best smartphone of 2017 gionee A1 review, camera, selfie phone
New phone in the market ?? It always attract my attention. Before you upgrade to your new smart phone, here is a low down on the New Gionee A1, which if you follow me on instagram, you would know that I couldn't stop flaunting it , the minute I laid my hands on .
I got myself a Black colour, and I realised the sleek metal casing (also found on the pricier phones ) has a look and feel of extreme luxury.

The Do’s and Don’ts of a Juice Diet

Friday, 9 June 2017 /

To be honest, juice detoxing and cleansing have become too mainstream. They have become such a rage that you may feel left behind if you have not tried it yet. Also, you may assume that you can quickly get started with the diet following the same pattern as your friends.However, the truth is, the diet is unique for everyone and calls for some planning and preparation. Yeah, you read it right! So, if you are under preparation to take the much-hyped juice diet, you must find well in advance what would work for you and what wouldn’t, to reap maximum benefits out of it. So, before you start, you need to own a juicer and put it to beneficial use and adopt healthy habits.

Stone Jewellery - Buy Stone Jewellery Online at Best Prices in India

This post displays a haze of affectionate nostalgia , the calm of summers, the unstudied effortlessness, carefree mood, unencumbered and in sync with some patterns which have survived time's decay.
Today I am going to Introduce you all to my new favourite brands - Obeetee Rugs and Cotton Rack.
I was sent one of the finest pieces of  Obeetee rugs rendering Weaves and designs relating to ancient motifs and fine arts and intricate detailing . Indian Veteran designer Tarun Tahiliani recently designed a few majestic carpets as a part of Proud to Be Indian collection for Obeetee, which has his signature quintessential Indian design and a great initiative put together as a whole to bring forth country's artistic rug heritage in a more grand and upscale form.
This Rug has already taken a centre stage in my living room and clearly reflects the hopes and desires on display in the detailed motifs, design and the colour which renders wealth and prestige or a social identity in its old world charm kind of a weave. 
My idea of wearing this dress and sitting on the carpet was conceptualized even before I saw this rug and much before it was even sent out. 
Cotton Rack is a premium and; ethical Khadi lifestyle brand with attention to details and minimal designs. Its a pure amalgamation of the traditional and the most grounded, zero carbon footprint Khadi with contemporary cuts and silhouettes that suits the modern & mature palate.
Brainchild of Vinayak and Rameshwari,this Smart Khadi white dress has a pure blend of Cashmere wool and Coolness of cotton alike. Two years into the research and then finally coming up with Khadi minus the coarseness is what keeps the balance of the outfit. Kudos to you both for bringing out great value to the garment . 
Our successive generation has a total less of an idea what was life back then when people lived out a pure Khadi moment. Many years later still gearing towards sustainability, brands like these should definitely be supported and promoted.
Our Prime Minister's Drive -  Make In India is well echoed through these two brands. 
I felt the aesthetics of both the brands was an equal marriage and invoke a visible yet irresistible tale of an imagined era and its recreation in the best way I could put forth through a picture story.
Clearly these photos are my sole interpretation of a character ( in my head) . Initially I wanted to portray / Evoke Hallowed ideals of virtuous women, but things took a different shape when I spoke to Sahil about the kind of mood I wanted my pictures to have.  Turns out he wanted me to have a Halo instead and suggested we bring some flowers to add to the mood. I opened my closet to him and we settled on this flower crown to create a Pseudo Halo something something ..... . 
There I was sitting on the Rug ,flashing in my mind was the fairy tale of Aladdin and his magic carpet, picturing the movie, step by step ( in 3D) with my eyes closed, feeling the clouds, when suddenly with a loud thud I came back on mother Earth and split into a rapturous laughter . Sahil while trying to create that magical angle had fallen down from the chair. Lucky for him , only his back was hurt while his camera wasn't. 
Sometimes creativity does bite back and you may or may not notice from the sequence of my photographs , but post this short take off and landing, we later  settled for only playing with front shots minus the chair.
I hope you like the pictures, and I can't wait to hear what you feel :)
Until Next time !!

The New Whisper Ultra Soft is 2x times softer

Monday, 20 March 2017 / ,

Today's post is about a little period talk and how choosing the right sanitary pad is tricky. With all the sanitary care products on the drugstore shelf, how do we know which is the right one for me ?

