What's New?

What’s a shoe fanatic without a brilliant collection of sneakers? Everyone loves shopping for footwear and apart from the usual pumps, stilettos, brogues among others, we all love spending a good amount from our savings account on a fancy pair of kicks that can spruce up any outfit. This season, the international market is flooded with some stylish and versatile sneakers that we can’t stop eyeing. Pair it with distressed denims and graphic tee or add some funk to by wearing it with a dress, a cool pair of sneakers can never go wrong. While hunting for some footwear (and adding some to our wish list), we decided to compile a list of the best sneakers, that certainly needs to make its way into our wardrobes.



Nike Dunk Sky Hi
C’mon! Admit it. We all love the Nike Dunk Sky Hi collection. Every season, Nike surprises us with new colors and fabrics, making it difficult to choose just one favorite. If the Red or Blue dunks left you wanting for more, you will be delighted to see the new Coral dunks, or even the white, blue and purple ones. Oh! And did we tell you, we are totally lusting over the brand new leather dunk-sky hi? We saw them at the recently held Nike Press Preview and well, we couldn't have asked for a better eye candy!


Vans Brigata
A happy pair of canvas sneakers is perfect to add a vintage or school girl charm to your outfit. We came across the new Vans classic range called Brigata, which takes inspiration from nautical hues and elements. The range is divided into three types - Vans Brigata, C&C Brigata and the C&L Brigata - and couldn’t stop going gaga over it. If the basics like white, grey or black are your thing, then opt for a simple pair from the Brigata collection. Or if the nautical inspired hues are your thing, then go for the Brigata C&C range. If want to add a funky touch, go for the C&L range, which includes tonal laces and contrast liners. Who said canvas sneakers had to be boring white, eh?




Converse Cons Weapon Invader
Bring out the military diva in you and show off your attitude. Wear these cool Converse Weapon Invaders when you are all set to steal the show and invade the streets. Planning to head out in the night in these beauties? Well, get ready to shine, as the Weapon Invader has a glow in the dark outsole. The gold detailing provides the perfect finish to this strong and stunning pair.



Puma x Solange Wild Wonder Sneaker
Fun burst of colors and tons of metallic fun! Am I talking about a party? Nope! But one look at the beautiful Puma x Solange Wild Wonder collection sneaker and you can’t help but get your party mode one. Although this collection was launched last year, we continue our obsession with these babies. The fun silhouettes, textures, unique designs and the use of mesh underlays (perfect for summer) make this one a winner! Oh, and those graphic mid soles are the bomb.


And last but not the least! Here’s presenting the super lust worthy pair of sneakers this year.

Marc Jacobs fringed low-top sneakers
This stunning fringed slide-on pair is currently topping almost every shoe wish list. What’s not to like here? One look at that quilted detailing at the heel or the sophisticated fringe, and you will know what I am talking about. Since fringes is a much loved trend this season, this skate-inspired sneaker is definitely a must have if you can afford to splurge.

What's colorful, fun, long lasting and light on the pocket? Well, we are talking about a super cool Nail Enamel brand that hit the Indian market earlier this year. LYN (Live Your Now) Nails, originally launched globally 13 years back, is a fun and trendy nail enamel line. It was officially launched in India during the Nailathon in Mumbai this year. Since I missed the event held during the Nailathon in January, I made up my mind to not miss the pampering session organised for us at the Juice salon and nail bar by the folks at LYN last month. While we got a chance to try the relaxing mani-pedi and then, choose from an array of nail colors to experiment with some nail art, we also decided to sample some of their other shades and review it for you. 



Product: LYN (Live Your Now) Nail Enamel

Price: Rs 350

What it promises: The Live Your Now team has worked closely with an expert formulator based in France to create a revolutionary high defination nail lacquer that promises to give you nothing less than pure color perfection. These lacquers have been formulated with pigments that reveal their true brightness and vividness for ultimate wear. LYN salon quality nail lacquers glide on like satin, dries fast and are available in 100 gorgeous shades!


 Texture: Very smooth. True to its word, it does glide on quite smoothly.

