Turmeric, the bright orange herb that is best known for adding brightness to Indian curries, offers a plethora of health-enhancing benefits making it a prized culinary addition across India, China and the Far East for centuries. 

Perhaps you already have an ample stock of turmeric powder in your kitchen ammunition but like all things powdered, a fresh stalk of turmeric far outshines the nutritional benefits. Here’s 3 reasons why:

Isn’t online shopping an absolute Godsend? I for one am a total online shopping addict. Given my crazy busy schedule of working full-time, juggling home, mummyhood and a blog to boot, my trips to the malls in my off-times have become very limited. And don’t even get me started on weekend parking woes!

Given I am a beauty junkie (which lead me to beauty blogging in the first place), one of my favorite online stores is BasharaCare.com

Bashara Care boasts of one of the widest range of skincare, hair care and makeup needs in the Middle East, and they do same day delivery to beauty junkies like me living across UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain. Yes you heard that right… same day delivery! These guys have absolutely amazing customer service!

Before I get too carried away about this online gold mine for beauty needs, let me tell you about my latest Bashara Care delivery; the Urban Veda Purifying Day Cream.

I am a huge fan of natural beauty, and am always on the lookout for beauty products made of natural, ethically sourced ingredients. I was therefore very excited when I got contacted by Khadi.

Named after the iconic spun cotton that gained patriotic status with Gandhi’s ‘Khaadi Movement’ way back in 1918, the Khadi beauty brand has been around since 1963 and has only recently become available in the UAE through their online store.

I was sent a lovely assortment of Khadi goodies, and have been incorporating these into my regular beauty regime.

I spent a very blissful Saturday afternoon at the spa at The Oberoi.
