From Twēġen To Triad – #CBCStylori

August 7, 1997

Birthdays are always fun, especially during school days. For a person like me who plans what to buy for the next birthday from this birthday onward, birthdays are super fun. My wedding planning and fashion consulting instincts come from my childhood, I guess. I always plan my birthdays to perfection, and I shamelessly boast around that it is my birthday.

My school, despite its disciplinary rules and regulations, allows students to wear civil dress (back then, I call it color dress :P) on birthdays. I was in grade 3, and I was wearing this wonderful pink frock with white satin belt. I still remember most of my favorite clothes from childhood. My mom had preserved most of them and passed them over to my nieces, and some of the dresses were well-preserved in form of photographs.

We also had the habit of distributing candies to the fellow students. You have to believe me when I say I was the most silent kid in the classroom. Yes, I was a shy and silent girl, an introvert too, till I hit puberty. I was naughty at home, but to the outside world, I was the most shy kid. My mom had given me Alpenliebe candies to be distributed to my classmates. Read the rest of this entry

Party Look #2 – What I wore for Sun TV Awards Show?

Hi, Gorgeous People,

I wanted to have a peaceful and calm weekend, but on Saturday, early in the morning, at 7:40 AM my best friend called to invite me to her company’s (Sun TV) award ceremony. It is similar to the awards shows by channels like Star Plus, etc. I initially wanted to turn down the offer, but finally accepted as I had no concrete reason to say No. As this was an impromptu party for me, I didn’t have much time to finalize my clothes, so I ended up wearing a saree that I wore on my sister’s house warming ceremony. Here, have a look: Read the rest of this entry

Safi – Natural Blood Purifier – Review

Hi Gorgeous People!!

“Sri, yet another trip. Damn, you are of marriageable age. Don’t spoil your skin” – Well, yeah that’s my mom’s reaction when I ask for permission to go on a trip. Trip or no trip, sin anyhow gets spoiled – thanks to the pollution, poor eating habits, and weird diseases like PCOD that causes ill-effects on our lovely skin. I have been there, suffered that – yeah, the worst pollution, PCOD, trips, Holi colors, face painting, Junk Food, etc. Whatsoever cosmetics we use, they clear and clean our external skin but what purifies our blood and gives our face a natural glow? A Natural Blood Purifier does! Read the rest of this entry