Application: The nail enamel pot's brush is a fine, sturdy one, which makes the application hassle free and holds enough nail paint without dripping.

Our experience: LYN spoils you for choice when it comes to selecting a shade. During my first experience at the event, we had the option of choosing from the available nail art designs or flipping through the additional options from their catalog on the iPad. After selecting a combination of pink and gold, the base coat was used, which is a good product for its price. Next, the nail enamel was used and I must say, the application was very smooth. The first coat itself had a satiny finish and needless to say, the second coat brought out the true color of the enamel beautifully. In the end, the top coat ensures a glossy finish and makes sure the color holds on for long. The same happened during our second and third trial at home. In case you are experimenting with multiple colors (or nail art), beware, as drying your nails might require more time. Otherwise, two coats of a single nail color dries off quite quickly. During all the three trials, the color lasted for 5-7 days.


What works:  - Since LYN falls into the same category as other leading nail enamel brands, we like the pricing. It is the same amount that you will pay for the Lakme Gel Stylist or Revlon Parfumerie range. And for the kind of variety that you get, LYN definitely has an upper hand
- The texture is definitely our favorite pro of this item
- Apart from colors, you also have tons of metallic and shimmer options to choose from
-  Both of Base Coat and Top Coat do their job well; the Top Coat a little more.

What doesn't: - Right now, the availability is a tiny issue. LYN Nail Enamel is available at Juice salon outlets and on e-commerce sites like Purplle.com and Nykaa.com.


Verdict: If you are looking at experimenting with new shades, trying a different color everyday or are just plain bored with the ones available in the market, we suggest you give LYN nail enamel a shot! Highly recommended for its variety, finish and brilliant texture. With tempting colors like Evagreen, No Morning Blues, and sexy shimmers like Mauve The Merrier; you will definitely want to buy em all!

It feels so good to be back to business and typing posts at break neck speed again (well, almost). Most of you already know that the last fortnight of March was nothing less than a nightmare for me. At a time when I was working on Anniversary specials, contests and other surprises scheduled for March 23 (plus truckloads of work), one incident ruined it all, including my health. Well, for those who came late, I met with a horrific road accident while traveling for an event and ended up with several painful bruises and injuries (which you will notice in this post, especially on face and hands). Thankfully, the almighty god was there to protect us and thus, blessed us all with his divine grace.




 Though I was advised to stay away from typing, walking and of course, too much traveling for 15 days, I had to immediately get back to work due to commitments the very next day. But  as soon as the weekend work wrapped up, I had ice packs, hot bags, all kinds of bandages and medicines waiting for me at home. Thanks to all these restrictions (and drowsy medicines), work got slow and other Team Dancebee members took charge for sometime. But being a person who doesn't give up too easily, I got back to work within a week and slowly, I have started editing, typing and traveling too. And all this because of the love that you, the readers, keep showering upon me and this blog - Diary of a Dancebee.




Heartfelt gratitude to each and every reader, supporter and follower of Diary of a Dancebee. We couldn't have come so far without you. You give us the strength to wake up every morning with great enthusiasm to present interesting articles, fresh features, detailed interviews and news stories. You give us the support to keep going. Your emails, tweets and messages bring a smile on my face, even on the most ridiculous days. You encourage me to keep taking this blog a notch higher. And it is all thanks to your blessings that despite my one and a half year long break (due to my stint as a journalist), I had the courage to bounce back and get rocking with new set of ideas, just like I did when Diary of a Dancebee made its debut. 




Posing for Bed Head TIGI! Shoutout to the awesome team for their fun hair makeovers at the Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015

Nothing could have been possible without your love and blessings, dear readers! Diary of a Dancebee has got the most amazing set of loyal readers and fans. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you for making this journey as Miss Dancebee so enjoyable. I, on behalf of Team Dancebee, promise to keep all our readers entertained with fun posts, all year long. Keep that support, love and of course, the blessings coming in. Here's to many more Blog Anniversaries. 
And while I continue to take good care of that bruised nose and swollen arm, we want you folks to enjoy our new articles and videos everyday. Have fun, stay blessed! Big bear hug to one and all.

