It is Diwali: turn down the noise and turn up the swag!

festive-looks-inspo

Diwali is an ever-changing festival. Once there were diyas and simple food, and then there were hardcore gambling parties and free-flowing booze. Today, Diwali has gone back to its traditional form: people are encouraging diyas instead of lights to conserve power; pataakas are frowned upon because of pollution. But, that don’t mean you can revamp your Diwali wardrobe to bring in full on fashion fireworks! …

#PyjamaReviews: The Burlap People

ScreenShot2016-08-22at2.43.33am

I discovered the Burlap People a few months ago on Instagram and the use of burlap for their designs caught my eye. I’d previously associated burlap with gunny sacks and love the idea of transforming this rugged and utilitarian fabric into aesthetically striking designs. Come time to invest in a daily use handbag; I knew I was going to give The Burlap People a whirl. …

Five erotic #instart accounts to get you through #HumpDay ;)

humpday cure feature

Yes, all puns intended. But, also, these artists and curators showcase some very beautiful illustrations – erotic or otherwise. There’s actually tons of talent on Instagram, but these are five of my favourites. I’m prescribing them to you as a #humpday cure, and I hope they work. Or, perhaps, inspire a little naughty side of you to come out… if it’s even been in hiding! 😉 …

These fun paintings of women giving zero f*cks are gorgeous!

Based in Atlanta and hailing from New Mexico, 28-year-old artist Monika Kim Garza’s work caught our eye on Instagram. The art is gorgeous, her technique is both reminiscent of classical masters, and distinctive for the way she chooses to portray women. The unapologetic attitude that her subjects exude and the fun colour palette she uses are utterly empowering and beautiful to gaze at. I spoke to Monika about her work in a …

Airports are emotional places. Long awaited reunions, sentimental goodbyes, excess baggage drama, flying anxieties. Throw in a few delayed flights and you have yourself a curse dictionary. I was at Bangalore airport last year during the Christmas season. All the flights were delayed because of the holiday rush. I found myself surrounded by a crowd of super anxious and agitated travellers. To add to that, the entire …

Mera joota hai Hindustani aka 7 Indian shoemakers we love!

Image-1-5

We’re nothing if not addicted to buying shoes. And we do not discriminate — from the bro-ed-out brogues to studly sandals to sky-high boots, we love them all. But, let’s be honest: we’ve all got the same shoes. Seriously, all of us: Nothing against Chuck Taylors or even the Gigi sandals a-la Sam Edelman (we are die-hard fans of both) but it’d be nice to …

RA 12_PP.JPG

Needles are a girl’s best friend By Antima Nahar Some people shudder at the thought of the slightest prick for a simple blood test. I used to be one of those people. But my dive into the deep blue sea of alternative therapy for Rheumatoid arthritis, about two and a half years ago, had me try acupuncture. The encounter turned into an acquaintance and very …
