The Fluid Fashion Trend: LIVA Bloggers Meet

The Fluid Fashion Trend: LIVA Bloggers Meet

Hi Everyone,

When you select an outfit, what do you see in that outfit? Of course the style, the fabric, the design and the make. If I say that there is one fabric brand which does all of the above and without knowing, we all are wearing their garment in our day to day life. Well, yes, I’m talking about the LIVA Fluid Fashion fabric who does it all. The garments which are available under the brands called Pantaloons, Solly, Park Avenue, W, People, 109’F, Code, etc. use LIVA fabrics to manufacture their garments.

I have recently done a Lookbook using the LIVA garments showing the BohoChic Look and pairing them in two different ways to create summer and winter looks. The fabrics are so fluid and adaptable to any season and look that it actually helped me create these different looks . I love when a fabric is breathable and can be paired with different other fabrics like leather, denims, cotton, etc.

As you all know that I have attended the Amazon India Fashion Week and LIVA was one of the sponsors. They also organized a cool blogger meet at the ground. Not only we got to meet our blogger friends, but also we got to meet the amazing team of LIVA who put so much effort in creating these superb fabrics. In the bloggers meet, they talked about the brand, its future goals. LIVA does not only manufacture fabrics, but it is a brand in itself. It creates future fashion trends and quality is their main focus. People are now well aware of LIVA as a brand and they are buying the garments looking at the tag of LIVA Fuild Fashion Fabric.

At the meet, we also got the opportunity to meet three lovely ladies – Isha Rajpal who is a fashion designer, Shyamlee Karla who is a popular ramp choreographer and Riddhima Kapoor (Ranbir Kapoor’s sister) who has started her own jewellery line. These ladies are amazing human beings, married with kids and doing so well in their field of expertise. They gave us tips on fashion, health, how to handle work pressure and how to be healthy. We were just having fun when the president of FDCI – Mr. Sunil Sethi walked in and we enjoyed his company. He shared his experience with LIVA and how he got his favorite shirt made out of LIVA fabric. We had super fun time with the guests knowing about their life, their associations with LIVA and what they think about the brand in person.

All the bloggers present at the LIVA event created their looks with the LIVA outfits. Here is my look from the day 3 of the Amazon India Fashion Week wearing LIVA Fluid Fashion.

Hi Everyone!

I’m getting ready for the Day 3 of the Amazon India Fashion Week and I wanted to post what I wore for Day 2 quickly for all of you. It gets hectic when you have to run between office and Fashion Week but it is super fun and so many things to learn.

img_8138-1

I wore this Miway Maxi dress for the Day 2 look. It is a full khadi dress and it feels very light to wear. I also wore a churidar under this Maxi dress. For the Indian touch, I added the bindi and a statement boho necklace. To complete the look, I carried a transparent clutch. I feel you can carry the transparent bags or shoes not only in monsoons but any time of the year.  The whole look turns out be a fusion wear and I love it. Well, I’m leaving for the Day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week and will soon upload the look of the day.

I wore this cute Off Shoulder dress from Miway for my Day 1 Street Style. I gave it a chic boho look by pairing my velvet and custom made name tag chokers. The theme of the fashion week is India Modern, so to give it an Indian twist by adding this funky printed handbag.

Upcoming Posh Residential: South of Gurgaon

Upcoming Posh Residential: South of Gurgaon

We were invited to the grand launch of South of Gurgaon where they spoke about this mega project. We also got to meet with the entire board of CREDAI and its associated partners. We had a great Q&A session regarding the stage of development of this mega project to the completion of this entire luxury affordable dream. I have done a blog on the same topic (here) before and the reason for doing it again is bigger.

11

South of Gurgaon an initiative taken up by CREDAI (National capital region) to provide luxury housing in Gurgaon’s southern location. To base this plan and differentiate it from other promising builders is a prominent name  – Cushman & Wakefield. Yes, it is true that Cushman & Wakefield in its latest report confirms a promised growth in Sohna, South of Gurgaon. With timely completion we can anticipate urbanisation in 5 to 7 years thus making it a potential future satellite city to NCR.

South-of-Gurgaon456

We can see moderate development happening as of now @SouthofGurgaon and to all those who fear about completion of the projects,I tell them to fear not because the Government is now keeping a close eye on all the builders, and will make sure that this development takes place in a timely manner and is up to the promised luxury standards.

IMG-20160814-WA0000

Who doesn’t want a luxury lifestyle @affordable price? I’m talking smooth connectivity to regional cities, A-class health and education facilities and I’m talking about the names like Max, Fortis etc.& Amity University, G.D. Goenka etc. CREDAI provides affordable residential housing in luscious green environment with the range of INR 61-89 lakh for 3BHK and INR 37-58 lakh for 2BHK, most of which is currently under various stages of construction.

Changing a lifestyle towards better and healthier future is what everyone’s heart desires, and finding a wonderland in chaotic cities is something we all need a  at this time. To all those who dream of owning a luxury apartment or a bungalow like me, look no further, you’ve got South of Gurgaon.  Don’t just take my word on it, go take a look at the development with your own eyes and share it with me in the comments section as I would love to know too. Till then, dream on, thanks for reading and this is RUDA signing off.

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.

2

3

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.

5

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.

7

8

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.

