Last, to last weekend we were invited for a review at the newly opened, Sly Granny in Indranagar. Now, before I go ahead with the full review, let me tell you, that they had me at that name!

A quirky name and a quirkier decor with a touch of grunge, this place, is a ‘must-go-to’ destination for those, who enjoy the idea of theme restaurants. However, the decor is not the only thing, you’ll find yourself impressed with, they have some of the most delicious drinks and dishes on their menu. For instance, our favorite dish on the menu was the Hummus platter and the chicken sliders. I also loved their cocktails which had a tinge of berries and pineapple in them.

So if you are looking to visit a place this weekend in Bangalore, that’s nice, as well as different, I strongly recommend, you make your way to the very Sly Granny!

Hope you have as much fun there, as we did 🙂

Yesterday, I got to attend a very interesting event, the occasion was the launch of Nykaa PaintStix! If you’ve been following my blog, for long enough, you’d know that I am a complete makeup junkie, and I try to get my hands on, every newly launched makeup product. So obviously I was quite excited to attend this one!

The launch was lovely and had all the bloggers, busy painting with Nykaa Paint Stix! We also got to try various shades of the Paint Stix, from its diverse palette! From hot chilli orange to grunge brown, the palette includes colors that can be worn every day to the office, and some bold ones, that can be worn to the parties. All in all, I loved their entire range!

Besides, I am going to put up a review of Nykaa PaintStix very soon! So stay tuned, and watch out this space for more! 😀

Southern Escapade – Weekend in Pondicherry!

Bangalore is a busy city, where you struggle with traffic, population, pollution and barely manage to get through each day. As a principle, I always take a break whenever it becomes too hectic, last month when Bangalore city started to take its toll on me, I slyly sneaked an escapade to a beautiful place called, Pondicherry.

I went to Pondicherry on a weekend and at stayed at one of the most beautiful resorts – Dune Ecovillage & Spa. Imagine a place, where you are all alone, with no one to disturb you, and you get to stay in the lap of nature quite literally! Where you can actually hear the sea waves crashing at the shore, in your room, where you are actually able to cut off from the whole world and spend your time in peace. Like me, if you like to just take a break from life and chill, then Dune Ecovillage & Spa is the place for you. It has its own private beach, where you can run miles, or just lie sunbathing at the shore. Be it their pool, or their private villas I just fell in love with the place!

After lazying around for a day at the resort, I finally went out to explore the town on the second day, and as expected, it was truly some experience! Even though a U.T and full of beaches, Pondi is nothing like Goa, where you see pubs lined up at every nook and corner. We explored quite a bit on our cute little scooter, (which we rented from the Merchant street at 1100/- for two days) before we discovered some of the most beautiful spots where you can go, grab a drink and just chill. One of such places is Le Club, this tiny little place, done up with pretty little, lights, will definitely remind you of Goa, and the legacy that Portuguese have left behind in terms of art and infrastructure. When here, don’t forget to treat yourself to a nice glass of wine, and some pizza, before go out exploring the town again. In the evening, it might be a good idea to explore other pubs like  Toxic and L’Aqua.

Last but not the least, do not forget to spend some time taking a quiet stroll by the Paradise beach. Beautiful and tranquil, you’ll fall in love with the beauty of the place!

The past month has been a roller coaster ride, with crazy amount of travel and absolutely no breather in between, which is why, the long silence on the blog! But the good part is, I am back and have tons to update the blog with!

Last month, I collaborated with designer label Dimple & Amrin for this shoot. What you see in the picture is a delicate lace dress that can be worn as a party as well as a casual dress. Light and pretty, it is just perfect for occassions when you want to play peek-a-boo. What I loved about the dress, was it’s tiny details and it’s soft and smooth fabric.

If you’ve been following my blog for long enough you’d know, I love the grungy-glam look, therefore no surprise that I styled the dress with minimal makeup and wavy hair, with  boots used as the only accessories.

Let me know your thoughts on the styling? Did you like it?

Some coolers, some wine and a great place to hang out maybe and you are set for a great evening! Anupama‘s new store launch was something similar which pretty much made our evening. The Wardrobe of a Nomad, was invited to the launch of designer Anupama Dayal‘s new store in Khan Market, Delhi.

It was not just the coolers at the launch that brought the relief from the heat, the collection at the store was no less than a breath of fresh air either. Anupama, who is known for her colorful quirky designs, this time around has brought the old Delhi’s Mughal vibe alive in the label’s signature color palette, the store echoes the brand’s ‘raison d’etre’ – revival of the ancient, almost forgotten hand printing techniques of India.

Need something to do over the weekend? I say make your way to Anupama’s store for some great shopping and that should make your evening!

Leather and Tribal Prints!

Winters is my favorite time of the year. You have so much liberty to experiment with clothes, accessories and everything else. You can hide all your love handles and muffins behind the layers of clothes (:p), no? So this, time I was back at home in Delhi, where it was freezing at 3 degrees, here’s the look I sported for an evening out.IMG_20150110_141617

Ring from Forever21

I think some prints, some bold color, and a pair of unique shoes is all it takes to turn even a most boring ensemble into a most interesting one. That’s exactly what became the inspiration for this look. All I have done is paired a blush color satin shirt, with tribal print leggings from Forever 21. Along with shoes from Steve Madden and accessories, an earcuff and midi-joint ring from Forever21. The leather jacket is from Zara. Like the look? What’s your winter style?

As a Stylist, nothing makes you more happy than a beautiful project where you get complete liberty to experiment with your creativity. Thanks to the owners of the Chocolate brand, and the photographer, this project is that one project where I got to do whatever I wanted to in terms of aesthetics and styling.

Besides, all my PR friends at Calvin Klien, FCUK, SBL, and ToniQ, made this project a reality, without whose help it wouldn’t have culminated into anything.

So here’s how it came out! Let me know, what you think of it? 🙂
