July is on the brink and OPPO surprises us with their new member of the family that is OPPO A37. It is a new budget phone with a range of 11,990 INR and it goes on sale on July 1 2016. So do I have your attention now! Good! Let’s begin with, its full review:

DESIGN

Following in the steps OPPO’s flagship F1 PLUS the design on A37 is very similar with the metal casing body and arc edge screen. What I feel great about this one is, it is a budget phone, but it feels so premium compared to other budget phones in its class and range. With 5 inch HD IPS display and pixel density of 294ppi (pixel per inch), the phone is pretty handy and ergonomic for people with small hands, like me!

Another thing that I love here is its weight, which is 136gms and I love it because we use our phones constantly and the lighter the phone is, the longer it serves in its productivity. I hate when companies announce their budget phones and they give a bulky brick in your hands. I’m glad to see that companies like OPPO gives equal attention to its flagship and budget phone design and aesthetics. The phone comes with Corning gorilla glass 4, so it can take few heavy scratches.

CAMERA

OPPO really focuses on camera and this phone’s camera is no different, with 8 mega pixel rear camera, LED flash. With F/2.2 Aperture you can take stunning photos in the day and low light indoor or at night photos. Camera supports 1920/1080 video recording at 30fp. Also, you can have fun with time lapse video recording feature.

We know now OPPO’s beauty camera feature is. It’s among the best in the market and with beautify 4.0v you get 7 levels of intelligent beauty modes and 2 levels of different skin modes. The front camera comes with 5 mega pixels and a unique flash feature which emits a flash to brighten your face in low light using a light sensitive sensor which adjust the screen brightness perfectly to your face. With this phone, you can take great selfies regardless of the light conditions.

Here are some of the selfie shots:

STORAGE & HARDWARE

OPPO A37 is powered with Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz Quad core MSM 8916 PROCESSOR. RAM here is 2gb and inbuilt storage capacity of 16gb. For all those storage hungry, OPPO provides you with 128gb of expandable Rom. 4g enabled, the phone is packed with dual SIM both nano and micro SIM card slot.

On the software you’ve got Color OS 3.0 based on lollipop 5.1, as of now there isn’t any official statement regarding the regular updates to the software, but I use my OPPO F1 PLUS and I get regular Color OS updates so I think OPPO’s gonna take care of that with this phone too.

IMG-20160628-WA0005

To sum it all again the new OPPO A37 is a budget phone, but it looks and feels premium. It is packed with amazing features and it easily stands out among its competitors. The phone goes on sale on July 1, 2016. Look out for this one!  😉

The Summer Bride Look Book – Kalyan Jewellers

Hi Everyone!

Indian weddings mean only one thing i.e. elaborate celebration with at least 4-5 functions. And we all know ow much every bride wants to not only be the center of attention but also look glamorous. You girls may not believe this, but the best thing about summer weddings is that you get to be a modern bride with lots of options in what you want to wear. You can experiment with your style because you don’t have to worry about the gloomy weather that can ruin your dream wedding.

ShubhikaDavda the fashion and style expert for Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers is going to give style tips for a summer wedding. You can use these easy breezy bridal styles so you are the center of attention at your wedding. You can see the video here:

The Welcome Lunch Look-

For your welcome lunch, opt for a pre-stitched saree. Keep the colour of this outfit cool-hue such as mint green, ivory or dusky rose. This off-beat outfit will not only leave people turning their heads but also set the tone for your upcoming stylish outfits.

Team this outfit with only one statement accessory piece, keep your make-up minimal and you are good to go!

The Mehendi Look-

This function is the first of many where you step out as the new bride. Shubhika always suggests to the bride-to-be to transit their look from a fun girl one to a gorgeous glowing bride. Taking this advice, opt for a fun half-lehenga with embellishments, a belt and even pockets! To complete this look all you need are pretty chandbalis, and you are all set to show off your mehendi.

1111

Sangeet Night Look-

The Sangeet Night is all about the music, dancing and having fun. Opt for a lightweight lehenga so you can dance all night long and enjoy yourself. Pair it up with jhumkas and a big cocktail ring.

11111

Reception Look-

Skip the traditional reds and golds for orange, blue or pink with a sprinkling of embellishments or sequins will give it a very princess kind of look. Complete this look with delicate diamond jewellery. This gown will grab so many eyes for sure.

This one is one of my favourite look till now. I love how the pairing came out and it looked absolutely stunning. I wore this look for a get together and I really got so many complements. You can wear this look for a day get together or a casual party.

Lately, I have been obsessed with midis and sleeveless trench coats. Where ever I go for shopping, I first hunt for these two. I have recently made a trench out of a fabric which came out amazing and soon coming up on the blog. The last time I wore a trench for an event and when I got out of the event, a lady complimented me saying I’m wearing the best outfit in here. I would love to know,  which style you are following currently?

That One Person Who #NeverLetsYouDown

That One Person Who #NeverLetsYouDown

Hi Everyone!

When I got to know about the campaign of LAVA Mobiles and their tag #NeverLetsYouDown, I decided to share a story with you all about a person who is very close to me and is one of the people for whom what I’m today as a person and whatever I have achieved in life. That person is exactly the true definition of the LAVA Mobile’s tag line in my life. I’m sure you all share that incredible bond with that one person whom you can call your friend, your mentor, your problem solver and a very strong reason you are on this planet. Yes, I’m talking about Mothers. I share the same bond with my mother too, in fact more than that!

She is my strength and my advisor in life. She always does things what is best for me. Make sure that I’m happy no matter what. She never says no to me, be it odd timing shopping or making food for me in the middle of the night. No matter if she had food or not, she always makes sure that I eat properly.

