Hey everyone!


Today i want to talk about a much loved brand for indian wear, BIBA, that has been spreading the joys of traditional indian wear since 1986. I have personally shopped at BIBA quite a few times most recently a gift from my grandmom when i visited her house for the first time after my wedding, very well remember wanting to buy all the pieces in the shop! lol!!

I specially love their latest Anarkali suit collection, Anarkali is a an extremely elegant and universally flattering style of salwar kamiz with an A line frock style upper and a slim fitting bottom, its also the preferred choice of indian wear of celebrities from the Indian subcontinent. What i specially love about the Biba Anarkali collection and why i am talking about it, is the variety, they have so many prints and colours and styles at reasonable prices, perfect for any occasion that you have to wear Indian. Also specially want to mention the sizes, they literally have it all!

How to style Anarkali suit-

Jewellery to wear- If you choose a bold piece, keep the jewellery min and let the suit be the centre of attention and vice versa.
Shoe style to wear- Open toe high heels give you hieght and make the look more formal, for casual occasions go for flats or juttis.
How i love to wear in 2017- Choose a white or plain design like the first one above and top it with colourful tassel earrings, heaven!!!

I have chosen a few of my favourites  from the BIBA anarkali collection, above,  but you can check the whole collection at their online shop


Thank you for stopping by! See you in my next one.

Hey everyone!

India is the worlds largest manufacturer of carpets and Obeetee carpets is one of pioneers of hand woven rugs in the country. To take the incredible indian craft and quintessential indian designs to the world they have collaborated with the countries most exciting designers to bring a spectacular collection of hand knotted carpets. 

I had the pleasure to attend the launch of the first of the four designer collections, Tarun Tahiliani x Obeetee, in the beautiful Bikaner House in New Delhi and was completely awe struck by the simplicity of the collection.

About Obeetee- Founded in 1920 the company has grown to 650 permanent employees and engages over 20000 independent artisans for weaving and processing. It is the leading producer of hand knotted, hand tuffed and flat woven carpets in India, holds the worlds first wool mark license for hand knotted carpets and the recipient of many national and international awards. Obeetee care’s for the extended families of its workers and is committed to becoming more and more environment friendly. They strive to bring the best quality products to their customer with focus on innovation while preserving the old indigenous crafts and designs of India. 

Tarun Tahiliani X Obeetee- Celebrated Indian couture designer Tarun Tahiliani is known for his focus on indian embroidery like chikankari in his collections and there is great synthesis between his work and Obeetee. Together they have come with a collection that is a nod to India’s glorious heritage and her vibrant present. The framework of the collection is based upon three distinct design structures- The Antique Frames Collection, The Chikankari collection and The Abstract Art Collection and thus making it truly global but with an Indian soul. There are many firsts in this collection like for the first time fine Zari threads have been woven into rugs, classic indian motifs like Kairi booties and stylized floral patterns like lotus and rose have been extensively used to add significant detail and lusture. The carpets are produced in as natural surroundings as possible and are very close to sustainability, one rug taking almost a year to produce these masterpieces are no less than a timeless treasure. 

There are plans to take these limited edition collections, rightly being called the ‘proud to be indian collection’ all over the globe beginning with New York, USA in February.

Winter is not particularly a great time for skin. Dryness, flakiness, breakouts & blemishes, some of the common problems, my skin also gets tight and uncomfortable. So last year in the last leg of winter i put together the changes in my diet and habbits/ rituals come a/w to find out what i was not doing right and what i should do to keep my skin looking fabulous. It is working well and my skin feels better than it usually does around this time so i thought of putting all that i have been doing on the blog.

top indian blog, uk blog, london blog, winter skin, winter skin do's and dont's, care for winter skin, winter skin care tips, winter beauty tips,  dry winter skin, tips for dry skin in winter, beauty tips for winter season, winter skincare tips, dry scaly skin, skin care in winter season, skin tips for winter, winter skin tips, beauty tips for winter, winter dry skin, how to take care of winter skin, winter skin, dry skin itchy, how to take care of skin in winter, dry patches of skin,



1. Do not skip water, if you are bad keep an alarm for every hour or hour an a half.

2. Do not get lazy and follow ur skin rituals cleanse, tone and moisturize.

3. Do not over cleanse, since the cold weather takes away a lot of moisture from our skin do not over cleanse, may be if u use clarisonic or something bring the frequency down from a min to 30 secs or from twice a day to once, specially if you have dry or sensitive skin.

4. Do not splash hot water on ur face no matter how cold, lukewarm is the best.

5. Do not skip sunscreen no matter whether the sun is out or no there are other radicals in the environment that have the same effect as sun rays and even if we don’t see the sun it doesn’t mean that the harmful rays are not present.

6. Keep a check on the hot caffeinated liquids you consume. If you really feel like having something warm just have warm water.

7. Do include some form of exercise if you can’t go out because of the cold, practice indoors like yoga or squats or just put your fav music and dance off. Physical activity takes out the stress in our body and flushes out toxins, both great to keep the skin clear and flushed. 

8. It might be convenient to just order home delivery on cold lazy days but its really not the best thing, after all home cooked meals are the the most nourishing for ur health, skin included. Cooking can also be a fun family activity plus a stress reliever.

9. Include omega oils in your diet to nourish the skin from inside good sources are fish oil capsules and flaxseed oil for vegetarians.

10.You can also massage your face with essential oils, if that sounds too complicated good old coconut oil is great.

