TAG: 9 Tumblr Question Challenge

Hey there!

How are you doing? Having good day??(It will be so cool if someday people would actually answer me in comment section that, “Yea, I’m having great day 🙂 ” or “No, It just sucks 😡 ” or anything.) I hope you all are having good day.

So, you might know that I love reading TAG posts and challenges and so I found this super cool tumblr account who has list of TAG challenges. And I found this 9 question challenge which has really nice questions. Honestly I want to read answers of other bloggers as I find it best way to communicate and get to know them. So I will write down my answers and tag some bloggers.(If you’re tagged and you don’t want to participate than don’t and if you’re not tagged and still wanna participate, consider yourself tagged.) You can make a post on it or you can write in comment section, whatever you find comfortable.


1. What’s your definition of beauty?
(I really believe that “Beauty is in the eye of beholder.”)
About my view on beauty. I find that the people who are comfortable with their flaws are most beautiful people (may be because it’s so difficult. I am not that comfortable with my flaws and that’s why the blog is called ‘The Ugly Duckling’s Life’). And of course a good heart and intellectual mind is just lovely.

2. Have you ever change your appearance or personality when meeting someone new?
No. May be personality, a tiny bit. I mean I can’t be entirely myself when I’m meeting someone new for the first time. I’m usually shy. But once I get comfortable with someone I’m crazy weird.(Now I can’t be that, can I?)

3. When’s the last time you dedicated your time to do homework, project, etc?
If I consider blog post as a project than I’m doing it right now. If I think about school work it would be last month before final submission of our work.

4. What’s your fears? Did you overcome those fears?
(Where do I begin.!)
Ok, seriously, Height, Water, bugs. I’m ok with fear of height and water as long as I have someone I trust around me. But fear of bugs is still there. I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon.

5. What’s the appropriate age to marry someone you love?
Any age. As long as two people fully understand the meaning of marriage it’s fine.(of course you have to be legally old enough to get married).

6. Have you ever done anything extreme over the years?


(still thinking………)

I can’t think of anything. I tried to scare off the lizard yesterday.(If that counts.!) My heart was pounding out of my chest.

7. List your dream team. (Put together 5 celebrities, athletes, fictional characters etc you would like to see work with someday)
Channing Tatum, Hulk, Vin Diesel,Jim Carrey, Tweety.(weirdest, I know.)

8. Have you or someone ever stood up to someone?
Yes. There was this mean teacher in school when I was in 11th Standard. I actually thought he was psycho.

9. What’s the most difficult decision you had to make?
If I should let myself forgive someone I really hated. I have actually never hated anyone but that person. Now I don’t hate him. Still haven’t forgiven. But getting there.

The Bloggers I wanna see answer these questions are

TAG, You’re it!

Hair Remedy from your Kitchen

Hey there..
How are you doing??
I was having a bad hair day because I didn’t style it at all after washing it yesterday. And I didn’t have anywhere to go today so I decided to pamper myself a little with good homemade (dadima ka nuskha) hair mask with the stuff you’ll find in your kitchen.

What you need is
1 egg
1 tablespoon honey
1  tablespoon olive oil (if you have really long thick hair use 2 egg and 2 tablespoon olive oil)

I used this oil called mahabhrungraj which has different kind of oils and herbs and Ayurveda medicine oils. It’s optional.image

Mix all this well and apply it to your hair roots and massage it gently. Leave it for at least 30 mins and than wash it with cool water and shampoo.

I’d suggest not to use styling tools after washing your hair(You’ve just nourished your hair and damaging more with heat isn’t really great idea)

This hair mask will help you with hair thinning issue. If you use styling tool this mask is something you should do at least twice a month. It will nourish your hair make it softer and smoother. Isn’t that nice!? I’ve read and even tried using mayonnaise for hair which is basically egg yoke and olive oil mixed so well together but I’d suggest not using that. Because they use preservatives and stuff. So better you crack an egg by yourself and mix olive oil in it.

Have lovely hair day. Loads of love. Take good care of yourself.

There are times when some songs just express your emotions so much better than you ever can(even if you are great with words when it comes to expressing yourself). That is the reason why I love music, why I have this music video posts.

Love,Take care.

Sunday Special Side-dish!! (does it make sense!!??)

Kela Raita

This one is my Baa’s(my grandmother on my mother’s side) recipe.
We used to have it every Sunday with any meat curry or Biryani. (A secret, I used to sometimes sneak in when everyone was sleeping and would make myself some of it and have it when I was a kid) It’s really easy.


  1. 150 gram curd or yogurt (whatever you call it)
  2. Sugar  (depending on your how sweet you like it)
  3. Mustard seeds freshly crushed
  4. 1 least spicy kind of chilli chopped (take out the seeds)
  5. Coriander or parsley for garnish.


  1. Take a bowl add in yogurt, sugar, chilli and crushed mustard seeds and mix it well.
  2. Now add the chopped banana.
  3. Put it in refrigerator for at least half an hour.
  4. Add in some coriander on top before you serve and enjoy.

Tip: add in a table spoon of sour cream or regular cream and mix well before you put it in refrigerator. It’ll taste real good.(skip if you’re on strict diet, unlike me, hehe)

Loads of love, Take good care of yourselves.

Hey there!
Did you know that nutmeg can have hallucinating effect on you if consumed too much.

I just love the aroma you get when you grate it fresh. Once I made simple vanilla cake but thn at the end I added little freshly grated nutmeg and thn added some chopped walnut. Best cake ever. Trust me. I love those spices which works great with sweet and savoury dishes. And nutmeg is one of them.

Are you wondering why I’m saying all this?  Because I just wanted to share this photo and of course my love for spices as well. wpid-20150404_152543-01.jpegWhat’s your favorite spice? (I can’t chose one because I love them all, and kind of need them all)

Have fun there. Loads of love. Take good care of yourselves.
