Epilation: 10 moments you won’t have to miss if you’re smooth

It is extremely frustrating when you have to cancel your plans just because you are not at your smoothest. What else do you do when you suddenly get an invite from your friends for a fun party or your crush asks you out for a date? Girl, you are not alone. All of us hate those-in-between days when we can’t wear that pretty dress or have to say no to that exciting party just because we are not at our smoothest. However, there is a solution called Braun Epilators that will not let you miss out anything.

Why Epilation?

Epilation is way better than waxing because it provides long lasting smoothness. Since epilation is the process of removal of hair from the roots, it is more efficient than waxing. Moreover, it is gentle and ideal for sensitive skin. Braun Epilators can be used by all women, irrespective of their skin tone, hair color and tan.  So, let’s take a look at the 10 moments that you won’t have to miss because of Braun Epilators:

      1.       Pool Parties

New bikini? Check. New shades? Check. Smooth skin? Check. Now we’re ready to dive right in.

2.      Wearing that new dress

We are talking about the dress that you’ve always wanted to wear, but have always hesitated because you were not super smooth. Braun Epilators can remove hairs as small as a grain of sand. Therefore, no worries now! Get that new dress on and cause a sensation.

3. Uninhibited dancing

When you have smooth skin, you don’t have to hesitate when your favorite music plays. You can dance without any inhibitions, throwing your arms in the air. 

4. Going to the park

On hot summer days, you can wear your favorite shorts and go to the park when you have great, smooth skin. 

5.     Roller coaster pictures

If you love roller coaster rides, there is nothing more exhilarating than flinging your arms in the air with gay abandon and shouting “wheeeeeeeee” from the top of the roller-coaster. You will get great roller coaster pictures when you have super smooth arms and pits.

6.   Leg Day at the gym

It is the perfect opportunity to flaunt your smooth legs to your crush in the gym. Braun Epilators catch hairs 4X shorter than waxing, so you’ll never get caught out!

7.   Rocking your favorite short sleeved tee

If you have silky smooth skin, you can rock your favorite short-sleeved tee on a casual day out with your friends. 

8.   Legfies

Are you sitting under the sun on a beautiful beach with smooth legs? Then take a legfie and post on Instagram. 

9.  Last minute invitation to the beach

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Your crush has finally asked you to the beach. But hold on, how can you rock your cutoffs without smooth skin?

10. Last minute ticket to a gig

Your favorite band is in town and you have finally managed to get the tickets. Now, how to look stunning? Wear your favorite mini skirt or short dress! And rock the look with super smooth legs.

La La Land is for the crazy, dedicated dreamers!

“There are certain emotions in your body that not even your best friend can sympathize with, but you will find the right film and the right book, and it will understand you.”~ Bjork

That was exactly how I felt about the movie “La La Land.” There are some movies that draw you so deep within that you can’t come out of that hangover ever. I watched La La Land on 31st December and even after one full week, I find myself thinking about the movie. 

La La Land is a movie about the crazy and dedicated dreamers, the people who don’t give up on their dreams, no matter how much they have to bear for it. It is about the scar of struggles that people have to undergo while fulfilling their dreams. It is about the power of love that can inspire you to make your dreams come true.

 It tells the story of Mia (played by Emma Stone) who is a struggling actress. She works in a café and goes every day from one harrowing audition to the other. It also tells the story of Sebastian (played by Ryan Gosling) who is a struggling jazz musician. He plays jingles in a restaurant and is not allowed to play jazz as the owner of the restaurant hates it. When he gets carried away and plays jazz one day, he is immediately fired.

 When Mia and Sebastian meet, it is pure magic. They listen and understand each other’s journey. They can empathize with the passion both of them have towards their chosen art form. They inspire each other to rise above the circumstances. Sebastian, who dreams of running his own club, suggests Mia to write a play and perform it. It was extremely heartening to see how these two individuals play such a significant role in each other’s life and lift each other higher. It was soulful to see how Mia and Sebastian’s dreams come true.

La La land is a romantic musical with exceptional cinematography. The music, the dance, the camera work…everything was pitch-perfect. Each and every frame of the movie was poetry in motion. I don’t remember the last time I watched a movie that impressed me so much.

The scars of struggles that were shown in the movie were so relatable, that I guess, anyone who is struggling to fulfill a dream will surely relate to it. There was one scene where Mia breaks down and tells Sebastian that she thinks that perhaps she is not good enough after going through a series of unsuccessful auditions. I could certainly recognize that emotion. I felt the same way when my manuscript got rejected so many times for a wide range of reasons. We all feel that way when we face repeated rejections and the life of every artist has its fair share of rejections.

La La Land also makes you believe in the magic of love. It makes you believe that dreams definitely come true if you don’t abandon them. 

Have you ever felt angry when someone has not shown respect to your favorite art form? 

Do you wake up every morning with the desire to work towards your dreams? 

Have you ever faced a breakdown moment at night due to repeated rejections/failures and yet did not abandon your dream? 

Do you feel there is perhaps someone like you in this world who can understand your journey?

If you have answered yes to even one of the questions, you must watch La La Land. It is cinema and storytelling at its best.

When I saw myself in a parallel world

Sitting in lotus position,
I close my eyes
Let myself drown and then float gently
On the soothing meditation music
I slowly travel to a distant land
Where harmony and beatitude exist.

I see a carpet of verdant grass
Yellow and pink blooms
Whimsical butterflies dancing around
I notice a girl; wind in her hair
Her laughter uninhibited
As she followed the butterflies,
Chasing them until she is tired.
Holding her belly, she then lies down
On the lush green meadow.

Glowing with contentment and gratitude,
She gives me a radiant, genuine smile
I open my eyes with a smile
As I softly realize I saw myself
In a parallel world,
Brimming with inner peace and happiness.

-Purba Chakraborty

Linking this poem with Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Vision

When I saw the prompt 'vision', so many things came in my mind. I definitely want to be a very successful writer and fulfill all my dreams. I want to travel a lot and do social work. And there are so many other things that I aspire to achieve. But first of all, I would want to be a person made of inner peace and inner happiness who can spread peace and happiness all around her.

One of my resolutions for 2017 is to do yoga and meditation regularly. This poem is inspired from my visions during meditation and the picture is from my trip to a spiritual destination of West Bengal, Mayapur in 2016. When I was in Mayapur for 2 days, I experienced a lot of inner peace. So, I thought this picture would be apt for the poem.

A Little Blue Bird

A little blue bird
Greeted me this morning
I recognized him at once
My beautiful old friend,
My only source of solace
In the gloomy days of last year.

I smiled and said him a 'hello'
He studied me for a while
Then cooed blithely; his happiness palpable
"What makes you happy, little bird?"
"Your smile that is shining in your eyes
I see you've risen above pain, little human
Finally outgrown those who've hurt you."
We gazed at each other for a minute
Silently revering our bond
I blew a flying kiss
He cooed once again and flew away.

A little blue bird
Has a piece of my heart
Perhaps he is from some fairy tale
Carrying some pixie dust 
Meeting him on new year was pure joy.

-Purba Chakraborty

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and blessed new year!
