When in doubt just raid your crafts closet. On one such raid, I randomly cut up pieces of threads and started braiding them and braided those braids. By the end of it I almost had a necklace in my hands. A chain and a couple of jump rings later, I had just that- a brand new necklace !

So, how's the weather out there ?

Just kidding.

Have you checked out our new space yet ? Its out here and its called beautyig.com  
After months of thinking of a short yet relevant name, I came up with beautyig- short for Beauty and Indian Girl. Its gonna take me months of explaining this cos its not a real word. Either ways am game !

I wanted to stop by our old home and give you a glimpse of the new one.


Yesterday I tested out an amazing face mask. As I find myself more and more drawn towards Ayurveda and yoga and in general tree hugger stuff, I also find myself trying out all natural products. This is one of those.

I read today in the papers that people who meditated were in general more compassionate towards fellow human beings. Now, we all know the world could use a little more compassion. Lets Om on that 



I've also been cooking up a storm. Check out this home made, fat free jam- its just like orange marmalade, only way more healthier and loaded with lot more Vitamin C. 





I find dressing up my lips, the easiest way to look put together after filling in my brows. These lips stains make things easier for me, with absolute no need for touch ups. And they are a drugstore product !




So whatchu waiting for, come by and make our new home, yours. All are welcome to come and stay over !

Love,
Indian Girl

Three hours back Miley Cyrus went ahead and got her blond locks chopped off by celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan.

Debuting her hairstyle on twitter, Cyrus said "Never felt more me in my whole life ❤." We know what a new hair cut does to our confidence and Cyrus seems to have had her own personal high from this super edgy cut. Its not everyday you see someone going from a perpetual top knot to platinum blond, sharp pixie so yay for Cyrus giving us hair fanatics something to gush over. It is to be seen if this pixie goes on to become as big as the Rachel did for Jennifer Aniston; also courtesy of Chris McMillan


Needless to say, I love the cut. What do you think of the brand new change in this pop star's look ?

The Indian flag ends up inspiring an unlikely prospect- a cheesecake.

Chefs at the coffee place, Mocha have turned to what they do best to show their love for our country. They created this tricolor cheesecake(Rs. 150). Creative stuff, no doubt. However will it make you wait in line to stuff yourself with this Indian flag inspired sweet treat, is to be seen. 

Personally I would have loved a navy blue coloured chakra made with white chocolate on top, to make it more Indian. The saffron (orange), white and green can easily be used to mark Ireland or Ivory Coast who share the colours with India. How's that for today's lesson in history.

If any of you living in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata or Raipur indulge in this, do let me know how good it tastes.

Love,
Indian Girl

Dia Mirza debuted her new hair-do, brow-skimming bangs at the 2012 Vogue Beauty Awards, held last night in Mumbai. Mirza, who's natural hair is fine and straight couldn't go wrong with these mega bangs. I love the look!

What do you think of these new set of bangs in Bollywood ? Here's looking forward to seeing how she continues to style it.

Finally I am back.

Back to my home. Back to my blog where I belong.

Last Friday was my last day with Vogue India. The one year and four months in Mumbai, working with the world's favourite fashion magazine's digital team was a dream. I made great friends and had the best time working there. However, it was hardly work given that I was doing what I love. This made showing up at work, one of my favourite things to wake up in the morning for.

However, with my wedding in December and several other things on my mind, I decided to move on from there. I will now be available full-time to continue pursuing what I love in my own backyard.

Before I left for Vogue, I was in the process of developing our blog into a website and had done all the ground work for it. However, the great opportunity came along and I put our project on hold temporarily. It is now time to bring it back to life and get it up and running.

So, that I where I have been.

Well, that and trying out a new smoothie every morning for breakfast.

And adding new yoga pose to my existing yoga routine before I down the jug of smoothie. Today I tried the wide leg forward bend.

And finding a cozy corner to doze away at all night long Indian weddings.



Love,
Indian Girl
