Durga Puja Series: Adda jomuk "Nabami" te !

Hi Everyone,

When it comes to celebrating Durga Puja , Navami nights are special for two reasons, first, your heart and soul are happy and fulfilled with all of the previous 3 days of celebrations and second, you feel a little sad because the great celebrations are coming to an end. For us, we typically like to enjoy Navami nights by taking it a little easy and staying at only one Puja pandal for the entire evening, eating away to glory all of those Mughlai Paranthas and fish chops like there's no tomorrow and enjoying the cultural programs with the entire family. Usually, I like to take it one level up with some heavy makeup as opposed to light makeup that I usually wear, because Navami Nights I know would be easy and COMPARATIVELY sweat free ;)

Durga Puja Series: NOW TRENDING, Pakistani Suits , the current rave in Indian Ethnic!

Hi Everyone,

After I posted my first look in the Durga Puja Series, I did get a few questions regarding what were the Fashion Trends this season as far as some Indian/Ethnic dressing was concerned. Since I'm based out of Gurgaon/NCR, I can say for sure I'm more aware about the current fashion trends in salwaar-kameez suits and what is currently a hot trend in this part of the country are the Pakistani style salwaar suits with their conservative and traditional styles mixed with contemporary patterns and cuts.

Durga Puja is one occasion when Bengali Women love to flaunt all kinds of latest trends in Fashion and this time I'm sure I'm going to see a lot of such suits in all pandals during those four days of non-stop festivities.

Ever since I started watching this new channel called "Zindagi", I have been admiring the way in which Pakistani women wore salwaar kameez suits. Their styles intrigued me, and I found them more suited to my taste and dressing style. The pakistani suits have certain distinctly elegant highlight points which I'm listing below:

The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex design my eyebrow #02 Dark Brown : Review

The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex design my eyebrow (Rs 300/ 0.25 g), available at Sephora

Eyebrows are an important part of your face and if you choose to ignore prepping them, no matter how well done the rest of your makeup is, it would still look incomplete. It took me really long to realize that (I just started using eyebrow shaping products and tools about 3 years back!!), but ever since I did, there's no looking back. The most common reasons why many Indian women chose to ignore shaping brows was that

  • Eyebrow pencils were available in just one color, BLACK , till about a few years back
  • And second, shaping eyebrows was thought to be a cumbersome task, which I belive still is, unless you have a tool that can make your life easier

Advantages of Online Apparel Shopping

Saving a lot of time and money while shopping and still getting the perfect product, is the latest trend these days. And this is done with the help of some fantastic online stores. Clothes are one of the hottest selling items on e-retail stores today as they are available in a very large variety all at the same place, and this is something which is not possible in local stores. With frequent fashion sales on these online stores, people no longer hesitate in ordering the apparels of their choice for any occasion vey easily, just with a computer, an internet connection and a few clicks.

The convenience of online shopping always tops the list of reasons why people choose to buy even clothes here, in spite of the fact that clothes need trials before selection. This is backed by added features on these websites wherein they provide facilities of home trials in select cities with the help of which buyers can return the product back in case it does not fit well. Moreover, with numerous choices of stores like Flipkart, Myntra, Snapdeal, Jabong, American swan, Homeshop18 and more, all you have to do is shift pages if you don’t find the perfect fit on one platform. There is also the hassle free payment option which saves the time you'd spend standing in long queues. With secure payments gateways on most websites, you can choose to pay through debit cards, credit cards and net banking. On most pages you can also opt for the cash on delivery facility. Return and reimbursement policies of these stores are also sorted and the process is very simple.
