There hot and cold atmosphere in Indian sub continent. It’s time for my favorite season, winters ! Here our regular writer (Zara Didi) re calls her feelings.
Unfortunately though, this year I am in Hyderabad which doesn’t exactly have winters and so here I am missing Delhi again. Nonetheless, Fall fashion is what I look out for each year because I have a huge thing for winter attire. Thus my this post is dedicated to Fall Fashion. After going through couple of magazines, blogs and websites, I have come across few must-do or must-have things for this year. I have tried to convey some of those through pictures here below. However, don’t expect furry jackets, boots, thick mufflers and beanies because I don’t have all my winter stuff in Hyderabad as I don’t need them (so at home back in Delhi). Feel free to take cues from these pics and come up with something of your own !

1. Bright colours, prints and Trench Coats

2. Leather and leather jackets

3. Jumpers/ Pullovers and the right amount of Bling

4. Print on Print

5. Coloured/ Bright/ Printed/ Slouchy Pants

6. Boxy Jackets & Booties

Palazzos have been a huge trend for quite a while and why not ?! The wide-legged pants are airy, makes your skin breathe, super comfortable and yet trendy. I had been doing random instagram posts on Palazzos and as per the comments I would recieve from some of my followers I could sense a little reluctance among girls as to how to wear the Palazzos right.

Thus here this post is an attempt to break the code. I have come up with seven, yes seven different ways to style a Palazzo pant that anyone can use for an outfit idea as per their personality. Furthermore, for the post I have used two Palazzo pants, one plain basic blue and one printed. The rest I’ll let the pictures talk to you

Vera Wang and Her Indian Hubby in Santa Monica for Indian Fashion Journal ! We had accompanied with the celebrity couple on the 8th and 9th, me and my hubby went on a road trip to California with our friends, Amy and Fabian. It was short, but fun. We lived at Hollywood, which was a complete different experience compared to Las Vegas. In General, Las Vegas does not have a lot of natural plants and lives. You can only go to the strip or downtown to see unique architectures. However, in Hollywood, or I should say in Los Angeles, blossoming plants are everywhere around you. There are also lots of unique graffiti on the wall.

The most exciting part of the trip would be going to the Santa Monica Beach, it was my first time going to the beach in America. The second most unforgettable experience would be casting at The Ford Modeling Agency. I didn't plan to do it, I was just there for Amy; however, she encouraged me to do it, and I did it! It was pretty simple, all I did was completing a form and taking pictures.

We went to a restaurant that sells organic burger. We ordered burgers as well as sweet potation fries. The desert, Vanilla ice cream with brownies was the best among all, we were so attracted to it and forgot to take pictures. I hope I would be able to visit California more often. Thank you for reading.

The year is almost coming to an end and Its hard to believe! From florals to monochromes and mints to prints, 2013 has been a great year for me. In terms of fashion and styling, I was pretty obsessed with the bright neon hues and bling this year hence, in this post I've combined both of them.

Whether we choose to consciously compute the fact or not, how we look does impact the way we feel. It may be that we dress to a theme that evokes a mood, that we choose to pull on something that incites a certain confidence within us, or that we simply fall in love with a particular piece of clothing or accessory. Each year we analyse what’s happening in the fashion world as a way to understand where the trends are coming from, where they are going and how you can adapt them to your own personal style, in a way that suits you.

So girls, that time of the year has arrived when you jazz it all up, December being one of those months where parties and night outs just don't seem to end, you better be prepared!

I've customised this neon orange shirt and added sequin to it partially, as neon and sequin are both eye catchy elements of an outfit and mixture of the two becomes too loud if worn together. Christmas and New year's being round the corner, it's time to 'Bling it on', pretty ladies.
Wish you all a very happy new year. I hope this New Year will be great and full of happiness for all of you. Did you guys made any resolutions? I didn’t plan out any. I will be going with the flow this year.

Today I am going to review Khadi Aloevera Glowing pack review. I like Khadi face packs. They work well for my skin so I picked this up. And this face pack contains aloevera which is a boon for all skin types. As we all know Aloevera works like magic on all skin types so this pack can be used on all skin types.

Price: INR 150 for 60gm (50gm plus 10gm free)

Shelf life: 2 years

About the product: An Aloevera based face pack which improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity. An ideal preparation for skin tightening and make healthy.

Directions for use: Apply the past on wet face for 15 min, let it dry and wipe it with moist cotton.

Ingredients: Aloevera Tourn 10g, Cucumis sativus 3g, Ash of Zincum 4g, Glycerine 15g, Sodii Biboras 6g, base 84g, Preservative 5g, Calamine powder mitti 15g, Kaolinum 300g, Citrus limon 4g, Purified water.

My experience with Khadi Aloevera Glowing Pack:

The pack comes in transparent tub with white paper covering showing the details of the pack. The tub has black lid and it comes with aluminium foil inside to prevent any spill before opening the product. Also it ensures that the pack is unused and untouched. Some might not like the fact that it comes in a tub but I feel face packs in tubs are better than in tube. I always apply a face pack with brush so I feel more comfortable when I get them in tub.

The face pack is white in colour with a slight tinge of green colour. As soon as I opened the pack, I was mesmerized with the smell. Oh!! I wish I could describe it to you. It is nice and fresh. It gives you a feel as if you are in a garden. So refreshing. The consistency of the pack is neither thick nor very liquidy. It is just apt to directly apply on face. It is a clay based pack and it glides on smoothly and gets dried in 15 minutes. While applying it gave a stinging sensation but that lasted for only few seconds. I kept it for 15 minutes and then removed it with a sponge. I felt that my face was fresh and my skin was glowing. I agree all such packs saying glowing has a temporary glow which go after few hours but I just love the kind of glow it provided. It left my face squeaky clean with making it dry. Overall I just loved the face pack and my skin looks much healthier with constant use of the pack. I use it on every alternate day.

Pros of Khadi Aloevera Glowing Pack:

• Affordable
• Easily available online
• Smells really nice
• Gave instant glow. Apt to use before any sudden plan.
• Did not made my skin dry
• Friendly packaging
• Lasts long
• Does not cause pimple

Cons of Khadi Aloevera Glowing Pack:

• No cons. I am totally loving the product

Will I recommend or repurchase Khadi Aloevera Glowing Pack?

Yes, I guess this will be a face pack which you will always see in my vanity. I definitely recommend this to you all.
