Virsuhka Reception Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The grand reception of Virushka took place in Mumbai on the 26th of December. The reception was the grandest celebration of the year. It was beyond what everyone had thought. The last celebration of the newly wed power couple was undoubtedly the best celebration of the year 2017.The reception had plethora of guests and it was a very unique amalgam of cricket and Bollywood. The couple had invited almost everybody from the film industry and the entire cricket team. The celebration also saw the presence of cinematographers, Bollywood biggies, Nita Ambani , and so on. From Nita Ambani, to Shah Rukh Khan , Amitabh Bachhan along with his daughter and Abhishek and Aishwarya graced the reception of the new B-Town.

The fun fact that happened on the reception is that Virat’s attire got swapped with another label. Virat along with his wife Anushka were supposed to were Sabyasachi, but instead Virat’s attire for the big night got swapped with a Raghavendra Rathore outfit. Though the Sabyasachi outfit was very much similar to what Virat wore on the big day but he still managed to look the dapper captain that he is. Virat wore a Raghavendra Rathore’s Bandhgala classic style number 19 from the label. He wore a pink shirt and beige polo pants with Bandhgala. But without a doubt this time the bride stole the evening.

Anushka dazzled in a classic custom made Sabyasachi outfit. Anushka wanted to wear old world glamour and along with the designer they decided to bring the glamour with a smoky grey. Her lehenga was made of hand beaten silver thread, textured sequins and cut organza flower were assembled on an embroidered tulle base to create an ethereal lehenga. Craftsman from Lucknow rendered her dupatta which was clinched on her waist with the signature Sabyasachi ‘ Bengal Tiger ‘ belt. She chose to do justice with her outfit but keeping it light on her make-up. Her make-up was very subtle and for her hair she went for a vintage side swept wave. For her accessories, she wore a necklace and earring handcrafted with rose cut diamonds, solitaires and briolettes from the Sabyasachi fine jewelry collection.

Sara and Ibrahim Ali Khan

Apart from the highlight of the night, Virushka the guests weren’t any lesser than the couple. The guest from the extremely fun night wore label like Manish Malhotra, Falguni Shane Peacock, Sabyasachi, Anita dongre. Of all the designers Manish Malhotra was the one label that most of the guests wore for the evening. Sri Devi, Katrina Kaif and her sister Isabelle, Kriti Sanon, Aishwarya Rai Bachhan, Richa Chadha, Vani Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sakshi Dhoni and Karan Johar were seen dazzling in the label. The reception saw the presence of Saif’s son and daughter, Sara and Ibrahim Ali Khan sizzling in an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfits.

Bhumi Pednekar and Diana Penty  wore a Falguni Shane Peacock outfit. All in all it was a starry night and a perfect end to 2017. We wish the couple all the happiness and luck.

Virushka Reception Part 1

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The newly wed power couple of B-Town  after giving us the wedding of the year threw probably the best reception so far. On 21st of December Virushka held their first reception in Delhi. Their reception took place in Hotel Taj Palace. The reception in Delhi was more of a family affair. The reception saw many family members getting clicked with the newly wedded couple, Virushka.

The highlight of the entire wedding reception was the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The couple invited the PM a day ago of their first reception. Well, this is the first part of their wedding reception.  Along with the PM the reception got alive with the fabulous performance of Gurdas Mann. The legendary Punjabi folk singer graced their reception with his overwhelming act. There is a grand reception in Mumbai which will take place on the 26th of December. Talking about the reception, the couple went completely traditional for their reception. Both of them wore completely traditional attires and looked breathtaking. With all the lovely setting the couple looked like a vision.

A bride is incomplete without wearing red in one of her wedding function. Though the times have been changing and the brides wish to break the status quo by wearing different shades of gold or silver. But on the contrary Anushka chose red above all the colors for her reception. Anushka wore a red Banarasi Sabyasachi saree along with heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. But the true highlight of her entire look was the traditionally wore attire. Not very often we see Bollywood brides still holding onto their traditional roots, but Anushka went on a completely different road. She wore a very generous amount of sindoor along with red bindi and mogra which made the look potent and powerful.

