Some may splurge to look great but achieving a diva look on a relatively tight budget is easy.

Here are a few tips from Sadiya Naseem, the founder of Glam Studios, to keep your glam quotient up while keeping your budget intact.


Always wear a smile with a little bit of lipstick

A good lipstick is loved by most, and applying it well can enhance your appearance and add confidence to your personality. It may contain moisturizing additives like aloe-vera or Vitamin E, thereby keeping your lips hydrated. Lipstick also works as a sunscreen for your lips. A smile works like a charm when worn with lipstick.

Do regular trims

Trimming your hair at least once a month enhances hair growth by getting rid of split ends and damaged hair. Your hair will break less this way and will grow faster in a shorter duration of time. So, going for regular trims avoid your chance of spending too much on expensive hair treatments.

Yoga to the rescue

It’s not just workout, it’s work-in. Yoga not only keeps your body fit but also keeps your soul healthy. Yoga develops inner awareness. It focuses your attention on your body’s abilities at the present moment. It helps in breathing and proper blood circulation in your body, thereby adding glow to your skin.

Your glow is in your kitchen

The combination of honey and lemon is the best for healthy and glowing skin. It not only lightens the skin tone but also works as an exfoliator for acne, blackheads and other blemishes.

Accessorize the same wardrobe with a new look every time

Accessories are like supplements to fashion, but here you can use them liberally. Wearing a nice scarf, a light kerchief, wearing small pieces of jewellery, or just a handbag same as the colour of your shoes will definitely add oomph to your outfit. (IANS)

Narakasura's death is celebrated as 'Naraka Chaturdashi' popularly known as Choti Diwali

Diwali is arguably one of the most auspicious and celebrated holidays in South Asia. It is celebrated over the span of five days, where the third is considered most important and known as Diwali. During Diwali people come together to light, lamps, and diyas, savour sweet delicacies and pray to the lord. The day has various origin stories with the main them being the victory of good over evil. While the North celebrates the return of Lord Rama and Devi Sita to Ayodhya, the South rejoices in the victory of Lord Krishna and his consort Satyabhama over evil Narakasura.

Narakasura- The great mythical demon King

Naraka or Narakasur was the son of Bhudevi (Goddess Earth) and fathered either by the Varaha incarnation of Vishnu or Hiranyaksha. He grew to be a powerful demon king and became the legendary progenitor of all three dynasties of Pragjyotisha-Kamarupa, and the founding ruler of the legendary Bhauma dynasty of Pragjyotisha.

Safety-pins with charms

For all the great inventions that we have at hand, it is amazing how we keep going back to the safety pin every single time to fix everything. Be it tears in our clothes, to fix our broken things, to clean our teeth and nails when toothpicks are unavailable, to accessorize our clothes, and of course, as an integral part of the Indian saree. Safety pins are a must-have in our homes. But how did they come about at all?

The safety pin was invented at a time when brooches existed. They were used by the Greeks and Romans quite extensively. A man named Walter Hunt picked up a piece of brass and coiled it into the safety pin we know today. He did it just to pay off his debt. He even sold the patent rights of this seemingly insignificant invention just so that his debtors would leave him alone.

Sesame oil bath is also called ennai kuliyal in Tamil

In South India, Deepavali marks the end of the monsoon and heralds the start of winter. The festival is usually observed in the weeks following heavy rain, and just before the first cold spell in the peninsula. The light and laughter that comes with the almost week-long celebration are certainly warm to the bones, but there is still a tradition that the South Indians follow to ease their transition from humidity to the cold.

Just before the main festival, the family bathes in sesame oil. This tradition is called 'yellu yennai snaana' in Kannada, or 'ennai kuliyal' in Tamil, which translates to 'sesame oil bath'. The eldest member of the family applies three drops of heated oil on each member's head. They must massage this oil into their hair and body. The oil is allowed to soak in for a while, anywhere between twenty minutes to an hour. After this, they must wash with warm water before sunrise.
