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)

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-
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.
The idea was to indulge in some scrumptious mango desserts with an innovative twist such as mango panna cotta, mango tart, mango dome,
mangofee pie, mango strawberry mousse cake and the good ol’ vanilla ice-cream with freshly chopped mangoes.

This product has been the most disappointing product of 2014 next to l'Oreal Paris Magique Kajal.
But just because it didn't suit my skin ,it doesn't mean it won't suit you too.
Please remember that all skin care review on my blog is based on my personal experience and what suits me might not work for you and vice versa.

Summer means a lot of sleeveless tops and dresses which needs a lot of personal grooming esp Underarms.
No matter how expensive/fancy clothes you wear, a peek of those hairy underarms is a BIG no no and it ruins the whole look.
I had always wanted to try Underarms Laser Hair Reduction but figured it would be too expensive or just the name "Laser" sounded scary lol
1 month back i was given complimentary service from Kaya Skin Clinic to try their Permanent Laser Hair Reduction and finally gathered the courage to try it out.
The complimentary service consists of 3 sessions. I have already finished 2 and the last session is in June.
For those who wants to know how it feels like or how you can prepare yourself for the session,
read on to know about my experience.
