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

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!!

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. 

6 Amazing Work Handbags at Jabong.com

I found 6 amazing work bags. An ideal work bag should be big enough to fit all your girly essentials plus a few bit n bobs of office items (e.g. the stationary you stole. Just kidding.) A dainty chain purse will certainly not do and will look a bit barbie-ish at work. So here are 6 bags all under 2000 Rupees (whaaat?!) I know, amazing right?! Neon- check, Electric Blue- check, Black with studs - check, lady like pastel Blue - check check! Basically, Jabong.com has an amazing range of handbags.

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!

Pernia’s Pop Up shop–Interview!

Pernia Qureshi, the lawyer turned designer/stylist (she styled the ladies of bollywood flicks 'Aisha' and 'Thank You') has created the net-a-porter of Indian designers. The e-retailing website houses almost every major Indian designer including Rohit Bal, Sabyasachi, Anand Kabra, Anamika Khanna, Masaba and many more. In addition, there are Pernia’s own lines titled ‘Pernia’s popup shop’ and ‘Pernia Qureshi’ (my favorite piece from this line is the coral dress). Prices are not for everyone, as is the case with designer lines in general I suppose, but it has a LOT of very affordable pieces undr Rs. 10,000 too. Obviously a sabyasachi saree is not realistically affordable for everyone, but a girl can dream cant she. Most importantly, it’s great that people from all over the world have access to Indian designers’ collections. Pernia Qureshi will be showcasing her collection at the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week too. Check out www.perniaspopshop.com right now NOW and read on for the full interview.