Most of us have got a skincare regime for both day and night. We take good care of our face and neck area. In addition, we make sure that key areas like eyes and lips are well moisturized with the use of an eye cream or lip balm. But, have you ever wondered which is the most ignored part of our face? We do flutter these beauties with pride and even give them a 3D or high definition effect with all kinds of Mascaras. Yes! We are talking about - Eyelashes. While we do have castor oil as an option that can nourish our lashes, but it leaves your eyelashes feeling all sticky and that is not something that you would not want before sleeping. So, we came across an interesting product by Inglot, an eyelash serum, that promises to take care of your lashes.



What it promises: Inglot Eyelash Serum is an innovative formula for conditioning the lashes. With regular use you will not only greatly improve the general condition of your lashes, but also visibly see an increase in eyelash length. Peptides provide the intense care, lengthening and thickening the eyelashes. 

Application: Apply directly to the roots of your lashes each evening.

Texture: Smooth, transparent serum. The applicator is handy, making the product easy to use.

Price: Rs 1100


Our Experience:
We tested this product for a week and the experience so far has been quite good. Since I am obsessed with all kinds of eye make up products, I knew that the regular application of different Mascaras are doing enough damage to my lashes. Thankfully, after using this the Inglot serum for a week, my lashes feel nourished and soft. To witness the eyelash growth, we will have to wait for 3 to 4 weeks (even the product says so). The best part about the Inglot Eyelash Serum is that it does not give you any sticky or irritating feeling. You can also apply this product as a transparent mascara or brow gel. It works quite well.

What works: We love how it works as a multitasking product, as it can also double up as a transparent mascara or brow gel.

What doesn't: The product is flawless, but we wish it was a little easy on the pocket.



Verdict: This is definitely a must try! For those looking at taking good care of their lashes and helping them grow, we guess this product will work wonders. Though it costs Rs 1100, we think its not that bad an investment. This product has now become an essential part of my everyday beauty regime, the most important after my lip balm, of course.

If there is any piece of apparel that I can trust, even on days when I am down and not really interested in spending several minutes on putting together the right outfit, it has to be a graphic tee. You can never go wrong with them. While a cool graphic tee and a pair of distressed denims happens to be the favorite go-to outfit of most individuals, this humble tee can do a lot more. We give you five ways in which you can wear a graphic tee this summer and look your stylish best at every occasion.



Graphic tee + skirt
Who said skirts are only fit for chic blousons and shirts? Wear your favorite skirt in any color with a fun graphic tee (maybe with a cool slogan) and get set for a fun day out with your gal pals. Opt for a pair of flatforms for a more casual look or ankle strap heels for a fun afternoon. Light make up, loose wavy hair, a watch with some arm candy (bracelets) and voila! You are ready to rock.

Graphic tee + shorts
Its summer, alright! And who doesn’t love hitting the beach or hanging around in a pair of shorts in fun colors. Shorts, flip flops, a quirky knapsack, and of course, graphic tee with funky prints and we have got the perfect outfit. You can also swap the flip flop for loafers, flatforms in metallic finish or even funky sneakers like the ones at Vans or Nike. Oh, and don’t forget your sun block and a fun pair of reflective Lennon mirror glasses or wayfarers.



Graphic tee + overalls (dungarees)
For those who love to dress up differently! I heart this combination. A pair of denim overalls (full, shorts or skirt) looks fantastic with a graphic tee, giving you a more relaxed vibe. Let your hair loose (or just tie up in to a messy bun), pick your favorite Ray Ban aviators and finish your look with a pair of kicks. Wear it to a movie date or a music concert, topped with oodles of attitude and confidence. Oh, and to add some drama, maybe leave one side of your side overall buttons open.



Graphic tee + blazer
Hands down one of my favorite looks! Blazers are not just meant to look boring with sophisticated shirts and simple tees. A colorful blazer and the right graphic tee is the perfect formula for a cool outfit, which is perfect for a variety of occasions – ranging from a meeting, lunch with friends, event or even a dinner date. While I love pairing ripped jeans with this combination, you can also try wearing it with a pencil skirt or even denim shorts. Sneaker heels or even a pair of pumps are enough to complete this look. Nude lips and loose hair are enough to add some charm.



