PDA or No PDA?

Falling in love is a wonderful and a beautiful feeling, and when it happens, we want the world to know about it. But what it the right amount of showing it? Public Displays of Affection "PDA" can elicit a wide range of reactions at times. How often have you gone out and seen couples getting all cosy in public and stared at them for doing so. Do you favour PDA or just turn away your face from the sight? Is there any "acceptable" limit or is it based on just what the couple finds to be acceptable?

Personally, I am a bit shy, but when it comes to expressing my love, I do not care what others have to say, which does not mean that I would do any sort of thing just in the name of "love." I believe every emotion has various ways in which it can be expressed, doing it publicly or privately does not change your love for someone.
There is a thin line between expressing love and making things look vulgar. Today, the mentality of Indians in changing. They are accepting the fact that love is not something that has to be shown only in a closed space, but it is something, when done in limit, can even be shown publicly, without causing embarrassment.

I love it when people express their love publicly, the way they pamper each other and make each other feel special. It is not like they are proving to the world that they love each other. They just show it when they feel like doing it, not suppressing their feelings for a later time when it would be a "private display of affection." 
It is always a personal choice as to whether we want or do not want to express our love publicly. But what if one person likes doing it but his/her partner does not like it? What is the middle way? Will the person who likes it stop expressing himself/herself because the partner does not like it? Will that person suppress his feelings and save them for a later date and a private space? 
Love is a beautiful feeling. Without you even realizing, it would change you into a totally different person, and invoke all emotions in you. And there is no harm in expressing it unless you do it within the acceptable limits. So go ahead, give a hug, spread love!!!

Some random wedding pictures

I have been surfing the net for some wedding inspiration pictures. These are the random wedding  pictures that I really liked. Hope you like them too.

Waiting for the moment


I love this shot

Jutey le lo, paise de do

Can you see the happiness in her eyes?

Here she comes

I absolutely LOVE the effect!

Taking blessings from Almighty

Can you see my smile?

Love finally found its way!

Beautifully captured, just highlighting the flame

The first dance

It reminds me of the song "Mathe te chamkam waal mere bande de"

Let's make her prettier

Here I come

Showering blessings and love


The shy bride

The spark in her eyes says it all

The unconventional bride

Together, forever

An emotional moment

See how she ends it with a smile

Welcome into a new life

A small haul and my acne

As the wedding day is approaching, my skin in retaliating. I never had acne, and even if I had, it was just 2-3 pimples which would go away, but for the past 3-4 months, it seems like acne from all these years are coming up and conspiring against me. I have it all over my face and I do not feel like looking at myself in the mirror. I had been trying so many products but nothing seemed to work. But slowly, I can see some improvement in the condition, but it is going to take time to complete leave me.

Coming back to the point, here is a small haul that I recently did-

Lotus Herbals Safe Sun DeTAN After Sun Face Pack


I have used this pack twice and I noticed a difference in my complexion. It also gave a nice glow. 

Aaranyaa Anti-Acne Gel

The SA asked me to use this gel for my acne for 15 days and tell him the results. He will take the product back in 15 days in case it does not work. It has been 4 days since I am using this gel. It gives a matte effect on my oily face. It also controls the shine on my face for around 5-6 hours. The acne is settling down but I guess it will take some more time to clear up completely. I will do a complete review after 15 days (And then decide whether I have to return the product to the SA.)

Lotus Herbals Divinedew Herbal Sindoor

I had read a lot of review about this Sindoor and got one for myself in red color. It is a herbal sindoor and hence would not cause any irritation. It is for my wedding trousseau. 

Vaseline 100Pure Petroleum Jelly

We all know the various uses of Vaseline. It is an essential product that has multiple uses. This again is for the trousseau.

I am really hoping that my acne clears up soon. It is really heart-breaking to wake up and see such a face, and then, if that was not enough, people keep asking, "Arre, ye kaise hua?," "Arre, tumhari to shadi hai, or ab ye pimples?" and many more such comments (As if I deliberately made them appear and make me look horrible...huh.)  Hope the products work for me.
