Hyderabad Literary Festival' 2017


Hyderabad witnessed its 7th literary fest last week! I would not say it was fabulous, but it was not even disappointing. It was nice... Guess, thats the word, Nice...

Anyway, so it was held in Hyderabad Public School (HPS), one of the most famous schools in our city. 

I went on the 3rd and the closing day of the fest, which honestly I still regret! Because, that day there were no authors. And when you go to a literary fest, you go with an expectation of meeting a lot of amazing authors, listening to them, talking to them!  And I could not meet any! And that was really a disappointment!

Anyway, so the fest was full of music, dance, cultural events, theatre, film screening, art, paintings, talks, conversations, panel discussions, readings, workshops, exhibitions and book launches (off course). It was basically celebrating creativity in all its forms!

The festival was in its seventh edition, as I mentioned above, was a much bigger and more sumptuous affair with around 30 literary events spread over three days (27th Jan to 29th Jan) with six panel discussions, and eight literary sessions every day. 

There was a huge range of interactive art, cultural events and exhibitions! HLF pays special attention to one Indian language in each edition and this time, the focus was on Tamil language. 

I got to see Shamir Tondon perform. He is best known for his music in Madhur Bhandarkar’s National Award Winning Trilogy: Page 3, Corporate, and Traffic Signal.

He was there with The 6 pack band, who won the prestigious “Grand Prix Glass Lion” at Cannes in 2016. We saw them performing and needless to mention they were just astounding!

Sharing few pictures with you!

Review: Scholl Diamond Crystals Velvet Smooth Express Pedi electronic foot file


I bought Scholl Diamond Crystals Velvet Smooth Express Pedi electronic foot file. Phewww! Finally I was able to write this complete never ending name. I am going to call it scholl in the rest of the post please!

Yes, so I bought Scholl few months back, after a lot of pushing from inside. I was little skeptical to buy this one, as I am not a very big fan of such products. But then my feet really get dry and they need extra care! So, I thought to take the risk and bought this one. And trust me, I was not at all disappointed.


Its easily one of the best things I have ever bought. I get to give a good (if not awesome) pedicure to my feet, almost every week. It makes your feet soft and just amazing.

I made almost all my friends buy it and they just cant stop thanking me :)

BTW, I bought another one last week. The first one was just taken away by a friend! hmmm...

The first one, I bought it at amazon at full price Rs 2,850
The second one, I got it on discount for Rs 1,499

Try it out if you haven't bought it yet. You can buy it here

P.S I read reviews about it on net before buying and the most common mentioned con about this product was 'it cant be used on wet feet'... For me, it is not a con because I wait for my feet to dry :)

Goa 1

If there is one place in India that I love, love and love (I can scream that million-billion-trillion times) is GOA!

I make sure to visit the place atleast once a year, with or without my family or friends... I have, infact been there on a solo trip as well!!! Love it so so much!

And I'm in love with its culture, the zeal, the passion you feel in its air...!!!

And at last but not the least its fashion... the style that you get to see there is just so indescribable... You don't get to witness so much fashion and style anywhere in the country... Right?

Here is a series of pictures from the first day of my last trip to Goa...

P.S. Guess, I am going to go again after seeing these pictures... soon!!!

Shopping from 20dresses.com

I recently bought a pair of shoes from www.20dresses.com and I just loved them!

The only problem, I guess is with their sizes. Order one size bigger than your regular one.

I generally wear size 39, but on 20dresses, I order size 40!

I have ordered some 3-4 pair of shoes and 4-5 bagpacks from their website and the quality is good for the price. Actually, even their designs are just awesome. They are very different from the regular stuff that you get elsewhere!

Putting up some pictures for my shoes. Cant wait to be in them!





P.S. And this blog is gonna get me killed! How??? My husband will come to know about ALLLLL my shopping now :(

Sankranti in office

I am a huge fan of celebrations and festivals! They, being around kind of fills me with life and excitement… 
Sharing some pictures from office on the eve of the beautiful festival of Sankranti…
We were suppose to wear ethnic, but then i thought just sarees and suits cant be labelled as ethnic… right? So, instead i tried a beautiful dress from Vastra by Milonee
Jwellery is from Amarapali…
P.S I am really not that great of a poser! Phewww…



Golconda!

Went for a picnic to Golconda fort last weekend and must say, the place never seizes to astonish me… It makes me fall in with its every brick and every corner, every time I visit it.. And the history of the place, just adds up to the flavour..
Every time, I go there, Golconda leaves me mesmerised. So next you are in Hyderabad, Golconda is a must visit. Mark it on the list as default!
Anyways, sharing few pictures of mine from the day:

NYC

I had been so skeptical about this blogging thing that had to really convince myself today that I can do it… My friend had been quite busy from last 2 months, she got to work in an awesome upcoming Tollywood movie and the most exciting part, she recently styled Shruti Hasan, who is a part of the movie! So glad… And she will join as soon as she is done with the movie!
Anyways, moving on with the post… I had been to states last month, so I thought why not to begin my blogging journey from there!
Posting pictures of one of my favorite dresses! I wore it in NY city.  I am in love with this dress from French Connection… I thought to team it up with white shoes, which I am just getting so much addicted to these days!





The Beginning


A marketing manager in an IT firm by profession, I play various and different roles in the other part of my life. An avid reader, a dark chocolate eater, wild, passionate, Shy at times and OCD-ic the other times, an untamed shopaholic, a packrat of shoes, jewelry, bags and clothes, a fashion addict…
This blog evolved from two friends, who share a common love (apart from many others) of getting dressed up, of trying new stuff and their love for fashion and style,
I love reading fashion blogs, and all these wonderful women out there with their amazing blogs had been our inspiration for this blog.
I love dressing up… Just love it… I love experimenting, I love adding new styles to my diary… This all kind of gives me a kick… it makes me happy…
And my style is very simple, I do not believe in buying very expensive stuff because I just wear or use it once or twice… And this was probably one more reason for me to become a part of a fashion blog: to help young women all over, to understand and be inspired by my personal style – which is not at all expensive, is quite affordable and can surely make you look like a rockstar! Guess, this is one thing that I miss: nobody to guide on street-styles: the simple one which are highly stylish and something that doesn’t leave a hole in the pocket. You will get a lot of stuff on Manish Malhotra’s, Sabyasachi’s and alikes on net. But then its just not possible for a common girl/woman to afford these. We can afford a piece or a two of these. But can we have a full wardrobe of them? No! And that’s the reason I thought to come on a blog with super affordable styles
All I hope is that every woman or girl out there finds a little bit of herself in me…
