WoW Hair trend to try…

While one of the most awaited Bollywood movies Tamasha is gearing up for Diwali release, the teasers are grabbing all eyeballs. I love Deepika Padukone’s sun-kissed hair colour that makes her stand out as an effortless diva in this romantic flick. I got the look this weekend and here’s what makes it WoW:

hair

1# It is subtle yet sexy. You can carry if off fashionably with any outfit you like.

2# It is low maintenance as you don’t need a frequent hair cut and can wear it messy but still look classy.

3# It is trending on instagram currently as balayage or tie-die which is almost like hand painted hair strands. Try it now!

5 WoW ways to Accessorize…

If you have been shopping for clothes mostly, try picking up different accessories for a change. By mixing and matching a few of them, you can wear the same outfit differently. I felt WoW picking 5 pieces from Accessorize to redefine my look in the red floral printed dress.
Here’s how to do it in style:

1# Dare to wear a floral tiara: With this ultra feminine hair accessory you can  make heads turn at a brunch…

2# Swing along a sling bag: A purse with a cute motif can complement your casual chic style effortlessly. Choose the one you like to carry for some quirky fun element.

3# Throw on your sunglasses: While you need to protect your eyes from the UV rays of the sun, sport the one that frames your face well. A sexy pair of aviators can boost your glam quotient instantly.

4 # All ears for cuffs: If you wish to go subtle with your style, try ear cuff that graces a single ear lobe. Push your hair on the other side, over your shoulder and flaunt a celeb-style, side profile?

5 # Neckpiece to match: You can dress up your look effortlessly with a nice neck piece that sits pretty gracing your collarbone. It would spell classic for an evening date!

5 ‘WoW’ reasons to be @Kebab Korner

exotic platter sweet takeaways exotic great view

#1 As far as the exotic recipes are concerned, they are from the legendary Chef Imtiaz Qureshi with a modern presentation by the sous chefs.
#2 While you are bound to get spoilt for choice, some of the ‘must-try’ dishes from the menu are –
Starter:
Kakori Kabab – the skewers of minced lamb are grilled on charcoal embers and will simply melt in your mouth.
Main course:
Khameeri roti – is soft bread cooked in clay oven and topped with exotic saffron.
Safed murgh supreme – has strips of tender chicken tossed up in mild spiced cream and yellow chili gravy.
Desserts:
Jalebi pearls as the name suggests, the caviar of jalebi are worth savouring with royal rabri by the side.
#3 The view of Marine Drive is completely breath-taking! You would want to sit by the huge glass windows overlooking the Arabian Sea and get mesmerized.
#4 While the décor is classy, the ambiance is warm and welcoming.
#5 It is a place ideal for a traditional, sit-down family buffet but you can also enjoy some couple time or ‘me-time’ there as well.

Wear stripes differently!!!

How innovative can you get with stripes, depends on you. So next time you decide to wear something semi-formal to work, ditch the stripped business shirt and opt for a smart dungaree instead. Here’s what I choose to do to make my weekday dressing different and feel wow even on a Monday!

# Team up a simple black and white stripe bottom-wear with a fresh green for a change.
A hint of fluorescent always has a fun and funky effect.

#Keep the mood casual chic with minimal accessories.

#Simple makeup and clean hairdo always works best to complement this street style effortlessly.

Fabulous confidence booster!

When you wish to wear a tight casual top or a well fitted party dress, the fitting of your innerwear defines the look from within. I decided to shop for fancy yet functional lingerie that would be ‘fabulous, as I am’!

I took my pick from Enamor’s spring/summer 2015 collection with Parisian theme. The Eiffel tower motif which is an iconic symbol for fashion, is my all-time-favourite. So I definitely wanted to select the bra with that print on it as it spelled the elements of glamour, elegance and romance from my dream city, Paris. But what makes it wow is the fact that:

#The fit is perfect and can make any simple outfit that you wear it with, look graceful no matter what is your body shape.

#The satin finish feels good on the skin and is ideal for a hot humid day as well.

#The straps are cute enough to be flaunted with a tube dress without looking OTT (over-the-top) or vulgar at all.

By adding such a ‘confidence booster’ to my wardrobe, I felt WoW!

Dress like a #Princess

Women love to ‘day dream’ about a number of things and clothes tops that ‘never-ending’ wish-list…

So if you are still wondering on a Wednesday afternoon what to wear for that Friday evening party, you can start surfing for options like I did. The ‘key words’ that I had in mind were –#Hollywood #fashion #redcarpt #style #glamour #elegance and more…

Though there were loads of options to choose from, I finally found this attire from La Tej by fashion designer Tejal Kandpile, that made me feel like a princess in a wink.

A WoW evening gown

Here’s what makes it ‘WoW’:

#The blend of fabrics like cotton, satin and Georgette make this ‘diva silhouette’ a perfect amalgamation of structure and fluidity. You can wear this gown to an evening do and look red-carpet -chic instantly.

#The colour scheme complements most complexions as this maxi dress has a rust red bustier teamed up with grayish blue long skirt. The matte gold, sequin embellishments upgrade the royal feel of the attire.

#The curved embroidered yoke, the motif of two fierce lions roaring and the keyhole cut-work will boost your glam quotient effortlessly.

Keep the makeup classy to complement the ensemble. Keep the skin dewy with a hint of your natural glow, define the eyes with a soft, smokey brown eye shadow and opt for a classy red pout to finish this look. Leave the hair open to cascade down naturally over one shoulder and make heads turn.

Looking gorgeous just got easy!!!

To office
Outfit:

You can wear your short evening dress to office if you do not wish to carry change with you. Simply make it look more formal by throwing on a cape, crop jacket or blazer.

Makeup: Minimal works best when at work, so keep it simple with a good base for the skin to look fresh and add a hint of colour to your lips.

Hair: You can try an updo style, bun or even a power pony tail for work.

To party

Outfit: Simply remove the cape, crop jacket or blazer that you donned for the formal feel all day. Less accessories work better, so keep it to chimes, watch and a clutch purse.

Makeup: Upgrade your day makeup look with smoky eyes and glossy pout. You can highlight your cheekbones with a dash of blush and keep it sexy chic.

Hair: Pull down your hair and toss it on one side. Feel Wow as you look back into the mirror and go party!

Monday Magic Makeup

Look WoW
no makeup look
No Makeup

Makeup is like magic that can totally transform the way you feel on a Monday. But if you keep applying the same set of cosmetics in the ‘formula way’, then you would obviously not be able to experience the Wow. Get innovative and try out something interesting like a ‘No Makeup’ look with just 3 Maybelline products like I did.

Here’s how it works for a post-work outing:

radiance Maybelline New York Nudes Palette 2 colour show orange icon# I first applied Maybelline BB cream – Clear Glow – 02 Radiance on my face. I love the texture and the subtle, soft finish it has and makes the skin look flawless.

# Ever since I discovered The Nudes palette of eye shadows, it has become my ‘go to’ solution. I can use the shades of brown, beige and black to define my eyes in as many ways as I can imagine. As an add on, I groom my eyebrow with the tan brown colour and contour my face with the same. It’s a 3 way wonder product for me!

# Since I wanted to keep the lips soft, I opted for a hint coral with Color Show – Orange icon lipstick and felt picture perfect instantly!