Graphic tee + boyfriend jeans
Everybody loves this combination, right? There are days when you can’t find any outfit and bam! The graphic tee and boyfriend jeans combination comes to your rescue. The chilled out vibe of this outfit is what makes it a winner. Stepping out under the hot sun in the afternoon? Tie up your hair in a bun, wear your sunnies, wear the most comfortable kicks and taper your jeans for a relaxed look. You can also opt to tie a plaid shirt (raid your boyfriend’s wardrobe) around your waist. Going out for a movie with friends at night? Wear a long cardigan over the outfit, give your hair some soft curls, wear a chunky watch and replace the kicks with a pair of metallic loafers. Finish off the look with a bright lip color.


One graphic tee, so much versatility! Who would have thought, right? It’s all about experimenting with what you have already got in your wardrobe. Still wanna step out and buy these fun tees? Some of our favorite brands available in India that stock up on fab graphic tees include – Forever 21, Mango, Zara, Chimp Wear, Lifestyle, FCUK, Pantaloons and Ed Hardy among others. There is also H&M, which at the moment, is still on its way to India.

So, how are you styling your graphic tee today? Share with us on Twitter at @priyaadivarekar

Nike Air Max has seen constant evolution. One look at the Air Max 2015 (worn in my #BleedBlue post here) and we can't help but say how much the Air Max range has changed over the years. This year, the Nike Air Max completes 28 years on March 26 and fans from across the globe are celebrating this day. Let's take you through a quick journey of Nike's popular range of shoes has seen evolution since 1987.

In 1987, Nike Air was not a new proposition. Runners were already familiar with the benefits of the cushioning technology, which first appeared in the Nike Tailwind in 1978. But seeing is believing, right? So, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield set out to make the breakthrough technology visible, so that the runners could understand its cushioning benefits better. He created the Nike Air Max with Visible Air, which gave birth to a franchise that forever altered the course of sneakers.

The story of visible air didn’t begin with Hatfield’s design. Rather, it started when David Forland, Nike’s Director of Cushioning Innovation, joined the team in 1985. In many respects, Forland is the world’s foremost expert in visible air. He has been focused on pushing the technology into unexplored new territories for the past 30 years. He is also the first to admit that the road to Air Max had its share of obstacles. In the ‘80s, Forland constructed encapsulated Air-Sole prototypes by hand. He stumbled upon a critical moment in visible air history when he rotated the bag, placing the seams on the top and bottom instead of on the perimeter.
At that exact moment the light bulb turned on. I built a new prototype right there on the spot - David Forland

And thus, the first prototype of visible Nike Air technology was born, and the Nike Air Max 1 became the first shoe to showcase it. Prior to this breakthrough, Nike Air-Soles were getting thinner, not larger. In an effort to increase the sensory perception of walking on air, Forland quickly changed the approach.
If you look at the history of Air Max, especially from 1987 to 1993, one of the main differences among models was each version held a greater volume of air than the last one, and conversely the least amount of foam. Foam breaks down; air doesn't - David Forland
During the pursuit of increased air volume, Forland had another aha moment. Eliminating the foam between the outsole and the Air-Sole unit might create space for increased Air-Sole volume. With that idea came the Nike Air Max 180, the first shoe to feature a 180-degree visible Air-Sole — which was no easy task for Forland.

The idea was much easier said than done. The Air Max 180 was one of the most difficult Air Max sneakers to create - David Forland
At that point, the Air Max 1, Air Max 180 and Air Max 90 all featured Air-Sole units in the forefoot that were encapsulated in foam. As the quest for a fully foamless running sneaker continued, the team made a monumental discovery: a new Air-Sole construction method called blow molding. First used on the Nike Air Max 93, this technique allowed for the creation of Air-Soles in 3-D shapes that didn't depend on air pressure. Now, Air-Soles could be crafted to fit the curvature of the shoe’s forefoot. Taking full advantage of the innovation, the Nike Air Max 95, which consisted of two separate blow-molded Air-Sole units, was the first manifestation of visible air in the forefoot.


