Its finally here !!! Im in this fortnight’s Femina Made By You issue and this time…Im on the cover !!!! YIPPPEEEE!



So basically, Femina contacted me asking if i would be interested in answering a few reader queries. I was all ears..i love being the agony aunt at times!! That was followed by a tiny photoshoot (i was told to wear a crisp white shirt and jeans) and now here i am!!! Im still waiting to see if i can get my hands on the shoot photos , i would definitely share them once i do get them!

The photoshoot experience was funnnn!! But also a bit nerve wracking- i was shown a reference pic of Pooja Bedi standing in a white shirt with her hands in her pocket and was told to by the photographer “Look confident like her” . Ummm……ok. I did a few regular poses and the photographer was like “Smile chahiye, Smile aur karo” . Damnit, they didnt smile in America’s Next Top Model ! I thought i was supposed to be all intense you know. But it got better and i think we managed some nice shots though i wouldnt say that was my favourite (Favourite pose = one leg crossed behind second leg like in all my ootd’s)




femina5Anyway, i always say a blog gets the kind of readers that it deserves and i must have done something right because i have the most amazing readers!!! No Seriously, i love how honest and open all you guys are, even when you may not agree with me and i love how loyal and supportive all of you are too. So THANK YOU for being amazing readers ~!Special shout out to Heena who actually emailed me some of the Femina pics, because i couldnt get my hands on the magazine! Also shoutout to Eva from Femina who was super approachable and gave me this opportunity!

Jan April 7, 2013 at 4:20 am

Congrats girl! YOU deserve it! You know what sets you apart ? Its not just the great writing , but how you are able to handle criticism in a fun and confident way. You publish them and get back to them too. I don’t think there are very many bloggers who can do that. Even if you question them slightly, they would take it so personally and wont even publish it, which to me; that sucks. Cos a reader who questions you is an intelligent reader and not just your average one. You dont want to lose them.

Well anyway , I think you are doing a fabulous job. Esp with wedding posts. You figured your niche. Well done.


mehak April 7, 2013 at 9:28 am

Aww thanks jan !! Yup iv alwyay had a ” post everything except abusive comments ” policy :) it keeps it interesting !

Preethi April 13, 2013 at 2:19 pm

Hearty congratulations Mehek.
I ve been a regular reader of your blog and it’s made me take some wise decisions regarding make up!
Being a dermatologist and cosmetologist, I find your ‘panel discussion’ very useful as each one of you have different skin types.
I love your style of writing, how you start your write up with a simple everyday situation and build it up into a product review!
Keep up the good work and wish you more success and accolades! You r an inspiration for me and I hope to start my own blog on skin and hair some day!!


Nidhi Pandey April 19, 2013 at 3:28 pm

Heartiest Congratulations Mehak! Checked ur blog after a really long time :) Feeling good!
