IIJW 2015: My Day Out!

Hey lovely readers! ❤

Tonight I want to share my experience at the India International Jewellery Week 2015 with you guys 😀
I attended Day 2 of the IIJW at Grand Hyatt (Mumbai) and had a great time! This is how I looked!

I attended the show presented by the Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery (IIGJ) that showcased collections by Rahul Luthra, Cherry Sahni, Anushka Singhal and Rachna Gupta. Many designs caught my eye!

I was bewitched by Cherry Sahni’s exquisite collection! It was all about diamonds and TASSELS! It was amazing to see gems and pearls tied into tassels – so unique! B-)

The outfits were all denim! Denim and diamonds make an intriguing combination, don’t they? 😀

Aditi Arya, the ruling Miss India World was the showstopper for Cherry. She looked like a young goddess in an unconventional boho-chic denim bustier-style leotard and a sheer lace skirt, coupled with ultra high brown leather heels ^^’

After the show, I caught up with Cherry and her showstopper. Both ladies were gracious enough and the chat was effortless!

Aditi’s favourite thing about the collection was its perfectly harmonious blend of modern and traditional. Her denim-lace outfit definitely revealed both the chic coolness and grace that a women embodies, she felt.

As for Cherry, she couldn’t be happier about her showstopper! According to her, Aditi symbolises precisely what her collection puts forth – a globetrotter and a free spirit who is in touch with her roots.

My First Bloggers’ Meet!

Hey guys! ❤

This month, I was a part of an exciting bloggers’ meet organised by Triveni Ethnics. I was ecstatic to be there! The fact that Triveni is Surat-based and they were in Mumbai only for a day, and had organised this meet with select bloggers is what made it even more special for me! 😀

We were warmly welcomed by Arvind who introduced us with the Triveni brand, their history and their specialties. Us girls had a great time draping each other and choosing sarees to take home!

Look how happy I am 😛

I went through the catalogues and liked what I saw!

IMG_20150711_181241355IMG_20150711_181047290IMG_20150711_181223888

So here’s what I gathered from the meet:

  1. They are based in Surat. You can visit them at 1018-1025, First Floor, Anupam Textile Market,Ring Road, Surat to look at their entire EXTENSIVE collection!
  2. And those who cannot make it to Surat, you should check out the Triveni website! It has a huge range of ethnic wear from sarees and suits to lehengas and kurti. They also stock jewellery and accessories!
  3. They have something for the men and kids as well! 😉
  4. They take custom orders. Anything from a pre-pleated saree to a celebrity outfit request, they do it all!
  5. They are constantly innovating. They showed us fabrics and blends which I had never seen before! Can you imagine shiny crepe?? I saw a beautiful patch of grey crepe, with a golden tone on one side ❤
  6. They are very affordable! I checked out their wedding catalogue, expecting the lehengas to cost 70-80k INR easily cuz they are THAT beautiful. But brace yourselves – the semi-stitched lehengas cost a jaw-dropping 8-10k INR only! Honestly, I haven’t been able to stop myself from recommending Triveni to all prospective brides I’ve met lately!

I promise to be back with a detailed post with the saree that I received. I’m still in the process of getting the blouse top stitched :/

But I’m SUPER excited about it! Can’t wait! 😉

Here’s a selfie from the workshop!

Until next time, love from Shruti ❤

Ps. If anybody is curious, I’m wearing product number 86001. You can find it on the Triveni website 🙂

Boho Chic Summer Look

Hi readers! ❤

Today I’m featuring one of my favourite pieces of garment this summer! This one was long due! Take a look at this monochrome printed kimono with fringe detail at the hemline. This is a thrifted item 😀

IMG_20150608_135053475

I love how this kimono is light and airy, making it perfect for this season! The fringes make it so much fun! And there are multiple ways to wear it. I’ll tell you some ways today 🙂

I opted for wrist accessories and a necklace, completely foregoing earrings. I completed the look with a pair of black leather espadrilles 🙂

IMG_20150530_160059478_HDR - Copy IMG_20150530_162146893

You can opt for full coverage, by pairing the kimono with leggings..

IMG_20150530_160059478_HDR

OR create a playful summer look, as I did with the shorts 😎

IMG_0098

Both outfits are quite versatile! The full black coverage is great for a formal meeting or simply, to feel cosy on a rainy day out 😉

The pure white look with the white linen shorts is perfect for everything, from hanging out at the mall and even going to the beach!

Quick Tips:

1. You can even pair this kimono with your bikini or a swim suit and it will look perfect!

2. You can also wear a belt or cord with the kimono, to add definition to your waist. Or you can just let it flow and enjoy the breeziness like me! ❤

So what do you think about kimonos? Would you like to try one, or do you love them already? 😀

BeautyWish May Box – Holiday Primp!

Hey guys! ^^’

Today I’ll be giving you the details of this month’s BeautyWish Box by The Nature’s Co. I thought my Monday will be a boring one, as I sat with my bowl of cereal. But soon, I was surprised by this box! The May box is the Holiday Primp box, and comes in a super cute travel bag! I got a pink one 🙂

BeautyWish

It is quite spacious for a travel pouch, with four little pockets AND an elastic band for holding your gloss, makeup brushes, lipsticks etc. It also has a little vanity mirror inside!

IMG_20150601_141632775

Upon unzipping the bag, I found that there were products individually bubble wrapped to prevent leakage. I really appreciate this thoughtfulness and efficiency, especially cuz one of the products had leaked a little but didn’t make a mess! 😀

IMG_20150601_135746456 IMG_20150601_140051087

In all, there were SIX products. Let me list them for you 🙂

IMG_20150601_142142018 IMG_20150601_142324907

For pampering my face, I received Cool Cucumber Face Wash (20ml) from Aquaspark. It has such a hydrating cucumber smell! Next is the Red and Green Tea Sun Screen Lotion (20ml) from Starrize. This lotion has a very mild fragrance.

IMG_20150601_141933456

For my body, I got the Sunflower Body Wash (250ml) from Starrize. It has a mild floral scent that I’m really liking! Next is the Lemon Peel Body Lotion (30ml), also from Starrize. It has a very refreshing, bitter lemon peel fragrance 😀

IMG_20150601_184737257

For my hair, I have got the Hibiscus Anti-Dandruff Hair Cleanser / Shampoo (30ml) and the Vitamin Hair Conditioner (30ml), both from Foressence. The shampoo has a very herbal, slightly hibiscus-y smell, and the conditioner has a mild, pleasant smell.

IMG_20150601_185144538

And the last thing, a 35% discount coupon! This can be used for purchasing the full sizes of the products that I received in the box! 😀

IMG_20150601_190630687

So these were the items in my BeautyWish box. Hope you liked them as much as I do! A detailed post with reviews of these products will be up soon, as I use them throughout the week! 😀

Cuffs for All Seasons!

Hello dear readers! 🙂

I want to share my recent purchase with you. I’m so happy with these!

IMG_20150522_231524

GOLD WRIST CUFFS!

I took a geometric one (top), and a twirly, intricate one (down). These cuffs are SO versatile! You can pair them up with literally anything and everything! Maxi dress, crop top, high rise skirt, skater skirt, palazzo pants and more! Just pop a cuff on, and your wrist game amps up instantly 😉

Awesome, right? 😎

What I LOVE about these cuffs is that they don’t have a saturated gold colour. They’re almost a mix of gold and rose gold, which gives them a delicate gold colour.

So what do you think? Do you like cuffs? Would you like to try wearing them? ❤
