What I wore for #AIFWAW18

~As the day changes, the trend changes – four different trends for 4 different days of #AIFWAW18~

Four different days, 4 different outfits, 4 different styles and 4 different looks is how I would like to encapsulate my Fashion Week days. Fashion Week is not only what we see on the ramp but I love the fashion which we also see off the ramp. It was Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter’18 {#AIFWAW18} on the ramp but off the ramp we were all celebrating the arrival of summers experimenting with our clothes as well as accessories. I love to experiment during fashion week because that’s where trends are made. If you follow me on my Instagram, you would have got a glimpse of what I wore during the 4 days but it’s this article where you would catch more pictures to see my look and get the deets!

The Hillcart Tales for the Tea aficionados

In India, we love our tea. Infact, a few days back while browsing one of the social media sites, I saw a creative which said “Tea is the energy drink of India”. This got me thinking and I had no reason to disagree with the statement.

Everyone loves drinking their favourite cup of tea be it green or black. However, tea is not just restricted to these. Now, there are also exotic blends that leave you happy with every sip you drink and refresh you with their taste & aromas. The Hillcart Tales is one such brand founded by Ashutosh Ghosh who has an eye for the finest blends and deep love for tea leaves. Continue Reading

Motherhood- a bliss with big responsibilities

Motherhood is no less than a blessing for a lady. My life completely changed after giving birth to Kiara. It is a bliss yet it comes with great responsibilities. Being a client servicing professional with an Advertising agency is a tedious task for a young woman who has recently become a mom. Late evening meetings, lengthy presentations, and sharp skills to make creative team understand client’s brief requires lots of patience and positive temperament. I really struggle hard with time investment for my little angel’s upbringing. It is tough to maintain a right balance between career and motherhood but what I am doing today is for my child’s better upbringing. Just after giving birth to Kiara, I was surrounded by a lot of curiosity raised by my relatives and friends that how am I going to cope-up with my career and the journey of motherhood. To bargain between the two was very difficult, one being the dream with which I have been raised up all my life and the other being my daughter, the most important part of my life. But I was very certain that I am not going to compromise in any circumstance whatsoever when comes to my child’s bright future and would like to give her the best amenities and facilities from her initial upbringing stage itself.

Home Loan EMI vs a monthly rental

However, their parents stayed in a different city and the new couple had to find a house for themselves in Delhi where both of them were working. They looked at a variety of options in the Delhi as well as NCR but they realised that the rentals were really high. Paying a heavy rent every month was not what they would ideally want to do but the solution they came up with was even better. They thought of an investment, not in shares or bonds but in their own house. Isn’t that a great idea? Instead of a rent, they chose to pay an EMI for their home loan. Continue Reading
