White is the color of purity, innocence and simplicity. This color represents positivity also. Keeping these things in mind, I thought why not to give it a try. As I said earlier, I love colors. So here are some pictures where I dressed myself up in white.
You can also give it a try in this summer.
So these are some outfits that I am trying these days..
The best friend of summer is kurti…comfortable, elegant, stylish, smart and suitable for all ages. There are so many types of kurtis available in the market…Printed kurti, long straight kurti, pakistani kurti, shirt kurti and so on and on. In terms of sleeves also there are wide range of varieties…full sleeve, quarter sleeve, puff sleeve etc.
You can team up kurtis with denims, leggings, palazzos. Patiala pants and with which you are comfortable with.
Cotton is the best option for summer. I prefer quarter sleeve kurtis the most as it covers the maximum portion of my hand protecting it from sunburn and at the same time I can decorate my wrist with bracelets or wrist watches.
Apart from going to office or college, you can also try it to attend any kinds of party or occasion.
If you want to attend any occasion in summer and you want to dress simple yet gorgeous then you can team up your kurti with a beautiful ear rings which will complement your dress and highlight your eyes and pick a suitable shoe and you are ready to rock…Simple yet stylish.
Here are some of the pictures where I dressed myself in simple kurti and with some simple accessories.
Today’s post is about how to take care of your skin after Holi.
Don’t take stress to remove the colors from your skin then and there.
Use the cold water I mean normal temperature water.
At first wash your face with simple water. Don’t rub or scrub your skin too much.
Now apply face wash and gently massage it on your skin.
After washing your skin wipe it properly and then apply coconut oil or baby oil. Massage the oil gently leaves it for 5-10 minutes. Now take a cotton ball and remove the oil with this.
Make a paste with gram flour, curd and lemon juice. Apply on your skin and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Then wash your face. You can all make a paste of gram flour and milk creme.
Now apply a good quantity of moisturizer on your skin.
Don’t go for a facial for one week.
FOR BODY… apply shower gel or herbal soap. After wash you can apply coconut oil or body oil.
FOR HAIR… wash your hair with water. Then apply herbal or mild shampoo on the scalp and massage it and leave it for 2-3 minutes and wash it. Then apply a good conditioner.
FOR LIPS… take one tea spoon of milk add 10-12 drops of lemon juice and 4-5 drops of honey. Apply this on your lips. Leave it for 10 minutes. You will get soft rosy lips.
Glass of milk
If still some color remain don’t worry it will be removed after your every shower. It will indicate that you have enjoyed the Holi to your heart’s content. If you will follow my previous suggestions “Be Aware before Holi” then the colors will not take much time to remove.
If you want to share some of your suggestions, Please do.
It seems that Nature is busy to make preparations. The Palas (Dhak/Bengal Kino) flowers make us aware that the “Festival of Color” is approaching. I am very excited as I love this festival so much. Holi or Basant Utsav is famous in Hindu religion also. Holi is celebrated all over India with great enthusiasm…in Braj region, Gujrat, Assam, Nepal and so on. One such place which is popular for the celebration of Holi is Shantiniketan in Bolpur. Shantiniketan is a town in the district of Birbhum, west bengal where Rabindranath Tagore set up Viswabharati Unversity. The place is famous for its cultural heritage.
Once I had the opportunity to see Holi or Basant Utsav in Shantiniketan. Three years ago when I decided to visit Shantiniketan in Holi, one of my friends who lived in Bolpur at that time suggested me how to dress up for the festival.
Today I just want to share with you those things with some of my pictures..
Clad yourself with yellow color saree. Previously I thought that only the students of Viswas bharati clad themselves with yellow colored saree but I was wrong. Even the visitors wear the yellow color saree.
Decorate your hair with the garland made of Dhak or Palas flowers. If the palas is not available in your surroundings then try the artificial gajra available in cosmetic shops. The Palas and Abira are available at the entrance of Viswa Bharati.
You can wear some traditional ornaments. Dokra and white metal jewellery are some traditional ornaments popular in Bolpur or you can put on any ornaments that complement your dress.
This does not mean that if you do not dress up yourself in this way then there will be no entry zone for you. 🙂 :).
If you have not visited Shantiniketan in Holi, visit the place once. You will surely enjoy the tradition.
Nail art has now become a top most trend in the field of fashion. There are so many designs…simple, classy, artistic and so one. There are so many color options also. Even 10-15 years ago we could not think about such a wide range of colors. When I was a child I remembered the most popular color at that time was red. In a nutshell there are so many options to make your nails beautiful. The first and the foremost thing is to take care of your nails properly. If your nails are too fragile to break easily, then no nail design or color can make it attractive.
Today I am going to share with you some natural ways to take care of your nails..
As you all know it is very important to keep your nails clean. So dip your nails in lukewarm water. You can add baby shampoo in the water.
Next scrub the nails with a soft scrubber or tooth brush once in a week.
Apply a good moisturizer or olive oil and massage it gently
To get rid of fragile nails take a lemon juice in a bowl. Dip the cotton ball in the juice and apply on your nails. This is a great remedy not only for fragile nails but it also provides shine in nails. You can also rub a piece of lemon on your nails.
Use a good nail polish remover.
Last but not the least takes food that contains calcium and iron.
So enjoy the nail art, several colors and whatever you want to make your nails attractive.
Here i am sharing with you some colors that i have tried in last few days ….
I love colors and love to paint my nails also..what about you guys????
