Hello, you guys! We have successfully reached the 5th day of the Fall Party. It makes me happy and sad at the same time. Happy, because I think I am doing great by posting everyday and sad because we have two more days until the party is over. But, not to worry, I have a lot of exciting posts coming after that! So, today’s post will be about an easy-peasy  brownie recipe. I call this the lazy people’s brownie. Anyways, let’s start.

I love baked food, especially brownies because they are so easy to make and you can eat them hot! Waiting for a cake/brownie is just not possible for me. Recently, I found a lazy edition of brownie that you can make in your coffee mugs! If you are a person that gets midnight cravings, like me, this recipe is perfect for you. Put all of your ingredients in a mug, microwave it and you are ready! Check out the recipe below-


All purpose flour (maida)- 50 g
Castor sugar- 30 g (Depends on how sweet you want your brownie to be. I like it semi-sweet.)
Butter- 2 tbsp (melted)
Coco Powder- 2 tbsp
Milk- 50 ml


First, mix the dry ingredients in a microwave-safe mug. Then add the wet ingredients. Keep mixing until the mixture turns smoother. Clean up the edges and put the mug in the oven. Microwave in 100% (900w) for 3 minutes. Take out the mug and serve hot with some vanilla ice-cream.

Isn’t it easy? Do try this recipe at home and let me know how yummy it was! I will be back again with a new post tomorrow. Till then, be happy & keep smiling!

Face masks are such a stress buster. During the lockdown, I have inclined more and more towards them as they felt so calming and rejuvenating that it won’t be an exaggeration if I say they kind of acted as a respite from the crazy world. In the past seven months, I have tried many face masks amongst which a couple have become my ultimate favourites. One of them is the Deyga Rose and Mulethi Face Pack. I’ll discuss everything about it as elaborately as possible as I always do.

About Deyga-

This face pack can also help even the skin tone and provide a nourished, soft, and supple feeling to the skin.

You can purchase the Rose & Mulethi face pack here.


This face pack comes in a sturdy transparent glass jar with a  metal screw-on lid.  Although the packaging makes it less appropriate for travelling the glass they have used is very good quality and also, it makes it eco-friendly. The transparency of the jar allows you to keep a tab on the amount of product you’re left with.

Deyga Rose and Mulethi Face Pack texture

Texture & Smell-

The rose and mulethi face pack comes in a fine dust form and the fragrance is a mild rose fragrance. They haven’t used any artificial colours or perfumes in this product so what you get is absolutely natural.

How to Use-

Take about a tablespoon or two full of the Rose and Mulethi pack in a bowl, mix it with some milk or rose water and make a paste out of it. Apply the paste thickly and evenly across your face, leave it for about 15 minutes or until 80% dry and wash it off using gentle circular massaging strokes.

My Experience with Deyga Rose and Mulethi Face Pack-

Deyga Rose and Mulethi Face Pack Review | Cherry On Top Blog

I absolutely love rose as an ingredient in my skincare products. It took me a really long time to actually notice the benefits of rose on my skin. I would say it was somewhat an acquired liking but I am glad I fell in love with this powerful ingredient.

The first thing that attracted me towards the Deyga Rose and Mulethi face pack is its impressive ingredients list. This brand never fails to excite me. It’s been a month since I have been using it and it did not cause any breakout or skin irritation on me. I like to use this on days my skin needs some extra TLC and it beautifully does that. It provides me with a healthy glow, clears the skin and evens out the skin tone with regular use. It also makes your skin look youthful and the best thing is that it provides the skin with the perfect amount of moisture. This mask makes my skin baby soft which I absolutely love. You have to use it for at least two weeks to see the effectiveness. This is very normal with any natural skin care product. You can use it up to twice a week as it is completely natural and organic.

One should definitely check this product as well as the brand out for their eu natural ingredients and effectiveness. The ingredients they use are 100% organic, 100% Indian, handmade and cruelty-free. Also, this product is for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin, you must do a patch test beforehand.

