Wedding & Lifestyle Exhibition : Jhalak

"Jhalak" : A Hindi word which means 'glimpse', and a glimpse into lifestyle and societal trends is what I get at these expos. This one was held in the plush banquet of hotel Holiday Inn, Jaipur. With the festive season coming up, it was the perfect place to shop for ethnic outfits, jewellery, accessories, shoes…

Wedding & Lifestyle Exhibition : Urge

Another expo in the pink city, but with a very elaborate and eclectic decor. Shopping is such a great experience amidst such vibrant spaces and with so many unique things to choose from. It was an amalgamation of apparel ranging from gotta patti to block prints, embellished footwear and quirky juttis, handbags and ornamented clutches,…

Decor : Gulmohar Lane 1

It was while doing our Homes of the stars post that i came to know about Gulmohar Lane, a bespoke furniture label based in Jaipur. They have designed a lot of stuff for Parineeti Chopra's home in Mumbai, which came as a big surprise as most star homes and their objects are completely opposite of anything unostentatious. So…

Wedding & Lifestyle Exhibition : Lagan Mandap 2nd Edition

It is very gratifying to cover the new edition of an expo, which you have covered before. It's like a journey that you have completed as an experience collector and nothing can be more rewarding. As the name suggests, Lagan Mandap is all about the glitz and glamour of wedding shopping. Here's the link to…

Brand Review : Woodgeekstore

Wood + Geek - the combination appears to be quite an eccentric one. They are geeks with a passion for all things wooden and are trying to break the conventional image of wood by exploring it beyond its traditional uses. There is the usual walnut, bamboo, mahogany, rosewood, teak etc, but used in a plethora…

Beauty Review : L’Oréal’s Infallible Gel Nail Paint

I was drawn to the chic packaging of L'Oréal's new infallible gel nail paints. These nail paints are comprised of two liquids - a colour base coat to resist dulling and a gel based top coat to magnify colour and shine. They are intended to provide a salon like finish to nails and a 14…

OOTD With Global Desi

Global Desi - The name aptly represents the contemporary Indian woman, whose style is a unique amalgamation of tradition and ultramodern. The brand offers an eclectic mix of Kurtis, dresses, palazzos, skirts, tunics etc which are made by combining the Indian techniques of block printing, dying, embroidery with some chic silhouettes. They work closely with traditional…

Beauty Review : Revlon’s Scented Nail Enamel 

When it comes to fragrances, I prefer subtle ones which keep you fresh and at the same time prevent the person sitting next from getting a headache 😂. That's the primary reason I mostly choose mists over perfumes for everyday use, fragrance that feels as if it is organically emanating from the body gives a…

Jaypore’s Open House : 1

Jaypore is one of my favourite shopping websites, I love the way they build a story across each collection and when you purchase something from the brand, it truly feels like buying a piece of heritage which carries its history along. Jaypore focuses on products with unique,high quality craftsmanship; unmistakably local designs that feel at home anywhere…

Delhi Haat : 2

In our previous blogpost, we took you through a plethora of striking charms present at the Delhi Haat, now is the time to brief you about our shopping haul, we behaved like harridans, haggling about prices with the shopkeepers to drive a hard bargain 😂😂. It was better than shopping at an air conditioned mall,…

Delhi Haat : 1

I couldn't post anything in a while owing to husband dearie's exams in Delhi and the internet connectivity was poor due to jammers installed in the cantonment. Nevertheless, Delhi gave me the opportunity to meet both my best friends after a long time and we decided to relive the fun times of college. I wanted…

The Brocade Story

In our previous Blogpost about Idli, we took you into the exotic world of Thierry Journo and the way everything is handcrafted in the boutique. As promised, this post is especially dedicated to the amazing work he has been doing with brocade, a fabric that is mostly associated with traditional silhouettes. We were completely in…

Accessories : A Bohemian Trend

Dupattas/stoles/scarves have been a quintessential part of our dressing, they add the much needed elegance or quirkiness to the look. At times it is the rich dupattas in Tussar/Chanderi or the trendy stoles in pastel prints. Pairing jewellery with dupattas/scarves gets complicated as both are attention grabbing accessories and both are to be worn around…
