the last. He …

Book Review: Can a Girl and a Boy be Just Friends?

“He knows everything about her, right from her favorite books to her favorite bra. She knows everything about him, right from his favorite soccer club to his favorite x rated websites. He will complete her English homework, even at three in the night. She will arrange an Armani suit for him, even if it calls for flirting with ugly guys. He has her picture in his wallet. She has his number on speed dial. They talk to each other all the time. They talk about each other when they don't talk to each other. They discuss everything from periods to PlayStation. They have tasted alcohol and then thrown up...together. They have bunked countless tuitions... together. They can’t live without each other. YET they don't love each other. They are JUST FRIENDS...”
Can they be just friends? I mean a Boy and a Girl? This is a universal quest everyone is trying to find seek. Some say they can, while the rest says it's not possible. I am asking you this because the title of the book I will be re…

NYX Cosmetics First Exclusive Store at Inorbit Mall, Mumbai

Hi, lovelies!! It's time for some makeup haul! On 2nd September 2017, NYX Professional Makeup officially launched their first ever exclusive flagship store in Mumbai, Inorbit Mall and I was more than excited to witness, be a part of the makeup wonderland. Everyone probably knows that NYX is a cosmetic brand founded in LA by Toni Ko, It is named after Nyx, a Greek goddess of the night, and the name is quite a synonym with makeup junkies, MUA, and everyone for that matter. One of the best things I love about this brand is that they are proud cruelty-free which give them a plus point for an animal lover like me. Okay,  so the store was to open at 10:00 am and by the time I reached people were all lined up to get their hands on their faves. Also, because the first 100 in line was supposed to receive exclusive NYX professional makeup merchandise & goodies, which was obviously one of the reasons they were willing to stand in the long queue. They made the event more exciting with make-ove…

Unboxing and Review: Books N Beyond Box, August 2017

Only a bookworm like me will understand the excitement of getting a book box delivered straight to your doorstep. By now, you already know how much I am a fan of monthly subscription boxes, which includes beauty or lifestyle's product. And a book lover like me will not spare a subscription box which sends curated bookish merchandise alongside one of the best-selling books. To be honest, I was little skeptical about book boxes, because you don’t have the choice of picking up the book you love, you have to do away with what you are served. So, after a lot of research and more research, I stumbled upon this awesome box called 'Books N Beyond' and I thought they were pretty decent based on the reviews and feedback I got. So I left everything behind and started with my monthly trail subscription.
 Joy of reading. Delivered in a Box. About- Books N Beyond- It is a monthly book subscription service that delivers a book along with other bookish merchandise. You can subscribe for m…
