Great British summer is spreading its wings over London and it’s now time to make the most of it. I personally think summer is the best time to be in London. For most it’s the holiday season but if you truly want to make the most of London and British summer then stay put. This is the time to enjoy after office drinks, lazy summer picnics and just a glass of red wine in your backyard.Say goodbye to heavy layers and infuse some freshness to your light summer wardrobe.

On Day 2 of our holiday in Puglia, in southern Italy, we drove down to Alberobello. The very reason we planned our holiday was to visit the ancient white cone roof houses called Trullis in Alberobello, a UNESCO world heritage site. What we didn’t realise that it’s a very popular tourist destination and even in the non-holiday season there are queues to get into the city. Arpit’s broken Italian came in very handy when asking for directions, as the GPS didn’t take us to the main parking area. Continue reading
During this Easter break we decided to visit Italy for our annual holiday. The reason why we chose Italy was because of this song. Both me and Arpit fell in love with the beautiful white cone-roofed houses. We did some research to figure out the exact location of the scenic places featured in the video. Finally we were able to trace the place down to Puglia in southern Italy. Continue reading

Today’s blog post follows on from the brand collaboration post I did last month with Jara Wine. Today I’ll be talking about how you can style a little red dress for a day as well as a night look.
For my lookbook styling shoot with Jara I selected this eye-catching red Coco Rouge Dress from Jara’s limited edition collection. All of Jara’s clothes are made in UK using pure fabrics and that’s why the fabric feels silky smooth on your skin. Continue reading
This Mother’s day I wrote ‘Inspired by mum’ outfit post for House of Fraser’s blog, where I created a look taking inspiration from my mum. This month House of Fraser asked me to participate in ‘ What’s your Red Carpet Style’ competition where I had a to create my very own red carpet style outfit. Well I had a quick look in my closet and there was absolutely nothing that I could call as red carpet style. And frankly I did not have a reason to have one either. If I were to attend a red carpet occasion I would take inspiration from my favourite fashion celebrities like Victoria Bekham , Sonam Kapoor , Emma Watson and Alexandra Chung. I would probably choose something elegant yet with modern cuts and design. This dress below from French Connection which I wore at the #canthelpmyselfie event would come close to my red carpet style. All I need is the following items from House of Fraser to complete my look.
I think the above items would definitely do justice to my dress and create a stunning red carpet outfit. Do share your red carpet outfit ideas here . Would love to hear bout your choices. Till then shine on.

Today I would like to introduce my latest venture – Project ‘Shine On’ #shineon. I started The Red Notebook to share my love for good design and style. Along my journey I met so many beautiful women and every one of them had her own individual way of expressing their style. I drew a lot of inspiration from these everyday women and that in turn enriched my own personal style. Continue reading
