Look Book Love:This Shoot Reminded Me Of The Beauty Of Heritage Bungalows! *Le Sigh

It’s Thursday. Probably the most boring day of the week. And what’s worse? It’s the day after Trumps win – that terrible aftertaste that the world is experiencing, like a bad hangover, like a feather from a pillow stuck in your throat. And I decided to move onto things that make me happy. And one such, is this pretty pretty shoot by a friend of mine, Kanika Karvinkop, ace stylist and all round sweet girl. It’s for the Nylon Singapore magazine, November issue and it’s so haunting and oozing with awesome. So I asked Kanika to give me the goop. The shoot had something beautiful – it was shot inside a heritage bungalow and that belonged to Mumbai designer James Ferriera. Now if you know Ferriera, you would know that his home is a reflection of his personality – Goan, Vintage, Relaxed and Nostalgic. Mi Casa – those two words fit right in like poetry. And with that as inspiration, this shoot showcases style that’s modern, edgy and sophisticated against a laid-back vibe. The trend was clearly …

Label To Love: The Cooling Glass Company Is Just The Thing To Carry To Burning Man!

I’ve known Pavitra online. Strictly online. Because there are very few blogs I follow relentlessly and her blog Masala Chai was a delight. Too bad it isn’t functional now and I missed her banter and discoveries. We met by chance online and kept at it – we’d often Skype, just talk and give each other virtual hi-fives. Then she got married, moved to the US and I was pretty sure she’ll make it big there. Some people have the drive, you see it in their soul. And one fine day, something cute popped up on my timeline. A neat pair of sunnies, totally approved by MIA. Certified for Burning Man. The name struck me as the most creative: The Cooling Glass Company. These glasses are hand-made and hand-crafted – and so unique. So since it’s a venture I truly love, I decided it’s time to give it all the attention I got this week. Presenting to you….The Cooling Glass Company on Etsy. Over to Pavitra.  A bit about you: I am a person who needs …

My Beauty Shop: What I Shopped For In Spain! (*Psst, some Spanish, some universal, many awesome)

I am a firm believer that when you travel, you need to pick up stuff that is… Local (That’s a given, I know. But I have been guilty of shopping high street stuff even while traveling…) Small enough to not have your husband panic and Something made with local ingredients / maybe a local label / just something exclusive to the country. That for me, means clearly, beauty products. So when I landed in Madrid, my eyes were peeled for anything great packaging, fancy-schmancy ingredients and just general airport duty-free stuff that I can splurge on. Here are a few observations I made and a few products I bought! P.S that’s me on the first day in Spain looking as gleeful as a bunny rabbit on fluffy bed!  Well, I saw a lot of French products at all cosmetic stores. Bioderma (That Sensibio H2O) – Vichy – Embroylisse – La Roche Posay, even Caudalie. I even saw a lot of Nuxe (that shimmer oil is so so tempting and the lip balm) and  hella lotta Avene. But …

Vintage Shoot, Indian Wear: Loving The Contrast!

Pretty backdrops? I’ve been lately all over them. The fact that I write for this super blog called Wed Me Good is one thing but also, I have started to appreciate the beauty of nature recently. Ferns, bougainvilleas, roses….really, maybe it’s the fact that I’m in my 30s and on my way to being domestic goddess ( am so gonna have a greenhouse soon) that is totally making me love this shoot by Shyamal & Bhumika. New lookbook, new outfits and a new backdrop to weddings. A big applause for the new-agey outfits – that peplum blouse with a ballerina skirt. Enjoy this lookbook, coz I’m making mental notes on how this wall will look at a party. Delish!

Rungg Shoes: Fit For Modern Day Nefertiti If You Ask Me!

Everyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for shoes. My theory: you can put on weight and your outfits might not fit you anymore but shoes my darlings, shoes fit you the same no matter how much you change in shape and size. Though honestly, I used to wear 5-inch heels 2-3 years back because it was habit you see. I was a short-ish person so it was part of me. I spent money on designer shoes, had 2-3 colours of the same shoe and wired my brain to run after a new heel every 3 months or so. But really, after the baby, you know one cannot wear heels and run. OMG with the baby, a baby bag and tired feet, it was an impossible thought. I desperately wanted to be that mom on Park Avenue running with heels, catching a cab, holding a baby in arm and winking away to us – the kind you see on book covers in pink. Yeah, not me at the moment. And so while …

What is Rock Salt?

COMING SOON…. Rock Salt. It’s about the usual and the unusual. About the unique and the luxurious. Effortless X Indian Ideas. New shapes + Interesting silhouettes. Minus the ornate, the common, the unspecial. It is sometimes about living a hand-made, hand-crafted life. One that is made with a lot of self-awareness and gratitude. It is about discovering new-age fashion and natural beauty ideas. It’s most definitely for the free-spirited but those that come with a purpose to be more, to do more, to try more. It’s a place where Indian crafts play around with modern ideas. It is about things that are pure and honest – and adding an Indian identity to the global fashion narrative. Impeccable craftsmanship. Intricate detailing. But wearable – try-able. It is about sustainable growth too. It is about taking that raw, rural craftsmanship and making it work in an urban and modern setting. It is about indigenous textiles and techniques and the real reason behind why we love them. It is also about baby steps that a few discerning brands …