Overall, this product is something you must give a try if you are fond of natural and organic skincare or you are planning to start your natural skincare journey. I absolutely love this product and the brand in total. You can check out their entire collection here. I must not compare, but I feel Deyga products could be the closest dupe of the Juicy Chemistry products that too in a decent price range.

You guys all know my undying love for scrubs. I also categorize them according to my preferences. Some I like on a daily basis, some on the days I pamper my skin and some for special occasions. Today, I am going to talk about the Vasu Sugar Scrub– a new face scrub that I recently came across. This scrub belongs to the last category I mentioned earlier. This particular product is a new addition to my skincare stash, however, the brand is not. I have previously used their Kumkumadi Thailam facial beauty oil. Will talk about it some other day. Today’s product in focus is the sugar scrub and I am already excited to know your views on this.

I know many of you have used sugar scrubs before but I want to know how many of you used them for your facial skin. I am wondering because I have always been sceptical about using any sugar-based exfoliants on my face as I always feared they might be too rough for the skin. I remember one such incident where I used a homemade sugar scrub on my face and I got dry patches on certain parts of the skin.  I have used them for my body many a time though. Had I not used the Vasu  Sugar Scrub, I might never overcome this fear. This is probably the mildest sugar scrub you’ll find in India, or maybe the only one. Believe me, I am not exaggerating.


Originally ₹750 but now at 50% off ₹375 (for 50g). Available on-
Amazon- https://amzn.to/3d387Fv
VasuStore: https://www.vasustore.com/vasu-kumkumadi-tailam-sugar-scrub-age-revitalizing


The Vasu Sugar Scrub is full of some extraordinary ingredients that make it a unique formulation. They say it is enriched with the power of 22 herbs. The key ingredients are-

  • Natural Sugar & Black Sand– that effectively exfoliates dead cells, dirt, grime and sebum leaving the skin squeaky clean and also helps it breathe properly.
  • Kumkumadi Thailam– is a unique ayurvedic blend of herbs that not only provides you with a brighter looking skin but it is also a secret recipe for a radiant glow in the skin. Apart from these, it also has some great anti-septic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Kumkumadi oil is the ancient anti-ageing secret for the skin.
  • Vitamin E– is a source of powerful antioxidants that fights free radicles and helps in reducing the signs of ageing. It also makes the skin brighter by fading out the blemishes to a great extent.



The packaging of this product is very basic, just the way I prefer. It comes in a transparent plastic jar with a screw lid. The transparency of the jar allows you to keep a check on how much product you’re left with. It also has a stopper lid inside that helps to make it secure enough for travelling. Although the plastic packaging is easier and safer to handle and to carry with you, I still wish if they can come up with a glass packaging. Overall I like it because it’s travel-friendly, doesn’t spill or leak.

Texture & Fragrance-

Vasu Kumkumadi Thailam Sugar Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of this is very unique, something I experienced for the first time in my life. It is a sand-like texture but you can feel the mildness of it once touched. The consistency is thick and sticky consistency but I spread effortlessly on the skin.  It is a light golden-brown colour with visible sugar granules and some black particles which I assumed must be the black sand.

The fragrance is a very soothing ayurvedic smell. As far as my nose could perceive, the product smelled mostly of saffron, sandal and a little bit of honey and I am quite convinced as the first two are generally present in Kumkumadi oils. Kumkuma- the main ingredient in Kumkumadi oil is saffron. These make the product quite aromatic and it is something that doesn’t bother you.

How to Use Vasu Sugar scrub-

  • Wet your face and neck,
  • Take a dollop of the scrub on to your palm and rub it between your palms to spread the product evenly before applying.
  • Gently massage your face with the product in circular motions focusing the nose, chin or any other problematic areas on your face.
  • Rinse your face thoroughly with cold water.

About 1-2 minutes of massage would be sufficient as you won’t want to over-exfoliate your skin. You must use this product on wet skin as the consistency is quite thick and it won’t spread on the skin evenly only to make it tough to massage properly. You are advised to use this scrub once or twice a week for better results.

