My love for jewellery must be pretty obvious by now to you guys. I just love playing around with different colours, materials, textures and designs when it comes to jewellery. It has so many creative ways of bringing a touch of personality to whatever you wear. Today I’m going to be styling and showing you some of my favourite pieces from two gorgeous collections by Caratlane jewellery – the Jaipur collection and the Butterfly Collection.
I think 2017, for me, will go down as the year I rediscovered my latent love for travel. While it’s just a start and I have a long way to go before I cover my favourite places in this gorgeous country, and see my passport peppered with stamps, it has begun! Goa is one of those places that I had on my bucket list, but never got to visit due to so many reasons – friends cancelling plans, lack of enough leave, and a lot more. This year, I finally got to experience this paradise, and I know I will definitely be going back!

How have you been doing, loves? The weather in Bangalore is beautiful right now, transitioning into this city’s version of fall. That means lovely, cloudy skies and pleasant curl-up-in-your-blanket weather that makes you think of all the good things – hot cocoa, a great book, and boots.
There’s something just so luxurious about natural beauty products. I always get drawn in by natural ingredients because I always love being closer to nature and if my body butters can do that, I’m down! Hemp seed is an ingredient that’s gradually been gaining popularity for its amazing properties. It’s rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and this makes it an excellent moisturizer for dry skin and hair. It also improves skin oxygenation and hydration and improves skin elasticity over time. I had a chance to discover a lot more about the whole process of creating natural beauty products from hemp seed oil, with a brand called Satliva. Read on to know all about my favourite products from them.
UPDATE: This just got even worse, if possible. I decided to investigate this agency and called them directly to verify this person’s claims. Turns out that the person who had contacted me has never even been heard of by them. So not only is this person preying on people and fooling them but also ruining the brand name of an actual legit agency.
I have always been fascinated by how fashion is a form of art, where models get to express so many moods, colours and textures to the camera or on the runway. I don’t believe in the rather outdated view that modeling is for ‘airheads’. It requires a lot of hard work to know how to approach a subject and to exude the confidence and aesthetic that’s suited to the brand.
There’s something just so ethereal and beautiful about cherry blossoms – the Japanese seem to agree, considering they have an annual Cherry Blossom viewing festival! The delicate pink blossoms are a wonderful sight to see in the middle of the concrete jungles that are our cities. Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese, and recently I had the chance to explore one of the most stunning collections of diamond jewellery crafted around this theme.
What’s the first thing people notice about you, and what do you love the most about yourself? For me, it’s always been my height, and my sense of style. I’ve always towered above everyone else from the time I was a kid, and while I have faced a lot of bullying and unwanted comments (I still get those!) for it, I love my height and couldn’t be prouder of it! As for my sense of style, my mom had a lot of influence on me, growing up. She’d always pick out the most one-of-a-kind stuff for me to wear, and it became part of who I am.
We’re already in the middle of September and the coming month brings with it lots of festive cheer including Oktoberfest! A time for great beer, delicious food and lots of happy times. The Irish House in Bangalore recently started its Oktoberfest celebrations, on till September 20 at their VR Bengaluru and Sarjapur outlets, with great offers on beer and a complete menu of German specialties. Read on to know what all we tried!
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated by glasses and eyewear frames. My whole family wore them, except me and though I didn’t want the issues associated with it, I’d always try on my parent’s or brother’s glasses to see and imagine how I’d look if I had them. Back in the 90s when I grew up, frames and lenses were pretty limited. But recently, with the emergence of geek chic and non-prescription eye glasses, my fascination is back. For those of you who do wear glasses though, I’ve put together a few of my favourite frames from Specsmakers and styled them for you! Take a look 🙂
When we were little girls, we’d sit starry-eyed on our mom or dad’s knee listening to them read out fairytales. Of lands far away, of kings, queens, princesses, evil witches, castles and dragons. Our imaginations soared, and we’d dream of someday finding our own story and crafting our own wondrous world.
