SHANTANU & NIKHIL’s – THE MAHAL at India Bridal Fashion Week 2015

With so many fashion weeks happening back to back you lose track of who showcased what. But then there are special ones or the ones that are exactly what you like. One such a show was SHANTANU & NIKHIL’s MAHAL. This time the designers created garments using swarovski crystals. And one can imagine the bling and glamour that must have brought to the clothes. I love swarovski but I am not a big fan of very shiny and jazzy things. And indian bridal wear and bling go hand in hand. But then there are two phenomenal designers who are also the drape masters and their USP is understated elegance. One of the few designers who concentrate on tailoring more than making the outfit look grandeur by adding sequins and crystals. Clean lines, luxurious fabrics, structure, understated elegance, drapes are a few words that describe Shantanu & Nikhil. A thing about their clothes is that they are either a hit or a miss. There is no in-between. I love their entire spread this time. Also there are very very few indian designers who actually take effort in making a beautiful menswear collection. If you ask me who my ideal man is, I would just say that my ideal man is a Shantanu & Nikhil man. The dapper,stylish,raw man.

A stepping stone in the world of Internet – AIRTEL 4G

In today’s world, people are running faster than light, well metaphorically. But truly, we are so active and want everything in a jiffy. A pizza is delivered at our doorstep in less than 30 minutes. We find new ways to get things speed up. We do not have the patience to wait for anything. And especially we youngsters are the most impatient ones. We want everything just a click away and as soon as possible. I am an Internet hoarder and just cannot live without my phone and Internet. Sometimes I get annoyed where there is so reception or my Internet isn’t working smoothly. Also I’m a blogger, and keeping an eye on everything that happens is my job. A lot of times I lose track of so many important things and updates because my internet isn’t fast enough, especially when I am on the move. In situations like these I miss WiFi and wish to stay home. A hassle free fast Internet is my priority and that makes me the happiest. Even though the phone has 3G network, that’s not enough. We always want more. And this is a demand that needs to be fulfilled. I think now I might dance in joy as airtel has launched 4G. Airtel is the first telecom operator to roll out 4G services.
 How awesome is that. I have a 4G compatible phone, yet no 4G. But my wait is over. Airtel launched the 4G which is faster than anything you can imagine. You must have a look at their TVC and judging by that, it’s all you ever wished for. A super fast Internet on your phone. 
The best part is Airtel is home delivering the 4G sim right at your doorstep. All you require is a 4G compatible phone. Also please do not think 4G is going to be expensive. It’s going to cost you the same as 3G.You can request for the sim on their website(link given below) and your 4G sim will be delivered with a 3G data pack. You can also tweet to them at @airtelindia and use hash tag #GetAirtel4G and they shall help you in getting a sim. You can have a look at the TVC by clicking on the link (a must watch) – TVC
Also check their new website – www.airtel.in/4G . The site will take you through all the offerings of the product. 

I personally cannot wait to get my hands on it. Fashion blogging and keeping up with twitter and other social media has become easier. This is a once in a lifetime offer and just cannot be missed. Use the technology to its maximum benefit. Get started immediately. What’s the delay. This is all we have been waiting for.

REVIEW – BBLUNT anti-frizz leave-in cream

The importance of good and healthy hair is something we have all read about. We always want to look our best, and our hair plays a major role in making us look good. With every season change, our hair behaves differently and all of us have different hair types. But one common problem we face is frizzy hair. Some day or the other, you experience this dull, frizziness in your hair which spoils your entire look.
I have very fine straight and almost silky hair. I would lie if I said my hair is always frizzy. But lately because of the move and water and weather change, my hair has lost its sheen and is very tangly and frizzy after wash. Since I have silky fine hair, applying serums make my hair look flatter and greasy. So I generally avoid serums. But that dint solve my problem. After being frustrated and dealing with hair issues,  I finally got the opportunity to try this anti-frizz leave-in cream by BBLUNT. And the best part about it is, its from their climate control category. This is exactly the solution to my problem.

A few highlights of the product:

– It is very light in texture and leaves the hair smooth without making it look greasy.
– If you have straight hair, it does not make your hair look limp.
– It does not have a strong smell so it is very good for people who have allergy issues.

– After applying scrunch your hair a little so that the product is evenly applied.
