Treasured Trinkets | A Caratlane Collaboration

26.8.17


It's no secret. Your impeccably styled outfit will always need a couple of accessories to look fully complete because a cute necklace and a gorgeous pair of danglers can transform your good outfit into a terrific one. Some women pick their jewelry once their outfit is complete, while some pick their outfit based on their jewelry for the day, and that's exactly what for this collaboration with Caratlane. In the past, I zoomed past multiple phases; from an avid jewelry hoarder and collector (I used to match my earrings to my rings and my bracelets even when I was going for my tuition) to a statement junkie for the last few years which I've documented a lot here on the blog to a current minimalist where I barely wear anything around my neck or in my ears. For me, on a personal level, I think one piece of jewelry is fantastic and two pieces are still fine when it comes to venturing out of the house. Three pieces might just be a fail. That's why it's important to make sure your one or two pieces really hit that mark. I still find myself attracted to statement jewelry and love to sometimes add in the most minimal pieces every now and then. And that's what got me in love with Caratlane.

Indian Independence day themed drinks

15.8.17


What I've always found strange is the dry days India has when its time to celebrate. For me, a celebration always begins and ends with a toast and a drink in hand. So while alcohol stores and bars are shut on major national holidays, I've always rolled my eyes and had my drink at home instead. This year, as we complete 70 years of Independence, we came up with two themed drinks to commemorate the occasion.
