I wore this Kaftan last On my trip to Goa, a bit differently than the way it is. It Says Nature -B-Negative, totally opposite  of me especially when I have so much to be positive about. B-Negative is my blood group and B has always been my grade in school in Arts and Craft coz I sucked at it. Now that we have gone back in history, let me be reminded of the fact, that the summers are getting intense,especially with a plethora  of shindigs and Kaftans like these can be perfect coolers and fit for any body type.Its  multifunctional and I need more to work them into my everyday wardrobe. My daughter calls it a Kite top coz in her language the sweeping sleeves provided for a straight up drama lol, looks like just the thing to warn people whats coming ,except that the dolman sleeves have to dragged through the soup course.
The shorter Caftans( both the spellings are fact correct ) are effortlessly skewed with my "W" Fab cotton pants; another best things that happened this summers. Pleated fit, stretch fabric, have pockets and zippers on the ankles and I have that Tres'Glam look up ready.

"Indian Food and Wine" Book by Michael Swamy and Nine Hills | The Opening Of Cafe Delhi Heights, Cyber Hub,Gurgaon

Sunday 25 May 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

Cyber Hub  has become  the new corporate leisure center, representing distant future, and is a diners paradise !  Food and wine connoisseurs, restaurant hoppers, shoppers ,you name it, and its the most popular hangout zone even for us delhities !
Cafe Delhi Heights, is one of my favorite eating places, and when I got an invite By Nine hills to witness the launch of  an exclusive book to pair Indian food with wine, I couldn't resist the temptation ...
Michael Swamy , an Indian Chef and food stylist is the proud author,of the book titled- "Guide to pairing Indian food and Wine"  was present to talk about the inspiration, and infact churn out few recipes from the book, and show off some cooking skills in a quick demo of some of the stellar Recipes ! It was fun to know that the key to making the  best matches are an open mind and sheer intuitiveness, and which comes from experience.
It is the first book in the wine category in India that takes a holistic look at pairing of the flavors, textures and heat levels of Indian food, with wine. 
I was quite surprised when he talked of pairing wines unlike the classic combos of Stilton cheese, but rather one could go ahead and experiment it by bringing the most authentic Indian dishes or street food combos and make them marry to suit our palette  !
This event also marked the opening of cafe Delhi heights Cyber hub, Gurgaon and if you ask me my favorites from the menu, we have a great conversation promised ahead.

Summer Fashion Hearts And Magazine Print Shorts

Monday 19 May 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It was a perfect rainy day, gloomy with  lil showers , and it was time to make it bright on the outside. After the bundled up winters bygone , I was itching to show some legs and create a perfect summer spring board look. A leggy pair of shorts surprises everyone especially when topped with something too casual like a cropped tee, which brings bold boudoir dressing outside the bedroom, and meets matchy -matchy  head-to-toe color. I felt that this outfit exudes a casual confidence in an irresistible way. Dressed up in my black transparent dior inspired pumps, I like it when it has that "Je nai sais Quoi"(french for "indefinable vibe") and the vintage accessories being put on a high coz they have an evergreen fashion history . I could wear this outfit to a happy hour stroll (reminiscing Bangkok streets ) and then can go take a nap in these ! This outfit is a wardrobe staple for anyone at any age and now I can't wait to experiment and convert this rocker chic look to something more sassy for the night. stay tuned :)

