Apart from the regular runway analysis, fashion conversations and more, what kept me busy (well, almost) at the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week Summer - Resort 2014 were the makeovers and new collection preview at the Lakme Absolute Salon near the main stage area. I am not into experimenting with my hairstyle, so I was a little skeptical about opting for something really different. The stylist informed that she wants to avoid keeping the hair open, since I was wearing gold tassel earrings that needs to be shown off. Well then, here we go.

The Nature's Co - Store Review

0
COM
Who doesn't want a skin care routine that is absolutely harmless, cruelty free and au naturale? The least any individual would want is their CTM products to be full of harmful chemicals or unsafe ingredients. Thanks to our faster than a bullet train lifestyle, our skin goes through a lot of trouble already. Add to that the dust, pollution, UV rays and above all, the invisible chemical particles cause a lot of harm to our skin, some of which just goes unnoticed. Maybe that's why, many people are now taking shelter in the nature's lap and trying to find products which are similar to the skin remedies and concoctions mixed up in their grandma's kitchen. 
My recent visit to The Nature's Co branch at Palladium reminded me of just that. Enter the store and you are engulfed in the aroma of Eco - friendly, vegan body, hair and face products. But do the products stand by their promise and deliver a good result?

Film Speak: R... Rajkumar

There are some films that are made to spread awareness or pass a message, while some are made to keep you entertained and make the entire movie viewing experience worth your money (like they say - Paisa vasool). Prabhu Dheva's R... Rajkumar belongs to the latter, as this 2 hour 18 minute film keeps you hooked on till the last scene with its perfect blend of Pyaar, Emotion, Maar - dhaad, Drama, Naach - Gaana and more. Masala entertainers seldom earn stars from some so - called film reviewers, who try to find logic in everything that they watch. One individual went on to say that this is the worst film of 2013, which means this person clearly enjoyed watching Besharam and Grand Masti. Well, to each his own and every individual has a point of view. But, is it fair to write disgraceful comments and prevent people from judging the film on their own? The answer is - NO. If I am paying for a ticket and it is me who will watch the film, then I have the right to choose what I want to watch. No review, tweet or words of hatred can stop me from liking something. Thankfully, several people agreed to this and that is one reason why R... Rajkumar was liked by the Aam Junta.
They watch what they like, instead of listening to the chappad chappad of critics! Ha.

PS: Thought of adding this extra note. I have seen the film thrice already and that too in the same weekend.

How is that? - A still from the song Mat Maari

Film Speak: Goliyon ki Rasleela - Ramleela

I finally got a chance to watch one of the most awaited films on my 'Must watch' list of 2013, directed by the man who is known for his detailed inputs in almost every department - Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The film may have got mixed responses and recently managed to cross the 100 crore mark, but I have never allowed all these elements to affect my opinion of a film. For me, the film was very well presented and yes, it did have its share of highs and lows. Please don't tell me the story was predictable or lame, because Bhansali was very clear that the film is an adaptation of William Shakespeare (unless you missed the hype around the film or the opening credits). So, here's presenting my list of highs and lows.

Head over heels in love