When it comes to choosing the right pad, the first and the primary most thing I look for is comfort. 

Plaid That Is

amazon india fashion week street style
With the return of the  checkered culture, I am more than happy to announce that I got my laptop back, which has some of the long forgotten pictures that I always wanted to post, but couldn't because of some or the other major technical mishap. It was an unanticipated recovery , but who doesn't love some extra content ? In today's post you would see ,whirling through the time when traditional met modern and delivered a chic look of a different stripe. The photos may date a few months old, but I like to get absorbed in this new era of Plaid- ness - rather than Plain-ness .

A classic shirt dress is one of the signature downtown piece of clothing and it's even crept into the runway by no crook, also known for the old grown love of all things comfy and can be literally mined for its familiarity . Juxtapose several trends together and this piece of clothing gets a new lift rendering high fashion in  the most legible and consumable forms. The trends I am talking about here are in the little extra details delivered via sleeves ,in the form of a creative bow knot which can be moved back and forth or played around for a more cutting edge show. Todays outfit is dramatic, I know I know, the sunnies kinda steal away the show , but not outrageous ? I don't know- But you have the liberty to Judge away  ...
Though rules are not hard, the trick for mixing plaids is quite obvious . I love mixing things in all my glory, but here is a rule - You don't want to mix plaids of  same sizes or colour, but feel free to experiment with other prints. In my case my floral larger than life sunnies are a fashion extra , more on the stylish front than on a rakish one.When you see something thats been put together in patterns you have to take a moment and look and see where it works ?
I like it when high fashion aesthetics are fused into accessible and relatively affordable clothes that has at least a little kinship with high-end streetwear which kinda serve as bridge and lets you cross that line where nothing becomes not (buyable ).
With New York Fashion week 2017 (NYFW2017 ) and Milan Fashion Week 2017 (MFW2017) just ending up and India fashion week 2017 around the corner, I see plaids trend has been tossed out and street style witnessed some most amazing styles and mixes which were better than the runway and grabbed my eyeballs. While I may find my realm in a school girl inspired plaids at the moment, and still adding more to the shopping cart with another window open on my device,  you don't forget to bounce off in the comments and tell me what kind of a plaidster you are ?

Just In Time for Summer

Oriental fashion and the kimono, amazon india fashion week

While our city has been swallowed by financial troubles, and demonization has become a legit excuse for not indulging in fashion at the moment, the Indian fashion movement has a very low key vibe unless things take off fully after another season of Amazon India fashion week scheduled to happen in March.

Today I am going to emphasize a little more on the traditional rather than the modern , and after the mainstream use and strangulation of the word FUSION, I think we should open a poll on what should we call this form of dressing  ? From subtle fusion , to horrendous fusion, my few grey hair have seen it all . And since we are doing this poll, maybe think about a new term for " FASHION BLOGGER " too ?
Blogging industry needs so many new names . Five years before, it was a different charm to explain to someone what you do , exchanging cards, telling them how blogging is the new age of fashion.
Now even my neighborhood DHOBI knows about fashion bloggers . " Kal hee madam aayi thee photographer ke saath !! Boli main fashion blogger hoon , aapke yahan photo lena hai "
Clearly the Fashion blogger wind has reached places , and the bloggers have left the stable and are running wild down the road influencing as per their own capabilities/incapabilities

Why are Medical or legal/financial services blogs not mushrooming like the fashion or lifestyle blog? The answer is a no brainer, coz neither you require a professional degree nor a formal education of the subject,nor ownership of a requisite number of dresses/accessories/footwear.And the best is that you need not even have the vague sense of fashion styling or even dressing up. It adds to your snob value if you do not possess writing skills.It really takes talent to misspell words and rephrase( make a hash ) idioms as per ones personal sensibility or translation skills (from Hindi to English ).Well, no one has got a Literature award for writing correct English on a Blog but who knows one day such fractured english may win you an Ingenious Award for Fusion English. If Singaporeans are proud of their Chinglish, why can't we be for our Hinglish...?? After all we are the koll centre ( call centre )of the world. Don't believe me !!! Sample this-  "The whether these days is "magicfull" so I opened the window and let the atmosphere come in "

