The Wedding Edit - Aanchal Gallery & La Belle Salon


The wedding season has officially arrived! For all you brides to be out there and not forgetting the sisters and friends of the bride, I am going to bring to you, my picks when it comes to putting the perfect bridal look together.

The two most important elements that will be captured in your wedding pictures, that you will cherish for life will be, surely, your outfit and your makeup. As a bride, these are the things you will be freaking out the most about and which, if done right, can make you look your prettiest best. There won't be a need to panic when you have the best of people attending to you.

The looks that I created with the help of these two amazing ventures left me looking as resplendent as a bride. The Aanchal Designer Gallery outfits, with the beautiful combination of muted tones of silver, grey and beige with pops of vibrant colours in pink or green, spell elegance and class all the way. Adding finishing touches to complete the look is of course the brilliant hair and makeup by Saba Poonawala, La Belle Salon, Bridal Studio and Academy.

Hair Color Is The New Makeup



Extravagant palaces, serene beaches and lush green gardens. Vibrant clothes, frolic and dance and grand buffets. Opulent clothes, exquisite jewellery and blushing brides. You guessed it right! Destination weddings are the most 'in' thing these days. Exotic destinations and creative themes teamed with the traditional 'Big Fat Indian Wedding' spells out a typical destination wedding. Every minor detail is meticulously looked after when it comes to planning a destination extravaganza and especially the wedding trousseau of the bride. Clothing, jewellery and make up, months of trials go into planning these out. Then why leave your hair behind and not complete your look?


We usually don't realize the importance of having the perfect hair color when it comes to the wedding day. Your hair color can make or break your entire look and Matrix can help you in perfecting your hair color game so it effortlessly blends in with your attire and accessories. Now, why is choosing the right palette of hair color as important as choosing the right palette of make up? Because hair color and styling is a critical part of putting together the overall look of the bride. The right hair color can add depth and dimension to your hair, complement your attire and definitely make you stand out.


Matrix, the leading Hair Color and Care brand, has brought out Destination Brides, a collection of three unique, stylist-crafted looks to celebrate the destination weddings through hair color that suit Indian skin-tones perfectly. The three looks are created using SOCOLOR by Matrix and inspired by three equally exotic and beautiful destinations: The Modern Maharani, The Ethereal Garden Bride and The Boho Beach Bride.

LODHA BELMONDO


A home for every weekend.

Wouldn’t it be great to get out of the city, escape over the weekend and rejuvenate yourself?
After a stressful week, all you want to do is to relax and unwind. What better place to do it than in a serene pool, with a cup of coffee, surrounded by greenery and enjoying a conversation with the one who is closest to you. It may seem like a dream but it could be a reality. If you agree with me then it’s time for you to go and get yourself a weekend home.

Only a short drive from Pune, Lodha Belmondo is 100 acres of a beautiful property, to which my feeble words probably won’t do justice.

Signal Hill Cape Town

Photo by Mikhail

Cape Town has been on my travel bucket list since a very long time and why not? Cape Town has it all : beaches, mountains, harbours and a laid back yet vibrant city life. The city is spread out from the foot of the magnificent ‘Table Mountain’ to the beautiful pristine beaches. A city you will be talking about for months to everyone you meet as you take back so much visual beauty in your memory. This was Surf's and my first time in Cape Town and we just couldn't get enough. 

Meeting Mikhail was truly one of the great things that happened on my visit to Afrika Burn 2017. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but also a most gracious host. Keeping to his words, he showed us around Cape Town and all its sights & splendours. Continuing our shoot from Bo-Kapp we drove up to Signal Hill.
