Online shopping has made our life so comfortable that we hardly wait a minute to make the next purchase. I have myself bought almost everything online right from smartphones to books to dresses to tops and skirts. However, my newfound love on the Internet has been ethnic wear. This is the time when we have festivals in full swing followed by weddings and that’s when you need to be on point with your ethnic wear. That’s where your search for everything glamorous and perfect begins. And as is the norm for females, we are spoilt for choices!
Planning a nice hearty lunch or dinner? The real challenge is deciding the place which has something for everyone’s liking? Someone in your family wants Indian while someone else wants Mexican? Sounds familiar? Don’t worry, Team ChicLifeByte has the perfect solution for you.
Flluid in Mosaic Hotels, Noida is where my dining woes came to an end. We had already experience the hospitality of Mosaic Hotels Mussoorie and had no doubt that Mosaic Noida would also stand true to its name. Flluid is the place where popular Western, Indian and Oriental dishes are blended together to create fusion experiments which taste heavenly.
ChicLifeByte told you about the wonderful stay and hospitality of Ranjit’s SVAASA: A Heritage Boutique Spa Haveli at Amritsar. The ancestral property was built 200 years ago by Ratan Chand Mehra, a prominent person of his time. He had contributed to the society by opening up blind schools, gaushala, a family mandir as well as a hospital for TB, all of which are running till date. Ratan Chand Mehra was a recipient of Order of the British Empire (OBE) title and this house was actually a guesthouse for the Britishers. Retaining the original heritage, the place was refurbished. However, special things were retained which include 18 inch thick walls, there is mud inside the ceiling which helps in insulation, bricks are nanakshati (special bricks packed with mud, no cement is used in walls).
Nida Mahmood, the master creator of unique prints who is popularly known as the Queen of Kitsch presented her collection in collaboration with Deivee, an active lifestyle brand from India founded by Milind Soman and Darshan M at the Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018 in association with Nexa. Fashion, graphics, art, creativeness, film, installation, interiors are Nida’s main forte and she presented an atheleisure and sporty collection inspired by the four zones of India, East- ikat (from Orissa), West- indigo printing & dyeing (from Gujarat/Rajasthan), North- rich Banarasi brocades (Mughal patterns of delicate flowers and leaves on delicate creepers), South- Uppada and Narayanpet sarees (inspired by stripes & colour blocking).
With the upcoming festive season, we don’t want to wear the usual. Say no to the usual silhouettes and colours because what I am gonna show you is what will make you the centre of attraction whether it’s a card party or a brunch. DOUS, a brand for high-end women pret wear is termed as finesse, sober, sedate, royal, luxury, obsolete and grand. Their collection is elegant adding the perfect glam quotient required. I picked up three different outfits recently from DOUS which could be worn on different occasions.
Holidays for me is not about staying back in my city and sleeping but it’s about exploring a new world all together. Yes, travel is one thing I can never have enough of! Whether it’s to beat the city heat or to chill at an exotic location or just to take a break from my mundane life.
It’s finally time to select my next travel destination. Yes, I have a big wish list according to different zones for different period. Thinking of my next destination, I am going to hit is South India. South India is one zone which I haven’t explored much, though I have travelled to Hyderabad for work and Kerala for a FAM trip, my next destination would have be beautiful South India. While I was doing my research online, I zeroed down upon Coorg known as the Scotland of India.
It’s festive time and everyone wants to dress their best and look ravishing. While the right outfits and right make-up is important, its equally important to have naturally beautiful skin. One important festival is Karvachauth where married women fast the whole day for the long age of their husband. I love the traditions but its important that the women pamper themselves as well. However, during this time the beauty salons are full of clients as they want to look and dress the best on this auspicious festival. To ease this problem, VLCC Personal Care’s Gold Facial Kit comes handy which gives instant luminous and radiant skin and can be done at the convenience of your home saving a lot of time. The kit which is beautifully packed and completely professional comes with Comfrey Cleanser cum Toner, Gold Scrub, Gold Gel, Gold Cream, Gold Peel off Mask and a post facial Oil Free Moisturising Gel with SPF 15 to be used as a top up after the facial is done.
I think sometimes when you want attention you can wear sunglasses and people are like “Who is that?” – Katerina Graham
Yes, I am a big believer of this quote. Like we have different outfits for different days, we can’t do without one fashion accessory that can make you even more chic. We swear by its basic function and it rests on our face making us look even more glam. Yes, I am talking about sunglasses which not only come in different shapes and sizes but even different colours and prints giving us a wide variety to match it for different occasions and outfits. While we have different places where we pick up sunglasses from but for me the most sought after place for buying Smart Designs of Sunglasses for Women is Titan Eyeplus. Titan is obviously one of the most trusted brands and Titan Eyeplus is a portal that offers some of the best brands for buying sunglasses for women, including Titan, Rayban and Fastrack, available in power as well. Just look at the wide range available here and you will be spoilt for choice.
A mobile phone is a gadget which we are heavily dependent on. Even if we leave it for a minute, our hands itch! Whether it’s for making calls, messaging/chatting, playing a game, clicking a selfie or making use of our mobile internet for an array of things- checking movie schedule, booking a flight, searching something or just navigation…the list can go on and on and on. While there are a numerous things we do with our mobile phone each day, unfortunately most of the above things require a lot of battery. My heart skips a beat everytime my phone has less than 20 percent of battery especially when we really need the functions of our favourite device. We all know how it comes handy in every scenario especially when we are waiting for a meeting to begin or we are bored at work. Sometimes when I want to refresh my mind I just sit in the open air and play my favourite game or speak to a loved one. Mobile phone is the first thing we check when we get up and the last thing before we retire for the day. Whether it is setting the alarm or checking a message, it’s a device that comes handy.
A few days of bliss is what all of us wish for and this time it was my trip to the holy city Amritsar that I was looking forward to. Well, I have been to Amritsar before but this time it was special because I was staying at Ranjit’s SVAASA, a Heritage Boutique Spa Haveli. The 250-year-old British Colonial Haveli of the Rai Bahadur Rattan Chand family has housed royalty and eminent personalities of all lineages.
