I was never successful in relationships, no one ever loved me seriously and I now nearly find it impossible to get married. For me my life is a party without anyone to party with. I am twisted by life but love brings smile. I have always loved the idea of being in love, having someone who would make me feel stunning evermore. My idea of love used to be like a movie where two people meet, but don’t know they love each other and one fine day the sweet reality dawns upon them. I have an imaginary love story, where everything is perfect. To love someone so much that all that matters to you is being around him, no questions asked and most important no conditions made. My imaginary love story is usually the reason why I sometimes can’t help but accept as true in “may be”, when the sky within is clear and it’s bright in my heart. To have someone to say goodnight is not a big compact, but to have someone who wants you in twinge more than in smiles is what matters. At least my made-up love is like that! I am in love with the idea of being in love and a dream of having a love story and the fact that my life is like a car driving a super fast car in the opposite lane but it doesn’t stop me from imagining a love story I wished, but could never have. They say you can’t live a fairy tale, so who stopped you from dreaming of it.

Ah winter, the season of blizzards and subzero temperatures, of snowfall and coziness and jingle bells. It ends our years and ushers in a new one in all its frozen grace. Now I know that lots of people beg for winter’s end as soon as the first snowflake hits the earth, but this time of tundra has always been my one of my favorite seasons. Winter has such a magic to it; yes it has its brutal moments and you certainly have to be careful, but with precaution and the right positive attitude, winter can be an absolute blast. OK this might be a bit controversial, but hear me out–I actually like the cold quite a bit. There is something clean and refreshing about the cold that the winter brings, something rejuvenating almost when it first starts. However, even more than that, I love getting warm from the cold. Wrapping yourself in sweaters and scarves is super cozy and being able to go inside and curl up with a book and hot chocolate is incredibly comforting and it’s a satisfaction that doesn’t come unless you’d endured the cold first. Some of the magic lies in anticipation and also freezing temperatures all year sounds less than pleasant. Just as there is magic in the first snowfall, there is also a magic in flowers blooming again in spring. I really do love winter, however, and I’m excited for it to come into full swing in just a few weeks.

Sometimes I think people just ought not to have us, because they cannot grip such a high level of pledge and altruism. Because they know they cannot match it and hence they imagine ignoring it. But somewhere, even they know that with each passing day they are becoming smaller and smaller. They cannot accept it, but they cannot ignore it, either. And then they chose to ignore the people who make them feel bitter about themselves. The best way could be to remove the animosity and become the one they fear of. But that requires a high amount of bravery and the highest amount of selflessness; and the path is certainly not easy. So, they choose the easier one. They stop looking at the people, they know, they can never turn into.

I don’t have troublesome hair but I always like exploring new hair products to keep my hair more manageable especially with instant results and I recently got my hands on the Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement. You can now say good bye to frizzy hair with this. I have oily hair but does not mean I don’t oil my hair, the basic oiling is done once a week, but for those women who don’t like the idea of oiling their hair & particularly in times when most of them are working and rushing to college and office, staying with their oiled hair is quite unthinkable and never is in agreement with fashion.
The new product comes in a sleek, golden plastic tube with a golden flip-top cap which makes this easy to use and carry. Thank god it is not leaky oil. The product is whitish in a creamy-gel consistency which is very easy to spread on the lengths & ends of damp, washed hair. My hair has no thick volume so for me I only needed a very little bit and applied it on my hair before combing through it. It instantly detangled my hair and I noticed lesser hair fall due to breakage while combing. After my hair dried, I love how sleek and soft it feels along my frizz controlled to a large extent. It smells amazing which is not weighed down at all.
A little too much can weigh down your hair and make it go greasy so just use according to your hair quantity. Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement is a very good option as a leave-in for your just washed hair mostly & when you are travelling or have to attend any special occasion or even just like that you can use the product every time you shampoo. I hate to attend meetings with any oil because be what it may, it always ends up leaking. I had a small family occasion to meet and I applied the leave in cream after my shampoo and my hair turned amazingly awesome and I was complimented the whole time I was in the party. It makes me super happy when affordable product works just like the high end ones.
How to use
Apply Oil Replacement after using shampoo and conditioner:
Spread the appropriate amount on your hands.
Apply on your wet hair starting from the tips and continuing along the length. No need to rinse it off.
My hair is not dry or damaged but it looks frizzy after a couple of hours, so a cream like this helped to me to manage it for long. My hair moved naturally. At the end of the day too my hair was soft and smooth despite pollution. I have used the product twice and I can say it is definitely is one of the best leave in hair cream I have come across. It worked beautifully on my hair. It suits all types of hair.
Pros of Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement:
- Eye-catching, study travel-friendly packaging
- Beautiful pleasant long-lasting smell
- Creamy texture blends and gets absorbed quickly
- Non-oily, non-sticky and feels light on hair
- Leaves hair soft, smooth and silky
- Softness stays long on hair
- Keeps hair tangle-free and manageable
- Doesn’t weigh down my hair
- Keeps hair naturally bouncy and frizz-free
Cons of Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement:
- Contains alcohol and paraben, so not a perfect replacement for natural oil
- No permanent long-term result

The day you became an adult isn’t the day you think it was.
It isn’t the day you first fell in love or the day your heart first broke.
It isn’t the first time you turned 18,
You are not an adult when you get your licence to drive.
You are not an adult because you had a child.
You are not an adult when you realise that one day you will die.
You are not an adult when you realise one day soon your parents will die.
You are not an adult when you realise you will continue to make the same mistakes.
The day you become an adult is the day that when invited to attend an average event with free alcohol and you think, “No, my time is worth more to me than what I would save drinking free, I would rather pay for my own drinks somewhere I WANT to be.”
Once that happens, you are all grown up, so go out and be immature with your friends. Talk about when you were young.
