Use it to accentuate your home space with cushions, art posters, coasters, bedsheets, pillows, kitchen and bathroom decor. The Italian luxury fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana have recently introduced their range of kitsch kitchenware making it a high point in fashion.

A Whimsical Summer ! summer collection

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

– William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18

These opening lines of the sonnet describe so well the season of summer. It ushers in warm breezy days, beautiful scenic flower beds, vacations, trips to the beach, and lazy summer afternoons when you feel like lazing by the pool. Of course! I’m not here to talk about the poetic impressions of pleasant hot days but an equally exciting summer collection by the fashion brand Leelan .

Leelan has been manufacturing clothing since 1984, but only recently has it made its presence felt in the online business. The brand exclusively offers women’s western, casual, and street wear collections. Unique designs are created every week with close to 5-6 launches in a month. Their aim is to create a huge market of comfortable clothing in the near future. I enjoyed styling myself in their new summer collection outfits which are now available on the website.



I love the way the skirt is flirty and playful, it is so typical to style this kind of outfit for a summer outing especially a wonderful brunch with friends. The top compliments the sunny weather and naturally enhances the skin tone. It is very feminine and vintage, minimal accessories keep it simple and elegant.





Remember Kajol strolling down with Shahrukh in Dilwale, well I have tried to match that look with this colorful, flowly skirt and black top. It is ideal for a romantic date with your special someone.

The online store offers clothing in all sizes and if it can look so good on a curvy girl like me I can definitely vouch that you too will enjoy shopping from their range of casual and western wear. There are not just tops but palazzos, short dresses, shirts, stylish jackets, and shrugs to choose from.

I wish I had posed in a meadow or a garden with these lovely outfits, it really reminds me of romantic strolls down the streets of Paris or Venice. I really thank Leelan for allowing me to experience a whimsical summer with their collection. If you too wish to soak in the summertime classic look then head over to the site to shop for a fabulous summer!

Star Trek Beyond

The alien bashing crew has arrived with yet another complex masterpiece that has blown away the young and old audiences alike. Star Trek Beyond the highly anticipated sci-fi franchise legacy has finally arrived in India. Studio Talk has exclusively pioneered the promotion of this delectable series with engaging activities and created a new age buzz among the Indian cinegoers to lap up this space age madness. Caught between deep space adventures vs. stellar affinity the spectators are loving the #StarTrekinIndia experience and enjoying the outer space augmentation.


The series is the first sci-fi directorial venture of Justin Lin; the movie packs an admirable punch of guns and galore with the space age twist just like his previously directed action packed mayhems on the big screen. His crafty ability to shoot insane dialogue-heavy scene, innovative action sequences, and the knack of delivering a daring spectacle out of the cast makes the movie a highly successful must watch of the season. The tragic passing away of Anton Yelchin a month before the movies release have not affected the popularity among the scores of fans who have waited this long to relish the space vision of the Enterprise, his legacy will live on forever etched in the minds of millions.

Star Trek Beyond Attraction

The ruddy task taken on by the Enterprise to throw all intergalactic forces threatening to cause a galaxy pandemonium works bombastically in their favour. The musical score is fitting and badass especially the track Sabotage which directly portrays the essence of the storyline. Among the cast we have the eye-candy Chris Pine, the sultry Zoe Saldana who can sizzle on screen with her presence. The surprise package is newcomer Idris Elba as Krall the reptilian evil mind who contradicts the very foundations of the Federation. Each of the characters essays his portion with ease and aplomb.

This new age cinematic cult promises a dastardly plot waiting to unfold in the realms of above and beyond. It captures the imagination of every Star Trek fan and deviates from the traditional story- telling adding a much richer interstellar fusion of emotions and exploit.

When I Play with Interiors – Bedroom Edition

I know Polyvore is meant for all-things fashion but my love for creating home sets does not seem to end. Designing quirky, stylish, modern, subtle, and vintage bedroom decors has been my favorite pass-time. In this post I will feature a few of my choicest bedroom interiors.


A soothing calm to the room is attained by the subtle elegance of the interiors. The minimalist white and grey tones along with the fusion of indigo projects urban decadence.


Having a huge wall painting in the bedroom adds dimension and depth to the room. Throw pillows accentuate a laid back yet voguish option to heavy furnishings.

Bedroom #14

In this my equestrian love is depicted with the horses in the backdrop of a very vintage setting. The night sky and wooden candle holder elude magic and seems ideal for a farm house bedroom decor.


Imagine a beach house with such rustic white bedroom facing the sea, watching the waves crash on the shore from the comfort of warm blankets on a full moon night would be so romantic.

Beauty Sleep for Acne Free Skin

Today’s world is all about late nights and neon lights, as sleep deprived humans we forget that ‘Beauty Sleep’ is the key to a young rejuvenated mind, body, and soul. Especially after the end of the festive season one may notice that party nights and heavy makeup have taken its toll on the skin. No matter how much you try all that makeup in the bag cannot hide the fine lines, wrinkles, baggy eyes, and dull skin. The only solution for a clear glowing skin is daily 8 hours sleep. Don’t believe me? Well watch the video.

An independent experiment conducted by the beautiful Dorothy Collins in association with Adjustable Beds shows the correlation between sleep and acne. A good night’s sleep can do wonders and rid the skin of blemishes, scars, and dull spots. Dorothy changed her sleep patterns over a period of seven days and has chronological recorded the changes on the skin. You can read more about her views on The Adjustable Beds Blog.

A healthy sleep routine can end up giving you focused energy during the day, clear skin, low stress levels, and the urge to stay ‘fresh faced’ without any heavy make up on. The video is a reality check to listen to your body and reap benefits out of your beauty sleep, after-all as Dorothy rightly puts in “THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR MAKE-UP BAG IS YOUR BED.”