In 1997, Nike designers and developers cracked the code on how to create a full-length Air-Sole, making a monumental leap forward toward the goal of a fully foamless Air Max. The first step was to construct an interconnected heel and forefoot unit. The next task was to figure out how to hold the molten film long enough to close a full-length 3-D mold around it. Many prototypes and one bullet train later, the Air Max 97 came into existence.

After unlocking full-length air, ideas around air seemed endless. Nike began to focus on other forms of cushioning, one of which was Tuned Air. This innovative play on air cushioning first debuted on the 1999 Nike Air Max Plus and used physical structures to augment the stability of Nike Max Air cushioning. The next advancement came with the Air Max 360 in 2006, which finally attained the goal of a foamless shoe — nearly 20 years after the first Air Max. To create the Air Max 360, Forland’s team utilized Caged Air technology instead of foam as the stabilizer.


The all-air accomplishment did not mark the end of Air Max evolution. Forland’s team had fulfilled its mission, but they could not resist the question of how to further improve the franchise. Forland and the team shifted focus from eliminating foam to increasing flexibility. Utilizing tubular construction, they built deep flex grooves into the Air-Soles of the Nike Air Max 2015, resulting in the most flexible Max Air cushioning platform ever.
After the long journey, Forland learned that innovation doesn't come without risk.

I remember the first blow-molded Air-Sole unit. We worked so hard on that and had no idea if people would embrace it. I was at an airport right around the time the first Air Max sneaker launched. I was calling a tech in the lab when someone walked by wearing a pair. I stared at him from the phone booth and said, ‘Somebody bought them. I see the Air-Sole going up and down.’ It was a big risk, but bigger reward. For the Air Max family, it's only up from here - David Forland

While all eyes were stuck on the shows that were scheduled to take place at the Main Stage Area (MSA) and of course, the grand finale, three designers left us impressed with their collection showcase at the Jabong Stage. These Power Girls of Day 5 at the Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015, namely Farah Sanjana, Ridhi Mehra and Shilpa Reddy, showcased some of the most beautiful outfits that day, and well, we just couldn't take our eyes off it.

Farah Sanjana's Military Diva, Ridhi Mehra's A Mirror Affaire and Shilpa Reddy's Moon Lit Sand
Farah Sanjana's Military Diva
Every season, designer Farah Sanjana surprises us and how! Last year, we loved how she played with a burst of colors and prints inspired by flamingos. But this season, her ode to the modern women, who does not shy away from dressing up the way she wants, sure turned a lot of heads. The beautiful creations, embellished with the innovative motifs of swords and scimitars, infused sophistication and strong, fierce prints in pretty hues like porcelain, ivory, pale pink, amber, classic black, soft mint and olive green among others, perfectly. Thus, making it the must have garb of an independent, head strong woman. Majestic skirts with strong cuts were teamed with jackets; body hugging skirts spoke of the feminism, while trousers redefined the Spanish silhouettes. Some of our favorites included the shift dresses, cropped tops teamed with gathered skirts, bikinis enveloped under printed capes among others.

Shilpa Reddy's Moon Lit Sand
Elegant, mesmerizing and magical - three words that best describe designer Shilpa Reddy's collection - Moon Lit Sand. True to its title, the ethereal collection was inspired by the moon and  hence, the color palette comprised of some lovely hues like gold, silver, white, sand, royal blue, copper, grey and nudes, giving the collection a timeless edge. We loved the easy going, relaxed silhouettes of the collection. Some of our favorites included the skirts, jackets, tops, blouses, capes, pants and lehenga cholis in luxurious fabrics like malka and khadi silk. The intricate designs with embellishments like beads, sequins and crystals, floral motifs, thread work, embroidery and subtle texturing stood out in each outfit. Moments after the lights dimmed, actress Nimrat Kaur walked in and gracefully took over the runway in a stunning forest green embroidered lehenga teamed with a half sleeved jacket worn over a sensual low cut blouse.

