AVON Skin Goodness CC cream Review

By now my readers know that i can't do without BB creams.
I'm not much of a foundation person.
But what does one do when she is about to run out of BB creams?
Actually i had 2 back up skin 79 bb creams while i was still using my Missha no 21.
But some very unthoughtful people decided to take "MY" Missha without even asking permission.
You can imagine how bitter i was since it was my fav BB cream of all time.
And one skin 79 bb cream - i gave it away to an old friend because she really wanted to try Korean BB creams.
Now i have just one with me and was in a panic HIGH ALERT mode when i received this AVon SKin Goodness CC cream for review.
God bless the Avon people.
This has become my summer go-to CC cream.
Read on to know why.

Checklist of Super foods serving as Skin Masques

Summer comes with a host of issues including very high UV index, hot winds and exposure to air conditioning for long hours. 
The high UV index causes photo-damage, while the hot winds and long exposure to air-conditioning units causes dehydration of the skin.
 This combination can be disastrous for the skin and can have long lasting effects. 
Looking after the skin regularly is important in combating this damage but what we consume, also affects the skin. 
Here are a few ‘super-foods’ which when consumed have beneficial effects on the skin and can make the skin glow, give it a soft texture and also reduce the signs of ageing.

My blog Header Evolution Story

 This is a random blog post about the story behind my Header Evolution.
I started this blog as a ranting place when i was doing my internship.
But it gradually became an outlet for my creative side which evolved into something much bigger than i could've dreamt of.
Back then it was called "Skull Bones & Love Of  Fashion" because i was more into fashion.
Lipbalm/gloss was all i used back then.
It was a long and tedious name so after a year or so i changed it to Dr Poison Ivy's Beauty Blog.
And so "the boy" and i sketched this logo for my blog.(you know the girl with green vines as a crown) - Coupon destination

With a new coupon site coming up in India every few minutes, we are left to wonder about how they work and if they are really beneficial to us. is one of the most popular online coupon distribution network. 
It has been around since July 2011

My Hair Care Regime for Hair Fall

 I miss those days when i had super thick and luscious hair.
My hair fall started during med school days- Stress of exams being the main cause which led to Telogen effluvium which continued for 3-6 months.
And exams after exams did no good for my hair.
Even after coming to Delhi the hair fall continued to a point where the cycle became vicious-
Stress---->hairfall----> stress----->hairfall
Until recently i added some new products and my hair fall is reduced to minimal or none.
I couldn't help but share this great news with you all.

First Floor, M16, Outer Circle,
 Connaught Place, New Delhi
M-16Chew Pan Asian Cafe, a gourmand’s paradise for Asian cuisine, hosted a bloggers meet to celebrate the season of Mangoes.
 A perfect start to the weekend, the afternoon was filled with fun and excitement as we were all eager to try some of the yummy Chewlicious desserts.

mangofee pie, mango strawberry mousse cake and the good ol’ vanilla ice-cream with freshly chopped mangoes.
