Diwali Outfit Idea

Hey Everyone,

I am sure most of you are done with diwali shopping and can't wait to doll up for the festive season. But if you are someone like me, I am sure you are still searching for the perfect outfit.

I was looking for something ethnic with a modern touch. Not too blingy and over the top and I came across a few pieces on Myntra. Sharing the idea with you all. Maybe it will be useful for the last minute shoppers.

Diwali Outfit
The Blue Jodhpuri Salwar was love at first sight. Beautiful colour, with  golden embroidered taping makes it perfect for the festive season. Pair it with a simple Pink kurti . The kurti has a delicate hand embroidery around the neck line so skip the necklace and go for a pair of matching hoop earrings . A potli bag to carry your make up for touch ups, etc. Complete the look with these kolhapuri chappals. They are not only pretty but also super comfortable. And don't forget the pink lipstick before you step out. And you are ready. Head to Myntra now and check out their Cracker Of a Sale. They have some great offers lined up.

Liked the idea? Do let me know in the comment below. 

Wish you a very happy and safe diwali.

Ghar Wali Diwali

Hey Everyone

I know its been really long since I wrote the last post. But trust me new job (with working Saturday : ( ) leave me with no time to do anything. Kudos to all the Bloggers who manage both work and blog regularly.

Yesterday, I managed to leave early from office and on my way back home, I was making a list of things that I can do once I reach home - Clean, my room, update blog, order a pizza and watch a movie before I doze off. But as they say - Do not count your chickens before they are hatched. 

All my plans went down the drain when I saw that the door was locked. I didn't have house keys. I never carry them as I usually come back late and there is someone at home all the time. Locked out on Saturday evening at least for an hour. Poor me. 

So I went down sat on an old  bike with earphones plugged in. I still prefer to sit on old bikes even if the seats are empty. And when I looked up, saw only one diwali lantern lit up. Only one of the 32 apartments had diwali lights with the festival less than a week away.

Are festivals really choosing their charms? I remember how grand diwali was when we were kids. I started with 10 days Diwali vacation. Mummy made so many sweets and savouries. I always wanted the first karanji that she fried and she would say "thanda hone do. Muh jal jaayega" . How the house was cleaned and painted every year just before diwali. Early in the morning, on the day of Lakshmi pooja, beautiful rangolis were made. We would dress up  in new clothes and go down to light up some phuljharis. No bursting crackers because we were told its not a good thing. The last time I burst crackers was when in class 3.Hated it back then but I am really happy now that we didn't. After the pooja we had a lavish diwali dinner cooked with love by Mummy. This is how diwali was celebrate. Simple but filled with love. Everyone is busy now. Away from home for studies, work.  I so miss  Ghar Wali Diwali .




How do you celebrate diwali? Do let me know in comment below.

P.S. : I had put up the diwali lighting  as soon as I got into the house yesterday night. Mummy was puzzled "Itni kya ghai hai?"

Happy Diwali:)

Zindagi - Jodey Dilon Ko

Hey Everyone !!!!

If you follow me on Twitter you already know what I did last Saturday. If not go here and read. Or just continue reading this post :D.



I got a chance to attend yet another Indimeet. If you have been reading the blog for a while you know how much I love them.  A chance to meet fellow bloggers, lots of fun activities and great food always make my day.



Zindagi IndiBlogger Meet was organized in Mumbai and Delhi to introduce us to Zee's new entertainment channel Zindagi - Jodey Dilon Ko 



The launch of Zindagi is significant in many ways as it is not just as entertainment channel 
but  a  philosophy  that  will  help  Indians  empathize  with  the  lives  of  those  across  the 
geographical  borders.  Zindagi  reinforces  the  vision  of  ZEE’s  corporate  philosophy 
‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbukam ‐ The World is My Family’ and aims to unite people in India and 
across the world with shows produced overseas. 

Entertainment is seamless as it cuts across boundaries and across strats of society. With the 
message of ‘Jodey Dilon Ko’,  Zindagi will touch hearts and break barriers to relate with 
people living across borders. As the first‐ever national launch for a Hindi language channel, 
the objective is to continue to deliver and spread strong human values through hand‐picked 
content across the world. 

Starting June 23, Zindagi will bring viewers in India stories from across the border, starting 
with stories from Pakistan that embrace universal emotions. A variety of shows, written by 
award‐winning novelists, literary stalwarts and adapted from famous novels and books, will 
engage audiences as a fresh alternative on television. 



This meet was not just fun but also heart touching. We were not only live in conversation with Delhi bloggers all the time but also got to interact with people from across the border - Sultana Apa, the director of Hum Network and Actor Imran Abbas (HE IS HOT!!!!) who joined us at the Mumbai venue.
Rather than writing a long post, let me just quickly tell you the highlights of the day.

Did you see Delhi Blogger on those two screens?

