The Body Shop Christmas_Kalapalette1

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 …

Review : Aztec *Kazo* Print

April 28, 2013
goodie-bag-1.jpg

Aztec print is one trend which switches every alternate season. This year too saw lots of Aztec prints on Indian and international runways. While the Indian ramp saw Malini Ramani showcasing Aztec-print shift dresses and  Surily working up the Neon-Aztec fever to perfection, the international ramps saw Mary Katrantzou doing an impressive Stamp-Aztec tribute to the postal stamps and Balmain rocking the studs, tassels and fringes. I was overwhelmed seeing hints of Aztec in the SS’13 collection of Kazo this time. Not overpowering, but muted basic prints in solid color schemes, and in a variety of garments and accessories. Apart from the solid color blocked trendy collection they have to showcase, one can feel a serious gush of pastel and bright color shades celebrating Aztec in forms of jumpers, tunics, prom dresses (no I ain’t kidding) and shift dresses. A serious note on black & whites can also be seen in the collection. The bold prints do not overshadow the feminine silhouettes of the collection, keeping it sleek yet sophisticated. Apart from apparels, one can find some edgy, pastel and bling accessories to team up against solid fabrics. My personal favorite has to be the Aztec-ear-danglers. Create fusions of aztec with solid shades, or swear by this trend and go print-on-print. Secure a neon belt on top of a black&white cocktail dress and dazzle up some pastel accessories to balance the overall shade card. Other Trends seen in the Collection Inspired by the natural substances and the purest love that comes with it, the SS’13 collection of KAZO is infused with freshness of pastel colors highlighting one of their key trends- ‘Nature & Romance’. Embellishment derived from nature like wooden beads and buttons, floral prints and kimono inspired patterns can be seen as a part of the collection. One can indulge in breathable fabrics of …

Beauty : Sexy Back – A No Show!

January 27, 2013
blue_night.jpg

‘I wish I had opted for my hair removal!’ ( by Gillette Satin Care way!) What is the biggest turn off? When you invest months of devoted time for that perfect one day, and everything just falls apart? Well I had such a moment which not only ruined a memorable day for me, but opened my eyes to avoid such disasters in future. WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED? It was my best friends wedding, the one with whom I had shared kindergarten, schooling and tuitions. We had done a lot of day dreaming during school life, giggling and excited to grow up to live up that moment! Being the bridesmaid I got myself a semi backless lehenga made. Did religious rounds of all the shopping hubs of Delhi to perfect the look in every possible manner. And the D Day arrived. Excited as I can get, could not wait to flaunt that “sexy back”, not to forget I sweated hard in Aerobics classes to get that perfect back! THE DISASTER REASON : I was all set when the biggest mistake of my life happened following this conversation I had with a mutual friend : Friend : So, you wearing a semi-backless lehenga to her wedding? Me : Yeah! *Doing a joyful dance in my head* Friend : Hope you have done the necessary to get that sexy back right! Me : Wdya mean? (puzzled me) Friend : Well you know, get a wax done to remove any hair followed by moisturizing massage. Me : OMG! I quickly called up my local boutique and got the appointment for a back waxing treatment. THE DISASTER! The painful procedure of removing hair by waxing was surely troublesome, but ANYTHING for that perfect look! In my quick decision consciousness I forgot that there is something called “patch test” before …
