My August Favourites

Hey my dear readers. How are you guys doing?

I’m back with my list of Monthly Favourites! Actually, I got a great response on my last monthly favourites post and that motivated me to keep this going. For those who’re new on my blog, this is one last post of the month where I pen down a few things that grabbed my attention or gave me enormous joy during that month.

Honestly speaking, this month has kept me busy with my early morning online lectures, researching and planning my blog posts, and much more. Yet I found time to do things that give me happiness, and all of that combined to make it a super amazing month. So, here’s my list of August favourites.

Watching the Horror Fiction Ruins

I watched this movie Ruins a few days back on Netflix and it really blew my mind. Directed by Carter Smith, it’s a story of four young American friends who set on a trip to Mexico. The holiday that seems fun in the beginning takes a twist. The gang embarks on a journey to a ruined archaeological dig in the middle of a jungle along with a fellow tourist where they get trapped as it is haunted by evil creepers that reside in the ruins. The question is – Will they survive or no? Watch it to find it, as I wouldn’t spoil your mystery. The best thing I loved about it was the story-line and direction. Much recommended for everyone.

Venturing on a Quarantine Trip

With the pandemic situation putting a stop to travel, it had been almost five months since the ‘large Indian family’ had stepped out of the city! But with the relaxing of rules in the unlocking phase, a little outing wasn’t a bad idea, right?  Yes, we went on a short fam trip (even in these quarantine times!!). Of course, with proper sanitisation measures and complete precautions in place.

In the wee hours of August 15, the family left for a road trip to Lonavala, a nearby hill station. It was one of the best and most scenic road trips I’ve had in recent times – with heavy downpour and the gushing waterfalls on the hills. We put up in a two-storeyed villa – Villa Montana Vue.

Although we spent the whole weekend indoors as lot of scenic attractions were shut down due to covid. But overall, it was amazing and unforgettable trip. The best memory of the trip was playing UNO game with my cousins (I also won once, haha!!

Having a good Haircare Plan in place

My mom being the editor of a popular HAIR magazine, she keeps advocating some care tips for my hair and skin. Recently, she handed me this cute box of Multi-Vitamin Power Gummies insisting that I should try these for my hair fall issues. These are hair vitamins with the goodness of biotin, zinc and folic acid and are good for hair health. I’ve started having it twice a day as recommended. And I must say these chewable hair gummies are not just yummy to taste but slowly improving my hair condition. So I’m loving it. (PS: Do consult your hair expert if you plan to try it too!)

So these were my favourites. Do let me know what were your favourites of this month and comment them down.

Thank you for reading Chasing the Maximum Life!

It’s really great that you were able to go on a family vacation, even though you had to stay indoors, it’s still valuable time and precious memories! 😊 The hair gummies seem super interesting! I tried one for glowy skin and energy last month and loved them so much!!

  2. Thank you for your post. I’m glad you were able to take a family trip. I had such a great time with my family this past weekend celebrating my birthday. We stayed at a resort in Orlando and didn’t do much. Since it was with my family, it was like a trip to the stars. Take care.

  3. It’s nice to see you get out and be with the whole family! It’s refreshing to be able to do that!

    Gummy hair supplements work for real? Wow that’s something I should take note of. I always doubt the claims about it but knowing someone who uses it and testify to its effect, why not right?!

    My August favorite? I discovered a really good puffy Japanese cheesecake and was able to order once. The next order though, the baker refused as she’s on maternity leave 😅😅😅
