Hey there,

Happy Dhanteras you all !! For all who do not know about today, it’s the first day of the Diwali festival. The goddess of wealth, Lakshmi is worshiped today and it’s an auspicious day to buy jewelry. πŸ˜€

Legend

The story behind this day is of a 16 year old son of King Hima. The son’s horoscope predicted his death by a snake bite on the fourth day of his wedding. When the day came, his wife laid out all her ornaments and coins at the entrance. When Yama- the god of death came, he got blinded by it and thus her husband was saved. πŸ™‚

Apart from following the traditions, we Indians love our jewels and love to invest in them, be it gold, silver or precious stones. So I thought it is the perfect day to introduce one of the amazing jewelry brands of Bangalore- Shashii Jewels.

About Shashii Jewels

Located in the heart of Bangalore, 80ft road- Indiranagar, Shashi jewels specializes in wedding and bridal jewelry. Their jewelry is available in Kundan, Polki, Jadau, Meenakari & American Diamond (Zircon) in silver with 23k gold plating. And that’s not all, they even customize them as per your requirement. πŸ™‚

The pieces I am wearing are in polki made with silver & laakh with 23k gold plating. To give complete authenticity and to honor the traditional art of making polki jewelry, the reverse side of each piece has intricate Meena-work done on it. And all these pieces are hand-crafted. I absolutely love how they compliment the outfit I am wearing and because these are made in silver, they do not break a bank.

That’s about it, I will now let the pictures speak for them selves. πŸ™‚ P.s. – Do not forget to notice the peacock. πŸ˜›

Hello there,

After receiving few questions on my Facebook and Instagram about my hair, I decided to write a review of the products I am using currently. πŸ™‚ Someone who was very negligent with her hair when compared to skin, It was high time to incorporate some TLC for hair. πŸ˜› So, here I am with star products from Tony&Guy which are nothing but perfect dose of nourishment for dry,damaged and frizzy hair.

About my hair:

Naturally wavy, slightly dry and extremely prone to frizz.Β Due to which, I either have a fabulous or a bad hair day, nothing in between. When in contact with humidity, my hair looks exactly like Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. when she went to Barbados. πŸ˜€

Comes in 30ml transparent glass bottle which is quite sturdy and has a pump dispenser. Retails at Rs.650/- but, you can get it at discounted prices online. The serum is thick and transparent with an amazing mild fragrance.

I use 3-4 pumps of serum, rub it on my palms and apply it on damp hair. If you have longer hair than mine, you will need more product.

Hello there, how is your October going ?? Busy with Diwali shopping or planning a holiday ? I have been doing both of them, a little , haha πŸ˜› . While going through my wardrobe, I realized that, my Indian outfits are less than 10% in total . So, I decided to turn my F21 ivory dress into some what festive ready. πŸ™‚ And I must say, I loved the process as well and the end result! That means, you know what I will be wearing to the Diwali party this year … πŸ˜€

The best part of our Indian wear is, the Jewelry !! The Jumkas, rani haar , kundan maang tika , nath , bangles, anklets , to name a few. They can totally change the way the outfit looks and they feel so so royal. So when I decided to go Indo-Western for this look, adding the touch of those trinkets was a no brainer. As the color of the dress was very pristine ivory, I decided to stick to a color family which gives the same feeling of calmness. Wore the pretty sorbet blue necklace which my Mum gifted me and pastel pink earrings which my sister got for me. πŸ˜€ Perks of having family members who have great taste when it comes to fashion. πŸ˜‰ No festive look is complete without the touch of gold so, wore a watch, bangles, heels and a pretty clutch in gold tone.

That’s it, I hope you guys like my kind of light festive outfit. Let me know if you want to see more looks like this, or how about some heavy lehenga look ? Do let me know in the comments below. πŸ™‚

Women have a never ending love & passion for ethnic outfits. Different types of ethnic outfits give different looks and confidence to the bella and accessories make it all the more interesting. Jewellery is another thing which spruces up her overall look at an instant. A vast assortment of online kurtis feed the best to the fashion crave of every fashion enthusiast.

But what if you don’t want to put on so many things? Or don’t have time or space? I have a perfect solution for all your dilemmas regarding kurtis.

The best thing about kurti is, it saves a lot of our time whenever we are in a hurry. Here I have mentioned some easy tips on kurtis to get an instant Indo-western look.

  • Over-Layering Is Cool

    image-2

If your kurti is plain and you are bored of the same matching jewellery, ditch them and go for extended layering. Put on any contrasted shirt or jacket (as shown) or shrug and end up with a messy bun or curls. And you are done.

Wear traditional mojaris or fabricated heels with this ethnic wear for women.

  • Shirt Tied At Back

image-3

Remember those school times when we used to tie our sweaters on our waist? Such an easy fashion fad look!

Adorn the same with any of your mid-length online designer kurti and tie a knot of your denim shirt at the waist. You can try tribal accessories and necklace with this ethnic attire and finish off with Punjabi jutti or boat shoes.

  • Tie Your Kurti At The Corners

image-4

This one can be done if your kurti has long side slits and is a mid length kurti. Select flowy fabric so that the extra part of the designer kurti can fall down easily. Then tie a knot at the corners of the kurtis to show off your quirky fashion sense.

  • Stole Or Dupatta At Glance

image-5

Every woman definitely does this thousand times and never thinks of it much. This time, do it sincerely.

Wear it like a turban, regular draping, necklace with several knots or anything extra you wish to try. Select some bright colors to flaunt in!

  • Add a Contrasting Belt

image-6

There is a range of online designer kurtis at IndiaRush.com and you really don’t have to think twice before buying them. Select any bright colored kurti or a shirt style kurti and adorn it by adding a broad or delicate belt around your waist. If you want a Boho-look then, you can also wear a fabric belt around the waist. Finish off your confident looks by slipping into loafers.

 

P.S.- The content and the images are provided by a brand for collaboration, I do not own the same.

Love,

While I prefer to keep my personal life ‘private’, once in a while, it’s good to break that rule. πŸ™‚ Today is that day and I am going to share a personal story, So read on….

Many of you know that I am married but, not all of you know that it’s been 4 and a half years now. And this story is of one of our anniversaries. πŸ™‚

In most couple it usually happens that the boy forgets the dates. But, the situation between the two of us is slightly different. As in, he is the one who remembers all the important dates. He even reminds me my friends’ birthdays. Yes, I love that quality in him. πŸ˜›

So, on one anniversary we were traveling to the Andamans. Tickets booked, hotels booked and we were set for our week long dose of sun, sea and salt! We reached, checked in to our hotel and were off to explore the islands. The first surprise I got was that he had enrolled us into a scuba diving course. πŸ˜€ Some people love luxury trips, some backpacking, for us it’s the adventure that gets us going.

I cannot forget the feeling of the first day when we jumped into the ocean, wearing wet suits and oxygen tanks. Heart beats faster, breaths get longer and deeper and I felt like I was jumping into infinity. It was quite scary and thrilling at the same time..!! But when you are underwater, there is certain kind of silence and calmness you feel. The world you see there is a different kind of experience altogether!

The last day of the course happened to be on our anniversary, which made it even more special. We spent the whole day underwater and after that dive and an exam later, we were certified open water divers. πŸ™‚ We decided to celebrate it with a few cocktails and I went to the room to get dressed for the evening. When I entered, I saw a gift box on the table, with some flowers and a card saying ‘Happy Anniversary Sweetheart’. As I opened the box, there were a pair of beautiful diamond earrings which Rohith had got for me. We had a candlelight dinner at the beach and it was the perfect end to the perfect day…