IMG_7371-1(1)

I’m feeling so overwhelmed writing this post right now and there are lots of things I want to share. Last year I lost my dad and I was in a very bad state of mind. I never shared how I felt publicly because I thought no one will understand and will think I’m sharing it to gain sympathy. My mom was equally in that state, but she made sure that I’m fine and helped me fight that situation. I miss my dad a lot, but when I look at my mom, I feel she is the one person who made me the person I’m today and I have to live for her and be happy.

IMG-20160607-WA0004-1

As a child, I was very introvert and had very few friends. She always played with me and never let me feel alone. She calmly listens to all my nonsense of what happened in school and bare all my tantrums. She helped me complete my homework and sometimes does it all. I remember I had typhoid fever and I use to hold her tight while sleeping. Due to that infection, she got infected with bronchitis, but she took care of me rather than thinking of her own. I think god has made mothers like that. So pure and so strong!

She is always there for me on all my ups and downs in life. Give me strength when I feel week and dishearten. She sometimes fights, but love me the next moment. Mom! I really don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you for being my mother and loving me so purely.
LAVA Mobiles symbolize the qualities of trust, reliability and strength similar to my mom in my life. There is no one who can replace the place of my mother from my life and she is truly an angle in my life. I cannot hide anything from her, share every small detail of my life with her. I love you mom, I dedicate this post to you. Check out more details about LAVA Mobile http://www.lavamobiles.com/

IN CONVERSATION WITH THE WELLA PROFESSIONALS GLOBAL AMBASSADOR – PATRICK CAMERON

IN CONVERSATION WITH THE WELLA PROFESSIONALS GLOBAL AMBASSADOR – PATRICK CAMERON

Hi Everyone!

If you guys follow us on snap chat or any other social handles then you have known that I have recently met the Wella Professionals – Global Ambassador Patrick Cameron and learnt lots of interesting facts about hair styling, current trends and looks. Who does not love going out with amazing looking hairstyles which are easy to create and maintain. We sometimes think that doing a hairstyle will take a lot of work and effort, but Patrick showed us it’s all a myth and you can create cute and easy hairstyles in minutes.

DSC_0476-1 Well Image 2 DSC_0482-1

Wella Professionals brought Patrick to educate 1800 hair stylists across three cities in India through grand shows where he exposed them to the various possibilities of hair styling and his association with Wella. He believes that hair styling is an expression of individuality and thus cannot take a back seat. He spent his last 25 years as the global ambassador for Wella and travelled the world sharing and presenting his show stopping hair styles.

DSC_0510-1 DSC_0494-1

During the event Patrick Cameron showcased his Modern Vintage collection from the Wella Professionals portfolio. Modern vintage takes its inspiration from the 1960’s because this era has an enduring influence in fashion, in the balance and the proportions of the way hair is dressed. We had detailed Q&A session with him talking about how to dress our hair and he showed us some live demos. The first hair style he did on a fellow blogger showing us how easily someone can dress up their hair for a lazy day or someone who does not like to style a lot. I did snap chatted the whole process of creating that style.

Then he asked me to volunteer for his next hairstyle which was a Modern Chic hairstyle from one of his Modern Vintage collections. The hairstyle was a messy classic bun where he used lots of Bobby pins and hairspay to hold the look. When he finished the look I was awestruck with the style that he created on my hair. Frankly, I can wear that look with anything.

The third look he created on a fellow blogger showcasing how you can enhance your features with an updo messy bun. Certain haircare and styling tips that we got from  Patrick Cameron:

World Interior DAY WITH Asian Paints

World Interior DAY WITH Asian Paints

Hi Everyone !

We got invited to Asian paints interior design & decor shop at Connaught place where the Colour Store celebrated with a unique movies-inspired workshop on interiors for consumers.You’ve got only three of these shops in India which are based in Mumbai, Kolkata, and heart of the country Delhi. And our host for the event was very brilliantFilm Production Designer, Shruti Gupte.

To those who are unfamiliar with Shruti Gupte’s work, may be familiar with film names like “Taare Zameen Par”, “Aisha”, “ Khoobsurat”. Yup…. Ring a bell!!!…. . Shruti Gupte was the production designer on the titles mentioned just now. She gave us the detail tutorial on how one should perceive design and embrace it instead of playing safe with it.

4

In the entire session I could clearly see in her work how everything complements each other. To boil it down, it was clear picture of how “FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION”. We got a detail walk through of the entire design & decor of taare zameen par, Aisha and Khoobsurat where we learnt a sweet rhythmic transition of the taste and preference of the middle class apartment to niche bungalow to royal palaces. Seeing all of this it reminded of the tagline of Asian paints which is “Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai” and it lands spot on here, every wall in our home speaks about the people that it comforts. Don’t believe me! Alright then, here’s a cool observation activity you can do next time you visit your friend or relative’s home.

See how the bed cover complements the wall prints. Are the number of pillows same and placed on the either side of the bed or lying all together making one comfortable bed sofa, it will give you a good idea about the person on how he uses his comfort space, and question yourself does he keeps things symmetrical symbolizing balance or does it favour a place making it a centre for comfort. You can try this activity in any room of the house be it kitchen, dining hall, guest room, study desk… Get it Now… Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai.

That’s why Asian Paints brings you the best design and decor consultant team which will sit with you and guide you getting your dream place done in a brilliantly smart way so that you don’t end up wasting your money on hunches. You have your own design or want something that you saw in a movie and want the similar result in your home. Well, then Asian paint team will sit with you and will provide you with layout design which will help you get a clear idea of how your home will look like. The entire team at Asian Paints are veteran at their work. So next time you have an idea, drop in at Asian Paints’ Color Store, CP and see the magic happen before your eyes.
