Eight shades ranging from vibrant coral to shimmery black.  I personally was quite surprised by their Beach Theme, trying to connect the theme with these holidays. Well, the answer was quite satisfactory though! Because this time of the year witnesses the maximum exotic vacations it is quite evident that they mean coastal regions too. Hence, the theme.

As the winters set in, the shades of pop are gradually changing to a warmer tone too. Celebrating this change in season, Lavie recently launched it’s AW’13 collection of bags and footwear. Promising edgy designs, the range can be used from a professional look to a party look. Ample choices of color makes shopping worthwhile. We, the Delhi bloggers were invited over to be a part of the celebrations too.  Take a look at the meet and greet. A candid shot, indeed! What I really liked about the whole collection was the variety of colors and styles they had to offer. But I was heart broken (as usual), as they too have a footwear size range of 35-41. So, I couldn’t even try my luck with shoes. Sigh. On a serious note, if you are looking for bags which are stylish, yet long lasting and classy, do give Lavie a try. Their price range too is quite impressive. Venue : 2nd floor, Bagzone, Select Citywalk, Saket (Delhi)

Last weekend, I was invited to *discover* something with Opera. The idea was to bring all the food lovers (bloggers) together, under the bamboo loaded roof of this newly opened restaurant called Ahoy!Asia, and let our taste buds explore the various flavors that our continent has to offer. The initiative was a joint genius of Opera India and Ahoy!Asia. GUESS WHAT & WHERE? The event started off with some delicacies presented in front of us. We were asked to guess the ingredients of the 1st dish, and the cuisines to which the latter belonged to. The dishes consisted of Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Malaysian cuisine. I apologies for my negligence, as I was so busy relishing the delicacies that I forgot to save down the names of these. #DiscoverWithOpera The fun was taken to a more interesting level with an amazing oriental lunch menu presented in front of us, with a little tete-e-tete with Opera geniuses. Press Release : Along the “discover” theme, Opera Software organized a #DiscoverWithOpera food bloggers meet-up, inviting some of the Delhi’s top food bloggers at Ahoy!Asia, one of the Delhi’s brand-new Oriental restaurants.
