First drops of innocence, breeze of fresh air, the burst of the first glitter & candy-filled birthday balloon, rose picked from a nearby garden and pressed between the notebook pages, the very first music CD are saved on the ‘icloud’ of our memory. Amit Aggarwal’s Spring Summer’17 collection at the Amazon India Fashion Week was one such show drawing inspiration from his childhood memories. The line is a fusion of what India has to offer in the west- textiles and what industrialization has brought in- technology.
The Westin Gurgaon is one landmark that cannot be missed. I have always been attracted to this luxury hotel for its beautiful ambience and the world cuisines it offers across its diverse dining venues. This time was even more special because I was there to try apna desi Indian khana. Nah Nah I am not talking about Dal Roti or Butter Chicken but the desi Indian khana from South! Yes, The Westin Gurgaon was offering rich delectable cuisines from South India which were a part of the multi-cuisine buffet at Seasonal Tastes though for a limited time period only.
Vikas Khanna is definitely one of the most handsome & down to earth chefs from the ones I have met so far and when he is cooking, giving out his useful tips and joking with the audience, pun intended, you become more a fan watching him cook, laugh & spread more love and happiness.

A colourful & fun place is what I call Dhaba by Claridges! Opened in November 2013 in Saket with all the signature dishes and quality ingredients, this unique dining experience comes straight from The Claridges.

The menu at Dhaba By Claridges is divided into 3 parts- Tawa, Tandoor & Patila curated by the chef on board Ravi Saxena, the delicacies equaling five star hotels & dishes like Kanastari Baingan, Tiffin Chicken, Balti meat, their unique Dhaba ki Roti or Phirni. Ofcourse don’t miss the Paan station outside and elements like nalka chandeliers, nimbu-mirchi lights, vintage Bollywood posters, truck elements- all rustic & unique interiors lending a more colourful & lively experience to the whole dining charm.
Imagine a Diwali full of lights, diyas, candles, rangoli, crackers, and fresh air. While the first 5 things is what we experience every year but the last thing is something that is difficult to manage. We love the festivities and crackers but what we don’t realize is how it’s harming people who have chest congestion or asthma. This time was even worse for most of us because of the smog. According to the World Health Organization, air pollution causes more than 3 million deaths a year and India is among the two most-polluted countries in the world. The Ministry for Science and Technology in India described the air quality after the festival celebrations in Delhi as “severe”.

Eves, as I would like to describe the lovely creature called women, are always struggling and juggling for time. Don’t we at times wish for a genie or fairy godmother to just come and spread her magic wand so that our daily chores are done within hassle free?
Balancing work and home gives us little time for ourselves and it’s not easy to manage everything in a little time called weekends! At times we just delay things, could be because of time crunch or sheer laziness…. especially when it comes to salon work! Be it as simple as waxing, threading or facial, the trip to the salon is one of the laziest decisions!
I am sure you are no alien to the concept of Junkyard Café. Team ChicLifeByte did tell you about the outlets located in Connaught Place and Rajouri Garden. This time its good news for South Delhiites as the latest funk place is now open at Saket. Junkyard Café made out of junk but I would call it funk junk coz its so funky that no one can figure out that its made of junk!
