  • The hair tonic that changed my life

    Keeping up with the trends, I used to frequently dye my hair, which had resulted in the brittle and drab hair that you can find in my old #badhairday selfies on Instagram. Despite the tons of products that I had used to repair my hair, nothing seemed to reverse the damage that the dyes had caused.

  • People according to Earth-shapes

    I apologise for the muffled noise in the closet; I had to tie up every scientist in the world before embarking on this article. Anyway, let's pretend we've all lost our sense of logic and basic knowledge of EVERYTHING for a while, and talk about what your Earth-shape preference says about you.

  • Day in the life of an Instagram Influencer

    I roll out of bed and head straight to the washroom. The bags under my eyes have worsened and my hair is now home to four new species of birds. Hair and makeup takes me only 45 minutes these days, and then I'm back under my covers, ready to post the first selfie of the day. “Embrace your bare skin,” I caption it, and am bombarded with tags of people inspired by me to go makeup-free for the day. I'm doing something right.

  • What kind of drink are you?

    You are basic. Though you can blend in with everyone easily, not everyone has strong feelings for you. Some take you for granted unless they are almost dying. Some use your existence and are actually grateful to you; some just take advantage of you all the time and never express gratitude. Despite the negativity, you should focus more on the most positive side of things, that is, your cousins always follow your lead. You are literally the first one of your kind.

  • Urban Dictionary - Dhaka Edition

    Badbuzz (can also be substituted by pera): A feeling that demolishes all your happy vibes and kills all the “feel good” hormones in your body.