My Experience with the Vasu Sugar Scrub

Vasu Kumkumadi Thailam Sugar Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

I have already told you my experience with sugar scrubs before Vasu Sugar Scrub came into my life. Now, I am going to share my experience after using this product for almost a month. First of all, I am in love with the texture of this. It is exactly how I like my exfoliators to be, loaded with scrubbing particles. If you and I have the same taste in scrubs, you’ll love this product to the core. It comes in a 50g jar but that lasts for long as a little goes a long way.

The sugar granules in it remove dead cells and impurities very effectively without being harsh on the skin. It’s very mild and gentle which is quite unusual for sugar scrubs. This product contains the goodness of Kumkumadi oil that is well-known for its magical properties that adds a youthful glow to the face and is a natural anti-ageing agent. Apart from these, the product is free from any toxins and harmful chemicals, it’s a completely plant-based product, cruelty-free and dermatologically tested.

I use it on the days my skin needs some TLC. I take some of it and apply gently on to my skin. It dissolves on the skin after massaging for a few seconds and turns into a runny form of exfoliant. After washing my face with water, my skin instantly feels clean and rejuvenated. It makes the skin brighter and comparatively tighter with regular use.

Reasons to love this scrub

  • Eliminates dirt, grime, and sebum
  • Provides intense moisturization
  • Gentle yet effective
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enriched with the power of 22 herbs
  • Made In India
  • 40 Year of Excellence & Available in 40+ Countries

I will highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good sugar scrub that doesn’t irritate the skin and at the same time provides intense moisturization.

Hello, there! I am pretty sure you’ve landed on this blog post because you’ve been in a creative shutdown and now you are looking for some ideas and inspirations to successfully survive this quarantine phase through some fun writing that will engage your audience. Welcome! I have some cool quarantine blog post ideas to get your creative juices flowing again.

The whole CoVid-19 outbreak followed by the drawn-out lockdown period has definitely taken a toll on all of us, especially those that are in a creative field. Being creative and productive is way harder than it seems. One needs to be calm, at peace and mentally stable. Unfortunately, at least for me, it just had been the opposite since the past couple of months. My head is always full of scattered thoughts, most of which include death, destruction and uncertainty. My creative friends would agree that this is clearly not the ideal situation to keep oneself creative or productive. This resulted in writer’s blocks many a time which makes me believe there are many who might be feeling the same as me. 

25 Quarantine Blog Post Ideas to Overcome Creative Block | Cherry On Top
Pin it, folks!

You can jump straight into my list of blog post ideas OR you can continue reading to get a guide for coming up with unique blog post ideas when in a creative deprivation. As the purpose of this post is to share a list of ideas and not sharing ‘how-to’s, I will not be as descriptive in this part as I’d have love to. Maybe I’ll write a separate post on it if you like this type of content. Now, let’s start with the pointers.

How to Think of Blog Post Ideas | Cherry On Top Blog
Pin it, folks!
  1. Keep an eye on the trends: A trending topic not only will help you with tons of ideas around it to play with but also it will drive more traffic to your blog than usual. A win-win, right? You can use search engines, Google Keyword Planner tool or Google Trends to know which topics are trending right now and plan your content according to it.
  2.  Rummage through Pinterest: Believe me, Pinterest is a secret (not really!) chest of different ideas when it comes to creating content. On Pinterest, you get tons of fresh ideas every time you refresh your home page. They have different creators sharing bunches of unique content on various topics. You can take ideas from there and add your own magic to it. If you happen to be on Pinterest, don’t forget to check me out there
  3. Take Ideas from Blogosphere: If you are blogging for some time, you must have made blogger friends or have followed a bunch of bloggers that you look up to. If the answer is yes, I believe you are following their work via email or RSS or maybe you use Bloglovin (your girl is there too!) You can always see what others are doing and take some inspiration from there. Remember NOT to copy someone’s work. That’s shameful!
  4. Ask Your Audience: In this era of social media, why not take the help of it when needed? Ask what your audience want on your blog. Create Instagram stories with Question sticker or simply post on Facebook status. I’m sure you’ll get tons of ideas.

