Look Of The Day - Heavy Metal

Look Of The Day - Heavy Metal 

Metallic hues are a rage. The heavy metal look does not fail to stand out and is a perfect style statement. Shimmering gold, sparkling sequins and lots of bling is timeless. One can choose from various metallic hues like silver, bronze, gold or copper which exude class and luxe. 

However, it might not be easy to emulate for everyone. You can go for a top in metallic hues and subdue the look by minimizing the accessories or pairing it with neutral colored pieces. If you shy away from these metallic hues then embrace the trend by donning funky accessories to perk up your outfit. Also, I think the metallic eye makeup looks smoking hot. 

In the outfit I am sporting the 'Heavy Metal’ trend. I have paired a golden top with a zipper skirt. Funky and bold metallic accessories take the look to a whole new level. I heart those midi rings from FabAlley. I love the fact that it spices up the ensemble with its gold accents. Here take a look.

Culinary Delights - Saffron Bay

Culinary Delights - Saffron Bay  


Chana chaat - Baby potatoes, chick peas, ginger, green chillies and chaat masala
Pahadi Kabab ( Chicken cubes in fresh herbs and dry spice cooked in open fire) 
Chicken Chettinad 
There is nothing like spending a convivial evening watching the sea after a tiring day. Many of you would not be aware of the existence of this restaurant near the Marine Drive that serves authentic North Indian food. 
I happened to visit this place and I am was quite over whelmed. Saffron Bay is divided into 3 sections comprising of the rooftop bar, the restaurant and the banquet. 

The terrace has a great view and the dark ambience provides a perfect setting to break free and indulge in good food. However, the fine dining area seemed a little too dull and was deserted on a weekday. A look through the menu reveals regular Indian and mughlai cuisine. 

We started with chickpeas chaat and kebabs for a protein packed bite. I love chickpeas and it is also packed with nutrients. The chana salad was simple and executed well without making the dish too complicated and over-the-top. The pahadi kebabs were succulent and we could feel the goodness pervade our senses. With our tummies intrigued, we eyed our mains. 
I was in no mood to overload carbs for the dinner. I didnt have the breads but preferred to try the chicken dishes and curd (aka raita). My friend ordered chicken chettinad and it was not as exciting as the menu had talked them up to be and was swimming in oil. 

I am not that into desserts and we decided not into indulge in a sweet splurge. The menu did have some authentic Indian desserts. My friend ordered a kulfi based on chef’s recommendation which was a perfect end to the meal. 

As we know Sundowners is the new buzzword in the city and Saffron Bay has also introduced their Sunday sessions, complete with cheap drinks and cigar bar. Also note that the cash spent on food and beverages will be donated to terminally ill cancer patients. Hats off to their initiative! 

Verdict: The place has a lot of potential and I would love to go back again for the rooftop view and succulent kebabs. 

What I like? 
- The rooftop bar facing the sea will mellow you down especially if you have a thing for rooftops like me. 
- It wont make a hole in your pocket. One can make use of their promotional offers on the weekdays and enjoy an evening. 


- The hospitality and impeccable service. 

What I didnt like? 
- The Chicken Chettinad was a bit too oily and didn't live up to my expectations. 
- The menu is not as elaborate and they could come up with more innovative dishes.

Look Of The Day - Going Green

Finally I hunker down to publish an outfit post after so long. I don't really have much to share. In the outfit I am wearing a simple green dress with a cowl neck. This is one of my go-to looks or during one of those days when I feel I have nothing to wear. I have paired it with nude pumps which is perhaps one of the most effortless dressing style. Here take a look.

lenskart.com Review and my Shopping Experience

lenskart.com Review and my Shopping Experience


Hi Readers! Summer is at its peak and the heat is killing me. I am doing my best to beat the heat and take care of myself. Mumbai heat is scorching and really intolerable. 
Here are some of my new additions in my summer essentials list. 



I am all for natural products that are cruelty free. Forest Essentials is an Ayurvedic brand. This 'Light Day Lotion' is my new found love.  I am definitely gonna get another one. (MRP: 1300 INR)

I decided to pick up some funky sunglasses which are pocket friendly. I heart my aviators but a pair of oversized sunnies would amp up my summer look. Sunglasses are one of the most essential fashion accessories and are a true testament to its functionality. 
I came across Lenskart.com which has India’s largest eyewear collection online. l and unlike other e-commerce websites it has a user friendly interface and offers major eyewear brands.

Choosing the right frame for the face can be tricky. I am very particular about the right sunglasses. Most of the large framed glares do not suit my face shape. So I picked up a funky silver blue grey sunglasses. They are quite an edgy take and will pep up my summer look ;)

Lakme Fashion Week 2014 - The Grand Finale

Lakme Fashion Week 2014 - The Grand Finale

I have not been able to update my blog everyday during the Lakme Fashion Week. The grand finale got over and ever since I have been running amok and doing my pending work. 
The hustle and bustle, maddening chaos, fashion parades, backstage frenzy and style contests has all come to an end. I cherished all 6 fashionably  extravagant days and live tweeting the shows from Lakme Fashion Week handle officially for IMG Reliance. There seems to be an abominable lull in the world of fashion. However I am looking forward to Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week in Delhi. 
Here are some of the moments I would like to share with you. Let the pictures do the talking.

Lakme Fashion Week - Day 2

Lakme Fashion Week - Day 2

Day 2 at Lakme Fashion Week was a little dull except few shows which took the limelight. It was a Bollywood stars studded evening with glitz and glamour. The maddening chaos, backstage frenzy, selfie booths, make up by Lakme Absolute Salon, tea tasting at the Tea lounge by Typhoo and chilling with drinks at Stoli Lounge kept us going and gave a jolt of energy. 
Here take a look.