Starting with the amazing gowns, leghngas, sarees, Tuxedos, shervani, etc., they showed lots of options to choose from. Beautiful colour options, mesmerings prints and fabrics, DLF Mall of India showed us all. I also selected some of the garments for myself, which I’m definitely going to have a look.

With dhool and shehnai music, we were amazed with the ambience DLF Mall of India created which looked like a true wedding. The models were walking the ramp with wedding outfits, dancers were performing for the Mehendi and the bride was getting ready, was such an eye pleasure that I had forgotten for some time that this was a fashion show. Finally the show stopper Aditi Rao Hydari walked the ramp wearing a beautiful leghnga took all of our breath away. She looked absolutely mesmerizing!

A Fun Evening with Colin & Brad

A Fun Evening with Colin & Brad

Hi Everyone!

Black Dog Sparkling Water presents Easy Evenings and look who’s back, everyone’s favourite Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood from “WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?”

I don’t know where to begin because nothing was scripted. hhhhmmmmmmmmm OKAY! OKAY! OKAY! The show was opened by Anu Menon aka Lola Kutty from Channel V. She did a short segment on her Gujju hubby which was hilarious.

2

Then came the stars of the show Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood. They explained the audience that nothing in this show is scripted and the audience will be a part of this entire show till the end and boy did they prove it bang on!!

The show was divided into 5 sections and the first one was…

You move me baby!

In this segment our star comedians picked a couple and ask them to play as puppet masters where Colin & Brad will be playing as puppets and you can move them in any posture or position and they have to remain in that posture and build the sketch from there . The base of this scene was “two friends, finding a midget fisherman in Greece”

3

Section 2

Of the people, by the people, for the people.

This was a huge one, Oh, I hear you ask how? You greedy readers cause I’ll TELL YOU HOW!. 😛 In this sketch Colin and Brad picked 10 volunteers for their sketch. YUP! Here’s how the sketch unfolds, All of these 10 volunteers form a queue and whenever Colin or Brad raise their hand during their sketch, the volunteer at the front says whatever he has in his mind and our talent duo picks it up from there. Summary of this sketch- two mountain climbers climb onto a mountain to save a gorilla, beware do not let the gorilla be anywhere behind you cause if you’ll do, it will F**K YOU! Yes we Indians get naughty during volunteering and we loved it :P.

4

Crime alley codename thiruvananthapuram.

In this sketch Colin plays a criminal and Brad plays the cop. Colin puts on his noise reducing headphones  and Brad builds the case off of audience suggestions. The case was, that “Colin stole Donald Trump’s wig and hid it in Hillary Clinton’s underwear drawer, then he eat a live radioactive squirrel and left a masala dosa at the crime scene and all of this happened in Thiruvananthapuram. “ Yup, now Colin had to guess and confess all of this to Brad based on the hints he will give him and I tell you what, he got it all right, I give him A Okay.

5

Sound of music

In this sketch our talent duo picked a couple again from the audience and their task was to put the special effects noise to anything what Colin or Brad do. EXAMPLE- If Colin does a mime of closing a car door, then one of our volunteers will make the door-shutting noise. BEST Sketch of the evening. The scenario here was, two guys go to a Rodeo but instead of broncos they ride crocodile. By the end of this sketch I was laughing so hard that my face was aching.

6

OPERA

Last but not the least. The summary of this sketch is that Aliens have attacked and they’re taking all our sheeps. So Brad has invented a vacuum-sheep-sucking machine and wants Colin’s help to infiltrate the alien UFO and save all the sheep using that machine, but all of this was done in a les Miserables / Opera Style.

So that was the end of the show, the best part was that there are no spoilers to Colin and Brad show. Every show is unique and totally improvised right there and I love the format of involving the audience. So please, next time if you hear these names again, grab the tickets and witness the laughter in its purest form. Boom there I said IT!!

A shout out to Black Dog Sparkling Water for organizing this brilliant event!

 

BirthDay Celebration with Da Milano SS16 Collection

BirthDay Celebration with Da Milano SS16 Collection

Hi Everyone!

I have attended lots of events in the past, but this one was very special, actually was made special to me. March is my birthday month and this year I was working on my Birthday by attending events. I love attending events because you get to meet new people, know lots of new stuff going around and meet friends. This time there were two events lined up on my birthday and the first one was the Da Milano Wooba and SS’16 collection launch.

Wooba is a simplistic versatile approach to revolutionize travel. The range is known for its precision, durability, lightweight & performance. Each product is crafted to give a contemporary spin to the regular travel gear, experimenting with the extremely durable canvas paired with leather trims on the edges. The collection is fabricated with best-in-class material, functional superiority and technical innovation to compliment the unique lifestyles of refined travelers.

I was feeling so light and colourful on that day because of Da Milano’s Spring-Summer collection which has Floral Print leather bags. We all know that girls are already crazy about bags, especially me. If I’m going for shopping I cannot get back without buying a bag. The Collection comes in an amazing plethora of floral design sensibilities and amazingly bright & sheeny colors and at the same time. The collection contains luxury and styles that are associated with the brand to give every woman her personal style statement.

I totally had fun meeting my fellow blogger friends who bought me gifts (Smiley-Smiley) and meeting with the lovely Da-Milano team at their outlet. DA Milano is an iconic award-winning premium leather accessories brand, uniquely positioned as a leading International player in the leather fashion accessories market and it was an honor to be a part of the launch. So go and check out Da-Milano’s Wooda and their new SS’16 collection. I’m sure you will love it the way I did.