A Day At Four Fountain Spa,Delhi

/ , , , , , ,

A day back I was invited over by the people at Four Fountains Spa,Delhi to experience a few of their services. Four Fountains is located right amidst the shopping indulgence of South Ex,New Delhi and  It kinda serves as a girls perfect love me some day spa getaway , that too after a full day shopping swing !
The location being perfect, lobby though a lil small to accommodate the ones in waiting, but the humble decor covers up for that ! It isn't the extremely cliché Damask set-up (which I am getting sick of since many places are like that now) but It was personal and cozy...
 From the minute we arrived, the staff was friendly and attentive to our every need,With the heavenly redolence of lemon grass ,and calm music to soothe every nerve before the therapy begins, they have the right ambiance to set the mood.
We had several last minute changes in requested services and their manager Shanky(don't know if its spelt that way) was so gracious and accommodating with the only glitch being that we were not offered a couple room:(
Then goes on to your choosing the treatments bar and explanation about what actually is being recommended.The treatments are more result focused which ranges from their list down menu which was generally  divided into 4 categories being-Detox, Immunity, rejuvenating, and beauty . I was amazed to check out the prices , as they were pretty reasonable, and much affordable as compared to other Spas,making it one of the most economical spa in Delhi area !
L- R -My gorgeous partner,The staff, and a leaf from the beauty section
I chose to go ahead with a beauty trial with skin lightening facial massage-60 mins and body polishing-30 mins !
The treatment rooms are fairly big and spacious, dimly lit and music aligned to create the most relaxing atmosphere possible.The skin care products boast of natural ingredients to spoil oneself organically and awesomely.
After a smooth rubdown of whole body with calming  oil laden, coffee and cane sugar scrub(yummy),  smaller pores and baby soft skin came as a result.It left me feeling new again,and my pores are thanking me for this gesture after the sun inflicted summer tan, took the better of my skin lately.
Firdous was the lady assigned for my pampering, though a lil nervous knows her work well.The facial was so incredible and relaxing I fell asleep. Not only I got my black heads popped, but she also utilized the time while my pack dried to knead all my tense muscles. Though there was little conversation and she frequently asked me if the pressure/lighting/temp was right a few times(more than I expected which is good) . 
L-R- My Therapist Firdous, The couple room, and Wisdom on the wall
After the session , they serve their tea nice and hot, which I really appreciated.This review can go on and on, but let me just save more for rest of their services.I'm also eager to try the body treatments for immunity boost,and would probably switch for a different treatment next time - something with a little more pizzazz.

Mother's day

Monday 12 May 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mothers day should be celebrated everyday and not just on a dedicated day that we decide to shower words which are as melodious as a lullaby ! You know my sentiments about Valentine days and it holds true for mother's day too ! I kinda faked to my 7 yr old that I had forgotten which day it was and I tell you that its these uncoaxed , unrehearsed affection bursting out from lil kids which becomes the greatest memory note ! My daughter made me the sweetest card with things outta a wishlist(mostly jewelry) and some stuff which I am too possessed about(fashion wise) like my Michael kors tote ! There was a supermom costume which apparently gave me some insight on how my future is gonna be like since it involved a big time presence of  wings and a cape , very Spy kids but true, and which also incidentally bore some resemblance to mothers day  Google doodle page with moms in capes ! She made this card days before and I can safely say that I intend to keep all the copyrights lol :) You can Check the card photos on my Facebook page.
It was a day off as in truly off-  peace and quiet ! We went out for lunch and shopping and these Swarovski earrings were a gift keeping the occasion in mind. On the way back, after my dress was crumpled from every possible corner, we decided to further ode it to the celebration and call it a day :)

Pastel Punch | Fashion How to Wear Pastel Trend

Sunday 4 May 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

I picture Pastels with everything Fondant and Sugary and then the whole color talk becomes more of edible than being fashionable ! I was waiting to put together my new Pastel Prada SS'14 bag(my most viewed pin), and introduce it modestly to this seasons in-demand hues. These Mint Sunnies are a recent buy from HM , and were just the right pick to get a Neopolitan Ice-cream look, and the rest of the Canvas was better put to white (they work the best this way) ! 
A great way to start wearing pastels is through the accents and when it comes to wearing this newly defined palette of noticeable colors, anyone can do it.One just have to choose the shade that works well, and then add a bit of extra drama. I thought it would be more dramatic to add a punch of sherbet something to my neck and brought about my lost and found necklace (I talked about here) before walking out that door .
So tell me about it ! How would you add some drama in your pastel presence ? Is it the accessories which are played or you love getting Frocked up in a pastel color?