Mehendi is an essential part in the occasion of marriage ceremony. There is a ritual to do mehendi in the hands of would -be bride (in some traditions in the hands of the groom also). But it is not done just only to decorate the hands of the bride or to make the bride more beautiful. It has some valid reasons behind it. Various mehendi cons are now available in the market. Earlier at the time of my grandmother, they used to collect the henna leaves, made paste of it and applied it with a stick on their hands. Cons made it easy for us. It is often said that the color of mehendi indicates how much your partner is in love with you. This concept upset me much because I never got that color. Later one of my students suggested me to apply lemon juice and sugar when the mehendi will begin to dry and also not to wash it with water, just wipe it with a tissue or can apply oil. I followed the instructions and finally succeeded.
I have said that applying mehendi has some valid reasons. So here they are… first of all it helps to reduce stress. There are so many thoughts that enclosed our mind at the time of marriage…. Nervousness of entering into a new world, to be far away from our near and dear ones and so many feelings. So we need something that helps us to make our mind cool and Mehdi is there for us. Secondly it has cooling effect. When you will apply it, you will definitely feel a cooling sensation. It also consists antiseptic properties. For all these I love and respect Indian culture so much.
This time I also tried to draw some designs on my hand. No! no! I am not getting married. I am just trying this. But I am very bad in drawing. So I have drawn a simple design and one of my students drawn some beautiful designs…here they are….
In my previous post I have mentioned about Bengali Style Saree draping. Previously Bengalis used to drape sari in this way. Rabindranath Tagore’s elder brother Satyendranath Tgore’s wife Jnanadanandini Devi brought the modern way to wear saree. She may be called the pioneer of making style with saree. With the advancement of time we experiment different types of style… for party, to look slim and whatever the situation demands.
I love to wear sari. It is said that nothing makes a woman look more beautiful like a saree does.
I have opted this style as it is much easier. I named this style “Mein aanchal to lehera du par barsaat na ho jaye”. It is not too hard just left the pallu open and pin it tightly with the blouse. This is normal yet stylish party wear look and I think the smart look.
I call it “didi tera devar deewana” style. It is generally called Gujrati style. As my saree is heavy enough, I may look fattyJJ that’s why I opted this style. I think this style is very comfortable as you have not to bother about your pallu.
This time I made my style with Mekhela Saree. It is the traditional Assamese dress, worn by women irrespective of ages. I did pleats in pallu so that the lower portion of Mekhela can be seen properly.
Lastly I worn a dress which is known as Gopi dress and which I love so much. This is a beautiful dress. It is very easy to wear dress. It is available in wrapper and skirt style. Just wrap the wrapper or wear the skirt. You can make different styles with the dupatta also.
That’s all ladies for today. So feel good and you will look better and be simple as beauty depends on simplicity.
“Khulti zulfon ne sikhaye mausamo ko shayari”… it is one of the songs which I love very much.
Hair is considered an ornament for ladies. So it is advised by our grandmother and mother to take care of this ornament. But it is very difficult to keep hair beautiful in this age of pollution. I always try to make my hair lustrous and silky but the problem I faced at the time of applying shampoo is that my hair become sticky if I have to use shampoo daily for some reasons and my hair gradually begin to rough and to lose its natural beauty. So naturally I was experimenting with so many shampoos and as you all know the proverb “try again and again and you must succeed” so I also succeeded and at last get the GARNIER ULTRA BLENDS INTENSE SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER. Today I am going to share this with all of you.

I always prefer to open my hair. Not because that I want to sing the song “Mein zulfein toh bikhra du din mein raat na ho jaye”. I can’t sing this song as my hair is not long enough to create raat(night)JJ.i just don’t like to tie them. This shampoo helps me to maintain my style. Now I always keep my hair open without any fear and this is the best result I have got. My hair has now become soft and silky. Even if I have to shampoo my hair 3-4 days at a stretch it did not become sticky and oily. As the product claims that it repairs damaged hair, it is true and it totally helps me to repair my damaged hair. Most importantly it is paraben free. And last but not the least it is pocket friendly. I don’t use conditioner all the time as the shampoo fulfills my requirements This product has now made its place in my favorite list..
Yet searching. When I will get it I will definitely inform you.:)JJ
There is a popular saying that “life cannot be perfect but your hair can”…I am just trying this.
“Dola re dola re …..” this famous song from the movie Devdas is remarkable for the duo performance of Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit but I was mesmerized for the style of draping of the Saree
Saree..the traditional attire of Asian women has now become the fashion attire, the style statement around the world. It is said that a girl looks more beautiful, elegant and sensuous in saree. Today I am going to share with the Bengali style saree draping in which I recently clad myself in a function. Previously I had a notion that only married woman can drape like this but my mom laughed at my thought and told me that even a child draped the saree like this in ancient times. So without any hesitation I picked up the style.
I think half-half saree will be the best option for this kind of draping. It will be the best option for this kind of draping. It will be a fusion. Apart from half-half you can pick any kind of traditional saree like Dhakai, Kanjibharam or kind of silk or whatever you like and comfortable with.
HOW TO DRAPE
At first start to tuck the saree from the right side of the waist and gradually from the back come to the left side tucking properly then come to the front and tuck the saree across to the right side of the waist to the left side and then the reverse from left to right and repeat this twice. Now make pallu pleats, place the pallu on the left shoulder and pick up the end of pallu corner and bring the pallu corner from the right hand and placed in the right shoulder securing it with a pin.
Next I added kamarband or waist band which is also an ancient accessory used to keep the pleats properly but again now-a-day it has made its place in the field of fashion. Lastly I added a bindi, this time a red one which is a complement for this kind of dress.
So,look gracious,beautiful and elegant in this style.