Skincare and haircare start way early in our lives even before we realise its benefits. Since our childhood, we have seen our moms and grandmoms oiling our hair, sometimes with added herbs and seeds, on a day to day basis. When I was younger, my mom made sure she oils my hair at least three times a week and I absolutely hated the idea. I used to hate greasy hair. But, eventually, it turned out to be so beneficial for my hair. Everyone around me, or on the internet, compliments my hair and asks me the secret. It has always been half my mother’s care and affection towards my hair and half the blessings of nature. Sometimes my mom and grandmom used to soak methi seeds or kalonji seeds to the hair oil overnight to make the oil even more efficacious. Recently, Nihar Naturals, one of India’s leading wellness brand has come up with a new hair oil called Nihar Extra Care which follows the century-old traditional theory of soaking different seeds in the hair-oil. I couldn’t be happier!

Last month, the entire Nihar Naturals team along with their Brand Ambassador, Vidya Balan, came down to Kolkata to launch their new product i.e. Nihar Extra Care hair oil in front of some of the city bloggers. I was one of them and I got to know about the brand and the new launch minutely.

Nihar Extra Care hair oil is actually a coconut oil that dispenses through a mix of five different types of seeds when you try to take it out. In the next picture, you’ll get a clear idea. The seeds they have used are Methi, Sarson, Kalonji, Lauki and Til. Together with the coconut oil, they claim to nourish your hair, strengthen it and arrest hair fall. The base oil is coconut oil which alone has multiple hair care properties.

Benefits of the seeds-

The oil is packed with five types of seeds and every seed has a unique property. Let’s know more-

Methi- Strengthens hair and reduces hair fall.

Sarson- Helps hair growth and conditions hair.

Kalonji- Nourishes hair follicle and reduces hair fall.

Lauki- Reduces hair fall.

Til- Promotes hair growth.

How the Nihar Extra Care hair oil works-

1. Tilt & squeeze to bring the oil to the cap.

2. Soak to let the oil mix with the seeds.

3. Pour & use as desired. Apply from root to tip of your hair.

Basically, Nihar Extra Care hair oil gives you the same benefits as hair oil soaked with different seeds just like the traditional recipe but in a more hassle-free way. You don’t need to think about doing all of it together. Nihar has taken care of everything so they have done the packaging in a way that it can be used by today’s women who have no time to pamper themselves.

Nihar Extra Care hair oil is priced at ₹119 for 200ml.

The bath time memories are one of the sweet ones. Many people take it to be the most relaxing phase of life. After a whole day of tiresome jobs, we need to have a bath time that will give us the peace of the mind by the sweet smelling aromatic substances. One of such mixture is the peppermint bath salts. The peppermint bath salts are an awesome solution to be a pleasant experience for you and your family.

The bath salts are just not a thing to give us a relaxation but also are very easy to prepare. So, let me explain to you how this is made beautifully to give you the pleasure.

The materials required are Epsom salt in its natural form of about 2 cups, the sea salt or the kosher salt of about half a cup. Some amount of baking soda of about half a cup, peppermint essential oil of about 15 to 20 drops, the food coloring is also an additional option to increase the look of the soap.


The recipe is an easy one and is one of the best DIY tricks. The preparation of the recipe in steps can be explained as follows:

  • Step 1: All the three ingredients that include the Epsom salt, the sea salt, and the baking soda is to be mixed together to make a beautiful mixture.
  • Step2: You need to stir the peppermint oil into the mixture for some time. The quantity of the peppermint oil must not be in excess because it will hamper the composition of the mixture.
  • Step3: Some people like to add some colors to their bath soap. So, you may add a color according to your choice. But before that just, separate the material into two different portions and then just add about 4 to 8 drops of the food color you want.
  • Step 4: You may also go for adding more layers to the already existing soap. But if you desire to do this, you must drain out the salts before doing so.