And to compliment his bride, Virat wore a very subtle and elegant style. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the Sabyasachi House button crafted in 18k gold. A white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidar. He teamed it up with morris from Sabyasachi accessories line and hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from the ‘Kashmir Revival’ project of Sabyasachi.
Their Delhi reception created a lot of buzz. The buzz was due to the fact that it was filled with fun and dance. A lot of Virshuka videos went viral of the couple dancing together. The couple danced on the all the songs that Gurdas Mann sang on the wedding reception as part of his act. Besides it being a family affair, Suresh Raina along with his wife Priyanka Raina attended the Delhi reception. Shekhar Dhawan came along with his entire family and danced with the couple. No wonder it was one hell of an evening. But we can’t wait for the most awaited event of 2017, the Mumbai Reception. Plethora of guests are invited for the reception and it will be the best of both world kinda thing, both worlds; B-Town and the Cricket fraternity all under one roof.

Wedding Look, Nailed It

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Wedding season is on and its time to hack that perfect wedding guest look. A look that is as easy as the title of the blog and its even more simple to achieve. But for the perfect look you ought to have some vanity essential to escalate the look. You would need the obvious essential for every look. A perfect lip colour, good non oily base, highlighter, eye liner, eye shadow palette, perfect blush, and the most important a blow dryer.

You need to first do your make -up and then start with your hair. Hair won’t take look as this hack can work for a voluminous blow dried look but in case you want to experiment with your hair you can curl them or  you can straighten them.

  • For the make-up like mentioned above you need to have the correct base( the one that matches with your skin tone), but before putting your base you need to moisturise your face.
  • Then apply either a BB cream or a base. But don’t overdo the BB cream. I would suggest to mix the BB cream with your moisturiser to have an even tone and equal effect of the cream.

  • Then on the application of your Base you can go for contouring by using 2 new set of base; one which is a tone lighter than your skin tone and another should be two tone darker than your skin tone. Then apply the lighter tone under your eye and on your nose. Then use the darker tone to highlight your cheek bone and your jaw line. Apply the darker tone on your jaw line and just below your cheek bones.
  • And then you can either smudge it using the right brush or you can use a make-up sponge.
How to apply highlighter
  • On smudging nicely you need to apply highlighter, like all the Youtubers you are not required to highlight your entire T-zone or your lips. Just rub your finger once on the highlighter and apply it on the top of your cheek bones.
REMEMBER : NOT ON THE CHEEK BONE BUT JUST ABOVE IT.
End result of the eye makeup
  • Then for your eyes; first fill your eye brows with an eye brow pencil. Because its the wedding try opting for shimmery shades, like golden, silver, or best is bronze colour. bronze shade or slightly orangish shade go well with wedding look. You do not have to smother your eyes with these just apply the eye shadow along the shape of your eye lid. And use the silver eye shadow to apply a very little amount on the corner of your eyes and finish off the type of liner you like. For the perfect wing use a spoon to help you get it right and then apply mascara.
  • Then take a dab of blush and apply it and finish it off with a pop lip colour; red, maroon, magenta whatever you like!

  • For the hair blow dry them upside-down. Go against the grain and for your crown backcomb your hair at the crown towards the roots. And for your bangs blow dry them in the opposite direction. This will give them a bounce and then you can either have big curls or you can straighten them.
  • That’s it for the make-up and hair but for the wedding guest attire remember if your outfit has a lot of work going on then opt for a subtle make-up but if its a simple one you can use a darker shade of lipstick to bring it all together. And prefer juttis instead of heals they are so in these days.

Tribute to the Sixties

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sixties is considered to be the most influential time for the fashion industry that we have today. From messy hairdos to skinny tights,  bold liners are the gifts of the sixties. It was the time that the world was moving towards modernisation and these trend setters made the transition even more easy. These women are considered to be the woman of their times. The ones who were bold enough to bring a change in the world of fashion.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Jackie was the real fashion First Lady of America. She was the wife of the 35th president of America, John F Kennedy. She became famous due to her impeccable style throughout her time in the White House. Jackie’s prim skirt suits, pillbox hats and super-sized dark glasses made her the style inspiration for women across America. The pink suit she was wearing on the day of her husband’s assassination has made a mark in history as one of the most iconic outfits of all time, and a staple 1960s fashion look.

Audrey Hepburn

LBB- Little Black Dress is her contribution, during her appearance in the movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s. She made LBB stand on the fashion map. And besides her debute movie she had the off-duty style game; she was an utter champion of chic capri pants and ballet pumps ( fashion staples of today’s time ).

Mia Farrow

The Rosemary’s Baby star and former wife of Frank Sinatra was an icon of the era, always adding a playful touch to her looks and paving the way for the likes of Alexa Chung with her Peter Pan collar dresses and off-beat shoe pairings. The elfin crop was made famous by Mia Farrow in the late 1960s and still continues to inspire the hair world today.