  • This is the first time these international shows will air on Indian Television starting with Pakistani TV shows. But there are already fans of Pakistani TV shows here in India (All thanks Youtube). If you don't watch TV serials like me because most of them are looooooooooooong and unrealistic give these shows a try. Why you ask? Well these shows don't have more than 25-30 episodes  and promise some good and realistic stories. Also you finally get to see what life really is across the border.
Add caption

  • It was Mumbai v/s Delhi. Yes debate on which city is better in terms of transport, street food, bloggers and Men (in terms of hotness). MUMBAI IT IS. And yes we earned it by proving it at the event.
Imran Abbas

  • It was great interacting with people from across the border. To see that there is no difference between them and us. As Imran Abbas said - "Ek hi mitti se humari jade nikli hai" (we have common roots.) Also both Sultana Apa and Imran Abbas, answered each and every question that they were asked by the bloggers from both the cities not just related to TV but everything in general.
Mumbai Bloggers

  • And apart from these we of course had the regular fun games that ended with a hud hud and a group photo. I am so happy that I got to attend attend this Inter-city and Across Border meet. Hats off to Indiblogger and Zee for making this happen.
Don't forget to tune into Zindagi TV starting 23rd June, 2014 not just for entertainment, but also to support this attempt by Zee to bring together the two countries.

TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo Conditioner | Review

Hey Everyone !!!

For those who have been reading the blog for a while now, I was a tomboy is no news. But for those who haven't been, here is a quick flashback - I was a total tomboy till a few years ago. I never cared what I wore, how I looked. Many a times I  would go out wearing my Bro's T-shirt with loose jeans. Makeup, skin care, hair care were not at all a part of my life. No not even Kajal or Lip balm. Wondering why I am telling you all this? Continue reading and you will know why.

One day during school summer vacations, one of my cousins had come to my place. She was I-Know-It-All types. She saw me picking and ripping the ends of my hair in the afternoon and said, 
" Oh no!!! What is wrong with you? Don't do that. They look really bad. You have to cut them now."

I looked at her with a a shock face "What? What are you talking about?"

"Split ends. Don't you know you have to cut them or else they'll  grow upwards and lead to hair fall. You have to get a hair cut asap." she said.

"Really? No other way to get rid of these?I don't want to go to the parlor" I said.

"No" she said. " Cutting your hair is the only solution for split ends."

And this is what I have been doing all these year. Split Ends = Hair cut. Not just me, all the people I know do this, even if they don't want to.

So when TRESemme came up with their new range - Split Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner I had to try it out. I have been using this for about a month now and here is my review.

TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo Conditioner

This is what my hair looked like before I started using the TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner. There were no split ends but the ends of my hair had become very dry and rough.

TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo Conditioner


My thoughts:

The shampoo has a very runny consistency and lathers up very well. 2 washes and it leaves the scalp clean. Though you may need an additional round of wash if you have oiled your hair. It has the typical TRESemme fragrance which is quite pleasing and lingers for a while even after 4-5 hours.

My thoughts:

The Conditioner is very thick and creamy. Similar to shampoo this too  has the typical TRESemme fragrance which is quite pleasing and lingers for a while even after 4-5 hours. Hydrates the hair very well and also keeps it from tangling.

TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo Conditioner

Final verdict:

So does this work? Yes it does!!!  Though I didn't have split ends but it did help repair rough, dry ends. With all the dryness gone, the hair looks soft and hydrated. No more hair cuts for split ends now : D.Also it did not lead to any hair fall. At this price it is a great shampoo not just when you have dry / split ends but also for everyday use. 
TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo Conditioner

Don't know why the camera could't capture it, but it looks far better in person.

It is a humorous takeon inter community marriages in India.

The brand has associated with the character ‘Ananya’ within the film with perfect fit. Full of optimism and gusto, Ananya believes in facing challenges with a smile. Ready to bag her dream job as a Sunsilk brand manager in the film, she fears nothing. She mirrors a typical Sunsilk girl’s personality- a dynamic and an optimistic girl who wants to chart her own course.

Therefore to further engage with our consumers, we are also launching an exciting ‘Sunsilk Dream Job’ digital campaign that would run parallel to the movie. The idea is to get four regular aspiring girls a chance to live their dream job. Actress, Stylist or VJ - whatever their dream jobs might be, Sunsilk and Ananya will work together to make it happen. We are confident that this partnership will bring more excitement for our consumers.”

For a young and fresh film like 2 States, it was important for us to only partner with a brand that would perfectly fit with the young attitude and expression of the lead characters, played by Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.

We couldn't have found a better fit than Sunsilk that would reflect best with the confident and attractive personality of Ananya, the lead female character played by Alia.  It also helps that hair plays a big role for us in showcasing her personality transformation from her college days to a professional! So this association is no doubt an apt coming together of two quality brands in a unique way!”