Hence only by applying the about four steps, you can get an absolute touch of the beautiful ingredients of nature. The natural components without the addition of an excess of any chemical components can be a very beautiful one to give a rich fragrance to your body, a beautiful and fair skin.


A touch of aesthetic, ethnic values, as well as the spiritual values in the form of substances, books, goods and home decors, can give us a perfect atmosphere to enjoy our self. So, you must also try to feel the values of the products from this beautiful company. The moments and the relaxation will make you feel at the top of the world. So, have a super cool time enjoying all the beautiful things in life.

Being a woman in today’s world is harder than ever. Oftentimes, ladies are forced to combine a full-time job, personal life, family or kids-related responsibilities, physical activity, and active social life all at once. At the same time, people (read: men) expect us to always look good, feel energized, and wear high heels 24/7. With so many expectations and demands the society has put on tender female shoulders, there is no wonder we ladies feel stressed out every now and then.

In light of this, it becomes especially important to allocate some time in our busy schedule for procedures and activities that are relaxing and revitalizing at the same time. Many women will agree that one of the greatest activities of this kind is Spa procedures. With this in mind, I’ve decided to make a list of 10 DIY ideas of how to make a Spa day at home. Trust me, they have the same wonderful effect as procedures in Spa/salon but don’t affect your budget as drastically as the latter do.

Quick note: The DIY Spa ideas mentioned below will work especially good in combination with each other.

Take a Restorative Hot Bath

Taking a hot bath is a relaxing activity in its own right, but you may take it one step further and decide to light some aroma candles, pour yourself a glass of quality wine (or fresh juice if you’re a healthy foodie), turn some relaxing music on. To make the experience even better, mix essential oils with some aromatic flowers and pour the mass into your hot bath. You are free to choose flowers you like, but keep in mind there are flowers that are especially good for Spa procedures.

Use a Skin Scrub to Delight Your Body

Apart from being a useful beauty procedure, things like skin scrubs are also a perfect fit for an at-home Spa day. If you wonder why it is so, I’ll explain it briefly. There are plenty of DIY Scrub recipes based on coffee, cocoa, honey, etc. Most of them won’t take you a lot of time to make, and you’ll be sure the scrub you put on your skin does not contain any harmful chemicals. Choose among hundreds of receipts and delight your body with a fragrant natural scrub.

Do a Self-Massage to Reduce Chronic Muscle Tension

Most of us have chronic muscle tensions we’re so used to that we no longer consider it a big deal. The most problematic zones are your back, neck, and shoulders. Take some time to knead your muscles with your fingers; this will surely help you to loosen up.

Make Yourself a Foot Soak

Believe it or not, but foot soak is believed to be one of the most stress-relieving procedures you can do at home. While hot water is relaxing in its own right, you can boost the effect by adding some sea salt and essential oils. Your feet will be as soft and tender as never before.

Give Yourself a Steam Treatment

Facial steam can make wonders to your skin, and the good news that it’s easy to do at home. All you need to do is clean your face thoroughly, boil some water (½ litre tends to be enough), select herbs and essential oils such as lavender, green tea, chamomile or mint, prepare a towel and get ready for your steam time.

Do Manicure and Pedicure

Unless you are one of those who cannot (or do not want to) master the art of DIY manicure and pedicure, this procedure is an absolute must for your at-home Spa day. Ideally, do your mani and pedi right after a hot bath. This way, you won’t have any problems removing your fingernail cuticles.

Try a Homemade Hair Mask

Before you get nerve-wrecked at the thought of finding and mixing some complicated ingredients, let me tell you there’s no need to worry. Something as simple as coconut oil can make your hair shiny and silky overnight.

Make Yourself a Green Smoothie

Or Lemon Water. Or anything else that will nourish your body with essential nutrients and vitamins, and will make you feel more energized and generally better. Needless to say, fresh juices will do the job too.