Twiggy

Twiggy, real name Lesley Hornby. Bob hairstyles were staples for 1920s fashion, but this girl cemented an even short hairstyle‘s place in history – the pixie crop. Twiggy quickly rose to supermodel fame, thanks to her paint ’em on thick eyelashes. Almost overnight she became the face of the decade; instantly recognisable. She has graced the covers of Vogue and Tatler.

Yoko Ono

She was the one breaking all barriers buy dressing in just one colour. Wide-brimmed hats and knee-high boots were her signature accessories during this defining decade. Yoko Ono has never done colour. From her private wedding to one of the most defining moments of the 60s, the John Lennon and Yoko Ono bed-in, the petite artist championed a head-to-toe white aesthetic.

Marianne Faithful

Just like her name she was faithful to her mini dresses. Marianne Faithful’s style was one of the most desired of the 60s. Her love for over-sized sunglasses, the shortest of minis and full, choppy bangs – all rounded off with a heavy rock ‘n’ roll attitude – some of the reasons she inspired some of the Rolling Stones’ biggest hits including You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Wild Horses, and I Got the Blues.

Brigitte Bardot

The world-famous French bombshell’s style was unabashedly sexy and defined 1960s fashion forever. She made messy, piled-high up-dos the hair of choice, and every girl wanted a piece of her signature confidence. Who knew that perfectly un-perfect, slightly parted fringe would still be so sought-after more than 50 years later?

Barbara Hulanicki

Known for her affordable velvet trouser suits and unisex T-shirts. Barbara Hulanicki opened the doors to her cult Biba boutique in 1964, a defining moment for 1960s fashion. Her shop became a hip hangout for artists, actors and rock stars including Mick Jagger and David Bowie.

 

The Crown

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Crown a series that made its debut in the year 2016, revolves around the life and reigning of the Queen Elizabeth II. Its only 2 years old but the way it has been shot makes your relive the era of the Queen’s rule. The beauty with which the whole series is shot and shown is just marvelous. After a point you are filled with remorse for not being born in that in era in Britain. Above how the Queen commanded during her reign and her whole life as a monarch, it seems the queen was rather a simple lady. A very generous lady who did justice to her title at every step of her life. The way she has been portrayed at times feels a bit fictional but on the contrary its not.

The real and the reel

The Queen of England was a lady of her actions and her unbiased opinions. She was not a Queen who longed for attention and validation. Her clothes were never loud but even more subtle and sopisticated. She adored pearls and so during her private audience or even her meeting she wore pearls as the only piece of jewellery. Also her elegant looks was something that made her who she really is. The Queen according to the series, The Crown had less admiration for make-up.

Real and Reel Queen

This clearly is the perfect example to say, ‘Simplicity is the perfect sophistication’. Simplicity and sophistication are the two faces of the same coin. If you wish to look sophisticated you ought to look simple, because simplicity gets the best of you. Hiding around make-up is the easiest thing to do, but guess what? Make-up can only hide spots and dark circles but what it cannot hide is your true self. Elegance brings out the true beauty, but for that people need to accept themselves with whatever shape and size  they are in only then can they convince others to accept them. And that can be infered from the series, The Crown. Princess Margaret, the Queen’s sister was someone who hid  behind her make-up something that I reckon after watching the series.

The real and reel princess Margaret

But lets keep the philosphical part at rest and focus more on the fashion part. Princess Margaret had a taste for fashion, she is probably the only character to seen following the latest trends during that time. She always wore eye liner and not in a loud fashion but again with sophistication in rather clean way. She had the latest dresses, be it the  corset dresses or the off shoulder dresses but always with kitten heels. And that was the same with the Queen as well, both the sisters wore kitten heels only. And they probably wore the best trousers, something we are still unable to achieve. From dresses to shirts to trousers though it might sound monotonous but on the contrary they were extremely stylish.

Reel and real princess Margaret

But while watching the series a thought crossed my mind that if the same clothes are to be worn in today’s day and age they’d still seem stylish. Fashion can be recycled and that is what you will feel upon watching the series. Certain trends of the 60’s have elegantly made their ways to our wardrobes.

All About Tresses!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Fashion industry is an ever evolving industry. Times have changed where everything was blingy. Moreover, everybody in the industry is striving towards the subtle yet royal style of dressing. Thats the same with hair dressing and hair colors. Initially, people just went global with only blonde or copper tones of hair color, but now that there is an abundance of hair color you can often spot odd colors making their way to people’s head.

