It was nice to be in the middle of all the action and I got the opportunity to view designer shows and listen to some inspiring people from the fashion industry. Today I am really excited to share my video diary of the event and give you a little glimpse of my fashion journey. View my video diary below. Continue reading
After truly enjoying Day 1 it was time to experience the fashion buzz on Day 2. This time I went for a fashion meet-up in Somerset House. The place was buzzing with activity – photographers, fashion scouts, and models everywhere! As a newbie in this crazy fashion industry I was just in awe of everything happening around me.

Few weeks back I saw this picture of Victoria Beckham looking ultra stylish, wearing heels in a snowy New York. It made me laugh – fashion can be crazy at times. Last week it was all about New York fashion Week and fashion media went crazy reporting on trends, celebrities, street style and more. This week it was our very own fashion capital, London’s turn to be its stylish best. I was lucky to be invited to a few catwalk shows and fashion presentations last weekend as a fashion blogger for The Red Notebook. It was my first stint at London Fashion Week and I have to admit it was one crazy fashion experience. But I enjoyed every bit of it. Continue reading
With the run up to Valentine’s Day, my inbox is bombarded with valentine’s day gift suggestions, what to wear on Valentine’s and other marketing messages. Sometimes such a hype forces you to do something for your partner or husband, but to be honest I don’t believe in the idea of Valentine’s Day. To me it’s more of a marketing gimmick. However there is a flip side to this, the idea of Valentine’s does makes you think how you can make your loved one feel special. With this intention in mind I plan to share my today’s blog post and demonstrate how you can use simple craft and décor items available in your home to make your husband, partner or boyfriend feel special this Valentine’s.
What could be better than expressing your love through flowers. Roses are my favorite and with the onset of spring, a bunch of pink and white roses can instantly freshen up your home. Even if you do not plan to do anything special this Valentine’s make sure you buy some flowers for your loved one and if you want to go a step further, surprise them by getting them delivered to their work place.
To create my first Valentine display, I simply used bright pink wrapping paper, rustic rope and some roses. Simply wrap a small gift using bright pink tissue paper or normal wrapping paper (pink tissue paper’s better) and tie it with a rustic rope. The beauty of this idea lies in how you present the gift. Below are some ideas.
I strongly believe that way through a man’s heart is through his stomach. You could cook your loved one favorite food and enjoy a cozy night in. For young parents like us it’s the best solution but do remember to add some special touches to your night in. I do understand that you all have busy lifestyles as working processionals so I have a cheat option for you – don’t cook dinner, just make the dessert. Which is what I plan to do – I’ll make Kheer (Indian rice pudding) and serve it in a very romantic fashion using rose petals.
These are few simple ideas to make your Valentine’s Day special. So if you don’t have any big plan for the night then do enjoy you cozy night it. Just remember to make it a bit special for your loved one.
Winter dressing can be quite tricky, specially if you are someone like me who is not a big fan of heavy winter coats. During this year’s winter sale I was on a mission to find something light and warm but everything I liked was either sold out or not available in my size. Having spent my annual budget on winter sales, I decided to hold on to my shopping reins and search from the plethora of clothes in my wardrobe. Today I’ll be sharing my winter outfit idea and show how you can bring in some fun to your grey winter wardrobe. Continue reading

Happy New Year to all my readers. Hope you all had a fabulous start and your new year resolution is still intact – I broke mine today so it didn’t last very long. Today’s post is very important to me as I want to take this opportunity to thank a few people who made my Red Notebook journey extremely special.
2013 was an eventful year for me. A milestone year in my life where I was able to launch my dream project “The Red Notebook”. Balancing a full time job, a two year old and my creative ambition has been tough but when I go to bed at night I feel tired for the right reasons. Continue reading
Most of us here in the UK head out to sunny locations to get some winter sun. The grey and gloomy winter is a good excuse to find some solace in the warm weather. This year I was lucky to shun my heavy coats and boots and opt for my summer sandals – the sunny holiday destination was Goa. It was my first time in Goa and I was truly mesmerized by the place. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy the 4 S’s – sun , sea , sand and …. Continue reading
