Clearing up my acne

by Khushboo on February 6, 2017

Hey guys!  A while ago I posted about my experience with applying coconut oil on my face and thought I’d do a follow up post.  Unfortunately things didn’t really get better.  If anything, it seemed to trigger a series of breakouts on my face which went on to last about 4-5 months.

Back in Bombay

by Khushboo on May 4, 2015

Hey guys!  I’m back in Bombay and back to reality…at least for now!  April was a rather epic month for me- as I blogged about, I spent a couple of weeks in Guangzhou & then made a pit stop back to Mumbai before flying to Dubai for a very special friend Nikita’s wedding.  She is someone I’ve […]

Peanut Stir Fry

by Khushboo on October 9, 2014

I had an interesting conversation with a new client a few weeks ago.  As I do in all initial consultations, I asked about her dieting history, both in terms of what helped her lose weight & what hindrances she might have faced in the past.  Prior attempts to weight loss included:  Eliminating carbs from her […]