Turn Down the Lights and Use Candles

Thanks to our smart hormonal system, our body gets relaxed when there is no source of bright light around. That is why it is recommended to turn all the lights off when going to bed at night. To help yourself get calm and relaxed, replace the artificial light with the natural light of candles.

Soften Your Hands

If you have enough time and motivation, consider making a mask for your hands. If you’re too tired or just lazy (which is nothing to be ashamed of), take your favourite hand cream and massage your hands for at least 5 or 10 minutes.

As you see, it is not a rocket science to make your own Spa at home. All you need is some essential oils, fragrant flowers, hot water, and the desire to have a truly relaxing day spent at home.

My Views on Ashtapathy Herbals Bathing Bars

Ashtapathy Herbals Bathing Bars Review

My first impression on these soaps is that they smell so good! They smell like raw natural/herbal product that they actually are. All the soaps are gentle on the skin and they do not dry out the skin. I would like to talk especially about the Olive Soap that was so smooth and it made my skin soft, supple and visibly healthy. I applied the Mud soap on the body as well as on my face and the result was amazing. The Multani mitti in the soap actually worked well on my oily t-zone and my face felt less oily for quite sometime after the wash. It did not strip off the skin making it dehydrated. The Deva Thali soap was an okayish soap, great for everyday essential use. It cleanses the skin very well giving it proper hydration. These soaps are not fast melting, they last for more than 15 days if properly used.

It also tackles and removes excessive oil as well as toxins from scalp. Regular use makes hair radiant and beautiful. An ideal shampoo for everyday use.

My Views on Ashtapathy Herbals Hair Cleansers-

To be honest, I enjoyed using the Deva Thali shampoo more than the Mud shampoo. Although I have very oily scalp and the Mud shampoo did work on that but it also did tend to dry out my already dry hair. I have a combination hair type- my scalp is oily and hair is dry. So, if you have my type of hair, I would suggest you go for the Deva Thali shampoo instead of the Mud shampoo. The Deva Thali shampoo worked quite well on my hair. It cleansed the scalp, made the hair soft and shiny. Both of the shampoos did not cause hair fall during the shower. It felt really great to use pure and natural products on my hair after continuously treating it with chemicals.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Ashtapathy Herbals products. Their products are available exclusively at Shesha Beauty. A lot of you had asked me to review some new natural skin and hair care products on my Facebook Page, so here it is for you!

If you follow me on Snapchat, you’d know that I got inspired by Komal of MyHappinesz and tried baking a scrumptious Oreo cake. You’d have watched me use my new Tupperware Ultimo Speedy Chef to mix the cake batter.

So, let’s get started-

Baking Made Easy with Tupperware Ultimo Speedy Chef| Cherry On Top

Price- Rs 3800/-

Tupperware Ultimo Speedy Chef is such a fuss-free, easy-to-use kitchen tool for working men and women and also for those who don’t like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and for those who are constantly in search of something that makes cooking easier. This small kitchen aid is dishwasher and microwave safe and takes very little space in your kitchen. It comes with an anti-skid foot ring. It also has measurements written on the body which is really helpful. This Speedy Chef is basically a manual whipping and whisking tool that could be used to beat eggs for omelettes, make mayonnaise, mix cake batter, whip fresh cream, whisk egg whites faster than your usual whisk and also, it is noise-free, unlike your electric beater. Obviously, it is not as fast as an electric beater but you can regulate how much smooth or coarse you want your mixture to be. Plus, it has a hole on the top of the handle which allows you to add flavourings while mixing or whisking anything. Here is all that you can do with your Tupperware Ultimo Speedy Chef-

  • Prepare whipped cream for decorating cakes and desserts. Add flavouring such as vanilla essence through the funnel.
  • Prepare light pancake batters, omelettes, mousses and other whisked desserts.
  • Prepare light mayonnaise or dips. Remove the cover and whisk in your favourite freshly chopped herbs and flavouring.
  • Prepare wonderfully light sponge cakes, pavlovas and meringues by beating up egg whites in the Speedy Chef.
