20 Realistic Goals To Have In 2018!

Yeah so I’m gonna give you oodles of gyan on meditation and finding your passion and some such. Fat chance! If there’s one thing I learned in 2017, it’s the fact that I’m nowhere close to attaining nirvana. I struggled with trying to be that “Keep-Calm-And-Bullshit” person and somewhere in November (at the fag end of the year) realised that I’m human-er than most humans … Continue reading 20 Realistic Goals To Have In 2018!

Tripping: 5 Things I Loved In Porto, Portugal

My travel diaries: Everything on my travel here so I can relive it. That’s the plan! Picking up Porto to visit was really a random decision. Randomer than picking up an ice cream flavor on a dull day. We knew only two things about it – that Port wine was invented there and Claus Porto soaps are made there. I remember seeing Claus Porto soaps … Continue reading Tripping: 5 Things I Loved In Porto, Portugal

LookBooks To Love: Raw Mango’s Festive Sari Edit, Shamiana Collection 2017

Sophisticated but down-to-earth – two opposites that hurl themselves with extreme, all-consuming force into a giant ball of beauty. That’s Raw Mango for me. Subtle but drenched in power. And this time, right on time for the festive season, there’s a new collection by Raw Mango called Shamiana, just festive saris and it’s on fleek. My favourites here: Style Level: Powerhouse! Pictures via Raw Mango … Continue reading LookBooks To Love: Raw Mango’s Festive Sari Edit, Shamiana Collection 2017

The South-Indian Star Look From The 80s Is Coming Back Big Time: We’re Loving Brand Latha!

My earliest memories of fashion and style weren’t glossy magazines. Yep, they were big in my teens + college years and I once got severely reprimanded for owning a Cosmopolitan. But that’s a story for another day. My earliest memories of fashion were made up of South-Indian heroines. Nope, not the fancy Vyjayantimala and Hema Malini variety that glossies love to gloss about. I’m talking … Continue reading The South-Indian Star Look From The 80s Is Coming Back Big Time: We’re Loving Brand Latha!

Weekly Vibes: Life-changers This Week!

This one’s a killer way to tell you what I buy, why I buy, what makes them work, what makes me waste some good monies on things that don’t need their due and ones that makes me go waaaw (that’s the South-Indian wow!). Hello, am a serial buyer of hipster-and-otherwise things and I plead guilty to Instagram-ing them repeatedly to get your attention. Every week … Continue reading Weekly Vibes: Life-changers This Week!

Handcrafted: Quirksmith, The Label That Takes Silver On A Whimsical Flight!

I used to be crazy about silver. In college, it was all about that Fab India kurta and oodles of oxidised silver. Always dull, always antique-y and probably a bit cliched also. But we hardly had any options when we were growing up – not so much social media really and no Insta trends and FB pages to ogle at. So we chose a few … Continue reading Handcrafted: Quirksmith, The Label That Takes Silver On A Whimsical Flight!

The Only Playlist Your Little Girl Needs!

Music isn’t my strong suit. I mainly go for pop, a bit of metal (that happens because of prolonged exposure to it by husband) and lots of Hindi/Tamil/Telugu stuff thrown in liberally. I own no genre, am loyal to no artiste. Except for those who are rocking the charts at the moment. With the exception of Dave Grohl, Beyonce, A.R. Rahman and Red Hot Chilli … Continue reading The Only Playlist Your Little Girl Needs!

Jean Paul Gaultier And His Sari Obsession Became My Obsession!

I’m no fashion student. I wish I was though because when I was studying for entrance exams to get into college, it wasn’t even a career option. Now, after 10 years and more, I still want to do something about that. Because, curiosity and obsession with style, yougaiz. Anyways, with the limited knowledge I had, I went to work for Marie Claire for almost 5 … Continue reading Jean Paul Gaultier And His Sari Obsession Became My Obsession!

How Self-Care Is Changing My Life One Step At A Time!

Reason 1: I am a working woman with a 4-year old kiddo. I have no time. If I’m not working, I’m with kid. If I’m with kid, I’m desperately getting back to work to deal with unfinished business. Little windows of time go in managing a home – damn, Surf is over again and the clothes are piling up. How people before and around and … Continue reading How Self-Care Is Changing My Life One Step At A Time!

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