Wella Bloggers Meet - Delhi

Recently I was invited to the "Wella Truth Behind Hair Color" bloggers meet held in New Delhi. The session was brought to the blogger audience by Maria Castan a scientific communicator from P & G. In the session Maria covered the science behind Ammonia v/s No Ammonia as well as addressed questions women around the world had about hair coloring. Did you know that your hair dye that says 'Ammonia Free' on its package so proudly, doesn't necessarily mean that its damage free?! Keep reading to find out why. Below is the press release with inputs from Bollywood actress Shradha Kapoor

Karol Bagh Decoded

Hanuman Statue next to the Metro. Amazing view from inside the Metro!!

Today I ventured out to a part of Delhi that I've never really been to in my life (read: not South Delhi).
Shock, horror. I left Delhi when I was a kid and have never really ventured out to parts outside South Delhi. But Delhi is *massive*. Apparently the government is rolling out a new number plate system for auto rickshaw's which will specify which part of Delhi they are from , N S E or W. Delhi is *that* big.

Sarojini Nagar Decoded

After dissecting Lajpat Nagar market, I decided to do the same again. This past week I went to another of Delhi's most popular shopping hubs, Sarojini Nagar. Located near I.N.A. this market is easily accessible by metro and any other form of transport. Nearby you can go to Dilli Haat which is an awesome little gated market to visit for handicrafts and other very 'Indian' produce.

September Jukebox

Haven't done one of these for a while, so I've tried to make this one as varied as I could (I tried but I have my favorites..no rock or oldies this time, sorry.) Laura Welsh makes a comeback in this list, I wrote about her electric track 'Ghosts' earliy last year. I don't generally brag, but this is one of my best playlists!!

Lajpat Nagar Decoded

So today we ventured to South Delhi's favorite market, Lajpat Nagar. If you are in the midst of wedding shopping, my verdict would be to avoid this market as there's just not a great range of stuff here. Its a nice enough market for everyday Indian wear but its real strength is in its accessories especially footwear, bangles and other such trinkets!

Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara- Soundtrack Review

Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara Review Soundtrack OUATIMD

Finally! The entire soundtrack is out! Worth the wait you ask? Absolutely, I say! The album is made up of 5 tracks out of which the first 4 were released what now feels like years ago (around May/June). Rarely has a Bollywood soundtrack been released where I've thoroughly enjoyed each and every song. Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara is probably among the rare few. Others that came a close second would be Devdas, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (because I was a 12 yr old girl which was basically all of SRK's target audience in 1999), Delhi Belly, Dev-D and Pakeezah (ofcourse). But lets not get started on the oldies because there's too many gems there.

Issaq Soundtrack Review

Bollywood's modern-day Romeo & Juliet, starring Prateik Babbar & Amyra Dastur has a soundtrack that's full of love songs. So if sweetness is not your cup of tea, maybe skip this one.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - outfits available at Pernia Qureshi

If you like/LOVE the outfits worn in YJHD you can buy then at Pernias pop up shop here. Designed by Manish Malhotra, a few saris are sold out, (eg. the blue one below) but lots of choices still there, including Ranbir Kapoor's silver sequined kurta! I don;t know who designed Madhuri Dixit's beautiful lehengas (also the ones in the background are beautiful and so summery!) so if anyone knows, do let me know!
