A sight for sore eyes!

The cute Nature's Co bag comes around for a review!

I absolutely love the eye pillow
When The Nature's Co sent me its products to try, i was thrilled. Because as i opened the cute packaging, I found a rosemary eye pillow, which i have been needing for so long now. We all spend such long hours on the web that sometimes it's so necessary to give our eyes that much-needed rest. And when I put the pillow on (which can be strapped on easily like goggles), after letting it coll in the fridge for a bit, it took away the tiredness in just a matter of minutes. and the whiff of the rosemary make the experience much more pleasurable. I wish i could just lie like that and listen to music all day long. They also sent me a cucumber face wash, the best thing about which was that it didn't leave my skin feeling dry once i used it. And that's a real plus.
Also, Nature's Co, as the name suggests, stays close to nature and all their ingredients are natural. Now what could be better than that! If you like to get in touch with them, log on to their website or check out their facebook page.
Coming up next: A fab outfit post!! At least i hope it will be fab! :)

The AM:PM launch

The stylish junior stylist at HB, Allia Al Rufai. i love her jewelled waistcoat
It was a fun wine and cheese evening as Ankur and Priyanka Modi opened the doors of their label AM:PM, at D7 in Khar, in association with Harper's Bazaar. Indian Summer found the colours refreshing and ideal for the festive season around the corner. Also, the label seemed intent on designing for women of all ages and sizes. There were dresses, kurtas, tops and pants, all with one major thing common -- they were all very wearable. And that could be the reason why they are so popular -- and now retail out of 40 stores between 9 countries and 12 major cities across India. The fact that Harper's Bazaar was hosting the event also upped the ante. In fact HB editor Sujata Assomull personally greeted guests such as Nachiket Barve, Simone Singh, Aki Narula and many others. We look forward to seeing how the brand takes over Mumbai. Cheers!

The Golmal effect

I am quite a simple shopper. i usually just go to zara, promod, chemistry or vero moda, as i know these clothes last for a long time and quality and fit is great. But for my eclectic shopping and some great stuff through the years, i have always gone to Golmal, a pretty boutique in Lokhandwala, owned by the stylish Simrita Dhillon. I have often found some great buys here...some which are featured below.
This yellow dress is super comfy and so cute!

I love the way falls over my shoulder

This blue dress as well fits perfectly.

come on over!
Golmal is launching its Naughty Ganesh line for the festive season. You have to drop in. details with invitation! see you there!

Indian summer tries on a man's shirt

So when the stylish Sonu Bohra asked me to try on a man's shirt for the It's a Man's World challenge, i jumped at the chance. I hadn't worn a button down shirt for years now. I ordered the shirt online, which has super cool stuff for men btw (ladies, it's super easy now to buy gifts so log on), and the process was super easy and fast. I placed the order in five minutes and got the delivery two days later promptly. i also loved the super cute packaging. Now if all online shopping was this simple.
To style it, i kept true to the Indian summer style and kept it simple. I just tucked it in in a pair of dark-coloured jeans, and accessorized with a flower broach and ballerinas. It was super comfy and perfect for this weather. And i think it looked quite chic. The best bit: i met ace designer Aki Narula for an interview wearing this and he actually told me how good it looked and that he loved the broach to make it look more feminine.
So girls, don't be shy. if you don't know how to layer a man's shirt,  just go the simple way that i did, and be preppy chic. Hope you like this.
