I am a big fan of the bob haircut (hence my hair), not so much of Bollywood though. So why this post? So, I had a different post planned for tonight but at dinner the movie Shaitan was being aired. That is when Kalki’s impeccable bob got me thinking that there this list needs to be created! She is anyways one of the few Bollywood actresses I am a fan of, so her inspiring this post isn’t a huge shocker to me. And FYI this is not the first post about bob haircut on my blog.

This is the first post ever about Packaging Design on TCB, but it was about time. Continue reading

Nowadays, I have increasingly caught myself associating fairy lights with happiness. So, recently on Lohri, we decorated Megha’s backyard garden’s corner with colorful bunting and lots of fairy lights. What came next was a lot of smiles and pictures of course! Simple decorations can indeed trigger considerable shifts in your mood. How can you not smile being amid all this prettiness? Have a look at the garden, plus my friends make the first appearance on TCB. Continue reading
The clothes we wear speak of our choices, and our choices our psyche…..
Almost like clockwork, we get up and get dressed everyday. Or some of us don’t dress in anything besides pyjamas and stay in bed, but that is clockwork too. Either case – you are wearing something.
