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.
If there’s one thing everyone looks forward to during the monsoon, it’s all the awesome sales! Who doesn’t love a great deal on something that’s been on your wishlist since forever, and coming home with lots of shopping bags to unpack?
As far as fusion food goes, there’s just so many restaurants, each trying to outdo the other in this sort of experimentation. But it often just ends up being a confusing mish-mash of flavours that end up not being as exciting as they sound. When I went to Food-E Koramangala, I had this at the back of my mind, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. Read on to know what I liked at this fun cafe!
Sometimes you just need a good pampering session to let go of all the stress from the week and just sit back, relax, and forget about everything else. Bodycraft is one of the city’s most well-loved salon chains, known for their amazing facials, hair services and spa services as well the most. I recently had the chance to see why at the launch of their Bomb Cosmetics Manicure and Pedicure services at their Indiranagar outlet. Read on to know more about my experience!
When it comes to Bali, like a first love, it crept into my life, and made its presence felt as I gradually fell head over heels for the place. In the first part of this travel series with When In City, I talked about our first forays into adventure and discovering Seminyak. This part focuses on the second half of our trip, that we spent in Ubud.
When I put together a look, it’s the fashion accessories that complete it and make it stand out. They add character and elegance to the entire outfit. But there’s one fashion accessory that also doubles up as one of the most useful and important things I carry, and that’s the smartphone. Whether I’m uploading the latest from the events I attend on my Instagram stories, or taking great pictures, it’s super essential that my smartphone looks as on trend as my outfits!
