While winter is a lovely time to bask in the sun, it was even lovelier to warm up to the latest OBEETEE luxury carpets Collection specially crafted by ace designers Abraham & Thakore at The Lodhi in Delhi. The ‘Proud to be Indian’ collection is specially handcrafted for the discerning customer who loves modern sensibilities and timeless Indian artistry.
After the craziness of the week, when the last thing you need to hear is the sound of another email hitting your inbox, when you want work as far away from your mind as possible, the prospect of relaxing is amazing. When you’re done with Friday’s shenanigans and are looking forward to the rest of the weekend, the best way to celebrate is with brunch. A huge spread, catered to every possible taste, with a fun live gig in the background, and wine or champagne with your friends or partner for company – complete bliss. I recently attended the Retro brunch at High Ultra Lounge and apart from having a fabulous brunch, learned about wine pairings from the team at Grover Wines.
I’ve always maintained that art is something one must get acquainted with at some point in one’s life. Art has many forms – whether it’s related to performing arts, design, paintings, or music. Art is the most elevated form of expression, in my opinion, and any celebration of it is definitely to be welcomed. I had earlier written about Art Bengaluru and what to look forward to in this contemporary art extravaganza. I was one of the privileged few to attend the opening night of Art Bengaluru which included many stunning art installations and a musical night. Read on to know more about it.
When you crave a giant cheesy burger with a mountain-load of fries on the side, or a chocolate brownie or whatever you love, there’s often no stopping you once you’re convinced. You might feel like wolfing one down but sometimes, it’s good to stop and think about all that cholesterol that this might cause in the long run. It’s not about you getting old but just about eating smart. Recently, I had the chance to discover how to indulge in easy and healthy snacking with Real Good Yummiez and Chef Michael Swamy at the lovely Cafe Mangii in a High Tea event at Orion Mall. Read on to know the 3 ways he taught us to create healthy snacks.
E-commerce websites have more or less taken over our lives now in terms of changing how we shop. It’s a lot easier for most of us to shop at just a click, especially with all the endless deals seen online, and the promise of fast delivery. I personally always prefer shopping online, mainly because it lets me multitask and save time, but when it comes to denim I can’t compromise. That’s the only time you’ll see me actually visit a store.
The end of May marks the start of summer, and the news that Forever21 was opening two shiny new, huge stores in Bangalore was the best news ever! I’ve always loved the styles that the brand offers – it’s a mix of contemporary, fresh and young fashion with so much fun that you can add to your closet. Read on to know where they’ve opened two NEW stores in Bangalore, with Forever21 Men finally making its debut here too!

Remember the invite to the exclusive launch event for Agashe I mentioned last week? The exclusive luxury pret-wear multi-designer store for women, Agashe, was launched on 30 March 2016 at their premises on MG Road, Ghitorni. The launch was scheduled in the afternoon at three, just the time when the spring sun is turning mild, and there is a hint of coolness in the breeze.

The preview of a jewellery exhibition by Dipali Bhasin, founder of ‘My Best Friend and Me” , was held at Zerzura – the middle Eastern and Mediterranean lounge at the Qutab Hotel – on 23 March 2016. Dipali and Anubhav Bhasin hosted the evening ahead of their much sought after bi-annual exhibition.
It’s that time of the year, when cricket’s on everyone’s minds, when winning one of the international T20 matches is like life and death for a billion Indians, when every cafe and restaurant has people looking, eyes glued and glazed over, at the TV screen and when no other sport seems to exist. The ICC World T20 series has had some nail-biting matches, but little did I know that I’d get to literally watch and experience one of them!