Tones of hair colour

But hair color is not the agenda, the agenda remains hair care. Dyed tresses read comparatively more care than ordinary hair. Dyed tresses on being exposed to a lot of chemical and bleach become sensitive. Proper care ensures that your tresses instead of looking dry and frizzy look extremely soft and shiny.

Often getting coloured tresses people overlook the fact that just like any other body part hair also requires attention. And mostly people end up having dry, rough and brittle hair. That is because chemicals make your hair weak and brittle and this is always said that on getting your hair colour your tresses are more prone to be tangled. They’d times when no matter how many times you comb your tresses they still seem to be tangled and frizzy.

TIP 1 : Buy the right product

Yes, colour hair colour inspite being a bit costly requires you to buy the right product to make your colour stay for a longer time. Whatever your Saloon expert recommends STICK TO IT. They have probably a better idea of what suits best for your hair and therefore would always recommend the right thing. Also depending on the hair type it is not necessary for you to buy the conditioner along with the shampoo. L’oreal Vitamino Color Expert is the best.

Remember if you stick to your regular shampoo then there is a possibility that your colour won’t stay for long.

TIP 2 : Keep it cool

Cold water head wash

I have mentioned it before for regular hair and for hair with flakes but it seems to be true with coloured tresses as well! After being exposed to chemicals the only thing tresses don’t need is hot water. Keep at bay with steamy baths because they will definitely take life out of your hair. Hot water has the tendency to dry out the skin and scalp which is not a good news for your follicles. Cold water will make your tresses last longer and keep your healthier.

TIP 3 : Moisturise

Oiling the scalp

Like your body your hair requires fuel to look perfect and healthy and that fuel is oiling. A champi before the wash will keep the dryness away. Oiling will help in proving extra nutrients that your hair needs on getting dyed. One more meaning that you can draw out of moisturise is conditioning a deep conditioning can work wonder.

Remember too much chemicals can spoil the beauty of your hair.

 

TIP 4 : Don’t overdo it

For those who are frequent in dyeing their hair should give it a thought. If you tend to change your hair color frequently, try not to dye your hair any sooner than once a month at most. Over-dyeing your shafts will cause excess drying, split ends and bad texture.

Dear Departed.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Goodbye are the hardest for some and the easiest for the detachable. But for the former who think goodbyes are the  most difficult part of life. Be it the departure of a near and dear one on a new journey or someone leaving us for a new world greater than ours. Belonging to the part of the ones who are emotional and who feel goodbyes are always hard and full of heart pangs.

Be is the crying the only solution? Nah, crying almost increases the pain of letting someone go. So why cry and make it even more tough and unbearable. There are many ways one could easily say goodbye with definitely a lot less amount of tears.

Souvenirs turn into a friend at such occasions and they are somehow a cute memory to go ahead. They can be in a form of gifts, letters, cute cards, a journal and many things.

 A Goodbye Journal

 

A goodbye journal can be a small diary. It can include your pictures with small texts that remind you of all the time that you have spend together with that person. Journal can also be your feelings for the one leaving. It can include your experiences with your closed ones, narration of an incident. Or it can be a reminiscing thought of how your life will go through extreme alterations after the departure of your fellow.

 Sweet Memory

It can be the favourite food item that the one departing loves. Either you can arrange it, buy it or to attach more feelings to it you can cook it to show the importance of the person leaving. But all in good spirits. Food often gets the toughest things done in a rather softer way, conversations down over food are always cherished. These conversations are not sentimental rather mature.

 Hamper Pamper

Like the name suggests obviously means to gift all the favourite items in a box or basket. Hamper does the same thing like the food and the journal but more importantly it shows how much you value the person. It shows the care and the attention you have given to that persons likes and dislikes.

  Memory Jar

Like a tiny jar that has small notes of all the good or bad moments you have spent together with that person. It will not out bring out beautiful memories but will also make you realise the time magical time that has been passed with the person of your dear one.

 Planting Memories

As a goodbye gift you can choose to give a plant as a souvenir of friendship. More the plant grows more your bond grows and one can never forget the such a thoughtful gift. And, not just the gift but the person giving such an unforgettable gift is also equally remembered.

  Throw a PARTY!

 

What better than that? Probably NOTHING! Throw them a farewell party a night no one could ever forget. 100% tear free plan. Yes, no tears no drama just dance it out in a party, the last dance that lits them up1