Ridhi Mehra's A Mirror Affaire
Designer Ridhi Mehra took the crop top world by storm last season,with her versatile crop tops in various hues and intricate lace work winning several hearts. This season, her glamorous and chic collection titled A Mirror Affaire, was inspired by the intriguing interior decoration of the Sheesh Mahal - the palace of unbelievable beauty. The collection artistically created a melange of the romantic era and the craftsmanship of the Mughals. Pretty, soft-powdered hues like blush, nude, peach as well as bold shades like mint green, orange and dreamy white dominated the color palette.
While Mehra's signature design elements were hard to miss, the creations also included a brilliant mix of aari and mirror work, with hints of zardosi. We just couldn't take our eyes off some beautiful anarkalis, jumpsuits, capes, jackets with peplums, saris, blouses and cholis.
The collection saw the use of Chanderi silk, georgette, chiffon, satin and net, that created airy feminine silhouettes. Showstopper Kiara Advani, who debuted in Fugly last year, graced the runway in a stunning green choli and lehanga enriched with several layers of embroidered fabric.
A word for the gorgeous footwear by Dune London and accessories by Prerto, that further enhanced the overall look.

The moment I was informed that I will have to cover the Wendell Rodricks show presented by Philips, I was super excited. And the legendary designer did not fail to impress us with his collection yet again. Popology was a wonderful blend of colors, pretty silhouettes, summery fabrics and more. This weekend show at the Lakme Fashion Week S/R2 2015 sure was a packed one.
Inspired by the Pop Art trend, Rodricks' collection was like a burst of color on stage. One look at the visuals in the background and you will know what we are talking about. This collection was also a referral to the concept of pop-up stores at unusual places, which make it accessible to a wider group of consumers. The designer's idea was to fit into the concept of youthful fashion that made it attainable in an instant.


Based on a wave of nostalgia from the 1960’s style and silhouettes, the line brought a very fashion-forward touch to the ramp.  The signature style carried out by Rodricks, who is known to excel in his craft and expertise, was clearly evident as the models hit the runway. The collection included some fun pieces in an array of hues like sunshine yellow, burnt orange, olive green, pale mint, dove grey, black, candy pink, pale lilac, Turkish blue, turquoise blue and signature white. Each garment sent out a precise Pop Art statement in terms of the cut, color and freshness.

It was a treat to watch the models dancing and sashaying down the runway to upbeat music. The clothing line commenced with a black Lycra bikini and hot pants under silk crépe rectangular beach shirt. Soon, it was the 60’s silhouettes like the purple crépe silk dress featuring a yellow satin stripe, olive and dove grey ribbons that were worn over yellow linen capris. The collection transported us to the virgin beaches of Mauritius, where we could dance it out on with the waves and certainly do with one piece each from the collection.


Show stopper, Waluscha Robinson, took us by surprise, as the lights dimmed to neon blue and she walked out wearing a jet black swimsuit over a wool crépe pleated peplum skirt. It was a treat to watch her on the ramp in that outfit. Absolutely refreshing! Popology by Wendell Rodricks presented by Philips was a vibrant, fun, young line of clothing that we couldn't get enough of. And it matched the youthful and zestful spirit of styling products by Philips very well. So, the next time you hit the beach, you know what to do. Get your beachy waves on with the Philips Kerashine Hair Styler, pick a fun outfit from Wendell's collection and get set for a bucket full of compliments!

It was great fun covering this show for Team DancebeePhilips and Blog Adda. Thank you guys!
Don't be confused with the background of my photographs and the title of this post. I am not holidaying in Goa (at least, not yet). These images were quickly shot in between attending shows, makeovers, video shoots and more on Day One of the Lakme Fashion Week. I can't stop going gaga over how much fun I had at the LFW Apartment once again. The set up is wonderful as always, providing some quick relaxation and makeover opportunity for those like me, who are always on their toes during the fashion week (and otherwise). While I shall keep you posted about my experience at the LFW Apartment and the outfit put together by me from the curated items by Reliance Brands Limited, here's a glimpse of what I wore on the first day - getting into the bohemian print vibe!