Since the Fashion and Lifestyle Industry has decided to slowly phase out the following Influencers who have a decent sense of fashion,knowledge of styling, updated on the latest or upcoming trends, interacting with designers, engaging writing skills, fresh talent would be inducted in the next financial year. 
So come one come all. Criteria for joining the Fashion Influencer community is us under .You can be an eligible blogger if you are:
1.Shuffling between jobs (part time or just for fun )
2.Out of a job and taking a sabbatical (read unable to fool the next employer ) 
3.Modelling ( you will automatically be pushed four ranks up ) and utilizing the time between assignments 
4.Run out of money,boyfriend has thrown you out .Want to get even with the evil world.
5.Page 3 aspirants (preference would be given to candidates who could murder to get a selfie with Sonam Kapoor or any of their favourite movie stars )
6. Fashion week bloggers - Bloggers who attend to get their own Paparazzi moment in front of a street style photographer and has no interest what happens on the ramp. Talk to them about any show, and swear you would regret bringing the topic up . Forget about the show- There is so much confusion in what season they are attending . 

Wow ! Everything in this fashion world is worth inspiration . Honesty does not flow very easily.Its effect is yet to come and you may hate me as of now. But I truly hope that I am able to wash down everything here.
Okay Surbhi - STOP Enough........ Breathe In ...... Breathe out ......
Now since my rant is over, enjoy the outfit I wore for AIFWSS17 which took place in the month of October - Treat this as your season hint and grab that Cuppa coffee now.

DeBelle Cosmetics- Natural Based Nail Lacquer In India (with seaweed extract )

Wednesday, 18 January 2017 /

We all want that magic that would just push our nail growth faster isn't it  ? Besides this we always wanted our regular nail polishes to be a no chip polish at the same time giving us the sheen we always wanted.
Well here you go then - Introducing DeBelle cosmetics Nail lacquers enriched with sea- weed because it's time we get the best out of everything.

Applying nail polishes in the longer run has its own set of Pros and Cons , Pros being just a temporary beautifying gratification and Cons being many , the major one being damage of natural nails ,or weakening of nails because of  continued application.
I know you all could relate to the fact when your salon girl tells you to give your nails a rest just after a yellow nail is exposed minutes before that manicure ? "Madam - Pls let your nails breathe . Too much of Nail polish is not good " I have been told this a gazillion times.  But who cares ? I want that shiny looking colour on my nails.
Its good to talk about new brands and new launches , but at the same time it's important we don't deprive ourselves of the proper nail education and care.
Talking about DeBelle , when they told me that they are one of a kind in India to manufacture nail paints with sole natural base and with sea -weed extract , that helps promote nail growth without any damage to the nails plus comes in trendy colours , I had all the reasons to be among the first ones to test these polishes and tell you all about my experience. I also googled a lot of facts with relation to sea-weed and nail growth and was quite impressed when these nail paints delivered what I expected .

To simplify things Its a little miracle when it comes to nails and  I laid down a few facts for your info
 About Sea-weed  Extract and Nail growth - Seaweed is nothing but Marine algae ,and is found naturally . This sea ingredient helps improve the condition of our nails and hands . The long lasting results of these sea extracts are strong, healthy looking and beautiful nails in the long run after a few uses.
First Impression after using De Belle Nail Polish - I got the two most beautiful shades - Bebe Kiss ( Pink ) and Moulin Rouge ( Red)
Both the colours impart a great shine only with two coats of application .It dries about nice and quick. I do a lot of normal household chores , ( just in case you think I don't have a life besides the glam world ) which includes, hands in water , and trust me your nails do take the beating for that. The nail paint has a very thin shiny layer , and after three coats I still don't feel the weight of any nail paint on my nails, unlike other nail polishes ( I wish I could take the names of bigger brands here , but lets keep the things simple )

Odourless/ Doesn't peel  - De Belle Nail polishes are odourless , dustless and safe for all the ages. This doesn't peel of in a bad way unless you put a layer everyday and removes normally faster than other ones I have used.

Clear and smooth application - After using this for over a month I can safely say that the application is pretty smooth, and has a very satisfactory (non clumpy) consistency . I love the brushes too, I think they are wide and thin. I strongly feel it would definitely work on nails that are tough to grow and I recommend using this wholeheartedly for quite sometime , until  satisfactory results are achieved.

So these were my impressions with the first ever sea weed polishes I tried in my life, and I am in love. With a little bit of a learning curve , I hope you would get to try these as well coz you really can't beat the shine and wear of this one at least.
DeBelle Nail Polishes are currently available on Amazon .
