My ‘Hair Care’ regime usually suffices on Oil-Shampoo-Conditioner ritual. If I feel like extending the ritual, then maybe a leave in hair mask. Although, I always wonder how much of that conditioner actually stays back to nourish my hair? Having a super oily scalp anyways, I take extra precautions while conditioning. But the thickness of those conditioners always leaves my hair heavy and greasy in no time. Bottega Di Lungavita, the Italian skin care brand, have recently introduced an interesting ‘Hair Conditioning Spray Balm’ in the Indian market. Balsamo Spray Conditioner Balm This innovative hair care spray features active ingredients that prevent dehydration, fragility and split ends. It stimulates repair of damaged hair while increasing its volume. Practical and quick to use, this spray conditioner requires no rinsing. Spray lightly onto rebellious and dry hair to aid styling even on days after shampooing. It envelops the hair and restructures it while adding softness and moisture. Directions to Use Spray uniformly onto hair that has been washed and patted dry. Leave on for a few minutes and then comb, without rinsing. My Experience My hair type : Long wavy oily hair. After using this spray for almost 2 weeks now, I can say that it does help detangle long hair. Gives a subtle shine to the texture and promises a super light coat on the tresses. Ideal for hot summer days, this spray balances the moisture during humid days as well. Likes Easy-to-handle plastic spray bottle packaging. Mild fragrance Super light texture Does not stain C.O.D. available on purchase HERE Dislikes Priced at Rs.990/- this win-win product might be questionable (to buy) for the first time users. How I Use It? Post the Shampoo-Conditioner ritual, I crunch my hair dry with a towel and spray the balm all over. Main focus …Continue reading

PUMA El Rey Future – Review
BlogAdda.com gave me this amazing opportunity to own a pair of Puma El Rey shoes. I had always been into sports wear for two reasons, 1 being a basketball player AND 2nd, my foot size. When heels make a girl look sexy and feminine, a good pair of sports shoes makes a girl look hotter and smarter. Puma El Rey shoes are one of those uni-sexual creations that might just turn on your hip-hop side. When I wore them for the first time, I literally wanted to groove to a Jay Z track. The shoes : The best part about Puma El Rey shoes are that, they are very light weight, which makes it very comfortable for the wearer. Not only they are light, but the built it strong, which makes them wearable on a daily basis, all day all night. Since I received them in hot Delhi summers, I was wondering if I should wrap them up for winters, or try wearing them presently. Well I guess PUMA consists of Einsteins, because these shoes have perforated air circulation system, which let’s my feet breathe, even in this hot Delhi weather. Another added point to these Puma El Ray shoes is, that they are lace-less! You don’t need to worry about tying your laces all the time, which sucks for a person who is everyday on his/her heels, running errands and does not like dirtying the hands. The style : As far as the style is concerned, these shoes, apart from having a very sporty and stylish look, come in 3 types of color combinations. Grey-Black-White, Red-Black-White and Orange-Blue-White. I really wanted to lay my hands on the Orange-Blue-Whites, but was wondering if I will be able to wear them with maximum looks… so opted for the basic Red-Black-Blue color …Continue reading

(Well I hope the coverage grows with time ^_^) So this time I got the opportunity to cover FRENCH CONNECTION store in Saket. The moment I was inside the store, I could feel the cooling effect of the color palette, the texture and the designs, specially crafted for hot Delhi Summers. First I checked out the MEN’S SECTION! They have a good color palette to offer when it comes to Polo Shirts. The texture was perfect for summer dress ups.

Wedding Special – Sublime Joaillerie
I was talking to a fellow fashion enthusiast, and the topic came up that Wedding Season is round the corner. Loads of vibrant colors, jewels, glitter and glamour. So an idea crashed my mind to celebrate WEDDING SPECIAL WEEK. After a succesful Tangerine Week. Some days back Rima Ravindran, a Luxury Jewelry Designer approached me to feature her amazing collection on Kalapalette. Some interesting facts about Rima are that her foray into the Jewelry industry began with her ‘Keishi Pearl Collection’ for Al Futtaim in Middle East. In Damas, she worked on the Fior Collection. Further to that, she was contracted by Tanishq for their launch in American Market. She has also created Jewellery for Swarovski’s Gem Vision 2011. Perles De Tahiti has awarded her designs on national and international levels in the year 2006. Her work has been also been shortlisted by World Gold Council. Company founded by Rima, SUBLIME JOAILLERIE showcases exquisite collection of Contemporary Luxury Jewelry. The collection shouts elegance, glamour, royalty and femininity. Each piece is crafted with utmost care with a complimenting price tag.The icing on the cake is, every piece crafted is exclusive, and if you own a pair, the design will be resting with your forever. Now comes the fun part 😀 Since we are celebrating WEDDING SPECIAL WEEK, I am bringing you some pieces from her collection, which you can try, and steal the spot light of the wedding. 😉 Break the rules, instead of the authentic red and pink go for goth colors this wedding festival. Pair goth colors with bright and shimmery neck pieces like Sublime Jewelry’s Tahiti Pearl Necklace to brighten up the wardrobe.This combination not only stands out in the crowd, but also makes a killer statement. If you still adamant about sticking to the authentic wedding color palette, go for a fuchsia …Continue reading
