Making herb infused oils is an easy way to enhance your health and cooking. I love making my own skin care creams, salves, and serums using herb infused oil. It’s also a wonderful way to get the amazing medicinal benefits of herbs in your recipes. Making herb infused oils is an easy way to enhance your health and cooking.

My personal preference is a good quality olive oil. It has natural antioxidants and anti-viral properties, making it great for an infused face oil or any salve if you will.
We’re going on almost a year of living in all things cozy and I for one am not tired of it haha( ok may be a little tired but that is mostly attributed to endless WFH and Zoom fatigue if you may). Sharing a few of my favourites for this season.
Hi everyone!, I hope you and yours are doing well. I just thought of making a quick and short post on propagating roses. I want to do an elaborate home gardening post about how to plan, organise and plant your garden as spring approaches but given my hectic schedule I haven’t been able to get to it. Without further adieu lets get into a quick how to propagate roses post. I will be using Indian roses but I have heard the same process can be repeated for other varieties. I don’t prefer using chemicals such as rooting hormones so I am going to do this as naturally as possible, as god made them.
We live in a world of constant consumption where we keep getting told that the key to happiness is more of everything, this could be items in our closet, products that we don’t even need, lifestyles that we need to upscale, expensive purchases that rack up our credit card debt and a constant longing for me. Coming to beauty- its one of the most unregulated industries, I see countless number of brands pop up everyday with their own “luxury” line of beauty products which I find hard to believe. My simple rule of beauty and cosmetics is that I will only apply a product on my skin if I can eat it. You may say thats weird but my reasoning for that is that your skin is the largest organ of your body. Anything you feed is is going to get absorbed and consumed by the outermost layers of your skin and eventually your bloodstream.
I would like to start this post by checking in you and hoping that you are all safe and healthy. In case any of you are recovering from any illness my love and good wishes to you. I know last year has been a whirlwind of crazy and this year 2021 isn’t looking great either. Yes there is a vaccine available now but its effectiveness is something only time can tell. The pandemic isn’t going anywhere and neither are we.But with that being said I would like to wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day
We are living in strange times where it is getting harder and harder to survive without social contact and boredom has become part of our daily lives. Well you don’t really need a reason to be happy. But with the capitalistic and materialistic society we live in , we need “reasons” to be happy. so here is a list. Print it out and add it to your refrigerator. Let the gratefulness warm your hearts everyday.Do what makes you happy and you will never have a dull moment.Own less do more, think less, worry less be happy.Being happy already you will suddenly realise that the things you were always seeking did not matter so much after all…

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on. “Like a comet pulled from orbit, As it passes a sun. Like a stream that meets a boulder, Halfway through the wood. Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better? But I have been changed for good.” ThoseRead More
Minimalism has taken the world by storm. Not only does a minimalist lifestyle eases the burden on overused credit cards, financial uncertainty and environmental concerns it also teaches you that there is more to life than material possessions.Being a minimalist is a state of mind, and not a set of rules.It helps you focus. Decluttering is therapeutic and helps relieve the stress.Open spaces also spark creativity and joy.
Quoi Porter is french for ‘What to Wear’ which sums up the dilemma every woman goes through in the morning.Don’t we all want to stay up to date with the current trends and wish to have couture in our wardrobe?