11. Snack on nuts they are rich in the good oils great for the skin.

top indian blog, indian luxury blog, uk blogger, london blog, vichy review, vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum, vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum review, vichy india, vichy uk, vichy india price, vice uk price,



I am sure you have heard of Vichy, if not its a  french skin care brand that is very popular and loved all over the world. I recently received their Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum which i think is great for todays topic i.e winter skin, using it for about a month and here is a rundown of what i think, 

The packaging 
I am super impressed, its made of glass, yes but a hard one, very luxe looking and comes in a pump bottle which is very convenient to use. I also love the blue colour of the bottle.

What it is for?
To deeply hydrate the skin.

The ingredients
All listed on the packaging to name a few glycols, silicones and fragrances.
No paraben, mineral oil.

Application
Two pumps are more than enough, apply normally on your face.

Where to use in makeup routine?
Since its a serum after toner before sunscreen/ moisturizer. Does not interfere with makeup.

Skin types
Any

How does it feel on the skin?
Absorbs instantly into the skin and its not sticky or oily 

What i found good
My skin is dry and gets tight in the winter as i mentioned and this has worked quite good for that. Does a good job at hydration, i noticed my stubborn dry patches also relieved and overall luminance of the skin improved.
One day just to test it out i skipped moisturizer and my skin felt quite comfortable until 2 hours or so after that i definitely felt the need to moisturize. 

What i did not find good
I try to avoid products with fragrances as they have caused allergies in the past, and this has quite a strong one but having said that the fragrance does not last more than 5 mins and has not irritated my skin till now, if it does i will def let you know.

Price for 30 ml

Hey everyone!

Camel is said to be one of those colours that makes everything look luxe and made well. I absolutely love it and that explains the two purchases in todays outfit the jeans and the blazer from Zara, if i remember well i also got them together. Ok i love it but its one of those tricky colours that i find hard to style. I try to imagine the various colour possibilities but find myself limited to try them but i promise, that i will gather  more courage very soon and rock all the combos i am going to list below. 

Some colour combos to try with camel:

1 Camel+  cream
2 Camel+  shades of red like true red and burgundy
3 Camel+  shades of blue like navy, cobalt and pale blue
4 Camel+  neutrals like black and grey
5 Camel+  shades of pink like hot pink and pale pink

6 Camel+  hunter green

As you can see i am rocking the top two colours together in todays outfit cream and red. Ok cream is safe but i get all the points for wearing my red leopard slingbacks.

 Draping your blazer or jacket over your shoulder is such a cool styling trick that is actually nothing but gives so much to the look.

 I wore this outfit to a restaurant launch, India Bistro in hotel Diplomat, Chanakyapuri. If you are reading this from New Delhi, it is your place to visit asap, if not, whenever u find yourself in New Delhi and want to have the real Indian food, India Bistro is The place. It is authentic Indian food with an inventive touch and the food tasting was one of the best i have been to.

Loved the interesting collection of paintings and the mango basil melody my dear friend, Abhilasha had was yum. I had a soar throat so couldn't relish the drinks but the honey tea they made for me was heaven sent for my throat, think hospitality!!!

The best dish and the must have was the Snow dahi bhalla, (below), even better than the famous one from chandni chowk, the chef also demonstrated how they make it. Loved how they use liquid nitrogen to get all sorts of fun effects.

Well i am not a food writer but i am a foodie  and this place is a foodies paradise both visually and taste wise. I was also very impressed with almost equal number of vegetarian dishes and  can't wait to take my mom in law who is a vegetarian soon.

Hope this review is helpful at some point and also the colour combos to try with camel.

Colour combinations with camel + India Bistro launch

Hey everyone!

Camel is said to be one of those colours that makes everything look luxe and made well. I absolutely love it and that explains the two purchases in todays outfit the jeans and the blazer from Zara, if i remember well i also got them together. Ok i love it but its one of those tricky colours that i find hard to style. I try to imagine the various colour possibilities but find myself limited to try them but i promise, that i will gather  more courage very soon and rock all the combos i am going to list below. 

Some colour combos to try with camel:

1 Camel+  cream
2 Camel+  shades of red like true red and burgundy
3 Camel+  shades of blue like navy, cobalt and pale blue
4 Camel+  neutrals like black and grey
5 Camel+  shades of pink like hot pink and pale pink

6 Camel+  hunter green

As you can see i am rocking the top two colours together in todays outfit cream and red. Ok cream is safe but i get all the points for wearing my red leopard slingbacks.

It does the job so well and my fav bit, it makes your hair look shinier and healthy.

2 Hair sectioning clip or hair clips to hold hair

Heat protectant spray

3 hair elastics 


2-3 bobby pins


Hair- need not be freshly washed as the hair style is a bit messy and effortless.

Steps



1) brush your hair and make sure there are no tangles

2) divide hair in two equal parts horizontally and secure the top part with your sectioning clip.

BRUNETTE HAIR STYLE




3)  spray the lower part with heat protectant.

4) take around one inch section of hair from the lower part and curl with your 25mm irresistibleme hair wand. See how gorgeous the curls are and it did not take me more than 10 mins to curl the entire part, and mind you that is for my long hair.

 5) loosen the curls a bit and then secure the curled portion with a clutch or section clip and bring it to one side.

6) now open the top part of the hair and divide into three equal sections left, middle and right.

7) make a fishtail braid of the middle section  ( fishtail braid- divide the section into two, take small piece of hair from the outer edge of the left section and add it to the right and then a small piece from the outer edge of the right section and add it to the left, keep on repeating this till the end of the hair and then secure it with a hair elastic.)

8) make Dutch braid of the left and right sections ( Dutch braid- divide the section into three equal parts and cross the left part under the middle and the right part under the middle, it's just how u do a normal three strand braid, but instead of crossing the sections over the middle we cross them under, keep on repeating till the end and then secure with a hair tie.)
