Book Review: Pyjama Profit by Varun Mayya & Abhinav Chhikara

Just down to chapter 5 and I got a hang of how to freelance and successfully stabilise my income, whilst becoming an expert in my own field. Well, I am referring to the book which I am going to review today- Pyjama Profit- The Millennial's Guide to a Sustainable Freelance Career authored by Varun Mayya Abhinav Chhikara

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: Mark Manson- The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

“Life is essentially an endless series of problems. The solution to one problem is merely the creation of another.”  - Mark Manson  2018 has already blessed us with enough F**k to give. From Dua Lipa’s IDGAF song becoming everyone’s favourite on the playlist to Mark Manson famously acclaimed book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F**Kmaking in the #1 International Bestseller  list. Strange enough, both seemed to have found a place in my favourite 'F' list. I fell in love with this book, even before reading it. I felt it was rather an unusual self-help book with an F-word written on the cover. And somewhere I had the feeling that the book might not teach me about how to live life, but more about how life should be lived without giving a damn F**K. There is a lot of cursing in the book and a lot of F-bomb dropped, so maybe you may want to skip if you are not used to saying/reading the swear lingo.
About the Book Going by the book's title, many would assume it as a Counterintuitive…
