Party Ready Looks With Triumph Magic Wire

Party Ready With Triumph Magic Wire

Getting ready to welcome in the New Year 2016? I’m pretty sure that you have finalised on your party ensembles, got your make up and hair done with heels polished to perfection. While most of us are focusing on these look-list essentials, we often ignore the very fact that the right inner wear too plays a major role in shaping up the ensemble. The wrong fit of your lingerie can make your posture look dull and non-appealing. And with an occasion like New Year’s Eve, it becomes more important to get things right; inside out! Well, this post is a last minute scribble for you all to figure out what type of lingerie will work best with your ensemble. And to set the examples right, I present to you my 5 amalgamations of New Year Party looks, in case you are still wondering what to wear for the perfect eve. Before I share my list of New Year Eve party looks, let me share a personal opinion on lingerie. For me, lingerie is all about wearing inner wear that is comfortable, soft and flexible. The last thing that a girl wants, as she steps out to party, is worrying about her lady parts to feel saggy and unfit. And if one plans on showing her grooves on the dance floor, the right fit and support of lingerie is essential. Triumph is one lingerie brand that doesn’t need any kind of introduction. Having been a hit in Asia and many parts of the Uk, the brand is famous for its high quality lingerie that pleases every requirement and size. Recently, they have announced their ‘Magic Wire Bra’ range as one of their finest and most successful range, so far. While many women avoid wearing a wired bra, it actually is a …

Well, I’m pretty sure your attention has been caught by the title of this article. Who doesn’t like receiving gifts, right? And if the gift happens to be from an abode of beauty + fragrance, like The Body Shop, things just can’t get any merrier than that! But before you all scroll down to participate in the giveaway, their are two major things that I’d like to share with y’all. The Body Shop Holiday Gift Boxes Like each year, The Body Shop, always gives us a reason to indulge in some pampering therapy during the holiday season. This time too, they have come up with pretty packaging and various gifting options to suit every pocket. For those who are looking at gifting an entire range of bath and body products to their loved ones, The Body Shop has introduced Deluxe Gifting Sets. And for those who are planning on gifting everyone something, they have come up with Mini Gifting Sets that are pocket friendly and offer variants in travel friendly sizes. I happen to have received their Frosted Cranberry Mini Gift Set, which is from their limited edition range. Each mini set consists of 1 Cranberry Body Butter, 1 Cranberry Body Wash and a Cranberry Lily (Loofah). The gift set came just in time when I was leaving for a destination wedding and so I ended up taking this travel friendly pack along. The Cranberry Body Butter smells divine and will definitely be a hit for those who like fruity fragrances. The consistency of the body butter is creamy, which makes it apt to use during the winter season. Although not dense like Vanilla or Shea, Cranberry Body Butter is ideal for usage in warm to cool climatic conditions. My usage: I usually apply it after a bath in the morning and …

Quirky Menu of Flluid, Mosaic Hotels

December 22, 2015
Mosaic Hotels_Kalapalette15

Everytime we plan on dining out, the most prominent perspective that comes to our mind is – sitting in a cosy environment and getting served some hot delicacies right on our table. While hanging out with friends is an easy peasy thing, it is always a deed judging on a dine-in place which is family friendly. And we are least expectant of the fact that our eat-out experience can be engaging and challenging (in a fun way) as well. This is what I expected when I was invited over at Mosaic Hotels, Noida; to try out their new menu. Just like any other restaurant experience, I too was under an impression that my platter will be all about tandoori munchies and dollops of curry-naan combos. Knowing the area like Noida, I was pretty sure about the desi style of a restaurant, although Sector 18 – Noida is now getting experimental and more artistic as well, but Mosaic Hotels is a prominent name in this part of Delhi-NCR; so I was expecting the Indianised menu only. As I entered the corridors of Mosaic Hotel, a staff member humbly invited me over to the Flluid Restaurant, which has been constructed with very pleasing contemporary decor; comfortable seating space and overlooking a beautifully designed swimming pool. I was quite surprised to find such a relaxing ambiance, given the fact that it is constructed amidst the hustle bustle of Sector – 18 Noida market and right opposite the Metro Station. Nevertheless, a bigger surprise awaited me. When I greeted my fellow bloggers and sat on my sofa, anticipating over the menu; I was offered a flask (which is only associated with hard drinks) along with some ‘amuse-bouche’. And this was when I realised that the presentation was going to be quite engaging throughout our …

Flipkart – Way To 4G Smartphones

December 20, 2015
Flipkart 4G Smartphones_Kalapalette

Seeing how I struggled with my outdated 3G canvas phone, my younger sister convinced me to get a new one promising a smoother and faster experience. The younger generation is definitely more inclined and quick to catch up with the newest technology faster than us. But I am also ever keen to keep up. It was time to start my big search right away. I spent an entire evening reading reviews of phones and comparing them on different portals. It is amazing to see the pace at which technologies are advancing. What is released today becomes passé by the next month. Of all the new advancements, I gathered that 4G connectivity is the true hero of all the claims made by mobile makers! Being a social buzz-maker who is always on her toes, I felt a magnetic pull towards claims like ‘super fast streaming, uploading, and downloading’ among others! I am not able to get Wifi everywhere especially with a consistent speed and access. Thus I have no other option but to rely on my mobile phone’s internet connectivity when I am venturing al fresco. I wondered what this high-speed hullabaloo was all about. I had been using 3G for some time, and I was pretty satisfied with it as it was way better than 2G! To think of something beating the 3G speed was what got me interested in it I logged into Flipkart where choosing the best phone from thousands, gets easier and less time consuming with Filters. I refined my search with filters like price range, brand, SIM type, clock speed, primary and secondary camera and of course, connectivity. I was amused to see 4G phones starting from ₹2600 and going well beyond the ₹30,000 mark. Flipkart has got something for every pocket of India. Even if you do …
