Valentines Day Treats To Himself

February 11, 2016
GzmZr

Articles getting churned out this week gotta be all about love. And by love I mean the mushy mushy couple love, because it is the time of the Valentine! But my agenda is slightly different from the general norm. I am celebrating, and giving reasons to celebrate, this week of love with not a partner; but yourself! Having already covered ‘Valentines Day Treats To Herself‘ in my previous feature, this one is dedicated to all the handsome dudes who have befriended solitude as their current hotness. Feel loved, lover boy! 1. Hit The Road Prolly something that every guy dreams of doing 24/7, is taking their automobile out for a drive. Either hit the highway to your nearest destination, or simply map out the country side for some sightseeing. Take it up with your group of friends, or go solo with your music list in check. Breathe in some fresh air and remember, YOU LIVE ONLY ONCE! 2. Attend A City Gig And do some ‘air head bangin’ moves while you’re at it. For the love of music and some alcohol on the side, google up the hot n’ happenin gigs this week in your city and book yourself an exclusive reservation. While committed men will be sipping soup over a romantic candlelit dinner, you’ll be letting yourself lose over some soul music and a bowl of cheese dripping nachos. 3. Get a Tattoo! Not the ones wherein your express the depressing solitude, or speaks about the memoirs of your ex’s history; but the ones that define your personality. Get inspired from Adam Levine or go David Beckham all the way, but get an ink to celebrate life! Note: You can try one of those temporary designs in case a tattoo still seems doubtful to you. This way you will realise if you …

As e-commerce is expanding at an unprecedented rate in India, all of us who are hooked to internet shopping are being gratified like never before. There are more websites, more variety and more fun! But I have to admit that this can also lead to a lot of confusion and mess when I have to hop from one site to another say in search of my dream dress. I tend to spend more time looking into the stock available on one shopping portal and then I venture into another.  The same drill continues until I get hold of something that not only satiates my style-sense but also fits me well! Yes, it eats up a helluva precious time. To this great problem I have finally got a great solution! It is a place where I can get the best of trends from all other leading shopping portals without setting a foot in each of their search engines separately.  Stylebuys.com hunts and gathers products from trusted ‘shops’ like Koovs, Myntra, Jabong, Faballey, Indiatimes, Snapdeal, Zivame, Flipkart et al, and serves it on a single plate to much of our convenience.

Noir Mode Sleek – Benetton Style

December 22, 2014

What are you planning to wear for the New Year’s eve party? The same old LBD or that shimmer sequence pallazo-crop top number? It all seems fair but only if we are talking about the parties down southern India and the likes. Because Delhi winters are in no mood of gifting us any relief from the chills.  As the NY15 is right round the corner, it will be a task to mix-match prints, colors and silhouettes on such a short notice. Your safest bet? Dig in the old ways! A.k.a. monochrome style. Nope, not talking about the LDB. Let’s stretch it up till the ankles and call dibs on a matchy white crop jacket, shall we? One of the most comfy yet classy outfits that I wore during the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Summer Spring 2015 (and planning to wear for the New Year’s too) was a solid combination of black & white. Take a look!  Earrings – Zotiqq How I wore it for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week?

Iraya – A 100% Natural Story {Beauty}

April 30, 2014
IMG_66971.jpg

When we talk about going all Ayurveda, being close to nature and only applying *natural products*, do we really mean it? Of course, apart from the usual home packs that we create, or in my, what my grand mother suggests as being ‘organic'; the products that we buy in plastic bottles… are they really natural? You might want to do a background check on that jar of bottle again! Unlike other Indian brands that claim to be natural, but are in someway or the other chemically enhanced; Iraya is one such stand alone brand which really means what they claim to provide. I was recently invited to check out their Delhi store, which is located at The Promenade, Vasant Kunj. Right now as I am scribbling my blog about it, I am wearing one of their 100% natural face pack that needs to be refrigerated at all times. Not only it soothes out all the skin burns exposed throughout the day, it guarantees to leave behind a lightly moisturized skin (thank god for that!), that does not cry out for another dose of moisturization right after the application. These masks are made from finest natural sources including freshest flowers, freshest fruits and vegetables all mixed with absorbent clays for deep cleansing, toning and to rejuvenate the skin. Sweep away the dull and tired skin this summers as Iraya’s Fresh Masks reveal your brighter and smoother complexion.These perfectly blended fresh masks incorporate unique textures and colors, that need to be refrigerated and has expiry date of 2 weeks. About IRAYA The Iraya brand of beauty and wellness products was launched in 2006 by Sadatan Pure Ayurveda Pvt. Ltd. Sadatan has been manufacturing and exporting beauty and wellness products for over 20 years in highly evolved beauty markets like France, Italy, Russia …
